Christmas Tags - Sketch/Pen Holder

Hello everybody!

This is a super quick project I whipped today. After finishing wrapping the presents, my daughter pointed that the presents had no tags! So how could they know which one belongs to her or her sister. I really don't have much time for stamping or print and cutting or layering and last year most of the tags I hung with twine came off because we open our gifts at my SIL's house in Charleston.

Santa Card - Print and Cut

Tomorrow is the last day of class at my daughter's school and she just asked me to make Christmas cards for her friends, oi! I have been in so much pain today, my heels hurt so much I can barely stand up or walk, well...everything hurts and I keep repeating to myself: Only 6 more weeks, only 6 more weeks! I have never wished the year was over so badly like I do now hahaha.

Anyways, back to the cards...

Rhinestones and baby blanket.

Hello, hello!! Yesterday was my daughter's 7th birthday and this is the second year I get to make her a birthday shirt using my Cameo. Remember last year's post? Find it here for the rhinestones tutorial.

She wanted rhinestones this time and I was so excited to make something using the thousands of stones I got last year when Sil. America had the big Black Friday sale and New Year's sale, lol

This is super quick, no tutorial since it was very late when I got a chance to cut my template and because the design has different colors of rhinestones, I had to put then ONE BY ONE. Having a quick pick was such a wonderful help but it still took me a while to set the stones in place.

Here is the cut out of my template

Of course you have to use the part WITH the holes but I love how clean my silhouette cut the template paper. I used the Rhinestone Template cut option that is already in the default settings. It worked perfectly! I had to put my paper on a mat because it was very small to fit under the rollers.

Here it is! A plain Old Navy shirt all "blinged" up :P

Now, onto baby things! Remember I was on self inflicted bed rest? LOL. Well, if you have ever been on bed rest you know how bad and boring it can get so I decided to take into another one of my hobbies, crocheting! So, I made an infinity scarf (haven't pictured it yet) and a baby blanket. I can't believe I finished the blanket in such short time! Just 4 weeks which could have been less if I could understand written crochet instructions. The body of the blanket came from a magazine but I ended up ending it my way because I could not figure out the complicated rumble of directions in the magazine.

The beginning (11/12/12)

Two days later, lol

Four weeks later 12/12/12

It is so beautiful and I can't wait to use it <3...only 51 more days left (give or take)

see ya next time!

Christmas Ornament

A couple days ago I saw a picture of this amazing Christmas ornament made out of paper, of course, on one of my Facebook Silhouette users group. The ornament was originally featured in the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog. To be honest, I am a super fan of SU products but as expensive as they are, I doubt I would get into using their stuff exclusively. I have a craft budget to keep :P
