Cricut Explore: Jasmine Layout


, , , ,



Back to my Disney layouts! I still have a few characters left that only have one good picture to be scrapped. This time it’s the lovely Jasmine. We met her at the Akershus breakfast in Epcot. I have since learned that when my sons are asked to choose between eating and meeting characters, they will choose eating every time so we now pick cheaper breakfast options.

I didn’t want to use the Cricut carts for all my Disney layouts because I wanted my pages to have a variety of styles. (I also have to justify all that money I spend on other artists’ files by actually using them!) These designs are from Too Cute by Jessica.

I did a little chalking and that’s a genuine Swarovski crystal in her headpiece. Bling!

Cricut Explore: Snowflake Cards


, , , , ,



Two simple snowflake themed cards. On the first one, I stamped and embossed a bunch of snowflakes. Some of the stamps did better than others. I may just have to stop buying the Recollections clear stamps. They don’t stamp as clear as other brands. The Merry Christmas was cut out of blue and silver foil paper. I don’t remember which cartridge the design is from. Sorry.

The snowflakes on the second card were cut using a Martha Stewart punch and the Explore. They were from a variety of cartridges. The title was cut with the Silhouette Cameo.

Silhouette Cameo: Shadow Box Christmas Card


, , , , ,



I made several of these shadow box cards this year. They were very simple to cut and put together, and they fold easily into an envelope. They are Lori Whitlock designs, and they are available through her shop and at the Silhouette Online Store. I hope she does some for other holidays, too.

I just passed 150 posts! Sometimes I feel like I don’t get a chance to do as much crafting as I would like, but the fact that I have done at least 150 projects I liked enough to share with an audience makes me feel better.

Silhouette Cameo: Christmas Treat Boxes


, , , ,



I made these boxes for the kids at school. They are designs from the Silhouette Online Store. They were very fast and easy to assemble. I used the default size and they were big enough to hold a large handful of Kisses and a giftcard.

Cricut Explore: Peek a Boo Santa Cards


, , , ,



The Santa Claus is from My Scrap Chick. I chalked up his rosy cheeks and nose, and I stamped and embossed a simple sentiment.

Silhouette Cameo: Thanksgiving Treats

I made Thanksgiving treat boxes for the my sons’ classmates. I forgot to take a picture before I delivered them to school, though. There was also a lady pilgrim. They are designs from the Silhouette Online Store. They were big enough to hold snack bags of Teddy Grahams, Goldfish and Mini Oreos.
