Playing Wth Vinyl {Silhouette Projects}




One of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette is definitely cutting vinyl decals. I pretty much make them for any reason I can think of. I LOVE PLAYING WITH VINYL!  

I picked up this pail and garden tool set for Maddy at Target so she can have her own stuff to help in our gardens this year. It was cute enough, but I wanted to personalize it for her. I used the blue sparkle vinyl (from JoAnn's) for her name and the handles and a silver vinyl for the tools. She loves it!

I also got the boys new Easter baskets this year (from Target as well) and personalized them with some vinyl. Super easy but a really nice touch.

Stella Says Sketch! {#208}


Here ya go! A new Stella Says Sketch challenge at Bugaboo! This one looked easy enough but actually making the card took me way longer than it should have. This right here is a 2 hour card! It was frustrating but it came together in the end and I'm really happy with how it turned out. 


I used the JJ Gardening 2 image. Things are finally starting to warm up around here and we just started our little vegetable garden. I was originally making this card for my sister who usually grows a lot of flowers and vegetables and then I remembered that she just moved to an apartment and probably won't be growing a garden this year. Whoops! 


Stop over at the Catch the Bug blog and see what the rest of the design team did with this sketch and play along for your chance to win some awesome Bugaboo images like this one.

BINGO With Bugaboo


There's a fun new BINGO challenge up on the Catch the Bug blog today. I really love these BINGO challenges, I have fun picking my recipe for the card. This time I went with 3 across the top: Polka Dots (on the Cupcake), Hot Pink and Flowers. I had a hard time figuring out the flowers for this card but I love the Hot Pink ones I made. These were plain white mulberry flowers - all the way from China (gotta love eBay) and I just colored them with my Neon pink Sharpie and added black pearls to the centers and sprayed some shimmer mist on them.  Super cute. 


I used the Penguin Birthday Cake and Penguin Cupcake images from Bugaboo on a swing card, which I cut with my Silhouette. I love making these "fancy" cards but they were always such a pain to cut out so I LOVE that the Silhouette does the hard part for me. 


I used the black glitter sketch pen to print the Happy Birthday Sentiment. This isn't the best photo but you can see the glitter pretty good below:

Freebie Friday {Polka Dot Baby}



Happy Friday! There is an adorable new Freebie in the Bugaboo store today- Polka Dot Baby. 

My friend is expecting a baby girl any second now so I made this card to send to her once that little baby gets here. 


It was fun to make a baby girl project again, I have been in baby boy mode because of my little Deacon. Getting all the pink out was a nice change. 


Head on over to the store to pick up your freebie and be sure to check out all the new releases while you're there. And don't forget to stop over at the Catch the Bug blog to see more great DT projects made with the Polka Dot baby.
