Lots of Projects to share today!

Hello! We all know life gets in the way of our crafting and last week is what happen to me! My husband had to have emergency surgery and a week of all things fell on my shoulders. He is recovering and will be back to new very soon. Now, I did have some projects to share and hope you like them. I have been making some things for our little granddaughters basketball team members and fun gifts for others.  All these were made with my Silhouette Cameo because it was in front of me lol.   I wanted some new covers for some pillows that were looking rough and my friend Jamie over at CraftChameleon had some perfect ones.  These are 18 x 18 envelope style and come in a few different colors.  The designs for these are from the Silhouette Store and love how they turned out.  I used White Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl.


As I said, I have been making shirts for the little one and here is one for her to wear when supporting the local high school team.  I made this design myself and love doing the knockout.  I am still learning and since doing this design, I have improved it.  I also made one for her American Girl Doll.

                                                  Doll shirts with matching headbands
Time to get into the holiday season and this is the first thing I made.  This design is also from the Silhouette Store.  I did the paint, vinyl, paint and peel method for this.  I used just an acrylic paint for this.  I also waxed it.
One of the grandmothers on the team saw the bag I made my daughter in law and wanted one to carry stuff in to the ball games.  These bags are huge and are perfect.  I just used the Sports World font and added it to the bag in glitter vinyl.  Hope you liked these and next week I will show you a calendar I am working on.  Have a super crafty week!

Another Disney Layout

Hello and welcome. I have been working on a couple vinyl projects, but was not quite done for this blog post so I will share those later. Today I am sharing another Disney layout with you.  I still have lots of Disney to scrap yet and surprised to still come up with ideas lol.  I created this one using the Silhouette Cameo. For this layout, I used all svg files from the Silhouette StoreFilm Strip Cards #27809, Film Clapper#5548, Stars #18755, and Film Reels#26030.  I used Call of Duty Ops font from Dafont.com for my title.  I also got in my Shotbox and that is what I took my pictures with.  My room light is not great, but this is wonderful.  I can't wait to use it on these vinyl projects I am working on.  You can find it on HSN and Amazon.   Hope you have a very crafty week!

Time for some scrapbooking!

Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing a Disney layout with you. I am still working on my trip from last year and hope to get it finished soon since I have like 3 trips after this one to do!!! At least I won't run out of things to do.  Been working on shirts and other items for customers, but do have this one to share with you.  For this project, I used my Cricut Explore and files from Miss Kate Cuttables and PPBN Designs (new name change coming).  For the 2015 Mickey and Minnie, these are from Miss Kate Cuttables and also the Mickey hands.  The Mickey and Minnie borders are from PPBN Designs.  I did change the Minnie border because there were so many little odd pieces that I just cut the bow red and used a white pen for the dots.  I wasn't going to try to put all those tiny pieces together.  The dots were just made with paper punches.  These pictures are hard to tell in this picture are of Main Street of the snow falling before the parade and the start of the Very Merry Christmas Parade.  Hopefully, next time my pictures will be better because I ordered the Shotbox and it should be here on Friday.  Will give a review on that too.    Enjoy your weekend and will try to see you again next week.  We might take a weekend away which is much needed for the hubby! Happy Crafting.

Time for a Halloween Celebration!

Welcome. Today I have lots of goodies to share with you. It's that time a year for those little ghosts and goblins to visit and I will share some great ideas with you for a fun party.  I would like thank my friends over at Apexembdesigns for some wonderful svg files.  Be sure to visit their site by clicking their name.  They offer the latest and greatest in embroidery and cuttable designs.  They also make custom designs too!  Be sure to sign up and receive free svgs.  Right now, you will find all Halloween designs on sale for 25% off with code Halloween.  Now I would love to share some of my creations with you. 
Time to set up for a party and you know it is so much fun to decorate your table and make your guest marvel with how creative you are!  I have created cute drink jars that have the cutest little witches.
           I used printable vinyl and put these on the cute jars, added some ribbon and cute straws. 
                  This is the cute witches that are available in this set called Witch Pack Cuttables.
Now every party needs games and I made a pumpkin toss game with images from Pumpkin Faces cuttable.  I cut the pumpkin and features out of cardstock and made a hole in the mouth to toss plastic ping pong balls through.  I mounted it on foam core that I made into table board.  Lots of fun playing this game.
This is called the Pumpkin Faces Cuttable and has so many fun faces you can make for cards, scrapbooking and lots of other fun crafts!
No party is complete without a photo booth and some props.  I just took a piece of foam core to create a frame, painted and decorated it.  I used Ghost Cute Cuttables to help decorate the frame and for the props I used the Halloween Masks Cuttables.  I loved these mask and in Cricut Design Space, I used the slice feature to cut eyes in the mask to be used for the props. 
                     Look how fun these masks are and with 8 different masks to have fun with!

                                   These cute little ghosts are from the Ghost Cute Cuttables.

Well no party is complete without a cool shirt to wear and this is a cute one, of course, my model is my sweet granddaughter Peyton.  I used  Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl and cut with my Silhouette Cameo and used one of the designs from the Boo-tiful Cuttable

Love all these adorable designs on the Boo-tiful Cuttable.  I hope you enjoyed and please go visit my friends at Apexembdesigns at www.apexembdesigns.com/cuttables
