Round Santa Holiday Invite

We can all agree that the holidays are an extremely busy time of year. But it’s also amazing to spend with family, coworkers, neighbors, and friends. I seem to have at least a few parties and get-togethers to attend in December. Crazy, I know! With that being said, I try to host my own small get-togethers. Every year, I try to keep the theme simple and fun! This year’s invite was a round invite and inspired by Santa’s hat. The front says, “Santa, Define Naughty…” Everyone is sure to get a good laugh out of that! These invites are not…

Punch Advent Calendar

It’s probably too late to craft up this advent calendar goodness THIS year, but definitely pin it for NEXT Christmas!

DIY Santa Gift Tags

I’m so excited to be getting into the Christmas spirit, and today I’m sharing the how-to for these DIY Santa gift tags! When it comes to Silhouette, the possibilities are ENDLESS!

But that’s the thing; in Silhouette Studio® you can create ANYTHING! So I found a couple of Santa designs that I thought were cute, and then I opened up my FAVORITE Silhouette…

Bottle Tags

We absolutely love this time of year. Immediately after Thanksgiving is over, all of our minds transition over to Christmas. For some, that means putting up the tree, playing Christmas music, and making treats. But for most of us, that means buying gifts. If you’re like us, we love to think of what new things can be made with a Silhouette machine. As we browsed Pinterest for some ideas, we thought to make a bottle tag that would be placed over a neck of a bottle of sparkling cider. Not only is this a very inexpensive gift, but it can also…
