Lil' Princess Tee Shirt by Jamie Gillahan

Software: Funtime Files Used: Butterfly with Flourishes   Princess Hand Mirror by Judy Stark
Materials: Heat Transfer Vinyl, Light Pink Rhinestones

I recently made a Service Flag tee shirt for my Mom and my daughter saw it.  That was the end of that, now she wanted me to make a shirt for her as well! 

For her, I decided to add a little more Princess to it.  It was something that I thought that she would appreciate A LOT more.  :o)  I started by finding the perfect sentiment worked in Funtime to get the layout just right.
I used the Funtime font, Impress BT Regular, for the majority of the sentiment.  "HERO" I used the true type font Army and for "Lil' Princess" I used the true type font CAC Champagne.
With Funtime, it made it so easy to add an outline to "Lil' Princess" so that I could incorporate my daughter's favorite colors.
I ironed on everything at once but the top layer of "Lil' Princess."  Once everything cooled a bit, I added the top layer of "Lil' Princess."  I love how easy it is to use more than one color of heat set vinyl and how well you can layer colors.  
With everything in place, I needed to add a little bling to the crown.  Using light pink rhinestones, I set them on the crown and using the already warm iron, I set them.

Overall I'm very happy with how this shirt turned out but I think that if I were to make another one I would use a lighter purple vinyl for the majority of the sentiment
Thanks for looking!!

Pumpkin Teapot Card and Tea Bag Gift Box- Jamie Gillahan

Software: Funtime Scrapbooking
Files Used: Pumpkin Teapot by Judy Stark  Presleys Curls by Judy Stark
Materials: Cardstock, pearl brads, ribbon

For the card I started by cutting out the layers and rounding out the edges in Funtime.  I didn't want to take away from the adorable teapot, so I kept it simple. I added some clear stickles to the eyes, nose, and mouth for a little more added dimension.

I added the sentiment "Take time for Tea" to Presleys Curls by Judy Stark  and used the print and cut feature to print the sentiment out with my printer. Then using stickles, I added some glitter to the curls. With a green ribbon, I threaded it through the top and bottom of the cut file to attach it to the card

The tea bag gift box took a little more time while working with Funtime.  I took the border of the teapot and copied it so that I had 2 (this will create the front and the back of the gift box.  With the welding tool in Funtime, I attached one of the teapots to each side of the bottom of the box I created and welded them all together.  I added some kiss cut lines to where I wanted the gift box to fold and voila!!  My gift box is completed and now all I had to do was decorate it.

After cutting out the teapot and the lid, I added a small piece of yellow paper behind the eyes, nose, and mouth.  Then I added some clear stickles to the eyes, nose, and mouth to give it some more dimension.  The green ribbon at the top holds the gift box together until you're ready for some tea!!

Thanks for looking!!

Quick and Easy Halloween Flowers

The Halloween flower is very easy to make using the thick Mulberry black paper. I cut the flowers   using the same settings as you would for light weight chipboard. Be sure to use a clean slightly sticky mat and just wash your mat in warm water after cutting.  The pumpkin and flourish added are plastic stickers I added to the flower. Add a bow and some glitter and your done!

                      Witch Marci Halloween Step Card

I love doing Halloween projects and cards, and using vibrant colors again. Let's not forget the glitter!!    With this card, I used one of my favorite stamps, "Witch Marci" by LaLa Land Stamps. I colored Marci with my Copics and then attached everything into place and glued.  The parking sign was a premade stick on I had already.  Enjoy!

Halloween Layout

The ghost, chair and tree plus many other Halloween files are available at

Trick or Treat Boxes
