Halloween Challenge at Miss Kates

Hello all. I have not blogged in a bit due to my nephew's wedding. It was busy leading up to the wedding and I made the trek to Duck Key, FL. The wedding was wonderful and so unique. It was nice to get into the Florida sun and spend time with family. Soon after we arrived back home Hurricane Matthew made it's way to Florida.

Today starts a new challenge at the Miss Kate Galleria Page. The theme for October is HALLOWEEN. I created this layout with my 2015 trick or treaters. 

The coordinating Boo Title was a perfect addition to my layout.

Stop on over at the FB Galleria Page and join in the challenge!

Fancy Frame Shadowbox

Hello! I love creating shadowboxes for newlyweds. It makes a perfect wedding gift.
I have made a bunch of these and usually use a bracket style file. I was in the mood to try something new on this one.

After searching Flourishes/Frames Category on the Miss Kate website I spotted these Fancy Frames.


I used the one on the top left. I usually do not stretch files but in the case I wanted it a bit wider and when I did stretch in the Cameo Designer Edition Software it looked just fine. I did create a shadow of the pattern and also cut the bottom layer in white. Foam tape and foam core under the layers helps add dimension and give the shadow effect. I also added some pearl accents.

Hope you enjoyed my project! Stop back in a few days to check out the Miss Kate's October Challenge.

Travel Challenge - Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello - It's Challenge Time over on the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Page! The theme for this challenge is Travel. I made a card to give to a friend who is going on a special trip.

I used the Icons from the Travel Icon Set. I did a print and cut on my Cameo. Here is a screen capture to show how I layed them out and did a slight offset. (Make sure you make your cut line a no fill before you print it)

As I was starting to apply on my card I thought - how am I going to get these to line up nice?
Well I took all the images and did an offset in the Designer Edition and did a dashed border. (Screen cap below)
I then used the pen tool to draw the outlines on my cardstock (actually used 4 different pen tool colors!)
I then added foam tape under the print and cuts and applied to the card.

Here's a look at the inside of my card:

I could not find the title I wanted so I created one from multiple files. Here's a closeup:

Make is from "Make a Wish Title."

The Happy is from "Birthday Words Set".

Memories is from the "Travel Words Set"

Hope you enjoyed my travel theme project. Don't forget to stop on over to the Galleria FB page for more info.

Dog Gone Cute Layout ~ Paper Die Cuts

If you are stopping over from the Miss Kate's blog welcome! 
I'll share my additional layouts using the Dog Gone Cute Paper Die Cuts. 

If you are not coming from Miss Kate's blog make sure you stop over and check out my Who's a Good Boy Layout.

Miss Kate has an amazing product called Paper Die Cuts. (Click here to see all the varieties)

For my layout I used the Dog Gone Cute Paper Die Cuts. 

Here is the left layout. This layout was created to introduce our new puppy Sadie to the family.

The title from Dog Gone Cute Paper Die Cuts worked perfect and I used some of the other die cuts on the page too.

Here is the right layout. I added foam tape under some of the diecuts to pop them off the layout.

How cute is the little dog house in the middle? I layered a star die cut on top.

Stop on over to the Miss Kate Blog to see my other layout. I still have plenty of diecuts left after creating three layouts. Ready to use on my next puppy layout!
