I Don't Do Mornings...

Hello! It's Leanne from Created By Leanne!  I thought I would share a selfie of me in the mornings bahahahaha! The last few mornings I've been a complete Zombie not wanting to get up! Anyhoo, if I turn into a zombie I sure hope it's as cute as this one hee hee!

I've used the Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files for the base of my card. The cute girl zombie is from the Zombies Cutting Files. The coffee cup in her hands is from the Java Great Day Cutting Files. The sentiment is by My Creative Time, You Are Perk-fect stamp set

FUN Birthday Wishes!

Hello, everyone! Brianna here from Happy Scrapper. I have recently been selling my creations at my place of work and my customers have been requesting birthday cards, so for this card, that's what I focused on.

Well, I have one down in the books, now I just have a bunch more to create lol. I used the adorable Juggling Clown Cutting Files. You can find him in the $0.99 section of the store.

Juggling Clown Cutting Files

I used the print and cut feature in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to cut out this adorable little guy. I decided to add some shading/shadowing to his face using my IG1 Spectrum Noir marker. I wanted to add more dimension to him, so I added some homemade enamel dots, for his juggling balls (Thanks for the idea, Lisa) :) I also added some glossy accents to his nose and popped up and layered some elements on him.

I have been hoarding these big metal letters for a while now and thought this card would be perfect for them. My sentiment is from Scrappy Mom Stamps and is called Simple Sentiments. I finished it up by adding some ribbon, Lemonade Yellow Timeless Twine, and a button from my stash.

I hope you all enjoy my fun birthday card and thank you for stopping by!!

Friendship Is The Best Medicine by Leah Schaeffer

Hi all! My name is Leah Schaeffer and today is my first posting day here at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! When deciding what project to work on I thought about a friend who I've been chatting with a lot lately and decided to make a card for her. It is always so warming to me to think about the friends we have, and this friend in particular I know because of the incredible community of crafters! So I know she'll appreciate the card even more! 

I got these fun images from the Happy Pills Cutting Files. I had the idea to utilize the print and cut option using the Silhouette Cameo and made up my own sentiment on the label for the medicine bottle. Kinda cracked me up! Then I layered up a bunch of medicine pills (chill pills for sure!) and added a few details like the glossy accents on the pill bottle.

To get the shine but not the dimension using Glossy Accents I very carefully used my finger to spread it across the paper, using strokes in the same direction otherwise it would have shown. Then on the pills I used the Glossy Accents again along with a white gel pen. Simple, but the added gloss also goes with the printed polka dot paper I used.

I hope this inspired you to think outside the box a little. I thought these pills were so great and really wanted to use them, now I just need to get this in the mail!

Thanks again for visiting the blog today! 
Remember to come back for DAILY inspiration!
See ya soon!

Keep Calm and BUILD On!

Good morning!  Jeanne here, from Jeanne's Paper Crafts sharing my design team project for today!

I just LOVE the new(er) Master Builder cut files, so I figured it was about time to cut some of them out. :)

For the base of my card I used the offset feature to create a shadow for the image. Then I duplicated it, and welded the two together. The background paper is a Lego design that I purchased many years ago at a Scrapbook Expo in Utah. Isn't it perfect?!

For my sentiment, I used the Speech Bubbles cut files and then the print and cut feature. (I found the Lego font online and installed it.)

PPPR Baby Shower Blog Hop

Hey, everyone! I hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Baby Shower Blog Hop. My amazing Design Team and I will be sharing all sorts of baby shower and baby themed projects with you today that use Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. We also have a gift certificate up for grabs and a little freebie just for you guys! So, sit back, relax, and take in all of the baby shower goodness. You won't be disappointed! :)

For my projects, I decided to make some items that you may see at a baby shower. First, I made a fun little popcorn box that could be used as a little gift for a mom to be or as a shower favor.

I got this sweet pregnant woman and the baby's dress from the Mommy To Be set, and I added a little Peachy Keen Princess Face to the woman. Oh, and I want to add that the little white trim on the dress was SO very tiny that I decided to cut it from white vinyl. That worked out so well! I definitely need to try that again!

I didn't have the sentiment I wanted on a stamp, so I just used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo to add the sentiment to a Sentiment Spot. All of the links for these items can be found below. 

I also decided to create some fun cupcake wrappers and toppers that would be perfect for a baby shower. I got the images from the Changing Time and Baby Shower sets. I added a sweet face from Peachy Keen's Just Baby Faces set.  For the most part (except for the baby's it would show up) these are print and cut pieces. I just think printing and cutting cupcake toppers is so much easier.

Here are all of the products I used for these two projects:

Happy Easter Treat Bag

Hi, and Happy Thursday!
Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. Today, I would like to share with you a super cute little Easter treat holder I made. I used the Happy Pumpkin Treat Bag Cutting Files for the base of the treat holder.  I removed the mouth of the pumpkin before cutting then trimmed off the stem and leaves by hand. The egg shape and grass are from the Hoppy Easter Cutting Files. For the big egg shape I ran it thought the Cuttlebug  with my "Charles" embossing folder, then I smoothed some Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distress ink over the embossing and around the edges. The adorable little chick is from  the Cute Chicks Cutting Files. I used the Peachy Keen "Critter Faces" stamp set for the face. The sentiment is from the Pink by Design "Artisan Tags 2" stamp set, and I stamped it on a image from the Speech Bubbles Cutting Files.

What I used:
