Fresh Bread Bag

I have told you ho much I enjoy using my cameo for all kinds of crafts around the house, this project is in the list of my favorite projects ever.

 For some reason I have been waking up around 2:30-3:30 am every.darn.day! Maybe it is my mommy clock still out of schedule because of my son (we are still nursing, 15 months and he seems to not be done yet lol) and I decided to put my sleepless nights to good use, by pinteresting hahaha!!! But I came across great stuff, like baking your own bread.

Cake Doily

I loooove using my cameo besides paper crafting. It is my way of showing my husband (who gets grumpy when I paper craft lol) that buying my cameo was totally worth it!

Last week was my friend's birthday and I wanted to make something special for him and his son (his birthday too) so I decided to bake, yes you read that right! BAKE! lol, a cake. I have an awesome, fool proof, no fuss recipe from Meaningful Mama. Check it out, you won't be disappointed AT.ALL. because it tastes so homemade nobody will ever be able to tell it came from a box lol.

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons - Guest Designer

I am so happy I had I chance to create with one of my favorite designer's SVG and graphic files, Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! If you are my follower, I am sure you have seen the projects I have made using their files before and I applied as soon as I read they were calling for Guest Designers on their Facebook group and blog.

For this opportunity, I wanted to use the Home Sweet Home cutting files because I my dear friend's son and fiancee just purchased their first home and I wanted to make something special for them. Have you seen those card boxes that are the "it" now? There are many in the silhouette store but I can show you a super easy tutorial video to make it, even if you don't have a silhouette cameo or any other cutting machine.

Here is my card:

Print and Cut Cards

One of the many things I love about my Cameo is the print and cut feature, I needed to make some cards to keep handy in case we need one.

Here are some cards I made this past weekend.

Valentine's Day Crafts, Cutting Felt (and fabric) - Part 2

Well, I failed it! I tried to cut the thick felt from Joann's and I think it is too thick for our machine to handle. Since I wasn't sure if my felt cut was going to be a good one, I decided to use the wonder under to cut fabric (cotton) and it was a beautiful success! Let me show you some pictures.

I first prepared my materials. slightly iron the wonder under on the back of the felt/fabric.

Cutting Felt with Silhouette Cameo - Part 1

I am baaack!!! Our vacation time is over, we left sunny Lima, Peru and came back to cold and grey Atlanta! I am happy to sleep in my own bed but not so happy about winter weather, I am not a winter person, it depresses me to no end! At least we were sitting by the pool the day Atlanta saw Snow Apocalypse happen. LOL

Stationery Set

My friend Cyndi asked me to make some thank you cards for her sister, when I was finished I knew my cards were missing something and then I remembered I bought this Stationery box from the Silhouette Store and I decided to make one using the colors Cyndi's sister likes:

Christmas Cards

Every year I like to send cards to our friends and family. We don't have many relatives (alive) in the States and with shipping costs it has been harder to mail a simple letter or card to my family in Peru. This year I decided to just downgrade and send a handful of truly handmade cards to the people I know will cherish and save them. The rest are just getting a digital picture of my kids ha!
