Graduation Gift Set with Nicole

0 Comments

Graduation season has come!  Since I work with the youth at church I had a graduation to celebrate this year.  Our local high school colors are black, yellow, with white accents.  I also knew from talking to the graduate the previous week that her graduation cap and gown were white – so my obvious choice when cutting the card.   I used Rivka’s graduation hat card.  This one is the gift card holder, but I cut a small piece of cardstock to slip in the pocket that we wrote a little sentiment on.

The bag is one of Jamie’s gift bags.  I used the larger size and enlarged it slightly to fit my whole mat and chose not to use the fold over flap.  To decorate the outside of the gift bag I cut the banner, graduation hat, and stars from Jamie’s graduation gift card holder.
I finished off the bag with some wired polka dot ribbon and a ribbon flower.
 
A bright and festive set to present to a wonderful girl on her graduation day.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
 Happy Crafting, Nicole

Home & Love Frame Anita Mulcahey

0 Comments

So my son whom I am very close to just graduated from college and took a job in Ohio.  We live in MA 11 hours away.  He and his fiance are moving this weekend so I made them this wall art frame for their new home.  I am excited to see where his story will go to from here.
I  used this lovely cut file called Home Quote by Jennifer Wambach.  You can see the file below and links to the store as well as that cut file.
Home Quote
I bought adhesive denim on a roll from Michaels.  The cut is a little bit rough but given that it is for a guy I like how it came out. I had to take it out of the frame to get a good photo.
Be sure to check out the Digiplayground Store for this and more awesome cut files.
Hugs,
Anita

Bluebells Circle Card Tutorial by Tammy

0 Comments

Bluebells Circle Card, Tammy @ Not Just Paper and Glue, Digi Playground, Samantha Walker, Nic Squirrell, Jamie Cripps, svg, cutting files,

Have you ever wondered how you could take your existing cutting files and turn them in to something unique?
Tammy here from Not Just Paper and GlueIn this video, I am going to show you how to transform the files you purchase from the Digi Playground store to create your own custom templates.(I am using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software for this demonstration)

Now that I have shown you how to create your unique cutting files, cut the files from your cardstock and lets begin the assembling process.

  1. The circle was cut from Sticky Paper. Remove the backing and cover with White Pearl glitter.
  2. Use a flower sculpting tool to add dimension to the backside of the bluebells.
  3. Use either foam adhesive or Scrap Dots to keep the dimension of the flowers and to also help adhere to your glittered background
  4. Use an adhesive that works well with glitter (like Crystal Lacquer) to adhere the bluebells to the glittered background
  5. Add any additional embellishments that you wish to your design.
  6. Place adhesive to solid center of the doily and adhere the bluebells design to the center
    (Wasn’t it worth it to remove all of those additional cuts?)
  7. Layer your background pieces using your favorite adhesive.
  8. Attach your flags to your card then layer your bluebell doily over the top.
Voila! You have just created a card using a custom template.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions about this tutorial,
please be sure to leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to get you an answer.

You are Invited to a PIG-NIC…

haha!
i grabbed this file at the DIGIPLAYGROUND for today’s post.
since i first saw it i wanted it so bad. i think is adorable.
may and june are full of graduation parties. i have a few to congratulate including my son.
and then i thought i will make this gable box and i will cut some duplicates of the animal and make my own invites or congratulation cards. i can also use it as it is: a treat box or maybe even for decoration.
and if i switch the inside i can use it for many more occasions.
Graduation Party Invite and Gable Box
isn’t she adorable?
i added the graduation cap/hat from a cricut cartridge.
 (NOTE: the cap does NOT come with the file)
-this is how the invite will look-
ooops! the eyes are upside down but if i do not tell, you wouldn’t notice it.
-and this is the inside-
i used my die cutter (cricut explore) for the cutting and writing.
(the font is from the “all mixed up” cricut cart)
and i thought it would be funny to write
PIG-NIC
instead
of
PICNIC
just to have some more fun
here you can see it attached to the box.
the final gable treat box measures around
4-3/4″ x 1″
the one i made is a bit taller because of the cap.
-i added some shimmer to the eyes and feet, and some color to her cheeks-
i think you will love this box.
-this is the file you will find at the digiplayground-
oh and they also have a cow,
maybe next project will be beefy, lol
and now as always,
thank you so much for stopping by.
we appreciate your visits and comments and projects.
did you know you can add your project photo to the gallery?

Family Tree in Vinyl by Melissa

0 Comments

Hello friends!  Thank you for stopping by once again.  I have a fun project to share with you today.  This is how to up-cycle a garage sale picture frame or to embellish a new one (purchased at Michaels with a 50% off coupon).

My frame features Three Heart Tree by Jennifer Wambach.  She does have a few styles of this tree in the DigiPlayground store.  My frame is 8×8, so I sized the cut file down to just under 8 inches and then cut it out of black vinyl.  I took the frame apart to clean it really well and then carefully adhered the tree to front panel of glass.  Then I made a template the same size as the hearts and then cut out my pictures (of my kids) to go behind the hearts.  This was a little tricky but I love the results.  I used little pieces of Scor-Tape to secure the photos (mini glue dots will work, too).

Again, thank you for stopping by!
