Hi everyone! After our last card we made together, Masculine Birthday Card, I noticed all the scraps I had left sitting right there challenging me to make another card using them. Well, here is what I did with them:

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a couple of graduation cards I made for my nieces. I did use an image found in the Silhouette online store, grad cap flourish id # 9644. This is a cut image that I turned into a print and cut. I wanted to create cards that used their school colors.
To see more click the video below or click here:
I used the color fill features to change the caps to black and red. The flourishes I used the gradient gray and changed the dots to black. The font for “congratulations” is Jenna Sue and the “Class of” is Edwardian Script ITC, the numerals are “aerial”. I played around with the placements within a 4 X 5.25 space.
Here is how the finished card bases looked in Silhouette:
Once I was happy with the placement and colors I used the silhouette to print the two on one sheet of card stock and used my paper trimmer to trim down the card front as close to the image with a small order around it. I then placed the card front on the pattern paper and trimmed around the card front living a minimal border and did the same for the colored card stock that matted the pattern paper and adhered them all to the black card base.
The red card I placed a black flat back pearl on the top of cap for the button and applied Frosted Lace stickles on the tassel. Over the numbers I applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents and to the left I had a diploma brad that I flattened the prongs out and placed a few glue dots along the back and applied to the card base for an extra touch.
The black card I did bling up a bit. I placed an iridescent rhinestone to the top of the cap for the button and applied Forsted Lace Stickles to the tassel and to the numbers. I also placed small rhinestones over the black dots along the flourishes and in a couple of other places scattered around and also placed a diploma brad to the lower left of the card. I also added a few white dash lines around the cap just to give a little dimension to the cap.
A closer look at each card:

Hi everyone! So a few weeks ago we looked at my daughter’s birthday party invite and the card I made for her. Fast forward way too long and here is a recap of the party decor. She loved her yellow and purple colors and had a great time.
Here’s a look into the Party:
I covered the island with a yellow plastic tablecloth and then cut a purple plastic tablecloth down to make a runner and placed it on top of the yellow. I picked them both up at the Dollar Tree. From the left over pieces I covered our table.
The cake pops used the left over cake that I had and I used Betty Crocker’s Cream Cheese Icing to bind the cake to make the cake pop balls. I then dipped them in Wilton’s candy coating disks that you can pick up at craft or cake decor places. I placed them in a Yellow container found at the Dollar Tree. Inside the white tissue paper is a foam rectangle used in flower arrangements. This helped to hold the cake pops.
I used the left over table cloths here and I had a few extra balloons that I made into a center piece. I also hung a tissue paper pom-pom from the light fixture. I made several of them that you see in various places. They are made with yellow and purple tissue paper found at the Dollar Tree. You can see how to make them here.
A look the spread. We had Cake, cupcakes, cake pops, pineapple and grapes ( yellow and purple), chips and ranch dip, pickles, and a deli sandwich spread along with ice cream and rainbow sherbet.
Yellow and purple plates, napkins, forks, spoons and cups… all from, you guessed it, the Dollar Tree. I served, soft drinks, water, strawberry lemonade and plain lemonade to drink.
The cake is iced in an ombre effect darkest on the bottom to a lighter yellow on top in many rosettes that cover the cakes. You can see how to do this here.
I made the balloon flowers from this tutorial. Man my fingers were sore from making these.
Her little purple and yellow top, white leggings and Jelly sandals all came from Wal-Mart.
Little Miss Sunshine:
So there you have it. Simple and fairly inexpensive. She loved it and everyone enjoyed their time at the party. Hope you enjoyed a peek into the day.
If you have any questions please ask! I’ll see you in the next post!
Hi everyone! Here is the birthday card I created that coordinates with the birthday party invites from last week. As you will see it does look very similar but with a few changes. I did use the Silhouette Cameo and the print and cut feature for this card. You can refer back to this post for even more info on how to create these images.

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share the birthday party invitations I’m making to send out for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. I wanted a simple invite with no added dimension so I turned to the Silhouette software to help me out. I used several images that were part of the free downloads when you purchased the Cameo along with using the pattern fill and color fill options. I’m pleased with how it turned out, if you want to see more on this card then click the video below:
Hi everyone! I am so glad to be sharing this post with you. If you remember way back to last year when I posted a list of projects I wanted to complete in 2012… remember? Well, as you know I didn’t do too hot in attacking that list but alas, today I can mark off one of them, the mixed media project. In my last Hobby Lobby haul I shared on YouTube I had purchased a pendant blank, I took that pendent and created this:

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made for my Aunt who is turning 75 this weekend. I was going to make her a card that would match the gift bag I purchased but scraped that whole idea when going through my paper. I LOVE this paper collection. I have used it many times before, when seeing the sewing machine I knew that I had to make her card using it. So there was no die cutting used in this card tutorial… pretty cool huh?

Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a few items I picked up this week at my local Hobby Lobby Store. This week they had their paper pads 50% off! After watching a great YouTuber, Yoliebean, share her haul I HAD to go. Well, I needed to go for more Kraft card stock so her items just gave me the push I needed to go. I did include two items I picked up the last time I was at HL at the end of the video so it’s a semi-collective haul. I hope you enjoy watching the video.
