You are my Sunshine…

You are my Sunshine…I remember this song sung to me and several other little ones

throughout the years.  I’ve sung it myself to all my kids and grandsons.

Did you know you can change the word “sunshine” to almost anything.

My youngest son’s favorite version was you are my airplane?   (try it)

This layout features my youngest “bubble-making” grandson Emerson.

I created the You are my Sunshine Scrapbook Layout using the Hello Sunshine Stamp and Die Set from The Makers Movement.  This set is perfect for Card Makers and Scrapbookers.

  • To mimic the puffy clouds and the scalloped frames.  I created a scallop border for my striped layer using the scallop edge cut from the bottom of the largest Nested Square Tags.  If you place them strategically, you won’t see any seams.
  • Adhere the scallops to the back side of the striped paper.

The Sunshine Die Cut makes the perfect embellishment for my page.

  • I used my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine and adhesive Craft Vinyl to create the words “You are my, and the name Emerson.
  • For the bubbles, I cut several sizes of small circles using Transparent Glitter Vinyl and the Silhouette.

Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System

Recently, I was asked by The Maker’s Movement to try out the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System* to see how I liked it.  (Always anxious to try something new, I quickly agreed.)

*Disclosure… “This is a sponsored post.  I have been provided product in exchange for my creative ideas.  The views and opinions are my own.”

The machine is compact and portable.  Easy to store and carry.

You can use the Crossover II* with thin metal paper dies, fabric dies and steel rule dies.

The Crossover II Fabric and Paper Cutting System*is similar to other manual cutting systems and uses a “sandwich” configuration with three plates.  (included with the machine)

  • White Base Plate
  • Metal Adapter Plate
  • Clear Top Plate

This is my favorite part of the machine, the adjustable rollers and pressure settings. 

This was the real game changer for me.

It adjusts for multiple layers and allows you to be able to cut a variety of thicknesses.

Not just for paper…

the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System* can cut fabric, faux leather, craft foam,

chipboard, felt and several other materials.

Here’s a quick little video showing the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System*in action.

Along with the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System* I received a few dies from

Maker’s Movement to play with as well.

I created this quick card using paper scraps from Graphic 45 and a combination of the dies

I received from The Maker’s Movement.   I love the tiny foliage stamp I used on the background.

It’s from the Hello Spring Collection.

I liked using the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System*especially it’s versatility.

A good little machine to have on hand.
