DIY Nursery Canvas Wall Art Tutorial using the Silhouette Cameo

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!

I majorly slacked on finishing up these canvases until yesterday & by the time we hung them up, the lighting was too dark to take photos or finish my video. I had to wait until this morning to get the photos of the wall. I also had a couple of silly upload mistakes which lead to more delays lol. Next week, I will be prepared because my video is half way filmed already 😉

So let’s get to today’s project & video!

DIYcanvases_111214

I made some wall art for our baby girl’s nursery. Her nursery is going to be all pink, aqua, and teal with a mermaid/under the sea theme! I am really happy with the way things are shaping up, but I’m not ready to do an entire nursery tour yet. It will happen sometime within the next 3 months hopefully (before little one gets here lol!!).

I got the idea to make wall canvases from various photos I have seen on Pinterest of other baby girl nurseries. I just took that inspiration and ran with it. I used my Silhouette Cameo for the major part of the canvases, the shapes! Below the video, I have listed all the shapes I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store so you can purchase any of those if you’d like to do so. The titles were made by me & they are freebies I’ve got in the SP Digi Shop. Feel free to grab those (links also following the video).

Enjoy!

Party Animal Birthday Card + Treat Bag

Hey everyone!

I forgot that I had this cute little birthday set to share with you this week so I am going to have my Project Life video on Friday.

card_903143

This little gift set was something I made recently for my friend’s son who turned 3! He had just been to the zoo & loved the animals so I thought that wild animals would be a good theme to go with. And sure enough, when we went out to lunch, he was wearing a shirt with wild animals on it 🙂

I whipped up this little gift set in maybe 20 minutes. It went together really quickly. Children seem to love a personalized little treat and it is so easy to make something simple for a child to put a smile on his/her face. Seriously, it was as simple as 3 Oreo cookies & he definitely enjoyed it.

My photos aren’t the best, but you still get the idea!

card_903142

For privacy reasons I took the photos before I put his name on the treat bag. I had added his name with some mini alphas from Echo Park right after taking the photos.

For the card & treat bag, I started off cutting out two of the label shapes with my Big Shot. These are from a nesting dies set from Stampin’ UP. I used the largest one for the baggie topper & one of the medium ones for the card front.

The stamping and inking was all done with Stampin’ UP inks: Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, and Chocolate Chip. I personally love this color combo, especially for boys (although I would probably use it for a girl too because it’s so pretty lol).

To do the inking on the edges of the shape and for the “grass”, I used Wild Wasabi with the Tim Holtz ink applicator tool. I have the old rectangular shaped one but I have heard awesome things about the new mini one that is round. It’s definitely on my wish list. One of my crafty friends mentioned that she doesn’t get any harsh lines with it since it is rounded vs rectangular. Sometimes I still get a harsh line here and there so it would be nice to have the other ink applicator. Which applicator do you have/prefer?

The cute little animal stamps are a stamp set from Stampin’ UP called Zoo Babies.

The ribbon I used is from Stampin’ UP but it’s long retired. It’s Wild Wasabi striped grosgrain.

The card base is Pacific Point cardstock, also Stampin’ UP. Sensing a brand loyalty here? LOL

The bag topper and the sentiment label shape were both cut from Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream cardstock. I scored the bag topper in half with my Martha Stewart score tool.

The sentiment stamp is one of my SP and Company sentiments that is retired.

And that’s it for this card & treat bag.  I hope you have a great day!!

Silly Holiday Treats Ideas

Hi everyone!I have some Silly Holiday Treats projects to share with you, of course using the new Silly Holiday Treats stamp set.  At the end of this post, I have some suggestions for other treats that can be used with this stamp set.I created this stamp set because I just think silly treats are SOOOO cute! I see great silly treats on Pinterest a lot &; I wanted a stamp set that made it easy to make a treat. I showed these treats to my hubby & he laughed A LOT. Success!

IMG_1107

First up, I have a quick photo tutorial showing you how quick it was to whip up some treats.


You will need the following supplies for this first stamp set:

Fill the pillow box with your treat/candy & close up the ends.

Wrap ribbon around the pillow box using a strong adhesive.

Cut zig zag circle out of red cardstock using the die from Stitched Journaling Shape & Arrows set.

Stamp zig zag circle with the silly holiday treat stamp that matches your treat. I chose  to use the Penguin Poop stamp. If the sentiment is too long, you can stamp it on two lines on your zig zag circle.

And that’s it! This is a super cute little treat someone is sure to laugh at and enjoy 🙂

The patterned paper I used for the next two came from the Tis the Season collection from Echo Park which was included in the September SP Monthly kit. I decided to discontinue the monthly kits, I will talk more about this decision on the next Sunday Scoop.

I also made Snowman Poop using mini marshmallows in a cello bag. I made the tag out of the Stitched journaling card from the Stitched Journaling Shape & Arrows set. Then I punched a hole in one corner & closed the bag with twine. The twine is from The Twinery: Maraschino and Honeydew.

The snowflakes were stamped from the Penguin Skating stamp set.

Then I made a Reindeer Poop treat using some Hershey Drops candies in a poly bag. Again I cut out the stitched journaling card & zig zag shapes from the Stitched Journaling Shape & Arrows die set. This time I decorated it with dies. I used the following: Pink heart & white banner from the Journaling Shape & Elements Die Tools set. Then I stamped the Reindeer Poop in green ink.

I left room to write To and From with names on there.

Here are some possible treat ideas for ya!

  • Brown M&M’s with one Red M&M for Reindeer Noses
  • Whoppers with one Atomic Fireball for Reindeer Noses
  • Colorful M&M’s for Grinch Pills (or use just the green ones)
  • Green Tic Tacs for Grinch Pills
  • Hershey Kisses for any of the poops
  • Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats for Lumps of Coal

  • What other treats could be used with the Silly Holiday Treats stamp set?
  • What Silly Holiday Treat stamp is your fave?
  • What is your favorite winter holiday food/treat?
