HALLOWEEN IS IN THE AIR - Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone - well I told you that I had another project that I'd been working on for my husband's secret pal at work.  His secret pal loves all things Halloween especially bats!  So my husband asked me to make him some things to add to his Halloween decor.  

I chose this Halloween lantern because it had bats on it.  I put a LED tea light inside to light it up.  




My next project was a couple of pumpkins - aren't these cute??  These are simply scalloped circle glued together and then I cut out fall leaves and ran through the Cuttlebug.



The final project was a banner of alternating pumpkins, bats, spiderwebs - I think it'll look cute draped along a fireplace mantel.



Thanks so much for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna

DECORATING CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS - Silhouette Cameo, Cricut Explore

Hi Everyone - can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?  I know - it makes me feel a little sick to my stomach too!!  Now let me say that I LOVE the CHRISTMAS SEASON for the true meaning of Christmas in the birth of Christ.  I don't love it for all the hustle and bustle that the world brings to the Christmas season.

I've always wanted to decorate some of the plastic clear ornaments that are in the craft stores these days.  So Boss' Day was last week and my boss LOVES Christmas so I decided to decorate some of the Christmas ornaments for her.

Using vinyl, my Silhouette and my mom's Cricut Explore (which I LOVEEEE), I cut vinyl to decorate the balls.  Now, I will say that this is one of the EASIEST projects to make and it looks oh so pretty!!

I decorated the first ornament to look like Santa Claus.  I filled the inside of the ornament with red strips of paper.  For the buckle, I used rhinestones and formed a square.


The next ornament I cut out JOY for both sides of the ornament.  I filled this ornament with strips of silver glitter paper.


Next, I cut out Let It Snow and a Snowflake.  This ornament is filled with - no, not snow - epson salt. Doesn't it look like snow though?? 


Last, but not least, I cut out my boss' initials and filled with white sheer ribbon.



Once I finished all the ornaments, I made a box to house the ornaments.  I scored the paper at 2" and folded up the sides for the bottom.  I cut a piece of thick cardboard and covered with red paper and adhered to the bottom of the box to make it more sturdy.  



For the top - I cut out a scalloped square with my Silhouette and scored to form the sides.  Then I tied a very pretty red bow around it.  


Now, when I gave it to my boss this morning, she SCREAMED with joy!!  She LOVED it!!!  She loves when I make her things and she especially loved this because it was Christmas!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  We appreciate your visits and your comments!!  Please come back tomorrow - I have another project to show you.  It's for Halloween and for my husband's secret pal at work!!  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
