For the Valentines

I can't believe the New Year is just two days away and I'm already thinking Valentines day. This is my version of a Valentine post card. It's really simple and fast to make so you can quickly make a lot of them for all of the Valentines in your life.

The tiny bows is what took me the longest to make. You can use any sort of embellishment you would like but, I did include the tiny bows in the cutting files. The cutting files are in .svg, .dxf, and of course Studio.

You can download the zipped cutting files here.

Christmas Card Sentiments

These sentiments are in Studio format only because they are set up to add to a card insert or cover as a Print an Cut file. If you think you can use them in another format, please email me and I'll make a converted file for you.

I still haven't completed all of my Christmas cards and thought their may be others out there just like me who could use a sentiment or two.

The sentiments are a lot crisper looking than the screenshot I took of the cutting file. I thought you would want to know this. :)

Good luck with all of your holiday creations and have lots of fun crafting and creating. xxx - Debbie

Reindeer Stables and More

It's been a whirlwind around our home trying to get caught up for the up coming holidays. I'm happy to say I finally finished Santa's village even though, sadly, I'm still a bit under the weather but keeping the faith.

When I returned to Noella Designs what to my wandering eyes did appear a reindeer stable, Santa, elves, and a cute little reindeer.

There rose such a clatter I ran to my computer to fix this matter.

I with my Studio software and the designs I found at Noella in just a little while. I was off to make another cute Christmas cutting file.

Some re-sizing, and line drawing took place. I couldn't wait to see Santa's cute little face.

When it was all complete, I jumped to my feet. It was off to the craft room like I was placing a bet. I couldn't wait to see all these cuties cut with my sweet Silhouette.

The files were all cut, folded, and stuck together with some dabs of glue. I'm so happy to be able to share these cutting files with all of you.

Time for me to post some pics, then turn out the light. Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.

All of these downloadable cutting files are in .svg, .dxf, and Studio cutting file formats.

Deck the Halls Pop Up Card

I'm back! Yes, it's still a road to travel but I'm on my way to healing. The best news ever was given to me yesterday when I learned the biopsy came back as BENIGN!!...woohoo!

Before my surgery I was working on another Pop Up Christmas card. Only recently, did I feel like test cutting this file. I'm happy to be sharing this with all of you. I hope it will help with your holiday card making. Hugs, Debbie

 This cutting file is in .svg, .dxf, and Studio formats. You can download it here: Deck the Halls Pop-Up Card

I wanted to make sure I let everyone know the card embellishments on the front of the card (in the picture below) are not included in the cutting file. I know you all will make yours beautiful.

Nativity Pop Up Card

As I am getting my mind prepared for having surgery this coming Tuesday, I've tried to keep my hands and head busy. It's pretty easy for me to stay busy as my favorite holiday season nears. I love Christmas! The celebration of our Lord's birthday is a time for reflecting on the blessings of giving. With this in mind, I would like to start off giving everyone what I hope is the first of a series of Christmas pop up cards.

This cutting file has the .svg,, .dxf, and Studio cutting file. Have fun making your holiday cards. I hope this one will be useful. The front of the card isn't my design so it's not included in this cutting file.You can purchase it from the Silhouette store. :)

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs, Debbie

Lettering Delights Create A Face set

Right now, Lettering Delights is offering a free file cutting folder. Once I went to check out the folder and saw the new Create A Face sets; I had to get them. I know my great nieces and granddaughters will have so much fun with these.

I will let everyone in on a secret, "DON"T BUY CHEAP MAGNETIC SHEETS!" .....LOL. The time it took me to make these could have been cut in half if I didn't buy these cheap printable magnetic sheets that promised the world and QUICK DRYING...NOT! I really couldn't believe the mess.IWhat brand of magnetic sheets are best? I really don't know what brand is best but, this brand is not. It's the LD Premium Magnetic Glossy Photo Paper from Amazon. It's the one which is priced at 20 sheets for $28.99.

Well, all is well that ends well. I finally let the sheets dry for a long time, doubled up on the sheets for the doll heads and then the fun began as I blinged up some jewelry and head bands. I didn't purchase the "Bling" sets over at Lettering Delights so I winged it with the Studio software and created a few pieces. I think every little girl, and even some big girls like me :) will have hours of fun playing with these.

On the Create A Face file folder, I added an extra pocket to the back because the blonde, pony tailed girl wouldn't fit on the inside. This set has so many adorable faces. I can't wait to make some more.

Santa's Village Cutting Files

A great big thanks goes out to Noella Designs for sharing these free printables of an adorable little Santa Village. These free printables come with the templates and instructions to create a 3D miniature Village with lots of little extras for embellishing the building.

When Tine (Addie24) from our Silhouette Plus forum and her blog; Crafting Christine posted this share I couldn't wait to turn them into cutting files and make them with my buddy, the Silhouette Cameo. These all went together so well. Noella Designs did a fantastic job. I'm grateful for their generous share.

