Silhouette shape challenge

Hi, all. Just a quick post today.
This morning an email stated the new Silhouette Challenge for this week, shape.
Make any shape from the sil store.
Well, last night I made this cute candle box by designer Jamie Cripps. Her designs are so easy to put together and she has great  tutorials for them.

I'll probable make several of thee for my grandsons birthday.

Isn't it cute? Would be great for favors.
Thanks for stopping by.

Back to School

Happy Sunday, everyone.

Just thought I would post a little project I made for my grandsons starting school tomorrow.

The Silhouette store had a cute 3d backpack (very easy to assemble). I made 3 of them. I sized the pieces for my Portrait mat and it made a good size treat holder.

I forgot to take a pic of all 3. The other 2 were orange and blue.
Take a look:

Isn't it cute?

Thanks for dropping by. Hope to see you again soon.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

BIL Birthday card

Good morning.
 Seems like so long since I posted. Life has a way of getting in the way.

I have 2 BIL's with birthdays this month. In fact, they are on the same day, Aug. 10th.
I just haven't felt like posting  so that's why this is late.
I'll show you one of them today.

This wonderful BIL is so nice to everyone. He's a big kid at heart. He and my SIL sometimes come get Gabe and spend time with him for a couple of days. (they don't have grandkids yet)

Anyway he does lots of woodworking so I chose this cute toolbox card from the Silhouette store.
The tools are the Cricut Handyman cart.

He really liked it.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Something new (to me)

Hi, all. Hope had a great week and weekend.
I tried something new. (new to me at least) I know lots of you use digis and love them. The verdict is still out for me.
This is my first attempt using one in a card. First using markers.
This digi is called "summer girl" and is from Nikki at
I paired it with Miss Kate's bear in pool from the Sil store.

Let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
