Baby Shower Card

And for today's project, I wanted to show you this card I made for my friend's baby shower. It is by Lori Whitlock. It was so easy! But since I ran out of baby blue paper, I opted to cut some designer paper instead of the polka dotted background.

Cutting and Altering Wood Sign with Vinyl

My Daughter had a birthday party yesterday and I knew the birthday girl was artsy like us and I thought it would be nice to give her something that she could use for art and something personalized using vinyl.

This was such an easy project, I just typed in the name in the studio (I used the Wizards Magic font) and cut it after measuring the chalkboard sign I found at Hobby Lobby.

Here is my blank sign:

Easter Egg Basket

Hello my friends! Today I am going to show you a cute box I made using Kelleigh Ratzlaff's templates. Let me tell you that her templates are so easy to fold and put together, Kelleigh's templates come in SVGs that I can open with the designer edition of the studio and DXF files that you can open even if you don't have the upgraded version (DE)

Cameo Creations Challenge #4

Welcome to this week's post! I am sorry I am late but I was on a 10 day vacation to New York City and didn't have time to finish my card before we left. New York was fabulous and it has redeemed itself from my previous (disastrous) experiences, lol. We had so much fun visiting my BFF from High School and meeting her one year old daughter, she is so darling! Everything in New York was just perfect! And since I had two and a half days to "relax" before heading home, I was ready to get to my computer and work with my cameo. OMG, I missed it so much!

Since these days were so much fun, I couldn't remember how to color digi stamps on the studio, so I went to Monica's Blog to get a good refresher on how to do so and you can watch this cool and detailed instructional video made by Monica, she rocks!

And for this challenge we had to create a square card using a digital stamp and buttons.

Cameo Creations Challenge #3

Is that time again! Cameo Creations Challenge is here. This time you will have to create a Saint Patrick's Day themed home decoration and submit the link to your picture or blog to Monica's Creative Madness blog. The challenge ends midnight March 15th PST

For this challenge I had planned to work with vinyl, I have tons of it in my inventory and I need to use it all before I buy more colors. Working with vinyl is seriously way easier than paper crafting lol. It took me less than 30 minutes to finish this project and most of the time was consumed blow drying the paint on my frame.

I didn't have a picture frame at home but I had my eyes set on this frame at Michael's that comes already primed and you can use enamel paint on it. It was so easy to paint and since it is primed I only needed two coats (I used a foam brush, not smart. I should have used a brush) I have tried to find a link for you but couldn't  find it, just ask at Michael's for the plastic unfinished craft frame.

Here is where I started to put the first coat of paint and the color of paint I used
