Gone Vinyl Crazy!

When I bought my Silhouette Cameo January last year I also purchased three starter kits, one of them was for Vinyl.  Which I have finally gotten around to playing!

...and play I did, I went just a little crazy!  I started small with some vinyl words on my craftroom chalk board. 

 Perfect quote thank you Heidi Swapp, it looks great on the board.  This I created using different fonts.

Love, love, love this quote which went above our bed!  The font used for the word 'Always' is Aquarelle, Times New Roman for the rest.

Fell in love with this quote and wanted to do something for Valentines but  missed the boat on that  I finally have this on a wall in our hallway.  Wordart - Our beautiful love story - vinyl by Kolette Hall, available from the Silhouette Store.
How could I not include these words in amongst the Family Photos.  Cut file - My Family by Jennifer Wambach also available from the Silhouette Store.
...and I just couldn't go past putting signage on the Bathroom and Toilet doors, hehehe!

I had a ton of fun but will say it is not something you should do late at night when tired.  Some of the cuts were a little fiddly, resulting in a little bit of frustration but that was because I didn't take my

Have a great day!

Fun and Fresh Embossing!

OH MY STARS... where has a month gone! And what a month... we will have an addition to the family in October, another Grand baby and I am soooo excited.  I had a weekend visit with the Mumma and Pappa to be, then my DD came to visit us for a week.  Then unfortunately I was a little under the weather for a couple of weeks. In amongst all that I was making wedding invitation samples for a Nephew and his Bride to be...phew!

But this last weekend....wooooo!!! Got my crafty groove on and 'made pretty stuff'... lots of it, hahahaha!  Anyways back in March I entered the Couture Creations Facebook comp and I WON!!! So absolutely stoked to have won as I looooovvve Couture Creations embossing folders sooooo much. 

My winnings was a full set (10) Fresh & Fun Embossing Folders...YAAAAAAYYYY!!!  This was the happy mail I received, a beautifully wrapped parcel!

Here are a couple of cards I've made so far, the first folder used was the Peacock Pleasure folder.  I had seen a few peek-a-boo cards popping up acoss the web and thought this folder would be perfect. The stamps are by Kazzazz and Distress Markers were used to colour in the stamped images. 
I saw a card on Pinterest that my card below was based on... using the Petal Pleasures and Super Powder Puff folders.  I might also add this whole card was cut with my Silhouette Cameo :grin: 

and last but not least I wanted to play with a bit of colour and thought the Extra Flint folder would suit fun colours.  I used distress ink, then embossed, then with a bit of sandpaper gently rubbed the surface to reveal the embossed design a bit more.  Some Amy Tangerine ribbons and a fun, colourful card was complete. 

A huge thank you to Couture Creations for my prize, I know I will get a lot of use out of these folders.

Have a great day!
