Four Seasons Triangle Background – Free Printable

Morning crafters! I am sharing a little pack of digi paper today! I have enjoyed the triangle trend for a while and finally found time to create some freebies. I will share the .studio file (for use with your Silhouette SD/Cameo) next month. There are 4 paper in this kit. You are welcome to share the projects you made with them online but please credit and link to this post (not the file directly). I made two samples for your inspiration. The paper will be 6″ x 6″ printed at 100% scale. I am using 85% scale for my two cards today. Using the scraps from making the card above: My motivation was the new 10 Minutes Craft Dash Challenge. I’m a slow crafter but I found my best cards were mostly created in a whip with some patterned paper. The cool sketch for my first card is from Paper […]

Get Whale Soon Porthole Shaped Card

Hello crafters, I am really having fun making shaped cards with my Silhouette Cameo. The porthole is a free SVG file (linked below) I imported (you will need the designer version of Studio to do so). Cute whale from LIfestyle Crafts. Sentiment from Joy’s LIfe. Cardstock from American Crafts Primaries pack. I used about half sheet of 3D dots for all the dimensions! The porthole is also a wonderful way to frame a photo! I am playing in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Splish Splash SUPPLIES (code WAFFLE for 20% off at lifestylecrafts.com) InLinkz.com

Typewriter Hype for Tuesday Trigger

Morning Crafters! It’s been a while since I played in the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. When I saw this super cool typewriter for this week, I just had to make time to create a card for it! And this time I am playing with some glitter pen from Cri-kits for my Silhouette Cameo. The typewriter is a sketch pattern in  the Silhouette Online Store. “you’re one of a kind” is from Sweet Popsicle Puns by Joy’s Life. I wrote the “HELLO” in the circles myself :) Sealed with some glassy accents! Let’s turn off the light and take a closer look on the glittered lines: Cool? I think so :) We will have a blog hop with giveaways on August 25 about these super cool pens for your digital die cut machines (Cricut, Pazzles, Silhouette and Eclips). Hope to see you then!

A Tree-t for You!

Morning Crafters! Today I have a shaped card for Joy’s Life DT and Paper Crafts July Gallery Challenge. Tree image is from this free cut file on Deena Rutter’s blog. I copied the tree a couple times in Silhouette Studio and erased the lines I do not need for each layer. Yes, the shapes are not closed but it is easier to just hand cut the connections after the machine cut. I placed the files to the corners so I can cut them out all at once using 3 different 6″x6″ paper. Stamp: (sentiment from Yummy Puns) Joy’s Life; Patterned Paper: (Hippie Plaid, Flowery, Groovy from Flower Child Collection; Hailey, Abbie’s Sunshine from Oh Happy Day Collection) GCD Studios. Punches: (grass border) Fiskars, (photo corner) Martha Stewart. And here is what the photo corners are used for: I mounted the gift card closer to the bottom of the tree so […]
