My First Silhouette Cameo Project

Okay so here it is my first real project.
Can you guess what it is?

It's a Chapstick Stick card!! I got it from the Silhouette Store. I figured this will be great for a little Valentine's gift for someone. You could stamp a sentiment or write a message on the inside.

Hope you like it and I will me back tomorrow with a Cricut project.

My New Toy

So I am back to show my new toy I had my husband buy mr as an early Valentine's present.

Here it is........
Yep, it's a Silhouette Cameo and I LOVE IT. Don't get me wrong I still love my cricut and will still use it a lot because I love it and have spent way too much money on it not to use it.
I really like the Cameo although there is a some getting use to, like the noise it makes when it cuts. It sounds like it's dying or something. It also cuts very nice.
I mostly got it because of the reviews I read plus I love the idea of the Silhouette Studio store ( I have actually spent hours looking through it and every week they give away a free design and have 50 cents clearance weekly) and just buying what I need. I have already used my $10 gift card that came with it and I got 100 free designs with the machine.

So here is the first thing that I made. I think this is the first thing most people make when the get it.
 It's one of the free designs that comes with it, it's called the control panel. I used the heart paper for Valentine's Day and will change it for any holiday.

Check back tomorrow, I will be posting a project that will make you want to get a Silhouette.

Please let me know if you have any questions about it.

Got a SmashBook

Hey everyone. I just bought a pink Smashbook and have a question for everyone who has one. I am really excited to start but I'm also a little intimidated in starting it because I'm not sure what to put in it, I want it to be good but I'm not sure want to put in it. So my question is, what type of stuff do you put in yours?

Thanks if you can help/

Also please come back tomorrow or Wednesday (science fair time and trying to finish it up) because I have a new toy to share.

Have a good day!!

Valentine Wreath

Hi everybody, I'm back. I've had a lot going on with the holidays and everything and to be honest I kinda lost my mojo for crafting but today is my day over at She's a Sassy Lady. So hopefully I've got the juices flowing and will have more projects to share with you.
So here is my project. Hope you like it. 
To make this I used a styrofoam wreath, white, pink and red cardstock (7 of each), hot glue gun, a box of corsage pins, a paper roller tool, Ranger Inkssentials blending tool, Martha Stewart craft paint in peppermint bark (love this paint!!!) and the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (you can order it here). I was going to use the pink glue sticks but decided to just use clear.
The first thing I did was paint the wreath pink just in case you see through the flowers once you pin them flowers on the wreath.
Next it is time to cut the roses from page 68 with the shift on. I had 7 pieces of 8x11.5 cardstock and i used all the pieces. I got 12 roses out of every sheet and I cut them at 2.5 inches. I wound up with 252 flowers which was WAY to many.
On the white flowers I decided to ink the edges with CTMH Hollyhock ink (you can order it here) and the Ranger Inkssentials blender tools.

Now comes the most time consuming part is to roll the roses and hot glue them together.
Here are all the flowers. I did not roll all the flower cause I figured I had enough. I still did not use all of these.
It's pretty fun attaching the flowers to the styrofoam but please be careful cause the pins go all the way through (I stuck myself plenty of times, OUCH). I used pliers to bend the pins on the back on the wreath.

Once again here is the finished wreath.
I am not going to lie this took a lot of time, like days, but I feel like it was totally worth it. I really hope you like it.
Please feel free to ask me any questions.
