I wish that I knew what I know about digital crafting and I had my FAVORITE tool, my Silhouette Cameo! I would have been a major crafting momma. My kiddos would have been lacking nutrition and attention. I can imagine how it might have been.
Kids: Mom, I'm hungry
Me: Not now, I'm crafting
Kids: But Mom, you said that yesterday, I haven't eaten in two days.
Me: I'm almost done, what's one more day gonna do?
Kids: Can we got out to play
Me: Sure! Have fun!
No, not really!!! I would have Never (wink wink) done that! Actually when they were little almost every minute was devoted to them. Not sure that was good or not, I stayed stressed most of the time. I think EVERY mommy needs some "me" time! Boy the things I would have done different!
Miss Mint at Peppermint Creative has been a very busy bee! She is busting new kits out like crazy. I was alittle worried I wouldn't be able to keep up because my computer crashed. I don't know if you have experienced that, but it isn't fun at all!
For this project I used the new kit, Little Learner!
I used the Silhouette Studio Edition to design the cards and the cute box they go in. For the fronts I used most the bolder elements and used the composition paper for the backs. I also cut out a third layer from a cereal box. It was perfect thickness and gave the pieces some sturdiness. You can use chipboard if you would like, but it is more expensive.
Here is the setting I used to cut out the cereal box. My mat was almost new so it didn't require any extra taping down. Speed - 1, Blade - 7, cutting mat checked and double cut checked.
For the box I modified a box file I got from The Cutting Cafe'. I used paper from the same kit to make the top and bottom of the box. The tag was also designed in Silhouette Studio Edition.
Here is a closer look at the elements used for the "memory" part of the game.
Thanks for stopping by. Miss Mint at Peppermint Creative blog is going to give this away as a freebie cutting file.
