PPPR Fun with Puns Blog Hop

Hey, everyone! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Fun with Puns Blog Hop. We have all sorts of fun and PUNNY projects to share with you today using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. We also have a fun freebie and a chance for your to win a Gift Certificate to the PPPR store. Oh, and we're also kicking off our next challenge theme. So, grab a muffin and some coffee, and settle in to see some awesome PUNNY designs. Here's what I created for the hop:


I used several sets to create this fun little card. I created the card base using a shape from the Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files set. The little squirrel is from the Nuts About You set. I used the release compound path feature in Silhouette Studio to remove his little nose and tooth from the squirrel so I could make them a little smaller. That way, the glasses from the Bread and Butter Cutting File would fit more naturally on his little face. Of course, he wouldn't be adorkable enough without his little graphing calculator from the Secondary Supplies Cutting Files. I put all of the files together in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software, created an offset outline, and did a print and cut with the whole image. That way, I could just pop it right on top of my card base without worrying about all of those tiny calculator pieces cutting out! I added a fun sentiment from the Pretty Cute Stamps Adorkable stamp set, and my fun and punninlicious card was all done!  Here are links to the products I used for my card:




Of course, I have a sweet little freebie just for you guys. This sweet little punny typewriter will be available for FREE on Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14 ONLY. Then, it will be available for purchase in the PPPR store. You can get this freebie HERE:
