I have two projects to share for the hop today, a card and a magnet.  For both of projects, I used the new Polaroid dies.   My card uses the polaroid frame die.  First I inked the clouds directly onto the card front.  Then I die cut the sunburst (Power Rays Die) from vellum.  I inked the vellum a bit with yellow into look like sun rays.  I love how the inked vellum looks over the cloud background!

The sentiment is a die cut from Quote Tags.  That font is so pretty:)  I resisted the urge to add dots or sequins, and I'm happy I did:)  CAS just makes me happy!

My second project is a magnet using the camera die from the Polaroid set.  This die is so intricate!  I couldn't resist putting together a full-color version of the die cut.  It was just a matter of cutting different colors and assembling.  Just like the real thing, this die cut has a slit at the bottom where the picture is supposed to pop out of the camera.  So instead of using my die cuts on a card, I decided to make a magnet picture frame.  The slit of the die is just the right size to fit a standard wallet size school photo.  I'm sure my son will be thrilled his mom put up his school picture, heehee!  The best thing is that the picture is totally removable and you can change it up every year.

Thanks for stopping in today for my first blog hop with Paper Smooches!  A big Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in states:)  

Mahalo and Aloha,
