Silhouette Cameo, Merry Christmas.

I love the look of the Merry Christmas Die that is available from Memory Box  but I wanted to be able to make them in various sizes. So I made my own cutting files for my Cameo. the poinsettas are a cut file which I put through my crimper to give them some texture.
the third card is a simple cut and stick, this is on the Silhouette web site.
Thanks for looking.

Stampin Up Cards Festive Flurry

Todays cards are using the Festive Flurry Snowflake stamps and matching dies. I love these! Especially when you use glitter stickles on the snowflakes. they really sparkle.
I stuck my design paper on the inside and outside of ,my 8x8 card. I then die cut an aperture through the front of the card using my ebosser and spellbinders circle dies. I cut a frame using 2 spellbinders circle dies.Stuck this to the front of the card. Layered the snowflakes. The sentiment is from a set of clear stamps by Paula Pascal.
The next card is a 7x5 inch card.
I havde matted and layered SU card and papers and made up another dimentional snowflake.
Thank you for looking.

This set of stamps and dies are available through me, from Stampin Up.

I LOVE this set from Craftworkcards. I ordered my set from Create and Craft and couldnt wait to play. Out came the stickles and pearls and away I went. I made 9 cards in one afternoon. Im looking forward to having another play with them this week too.
Hope you have all kept safe these last few hours. Not too much damage here, just a couple of fence panels smashed.

what Have I been up to?

Well I have been making things to sell at the grandchildrens school christmas Fair. My daughter asked me if I would help as she is on the school fundraising committee.
So first thing I did was to print out 120 cards to colour in, putting them into a bag, 4 cards and envelopes and a packed of pencils. As the children go into the Fair on the Friday, they like to have cheap as chips stuff for the children to buy. The cards are downloaded from Activity Village. A great resource for anything educational and crafty.
My Cameo has been busy too but I have to finish this item off. So watch this space.

Mr & Mrs and New Home

Todays cards are cut on my Cameo. I typed the letters on 2 lines on the computer, in Studio, put a box around them then ungrouped. I was able then to move each letter to overlap, with the O on Home, rotated at 45%. Put a box around them again once I was happy with my layout. Right clicked, Weld, and the lines that overlapped disappeared. There you have it. a Goup of Letters. the best fonts I found to use, are ones with the sticky out bits.
I have done a file as well for Noel. As I have made these files myself, Im happy to share. Just pm me.
well thanks for looking.

I cut the moustaches on Cleo Cameo. There are 4 to this cutting file but the 4th one is very fine and Im terrible with glue and anything sticky on small items. So left it at 3 and used a Kanban sentiment to finish it off. The card blank is 7x5 inches.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Backing papers are Pink Petticoat.
The Paisley paper if from a Pad. As is the dresses, which I paper pieced.
The Tulle I ordered from China, at £2.49 for a roll, as it was so cheap I ordered 5 colours and Im going to order other colours soon.
Prima flowers.
Sentiment, computer generated, Scriptina.

Playing with my Cameo

My grandson Finn  who is 4, will be 5 in September and he loves football. I was lucky enough to go and see him learning and playing today. He is so good that he is in the group of 6 year olds. He runs rings around them too. :)  I bought the football file from Silhouette America and enlarged it to fit an 8x8 card. The leters and number are just computer generated, cut and then I right clicked and used the offset to make the background for them.
I am loving this machine! Lots to learn yet though.
Anyway, thanks for looking.

First Cameo Card

Todays carda is a request from my daughter, to make a New Home card for a horse riding friend.
So I bought this file from Silhouette as my first Make with Cleo my NEW Cameo. She arrived at the end of last week and although I cut a few bits like tags etc to get the hang of her, she has been waiting patiently for me to plug her in again.
I am busy sorting through my craft stash and trying to reduce it, so that I can actually decorate my bedroom. Not much reducing going on, in fact the only thing thrown away is my clothes! LOL Its looking a bit tidier though.
Better get back to it. See you soon.

Pretty In Pink at Kraftyhands Blog Challenge.

This month on Kraftyhands Blog Challenge, we ask you to make a "Pretty in Pink" card or project.
For my card I have used and 8x8 card blank. I used the Floral Fantasia CD, available in the KH online shop or at a Craft Fair near you.
Printed on Matt photo paper, the colours are really beautiful. I had to cut the main panel down to fit my card as the design is really for an A5 card. So just a bit trimmed off each side made a beautiful topper. This comes with decoupage as well, although I didnt get that far as I was behind getting this ready for the challenge. they last couple of weeks have been really busy.
Well enough chatter, I hope we see your creations on KH blog challenge this month.
The top 3 will win a blinkie for their blog and if you use Kraftyands CDs or stamps or toppers on your card, you will be in with a chance of winning a £20 voucher to spend in the shop.
See you soon.
