Cloche Christmas Card - Silhouette Design Store

Hello, I love Concord and 9th's new Christmas Cloche Dies and the wonderful cards that the design team created with it. I almost bought it but I have so many dies that I haven't even used yet that I could not justify buying more. So I looked through the Silhouette Design Store which I have a monthly subscription and found the layered cloche snowglobe. I just adjusted it a little to add the things I liked about the Concord and 9th one, like the knob on top and some snow on the bottom. I can't remember which tree I used but Silhouette Design Store has so many to choose from the same with the bow and greenery. I really love the merry font used in the die set and the closest one I had was the family farmhouse script which I love, you can get that from the Store also. I had so much fun looking for cut files I could use to create this card!

Fall Wreath Card

Hello there, the card I'm sharing today almost ended up in the garbage a good couple of times. The fall wreath which is from the Silhouette Design Store would be better suited for a scrapbook page or If I ever use it again I'd thicken the lines a little, I had pieces breaking off and it wasn't that small of a cut I put it on a 5 x 5 piece of cardstock. But in the end, I like how it turned out, it's very rustic. The Fall Banner is also from the Silhouette store. For the background, I used peacock feathers distress oxide ink with a Tim Holtz stencil called splatters.

Little Wildflower Seed Packs - Silhouette Success Challenge

Here's my Silhouette Success Week 3 Challenge for September. This challenge was to use this weeks freebie at the Silhouette Design Store little wildflower. I made some digital paper and then cut out these seed pack envelopes. Just another way to use a design you may not have used otherwise.

Halloween Record Album Notecard

Hello, I've been reorganizing my craft supplies, and boy do I have so much. There are so many stamps and dies that I haven't even used yet. A lot of these items were must-haves for me at the time so I thought, so I'm really going to try to cut back on stamps and dies and use my cutting machine. My biggest problem is watching YouTube videos of Design Team members making adorable projects with these stamps and dies. Like I just watched one of Concord and 9th's using their Greatest Hits Dies and I almost went to order it but instead, I looked in the Silhouette Design Store which I'm a member of, and sure enough, a couple came up. I ended up using the one from Lori Whitlock called Record Library Card.

I just wanted to use the record alone as the insert so I trimmed down the top of the cover and didn't use the piece that the record attaches to. Why I love some dies so much is the fact they add nice embossing features to them and I wanted the rings that go around the record so I offset a bunch of circles and used the cutting machine to score them on black-white core cardstock, I think my Cameo 4 did a good job.

Here is the record inside the holder, I used white cardstock on the back so I can use it as a notecard. The paper I used is one of Doodlebug Design's older collections Booville, twine is from Annies Paper Boutique Grape Limeade and the Monster Mash is a Miss Kate's Cuttables which I thought was perfect for this Halloween record album!

Silhouette Success Challenge

Hello there, I've been trying to get myself motivated to craft again and I think a challenge is exactly what I need right now. Over at Silhouette Success's Facebook group, the challenge is to use this week's free design from the Silhouette Design Store and no new craft supplies, just the supplies you have already. Here is a link to this week's freebie Thinking of You.

It's a very simple card, I probably wouldn't have downloaded the design but the challenge inspired me to make something with it. This is what I came up with, just made slight changes to it. I'm pretty happy with the end result.
