Halloween Tree!!!

Halloween Tree!!!
The svg file is from SVGcuts dot com.  This seemed fitting for 2020.  I had previously made 2 for Christmas.  I had wanted to make one of these trees for several years.  But each time I thought about it, it was near Christmas & I didn’t have the time to devote to it.  But 2020 gave me plenty of time, so I made three of them.  😉  The [...]

Dragonfly lanterns

Dragonfly lanterns
I love these.  So I made one for me & one for a friend.  Since this was a Covid-19 quarantine project & I didn’t have any vellum (at least that I could find… we moved a few months ago & I still don’t know where everything is), I used 8 1/2 x 11 inch heat laminating sheets.  Tore them apart (so they were single la [...]

Christmas trees!!!

Christmas trees!!!
I had wanted to make this tree for the past few years.  But it looked like a labor intensive project & I always thought of making it in December… when I didn’t have that much time to spare.  So this became a perfect quarantine 2020 project.  I couldn’t decide whether to make a green one or a white one.  But hey, it’ [...]

Easter Gifts – Post It Note Holders
I wanted to make something for our sisters who live out of town.  So it had to be easy and (fairly) inexpensive to mail, since I was sending eight of them out.  On Pinterest, I found this project & thought it was cute. It also seemed like it would be inexpensive to put together, fairly inexpensive to mail and would withstand going acros [...]

Bag Tags/Toppers

Bag Tags/Toppers
  These bag tags were easy enough to make in Cricut Design Space.  They utilize the PTC (Print Then Cut) feature of Design Space.  I started with the Butterfly Scallop Book Cover from the Elegant Edges cartridge as well as the two bunny images.  Using a square shape, the butterfly was welded out of the base (book cover image).  The im [...]

Twist & Pop card and “Seven Teas for your 70’s”
Another fun card to make and receive! I was inspired by Joy Tracy’s tutorial.  This card was for a milestone birthday (70th) so I included a gift of…  seven different teas… for her 70’s.  I made the box with my Cricut and have made two others.  One was “Nine Teas for your 90’s” and the other one was [...]

Silhouette Mint – make your own stamps!
The Silhouette Mint allows you to make stamps from your own artwork.  I’ve tried a few other tools that promised to do this, but failed miserably (in my experience.)  The Mint delivers on this promise, though! This isn’t the best example, but it’s the first stamp I made.  The original photo is on the left & the stamped [...]

Box cards using SVGCuts files – Part 1
I have made most of our greeting cards, since 1996.  I’d been wanting to try making box cards (cards that fold flat for mailing, but pop up for a 3D card) but figured they would be very time consuming & difficult to make.  NOT TRUE!!!  I found these cards not only easy to make, brilliant in design & have a big wow factor!  I us [...]
