Silhouette Cuts

Projects using the Silhouette Cameo

I like a challenge. When I saw Birthday Card in a Box from Kara at I fancied giving it a try. There’s just one problem: I don’t have good paper cutting skills, paper scoring skills, paper punching skills, paper fiddling to stick together skills or lots of handy die […]

Card In A Box | No. 1

Cheers, Happy Easter, bottoms up everyone! No, I’m not on the bubbly stuff, I’m happy with my work today. I’m teaching my friend (hello Katherine!) to make cards. She already knows how to cross stitch; I taught her that last year. Now she prowls Pinterest looking for cards she’d like […]
