Monster Party

Our Little Monster is 5…and he wanted a Monster theme birthday party!! So here’s a peek at his party! I loved seeing him get so excited over the homemade goodies and decorations.   At one point, I thought– what am I doing?  He isn’t going to care if we have monster mouths or party hats—and then a few minutes later he discovered the monster mouths I made along with the party hat–and he had to try them on immediately.  He then came running towards me with a hug telling me I was the best mom ever! Definitely WORTH IT! First and foremost, Jaxen wanted a Birthday Banner- He’s seen me make them for Thanksgiving and Christmas so he wanted his own Monster Banner.  He even knew where he wanted to hang it– so I apologize for the bad lighting....

Layout & a Free SVG

Posted by on Jan 28, 2012 in Cameo, Crafting, Free, Layouts, SVG Files, Uncategorized | 7 comments

Hi Everyone!! I have been playing around on the computer- and playing around with making my own svgs to cut on the Cameo–and having a ball! I thought it would be fun to see if I could make a custom title, that I’d be able to share with you–   Isn’t that exciting? Well–with this title, I put together this SIMPLE but sweet Layout of me and my new 5 year old! I wanted to add a couple pictures of Jaxen being silly- The top one is one of us, very late at night-when he tiptoed down to see me way after bed time- to some snuggle time with me.  It was one of those nights, I won’t ever forget- so please forgive my tired makeup-less face The other picture is a ‘Classic Jaxen” photo- if he even bothers...

Kissy Lips & Free Shamrock SVG

Posted by on Jan 27, 2012 in Cameo, Crafting, Free, Party Ideas, SVG Files | 9 comments

Happy Friday, and a big TGIF!! Today I have a super quick project for you today- using an SVG file.  You could also use any pair of lips on a cartridge you might have.  You have to add a small circle to the middle to add a sucker stick– Easy Peasy! I made enough of these to take to my daughter’s  class for Valentine’s Day and I also made some Mustache ones for my son’s class. I stamped the lips with a sentiment from Say it Sweet and did some quick white pen stitching.  My favorite pen to use for white stitching is the white Signo pen. Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Don’t forget to link up this week! Also–to help get you ready for the next holiday– St. Patrick’s Day I am including a free SVG for all of...

Kisses For You

Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday! I was munching on some hershey hugs the other day when I was making Nugget Wrappers the other day for Valentine’s Day using the Pink by Design It’s a Wrap stamp set and die-  and I thought…wouldn’t it be cute if we had little tags to put on these little kisses? So…I measured the bottom of the kiss- 3/4 of an inch.  Okay!  I made a circle on my silhouette screen- that measured 3/4 of an inch.  Easy Peasy.  (You could do this with any die cutting machine probably or even a punch!) Next I loaded the machine with adhesive backed paper- and cut out a bunch of circles. Then I used Pink by Design stamps you might already own  to decorate the bottoms!! I used the Small Banners set and the Labels stamp set–...
