Tri Window With Andrea

Hello Besties!  Today we have Andrea with this amazing
Tri Window Card that she has made with her Silhouette Cameo.

She has even given you a tutorial on how to make this.

Card Base:
Plain Coloured Card Stock - 12" x 12"
Open your Silhouette Cameo Software.  Make your work space 12" x 12"
Using your Square Tool (left side task bar) draw a 12" x  8" rectangle.
Now using the Line Tool (left side task Bar) draw a line  2" down from the top across the page from 2" mark across to 10" mark.  Do this again at the bottom of the plain cardstock.
Place your Plain Cardstock on your sticky plastic cutting sheet and cut your Card Base.
Remove the Card Base from your cutting sheet.
Fancy Card Stock for Panels :
On the Software page slide the Card Base to the side.  We are going to make the panels to go on the Card Base.
With the Square Tool draw 2 panels 7 1/2" x 1 1/2" down your page side by side ( I just draw one and right click your mouse on the panel and click duplicate) you have your 2 panels. Making the panels these size give you a nice plain cardstock boarder around your card.
Continue - 2 panels 3 1/2" x  1 1/2"  - 4 panels  1 1/2" x 1 1/2" - 1 panel  6" x 1 1/2" 
This is all the Fancy Cardstock/paper panels you need. Place your fancy paper on your cutting sheet and cut out.
Cut your window panel - mine measured  6 1/2" x 3 1/2" - I purchased the Window cut image from the Silhouette Shop.  If you have one you can cut out with your cutting machine go for it.

                                This is all the cutting you need to do on your Silhouette Cameo

Score Board or Ruler and Score Tool:
Score Base Card:
Place the 12" side of your Plain Cardstock (Card Base) at the top of your Score Board and against left side.
Score,  starting  your first score line at the 2" top cutline  to the second cutline at bottom.
Second score line - at 4" score down to cutline at top and again at the bottom 4" up to the bottom cutline.
Third score line at 8" score from top to bottom through cutline's.
Fourth Score line at 10" score from top to bottom.

Fancy Cardstock/Paper Placement:
One of the 7 1/2" x 1 1/2" cut pieces attach from top to bottom on left hand side of card base.
One of the 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" cut pieces attach at top beside your first  panel and then the second 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece at the bottom next to the first piece.
Next going across the top from left to right attach one of the 3 1/2" by 1 1/1/2" and the second piece attach the same way across left to right at bottom.
The third and forth 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" pieces are attached next one at top and one at bottom of the card base.
And last your second piece 7 1/2" x 1 1/2" attach from top to bottom.
With your 4" x 4" centre square you can put a panel with the same fancy paper or just place your coloured image without the panel.

Fold your Card:
Please study the picture of the Card for the folding.

Playing in My Planner: Stamp Sets

Hey Besties!!!  Today I am sharing with you what I have done
with my My Besties Stamp Sets.  
These stamp sets have some pretty cute images and sentiments
that can be used in many different ways.

I have decided to deck out my planner.

I use sticker sheets to stamp my images.  Love that you just peel and stick
with the adhesive already on the back and ready to go.

Also you can stamp on regular cardstock and make paperclip toppers

I love these flowers and all the colors you can make them.
I also used my glittler gel pens to color in the dots.

Here are the stamp sets that I have used.
The possibilites are endless with all the goodies and sentiments.

You can find them HERE

Would love to see what you can come up with also.

Garden Dreams Pink Bees 3D

Hello Besties!   Today I would like to share with
you some easy cards with a 3D effect.

I am using the NEW Garden Dreams Pink Bees Downloadable
Paper Pack.  You can find it HERE

You can add flare with just popping up various elements on the papers.

Here I have just printed a second sheet of the same paper and cut 
out the flowers to add on top.

For the second card I printed out one sheet and cut the element out
and placed on a coordinating sheet in the pack.

I also took the edge with the lace trim and cut out to add
another small detail to the card.

Add a sentiment or some other embellishments and have fun.

Check out all the paper packs available at

And also Check out the SALE!
