Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool and Masks

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Today I made a scrapbook page using Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool and masks. We took our Granddaughter to see the Easter Bunny this weekend so as soon as I got the pictures I knew what my project was going to be this week! I was also very excited to try this new tool!

But before I get into the details here is my list of products that I used for my project. The Tim Holtz Distress Market Spritzer Tool is a brand new tool and it is available on the Cut at Home website, SKU: TDA39730
Silhouette America, Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T
Silhouette America Sketch Pen Starter Kit – SKU: KIT-PEN-3T
I also used Tim Holtz Distress Markers in Spun Sugar, Mustard Seed and Dusty Concord, Hazel and Ruby Scallop Away Washi Tape, Queen and Co. Polka Dot Purple Washi Tape, Bazzill Card Stock and small pearls.
First I created a mask using a couple of bunny shapes from the Silhouette on line store. I have the file available if anyone wants the Silhouette Studio file. When I was happy with my design I cut it and used a repositionable adhesive to adhere it to card stock. Then I was ready to try my new tool!

I was very happy with the result and how it looks with the distress markers, I did a little experimenting with different markers, so you can use a variety of markers. Now I was ready to put together my page. I cut two 4 1/2″ x 7″ pieces of yellow card stock.
I tied in the border with the picture frames, I decided to use the rabbits that were cut out of the mask part of the boarder so I spritzed them and added little pearls for the eyes. Then I created a title on the Silhouette using the Silhouette sketch pens, and added a couple of bunnies to the title.
I was very happy with the results, I didn’t want to over decorate the page to take away from the beautiful background.
I hope that you like my project and get a chance to try this awesome new tool!

Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin.

Picture Frame with Silhouette Silver Foil and Graphic 45

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Hi everyone today I made a picture frame with Sihouette Silver Foil and Graphic 45 “Good Ol’ Sport” paper. A friend of mine has a son that is active in sports so I decided to make a picture frame for her, he is starting the baseball season so that’s the theme I went with.

Here are the supplies that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website:
Graphic 45Good Ol’ Sport Patterns & Solids 6 x 6 – SKU: 4500864
Silhouette America Printable Foil Silver – SKU: Media-SVR-ADH
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Peeled Paint – SKU: TIM20233
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T
I also used a few items from my stash, FolkArt Enamels – Metallic Silver Acrylic Paint, Darice Press Wood Frame, Xyron lamination/adhesive and Epiphany Crafts Star Shapemaker.
The first step was to paint the frame, this step probably took the longest because of having to let the paint dry between coats. I painted the sides and the back, including the edge where the picture goes. I didn’t paint the front since I was going to cover it.
Next I created the print and cut files on the Silhouette Cameo.

The next step was to cover the front of the frame with paper, I ran all the paper through my Xyron machine so that the paper would have lamination over it an would be easy to dust and keep clean.I used two sheets of the striped paper, I cut around the picture area with an Exacto knife, then I put the silver foil that I cut and print on the frame.
I still wanted to add a little more pop to the frame so I decided to go back and print the words file again on a light cream colored stock to match the cream color in the stripes on the paper, then I reprinted the large “Play” in the silver foil. I inked the edges of the cream stock with the peeled paint distress ink, I also cut some stars on the silhouette using the paper from the collection, I tried to cut the stars out of the areas of the paper that had baseball images on it. After I cut the stars I inked the edges of them. Then I cut out the baseball player inking those corners as well. I used the shapemaker to make the small stars.
Here is the finished frame:
I was really happy with the finished product and hope that she will like it as much as I do! Have a great week until next time thanks and happy scrappin.

Echo Park St. Patrick’s Day Cards

Friday, March 7th, 2014

My Echo Park St. Patrick’s Day cards were pretty much completely made from the Echo Park St Patrick’s Day Mini Theme Collection. This mini theme collection kit is just the right amount of St. Patrick’s day items to make a 6 scrapbook pages or numerous cards. With St. Patty’s fast approaching I have made this set of cards using this collection and a foil over technique to color my shamrocks.


Start with cutting 2 of the journaling cards included in the kit to use as my background image. Next, using one of the 12×12 double sided papers I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the clovers using file “3D Bunch of clovers” from Jamie Lane Designs.SW3902_St Patricks_Journaling










Setting 1 pair clovers aside for one card we are going to “foil” one of the clovers. You can do this with glitter, but I am using glitter color sprays. Step one is to spray your clover with the bright green, let dry for 15-20 seconds. Next spray with your gold glitter, while the spray is still wet using a tissue paper dab over to show some of the green. Let the clover dry before using to prevent smudging.


Now to put everything together:

Card #1

1.Emboss journaling card using Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities European Tapestry folder.


2. Glue non-foil clover to top corner of card

3. Glue foiled clover slightly over the first clover.


4. Place ribbon across the stem of the foiled clover.

5. Using the “Irish” sticker from stickers in collection

6.  Using the stickers spell “SPD” and place at bottom of card.


Card #2

1. Trim shamrock journaling card so the card shows in back.

2. Using larger clover glue on the center of the white shamrock.


3. Layer the second clover to give the card dimension.


4. Place green pear on center of clovers.

5. Using stickers spell” GOLD” at the bottom of card.


These cards are ready to be sent out, and still plenty of St. Patrick’s Day paper goodies left to play with. These cards would be perfect paired with a baggie full of gold coins or rainbow colored candy.  Please enjoy this step-by-step video!

