Oh, counting down to my vacation!!!

I've got 6 more days until our family leaves on VACATION!
Yay!!! I'm so excited!!!!!
It's been getting harder and harder to sit and craft right now, with my travel bug just making my body restless!

Anyway, got my Letterpress set out again, and made two cards - one for my great aunt which I'll be staying with for a few days during our vacation, and one for my sister-in-law's birthday (I really hope that she doesn't see this card yet!).

I just LOVE the simple look that the Letterpress creates!
and still so elegant!

For the thank you card, I used the Wedding printing plates with teal and dark brown ink, and for the birthday card, I used the Baby printing plate for the background, and used hat (Birthday Elements) and the frame (Robin's Return) from SVGCuts files.

And I just can't wait until you see the new SVGCuts collection - it is just sooo adorable! One of my favorite that Mary has ever made!  Guaranteed that it's going to be a popular collection! Stay tuned!

I've been also trying to learn how to take photos and I'm having so much fun with it!  It's my dream to be able to capture my kids expressions and create the "mood" from photography.  It's amazing though - with a good camera and excellent lens, I found that I'm now more interested in wanting to learn how photography works!  This is a simple shot of some dried florals that was sitting in my vase, but look how nice and clear it is with my new camera!

Anyway, I'm off to try to finish my next SVGCuts DT project before I leave!
Ciao for now!


  1. Just make sure you have my numbers before you leave! I can hardly believe it...

  2. Oooh, love the first card! Pretty colors! Don't start making me think I need one of those letterpress kits! LOL!

    Looks like you're getting the hang of your camera! Right on!

  3. These letterpress cards are gorgeous. Clean, simple, bold - just lovely!
    Have an awesome vacation :-)
