First Day of School Canvas

Hi Everyone - Today was our first day of school. Over the weekend I created some fun canvases for my boys to hold during their photo shoot. They are not big fans of getting photographed - you'd think they'd know better living with a Mom that's a scrapper.


I took some photos of the steps I took to create the canvases:

Step 1 : Paint canvases white


Step 2: Cut design from vinyl  weed out the background.
Add transfer tape to design (I use contact paper)


Step 3 : Apply vinyl to canvas.


Step 4 : Add another coat of white paint.


Step 5: Paint canvas - I matched their shoes/outfits for the day.


Step 6 : After it dries remove the vinyl to reveal the white behind it.


Here are my two handsome fellas posing with their signs.

Font is LePetitPerisien - It is part of a bundle from Hungry JPEG.

MKC Sweet Treat Challenge

Hi Everyone - Miss Kate Cuttables is having a fun challenge over on the Facebook Page ----- Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria.

~It’s a Sweet Treat Challenge~

The challenge runs until 8/24. Stop on over and check it out.

For my project I created a layout featuring my boys making some sweet treats for Christmas. They had a blast baking cookies and measuring everything out. They also liked sampling the M&Ms and the finished cookies.


I used the Baking Up Memories SVGs for my layout.


The titles from Miss Kate Cuttables go together so nicely.


Just love this cute gingerbread man which is also included.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Another Wedding Shadow Box

Hello Everyone - It’s been quite some time since I blogged! 

My summer has been super busy and seems like we are always on the go which has been fun. I have a few scrapbook weekends scheduled. Summer is always a blast but I do look forward to crafty time in the fall.

Here is a shadowbox I created for my Miss Kate Cuttable’s Design team project:


I love the sparkle in the invite and made the shadowbox elements match.


For my background cut I used Miss Kate Cuttable’s Decorative Doily.
I added some foam core under the bottom layer to pop it off and add some "shadows" to the box.


I also popped off the invite and added some flowers and leaves from this Flower Group.
Here’s a closeup look:


Stop by the Miss Kate Cuttable’s Blog for lots of inspiration.

There is a fun challenge that will be posted soon.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wedding Invitation Shadow Boxes

Hello, It's been awhile since I blogged. Life has been busy and we spent a wonderful week at the beach (lots of great beach photos to scrap!)

Hope you are having a great day today and Fourth of July Weekend.

It is wedding season and I have a few wedding shadow boxes to share today. These make great gifts for wedding showers or for the wedding. You could also display at the wedding on a nice stand.

My first one was a wedding featuring light purple roses and gerber daisies. 
((Click on the image - get a closer look is well worth the click!))


I used the 3D Rose flowers from SVG Cuts’ Crush On You Boxes SVG Kit.
The other flowers are from 3D Flowers SVG Kit.
There are great tutorials showing how to assemble.


I used my go to most favorite bracket for this one. It’s from SVG Cuts’ Memory Garden Designer Page SVG Kit.


The second wedding theme was all about rustic. Burlap, Babies Breath, and Neutral Colors.


They had a K + G theme going throughout so I matched the K + G and cut it on my Cameo using white heat transfer vinyl. 
I then ironed it on the burlap to create a border across the bottom.

Here’s a closer look:



These two wedding themes were completely different - that’s what makes a customized gift perfect!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Wedding Theme Challenge

Hello - It’s June and Wedding time. Miss Kate Cuttables is having Wedding Theme Challenge. 
I made this wedding card for a recent wedding I went to.


I used the All You Need Is Love Phrase from Miss Kate Cuttables.


I took the file and duplicated it and used the offset in the Silhouette Designer Edition Software.
I cut the offset to help with the type placement when paper piecing.


I cut the all and the is along with the hearts from a silver adhesive stock. 
It was so easy and convenient to cut and adhere.


Head on over to the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Page to enter the challenge!

Guest Designer Die Cuttin’ Divas

I'm super excited to be guest designer at Die Cuttin’ Divas!


It’s Challenge #219 and the theme is National Aquarium Month.

I needed a summer theme banner for my mantle so I decided to make a mini banner with 3 panels.


First I started with some canvas I picked up at Joanns and trimmed the banner shapes with a rotary cutter.

I then ironed on the fusible web to the back of the fabric. I placed the fabric on my cutting mat and cut with my Cameo. 

I cut the Miss Kate Cuttable’s Seahorse and Fish SVG File.
This simplistic file is perfect for cutting fabric. I did not cut the eyes from the file. I hot glued buttons instead.

Here is a closeup view of the banners:



I cut the blue fabric 1" wider than the canvas and double folded it over to finish off the edges.
I stitched down the sides and stitched ribbon across the top. I hot glued buttons on the ribbon to finish it off.
Here is a look at the back of the banners:


I hope you enjoyed my project. I would like to thank Die Cuttin’ Diva’s for having me as Guest Designer.
Stop on over to the Die Cuttin’ Diva’s Blog to check out the great Design Team Projects and enter the Aquarium Theme Challenge. 
There are some great prizes up for grabs!

Miss Kate Cuttable’s Print and Cut Cards


Hello Everyone - It’s my time to share on the Miss Kate Cuttable’s Blog.

For all my cards I did the print and cut technique on my Cameo.
These cards use the Assorted Owls.


Here is the Cute Frog. By adding a few embellishments like the gems it dresses up the cards up a bit but still keeps it simple and fast.


I like to have the cards on hand for Birthdays, Thank You Cards or for a Baby Shower.
When I cut the images I also added the sentiments to the page. I like to keep a variety of sentiments on hand and customize depending on what I need. This one uses Squirrel Love.


These feature the Baby Tiger and Baby Hippo.


Thanks for stopping by today.
