Happy 2017 with a cutfile

Wow!  I can’t believe I’ve neglected the blog since April.  I suck.  I’m sorry.  =(

A lot went down in ’16.  A lot of it wasn’t good.  But!  It is now 2017 and it is gonna kick can and take names!

So I wish you blessings in the new year, and I’m giving you a cutfile!

This is a cluster I made, along with a single tree and a 2016 so you can make a cute wintery/Christmasy page.  Simply click on the photo to open a new window to the dropbox file.

Designed for use with the Silhouette Portrait, can also be used with the cameo, I just happen to have a portrait. Hope you enjoy!

Aprilish with a cutfile

Hello!

I say Aprilish because mother nature has been a little finicky with us here in Michigan.  We had three beautiful, 70-something degree days, and some days where it didn’t get above freezing.  I was really hoping for a beautiful spring day today, but the forecast only calls for a high of 57.  Bummer.  Oh well, I keep hearing that we are going to go from cold to hot, so I will stick out the cold stint.  At least the trees are blooming.

I have two little videos on my youtube channel if you’d like to check those out, they’re just haul videos.  I want to work on some process videos, but first I need to get some sort of space worked out.  I was thinking about buying a little tripod for my phone, it is just easier to use my phone instead of my camera, as silly as that sounds.

I have a new cutfile for you today!  (click on the pic to go to my dropbox)

It was inspired by this video from the Crafty Maven Getaway Channel.  I was really excited by the pyramid of hearts in both her layout and the layout she was scraplifting.  So thank you, Evi, if you happen to see this!

I personally have a silhouette portrait at home, but I thought this would be more usable on a cameo mat.  If you aren’t comfortable changing the cutfile yourself for a portrait mat, let me know and I can make one for the portrait and upload it.

 

Thanks for stopping by!  Adios!

 

 

 

Adventures in Silhouette

As poetic as that title sounds, I really am talking about using my Silhouette electronic die cutter.  (Is it really a die cutter if there aren’t any dies?)

I have been playing in Silhouette Studio and I think I am going to attempt start a series where I will upload a free cut file twice a month.  (You know my track record, I’m distracted easily… But I will try my best to keep this up.

Today’s is the word “amazeballs” that I created with two different fonts and then I edited a few letters to look more aesthetically pleasing to my own eye.  It is going to be a title to one of my pages of a picture of my husband and myself before we were married.

I am also going to work on uploading tutorials and other videos to youtube, I’ve been trolling long enough.  Keep an eye on my channel.  Right now I think all that is viewable is a video the birds and me talking to them.
