Framed Paper

Good morning
Today I want to show you a quick and easy way to make a frame out of cardstock using a file from  LisaJane.  Since I've become a member of the DT I am loving all the crafty projects I've come up with for her using her files.
The frame measures 6 x 6
I got this using some pretty heavy 
cardstock with my E-Craft
Isn't the detail marvelous?
I added scoretape to 3 sides of the frame
and adhered it the the same colored 
cardstock as my backing
Then I cut a piece of the same cardstock
at 5 x 5.  This will be your frame stand.  
I scored it point to point and added 
scoretape to half of the stand
then adhered it to the backside of the frame.
I colored the flowers and leaves with 
some colored pencils to give it just
the right amount of coloring.
Since I wanted to use this black and white
photo of my kids when they were little
I didn't want the coloring to be overpowering
If you are interested in purchasing this file 
you can head over to her shop and grab it up.

Snow Adorable

Good Morning and welcome to another card I made for LisaJane and the DT using file Lk00084 SnowBabies 1st Christmas. I am just so thrilled to be using these files because they are super easy to cut and put together. This card took me probably 20 minutes tops. I just love how this card turned out...I haven't made a long card in a long time but these two babies were just so adorable and I didn't want to lose any detail on them so here goes:

the card measures 7" x 4.25"

The SVG file is from LisaJane's Filekutz and since

I've become a
DT member here I can't get enough

of her files, they are so easy to cut and assemble.

I added the ends of cotton swabs for the pompoms

and then highlighted around her dress with my new

found love for the Gelly Roll glitter pen. Of course

I used Peachy Keen face stamps.

I cut all the pieces with my E-Craft and the tag also came

with my E-Craft software. I inked around the outside with blue,

and distressed the inside a bit with pink and used a

stamp from WinterPunnies. The snowflakes

were from my SCAL 3 Winter collection and cut with glitter paper.

Now I hope I've inspired you to make a Winter card because before you know it, you may need one ... it's getting chillier here everyday and I am not looking forward to that four letter word. (hehehehe)

Photo Holder with Harley Tear Bears

Good morning and Happy Labor Day,

Here is project I did with LisaJane's files for the DT are simply fabulous and very easy to put together. This week I chose the Tanny Harley Girl Tear Bear and the Harley Tear Bear and if you click on the links it will take you directly to the store where you can purchase them. They come in all the formats for every kind of cutting machine, but they also comes in a pdf file for you to hand cut if you do not own a cutting machine. Now, I have to say these were one of the EASIEST cuts for using the E-Craft and definitely easier to put together. I am so thrilled how well the project worked out, so here we go:

I started out with some over sized clothes pins that I

got at Michael's in the dollar bin and painted them black.

I added the Harley Girl Bear to the front of

the clothespin with some red tacky tape.

Here is a side view. Make sure you attache your

cut to the clothespin upside down if that makes

sense to you, because you want to use it as

photo holder or in my case...

A gift card holder.

I added the Harley Boy Bear to the front of

the clothespin with some red tacky tape also.

I even had some scraps of jean paper in my stash.

Isn't he just adorable also?

Don't they make an awesome pair?

I am giving these as gifts to one of my very good friends,

both her and her husband own Harleys and I think

these will be cherished forever...

I hope you will continue to come back and

see more projects using Filekutz shop.

Hugs, Brenda

Bodie Light

I can't believe it is September and I've done my first layout of our travels in 2011 - Talk about way, way behind!!!

When I saw this file created by LisaJane, I knew I had to skip ahead and scrap this photo of the Bodie Lighthouse.  Although I normally scrap in sequential order, this file just screamed, make an exception!!

BODIE LIGHT - May 26, 2011 - Outer Banks, North Carolina

JOURNALING:  General Information - Bodie Lighthouse observation trail

PHOTOS:  Images by Shetzers Photography

SUPPLIES USED:  Lighthouse cut file by LisaJane at FileKutz, BasicGrey Granola and Basics White patterned paper, Stickles Waterfall glitter, Stampabilities Black ink, Tim Holtz Distress ink in Faded Jeans, Doodlebug Design paper frills in Lily White, Diamond Glaze, Sand paper, mini pop dots, Recollections mini round gems, Recollections faux pearls, Autumn Leaves For the Record journaling stamp, Tsukineko Goose Bumps, Cricut Expression, Sure Cuts a Lot software, Bernard MT Condense font

TECHNIQUE TIP:  This wonderful file from LisaJane at Filekutz matched the photo of me in front of the Bodie lighthouse so well, that I knew that I just had to use it.  I wanted a fairly simple layout in terms of patterned paper but wanted to recreate the comotion that is always found near the seashore with breaking waves and lots of birds.  I decided to cut out several extra birds and waves from the cut file and re-create a seashore on this page.  A little glitter and diamond glaze to mimic the water and a little round gem to mimic the light in the lighthouse and I was all set.

Happy Scrapping,

Summer Crab Card

Today I have a cute summer-themed card to share. It features an adorable cutter file by FileKutz. For the background, I used blue and brown cardstock from my stash. On the blue paper, I used my Connect the Dots embossing folder. The brown paper was embossed with Spots & Dots and then I used a stipple brush to add some Walnut Distress Ink for depth. I also used my Scor-Pal on the blue cardstock to create a couple of dividing lines between the blue and brown paper. The face on the sun is a Peachy Keen stamp (Wide Eyed Kids set). The adorable little crab is a file from FileKutz by LisaJane (lk00045). I adhered the pincers with foam squares for dimension and added some googly eyes. I think he has to be the cutest crab I've ever seen! The sentiments on the card are from K Andrew Designs. For the final touch, I added a few rhinestones in between the two sentiments.
