To make my shaker, I cut 4 snow globes from “cereal weight” chipboard, plus a brushed gold and sandwiched my “snow” in between, using stamp set packaging.

Sunflowers and Sunshine!


I love sunflowers… no, I LOVE sunflowers! How perfect to use one of the October sets from ODBD, Be a Sunflower, to embellish a picture frame for my son’s birthday this week.

I had fun taking pictures of my granddaughter, Rosalie, his little girl, in a huge sunflower field. Just perfect picture for the frame!

I cut a mat from Follow the Sun paper, using Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, and Rounded Rectangles.  I stamped and colored the sunflower images, then used the coordinating die, Sunflower to cut them. I also used Stitched Leaves from this month.  
I stamped and die cut the layers with Ornate Ovals.

Jared got a promotion not long ago, so this can hang in his new office!

Now, I have to tell you, I was excited to see this fantastic release not only for the ADORABLE wild animals, but also for this animal so close to my heart!! A LLAMA!!!

And… not just any llama, but my very own Scout’s October Twilight, or Tobi for short!! Thanks, Kelley, for using Tobi as your model!

I stamped, colored and cut the image with Pierced Ovals, layered on Ovals, and embellished with Grass Hill, Grass Lawn, Bitty Blossoms out of Boho Bolds, and Fence cut twice and put together to make it larger. The sentiment is stamped over an air-brushed sky.
