I saw this treat box in the Silhouette Library and thought, "I just got have this!" Well, and 6 or 7 more of the other ones. Yikes. Oh, but they are all so cute. Here's one that holds mini candy bars, bags, etc. It was super easy to put together too!
The paper came from a paper pad I bought at Big Lots a few years back. I would suggest using something a bit more sturdy. Double sided is good but not necessary.
The "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more 2. I used the Cricut Design Space Print Then Cut.
The actual box is Silhouette Image #66747 by Samantha Walker.
Hey there! Here's the card I made for the Just-A-Scrappin Design team's weekly challenge "Make A Shaker Card." I really had fun with this one. So much fun I'll be making more to send out to my family this year.
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I made a video for this card but silly me....I mistakenly deleted it before I edited and uploaded to youtube.
This card base is from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge. I used craft card stock for the base and Recollections (?) cardstock with the leaves on it. The "Autumn word is from the CTMH Artbooking. I cut a cream layer just slightly bigger than the brown layer to give it a shadow effect. The card has faux stitching around the top layer.
Isn't this just crazy cute! I absolutely love putting things together like this. I found this on the CardMaker Magazine's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/cardmakermag) and just had to try it. The Designer, Penny, even gives a Silhouette cut for you.
A special shout out and thank you to Deb (Deb B Craftin) for the adorable button that she made.
First, if you haven't had a chance to use Mary's stamps www.cardztvstamps.blogspot.com stop what you're doing and place your order now! These sentiments stamps are cute, versatile and of a very high quality. Plus there are so many choices!
The design has been asked to create a card, using Mary's stamps (easy peasy), using dots and stripes. I tied in a Halloween theme with all that. So, here's the picture of the card and a video on how I created it.
Here's what I used to make it:
CardzTV Stamp Set: Spooky Sayings
Card Base: Recollections Cream colored 110lb card stock. Cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Black Layer: Recollections cut at 5 1/4 x 4
Cream Layer: Recollections cut at 5 x 3 3/4. I used pinking (did I spell that right?) shears for the top and the bottom.
I'm just having a blast learning how to use the Cricut Design Space software and my Cricut Explore. Here's something I've created. I had to get a little help with this one. Thank you all for responding to my questions!
"Use It Or Lose It". Isn't that a great theme? This is my project for the Just-A-Scrappin (www.just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com) Design Team weekly challenge. I was going through my Fall/Thanksgiving paper, etc. and found this pre-designed mini (8 x 6) that I had bought a long time ago. Now, if you have something like this you have the choice whether to put all the photo mats and embellishments or not. The design of the paper is cute enough as it is! Just put your pictures on each page and journal!
I'm posting only the before pictures. You can see the final project in the video below.
Here's how I did it:
Thanks so much for watching and have a sun shiny day.
When you are a mother of young children there may be times, understandably, that you might think, "I can't wait until they get a bit older." Well, don't blink cause it'll happen before you know it.
2013 was the first year my boys did not want to have anything to do with Halloween. No dressing up, no parties, no trick or treating...nothing. So, what the heck do I take pictures of? Halloween and fall decorations of course.
I thought the page needed a little bit more so I cut out a few bats.
Here is a list of materials I used:
Base Paper: Big Lots
Photo Mats: My Minds Eye (Note: I had said Jillibean in the video)
Blood: Happy Hautings
Spider web: Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge
Bats: CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge
Skeleton: Happy Hauntings
Tombstone: Happy Hauntings
Fence: Martha Stewart punch
I can't believe how time flies. Just a year ago, my little baby (cough, cough) got his driver's permit.
It's always a challenge to fit 6 photos on one page but I think I pulled it off! I'm glad I found the die cuts that I did. Having the Silhouette Cameo and the Cricut Design Space gave me lots of choices.
My apologies to the Just-A-Scrappin design team members. I'd scheduled this post to run but just realized I'd put it on the wrong day.
Anyway, here it is! I only used Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this although it was a tough choice on what I was going to make because I love to color with Copics as well.
I got this idea from a friend of mine that has asked me to make "Tent Centerpieces" for her reunion. She saw this on Pinterest.
The materials I used were:
Paper: Bazzill (black, gold, green)
Pretty Pennants. I cut everything at 5 3/4 inches. This way I could fit all four cuts on one page.
Don Juan. They are cut at 2 3/4 using brown Bazzill paper.
Is visiting an ostrich farm on your bucket list? Well, it wasn't on mine but I'm sure glad I did. This was a blast.
The youtube video is on the complete page 1 (this one below). The second page I did off camera.
I'm still learning how to use the pens on the Cricut Explore and all that is involved. I ended up with what is on there but not really what I wanted. Trying to figure it all out will certainly keep me busy. Sigh....
Going back to school, for our little ones, can be exciting but also a bit overwhelming. If they walk into their new classroom with a little treat box filled with yummy candy the first day might not be so bad.
Here's what I made for my teacher friend for her 2nd grade students. She gave me a list of her students so I cut out their names and made it personal.
Here's how I made it:
Base: White Colorbok (Walmart)
Bus paper: Recollections
Name: Calligraphy Cricut cartridge
Lunch box: Tags Bags Boxes and More 2
Just a couple of notes: The Recollections school bus paper was not thick enough so I cut the shape out in white paper for the inside and glued the school bus paper on top.
I used fit to page and was able to cut out 2 shapes on one mat.
