I’m under attack!!

Frog.. Toad.. whatever it is, it’s slimy and ugly!

I take most of my pictures outside to get better lighting and I was just doing my thang when I got a little visitor…
Photobucket

I tend to yell ‘shut up’ when things scare me.. and this was no different! This dude climed up the table leg and jumped right onto my table.. “SHUT UP!.. Ahhhhhh!!!”… Then it was more like, “Umm, hello.. I’m like, a million times bigger than you, GO AWAY!..” I surely didn’t wanna touch him.. and I thought to tip over the table, but.. I mean.. I do have a heart and all, I didn’t want to hurt him! Let’s get real folks, he eats all the fugly spiders and bugs that hang around here. (Gosh, does my house sound nasty now, or what? Frogs, spiders and other random bugs. It’s like a recipe for witches brew in my backyard!..) So what did I do?

I blew on him.
Yes.. blew on him.
He jumped and I am pretty sure he wanted to attack my face.

Anyhow.. I decided to just leave him on the table, there was plenty of room for us both.

Ha! The frog/toad thingy decided to come see what was goin’ on..
Photobucket

Yes, that’s pee! The little punk PEED on my cardboard backdrop thingy! As Stephanie Tanner would say, “HOW RUDE!” Hmmph!

He kept on goin’…
Photobucket

Seriously! This is sooo not your new home, buddy!

… And then he comes out the other side. So casually, like he owns this!
Photobucket

OK.. Bye?.. he jumped off the table and went on his merry way.
Photobucket

*shivers*
Is this not the weirdest blog post?… I mean… Who has frogs ‘attack’ when taking pictures of a card?

Oh, do you want to see the card?
Photobucket

Photobucket

Yes, super simple! I cheated and used stickers. I really just wanted to make this card really quick and show you this technique! You can’t exactly put this in an envelope as it would get crushed, but hey.. it’s cool looking! Just cut yourself some strips of paper and get busy! I used my ATG gun and you lay the strips down and adhere them in sections and you just push them up a bit to create ‘waves’
Photobucket

That’s it! I hope you like it! I want to do other versions of this card with some SVG files or Print and Cut.. we will see if I actually get to it from my loooong list, lol! I’ve been doing a LOT of crafting lately! Kiddos are back in school and as soon as my little guy naps, I hit the craft area! Some nights I even ‘pre-plan’ my project and will have everything layed out the night before, lol. I know it seems like I have been doing a lot of cards lately, and well, that’s beause I have! LOL! Just wait though.. I am designing some 3D awesomeness for Echo Park! I can’t wait to share!

Alrighty, I will talk to you all later!

4th of July… ALREADY?

I really can’t believe how fast this summer.. well, this YEAR is going by! Before I know it, I’m going to be shopping for Christmas presents!

I am already short on time to make the decorations I wanted. As soon as I saw the SVG Cuts USA collection, I knew I’d make everything in that set! So fun! I finally started on these letters, oh boy, what a challenge! I like to think I am pretty good at figuring things out on my own, but that is so not the case. I had to make the ‘S’ 3 times before it was perfect! First time, I didn’t watch the video.. second time it looked like my 3yo son made it.. third time, I got it! You really have to be patient and work slowly. I made the ‘A’ first, which was super easy.. so I kinda though that this whole project would be easy peasy. I plan on making letters for my kiddos rooms with their 3D Letters set… Alannah, Autumn and AuStin… Something tells me Austin might get left out, LOL!

Anyhow, I will share the banner and such when it’s done… but for now, here are my USA letters. I did it a bit differently than SVG Cuts has it. I LOVE the children silhouette so I used that. Plus, I added some ‘fireworks’. I actually planned to add a little more, but I think this is enough. If I added anymore it would just be too much.

Photobucket

Photobucket

The ‘fireworks’ were made by poking little holes through the top with a craft knife and twisting jewelry wire a bit and then adding on the stars, which are in the eCal or MTC shapes library. Put some hot glue on the end of the wire and stick it through the hole. Hold it for a bit while it cools. If you make the holes too big, it won’t work.

Photobucket

I really like the brown inking with this! Gives it a more vintage look!

Photobucket

After I made this I wished I had edited the SVG file and welded on one more girl to make my 3 kiddos.. darn!

Photobucket

Photobucket

You likey? I kept everything as sized when opened in SCAL. Even the children silhouette from the card file! The star fireworks are all cut at 1.25, 1.00, .85 and .70″..

Oh, and the paper is ‘Americana’ by K&Company! Love it!

I hope you all are having a great week!

Toodles!

I’ve got mah’ flippy floppy’s!

Well.. I’ve got ONE of ‘em! lol..

