Sweet Baby

Sweet Baby

Here is a sweet little layout by Ronnie S, The photo is of her new Grandson, Chase who was born, 1-11-11. 

She used Sweet Baby file by FileKutz By LisaJane. The paper is from the DCWV kids stack, the border is from MS, the stickles are from Ranger, the inks used to ink edges are Momento inks, and Marvy Uchida Brush markers. The flowers are from Prima.

Pick of the Patch

Here is a 2-page layout I did of my son Alex. It uses elements from a page kit by FileKutz by LisaJane. The file is called Pickin Pumpkins "Make a Page Kit" (LK00170) and can be found HERE.

I choose to make my own title because we didn't actually pick the pumpkin, but the rest of the elements were just perfect to showcase these photos.


Announcing Sharon S as A New DT Member

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I want to announce and give Sharon S. and Big Warm Welcome to our Creative DT!!!

A little about Sharon:  You can also visit her blog HERE to see some of here beautiful work and get to know her a little better :)

(from Sharon)  
Ciao everyone, my name is Sharon and I have two beautiful grown daughters and an 8 yo son and a 5yo grandson who provide me constantly with chaos and laughter. I live in a log cabin by the water surrounded by woods in the beautiful state of Virginia where i can pretend to be miles away from civilization but in reality, I am close enough to multiple shopping centers in case the need to shop hits me (and it does often..HA). Other than my family, friends and shopping, I really love my coffee!! I will drink it throughout the day, every day and that will be the only bad habit I will admit to.


Hi everyone Eve Sheppard here with my very first post of my first layout for Filekutz

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work

Tools Of Prey

I wanted to share my first layout using one of LisaJane's files.  I love the svg cuts that she creates and when I saw this wonderful leaf background, I knew it had an eagle layout in it!!  Not only did I get this wonderful background, but I also now have some wonderful leaf and vine cutouts to use on another layout (stay tuned).  Notice the adorable little vines in the corners, they are the "leftovers" from the cut.  How great to be able to create multiple layouts from one cut file.

I hope all is going well for all of you, in the beginning's of the New Year! I am just having a blast remaking these Valentine's I created last year, for my children to give to there Grandma, same as the Dino: I just used cardstock, chalk markers and
chalk.. This one also can be a done a little 3D, using pop dot's under the different
pieces to get the look!! 

Also in the file there is a die cut of the Pig, so you can use him on the front of a card or on layouts.  You can also change him a little to make Birthday cards or invite's.. just remove his wings and add a different object to his hands, for example.. a present die cut, or balloons... ect.  You can get the file HERE or Click on the picture below..

Valentine's Day Dino Card

Wow! What a long month Dec, was for me.. And it finally coming to and end!! I have been busy designing and redesigning old files, so keep an eye out in the next month for loads of new files!!

Our Little Monkey


This awesome layout was done by Sharon S. using Our Little Monkey "Make a Page" SKU LK00196 design file by FileKutz By Lisa Jane.  Sharon is a very creative scrapper and shows of her work on her BLOG, it is very inspirational work.. so be sure to check it out.  She has used her Cricut, SCAL1 and chalk/ink to create her layout.  When Sharon emailed this Layout to me, I laughed so hard.. because I have about the same photo of my 3 year old in Our Rabbit's cage! So, as Sharon stated to me "Classic Photo"!! I love it and perfect for this cut file.  Thank you Sharon, for sharing it with me and others!

baby's 1st Christmas

I finally scrapped a layout of my son's first Christmas. At least I got it done before his second Christmas! LOL

To complete my layout, I used 3 fabulous cutter files from FileKutz by LisaJane. The bottom border is her Candy Cane Christmas Border (lk00027). I attached the bows in the center and folded them up to give a little dimension (at least until it goes in the scrapbook). The title is from Baby's 1st Christmas Bears (lk00103). I added Stickles to the Christmas lights to make them sparkle. The cute little guy in the center (besides my son) is from her Snowbabies First Christmas (lk00084). I added FlowerSoft to the hat to make it look fuzzy. I wrote his name using the pen tool and a file from Jan Bryson.

