Silhouette Promo | Easter Candy Bags & Boxes

Today I’m bringing you two of my favorite things together – Easter candy and a Silhouette promo – along with another favorite of mine, the Silhouette cut files of designer Lori Whitlock! She designed both of the candy container templates I used for these projects.

These fun containers make a great way to share a sweet treat with someone, and can be adapted for any holiday with themed supplies. I used my Silhouette’s Print & Cut feature, along with some themed print & cut files, to make these festive for Easter.

Love Cards with Fancy Pants Designs!

I had some card making fun recently with Fancy Pants’ “Be Loved” collection. This collection encompasses some of my favorite things creatively right now: tags, pink, blue, and gray (to name a few). And like it’s name suggests, it’s perfect for making love cards for your favorite person (and not just on Valentine’s Day!)

Using tags to make cards is one of my favorite shortcuts, and “Be Loved” has great tag sets with it that are perfect for cards. I couldn’t resist!

Silhouette Giveaway & Promo: 30% off All Supplies

I recently needed to make a card for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t yet tried the Silhouette Glitter Kit, so I decided this was the perfect occasion to try it out. After all, if you can’t glitter a wedding, what can you glitter?
Silhouette Wedding Card

Supplies – Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (London Market 6×6). Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress (Antique Linen). Pens: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pens (Black Soot, Warm Lipstick). Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments). Die Cutting Supplies: Silhouette Portrait Machine, Silhouette Glitter Kit, Silhouette Cut File (2 Wedding Icons by Lori Whitlock).

I used my Silhouette Portrait machine to cut the shape of the rings out of the double-sided adhesive paper that came in the kit. I peeled the first side and stuck the shape down and then peeled to reveal the adhesive for the glitter. I opened the glitter to shake it onto the adhesive and was absolutely blown away at how fine it was. The texture is beautiful and it stuck wonderfully with very full coverage. Continue Reading →
