A shopping birthday present


I made a birthday present for my sister-in-law who loves to shop.  I wrote a poem and then put it on a 12 x 12" cardstock.

Here are a couple of pictures.  They are not very good because I still haven't found my camera and had to use my cell phone.

The 12 x 12 cardstock and the cardstock that has "tours" on it came from the same place but I don't have the cover so I can't say who made it.  The black and white is velvet - I just love velvet!

The poem is a little more detail.  I used a thin font from Lettering Delights called "Sparkle."  I imported it into my Make-The-Cut software.  You can only use it in the MTC software because it is an opf format.  I really have no clue as to what that means.

Once I put it on the virtual cutting mat as I liked it I then exported it as an svg file.  Once it was an svg file I imported it into my Pazzle's Inspiration Pro Software.

I ended up using an inexpensive pen to write the poem.  I tried several pens and they would dry out before it was finished.  I used a white cardstock purchased at Walmart to print the poem.

The cut out of the shopper I found in the Library of the Pazzle's Craftroom.

The flowers and gems are from my stash.

Here is the poem I wrote for her:

Shopping is my passion
A passion for fashion

The clothes, the jewelry,
The shoes, the stores.
Oh what a chore.

They call my name...
Apple, Brighton, The Body Shop,
Barnes and Noble, Victoria's Secret,
Macy's and many more
Are in store.

I'll try to set my limit
But that I can edit.

I'll shop in New York
Baltimore, actually anywhere
The jobs he took
Always gave me the look.

Oh and the jobs he takes
My shopping will they make.

Yes, shopping is my passion
A passion for fashion.

Her husband works away from home and she and the kids will fly out to visit him.  Most of his jobs are in the east hence Baltimore and New York.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy days to take a look at this birthday present!

And if you have time I would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful weekend.
