September Scrapbook Train Layout - Page One

Good afternoon all.  I am here to share a scrapbook page from Creative Kuts Scrapbook Train from last September 2016. This is page one of a two page layout:


I cut the mat and layered onto brown cardstock (this is a Fall theme layout), and rather than cut the flowers and adhered them together, I made a digital image of both flowers, and painted them with my watercolor paints - I have several sets and do not know which set I used on these flowers.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and may God Bless you all.

Easter Chick in Basket



Hello all, I am back with another Easter Card that I would call a 'shaplie'.  Using a file from, I believe miss kate cuttables I print and cut the chick using yellow card stock.  Also, with a black gel pen, I drew around the chicks cheeks to highlight it.  (I print and cut, using Cricut Design Space.)  The card base was created, using Make the Cut software; and once I was happy with the results, I saved as a svg file, and loaded it into Cricut Design Space for cutting.

The ribbon bow is from my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition library that I downloaded from the online store.  I print and cut the ribbon bow, and drew the dotted lines in; but have since done it in the software!!

I placed eyelashes around the eyes, and drew dashes around the card front and the basket.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and may God bless you all.

April 1st Challenge - Flowers



The above card has flowers standing in a pile of snow, indicating it's Spring around the corner.  Using my Cricut Explore and Design Space I cut this simple card out.  The 4.25 x 5.50 white card behind the front was embossed, using a snowflake design.  Placed the card with the snowflakes showing towards the inside of card, indicating it's still snowing.  (Apologize for no picture of inside of card, the apt I'm living in does not have the best lighting at all.)  I placed gemstones on the flowers; and the sentiment was printed on the snowbank piece.


This 2nd card is a print and cut of the silhouette outline of Santa in his Sleigh with Holly leaves, berries and flowers along the bottom that I colored in with watercolor crayons from Stampin' Up.  I corner punched the corner edges with my cloud punch from We R Memories.  Gemstones placed on three of the stars.

Easter Cards

Good morning friends.  I would like to showcase a couple Easter Cards I made recently.  The first Easter Card is for a child and some digital/cut file designers call this a 'shaplie card'.  What I did was created the front section first, using a background cut out of the bunny.  I used the boolean technique through Make the Cut software, but I do it differently than the tutorial I read way back when, but come up with the same style.  Than once this is done, I create the back of the card with mirror option and than weld the two together to come up with the card base.

The image itself is a cut file from misskatecuttables or Treasure Box Gems but I downloaded the eye files and placed where their eyes had been.  The mouth, I typed in the ), turning it upright to make the smile.  The nose is a heart I cut out with my cutting machines.



The inside of the card, I print and cut a bunny rabbit with Easter Eggs, and attached, as a border, to the bottom edge.  Stamped the sentiment using the Stampin' Up " Wacky Wishes'  stamp set.


This is a overlay from Creative Kuts that I got as a free file from Cheryl.  I cut the Cross base from gray card stock, the cross from taupe (?) card stock.  I had the flower in my stash so placed it n center of the cross.  Easter sentiment tag is print and cut and from Cricut Design Space.




That's about it for today.  Thank you for visiting with me today, and may you all have a blessed weekend.

What I am doing now-a-days




This is what my craft table looks like NOW.  Have been painting several pictures which I plan to frame and hang on my bare walls in my new apartment.  Long process, but it helps with the stress level.  But my cat, Deena likes to join me and get in the way. LOL

Thank you for visiting with me, and have a blessed day.