This week at Paper Dolls we are making FLIP FLOP BOXES! How fun! When I saw this file from Eleanor of SVG Shop I was so excited! I LIVE in flip flops in the summer! I’m picky though! They either have to be bright colored with big ol’ flowers on the top.. or my Reef Fannings! <~~~~ Those are what I have for this summer. I get a new pair every year! The most COMFORTABLE flip flops, ever! They hug your feet nicely and don’t really ‘flop’…. or ‘flip’.. so.. are they still ‘flip flops?… Or, are they.. SANDALS?.. lol.

*blink – blink*

Wait.. am I selling flip flops here.. or am I trying to show you my project for Paper Dolls?

(really though, check those sandals out!)

Anyhow..

Here is my take on the flip flop box! I went for a luau theme that would be GREAT for party favors! This was easy to make (for a 3D project), even better!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And not only is the Crop-a-Dile fun to say.. it’s pretty awesome, too! Like my eyeltets?

Photobucket

Wanna make one like mine?… Head on over to Tamara’s shoe factory with your best glue.. and let’s get busy!

You can download the box from the Paper Dolls Blog.. so scootch on over there and get it!

I kept my boxed as pre-sized.

To decorate my flippy floppy, I used SVG Attic’s Luau collection!

So pretty! You gotta check out her work! (Jessica of SVG Attic). She’s just getting started, but from what I have seen from her, she’s got great stuff! Her files are easy to use, too! Also, be sure to ‘like’ her Facebook, and let her know I sent ya!

Here are the sizes I used from the Luau collection:

  • Hibiscus – 1.40w
  • Lanterns – ’round:1.063w  ‘lantern: .904w   ’tall: 1.151w
  • Luau Caption – 4.542w
  • Coconut drink – 2.396w

That’s it! I didn’t want to do too much to the flip flop because I didn’t want it to be overkill. I think the little touches I added were just right for this, though!

For the off white ‘inner’ part of the sandal, I just opened up another flop flop piece.. and unchecked ‘keep proportions’ and kinda smoohed it a bit to fit how I wanted.. I used an x-acto knife to cut the spaces for the straps. Then I inked and embossed it.. love the way it came out!

I strung the lanterns with some twine and tied little bows. You could do this with someone’s name for a gift!

The ‘grass’ trim is just two strips of paper cut to 1.25″ and frayed by hand with scissors. Super easy to do!

Welp, I hope you have enjoyed this one! I will be pretty quiet this week as I finish up the stuff for the SVG Summer Shindig Blop Hop! I can’t wait!

Head on over to Paper Dolls to see our guest designers projects.. and hopefully create something to enter in our challenge!

Have a great week!

Oh, Silhouette.. how I love thee… (Bonus: Random Cricut project!)

I got a chance to play around with my Silhouette today! I did another fun and simple print and cut project! I am just LOVING this feature! I made this card in less than 30 minutes after everything was cut out! *high five*

Photobucket

I am going to do a basic print and cut tutorial soon for anyone interested. It’s a little different than my last tutorial. I know there are plenty out there.. but there isn’t one from ME.. lol!

Well, I don’t have much time to chit chat right now… Awww, don’t be sad.. You will be exposed to more of my randomness soon enough!  I am working on a FUN project for the Summer SVG Shindig blog hop AND getting a cute project done for this coming Monday over at Paper Dolls!

So.. on to the card! This is a basic 5×7″ card base.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Cuteness?.. Yup! This was SO simple, but the printed graphics add so much to the look of the card.

If you want to make one, you’re in luck! Because I’m nice enough to tell ya how to do it!….. No, please.. no need to thank me!

You will want to snag THIS set from JazzyPatterns on Etsy! *If it’s sold out, just go to her shop and look for it. It’s called ‘Fun at the Beach’*

In the Silhouette Studio I sized them to the following sizes:

  • Fish – 1.930w
  • Sun – 2.500w
  • Umbrella – 3.000w
  • Starfish – 1.300w

The card is a 5×7 with the printable paper trimmed and layered over it. The ‘wave’ trim was print and cut as sized, however, it will hang off of the mat. This is fine, just go ahead and print and cut. :)

That’s it! I added some stitching and inking and used foam squares to give some depth.

If you are unsure how to print and cut, stay tuned!

 

Now, time for the bonus random Cricut project! I am still buying cartridges, even though most people who read my blog are kinda anti ‘bug’ now since the lawsuits. I personally don’t give a crud, and I like all those cute cartridges! When cricutmachine.com had their recent sale, I picked up a couple new cartridges, one being the Disney Toy Story one! So cute! My son is SO into Buzz Lightyear! And although he has tons of Buzz toys all over the place, I knew he would love this one that mama made! When he woke up from his nap he was so excited to see this guy on my desk!

Photobucket

I mean, he IS pretty exciting! And a total pain in the butt! (like any man, really..) LOL! I cut everything out, and kinda stared at it for a bit. It took about an hour to assemble. Well worth it.. until he had it in his hands for 10 minutes.. he pulled the wings off. *thud* SERIOUSLY, CHILD!!! I took Buzz away to fix him and asked Austin (my son) if he can live in Mommy’s craft area.. he said, “OK.. but where is him’s bed?!”

