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 ETSY store....As I create new files they will be complied on a DVD in the future for those who prefer to combine that way.

Two Posts in 1 Weekend!!!

Hey Everyone...it's ME again!!!!!  How about that.....2 posts in one weekend....it's been SO long since I could say that!!!!  I wanted to work on the other tag idea I had pop in my head this week....and YES....LOL  I jotted down the rough sketch of it too when it appeared!!here's what I came up with........I really thing it turned out kinda cute....







On the buckle for the belt...I colored the black buckle with a glitter pen in silver then coated with Perfect Medium coated with embossing powder and heat embossed....did this 2 times......that way it gave it a bit of a metal buckle look....the "belt" I crumpled up so it would have a bit of a worn look to it.....

Check out the AWESOME detail of the pen drawing I did on these two pieces above....the "Merry Christmas" part I used my Copic .05 marker to write it........and on the "Santa's List" I used a Bic Pen.....but of these in the Pen Tool Holder that I got from That's Scrap Inc.........I absolutely LOVE this tool!!!!!

Something else I want you to notice here....the "paper" I used that Santa's List is written on.....I bet some of you recognize from our Paulo.......it's his file...I absolutely LOVE it......but what I want to bring to your attention is the AWESOME DETAIL that my Silver Bullet Professional Cutter did on cutting out the piece especially at the top.......I crumpled it  up for part of the affect I wanted......and it still looks pristine!!!



How about these papers.......aren't they AWESOME!!!  The Red "velvet" paper is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pretty!!! It's from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies Inc as well as the White "fuzzy" paper.....here's a link to the papers from his store.....
The black "Leather" paper is one of my favorites!!!!  I got that as well as the Feltweave and the Poptones paper from Pat over at The Paper Temptress ....her papers are so AWESOME!!!!! 

So......what do ya think of my "Santa Snowman" flip top tag????? Isn't he CUTE!!!!!  I like the way he turned out...can't you just see him hanging from Christmas presents???!!! ;)  LOL

Well....in case any of you enjoy him...

 

One last thing I would LOVE to share with you all......In case anyone is trying to do a Comparison on what might be the best cutter for THEIR NEEDS....I've added a a page to the top of my blog of an AMAZING Comparison Chart that has been compiled........there was ALOT OF LOVE put into this Comparison Chart...I was NOT the person that worked this up.........but one look at it and you can see how full of information it is!!!!!!
Ok...That does it for me for tonight.... I SO hope you enjoyed one of the pieces I've shared with you this weekend!!!!  I also hope you'll remember about the upcoming Fabric Blade Challenge that the members of the SWAT team for Sherri of That's Scrap Inc. are having starting September 1st....If you need a refresher of what I'm referring to...check out this blog post I did here.....
I hope you all enjoy the remainder of your evening!!! I want to THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me...and I pray you are all blessed with a WONDERFUL week ahead!!! I do so hope you'll stop by again....until then.....

Playing on a Saturday.....

Hey Everyone....can you believe it....I'm actually posting on a Saturday!!! LOL How about that!!!  I actually enjoyed a day in my ARTHaven and have been having some FUN!!!!  Thought I would share with you what I made.......So I was working the other day...(you know...the DAY JOBS that alot of us have....) and while going through some invoices and idea for a Tag Shawl popped in my head....LOL...Well I've FINALLY learned to quickly stop what I'm doing and sketch it out......and boy let me tell ya...it was a ROUGH sketch...

But at least it helped to continue to jog my pea brain on what I wanted to make.......so I came home and I got to play with one of my favorite programs...Inkscape.....such a fantastic little free program I tell you......creating a few new files for this vision as well as utilizing some leave files I've previously shared........here's the file design I came up with......

So.....Do you want to see my end result?????  I think it turned out kinda cute and almost as perfect as I had envisioned....I hope you like it......










I really had ALOT of fun making this....I cut out A BUNCH of the different leaves......using 2 different colored green papers........then I colored them with some of my homemade Shimmer Spritzers.........don't you just love the variegated colors of the leaves.......For the banner I used one of my Copic .05 markers and drew it out with my Pen Tool Holder from That's Scrap Inc. then cut out the shape......

