Bride to Be Free - Silhouette .studio file


Hello Everyone!

Today I have a FREE Silhouette .studio file to share with you all. That means it is only Silhouette machine compatible. Sorry don't have an SVG for it! But, if you like... watch my video HERE as I explain how to I created it and you may be able to do something similar as well.

As you can see this is for a Bride To Be Wedding Shower Cake topper that I recently made for some one and since I know how expensive these events can get, I thought I would share it with all the DIYers out there for FREE!



All I ask before you download... 
is to read and follow my free files RULES!
  1. If you choose to download all I ask is you become a follower. (Any social media link to the right of this pg would be appreciated)
  2. Note my files are for personal use only! (Personal use means... only for you to use (no trading, or sharing of my files... let me do that!) 
  3. If you want to share, send your friends over to my blog for the download. 
  4. I'm OK with people sharing my files on their own sites as long as there is a direct link back to this blog...Please give credit where credit is due! (a message to me would also be appreciated)

So here you go, ENJOY!
Bride To Be Cake Topper Silhouette .studio file

TIPS:

  • Make sure you avoid using sparklers or candles nearby as it is paper and totally flammable! 
  • If you are using this on top of buttercream icing (or any other moist type icing) insert the topper just before revealing the cake as paper can absorb any grease that the icing may contain, or just have it barely touch the top of the cake. I have used these toppers on fondant covered cakes, and there has been no grease transfer.


If you create one of these Cake toppers I would love to see how they look on your cake.
Share them on my FB page, tag me on Instagram or just email me your photos :)
Always fun to see what you do with them!


Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

DIY Customized Foam Core Shelving for Markers


Hi guys,
Today I'm getting organized with you all!

Since discovering the world of stamping and card making I have been looking for ways to neatly organize my markers, but couldn't find anything that really worked for my space. So as a DIY'er, I thought I could come up with something that worked for me. And, I absolutely LOVE the results and had to share it with you all of course.

This shelving/storage unit measures ~ 8 inches high, 16 inches wide and has a depth of 5.5 inches.
Super easy and inexpensive to make!

You could use the same principles I used in creating this one and customize it for your space. Organize your stamp blocks and ink pads, washi tapes, ribbon... the possibilities are endless!


For those of you that want the written instructions for this unit,

For those that like visual instructions, I have also created a process video.

Hope this inspires you to create the perfect organizational storage unit for your crafty space.

Magical Day Birthday Card


Hey Everyone!

Today I want to share with you this really fun birthday card I made for my God Daughter. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I painted this little beauty on our Summer vacation, and recently posted a video clip on cutting it out using the Silhouette Pixscan mat. I knew she would come in handy for a future card and so here is her debut ;)

I really love how this card turned out and thought it was perfect for a little girls birthday!


Here is a closer look at the cutest little unicorn! 
I'm in LOVE with my Zig Clean Color Markers.


I really like making interactive cards, especially for kids and so I added a mini action wobbles to the Unicorn.

...and here is the magical unicorn in action!



I hope this fun interactive Magical Day Birthday Card has inspired you today.
For those of you interested I have a list of all the products I used below. 
If you have any questions about it feel free to ask in the comments below :)

My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest


Hi All!

Today I want to share with you my entries for the My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest - 2016!

I almost missed the boat on this one, as I just heard about the contest last week! Wish I had more time to come up with another card (three is the maximum you can enter). But I guess two will have to do!
Well... what do you think of my first card?


How cute is this little guy!? 
I love how using a clear acetate on the bottom of the card makes it really look like a speech bubble ;)

I will link a list of the supplies I used below this post, but here is a list of the specific Spectrum Noir Markers I used (FS3, FS6, TN3, TN5, IG1 and the Blender).

Here is what the inside looks like.


I used adhesive black foam for my letters to add some texture and dimension.


It's clean, it's simple, it's fun... and that's what I was going for. I'm pretty happy with it since I feel like I'm still a newbie at this whole card making craft! Plus, it was easy enough that I'm going to make a few more to have on hand for birthday's that I have coming up soon!

And onto my second card...
In contrast to the first card this one is a lot darker and actually a little gloomy.


 Here is a close up of the glitter fun foam clouds and the distressed sky.


It gets a bit lighter and hopeful on the inside of the card. 

I think this is the perfect card this card to brighten up someone's day!


Hope you've enjoyed my entries to My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest.  Wish me luck, and if anyone one out there still has time today you should enter as well or at least take a peek at some of the entries (they are AMAZING) and very inspirational!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
