Grinch Poop!

Good morning! I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday! Especially those of us who are spending time with our families. :) Today I thought I'd share some treats I made for my nephews using some Jaded Blossom stamps!

I saw Trixie over at Pink Glitter Studio use this adorable Grinch cutting file and just had to find it and use on these treats, because my sister says my nephews can be little stinkers! (They're always perfect when I'm around.) You can find Trixie's original post here
 The Grinch file can be found at over at Creating in Carolina. And the cut file can be found here!
I used the offset feature to create a full shadow around the brim of my little santa hat. And I also didn't add the blue pieces of the eyes.
 I used the Christmas Poop stamp set for the Grinch saying and stamped it onto the top layer of the Flag Dies. And of course, that perfect little Fancy Topper Die had to top off my little treat bag. :)
I also used the 3x5 clear bags and the Echo Park Season's Greetings 6x6 paper stack for my patterned paper.

Well, I hope the rest of your Sunday goes great! And if I'm not back before Tuesday, Merry Christmas!

Wishing you a Merry, Merry Christmas!

Good morning! And it's time for another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post!
There's a little less than a week before Christmas! I know my kiddos are excited, but I just can't wait either! I love Christmastime because of what it means to the kids. :) So today, I'm sharing a quick card made with some digi papers and some cutting files.
 I created the base of the card within Silhouette Studio. 
 The snowflake is from the Snowflake cutting files. And the banner is from the Sentiment Spots 1 cutting files. And this PERFECT Christmas paper? From the new Vintage Christmas digital paper set. This is my ALL-TIME favorite color palette!

Winter Wonderland!

Good morning! Are you all ready for another What's New Wednesday over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons?!

Today, I get to share one of the new files with you! And these files are SO super cute! I've been waiting for some new snowmen and these are absolutely perfect!

And with's my project for today! 
I used the Snow Globe cutting file that was offered over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons as a free file a few weeks ago. Now you can purchase it here. :) I used Silhouette Studio to create a shaped card by flipping and welding the base of the snow globe.

Season's Greetings and a video tutorial!

Good morning! And happy Wednesday! :) 
This morning I have another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post to share!
And I even have a video! :)
This super cute little elf is from the new Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Santa's Helpers cut files! Isn't she just the cutest?! I created the card base within Silhouette Studio. I just modified a label into a standard A2 sized card. The top layer was created with the internal offset feature and then I filled it with a pattern from the Christmas Brights Peppermint & Gingham collection.
 Then I sampled a couple different colors from the background paper and used those for the green elements of my cutting file. The snowflake and tag are both from my Silhouette library.

Happy Holidays

Can you believe it's December?! I can't! This year has just flown by, I've been super busy and I can't wait for it to end! :)

Since it's the 1st of December, the holiday is in full swing. There's only a few short weeks until Christmas (and my much needed vacation) and so I thought I'd share a holiday card this morning. 
I tried my hand at triple stamping with a background stamp, and it really didn't work the way I wanted it to. I guess it's probably because I wanted to emboss the snowflakes on this gorgeous Market Street background stamp. :) So I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to try and get it to work. It didn't work as perfectly as I had hoped, but it just makes it more original. :)
