Free Rhinestone Camera Silhouette Template

I recently upgraded my Silhouette software to the Designer Edition and could not be more pleased. There are so many fun new features but the favorite has to be the new rhinestone tools to convert designs into rhinestone templates. Import any image into the new software and it will create a rhinestone template for you!

Make and Takes for Kids | Review and Giveaway

I had the pleasure of finally meeting Marie of  Make and Takes at CHA this year and I got to see her again at Snap.  She is so sweet and oh so crafty! I absolutely love her new book Make and Takes for Kids. The projects are amazing and the photos by A Little Sussy are beautiful. Boo loves taking the book to bed with her at night and she flips through the pretty pages until she finally falls asleep
