Pretty Fabric Floweers

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, here to share with you a pretty fabric flower using one of the "Flower Assortment Cutting Files" flowers.

PPPR "Flower Assortment Cutting File", I used the petal layers from "Flower 6"
thick cardstock
fabric scraps
fusible interfacing
fabric marker (disappears with water)
fabric scissors
pinking shears
I used my Cameo to cut the petal layers at about 4" and 3" across.  I also cut a small circle at about 1 1/4" diameter.  I cut them from heavy cardstock so they would hold up to me using them multiple times.
Make your layers of fabric and interfacing and then trace the petals using a fabric marker.
Sew along the marker lines.
Cut out each piece just outside the stitching.

Use a damp cloth to wet the marker lines and they will disappear :)
Layer them together and top off with a cute button and tie with twine or ribbon.
You can use just about any flower shape and size, and even add more layers.
Thanks for stopping by and have fun making flowers!

A Boot Full of Flowers

Hello fabulous people! Leah Schaeffer here today sharing a card! 
 I created a card with a mix of regular card stock die cutting and then also utilizing the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo. I adore that you can mix these concepts! 

 I started with designing my background. I layered a couple shades of green for the bushes/grass, added my blue background and clouds (then did print and cut). I then sized my boot and flowers. The layers on the boot are print and cut, as is one layer of the flower (top layer with yellow center) and the back was cut from regular paper.  I also cut a teeny tiny little tag!!! 

 Oh of my favorite thing is using the print and cut feature on textured paper. I use card stock from Walmart and trim to fit my printer. I think it looks a lot better this way then something 
printed on smooth paper =)

 A nice thick coat of Glossy Accents on the "rubber" boot ends up an easy and striking detail!

Here are the files used today!

Well thank you so much for coming by on this happy, happy Monday! Ha!
Have a great one!

Just 'chicken' in!!

Good morning! Jeanne here from Jeannes Paper Crafts sharing my design team project!

When I was looking through the PPPR files, I came across this adorable little chicken coop from the On The Farm cutting files. And since I hadn't used the cut before, I figured I needed to. :) And of course the little chick in the Cute Chicks files works perfectly with it!
The card base was created in Silhouette Studio using a file from my library.
The sentiment for my little chick comes form the Jaded Blossom Udderly Adorable stamp set.

Give Thanks Pocket Scrapbooking Layout

Soooooo...I JUST realized that I totally did not meet my New Year's Resolutions from last year. The fact that I JUST realized this shows just how busy I've been, I guess. One of my resolutions was to create at least one scrapbook layout (traditional or pocket-style) a month. You want to know how many I've finished this year up until now? One. Yep, just one. Well, now I can happily say that I've finished two, so I'm only about 6 months behind...LOL. Oh, well. In order to get SOME photos in a book, I decided to go with a pocket scrapbooking layout. I have some Thanksgiving photos from last year in my box of printed photos, so I thought I'd get those in some page protectors for an album. This turned out to be really simple because I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Thankful Pocket Cards to help me out. Here's my layout:

These files come as PNG files, so I just opened them in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software. Once I had them opened, I resized them to measure 3x4ish and 4x6ish. The images are a little smaller than this so they would fit in the pockets as-is. So, I could have just printed out the PDF file that comes with the set and cut them out with my paper trimmer, but I wanted rounded corners without having to use my corner rounder. Anyway...once I had them resized, I drew some rounded rectangles using the Rouded Rectangle Tool in the software, and I sized them to 2.9 x 3.9 and 3.9 x 5.9. That way, there would be a "bleed" around my cards so I wouldn't get those pesky white outlines that sometimes show up when you print and cut. Here's what my screen looked like. It's a little hard to see here, but there is a slight border of color/pattern around the cut lines...you can click the photo to see a larger image. (I colored the lines blue so they'd show up better for you. Don't do that to yours, or the color will print.)

And, that's it...one more layout down, six to go. Whew! Someday, I'll find those extra hours in the day that I seem to be missing. LOL. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, and Happy Labor Day to my US friends. :D

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. I hope everyone is having a great week. Today I would like to share a Birthday card I made for hubby to give to his dad. The card is an A2 size and the bottles are from the "PPPR Happy Hour Cutting Files". I used a VersaMarker pen to do an outline around the bottles and did some inking around the green pieces of paper as well with Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress ink. For the cute and silly faces I used Peachy Keen The Cornies Face Assortment stamp set. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from "PBD Birthday Birthday stamp set" and the Papi (Dad) sentiment is from the PBD Mi Familia stamp set.

Summer Fun Layout

Good Morning!  

Hope you're having a great week.  My boys went back to school a couple of weeks ago and I thought it would be fun to scrapbook some of their summer pictures.  My boys lived in our pool this summer so I have a lot of pool pictures to scrapbook.  

I made the background shapes using the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files and the Layered Labels 1 Cutting Files.  

The "Fun" part of my title is from the Camping Fun Cutting Files.  I created the shadow behind "Fun" in the Silhouette Studio.  For the "Summer" part of my title I used the Popsicle Fever Cutting Files.  I just cut the "A Taste of" part off of Summer in the Silhouette Studio.  

The boy jumping in the pool is from the Diving Boy Cutting Files.  For his face I used Peachy Keen's In the Garden Face Assortment.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great week.
