Making Your Cupcake Base SVG – Silhouette Cameo

Hello All,

There are several basic shapes used for most SVG images. The purpose of these shapes to create objects found in life and turn them in to SVGs (Scalable Vector Graphics) that can be used for any number of projects.

Many crafters are card/scrapbookers, others work with vinyl for apparel. Whatever it may be basic shape are often used to create extraordinary things out of something simple. In the video below I do just that taking basic shapes such as rectangles, circles, and lines to make a cupcake base.

This is a two part video the first is listed below. The second will be upload on Wednesday April 17, 2019. If you have any question please feel free to comment below:  

I will sleep when I’m dead!

Hello All,

Yes I have returned from the grave! It has been a little more than five months and after a TON of TLC from the doctors here in TN. They have found the cause of my debilitating condition. I needed sleep. Dun..Dun… DUNNNNNN!

I am sure a lot of you are like “uh what?”….. No really I needed sleep, the problem was my body wasn’t getting any of it.  To which I am sure your saying to yourself “what the what, why?” Funny story that I really can’t type because it is super long and is more tragic than funny. So I will give you the short version. After Thanksgiving of 2018 my body started shutting down, which lead me to a massive amounts of doctor visits, tests, and OH SO MUCH MONEY.  My doctor noticed something and on a hunch sent me to a Sleep Doctor. I never knew they existed but yes there is a doctor for sleep.

After just one night of a lot of wires and a whole lot of forced air up my nose. The Doctors where able to determine my body kept waking me up every five minutes. The reason….. My brain was not getting enough of that sweet, sweet, oh so sweet air I have grown accustom to. Which lead to parts of my body shutting down, my eating habit to change, creating a fatty liver, oh and a whole other world of hurt. My body was trying to manage so much on so little. Creating a mountain of sleep debt which is a very real and very scary thing.

The doctor said I may have been dealing with this for years but it finally caught up to me. Yup that “caught up to me” part was five months in the depth of Hades. I was sleep drunk for five months, and if you have ever been drunk to the point of puking but can’t throw up so you can feel better. Because you know that liquor you drank is poison to your body at this point and needs to expel it otherwise it’s going to kill you. Oh and don’t get me started about the dizziness, weakness to your limbs, and collapsing. Oh yes collapsing, my brain was turning itself off.

Which left me asleep for 22 hours every day for 5 months!  Out of the 22 hours my body was only getting maybe 2 hours of rim sleep. I was missing life, my kids, my husband, myself.

Thankfully it was an easy fix. I know right, after all that misery, time, money, and doctor visit to tell me. “Hey you need sleep, here put on this Cpap machine and you should be right as rain.”  All I could to say to that is………”uh sure I will try anything at this point.” But I sure it came out more like “uh…..ssssssssuuurreee……TRIE….. atttt…poooin…uuuuhhhh.

After a month of trying the Cpap machine to my amazement, I do feel right as rain. I became more like myself. To the point I started exercising again, crafting, and enjoying life with my family. I feel like I got my life back. All because of sleep, I use to joke “ah I will sleep when I’m dead” well that what my body was trying to do. Get sleep if I didn’t I would be dead.

What am I up to?

Hello All,

Well looks like I haven’t posted since August, gezz I really need to update this more often. But you know life kind of gets in the way. ALOT!! I have been sick as a dog since the beginning of August and its hasn’t been the flu/cold. Nope! Allergies I tell ya, yup something called Ragweed has been terrorizing my scenes since August began.

Still being terrorized by other tree and flower matting dust and let me tell you I don’t like it. But that just a small part of what else I have been up to. I have broken away from Etsy and started my own site called store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com which I am still maintaining it. Adding tons of new SVGs but also added my ornaments. And order are steadily coming in. Which will keep me busy for the next few months.

I submitted my Partnership work to Silhouette of America, if things go well my SVG will be seen throughout the US. How crazy would that be! I am on pins and needles waiting on a response. I should hear back by this Friday. So fingers crossed.

I still twitching over at  twitch.tv/airideviant  Mondays and Friday 8pm CST. Working on Ornaments right now, but when January comes around again its going to be back to SVGs.

I hope you guys like the update, let me know if you have any question.

Hello All,

These are a few more ideas that I came up with on Twitch.

For all you Pumpkin Spice Drinkers this one is for you! We though it best to cut the top to see if we can get more Pumpkin goodness in to the SVG.

Then we got a bit fancy and made some thing for Valentine’s Day.

How to Make “Home Made Jar SVG” Into Something Amazing

, , , , , , , , ,

Hello All,

So on Monday July 30th on https://www.twitch.tv/airideviant. I created four different project. A lemonade jar holding some sweet sweet lemonade, a Halloween shaker jar tag, a Valentin’s Day plastic shaker tag, and a Fairy in a jar Card. Which you can find at store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com for only 0.99. I will be streaming again this Friday at 8CST. If you want to check for any changes check out my facebook at www.facebook.com/UniqueDesignsByMonica.

This jar had only one modification which an easily done by hand or cutting machine. I just hallowed out the middle into a rounded edge rectangle.

Very much like the jar above I only to make one modification and that is add a score line near the lid to make it fold. Since you can resize the file you can make all this project as big or a small as you want.

To show you guys how versatile this file is I went from frame type of shaker to plastic covering.

This final jar was used as an embellishment to make a sweet card to give to any friend.
