Hey everyone! Hope everyone is having a good day! My little guy is sick, sick, sick! We have already been to the doctor and the pharmacy and now he is zonked out. So I am getting my work in in between hugs and crackers and sprite :) 


I wanted to show you the cutest thing ever! While we are at CHA, the crafters in the office were catching their breath from all of the tropical creations that they made! But they didn't rest too long before we needed more projects to show you :) When I saw this, I gasped! It was created with our new material stack, "Silky Smooth-Brights". I wish you could feel this stuff! It seriously is as smooth as butter...PLEASE go to Michaels and just touch this stuff lol!


Isn't this darling for a little boys birthday party? 


You can almost see the smooth texture of this paper...



These clouds and airplanes were cut out by hand....need a template??


Here it is! If I were smart enough to know how to make SVG files, I would do that cause these would make super cute ones :)

Ok, gonna go back to babying my baby :) Have a wonderful day! I will be back TOMORROW with a video I have been waiting a whole year to show you! It's worth the wait :)

  13. Love this project! When I first felt the smooth texture I thought I was touching the highest thread count sheets! Very luxurious!

    Question: I see that it was printed on? What kind of printer did they use? Would a standard (photosmart, inkjet) home printer work?

  83. The pilot in me likes the plane banner. Not just for boys. See I can fly a single engine plane but cannot ride a bicycle unless it is a tandem bike that hubby & I have.
