Guest Designer - Debbie Crowder




Debbie from Craftinchaos here I am guest designing today for Miss Kate Cuttables. I have always loved her files and I own quite a few so I was really excited for the opportunity. I have been a card maker, 3d project maker and all around crafter for years. In the past 2 years I have been heavily influenced by the planner community so you don't see me crafting cards as much anymore but I make alot of things for planners.

Its just another extension of crafting that has become my addition. Planners are really hot right now. I own several of the Kikki K planners and they are my favorite because just like purses you can get them in lots of colors and it becomes a fashion piece almost. I also have several of the Happy Planners and they are so versatile and economical so they are excellent planners for a newbie or someone who doesn't want to invest $90 and up for a planner.

One of my favorite things to make for my planner is paperclips. I have been addicted to making them really. I challenge myself daily on what I can create in miniature. Some designs just don't work out because once you reduce the image to fit on a paperclip the parts become so small they get a bit chewed up by the cutting machines. I typically try to keep my clips under 2" in height. With the ones I will show you today I will let you know what I did to size them. You have to play around with this and once you make enough of them you will come to realize that certain designs will have to go outside that 2" mark but they still can remain small enough for the clip.

Like for instance the "beach girl" I did here I tried to make her smaller but once I cut her out she was actually too small so the height wasn't going to work on this design. So from top of head to bottom of feet she is just under 2.5" tall. The hardest park on this design was the bucket area.

The "sea turtle" and the cute "beach house" I opened the file in my silhouette program and I left them absolutely the same size they opened up as and they were perfect. I used alot of glitter stock on the turtle but unfortunately the camera didn't pick up the sparkle as well as I would have liked.




When I piece my clips I use Scotch quick dry. I purchased some bottles on Joann's and a fit tip also from Joann's (can only get those online, link below) and that fine tip is the key to piecing these little designs without blobbing a bunch of glue on them.

Once I am attaching the clip and the back (you mirror the base piece if using textured cardstock like I do. If you don't just cut 2 bases)  I use hot glue. I also have a very fine tip hot glue gun but unfortunately they have made a new model and although it is fine tip it isn't near as fine as the one I have. I will link to the one that is the replacement if you would like to get one.

Using the fatter tip glue guns can be impossible. Now this part takes alot of practice because the glue dries very fast and getting your back on without it being cockeyed is tricky but once you do it enough you will find your  way. I line it up and hold it tightly on one end as I glue the bottom half. Then once it is dry and secure I pull the paper back and glue the remainder. Pop those cute clips in your planner and you will have a cute stylish decoration for your planner as well as a handy way to mark your spot!

Baby Mine (Girl) Layout


Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Miss Kate Cuttables!  
In keeping with our theme this month, I created a baby girl themed layout for you today! I don't get to scrap baby girls so I really enjoyed making this layout. 

But first, did you know that Miss Kate Cuttables gives away a free file everyday?
YES, absolutely FREE. So what are you waiting for, head over there and get your free file now!!

For my project I used the Baby Mine (Girl Version) file and it is just the cutest as can be! I am planning on making the boy version of this file soon too!


I chose to use some Baby Girl paper from Authentique. I love the subtle colors of these prints.


Lots of pop dots add dimension to these adorable die cuts.


Page one Up Close! Just love the title!!


Page two Up Close... the elephants are just adorable and I had to give them wiggly eyes!


I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

Guest Designer - Gloria Williams

Hello Everyone!
Thanks for joining me as I guest design for Miss Kate's Cuttables.  It was amazing and fun  and I am really excited about these cards as well as the images.

The first is a print and cut for an image (Magical Balloons) that was one of Miss Kate's freebies.  You know you can never have too many birthday cards.  


 


The second is an image  (Pumpkin on a hay bale) that I chose to represent the fall season.



Thanks Miss Kate as well as your designers for allowing me to share.
Each card is A2 size.
