I did this birthday card for my daughter in February. The stamp is by Unity and I loved it so much, I had two so I did this card and gave my daughter one of the stamps, I did a little pop up inside. The pop up is a Stampin Up die.

Today's cards are both those large cards I am doing for work. They are 5.5 by 8.5 inches. The are both done with Silhouette cut files. I really like that I can size the files to fit the card I am doing.
The purple and teal card has some bling added because the paper stuck a bit to the adhesive cutting mat. Usually I would just flip it over but in this case, I couldn't.

Continuing on my love of pop ups, Here is a carousel that I also cut from a Silhouette file. I had to do it the same way as the piano but it too many more sheets. after being cut, I would hand cut the individual parts.

I love pop ups. Pop Up books, cards, art. Any popup! It is so fun to open! This was a Silhouette file I got. The silhouette designer didn't give any help to do more than cut it. I cut it out of black and a colored paper. I removed the piano from the colored paper and layered it over the black layer. I cut the small keyboard out of white as well. Then, I took two pieces of purple cardstock and layered them as the front and back, sandwiching the black layer in the middle.
It is decorated with peel-offs, washi tape, and embossed paper.

Here is another big card for work. The deer and trees are cut with Silhouette. The words are from a Stampin Up die that I trim. It is a cake die for doing pop up cards but it is a nice size for these big cards so I have used it several times. The Silhouette files work good here because I can size them for the big cards.

Today, I am sharing a photo again. I love the world around me. There is so much beauty. This is a lighthouse near Silver Lake Michigan. I took the picture with my phone. You would never know it was horribly windy this day for the serenity of the pictures

I am doing large birthday cards for work. We have a team of 40 people and so there has to be lots of room for signatures and messages. It is a challenge to do that. I usually do 4.25 by 5.5 inch cards which is half a sheet of card stock folded in half. For these, the card is 5.5 by 8.5. The stamp here is by Taylored Artwork.

For Easter, I made all kinds of bunny themed containers. I made 40 bunny butt baskets for work. Then there was 8 bunny face baskets and 8 bunny faces on juice boxes fro church classes. All the punches were Stampin up punches. Cheeks were a 1 inch punch. Eyes were 3/4 and 1/2 inch punches. Nose is a mini heart. Ears were oval punches. The basket is the fry box die. The bunny butt baskets have an oval punch used to create a handle.

I have lots of projects I have done over the last year and I haven't shared. I have just challenged myself to post something everyday for 30 days. It will mostly be things I don't remember all the details of but at least it will be shared. Today, I will share some photography. I am have obsessed with mushrooms this year. All these pictures were taken with my phone. Most of them were taken around my family cottages near Hart Michigan.
