My Cameo Creations!


And what are the odds that on the same day I bought it, Hobby Lobby had its last day of 50% off all scrapbooking paper.  Heaven help me.  

I wish I had more time during the week to play with it, but wanted to share with you a few of my creations.  :)  

My first cut was an epic fail.  

The mat was just too sticky for thin paper.  
After I cut a bunch of card stock, I tried again, and was successful.   

Super cute {and cheap} birthday treats for my kiddos. 
Inspired by Rachelle and Pinterest.  

Natalie made a sweet banner for her 5th grade, so I had to copy and make one for my new 2nd grade room.  
Looks adorable!  I love the bright colors!  
Also love my mom who climbed up on the counters to hang it for me.  :)

 My new 2nd grade team has been wonderful!  It's been a really hard transition starting a class in the middle of the year, but they have made it SO much easier!  I decided I should make a simple thank you gift for them, so thanks to Pinterest again, I made these.  

Another copy cat, I LOVED the mirror Lindsey made, so I made one to put above the sink in my room.  

might have gone a little crazy with the letters on all my bulletin boards...  :)

And finally, the real reason why I bought the cameo was to help my mom make the cute crafts she found on Pinterest.  She is so funny.  After I told her I wanted to buy a cameo, she kept calling me and asking if the "toy" I wanted can make each craft she found.  They answer was always yes!  So we went in on it together.  But luckily, it resides in sunny Arizona with me.  :)  She wanted to start out with a Halloween and a Fall banner to hang around the fireplace.  We didn't get the ribbon yet, but look how cute they are going to be!!

Like I said, I wish I had more time to play with my cameo.  I have a lot more ideas, so stay tuned!  
On another note, I LOVE 2nd Grade!  It is so wonderful!  Back in the spring when I was applying/interviewing for jobs I asked Lindsey how she liked 2nd grade compared to 1st and she said "second grade is first grade on steroids!"  It really is!  I love it!  :)
