    New Desk Part 1

    I had this big idea for building a craft desk out of some panelled doors from my old house. I shared the idea with my friend Kim, who is much more capable of building things than I am, and she started to blow my mind with constructing legs and adding this and that. Then I called the glass shop to find out how much it would cost for a glass top. The price was around $80 bucks which wasn’t awful but I couldn’t justify $80 for something I was going to glue and paint on. So the idea fell flat until a picture came up on Pinterest for a door/desk…

    Bunny In a Pot Too Cute

    Hey gang here is another great cut from Creative Kuts from the Easter Treats Collection.  Our local Lutheran High School is holding a silent auction.  Our Pastor and his son-in-law got together to make an enormous planter and I put this basket together for our Ladies Aid group.  The basket has potting starter for a herb garden,  herb seeds, a watering can and some silk tulips.  The bunny tag is adorable if I do say so myself. This is the quote from the tag. “Rabbits have a habit of coming for breakfast and staying for lunch. Now there’s one leaf instead of a bunch.” – Gerry Krueger As I said…

    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…

    Pop Up Cross Card

    Tis the season of confirmations and Easter celebration.  I love the bunnies but you always need to keep in mind the true reason for Easter.  Today I have a pop up Easter Card in SVG, PDF, MTC, SCAL and DXF format.  You could also print and cut the card if you don’t have an electronic die cutting machine. I used DCWV paper collections, perfect pearls and chalks to highlight the die cuts.  All the images on in the picture are included in the card file. [wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id=52]