Have a great weekend, friends!

My first Silhouette project!

Happy Saturday!

I got a chance to play around with the Silhouette a bit more! I made a simple card with some cute sea critters from the Silhouette store! Nothing too exciting, but the cuts are super cute! No sentiment or anything.. mainly because I didn’t have a stamp that would work well with this card. Looks like someone needs to go SHOPPING!

Here it is!

Photobucket

It was kind of a rush job.. afterall, my mom is here visiting for the weekend so I didn’t want to sit over here too long ;)

Here are the files I used:

 

Photobucket

Next time I will keep track of sizes and details to share so you all can replicate something if you’d like! This was simply a post just to share! I have found the Silhouette software very easy to use!

Toodles!


‘With a moo-moo here, and a moo-moo there….’

Lookie here! I created this little barnyard party favor box for SVG Cuts! How cute, right? I really like the way this came out, so much fun! If you want all the details, check out the BLOG POST!

You can take this idea and use it with your own theme! Party, baby shower, sports teams, etc. You really can do so much with these! I bought my little baggies on eBay from THIS SELLER.

Now.. more pictures!

Sharing a card.. and some NEWS!

I made this super cute card last night from SVG Cuts Breezy Backyard Lever Cards collection! It’s simple, but really cute with these great Summer Days papers from Echo Park! So cheery and fun! I think I will make another one with something else in place of the pinwheel… I am not sure why I waited so long for this set! It’s a must have!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

I know, I know..  I totally know what you’re thinking! ‘Tamara, it’s a little card.. you reeeeally do not need a billion pictures of it!’

Yes… yes, I do!

See that cute little sentiment on that cloud?

Photobucket

Yeah, this one..

Photobucket

See those stamps behind the card with the cute sentiment?…

Photobucket

Well….. Kimberly from My Craft Spot designs ‘em… she also sells pretty little vintage bakers twine and gorgeous vintage ribbons! I posted about some I got back in the fall HERE Little did I know when I ordered the Glossy Accents and ribbon from her, that in March I would get an email from her asking me to be on her DESIGN TEAM!

Oh, and of course I said yes, I know.. I’m crazy! But my schedule has opened up some so I will have plenty of time to get all my various DT projects done! I’m actually ahead on some, so that’s even better, LOL!

My first DT project for MCS goes up on the 25th! Whoo-hoo!

Until next time,

Berry Sweet

I came across this pattern today after I saw someone make these for the FCCB challenge this week. Download StrawberryBoxPatternwithpicture[1] .. and HAD to make them! I edited it in Photoshop and then created an SVG for it. It worked pretty good! Sooooo….. while slackin’ on cleaning I made this:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Isn’t it just soooo berry cute? I don’t have any candy here, but these would be great for jelly beans, Hershey Kisses, etc. A fun little gift for a friend! I had a lot of fun with these! They are really easy to put together.

You know you wanna make some too!

 

Print and cut out the template.. or, you can use this SVG file I made. It’s not perfect, the tab is a little off, but.. it still works! Download Berry1

Everything else you can get at SVG Cuts!

If you use my SVG file provided. Cut it at 5.844w. I used my swiss dot folder to emboss the berries.  You will need to poke holes or add them in SCAL. Glue your tab to form a cone.. Or.. make yourself a Madonna cone bra, whatever floats your boat! :)

Photobucket

The ‘leaves’ are file 6 in the ‘extras’ folder from the 3D Flower Collection sized at 3.50w. Curl them a little bit.

Photobucket

The box is from the Big Boutique Boxes Collection I used the square flat trio, small.. sized as is in SCAL. I put the sides through my Cuttlebug to emboss. They don’t fit right so I had to do them each twice and turn it around the second time.

Photobucket

Assemble your box as shown in SVG Cuts.

When the berry tab is dry, you can weave your string/twine, etc. through the holes. Pull (not too tight!) and tie closed.

Photobucket

Pull the leaves through. Again, add a hole in SCAL or poke your own.

 

Photobucket

Add the button and the tie a bow! Ta-Da!

Photobucket

Then have fun decorating your box! Add a handle, fence, some little critters… I wanted to add more to mine, but.. I already wasted enough time and my laundry was calling!

I hope you enjoyed! If you want more 3D fruit.. go bug Mary at SVG Cuts Facebook page! LOL! I ran the idea of a 3D fruit with a picnic basket to her, I am sooo hoping she makes some! *fingers crossed*

See you tomorrow for the FCCB Cricut Crawl (Blog Hop!) I created something cute and SUPER easy!

Psssst…. YOU.. over here… I gotta lil’ sumthin’ for ya!

A lil’ sumthin’ made with pretty paper and let’s not forget…. some GIVEAWAY’S!!!!! Yeah, buddy!
