Blog Post for PPBN Designs today

Welcome! Today I have the blog post over at and I have created a couple of her new svg files.  The first one is a quick and easy shaped Birthday Girl card.  I loved how easy this was to cut and put together.  I used my Silhouette Cameo and just cardstock and added a little stickles.
My second project for today is a scrapbook page I created with a new file called Off to Kindergarten and used some elements from one of the older files called First Day of Preschool.  For this layout I used paper from a Me and My Big Ideas school stack, Michaels cardstock and added some ribbon.  My little granddaughter will be going to kindergarten in about 3 weeks so I am ready for that first picture.  I used my Silhouette Cameo for this one too.  I did receive my Cricut Explore today so I will be working on learning it and creating in both!!!  Love my toys!  Stop over to PPBN Designs and check out all the great files for the crafter on a budget!  Take a look at her fantastic club too!

Monday with at the Snapdragon Snippets Blog

Happy Monday!!!  Today I am sharing a project over to the Snapdragon Snippets blog.  I created some thank you cards using the 5 Petal Flower card file #27666 and the 5 flower envelope file#27667.  These are so easy to use and think of the combinations you can make!  I am always needing thank you cards, so these are so easy to mass produce.  I used some old Stampin Up papers that were double sided in blue and green and added cardstock.  Just added stickles and a jewel and they are ready for me to write my note inside.  The envelopes are quick and easy to use.  Check out these files in the Silhouette store and make some cards today!!!

A Little Magnet Fun with Magical Ponies

Welcome to the Wednesday project for the  PPBN Designs blog. Today I am sharing the little ponies svg files. My little granddaughter loves playing with magnets on her board or the refrigerator so I turned her favorite characters right now into magnets. I used the Pink Pony, Purple Sparkle, Butterfly Pony, Rainbow Pony, and Rare Pony. She will be so surprised when I pick her up today!!! These are so cute and easy to do. I just cut them with cardstock , added stickles to glam them up and placed a magnet on the back. We love sparkles!!! Be sure to check out these and all the other great files at PPBN Designs.

A Little Frozen Sunday Project

Happy Sunday! Today I have a project over at Exploring Cricut and More and I am sharing a gift bag and card today. My little granddaughter Peyton recently had her 5th birthday and her theme was Frozen so the good Nana I am, I decided to stay with her theme! I made a gift bag and a card in the box. I used my Silhouette Cameo and several svg files. I used Snapdragon Snippets July 4th card in the box, file#61113 and the envelope file#60587 that you can buy in the Silhouette store but of course I did not use the designs in it.  I love this card because it is larger than most of the card boxes I have found.  For the bag and card, I used files from PPBN Designs, I used most of the characters from the Let It Go Set and From the First Time and from Little Scraps of Heaven, I used files from their Ice Princess set, the Princess and the ice and snow.  I think the snowflakes too which I stamped Happy Birthday and from us.  I just used a font in the software to make the number 5.  I used some paper from Bo Bunny and cardstock from Michaels.  The shiny bag is from the good old Dollar Tree.  I used a brad on the card and it was from Hobby Lobby.  I forgot to photograph her other packages, but I wrapped them in white and just added blue bows and in the center added a big snowflake brad like on the card. This was fun to make.  I think I made the character 2.25 inches and they worked perfectly for this card.  I think the final measurements of the card was 7 x 7 and I was glad they made the envelope to fit it and it was so easy to make.  Think of the characters you could make for a little ones card!!! Sorry for the bag picture so hard photographing a shiny bag!!! Join us tomorrow for a new challenge!

Today I have created a two page layout using the svg files from PPBN Designs.  I used Sweet as Honey title, Cute Single Honey Bee, Honeybee on Flower and Cute Flying Bee.  These were fun and easy to use.  I decided just to use cardstock so that the designs did not get lost in background paper and love these colors.  These pages are all ready for my little angel granddaughters pictures.  Stop by PPBN Designs and check out all the files and also check out her monthly club!  For only $7 a month you will receive 60 free designs a month plus 40% off all your other files.  Great deal!!

Exploring Cricut and More Post

Well I was not suppose to do a post today over at Exploring Cricut, but things happen so I had to get a quick card together.  I used a ball hat svg file from SVG Cutting Files and my Silhouette Cameo.  This is a quick and easy card that you can customize to your favorite team in any color.  I just used cardstock and made some stitches with a white pen and used a font in my collection in the Designer software.
