Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th - are you superstitious about Friday the 13th?  We had a busy day with lots of errands on Thursday, so I just have a couple of things to share today.

 A few people asked where to get the digital version of the Pixie-Licious collection by Cosmo Cricket that I used for Cailean's birthday card.  I purchased this quite a while ago from  You can find three different sets (paper, elements and candy-candy) at the top of the page HERE.  There are 115 different Cosmo Cricket items available on the site.  I use the sets that I have purchased with my Creative Memories Storybook Creator 4.0 program (on sale until July 25th for $48.71 which is 25% off ) and also with the Silhouette Studio software.

Both of these programs allow the use of content from any source and I really enjoy having the ability to alter images and adapt them to cut with the Silhouette machines.  I wish that I could use all of my digital content with the Cricut Imagine machine...and it would be great to use it to print and cut full pages of my own designs.

The image at the top of this post is something I made from another Cosmo Cricket line, "Early Bird" which is also available through Jessica Sprague. I started with the image at the right, added a second bird and a heart that I drew, filled the pieces with different colors and papers, removed the curlicue stitching and added cutting lines.  Several people have asked if I will do some videos to show how to do this and I will try to make some after our visit with our son and daughter-in-law.

Back to Friday the 13th - Peachy Keen Stamps  is having a special one-day sale.  All items are 13% off and if you spend at least $13 (after the discount) you will automatically receive a very cute mini ghost stamp free in your order.  You can get all of the details HERE.  The sale ends at 11:59 p.m. central time July 13th (tonight).

I hope you have a wonderful weekend - we are off on some adventures and I'll try to post a few photos of interesting things that we see...

  1. First to answer your question - NO I'm not superstitious about Friday the 13th, well because I was born on a Friday the 13th (February)! It's just another day for me ;)

    I have had my Cameo I think a good two months until you mentioned about the CM Storybook Creator and so glad I bought the full version after playing with the trial version for a only a couple of weeks! Yes, I can attest to the fact that both Sil Studio and the Storybook Creator support png and jpg formats - it is amazing how both extends one's creativity!

    Have a wonderful visit with your family and have a great weekend!

  2. Diane,
    It would be so great if you could post your "how to" videos for the cameo. That would get some of us going!
    Thanks so much!
    But, first enjoy your kids.

  3. I like the birds. Have a great weekend and take advantage of every minute with your son and daughter in law.