My 2nd Christmas Project

Here is my second, and final, Christmas project using dgital cutting files from Filekutz by LisaJane:

Cookies For Santa

Here is a layout using FileKutz By LisaJane's Files: Cookies for Santa and the flourish frame is from HOHO Santa's On The Go Page Kit.

Here is the recipe for the cookies:

White Chocolate, Cranberry, and Macadamia Nut Cookies

3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
½ cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries (about 6 ounces)
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (about 8 1/2 ounces)
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (about 4 1/2 ounces)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, soda and salt and set aside. Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Add both sugars and beat until blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat just until blended. Using spatula, stir in cranberries, white chocolate chips, and nuts.

Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon drop circular mounds of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet and lightly press down (mine tended to be about 1½ tablespoons.) Bake cookies until just golden, about 15 minutes or a little more. These can be made ahead and frozen for a couple weeks. Best eaten within a couple days– store airtight at room temperature.


Santa Bookmark

Here is my first christmas gift project using a Christmas digital cutting files from Filekutz by LisaJane:

I thought that I would use the Santa Face (LK000114) cutting file to make a Christmas tag. I added some Ice Stickles to give his cap some texture.

Stamps: SU - Bitty Backgrounds, Papertrey Ink - Mixed Messages (Sentiment)
Paper: GP White, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Old Olive
Ink: Always Artichoke, Archival Jet Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug, PTI Tag Sale #1 Die, Eyelet, Cricut, Filekutz by LisaJane - Santa's Face (LK000114)

Santa's Reindeer Rudolph

I like to send out handmade Christmas cards every year. It takes quite a bit of time and Christmas is only about 2 months away. So it is time I get to work! Here is one of the cards I made for this holiday season. The glittery green cardstock was embossed with my Cuttlebug, using the Baubles & Bows embossing folder. I sanded the embossed areas and then colored the strings and bows with a gold pen. I also inked the edges of the green and red paper with a gold inkpad. The adorable little reindeer (lk00113) came from FileKutz by LisaJane, which you can find HERE. The file was super quick to piece together. I added some Paper Glaze to his hooves to make them shiny and some Ruby Slippers Stickles to his nose to make it sparkle. Rudolph's nose needs to shine, right? I think he turned out really cute.

I inked it using Distress ink{Old Paper} and Versa Magic Chalk Ink.
Oh, Just wanted to say I Love Your Book, It is soooo cute.

Halloween Skeleton Card

This Halloween card features 2 files from FileKutz by LisaJane. On the front, I have used the individual skeleton from the Skeleton Border 12 inch file (lk00072), which you can find HERE. I found the background paper in my stash and just added a spider die cut. The Trick or Treat greeting was cut from vinyl. On the inside, I have used Halloween Suckers (lk00184) attached to some green grosgrain ribbon. You can find this file HERE. Again the sentiment is cut from vinyl.

Sneak Peak of My Halloween Book

Using my Bind-It-All and FileKutz By LisaJane Files
Well October is almost here!! And you all know how much I love Halloween.. I have already started my 2010 Halloween Book for my boys..  A few weeks ago I was really sick and my hubby went out and bought me a Bind-It-All... And I just love it.. So I wanted to show off some of my book, I wanted to have the pictures in My newsletter, but then my BIL was hit a killed by a car.. and I am still dealing with that, but I am trying to get back into scrapbooking to keep my mind off of Life Stressor's so I hope all of you like what I came up with so far.. I will show it completed with title's and pictures after Halloween!! So here are some of the pages and close-ups. You can find almost all of these design's I used in the VDBC store, and the other's will be added with in the next few weeks. I will also give the recipe of each 2 page layout when it is completed, so check back the 1st week of Nov to see the end results!! 

The last pic is the front of the book, I am not done with it yet, but I wanted you to see the shape I designed and cut from my cutter using chipboard.. Now this was my 1st time using the Bind-It-All tool and I didn't glue my pattern paper to the chipboard before I cut it, so I messed up on the holing, it all worked out and i just covered my mistakes, but next time I will glue my pattern paper to the chipboard before I cut, so that is my tip for this project. Hope it inspires you!!

Also I will be holding a Challenge at VDBC for the October Anniversary Party starting on the 15th: "Show me what and how you use your Fav Crafting Tool" 1st, 2nd and 3rd Prizes... 10 files, 5 files and 1 file..

