Monday's Die Cutting Machine Project

Good Monday morning to all, and here it is the last day of March.  Where or where is the month gone to?  Before I share my two projects using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the items, my TIP is:  if a card that you had created is blah, bling it some more....

I chose two of my past projects that I created using in Silhouette Cameo, and I believe, in this case SCAL software to create the baby dress.  I'm not sure where the cupcake pattern came from so I'm not able to give credit where it's due, my apologizes for that.

First photo is of the baby dress I created and than added more bling to it to update the card.  I added baby pearls (SU Pearls) to the both sleeves, and where the holes are at hem of the dress I took my Wink by Stella pen (Purple) and colored inside the holes.

Supplies used: My own pattern file for the Baby dress card.Ribbon from stashthe small pearls in sleeves; and two down the front from Stampin! UpWink by Stella glitter pen. Here is the 2nd card I c…

Saturday homemade home decor item

Hello scrappy and crafty friends. Hope you are having a great weekend so far. This is Barbara and I want to share with you today how to make a decor canvas for your home. I will also teach you how to cut your own stencils with your cricut.

My tip for the day: when using stencils, be sure that you do not have very much paint on your sponge. Dab your sponge in the paint then dab it on clean paper to remove much of the paint before you paint through the stencil. I use really inexpensive make up sponges.

Here is the finished project:

My daughter and son in law went to Paris this last fall and I wanted to make them something to remind them of their trip. Recipea regular canvas from the hobby storeacrylic paintmake up wedge spongesa die cut if desiredstencils Cricut machine to cut your own stencils if you wish or you can use ready made ones.

First I want to show you how to make your own stencils using your cricut and CCR. Open CCR and select your shape. I chose a circle.

Friday's Layout

Hi friends!  Zenita (aka Scrappinwith'Z) here for ScrapBook Blessings Club to share with you Friday's layout. We will be using the Silhouette and Black Cat Cougar machines today.

First, I have my tip of the day for you.... When you have a souvenir you want to put on a layout, store it with the pictures, so you won't lose it. I had my runner's number for this layout and I can't find it!!! It will show up tomorrow, I'm sure.

Onto today's project...
 This is the layout that I made of my first 5K that I ran back in September 2013. I ran in honor of my friend Trish Vandeven who thankfully has won her fight!!
I hope you enjoyed today's project. If you have a question, please leave it in the comments, and a DT member will get back to you.  You can visit me to see more card/project ideas at Scrappin'With Z. Also, you can join up to ourFacebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Clubfor more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques.
And as always, comments …

Resist-able paper and Color Shine - Thursday Review

Hey kids!  Cindy back on the SBC blog today to share a product review.  I'm playing with resistable paper and Color Shine today.  This is my first time trying out both of these products. 

TiP:  Keep a roll of paper towels handy.  It's going to get messy....LOL!

Heidi Swapp Color Shine - teal, primrose
Pink Paislee - Artisan Wings- resist-able paper (8x8)

Color Shine is cool!  Shake it until you hear the little ball--like a spray paint can.  Press the pump sprayer all the way down and use sweeping strokes across your paper/embellishment/ribbon. 

It's easy to get carried away.  I think I may have used a bit too much.  Let it sit on your paper for a few seconds.  Then wipe away the extra with your paper towels.

Most of it wiped off...oops!  Live and learn, right?  LOL!  But look how pretty.  And it was so easy! 

If you don't have any Color Shine you can also use markers, inks, paints and stains with …

Birthday Party Decor!

So glad you could join us today. I have some great party decorations to share with you today. This is going to be a photo heavy post...there were several decorations and one really sweet picture of my daddy.

My sister and I surprised my dad with an 80th birthday party! He did not even know I was coming from Florida to North Carolina! I was so happy we were able to surprise him.

Tip: Be prepared for any type of wall situation. Since I was unsure of the conditions I was going to find with walls and where I needed to put the décor, I went prepared with tape, ribbon, and even some small nails. It ended up I just needed to use the packing tape.

I used the newer Cricut cartridge Create a Friend to do all the décor...this is absolutely the cutest cartridge I have ever seen! I would say definitely a must if you have a Cricut machine! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the current challenge here at Scrapbook Blessings Club!

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,
