    Back from Easter Break with Some New Ducks

    Hello Ladies and Gents Whew what a week and a weekend. We did a little different this year.  The week before Easter we had a combo Easter, Confirmation and Birthday party.  Let me tell you 30 lbs of pulled pork with all the fixings will definitely feed 35 people once and possible 1 to 2 more times.  As I was stilling pulling pork apart at 10PM the night before the party I wish I would have known 15lbs would have done the job.  No biggie I had plenty to send home and still enough to put in the freezer for a quick meeal down the line. I also had to contact our Home Inspector before the madness begin. I had a…

    Sweet Dreams Little Sheep by Guest Designer Mary

    I have a guest designer.  I am fortunate to have Mary Perterson working with a set of my SVG files.  Mary is working with the Animal Barnyard collection.  Mary used the sheep from the collection to make her first of hopefully many projects. Mary tells me, “The star and moon paper, and the plaid paper is from Paper Studios.  I used Recollections pink to create the flower border (a file I created) and Recollections yellow cardstock. For the sheep, I did a print and cut for the face, using MTC and my Cougar.  I cut out all the pieces in three different sizes.  I wrapped the single body piece with…

    My First BAP Layout “My Little Peeps”

    This week I tried out the BAP from Creative Kuts.  Here is how the BAP (build a project) works.  Gina emails you a file and you send back your creation.  You can add your own flair, embellishments and SVG cuts but the base of the cut is from the BAP file.  So this is what I came up with. The title the border and the journal square are all from Gina.  She even gives you the layout sketch which awesome.  The chick here is mine from the animal barnyard collection.  From there I added some Paper Studios ribbon holders, some fiber on the chick and google eyes.  I was sure…

    Animal Barnyard

    I got a little carried away.  I needed a cow for a baby album and then I started to play and the pig arrived.  Then I thought what would a farm be without a lamb and then I played all week making designs instead of actually making the baby album.  But….. I did finish the entire barnyard animal set.  I made each design in MTC, SCAL, SVG, PDF and something new to me DXF format.  Then I went and made each design into a digi stamp and a cut and print clip art.  I packaged the whole set up and put it in the Adams Acres store.  All week I…

    Cat and Pumpkin Candy Bar Wrapper

    Today my inspiration was a bag of Hershey bars sitting on my desk.  Before I devoured them I thought I better get them wrapped up for Halloween Treats.  So this is what I came up with. This holds a 1.55 oz hershey bar.  The box is about 5 3/4 inches wide and about 2 1/4 inches tall.  I wrapped it with ribbon to hold it shut but you could use velcro or tape really your choice.  I used the Cat and Pumpkin file available in the Adams Acres store for the embellishments. [wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id=3] The candy bar file is available for FREE is my awesome Adams Acres when you enter your…

    A Pumpkin Good Freebie

    First project out of the new craft room.  I receive a Parent Connection e-letter.  It had this idea to print and cut pumpkins, fold them in half, glue them together and viola you and the kids have a craft.  Well is was cute but white, on white on white.  White and Halloween I couldn’t make the connection so this is what I came up with instead. I cut 8 of the large pumpkins.  I folded them in half an pasted them together with craft adhesive spray.  I did a little chalking on the edges.  That wasn’t enough so I went back to Inkscape and added the vine and a smaller…
