Hello everyone! Today I have a project to share with you that I created for the Miss Kate Cuttables Blog. I just got a new Cricut Explore Air during the launch on HSN. I was really excited when it arrived so I decided to use it to create my project for Miss Kate. Since I’m really new to all of the workings of this awesome machine I wanted to keep my project simple so I created my first Easter card. Here is the file that I used for my project.
And here is the card that I created.
Instead of using all of the cuts from the eggs I wanted to cut them with some design paper. So I just used the back layer.
I also wanted my Easter eggs to come out of the basket so I created little photo mats out of them.
I used lots of dimension to the front part of the basket. I stamped my sentiment on some kraft paper and punched it out with an oval punch and layered it on a scalloped oval punch. I added a couple of homemade enamel dots as well.
I added some design paper to the inside of the card to finish it off and added some more homemade enamel dots.
That’s my card. I hope you like it. I’m still learning about my new Cricut Explore Air. It’s a pretty amazing machine! Have a great week!
My card measures 6×6. I used some kraft cardstock for the background of the card. I ran the cardstock through an embossing folder to give it some texture. I then layered the Miss Kate Wild About You title. I inked around the edges with walnut stain distress ink to help it stand out from the background. I then layered on the cute little peeking tiger at the bottom and tied a fun bow with some gingham ribbon.
I really like how it turned out.
Make sure you check out the Miss Kate blog for more inspiration! Have a great week!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share my first project for the Miss Kate blog for 2015. I decided to create a fun shaped card using a super cute file called Puppy Love.
All of the elements in this file are adorable! I decided to use the fire hydrant as the base for my shaped card.
I added the fun little paw prints as well as the doggy bone to the front of my card with some dimensional adhesive.
I stamped the sentiment “special delivery” from the CardzTV stamp set “Snail Mail”. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen and inked around all of the edges with walnut stain distress ink from Tim Holtz.
That’s my card! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
Hi everyone! Today I want to share a card I created for the Miss Kate blog. For my card I used two different files. I used the poinsettia file as well as the joy and noel title file.
Here is a side view of the card.
I really like how it turned out. I cut the poinsettia out three times so I could layer it together for a more dimensional look. I also used my clear wink of stella pen on the center of the flower as well as the tips of the petals.
I liked it so much I created another one. You can never have too many Christmas cards on hand right?
Here’s a side view of this version.
That’s my Christmas card. Thanks for looking! Have a great week!

Hi everyone! Today is my day to post over on the Miss Kate blog. Today I have a cute pull out tag card to share with you. Here’s the file I used to create my project.
Isn’t he cute? There is also a girl version of this file. Definitely going to have to make her next!
I wanted to use the file to create a pull out tag card.
Here’s the card with the tag pulled out.
I used the Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath stamp set to stamp the sentiment. I also used the Stampin Up stamp set Merry Everything with the coordinating punch to create the little tag for the front of the present.
I thought this image would look really cute with a pullout tag coming from the top of the barrel. So here’s what I created.
And here is the pullout tag.
This project was really easy to create. I just cut another basket base for the back of the card. I embossed the first basket base using the Cuttlebug fabric swatch embossing folder. Then I inked over the embossing with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Then I trimmed off the top portion and add the next layer. I did add some small eyelets just to give it some more texture to the trim pieces.
Then I glued this onto the other basket base just around the edges so I could create a tag and slip it into the basket. The leaves from the cut file were added to the top of the tag. I did cut a couple of extra leaves to add to the front of the basket.
I stamped my title label on the front of the basket and then stamped my sentiment on the tag. I also added some ivory yardstick to the back of my tag so you could sign your tag card.
That’s my project! Have a great week!
