Guest Designer Ginger Ropp

Hello everyone! 
Today I am a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables. For my project I used a really fun watermelon set file. This awesome little file has three different watermelon die cuts. 

I decided to create a shaped card using the half watermelon. I also thought it would be fun if it was a shaker card. Here's my watermelon shaker card.

The card measures approximately 4-1/4 inches. For the shaker part of the card I used some black and clear sequins as the watermelon seeds. Whenever I create a shaker card I like to cut multiple layers and stack them so I don't have to use foam adhesive. The sentiment for my card came from the CardzTv stamp set Fun in the Sun. I stamped the sentiment in black and added a couple of black sequins to the sentiment banner as well. That's my card for today. 

Thanks to Miss Kate Cuttables for allowing me to be a guest designer for them. Love me some Miss Kate's! Have a great day!!

San Diego Scrapbook Page

Hi, Miss Kate fans! 

Before I show my project for today, I want to remind you to go and get your Freebie of the Day!  Click HERE!
Todays project is a scrapbook page with lots of photos.  I don't know about you but I always seem to have tons of photos but I prefer single page layouts to two page spreads.  So I am always trying to find ways to get lost of photo on the page and still have it look cute.

I was able to get 10 good sized photos on this page but it didn't leave much room for embellishment.  In comes Miss Kate - I used her cute Anchor file and Make the Cut to create the tile.  Some journal strips and the page was done! :D
I hope that you enjoyed my project for today and that you will come by and visit again!  Our designers are the BEST! :)

Guest Designer Lorie Ames

I am SUPER excited to be here as the Guest Designer for Miss Kate Designs.  I have long loved MKD's files and was so excited when they did a GDT call and they offered me a position this month!  I needed to chose the files I wanted to work with way back in January so it was a decision of...what am I going to be wanting to do and get done in July.  I immediately thought of my 15th Wedding Anniversary and decided to make a card (or something) with the files I chose which are:  this prince and this princess.  

Now I have to tell you I did A LOT of thinking about what I wanted this to look like and what papers I wanted to use.  I googled several words for papers and finally came up with this paper from Graphic 45 called Enchanted Forest.  It is not exactly what I was looking for but it definitely works.  Apart from the prince, princess, and photos of me and my husband just about all of the embellishments came from the paper pack and an additional tags and pockets sheet from Graphic 45.  So...shall we get on with the photos? 

 I'm not sure what prompted me to try this According File Folder but I found the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers and I thought it would be perfect for the plan in my head.  

 Okay, here is where you first see the MKD files come into play.  During our story the prince (my knight in shining armor) arrives on scene to save the fair princess from her broken heart. 

 The little post card on the princesses page represents the time my husband and I spent courting long distance (I do not recommend this at all!!). These files were SUPER easy to put together and come with a PDF of how to assemble if you need it.  I actually printed it out and followed it just so I didn't have to think as much!  LOL! 

 Above you can see a little more of the detail of the two files.  For both characters I have used papers from the same paper pack that I used for the rest of the project.  It totally makes this even more matchy and pretty I think.  I added a smaller panel of vanilla paper at the bottom of the pull out so I could write what I'm thinking about in our story by the characters.  Of course what princess would be without her jewels so I added pearls and rhinestones to the crown and her belt. 

 On the last two pages I added a wedding photo and a more recent photo of the two of us.  The little sentiment that is being pointed to by the chipboard arrow says...Life itself is the most wonderful Fairytale.  Then the sentiment under our current photo says Happily Ever After and I die cut the number 15 for the number of years we will be married. 

 Both of these pull outs have blank cardstock on the back so I can write a note to my hubby on them. 

And finally a little shot of the back of the book.  I thought it would be kinda neat to use this Enchanted Forest paper as a homage to the paper pack that I completely destroyed putting the accordian file folder! 

Well, there you have it!  I know it is a super long blog post but I hope you love my project and are inspired by it to create something wonderful with Miss Kate Designs files!  HERE is a link to their store and HERE is a link the blog.  They are also on Facebook HERE and HERE is their group so check them out there as well (did I mention they have an amazing freebie every single day?)!! Our anniversary isn't until the end of the month but I'm glad to have this finished plenty ahead so I can concentrate on making cards to give him each day of our little little trip to the coast.  Have a wonderful day everyone!
