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*


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.





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 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!


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!

    So cute! I can see why you are impressed. I’m going to save my money up for one… Sure miss cutting with MTC on my Cricut!

  2. Stefani says:

    Did you buy the cardstock that you used for the fish as it’s shown (where it is faded in one area) or did you use some type of something to make it that way?
    Also – what tool do you use to stitch? I’ve seen several ways…
    Thanks! Your items are A M A Z I N G! I wish I could be as good as you one day :)

  3. Tamara says:

    Stefani, they print that way! That is what the graphic looks like! Cool, huh? I stitch with my sewing machine..
    Thanks! :)

  4. Thienly says:

    OMGOsh! Stop sharing these goodies with me until I get my Silhouette! I don’t want to see any of this cuteness in front of me! They are the most adorable cutouts and can’t wait to get mine. Seems so long when I have to wait. Soooooo looooong. Not that I probably will have time to play with it anyway – just like all my other toys! LOL! I don’t know how you get so much done in a day! Okay, seriously, you did awesome with this card and how cute it that Buzz? Love it. And, I’m refraining from showing this to my kids – they’re going to want this cartridge.

  5. I do love that buzz… great job! You know you’re my inspiration BFF! (even tho I don’t know you lol) I love to make your stuff.

  6. What a super cute fishy card! And Buzz is very handsome..hopefully he lasted all night! lol..

  7. I need to get me some of dat!

  8. Dawn Middleton says:

    Absolutely gorgeous, the Silhouettes on offer at the moment in the UK, you have inspired me to get one, looking forward to your next tutorial, thanks for showing, Dawn x

  9. Patricia says:

    Lovely card! btw if you like things like Toy Story, check out – there’s loads of amazing svg’s, I made a great Lightening McQueen Card!

  10. Justine Lane says:

    I agree with you about the lawsuits- I don’t give a crap either!! They have a right to protect their copyright… not that I’m going to update my cricut EVER now cuz I don’t want to lose SCAL 2! LOL! Maybe there will be a silhouette in my future…. Adorable projects! Can you share how you are doing the stitching? Do you have a handheld sewing machine? It adds so much to the cards! Please tell me how you do it!

  11. I was just going to ask how you did the stitching too! Do you use a full size or have the handheld Singer one? I was going to get the small one till I read the reviews. They were awful. Adorable card!

  12. Tamara says:

    The sewing is done with a full sized machine! Same one I use to make clothes, etc. Works really good and it’s a cheapie machine by Brother but I’ve sewn like crazy on it for years and it’s held up quite well!
    I’m glad you all like my card!

  13. TeriBeri says:

    WOW…SO CUTE AND FUN!! Love all the bright summer colors. Hugs, T

  14. Bee says:

    LOVE that card, I so want a print and cut feature too! Lol :-D

  15. Kate Smith says:

    The answer to kids and paper is… laminate! I worked in a daycare and we had tons of fun with the paper doll carts, but I had to buy a Xyron machine and laminate everything.
