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.

A Lazy Weekend.......

Hey Everyone......it's been a hot yucky kind of weekend......but I did play a bit in my ARTHaven.....nothing real exciting but thought I would share with you what I did do.....a couple of files to share for a short time as well.... ;)

I needed to make a card for a swap in my ARTHaven group.....and the theme was Lighthouses........I wanted to of course use my Black Cat..."Raven"........I had a little program that Make The Cut shared some time back....for making puzzles.......I bet alot of you might remember that.....well it's something I've not used alot of but thought it might be fun to play with it......especially now that we have the Print & Cut Technique with SCAL3.......It does such an amazing job with my "kitty"........so here's what I made....
                                                                                                       PDC 5x7 Puzzle 6-23-2012
PDC 5x7 Puzzle 6-23-2012
 
My PNC settings were off a wee bit when I credited this......I didn't feel like tweeking it at the time...but I've since done that now and it is absolutely spot on now!!!  SCAL3 is a WONDERFUL program!!!!
 
The next time I do this technique I will be using some of the Chipboard from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies Inc.....he has THE BEST Chipboard on the market hands down.....it cuts BEAUTIFUL with the cutters!!!! 
 
Envision this.....printing your design off......using some of Tyler's double sided adhesive sheets......that he sales at his store...All That Jazz Supplies Inc......then adhere the other side to chipboard.......adhere to the mat and cutting with your cutter........then you would have a puzzle that would hold up over time......you could put on a card or use as a quick fun gift......with a special message.....LOL....
 
Ok.....Then I decided to create a few new files to share for a period of time as well........an online friend of mine, Retta at Royal Inspirations... created a file she made of this thought design for a group we both belong to...and it was cute....but I had also already done up one of these and decided to tweek my files in my version and show a few ways in which I envision using it.......and thought I would share that with you here..
                                                                                               
                                                                                               PDC Postage Stamp Template 6-24-2012
PDC Postage Stamp Template 6-24-2012
 
In this file I tried to create "stamps" with a couple different ideas in mind.....a sheet of all the same stamp......a solid design stamp sheet, a sheet of an image blocked out......or you can do a different design in each "stamp".........I tried to think of every way someone "might" want to use it........
 
You notice the edges "seem" a bit ragged....but they're really not....once you fold along the "seams" you'll see the little pieces fall out and you're left with your "perforation"....you can use the sheet all together or tear apart.....however you want to use them......You could even print digis on them and then color however you wish...the possibilities are really endless.....
 
IF you decide this is a file you might like....please grab it now as it will only be available for download for about a week before I add to my collection for my next DVD...but one thing I want you to keep in mind when doing the print and cut technique.....(at least in SCAL3 anyway...) as I don't use MTC any longer...so I'm speaking only for SCAL3......but remember to leave the eye on the "stamp cut" design open...but turn the line color OFF so it doesn't "print" when you print off your image through the Print & Cut window.....but it needs to be that way so the alignment will come out correctly....I hope that makes sense......??????
 
Okie Dokie....then the last design I thought I would share with you is one I created about a month or so back.....I shared the tickets with you but not the file I created....but I thought since I was sharing the others above...I would share this one for a period of time.......so if you're interested grab it now

Okie Dokie Artichokie!!!! Guess that about catches me up for this weekend!!!!  I hope you might like some of these files.......I want, as always...to THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me!!!!  I would like to wish you all a WONDERFUL week!!! I do hope you'll come by and visit again......Until next time.........

A Vision Completed....

Hey Everyone.....Happy Sunday to you all.......I hope you've all been enjoying a WONDERFUL weekend!!! I'm excited!!!  I actually completed a project I gave you a sneek peak of last week and it turned out just as I had envisioned it!!!  It was ALOT of work...but ALOT ALOT of FUN!!!!!!





As there would be a gazillion individual pictures for me to list to you see everything completely I decided to put together a Slideshow so you can view the pictures that way.........IF you are interested in seeing them......Just click on the image of the box......
























I am SO pleased with the way this project turned out......I started it off with a generic Recipe Box that I purchased from Michael's and then covered with Gesso and went from there.....Once I had the box "distressed" and decorated to my liking I worked on the inside and all the cards.....lots of fun....using some of my flowers....and some flowers that were purchased from the big box stores as well as from some friends....(I'm really really trying to be good at using up supplies I've been hoarding.....and of COURSE I used my Black Cat Cutter "Raven"....she would have felt SO left out had I not let her claw at some paper!! ;) .......once the cards are all used the box could definately be repurposed as a keepsake......

So.....what do you think??????  I hope you love it as much as I do!!!!!

While creating this project I did work up a couple of cut files.........I know there are SO MANY people that are GIFTED at creating cut files now that there's not real excitement over yet another file...BUT....




