Winner & Miss Kate Project

Welcome to my blog!

I posted some Easter Projects last week featuring Miss Kate Cuttables Easter Fun Paper Collection and matching Easter Fun Die Cuts. 

Miss Kate has generously offered a set to giveway on my blog!
I had my son with his newly broken arm :( pick the winner.

CONGRATS! I'll be in touch to get your address info.


Today It's my turn to share on my the Miss Kate Cuttable's Blog.
Before we check out the project just a reminder to grab the Freebie of the Week!

I made a wedding invitation shadowbox for my project.

I put a patterned paper as my background. I then cut the Decorative Square SVG.

I used the offset on my Cameo to create a background. Then I offset it again.
I added foam core under both shapes to add dimension.

I then added foam core under the invite and finished off with some embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you sign up to receive my emails so you don't miss the next giveaway!

New Release & Giveaway

 Spring has sprung at Miss Kate Cuttables.
The flowers are in bloom and the days are longer.
Bunnies, baskets, chicks and eggs
are all signs that Easter is upon us.

Miss Kate Cuttables has a new Easter line of
 paper packs and die cuts.
These newly designed Easter papers and
 die cuts includes all things Easter.
 Featuring baskets, flowers, 
sweet little chicks and bunnies,
 all in bright and airy colors.

The Miss Kate Cuttables design team will showcase
this paper pack for the next 3 days.

Easter Fun Paper Collection HERE.

Or, you can find the physical version
HERE on Amazon. 

Easter Fun Die Cut Pack

You can find the matching
 Easter Fun Die Cut Pack HERE.

Here's my first project:

I created a wooden sign using the Easter Title Banner for my project. 
I took a 9.25" x 24" board and stained it. Next I added a dry brush coat of white chalk paint.

I then cut the Easter Title Banner 
out of vinyl and applied to my sign.
I then painted with yellow chalk paint. 
After some dry time I removed the vinyl stencil.

I cut the eggs from the Easter Fun Paper Collection and 
EASTER from the Easter Title Banner  in brown paper. 
I inked the edges of the patterned paper.

This next step is a game changer for me! 
I applied a thin layer of modge podge on the back of my paper 
and applied to my sign. I finished off with some button accents. 
This is the first time I added paper to a wood sign 
and it worked perfect!

For my second project I created a two page Easter Layout:

I used the Easter Fun Die Cut Pack. 

For the right side of my layout I cut a large Geometric Easter Egg 
and added papers behind it from the Easter Fun Paper Collection.

Hope you liked my projects!

Bunny Challenge!

It's Challenge time for Miss Kate Cuttables and the theme this month is all about Bunnies!

I used this Easter Bunny SVG for my project.

I cut the bunny at 11.5" high so it just fit on my 12 x 12 Cameo mat.
I did not cut the grass or the egg. I wanted the bunny to hold a plastic egg so I can load it up with a few chocolates and some CA$H.

I secured the egg with some tape.
Here's another look at the bunny:

Easter Decor

It's my turn on the Miss Kate Cuttables Blog today and I'm sharing a fun Easter Decor project. Who's ready for Spring? I AM!

Before we check out my project don't forget to grab the Freebie of the Day from the Miss Kate Cuttables Website.

Here's my Easter Decor Project:

First thing I did was paint my wooden round. I have been wanting to try the buffalo plaid style for a really long time and finally gave it a try! (Search YouTube for tutorials)
Here's a look at my plaid pattern:

I then planned out my wording and the leaf accents...I wanted to keep them simple.
I used just the "Easter" portion from this Easter Title.

I used the only the green leaf layer from this Spring Wreath SVG.

I placed just the elements I wanted to use in my cameo software and placed the Easter on top of the wreath and subtracted the wreath so they would not overlap. I cut this from vinyl, applied it to the sign and used chalk paint and a foam brush to add the green and pink. 

Since the background pattern was a bit busy I was not happy with the contrast of the Easter and leaves in the wreath. I first decided to do a solid fine point sharpie around the elements then decided to do a line/dot pattern. It's a bit less forgiving and I like the look. 
Here's my work in progress...

I experimented at the top of my sign where I knew my flower and bow would cover up. 
I added my flower and ribbons to the top and placed it on a stand. Super happy and love the bright spring colors.


Thanks for stopping by today!

MKC Shamrock Challenge

It's Shamrock time over on the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Page! Shamrocks are the theme for this month's challenge.

For my project I created a super cute St. Patrick's Day shadowbox!

I featured the Irish Owl but left off the balloon. You can grab him here!

I use foam core under my cuts to lift them off the background so the shadows appear.

I also used several shamrocks and layered them and added buttons as accents.
Here's a closeup:

Hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day this week and join in the challenge!

Mardi Gras Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends! It's challenge time over on the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Page. The theme for the month is Mardi Gras. 

I created a cute little card for my project using a Mardi Gras color scheme.

I used the Decorative Doily file for my card. You can grab it here!
I used two of the three layers and added a circle behind the cut to follow the shape of the card.

I added a banner and a stamped sentiment. Hope you join in the fun for this month's challenge.
