Clover Box and Little Girl Cards - Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Designs

Hi there! Today I wanted to show you two super duper cute templates part of Kelleigh Ratzlaff's designs. A Clover Box and a set of Baby Cards.

First, the clover box:

This was so easy to put together and decorate, I had so much fun playing with it and I am sure you will too.I love that Kelleigh's templates require very little adhesive and a few folds to get the final design beautifully ready to decorate. The butterfly and rosette files are from the silhouette store, I made an offset of the butterfly at 0.75 and cut it on a piece of leftover acetate I had from a stamp set I got in my stash (see, a frugal way to get the most out of your crafting supplies)

Football Cards and More

WOW, it feels like it has been forever since I last played with my cameo but the cable FINALLY came in and I was able to play some on Wednesday, I rested yesterday because we had a busy, busy day at the doctor's office and running errands but everything is OK and it is time to post what I have created so far.

The Cameo Creations blog hop was Fall/Football themed and these are the cards I had ready to go but couldn't cut because of the broken power cord.

The first card I made was this football helmet card, I used Pretty Paper Graphics cut file and it was so easy to put together. I made a mirrored copy of the helmet base, lined it up with the other side and welded the shaped together. If  you are doing this for the first time, I would recommend you to show the grid on your mat just to make sure the shapes are aligned and they will close evenly.

Blog Hop - Cameo Creations Fall Theme

Hello Everybody!

Today is Blog Hop day for the Cameo Creations DT, come join us and enter your projects for a chance to win awesome prizes.

I have some good and bad news for you. Good news: Our vacation and 10th Wedding Anniversary/Renewal of vows was fantastic! Although traveling while pregnant and having to take care of a rumbustious 2 year old girl is a lot of work but I managed to survive the journey. Luckily, my husband is an awesome daddy and he took care of my daughter most of the time. My six year old is an experienced world traveler so for her walking, customs and sightseeing is like second nature lol.

Now the bad news :(
