Echo Park: 3d Paper Kitchen Mixer

Welcome a new neighbor, or let an existing one know how much you appreciate them, with this adorable Kitchen Mixer Gift set.
I immediately fell in love with the friendly, bright colors of the Echo Park Happiness is Homemade collection and couldn’t wait to create something fun with these papers!
I chose to create a 3D Kitchen Mixer Gift Set using my Silhouette Cameo Machine and a cut file I purchased online from Cre8tive Cutz. I used the Solid Red/Yellow Paper and the yellow gingham Spoonful of Sugar papers for the base of my mixer. The sunny yellow is sure to brighten anyone’s day!
The Pastry Stripes paper and cute icons on the Kitchen Essentials papers were the perfect choices to use to cut the accent pieces.
The bowl was created with the blue polka dot Tea Time paper. I added some white scallop felt trim from my stash along the top edge and then filled it with chocolate candy kisses.
The base of this mixer lifts up, so you could even add more chocolate kisses to the inside, if you’d like!
I added a fun cluster of elements to the top corner of the mixer as a focal point. I just love the way the doily stickers look with the kitchen utensils peeking out here-and-there. I then added die cut flowers created with the Flower #3 and Flower #4 Die Sets to both the cluster and to the mixing bowl. Buttons tied with twine in the center of each flower add a homespun feel!
Finally, write out a few favorite recipes on the cut apart recipe cards from the 4×6 Journaling Cards Paper to add to your gift … maybe include a recipe for Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies to help use up all those chocolate kisses?

Carta Bella Paper: A Gift Box that is Sew Cute!

I love creating unique gift boxes to wow my friends and family. I have several people in my life who sew and couldn’t wait to use the Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl collection to create this adorable sewing machine gift box.
I cut the body of the sewing machine using the City Flowers Paper. I love the flowers on this paper! It looks like fancy embroidery … perfect fit for the sewing theme. The bottom and end pieces are cut using the Let’s Shop Paper.
All of the girly accents in this collection are so perfect for the women in our lives! I accented the base of the machine with a strip of the Show Lover striped paper to add more color and then created a fun cluster of elements as a decorative focal point. I love the “Happy Girl” quote by Audrey Hepburn, trimmed from the Affirmations Paper.
I can’t wait to add some goodies and a gift card into the box in the base to give to someone special.

Maya Road Guest Blogger: 2016 Family Christmas Ornament


Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another Maya Road project to share with you today!


Maya Road sent me the cutest little 6×6 DIY Mini Wood Pallet. When I saw it, I just knew I had to create something with it! I pondered on it and decided that it would make the cutest ornament for our Christmas tree featuring our family photo.

First, I added gold and white 6×6 patterned papers from the Echo Park Deck the Halls collection.


I had the gold ribbon and snowflake sitting on my desk from a gift that my sweet friend had just dropped by to me and was inspired to re-purpose them on this project. I knotted each end of the ribbon and then hot glued it to the sides of the mini pallet to use as the hanger.

Next, I added our family photo matted with white cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added the glitter snowflake accented with a stamped/embossed circle in the center.

I created the circle with the Homemade Holidays Clear Stamp Set by Maya Road, stamping and embossing the circle and “Joy” in gold and white embossing powder.

I accented the bottom corner of the photo with a Maya Road Metal Arrow and Bird Cage emellishment.


I added the year to the top of the ornament using the Maya Road Number Clips attached to Maya Road Linen Mini Pennant Banner Pieces. So cute, right?! To the right side of the year banner I added one of the Metal Royal Key Charms to dress it up even more. So pretty!


I love the way the ornament looks hanging on our tree! The gold/white color scheme matches perfectly!


Thank you again to Maya Road for asking me to guest blog for them this week! I had a great time! Be sure to check out their unique and amazing products, there’s something for everyone not matter what your style is!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

WINNER and It’s a Silhouette Christmas Party!



Thank you so much for all of the comments and great feedback you have left for me on the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery Giveaway post! I always LOVE hearing from my readers!

It’s time to announce the WINNER of the following Carta Bella Christmas Delivery goodies!


The WINNER is ….

….drumroll ….


CONGRATULATIONS, Lisa Kingston!!! I will be contacting you on the email you left with your comment requesting your shipping address. I will get these goodies out to you ASAP and hopefully, you will have time to do some creating with them before the holidays are over! Enjoy!


If you are planning a Christmas party this year, have I got some fun ideas for you today!


First off, set the stage by decorating your mantle, front door, or stair rail with a fun banner. Here are a few shots of the details.



Next, set each place setting in a special way. I found these green plates and mugs at the Dollar Tree. With a place mat, doilie, decorated mug and napkin ring … anything can be special … even paper plates!



Decorate each plate with a little paper house. Put a treat or a battery-operated tea light inside … or both!


Place a row of mason jar snowglobes down the center of the table for a wintry feel!


Or how about this cute, stacked snowman?


The kids at the kids table deserve a fancy treat, too!


These character canister boxes would look cute sitting on a shelf, or adorning the table.


Need a thank you note, or a holiday card to attach to that special gift?


There’s so many fun things you can create with your Silhouette machine. Find these designs and MORE in the Silhouette Design Store.

Happy Creating!
