Sassy Purse Template.

 Kelleigh has a new template in her store over at the Digichick and I was so lucky to get to play with it. It is called Sassy Purse and it is so adorable!

I used this template to make a gift card holder for my daughter's friend who was having a glamorous birthday party at a spa for little girls (YES! There is such thing and it is uh-mazing!) The sassy purse was the perfect match for the party theme.

Handmade Stationery Kit

Tomorrow is the last day of school (finally lol) and I know it will be hectic! So I went ahead and took the frozen sqeezes for the class and gave my daughter's teacher her gift.

Last time I sent a couple of sheets from a stationary set I was working on but for some reason (still to this day) when I work with LD graphics my studio can't handle it and freezes. I ended up only printing a couple of pages before the studio crashed. I couldn't open that file ever again :(

So I decided to make something similar but more like a kit. I looked on pinterest for ideas on how to present the gift, I didn't want to make a paper box because I wanted it to last.

School is OUT...Summer is IN!

Two more days until school in our district is OVER! I can't wait! No more waking up early, no more trying to figure out what to send for lunch or finding healthy snack options for my daughter.

One of her ultimate snacks nowadays are these squeezable applesauce packs we get from walmart but at a buck each, it gets expensive! Here comes pinterest to my rescue! I found this uh-mazing little gizmo that has made packing homemade, fresh squeezed fruit pouches a breeze! Introducing the: Infantino Squeeze Station!

Candy Dispenser


My daughter loves to work with the silhouette studio and likes picking shapes for me. We usually make a project at home where she picks from the design to the paper (with my suggestion of course lol) And yesterday she picked the Candy Dispenser by Lori Whitlock, such a cute file! It has tons of pieces but don't get scared, it is easy to put together. We chose True Friends digital paper for the panels and it was such a perfect pair!




That's all I have for today! School ends next Thursday and baby is finally getting into a settled routine which makes me so hopeful about my crafting time. Maybe we can squeeze more into our busy schedule and I hope you continue to visit me.

Have a happy crafty day!


Elmo Banner

I just wanted to post a super cute banner I made for my friend's son. It is his 1st birthday and the theme of the party is Elmo, so I just had to make a themed banner for him. It is my gift to the handsome little fella and I hope he likes it (not that a 1 year old cares lol)

Here it is!


The banner base is from the Silhouette store and it was a freebie OMG like many moons ago lol. The font is called  postino Std. and the image is from Google, I traced it in the silhouette and offset the image to 0.085 (my favorite number to create a sticker effect. Also, all the letters and images were glued with dimensional squares, I wanted to add a 3D effect to the banner.

The paper I used is AC cardstock and it is simple THE BEST to cut with your cameo, hands down the best!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy crafty day :)
