Silhouette Sunday #20: Shaped Holiday Cards

shapedcard1Hello!! It’s Silhouette Sunday and I have been playing in my craft room for hours today and just enjoying the sound of my machine making magic while I assemble these beauties and select papers for other projects. In fact, I was having so much fun, that I am just now sitting down to share with you my project.shapedcard3With Thanksgiving complete, I thought I would start on my holiday cards and fun home decor projects for the winter months.¬†Today’s cut file came from the Silhouette Design Store which if you haven’t heard, all designs are 50% off for a limited time. That’s a steal!! So I am loading up on files in my wishlist.shapedcard2I was attracted to this card because it is a shaped card. I like how it’s shape silhouette’s the scenery. I also like that it requires very few color papers so I could cut and quickly get to the assembling.

I decided I wanted something between the card base and the house so I hand-cut some silver paper to put behind each house.

shapedcard4The picture doesn’t do these cards justice. They are so cute. I hate to part with them!!shapedcard5

Now I must focus on my football game! Hope you had a great week and I will see you next Sunday to share another cute project.

Happy crafting!!


Silhouette Sunday #19: Pencil Topper Gifts


Hello Everyone! It’s been a long time since I posted to Silhouette Sunday (over a year to be exact!). But finding balance to meet all of my commitments is an on-going process. One thing for sure is I still absolutely love my Silhouette machine and use it regularly. I have my eye on the new one but that’s talk for another day (Shhh…). Today I wanted to share with you the cutest little cut file I bought to make gifts for Apollo and his classmates.


It is a turkey pencil topper¬†(#35387). I purchased on sale for 74 cents and downloaded the file from Silhouette’s Design store. Now that is a bargain. Then I marched over to my paper bins to see what I have that I could use for this project. I am always looking for ways to utilize the paper that I have amassed over the years. This was the perfect project to do just that. I used assorted sheets of paper and cardstock in the same hues but different patterns. I bought these inexpensive jars and wrapped a coordinating thread that I bought a while back at the Target dollar section. I thought it spruced up the jar a bit. I must say they look so cute in my craft room that I almost hate to see them go!

silhouettesundaynov17_2016cI will be delivering them to Apollo’s class tomorrow so they have a fun surprise before heading off to the Thanksgiving holiday. I will be back next week to share with you another Silhouette. I have amassed so many cut files and created so many of my own, that I have ample amount to share.

Happy crafting my friends!
