You can add the child's name, or a few other Christmas embellies and your all set to go.

Make The Cut, Vinyl and Ceramic Tiles

Good Morning, I thought I would share some tiles that I have made using my my 2 prized possessions, Make the Cut program, and my cutter.
I found this free file SCAL forum. And added my own title. It is a very beautiful image, and usually has a different emotional  response from every person who receives it.
 We can not leave out our Mother's..This is actually a file I purchased from My Vinyl designs website, and I added the butterflies and the woman image. The butterflies are a converted clip art image, and the woman was a free file, although I do not remember where I found this, so if this is yours please let me know so I can the credit it deserves.
One more for our Father's...A;so purchased from My Vinyl Design. The element on the bottom I added from another free file.

A beautiful verse for the Couple celebrating their Anniversary, or getting married. Also from My Vinyl Designs And the heart border I made from several elements.. I just love there files, they cut so beautifully.

How about 1 for the Motorcycle lovers out there....The cycle was a free file again from the SCAL message boards, and the title I made.

This is a beautiful sentiment, that I live by everyday.
If you want any of the free files contact me...
This is just another fine example of the FAB program called Make The Cut, developed by Andy. Who is so amazing. You really need to check out the forum, the ladies over there are top notch, always willing to help and is a wonderful family. I could never say enough good about them. Check em out for yourself. HERE
If you would like to save some money on the Make the cut program, you will find a link on the right side bar, by clicking that you will get a big discount on the already low price. And the forum is there to help you every step of your creative journey. I love sharing all things good. Have a wonderful weekend.

A new and exciting wat to create, Make The Cut

Hello Crafty ones,  As some of you may know, I am a huge fan of Die cuts, I love the versatility of the Sizzix and Spellbinder dies, that coupled with the embossing folders and embossing plates. That gives virtually unlimited amount of things to make, and if your anything at all like me, I keep a notepad by the computer or I use a great free program called Evernote to record all of the ideas I have seen and want to try. I also was a huge fan of the Cricut, but since money and greed became the company motto I like thousands of others have given up on the Provo company and all there other outlets in the craft industry. I worked diligently to be among the top cricut crafters, and was on a few of the DT's.SO I was a huge promoter, then came the law suits and more greed and well I no longer support them or give them my hard earned money. With all of that going on I needed to find a way to continue my Scrapping business without using those products. And I did, I first off re-discovered my love for Sizzix, Spellbinders, and CherryLynn, and so happy for that. You do not need those expensive machines and cartridges to create beautiful projects. Really you do not need that company to create anything but a smaller balance in the pocket book. And I am going to show you how.
I will admit, I do get curious about the goings on over on the cricut message boards, and every once and again I do check it out. Only to find yet more people defending the crappy customer service, the incomlete or inadequate machine releases, and so many unhappy customers,lies, and more lies, promises that never come and all this with a hefty price tag and yet you can find tons of people ready and willing to console those un-happy customers and they continue supporting the non-sense over there. I am happy to be free of that ring. They biggest complaint was with a cricut and the MTC software you could download thousands of free files from the net and cut them with your machine, which is why I purchased minr, it opened up a whole new world for all of us. PC caight wind of that and instead of embracing the situation and working with the developers they decided to take them down, and have their version of files and designing. I have been in the cricut create room and compared to the MTC or SCAL program it truly does suck.IMO.
Anywho, I can hook you up with links on this info if you so wish to find out more, and want to look for a machine that truly supports all the software out there. Its funny how the makers of even Sizzix a die based company jumped on the correct band wagon and are giving up machines to work with the free files, and the amazing software. Thats truly a leader in business who cares about ustomers and wants to keep them with great products, not a company who wants to corner the market and keep everyone in the dark and penniless. In a few short months of not purchasing cricut items I was able to save enough to but my dream machine for almost $1.000.00 as well as put my dies back into use.
So I am going to be doing projects scrapping, stamping, altered arts, mixed media and even home decor using nothing but dies and free files found on the web.
A beautiful flourish and a silhouette which is from a TTF font, which is free to use and works amazingly well on the MTC software. Such beautiful cuts.