Majestic Blooms Birthday Card

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Howdy! Today I am creating a Majestic Blooms birthday card utilizing the Heartfelt Creations Majestic Blooms stamp set and a minimum amount of products. Who doesn’t love simplicity and a fast project? To start I selected 4 sheets from the Blossom Song stack. For the background I am a using a plaid sheet, trimming it and placing in my Silhouette Cameo to write “Happy Birthday” with the Silhouette Sketch Pens in Glitter Green.



Next, I embossed the same piece of card stock with Darice “Swirls” using my Cuttlebug. Now you have your “base layer ready”.

Now for the details, using the Silhouette Cameo I proceeded to cut leave vines that can be found in Silhouette Online Studio. The card stock is a green from the same paper stack.


Moving on from cutting the vines, I proceeded to die cut the flowers using Heartfelt Creations Majestic Bloom Die Set.



Curl the petals with your nails or pen, then glue them together. Finally place your pearl or embellishment.



To create you 3rd flower, use one of the glittered card stock from the stack and cut it.


Now that everything is cut, simply paste it on your card. First the leaf vine, then your flowers. I have a short step-by-step video at the end of this post.

Here is the finished product.



Products used for this project:

Silhouette Cameo

Silhouette Glitter Sketch Markers

DCWV Blossom Song Stack 12×12

Scrappin’ Silhouette Valentine Layout!

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

I created this Scrappin’ Silhouette Valentine layout for my Scrapbook Exchange Group that I meet with quarterly after planning a pepermint candy Christmas layout for a couple months. Yeah, I totally changed my plan when I sat down to my computer, which happens quite often for me. I think I’m a little A.D.D. when it comes to creating, because I will start with something in mind, but somehow what I end up with is completely different! In this case I guess you could say that I at least stayed in the color scheme I had originally intended for the peppermint candy (Cheesy smile).

What can I say, I got a little side-tracked when I got on the Silhouette Store for the peppermints when all the hearts popped out at me! I am actually really glad, because this came together at the perfect time, both for my exchange and Feb. blog. Works for me!

I found the heart background and the saying “All MY HEART” and cut those out with my Cameo.












Once I had the background cut, I took the large heart out of the corner, placed it on a sheet of Scor-Tape, cut it out of the Scor-Tape and sprinkled Silhouette Glitter over the sticky side.










I adhered the background on a sheet of red cardstock then added a matted photo, heart brads on the corners of the matting and red rhinestones on the corners of the background. I used adhesive foam squares between the two mats to add dimension to the photo.












There was a border around the background that I placed on another sheet of red cardstock and inside the border is where I placed the glittered heart and the sentiment.











I added some Stickles to the sentiment on the hearts to add some interest, then added Bo Bunny Head Over Heels stickers and matted photos. Simple, but totally cute!

Now all that’s left to do is add my journaling, which, knowing me, will likely be a while. I’m terrible at getting around to my journaling even though I know how important it is to write things down before I forget. I am working on that.

Products used:

GLITTER-3 Silhouette Glitter Assorted Pastel
15316105 Bo Bunny Head Over Heels 12×12 Collection Pack (stickers)
15307148 Bo Bunny Head Over Heels Self-adhesive Jewels
White Cardstock
Red Cardstock

Heartfelt Creation Gift Bag

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Heartfelt Creations has a new collection Majestic Morning Collection, and with Valentines right around the corner I wanted to make something for my daughter’s teacher. I did not want her to be “my valentine” but simply an appreciation for all her hard work. This collection is simply stunning and the versatility in the paper pack allowed me to make a gift bag with my Silhouette Cameo.


I began by selecting a 12×12 sheet from the Majestic Morning Paper Collection and placing that in my Silhouette Cameo. The box is from Lori Whitlock 3D Treat Bag. Let me make a note that this paper did super well in the cameo, the cuts were crisp and clean. silhoutte

This is what I ended up with:


Next I proceeded to fold the bag and place adhesive on one side. Next I cut a carnation using Spellbinders Carnation Creations via Cuttlebug.


Here is the end result:


Gorgeous, right?! Next assemble your flower using a brad and set aside.


Now to work on our tag. The Majestic Morning paper pack has several tags to choose from. Just select one and cut it out.

Along to coordinate with the paper pack, Heartfelt Creations has 6 sets of pre-cut stamps. For this piece I am using one of the Majestic Morning Bouquet. I stamped it with StazOn and colored it in with watercolor markers. As a finishing touch I placed that gorgeous carnation on the tag, tided the ribbon on the baggie and ready to go!

I will be filling this treat bag with an assortment of chocolates, and giving this to my favorite 1st grade teacher. I cannot wait to make other gifts and coordinating cards with this collection.  For a step-by-step video please see below.

Thanks and Happy Scrapin’!
