This was my first attempt at vinyl on tumblers.  I personalized each of  these for my Nieces and Nephew and then I filled them with some Easter candy.

This was also my first try at layering things like the Spiderman and the soccer ball.  I will need some practice with it.

Thanks for stopping by.

9 Months til Christmas 2013 Blog Hop

Another month closer to Christmas and hopefully another month closer to some warm weather.  I have had enough of winter. 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 start at the beginning then you can go to Shari's blog.
Our theme for this month is the colour green.  I should have double checked the theme before I started my first project.  It was origanlly painted purple and then when I checked and saw that the theme was green I ran to Michaels and picked up this awesome green metalic acrylic paint.  It turned out really nice.  This is a leftover piece of MDF that I had used for chalkboards last Christmas.  This one measures 21"x13".
 The words are cut in white vinyl and were cut in two sections and then matched up.  I will definitly be making more of these for Christmas gifts.

My next project is a fun and sexy card.  We all have that one person that this card would be perfect for, that might want this for Christmas. lol  As soon as I saw this digi stamp I knew that I had to have it.  It is by Redonkulous Designs, they have some hilarious digi stamps available.  The link to this stamp is right below, be sure to look around at their other digi's.
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Baha Breeze (SU),White(Gina K Designs), Blue Christmas(Recollections)

You Are My Sunshine

I made this for a baby shower gift.  I like that it is appropriate for a babies room but could be used anywhere in the home and it isn't babyish. 
The saying is cut from vinyl and attached to the grey polka dot paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to stop by on Monday for the 9 Months til Christmas Blog Hop.

Clean And Simple

Here are a couple of clean and simple cards using leaves from the Sil store.  I really like this cut and think it would look really good in a frame.  I used a couple of new Cuttlebug folders for the background.  They are chicken wire and quartrefoil.
 I love the touch of Calipso Coral from SU.
Thanks for stopping by.  I will have a new home decor post on Wednesday.

Cupcake Toppers

My daughter was asked to make 8 doz. cupcakes for a baby shower.  She is making fondant for for 1/2 of them and I make toppers for the other 1/2. 
I designed these using files from the Sil store and print and cut them.  I think I got the easy part of the job. LOL  Making 96 cupcakes is a lot of cupcakes.
