Arc and Levenger Punch Comparison

A few weeks ago I did a series on how to make your own calendar organizer using the Arc System. After I finished the videos, I had several emails suggesting that I use the Levenger punch instead of the Arc System. I contacted Levenger and they sent me their portable punch to try. Hope you enjoy my video comparison.



Have a wonderful day!

Monday Rewind

Using my Silhouette Cameo to make three dimensional sentiment stickers is one of my all-time favorite projects so I thought I would do a Monday rewind.


I love the look of Anna Griffin 3-D sentiments, so several months ago I decided to make my own using the print and cut function of my Silhouette Cameo.

I had so much fun making them that I decided to do a video. Now I need to try making them with my Cricut Explore!



Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!

Last week I posted Part One of my video series on how to make a personal planner using the Arc system.  This week’s video is on how to make the accessories that go with your planner. Click here to view Monday’s post on how to make motivational cards.



I had so much fun making the accessories and they were so easy!

Below is part one just in case you missed it.

Before getting started on your DIY planner you may also want to view the video below on making your own Smash Book using the Arc system.

DIY Motivational Cards for Your Personal Planner

Last Wednesday I posted a video on how to make a personal planner and I am currently in the process of filming part two of the series demonstrating how to make the accessories etc. Here is a sneak preview of some of my motivational cards.


Many of the DIY planners and calendars showcased at the recent CHA conference came with motivational cards that you could purchase separately. However, I thought it would be fun to make my own. I used file # 74411 that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store to make this card. The file also comes with a 5 x 7 card too! The other great thing about this print and cut file is there is an automatic bleed built into the design, so no white will show. And you will get a very accurate print and cut.


The colors are perfect with the planner.


For this card, I used file # 74414 that I also purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. Both files were created by Emily Dryer.


Love the colors on this file too! You can also use any 3 x 4 inch or 4 x6 inch life cards that you already own and just punch them. I did that too, but I liked mine better!

Have a great week!
