Silhouettes - Emily & Jessica

Well, I hang out at 4 Scrappy Sisters all the time. Andrea posted a couple of layouts that just WOWED me! I normally do not scraplift, but this time, I couldn't resist! I am totally in love with these layouts, and I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out!


Aren't these fantastic? I remember that my mom had silhouettes of us (my sister, my brother, and I) hanging in our family room when we were growing up. I love this!



I used Love, Elsie papers, and I did some detail cutting. The black mats were cut on my Expression. I added a quote to each page, and the titles are vinyl thickers. I also added some Primas and rhinestone brads. I JUST LOVE THESE!

To get the silhouette, I had the girls stand against a white door, and I took a photo of their profile. I uploaded them to my computer, inserted them into a Word document, printed them in grayscale, and then adhered them with removable adhesive to black cardstock. I then just hand cut the profiles, and then removed the photos and the adhesive. It was so EASY!

I LOVE THESE! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Carol,

I just wanted to thank you for your recent message on my "bee" card! I have never considered trying out for any DT and no one has ever encouraged me to do so. Do you really think I would have a chance? I value your opinion and I sure appreciate the encouragement.

Love ya, Glee

I love the silhouette idea, I may have to do this.. :)

Well the new car is a Chrysler Aspen, I guess I forgot to mention that.. haha
I also saw the Halloween stuff out. What the heck??? geesh, they don't even let us get through one thing without anticipating the next three things. What a shame! I went to Target too and wasn't happy with the selection, they said all the new school clothes come out next week! ugh...
