Have you seen the latest Vintage Valentine SVG Cuts Kit? If you haven't, you must... it is awesome!!! I couldn't wait to make the guitar that Mary created! Super cute and so easy to put it together :)

This guitar makes the perfect gift box for the music lover in your life.. a great Valentine's treat too!

Instead of twine I used 22 gauge metal wire for my guitar strings. It took a little effort but I am really happy with the results :)

To create this project you will need:

Card stock
Wire
Embellishments
Silhouette Cameo with the SSDE

I used the Print and Cut feature of the Silhouette Cameo to add the roses to the front panel of my guitar.

3D Paper Floral Centerpiece | Ink On 3 Files

Today I want to share with you my latest Fleurette Bloom Design Team Project "3D Paper Floral Centerpiece."  Aren't those flowers GORGEOUS?! Hard to believe that they are made out of paper!

Have you ever thought of paper floral arrangements as centerpieces for your next event? Why not!?! Yes, they are a little more work but so worth it! They are less expensive to make than buying real flowers, they will last you forever, and are just as beautiful! Plus, your guests will be amazed that you made them too :)

3D Paper Floral Centerpiece | Ink On 3 Files

To make this beautiful 3D Paper Floral Centerpiece you will need SVG files from Fleurette Bloom's Valentine Be Mine 3D SVG Kit and Lush Flowers 3D SVG Collection

Other supplies I used to create this include:

Card stock
Inks
Hot glue and a glue gun
Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive
Decorative Burlap Ribbon
Toothpicks
2" Styrofoam ball 
Decorative green moss

Cut on the Silhouette Cameo with SSDE

The coolest part is that the Flower Pot (modified coffee mug) opens up to reveal a little surprise! 

 This arrangement would also make a great gift for someone. Think Valentine's Day, Mothers's Day, and upcoming Friend's Birthday... the possibilities go on and on! Also, the treats you fill the base with will act as a weight, keeping it from tipping over! If you chose to make it for yourself just fill the base with stones, beans, whatever you have handy will work ;)

I absolutely LOVE how this 3D Paper Floral Centerpiece turned out!!! I hope you love it too! If you do make this project make sure you share it on Fleurette Blooms Facebook Page :)

Harley Davidson / Ferrari 40th Birthday Cake | DIY Cakes

This weekend I had the privilege to make a Harley Davidson/Ferrari 40th birthday cake for a really close friend of ours. Happy Birthday Victor!

Anyone who knows Victor knows he loves his Harley and loves Ferrari! 
I actually wasn't too sure how they were going to come together, but I have to say it is one of my favorite cakes. So happy with how it turned out!

Harley Davidson / Ferrari 40th Birthday Cake | DIY Cakes


Top layer - Vanilla flavored - baked in two 6 inch round

Bottom layer - Chocolate flavored - baked in a 10 inch round pan
The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream icing and covered with fondant.

The hardest part of this cake was hand cutting out the Harley and Ferrari logos. So challenging, learned so much but so pleased with the results :)

Foxy Valentine's Day Paper Mailbox | SVGCuts Files


Are you all in Valentine's mood yet? I sure am ;)

Today I want to share with you a really quick and super cute Foxy Mailbox I made using the fox from Hugs and Kisses SVG Cuts Kit! Quick, simple, and useful are my favorite kinds of projects! I know my daughter will love this and it will be the perfect place for her to store all her Valentine's day cards! Now I have to make one for my son, a not so girly fox... I don't think he would appreciate pink too much :) 

For exact instructions and sizing click HERE.

Just LOVE her! This is one Foxy Fox!!!

The sentiment on her heart-shaped belly was created on the Silhouette Cameo with the Print n Cut feature. I love how you can create your own phrases on the Silhouette! I thought I'd incorporate "Fox Say" from the popular hit song "What does a Fox Say?" in my phrase. Arhhhh, now I have that song stuck in my head, lol!

Look at her, with her head down... ready for a nap, too CUTE ;)

Here are the SVG files you will need for the project:

Fox (modified by using the knife tool in the SSDE) and Hearts - Hugs And Kisses SVG Kit 


I hope this has inspired you to create some of your own cute Mailboxes. The box is also big enough to fill with treats and give as a gift! I think it would make a great Valentine's Day Teachers gift too!

Really LOVE how this card came together... the tulle on the Brides Dress and veil, and the umbrella are my favorites :)

I used the Print n Cut on the Silhouette Cameo to create the banner and the Sentiment on the inside of the card. With Print n Cut you can make your cards as personal as you like! No more worrying about messy writing or making mistakes. All you really have to do is sign your name!
