Shadow Box Cards

I did a happy dance in my craft room when I discovered this new shadow box card file (#76690) in the Silhouette On-line store. Carina Gardner designed several shadow box cards and I can’t wait to make more of them.


We have two black cats named Jackson and Bridget so I decided to use black card stock for this project.  I think this card is super adorable and the cats look like ours.

I used pop dots to get the perfect amount of dimension. The card was so easy to make!

Have a great day!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

My Silhouette Cameo was feeling a little neglected so I decided to make a fun set of Print and Cut cards.


I purchased both files from the Silhouette On-line store. The card on the left is #75927 and the card on the right is #75926. The great news about this file is the designer, Emily Dryer created a bleed for you, so the cut turns out perfectly every time. I think I will make several of these and bundle them for a gift. I love the bright spring colors.

Have a wonderful day!

Creating Three-Dimensional Stickers using Printed Card Stock

As you all know, I am a huge Anna Griffin fan and love her 3-dimensional stickers. I am always running out of stickers, so I decided to make my own using card stock. They turned out so cute that I could not wait to make a video.



Thanks for watching and have a wonderful day!

Make it in Minutes Monday Cricut Explore Style

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday.

I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

I am using my Cricut Explore more and more as I try out all the features. This week I tried using the Cricut pens and I am in love.


This Make it Now card file is free when you purchase the new Explore Air machine. It is so fun and easy to make and only took 5 minutes to do. Wouldn't it be fun to make several in different colors as a gift? Love it!

I used the silver pen, but I so need to buy more colors!

Have a great day!

Explore Print Then Cut Anna Griffin Style

I am seriously addicted to anything Anna Griffin and fell in love with this Make it Now print then cut project.


Can you believe the tag and butterfly are a print then cut? I used paper from my stash and an Anna Griffin die for the border. I used Anna’s metallic paper to cut and emboss the border.

This card is so easy and looks so elegant. Next Wednesday, I will have an all new video to share with you.

See you Friday!