Okie Dokie....I'm POOPED after all of this!!! LOL  I sure hope you enjoyed my little slideshow....and I pray you all have a very blessed week....THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me...I do so hope you will come by again.....

My Weekend Zoooommmmmeeedddd By.......

But BOY Did I have ALOT of fun....spent it in my ARTHaven ALL weekend.....felt SO wonderful to let my creative mojo start playing again!!!!!  I had 2 ATC swaps I'm involved in that I needed to work on......so I decided that was a good place to start........thought I would share with you what I created.......

Here's the first one I made.....





Nothing really fancy about this card....I had previously scanned some Graphics 45 papers I had purchased and decided to resize the page a bit so I can utilize the graphics in an ATC size...it was alot of fun!!!  I printed all the pieces with my Epson 1100 Workforce Wide Format Printer......I'm so impressed with the quality of this printer......I then used some Frosted Lace stickles on the egg....gives it a fun sparkle......and some corner fabric mounts and one rose corner mount.....used foam tape to raise the layers.......and of course I hit the edges with Versamagic Jumbo Java ink.......I think it turned out kinda cute.....

Then here's my next one.....I think this is my favorite......






This ATC was so fun to make!!! I had ALOT of fun with this one....first I decided I wanted to use some jar graphics I had....so I resized them to the size I wanted them......printed them off and cut out....I wanted to give them more a of a realistic look to them so I decided to add some wire for the stems of the roses.......so I took my craft knife and cut tiny slits on the "top" of the jar and just below the "rim" of the jar.....then threaded the wires through....to give the affect the wires were really inside the jar......but then what to do to cover the wire....well first I tried coating with a thick layer of Glossy Accents........so I did that to 2 of them...It was "ok" but I wasn't overly thrilled with the end result.....for one....it didn't stay mound up like I really wanted and second...it took WAY to long to dry!!! LOL.....I'm one who wants quick results....So I decided to take some Perfect Medium..coated the "jar" then used multiple layers of UTEE...of course heating in between layers.....while it was still "wet" I had to carefully hold the wire "under" the UTEE so when it set you couldn't feel the wires.......I REALLY REALLY am happy with the end results.....turned out just as I had envisioned....

Now the roses I used are NOT my PDC Roses....I had some little Prima roses on hand so thought I would just use those.....I'm "trying" to get better at using up what I have on hand.......I just snipped off the wire from the roses then glued with my glue gun over the top of the DCWV French Country Stack PS-005-00164 onto the card base.........I used one of my acrylic stamps and stamped the message with Timber Brown Stazon Ink....the background paper was some I had on hand....I believe it's from ......on the edges I used the ink distressing technique using 2 TH Distress Inkpads...I believe they were Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shudders........and then to finish off I added one of my PDC Butterflies that I've made.........I think it has a big impact.....What about you????? I know I sure had alot of fun making them....

Then I decided I wanted to start on a project that I KNOW is going to take me a bit of time to finish ........I'm really having a fun with this project and can't wit to show you the finished piece!!!!!  I can tell you that I will have a file or two to share with you once it's all completed.............so hope you'll come back to check....

But I also wanted to share with you that I used one of my Pen Tool holders for my Black Cat "Raven" and used a Copic .10 marker to draw out the words before I cut out the shapes.....LOVED the results......this is something I've not used as much as I should...but do plan to start doing more....just LOVE the look of it......So now I'm looking forward to getting home from work so I can work on my project more......I hope you like it when it's all done!!! ;)

Okie Dokie Artichokie!!! :)  Think that catches me up for the day....Feels SO good to do a post having creating something!!!!!  As always I want to THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me....Means WAY more then you know....I do hope you'll come by again and I would like to wish you all a VERY blessed day!!! Until next time.....

Time to move Forward.....

Hey everyone......I just wanted to take a moment to say HELLO......To THANK YOU all for your support and to let you know that I've chosen to close the post I made the other day so we can all move forward........Oh yeah....and to also let you all know that the person that "impersonated" themselves as me under a Google Profile as "Penny Duncan" have now taken themselves to other forums spreading their lies about me....And you know what...I don't care......not even wasting my time to read the comments "I'm "supposedly" making"....I KNOW the truth......and I refuse to give in or react to their childish games........The Lord knows the truth and THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS....So...just so you know....If anyone chooses to try and make a comment that is offensive or slighted and abusive to me.....the comments WILL BE REMOVED...I'm not playing your game...so you need to just move on to another blog.......or.....better yet...GET A LIFE!!!

So.....I plan on being creative this weekend and will hopefully have some ART to share on Sunday!!! I wish you all a very blessed Friday!!! And THANK YOU for stopping by....
