I {heart} you very much...

YAY for Thursdays! (Hey, I work full-time and so this is one day closer to Friday!)

I finally had time to create something for a challenge this week! I know I've been MIA lately, but it's been busy both at work and at home. I feel like I might be getting back into the crafty swing of things. :) I was able to totally clean and organize my scrap room, and if I post some pics, you'll totally understand why it took so long!

Anyhoo, I decided to join in on the very first SVG Cutting Files challenge! I recently discovered Annie's files through Candace and Michelle, the gals of Jaded Blossom. And these files are so super cute! (Oh, and on Monday don't forget to stop by Jaded Blossom for some sneaky peeks of the new release coming up!)

I decided to use the My Heart file for today's project. I used a white A2 sized card base and aded a couple layers from a shape in my Silhouette Library, and cut everything with my Silhouette Cameo.

The patterned background paper is from the digital Echo park Love Story kit that I purchased from Jessica Sprague. I printed it on American Craft white cardstock with my Epson Workforce 1100 printer.

You are my superman!

Good morning! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post!
And today, I have a SUPER cute card to share using the SuperHeros Trio cutting file and some My Creative Time stamps!

Oh my goodness...just look at this adorable little "peachy" Superhero!
The kraft card base is a simple 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch square card. I added some light blue pattern paper for my sky. 
I had to create a relatively small superhero because I didn't want him to be larger than the background buildings. :) Since he was only sized at a little over 3 inches, I had to print and cut the Superman logo on his uniform, because it was WAY to small to cut as perfect as I wanted it to. I did paper piece the rest of my little superhero though.

I'm a thief...

Good morning...or afternoon! Just another super quick card to share today, because once I saw these cute little files, I had to snatch them up and cut them out!

This cute little thief is from the Little Bandits cut file over at SVG Cutting Files. I did change it up a bit and added a heart from the Birds of a Feather Hearts file, so it would go with the sentiment that I had in mind. :) And of course this sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Cheesy Pick Ups stamp set. Perfect, right?!
I used Silhouette Studio to create the card base and layers. I cut everything out with my Silhouette Cameo.

It's a Mickey Mouse party!

Good morning! Today I'm sharing yet another part of my nephews birthday creations! I use my Silhouette Studio and Cameo to create his birthday invitations! :)

I used a Mickey Mouse SVG file that I found online here and used the print and cut feature! The print and cut feature makes everything so easy! I love it!

I used Silhouette studio to creat a simple rounded square and then designed the front and inside. I also added a border.
Everything was printed on Epson Presentation Matte Photo paper with my Epson Workforce 1100 printer. I love the vibrant colors!
Now...I hope I can make it to his birthday, there's a storm headed into Utah and it's bringing a lot of SNOW with it!

Happy Thursday!

Happy Birthday with a cherry on top!

Good morning! Wow...two posts in two days! I'm on a roll!

Today I have one more birthday card to share. A card for my mom. :) I used some of the newer Jaded Blossom stamps and dies, and a freebie cut file from SVG Cutting Files. I love this yummy cupcake, and it is perfect with this sentiment!
I used the Silhouette software and a basic shape in my Silhouette Library to create the card base and layer, and to cut out my super cute little cupcake. :)

I added some glossy accents to make my cherry too!

Happy Birthday Braxton!

Today, (although it's a little late) I've got a super special card to share with you. It's my youngest nephew's birthday! And he is completely into Mickey Mouse, so I had to include that adorable little mouse on his birthday card!

Happy Birthday Braxton! I hope you have a GREAT day...and Aunt Jeanne will see you soon! ;)
I created this card base in Silhouette Studio using the Layered Labels 1 cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I just duplicated it, flipped it and then welded the two shapes together. I created a couple smaller layers with the offset feature and used the rounded rectangle tool to create the rectangular shape.
This perfect little Mickey Mouse die cut is an SVG file that I found online here.
I got this matching paper over at Peppermint Creative. It's the Magic Memories paper set. I printed it on Epson Matte Presentation paper with my Epson 1100 Workforce printer. I LOVE how the colors just pop on this paper!
