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!

“Tamara, seriously.. Create a Critter AGAIN?!”

Yup.. again.

I big pink fluffy heart LOVE them dern critters!

I had some styrofoam balls laying around and decided to do something with them. I decided to make a cute little tree for no reason at all, just for fun!

Photobucket

After I made it, I thought.. wow, that looks weird, LOL! It needs a branch or something…. and it’s pretty heavy for a ‘paper’ project because of the styrofoam and hot glue all over it. My son thinks it’s a bat! he whacked himself in the head with it! LOL!

Photobucket

The tree needed something… anything, really. It was kinda lame by itself.. I mean, it would look CUTE in my daughter’s owl themed room! Too bad the color’s don’t match. I decided to pull out the good ol’ Create a Citter and make some animals treat bags like my Springtime Buddies that I made awhile ago. I do love those little bags! I decided to go with a fall theme (Hello…..! Can we get through spring and summer first!?) I know, fall, really?… But look how cute!

Photobucket

The little fox makes me smile.. so cute!

This would be great for birthday party favors! Well, if a tree and animals fit your theme! Jungle theme? Fun stuff!

And now for more pictures.. what? Did you think you could get away with only a few photos from me? Ha! You sooo cra-zay!

Photobucket

You might have noticed that not all my critters are ‘decapitated’.. sometimes it just won’t work out for that particular die cut, so you can just adhere the bottom half of your critter to the bag.. OR, you can glue it to the back of the bag instead. For this project, only my raccoon worked.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Umm….. Yes, I have issues.. and my son asked me for a dinosaur! So.. Mr. Dino joined the Fall Friends party!

Photobucket

“Awwww.. that’s cute”…

Sure it is…. Photobucket

I know.. I know.. I couldn’t help it. That’s my dark side coming out… and it made my kids laugh!

Photobucket

Create a Critter, Straight From The Nest, and Forever Young cartridges and this file created by moi! Download 1springtime_buddies_bag_HappyLifeCraftyWife This is an SVG file. Open it and just cut away! to make this to my sizing, set this to cut at 9.630 WIDE. Make sure ‘Keep Proportions’ is checked. (If you have problems downloading it, email me with my contact link over there to the right… and I will send you the file!) Typepad download is wonky sometimes!

*** If you use my SCAL file and share anything you made with my file PLEASE link back to my blog. Do not post the file on your website/blog.. simply link back to this post. Thank ya! ***

For the tree.. get a 3″ strofoam ball and a hot glue gun! The leaves are all cut from SFTN from ‘branch 1′ cut at 2 3/4″. Cut a bunch.. I think I cut them 35 times? Glue them all over your ball, and burn your fingers while doing it.. I did it several times!

After that cut flowers from the shadow of ‘flower 5′ on FY. I cut 3 for each flower sized at 1 1/4″, 1″ and 3/4″. Layer them and fold the petals up. I made 6 of them for my tree.

The base of the tree is a rectangle rolled up and glued to the bottom. I did this before I added the leaves.

Photobucket

That’s it for the tree! Please see THIS POST on how to make the bags with animals!

Here are the sizes for the animals I used:

Fox – 3 1/2″

Owl – 3 1/2″

Squirrel – 3 3/4″

‘coon – 4″

Dinosaur – 10″

What? You don’t want to add the dinosaur? Psssh! You’re no fun! *wink*

Happy crafting!! You all might be seeing some changes to the blog soon.. I’m ready for some fun summer colors! Yay!

Toodles!


Father’s Day project for RAH Scrapbooking!… And some happenings with me..

Hey all! Are you having a great week so far? Mine has been a little stressful.. but good! The weather is beautiful (well, not for two days there, but the nice weather is back!) I’m ready for summer nights and relaxing outside!

Well, Father’s Day is coming up and I’ve been thinking of a few Father’s Day gift ideas.. with paper, of course!

I created this neat-o workbench for Right at Home Scrapbooking. It doubles as a small giftbox and a card! Thanks to the amazing Thienly for the inspiration with her teacher’s desk!

Here it is! I didn’t add anything to the card area yet.. or the drawers.

Now… my news.  No.. I am not joining another design team, seems like everytime I say I have ‘news’ or an ‘announcement’ it ends up being another DT, LOL! Quite the opposite, actually. I’ve left the SVG Cuts design team. There was a bit of a conflict with an upcoming business venture of mine (No.. I’m not going to start selling SVG files). I can’t get into details about it right now, but anyone who follows SVG Cuts and my blog will ‘get it’ in the next month or so.. I hope you all continue to follow me and my crafts.. Please stick around to see what my upcoming news will be! I’m very excited about it! Hopefully will be making the announcement in the next month or so!

 Alrighty, crafty friends! I will ‘talk’ to ya later!


Teacher Book Cabinet – An SVG Cuts project!

Hey all! I wanted to share this cute little book cabinet I made! Did you know teacher appreciation week is NEXT week? All of us SVG Cuts designers made some great projects to inspire you! Now you can get busy crafting this weekend! Whoo-hoo!

I was going to keep this simple and just do books.. then, I thought a cabinet would be cute. After having it all complete (so I thought), I felt it was missing something.. so, I added a pencil holder to the side. Then… I felt the top needed something, so I threw on a lunch bag! Ta-da! I really, really loved making this and had a lot of fun with it!

OK.. now on to a pile of photos.. you know how I roll! LOL!

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!

Bunny-licious.

