Sisters Card



Not the best pic, I know.  I have 3 sisters, so I made a card for each of them and I had great fun making out the envelopes.  The ladies are from a font called Sewing Patterns 2.  I downloaded it from Dafont, which is my favorite free font web site.  I again, cut with the ECLIPS.

Team Mike's Minions


My daughter is playing basketball for the first time this year and they asked me to design the team shirt.  Obviously, the team name is Mike's Minions.  Very simple design, but FUN!  I got the svg from: http://www.okieladybug.com/2013/07/for-love-of-minions.html.  THANK YOU SO MUCH.  Again, cut with the Eclips.  I can't say enough good things about this machine.  It's like part of my family.  I have the CRICUT, which I love, it's just limited and I have the Cameo Silhouette, which I hate!  Don't take my word though, it's probably just me, but the learning curve on the Cameo was quite difficult after the ease of using the ECLIPS.

Kitchen aid BLING!


Yep! I decked out my kitchen aid!  I can't help myself.  Once again, using the eclips and a free svg I found, I transformed my ugly, OLD, kitchen aid into a decorative appliance for my kitchen.  I don't know about you, but mine never leaves the counter!

Gift bag and box for a baby shower SUPER HERO!



We took the onsies from the last post and wrapped them up to look like cupcakes and put them in this incredible cupcake box.   I decorated it using an ombre city scape svg that I googled and cut with my Eclips.  The colors are a bit unusual for a baby shower gift, but fit the theme perfectly.

Super hero baby shower present




Well, if you read the little lamb post, you see that the theme for the baby shower gift changed a little bit.  We went with Super Hero's!  I cut this using SVG files that I found on-line and cut them with my Eclips machine.  LOOK for the next post.  The wrapping (I think) turned out to be more fun than the gift itself.

Little Lamb

Ok, my daughter-in-law is going to a baby shower this week and she wanted a creative gift.  We are going to make some vinyl for some onsies (I haven't figured that part out yet), but I wanted to make a card and gift bag for the gift.  I decided to decorate a tin I got at the dollar store instead of the standard gift bag.  It turned out so cute:

I don't like that the white looks pink in these photos.  Someday I'll perfect picture-taking.  This will have to do for now!

I used the cricut craft room basic shapes and the cuttlebug for texture.  What do you think?