The templates did have to be increased to 450 percent to get nice size houses. Once I did this, it was just a matter of making all of the cut lines in the right places. I hope you and yours will enjoy these. They are a lot of fun to make for both adults and children. I'm thinking about using one of Tine's suggestions and making them into boxes for holiday gift giving.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Trying To Send Thank You Gifts

Hello, I wasn't sure how to get his message out so I'm blogging about I tried to send all of those whom made a kind and generous donation to help in my efforts to stay at home and create cutting file shares some extra cutting files as a small gift of appreciation.

When I tried to email a couple of the ladies these files I received one email address error. The first names of these ladies are Diane and Maria. If you see this blog, please email me from the email link here on my blog. It's on the upper right hand side.

I finished the other two boxes as part of the complete set of 6 Christmas boxes. I wanted everyone to be able to create a sort of wall box art Christmas tree. At the very last minute of this evenings test cutting I decided to design the 3D star to place on the top.

Please, if anyone who has donated didn't receive the 3 sets of Thank You cutting files; please email me. I truly appreciate the kindness you all have shown.

A Special Thank You Gift

I want to take the opportunity to thank those whom have so generously donated to my blog. I love to share and make things for others. It's good for the soul.

Those of you whom donated to my blog have made me feel very appreciated so I wanted to make some special cutting files to share with you to show you how much your kindness has meant to me.

As I enjoy the feeling of giving I also feel blessed to receive. Many thanks to all of you for the kindness you have shown.

The set of Christmas wall hanging boxes, the clipboard, note paper, and pocket card with easel will be emailed to you in a zipped file. If you don't receive it, please let me know by emailing me. I some times mess up when I'm sending out emails.


Here is a peek of what you will be receiving in an email. I am using the pocket card with easel to set out for our Thanksgiving dinner. I used the Cornucopia image I shared here to place the names on. The leaves were glittered up with some Stickles. Each member of the family will write on the note paper, what they are most thankful for. At the end of the dinner, I'll ask them all to take them home so they can always take a look at what they are thankful for when they have one of those days which may bring them down.

2013 Matchbook Template and Calendar

Good Sunday everyone, I shared the calendar cut out on the Silhouette Plus forum. Afterwards, I made a matchbook template so the 2.75 x 2.75 2013 Calendar cut outs could be placed in a matchbook to make some nice stocking stuffers.

You can fill the template with your favorite background pattern and make them your own. To hold the calendar pages inside you can either use a staple that will punch into all of the layers or use some Aleen's Tacky Glue on the bottom edges and place them in the matchbook up folded portion. When you use a staple it is necessary to use the little strips that are in the cutting file to cover the staple. You can also you the little strip for a bit of added embellishment.

If you would like to download these cutting files; both are in the .zip folder. The files are in Studio, .svg, and .dxf file formats. Click here to download -----> 2013 Calendar and Matchbook Template

Fun Christmas Tree Freebie

This little Christmas tree is fun and fast to make. The sample below I made doing a Print and cut, thus the white perforation you see. When I make some for decorations, I'll use a pretty green card stock. It's easy to fold into a 3D Christmas tree to place some Christmas spirit all over the place. The star slides into a slit at the top of the tree. I painted the star with Mod Podge and glittered it all up with some Martha Stewart gold glitter.

Cell Phone Used with Bad Manners.....I'm fed up!

Okay, I know we live in a technological world. I love computers and spend more time on them than I should but, I know when to get off. When I have company, I stay off my computer and turn the television off. I never ever answer the phone during dinner nor do  I sit with a cell phone checking out Facebook, sending text messages, or reading them.

Lately, and often, my husband and I have witnessed groups of people sitting in a restaurant together and each and every person has a cell phone in hand and their attention seems to be on what they see on that little screen. It's sad to see so many people not enjoying each other and communicating the way a group of people going to dinner should be communicating.

We see people whom think they are paying attention to their driving. If you ask most people whom frequently use mobile phone when driving, they will swear up and down they can totally focus on their driving and don't pose a danger to others. In my observations, this is not true! Often, I wonder if they even notice the accidents they almost caused. I really hate to see a car with children in it, and see a mom or dad, chatting away, or looking downward to read a text.

Seriously, is it this important to have a mobile phone that needs such constant attention. I understand where mobile phones are important and can be very useful. If a person is on call, have their children with a child care provider, or need to have it on because of an important phone call. Do they really need to whip them out at social gatherings like dinner with family or friends?

This is one fed up MOM! I am witnessing our own family members and friends with bad cell phone manners. Oh yes, they are. Whether I go out to dinner with our family and friends or invite them to our home for dinner, I expect to see them, as adults, to mind their manners and NOT come to a table with cell phone in hand, constantly looking downward to read or doing the one hand text a message thing, Yes, they are proficient enough to look downward and text with one hand. Why should they be proficient, they eat, sleep, and drink with it. They now know their phones better than their friends and family.