So, while I was busy making my design team project for Fantabulous Cricut I got sidetracked when I remembered a kit I saw LAST year. It was a kit with little cups and precut ears, nose, etc. to glue on and make a bunny container. I started to brainstorm and decided to whip one up real quick. This took me no time at all to put together once I cut my pieces. So fun and simple.. I can totally see making a pleathora of these just because I can whip them out so fast! You know the saying ‘Multiply like rabbits..” LOL!

Here is today’s paper cuteness!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Best of all.. I used Sure Cuts a Lot basic shapes.. that’s it!

Here’s how:

 

You will need Sure Cuts a Lot.. not sure if Make The Cut has a basic shapes library? If you use Cricut design studio, I am sure you can figure this out with some cartridge shaes! Heck, you could even cut shapes out by hand, folks! *high five* You will also need a container of some sort. I used a breadcrumb container so the cut sizes I give you are going by that.

First, cut your container down to about 3″ tall.

Photobucket

Hmm, I have a sudden craving for chicken parmesean!

Anyhow.. cut a piece of paper 3.5″ high and 11″ wide. Wrap it around the container gluing as you go. I used hot glue… and I burnt myself.. and my glue gun got stuck to my comfy velour pants. Yes, I am totally messy and spazzy (is that a word? LOL!) when I craft…

…… and yes, I wear velour pants. They’re comfy, Mmm-kay?!

Moving on…

Did you cut your paper yet?.. Get on it!

Photobucket

Ink up the edges if you want.. I think it really helps the project stand out a bit more. Plain ol’ white was a little boring.

Cut and assemble -

ALL SHAPES CAN BE FOUND IN THE SCAL LIBRARY UNDER ‘BASIC SHAPES’

Ears: Oval shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size 2 ovals at 4.00h and 1.50w. The inside of the ears are 2.730h and 1.00w.

Nose: Rounded heart shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 1.715w and 1.097h.

Bow: Rounded square shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 4.00w and 1.50h. Kinda crinkle it in the middle a bit. Cut a piece of paper at half an inch wide and 1.5″ long. This will wrap around the crinkled part of the bow.

Eyes: Two ovals, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size one at .3355 and .500h. Size the other at .291w and .433h. I used my white ink pen to add a catchlight in the eye. Glossy accents over the eyes will look great!

For the whiskars I just cut thin strips with my scissors… crinkle them up and glue them on!

To create pink cheeks, use your ink pad or dab some ink on a Q-tip and rub it on. You can also use paper chalk.

I am thinking of having my girls make one for each of their teachers and I will fill them with some yummy cookies! It’s the perfect size to stack cookies in.

As always, I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial! If so, please click the ‘LIKE’ button for Facebook!

Annnnd.. I really need to do a post with some questions answered and other random things I’ve been meaning to post. Maybe today? I promise I’m not ignoring all your emails and comment questions.. OK.. maybe YOUR’S! lol j/k. I’m really not that mean… really. OK.. I have nothing to do tonight.. soooo.. I will be back with a long rambling post for you all that have been waiting to hear back from me.

And can I just whine a minute?.. Of course I can.. it’s my blog.. neener-neener!

It’s snowing.. again! I kid you not, we’ve gotten more snow since ‘spring’ started than we have all winter! Ok.. maybe not.. but it’s really close to it! I am beyond ready for warmer weather… only because I have some darling dresses and sandals I am dying to put on my girls! LOL! Go away snow!!

Simple little door hanger to brighten up a sick kiddo’s day!

I am sure you’ve seen my posts on my blog and Facebook with me whining about being sick. Well, my oldest caught the germs! She was the only one who didn’t get sick and I thought she was in the clear. Nope… she woke up this morning with a low fever and headache. She’s been home in bed all day. I thought I would make her a little door hanger to try and cheer her up! I whipped this up super quick while she was napping so it’s not all decorated how I normally would have liked to do.. but it works. :)

I don’t care for the pale yellow on the butterfly’s body, but it was too late to try and fix it… plus I was being lazy about it, LOL!

Cute though! And very easy.. we all love easy, right? You could also make something like this with SVG files if you don’t use cartridges.. or don’t have all of these. I chose to use cartridges just so I can put it out quickly with my Gypsy.

Wanna make one? You need about 20-30 minutes, some cute paper and glue!

 

Cartridges Used :

Tags, bags, boxes and more : Create a Critter : Straight From The Nest : Paper Dolls

 

DO THIS :

Cut the flower from SFTN at 5.25h Use a circle shape punch for the hole OR use your Cricut to cut one. You can also weld a hole on it through the Gypsy.

The stem is cut at 11″h. You will cut two. Make sure you flip one of them if you are using patterned paper (press FLIP on your Cricut). Layer these between a popsicle stick for support (you can layer them without a stick, I think it would be strong enough!) Trim about 3″ off the bottom.

The box is from TBB&M. Cut this at about 11″ wide. I used the giftbag on blackout (so there are no holes) and then I trimmed the handles off. Glue the stem onto the back center.

The fence is cut from Paper Dolls at 1 3/4″h. I trimmed it to fit the front of my box.

Then cut the CaC butterfly at 2.25″h.

Have fun with this! Add a cute animal, etc.! I wish I had more time to play around.. maybe I will make another soon? This would be cute to stitch around the flowers with a sewing machine. :)

It would be really cute to write or stamp something inside the lollipop cover! I got the idea to do this from a design team friend of mine, Amy.. she made THESE for Valentine’s day! Aren’t those so cute?!

Anyhow, I hope you like the little lollipop bouquet! Enjoy!
