Super Sale! 75% off Graphics and Cut Bundles! Plus lots of freebies!

Hi everyone!

So sorry that I've been quiet. Blogging has taken a backseat while I try to keep up with life. I'm struggling to finish the one-hundred-and-one things that I have to do before Christmas but I am hitting the pause button to let you know about LD's best sale of the year.

LD recently had a super sale on all their graphics and cut bundles- they were all 75% off! Sadly, not many of us knew about it because they had changed their email provider and their emails were not received by many, including me. To make up for it, LD has brought back the sale and also made the weekly freebies from the past few weeks available again for a limited time!

The LD 75% off bundle sale is one of my favorite promotions. Here's an example of what's on sale. CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL OF THEM.

Besides the super sale, LD has also brought back all the freebies that they gave out in Nov and so far in Dec. If you had missed out on them before, here's your second chance. Click below to get each set totally free of charge:

The most Kawaii ice-creams (& FREE Kawaii Treats Party Printables)

This post may contain affiliate links. If you click and make a purchase through those links, I may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. Click here to see my full disclosure policy.

Back in the Spring, our family took a short little trip to Tokyo hoping to catch a glimpse of the cherry blossoms before they are gone for the season. If you follow my Instagram, you may probably recall our vacation.

While we had visited Japan previously, we had never been there during Spring. The weather was a lot like Spring in Seattle but there is so much to see and do and eat there! One of our favorite stops was Eiswelt Gelato in Harajuku. The ice-cream cones are so cute we could hardly bear to eat them.

So can you imagine my delight when saw that LD's latest collection was all about Kawaii Treats? I was giddy with excitement! I couldn't wait to cut them out and surprise my kids!

The Kawaii Treats Cut bundle includes 3 sets of cutting files (SVG): Kawaii-sicles - CS is a collection of 15 cute popsicles while Kawaii-screams - CS are ice-cream cones. The Kawaii-sicles - CP comes with 15 cutting files for the most kawaii gift boxes.

image from LD website.

Since the files from the Kawaii-screams (CS) resemble the ice-cream cones that we had (than the popsicles from the Kawaii-sicles - CS) I decided to pick three SVGs from the set to cut out.

Using Silhouette Studio (DE), I cut out the bear, cow, and unicorn ice-cream cones with my Silhouette Cameo, and assembled the layers together with glue and foam tape.

They turned out to be so cute!! My kids loved them and didn't want to give them back to me after I showed them. Looks like I'm going to have to cut a couple more for myself!

Speaking of treats, LD is treating everyone to a wonderful freebie this week. Whether you are planning for an ice-cream party or not, head over to their site to grab your free Kawaii Treats Party Printables. It comes with all the kawaii graphics you need to host the cutest party for your guests!

Cardstock Chewbacca (Happy Star Wars Day!)

I wasn't really planning on posting today but I've always loved LD's Star Wars-inspired SVGs and couldn't resist using a file that I haven't cut out with my Silhouette Cameo before.

I only had an hour to play before going out to lunch so I picked the design that didn't come with a lot of layers. Unlike some of the other characters that I had previously posted, Chewbacca only had 8 layers. After I eliminated the blush, I was left with 7 layers to cut out using 4 different colors of cardstock.

I usually like to take my time to cut and assemble the layers together but I was in a hurry this morning. I rushed through the process and was relieved when I managed to pick the papers, make the cutouts, glue/tape the layers together, and photograph the finished piece in just over an hour. Yay!! Guess the 4th was with me today. lol.
Hope you have a Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you too!

Timber! I've fallen for you...

So I have an easy card idea to share but strictly speaking, it's not really my card design. You see, as I was browsing through LD's Channel the Flannel collection, I came across a preview that gave me an idea...

See that cut file that I pointed out above? That alone can be its own card design!

Using Silhouette Studio (DS), I printed the sentiment and manually cut it out with a stitched square metal die. I cut the tree using my Silhouette Cameo and different colored cardstock and pieced them together with tape.

I like the clean and simple look of these cards but I really love how quickly they came together. I'm going to be busy with home and family stuff in the next couple of weeks and I could certainly use a fast project to get that crafting itch out of my system.

And speaking of busy, I gotta go....

Talk to you later!

Wood you be mine?

Have you seen the new collection that LD released yesterday? "We Go Together" is so cute I think I might have squealed a little when I saw it!

I adore the new designs and I cannot wait to play with them but today's post is not about them. I made these cards last week and didn't get around to putting them up on the blog and so here we go.

Of all the graphics that are in the "Channel the Flannel" collection, I think the one that stood out the most for me is the beaver. I mean, just look at that face. Isn't he a cutie?

Using Silhouette Studio DS, this is what I came up with:

I printed the card front and manually cut out with a rectangle metal die. The beaver was cut on different colored cardstock and pieced together with glue and foam tape.

Although I like the simple look of the card, I wondered if I could make the sentiment larger. After all, that is the point of the card, isn't it? To ask if he/she would be your Valentine?

So this is what I came up with:

Once again I printed out the card front and manually cut it out with a metal die while the beaver was cut and pieced together.

I have another card that I made from the Channel the Flannel collection to share with you but that'll have to wait until my next post.

Talk to you later!

You Melt My Heart

Our local Fred Meyer seems to be taking an especially long time to clear out their Christmas stock this year. While Target has already salvaged theirs for over a week, I still see Christmas up on the shelves at the grocery store last Friday.  When I went there again after the weekend, Christmas things were almost gone and have been replaced by Valentines. I was pleasantly surprised. I love Valentines!

As it turned out, I wasn't the only person who was not expecting to see Valentines in Fred Meyers that day. The cashier who was helping me with my transaction was dismayed when she rang up my chocolates.

"I can't believe that they are already putting out Valentines!", she exclaimed. And she looked embarrassed as she leaned in and whispered,

"My tree is still up!".

Well, ready or not, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. It's less than a month away! It's okay if your tree is also still up (Shh!...I won't tell!), it's time to get your Valentines started.

I used to have so much fun putting together tons of goodie bags for my girls' classmates for Valentine's Day. Now that the kids are older, they prefer making their own Valentines for their friends. This only means that I now have more time to make more Valentine's Day cards. Yippee!

For today's shaped card, I'm using the new Yeti in Love cut set that LD had just released last week. Applying my usual method of welding various rectangles to the different offsets, I ended up with this:

I was going to use print-and-cut on the whole entire card base but it ended up being too heavy on the card front. So I decided to cut the white card base using a heavier cardstock (110lb Recollections paper from Michaels) and only print-and-cut out the colored card front. Since a letter-size page can fit two of the card fronts, I printed out and cut out two copies so I can make two cards. (The illustration below does not indicate it but I did also cut out two sets of the Yeti and the card base so as to make two cards.)

Here are the finished cards:
