You are my Sunshine / no svg to share today (sorry)

This is a layout of my Son Aiden playing in the little pool we have set up on the deck.  The small pic on top is him saying enthusiastically "CHEESE" , he is such a ham!

A close up of some of the stitching and the title, an SVG title I got from Just Yolie's blog, she is a sweetie and shares alot of svg's & great projects.

The wave border & sun are svg's, but I don't remember where I got them from, but the flourish I picked up from Images by Heather M.  She is awesome, she has alot of great svg files and a wealth of tutorial for SCAL & Inkscape.

I hope you like it, I kinda love this one, so bright and cheery & he just looks so so cute!!!
Thanks for stopping by.  xxx, Staci

Quick layout ~ SMILE

Simple layout, just stiched some scrap patterned paper together on a mat, added a pic of course, some stiching around the photo and entire layout, buttons & a title (I tried to mimic the colors in his bib onto the title) Kinda tied the bottom patterend paper to the top of the layout.
This is a picture of my son Aidens first caught on camera smile ~ he is almost 2 months old in this photo. This is Creative Scrappers #107 sketch. Well off to work soon & then to Atlantic City for a few days, just to sit on the beach, take the kids to the Cape May County Zoo & chillax!!!

Hope everyone is having a great day celebrating with family and friends, I just wanted to post this before we head out to the neighbors for their annual 4th of July bash.

I am on a roll, this is the second layout I have completed in two days.. WOW!!, and I have a third that is just waiting on pictures. Have you ever taken a picture and load it up onto the computer and it just hits you right away - "I need to scrap this" and you know exactly what you want on it, from the title to the papers, colors everything. OF COURSE IT DOES!! WHAT AM I ASKING ~ YOU ARE A SCRAP~BOOKER!!
well, that is what happened to me and I don't print my pics from the computer (don't like the way my printer does them) so it is sitting on my work area awaiting it's photos.

Anywho, this is my daughter Kira at age 4. I used a sketch from scrap / sketch #27. The daisies are an svg from Shirley's blog ~ Paper,Scissors, Ink. The daisy circle is from Paulo's blog SCAL-files (I think). I don't have a clue where I got the fence file from (looks like the sizzix die cut fence). I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Hot Rod / SOUS / svg to share

This is my take on the sketch this week over at Stuck on you Sketches
they added an extra challange this week to use red, white & blue on your layout. Well I incorporated red, white & blue on my layout but not in the way that they may have meant (4th of July) none the less I got those colors in my layout. :0)
Also I have the motorcycle svg to share that I used on this layout.

Wedding cards and an SVG to share / BSC #5 /cuttlebug challenges

This is the bridal shower card.... all svg's were used on this card except for the doily.
I unfortunately don't remember where the dress, & flourish svg files came from, but the leaves aI converted from a picture on EBAY (these are the MS frond leaf punch I was asking about in a prior post) I will share the file if anyone is interested.
I welded & cut some ovals to add some dimesion to the dress & embossed both the oval piece and the dress, layered them and added pearls around the waist and some lace to the bottom, stickles all around the edges for sparkle & texture. The roses are fabric & I added stickles to both the roses & the leaves.
Click here for the file! Enjoy
This is just a simple card that I am going to give with the wedding gift.
I took a plain white card and stamped the flourishes all around the edges to make a patterned paper look. Then I embossed the mat & framed it with pearls.

I entered these cards to the Beary Scrap Challenge #5 Emboss it!
I also started the Sisterhood of Scrap Summer Sizzler Challange & put these into that.
I know I will never win that one, since I lost my mojo & don't have to much time to scrap especially in the Summer time, but I will give it a try!

Firework SVG

Here is a firework SVG to use on those 4th of July projects... the dust coming from the firework you will have to draw in, there were too many tiny pieces & I don't think they would have cut well at all. You may need to cut this a little on the larger size due to the thin streams. Hope it cuts well (not tried it yet) Click here to download. Enjoy!
