Spring Time Girl and Clowns

I print than cut the following images using my Cricut Explore....


This image is from the Spring Time ChooChoo Train Kit for May from Creative Kuts.  I first placed each piece together, using Make the Cut software and exported as a jpeg file.  Converted to png format in paint.net and than loaded into Cricut Design Space and print than cut.  I will be posting the final layout of Spring Time layout in another day or so.


I created this image from Scrappy Dew's Clown Set.  I am planning to use in a Circus Mini-album later.

And this is pictures I took today of two pin oak trees that we planted a couple years ago and now have gotten taller; and a picture of a flower garden that I have named after my granddaughter's, the Alexis and Kassidy Flower Garden...




That's it for today, so will close out saying .... thank you for stopping by to visit with me and hope your day is full of crafting.

HomeMade Saturday - Raggedy Ann 25"

Hi all, I am here to share with you a sewing project I've been working on for a month to six weeks.  About two years or slightly more my niece asked me if I would make another Raggedy Ann doll for her oldest daughter, Julisa as she applied make-up to her 15" doll and didn't like the doll....

So I decided to make a 25" doll for replacement and here is pics of the doll....

 
Doll w/out her hair

 

Finished project.  

and the tag:


Ragdolls by Scrappy Dew.com .  Printed and cut using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio DE software.  Actually, I loaded file into my Make the Cut software, put all the pieces together to form the Raggedy and saved as a png file so I could print and cut (or if I prefer, print than cut on the Cricut Explore.)

Using Inkscape and Studio DE I created a little tag as a card, so my sister and I could sign the inside.  I know there will be a happy 10 year receiving this doll by the end of this week.  And I will be cutting and sewing together another 25" Raggedy Ann doll for her 3 yr old sister.  

Thank you for visiting with me and happy crafting.  Enjoy spring wherever you are and be safe.

Good morning and hope your Saturday will be a great one for you...

Today's posting is a Mini-photo/Journal Album I am creating for my granddaughter and family and utilized the image from Scrapping With Lisa Designs

http://www.scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/images/large/Family1053x745.png 

And here is my project:


Basically this will be a Journal/Photo Album of the great-grandkids.  I've included a baby from another file in this project as my granddaughter is expecting a baby girl on July 4, 2015.  Don't want to leave out the baby.  

The edges of front cover not covered (not sure I will cover it with washi tape or paper) because I have not completed the inside of the cover.  The pages will include birth, birthdays, holidays and there will be pages or tags for journaling.  

Cardstock and design paper from my Stampin! Up stash, the hearts came with a card kit and ribbon a gift from a friend in Canada.  I used Prismacolours and Bic Markers for coloring along with one Copic marker for the skin coloring.  It will be bound using The Cinch from We R Memory Keepers.

Thank you for taking time to visit with me and may you have a blessed day.
