Update Tuesday August 20, 2019-See A Silhouette Suite


This Week's Update Tuesday is a little more than I can handle today...I am currently sitting in the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City waiting for the first of three flights today.   My husband and I are heading home after attending our Niece's wedding on Saturday.  We decided to stay an extra couple of days to explore the city.  Even though we both grew up in Michigan, neither of us had ever visited Traverse City.  If you ever have a chance to come here, I would recommend it.  

There are three projects in this week's update but I am only going to highlight one of them.  It's 5:30 am and I am not a morning person.  This hot tea I just bought better bring the caffeine! Lol.  The project I chose to highlight is the "Life was meant for adventure" card in the center.  I love the use of the adventure die from the Sweet Silhouette Dies.  Using the "negative" where it is die cut from the front of the card is brilliant.   Doing this leaves you with an "adventure" die cut to use for another card, perfect, right?!

And the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper...what is there to say except--AMAZING!  It looks as though it has been sprinkled with Pigment Sprinkles/watercolored.  It is absolutely vibrantly stunning in person.  Perfect for this card and any others you can dream up.  I can tell you right now that this is now on my list of items to purchase.
