Tut: More Flowers

I’ve been messing with flowers the last two days and today I made this for M. This flower hair piece was created using two tuts… or a combination of. The main idea came from this party flower tutorial minus step 5. Instead of the fluffy look I wanted to do this flatter look based on the Fabric Flower tutorial (plus I only have this fabric, scissors, white thread, and a needle). The two tuts were created by the same person. Pretty neat huh? Next time I’m going to use these flower techniques using pattern/tissue paper. I think it’ll give the

Tut: Spiral Paper Flower

Jovie’s laying on my lap sleeping and here’s me bloggin’. I can use a nap but I think I’m ok. I did get a card put together and I even did something extra… followed a tutorial on how to make this pretty paper flower (very fun blog! You should give it a few minutes of your time!!). It took a bit to get it right but once I got the hang of it it’s easy. If you want to try this flower out, follow the instructions and once you get to the end, let go of the flower and let

M’s Present by Hubby and I

Today the moving folks came to take part of our stuff. Even though it hasn’t really hit us, our (slow) big move to England is finally starting. We can’t wait and in my head I’m imagining all the places we’ll see and the food we’ll eat. You all know I LOVE to eat. You should have been there for our first date. I ate everything on my plate! My then not-even-boyfriend was in awe. It’s amazing that he called me up again the next day he he… Today I took lots of naps and by late afternoon I was feeling

Photo Tut: The Manual

Hey folks, it’s me again and this time I’m going to be writing about… photography! As you know I’m no pro but I LOVE LOVE LOVE to take pictures and read + learn whatever I can to make my photos better. I’m going to start sharing my knowledge in hopes that it’ll help you too. I’ve gotten some emails on this topic… how-to do something with the camera/software or which camera to buy and stuff. Then lately I’ve been seeing blog posts asking how to take better pictures for their cards and families. There’s probably already something out there but

Tut: Pencil/Brush Tool to Create Dotted Lines

Ok, this is the last of this series. To watch the previous two, just go up to the Digi Tut menu option and check them all out there. This is just a short little post.  I am behind in lots of stuff, including blog hoping — even my PTI blog hop I’m still in process of cause I keep getting interrupted by the Jove. She’s been all about mom lately. No dad or M. Just mom. It’s flattering but goodness, I can’t even go pee without her screaming her head off… if she’s awake that is. I guess I can

Tut: Bunny Ears Ribbon Tying

Ok gals, some of you requested a video on how to tie the bunny ear bows. Well I’m not sure if it’s the proper way but it’s how I do my ribbon tyings.  It’s not the best video because I did it really quick but I hope the visual in the video can help you tie your ribbons better. I never cut my ribbon before I am done tying. I think I waste less ribbon doing it this way. If I have too long of an edge I’d take my bow apart and shorten it and redo the process again.
