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 broken...you will need to go to the link at the top of my blog to do a search for the file to download....as 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 interested...you will find the option for that in my ETSY store....As I create new files they will be complied on a DVD in the future for those who prefer to combine that way.

Happy Monday!!!

Hey Everyone….I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Monday!!!  It’s very chilly here……a nice change of pace!!!   I thought I would share with you a few files I created……..Hope perhaps you might find some of them useful…..
Now this first one……I have TOTALLY FORGOTTEN who had requested this…but I just finished drawing it up and I sure hope she might see this…whoever it was!!! I feel like SUCH a dope!!! LOL
This next one is also a request I had received…..and she like it……so I thought I would share it with you all here……..

This last one is a file I drew in Inkscape to do a print and cut with……..I rather like how it turned out…….so I thought I would share with you the mockup piece I created with it…Haven’t used it in a project yet……but I still like it…..
The rose you see on this piece I made from Fantasy Film…..a friend from the BlackCatForumUS.com challenged me to make something using it……..so I gave it a whirl…….it cuts beautifully with my Lynx……I have to say I didn’t like the stuff flat so I lightly touched all over with a hot iron….just enough to get it to wrinkle up…then it allowed me to manipulate it the way I wanted to……Then I really loved the stuff!!!







Ok….that catches me up for the cut files for now……..I thought I would also share with you one wall hanging I created this weekend for an order I had received…..the person whom it’s for has already seen the pics so I can share with you now…..she should be receiving later this week….anyway…..I rather like how it turned out and the phrase she chose is BEAUTIFUL and worth living by!!!!









She loves red roses…..so I thought I would splash the cream color into the creation…….I used my Foil Master to foil the phrase and frame surrounding it in bronze….I LOVE how it turned out…really pops off the page….The frame started out as black and I used some wood crackle medium on it then painted with Antique Acrylic paint to achieve the crackle look….finished off with a couple brads and a few of my butterflies and some red satin/vellure ribbon….I hope she likes in in person when she receives it…..
Okie Dokie…..again…that catches me up for now…THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by to visit with me!!! I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed week….I do hope you will come by to visit with me again….Until next time….

Happy Happy Saturday!!!!

I hope you are all having a WONDERFUL weekend!!! Mine started out SO awesome!!! I was welcomed with a WONDERFUL surprise in my email!!!  A week or so ago I had signed up for a give-a-way Celeste at Touched By A Butterfly  was having on their blog for a Scrapbooking program……..Well I’m not a lucky person on winning things……so I kind of had written off even having the possiblity of winning…Wellllllllllllllllllllllllll…..Wasn’t I surprised when I found out I had won!!!!

I was so tickled and promptly went to retrive my win!!!  I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet….but I WILL!!! I’m planning on using it in creating my designs on my quilt squares I’m going to be creating!!!!  THANK YOU so so much Celeste for the surprise!!!!
So……being to tickled on my win I got the mojo going to play with some fabric…….I had some squares I had started some 10 years ago of pictures of my boys when they were small…….so I pulled them out…decided I would get some practice in on quilting by taking these squares and making me a little wall hanging………I’m very happy with the way it turned out….now I won’t give you close up images…LOL as I still need LOTS AND LOTS of practice….but it’s something I can look back on later when I hopefully have gotten better!!!!  But I still think it turned out cute….




I deliberately made the leaves kinda wavy……so they go in and out of the border and image……I was just wanting to play with some of the stitches on my sewing machine…….I used my YoYo maker to make the round pieces…LOL  I had gotten a circle Accucut Die that allowed me to cut the circles the PERFECT size to use with my YoYo makers so it make it super quick on them…….I KNOW this isn’t perfect…..boy it ain’t even close……LOL  but I WILL get better……she says with her fingers crossed!!!!  But it’s a piece I can keep and treasure cause it has my babies on it!!!!!! 
Okie Dokie Artichokie!!!!    That catches me up for now!!!!!  I hope you like my excitement I shared….. pray you all have a wonderful evening and a very blessed Sunday!!!!  As always…THANK YOU so much for stopping by and visiting with me…..Please come by again….Until next time…..

It’s THURSDAY!!!!

Like you all didn’t know what day of the week it is huh!!!
So…I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week!!! I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday!!!  You know what that means….a weekend of play for me!!
So…..I actually DID get to play a bit this week….had some ATC’s I needed to complete…..first of these I’ve done in a long time……they were so much fun to work on…once I got my idea in my brain!!! LOL  Of course you know I used my “kitty” Sable to cut out the digi image and the phrase…then used my Foil Master to foil the phrase “Spooktacular Halloween”…..LOL  Didn’t that just scare you!!! LOL












I absolutely LOVE cutting out digi images with my Lynx…..does such a fantastic job!!!!! Then I colored my image and added glossy accents to the hat and also to the ghost….but then I covered the ghost with glitter….just to give it a glittery affect……wouldn’t that be cool with glow in the dark glitter!!!
Nothing really special made up to create this ATC……I just used the font “Chiller” to type out the phrase and then printed it on the decorative paper with black laser toner and then cut out with my Lynx “Sable”…then ran through my Foil Master using some AWESOME purple foil that I purchased from Dawn over at Thyme Graphics….she has AMAZING foil!!!!!  Totally worth the wait to get it as it comes from the UK…..
Okie Dokie…that catches me up for now!!! Off to see what else I can play with….I’ve gotten the bug to start quilting so maybe that will be my next playtime!!!  I want to THANK YOU ALL for coming by to visit with me!!! I sincerely appreciate it….I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed Friday and weekend!!!!  I do hope you will come by again…..Until next time….

Happy Monday……..

I hope you all enjoyed a WONDERFUL Labor Day weekend……wasn’t it a GORGEOUS day today…nice and cool compared to the horrible humidity we’ve had for what seems like forever!!!!!
I had a quiet weekend and it was so nice…got to spend some AWESOME time snuggling on my cousin’s identical twin girls…they’re 2 months old now and SO OVER THE TOP precious and then attended my future granddaughter’s 9th birthday party….she had it at the local skating rink and had a blast!!!!  Then the rest of the time I spent in my ARTHaven creating some more pins……felt good to just create for a bit but it just makes the time zoom by!!……..I’m sure you are all getting tire of seeing roses from me…but you all know by now they are my favorite!!!  But I thought I would show you the pins I made……
I won’t bomard you with tons of pictures…..




I tried to make them each a bit different………I really like how they turned out…

So….it’s back to work tomorrow… ;(  BUMMER!!!   But I hope to be playing more this week……I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed week!!!!  I, as always…..want to THANK YOU all for stopping by to visit with me….I do hope you will come back by…..until next time….
