Hi! This is Evelyn from My Little Craft Blog. I love to multitask, and so I always have something else to do while the television is on. Last week while watching Christmas shows, I was playing with my Silhouette Design Studio and some files from Designs on Cloud 9. I finally got a chance to print and cut them today!
Faith, here from the Designs from Cloud 9 Design Team.
project this week, I used the Pirate
Parrot file to create this birthday card for a young boy. I love how
easy this cutting file was to put together. My inspiration for this card came
from the cute pirate patterned paper. Luckily, Designs on Cloud 9 have so many cutting
files, I can always find the right file for a project. Searching under pirate
brought up enough files that I could even create all the decorations for a
pirate party if I wanted to.
I like to send a friendly card with a note or letter. Somehow it
seems to that it makes mail just that little 'happier' Like this cute little
penguin. Won't your day be just a little warmer were you to pull this from an

at all. The waiting time was all for the glitter glue to dry!
dimension shows up a little more on this picture. I attached the snowflakes
with sticky dots and the snowflakes and sentiment stamps are by Stampendous,
which I picked up from my local Michaels store.
Faith here from The Crafting Professor. For my Designs on Cloud 9 project this week, I used one of the tags in theSassy Girl Tags cutting file to create a birthday card for a friend. The tag comes in two layers, but I separated the layers in my Cricut Explore to add a third layer. It was super simple to do and gave me the opportunity to use some sassy colors. Check out the rest of the details on my blog: The Crafting Professor.
Hi! Evelyn from My Little Craft Blog here. It's my day to post, and I'm excited to show off some adorable sock monkeys!
Sock monkeys are so fun! My sisters and brothers and I all had one when we were growing up. I had fun making them myself, but my mom made the best ones!! As soon as I saw the Monkey Do file, I wanted it. I knew my siblings would get a kick out of seeing a sock monkey on their cards this year. All I needed to do was add a Santa hat to complete the look!
Looking for a CD disk the other day I was struck by how many of these disks I have just sitting around, useless, taking up space. It was time to put some of them to use.
So I made a coaster. A little seasonal friend to keep the tea and coffee rings off my desk and make me smile
first thing in the morning.
I used a cut file from Cool Winter Caps. These would make great fridge magnets too as well as cards or even place markers on a festive table!
I made a silhouette cut-out of the entire penguin, which I adhered to a sheet of white paper and finally to the disk. I made the silhouette cut-out as I wanted to inlay the coloured pieces of the picture so that the surface of the coaster would be as smooth as possible. I did not want too many bumpy areas.
The center hole on the disk also needs to be filled to prevent sagging. For that I used scrapped pieces of card stock that I punched out. I needed 5 to fill the hole.
This side of the disk I covered with an image from a paper pack. This way for Christmas day I can flip it over and have a Christmas picture. (The circular ridge in the middle shows up clearly here because the paper is rather thin) Cork or felt make very nice backings for these coasters too.
I added a couple layers of acrylic floor wax to seal the card stock (Modge Podge or a spray on sealer works well too!)
The sealer I used darkened the card stock as it soaked in.
For a final touch a bead of glitter glue around the edge of the disk works really well. I don't plan on adding it to this one though!
Hi! Hope your Thanksgiving Day was fun and full of good food and family! This is Evelyn from My Little Craft Blog here to continue on my theme of home for the holidays. I found a gorgeous card in the Designs on Cloud 9 shop that I just had to make, and it turned out as pretty as I imagined:
