Hi there! I hope you are getting ready for your holidays. I celebrate Christmas so I decided to do a “wrap” for my Christmas photo cards. I found this website that has this free cityscape SVG files that I used. Essentially what I did was use my ECAL program and welded the desired background to two rectangles. Here is a screenshot:

 

My machine did the rest

For the marquis I used my Storybook cricut cartridge and used the Accent Blackout feature of the image found on page 51. I cut it at 4.25″ wide x 3″ tall.

The stamp is from Ink-a- Doodle and the red ink is from Color Box. I used Stamping Up shimmer mist to give the red paper sparkle. The red paper is from Recollections at Michaels.

Here is the Video

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!

Yep… I have been MIA but I have been really busy. I have been planing this little birthday party and the theme was Minnie! (with a Christmas twist). Here are some pictures:

We We created custom centerpieces, water bottle labels, Minnie Christmas ornaments, custom stockings for the chimney, custom Minnie lanterns and even got a giant 4′ Minnie balloon! We scored on the giant 4′ giant Minnie stuffed animal as well… The birthday girl loved it!

Here is another idea on how to decorate my gift card holder SVG file that you can purchase at my store for $0.99 for a limited time! Here is the link

Keeping with the theme of mass produced items… here is an inexpensive SVG file ($0.99) on sale at my store so you can also create tons of these goodies! Here are some samples of what I have done with them.

Trick or Treat is coming and I am getting ready for the tons of kids in our lives 🙂 My daughter and I made these cute and simple 3″x3″ note cards.  We are using them to put in the treat bags we are going to hand out at school.

Use white 12″x12″ cardstock. Cut strips 3″ wide each. Then cut the strips at 6″. You will now have 3″ x 6″ strips. Fold them in half and there is your 3″x3″ note base.

Now cut 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares using your favorite pattern paper and adhere to the base.

Use the 2″ scallop and punch as many as you will need. Stamp the scallops using your favorite stamps. I used this stamp set for mine. Note the mommie is from a stamp set I got at Walmart from Studio G. Then simple add a dimensional to the center of the scallop and adhere to the note card. That is is… You are done!
