10th Birthday Layout

Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today. I created this fun layout of my son's 10th Birthday Party.

I got the inspiration from a Facebook Group called Scrapbook Layouts

For the left side I cut a one. I did the journaling inside the one with the pen tool on my Cameo. Love journaling with my pen tool! 
I did a key at the bottom listing out all the kids who attended the party.

For the right side of the page I cut a zero and placed the photos. I designed it my self and got the inspiration from a camping layout in the FB group I'm in. I added numbers for the key.

If you're interested in the circle SVG just send me an email at
I'd be happy to send it your way.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Two Number Fives!

Hi Everyone! I have a GO TEAM! Soccer Layout to share with you today.
This is my design team project for Miss Kate Cuttables.
Don't forget to pick up the Miss Kate Cuttable's Freebie of the day.

This was a fun layout to create. At the end of every soccer season there is a tournament day. All teams play in all age groups. When we went to visit my Great Niece play her game we discovered she was on the red team just like my son.
They both turned around and could not believe they were both Number 5!

For my layout I did print and cut of the Boy Soccer Player and the Girl Soccer Player on my Silhouette Cameo. I added the 5 to the shirts.


For the Title I used the Go Team Go! Soccer Title.
Instead of using the second GO I added their names with the pen tool on my Cameo.
I took one of the banners at the bottom and enlarged to include my journaling. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

MKC Green Challenge

Miss Kate Cuttable's March Challenge is all about "GREEN"! I created a canvas for my project. I used the PVPP method.


First step is to paint the canvas. This will be the letter color. I used white acrylic for mine.

Next I set up the wording in my Cameo Designer Edition Software. 
I used:

The lips are from:

Hugs and Kisses Title

I cut the design using vinyl. You can use any color for this since it's going to be removed. Weed out (remove) the background. I used Con-tact paper to transfer the vinyl to the canvas.

I added one more coat of white paint over the entire canvas. This helps to seal the vinyl down.

After it dried I then painted the green background color. 
After that dried I peeled the vinyl to expose the white letters.

Stop by the Miss Kate Cuttable's FB Page to enter the challenge which runs until 3/25.

Stop by the MKC Blog to check out the creative projects by the design team!

Tulip Box Card

Hello Everyone! If you follow along you saw the box card I created on my last post. 

I purchased the Springtime Box Card SVG KIt from SVG Cuts and have to say I'm officially hooked on box cards!
Here is a look at the box card in the envelope.

When you pull out the card it is flat and here's how it looks.

Now for the big reveal....It pops open and WOW a 3D card.
(Even my boys and husband were impressed by this

Here's a few more looks - looking down and the back. I used the pen tool to add a Birthday Message.


I switched up Mary at SVG Cut's card a bit. It was originally designed to have all the tulips at the same level.

I staggered them. Thought I'd share how I did it in the Silhouette Designer Edition Software.

STEP 1 - Open the SVG files for the 1st and 2nd set of tulips.

STEP 2 - Draw boxes to remove some of the stems - see red boxes highlighted below.

STEP 3 - Select Subtract under the Modify menu. It will delete the area you selected.

STEP 4 - Move the tulips and stems down to overlap the bottom strips.

STEP 5 - I outlined the images to show you how if you were to cut them now it would cut them separately.
Here is the tricky part....1) Select the bottom strips and hit ungroup. Select just the strip and the flowers/stems above it and select Weld.
(If you select the entire thing the numbers and fold marks would disappear) 

STEP 6 - If you select Cut Line Settings and select "Cut" this is how it should appear.
You are now ready to cut!

Hope you liked my box card and the tutorial.
