Day 482

My grandson is a huge Dora fan so when I saw this file I had to make it for him. It was on a free SVG site and I converted it to KNK. It has some pretty tiny pieces so I decided to cut most of it from vinyl. I made a background piece from white paper, then cut the brown body from brown paper, the rest is vinyl. Her hair is outdoor vinyl so it has a glossy finish.Now I need to make some cards. I made 9 of these so that I can also send some to my great nieces and nephews.If you want the file just e mail me. I am happy to share any file that I did not purchase.

Day 481


My nephew just became a first time dad to Olivia Elizabeth. I couldn't resist making her this. The font is a 2 Peas font, but it took a fair amount of editing. I am not sure why so many of their fonts are "sloppy". The oval is 13x11.

Day 480

I finished the last of the 3 boys names today. I started with a 2 Peas font called the 4th of July. It was very jagged so I did a lot of node editing, made my own stars because it was quicker than editing the stars, and here it is. Doing things for kids is so much fun, I wish I could do it every day!

Day 479


This is the second of three names I am making for Jasmine's cousins. Gavin's dad is in the Army so I used a stencil font similiar to the Army font and did red, white, and blue. Once again it is about 12x24. Much simpler than Spiderman. :O)

Day 478

This is another vinyl name that I made. When I made the vinyl "Jasmine" her cousins saw it and wanted their names. Noah loves spiderman. This was a pain to make. Lots of weeding and then transfering it, not something to do unless you have a lot of patience. :O)  But I think it was worth the effort. It is about 12x24.

Day 476

I have 4 Birthdays that I need to make cards for this week. I had some card blanks cut out from the Peace card that I made last week and decided it would make a sweet Birthday card. The font is PC Dazzle and it is cut from turquoise vinyl.

Day 474

I don't like it when I miss days posting. I made over 120 Christmas cards, and so many of them were the same so while they took up my free time, I didn't think you wanted to see the same card 50 times. :O)
Now that I am almost ready with Christmas preparations I spent a little time cleaning up and in doing so put together some card scrap cards. Here is one of them.

Day 473

This card was made using a Cuttlebug folder. It is just a simple winter scene but I love it!

Day 472

I love this file! The entire thing was cut from vinyl. The base of the card is the white colorblok from WalMart. It is the whitest white and has such a nice texture to it. I am not sure where the file is from. With Windows 7 I don't see the files the same way I did before and it makes it harder for me to go back and look at them.

Day 471

This cute little bird is from Treasure Box Designs. It was simple to cut and assemble.

Day 470

I think this card is so pretty. The file is from Sam&Hailey at Paperthreads. The Peace is cut from copper Oracal vinyl.The paper is from Colorbok at WalMart. It is a nice textured paper that comes 40 sheets for $5. I love to use white !
I thought I was doing pretty good with my card supply until I starting writing them and realize I need to make 50 more. And then my mom called to say she needs at least a dozen to finish her list. Oh my!

Day 469

 The cards today started with a MySrapChick free file. Not sure that I really like either of them. :O)
The last picture is our barn/garage and todays snowfall. The picture was taken from the house, through the window, so the quality isn't the best.  But the snow is beautiful!

Day 468

This design came from Treasure Box Designs. I think I may be addicted to paper piecing. Every thing but the "Warm Wishes" and the eyes , which are vinyl, is cut from paper.

Day 467

I cut this for a friend who has a 5 month old niece. It is cut from Oracal 631 pink vinyl .It is 22 inches wide and 13 inches high. The font is Spontscr from Klic n kut Studios. And of course it is cut on my KNK. So easy, so much fun, and hopefully it will look great in Jasmines room.

Day 466

My sister works at a group home for adults with disabilities. A few years ago I made Christmas stockings for each of the residents. Since then 2 have passed away and 2 new residents moved in this year. So here are their stockings. Their names were cut from felt with my Klic n kut.

Day 465

Another 6x6 wall tile. This was a purchased file but I had to redo it because the Parents and Grandparents did not cut well. I did an outline of them in KNK Studio to make it thick enough to cut properly.
