Samantha Walker Guest Designer Spot!

Samantha Walker

Hi all! Today I am beyond thrilled to share with you all that I have the amazing honor to be the guest designer over at Samantha Walker’s blog TODAY!  Yay!  Before your head over and check out my two 3D projects using her amazing Silhouette cuts and paper from Carta Bella called Paris Girl, check out this fun and sassy project I made using four sweet tea pot cuts from her Silhouette cut collection.  You can find these cuts HERE.  DSC_6544

All I did was pick up a 10 inch blank scallop MDF wall hanging from Michales and designed the cuts in Silhouette Design Studio.  I free handed making a 10 inch circle using the stock shapes and using the stock font, I wrote up the saying and the take the four tea pots, ungrouped each tea pot and only kept the layer with the flourish design.  Then lined them up and sized the tea pots down and group together and positioned under the saying.sw word

I cut it out on vinyl, burnished to the wall hanging with transferred tape and spray painted.  I allowed the paint to dry and and pulled off the vinyl.  Hit with the sander and to distress and called it done!


This project is a bit of an inside joke around my house and the hubs and I have a good laugh when I coyly quote this to him when he asks how was my time with my girlfriends if I recently met up with them for a visit.  So, in the spirit of sassy fun, I decided to make this to hang in my craft room.

Now be sure to head over to Samantha Walker and check out the fun projects and video, yes I said video, I made for one of the projects!  YIKES! LOL!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “my sassy side” pie with me!


Uh-Oh! Someone May be Two-Timing on Her Cricut!

I have a confession to make. . .  I decided to join the Silhouette Cameo party and just received mine in the mail this week. This will never take away my love for my bug, but I did feel like I was two timing a bit on it! 🙂 However, this machine is soooo cool!  I am just getting my feet wet with figuring it out and I started that with this project I made for the father of a very close friend. We were invited to his 75th  birthday party and I wanted to make something very special for him.

He has a nickname of the “Pumpkin Man” since he makes family and close friends ceramic jack-o-lanterns with their names carved in the mouth smile. They also light up and they are perfect for Halloween!  When we got married, we got a big pumpkin with our last name for a wedding present and when both of my girls were born, I got one with their names carved for a baby gift.

With all that in mind, I decided to make a sign for his front porch.  I found a 12×18 wood board at Michael’s and I painted it in two layers of brown, burnt  orange and white.  I then sanded it down to distress and weather it.

I then cut out vinyl lettering in the Times Roman font and I found a cut at the Silhouette shop of the pumpkins.  I used the cut twice, but flipping the second (which ca be done by a simple right click to find that feature).  I cut this out on a gold metallic vinyl that I got from

I think this turned out really cute and it was a great first-time project!

Thanks for sharing a piece of  a tad bit of two-timing on my bug” pie with me.
