Row House - House Warming Gift


Friends of ours recently moved into their brand new home and thought this would make the perfect little house warming gift! Finally I had an excuse to make a row house from SVG Cuts Parkside Row SVG Kit! LOVE it!!!


I added a cloud from Bunny Hop SVG Kit to add my sentiment to using print n cut on the Cameo. The banner was simply made by cutting out triangles and stamping a letter on each pennant.



 How cool is that all lit up? SO realistic looking!


If you loved my Row House, you are going to love SVG Cuts latest Kit "Mistletoe Manor"

Here is a peek! Amazing right!!! Perfect for Christmas :)

3D Halloween Skull Treat Box/Luminary


Have you all seen Fleurette Blooms latest SVG Kit, Dia De Los Muertos? It is SO cool!
The 3D Skulls, the gorgeous flowers and the banner... love it all! For those of you that don't know about Dia De Los Meurtos or Day of the Dead, this holiday focuses on family and friends gathering  to pray for and remember those who have died. While we in North America celebrate Halloween, many other countries throughout the world celebrate this holiday on October 31 and November 1.


So today I want to share with my Halloween version, a 3D Skull Treat Box/Luminary. How cool is that, love how this file could be so versatile!


To the skull I added a few little cute spiders from here. The stitches I added come from the mouth of the one piece Skull Box from here.


Here it is all lit up, the perfect Halloween decoration! This Skull is also perfect for filling up with some Halloween treats and giving it away to your favorite little monster.


Hope you all enjoyed my 3D Halloween Skull Treat Box/Luminary. Maybe even inspired to make your own skulls for Halloween or Dia De Los Muertos!

Frozen Themed Birthday Cake and Card

Alright! Prepare yourself for some cuteness overload!!!

Today I am sharing with you the cutest Birthday cake I think I have made so far!!! I am super happy with how it turned out :)


I made this cake for my little Goddaughter Stella who celebrated her 5th Birthday this weekend! Happy Birthday Stella!

OK! How cute is Olaf!?!


I also incorporated my love for paper crafting into the cake. I don't think I could ever get fondant letters perfectly cut like that. When wet, the fondant is pretty sticky which acts like glue. Doing it with paper saved me tons of time too!


The snow flakes are also paper cut using my Silhouette Cameo. The files for the snowflakes come here.

This cake made up of 2, 10" rounds. Bottom layer is chocolate flavoured and the top is a vanilla cake. Entire cake was frosted with vanilla butter cream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.


Below is a side view.

Oh and the "ice" is just sugar shards.
So easy to make... just takes 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup corn syrup, and touch of food colouring.
Heat it up to melt on medium heat (simmer about 5 minutes), add your color (whisk together), then pour it onto a Silpat to harden. Once hardened crack away!


To coordinate with the cake I thought I would make the Birthday Girl a matching Frozen Card.
With a few minor alterations this card worked perfectly with the Frozen theme. It could totally be used as a birthday invite too! For more details on the card click HERE!


The Stamp I used comes from Craftin Desert Diva's - Simply Said.

And here is a closer look of the Frozen wonderland ;)


Hope you have enjoyed the "coolest" Frozen themed cake and coordinating card that I made!

21st Birthday Box Card


Hi Guys!

So this week my baby sister Catarina celebrated her 21st Birthday! I can't believe it. Feels like it was yesterday I was in the delivery room with my mom!!! Yes I was, and was also the first person to see her... I was 17 when she was born and that experience was the reason I went into Nursing school! 

So today I want to share with you the cute birthday box card I made her. The files come from Fleurette Bloom's Celebrations SVG Kit. I love that the kit includes various elements that you can use and play with.


Instead of adding a cake, I thought it would be cute to make the 21 as a candle.


The stamp comes from Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations.
The bright paper I used comes from Doodlebug Designs Springtime paper pad.
Love this collection!


Here is a pic of me and my baby sister. 
This photo was taken a few weeks ago at our cousin's wedding. 
Happy Birthday Cat! Love you :)


Hope you enjoyed my post today and got to know me a little more!
