Finally Facing The Cameo!

Hello! Today I am sharing a planner lay out that I am immensely proud of, I decided to try and print and cut a kit using my Cameo…now I know that doesn’t sound much to a lot of you guys but to me(and some other Cameo users) it can be a battle of wills usually resulting in me swearing and vowing to sell the Cameo!

This time was different, I put on some music, took in a nice wee Costa Latte and talked nicely to Cammy(the Cameo). I picked a kit from Etsy, it came with Silhouette cut files(obvs!) I dusted off the A4 sticker sheets I bought over a year ago and oh, funny story here…we got a new fancy shmancy printer a few weeks ago which I have not the foggiest how to load…hubby was out so I actually had to phone him to ask him how to load the printer! Nothing is ever plain sailing in my craft room lol.

After a 5 minute phone call, who knew the paper thingies were under the flat that you had to open to get the printed stuff out?

Here is my layout for this week. I am a bit behind as the anxiety demons took over at the weekend and I am slowly catching up with things.

I also used my trusty Steps Stickers from Beautiful Planning on Etsy, remember to use code CAROL15 for 15% off your order.

Thanks for popping by, I hope this inspires you to face your Cameo demons.

Shark Attack!

Hello, I was recently asked to make a card for a guy who is going swimming with a great white shark later in the year. The card was from his kids so I didn’t want to make the shark too scary.

I used my Cameo and made this card, which the recipient loved.

Graduation Card

Hello from a rather driech and wet Glasgow, typical Fair holiday weather.

I am slowly catching up and uploading pics of my recent makes and blogging them when hospital Wi-Fi is playing nicely 😉 Hubby is engrossed in F1 so perfect time to blog with a nice coffee.

I made this card for a graduation, the brief was that the graduate like green.

The papers are digi papers that have a great selection of images that are just perfect for these cards.

I popped lots of 3d foam from Stix2 to add dimension to the card.

Thanks for popping by, I will be uploading more makes as the days go by.

Cameo Fun!

Hello and happy Friday! Today I thought I would share a bottle tag and gift card holder I made at Christmas using my Cameo.

I really do forget how versatile my Cameo is and how it has something for every occasion known to me! I just love it! The gift card was for Costa Coffee, so I felt the coffee cup card holder was perfect, the wee card slotted inside once you lifted up the front of the cup.

It really is nice to put that wee bit of extra thought into someones gift with a pretty tag or gift card holder.

Have a good weekend, Carol.x
