Design team work..

 For my first DT project I had the new corrigated self adhesive card to play with. I spent ages deciding what exactly to do with it, and found I had 2 colours, brown and white. For the white I had the idea of doing a shabby chic style box, to show what you can do with the left overs after you have cut out the corrigated card on your cameo. Rather than throw the bits and pieces away they look good on a gift box or even a shabby chic type card. I was very pleased with how the box looked when decorated up with a few flowers and some string! The flowers were distressed with inks and a flourish from the silhouette store completed the project, a box worth putting something in!!
 My 2nd project is thanks to Krafting Kelly, I used her idea from christmas and used Tattoo paper on a candle. It was so much easier to place on the candle than the vinyl I usually do and as it is a print and cut you can put on whatever you like, Im thinking hearts for valentines day, a cute girl for mothers day you get the idea. but without Kelly sharing that idea I dont think I would have even thought of it,. it shows her brilliance!!
 So my 3rd project... I was already in the shabby chic mode,having made the box for item 1, but I have also been making a steam punk shadow box and I think the two ideas sort of intermingled and gave me this card, which once again shows the versatility of the corrigated card. The heart cut perfectly, and I still have most of that sheet to play with!I think the shabby steam punk look goes well for this card and I loved the colours...

 My 4th project was a fun project. I bought this phone cover in the pound shop, because when I saw it , it just cried out to be vinylled!. The bubbles on the case is the same as the ones I covered my kitchen appliances in, although on the appliances they were much bigger.. hehe.. I just had fun with this and added the gangham style because thats the type of dance old ladies like me should do!
 I made this card to show the brilliance of the cameo when making your own decoupage. The lamb came from the internet. I took it into the silhouette software and put several onto my mat, where I traced them and used the knife on them to make the decoupage.The lamb felt very easter like and spring like hence the tones used. A few frames from the silhouette store a few leaves and flourishes flowers and an easy easel card.

 For the double easel card I made a file and cut it on the cameo. I will share it at a later date. I did several layers with mirri board and cream card. The eiffel tower was cut from the double sided adhesive sheets and foil was laid on it. A heart from the silhouette store serves as the stopper on the bottom to keep the top layers upright. A few flowers and leaves finished this card off.

Thank you for looking
Love debby x


  1. Some very nice ideas and samples. I love to see what others make from the same machine that I have.

  2. Thank you Lesley for your lovely remarks xx

  3. These are fun projects, Debby! I'm glad you liked the tattoo paper on the candle. Your candle turned out beautifully! (And thanks for mentioning me.) :)

    I also love the foil on the double-sided adhesive; I have some foil buried in my craft room somewhere and have thought about using it for that. Now that I've seen your Eiffel Tower, I'll definitely have to go find it!
