Cameo gets a make over

Hello everyone!!! I wanted to share a quick project and will be showcasing more of the frame files for Carina Gardner this week. She is having a FLASH sale on the frames 60% off!!!

I  knew I wanted to decorate my cameo as I once did my cricut and I thought this frame and the script was very pretty. It cut like butter and I even reduced it down!! It was just under 8" so that it would fit on my cameo just where I wanted it to.

The cameo cuts so nice this is very intricut but it cut beautiful. Some of the pieces since I reduced it was just a smidge bigger than a hair in some areas.

I think it turned out pretty. Check out the files Carina has in her shop. Some beautiful frames are in the shop. They would be perfect for a beautiful sign on the wall out of vinyl or even on a floating frame!!

Here is the link to the file I used Frame 13 diecut

Shake Shake Shake

My blog has been a bit neglected lately. I started an etsy shop selling planner clips, plushies and button flair and it has really kept me busy!!

Today I am on Timeless Twine and we are showcasing the Sorbet Collection all month long. They are  on sale this month. You can get a great deal on the set of 3 or buy them individually.

I made two shaker cards. I intended to use some cute camera paper I had but it was too much pattern for the entire card so I just used an accent of it on the camera card. The sequins are from Bella Creationz as well as the stamps I used for both cards. I will have links to everything below.

I cut the polaroid about 6 times and layered those pieces and added foam to just give it alot of dimension.

The crab is a Miss Kate's Cuttable file. The camera is just from the silhouette store. Not sure who created it.

The camera paper is from Simple Stories I believe. I had purchased Simple Stories "DIY Boutique" and Kaisercraft "Happy Snaps" and was hoarding these papers. I finally cut some to make planner dividers that I will share on here on another post so I had some scraps I used on the camera card.

Day at the zoo

Today i am sharing a little mini I made with Carina Gardner's SVG files. Our family decided to take a trip to the zoo and we had a great time. It ended up being about 90+ degrees and super humid but we made the best of it!

Jordan had a great time and for a little guy he did about 3 hours of walking and didn't whine about nothing. I think he really enjoyed seeing all the animals. He wanted to take a train ride around the zoo which we had hoped would show all the animals. It was crazy it just showed the buildings and operations of the zoo (who wants to see that!) so in the process of the long wait in line we missed feeding the giraffes. BUMMER. The giraffes are my absolute favorite animal. One year I was there they had a baby and it was just so adorable.

They had a new orangoutang exhibit that was quite disappointing. We seen only about two and they seemed rather lethargic. My photo seems bad but honestly it was because of the glass they were behind.

The cover I took the giraffe shape from the Alphabet file to create a shaped cover for the front. I pop dotted the giraffe for dimension. I hand wrote the "DAY AT" part of my album. Carina's "Swirly The" file was PERFECT for the look I was going for. I even doodled this out before working on it and I had doodled something similar so it was meant to be.

I have a list at the bottom of all the files I used for the album. It was fun and I still have loads of pages to fill.

I added Timeless Twine to some of the photos to just give it that extra little detail and to some of the tags.

**I used Carta Bella's Alphabet Junction on most of the pages and AC Cardstock for the solids





I used the "double pocket album" file to just create a little pocket and added the fish from the letter "F" I also added wink of Stella Glitter pen to the fish. Hard to tell in photo.



I created a button (of course right!) and fit it over the giraffe body just to give it a little pop of dimension.










I just made a pocket to keep extra photos and journaling cards in until I get to adding more pages





I cut a second layer on some of the images and pop dotted them to give them more dimension. I also created a button clip with the elephant. Here is a close up.

My Hero



Debbie here from Craftin Chaos and continuing with our color theme I made a cute little dog tag card. I used elements from the Embellishment kit offered in the Bella Creationz store. These sequins and buttons were perfect for our Firecracker twine.

Its a Celebration!



Today I am on Snap Click Supply Co for JessicaSprague.com. We are celebrating the birthday of Jessicasprague.com. It has been 7 years so the team was to concentrate on the number "7". I had originally wanted to also make 7 treat bags and have 7 of a variety of things in my picture.

I had a family emergency that took me away from home so it also put a bit of a halt in my crafting. Being away for a while was hard for so many reasons. But I managed to get one of my visions done and I hope you get some inspiration from it. I don't have step by step pictures this time as I was working on a time crunch.

I wanted to take the Happy Birthday celebration literal in my use of the "7" so I created 3 boxes which you can fill each one with a variety of candy and treats for the birthday person. You can fill the bottom two round boxes with candy or I would also individually wrap some rice krispy treats (my absolute fav's) just to give the birthday person such a variety and the people at the party. I concentrated on the top box.

I used a cut file to create the box on top and I knew I wanted it to be rectangle and tall. I created "7" holes in the top with my cameo for the pops to stick out of.


I then created the bottom two round boxes. I used "Samantha Walker's Hat Box" to create these. I modified the size to get what I needed.



I used Carta Bella's "It's a Celebration" papers. I love all the variety you can get on Snap Click Supply Co. I like that you have access to so many great designer papers at your fingertips!

I used the elements from the collection to create the large tag for the front of my box and then pop dotted the party hat on it. I added Timeless Twine to the top part of my second box to give more dimension. I also tied off my pops with twine.

I melted "Wilton's candy Melts" and put two marshmallows on each stick and dipped them and rolled in various colors of sugars. Super duper easy. I have made these marshmallow pops in a smore's version as well. Dip them in melting chocolates and roll in graham crackers. Trust me your kids....and adults too will love them.


Placed the "7" Pops out the top of the box and it was done! Easy Peasy!
