Monogrammed chevron design tumblers

It's Sunday!!! I was glad when they said unto me "come let us go unto the house of the lord". Happy Sunday everyone. Today I am bringing to you all some tumblers that I did as a special request for a friend who is turning 40 this month. She and some girl friends are having a getaway birthday celebration Puerto Rico. 

She asked that each girl last initial of their last name be monogrammed on a tumbler with their first name spelled out. Well having access to a silhouette cameo machine and their design store made this all to easy! 

Here are the tumblers...

The design was purchased in the silhouette store as well as the font used to spell out the names. I used oracal 631 vinyl and of course transfer paper to apply the vinyl.

I discovered vinyl years ago when I first got my Cricut expression machine and have been in love with it ever since!!! 

Birthday gift card holder

Happy Saturday! 

Just a quick post today. The kids were invited to a birthday party today and at the last minute I realized I needed a card. So I quickly put this gift card holder/card together using a file I purchased from the silhouette design store. This was so easy to cut and assemble. It took all of ten minutes if that long.

I had purchased a target gift card and it fit perfectly inside. For the sentiment, I used a stamp set by "Fiskars" titled "happy birthday".  The ink pad  I used is black by  close to my heart. If you are interested in purchasing any close to my heart products, please click on the "shop with me" tab or visit my online business address at

Get "Whale" card

Happy Wednesday!!!

Thanks so much for following and commenting on my blog. Today I am showcasing a card I made for my neighbors son. Unfortunately he was attacked by the family dog and suffered major injuries. Well he is home now after a long hospital stay and extensive surgeries. Little Jackson has a long recovery ahead of him. Keep him in your prayers. 

Anyways, I used my Cricut explore along with the design space application to make him a card. I also went on a shopping spree and brought him some little toys to help brighten his day.

Here's the card and I honestly don't remember what the measurements were but it's a mini card with the matching envelope. The image can be found on the wild card 2 Cricut cartridge. 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment so I know you came.

Have a happy rest of the week!

Personalized Waterbottles

Happy September! 

WOW! Is all I can say. We are entering the last 4 months of the year. Time waits for no one which means I don't have time to waste doing none crafty things, LOL!!! 
So today I decided to personalized some water bottles for me and the kids.  This weekend we are going hiking, fishing and camping which required new water bottles!!!

The cut file came from the silhouette design store and of course I used my designer edition software and silhouette machine to complete the project. Vinyl I already had in my stash and it is the oracal 651 kind. 

I'm sure you all are wondering where my husbands water bottle is at right? Well the answer to that question is this, it's still at the store. Oops I forgot about getting him one, LOL!!! Will make a quick run tomorrow and pick him up one. 

So here are the water bottles. I hope you are inspired by them.

If you have any questions please feel free to comment here and I will gladly answer.

Thanks and have a good evening!
