Ice Cream Sandwich

I am not sure this Ice Cream Sandwich would last too long in the brutal AZ heat right now, but isn't it darling?  I cut this on the Cameo- a cut I purchased from SVG cutting files.  Oh, my they have a TON of cute, cute things... and I can't wait to share them with you!!

This is an Ice Cream Sandwich box, which is just perfect for an Ice Cream Gift card or small candies as a nice treat!!  Thanks for checking it out!!

Tea, anyone?

Here is another project mom and I completed while we were together last week!  Mom wanted me to show her how to make these darling tea boxes.  We each made one and then we combined our efforts and made one together.  They were fun as we just used some paper mom had and put them together and made some stunning boxes!  We surprised ourselves.  What do you think?

Knitted hats

Mom and I recently got together for such a wonderful visit... we found some time to fit in some craft time too.  We made some knitted hats on the loom, and they turned out great!  I was showing mom how to knit on a loom, but she in fact showed me some ideas to make the hats even better!  So now, I am anxious to make another one using her ideas and much prettier yarn!  What do you think?

Beach Fry box

Using TBBM2 and Life's a Beach and Simply Charmed!  I just love that Sun!!  I wanted to try my new Peachy Keen Stamps...

I thought putting some items for your Toes in there... lotion, file, toe separators, etc... perfect for making your toes " Beach Ready!"    I loved the way this turned out!!

Treat Carrier

This cut is darling... $.99 and it cut so easily and didn't even require glue to put it together!  ( I think if I were to put anything heavy in there, I would use adhesive.)
This would be a cute treat carrier for a friend, or Mom, or anyone you wanted to give a special treat!

Two-sided paper is a must for this cut, unless, you fill it with some tissue paper...

Runner girl

Loved this one!!  Yep, another Freebie!!  I like this runner girl so much better than the All My Sports on the Cricut.. I think I have overused her!!  So this one will be fun for awhile!!

I wanted to see how the Cameo would cut on vinyl... perfect!  (Although, it took me a couple of tries to figure it out...)  This runner will be used on many projects to come... look out!!

Coffee Time

About how cute are these?  Yes, I made them with the Cameo... I am still learning how to work the different buttons and sizing and everything else... but as I waste alot of paper, I like the end results!  Hahahahaha

This is a download that I paid for... $2.00.  I love being able to download just what I want and not a whole cartridge of things I don't want or never use.  However, to be fair, I love the Cricut and the "booklet" that shows the image while I cut... puts it into perspective... as with the Cameo... I bounce back and forth looking at the picture.

This is the Cafe/Latte box.  I love the Peachy Keen stamped face, and I ran the sleeve through the Fiskars tool.  (Can't think for the life of me what it is called...)  What do you think?  The box is pretty big, so I will need to think of some fun things to put in it!  Great Thank you gift... right?

New Toy

Well, it arrived, and I couldn't wait to play with my new Cameo.  Quite a learning curve once you are used to the Cricut!!  I downloaded several free SVG files form the Internet and I got a $10.00 gift card to the Silhouette store... doesn't go far... Hahahahahaha

Here is one of my first projects however, I purchased this frame many months ago, wanting to do something with it craft wise, and I stumbled upon this quote, which I have become quite fond of recently... and it certainly fit my morning of crafting with the Cameo!  More project to come from both Cricut and the Cameo... I love them both!!

Sillhouette Cameo

has been ordered and on the way!!  I cannot wait to get this machine!!  I love to "build" things and the SVG files I have seen on the Internet are just darling!!  So once I get it, and figure out how to use it... look out... I will have more boxes than I will know what to do with... hahahahha... Yes, I will still use my beloved Cricut, but can't wait for the Cameo!!
Anyone else have one??  Please share!!

Altered Glasses Case

I bought this case for glasses at Target over 2 years ago... haven't ever used it... so I thought I would "dress" it up a bit!!  I made some flowers and added ribbon along with my trusty hot glue gun and made it something I might consider using!  It's funny how a $1.00 item can look like a $10.00 item with just a few supplies... what have you altered lately??
