My Cutting Files

Hello Everyone...after much thought I have decided once again to share my cutting files with you all....If you are interested there is a link at the top of my blog underneath the header which will take you to my download site for the files.....Please be aware...while browsing through my previous blogposts... when you find a file you like.....the link for that image is will need to go to the link at the top of my blog to do a search for the file to it is too time consuming to go through each and every post and correct the links for the files. I trust you will all understand this.
I too, will again offer the entire collection for purchase on DVD if anyone would be will find the option for that in my store....As I create new files they will be complied on a DVD in the future for those who prefer to combine that way.

Lovin’ My Cri-Kit Pens….

Happy Tuesday Everyone…….I hope you’re all having a wonderful week!!! I am totally enjoying my vacation…very low key and perfect!!!  Spent the entire day yesterday in my ARTHaven…..didn’t complete a whole lot LOL but I still enjoyed it….and guess where I am today!!! Yeppers….you got it!! ;)
I DID get the chance to try out my new Cri-Kit Pens…..OMG  LOVE THEM!!!!   They are amazing…very very smooth….wonderful job and worked perfectly!!!!!  On the card I made yesterday I used the Metallic Pen in the Blue……then I used some of my Blick Alcohol markers in the open spaces of the font then took an embossing pen…went over the colored parts and then coated in clear embossing powder and embossed….the ink DID NOT smear at all……worked perfect with the alcohol markers and I LOVE it!!!

I also took my Fluer De Lei frame I shared the other day and modified it to make a rectangle frame….I’m sharing that file below if you’re interested in it…….
I used one of my Shaplies…….the “Forever Friends” was put on thick watercolor paper……then I cut two smaller layers of the next size down of the same in watercolor paper and used them taped together to do my embossing around the edge of the layer….then hit the edges with some of my VersaMagic chalk inks…….
I took one of my cream colored flowers…..and made up my own spritzer to color the flower blue with some hairspray…couple snips of Perfect Pearls…a touch of water and several drips of Alcohol Ink in a Mini Mister then sprayed the flower….dried with my heat gun….then I covered with Perfect Medium and took some blue Perfect Pearls and painted the flower to give more of a deeper color…..then I put glue on the edges of the petals and coated with a smoke glitter…….then layered several layers I had done the same technique too and fastened with a pretty brad as the center of the flower….
The small flowers I took some flowers coated in the Perfect Pearls coated with clear embossing powder and heat embossed…LOVE the affect then used a pearl dot in the center of the flowers…….and you KNOW I love ribbon….So this is my card….Would LOVE to hear your comments on what you think of it…..It felt SO good to be creative again!!!!!
Ok… If anyone is interested here’s the frame below AND I had a request to create a template into a cut file of a Travel Tissue box…below is what I came up with….As always…if you would like these just click on the images below and they will take you to the pages on my website where you may download them….

Okie Doke…..I’m off to play some more…..still working on a file I’ve had a request for…..still have to test cut to see if my vision is working….IF it does I’ll be sharing it soon….AS ALWAYS…THANK YOU for stopping by to visit with me….I pray you all have a very blessed day!!! I do hope you will come by again…until then….

What a pretty card! Just curious about a couple of the techniques...When you embossed the 'forever friends' section did you do it by hand, or did you put it through an embossing machine? Also, the concoction that you used in your you know why it needs hairspray to work? Is it because of the alcohol ink? I've been considering using food coloring for color when mixing with the perfect pearls and water. I'm not sure if that's a bad idea or not. Help? What do you think?

Oh, my goodness, Penny! I spent so much time trying to fulfill Chris's request for the punched circle, and then I made the fleur de lis frame as well, although I haven't posted it yet. Your punched circle is prettier than mine by a long shot. I should have waited !o)
