Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift

Holidays always have a way of sneaking on me. Thankfully, with a little creativity and a few handy machines, a DIY gift can save the day! The first Easter that I spent with my husband, I created love coupons for him and stuck them in Easter eggs. The coupons made such an impression that he still talks about them to this day! I thought it would be fun to adapt the idea to Father’s Day because your husband will not only love a gift that keeps on giving, but your kids will also have fun being involved in the process…

Faux-Leather Gift Card Wallet

I’m so excited to show you a very fun and quick project that you can make with Silhouette Faux Leather Paper. Faux leather paper is versatile and so simple to use. One of the first things I think of when I think of leather is my husband’s wallet.

Hand Drawing Mug Stencil

    Being a nanny, I am continually thinking of ways to preserve children’s art, because let’s be honest…we make a lot of it! Remember that Personalized Child Signature Tutorial I did a while back?

And… it’s just in time for Father’s Day!     Using a drawing one of the little boys I nanny for drew of his baby brother, I traced the drawing in studio and…

“Best Dad” Gears Card

  These gear shapes, are perfect to create a card that would be great for Dad, but also could be used for a birthday card too!   One technique that I love to include in my projects is mixing patterns. It’s not even a “technique” necessarily, but a style that I enjoy so very much. Using your Silhouette machine makes so easy to cut out a bunch of different patterns with one fell swoop!     First, I sized my gear shapes to the sizes that I wanted to fit on a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card front.     Then, I…

Fishy Father’s Day Card

It’s Kalyn here with a new card project to share! Father’s Day is coming up in just a matter of weeks, so I thought it was time to get some ideas cooking.

We had a koi fish pond growing up and these just reminded me of feeding the fish with my dad on warm summer evenings.     I first took my watercolor set and created some simply color washes on watercolor paper. Then I ran the paper strips through…
