Quite a Catch !

Hello everyone !  I hope that you all have survived the Holidays and are getting into the "groove" of the new year.  I can't believe it is 2019.... Boy am I getting old !  
But I digress enough... On to my post...

This month I wanted to think about creating something for my husband for Valentines Day next month { because we all know it will be here before we realize it }.  I finally decided to use an SVG file from Miss Kate Cuttables that can be found here in the store. This is what it looks like:

My hubby loves to fish so I thought he would get a chuckle out of this image :) 

Here is what I created using a wooden heart as my background and various pieces of card stock from Recollections ( found at Michael's ). I used twine instead of the ribbon that was on the heart and added some beads to it for a little more dimension.

Here is a close up...

Hoping you all have a wonderful rest of January and a spectacular February 
with lots of fun things planned with those you love !
My hubby and I are going down to Florida to visit our son for a quick long weekend this weekend. But a quick weekend is better than no time as we live in Buffalo, NY and it is FREEZING here ! LOL
Until next month's post hope you all stay healthy and happy !

Print and Cut series with Jen's Crafty Place

Jenny from Jen's Crafty Place with today's part 2 of the "Print and Cut" series with Miss Kate Cuttables. Check out part one HERE.

 Before we get into the project, don't forget to go HERE to get your daily freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables.

This card is using the items we printed out in part 1.

I simply added my pieces to a simple base card and added some decorative paper to complete my Valentine's day card for my husband!!

I chose to add pop dots to my elements instead of cutting the elements out of the card base.

It is just as dramatic as the other card in part 1 but easier to assemble.

I added some glitter pen to all the hearts and the sprinkles to give it some glitz! That's it!! Thanks for stopping by!!  Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to get all the latest posts sent directly to your inbox!!

Love String Art

Hello Everyone! I'm sharing a new technique (for me) for my design team project. I will share step by step directions. 

Before we check out my project just a reminder to grab the Freebie of the Day!

For my project I tried STRING ART!

I am going to share the steps I took to create the project:

STEP 1: 
I selected the SVGs. I used the envelope from the Valentine Love Letter Set.

I also used a bold font for the LOVE. You can use the bottom layer of the Valentine Uppercase Alphabet. Once I imported the SVGs into my Cameo Software I converted to dots using the rhinestone feature. I converted the lines to dots. I used .25 spacing.

I cut vinyl with my Cameo. When I peeled the vinyl from the backer it left all the dots on the backer piece so it was super easy and there was no weeding needed. I applied the vinyl to my board and grabbed by hammer and nails.

STEP 3: 
I nailed in my nails. Using the holes in vinyl as my guide. 

I peeled off the vinyl when I was done nailing.

I grabbed my yarn (Walmart carries this brand)

I started by securing my yarn on a corner nail and double knotting it, leave a tail. I then went around the outside edge of the design, wrappng around each nail, sort of outlining it, keeping the yarn at the bottom of nail. Once it was outlined I started randomly wrapping the yarn until it was a desired amount of coverage.
Once it was completed I repeated the outline around the shape to finish it off and tied a knot at the nail I started on.

I decided to outline my envelope with black yarn - it helped to make it pop.

This project is time consuming but it was very fun! 

I actually took some iphone videos. Here are the links on YouTube:

Thanks for stopping by today!

Joy with MKC

Hi everyone, it's Sherri from The Squeaky Scrapper and I'm super excited to be able to join you for another year of fun with Miss Kate Cuttables.  Can you believe we're in 2019 already, I don't even know where 2018 went!   

Miss Kate is still going to be offering you a freebie of the day so don't forget to grab it Here!
For the first project of the year I thought I would show you one of my Christmas cards that went out, I would consider it a clean and simple card.

I used the tree from the Silent Night Christmas bundle, which looks like this.  I stickled the twinkles in the tree also.

 Feel free to stop on over at my blog and say hi :-) The Squeaky Scrapper.

Guest DT Christi Steinbeck

Happy New Year Miss Kate Fans !  Christi from Scrapping For Tranquility  starting the 2019 Guest Designers off this year.  What an honor to be joining Miss Kate's Guest Design Team for the 3rd year in a row!  I want to take just a second to say to her, Thank you soooo much for gifting me with this honor!  I have really enjoyed the last 3 years and hope to see 3 more! 

On to my project,

I am a little behind on my scrapbooking.  This is my 24 year old's newborn pictures when she was in the neonatal intensive care unit for being a preemie.  When I found these piecings of the gorgeous Sparkle Unicorn, Unicorn Head and Unicorn the title of "You Are Magical",  I knew Just what I wanted to do.

She was sooo tiny and had no fat on her she looked like a little Gremlin.  These photos, they had finally taken her off all the tubes and such and to me this was just "Magical".  Hence the title!  

The fantasy of the gorgeous unicorns and the beautiful stars was just how I was feeling at that moment.

Sparkle Unicorn
I used a white, lightly glittered cardstock for the the white and all the other cardstock was American Crafts textured cardstock.

The pattern cardstock I used is Doodlebug's Fairy Tale Line.

Unicorn Head

I used the Unicorn Head on the banners to give it extra dimension and to even the layout out.


To finish the layout  I put the Unicorn rearing up on the second page and called it finished.

I really was pleased how this newborn layout came out.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