Beware of Black Cats

Here is a cool Halloween project using the new files from Filekutz by LisaJane that were included in the September Grab Bag over at Visual Design by Chris:

This file features several Halloween borders to use on your cards or scrapbook pages. I cut out a row of black cats and trimmed it down to fit my card. What a nice addition to a simple and quick Halloween card!

Trick or Treat Card

Here is a Halloween card I made using LisaJane's Halloween Spider Web Side Border (lk00183), which you can find HERE. I used several shades of orange ink to color the background. The spider webs were cut from grey cardstock and then glitter glue was applied. The Tick or Treat words were cut from Black Magic Core'dinations cardstock and then embossed and sanded (font used was Baby Kruffy).

Playin In The Rain

Here is a new project using digital cutting files from Filekutz by LisaJane for her monthly newsletter:

In this project, I used Circle Borders 1 (LK00145) to make the two side borders. I added the flowers where the two borders intersected to cover it up.

Stamps: Whimsie Doodles - Puddle Jumper
Paper: PTI White, Gina K White, Brilliant Blue, Basic Black, SU Summer Picnic DP
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Cricut, Filekutz by LisaJane - Circle Borders 1 (LK00145)

Starfish Variations!

When I saw the starfish background file I knew that I wanted to have it and use it.
It's such a great file and cuts out so well. 
I had to use it again on a card. And to show you how versatile the file is I split up the cutted file into smaller pieces.

The starfish are made with the cuttingfile from Filekutz by LisaJane
and can be found here Starfish lk 000137.

I choose to color this pretty new image Eva the Glam by Michelle Perkett Studio.
It's the first time that I colored a mermaid. And I have to say that is was a lot of fun.

I used copics to color her and the little dots are made with Liquid Pearls. 
The flowers are from a haircomb that broke and I saved.
The embossed paper is a technique that I made and described HERE.

I hope to meet see your cards at the challengeblog.
Thanks for coming by and leaving me a lovely comment!

Life's A Beach

I used this wonderful summer cuttingfile on this card.

You can find that file lk00137  HERE!

Star Fish Background Jumble Mesh

This great cuttingfile from FileKutz by LisaJane with these starfish as a background. I cut them out and used a part of them as a background!

The paper I used is so lovely that I wanted to keep the card simple. I found this lovely paper  from Imaginisce at my favorite (online)shop to buy: Creabest!
Here is what I made with all these items!

Thanks for looking and leaving me a lovely comment!

Who's Looking

Here is a layout I did of my son in his halloween costume last year,  I used my new file Halloween Flourish Frame w/ eyeballs HERE I just removed the center, and I also used the ribbon flower I created using my Prima Flower Collection HERE!!
I distressed the edges with a distress tool, chalked the edges with Pebbles Chalk, used glitter glue on the Title and on the Eyeballs. And I used black frourish to make a frame around my picture.

Anniversary Card

Here is an anniversary card I made for my parents' upcoming 38th wedding anniversary. It uses pieces from LisaJane's In the Spirit file, recently given away in her newsletter. If you haven't signed up for the newsletter yet, you can do so here.

If you missed out on it, I'm sure it will be in the store soon. I used up some paper from by scrap pile to cut out most of the card. The Happy Anniversary sentiment is cut from white vinyl and I then applied green alcohol ink to it. I also added some yellow brads to the centers of the flowers.

3D Butterfly Card

Here is a card I made using one of LisaJane's butterflies from her 3D Layered Butterfly Collection Set (lk00101).

The body of the butterfly has been covered with brown flocking. I used some paper I found at Big Lots, Stampin' Up ribbon, Prima flowers with a rhinestone sticker for the center.

4th of July Page Kit

This scrapbook layout uses the Fourth of July Page Kit (lk00140) and 4th of July Bear (lk00138) from FileKutz by LisaJane.

The title was cut from white-core cardstock, embossed and then sanded. The firecracker flames, the stars on the corner accents, the handle of the wand and the crown all have glitter glue.

I added some pen stitching with a silver gel pen around the red star mat. These files were just perfect to scrap this holiday.
