My First Silhouette Card!

Yes, you read correctly...I got a silhouette cameo (early Christmas present)! I am super excited to get to learn all the cool things about this little machine! I still kept my Cricut and all the carts because I can make my word books with the Cricut.

This card, I made for my husband! He has been off on vacation since 7/30. He goes back on 8/13. I wanted him to know how much I love him and think he is well.....awesome!

The silhouette cut out the words beautifully and effortlessly. I picked a lighter purple with the darker purple in the back so I could write a sentiment inside. I added some glitter to the star.

Until next craft!

Happy Birthday, Christie!

I found a wonderful tutorial on how to make a "Triple Stamping" card from Dawn O. You can find the tutorial here. Dawn's easy to follow instructions makes this card extra fun to make! I used a flourish stamp that I had and finished off the card with stickles (diamond).

Piper Word Book

I have been MIA for the last couple of days because I had the chance to make another word book. I love making them. They are a lot of work but a lot of fun to do. This book is my favorite one that I have created.

My client's daughter is name PIPER. She wanted to have a book showcasing Piper's first year of life. I had a lot of photos to work with so that made my job easy.

I used the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl Stack. I also used Cordinations Paper. I added some ribbon from Walmart. I added stickers and embellies to complete this sweet book! Here are some pictures.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my project!

Until next craft!

Happy Birthday Jayden Card

One of my youngest son's friends, Jayden is turning 5 years old on the 30th of this month. I decided that I wanted to try out my BIC/Sharpie markers (the poorman's Copic) to color in the stamped image on the card. I think I will need to get the fine tip version as well but I like the look of the card. Jayden likes purple and pink and butterflies.

This is a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card. I made the sentiment on the computer and glue it down to look like a banner. I finished off with a pink bow.

Until next craft!

You are loved card

I want to make something everyday, which is fun but I find myself overthinking (can you smell the smoke)...Anyhoo....onto today's card.....

This is a standard A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5). I used cordinations paper. I also used the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (say that 5 times fast). I used a scallopped border punch and inked the edges with TH distress inks. I completed the card with a knot and some pearls.

Until next craft!
