Birthday Banner

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  I am so excited to show you the project I created with Lisa's cute files!!

My daughter turned 10 last week, and we had her part over the weekend.  I made a banner for her party.  Here it is:


I have made her a banner many times and I think this is one of the cutest ones yet!!


The cutie puppy is from the Birthday Critters Cutting Files.  Isn't it adorable?



The gift and party hat are from the Party Items Cutting Files.  They are the perfect cut for my banner!


The cut for the Banner pieces itself is from Card Bases 3.  They were perfect, I just left them the size they were and cut them on the perforation.  The layer for the patterned paper is already created as part of the cut file!  Easiest banner I have ever made!

Bathroom Closet Makeover with my Silhouette - PDE Linky Party

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create any crafty project.  I love me some creative freedom...   Here is what I created.

I am trying to get our home a little more organized this year.  I decided to start with the bathroom closet/ medicine cabinet.  Here is my before picture - no judging!!


So - sheer and utter chaos, right??  I found these little drawers at Walmart, and wanted to label them to try to help keep things neat.  Enter my Silhouette and some vinyl!



Easy peasy!!  These took me about 20 minutes to make.  The clean up took WAY longer than that!  Here is the finished product.  Not perfect, but some much better!!


I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Follow Your Rainbow

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  I am so excited to show you the project I created with one of Lisa's cute files!!

Lisa released THIS cute rainbow a few weeks ago.  I just loved it!  I decided to make a shape card with it:


First I created a shadow of the rainbow, then made a rectangle and welded the two together.  I decided to cut the rainbow in pretty traditional rainbow colours.  I think it's SO cute!!

I decided to emboss the background with my cloud embossing folder.  It adds a pretty dimension.  I tied it all together with this cute sentiment from CTV Stamps "This 'n' That" stamp set.  It was perfect for the card!

Name Buttons - PDE Linky Party

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create any crafty project.  I love me some creative freedom...   Here is what I created.



A while back, I helped put together a fundraiser for a camp my children attend, and my husband I volunteer for.  The organizer, asked me to make some name buttons for other volunteers.  I found some blanks pins made by "Creatology", but had no idea how to create the rest of the button.  

Then it occurred to me - Print and Cut with my Cameo!!  I had never done it before, so enter YouTube!  I found a video tutorial and voila!  Beautiful, easy name pins.

I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Let it Snow

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  I am so excited to show you the project I created with Lisa's cute files!!


I love this cutie little snowman, and I decided to put her on a shape card.  She cut like a dream and layered perfectly, which is my favorite thing about PPPR files - well that, and they are SO cute!!!  The sentiment is from CDDs "Snowman Kisses".


This is the snowman (or snowgirl) file I used.  You can grab it HERE.  The card was made in my Silhouette Design Studio.  I used the tag from the Safari Love file, that you can find HERE.  I manipulated it a bit, and duplicated it then welded them together, and VOILA!  A shape card!

The card base is a PPPR file - A2 Card Base 3.  I have used it a bit lately, and plan to use it more - I am loving it!  You can pick up your own HERE




The cutie flower is one I LOVE!!  He looks SO cheerful.  He is from the "Flower Faces" cutting file.
