Cute Cards

Hey Everyone - I have some cute print and cut cards to share with you today. I just love doing the print and cuts with Miss Kate Cuttables files on my Cameo.

For the first two cards I used the Abstract Owl from Miss Kate Cuttables.


The stamps are from Craftin' Desert Divas.


Miss Kates Cuttables has a fun challenge over on the Facebook Page. 
It's a MONOCHROMATIC challenge.
Stop by and enter before March 31st.

I also created these Springy Cards - Image is Wildflowers from MKC & Stamps from Craftin' Desert Divas.


Next up on my crafty list are these fabulous new Easter Treats 3D Kit from Fleurette Bloom.
I've already imported into into my Cameo Designer Edition Software and have my papers picked out!
Stop back to see my finished Easter Treats.

Hi Everyone - I'm up on the Miss Kate Cuttable Blog today.
 I have some Irish Recipes to share with you today. 
Perfect for St. Patrick's Day or if you live in an Irish home like me you can enjoy these year round!
I thought it would be fun to include these in with a Bridal Shower Gift for future generations.

For my project I have a set of three recipes:

I aded a grommet to the corner of each and added a ring. I finished it off with some ribbon.




Here are the files I used:

LOVE!


Happy Valentine's Weekend Everyone! So thought I'd share some Valentine projects featuring products I LOVE to craft with.

First up I have a few Valentine's cards I made. I did a print & cut of the Love Robot Girl and Love Robot from Miss Kate Cuttables.


(I recently won these at their link it up party and LOVE them)




Second project for today has a little bling. I learned how to create with Rhonestones at a Warrior Weekend I recently attended. Kelly my instructor said she got permission from SVG Cuts to use their freebie frame from 11/6/14
I said "Oh you must of talked to Leo." Me and SVG Cuts go way back and I will always LOVE every project Mary creates :) 

Here's my blinged out project.



And last but not least here is my "Love Is In The Air" Hot Air Balloon SVG Project Kit from Fleurette Bloom.
Don't you just LOVE it? I even used Hearts A Flutter Digital Paper Pack for the balloon. 


Once again I used the Simply Said stamps from Craftin Desert Divas to accent my banners.
Twine is from Trendy Twine.

Hope you enjoyed my LOVE projects! Have a great weekend!

MKC Kickin' It Layout


Hello Everyone - Hope your weekend is going great. 

I'm at a Silhouette Warrior Weekend hosted by Art-Tech, my local scrapbook store, and I am creating all sorts of cool projects with my Cameo. So far I've etched, created a t shirt with HTV, did Rhinestones, used the Pen Tool on a banner and created Stamps.

I think my favorite was the stamping material. It is pretty cool and I'll share some of my creations soon. I still have all day tomorrow too!
Shout out to Kelly Rowe - she's doing an amazing job teaching 16 people who are all at various skill levels.

-----------

I'm up on the Miss Kate Cuttables blog today and have a two page layout to share.

I cut the title from the Kickin' It file.
The stars are also from the same file. I selected the star and offset in my Silhouette Studio software to create shadows and layered them. 
I added foam tape to make them pop off the layout.


I had a bunch of far away action shots (maybe I need a zoom lens!) 
so I decided to cut the soccer ball from the Sports Ball Collection 10" wide.
I then cut my photos to fill in the gaps of the ball. (I did not use all the layers of my soccer ball).




Here's a close up of the title:




I finished off my layout with the soccer shoe and I did the journaling on my Cameo using the pen tool.


Thanks for stopping by today - stop by the MKC Blog to leave me some love over there. :)

Design Team News! & Valentine Decor

I have some exciting news - I’m joining the Fleurette Bloom Design Team!
Fleurette creates original SVG files, printables and digital papers and I am so honored she invited me along on her creative journey.

Please stop by the website and blog to check out all the wonderful creations.


I'm also so excited to be reunited with some ladies that I've worked with before and some new ladies I’ve admired for quite some time.

Here is a Valentine Decor project I created using Fleurette’s Dia De Los Muertos 3D Kit.


I started out with a 10.25" x 8.5" chalkboard from Walmart. 
Don't you love going to the grocery store and stopping by the craft section for supplies? ((I DO!))

Here’s what you'll need:


I opened the banner file in my Silhouette Designer Edition. I ungrouped and deleted the border elements. I sized it to fit my chalkboard and cut out of vinyl on my Cameo. Weed out the areas you want to paint using the Xacto Knife.

I transfered to the chalkboard using transfer tape and added blue painters tape to cover up my frame. Paint the exposed areas with the foam brush and use a fine brush for the tight areas.  Use a small amount of acrylic paint and dab on for a chalk effect.
After it dries remove the tape and vinyl. (this is the fun part!)


I painted the frame with a light coat of white acrylic so the wood grain shows through. Cut the Small Rosettes from Fleurette Bloom's Lush Flowers 3D SVG Collection. I used the tweezers to hold the end and wrapped the paper to form the rosette. I secured with a glue gun and added colored pearls.


I hope you enjoyed my project. I am very excited and honored to be on the team.

I can not wait to make this wonderful Hot Air Balloon SVG Project Kit "Love Is In The Air"
