Birthday Card

Love Jaded Blossom Dies and Stamps which allowed me to whip up this card in no time flat!!  My silhouette machine is a dream too with the print n cut feature!!  
So my daughter needed a birthday card for a friend and I decided to coordinate the card with the gift.  The little girl loves Littlest Pet Shop so the gift was a bunch of the cute little guys and then I found this image of one for the card.
I can see myself making this card again as my daughter absolutely loved it and was proud to give it to her best bud!!

Bee Mine

Hi there!! This is Candace from Candi O. Designs and I'm here to showcase a new cut file by SVG Cutting Files that will be available in store  today ~ "Bee Mine".    Isn't this bee just the cutest ever!!  I really had too much fun designing with him that I got "lost in bees" and created a few projects to show how versatile he is when combined with other files!!
   I used the wine bottle tags to fit over this chocolate bar and then decorated with the new bee mine file.  The tag and label with sentiments are from My Creative Time.  Added some ribbon and twine with gems to complete this treat!

 Don't you just love this BEE!!!  I used the Handled Candy Pocket file, which I only used one of the pockets inside so I could add a large square candy bar and then added the Bee Mine file.  The sentiment and label are from My Creative Time.  Added some enamel dots and ribbon to complete the look. 

I found these mini Hershey's that have "bee" theme on the wrapper and knew they would be perfect to create a treat with this bee file!!  I used the Mini Nugget Platform Bases and increased the size a bit to hold these chocolates two deep so there are 6 inside the base.  Next, I picked the label edge (comes with the nugget file) to go on top and then added the bee file ~ yes he is perfect!!!  The label die and sentiment are from My Creative Time and then I added heart gems and closed up the box ends with twine.  

So this project, I wanted to show how the Bee Mine file doesn't just have to be for Valentines.  By changing the paper colors of the cut, it can be used for an everyday card or project!!  The card file is new, Ornate Base-3 which will be available for purchase Friday and made the perfect base to add the bee.  The sentiment and hexagon dies are from My Creative Time.  I completed the card by adding twine and enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Birthday Boy

It's my son's birthday tomorrow and needed to make up something quick!!  You think I'd learn as it's the same day each year but just coming out of Christmas really sets me back!  The older he gets, the harder it seems to find him that special gift and especially when he just got a bunch for Christmas.  Well I thought about it (quickly) and came up with making him his very own coupon book.  I filled with a bunch of coupons he can take advantage of throughout the year.  You know as a kid there are just things you don't want to do, heck I think we feel that as adults!!!  Anyways, I made up coupons like, One day off of Chores, Free lawn cutting pass, Free vacuuming day, Movie Night and a bunch more personalized for him and his lifestyle.  Knowing my son, he will be very pleased with this gift!!
Products Used:
Die: Lifestyle Crafts ~ Coupon Book
Paper: Jillibean Soup ~ Birthday Bisque
Punch: Stampin Up Ticket Corner
Ribbon and enamel dots

Needed some birthday cards to give too so just took the remainder papers and die cuts to quickly made these cards.

So my brother was complaining on how much cards are to buy in the store......kinda pricey!  Well to help him out this year, I made a few cards for him to give our mom for those important holidays that you'd better not forget, like her birthday, mother's day and Christmas.  Here are two cards I made and better get in the mail to him fast since our Mom's birthday is this month.....(Mom if you are seeing this...pretend you didn'!!)

My Mom loves sunflowers so this was a perfect combo ~ my brother is so thoughtful...haha!!

 Products Used:
Cardstock: American Crafts
Twine, enamel dots and sequins

For Mother's Day, I wanted to have a balance between masculine and feminine.  Since this is from my brother, didn't want too frilly but since it's for my Mom, wanted a little bit "girly".  I think this card was the perfect balance.

Products Used:
CTMH: Just to Say Stamp Set ~ Cricut Collection
Paper: Simple Stories ~ Homespun
Twine, enamel dots and gems

Best Sister Ever!!!!  And my brother thought store-bought cards were expensive, wait til he gets my "bill" ~ lol!!!
