Anything Can Happen



How about another fun nightlight jar today?
 
This one was made using the fairytale nanny from the Silhouette Design Store.  And there was an option for a commercial license (just like with the fairies I'm using). 
 
The quote on the jar is one that I found doing a google search.  After all you gotta have a good inspirational quote for an image like this.
 
And now I have a nightlight that is perfect for a little girl's room or any room in the house where some inspiration is wanted.
 
 
 
With that, I am off to enter my nightlight into the following challenges:

Witching Spells

I have a fun Halloween card that I'd like to share with you today.  This one was made using the Halloween Hoots file from Marjorie Ann Designs.  I've now used four of the seven characters in this file and each one has been easy and fun to piece together.
 
For the stamped sentiment I used the Frankly Frightful stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps.
 
I also used some Purple Twilight skittles from DoubleClick Connections.  I think I have just about every color available because I love using these gems as accents on my card every chance I get.

I Believe in Fairies Light

Today I have a nightlight jar that I'd like to share with you.  I've found that these are so quick and easy to do and I'm hoping that they'll do well at my upcoming craft show because that's what some of these are for. 
 
The Silhouette Design store has quite a few fairies that can be purchased for commercial use and the reclining fairy that I used on this light is one of them. 
 
For the verbiage on my jar I just used one of the fonts I had available but the F in fairies I found doing a google search.  I love how it looks like a set of wings.
 
This week Hobby Lobby has there glass ware on sale again so needless to say I'll be hitting them up this week to purchase more.  C'mon how can I resist such an awesomely priced deal that I can turn into something this beautiful?  And even better yet, they have a variety of styles and I'm thinking about picking up some of the others so that I can "branch out" and try a couple of different Halloween styles.  My hubby loves Halloween - it's his favorite holiday so I thought I'd surprise him with a couple that he can tie into his growing decor.  Shhhhhh, don't tell him though.  :)
 
Until next time, Happy crafting everyone.....

Baby's First Christmas



I realized the other day that with all the different Christmas ornaments I've made lately I had forgotten - somehow - about Baby's First ornaments.  Don't ask me how I forgot such and important milestone, especially since this will be my granddaughter's first Christmas, but I did.......until now.
 
For these I used a combination of Silhouette files and text from one of my groups.  From the Silhouette store I used:  Baby's First Christmas and Baby Footprints.  The remaining verbiage is my own and/or from another file that was shared in one of my groups.
 
These were very easy to put together and I love how they turned out.

Tooth Fairy Lights



Now this is a trend that I didn't wait to try.  LOL  So recently I've seen some posts on FB where nightlights from Dollar Tree were being turned into nightlights that the crafter wanted.  In other words they were removing the pre-printed picture from the light and then adding vinyl to make the light their own.  I thought this was pretty cool, and being on a vinyl kick lately I decided to jump on this bandwagon and give it a try.
 
This tooth fairy light was inspired by one I saw in one of my groups.
 
To make this light I gently soaked the plastic cover in acetone for a few seconds and then used a cotton ball to rub away the pre-printed design.  After allowing the cover to dry I applied my vinyl design. 
 
For this tooth fairy design I found the tooth in a google search and traced from there. 
 
 
 
Easy Peasy.
 
And now I have a fun nightlight to help guide the tooth fairy when needed.

I Love Trash

Today I thought we'd have some fun and I would share these cute garbage cans I added some vinyl too.  I found these at the Dollar Tree - which I apparently don't visit often enough.  They have all sorts of cool things that you can craft up and turn in to other things.   Today though, it's garbage cans.
 
I saw some of these being posted in my groups last year, but like most trends I'm late joining in.  Truth is I had other stuff going on and was so new to my Silhouette that I wasn't yet trying a lot of the trends from last year.  But now I'm comfortable enough to get out there and go for it.
 
So adding vinyl to these cans was every bit as easy as it looks.  I found a file in one of my groups that had everything I needed.  However, I wanted the verbiage cut in a different font and I remembered one that I had downloaded a while back from Dafont dot com called Rock's Death.  It took forever to cut the verbiage but as you can see it was well worth the wait.
 
Next time I see the blue and red cans I just might buy some of them and turn them into something fun too. 

Happy School Worm

Today I have a fun back to school (ish) card to share with you.
 
I created this one using the new I Love School Worms file from Marjorie Ann Designs.  There are six different little worms in this collections and they are all just as cute as can be.
 
Since this little worm comes with his own chalkboard I figured I'd see what school themed papers I had in my scrap stash.  I had two to choose from and this one won.  I really like how it turned out with the handwritten letters like we all learned to write back in kindergarten and first grade.
 
The stamped sentiment on the chalkboard is from the recently released Happy Hello stamp set from Jaded Blossom.
 
And now I'm off to enter my card into the following challenges:
