My niece was visiting a couple of weeks ago and she wanted to make some t-shirts for her and her husband.
Off to my craft room we go! She wanted some summer/beach/boating themed shirts for them. After looking in the Silhouette Design store and getting a few images, we also created some of our own images.
They boat a lot, so, of course, Boat Hair Don't Care was on the list. Also on the list was a Beach Life Shirt, a couple of fishing shirts, and a shirt with their boat name on it. We cut all the images out on my Silhouette Cameo, and heat pressed them on the shirts with my heat press.
My niece had soo much fun, she ordered a Silhouette Cameo and Heat Press for herself. She is now enjoying the craft of HTV!!
Thanks for looking! Have a crafty day! ~ Deb

I finally purchased my first Dylusions Journal! I was soo excited to get it I just had to do a page right away.
My favorite season is Summer and the Beach, so going with that theme, I started my page. For the background, I used Tim Holtz's Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans and Broken China. I made a wave stencil and cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo. I got out my Faber Castell Whipped Spackle and some blue acrylic paint. I blended the two together to use with the stencil. I placed the stencil over the page and applied the colored Whipped Spackle.
I knew I needed sand, so I went across the street to the beach and picked up a small jar of sand. I mixed the sand with some Mod Podge just until all the sand was covered. Using a spackle knife, I applied the sand to my journal page and pressed hard to make sure it stuck. Then it was time to wait for the blue background and sand to dry.
While that was drying, I stamped my Julie Nutting doll on a piece of Julie's A4 Buff paper. That is a great paper pad because it gives you several different skin tones. For the clothes, I paper pieced them and glued them on. The hair and hair band were colored using my Spectrum Noir markers.
Once everything was dry, I glued my girl so that her knees were in the sand. I then added a couple of brass shell embellishments on the sand, and a sailboat in the distance. The sentiment says it all! "Simple Times".....they are the times I cherish while at the beach where you can forget everything and totally relax while listening to the sea.

I know this post is a little late, but better late than never, as my Mom always told me!
A friend of mine needed an Easter basket for her daughter. She couldn't find a lined basket that she liked. So, she bought a nice white basket and some really pretty fabric to make a liner. Along with the basket and fabric, she also dropped off a onesie to be deisnged for Easter.
I had never made a basket lining before, so the first place I went was Google. I don't know how I ever lived without Google! You can find everything there! I found directions on how to make a basket lining for a round basket, took the measurements I needed and cut the fabric.
The first part was to sew the bottom circle to the side fabric. The side fabric had to be gathered some to fit the circle. The next to sew together was the flap. I measured twice and cut once for the front flap and back flap pieces.
The next to sew together was the flap. I measured twice and cut once for the front flap and back flap pieces. I pinned the flap pieces onto the lining just to be sure they were the right length.
Then sewed the flap pieces to the basket lining and added some ribbon at the end of each flap so that it could be tied on the basket.
On to the onesie. My friend had picked out a super cute Easter image for the onesie. I purchased this image from Apex Embroidery and cut it out of Heat Transfer Vinyl. Using my heat press, I pressed it onto the onesie.
My friend was extremely happy with both the basket and the onesie!! That sure makes a girl feel good!

I was tickled pink when I was asked to make a banner for my soon-to-be grandson. My son had asked that i use the words “Little One” so that he could hang it in the baby’s room. I wanted to use fabrics for the pennants so that it would hang well and last for a while. I had purchased the Snips and Snails mixed media pack and that’s where it all started. With the colors I used, it looks perfect over his changing table! I also made a coordinating diaper cake utilizing paper from Snips and Snails,
I was asked by a friend to make a hunting themed diaper cake for her daughter's baby shower. The only ideas she could give me was camouflage and orange. So, I put my thinking cap on and headed over to the Silhouette Design Store. In the Store, I found a 3D deer head which I thought would be perfect for the cake topper! I proceeded to cut all the pieces out for the deer head.
I cut out two sets of antlers so that I could add some thin wire between them to be able to bend, if needed. I then glued the antlers, and green "plaque", and slid the head pieces on the head.
Then it was time to work on the cake. I rolled and rubber banded 76 size 2 diapers. I use size 2 in case the mom-to-be wants to use the cake as a decoration for a while.
I could not find any camoflage ribbon, so I purchased 1/2 yard camo fabric and 1/4 yard orange fabric.
I cut the camo fabric at 3" and the orange fabric at 1.5" to use as my ribbon. I also made some bows out of the fabric to place on the backwhere the ribbon meets.
For the front, I knew I wanted to add his initials. I found an antler monogram file in the Silhouette Store. I added his initials and placed them inside. I then placed the antler monogram center front of cake. I also added a couple small images on the bottom and top layer of the cake on the front.
And here is a picture of it surrounded by all the presents at the baby shower. It was a huge hit at the shower!
I hope you enjoyed my version of a deer hunting diaper cake!! Have a crafty day ~ Deb
