Film Strip Photo Hanging

My Scrap Chick came out with a Film Strip Frames file and I thought it would be cute to enlarge them and make a wall hanging with pictures of my kids!  I added some words to describe them using the 55 Words file.  The banner is just a shape I found in my cutting program and sized to fit my letters.  The white dots are melted pony beads to look like pushpins.  I attached everything to a 12x12 piece of cork board and hot glued a ribbon on the back to hang up.  Super simple and cute!

Animal Cutie Cards

I loved the Animal Cuties set that Fleurette Bloom came out with and wanted to make some large cards (5x7) with them. They went along perfectly with the stamps from My Craft Spot!  The stamps I used are Cute Critters and Tasty Treats.  The files I used to create the cards are below.

Holly Days Boxes & Card Kit (Snow Globe Card base)
Celebrations 3D SVG Kit (flag tag - for stamped sentiment)
Animal Cuties (print & cut - printed twice and the head on each animal is popped out with a foam pop dot)

Here are are the 5 cards I made and close-up pictures of each one.

So, here are my projects I made for this hop.  I like to make cards and I kept these pretty simple and sweet.  I used clear acetate on both so they are see-thru.  It's a fun idea!

Here is the first card and the files I used are:
*Tranquil Tree (tree & clouds)
*for the tree paper I used and printed from the Bunny Hop Coordinating Paper Collection
Flower Basket (butterflies & flowers)
I put the stamped sentiment and some clouds on the inside of the card and it shows through.  I added some tiny gems and some white highlights with a white gel pen and things are popped out using foam pop dots.

Another really simple, but cute card~here is my second one and the files I used.
The sentiment is a stamped image from my Stampin' Up collection and I just added a few sparkly flower gems.  The printed cloud background is on the inside and the kite is on the outside on the card.

Vinyled Insulated Cups

I found these reusable plastic cups at Walmart and thought they would be perfect to give to everyone to use on our trip to a resort for the weekend.  They were a last minute idea, so I quickly made them a few hours before we left.  All the files (except for the Minecraft Creeper-found searching online) come from the Silhouette store.

Potato Chip Slide Card

I have always loved this file from SVG CUTTING FILES and finally decided to make a birthday card for a friend using it. The file is called Bag of Chips Slide Card.  I didn't change anything from the already adorable file, just went with the same idea!

The potato chips are run through a Fiskars Crimper to get the ripples and inked to give the cooked look.  So cute!

The insert slides out to reveal your message!

"You Complete Me" - Puzzle Card

I have seen cards similar to this on Pinterest and wanted to make my own version using files from My Scrap Chick.

Here is what I used:

For the puzzle pieces, I wanted them thick like a real puzzle piece, so I cut out 8 of each one and glued them all together.  They feel thick like chipboard!  The sentiment was just printed and cut banner style.

God Bless America Rosette & Star Card

I love this patriotic, fun card I made using  several files from My Scrap Chick!  I especially LOVE the puffy star on top of the rosette.

The Beatles and Freddy Mercury - Vinyl Projects

Two of my nieces are in love with The Beatles and Queen, specifically Freddy Mercury.  So I made up some quick projects to give them for their birthdays.  

I found a vector image online of Freddy Mercury and traced it in my software program.  The Abbey Road and head silhouettes of The Beatles were free svg's I found in a Facebook group.

Super simple to cut out using vinyl and applied to the items!

I just took some quick pics using my cell phone, so photos are pretty bad.  :(

 This is a clipboard I applied the vinyl to.  The title was just something I designed using a few different fonts.

 Here is a blank journaling book.  The book is actually purple and I bound it with some matching twine.

 This is a glass block light.  I wish I would have used a frosted glass so the lights wouldn't show through or at least have used white lights...oh well...It still looks pretty cool!  I used musical Washi tape and added it around the edges and tied a big black bow around it.
