This summer has been so much fun. Even muddling through some of the most difficult reading (research for a writing project) I’ve ever encountered hasn’t been that bad thanks to regular cuddle breaks from Lucy. I keep telling my husband what a “DAWG” she is, meaning she gets into just about everything. While on our walks, she shoves her head into every shrub we pass – hunting for lizards has developed into an obsession :-/. And in my garden, well… we won’t get into that. Suffice it to say I’ve just accepted that due to the daily trampling, a handful of plants just aren’t going to make it. Despite some frenzied behaviors, I’m completely smitten – this city dog derives so much joy from the outdoors. It makes me feel good watching her have such a good time.
Did you catch my first framed collage on the Sizzix Blog? Well I just finished the second of three, a celebration of LUCY (!!!) and it couldn’t have been easier.
In addition to the Photo Frame die-cuts from my first project, I used this Heartfelt Bigz Die with more of the same paper scraps to die-cut a bunch of hearts in different shapes and sizes. Sandwich a piece of cardstock or two or three along with your Bigz die between a pair of cutting pads and you’re set. A few passes through my Sizzix Big Shot and I had all the die-cuts I would need for this project.
