NSD 2015 Freebie | Silhouette Sunday

Hey Guys!

As many of you know, National Scrapbook Day was this weekend! To celebrate, I’m offering a free cut file for Silhouette Sunday! I usually make things geared towards card makers but I figured it was time to give my scrapbookers a little love. Plus, I was super sick this weekend so the chances of me getting a project made, filmed and edited was slim to none. The file is a print and cut file of die cut titles. If you have a laser printer, you can use your Minc or high heat laminator to foil it for a fancy touch! 😀

Yes? I posted it as my card for the recent MFT sketch challenge and said there might be a free cut file in the future.  Well, here is that cut file! Be sure to complete the checkout process to download the file. You can fill in the required fields with dummy data “Jane Doe, 123 Main St, etc…”.

Please excuse my extra nasal voice in the video. I’m fighting off a lingering head cold. 🙁

Happy Crafting!


Happy Mother’s Day | Sketch Challenge

Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and that means it’s time to start making some cards! For my first Mother’s Day card, I created a “card kit” that I can cut with my Silhouette. The inspiration for the cut file came from a sketch from MFT and a stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called “My Mother”. (The “My Mother” set was discontinued. You’ll have to search for it for it if you really want it. 🙂 )

Instead of circles, I used a wavy line and a simple, matted square instead of the two-piece rectangle for the main image. Here is the sketch from MFT:

I had the sketch in my head when I started drawing but after you start doodling something, your mind goes other places.  Those other places landed me here…

I’ll have the cut file, supply list and process video uploaded for you soon! There might even be a free code coming up for Silhouette Sunday! 😎

Silhouette Sunday Giveaway!

Hey Guys!

So… If you came here from my youtube channel, you know there is no Silhouette Sunday video for this week. I’ve been super busy with family in town and no time to film AND edit a video. I thought about just posting that I’d see you all next week but that’s no fun. Instead, I thought I would do a little giveaway! 🙂

I have some plans for the Silhouette Adhesive Kit and thought some of you may want your own kit so you can play along too!

Happy New Year!

Hey Guys!

It’s a new year and everyone is full of resolutions! Some of the most common goals going around our family are to “get organized” and workout “more”…. you know, the usual stuff. My goal this year is to craft more!

One of the things I am notorious for is creating sketches and never using them. When ever I’m bored at work or lunch I grab my iPad and create random card sketches. The problem… those sketches almost never get used or even see the light of day after I finish them. My goal for this year is to start using some of those sketches!

Here is the sketch I plan on working from in January.

I hope you all join me on my “create more” goal for 2015 and share your creations! To sweeten the deal, one luck winner (chosen at random) will win a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp!

Here is my first card with the sketch…

Stained Window Card

Hello, Hello!

Look, I’m on a blog posting roll! 🙂 Today, I have another card and video for you! I’m in full holiday card making mode and have a new-found appreciation for religious stamp sets. The pendulum always swings back and forth for me in terms of style but this year I am totally loving all the Christ based stamps I’m seeing from different companies. Now don’t get me wrong, I love snowmen, Christmas trees and penguins as much as the next girl… but there are a few people in my life that would prefer a more traditional card and sentiment for the holidays. This quick little card is just for them!

I used the new photopolymer stamp from Stampin’ Up! called “Gentle Peace” along with twinkling H2O’s for the watercoloring. I thought the sparkling finish you get from the H2o’s was perfect for the stained glass look. The background is a quick cut file I made that you can find here.

I’m sad to say photos seem to never do Twinkling H2o’s justice! The amount of shimmer they produce is crazy! I tried to capture it in a close up photo with no luck. =(

Anyways, thanks for stopping by!

Star Shaker Card

I know, I know… where have I been? No excuse this time…
I, like always, have been a total blog slacker. The only reason I stumbled on over today is to link a card cut file for a video! 🙂 But anyways…

I have always loved the holiday season. Chilly weather, pumpkin spice lattes and shopping! All my favorite things rolled up into one season. I guess that’s one reason I love me some holiday stamps. I have especially been in love with the “Endless Wishes” set from Stampin’ Up! I think what really drew me to purchasing this stamp set was its versatility. It has a ton of sentiments for Christmas and Holiday cards. Here is one of the many projects I have made recently from it.

Messy Scallop Card

Hi Guys!

I’m here with a new crop of cards to share with you AND a free cut file! Can you believe it? I’m keeping good on my vow to update my blog more than twice a year… (for now ;)).

I’ve been in love with a stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Sweetie Pie and Sweetie Pie Frames. Sadly, the Sweetie Pie Faces set is sold out but the Frames are still available (linked below). I used those stamps and the Messy Scallop Frame cut file to create several cards….

Water coloring is a big trend right now. I used my dye ink pads and an aqua painter to color the frame and hearts.

This card is very similar but I used patterned paper for the frame and ribbon instead of twine.

This last card uses both stamps together. Cute, right? I used my very neglected copic markers to color in the hair in faces.

Free Shapes and An Update

 

I am happy to say I’m still alive. 🙂 I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything (videos or blog post) but I thought I would at least pop in with some freebies. I won’t lie, things in my craft room have been collecting dust. It’s the end of the school year and I’m in a file prep, exam writing frenzy. The other thing that had been occupying my time was the planning of a close friend’s baby shower… and to make matters worst, I had to have a root canal done during the prepping of everything. I’m happy to say that most of the distractions are behind me and I’m starting to get back into the crafty swing of things.

Anyways, enough of my rambling, here are the free shapes.
