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.

It’s been a while……another Sunday rolls around…

Hey Everyone….I hope you’ve all enjoyed a very wonderful weekend!!!!  I’ve finally been able to create just a wee bit and it felt good again…..I  had a migraine all day yesterday so I didn’t accomplish anything…but I really think I’m beginning to realize when I sit idle it allows the migraine’s to get worse…..I started off with one this morning and once I made it a point to get up and get creative….along with my Excedrine Migraine mine is now GONE!!! Thank goodness!!!!  So I was able to get 2 pieces of jewelry created that I thought I would share with you…….of course they were inspired by my grungy roses….but I’ve had these ideas swirling around in my head for a couple of weeks now…and finally decided to put them together…..





This first piece is a necklace….and I love how this turned out….it’s a chunky piece…as the center rose is approximately 2”  but it really looks nice when you have it on….I created everything from scratch……and used magnets for the closure…to make it easy for someone to put on and take off…..

And then I created the other item I had been thinking about……It’s a broach…and I LOVE how this turned out…better then I had envisioned and it’s a substantial piece as well……the center rose on this piece is approximately 1 1/2”…..and it would look awesome with a suit or jeans and a denim shirt…don’t you think????





I had a lot of fun making these!!!!!  I hope you like them…..Then I actually worked on more Shaplies…..I know…it’s been awhile….and it really felt good creating files again……so if you might be interested in them you can see them below……


 






Shewwwwwwwwwwwwwww…..Are you tired yet???? LOL  I am….So..I really really REALLY Hope you’ve found some items you might enjoy…..
OH YEAH!!!  I had received SEVERAL comments from some sharing with me that even though they were signed up to receive my posts via email…they weren’t receiving them….I’m not quite sure what happened but I decided to redo the Subscribe Feed……and reposted it on the top right column of my blog….so if you’re interested…might I suggest you try to resubscribe once again and let’s see if it will work….I’m a bit puzzled as to what happened cause I had not changed anything…but I THANK YOU for letting me know!!!
Ok…off I go…..to create and play some more…I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed week!!! As always..THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by to visit with me I do hope you will stop by again…until next time…

I'm still around....

Hey Everyone....I hope you are all doing wonderful today!!!! I apologize for being MIA as of late...if anyone has missed me.......I have been in a bit of a slump since I got all the "must complete" projects done......and took a short repreave......now I'm beginning to miss paper!!! ;)  BUT....I wanted to share something with you that spoke to my heart this morning.......and I thought perhaps there was someone out there who could use this message this morning......

On my drive into work this morning (as every morning) I listen to my Ipod/Iphone through my speakers in the truck.......and this song played....by a Christian singer named Carmen.....I LOVE hearing his voice....and he has a way of sharing a story........

I know so many as of late have lost someone they loved and is having to learn to adjust to life without them on our earth as we know it...even though we know they're in our hearts and still connected to our Spirits we still wish their flesh was with us....Well when this song played this morning I felt the Lord share with me that though we miss them being here.....They ARE HAPPY and at peace being in Heaven with our Lord and the vision they behold each and every moment....what a comfort that was to my spirit...even though I know this...it's always wonderful to have a reminder.......


So...if you feel led.....why don't you go take a listen to this GORGEOUS and powerful song by Carmen......I absolutely LOVE this song and remember it always...I hope it might touch your heart!!!

Off I go back to work...I just felt led to share this so I am.....I'll be back soon sharing more files and projects...I do so hope you will come by again...Until then I wish you all a VERY VERY BLESSED day!!!!

Row Row Row your Boat…..

Cheesy title huh!!! LOL  Have to excuse me…   It’s been a few days since my last post!!! I’ve been having the BIGGEST brain fog on a Birthday card I needed to create for an order I had received……it’s for a fella…..doesn’t like frills..(of course…LOL duhhhh)……likes more simplistic things…..but loves the beach, gaming, photography, cooking, music, choir and the list goes on and on……TOO MANY CHOICES!!   But then it FINALLY hit me……and I ran with the idea that came to mind……and created a few new files in the process to accomplish my vision…….And must say….I’m quite happy with the results….wanna see?????
YES YES….I MUST put you through the pain and make you look!!!!









Not sure if you can see the “sand” and the “water” very well on this card….but for the “sand” I used some stuff I had purchased a couple of years ago at one of the CKC Conventions I went to….it’s called Bahama Beach from a company called MuddPuddles.net It’s pretty cool stuff and it does look like sand…don’t you think???  for the “water” I had printed off the image with my Laser Color Printer…..then took some Glossy Accents and covered ALL of the water area…..spread it out with my fingers and allowed to dry……doesn’t the water look wet???? I LOVE how it turned out…….

Notice the dock, the chairs and the boat oars and bottom……doesn’t it look like wood????? Well…..it IS!!!!  I will admit….it was a bugger to work with as it kept splitting off the page because I did such small cuts……but it really did cut beautifully with my Black Cat Lynx “Sable”…….I had the Velocity set to 50 with my 60 degree Plus blade and a force of 120……..

All the wording on this card I printed out with my Laser printer on mono black print then foiled with a Bronze foil and my Foil Master that I purchased from Sherri at That’sScrapInc.com ….the foil I purchased from Dawn at ThymeGraphics……..they have some AMAZING products!!!!
Something else I used on this project that I hadn’t really worked with before is some of the Distress Stains from Tim Holtz…..now I’ve always LOVED his distress inkpads……and reinkers……but hadn’t yet used the bottled stains….Well…I LOVE them…..so easy to use I will be using more of them in the future….

So this was the creation I came up with….I think it turned out masculine looking……and hope he will like it as well as the person who ordered it from me…So…..wonder if any of you would be interested in any of the files????? Well if you would I’m sharing them here……






Okie Dokie…….I “think” that catches me up for tonight…..I sure hope you enjoyed your visit???? And I do sincerely hope you will come by again….As always…THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by to visit with me!!!! I pray you are all having a very blessed week!!!! Until next time….
