Moose Kisses

 



Howdy Crafters - 20 more Days Until Christmas! It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - love that song! Anywhoo, here is a present that my grandkids & some friends/family will receive this year-- It's a Hershey Kiss/Gift Card/Card holder. I made it using my Silhouette Portrait. This design is by Jamie Cripps and is half off in the Silhouette Design Store [ends today] and I am saying - easy peasy lemon squeezy to create and assemble. I will be posting several more with different top themes soon. This project holds 5 Hershey Kisses [I only had some bags of silver color wrappers Kisses on hand]. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week ~ Gail ~

SVG Christmas ~ First cut

Welcome Crafters - Well I did it! I bit the bullet and ordered the Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine - Oh my... I cannot believe how this machine cuts intricate detail.

The deer scene was a freebie from Miss Kate's  [thank you very much!] and I must say - after I did a test cut for this paper, followed by cutting this deer scene svg using the Silhouette Portrait--- I was totally amazed!  2 Designs came with this scene  [I have not learned how to separate the 2 designs as I am still learning]

Anywhoo this is my first creation and I am totally happy at this point with the working of this Silhouette Portrait and I am amazed that the machine is very light weight- I also received a great deal on this purchase of this Silhouette Portrait on Cyber-Friday as well as many fabulous EXTRA's including a gift card to the store, and the Designer Edition - Whoot! Whoot!

Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by---- and one last thing,  I have more projects in the making -stay tune! ~ blessings ~ Gail ~

Carson's Christmas Card

 Howdy Crafters - my 5 year old grandson, Carson spent the night last night. He ventured into the craft room and saw the Cardinal Christmas Card I created and wanted it. I explained to him it was for my mom because great-grandma loves cardinals. 
He asked if he could make one for himself and here is the result in these 2 photos - the front and inside of the card. Carson did all of the work except for the following; cutting the banners and mats, stamping the sentiment, using the Micron black pen to highlight digital lines. 
Carson, glued, added the pop up tape, colored the cardinal and fox, used the Wink of Stella pen, placed the gems, did the embossing and other die cutting using the Cuttlebug machine, etc. [You know, "Grandma, I can do this!"]
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed week - grandma & Carson
