Finally Baby Arrived Turtle Card | SVGCuts Files

A quick blog post for you all tonight, unlike the slowpoke turtle in the card I'm sharing with you ;)

We have been waiting patiently for our newest family member. A little overdue, but finally my cousin gave birth yesterday to the cutest little guy! Welcome to the family Andre!

So I thought this card was perfect for the occasion.
Sweet and simple! Very quick to make :)

Illuminated 3D Paper I Love U Sign | SVGCuts Files

I just realized that two years ago today was my first blog post EVER! Hard to believe how far I've come... for someone technically challenged it makes me excited about all that I have learned and done these last few years! Yay me!!! Anyways, enough about me lets get to the post ;)

I'm really excited to share with you my latest SVGCuts DT creation! Inspired by the recent marquee craze, I thought I would try my hand at creating a Valentine "I Love U" sign! This project makes a great Valentine decor piece or a unique gift idea!

For complete instruction on how I created this project make sure you click HERE.

Illuminated 3D Paper I Love U Sign | SVGCuts Files

I love it when something I had envisioned actually turned out as I planned. It was actually quite easy and quick to put together too :)

Illuminated 3D Paper I Love U Sign | SVGCuts Files

Here is what it looks like when the room lights are turned off, and the LED lights are turned on.
 Love how it looks in the dark. Ooooo, Aaahhhh!

Illuminated 3D Paper I Love U Sign | SVGCuts Files

To create this look, I used a battery operated string of LED lights and added a hole to the back panel and strung them through! Clever right?! The coolest part, is that this battery pack has a built-in timer that turns on every 24 hours and stays lit for 6 hours! I don't even have to touch it!!! A pleasant bonus as I found them at the dollar store...  Amazeballs, right?!

If you want to, the battery pack could easily be attached to the back and then the sign could be hung on the wall!

I hope you've enjoyed this project, maybe even inspired you to create your own LOVE or any other WORD sign for that matter!

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.

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 :) 

Foxy Valentine's Day Paper Mailbox | SVGCuts Files

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

Foxy Valentine's Day Paper Mailbox | SVGCuts Files

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!

Foxy Valentine's Day Paper Mailbox | SVGCuts Files

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

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

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!

The top of the tree is adorned with a bright star that lights up with a flick of a switch. The tea light just pokes through the center of the star to add a little twinkle!

Personalized Paper Christmas Ball Ornaments for the Teachers | SVGCuts Files

I can't believe there are only a few more days of school left before the holidays begin!

Every year I like to treat the teachers with something homemade and unique. This year I decided to make them an ornament... Yes, I know not very original but when it's made and personalized by your own hands... it is! 

Super cute and simple, right? Something a teacher can treasure for many years and hopefully they will think about the child that gave it to them!

Personalized Paper Christmas Ball Ornaments for the Teachers | SVGCuts Files

For the ornaments I selected school themed papers from DCWV's Grade School Stack.  

Here are 3 of the ornaments I made. I actually made 5 in total but that was just much to squeeze into one photo, lol!

Personalized Paper Christmas Ball Ornaments for the Teachers | SVGCuts Files

Just in case you are  interested, here is the list of files you will need to recreate one of these gifts:

(names were done using the Print and Cut feature of the Silhouette)
Box - Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit (altered by adding and window to the front)
Poinsettias - 3D Wintergreens SVG Kit
All cut on the Silhouette Cameo using SSDE

I resized the box so that the ornament would fit perfectly inside it :)

TIP: Shred some green and red card stock for the bottom of the box... this will keep the ornament from rolling around and it will add a little extra to the presentation!

Personalized Paper Christmas Ball Ornaments for the Teachers | SVGCuts Files

The card stock I used for the boxes comes from Heidi Swapp's Believe Paper Pad. I really like her papers!

