Tag Archives: die cutting

Hello!! Today is Thursday and I couldn’t be happier that tomorrow is Friday! My favorite day of the week! Both of the boys are feeling a little crummy. Runny noses and coughing. I’m hoping they feel better by tomorrow. I hate when they feel bad.

I don’t have much to share tonight. Besides work, I didn’t do much today.

With that said, I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects I’ve done within the last month or two. I don’t want to go picture overload. Just some of my favs I haven’t shared with you yet. This may not be Instagram, but I can have my own Throwback Thursday, right? Oh yea! Here we go!

I love chevron. I love teal. With those 2 items on one card it makes my heart happy.

Washi tape is my new best friend. I don’t know why I resisted it for so long. I absolutely love it. Like really, LOVE it! I think this was my first card using washi.

Remember when I said “I love washi!” Well I wasn’t lying. This is my favorite card. I love all the mixed colors and patterns. I gave this one to my brothers girlfriend for her birthday. It was a hard one to let go. I wanted to keep it forever!!

The inside is my favorite. I kinda went washi crazy, but I love the added color and pop it adds. I used my Silhouette Sketch Pens on the writing. I use those a lot. I like hand written sentiments, but I don’t love my handwriting. ย The sketch pens are real handy for me.

I mailed my thank you card to my hand therapist yesterday. I can’t wait for her to get it! I’m hoping she gets it tomorrow. That would be a great way to start her weekend!

Have a great Friday everyone! See you tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Man, It seems like I’ve been gone forever…believe me I have thought about posting a blog at least once a day, but I have been so busy! Besides working, homeschooling, doing things around the house, I have been busy using my Cameo! I absolutely love it. My goal is to do a card a day. I’m trying to get better and figure out exactly what I’m doing. Testing out what glue I like best, card stock, what settings I like to cut with. There is so much thought involved! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really enjoy it and I’m pretty sure we have been to Hobby Lobby twice in the last week. Which seems like no biggie unless you live an hour away from the closest one! Don’t tell my husband, but I already want/need to go back. I have figured out that buying the cheapest card stock is not the way to go. I learned my lesson there and need to upgrade. Do you have a certain brand or weight of paper you use? Any tips are welcome. I’m going to show you a few of my latest projects. All my designs have been purchased off the Silhouette Online Store with my free gift cards I received when I bought my machine. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

This is my very first card project with the Cameo. I really loved how they both turned out. I love cutting the image out and putting it all together. It’s like a puzzle! I never knew how much I would love card making. I have wanted to do it for so long, but never put in the time to sit down and actually do it. The Cameo makes it so much easier and my kids love watching it cut out the images. Atticus was watching me last night and said “Mom…You really love die cutting!” It was so sweet. I just love that little boy!

Besides the cards I have made a few wood signs. I love vinyl and if my husband would let me, I’d vinyl everything in this house!!

I love making the wood signs and they make such great gifts for people. Jeremy’s Aunt and Uncle are coming to visit us next weekend and they just moved into a new house, so I wanted to make them something as a little house-warming gift. I think they will love the bird design with their last name. I know I would! This was my favorite project of the week.

I hope you guys enjoy my pictures. As I type this blog all I can think about is making more stuff! Please comment below if you guys have card stock tips. I would love the comments and help! I will try my hardest to break away and blog more. ย See you all soon!!
