Bowling For Bites October 23, 2016 Mentor, Ohio

My daughter, Dawn Richardson, has undertaken a fund raising event to benefit the NFED (National Foundation For Ectodermal Dysplasias).  Their mission is to empower and connect people touched by ectodermal dysplasias through education, support, and research.

I am touched by ectodermal dysplasias.  My granddaughter, Savannah, was diagnosed with this when she was about 3 thanks to Dr. Mike Fioritto.   It has since been found she will only have 8 adult teeth.   I cannot stress enough that this fund-raiser is not to benefit Dawn or Savannah.  All proceeds are to benefit the NFED. Please, take a moment and check the NFED link, and then under news and events. You will find Bowling for Bites listed there.  That said...  let us continue!

We have some wonderful raffle prizes lined up.  There will also be a 50/50 raffle.  Below is the team registration form if you would like to form your own team.

If you are unable to attend the sponsored event, and would still like to donate, please visit the Crowdrise fund raising page and Savannah's story. You can also click on Savannah's image to visit Crowdrise.

I realize this post is really off topic for me, but I have really been touched by this birth defect.  I am very proud of both Dawn and Savannah for undertaking this event.

Welcome To The Blop Hop Featuring Dreaming Tree SVG Files!

Thank you for participating in the June Blog Hop Featuring Dreaming Tree SVG Files. To enter for your chance to receive a Dreaming Tree Gift Certificate you must leave a comment. The more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances you have to win! Contest runs from 06/10/2016 12:00 AM EST to 06/13/2016 11:59 PM EST. 1 winner will be awarded from each blog and 1 grand prize winner will be awarded based on all comments from all blogs. Winners will be posted by June 15, 2016. Please check back to see if you are a winner! 

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE playing with paper.  I have been creating things using SVG files for quite a few years now. Dreaming Tree creates the best SVG files out there.  I simply love their instruction sheets and video tutorials.  Leo Kowal, owner, takes SVG creation to a new level, creating designs that easy to assemble.

A dear friend recently lost her mother. I chose the Lily Cascade Card from Dreaming Tree to create a sympathy card. The Lily Cascade is available individually or as part of a bundle.

The original SVG file has different flowers.  I wanted to add some additional depth and color to the card, so I used different flowers.  I have 5 cutting machines.  The latest is the Cricut Explore Air which I am still learning to use. So far, my machine of choice is the Silhouette Cameo. I also have an Eclips and 2 Cricut Expressions.  I created my project using the Cameo. Software and the ease of use is very important to me.  I personally find the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to be the easiest  to use.  A list of supplies follows the photo of my final project.

List of Supplies:

3 sheets of 12x12 Shimmer White from Creative Memories
1 sheet of 8.5x11 Shimmer Silver from Creative Memories
1 sheet of 12x12 Cloud 9 Design Specialty Card Stock
Inkadoo Stamp Block
Stampin' Up Ink Pads - Garden Green and Rose Red (on the flowers)
Stampin' Up Ink Pad - Smoky Slate (on the tag)
Sizzix Stamper Secret Weapon
Stampin' Up Rose Wonder Collection - With Sympathy Stamp
Heartfelt Creations -  Open Leaf Dies and Stamps
Heartfelt Creations - Water Lily Dies and Stamps
Sizzix Big Shot including the magnetic plate
Tape Gun
Stampin' Up Fine Tip Glue Pen
Zig Memory System Two Way Glue Pen

There you have it.  Dreaming Tree SVG files that create beautiful and unique cards and other 3D projects!  Be sure to leave your comment for an opportunity to win the $10 Dreaming Tree Gift Card.  Blog Hop Participants follow and thanks for stopping by!

Paper Crafting Tools 101

I am VERY excited to announce that my daughter, Chrissy, and I will begin teaching classes at Pat Catan's in Painesville, Ohio.   Our first class is on May 24, 2016 and begins at 6:30 PM and runs until 8:30 PM.   We will be making small bouquets.  Participants will be learning to work with floral tape, some chalking techniques, and how to assemble this SVG file.  (This week's file is from the Mom's Garden Gifts from SVG Cuts. Please note that only pre-cut paper is provided, not the actual SVG files.)

While a project will always be created, the class is intended to address questions people have on various creative tools.