So for the leaves I used a smooth green cardstock about 90# and a green bazzil paper about 110#.......cut with a Velocity of 800 and a Force of 100 & 110.......just whizzed right through all of these leaves in no time flat.....
Then I knew I wanted to make a few other items for this piece......a picket fence, a "helicoptor" (you know those things off the trees that as kids we referred to as helicoptors)....LOL....and I wanted a little acorn....so I decided to draw them up...........to cut them out I decided on using some paper from The Paper Temptress.....it's the Leather look.......I also used it for the trunk of the tree too....This paper is GORGEOUS....and it cuts BEAUTIFULLY with My Silver Bullet Professional Cutter.......had my Velocity on 800 and Force on 110..........I used this type paper for the tag base, the little seed pieces on the "helicoptors" the base of the acorn, the tree trunk and the picket fence.......Then I took the pieces of the picket fence and coated them with Perfect Medium and coated with embossing powder and heat embossed and repeated.....to give the picket fence a finished off look....
Then the other thing I wanted to show you was the edge detail on the tree top I drew.......you've GOT to check out just how WELL the Silver Bullet Professional Cutter cut out this tree......
I know I keep showing you lots of shots of the cuts from the Silver Bullet Professional Cutter but I can't stop myself....I just can't say enough what a FANTASTIC machine this cutter is.........
Ok......now I thought I would list other files I created for this file as well as some others I had made throughout the week.....maybe some of you might enjoy them???????

Happy Happy Tuesday....a Refresher on an Old File....

I hope you are all having a WONDERFUL week!!!  I had a request from someone on how to assemble a file I had created a couple of years ago...way back in March of 2010.....it was my PDC 3D High Heel Shoe.....perhaps some of you might remember it......



So I thought it would be easier just to work up a quick video tutorial on it as I prefer video tutorials to writing them out...LOL  Takes less time!! ;)  You'll have to forgive me!!!  So.....Here's the tutorial for anyone who might be interested.........

Since I worked up the video I thought I would again offer the file for anyone who might be interested in it....I HAVE modified it a bit so if you downloaded it a couple of years ago...you "might" prefer the modified file a bit better......please feel free to grab it if you would like......And I thought I would go ahead and show you a better shot of the 3 I worked up VERY quickly today.......they are really alot of FUN to make......




I have to say it's alot of fun going to back to older files and playing with them again....may have to do this more often!! ;)
Now...I just HAVE to share something else with you....something that has TOTALLY made my day and was honored  she chose my file to use in this.....
So I get an email today from a lady named Denise Hahn....she is a designer for Graphic 45!!!! Can you believe it.....SHE chose MY PDC Grungy Rose file to use in her creation.....I was BLOWN AWAY and so totally honored!!!!!

Another Sunday........and it was GORGEOUS!!!

Hey Everyone.......So...did you all have a WONDERFUL weekend?????  Oh I did.....it was a GORGEOUS GORGEOUS weekend.....very little to no humidity...temps in the middle 80's....it was so nice!!!  I'm SO ready for Fall....how about you?????

So....I did get to play a little this weekend.......and made a few new files......Just thought I would share with you a cute card I made for my niece....(well she's actually my hubby's niece....but that still makes her mine...right!!)... ;)  She turns 26 on Tuesday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cassie!!! She's a sweet sweet girl.......and she loves fun things.......so here's a cute card I made for her.....



Kinda fun...don't ya think????  I did alot of Print and Cut with my Silver Bullet Pro Cutter and SCAL3.....LOVE this combination!!!  The pink & Yellow Papers are from Paper Temptress.......I really love the thickness and feel of these papers.......The balloons I printed off and cut out using the PNC technique...then I coated them with Perfect Medium and coated with UTEE.......melted with my heat gun and repeated 3 times each for each balloon.......
So I had shared an Altered Digital Frame I had done several weeks ago and have in my store......Well I decided that would be a good gift for a 26 year old sweet girl....but I wanted to tweek it a bit....so I made some more of my PDC Grungy Roses and added them and some of my PDC Rose Leaves to the frame.....
I wasn't sure exactly how to wrap the box as I didn't have any wrapping paper on hand...LOL So I used the next best thing.....brown craft paper that you can get on a huge roll at Lowes.......it's like like the grocery sacks we used to be able to get.......added some twine and some of my PDC Roses........I thought it ended with a cute look....

Now I have one more FUN piece with you......I absolutely LOVE how this one turned out.....It was a friend who had requested a file for a project she was doing.....so I went to work on creating something she might like.......I used some of the Paper Tempress' GORGEOUS papers for this!!! I absolutely LOVE the ones I chose for this piece.......I'll show you the picture....then tell you which papers I used.....

Didn't this turn out AWESOME!!!!! I LOVE it......I made the Tag Shawl and then wanted to be able to display it quickly so took one of my Ranger Black Tags.....covered the embossing sleeve with Perfect Medium....ran through my Sizzix then took some Perfect Pearls in 3 or 4 different colors.......
But...now back to the Shawl.........Aren't these papers GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!!!! As  I said above....the papers are from Paper Temptress......these are the Kakki Krepe for the star fish and sand dollar and Vintage Silver Lustre for the shells.......Can you say LOOOOOVVVVEEEEE it!!!!  Such amazing quality papers....that cuts SO WELL with my Silver Bullet Professional Cutter!!!!  The "netting" you see on this is some netted ribbon....I think it's the perfect touch....don't you??????
Ok....now to the fun....If you're interested the files I created this weekend.....in creating the above pieces....perhaps some of you might enjoy them?????
