My post for PPBN Designs Blog "You Rock!"

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a cute one page layout on the blog  This is called "You Rock" from PPBN Designs.  Even though this has a music theme, I thought it applied to this little guy because he kinda of rocks in my book!  He is my little 6 year old nephew Cannon.  For this layout, I used some old Bo Bunny pattern paper I had in my stash and cardstock from Bazzill.  I added a little glitz by using some stickles on some of the letters.  You can purchase files for this layout and many other fabulous ones at

Tuesday Daily Project at Exploring Cricut and More

Happy Tuesday all! Today at Exploring Cricut and More I am sharing a card in a box that I made for my granddaughter Katie for her 11th birthday this past Friday. This card folds up to go right into a 5x7 envelope.  This is a super easy card.  I used my Silhouette Cameo and bought the file at the Silhouette Store.  It is file #57264 and this is a Lori Whitlock file.  She also has a you tube video to see how to put the card in a box together if you need help.  I love how this turned out and the good thing other than the base of the card, I used scraps.  Added some stickles for the bling and the piece on the front was to sign.  So much fun and can't wait to make others!  Stop by the blog and enter our challenge this week too!

Time for a Little Easter Project with PPBN Designs

Hello,I am here with another adorable project made with the fabulous PPBN Designs svg files. I used the Bunny In The Egg, Easter Eggs, and the grass from the Super Bowl Sunday files.  It's time to start making those Easter treats and this little bunny is an adorable edition to any card, layout, or paper craft.  Today I am using it to decorate this little basket perfect for a cute gift or table decoration.  I cut the bunny at the size in the file which was perfect for this basket.  The eggs I reduced the size 50% and just added the grass piece to fit.  You can really have fun with these files. I will also show you how to make this quick and easy basket too.

                       He is so cute and makes a perfect decoration!  I added a little stickles to the egg. 
                           You cut a piece of cardstock 8.5 x 8.5 for the basket and 1.5 x 11. 5 for the handle                                                               and fold at 2.50 on each end.
                                    Score and cut the ends up  the middle fold line on each end. 
                              Bring the ends up to the middle and add brad or staple and add the handle.
I added a little touch to the handle by using a punch to decorate it and then I added some ribbon. Be sure to stop by PPBN Designs and check out all the great files!

My first DT Post for PPBN Designs

Hello!  I am please to share this beautiful Pretty Little Lady set as my first project for the Design Team of PPBN Designs. You can check out the blog at and see what the DT has to share with you!! As with all of PPBN Design sets, they are sized for you to cut or print and create beautiful projects.  For this layout I picked the colors red, black, white, and yellow along with some patterns to make this layout pop!  The lady bugs on the page are attached to wobbles to make movement.  The Pretty Little Lady page includes one of my pretty ladies, my granddaughter Mary-Kate.  I will show you steps for creating this layout which will be helpful to new svg file users. 
The finished layout includes enough elements for the perfect page and your picture.
I laid out all the colors first that I wanted to do in black and got them ready to cut.  The best thing is you can be so creative and use any colors and patterns to fit your style.
Now these are cut on my mat and ready for me to take them off and start creating the design elements.
The title is usually what I start assembling as soon as everything is cut out and sorted.
This is a view of one of the lady bugs that is attached to an action wobble.  Makes your pages pop!
 Thank you for stopping by today .
