Winter Wishes Sleigh Ride

I'm so happy I was on vacation this week and really had the chance to play with my new Silhouette Cameo.  Here is another print n cut card, the background is a tag from Echo Park's Winter Wishes digital collection.  I traced the kids sleigh riding and placed it on the tag in SSDE and printed and then cut on the cameo.  The Merry & Bright, Shine and Spirit are all elements from the collection also.  I love the brightness of the kids against the soft winter background.  You can download the digi of the kids free from here.  To finish I wrapped some Grape Fizz Trendy Twine around the tag.

Valentine Kids

I thought this freebie was so adorable I just has to create a print n cut card with it using my Silhouette Cameo.  I traced it in SSDE and created an offset and filled it with digital paper from Carta Bella's Devoted paper.  All the other elements and background paper is also from the Devoted collection.  The pnc on the Cameo is just so easy, what a pleasure to work with.  I also used a touch of Trendy Twine Cotton Candy, I ordered some of their new colors and can't want to get them!!

I almost forgot click here for the free download, there is a bunch of awesome freebies there.

Winter Fun New Year's Card!

I made this card quick for the Carta Bella Winter Fun challenge on their Facebook page.  It's all digital paper and elements from their collection, I used my silhouette cameo to do a print n cut on all the elements, so simple.  Up until now I really never used the elements from the collections I bought but now that I have the cameo I'm having so much fun cutting them out.

For the numbers I created a shadow layer and trace around each one.  I did the same thing with the buttons layering them on top of the tag and then tracing.  I threaded some Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine through each button.

Bee Mine!

Looking through my SVG Cut files I came across the Memory Garden Designer Page, I love this kit and haven't used it in awhile.  Though this kit is great for scrapbook pages I bought it for card making, it has the best shapes for creating nice layers for your cards.

The top layer of this card is from the kit, even has the stitching where I used my Berry Red Trendy Twine.  The bee is from Cheryl's Cute Bugs and the bee mine is from the 24 Valentines kit.  I altered the bee mine, I made a copy sliced the e and added making it bee, make a shadow and welded it to the existing shadow layer.  The digital paper is Carta Bella's Devoted, isn't it so pretty, totally love!!

Vintage Rose

This stamp is from Unity's December KOTM and so is the sentiment.  I just love anything vintage and this stamp set is all that.  I stamped it on watercolor paper with archival black ink and colored with my Distress Markers.  I wanted more of a distress look so I went around the edge very roughly with a versamark pen and embossed with gold.  I'm trying to use up some of my scraps so the paper came from my scrap pile, it's Echo Parks Victoria Gardens, I love it, never gets old!  The pretty Trendy Twine is Strawberry Cupcake.

A Little Bit Of Spring!

I've been making so many Christmas crafts that I could use a little dose of spring flowers.  So when I saw this stamp in Unity's December KOTM I just wanted to make a card with it.

What a great stamp to use my Tim Holtz Distress Markers with too!!  The stamp sentiment is also from the kit, what an awesome set this is.  The pretty Trendy Twine is Posy, a light pink and cream, goes perfectly with this project.

Unity Valentine Card

I've been neglecting my unity stamps so I organized them all today, now it's easier for me to look through and  make some cards.  I decided to make a valentine card using stamps from the November KOTM and one from August's.

I used a touch of Black Licorice Trendy Twine on the button, the paper is older, had it in my stash for awhile now.

Snow Much!!

I'm lovin' this penguin cut set that I purchased at Miss Kate Cuttables, it's just so cute.  She has adorable cutting files, perfect for a card lover like myself!!  The digital paper is Wintertime from Echo Park and I used some Holly Green Trendy Twine.

New Years Tuxedo Card

Here's a quick and easy card for New Years.  This tuxedo is from SVG Cuts newest kit New Years Eve and the Happy New Year is a freebie.  I designed it in Silhouette Studio and did a print n cut and then added the bow tie which I also did a pnc.  The Cameo makes this very quick and easy when you don't want to mess with a lot of layers.

Silhouette Pocket Calendar File

I made this pocket calendar for my smashbook in MTC, eCal and as an SVG which you can get here, but since I have a new Cameo and Silhouette Studio I figured I make a studio file.  Plus I wanted to make something with Echo Parks Winter Wishes to enter their Facebook contest and thought this would be good print n cut practice for me.

The calendar is grouped together, the template uses a background pattern from the silhouette software, to change it ungroup and select the background and change, but don't move it or everything will be off.  Also ungroup the months and add to template.  There are score marks just fold and glue, it fits nicely on a 7" x 10" smash book size page.  I really love this template and use it often, I just marker in my days and it's done.  Here I cut my own page, all paper and elements are from Echo Park Winter Wishes digital collection.  As you can see the silhouette cut them out beautifully, I couldn't believe the penguin ski poles, totally awesome!  I figured this will come in handy to some for the new year!

You can get the studio file here.

So here is my Day 11 Tag a shaker which I totally scrap lifted the idea from Melanie over at The Paper Retreat, just love her shaker tags, take a look here!!

To add some fun to the shaker tag I did a print and cut on the bottom layer of the tag so the person has to shake the tag to see if it's their present!

For the tag top I added a piece of acetate behind the window and cutout three more pieces and glued them together.  Added some confetti to the bottom tag where the writing is and glued the top layer down.  A quick and easy shaker tag!

Santa Wine Box!

Need a cute Christmas box for that wine lover, check out my Santa Wine Box!  I really enjoyed making this project and I think it really came out great!  I used the wine box from SVG Cuts Classic Gift Boxes kit and just added the Santa head I created on top.  I have a word and excel file you can download with directions and sizes below.

The hat is the cornucopia from the Happy Thanks kit, I create the pom pom, beard and hat fringe from yarn. The head is the small pumpkin for the Pick a Pumpkin kit.  For the hair I used the nutcrackers from Clara's Christmas Eve and the face is from the Santa Card in the Open House kit.  I used black burlap for his belt and the buckle is also from the Happy Thanks kit, I cutout three and glued together for added strength.  

The pattern paper I used is from Carta Bella's Christmas Day Collection, totally love this paper!  The whole project was done in Make The Cut and cutout with my KNK Zing.

I love how his face came out and the hair and beard looks so awesome!

Really an easy project to put together and a great way to dress up a bottle of wine!  You can download the supply list and directions HERE and the SVG Cuts files used and sizes HERE.
