Halloween Charger

I am having so much fun using my Silhouette Cameo.  I picked up these chargers at Michael's in assorted colours.  This one is a lime green.  I made this this morning while I was doing laundry and before I went to work.  I had to find a little time to play.

Thanks for stopping by.

2 Months 'til Christmas Blog Hop

If you came from Sara's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to hop along you can start at the beginning at Mary's blog.
That's right 2 months until Christmas, 8 weeks, 60 days, 4 pays.  You get the drift.  Who's done their shopping?  Not me, but I am getting there.  If you saw my last two post you will have seen that I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas.  "It's not Christmas yet", you say, how can that be?  Well hubby let me open it early as I have some Christmas gifts that I would like to make with it.  I used it for both of my projects this month.
We are changing things up a bit this month and expanding the Christmas theme to include any Christmas items, cards, tags, gift bags, decor, anything.
My first project is a card.  I used copics and the Silhouette.  I used the Silhouette to print and cut the digi stamp Mrs Claus from Kenny K.  I also cut a shadow layer for it.  I love that I can do this.  I hated cutting out images.
Paper: Black, white (Recollections), Real Red (SU), Fabulous Christmas (Hobby Lobby) LOVE the leopard print.
Stamps:  Mrs Claus(Kenny K), Christmas Wishes(My Pink Stamper)
Liquid Applique
Copics: E00, E000, E29, E33, E35, E37
C5, C7, 100
R20,R29, R32, R35, R59
B05, BG10

My second project is a file I got from a group on FB.  I cut it from vinyl.  It took a little while to weed but was worth it.  I bought an assortment of these chargers at Michaels for this type of project.  For the circles around the outside I just used my 1' punch.
Your next stop is Shari's blog 

Thanks for stopping by.

Silhouette Cameo

My first projects using the Silhouette Cameo.  I did a print and cut with my digi stamps.  I hated cutting them out with scissors.

 This is a split letter that I did.  I got the file for this one from a group on FB but I watched a video on how to do the split and designed one myself.  Here is the video
I will be making these as Christmas gifts.
Thanks for stopping by.

US Shopping Day Trip

We went on a one day shopping trip to the US yesterday.  I love our US shopping trips.  I get to stock up on paper and supplies.  We don't have Joann's here in Canada so paper stacks that are exclusive to Joann's we can't get.  Even at Michaels the prices are so much cheaper for the same items.  Our paper stacks here are $29.99 and go on sale usually for $17.99 and I stock up on them on my trips for at the most $11.99.  The US dollar and the Canadian dollar are almost at par so it really saves a lot of money and makes for a fun trip.
We left our house at 6:00am yesterday morning and got gas, made a stop part way for bathroom break, had a 20 minute wait at the border and we were still at our first stop of K-Mart by just after 8:00am.  From there we went to Joann's, Kirklands, Hobby Lobby and Walmart all in Niagara Falls, NY.  Then we headed over to Amherst, NY to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff to pick up my Silhouette Cameo(my Christmas gift from my Hubby) that they were holding for me.  A stop at McDonalds for lunch.  Our McDonalds don't have the chicken select anymore so I like to have them when I can.  The next stop was Michaels, another Joann's, Lane Bryant, Target, and finally AC Moore.  We were back home by 7:30pm and exhausted.  Now that is what I call a great day.
Here are the craft supplies that I got.

 This is my absolute favourite Christmas paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I should have bought 2 because I know it will get used a lot.
Thanks for stopping by, now it's time to go and craft.
