    Using Card Sketches in Silhouette Studio

    Using card sketches in Silhouette Studio is a great way to streamline your Christmas Card Crafting. I love to make cards and make them often. One of my daughters will sometimes pick her favorites from my stash. For a recent birthday party, I also used a card from my stash. Creating special cards for events and holidays is a way to save money. It’s also a great way to unleash your creative side. Card Sketches for Easy Card Crafting One way to simplify your card crafting is with a simple card sketch. Now I have to admit, I’m not that amazing when it comes to card crafting. I’ll often watch…

    Trash to Treasure Holiday Sign

    This Trash to Trash to Treasure Holiday Sign saves foam block packaging from the land fill. Add foam board, burlap, and your Silhouette Cameo to create this cute project. I love using what I have on hand to create projects that I can use to decorate for holidays and special occasions. What’s more, I love to do them on the cheap! How to Save Money Crafting How much cheaper can you get than less than $1.00 in materials? That’s right. Most of the stuff used to make this sign was already in my craft stash. I purchased burlap ribbon from Dollar Tree and have enough left over for another project…

  • Jesus Loves Me Pallet Sign

    And Tips for Reclaimed Wood Signs I love how this Jesus loves me pallet sign turned out. Hubby and I have been using reclaimed lumber in a number of recent projects and it’s an amazing resource. Who can argue with free wood? That’s not to say that we haven’t invested a bit in the reclaimed venture. The Jesus loves me pallet sign and a number of other projects came from a single small pallet that we disassembled a few weeks ago. Our pallet adventure all began when we were browsing little shops on a weekend vacation for our anniversary. That was just about a year ago. We saw a small…

    100 Ideas for Small Signs

    and a “Pumpkin Spice” SVG Freebie If you own a cutting machine you’ve maybe thought about creating some of your own home decor. I know that when I purchased my first cutting machine, sign making was very high on my “To DO” list. Even so, I owned the cutting machine, but didn’t always have the time. Can you relate? Maybe it’s not time, but maybe it’s space, owning power tools or other reasons that keep you from making some cute home decor pieces of your own. Don’t have time or space for big signs? No problem. There’s lots of great small signs within easy reach. At the end of this…

    Three Rustic Trees Ornaments and Free SVG

    These rustic trees ornaments are made from pallet scraps from one of my latest pallet sign projects. They are super simple to make and can be made from any small pieces of wood. I know it seems a little bit early for Christmas stuff, but my next craft fair is the first weekend in November. I thought some of these would be a nice addition to my booth, not to mention nice family gifts for this Christmas. The pallet that I took apart for a recent project had boards that were only 3/8″ thick and so it was perfect for these ornaments. The overall dimensions of the face are 1…

There is also a set of six snowflakes on my Free SVG page HERE. In addition…

    Rustic Lantern SVG File

    Free Lantern SVG File for Summer Crafts Welcome back! Today I’m sharing this rustic lantern SVG file that you can use for your summer camping or adventure themed projects. I don’t know about you, but our family loves camping. I mean the “roughin’ it” tent camping sort of camping. Okay, I’m not gonna lie, “mostly” rouging it. I like at least a few creature comforts. Truth be told, the Mr. and I have been tent camping for 35ish years. I could easily be convinced to step up to something a little more glamorous. But we do enjoy getting out there for some quiet nights away from street lamps and noise.…

    Do you need it? I have to admit that it took me awhile to decide to go with the Silhouette Studio Business Edition. Maybe you’ve looked into it to and wondered why you should get it.
