First off, I hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July! Ours was great. We were just going to have a BBQ with our little family at home until our Pastor called us over his house. It was soooo nice to get together with our church family for a wonderful time of food and fellowship. I will say, they put on a mean BBQ. Everything tasted great and the conversation was even better.
So sorry I haven’t been around for a few days but it was nice to take time to relax. My hubby even took a few off to recharge. So I finally got around to taking pictures of my new project. It is with the 3D Letters set from SVG Cuts. I wanted to make a wall hanging for the parents of little Lilah as they don’t have a lot of room right now.
The letters take a some practice to get the hang of. The H was especially heinous. But I think as I make more it will become easier. Now I have the general idea how the files work. It is one of those you have to make them to really understand, instructions are good but doing it is better.
Please excuse some of the mistakes. I know I didn’t put some of the letters together right and left some pieces off. But what they don’t know won’t kill them 😉
Even though I do see where I messed up, I think they came out nice for a first try. Definitely going to be making more for family and friends!
I tried to use what I already had on hand for embellishments except for the glitter butterflies. As soon as I saw them they went in my cart at Michaels. Too cute! Of course, I also got out my trusty Viva Decor Paper Pen in Opal. I really need to save up to buy all the different colors. They are some truly awesome pens for decor. I believe you can use them on fabric too. Multi-purpose! I think I am my own worst enabler!
Oops, I almost forgot, when you go to a BBQ, you can’t go empty handed. I whipped up this flag to take with me. It has three layers. Bottom is blue, middle white and the top is red. The mold had stars on it but I replaced them with blueberries. The white stripes are Cool Whip. It was piped on with a star tip but by the time I remembered to take a picture, it had melted and oozed. Who knew Cool Whip melted that fast LOL. Trust me, she looked better before the boy’s hot breath thawed it. I told them they had to wait as they panted on it.
Jell-O had a promotion at our local grocery store that if you bought three 6 oz. packs you got a free flag mold. Score! I am not a big fan of Jell-O but my boys are. Besides what party would be complete without it!
Well, hope you enjoy and if you have any questions about the letters or oozie Cool Whip, just hit the comments. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Have a blessed day!!
