DIY Christmas Gifts Family Tradition

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!

This is a pre-scheduled post that will be going up during my post partum break. If you’d like to stay in the know about all things baby, be sure to check me out on Instagram @thescrapmaster or check out my family youtube channel. I will be back to making regular videos on both channels as soon as I can.

So today I wanted to share my Christmas gifts idea with you.

This is something that I started a few years back & I think it is a great Christmas gift for family members. Especially now that we are having our little girl, this will be the perfect way for the family to get some extra photos and be able to keep up with our little girl’s life.

Enjoy!

Now I haven’t been great about sending these layout every single year, but I have tried to do so most years for the last few Christmases. This year I actually was WAY late! I said in the video mid-January I will send these out, but I actually decided to hold onto each set & add in 2 more pages covering our daughter’s birth. That way we weren’t mailing out two sets of photos shortly after one another. It delayed the gifts, but I know everyone will be thrilled to have newborn photos also.

I hope you liked this Christmas gift idea. Since I am sharing it late, if you decide to implement this new idea, you will be super early for this Christmas 🙂

Have a great day!

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!

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!

Mom’s Day Cameo Card

Hey everyone!

Today I just have a quick card to share with you that I made for Mother’s Day. I sent this card out to my mother-in-law. To cut out the mom & scallop layers, I used the Silhouette Cameo & just designed the cuts. I will get a cut file added to the SP Digi Shop shortly. The file is just on my other computer at the time of me writing this.

Mother's Day Card

The papers I used for this card are supplies I got from MarkerPOP.com as shown in yesterday’s haul video. I used the Hello Sunshine paper pad from Pink Paislee along with some of the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock.

The sentiment I used is from an SP & Company set called Best Mom Ever, which is now out of stock. I stamped it in a Stampin’ UP Ink, I think it is called Coastal Cabana.

To be honest, I had a little mishap while making this card. I actually filmed the entire card assembly process and then went to hit “stop recording”. Yeah, I never hit the “START recording” button. . . oops! Sometimes that’s the way things work lol. What’s the funniest thing you’ve done lately?
