Vinyl Faces for Craft Projects

Scrap wood scarecrow snowman with vinyl faces

When I was creating my scrap wood scarecrow snowman, I knew it would be easy to assemble and paint.  I was a little intimidated about painting the faces on them.  I decided to add the vinyl faces for craft projects to the scrapwood scarecrow snowman with vinyl.  You can find the cutting files for the vinyl faces for craft projects in Camilla’s Paper Creations store or you can order the vinyl faces for craft projects from  All I Make  or allimake.etsy.com.  Use them for scrap wood scarecrow and snowman and much more.

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake

If you have not made a diaper cake I highly recommend it.  I had always wanted to make a diaper cake but did not have anyone to make one for, until last year.  My daughters friend was having a baby shower so I told my daughter she should make a diaper cake for her friend, however I should help her…grin.  We gathered up all of the decorations we thought we needed for the cake, planned a time to get together to work on it and had grand visions for the diaper cake.  When we got together, we were eager to get started but realized, we didn’t know where to start.  Nothing You Tube couldn’t fix.  Oops, after watching several videos we realized we didn’t have near as many supplies as we should for the diaper cake we had planned out in our heads.  The great thing about crafting, is you get to adapt and improvise…that is just what we did.  This experience was the foundation needed to make future diaper cakes, hey you have to start somewhere.

DIY Baby Shower

DIY Baby Shower

I threw a baby shower for my daughter and boy did we have fun.  DIY baby showers a very popular right now and why wouldn’t they be, you can create just what you want, in just the style you want.  Have a little fun with your die cutting system, venture outside your comfort zone and create away.  The biggest bit of advice I can give you is to start early.  There are many elements you can start on to get a head start on your DIY baby shower or party.

Turtle Ornaments

Turtle Masks

It is getting close to Christmas and I am finishing up last minute Christmas gifts.  My daughter has a friend who loves turtles.  She purchased green Christmas ornaments in hopes we could make them look like turtles.  I created the masks, eyes and a couple different mouth options.  Since these are for an adult kid, we opted for the grrr mouth.  I have added the Turtle Masks and Faces to Camilla’s Paper Creations online store, incase you also have a last minute gift to get ready for.  Or they can be added to a wide range of projects for birthday parties, gifts and more.

Glass Blocks with Vinyl

Glass Block with Nativity Scene

Christmas time is a wonderful opportunity to create decorations for your home, friends and loved ones.  If you have an electronic die cutter, you are not limited to just making papercrafts.  I have incorporated my die cutter into many aspects of a wide range of projects I create.  Even if you do not have a die cutter, you can find a very wide range of affordable decals for glass blocks on Etsy, including my Etsy shop, All I Make.  I created this glass block with vinyl using glass blocks we found on Craigs List and the a vinyl decal found in my Etsy shop.  We were able to get glass block cheap, so we found a drill bit at Lowe’s to drill into the back of the blocks to insert the mesh and lights in the block.  You can also find the blocks ready to decorate at your favorite craft store, especially around Christmas time.

Handmade Christmas Card with Lamp Post

Handmade Christmas Card with Lamp Post and Candy Cane Frame

For this years handmade Christmas card, I wanted to do something monochrome with a bold element.  I had some shimmery paper on hand so I wanted to offset elements of the card with a dull cardstock.  The bold element I wanted to use was the lamp post.  I have included instructions for this Christmas Card with Lamp Post below.  I have also referenced the cutting files from my store that I used in this card.

Softball Ornaments

Softball Christmas Ornament

Every year I try to make something special for the girls on my daughters softball team.  As they get older, it is harder to come up with more mature goodies for them.  The girls still cannot resist these softball ornaments.  This year I bought heart shaped glass Christmas bulbs, however most years I use the jumbo Christmas bulbs.  I fill with green paint and add red vinyl softball stitching to the outside.  I have included instructions below to make your own softball ornaments for your team.  I think this could also be a great softball team bonding activity for about 12 years old and up.

Chalkboard Art Christmas Card Project

Chalkboard Art Christmas Card

This chalkboard art card is the first project I am adding to my new blog.  This chalkboard art card was my Christmas card from last year and was featured in a Project Sheet I offered in the store at Camilla’s Paper Creations.  One of the reason I am excited to offer a blog is so that I can offer projects I have created using the cutting files at Camilla’s Paper Creations.  In this project post you will find information and instructions to complete the project.  Not only are they fun to create, it is also a great way to learn your electronic cutters software.
