Happy Memorial Day! Boy it has been awhile since I have blogged but now that things in my life are calming down I have more time to get back to what I L❤VE...Crafting! YAY! That makes me so happy..you just don't know!
Today I have a fun tutorial for you all. Embossing on clear acetate or plastic, like the Cricut cartridge clamshells...Don't throw any of your clamshells, embossing folder packaging or any packaging that has clear plastic away. The reason why you would want to keep any and all that you can get your hands on is because you can cut out pieces of the acetate and run it through your Cuttlebug or any embossing machine. Say what??!! I know I was so excited about this technique and was really excited because I have TONS of those packages and I save them them all.
One tip that I suggest is if you start collecting all this clear plastic packaging instead of keeping all that bulk just cut out any pieces of the plastic that you can use and throw the rest away. It is much easier and neater to store the cut sheets of plastic then to keep all that bulky packaging!! Plus, when you want to emboss something really quick your sheets are all cut and ready to go!! Easy Peasy!
Take a peek at my YouTube video here at http://youtu.be/nKl7sgTVrSI and you will see just how fast, easy and fun this is. The possibilities are limitless and it makes such an impressive look to your card, scrapbook page or craft! Once you try it you will be hooked!
I already have a few other tutorials all ready to post and I can't wait to show you all the fun and creative things you can do with the supplies you most likely already have in your stash!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day and I will see you all very soon!!

Ok, so this month I got a lip product from the company "be a bombshell" and the color is called "hot damn".

The pink satin ribbon in front is made it so that it can be removed. Basically it is held on the baby headband/waist band by another piece of ribbon tied onto the waist.
This is a side view of the entire outfit. My daughter had bought the Birthday Girl top and amazingly I did not see this top until after I completed this tutu. We got lucky as it matched absolutely perfectly. I had bought a shirt and matching lace leggings that matches this tutu but once I saw her Birthday Girl shirt and how perfectly it matched it was almost like it was meant to be. What is also so amazing is that Lindsay, my daughter, had absolutely NO idea that I was even making this tutu for Kenzie. It was a surprise for both of them. Lindsay found a few birthday tutus for Kenzie online but they were so expensive, ridiculously expensive actually and so the second I knew how bummed my daughter was because she wanted Kenzie to wear a tutu on her first birthday party but didnt want to spend that amount of money for an outfit that Kenzie would wear one time I knew I was gonna make one. That is when I knew that I had to make one for her and I did. When I finally shared the news and showed Lindsay the finished tutu she was completely shocked and SO excited. She even took it to work with her and showed every one including her customers. That warmed my heart like you could not believe. Making someone you love so happy like that is the best feeling in the entire world.
Just a few close up pics of the front of the tutu. As you can see I used two different pink tulles in different color tones, white tulle with glitter, silver tulle with glitter and a few different soft pink ribbons.
This is the bottom of the tutu. It is one of the fullest, fluffiest tutus I have ever seen. Is this not absolutely adorable? I was so happy that my daughter Lindsay loved it as much as she did. That alone made it staying up all night and all the time it took to complete it absolutely worth it. Lindsay plans on framing it and hanging this in Kenzies bedroom because she loves it that much. That makes this mama so happy!
And finally the back of the tutu with a close up of the waist band and you are able to see the how the pink satin bow is tied on if you look closely. My granddaughter Kenzies birthday party is not until this Saturday so once she wears this we will be taking a lot of photos of her and I will be sure to share pictures of how adorable she looks. Thank you all so much for stopping by and taking a peek at this super sweet tutu that I made for my beautiful grandbaby. Be on the look out for a detailed how to video coming soon. If I can create this tutu then anyone can. As always Big Cricut Hugs! ~Terri
