Good morning....

I will be removing some of my freebie files...the older ones, and listing them in Cut and Create Store for sale.

It will take me some time to do this as I am on three design teams as well as test cutting files for another website store....

Thank you for your understanding, and for visiting with me today.  Hugs and appreciation to you all.

Another month has gone by and it's time for another 2-day blog hop over at Creative Kuts. We were asked to create a Fall theme card for each day of the here is my first card for August 25.....

This is the front of the card of first card
All my cardstock is from Wal-mart...
The polka-dot paper I believe is a stash of Stampin! Up design paper.


Inside of the card

The polka dot paper from same stash of Stampin! Paper
The pumpkin and veggies part of the image, which by the
way I used the digi format and colored in with my CTMH
Exclusive Inkers Markers.
Button is from a button stash.


available at:
I created a digi format of the Horn of Plenty, colored with my Bic Markers.  
Used my Silhouette Cameo and SCAL3 and cut out a Big Ric-Rac
and adhered to just right about the sentiment shape.  Oh yes, I created
this shaped card first by duplicating and creating a shadow of the image and
than union it to a rectangle.
I cut out several leaves in three colors and adhered them
to the front, and a little pile in the corner
All card stock from Wal-mart or Michaels....

Love My Gadgets

I have been cutting files for SVG Cuttings Files ... testing the cuts on my Silhouette Cameo, and I created this layout of my granddaughter playing with her Dad's phone for this Love My Gadgets  layout.

Love My Gadgets
as a free file for one week and than goes in her store.

Pop on over there and check her work out.  I have found them to be great and easy to cut with
my Silhouette Cameo; and have done a few cuts on my Cricut Expression as well.  In fact, I have a 
Senior WordBook to create for my grandson here soon...using chipboard for the main pieces
and the Expression is being used for that project...LOL

Thank you for popping in to see what I have been creating, and hugs to you all.

Cut and Create Creations Store

I have reopened my store at Cut and Create Creations and presently working on files to list.  It will be slow as I am also working on various projects.  And I also decided to add a Finished photo of each file I submit so customers will be able to see what I have worked on and how it came out. 

Presently working on a Baby Girl's dress card (like a onsie) I will post the finished picture here as well as a link to the Cut and Create Creations store ...

Thank you for being patient with me.  Hugs to all.

Gingerbread Girl and Boy


PCD-Gingerbread Man 
Cutting Files

I cut out both a boy and girl Gingerbread Man and imprinted my Great-grandson, Carson, and his cousin, Alexis on another rolling pin to add some 'pop' to the Gingerbread figures.  

I first created a shape card using the Gingerbread Man for the edge of a 8.5 x 5.5 card and than cut out the Gingerbread Man figure and decorated with the eyes, mouth and frosting for the girl along with a heart that I glued red glitter in the center.  The eyes are colored in with a black gel pen.   I inked the edges with Holtz Distressed Ink ... Tea Dye as well as the edges of each piece.  The frosting on the girl is pink, whereas the frosting on the boy is white.  

I used the print n cut technique with the rolling pins using Silhouette Studio Designing Edition and than added them to the Gingerbread with foam tape.  

This cut file, along with the digi file will be available from Platypus Creek Digitals.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and hugs to all.

Cute Kids Halloween Release Witch Josie

Witch Josie
Cute Kits Halloween Release

I used my Sizzix Scalloped die cut and placed it on a folded sheet of cardstock, with just the edge of cardstock placed above the die to form a fold.  Than I cut 2 more scalloped circles with the die, and embossed the black with a embossing folder of a spider web, glued to the 2nd piece of scalloped circle.  The 2 circles was adhered to  half of the double cut scalloped circle forming a easel.  Than I used some scrap paper and placed on the die to cut half of the scalloped circle again, and placed on the bottom part of the easel.  I found the washi tape at Wal-mart and added that as a border, and cut out two bats with my Silhouette Cameo, curled the wings.  Cut out words Happy Halloween, placed Happy on the embossed spider web, and Halloween on the bottom piece of the easel.  Used Platypus Creek Digital Cute Kids Witch Josie for placement on the web after I colored with my Bic coloring Markers and Stampin Up markers for the hair and skin.  

Please check out Platypus Creek Digitals blog for more of our design team projects.  And join in the Back to School Challenge this week.

Thank you for stopping by and hugs to all.  I hope to get my creative mojo back and post a freebie soon.

BAP #29....Photo Box


BAP #29...Photo Box

Also, the Recipe/Photo Box is available in the Autumn-Winter 2012 edition of Close to my Heart Idea Book & Catalog on page 132 ... Item # Z1322 for $6.95 ea.  I am not affiliated with CMTH...just that the next time I will make this I will order the box already assembled and decorate rather than cut out chipboard, etc.  All I would do is decorate with paper like above and embellish...the box and inside would be put together and the inside would not 'bend out' like mine does...LOL  

Thank you for visiting and hugs to all.
