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 store....As I create new files they will be complied on a DVD in the future for those who prefer to combine that way.

How about a few new tutorials…..

Hey Everyone……WOWZERS our long weekend sure has went by fast!!!!  But I’ve enjoyed it……
I had shared last week some butterflies I had made……I have received such a HUGE response from them and several asking if I would be willing to work up a tutorial for them……..so that’s exactly what I’ve done…….IF you’re interested in learning exactly how I created these you are most welcome to view for yourself……..they’re easy to create and a perfect touch for your special project……..I’m also showing you the butterfly I created for this tutorial…..


Now as a reminder……if you haven’t previously downloaded this file and you are interested in it….you may find it here…



Ok……Now I knew I wanted to created another “animal” or should I say “insect” as well…..and thought I would go ahead and work up a tutorial on it too…..I have been thinking about this one for a bit and finally sat down Sunday morning designed and drew it and created it……..and I am quite happy with what I’ve come up with…….so here’s my new design…..



Yep…..DRAGONFLIES!!!!  Aren’t they CUTE!!!!  I’m loving them……and I’m excited to share with you how I created them if you’re interested…..you can check out the tutorial here…..
Now if you liked the tutorial and you like the dragonflies and would like to have the file to create some for yourself….you may find it here…..

 Now I thought I would share with you a little project I worked up Friday night for a baby shower I went to on Saturday……My cousin and his wife are having identical twin girls!!! How EXCITNG is that!!!!  We are all so thrilled for them……It was a fun shower with the exception that “mama” didn’t get to come as she is on strict bed rest and has been for the past 8 weeks…she has 25 more days to go before they induce her but the girls are doing very well!!!  So my cousin had to be the “mama” and the “papa” at the shower…It was so fun…..he’s like my brother and I wrote down all the gifts they received as he opened them…OMG…took us an hour and a half for all the gifts…I’ve never seen so many!!! LOL
Anyway…back to what I wanted to share…LOL…Sorry…didn’t mean to get off track!!! LOL  I thought I would share with you the Gift Bag Skirt I made for part of their presents……..



Aren’t they cute!!!   You’ll notice on the bags it’s listed as Baby A and Baby B!!! That’s because they won’t tell ANYONE what the girls’ names are going to be……You talk about meanies!!! LOL  We have a NOSEY family and this is killin’ us not to know!!!  But they sure are loving it!!! Those little twits!!! 
If you like the bag topper and you would like to have it…you can find it here…..
Whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! I did it!!! Got all that in!!! I just hope I haven’t lost you by the time you get to the end!!!   As always….THANK YOU for stopping by to visit with me….I really hope you’ve found something you might enjoy here…….I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed week…..I so hope you will come by again!!!!!  Until next time….

FINALLY Some ART time!!!!

Hey Everyone….I hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend!!!  It’s been a rainy cool weekend here but at least it allowed me some time to ART some!!!  The past couple of weeks have been a bit nerve racking as we lost our car to flood waters a couple weeks ago…but THANKFULLY the Lord provided and protected and we’ve been blessed to be able to get a different vehicle……So now that stress is gone my mojo decided to come back and visit!!!
I knew I wanted to make something Mixed Media related but just wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do…..so I fall back to what I love the most…..Roses!!!   I know I know…you’re probably SICK of them by now but not me!!!  They are my favorite flowers……..But I wanted to change up my flower file a bit so I made a grungy one….then incorporated them into my Mixed Media piece….wanna see how it turned out?????…….






Now keep in mind….before I show you…..this started out as a paper mache yucky cardboard colored box, vinyl, white cardstock and chipboard…….
The PDC 3D Birdcage I cut with the .022 chipboard I get from AllThatJazzSupplies.com and cut with my Lynx……then I colored with my Distress Stain daubers in the Walnut Stain then coated with perfect medium and coated with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder and heat set…….
The rose border you see around the box I cut with tan vinyl that I also got from AllThatJazzSupplies.com and used one of Paulo’s Rose borders and tweeked it a bit to make it double sided …once I cut it out I took some alcohol inks and mottled the vinyl a bit…….
The roses all started out as 110# white cardstock…….which I cut with my Lynx the PDC Grungy Rose file I’m sharing below and made stamens in the middle with crafter’s floss and some of my home made color fluff stuff……I also created some Vine files so I could add some vines to my project…..
For the bird in the birdcage I used one of Paulo’s Swirly Bird files and then accented with some Vintage Glass Glitter……the box I coated and painted using some crackle techniques…..added the feet and then also the flower trim around the vinyl border……
IF you’re interested in the files I made….I’m sharing them below…….



So….That’s my project I created for this weekend…….I hope you like it as much as I do…..Don’t forget…if you’ve not checked out Paulo’s blog….you DON’T want to miss it…he creates the most BEAUTIFUL files!!!!!!
And….if you’re needing chipboard in either .022 or .030 thickness….OR Vinyl or other supplies you can use with your cutting machine…you really want to check out Tyler’s store at AllThatJazzSupplies.com  his products really are AMAZING!!!!
