Door Hangers

Well I was in another swap over on SOC for door hangers and the lovely lady that I was swapping  with had two daughters she told me to pick one of them to make a door hanger for....but me growing up in a house having a sister I just could not do it! I had to make one for each one of really not that hard making them and one of them loves basketball and the other likes fairies...So here is what I came up with! Happy Crafting Everyone!

This charm is for my brave sister-in-law who is in remission right now from Breast Cancer....  If you have any questions please feel free to  e-mail me!

Used for the tag then used a Spellbinder die cut to get the scallop edge

Most of the charms I used came from e-bay..the large metal ribbon is a Michaels find and the smaller metal ribbons are from Hobby Lobby

Used a Cuttle bug folder to emboss the large pink ribbon that I cut with my e-Craft die cut machine!

e-Craft Cutting Machine My New Toy!

I have a new addition to my die cut machines......It's the e-Craft by Craftwell.......there is a bit of a learning curve which I plan on mastering here soon...but the two biggest things that I really like are that it does not require a sticky mat to cut do need something that would stabilize thin sheets of cards stock ....but guess what? After a little bit of research ....the item that I am using can be brought from the dollar store how neat is that.....  and Craftwell allows you to import files like SVG and while I do not know how to convert the other types of files yet it will let you convert other files to cut! They have also partnered up with Make the Cut...and how awesome is that!!!! I have been playing with my e-craft machine since this afternoon and I  and see that I will have endless possibilities on creating all kind of neat crafty project.... Don't get me wrong I still love my Cricut.....but it just great being able to have other options when looking for shapes or Font to cut! Here are few pictures....As always Happy Crafting
