Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone! 
Over at Joy's Life DT Blog, we are creating what ever our little heart desires using Joy's Life stamps. I've been seeing a lot of CAS cards (clean and simple) and thought I'd experiment a little with that.
 The sentiment is from Joy's Everyday Occasions stamp set. I love this set because you can mix-and-match the stamps. It's full of possibilities ;) 

Have a fun, crafty day!

Krafty Girls

Hello, hello :) 
I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July weekend! 
Welcome to another Krafty Girls Challenge. This week's challenge is to create any paper craft and use a die cut. Easy peasy! :) 

I'm so behind on my Project Life album that I thought this would be a perfect way to work toward catching up! I created a "weekly card". I used a few die cuts here. I used the flag banner die cuts from My Creative Time. Also from My Creative Time, is the curly label die. 

The wood veneer is from Michaels and the thickers are from Marshalls ($1.49 or $1.99 - can't remember).

Please link up your crafty, die cut creations HERE :) 

Thank you for stopping by!

The twine is Chocolate Truffle from Trendy Twine. The crinkle ribbon is Antique White from the Pink & White Bundle from 3 Girl Jam.
 I used Amy Tangerine thickers to spell out "dad". 
The chocolate pattern paper is from Echo Park Paper.

Meow are you? ^_^

Hi everyone ♥

Today I'm sharing a slider card over at Joy's Life Design Team blog. I had always wanted to make one, but was a little confused on what to cut, sizes, etc... but the Silhouette Cameo made it soo easy!! I think I've said this before, but the hardest part was choosing the pattern paper LOL 

The sentiment is from Joy's brand new stamp set, Punny Animals. This entire stamp set is adorable. Take a look at the entire stamp set here

The following pictures will show the girl's progress on the "slider" cut. The card base and the slider piece are from the Silhouette Store. 

Here, she made it to the right side :-)   All of the pattern paper is from Echo Park Paper except the girl's dress and sentiment mat. I used My Mind's Eye pattern paper for her dress and the sentiment mat. 

I used foam tape to add all the dimension. 

This week the design team has been working on animal themed projects. Stop by the blog to for some inspiration and to say hi! :) 

Have a fun, crafty day!

Birthday Money Holder and Banner

Hello, hello ♥

Today I'm sharing a money holder I made with the Silhouette Cameo and a banner I made with the Cricut. I think the hardest part was deciding what paper to use LOL 

I didn't want to have too much going on so I kept it clean and simple. The sentiment is actually made up from two stamps. "feliz cumpleanos" is from My Creative Time's Wow So Many Candles stamp set and "Mama" is from Pink By Design's Mi Familia stamp set.  
The sentiment mat and it's layer are from My Creative Time's Stitched Curly Label Die and the Curly Label Die. 

The inside sentiment is from Pink By Design's Mi Familia stamp set. The sentiment mat and its layer is from My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label Dies
The pattern paper is from Echo Park. 
Just in case you're interested in this money holder cut, you can find it here

I still ♥ my Cricut & Gypsy. The reason I mention Gypsy is because I can set everything up in layers and different mats and be ready to whip up a banner in no time! The font and banner shape are from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge. The tulle is from Michael's. 

Thank you for stopping by! 
Have a fun, crafty day!

Happy blah blah birthday!

TGIF! :) 
I had fun making this card because it was the first time I cut something with the Silhouette Cameo that wasn't from the Silhouette Store.  Both Snoopy and Woodstock are images that I found on Google. For those who don't know, you just save the image, open it on the Silhouette Software, trace, and cut... it really is THAT easy! I couldn't believe it either! 

Oh! Almost forgot, the balloons are from George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge. Still ♥ my Cricut. 
The twine on the left and middle balloons is from The Twinery. The twine on the right balloon is from Trendy Twine. The bling is from Zva Creative

I added some blending chalk on Snoopy & Woodstock's cheeks. The sentiment was created on Microsoft Word and was just printed out. The yellow pattern mat paper is from DCWV Celebrations cartridge.

Thank you for stopping by!

Project Life card holder

Hello everyone! Over at Joy's Life Design Team blog we are showcasing Home Decor projects. I decided to make a magazine holder for my project life cards to not only decorate my scrap area, but to help me organize. I can't say this enough... the silhouette cameo is incredibly easy to use and Joy's Life stamps compliment most cuts!

The sentiment on this holder is from the Tag You're It One stamp set.

This sentiment is from the Tag You're It Two stamp set.

I'm not sure of the item number, but it's called 3x4 life card magazine holder from Lori Whitlock. 

All of the pattern paper is from Echo Park Paper.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a fun, crafty day!
