Rapunzel Cards

 Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair. How cute is she?! I cut her using my Cameo and a great cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables. She has all the princesses for only 50 cents! I cut her and put her together using my Xyron sticker maker and Creative Station. It is so much easier to put these cut outs together using the Xyron sticker makers.  I added Stickles to the center of the flowers. I added chalk on the cheeks. I got the cut file for the card itself from the Silhouette store. I love its shape.
The I love you most is from Jaded Blossom Simple Sayings 2. The happy birthday is from Stampin Up. I cut the little labels with my Spellbinders. I added metal embellishments using my Irock on the birthday label.

Flower Hop

Flowers are in bloom as the warm summer air dances lightly across the yards and fields and this blog hop is all about the flowers. Please join this creative bunch as they show off their creations with flowers. Jearise from Lorby's World is our hostess and make sure you begin at her site and read carefully because she will have a give away going on with this hop and all the details are on her blog. Now flower power away...
I made this for my cousin that just graduated HS. I used my favorite colors from DCWV paper. I Modge Podge the paper on then file the edges.
I added flowers and pearls. I tied a bow with sheer ribbon.
I also made a digital scrapbook page. I love these colors! I am not one that likes pages with only one picture because I think it is a wast of paper. But I had to try it with this great set. This is me and my hubby.
Thank you for stopping to smell the flowers and down the path to Maria.
