I moose you


Hi ya! I don't usually post a project on Sundays but I thought I'd share this card to give you an idea what you can do with this week's freebie, while the file is still available.


It's a really simple and easy card to make actually- just arrange the elements for the background, print-and-cut the card base, and adhere the assembled moose over it.


Click HERE to get your moose graphic and cut its. It'll be available for free until midnight MST tonight. The price may indicate $1 on the general page but once you click to see the product detail, the $0.00 will show.

If you are reading this post after the freebie has expired, you may like to know that the regular price is only $1. You can also use this card idea with another image of your choice. Just change the greeting to suit the image.

The Frog Days of Summer


Here is another card that I finished designing at the same time as last week's Just Chillin' Panda. I've been putting off cutting and assembling the card but I finally managed to get it together today. Yay!


The design of this card is pretty simple-- the background is print-and-cut while the main image was cut out of different colored cardstock and layered together. I like to use foam tape to adhere the layered cutouts to the card front because it adds dimension and makes the project look more interesting.


Here is a screenshot of my Silhouette Studio (DE) virtual mat....


... and here's the finished card.

Hope you like it. :-)

http://interneka.com/affiliate/AIDLink.php?link=www.letteringdelights.com/cut-sets/cut-sets/pool-party-cs-p13474c5c12&AID=39954

Oh, lookie! I actually found the time to make a card! lol. The kids are on Summer Break and I have temporarily given up my Me-Time for Kiddie-Time. Luckily, we found some Shopkins, Season 3 series the other day and the girls were happy to leave me alone to play with paper, while they play with their new toys.

http://interneka.com/affiliate/AIDLink.php?link=www.letteringdelights.com/cut-sets/cut-sets/pool-party-cs-p13474c5c12&AID=39954

The card base of today's shaped card was made by print-and-cut. The panda was cut out from different colored papers and layered together. I adhered the panda to the card base with foam tape for added dimensions.

Here's a quick video clip to show you how I made this card.  You may have to click on the image below for the animation to start:

Bread Box


During Spring Break, my 12 year old kid (Twin A) asked to play with my bread making machine. I told her to go for it and long story short, we haven't bought any bread from the grocery store since. :-) Twin A and her sister, Twin B love making bread for their sandwiches. However, a 2-lb loaf of sandwich bread is pretty big and hard to store. It wasn't long before I found myself shopping for a bread box.

from my Instagram page

I didn't realize that it would be so hard to find one that I liked! Most bread boxes out there are too small while those that did fit were either too expensive or not my style. I was happy when I finally found one that I did like but the price was waaaay above my budget. Then I came across the Jamie Oliver Vintage-Inspired Tin Bread Box.

Love the style of this box! Don't love the look of the word "Bread". :-(

It's so cute! I love that the cutting board serves as the lid and I adore the rounded-corner rectangular shape. From the reviews, folks are saying that a 2-lb loaf would fit inside. The price is high but not as bad as the one that I had my eye on. Everything about it seemed like it was exactly the box I was looking for except that I didn't like how the printed "Bread" label looked. That typeface is not my style and I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a box that I don't love 100%.

After that, I gave up. My search for the perfect bread box has ended with me telling myself that it was simply not meant to be. I'll just have to find another way to keep our breads.
photo from crateandbarrel.com (This box is sold out online but you may be able to find it in-store)

Almost as soon as I had given up, the heavens shone their light down on me. Well, actually it was a shiny yellow tin box that I spotted but the color was so bright, it could have come from the heavens. I was shopping at Crate and Barrel when I chanced upon the box. Suddenly, a light bulb moment! I could make this my bread box! Plus, I could label it any way I like with anything I want! YAY!

As soon as I got it home, I whipped out my roll of metallic silver vinyl, switched on my Cameo and cut out "Bread" in the exact font that I wanted. The LDJ Owl Scratch font is whimsical and playful and when I put the vinyl cutout onto the tin box, it looks as if one of the kiddos had scratched out the word. Haha, PERFECTO!!


I couldn't be happier with my box. The yellow color adds a bright spot in my otherwise dull kitchen while the kiddie-looking "scratched out" label reflects the fact that the bread inside was baked by the kids.

Now if only I could convince the twins they need to start making dinner...
