Posts Tagged ‘paper crafting’

I decided to learn something new today- print and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.

There are plenty of tutorials out there – some are actually pretty good- but I had to go through a few before I figured stuff out.

Anyway, after a few issues, I finally printed and cut out some super cute VW bus images!

I used printer paper so my mess ups wouldn’t use up my cardstock. As a result, these cuties are perfect for my planner!

Here’s how it went once I got it going:


Aren’t they adorable?? I found them in the Silhouette store. It’s called “camper van tags” and was .99 today.  My Silhouette got one first. Here’s how I put the adhesive on them. I love my Xyron! And after all these years wondering what to put on my Mac, these are perfect! They make me smile. I think this could be the start of something super fun!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless.

What a week this has been! I began on Sunday, meeting with a super sweet lady who loves Stampin’ Up as much as I do, then on Monday I signed up a wonderful friend to be on my Stampin’ Up team. I received a phone call tonight from my new (Sunday) friend and she is going to sign up as well! That makes my downline number FIVE! I am so excited! They are all talented demonstrators and I am just thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of women.

I’ll spend all next week making sure I’m up on all the latest so I can encourage my downline to succeed in their dreams. What a gift God has given me. I do not understand the timing, and I won’t question it… I’m just incredibly, wholeheartedly blessed.

To celebrate, I made this video! LOL! Please subscribe to my channel… it’s brand new and I promise to keep it fun and informative! God bless!

I love Facebook. Why? Well, first of all it helps me to know the prayer needs of others. Second to that, I get to know when neat things are happening with my kids – like the garden that my son The Boy and his wife Emily are planning.

The post showed them tilling the soil. I knew I had to do something to surprise and encourage them, so I whipped out my Cricut machine and made these:

I will add plant stakes to them so they can stand the signs in their garden. I think my grandLittles will enjoy the fun colors and shapes too!
Here’s how they came together:

First, I used Cricut Craft Room to select designs from the Cricut cartridge Freshly Picked . Once I selected the various components, I arranged them on the virtual mat, wrote down the sizes and began cutting.
It wasn’t too difficult to choose colors- earthy, garden colors worked out just fine.

A bit of trimming came next.

Some 2-way glue and a bit of placing elements together came next:

Now it was time to laminate:

I made sure to round the corners when I cut them apart since there will be some little hands in the garden!

Once finished, I took them all outside to introduce them to their natural habitat! Here they are again:

I have a few more to make but thought I’d share now just in case I forget to before I mail them.

Stampin' Up! A few special cards!

Everyone loves to receive a sweet card in the mail, and that’s the purpose behind tomorrow’s card class. My friends will enjoy making one of each of these six cards, and check this out: I’m keeping the class time down to TWO hours! Yep, I am. I’m trying out something new, and preparing as much as I can in advance. Most of the work is assembly but the ladies will get to use the Big Shot and enjoy learning some special techniques as we go.

I’m excited to share what I love with friends who enjoy creating as much as I do.

So it’s off to card class I go, with my Big Shot doctor’s bag, a basket of tools and a bag full of supplies.

I’ll share some finished projects when we’re done!

Oh, and by the way, classes will be held every other Tuesday, so if you’re local, let me know and I’ll save you a seat!

God bless,
Kathy Bo

A quick share tonight- I’m pretty tired after traveling to the GrandLittle’s birthday!
Today’s technique is CASEd (copy and share everything) from www.stampwithtami.com
It’s a chalkboard effect Valentine’s Day card.

What did I use? Well, here we go:

Stampin’ Up! (SU) cardstock, SU Cherry Cobbler heat embossing powder, SU Hearts A Flutter bundle, SU Tiny Tags clear mount stamps, SU Elements Cute Clips, SU Whisper White ink, Pen-Touch white paint pen.

That’s it! Easy peasy.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
