Print & Cut with Silhouette Cameo

Another Tutorial here with the Cameo. I hope you don't get sick of them but I am loving this software and just want to show others how to use the functions! This video I had to piece together from two videos since I need to video computer screen and then the actually cutting process. I am a newbie with this video editing so please be patient with me while I learn! :)

You're one of a kind

Today is my last day on Joys Life team. I am sad to see it come to an end but I am taking a month long vacation in April and a much needed break to spend time with my hubby and also house hunt. We are headed to Florida which I am happy to go back to. We have had a cold, windy winter and I am so over it. 

Today I used the "Sweet Popsicle Puns" the sentiments in all the sets are really versatile and even if it is a "themed" set you will find that many can be used for anytime. I used some Chocolate Chip twine from Timeless Twine.  I have enjoyed working with Joys Life stamps. I think Joy has a wonderful sense of humor and of course that is very important to me to enjoy what I am doing and the products I use. So please stop by Joys Life DT blog and leave me some love! :)

Joys LIfe "Inspired By" Blog Hop


Thank you for stopping by to join us in the "Inspired By"
Joys Life Blog Hop. 
You should have arrived here from Laura's blog. Today I made a very colorful card inspired by the photo below. Mostly I was inspired by the colors in the photo and that is what I was using for my inspiration! I used two sets from Joys Life to create the "Happy Everything" sentiment. I used "Holiday Occasions" and "Everyday Occasions" sets. 

I made the flowers and the polaroid cut from the Silhouette studio files. I love the little flowers. My favorite is the larger blue one. I put some Imaginisce bling on a few of the petals. Lord you should have seen that bling fly everywhere when I was opening the new package cause I couldn't figure out how it opened! I purchased the one with multiple colors in the container. Well lets just say I know how it operates NOW! But I will be vacuuming up lots of little bling for a while. Hope you enjoy the hop!! 

This is my inspiration picture

Here is my project 
It isn't a card it is a cute little decorated chipboard for my desk. 
I think my Polaroid is really hard to see!

I'm too sexy for this card

Heller Peeps!! I am over on Timeless Twine today.

Its a fabulous Wednesday Morning (yeah right) and I am sharing a goofy, crazy lady again for my card! I am on a kick right now with silly things. Yes I know I am warped but I like that one thing about myself. I can critique loads of things about myself but the one thing I do not ever want to change is my sense of humor. Honestly if I didn't have one I would probably be locked away somewhere in a dark room getting medication at intervals throughout the day and I would be looking around for R.P (Jack Nicholson from One flew over the cuckoos nest) ok cuckoos I would'nt have spelled it like that but hey the internet says that is how it is so it is....(but coo coo's nest seemed better don't ya think?)

I made this file myself in my silhouette studio just like I did my "Call me Maybe" lady" a few post back. This one was made up from seeing a crazy picture on the internet. So I just started working on shapes and got this together. She should of had some crazy socks on but this was the prototype and lets be real here folks this took me a long time to get done so it became THE one for the project! 

I used mostly straight pieces for the hair cause it was suppose to mostly be frazzled hair but I wanted to throw the curls in there a bit. 

I used coredinations paper for alot of it. Hand drew the lines for the skirt and shirt and some of the face and Bernice was ALIVE! ok now I am in my head saying ALIVE like Dr. Frankenstein from "Young Frankenstein" I am so abby normal! Maybe I need to get out of the house more often....eeeegh we shall see what happens when I come out of hibernation.

I used "Pumpkin Orange" for her hair. 
I hope you like Bernice!

The pair of Us

Today I am on Joys Life blog sharing a little card I created using the "Yummy Puns" stamp set. My friend Annette (she is awesome!) sent me some cute little dimensional felt embellishments and I have been wanting to use them and thought this stamp set was perfect for these embellishments. Don't you just love the sweet little faces and buttons on these embellies!!

I just did print and cut papers on my cameo to create the card. I used my Timeless Twine in "Cherry 

Red" 


This is going to be a quick post. Sorry no drama or crazy stories to tell today. I am swamped with things to do and just wanted to share this with you all! More stories and mayhem to follow I am sure!

Sharing Your Greatest Joy

I am back on Joy's Life blog today and I wanted to share my project with you using her set "Everyday Occassions" 

This set is very versatile cause you can mix and match the words to create the sentiment that is right for you. I wanted to make another surprise slider card so I made a cute little girly baby one! I should have made my tag just a smidgen bigger but it still works. I love these different kinds of cards and I do have a video showing how I created the file in silhouette. I plan to do another video in the next day or so slowing how to create a special shaped slider. 

Click my video tab above or my you tube button on the side to see the videos I have so far. 

I used my favorite Timeless Twine in colors Bubblegum Pink & Olive Green
Paper is from My Minds Eye "Fine & Dandy Girl"

Make a Surprise Slider Card Silhouette File

Today I wanted to show you a video of how to make a silhouette file for a surprise slider card. This video is showing a basic square card. I made one with a cute shape that I will make another video of how to do it later on. This will help you to get familiar with how to create these files and put them together. I will also be doing a video on how they go together. There are two versions of this as well.




This is an example of a surprise slider card. This was from a previous post that you can find here. 

EXAMPLE OF A SURPRISE SLIDER CARD


Keep checking back for more videos. I will be making more!! Instructions to put together this card will be one of them!

Call Me Maybe?

Hello People! Today I am on Timeless Twine Blog and I am showing my goofy side again. I love humor and if you know me you definitely know that. I like to laugh, I like to make people laugh and my crafting is definitely on the funny side.

I don't take alot too seriously I guess so that I can stay sane and happy. There is so much in life that can make us unhappy that I choose not to let that happen and I laugh alot every day. It helps to have a funny husband as well. I have video and pictures to prove that. Sometimes we will be in a store and the music is playing and I tell Bob I say "Break it down" and he will start dancing. He knows I am videoing him with my phone and when I need a laugh I have those videos to give me one.

I have some on my phone that even though I have watched them a ton I still laugh at them.

Ok enough of that nonsense right! Get to the crafting part...

I made this crazy looking lady in Silhouette Studio DE. I am loving making files. Mostly what I have made so far is card bases but I challenged myself to do something else. I am so sure there is easier and better ways to achieve it but I am still happy with the results. Yes its not perfect....do I care heck no!

I wanted her to have crazy eyes and glasses (maybe she is someone I know.....hmmmmmm I wear glasses.....but my hair is NOT like this) But I do not like to be on the telephone so I can relate to her.

I think because I have to talk so much with clients all day long that when I am at home I avoid the telephone like the plague. And besides its usually some stupid collection agency looking for someone named Adam who doesn't live with us....I DO not know him and I am not just fibbing with them. Seriously when you tell them they got the wrong number they always say "So you don't know Adam" ha ha ha so that is what you got out of me saying "You got the wrong number" why I believe you must have graduated from MIT you moron! OH Adam....I thought you said Fred....so you do know Adam? Adam who is Adam...you said you wanted to talk with Fred....ok I am done messing with you....GOODBYE...I mean it gets tiresome messing with them day in and day out when they are desperately seeking Adam.

Now see I got side tracked again! I used Timeless Twine "Tuxedo Black" for the telephone cord. And then some "Cherry Red" for a bow.
I used for the sentiment and the border a stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop "Lets Chat".
