Piece of Cake Treat Box and Card | SVG Cuts

Today I want to share with you a little gift box  I made for one of my girlfriends. We've been friends since childhood... come to think of it, I was about my daughter's age when we first met... Over 30 years ago! Time flies Suzie... and yes we are on the slippery slope to 40! C'est la Vie, and what a wonderful life it is :)

3D Paper Truck Treat Box | SVGCuts

Happy Weekend!

Yeah, it's Friday!!! I'm not sure why I sound so excited? I have to work this weekend... 2, 12 hour shifts at the hospital... whaaaaahhh! :(  Maybe its because I got so much accomplished this week! I can't wait to share it all!

This week, my Father in law Leo celebrated his birthday! So I thought I should make him a little gift box for the kids to give him. He owns an old red truck that my kids love to ride around in, so I thought this would be perfect!





Isn't adorable!? Such a fun file! This file comes from SVGCuts  RYAN'S PLAYDATE SVG KIT, and was cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Perfect for a little guy too!

Thanks for visiting!

SVG Paper Drum Treat Box Birthday Gift | SVGCuts

Happy Tuesday everyone!

We've been so crazy busy lately! Birthdays, events, work, school, soccer, and the weather is finally nice I need to get some yard work done. There just doesn't seem to be enough time... oh well, one thing at a time!

I wanted to share this with you all last week when I finished this but never had the chance to post it until today. So here is a drum I made for a very fun 5 years old. He, like his Daddy, love the drums, so I thought this would be perfect for him. Happy Birthday, Antonio, hope you had a fun-filled day!

The drum file comes from SVG cuts SANTA'S VISIT SVG KIT. I used black card stock for the drum base and embellished it with tin foil tape to give it the chrome look. 


I laid out the tape on the silhouette mat and cut the foil with my Cameo.

For some texture, I ran the accent drum pieces through the Cuttlebug


Here is a closer look.

3D Paper Cupcake Treat Boxes | SVGCuts


Hello everyone!!!

Happy Friday! I'm just getting over the flu bug :( .... but feeling much better today :)

There are so many birthdays for us this month... May seems like it's extra busy! So I thought instead of making cards for some of our friends I would just give them a 3D cupcake! These files come from SVGCuts  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU SVG KIT and the flower from AMELIE'S ACCESSORIES SVG KIT, cut on the Silhouette Cameo.

Here is the cupcake I made for my friend Suzie. LOVE how it turned out! Black and white, classy, clean look, can't really go wrong with the color combination!

DIY Personalized Word Art Paintings


It's my very good friend's birthday today, which also happens to be my oldest friend as well. We have been friends since 1983... Whoa, that's almost 30 years! Happy Birthday Suzie!!!

So for Suzie's birthday, I thought I would surprise her with one of my paintings. For a while, I used to sell them on my Etsy store, but now I just make them for friends and family. Suzie had mentioned she would like me to paint some word art for her a while ago. I normally would ask her for a whole bunch of words that she would like that described her and her family. I'll make her subway art painting for next time when I know what words she would like. But, since I wanted it to be a surprise I thought instead of making the typical subway art type painting, I would make it look like a word search. The circled words would be her family names. I love how it turned out. I hope she will too!

Here is how I make my word art paintings. I've seen many different ways of doing this on Pinterest, so I thought I would share how I make mine.

The first thing you want to do is decide on your words. I use my Silhouette to out my word, fonts, layout. I then cut out my letters. Instead of using vinyl which is expensive and you are just going to discard it, I use contact paper. I then remove the letters from the contact paper leaving behind the negative of the letters.


Next, prepare the canvas. For this project, I chose a 16X20 frame. I like to wet down the canvas first just with water and roll it on with a foam roller.


Now it's time to give your canvas some color. I used acrylic paints. Give the canvas at least 2 coats of color.


Once the canvas is dry remove the backing on the contact paper and as straight as possible lay it on your canvas. Try to smooth it out as much as possible.


Time to start painting in your words. For this painting, I used a foam brush and dabbed the paint on a little at a time. In the past, I have just a foam roller to roll it on. (If the contact paper isn't very tacky, it's probably better not to use a roller, or the paint might bleed under your stencil)


This is what it looked like prior to the big reveal.


For this painting, I just freehanded the circled words.


Once all the paint has dried I give the painting a protective clear coating with a paint sealer. 

Here are a few more of the paintings I have made in the past for myself, friends and family. Enjoy!
