Peachy Keen Stamps Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop Day 2

Hello Peachy Friends, 
It's me again! Here's Day 2 of our Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop!
I hope you enjoyed yesterday's creations and are up for another round of gorgeous projects!

For all of my projects I used the In the Garden Face Assortment PK-1320! I love this set and I will go so far as to say it's my favorite PKS Face to date! AdOrAbLe!!!

I'll start things off with these super cute pillow boxes that I cut on my Silhouette Portrait. I put an oval window on them so you could see the candy cane Hershey kisses that I tucked inside. I wrapped each pillow box with tinsel yarn and attached a tag and little bell. On the tags I put a poem that I found on Pinterest and a super cut Elf that I also cut with my Portrait and stamped with my PKS!! 

Elf Kisses
With little elf eyes watching you. 
There's not a lot that Santa misses. 
So to help you be good today, 
Here's a bunch of sweet elf kisses.

I also created two cards. I used these super adorable cut files from Treasure Box Designs. I really love the look of these little cuties, they are so unique!!

As a little added something I made some place cards for our Thanksgiving Dinner. The Pilgrims are from Miss Kate Cuttable and the place card stand I just created myself with my Silhouette Designer Software and cut it all on my Portrait. 

Here's the place card at my nephew's seat at the table. 

Lastly, I made my parents a Thanksgiving card using the same cut files from Miss Kate Cuttables. I couldn't help my self these little pilgrims are so so adorable!

I hope you enjoyed my projects for the hop....and that they inspired you. If you have any questions, let me know via email.

A couple of layouts...

Here are a couple of pages that I've done recently. 

The first one I put together at the monthly crop at my church. I used my Gypsy and my Cricut Expression. The cake was cut out of Simply Charmed and I used my Peachy Keen Stamps to give it a face, PK-640 Princess Face Assortment!! The title is the font Learning Curve also a Cricut Cartridge. 

For the second layout I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut these adorable little puppy dogs. You can find the cut files for these little pups here at Bear Necessities

Silhouette Portrait and Peeps card

I've been thinking for a while about getting a Silhouette cutting machine. I love my Cricut but the ability to cut any font on my computer along with SVG's, not to mention being able to create and cut my own designs was just to strong a pull for me! I had to have one...

Well, it arrived a couple of weeks ago and I've been in heaven ever since. I adore this machine. It's tiny and compact which is nice. It's cutting ability is unbelievable! It will cut the most intricate designs with out even the tiniest tear of the paper! 
I've been cutting lots of SVG's that I've gotten on the internet. I've also downloaded lots of icon fonts to cut. My favorite SVG site is Paper Piecings by Nikki. Her artwork is adorable and she offers a freebie every day! Another site that I love is Miss Kate Cuttable. She also offers a freebie every day! 
Now, I've decided to try my hand at creating my own designs. I've watched a few youtube videos and downloaded Inkscape software which is free and enables you to create SVG's.
I started out by using a coloring page that I downloaded from the internet. I took it into Inkscape, cleaned it up and created this SVG to make my card. I have tons to learn but I am really enjoying the whole process and love the new freedom that my Silhouette Portrait gives me!

Here's my Peep's card....
The peeps and the title with the outline were all created in Inkscape and cut on my Silhouette Portrait!

Glittery Titles

I've been scrapping a few of my holiday photos and using these beautiful papers by TPC Studio called Sweet Christmas. The collection comes with an alphabet sticker sheet. The letters in the alphabet are larger than the average alpha sticker (about 1 3/4 inch tall) I decided to make some of my own smaller glitter alpha stickers to use along with them on my title.
First, I cut my title using the Cricut cartridge Learning Curve at 1 inch tall.
Then, I mixed about 1 teaspoon of Aleen's Tacky Glue with a few tablespoons of water and stirred it up really good (I used an old prescription bottle to mix the glue and water). Using a paint brush I covered each letter and then dipped the letter into some Martha Stewart fine red glitter.
 I let the letters dry and then I took the same watered down glue and painted over the glitter letters one more time. This helped to seal in the glitter to keep it from getting all over the place.
After my letters dried, I attached them to my layout with Scotch Quick Dry liquid glue

I love the glittery effect and they go so nicely with the alpha stickers that came with the paper!!

I hope you liked this quick tip and thanks for stopping by!!

Winner of the PKS Fond Farewell Blog Hop

Hello friends-
The past couple of days have been a non-stop flurry of activity for me and I'm just now able to take a minute to announce the winner of the Fond Farewell blog hop! My family and I drove from Rochester NY to Clifton Park NY last night during the blizzard! It took us 6 hours. We are all home safe and sound. And so happy that we left last night because the snow has not let up!! We had to drive through white out conditions but at least it was at the beginning of the storm and the plows were out in full force! on to the winner....
