Nativity Lanterns

I made these as well for the church dinner I talked about in a couple other posts. These are paper. The black ones hold a battery operated tea light inside.  They are all cut with the Silhouette.

Stable Few

I made these too for the Christmas dinner at church. It is a photo cut in half attached to a block with a bow.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

I needed some photo booth props for a party for work. I ordered some and was very disappointed. They were super tiny so I made these using the Silhouette. 

Monday, December 11, 2017


I was responsible for Nativity sets for a church dinner and I was worried there wouldn't be enough so I made these. I cut them with my Silhouette.  They are little boxes.  There are more pieces to the set but I only did these.

foiling - TODO machin

I tried heat foiling before but it didn't really work.  Recently, I was able to get a Todo machine at my favorite craft outlet and now I can do this!!  I got the machine for $20. It is a $200 machine.

I did this for a swap.  I have had the paper since my 50th birthday when friends sent me packages of card making supplies from England.  There are so many kind people in the world!!

Leaving a thank you

Made over 20 of these really quickly the other night to take to a gratitude lesson so everyone could send a thank you card after. Leavers were a Tim Holtz die.

Gratitude Tree

At work, we are doing a gratitude tree. A girl drew the tree and I have been cutting leave.  People in the department write what they are thankful for and add leaves to the tree.  It will fill up more during the rest of the month.

Christmas card - Magnolia

Here is another card from the night I just sat coloring with Copics on a stack of images I had done over time. I think it is better to pick the paper and then color because you can match the paper but this one worked out fine.

Santa Card

I had a stack of images I have collected over time. This is one of them . Colored with Copics.  The ornaments are a trim punch. The words are a peel off.

The flowers were bought as is.

Fancy Hummingbird Die

My favorite craft store had some very expensive, super detailed dies on sale.  It has layers and provides a mirror image of everything.  I have a set of dies for the nutcracker suite too.  The dies are called Couture and they are by Craft and Create. I think it is a European company.  This set was called The Songbird Collection.  I did two cards for my work birthday cards.

Birthday card - Man or woman's

I did this card recently.  Big card for work again. I just love these papers . The dark brown is metalic bronze.  The thing is, I used these great manly stamps with flowers in the background.  What do you think...card for a Man or a Woman?

Days until Board

This is another project for Super Saturday.  You can use it for any event. 5 days until Your Birthday, 6 days until School starts. Any count down you want.  It is done with a 1 by 4 board that is 15 inches long.  I found lots of these online but none told me the dimensions. So I figured those out myself. In addition, I designed my own "days until" and cut the vinyl with my Silhouette.

Faceted Halloween Boxes

I did 21 of these boxes to give at work. The box looks far harder than it is.  I got the idea from Dawn. Here is her video but I didn't do the lid. I just diecut the scalloped circle in the center of the top piece.

If you have questions, let me know.  Have a creative day.

Wooden Nativity Blocks

This is another Super Saturday project. They were done with 2.5 inch pieces of 2 X 4. It's a set of 14 blocks. I loved using the non-traditional colors rather than Christmas colors.  The images were just printed and glued on. 

I haven't been able to find the site I got the images from but if I find it, I will add the link here.

Super Saturday Sign

Perhaps it is a bit odd to post a picture of the poster for the activity, but I worked hard on it. The flowers were stamped using Stampin Up ink and stamps.  Luckily it's a pretty big stamp. The letters were cut with my Silhouette.

Fry Boxs

Another class I am offering for Super Saturday is these fry boxes. They will be free to the people who are taking this class. I will just be bringing lots of supplies and they will come up with their own designs. The fry box die is by Stampin Up.

3rd Card for class

I have used this die several times before. It is by Tim Holtz and Sizzix. It is just so simple to make a great looking card with this die.

Modern Tree Card

In the hopes of coming up with simple cards for the card class for Super Saturday, this is the second card. The tree and star are cut with the Silhouette.  I felt it needed more so I hole punch was used to create ornaments.

Manager Christmas Card

Part of the reason I stopped posting every day was because I am now over the activities for the woman at my church.  I am responsible for a "Super Saturday" activity in Nov so I had to make some things very fast.  This is one of the cards we will be doing for the card class part of this activity.  I am offering 3 cards free of charge however, I am asking for a donation of a small item to give to the Veteran's Home. The items I am requesting can all be picked up at the dollar store.

So here is the first of the simple cards they will be doing. The stamp is one I got at I Brake For Stamps.  I must have liked it because I have two. That will be perfect for a class though! I checked the website for the stamp and did n't see it but there is a digital version available if  you are interested.

Birthday's that Soar

I picked up this fabulous hot air balloon paper at Craft Outlet. It was 25 sheet package for $1.  I diecut the two large balloons with the Stampin Up die set called Lift Me Up.  The card is another very large card ( 5.5 X 8.5) for work.

Birthday cards

I will not be posting daily. I have taken on some additional responsibilities at church and can not continue to do this daily and keep up. I will continue to post far more than I did before I started this challenge and hope you will continue to come visit.

Here are a couple large birthday cards I did for work. I did them in pairs this time so there are now 4 done for next year out of the 40 or so that I need to do.

The card above loses something in the photo. It is clear plastic paper with balloons over a blue glitter paper. I don't think you see the blue at all here. The words are cut with the Silhouette. 

This second are is cone with Stampin Up stamps and dies, as well as some vert pretty paper.

Day 186 - Haunted Forest

This the board I made for work. It is all cut from my Silhouette.

Day 185 - Wolf Mask

My son's department has the theme of woodland animals so he asked me if I could make a wolf mask.  I did this with a cut file on Silhouette. It is 3 Dimensional. I had to enlarge it as I think it was designed for a child. I couldn't find a grey I liked for the base so I got this heavy grey metallic for the base and it turned out fabulous. I have to cut it twice to get through the material but it made a great strong base for the mask.

Day 184 Birthday Wishes

Here is the last large birthday card for 2017 for work.  It was suppose to be a masculine card but it is kind of gender neutral. The grey balloons are metallic silver.  I cut the words with my Silhouette and  the balloons were punched out with a Stampin Up punch . I drew the lines on the balloons and the highlight spot.

Day 183 - Christmas is coming

I combined a couple different Silhouette files to make this one. I will be doing several of these in different colors. . 

And here is the pop up part!
