There's Snow Place Like Home!

Hi everyone ~ thanks for joining me for today's Miss Kate Cuttables post!

Before we get started have you grabbed your free file from the Miss Kate Cuttables store yet??  WHAT?!? You didn't know you could get a free file?  Oh goodness, Miss Kate Cuttables gives out a different free file EVERY day!  Grab it here before the day's up ~ FREEBIE.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For my post today I'm using a bundle file from the store called "There's Snow Place Like Home".

This is what the file looks like when you get it from the store ~


 Here's my 2-page layout using the file ~

 
Here is the left side of the layout ~ 
It's hard to tell in the photo (believe me, I tried), the trees are topped with glitter.  Snow is very glittery (is that even a word?) when the sun hits it.

Here is the right side of the layout ~
 Again, I used glitter on the tree tops and the snow on the house.  

I worked on my title last and I probably should've done it first because my blade was not cutting the detail of these letters real well.  So what happens when you need a new blade and can't get it in time to finish what you're working on?  You print & cut...Here's what I did for my title, and you can do this for any SVG file.  I googled the RGB (red,green,blue) codes that would match my paper that I was using elsewhere on my layout and changed the coloring of the words.  Once I had that done I placed them back where I wanted them on the white background and then printed the title in my printer and cut it out with my Cameo. 



I have found this to be a good technique to use when you have a file with a LOT of layers and you are putting it on a card, or anything for that matter - it gets VERY heavy and you can avoid that problem doing a print & cut. 

Have you ever wondered where you can find inspiration from Miss Kate Cuttables?  Well, here are some options for you ~

Nuttin's better than you!

Today I decided to do a throwback post for the Action Wobble Blog with a Fall card I made last year and never sent out.  When I saw it in my stash this year it made me laugh just as much as it did when I made it so I thought I would share it again.  

What do you do with cards that you've made and didn't need to send out right away?  I tend to tuck mine away for a "just in case" moment, but my stash seems to be getting a little large and I need to think of another way to store them.  Right now they are all together, should they be stored by occasion? Post your suggestions for me, I would really appreciate it.

  Here's my little squirrel card ~

Image SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables, sentiment from Scrappy Mom's stamps


This is what it looks like under your image, just a tiny little spring to make your cuts wiggle.

Would you like to have your own Action Wobbles?  Well, you can ... they can be purchased at the Royal Castle ShoppeWarning:  they are addictive!

I Love Fall with Miss Kate Cuttables

Hey y'all ~  thanks for joining me for today's Miss Kate Cuttables post!

Have you grabbed your free file from the Miss Kate Cuttables store yet??  If not, you can grab it here ~ FREEBIE.  

Also, don't forget to check the section called "Today's SVG's" for some awesome specials.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For today's project I used one of the Fall/Autumn images in the store called "I Love Fall ".

This is what the file looks like when you get it from the store ~
 


Here's a card I made with the file ~


Once you get these files from the store there are sooo many things you can do with them.  I actually took out one of the background layers so that I had a bigger white border around the whole thing.  As you can see I changed the color of the images and used twine for my banner instead of the white strip they have on the image.

Give Thanks with an Action Wobble

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by to check out my
Action Wobble project.  

Today's project is the first card I made for Fall and I have a lot more to go.  

For this project I made a VERY simple card that ANYONE can do.  Everything on this card is a sticker... shocked ya huh?  The base layer is plain green and I added the dots around with a white gel pen (my friend).  The sentiment is a sticker, and the whole wobbled piece in the center is one sticker.  Now you're probably asking yourself how I put a sticker on a wobble?  Here's the fun part .... I haven't found ANYTHING that can't go on a wobble.  

I really liked this sticker and I had high hopes of cutting it out with my Cameo but when that fell through I went to Plan B.  My Plan B was to put the sticker on regular white card stock and then cut it out from there, by hand.  Pretty simple huh? 


 This is what the wobble looks like under the image ~

Give Thanks with Miss Kate Cuttables

Hi there - thanks for stopping by to check out today's Miss Kate Cuttables post!

Have you grabbed your free file from the Miss Kate Cuttables store yet??  If not, you can grab it here ~ FREEBIE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For today's project I used two files from the store, which were "Thanksgiving Owl" and "Give Thanks".  

This is what the files look like when you get them from the store ~


Here's what I did with these files ~


For this project I took the Give Thanks title and deconstructed it to make separate images for my sentiment and my corner decoration.  I used the print/cut feature on my Cameo so that I could change some of the colors on my images. 

Hope you enjoyed my project and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Have a Spooky Day with an Action Wobble!

Hey there, thanks for joining me today for my Action Wobble project.  

I'm having such an awesome time making Halloween cards this year with all the cute images that have been coming into the Miss Kate Cuttables store. 

For today's project I used one of the newer images from Miss Kate Cuttables titled "Ghost".


I'm sorry but I don't have a pic of my wobble underneath.  I took a picture and then sealed the envelope to find later the picture wasn't that great.  I actually had to cut my wobble to fit under the ghost because he's so skinny. Cutting the wobbles is real easy and it doesn't affect the way they wobble.

Fang-Tastic with an Action Wobble

Hey there, thanks for joining me today for my Action Wobble project.  

I've been pretty busy around here making Halloween cards with all the awesome images I've been seeing around the web.  

For today's project I used one of the newer images from Miss Kate Cuttables.  He can be found in the $.50 area, and his file name is Vampire.  He comes with bats but since I had this bat paper I didn't cut them out. 



 Underneath my vampire is my Action Wobble.  As you can tell I cut my Action Wobble to fit underneath my image and it still left plenty to stick him on. 


Would you like to have your own Action Wobbles?  Well, you can ... they can be purchased at the Royal Castle Shoppe.
