Happy Birthday to a DEER Friend

Happy Thursday! I'm so excited to share this cute little card with you.  I created the card base in Silhouette Studio from a tag! Although I've done this thousands of times on my Gypsy this was the first time in Silhouette studio and it was awesome and easy at the same time! This little deer is also cut from Silhouette Studio on my Cameo. 

Twine is from the Twinery, and the butterflies were a martha stewart punch. 

All of you who are on the fence on getting a Cameo.... do it! I still love my cricut but the cameo cuts sooo much better. For example if I would of cut this deer out on the cricut I would still of had to pull out all those little circles on the deer because they would still be hanging on a little bit. I thought that was normal. Nope it's not! And look closely at those little circles on the deer.. they are cut soooo clean!! No jagged edges.. no paper frays!! Ok thats my rant on the Cricut vs. Cameo. :)

Easy Easter Treats

Hello and happy hump day! Today I am sharing with you this little Easter treat that I made! I am probably going to make them for all my work buddies! I love how it turned out!! 

I filled Jaded Blossom's cone bags with orange Reece's Pieces that I got at target in the Easter section. I then tied it at the top with twine really good then added green tulle over it to make it look more like the greenery sticking out of a carrot. 

For the tag I used Easter Treats stamp set and stamped the eggs in brown on kraft paper. I used a Stampin Up 1 3/4 inch punch to punch out the egg circle. Then I inked the edge in a darker brown. I stamped "Happy Easter" in black to make it pop alittle more. I then used my scallop circle nestabilities for the orange and lime green scallop circles which I also inked in brown. For the twine bow I used my bow maker and stole a technique I've seen my friend Ruthie do which is tie the ends of the twine  in a knot. 

I love how this came out. AND it was an EASY TREAT to make!! Aren't those the best? :) Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Thank You

Happy Tuesday!! Today I am sharing this cute little card I made with my Cameo :) 

Both the Bee and the card shape were cut out from Silhouette Studio. "Thank You" is of course from Jaded Blossom and the face was stamped from Peachy Keen "The Cornies" which is my favorite peachy keen stamp set! 

I hope everyone has a great day!!

 Now that Valentines Day is over its time to officially start with the St Patricks Day and Easter crafting!! I decided to kick it off with this cute little Easter Treat box!! 

I used Easter Treats stamp set for both the sentiment and the chocolate bunny. I also used the clear boxes that we have in the store and filled it with 15 chocolate foil eggs. I colored the bunny with my Copics. 

And of course I used Twinery Pink and Green twine along with some Echo Park paper :)
