Silhouette Comparison Guide

If you’ve never heard of these machines, you’re probably going to want one the more you read about them. Sorry for adding another thing to your wishlist/you’re welcome for introducing this magical machine. If you use printables, you know it takes a long time to cut out printables with a pair of scissors. A paper trimmer definitely speeds up the process, but… it still takes a while. These cutting machines do exactly that–they cut materials for you. And not just paper! They can cut cardstock, vinyl, fabric… the list goes on.

I was ready to buy one like now. Then I discovered that there are many different companies that sell craft cutting machines, and each of them have their own features and accompanying software (like Cricut or Brother). I also discovered the average price range. Then I found out you can’t just buy the machine. You have to get the cutting mat, dust cover, new blades when the blade gets dull, etc. These costs can add up!

At this point I realized something like this would be an investment and knew that I would have to carefully select the machine that would be best for me. I did a lot of research and was ultimately drawn to a couple machines by Silhouette.

November 6-12 Weekly Spread

I just LOVE how this week turned out!! 😍 The colors and the artwork are just so fall-y and PERFECT! πŸ‚πŸ It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Southern California! It isn’t 100 degrees every day anymore!! πŸ™Œ I was able to bust out my riding boots and best of all… my sweaters!!! 😍

If there’s one thing I love as much as… maybe even more than sweaters… it’s ponchos! My boyfriend always asks me why I’m wearing a blanket out of the house whenever I wear a poncho. πŸ˜‚ I mean… I guess they are kinda blanket-like. But that’s what makes them so awesome! That and scarves. Especially blanket scarves. 😍

Aaaaanyways. Back to my weekly spread. πŸ˜…

Free Planner Printable: Thanksgiving

Where is the time going?! Can we get a pause button up in here?! I feel like I just shared a freebie with y’all! And can you believe Thanksgiving less than a week away?! How is November almost already over?! It just started!!! πŸ™ˆ

Anyways, I’ve got this adorable Thanksgiving kit for your planner! It’s just so fall-ish and cute! I tried not to include a lot of food-related stuff in this one because it would just make me hungry to look at my planner. πŸ˜‚ Or, I wouldn’t even want to look at my planner after stuffing myself on Thanksgiving. Okay, maaaayyybe I included a teeny tiny, cute lil’ piece of pie in there. It says “give thanks eat pie”. I mean, how cute is that?!

In the spirit of gratitude and giving, maybe you could consider buying me a cup of coffee to say thanks for the printables, or purchasing a deluxe printable from my Etsy shop? I’d really appreciate it!! πŸ’•

Anyways, this one is simply called “Thanksgiving”. I hope you guys like it! πŸ’– Continue reading “Free Planner Printable: Thanksgiving”

October 30- November 5 Weekly Spread

I can’t believe October is already over! It feels like my birthday month just started! πŸŽ‚πŸ’–

Anyways, Halloween is this week but that holiday is just okay so I’ll probably write in “Halloween” and I may or may not mark it with a sticker. I instead decided to focus on DΓ­a de los Muertos! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a beautiful holiday that takes place over the course of a few days where we celebrate and honor the deceased.

Free Planner Printable: Apple Picking

Happy Friday, my lovely potatoes! This week, I have a beautiful printable to share with you all! It’s a little different than my usual style, but I really like it! This one is a little more antique-vintage-y looking. I paired it with rich, fall tones and I think it goes really well together!

I call this one “Apple Picking”! I might be a little late for apple-picking season, but I think it still makes for a gorgeous fall printable! Continue reading “Free Planner Printable: Apple Picking”

Free Planner Printable: Houston Astros

So… remember the LA Dodgers freebie I made two days ago when I learned the World Series was going on? Funny story about that…

Last night my boyfriend came home and said he traded shifts with someone because they REALLY wanted to see the World Series game tonight. I asked him who was playing, and he told me the Dodgers vs. the Astros. I told him he must be mistaken because they played Sunday night. He just looked at me blankly and said “You really don’t understand sports, do you?” πŸ˜‚

So, yesterday I learned that the Word Series is 7 games and the same 2 teams play each other 7 nights in a row to decide a winner! Plus, it really makes sense now why so many people saw my Dodgers printable and asked for an Astros one. I was starting to think the Astros were just really popular. Nope, they’re in the World Series. πŸ˜‚

I couldn’t find any pics of Hello Kitty dressed in Astros gear, so this one unfortunately doesn’t have any Hello Kitty. But hey, at least you have an Astros printable at all, right? 😊

Free Planner Printable: LA Dodgers

I am not a sports person. At all. I could probably count the number of professional athletes I could name on both hands. So anyways, I’m sitting here at home, and I hear my neighbors burst out cheering. And not just some of them. Like… a lot of them. Sounded like sports cheering. Is this like the play offs? The championship game? What sport is it???

So I go on Google to see if there was a sports thing going on, and found out the World Series baseball game is going on tonight! It’s the Los Angeles Dodgers vs the Houston Astros. Hey, I live near LA now! Woo-hoo! Go team!

A while back, I made a White Sox printable for someone who won a giveaway. A lot of planner girls loved it and asked me if I could make one for their favorite team. Well planner girls, I’m finally getting around to making an LA Dodgers one for you guys. πŸ’• Even better, when I was searching for pics to use, I found a lot of Hello Kitty stuff!!! So of course I had to include some Hello Kitty!!!! πŸ’–

Maybe I’m a little late because the World Series is tonight, but if they win I’m sure you’ll be celebrating for at least a week or so. 😊 Continue reading “Free Planner Printable: LA Dodgers”

New Printable: DΓ­a de los Muertos

Hey tater tots! I’m super excited to share with you a brand new printable!!!! This one is a first for me in a couple of ways. For one, it’s my first printable I made available with a Silhouette Studio cut file!! Secondly, it’s in Spanish!! How awesome is that?!

This printable is 4 pages long!!! It features bold & bright colors with sugar skulls and marigolds. I’ve saved each page as its own pdf, and there’s a Silhouette Studio cut file to accompany each pdf. Don’t own a Silhouette? Not a problem! I included a version to print and cut out by hand, too.

I call it DΓ­a de los Muertos“. Just scroll down and look at how beautifully this kit turned out. 😍 Continue reading “New Printable: DΓ­a de los Muertos”
