MIA but I'm Back

I have been gone for a couple of weeks due to surgery on my knee.  Life is back to normal and I have been able to get in my craft room.  I wanted to do this cute project I saw on Pinterest while I was recuperating.  My granddaughter loaned me her IPad, so I would have some entertainment during my down time.  I made a box to hold some of the Christmas cards I wanted to get started on.  The cards are A2 and I just layered some Christmas DSP from Stampin' Up and cut a strip of Real Red to go across the top of the DSP and then I used the 2 3/8" scallop punch on Real Red cardstock and a 2" Whisper White circle punch.  I stamped off the tree in Old Olive and stamped it on the circle and then stamped the sentiment in Real Red over the tree.  I used Festival of Tree stamp set on the cards.  The box is made from a video I saw on Pinterest.  This lady has a wonderful site and I hope you will visit it and make the box to hold your cards, tags, etc. Whatever you need a box for.  Decorate it anyway you want. Please visit here to see the video and I hope you have fun making this fun project.  You could also make the boxes and label them with different cards in it for future use.  Just have fun.  She is a very thorough arts/craft person.  Check out her complete blog.

Happy Stamping and Crafting,

John's Moneyholder

This one was made for my son-in-law. This money holder was also made on the Silhouette as was the celebrate.   I used Crumb Cake and Basic Black cardstock from SU.  This cardstock cuts so nice on the Cameo.  I used Tombow Glue to put the letters on the front and used circle punches to make the little button and tied some rafia thread in the holes.  Really quick and simple as I said in the previous entry.  This file can be purchased at the Silhouette for only .99 cent.  It is so much fun to work on the Cameo.  Life just simpler in the craft department for me.  Hope you will make some.

Happy Stamping and Crafting!

Makayla's Birthday Card moneyholder

This little moneyholder was made for our granddaughter that is turning 12 (going on 20).  She was at the beach on her birthday so we didn't get to see her.  When she came home she got this with her birthday money in it.  She loves the color pink as you can see by the color chosen for the card.  The holder was from a cut file on Silhouette Cameo Store and the numbers and saying were also cute from images from the Silhouette Store.  This helps making the card so easy.  Glitter was also used to fancy it up some. I think she will like this alot.  If you don't have a Silhoutte and have been thinking about getting one, don't hesitate any longer.  It is really worth having and saves a lot of time in making cards, vinyl sayings and making stencils to etch on glass.  I just love, love, love my Silhouette!  LOL!
