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 will be working on projects with these darling little barnyard animals.
I received a comment today regarding welding text inside of a shape. They didn’t specify which program they wanted to use so I went out on a limb and made a video teaching this idea using Inkscape. If you can learn to use Inkscape you can use the SVG you create in lots of electronic die cutting software programs like MTC and SCAL.

What’s better than a best friend. One of my daughter’s best friends transfered to a different school this year but with Facebook, texting and parents that drive they still have the best freindship. I created this with an SVG I crated for this blog hops. You can download the SVG by enter your email address in the form below. In the file you will also find digi stamps of the quote and the butterfiles.
I was able to use lots of techniques on this layout. Die cuts of course and digi tamps for the quotes. I inked the edges of the white base card stock with pink ink and then stamped hearts with embossing ink. I pounced the hearts with blue chalk. To add one more layer I used a Close to my Heart Stamp for the puple stamps. I hope you enjoy the file.

Thank you for hopping along, we hope you have found lots of inspiration from our Favorite Quotes Blog Hop.
Did you have a Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope so. I hope your sweetie showed up with something really good. Mine showed up with pizza. The whole family ate by candlelight in the formal dining room. The kids opened up heart shaped boxes full of kisses. Kisses in foil and kisses from their mama. The kisses from mom were received with mixed acceptance. The littlest one is stilling allowing PDA the other two are sort of humoring me.
I have the box template for download below. The template on its own is terrific. You can cut it by hand or use your favorite software and electronic die cutter to cut it. I created a little video to show you how to fold it and glue it.
Have this file emailed to you.
I promised you a video tutorial on the I-Rock Tool and I have finally done it. There is also a little info on the Bazzill Senior Splat mat. Today I finished up another Valentine Card with paper from the “Be Mine” stack from DCWV. I inked and chalked it for added dimension. I added the bling with the I-Rock tool as well. The cutting files are listed below. The cutting files include two card cuts.
The embossing is done with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder and a Cuttlebug D’Vine Embossing folder
Sing with me, “The weather outside is frightful, but my craft rooms so delightful.” Thank goodness this isn’t a video post nobody would want to hear me singing all day. Well singing aside I found some inspiration to make cards for a a couple of people on my list that need a few prayers and a little pick me up. I put this card together for a pick me up card and a get well soon card. I used files from the Bird Cage Collection, and the Kitty in a Pumpkin Set. The inspiration for, the card came from a sketch from a new challenge blog called Love to Create.
The kitty got i-rocked with the i-rock tool. I used tiny little pink rhinestones for his ears and eyes. While I was moving the tiny rhinestones around I started to wish I had the i-rock lighted tweezers. They were not available when I order my tool. They would have saved me a lot of frustration. I inked the scalloped circle and the heart. The quote, “Hang In There,” was printed using the second breakfast font. The upper hearts are white brads. I also added some extra bling on the heart to. The black background was embossed with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D’Vine, and inked in black. I finished it off with a red ribbon from my stash.
These are the two cutting files I used from the Adams Acres Store. These files come in svg, pdf, mtc, scut and png formats.
Made it through the weekend. We did get our 8 to 10 inches of snow as predicted but it was an easy snow. Came down beautifully. We lost power around midnight Friday night but that was no big deal as we were sleeping anyway. A few of our neighbors lost power for about a day but we are hearty stock here in the midwest and a day without power isn’t too bad.
I had a little time to do some creating and came up with this series of interlocking hearts. I know I will use this file again and again for cards and layouts.
The file comes in pdf, png, svg, scut, and mtc. This is perfect for your Valentine’s Day cards. I added some ribbon and a button from my stash and a stamp from Studio G. I did a little more I-Rock-ing with my I-Rock tool and inked the edges in black. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss dots file to add a little texture. The cutting file is available in the Adams Acres Store.[wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id=44]
