November Blog Hop


Welcome to our November 2015 Creative Team Blog Hop! Our creative team has been working hard making some great projects that will inspire you to get crafting this holiday season! This weekend I traveled to Peachtree, Georgia to teach at the All Things Silhouette Conference that Terri Johnson organized. She’s a lovely lady and I really enjoyed working with her and all the other teachers at the event. I even got to meet and make friends with Melissa from Silhouette School!! And, the best part was meeting so many of you, my “virtual friends” in person! I’ll be teaching at another event like this April 2-3, 2016. Make sure you go sign up before it fills up. This conference was completely booked out in a couple of days when it opened. Just so you know : )


One of the best things about blog hop week is the 30% OFF SALE going on at Lori’s SVG SHOP. ALL files (and commercial licenses) from Lori Whitlock, Kolette Hall, and Dresden Carrie are on SALE. Use code NOVEMBER (case sensitive) at checkout in the SVG SHOP. I apologize for the slowness of the shop right now. I am in the process of moving my shop to a new platform and it’s going to take some time. Please bear with me while we are partially under construction. I don’t want to totally close it down right now because I know it’s holiday season and people want to get crafting.


AND, TODAY ONLY, you can save 30% OFF all of Lori Whitlock’s digital scrapbooking files over at Snap Click Supply. Shop digital scrapbook files HERE. Be sure to use code: NOVEMBER at checkout. A lot of people use the digital scrapbooking files with their Silhouette to make print and cut embellishments. So, you really get a great value out of these files. Be sure to go check them out.

I have a new tutorial for you this week on the YouTube Channel. It’s for the new 3d Frame Cards that you can find at the Silhouette Design Store and in the SVG Shop.

These have been really fun cards to create and I think you’ll enjoy them too. Here are some of the new designs…

Hi everyone! It’s Tya up on the blog today! Hopefully you all had a wonderful October with all the Halloween festivities and fun that goes along with that! We are officially in November – one of my favorite months! Not only is it my birthday month, but I just love Thanksgiving! What a wonderful time it is to meet with friends and family and take time to reflect on all we are thankful for. I decided for my link up we will focus on giving thanks! Whether that is a festive Thanksgiving project or simply a beautiful thank you card to someone special – you decide!

For my project this month, I decided to add to my Thanksgiving decor and do a charger plate with one of Lori’s beautiful sayings on it. Here is the project-

I used some vinyl for the saying.I used this one- Give Thanks Vinyl

Lori has a few other great sayings in her shop that would be wonderful to use on a charger plate. Check some of them out over on her Shop. I added a few enamel dots from the Story of Fall enamel dot set to the flourish part of the saying for an added pop.

I added a couple of lovely 3 dimensional flowers to my plate. I used this flower and this flower. The Sunflower has a brad from the Story of Fall Collection Decorative Brad set in the middle.To finish off the plate, I added a thin twine rope with some hot glue to the plate.

That’s all there is to it ! This would make a great hostess gift if you are going to someone’s home for dinner, or just do as I did and add it to your own home decor.

We would love to see your “Giving Thanks” themed projects.  Just link up your project using any of Lori’s files for your chance to win!

Turkey Pop-dot Card with Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It’s Kathy today with a fun, Thanksgiving-themed card.   I love Lori’s new Pop Dot cards and the Turkey Pop Dot Card is so stinkin’ cute!  Take a peek…

I just love his expression!  The card goes together so quickly and I love the added dimension!  I finished it up with a little twine bow and a sentiment sticker.   You can download the for this file in Lori’s Shop here or in the Silhouette Store here.  That’s it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by to peek!


Slider Window Card – Assembly Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing a quick assembly tutuorial for the new Slider Window cards.

I used the Story of Fall Collection from Echo Park to make the turkey version of this card.  The card has a tab that you pull to reveal your sentiment.  They are so fun!

Here’s how to put them together.  When you cut out the card you will have these pieces.

The first step is assemble your turkey.  Next apply the mat (orange layer) to the card base (brown layer).

Next, apply your sentiment panel to the front of the card.  Use the window panel (wood grain) to line it up before gluing in place.

Apply adhesive to the outer edges of the window panel and glue down.  You don’t want adhesive too close to the window so your slider (floral piece) can slide freely up and down.

Finally, side the slider all the way down into the window, covering your sentiment area.  The window panel has a perforated edge on the bottom, fold that up and apply a strip of adhesive to the back side.  Press down firmly to adhere that strip only to the slider panel. When you pull up on the tab, you will have a pop up area to attach your turkey to.

Such a fun interactive card!  Anyone would love to receive this!

Be sure to check out all the fabulous new files that Lori recently added to the store.
