Welcome to the Saturday Silhouette project. Today I have made this adorable Santa Boot from My Scrap Chick. She has so many designs to choose so be sure to check her out and she has a sale going on. This boot would be great filled with treats or goodies for friends and family!! I just added a few Christmas sprigs I had and made it a decoration for my office.  This is so easy to put together too!  Stop by and be sure to enter for her email and on Friday she gives a freebie!

Count Your Blessings

Time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut.  It's called "Count Your Blessings"  You are to make a card, layout of paper craft celebrating Thanksgiving.  You must you a Cricut and Cricut cartridges.  I decided to do some table decor and use the digital Thanksgiving Table Decor.  I love this because you can make some cool things for your Thanksgiving table.  I cut the napkin ring at 2 inches, added some leaves cut at 1.25 inches and the horn at 1.5 inches.  The place card was cut at 3.75.  A quick and easy project.  Link your project by Saturday, November 23 10 pm eastern time.

Silhouette Saturday with PPBN Designs

Been a while since I posted. Lots happening in my life. Two weeks ago I lost my nephew tragically, and went back to my home state for a few days. Since coming home things have been crazy trying to catch up. As I stated last Saturday my Silhouette machine was having some problems which could not be resolved and it is not 4 months old so they are sending me a new one. Well I decided a girl can never have too many machines, so I bought another one. I have two Cricuts too! So in the future if one goes then I have a back up. It arrived yesterday so I made a quick card to try it out. This card is one of the new designs called Christmas Cheer Square Card Kit from PPBN Designs. I love all of Nikki's cool scrapbook pages and she has lots of great svg images.  I decided to use non traditional Christmas colors and added some stickles to it.  Now today I am out of town again, but this time for a happier occasion, my nieces wedding.  Go take a look at all the great designs at PPBN Designs.

Silhouette Saturday this week.......Not

Well normally I have a great project to share with you from using my Silhouette Cameo.  Well on top of having a terrible week with the death of my nephew and being out of state, my 3 month old Cameo decided I have probably over worked it too!  After doing several tests, it must be replaced.  Not discouraged, I had 3 cricuts and 3 Gypsy machines before we got it right.  Just hate being without it.  I am getting ready to sell my 275 plus cartridges so I intend to get a back up.  Hopefully, I will be back running soon, but I will be working on some Cricut projects in the meantime!

You can use any cartridge, any theme but must include 1 pattern paper, 2 cricut cuts, and 3 colors. How easy is that!!  For this challenge I am sharing this recipe book and a couple pages I created.  I figured maybe my granddaughters might like my recipes someday and I will start putting in some favorites.  I used the From My Kitchen, Pooh Font, Preserves, and Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridges.  Below the picture are the cuts.  Be sure to link your project by Saturday, November 9.  Can't wait to see what you enter!

Special Sunday Post at Exploring Cricut

Today I am doing a Sunday post at Exploring Cricut  I made this cute little treat container by recycling an old Prima flower tin. I keep anything that I think I might be able to use in my crafting and this came in handy. I had some scrap Halloween papers in my stash and used it.  I used the cartridges Celebrate with Flourish , Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art, and Mini Monograms.  I used some pieces of ribbon that I keep in a jar.  Small pieces are great for this project.  Below are the measurement and cuts. Be sure to stop by the blog and meet our new design team members.  New challenge starts on Monday!

Celebrate with Flourish-witch cut at 3.5 inches
Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art-trick or treat cut at 1.5 inches
Mini Monograms-scallop circle cut at 3.75 inches