I've taken a stand for cell phone etiquette, dinner table manners, and in the hopes of making the dinner table a place for socializing between humans whom should be conversing; I've made a sign. This sign is proudly displayed on our buffet table. It's not a small sign. Do you think perhaps the people whom I love and enjoy THEIR company will get the message and realize, phones should never get in the way of real human socializing and conversations.

It seems as this World's technology will make people further apart than bring them together. When people decide that looking at their Facebook, browsing the internet, playing games, reading or sending texts is more important than enjoying the communion of a family/friend dinner; something is wrong.

Oh, I also saw a picture my dear friend had posted at her last year's family Christmas gathering. Every single person in the picture was looking at their mobile phones. All I can say is; "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.". Time for me to stop venting and post the picture of my new framed sign. The "Bear Heart" graphics are by Lorie Furnell.

I close this post with a little scenario my husband and I witnessed at a McDonald's playground we had taken our grandchildren to play.

A little boy runs up to his mom in total excitement calling out; "Mom, mom! should see what I can do. Mommy do you want to see?" the mother with her head downwards looking at her cell phone just kept on looking at it with her complete and total attention. the little boy call out again; "Mommy, mom, do you want to see?...huh? " The woman lifts her head for a second and say; " Just a minute sweet heart." then the little boy says; "Oh mommy, you have to see, I can do this!"...again, the mom looks down at her phone, then briefly looks up, and in a not so nice tone says; " I said, just a minute. " the boy looks away towards the playground, then back to his mom and stands by her side patiently awaiting. Several minutes later, he asks; " Mom, are you done yet?" she replies, " Did I tell you just a minute!" he looks downward and defeated. He walks away and begins to play on the playground. Over a half hour has passed, and this mom never gave her child the moment he had pleaded to have. They left. As the mom walked out with her son, she held her mobile phone tightly in her hand and looked at it more often than her won child. This gave me such a feeling of anger but even more sadness.

First Mini Blog Hop! with Krafting Kelly and Barb Dersken

Good day everyone! I'm so excited to announce the first blog hop done in collaboration with Kelly many of you know as the very talented Krafting Kelly from Finding Time to Create and the talented, generous Barb Dersken also know as (Lalalime) from her blog The Life of Mrs. Miles.

We've been planning this "Mini Blog Hop" for some time now and finally, have had the opportunity to come together to share with our visitors, followers, and friends some nice Fall cutting files.

This was also a little challenge for us. First, we shared the cutting files we designed with each other and made something fun and crafty to share. All sorts of fun Fall things were made. I have really enjoyed being a part of the mini blog with Barb and Kelly. They are wonderful women who give such inspiration and both are filled with talent. Wait until you see the fun things they made with the shared cutting files. This was so much fun!

The creative, Krafty Kelly created these with the shared cutting files:

Here are the lovely things Barb made with her crafty and wonderful self. 

With the Fall themed cutting files shared by Kelly, and Barb; here's what I created:

Napkin Holder
since having grandchildren we started using dishcloths as napkins. This way it's a quick clean up after meal time. Each of the leaves are painted with Pearlescent metallics water colors. They really shimmer.

Pumpkin Candle Wrap

These two pictures are a part of the Accordian frame I made with the files I'm sharing today.

I welded 4 pumpkins together, ungrouped the leaves and acorns from my Cornucopia cutting file to make a pretty Fall base for the pumpkin. I added some orange Stickles glitter to all of the leaves, grabbed my Copics to make some shadows and lines in the pumpkin to finish it up. 

Here we go.... these are the cutting files I'm sharing here:

First are these two Print and Cut files. Oh, you can also do a paper piecing with them. You can download both cutting files in .SVG and Studio here -------> Cornucopia and Pilgrim Turkey .SVG and Studio

I've already posted this Accordion frame on one of my other posts but today as part of our mini blog hop I will be sharing the Accordion frame cutting file. I've had so many compliments on this as it sits in my living room as part of  my Fall decorations. This can be used for so many themes.

You can download this one here -----> Accordion Frame Cutting Files .SVG and Studio

If you started the blog hop here; you will want to hop on over to Barb's Blog: The Life of Mrs. Miles or Kelly's Blog: Finding Time to Create to grab ups some more Fall fun goodies.

Many thanks to Kelly and Barb for all of the fun and delightful cutting files shares. This was a blast. xxx- Debbie

Floating Floor

Good Sunday everyone! First, I wanted to say how thrilled I am to learn so many people are enjoying my cutting file shares. I quit keeping track after I saw the 800 I love sharing and knowing they are being used by crafters all over the world.

Now for the reason I'm blogging today; the Pop Up Floating Floor it finished being tweaked but, I am going to wait to post it. Some are thinking it sounds too complicated so, I want to take the time to make a little video tutorial explaining how it goes together and works.

I'm not sure when I'll have the time to make the video because I have company coming for an extended stay. I promise, as soon as I have some quiet time, I'll get it made. For now, I would like to share a "Welcome Baby" card I made with the Floating Floor template.

Have a blessing filled day. xxx - Debbie
