I decided I wanted to do a little decorating for Valentines day but my wallet said "No can do".... so...I printed some free stuff off the Internet and made my own! I love the Vintage kissing booth sign. I aged it with distress ink and mounted on other papers. I had a frame laying around and VOILA! Free decoration! The others were printed out from free images too! I'm going to make a few other things tonight when I get home. Thanks for stopping by. Have a GREAT day!!

Happy Saturday!
Guess I have been in a vintagey/black mood lately. Cut out the flower with my Silhouette. The butterfly is from the dollar bin at Joanns. I added 2 rhinestones to the butterfly but the sparkle doesn't show in the photo. Sponged  the edges of everything with black ink. Added some washi tape and a bow. Popped up the tag for some dimension. Sentiment is from Paper Smooches...LOVE her sentiment stamps!! Have a great day!

Good Morning!
Here's the Elephant card I was working on! Made 18! He is a Stampin Up stamp...so cute..got him out of the clearance section. The strip at the top is Washi tape. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on it. Added a few sparkly dots to finish it off. I also added a little chalk to blush his cheeks and ears.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Gave my Silhouette a workout last night! I needed 18 birthday cards for a swap today. These don't have a lot of stamping but I think they will do! This is the Gerbera Daisy cut file from Silhouette. It was fun to make them out of different colors. Still don't have the sizing thing down but I am learning!...
Now I have 18 more cards to make for my friend to have something to swap. Her brother just passed away from cancer. She hasn't crafted in several months. She stayed by his bedside the whole time. I'm going to use an elephant stamp for those cards. Guess I better get to it or I will never finish in time. At least I have all the images stamped and colored..just need to assemble. Have a great day. Stop by tomorrow and I will have that card posted. Toodles!

Hello! Another card I made with my Silhouette Cameo...The bird cage and the flourish were just cut out. The bird was printed then cut out. I LOVE this card! The papers are so pretty. I inked the ribbon a little to look old.I just may keep this one for myself. Thanks for the visit!

Monday,monday... Where did the week go? Mine was kind of busy. A very good friend lost her brother to cancer. So sad for her! She has a great group of friends so we are all going to make sure we are "there" for her no matter what... I had fun making a few tags. I went to a crop and we made something similar so I had to come home and "play" Fun project to do! I also made the heart card with scraps that were on my desk. I've seen several cards with envelopes with things coming out of the envelope. I wanted to give it a try. I think it turned out pretty cute! well, I need to get myself dressed and get to cleaning(maybe!) We will see...LOL! Have a great day!!

Monday,monday... Hello! Made some of those cards we all hate to make but always need! Went to an all day crop on saturday and worked on these. They are all cuts from my new Silhouette. I really like the machine..it cuts so much more intricate designs. I still love my Cricut and dont plan on getting rid of it.Today I have to get my class stuff done because tomorrow is class! I have all the ideas, just have to get them made! Hoope you have a wondeful day. See ya soon!

Hello! Having trouble with Blogger lately. Wasn't letting me upload pictures! Sorry about that! So excited! I got the Silhouette Cameo with my Christmas money and it cuts such intricate designs. Look what I cut...such thin lines!
The Bear card was also cut out with it. I still like my Cricut and will keep it because I use it quite a bit. But with the Cameo, I am able to cut out any font on my computer as well. Cant wait to see what else it can do! Have a great day!

Hello again!
Another quick card I made...Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart. I love these colors! Small punched flower has super glittery bling for the center. Heading out to store and then have to undecorate my tree when I get home. Feels like I just put it up. Thanks for dropping in. See you soon!

Happy New Year! Hope yours was a good one. Mine was kind of quiet. Spent the evening crafting with a friend.  It was a really nice evening.
I cant take credit for the design of this card. Saw it on Pinterest and loved it! Only changed it very slightly. I just love the fun colors and the rhinestones! Gonna go for a walk now with another friend...hope to get some more cards made when I get home. I have 2 classes coming up and I need to come up with 8 different cards. Wish me luck :) Thanks for stopping!
