Let Us See Your Layers

Are you sitting down or did you fall down when you actually saw I had done two posts in less than a week? I have been terribly bad about participating in any challenges or posting on my blog. I wish I could tell you I'm going to be better in the coming weeks, but I can't. How I ever found time to work is beyond me.

I have finally made a card to enter in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog for this week. The theme was lots of layers, and I think I've complied with that request.

I saw a card on Pinterest using trapezoid layers. I started in that direction designing in my Silhouette software, but then I wanted a sentiment that had something to do with angles. When I found this sentiment, I changed my layers from trapezoids to triangles(sorry girls it's the mathematician in me). I even created the triangle edged border with my Silhouette software.

The papers are from Lily Bimble's digital kit called Fiesta. I used photoshop to match the colors in the paper in order to create some solid colored cardstock. I found the sentiment by Googling angle quotes. I guess they figured I couldn't spell, because I got a lot more results for angel quotes than angle ones.

This image from the Sassy Cheryls Stamp Store is called Just so Be Yourself.

There's still time to join the challenge, so come on get busy.

A Show Me Thursday Post

Here it is the end of March, and I've done exactly two blog posts this year. It doesn't mean that I haven't been doing anything, just the opposite, doing way too much.

Most of my doings have to do with using my Silhouette Cameo(have I told you lately how much I love my Cameo?). I use it for making just about everything. The software is so versatile especially with the Print and Cut feature.

One of the neighbors has a daughter graduating from the Mississippi School of the Arts. She only gets 6 invitations, so I made announcements to send out.  Along with the announcements I also created some thank you cards that matched the announcements.

My latest toy is a heat press machine. My Weigh Watcher buddies are doing our 10 Anniversary Camp Taz next week. We're making new T-shirts, and this time I'm making them rather than paying to have them made. Everyone is bringing their shirts and those not coming mailed me theirs. I cut the design out of vinyl, and used my heat press to firmly affix  it to the shirt.

Finally, it's April and time for my walking buddy's annual Spring neighborhood get together. Here are the invitations I created along with the envelopes. Hopefully she got them in the mail today.

So that's what I've been up to so far this week. Now to get myself back into card making.

Now let's see what you're working on and post it on the Sassy Cheryls Blog for Show Me Thursday. You have until Wednesday, April 2 at 5 p.m. EST to get your entry in for a free Sassy Cheryls image.
