Rose in Bloom Tutorial

I love that I can make my own pretty paper flowers with nothing but paper and glue!  No need to run to the craft store when I can whip these babies up in no time at all.  Using the Silhouette Cameo and my Rose in Bloom cut file to cut the paper make the process that much faster!  (But, don’t worry!  You can still use your scissors or craft knife with the pdf, png or psd file, and your flower will turn out just as awesome!)

Tutorial:  Improve the photos of your papercraft projects today!!

I’m a papercraft template designer, so I’m constantly putting together little paper masterpieces and sharing my work online.  I have to tell you, though, getting the photos of my projects to properly represent the delicious hybrid work of art in my hand is very difficult, to say the least.  My project is always so much more vibrant than the photos I take.  It’s sort of disappointing!
Lucky for you, I’ve been at this for over 5 years, and I think I’ve finally got it figured out.
When taking photos of your papercraft, you have …

Mom’s Hostage Box

The other day I was walking around Walmart when I saw a big, pink storage bin.  I just HAD to have it, much to my boys’ chagrin.  I had BIG plans.
I got the idea for Mom’s Hostage Box from this blog post that had been pinned on Pinterest about a year ago.  I downloaded her list of chores and it has been sitting on my desktop forever.  Apparently, I read “Hostage Box” when she wrote Ransom Box.  Whatever.  My title works, too!
SO, I bought the big, pink bin and went …
