Very Simple Road Trip Layout

The Going Places Cricut Cartridge is awesome for summer vacation layouts. Here is a simple layout I used that contains 6 photos and 2 journaling blocks. After I added the images, I ended up using arrow brads and some antique looking embellishment to finish it off (not pictured). I love easy and clean looking layouts!

Ninja Die Cut Card

I've been practicing with my Cameo lately and decided to make a die cut card using the Ninja Lettering Delights images.  I welded the image to a rectangle, printed, cut, folded, and then added some white dots and red stickles.  It was a pretty easy card to make.

All About My Dad - Album

This was a Lettering Delights freebie for Father's day.
I used Sihlouette Design Studio to add photos because I really didn't feel like opening up another software program - like Paint Shop Pro. Then, I printed, cut, and binded the edges with my bind it all. Then I had the boys fill  in the blank pages with special words about their daddy.  The hubs said it was the best Father's day present ever! I guess it beat out that new grill set...awesome.

Die Cut Coffee Cup Business Cards

I made these die cut business cards with my Silhouette Cameo . I wanted something unique to pass along because I often get questions about my blog when I'm teaching scrapbooking.
I snagged the coffee cup print and cut from the Silhouette America digital download store. Then I set the cut to print only the outside of the cup.  I added a cropped logo to the middle. Then I added a circle without a colored line so that the text would wrap around the circle object.
The cards are 3.5" x 2.285".

Magic Mike Eat Your Heart Out

I just made card for my sister's birthday using the Greeting Cards Imagine Cartridge.  I set the image size to just under 5.5" and cut the card, dancer, and sentiment images. Then I added some pretty black bling. I think she'll really like it.

I entered this card in the anything goes challenge over at Docerla's Creations. You can see her new stamp sets here.

Picnic Basket and Sandwich Boxes

When I saw this set at MyScrapChick, I just had to have it.  Lucky for me the site is having a 60% off $10 purchase sale this week - score!  I picked this cutting file up for only $2.  Using my Silhouette cameo, I cut out the boxes and assembled them by folding along the score lines.  I added some white stitching to the basket using my while Sakura gellyroll pen, added heart eyelet as well as another cut from the standard Silhouette America freebie offerings that came with my initial purchase.  The sandwich box is distressed using Memento ink.  Makes me want to go on a picnic.  Well...since the 4th of July is coming soon...maybe I'll take that picnic break after all.
I made this box for Docerela Creations 3-d challenge.  She has some fabulous stamps I hope to win.  Maybe you can win too...check out her blog here.
