I recently purchased a Brother Scan N Cut and have been having a lot of fun creating both cards and home decorations like this Mum Luminary from Dreaming Tree (3dsvgcuts.com). The video directions on their website are very easy to follow along. I've used two small battery operated tea lights for the illumination. One at the top inside the flower and the other inside the base where the light can shine through the vellum.

Back in Five ....
It's been a busy five years with grandchildren, selling homes, relocating, etc. The last time I had a post was five years ago and my first granddaughter had just been born. I am now the grandmother of three beautiful girls. And, as any grandmother will tell you, it is just the best!
The one constant though has been paper crafting. I've still been enjoying making cards and scrapbooking, although not with the consistency I was able to do before. But now that our relocation is complete and all my things are back in place (and I am retired!) I am finding more time to have fun!
My latest purchase is from Stampin Up and is the Owl Builder punch. When I purchased it I thought, wow what a cute way to make a little owl for a card or scrapbook page. I started looking at different websites and blogs and saw how many different things you can do with this punch. It is so versatile. Here are just a few of the cards I've made.
|America card was made cutting the ears off of the owl body to make this patriotic bird. The hearts on each side are also from the punch. An embossing folder was used on the white background paper as well as the starred red background.|
|These little chicks were made by again cutting the ears off of the owl body. The fence and leaves are sizzix dies. The flower is made using a five petal punch.|
|Name place card using the owl punch. The wings are a scallop punch which I've cut in half.|