DIY Christmas Labels on the Silhouette with Fleurette Bloom Designs | Ink On 3 Files

My favorite projects are quick and useful! Today I want to walk you through how to make your own Christmas labels using Fleurette Bloom files. Once you know-how, you'll be making labels for everything :) 


DIY Christmas Labels on the Silhouette with Fleurette Bloom Designs | Ink On 3 Files

For this project I used:

Avery Sticker Project Paper (Silhouette Brand Printable Sticker paper is also available, but did not have any on hand)
Silhouette Cameo with SSDE

Instructions:
  1. The first thing you will need to do is select the PNG images and the SVG files you want to use.
  2. Open them up onto your workspace.
  3. With the SVG's you have selected to use as labels, click on each SVG and change the cut style to "cut". 
  4. Group one PNG design with one SVG file. (Play with the PNG sizes until you like the look and placement on each label). 
  5. I chose to include "to: and a from:" If you do that ensure you change the cut style setting on the font to "no cut". Copy and paste it into each label and group them.
  6. I don't like to waste paper, so once my labels were created I tried to fit as many as possible on to one sheet. You will notice I changed some of them in size to fit more! Variety in sizes is good to have because all gifts come in different sizes too ;)

Since I had set my line color to transparent, it was hard to visually see the labels when working on the white workspace. To solve for this I just worked on the side of my workspace (see image below) You could also in the Page setting, set it to reveal your cutting mat.

DIY Christmas Labels on the Silhouette with Fleurette Bloom Designs | Ink On 3 Files
  • Slide the labels back onto your workspace. Turn on the cut line setting and align your shapes within your registration marks. Make sure that the only cut lines you see are only on the edges of the labels.

  • Now you are ready to send it to the printer.
  • Before cutting out your shapes, change the pressure setting on your cutting machine, I set my pressure setting to 2. This is just enough to cut through the top layer leaving the backing intact. 
That's it! Easy right!?

Here is a little treat box I made with one of the labels I cut out! Since you already know who the gift is from you could also have the names already printed on there too :)

I hope you find this tutorial useful! This was so easy and quick to do on the Silhouette, that I have so many ideas for other labels I want to make now! If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them for you :)

Christmas Paper Cake Floral Toppers | Cake a la SVGCuts | DIY Cakes

I am SOOOOO super excited today to be sharing with you my first guest post for SVGCuts, WHOOP, WHOOP! If I could do a backflip I would, lol ;) 

If you didn't know it before, you should know now that I LOVE SVG Cuts and have been a huge fan since finding them back in 2011! In fact they were one of the reasons I started blogging. I have always loved to craft and after making some of the coolest things out of paper with their files, I was hooked and I knew I had to share it with others!

So for this project I thought it would be awesome to mash up two of my favorite crafts... Paper and cake decorating! Well, what do you think of my Christmas Cake a la SVG Cuts? It almost looks too good to eat doesn't it?!

Please check out my guest post on the SVGCuts blog for complete instructions :)

Christmas Paper Cake Floral Toppers | Cake a la SVGCuts | DIY Cakes

Christmas Paper Cake Floral Toppers | Cake a la SVGCuts | DIY Cakes
I would have never been able to create these gorgeous flowers out of fondant, but paper... piece of cake, haha!

When I was a little girl, the kids in the family would always fight over the sugar flowers on the cake. Did anyone else do that? Maybe we were just weird?

I'm sure if you make some like these out of paper, the moms might have to fight the kids for them, lol!

If any of you have ever made a fondant flower, you will know how time-consuming and difficult it can be. Even when they are done they can be quite fragile. That's why you pay cake decorators the big bucks! But why pay them when you can do it yourself?! If you already are a paper crafter all you need now is a cake! If you can't make a fondant cake, don't worry bake your favorite cake and sprinkle some icing sugar over it, or even easier buy one and just embellish it!

Just think of the cakes you could make using paper toppers, the possibilities are endless!

Christmas Paper Cake Floral Toppers | Cake a la SVGCuts | DIY Cakes

Make the flowers like you would for any other project. Then all you have to do is hot glue them to the end of a toothpick or a skewer. By doing this, you elevate the flowers and protect the papers from any grease absorption that may happen when using paper. See the image below.

Here's what the cake looks like from the side...
