Out with the Old, In with the New

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time to say good bye to 2016 and I have the perfect Digital Delights by Louby Loo image to say farewell.  Challenge #112 at Cut it Up Challenge Blog is sponsored by Digital Delights and the theme is Out with Old, In with the New.

The "good bye" sentiment is computer generated.  My OLD supplies include the patterned papers from Paper Studio's Eat Cake stack, and my Jaded Blossom Stitched Rectangle dies (oh, and my Copic markers).  The "Celebrate" word die and shadow is new from Neat and Tangled and the "curly border" die is new from Taylored Expressions.

Come on over to Cut it Up and share your new crafty goodies by joining Challenge #112.

Digital Delights by Louby Loo is offering a $5 voucher as the prize for this challenge.

Happy New Year!!!!!

Delightful Challenge #17

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's the 4th Thursday of the month so time for another Delightful Challenge sponsored by
Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

I've made a gift tag to celebrate the New Year.  It would be perfect to add to any hostess gift you're sharing.  I've used the pre colored version of New Year Baby Snow.

Funny story:  I had a different image and it was all laid out and ready to color.  Then I realized that the image said 2016!!!  Oops, that wasn't going to work so I quickly downloaded the pre colored version of Baby Snow and my project was saved.

I used Jaded Blossom's newest die sets, Scalloped Hexagons, Stitched Hexagons, and Words to create my tag.  I cut two words and off set them to make them pop a little more.

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you'll play along with our challenge by adding  your project using the link above.

Wishing you a Very Happy New Year 2017!!

We have a line-up of DT members from both teams sharing Holiday Treats and we are hoping you enjoy them all. Our teams even had to play Secret Santa and send their project to a fellow team member as a surprise. It's all about the joy of giving this holiday season!

How about some prizes?
 Georgiana is offering a surprise goodie pack.  And there is more blog candy being offered along the way.

I created my project for Katrina on the Cut it Up team.
I hope she enjoys this hot chocolate and treats gift.  I sure had fun creating it for her.

The hot chocolate holder is a Silhouette Design store file.  The Arched Handle box holding the "goodies" is from SVG Cutting Files.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut both files.  The patterned paper is from Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery set.  I also used Jaded Blossom Fall Dies (sign),  Mini Tag Dies 2, Winter Dies (snowflakes), Sweet Treats and Christmas Signs stamp sets.

Dear Santa, I Can Explain!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Challenge #16 is open at Delightful Challenges.  
For my project I used the Reindeer Cuties Clipart set from
Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

The sentiment is from the Winter Fun Sentiment set.
After importing the file into my Silhouette software, I added an offset and then print and cut the image and offset separately so that I could pop the reindeer onto the offset for a little dimension.  I added Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter to the lights and Glossy Accents to the eyes.  The sentiment mat is a stitched rectangle die from Jaded Blossom.  The sequins are from Jillibean.  

Here is what the Cutie file includes:

Have a great day!!

Reindeer Cutie Table Favor

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my day to post a Hostess Monday project at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

For my project I wanted to use one of the SVG Paper Piecing sets.  I chose the Reindeer Cuties.  There are three different cut files, but I decided on the Topper since I love making treat bags.
 I use them as table favors during the holidays.

This file is so easy to cut and assemble.  You will be able to quickly  make them for your entire guest lists.  The only thing I added was an offset on which to assemble the cutie.  I assembled the reindeer on my Silhouette virtual mat and then added the offset.  I then separated all the pieces by color so that I could cut everything at once.  I placed the cutie on the Fancy Topper Die from Jaded Blossom.

Here's the file: 
Reindeer cuties paper piecing set

Note:  there is also a clip art file available if you don't want to paper piece.

I'm sure my family will enjoy their cute and yummy holiday favors.

Thanks for stopping by!

Always Grateful

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my design team day on the Paper Crafting World blog.

For my project I combined two cut files from Paper Crafting World to make a Thanksgiving treat box.

I used the Always Grateful Title cut file for the sign that this cute squirrel is holding.  The Squirrel treat box is a Pazzles Craft Room exclusive.  In the original file the squirrel is holding acorns and there's an acorn handle but I think the sign is a cute substitution, especially if  the project is used as a Thanksgiving table favor.

The two files were cut using my Silhouette.  I added a little inking and Signo white gel pen accents.  I also glittered the leaves using Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting me today.  Be sure to visit Paper Crafting World for a wonderful selection of seasonal and holiday cut files and print and cuts.

Non Traditional Halloween Colors

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for Challenge #108 at the Cut It Up Challenge blog.  Our theme is Halloween but with the twist of using NON-Traditional Halloween colors (and don't forget the Die Cut.)

Here's my card:

The shaped dies are from Jaded Blossom's Halloween Dies and Halloween Dies 2.  The frame and tree is a new die I just purchased.  It's by Taylored Expressions called Shade Tree.  I added some Nuvo Chrystal drops in hot pink to the branches.

I hope you'll join in our challenge when you visit the design team blog to see even more non-traditional Halloween projects.

6 Cards ~ 1 Hour

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love spending time in my craft room and creating special cards.  But, sometimes you just need some quick cards, especially when you're in a time crunch.

For Challenge 15 at Delightful Challenges, I used the Birthday Animals Clipart set from
Digital Delights by Louby Loo. 

Here are the 6 cards I made in less than 1 hour.

I dragged and dropped the clipart file into my Silhouette Studio program, resized the images and then set the mat size to print the images to my computer, of course adding registration marks so my trusty Silhouette would cut the images after they were printed - easy peasy.

I just added a bit of ribbon and some Doodlebug Designs epoxy dots.  The sentiment is also from Digital Delights, Happy Birthday sentiment.

Now I have 6 cards ready to grab when needed.

I hope you'll join in this Challenge.  You have 3 weeks to enter.  It's always ANYTHING GOES, with a stamp (may be digital).  Just click on the link above to join in the fun.

Fall Fun

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my day to post on the Paper Crafting World design team blog.

Today I'm sharing a fall layout.  I don't often make layouts since I'm primarily a card maker, but this adorable file made it pretty easy.
I've used the FALL FUN CROWS layout CF from Paper Crafting World.

I must apologize for the picture quality.  It was a really dreary day so there was no place to photograph the layout to get a good picture.

Everything was cut on my Silhouette.  I just added a little inking and a torn paper bottom border.  Except for the photo mats, everything else is in the cut file - LOVE IT!

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope autumn has finally come to your town.

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today we're using pumpkins on our Cut it Up Challenge projects.  I'm using an adorable Nerdy Pumpkin, part of the Kawaii Nerdy Halloween set from SVG Cutting files.

Harvest Blessings

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn to post on the Paper Crafting World blog.

We are welcoming a beautiful fall morning here in northern California which is much appreciated after last week's heat wave!  I love the colors of fall so choosing papers to create fall projects is always a joy.

Today I'm using the Acorns N Leaves cut file from Paper Crafting World.  I used papers from my stash and cut everything on the Silhouette.  I just did some inking on the edges, rolled and curled the leaves and added a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Happy Fall stamp set.

Thanks for stopping in today.
