New Stuff! Now Available!

HI!! Was that a fun party or what? That was more cards than I made for a release party in awhile and I will tell you part of it is having so much fun with, being inspired by, and how fast the cut files make for cute cardmaking! Here are the full sets if you have not yet seen or need a reference: Basket Additions 3, now available, in clear or rubber.
Boy stuff. Girl stuff. Guy stuff. School stuff. Teacher stuff. Halloween stuff. And tons of words to go with these and all the previous basket sets so now you can make "for you MOM" with the spa basket or "for my husband" with the romantic picnic or Valentine basket. I'm so excited to have these options! :)

And previously released Holiday Basket is now available in clear also, woo hoo! It was easy before with straight edge in the die cut rubber lining up the toppers with the baskets, but it just got even easier with the clear. Just stamp the basket then stamp the topper and you got it, I mean, perfect! And so nice to have with all the fall and winter holidays coming up: Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines Day! And I apologize if I went a little cauldron/Halloween crazy with my first digital stamp Tuesday! I am just so excited I can now bring you digis for even less money and very specific themes or seasons! I also wanted to show how versatile the cauldron could be too, I had a blast coming up with new non-Halloween stuff once I started playing around with the matching cut file!Here is one my favorite cards from the party, where I used both the Holiday Basket stamp set for the roses, and then the cut file for Holiday Basket and the cut file for create a Cauldron to make this vase with handles. I used my Cropodile to punch through the handles on the sides to thread the raffia through and trimmed off the feet.

So ahem, speaking of cut files, check it!! :) Basket Additions 3
I will be doing some posts showing ways to use these, as I said, as well as all the cuts you'll receive in the file, just give me a little time to snap all the pics! For instance, here is one for Holiday Basket.

Now something to know about the Create a Cauldron file: this file is a print and cut file, meaning you get both the digital images and the cut file for it together. If you don't have a Silhouette Cameo, you only need to get the digital stamp. If you have the Cameo, and want the cauldron, be sure to only get the print and cut file you don't need to also buy the digi images, because the digi images ARE included. The reason we are offering it this way is because it is not an actual stamp, you can't stamp in the image after cutting, instead you print the digi first, then cut it with the Cameo. Make sense? But what's also nice is you can copy and paste just the cut line parts you want on to a separate file if you would like to make a few of them cut without the outline inside, the way I did on these cards.

More to come!


  1. FAB!!! I used your cut files for Holiday Basket while at Lee's. Unfortunately, I can't show you the card 'cause I left it for Lee as a thank you note. She hasn't found it in the guest room yet I guess. LOL But I LOVED using it and adding the flowers (roses) just as you did in the pic to the basket!!

  2. Fabulous cards Mel, I just love the first one, great design paper for paper piecing.

  3. This is really becoming very cool and very interesting! Silhouette has assured me my Cameo wil arrive on Monday! I wonder if I can quit working so I can play right away? (yeah probably not--bummer!)

  4. Fantastic cards, Melanie! Love how you used the cauldron! And love the new background of your blog- perfect summer day!
