Miss Kate Cuttables Train Birthday Card

Miss Kate Cuttables Train Birthday Card

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun card to share with you, but before I share my card, make sure you head over to the Miss Kate website and pick up the freebie of the day!

My grandson’s birthday is coming up and he loves everything trains. So I knew I wanted to create a card with a train on the front and Miss Kate had the perfect train.

Here’s the card I created for my grandson. I used Stampin Up Cardstock for the base of my card. I also used Stampin up Cardstock to cut out the train. Stampin up Cardstock cuts really well in the Silhouette Cameo. I added some green striped paper to the bottom portion of the card.

I wanted the train to have some movement so what better than an Action Wobble. I wanted the train to appear that it was chugging down the track so I cut two base pieces of the train and adhered the black track portion to one and then glued it to the front of the card. Then I used the other train base to put the pieces of the train together. I trimmed off the track portion from this train base and added my Action Wobble.

I used lots of dimensional adhesive and added some tiny metal brads to the front part of the train. For my sentiment I used the CardzTv stamp set called “This and That”.

That’s my card for today. Make sure you check out Miss Kate on Facebook for some fabulous inspiration! Have a great week!

Mini Milk Carton Treat Boxes

Mini Milk Carton Treat Boxes

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Today I just have to share this little project with you. While at my scrappy friends house she had the cutest little mini milk carton sitting on her shelf. Of course I asked her how she did it. She said it’s a die from Stampin’ Up. So being the bestie that she is she let me borrow it. Thanks Sherrie!!

Mini Milk Carton

Look how cute!! I used some scraps that I had left from some other projects. The one on the left is created using some leftover gorgeous Graphic 45 By the Sea papers. The one in the middle was created using some October Afternoon Happy Homemaker paper and the one on the right was created with some solid card stock and a strip of design paper from Graphic 45 Good Ol’ Sport. I just added some twine, buttons, and punched flowers. I used some tiny clothespins at the top to keep them closed.

I thought these would be cute favors for a July 4th Picnic done up in some fun red, white and blue papers. Well the die is no longer available from Stampin’ Up but no worries, you can make your own mini milk carton.

Can you tell which one of the three mini milk cartons was created without using the die?

Mini Milk Carton

Let’s have a fun little contest. Of course I’ll have a prize. Leave me a comment on this post telling me which mini milk carton you think was created without using the die. I will draw a random winner from all the comments that were correct and send out a prize.

I will draw the winners name on Sunday, May 18 and announce the winner on Monday, May 19 here on my blog.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to leave me a comment with your guess!!

Out on a Limb and Xyron Co-Blog Hop Day 3

Out on a Limb and Xyron Co-Blog Hop Day 3

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 3 of the Out on a Limb and Xyron Co-Blog Hop.
Did you know that Out on a Limb is the sister company to Miss Kate Cuttables? All of the super cute images at Miss Kate are available pre cut and ready for your scrapbook.

We were each given a kit from Out on a Limb Scrapbooking. All of the page kits are so adorable. I received the Dear Santa I Can Explain page kit.

Each kit comes with everything you need to complete an amazing two page layout. And the best part is everything is pre cut for you.

These page layouts go together really quick and easy. Especially using some wonderful adhesive from Xyron. For my project I used the glue stick and the 3 inch sticker maker.

CoBlogHop1

The glue stick worked great for adhering the photo mats to the base page. I love the corner shape of the glue stick. It works really good to make sure the corners of your photo mats don’t peal up.

CoBlogHop2

The 3 inch sticker maker is the best for putting together the die cuts and then what’s even better is once they are together you can put the die cut through the machine and it’s ready to adhere to your page! Easy peasy!

CoBlogHop3

Here’s my completed two page layout from Out on a Limb Scrapbooking. I did add some glossy accents to the lens of the glasses and to the bucket of coal. I also added some dew drops to the holly berries.

Out on a Limb Kit

There you have it! Make sure and check out the Miss Kate Cuttables blog and the Xyron blog for more great layouts and prizes too!

Graphic 45 By the Sea Scrapbook Page Layout

Graphic 45 By the Sea Scrapbook Page Layout

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a a wonderful weekend! Today I have a scrapbook page layout to share with you.

Graphic 45 By the Sea collection is one of my favorites. My niece sent me a photo of her in a fabulous retro sailor hat. When I saw her photo I had to create a layout with the gorgeous By the Sea papers.

Graphic 45 By the Sea

This paper and photo are perfect together. I mounted the page layout onto some medium weight chipboard so I will be able to display it. I layered several of the papers and placed the photo on some black cardstock. I added some Stampin Up Burlap trim along the bottom as well as some gorgeous lace that reminded me of clam shells.

I used a few of the chipboard elements and added an eyelet to one of the tags and tied some May Arts twine at the top.

Graphic 45 By the Sea  2

I fussy cut one of the starfish out and used my Wink of Stella clear pen to make the starfish sparkle. I inked all of the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.

This paper is amazing and I had so much fun putting together this layout of my gorgeous niece!

Have a great week!
