I found this cute Silhouette pic on my cartridge for the circuit machine. I thought that this is a good motif for a baby card.  I designed a baby phrase with the Cameo Studio, cut 2 borders and glued them to the edges.  Two great layered labels in different sizes are the background for this little adorable girl and the baby buggy.

Can you imagine how you feel on a hot summerday? Don´t you wish yourself taking a bath in a deep cool water? Let your minds flow....!
And here is my work for the summer theme!
For this card I made a journal, which was cut with the Cameo. First I made the phrase and sketched it with the black sketch pen. Then I layered the different sizes of the journal. I also used different patterned paper. The colors of the pattern repeat themselves in the card papers. You see, the front side alone could be a card for a special occassion with an adage.The tag in the inside also made in this way. The flowers are from Prima Marketing and, correct!........cut by the Cameo with the same patterned papers.

When I saw the - Tag it Kit - file by Lifestyle Crafts my first thought was, WOW, this is a "must have"! Christmas can come!
The tag and the holder are matched in the size and I embellished this great tag with other little tags from this set. So, heart and butterfly are a part of this file.
I made a Wedding or Valentine tag, you can use it for both.
You’ll be able to purchase this form our shop and store soon.
