You're My Cuppa Card for Operation Write Home and Video Tutorial

I've been so focused on my Project Life that I've fallen behind on my card making for Operation Write Home.  I don't know why I can't multitask.  LOL 

I made the original card at least a month ago and cut out pieces to make more of the same card, but between work, vacation and PL, I hadn't gotten around to making the others.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the coffee cup.  I also used the Cameo with the pen to create my sentiment.  I came up with this one; although I feel quite sure it is not original.  I always run my puns by my husband to make sure they make sense to someone other than me.  :-)  I also used a Hero Arts stamp, Tim Holtz Distress Ink and my sewing machine.

Here are a few pictures of the different variations of the card.  And below is a video showing you how I made it.

I really enjoy sewing on my cards and my Project Life albums.  I think I'm going to start sewing my big 12 x 12 pages, too.  :-)

I made these cards for Operation Write Home.  This organization sends hand made cards to the men and women serving our country who are away from home.  This gives them a way to communicate with those loved ones who are waiting for them to come home.  If you have any extra cards you want to donate or if you just want to jot a note to let one of our heroes know you appreciate their sacrifice, go to the website for information on how to get that to our Heroes.

Have a great day and be inspired.

  1. Hi April! I have been playing mad catch up with PL too. This weekend I printed a bunch of photos and will sit tonight and stick them in the album. I made a goal to complete this years album by the end of the year so I can start off fresh next year. I do agree it can take over sometime but remember it is an amazing project you will have to look at and share with friends and family.

    I love your cards. They are so stinkin' cute. I just bought a stamp of a that shape of cup by Flourishes. But I would love that shape for my Silhouette. Did you make it or buy it? I have never used the sketch pens yet. But plan to learn.

    I am looking to do some cards for charity this year. Perhaps I can add this one to my list. I hope you are having a great day my friend!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by. :-) I agree with you on the Project Life - I look at it as a great opportunity to keep a diary of my family. I don't think I will be able to catch up what I've missed by the end of the year - I am going to try though.

    The cup is from the Silhouette store. It is called coffee cup to go. Design ID #37942 The sketch pens are great. You just replace the blade with the pen and go. Just remember to remove the letters when you go to cut out the image. Let's just say I speak from experience. LOL

    OWH is a great charity. I'm better about sharing my cards with OWH than I am my own friends and family. ;-)

    Have a great day. :-) I look forward to your next card and layout.
