My Silhouette Cameo!







Hi Papercrafters!


So I bit the bullet and bought myself a Cameo!
You ask what is a Cameo? A Cameo is an electronic cutting machine.
It is like the Cricut in that it it cuts images for you. It also has a print & cut feature. 
Please do see their website as i'm sure I'm not covering the endless possibilites that you can do with this machine. 

There was a great deal on HSN and a bunch of my insta friends all bought one!

I was having buyers remorse the first day but today I am soooo
HAPPY! YAY!
I could scream but I'm working!


If your would like one please ck out their site here:

Now Amy Tangerine ( I love her) is also having a promotion on her site if you missed the HSN deal.

You can find her blog here: http://www.amytangerine.com/blog

Instagram is on fire these days with colorshine! 

So here it is and I just want to say I loooove it!

My Heidi Swapp Pretty Wall Art





Make Pretty Stuff!


Hey there Crafters!
I wanted share some wall art I made with Heidi Swapps colorshine & paper.

I had these products and I was thinking.... what should I make? I have not bought any memory files or albums so I was limited to just the paper & the colorshine. 

I had watched HS on you tube to get some ideas. One idea that she demonstarted was using 2 colors. 

So I picked my two colors and thought oh perfect I will make some wall art for Easter!

Check it out! 




This is in my hallway entry where these hooks are always filled with backpacks & coats.



So this is what I had to work with... (below) my 12 x 12 Chic Paper &  Color Shine Paper


 

Ta da!


Sorry for the bad lighting it was 1am ... I'm a late night crafter!


The process of coloring my paper... I added the gold to the bottom to blend.  


Finished product below...



Here are the colors I currently own but I need more to complete my set!!


Below 

My Amy Tangerine monthly stamp meets Heidi Swapp's colorshine meets Project life! 

All this to make pretty PL tags for my instafriends Cyndy & Cynthia.     


Thank you for stopping by my Pretties!
