Paper Fun Part 1

Hello all. Today I have a Valentine's inspired project.  This is a two part post. The second half to this set will be posted on Wednesday, January 24th and it is the grand finale to this project. A must see, so tune back in!

I received the newest double sided stack from DCWV called the Wild Side. It has all sorts of different types of animal prints and textures. When I saw the Cheetah print set, I knew immediately I wanted to make the 3D Stiletto. Which then led to doing a matching tie, 2 champagne flutes, and 1 stand.  All four files can be found on SnapDragon Snippets page or the Silhouette Store.

The great thing with the double sided stacks is that you don't have to decorate the other side of the project.
However, I decided I wanted the inside to be black with a gold insole and a black glitter heel.
Those tiny little clothes pins are great to have on hand while working with 3D projects.
So I found it easier to form the shoe first and then add in the sole.
 First one down
 Can't have a sassy heel without some bling!

I was able to tie in part 1 and 2 of this project with the ribbon, bling, and matching handmade flowers.

DCWV Wild Side 12 x 12 Double Sided stack

DCWV Glitzy Glitter stack

Poinsettia Passion

Hello all. I hope you have a nice Christmas. I am here with my version of two sets of poinsettia cards from the JGW Poinsettia Passion files from SVG Attic.

JGW Poinsettia Passion

The two cards I picked from this set were already such great files that I did very minimal additions to it. Other than adding sentimental tags, everything else remains as is. 

By exchanging a few layers of colored flower pedals, I was able to make the same flowers, yet have them be different on each card.
The second set of cards were just as favorable as the first set. Hard to pick a favorite.

  I love the inside of these cards!

Materials Used: 
DCWV Very Merry Stack
Christmas Flip/side stack

Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio~Designers edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Craftwell eBrush
Sharpie markers

Christmas Cards 2017

Merry Christmas to everyone, please enjoy your family and friends this holiday season!

This year I made 36 Christmas cards. This was my first 24 so all in all there were 6 different designs.

I decided I desperately needed to use DCWV's newest Winter Frost stack for the first batch. I love love love the double sided stacks because then I don't have to worry about decorating the inside of the card! I matched the cards with silver sparkly paper from the Glitzy Glitter stack also by DCWV.
I was able to fit two cards to one 12 x 12 sheet. Doubles not pictured in this post.

I decided to add some color to the ornaments and Santa bags with the Craftwell eBrush.
I find that the smooth glitter paper is not only easy to cut with the machines, but easy to change color with markers.

 Final Project

For the second set of cards, I decided to make them a spinner just for a little added fun! 

Materials Used: 

DCWVinc. Winter Frost, Christmas Flip/Side, and Glitzy Glitter stacks

Baby Cooper

The wonderful owners of SVG Attic have a new baby to celebrate this Christmas season! The I-team got together and decided to create some projects to help celebrate the arrival of baby Cooper! A big huge Congratulations to Mike and Kenzie!

For my card, I took the race car box card from the CG Box Cards file and modified it into a crib card in a box. I was going to leave it as is and do the race car theme, but I didn't have any paper I was happy with so I had to improvise!
A quick tutorial on how I changed one file into a crib file is posted below! 
Each baby item can be found in the Silhouette Design Store under Snapdragon Snippets
The little bear is actually a polar bear Snapdragon Snippets file, but I thought it made a cute teddy bear.


Step 1: Eliminate excess elements that will not be used.
Step 2: Using the slice tool, I took the flag and car off of the inserts.

Step 3: Create crib portion
 Eliminate the small score portion on both pieces

Step 4: Add in some shapes for fun details

Step 5: Insert crib slats ***Sugar tip: I aligned both pieces to line up slats equally on both pieces***

 Step 6: Create inserts
 After downsizing and figuring out the layout weld to the rectangle pieces
 And boom, crib card!
