Fairy Day Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to my part of the Fairy Day Blog Hop for Day 2.  You should have started at Creations By Gill M and come here from there!

I made two similar projects for today.

For both of my projects I used SVG Cuts Spring Birdhouse set with the gourd birdhouse.The paper on the first one is K & Company's Que Sera Sera.  The fairy is cut from a page out of the Once Upon A Time stack.

This second fairy house is my favorite by far.  The cute little fairy is actually a photo of my now 13-year-old daughter when she was 3!  I had to scan it in because I couldn't find the disc (imagine not being able to fine a disc after 10 years and a move!), so I lost some of the picture quality.  The "for lease" sign is from the same photo.  I did put a little "pixie dust" in the form of some Martha Stewart Sugar Cube iridescent glitter on her wings.  The butterfly is from The Graphics Fairy.  I printed it out twice and glittered the top layer with Martha's Orange Sorbet irides…

Fairy Day Blog Hop Day 1

Happy Fairy Day and welcome to my part of the Fairy Day blog hop.  The hop starts at Creations by Gill M.  If you didn't start there, please go back and do so.  You should have hopped here from Leslie Rahye

This is a hop with a difference as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters but if you gather all the letters then at the end of the hop on day 2 assemble them to create a fairy related word. If you then return to Creations by Gill M and enter the Mr Linky at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop she will contact someone at random and ask them to email her with the word - if correct they win some lovely candy.

Now, for my Day 1 project.  For those of you that participated in the Vacation Blog Hop, you'll recognize the flowers I made for this project.

They're made of crepe paper!  This time I used white, canary yellow, and light pink.  Once the white ones were rolled up I spritzed them …

Officially Summer Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of The Scrapoholic's Officially Summer Blog Hop.  You should have come to my blog from Sarah.  Hope everyone had a great first day of summer yesterday.  We got a little relief from the relentless heat we've been having here in Oklahoma, thank goodness! 

I love reading the comments you all are posting.  I'm always flattered when someone wants to "scraplift" an idea from me.  Please feel free to do so anytime.  If you're a Facebook junkie like me, "like" SVG Cuts page and check out the great projects posted from their cut files.  They are absolutely incredible.  The pieces on the dimensional projects go together so easily.

I had computer issues yesterday and had to take the one I usually work on to get fixed.  My project for today is a quickie. 

A pinwheel for the Fourth of July.  Once again, the cut file came from  This one is actually a freebie from the blog there.  I just love the instructional videos they make.  I&#…

Officially Summer

Happy first day of Summer!  Thanks for stopping by to see my first creation for the The Scrapoholic's Officially Summer blog hop. You should have come here from Sarah.

I had so much fun creating this Surf Shack.  I've been thinking about it for almost a month now and finally did it.  It took me a couple of days to get it finished.  About halfway through, my thirteen-year-old daughter told me it was "too symmetrical".  I tried to make it a little more off kilter just for her! 

The file is from SVG Cuts and is the Peony Cottage.  I also used Beach Bum I and Beach Bum II to complete the Surf Shack look. The only cut I really altered is the front door.  It is the bottom piece of the surfboard from Beach Bum II.  I made it shorter and wider than a regular surfboard.  I used just plain cardstock for all of the cuts.

The roof is paper raffia found in the gift wrap aisle at Michael's.  I did try to rough it up a bit to give it more of a weathered look.  The paper for th…
