Martha Stewart Meets the Cameo!

I was among a fortunate group of bloggers that was contacted by Martha Stewart’s office to participate in Michael’s Craft Month campaign with Martha Stewart’s Crafts! After doing a happy dance around my craft room, I decided to combine Martha’s amazing papers and stickers with my Silhouette Cameo to make some adorable Halloween decorations. I also used her quick and easy to use lantern template. A special thanks to Martha Stewart’s office for sending me all the wonderful supplies and tools.


Martha Stewart’s Carnival Paper Pad made this project so easy. Having beautiful coordinating paper in one pad saves a great deal of time and it cuts flawlessly with my Cameo!



I used the Midnight Jamboree cutting files from SVG cuts with my Silhouette Cameo to cut my projects with the exception of the lantern. Martha’s papers cut like butter when using the Silhouette Cameo. I set the speed to 2, the pressure to 33 and my blade to 4. Her double-sided gorgeous paper cut perfect every time and I do mean every time. Assembly instructions for the SVG files are available by clicking here.


This Halloween treat bag was made using Martha’s papers, and her Scoring Board and paper punch to make the rosettes. Click here if you would like to see a video I made on how to make Halloween rosettes. The center of the rosette is from the Martha Stewart Crafts-Halloween Collection- Self-adhesive border pad. I just trimmed the image to fit.


I love her lantern tool and have had mine for a while. To see a video I made on how to make this amazing lantern, click here. Once again I used Martha’s amazing paper including her vellum paper and a cutting file for the rosette designed by Lori Whitlock. The button and ribbons were from my stash. You can use the lantern template for any season! And don’t forget to add a flameless candle to light up your holiday.


This may be my favorite project of all. Martha’s papers tied everything together perfectly. Thanks to her amazing products and tools, I was able to complete this project in record time. The solid colored papers and thin black ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for visiting and a special thanks to Martha Stewart’s office for sending me all the wonderful materials to complete this project! Also, don’t forget to visit her new craft board on Pinterest and check out her wonderful products available at Michaels.

Awesome projects, Linda! Not surprised with MS contacting you - you are the reason I bought those lantern set from HSN last year after you showcased projects using them ;).

I just love SVGCuts.com!! I've ordered a bunch of svg's since discovering them a couple of months ago! They're so easy to put together, and Mary's videos are wonderful!!! I just finished the Halloween candy container with the cat and pumpkin, and I can't wait to give it to the little girl that lives next door. I love the MS papers you've used, too! So pretty!

Kate (Small Bits of Paper) said...
