Flower Cut Cards

Today is a fun and easy project from Miss Kate Cuttables and me! I used a great technique which can be used on any design. I used it on some flowers.

Before we get started on the project, don't forget to get your DAILY FREEBIE over at Miss Kate Cuttables!

I took the file, "Daisy Flower Flourishes" I opened it up in my Silhouette program. I ungrouped the flowers and took the daisy with the red center and placed it on my mat. I sized the flower to the size I wanted and removed the area where the red center was. I then used my "slice" tool and cut away all the bottoms of the petals so all that was left was arches in the form of a flower. I then selected it all and grouped them. Save this file. Next take a rectangle file for your card front and arrange the new cut file you made where ever you want to cut the daisies. I made some of them large and some small. You can arrange them any way you would like, in a row, in a circle, all over or just one large daisy.
 This is a fun way to make cut files and use your files a bit differently then just cutting the file as is.


After I got all my card fronts cut, I lifted up the petals by bending at the base. Make sure you do good, clean cuts. Double cuts are a good idea to make your bending easier. Now all you have to do is add some scrap papers behind the cuts and mount onto a card base. I decided to cut my card front a bit smaller to add some interest. I added buttons, faux enamel dots and jelly dots to my cards. You can add anything you would like to the centers. Other ideas are: dimensional paint, puff paints, beads, pearls, brads, eyelets, enamel paints, cardstock punches or just color the centers with markers!

I hope you enjoy my technique and try it for yourself!! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!

Father's Day Fun !

Hello everyone!
It is finally starting to feel like summer might actually be right around the corner! I am looking forward to the end of the school year as I need to re-energize to be ready for September !

But first I want to remind you that Miss Kate Cuttables gives  1 free SVG file away Monday through Friday (with the Friday one up also on Saturday and Sunday so you have lots of time to grab that weekend one !)

I also want to remind you that Miss Kate has a monthly challenge that is always so fun to enter so you can check both out here.

Now on to my card... 

I thought it would be fun to flip this image horizontally and print it off on my printer before cutting it out on my Explore Air. I love how it turned out!
I used an embossing folder to create the star background and added a strip of "road" to ground the "woody" ! 
I think my Hubby will get a kick out of it and it will bring back some fond memories from our youth.
Have a great Memorial Day everyone!

School's Out for Summer

Hi there!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.

Many "back to school" cards are made using a chalkboard as a central focus, but if you're looking to stretch the use of your cut files, consider using the Back to School Chalkboard to celebrate the end of the school year as well.

But first, don't forget to pick up your Freebie at Miss Kate Cuttables.  A new file every day!
Now back to my card.  To change things up I replaced the back to school greeting with what you see below.  Did you know that Miss Kate also has a growing collection of adorable fonts?

I loved the color scheme Miss Kate used on the sample image, so I just used the same light and dark green combo.  The chalkboard itself was print and cut.  For a bit of additional authenticity, I took an Embossing Buddy to leave a little chalk dust on the board.

The file includes all the accessories.  As with all Miss Kate's files, there are lots of layers to add depth and dimension.  I added Glossy Accents to the apple to some shine!

All that's needed on the inside is a simple sentiment.

Thanks for visiting us today.  I hope you return again often.

Guest DT Marji Franklin

Hello there, I'm honored to be a guest designer.
I used the Hula Girl on my card.
I did a print and cut with my Cameo and used an action wobble to mount her on my card base that I created using some designer papers from my stash.
I added some sequins for shine.
You can click here to see a short clip of her in action.

Hi There! It's Amy and I'm sharing on the blog today. I have two layouts to share.

Before we get to the details about the layouts don't forget to grab the Freebie of the Day. 

+ + + + + +

For my first page I have a Soccer Layout:

I used the Love Soccer Title for my layout.
I did not want to cover up the cool patterned paper so I kept the title and a few photos the focus on the page.

For my second layout I used the Ticket To Fun SVG

Here's the layout. I used some of my son's snapchat images to mix it up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Guest Designer- Miranda Enclade

Good Morning!

I am super excited to be a Guest Designer at 

I was able to choose 3 awesome designs to work with and of course we didn't have to work with all three but I couldn't choose so, yep, you guessed it I used all three!

And if you know me at all you know I like simple and easy.  Each of the three designs can be used as a print and cut or as a regular cut image.  Of course I chose the print and cut because that is super simple, right!  

First up, I used Flowers in Mason Jar to create a Mother's Day card: 

Next I used a cute Octopus to create this card.  I'm not sure if I want to use it as a baby card or a birthday card so I didn't add a sentiment just yet! 

Last but not least, I used this super duper cute Graduation Owl to create a graduation card! Isn't he just adorable!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  
Be sure to head over to Miss Kate Cuttables to check out all of the AWESOME designs in her shop.  And if you haven't already liked her Facebook page you can find it HERE!

UNTIL NEXT TIME..................
