Creative Team Member Allie created this fabulous 
First Aid Box and is providing a detailed Silhouette Studio tutorial too! 


Hey there, it's Allie from My Card Party and I have 
fun tutorial that will help you customize your projects!


I'm using shapes #62208 (Circle Basket with Small Bow) to create a little first aid basket for my medicine cabinet. I have a full sized first aid kit in the kitchen, but I hate dragging it out for a simple cut. I thought I'd just make a tiny basket to hold the ouchie essentials.

Let's get started. I'll walk you through all the steps using some of the Designer Edition tools. With these great features, you can really style your projects to suit your needs.

You'll need some red cardstock - a scrap will do, and white cardstock - I used a sheet of 8.5x11". 



I'm using the basket with a bow, but I will not be needing the bow. 
I also don't need the basket to be very big, so I've reduced everything to 75%.



To add a cross, start by drawing a rectangle. Align it with the middle of the basket by selecting the basket and the rectangle and using the ALIGN feature.



Copy the rectangle and rotate it by 90 degrees. ALIGN.



Group the two rectangles and WELD.



To get it aligned I added a rectangle for reference and then made sure it was centered nicely.
Delete the rectangle when you are done aligning.



OFFSET the cross and create an outline.



Change lines to dotted to create a stitched effect.



Make an extra copy of the stitched cross. 
Note: Change the lines back to regular cutting lines.
I've changed it to red so you can see it, this will be cut from red cardstock.



Using the OFFSET tool, make an INSET LAYER of the strap. 
I've colored it red just so you can see it. This will also be cut from red cardstock.



Ungroup the outer strap and the holes.



Pull away the outer strap and delete. Now you have a smaller strap with holes, to match the first one you cut out.


Assemble basket. The red cross will go inside. You only need to put a little bit of adhesive in between the stitched shape and the opening.

This little project is super affordable and easy. Now it's your turn, go on and customize one of these fun baskets for any occasion!



I filled it with two sizes of bandages, some antibiotic ointment and some lifesavers.
Something sweet makes an ouchie all better!



Here's my basket in action, at home in our medicine cabinet.

Thanks for joining me today.

Remember, these deals end July 31st!

Creating a Chalkboard Home Decor Piece

Hi Samantha Walker fans!  Christine joining you today with a simple weekend project to try!  The chalkboard trend is still going strong and today I thought I'd share with you how I created a chalkboard home decor piece using Samantha's files!  To do this you will need one piece of black cardstock - even a faded or uneven tone will work here!  You will also need a Silhouette Sketch Pen in white.

To begin you will want to use the 12 X 12 Doily Set Large Open Scallop Edge #60394 set and eliminate all but one of them on your screen

Then add the sentiment (Home is' 43898) to the middle stretching it to a size that you are happy with!

Insert your white sketch pen and let it do it's work on the design.  Once it is done remove the sketch pen and the now sort of chalkboard looking piece.  Use your white sketch pen to add some chalky-ness to the design!

I filled in spots throughout the letters and swirls.  I also just kind of scribbled to create a smudged look in several places.  That's the cool thing about chalk - it has a messy-ness to it that makes it unique!  I then attached the whole thing to a square canvas so I can hang it up on my wall.  

Best of all you don't actually have to deal with chalk!  You get the effect without the real mess!

Thanks for joining us today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
