Today, I made a couple quick Valentine’s Day crafts using the Silhouette CAMEO 3. You can download the images you see here from the Silhouette Studio. If you want to save some money in the process, buy one of our download cards here at a discounted rate. This first image from my card project is called Woodland Love Squirrel Valentines. She is cut out at 4″ tall, making her perfect for a 4″ x 6″ card. The Pebbles Loves Me collection would work perfectly for this card (and the scrapbook page that I made, as well).
Raccoon Valentine Layout
Naturally, I followed the card up with a Valentine-themed scrapbook layout. The featured photo frame is 5″ x 7″. I normally only take one picture for Valentine’s Day each year, but if you want two photos, swap out my frame for a couple 4″ x 6″ frames. This adorable raccoon, once again, came from the Silhouette Studio. It’s called Woodland Love Raccoon Valentines. I made him about 5″ tall, and the word “Love” is from Love Dog w/ Balloon, but I left the dog out. I love the font from that design.

Christmas is literally just around the corner, and I haven’t really had any time to craft. I decided to dedicate my day to making various crafts with my highest priority being a scrapbook page, but first I created a Christmas card and a mini scrapbook. If you’re looking for a good Christmas-themed paper collection, check these options out:
Snow Cute Christmas Card
Here is my card. It was made using the Silhouette CAMEO, and the image is from the Silhouette Store (it’s called Rudy with Snowman Winter). The card dimensions are 4″ x 6″, and perfect for sending to one of my friends who loves the snow. I think that this card turned out snow cute!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and I wanted to make a couple of fun Thanksgiving Crafts this year, so I started with these adorable turkeys. You can have the Pilgrim Turkey SVG design to make these feathered friends for free! Just scroll to the bottom of this post, and you can download this SVG File. And don’t miss out on the other Thanksgiving SVG’s we made. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Pilgrim Turkey Cards
I made these cute turkeys originally for a scrapbook layout I was working on, but when they came together, I thought they would make the most adorable cards. I felt compelled to switch up my crafting plan. The cards stand about 4.5″ tall and were cut out using the Cricut Explore Air 2, using mostly colored cardstock.

Did you know that CraftDirect is an international company? Chi Lozano is one of our employees in the Philippines, and she happens to be a savvy paper crafter. She used her electronic die-cutting machine to make a Harry Potter-themed birthday party for her 1-year old son. When she showed us her work, we loved it so much we asked her to take our readers on this adventure. Enjoy:
Welcome to Hogwarts
This Harry Potter inspired party-themed celebration is nothing short of magical. And there’s no better way to send your guests off to the wizarding world than by escorting them onto the platform 9 ¾ platform to the Hogwarts Express!
As the guests entered the Great Hall (aka our living room), banners from Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw houses swayed as the cold wind filled up the room.

It’s October and now I feel like I can officially start creating for Halloween, and I love to make spooky and cute crafts. This year I think I got a little carried away with the scrapbook layouts! There are just too many fun Halloween paper collections to choose from this year. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to get, so I think I got them all, including:
This first scrapbook layout was not created using any of those product lines, I actually went with the Simple Stories Happy Halloween Collection Kit. This is a perfect solution if you just want to make a couple pages (or a bunch of cards). It came with a sheet of SN@P Cards that are easy to add as an embellishment to your scrapbook pages.
This next layout I made is a design you can download for free (check out the October downloads post here). The paper collection I used is called Hocus Pocus, designed by Echo Park. I absolutely love this layout that Aaron designed. I had to make it, and it was so easy with the collection kit!

It’s been a while since I have had the chance to craft, and there have been so many new craft products released that I have been dying to try. I am starting this week with a couple scrapbook pages and some super simple cards with the help of a couple of the Doodlebug Design collections. In both projects, I went with scrapbook kits. These are my favorite solutions for creating paper projects because, in one convenient pack, you get everything you need.
