Fun with the Silhouette Cameo!

Happy Friday! I have finally completed the big project I've been working on for the past 4 months, and just in time too! Yesterday was the Giant's birthday and as a gift, I made him scrapbooks (a two volume set) of his 38 years. It was definitely a labor of love... 240+ pages (front & back). Here are some of my favorite cuts that I created with my Cameo. I am grateful to have had the Cameo for this project! It enabled me to create a truly personalized gift. The custom images below were all in jpg format. For images from the Silhouette Store, I included the image numbers so you can find them if desired.

1. Propeller hat from Tweedledee & Tweedledum-Alice in Wonderland

Mini Book with Webster's Pages

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a mini book I created with Webster's Pages Alison Kreft's "Hello World," "Pitter Patter"' "Welcome Love" and "You Are Loved." Those wood veneer pieces were just screaming "mini book" to me! This was created for The City's Design Team. 




Thanks for stopping by and as always, stay scrappy!

Hanging Mason Jar Lights

Happy Friday! It's been a while since I last posted but for good reasons. Remember that scrapbooking store I love (www.scrappininthecity.com)? Well, I am working there part-time now and loving it! How could I not when I get to be surrounded by cool product and talented people all day?! I have also been working on a big project for the Giant for his upcoming birthday in June for the last few weeks and can't post the layouts...yet. I did, however, get around to this month's Scrappin' in the City DT challenge-using washi & sequins. I decided to go off the page with these easy to make mason jar lights. No doubt you've seen the hundreds of variations on these easy to make home decor accents on Pinterest.




I poured some leftover glitter (a mix of Martha Glow-in-the Dark and tinsel glitter), in the jars and layered Doodlebug sequins on top (they come packaged in adorable test tubes). The washi tape was a combination of Doodlebug and My Mind's Eye and of course you can find mason jars at many retailers. I used a thin wire to wrap around the jar's lip and created a handle. Easy peasy! The twine around the top is leftover Strawberry Stripe and Sea Foam from The Twinery. The tea lights are battery operated.

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!
