Rectangular frame with Calligraphic Leaf /Veni Vidi Amavi

Hi Y'all!
Robyn here 
with something old and  something new.

On the Mat

This digital file, around for awhile is a favorite!
It is downsized to ATC format and point edited to separate the flourished leaf element.
The fame can be sized or created from a rectangle and offset.
The elements are triple embossed with superfine copper embossing powder
and adhered to a water color cloud background.

From the fabulous new Quietfire Design Stamps release.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you love these Quietfire Design stamps and files as much as I do!
Some backstory and outtakes and desks around the world

Chalkline Font - Coffee & Chocolate Chip - Life Doesn't Have To Be...

Yogi here today and I've been itching to do a coffee card...

I'm using one of Suzanne's fonts that work great in emails, Word, Excel etc., it's an OTF font extension and available from Suznne at Quietfire Design. I used it in my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software and printed out the background and other text. Love that font, it's so funky...

I'm using one of the NEWEST quote stamps from Quietfire Design "Life Doesn't Have To Be Perfect...");

Also using a couple electronic cut files from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase.

Opened my projects in my SCAL software, removing portions not needed... Cut everything from white cardstock. Colored with Distress dabber "Walnut Stain" for the main coffee cup. Ran the cup holder piece through my machine with the Elizabeth Craft Designs "Coffee Bean" embossing folder. Sponged all over with the antique linen and hit the high points direct to paper with the walnut stain. Adhered to cup. The steam was inked with Picket Fence pad and embossed with Emerald Creek "Soft Fallen Snow" (love the texture...)

On page 2 of my SCAL software, I created my background using the Chalkline font and a bunch of coffee related words in various sizes. Resized the lot to fit my card base. Printed out on white cardstock. Colored the letters with Prisma colored pencils in various brown shades, then went over the whole page with a Distress "Antique Linen" pad (PS mine is a bit dry, I'm lazy and don't fill them very often... But I get nice tonal values this way BIG GRIN)
Scored and folded my dark brown textured cardstock (DCWV pad) to create the easel. Adhered another piece same size as card. Then adhered my text background and the coffee cup. Added the "Friends Cafe" on the cup.

On the floor: Colored the chocolate chip with Prisma colored pencils in various shades of brown. Scored it about mid way and adhered the bottom section to the floor to act as my stopper.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" die set. Sponged around the edges with a dirty brown sponge and then with the antique linen all over. Removed from die and adhered to floor.

Trimmed down and adhered the sentiment.

Remember to Breathe Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook page featuring the 'Remember to Breathe' digital cut file and the Quietfire Design stamp 'There are two things we can leave our children'.  Perfect for those moments that take your breath away, like when your baby turns 16 and gets his driver's licence.  What a life changer.  I've gone from being the essential taxi driver to being pretty much redundant. 

I will adjust.  But it was a memory that needed to be scrapbooked and it came together very quickly after I cut the title out of blue cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.  I placed the title in the centre of the page and accented with a few gears and the beautiful Quietfire quote stamp.  So appropriate for the occasion and for parenting in general.  Thanks for stopping by, Connie

Happy Birthday Balloon Card in a Box

Hi Y'all!
Robyn here!
The birthday card we've all been waiting for.
Looks like it takes a lot longer than it does to create, can be modified for all ages and genders,
folds flat for mailing
and is tons of fun to make!
