Happy Monday!!~~ Blog post by Christina/Crazy about Scrappin,PaperCrafts, & Cards!

Happy Monday to everyone!  I cannot believe how fast the weekend went!  My oldest son is in culinary school and over the weekend he had a Gourmet Dinner event.  It was fantastic!! Soon the kids will be out of school!  My youngest is getting spring fever!  Wanting to ride his bike outside and to color with sidewalk chalk. 

I have been in a little creative slump!  I think I too have spring fever and just want to get outside! I cannot seem to concentrate on my crafting!

For today's post I am going to share something I made awhile ago.  I have such a difficult time making manly crafts!  I had a co-worker request some decorative envelopes for gifts.  One of which was for her son, the other two were for her daughters.  Now while I had no problem creating the ones for the girls I found the one for the son a little more of a challenge.  I asked her what each child (these were for grown children) interests were and went from there.

I used my cameo to find the designs that I liked then imported them the the Silhouette Studio and traced them and added my cut lines.  On the manly one and the Eiffel Tower I used the cracked glass and let it dry.  I used washi tape and ink on the star one.

Here are the gift-a-lope's that I made for her girls:

  1. Doesn't look like you are in a slump to me! These are great! I have not yet tried to import an image and trace on the Cameo!
