Happy Birthday Trio





Hello everyone!  It’s Kim from KatydidCards.  This is my first post as a Miss Kate Cuttables Design Team member and I’m just so happy to be here with you. 

First order of business…I want to remind you to get the freebie today (and every day).  Just click on this link.  I’ll wait here for you if you want to do that now…just don’t forget to come back as I have something fun to share with you!

Here’s my project, made using the Happy Birthday Title.  I had a bit fun with it, though, turning it into a card, tag and gift bag set.   I saw a video on making a stacked card front with a die cut and I was sure I could use one of the many Miss Kate's titles to do something similar...even better since it's so much easier than using die cuts.

Let me show you the card first and then I'll tell you a bit about how it came together.



I sized the title for the card front and then created a quarter inch offset of just the word Birthday.  Then I centered the offset in a 4" x 5 1/2" rectangle and ran a cut line across the card, slightly above center.  To set it up for cutting, I placed the title back inside the offset and cut this in five different colors.  I also cut the party "confetti" with each color.

As you can see from the picture I slightly offset each panel by about 1/16".  I trimmed top and bottom of each piece to allow a 1/4" space to allow the card base to show.   The Birthday was also layered which looks really cool from the side as you can see all the colors.



I then placed the layers for the candle on top and the various pieces of the confetti and made them all sparkle and shine with various products.



I cut the happy and attached it at the top of the card...with more sparkle and shine.



Taking my cues from the title, I created the sentiment for inside the card and used the balloon which is included with the cut file.  I also created lines the same colors as the layers on the front.
 

I enlarged the candle and confetti and placed them on the front of a dollar store gift bag and added still more sparkle and shine.


Then I shrunk the card front cut file to make this adorable tag.  I printed the birthday on the white card stock rather than cut it as it was too small to cut.   I punched a small circle on the side and ran some Bakers Twine through it.  I think this is my favorite of the three pieces…I love miniatures.



And here's the set all together.  Ready for the next birthday celebration.

I hope you liked my project.  I'll be back again next month with another.  In the meantime, I'd love it if you came to visit me at Katydid Cards and said, "hello".

Guest Designer - Roberta Stevenson

Surprise everybody!!!
I am a guest designer for today on Miss Kate Cuttables. I was so happy when I discovered her site a few years back. I check back everyday to see what the new Freebie file is and I use her cuts a lot in my cards. When I found out that I was being offered a guest spot on her site, I was SUPER excited. I love doing all kinds of crafts and especially cardmaking. I make a lot of Birthday and Christmas cards every year. For today, I decided to showcase some Christmas cards I made using these 2 files from Miss Kate Cuttables. (Santa Paws and Frosty Fun). For the first card I used the files which can be found HERE.

Here is a closer look.

I cut out the images using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space. Then used my Xyron to assemble the pieces easier. After assembling the items, I used Clear Wink of Stella on "Santa", the holly and the bow. On the leaves, I used Wink of Stella - Green 040. For the face on the cat, I used Peachy Keen Stamps - PK110 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment. Used StazOn - Jet Black ink and Ranger - Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Brightened up the eyes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Adding a touch of pink, green and red markers to accentuate the eyes and mouth. Patterned paper is from Bo Bunny - Silver and Gold Collection Paper - 6 x 6 in pad. Square stitched backgrounds is cut out using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Went around paper background edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo. For my next card, I used the files from "Frosty Fun" which can be found HERE.

Aleene's Glitter Snow below the feet and igloo. Extra snowflakes from Holiday Time - Snowflake Stickers - Forever in Time. Background paper - Recollections - Blue Christmas - 6 x 6 in. paper pad.

'Tis the Season To Be Spooky

Hi Everybody! 
I'm so excited to share another Miss Kate Cuttables project with you! First I want to make sure you grab the freebie of the day:
 
 
 
Now, onto today's project! Here is the file I used:
 
 
 
 

Every year for Halloween, my kids and I create a graveyard in our front yard.  It's become a super fun family tradition, and I love seeing how as the kids get older the different things they come up with for decorations!

 
*The digital papers from the Halloween Night Paper were so perfect for this layout!  I used the Spiderweb paper for the background.  Then I added the different colored polka dot papers in this pack for the photo mats.

*For the title, I used the 'Tis the Season to be Spooky as a JPEG file (that has the white background included) to help it stand out against the background.  I used my photo editing software to soften the edges.

I hope you enjoyed my project! I'd love to see some of you try one of these and share it on the Miss Kate Cuttables Facebook page HERE, or on my Facebook page HERE. TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)

Vacation Memories Layout


Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Miss Kate Cuttables!  
In keeping with the Travel theme this month at MKC, I created a vacation themed layout for you today! I really had a blast creating this layout and remembering the fun we had on this trip! 

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 Vacation Memories title and the airplane file. They both compliment each other really well in this layout.





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