How to Alter a Simple Notebook & Pen for a Unique Look

It’s so creatively rewarding to give a makeover to an item so that it can reflect your style or to alter something for a gift.  I love to do that!  This started as a plain brown notebook.  Yawn.  It would get lost in a sea of other plain brown notebooks, if not for using a…

3D Cardstock Spooky Halloween Lantern

This post was previously shared on the Core’dinations blog. It’s almost Halloween but there’s still time to make some creepy, cool, haunted decor! I’m using the Lantern SVG from the Spooky Soiree Kit by SVGCuts.  It’s one of my favorite things that I made for Halloween this year.  It may look complicated but SVGCuts always has…

Mummy Card & Candy Set with Epiphany Crafts

Are you feeling just a little creeped out seeing all those spiders?  I have to admit that while I was working with the ribbon and making the spider pendant, I started to feel that icky sensation that something was walking on me.  Nothing was.  Thank you for that Halloween moment you yucky little creatures!

Happy Halloween Photo Card with Craftwell Cut ‘N Boss & Teresa Collins

I love this picture I took of my sons back when they were shorter than I am.  It looks like Iron Man should probably have slept with one eye opened.  LOL!  It was super fun making a frame for this Halloween photo card using a bit of craft felt and the Craftwell Cut n’ Boss. I…

Poinsettia Mason Jar Topper with Spellbinders & Xyron

This poinsettia mason jar topper happened completely by accident.  True story.  I opened the package of Frame One Shapez Dies by Spellbinders and when I removed them they shifted in a way that looked like a poinsettia to me.  A happy accident! I cut out five shapes in red and one large one in green.  Next, I used the…

Back To School 3D Cardstock Backpack

How cool is it that you can make things like this entirely out of paper?  It never ceases to amaze me!  Today I’m using the Back to the Books SVG kit by SVGCuts. I cut out all the pieces using my Silhouette Cameo.  The Xyron 5″ Creative Station made adhering the cursive panels a breeze…

Fun Camera Shaped Card

I had a blast making these cards!  I love shaped cards.  I think they are my favorite kind to make.  I downloaded this one called “Camera Shaped Card” from the Silhouette store. I used my new stamp sets “That Tastes Punny” and “Punny Animals” for the “Say Cheese” and “Sorry I was snappy” sayings. “Oh,…

Did you see that Silhouette recently added Batman to their print and cut download offerings?  If you haven’t used the print and cut function of your Cameo, you should give it a try.  I think it’s a fun way to make something quick, like this!  TA DA!  Was that fast?  I thought that was fast….
