Zoom Meeting

Summer break is coming to an end. School starts in a week and in-person classes are not going to happen due to the pandemic. Instead, like many of the other school districts in our area, the kids will be doing remote learning. I suppose that means that the first day of school will probably look something like this?


I love having the kids at home but online classes is just not the same as in-person school. Besides, they miss seeing their friends so much! I look forward to the day when it is safe enough for everyone to attend school in person again. Until then, let’s Zoom!

Did you know that LD has a monthly promotion where you can get an entire collection for free if you spend a certain dollar amount in their store? Their "Earn-A-FREE-Collection" promotion for August features Floral Shop, one of my all-time favorite LD design.

I loved the collection when it was first released a few years ago and seeing it featured again reminded me of how much I enjoyed using the cutting files before. So much so that I just had to make another card (or two) with it.


Using Silhouette Studio (Designer Edition) with my Silhouette Cameo machine, I cut out the floral bouquet from the Floral Shop Cut Set. After putting the layers together with glue and foam tape, I attached a stamped little tag to the bouquet and adhered it to the card front. The card was super easy to make because there are only a few layers in this cutting file.


The Floral Shop collection includes a set of printable papers but I chose to use some patterned paper by Carta Bella Paper Co. instead. I thought they went so well together!


The Floral Shop promotional bundle includes 7 sets of cutting files and graphics, with a total retail value of $33. CLICK HERE to see the full details of the promotion as well as the coupon code to get it all for free.

Chasing Rainbows Mini Notecards


It has been over 5 months since we started staying at home and self-isolating. Usually at this time of the year we would find ourselves in a stationery shop somewhere in Taipei, Singapore or Japan, buying all kinds of cute stationery for back-to-school.

One of the things that we love to get are boxes of credit card-sized note cards. My girls use these for almost everything- writing reminders, note-taking, or as a note to a friend. Making mini-notecards is also one of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette Cameo. I have made some in the past but it has been a while since I've made more. Since we are not going anywhere this summer, I'm going to make a whole bunch of these cards for my kids.



The method of making these cards is very similar to how I made the printable note papers (see that tutorial HERE). You make a template, drag-and-drop some graphics, print, then cut. The only difference is that these mini notecards are a lot smaller. You can find the written and video tutorial HERE.


Here are some of the other mini-notecards that I have made previously.
