Off to College

Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to pop on here, since I've been so quiet lately.  We're getting our little girl ready to head to college tomorrow.  It's been a long month with coordinating her tuition payments, schedule, books, and personal belongings for her dorm room.   But one of the things what was on my list was to upgrade the decal on her car.  Her car came with the car lot name decal on the hatch.  And for the longest time, I wanted to replace it with what she has named her car.  

I LOVE how it turned out. 

I cut two layers (a grey shadow and a teal base) out with my Cricut Explore in a system font I liked.  It was easy peasy.  

Just a few more details to wrap up today, and then off to College in the AM.

Miss Kate's August Challenge

It's time for a new challenge over on the Miss Kate's Facebook Group.

August's Challenge is "Baby."

The requirements for the challenge is to follow the theme of the month and use a Miss Kate Cuttables' file in your creation, including any/all freebies you have.

The challenge will run from the 2nd Tuesday through the 4th Tuesday of each month.  Winners will be announced, in the group, Friday of challenge end week.

I created a card using Miss Kate's Boy & Girl Owl file.

This little owl was so fun to work with.  He is so sweet.  

I cut the layers out of My Favorite Things card stock and my Cricut Explore.  

I highlighted a few layers with a Spectrum Noir Glitter brush.  

I popped him up on foam tape on a Miss Kate's Nestled Scallop Square and shadow.  

I added some texture by running the square through an embossing folder.  

The 'ribbon' is from Miss Kate's Scrap Your Heart Out file.  

The sentiment from the Cardz TV Heavenly stamp set.  

I stamped Congratulations from Cardz TV Bigger Everyday Sayings stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Happy Birthday with Miss Kate Cuttables

Happy Thursday!

It's my day to post over at Miss Kate Cuttables' Blog.  
 (You can get today's freebie at the store HERE.) 

And now my creation:

I created a masculine birthday card using Miss Kate's Metal Frame file.  I cut the file from MFT card stock with my Cricut Explore.  

I foiled the stars with Zig two way glue and deco foil.  

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Ink, and highlighted it with a clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen.

To finish the inside, I used the negative from the die cut to foil a star on the bottom right corner.  

The cutting file I used can be found HERE on the Miss Kate Cuttables site.
