DIY Gold Index Cards, Free Silhouette file & Giveaway!

DIY Gold Index Cards

Phew. That title was a mouthful! There is plenty of fun stuff going on in this post though so make sure and get your free Silhouette file to make these DIY Gold index cards and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom too!

First I am going to share with you how I made these gold index cards for my daughters baptism.  I wanted something for the guests to write messsages to my daughter after her baptism and I wanted it to coordinate with the rest of the things that I had made.  I wanted to make some gold notecards and new my Silhouette CAMEO would come to my rescue.

This is what the file looks like.  It is made for a 12 x 12  sheet of paper.  I color coded it for easy cutting.  First, using a gold sketch pen or gold marker, have your Silhouette cut the red lines (under advanced cutting click cut by line color and then pick red).  Once your design has been sketched out, change out the pen / marker for your cutting blade and have your Silhouette cut the blue lines.  That is all. Think of the index card or note card possibilities! If you want to make your top line a different color, you could even do that too.

Make Your own Gold note cards

You could try printing the lines on your printer first and putting registration marks on the paper but then you wouldn’t get that beautiful shine from the gold sketch pens!

Large Wood Horse Wall Art and Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

DIY Large Wood Horse Wall Art

Saddle up friends cause we’ve got a great giveaway today!! You may have noticed the Silhouette Circle button on my sidebar… I am working with the good people from Silhouette now and to kick things off I get to giveaway a Silhouette Portrait!!  I am so excited to be an affiliate with Silhouette.  As you can tell from my Silhouette page, I LOVE my Silhouette!! It is hands down my favorite crafting tool and probably gets used almost daily.  Take for instance, this lovely Large Wood Horse Wall Art.  It started off with me asking my sister-in-law if I could help her with one of the upcoming birthday parties she was planning.  She was doing a cowgirl theme and the weather on the day of the birthday was not looking good.  She needed to get some indoor activities put together and asked in I could do a pin the tail on the horse game.

Enter the Silhouette (and some leftover pieces of our wood flooring). [Read more…]

Knit Fabric Flower Shirt Refashion

Fabric Flower Shirt Designed by Lisa Richards

I am over at the Silhouette blog today sharing a tutorial for how I made this knit flower shirt.  I had never cut knit fabric with my Silhouette CAMEO before and I ran into a few hiccups.  I stubbornly fearlessly plowed through though and came up with a darling shirt that my daughter wore like 3 days in a row.  I personally love the color on her so I am happy it all worked out in the head.  Head over and see the full tutorial here.

Travel Tip: PERK Vent Wrap Air Freshener and GIVEAWAY!

This post brought to you by PERK. All opinions are 100% mine.

We just got back from a family vacation that included a long road trip to and from our destination.  Like 10 hours long each way.  That is an eternity to kids and my kids even said that the driving days were the longest days of their lives- so dramatic! I have done some previous posts on travel tips with kids and I have some more coming up in the next few days including sharing my first travel tip today!  When you are in the car for so long with a diaper wearing baby and fast food leftovers scattered about, you start to get some less than pleasant smells marinating in you car.
