Today’s YouTube LIVE was loads of fun!!!
I simply loved creating this card AND I showed how to do it in both Cricut and Silhouette Cameo software.
I have to say….when I made the first prototype I was thinking… eh…yeah….that’s ugly. BUT when I created the actual card and added some fun embellishments, the card came to LIFE!! I can’t help but think you’ll agree!!!
Here is the video!
We are starting a new weekly challenge over on my facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cuttingupwithpattyanne/
It is going to be sooo much fun AND we are all going to take our cardmaking skills to the next level with all the practice we will be getting.
I have already posted the first Challenge on the group page. Here is the video that goes with it. I hope that you will join us whether you use a Cricut or Cameo!!
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope that everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend (if you live in the US) and didn’t eat tooooo much turkey! Unfortunately, I either ate too much turkey and stuffing and potatoes and green beans and …. OR it was the three heaping tablespoons of homemade whipped cream on top of the banana pudding, pumpkin pie and brownie that did me in for the day LOL.
These 14″ Print then Cut Nutcrackers were soooo much fun to create. To create them I just grabbed a free image off of google images and brought the images into Silhouette Studio (for either my Cricut Explore Air or my Cameo).
The most fun part was embellishing them!! I can’t wait to use these as part of my decorations this Christmas!!

Hello, hello everyone!!
I have got a terrific new site to share with you! When you use this site, you can create patterns for your Cricut machine (Design Space) or your Silhouette Cameo machine (Silhouette Studio) or your ScanNCut machine (Canvas)!!!
These patterns are terrific for print then cut cardstock OR print then cut heat transfer materials for t-shirts, bags, etc!
Here is the link to the site AND below you will find a short video on how to use the site for Silhouette machines and Cricut machines!
I LOVE it when I can create beautiful cards for my Cricut and Cameo machines without having to purchase special stamps or images. This card was made with FREE dingbats (ok for commercial use) and free font from dafont.com (I have all the details in the info under the video.)
I hope you enjoy this video and it spurs you on to create your own beautiful cards!!
I decorated my new Cameo 4 with this pretty vinyl. While it is htv vinyl, you KNOW I would NEVER heat apply anything to this machine so I just used double sided tape. I am glad I used this rather than permanent vinyl because I can change up the design whenever the mood strikes!! You can get the skin in the Library.
Skin for Cameo 4
I’m on a roll today!! Two videos!! I really wanted to get this one done as a few people asked for it!
Join this LIVE recorded video to see how to make really cute stickers that you can put on tins for gifts!
Here’s the thumbnail from the recording.
Yahoooooo, my Foil Quill arrived this morning and I am really excited to get going with it. Since a lot of you asked, I wanted to give you a bit of info that I’ve gotten from my research.
Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post where I do the LIVE unboxing!!!
The following materials can have foil applied to them easily:
- card stock non textured
- card stock textured
- cotton fabric
- satin ribbon
- thin fun foam
- faux leather
I also found that the following types of foil work well with the Foil Quill
- Contour creations
Anyhooo, I’m pretty excited to get mine. Grab yours here!! As I mentioned in the video, I got the smaller ‘set’ so that I could try it out and make sure that I liked how it worked. If you’d like to take a look at the larger set, click HERE.
