Day 700!!!!

This was an oops card. I was cutting a heart that I think was 3 layers and I screwed up with what color the layers were suppose to be. So this card was made using one layer of the heart and a Happy Birthday I had precut. The Heart and Happy Birthday are both cut from vinyl.

Day 699

This card is one of the benefits of making more than one item at a time. When I have to cut a title or an object I generally make as many as I can given the size of the material I have. If 10 birds fit on a 12x12 piece of paper, I cut 12. :O)  So this card was just made with things that I had cut for other projects but had left over. I think the bird was from a site called Precious Piecings by Lisa or something close to that. The bird is all paper, the Happy Birthday is vinyl. Both were cut using my Klic N Kut Maxx!

Day 698

I think this was made with a quickutz embossing folder. I used textured white paper and embossed it and used pastels to color the bird and the leaves. The berries were colored with red stickles. I may use it just the way it is or I may add a sentiment.

Day 697

This card is the result of a free file from My Scrap Chick.
The musical notes, all of the  black on the card, and the Happy Birthday are all cut from vinyl, the rest of the card is
coredinations textured paper. The "Happy Birthday" was
Not part of the file. It is Calligrapher font. And of course it was all cut using my KNK Maxx.

Day 696

I had a bunch of these little heart shaped cards made and never used them. It is small enough that it could be used as a gift tag and a Birthday present. Shaped cards are fun to make but so simple!

Day 695

I must have cut yesterdays carriage and this file for a scrapbook page that never got made. The file would have come from the same place as the carriage. Simple but I think it makes a sweet card.

Day 694

 This card part is dang near an antique. :O)  I think the file is from a now defunct site called something like wishingblade ??? It was an adorable file and one of the first things I cut with my first KNK.  For what ever reason it sat in a box and when I came upon it decided it needed to be made into a card.

Day 693

A combination of old and new. I have so much patterned scrap paper and it seems like it has been ages since I have used any. I had this floral piece sitting out and decided to use it for this card. The center pink was part of a collection of files called tags and I cut it from pink textured Coredinations paper using my KNK Maxx. I also had the Happy Birthday to You cut out (vinyl) and ready to go so it didn't take long to assemble this card.


For those of you waiting for the update here is Tash and her sister Kala. Our visit went very well and we are so happy that they were able to reunite after 25 years.

Day 692

Happy Valentine's Day! This card was made using a free file from "Tired Lady" on one of the KNK Yahoo sites. It was an SVG which I converted to EPS using Inkscape, and then imported it to KNK Studio. I had to do some editing, not sure if something got lost in the conversion or what but there were lines missing. But what a sweet card!  Thanks Tired Lady, right now I share your name. :O)

Day 691

It's been a while since I have had time to play. We have had a bathroom remodel from hell which has consumed way too much of my time. The good news is, that while the bathroom still isn't done after almost 2 months, it is now 100% usable. And the other good news is that because the entire house was covered with a layer of remodeling dust it forced me to do some major cleaning. I can now see parts of the counter top in my craft room. :O) So today I took a break and made a card parts card. I don't know where the elephant came from but I do know that I printed him and cut him out. The heart was cut with my KNK and the pink part embossed with my Cuttlebug and the dot folder. The I Love You A TON was cut from vinyl using PC Dazzle font. I can't tell you how good it felt to sit down and make a card!
Tomorrow my daughter's sister is coming to visit! Tash was 2 when we adopted her and she had a 4 year old sister that stayed with her parents. After a 25 year separation I found the sister on Facebook and she is coming from Israel for a short visit. I am so thrilled that the two of them will get to see each other again!

Day 690

Am I on a roll or what? Another embossed card, this time I believe it is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The heart was made using a KNK cutting file and my KNK Maxx. The words are Calligrapher Regular cut from vinyl using my KNK. It was all card parts that came together step by step.
