My Little Picasso...

Hello everyone! DT member Jana stopping in this afternoon to share a one page 12 x 12 layout I've created using the super adorable "Artsy Fox" file.  I have been trying to create some layouts to have ready for my son as he will be starting Pre-School in about another two weeks or so. I know he will be coming home with plenty of arts and crafts projects, and now I have the perfect layout to put some pics of my favorites.

I started off by uploading the Artsy Fox file to my Cricut Design Space and resized all of the images accordingly.  Once I was happy with the fox pieces, I then resized the "paper" of the easel to measure 3 x 5 and created my three photo mats.  I also resized the paint border and splotches and attached them to the photo mats leaving enough room to be able to slip some pictures under them, so it may look like the paint is splattered slightly over the picture. I also added my title, "My Little Picasso" to the easel by using the writing feature of my Cricut Explore.

Below is a complete list of products and supplies used to create this layout:

KaDoodle Bug Designs - Artsy Fox File

Patterned Paper: DCWV Limited Edition - The Homeroom Stack

Bazzill Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Gathered Twigs, Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany, Blueprint Sketch, Scattered Straw, Hickory Smoke

Art Glitter Glue

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks - Shimmer Shades

Title (My Little Picasso) was written using the "Baby Steps" font and "Geode" Cricut Pen

It's A Girl Thing Side Stepper Card

Happy Tuesday all!!

Hope everyone lucky enough to be in the US enjoyed the Eclipse!

Today I'm bringing you a Side Stepper card made using the Charmkin Cuties - It's A Girl Thing cutting file set.

I made the card for my niece's birthday, she's is going to absolutely adore it as it is so cute and girly - just like her!!

I stepped out of my comfort zone this week as I'm usually a sucker for sticking to a basic square card, but the amount of images in this set that I loved required a special kind of card - that's where the side stepper came in!

I absolutely love this file set!!

Enjoy the rest of your week guys!

PTC Cutie KaToodles Football Bear

As school resumes for our school aged children,
Football season begins.
Whether your student is in Jr. High School, High School, or college,
touchdowns and other football plays are on the schedule.

Kadoodle Bug Designs has a few cute files to
help preserve those memories.

to create a scrapbook page for football.

PTC means Print Then Cut.
(Note: it is also available as a cut file and digi stamp)
If your machine will do that and you have a good colored printer, the machine will do the cutting. Mine isn't set up to do that.
I had the file printed and then I hand cut it and put it together.
Once it is assembled, it has many layers to add that make it look 3D.

I used the football page from the DCWV High School Paper pack 
for the background paper.

Another file that Kadoodle Bug Designs has that would go very good with this theme is Simple Life: Football.

Hope your teams win and you have many photos to save.

Kitty Cat Scrapbook Page

Hey Kadoodlers,

Good Evening, I hope you had a great week!! I've been working on some scrapbook pages the last few days, so I'm excited to show you one of the pages I've been working on. Last September, I got a kitten and he is full of personality!! He doesn't like to drink from the water bowl,  he only drinks from the faucet. He's so playful and he makes the cutest little chirping noises. He has these plastic apple ornaments that he plays with and carries around by the strings. It's so cute watching him carry them around. So I figured I'd make a scrapbook page to put some pictures of him in. 

 To create this layout, I used a combination of files 

I wanted the layout to boyish since my cat Bruno is a Boy. So I used shades of black, green, and Blue. I put some fish, yarn, and pawprints to give it the cat touch. To create the cat that is laying across the top of the photo mat I meshed two files together. I just used the Got Candy Cat and just added the leg from the dog in the Thank you Birthday Dogs file. I wanted another cat, so I added the Cutie Katoodles Black Cat at the top. To finish off the layout, I added a paw print to the bottom of the page. I'm going to use it journal but I could also use it to cut a picture in that shape.

I hope you enjoyed this kitty layout. Come back next week for another Scrapbook page.  : )

Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:

Paper Piecing.
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Thank You Birthday DogsCutie Katoodles Black Cat, & Got Candy Cat.
