Too early??

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Is it too early for holiday projects? I just did a review over on Craft Gossip for the Silhouette Printable Canvas and thought it would be perfect for a tree ornament. I printed a digital stamp onto the canvas, coloring it with markers and adding some white puffy paint to his hat. I die cut the canvas twice with a label shape, since the canvas is sticky I was able to sandwich the pieces together with some batting in the middle to make a cute puffy fabric ornament.

Super Dog! Able to leap fire hydrants in a single bound!

Hot Dog Card

This time for the Lawnscaping Challenge it’s coloring. I used the new “Critters at the Dog Park” Lawn Fawn stamp set and colored my dog and fire hydrant with Spectrum Noir markers. I also sponged the background with inks and sponge daubers. The die cut shape is from Lifestyle Crafts and the washi tape came from EK Success.


Fabric Fiesta

I just did a review over on Craft Gossip using the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing material which allows you to cut out fabric with a Silhouette die cutting machine. I was amazed at how clean it cut! For my project I cut out some banners, a bird and the word “happy” and ironed them onto some unbleached muslin, sewed on some buttons, added some ribbon knots and put it in a wooden embroidery hoop. I love my blue bird of happiness wall hanging, I think it’s adorable!

Chipboard Pins

I just did a review for Craft Gossip for Silhouette’s new chipboard. This thin chipboard cuts easily with the Silhouette die cut machine and I’m thinking of so many things I can make with it like banners, shrine boxes, little houses….

I’ve seen a lot of pretty jewelry pieces lately made with layered die cut wood and thought I could do the same using the chipboard. So I cut out my shapes along with pattern papers in the same shapes and sizes and layered them, using a glue stick to adhere them together. I used two layers of the chipboard for the bases just so they were nice and sturdy. I added a little ink to the edges for even more dimension and then glued on pin backs. I think these turned out really fun.

Cutting Up

Made some cute cards with my new Cricut Mini die cutting machine. I like this mini machine better than any of the other Cricuts I’ve tried. It hooks to your computer and it’s so much easier to see what you’re doing, change sizes and make adjustments on the computer screen.

I love this cool Bride of Frankenstein, she’s from the Movable Monsters collection.

This cute owl come from the Create a Critter cartridge, it has such adorable animals and accessories to go with them.

You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!

It’s a little late for holiday cards but I had to share this one. It’s the card I made for my husband this year, inspired by the “Major Award” in a Christmas Story. All the shapes were die cut with my Silhouette machine. On the outside of the envelope I stamped a wood background and the word “fragile”, must be French.

I am in love with my latest creation using my Silhouette machine! I used white heat flocking material, die cut everything and ironed it onto a long sleeve t-shirt. The font is Constantia and the wand image is from Silhouette. Isn’t it awesome!?

*BEEB BOOP BEEB* Here’s a cute Robot card I made with die cuts from my Silhouette. I made a hinge in his chest so it opens up with a stamped “I love you” inside. I added brads for his “bolts”. I love the notebook edge die, isn’t it cool? All die cuts are from Silhouette, pattern paper from My Minds Eye, the stamp sentiment is from The Stamps of Life.


Happy Father’s Day

Here are the cards I made for all the Dads in my life :)

This one is for my Dad and I also made a matching one for my Stepdad, they both love to golf. All the shapes are die cut from Silhouette.


This is for my Grandfather, the boat is a Silhouette shape and the compass stamp is from Judikins.


This last one is for my Father in Law, he loves nature and the outdoors. The trees are from Lawn Fawn and the fox is from Hero Arts. I love that fox, he’s so cute!


Silhouetting (is that a word?)

I’ve been using my Silhouette machine alot lately, I love mixing die cuts with stamps, it’s perfect if I need an image to complete a look I want but don’t have the right/perfect stamp and with the Silhouette I can make it any size I want. I love this machine.

Here’s a few cards I’ve made lately. The first card was for my besties b-day. It mixes a digital image of Marie Antoinette I colored with colored pencils from the Graphics Fairy site, (if you love free vintage images this is a must visit site, it’s awesome!  I linked this to their Brag Monday) along with alphabet stamps and a die cut cupcake from Lettering Delights. I love how it came together.


The next card I made just wanting to play with shapes, the deer is from Lettering Delights, the rest are from Silhouette.


This last card was made for my husbands aunt who works on a horse farm here in KY. One thing I like to do when planning out a card that is all die cuts is to pull all the images I’m planning on using up on the computer screen at once, that way it’s easy to size and lay everything out to make sure it fits and looks good, I got that helpful tip from Nicole Magourik.
