Lori Whitlock April Creative Team Blog Hop



Hi there and welcome to the Lori Whitlock April Blog Hop!

Here is the blog hop order this month.

Brandie


Any Disney fans out there?! Disneyland is one of my familys favorite palaces to visit. We are always making plans to go again. After seeing the new Wish Upon a Star collection by Echo Park I wanted to create a fun saving jar for our next trip.

The cut file I used  is the Valentine Mailbox you can find it here in Loris shop and here in the Silhouette store. This little mailbox could be converted to any type of saving jar. A new couch, a trip to Hawaii, or just a rainy day fund.



Thanks for stopping by and having a look. Brigit is next up on the hop.

Lori has some really fun thing available this time too. Go check them out!

Rolled Flower Arrow Sign Tutorial for Lori Whitlock Creative Team


Hi there crafty friends!

One of my goals for this year is to complete several of my in process projects. I am guilt of starting several projects at once then not finishing them to start something else. Ha! I hope I'm not the only one!



This sign is one of those projects. I attended Pinners conference two year ago and purchased the kit to make this sign. For the longest time I only had the arrow painted on the wood. Yesh!  The original design included felt flowers that I did not like so being the paper loving girl I am I found some rolled flowers that are perfect.

I used Rolled Flower 30, Rolled flower 31, and Rolled flower 32. You can find them in Loris shop and in the Silhouette store.

I uploaded the flowers into Cricut Design space duplicated and resized them to have three different sizes.



I cut the flowers out of 65lb cardstock. I prefer the lighter cardstock for making flowers. I find it easier to work with. I started with the outside end and wound the petals toward the center circle. While still holding the flower I loosened my grip on the flower to let it out a little. I applied some hot glue to the circle then pushed the petals down on the glue. I then flared the petals out to create a more natural look.


I dry fit the flowers on the arrow first. I then glued the leaves on the flowers and then glued the flowers onto the arrow.


I have this sign as part of a gallery wall in my front entire. That's it for me today.



Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card Mini Album


Hi there! Here is a tutorial on how I made this mini album for my Christmas cards.

I have been wanting a cute way to display the Christmas cards I get every year and this little album will do the trick.

I used the Mini Album Rounded Corners file you can find it here in Loris shop and here in the Silhouette Store.



After I uploaded the file to Cricut Design Space I resized everything so that my largest cards would fit. For this album it is 6.8 inches tall by 10 inches wide. To get the correct proportions select all then use the arrow corner to enlarge everything.



Once I had everything cut I added my decorative panels. I also decorated the fronts of my albums with the papers and embellishments from Echo Park's A Perfect Christmas collection.


Then glued my Christmas cards to the pages.


I placed the binding cover and tied them with tulle.



Now every Christmas I can pull them out and look back to see how family and friends have changed over the year as the new cards come in.

Thanks for stopping by!