If you are looking for places that have free files be sure to click the correct tab on the top of the blog there are some wonderful resources there for free files, tutorials and a ton of other info.
Butterflies and birds we all love to use these.. Also free, for the bird log into Paulo's blog. the butterfly is from scrapmag.

 And what tag junkie, or art doll lover has enough torso tags???
Open your mind to the possibility of no limitations and huge cartridge prices, when the world of free is available to you. You can contact me for questions or help of any kind.

Inspirations we all have them, need them..

 In case you don't already know, this is my girl, Ms Kitty.....She is a Dunn Paint Overo, with the biggest heart possible...
 Kitty loves to be spoiled, pampered and if she could would live in my back pocket...

 This is Rookie, my 4year old lab, he is such a sweet dog, loves to cuddle in bed( all 90 pounds of him) and never leaves a persons side and is so gentle with the little grandkids.
 Meet Ryder, Rookies full brother, this guy is also a cuddler, but a typical 2 year old, into everything and mind focused on nothing, he makes me smile and really knows how to get ones attention. He is 2and I see no signs of maturity...
They are both hunting dogs, house dogs, and available for stud service.Although they would rather play, swim, and lick one to death. No one is safe from a face washing, and gentle nudge to give up a tummy rub.
These 2 are like 2 peas in a pod, they can't do anything seperate from the other, they really are buddies...
The dogs, you will hear me refer to as the boys, and my sons just shake their heads at smile.
Rookie, Ryder and MsKitty help me adjust and deal with the empty nest. They are my crafting buddies, riding buddies, my cuddle bugs, and well MsKitty is the same but she needs live outside. I am so very lucky to have such amazing son's, and fur babies in my life, what else would one need for inspiration. I have it all, and I hope you too can find peace, joy and inspiration in your daily doing's.
 Have a beautiful day everyone

Shaped Mini album with Make the Cut

 Good Morning Crafty ones, Can you say, Love, Love, Love my Make the Cut program!!! It is the most amazing program out there for those of you with desk top cutters,(Silhouette,Gazelle,KNK,Cougar, Lynx and Robo's) This started out as a free shape I found on line, and look at it now.
 Imported into the program, choose my chipboard and viola, with a bit of embellishing a finished mini album
There is nothing you can not do with this program and the proper cutter.
 A quick and easy gift-able keepsake. (is that a real word?? lol) it is today...
 I also used my other addiction/passion which are the Sizzix and spellbinders dies for some of the die cutsa few of the free files out there for the borders, and its starting to look a lot like christmas
 A few Cuttlebug embossing folders and prima flowers
 Lots of ribbons and glitter
 even tried a puffy sticker or two
 some cute back ground papers
 brads, eyelets, and gel pens

 more Sizzix and free iles that are available
 one last Santa by Sizzix, and you have a mini album....
I do not know why one would not take advantage of the zillion places for free files. The best thing to happen was for me to purchase that program and a new desk top cutter, the possibilities and lack of money I have spent since converting are amazing!
Hope you all have a great day

I love Tile and vinyl projects....

 I have always enjoyed all forms of crafting, and when the Vinyl came into the picture, well it was no different, jump in with both feet and run with it. Always being a person who loves inspirational stories, books and movies, it seemed a perfect fit. As you can put anything into words and add it to a mirror, a wall, a tile, a plate, well anything really.
There are a few sayings we Cowgirls live by, and will hear us saying them to one another quite often. But I have to say, this one is my all time favorite. And you do not need to be a cowgirl, it works for everyone. I ran across this saying on the internet with the cutting file attached, only thing I do not remember where or what blog it came from, so if this is your file, please let me know so the gals can go to your blog, and I can link up as well. Since cutting this, they have become very popular at the craft shows.
Now this tile and file is mine, and if anyone would like the file, just leave a comment with your email and i will send it directly. the file types are .svg and MTC. As well as thousands of other files. I am always willing to share.
Have a wonderful day crafty ones.

Gift giving is my favorite thing to do.

With Christmas upon our heels, I really get excited, excited to give the things I have made for my family and friends, neighbors, mailmen and so on. I have always loved the gifting process. SO I started thinking, the 12 days of christmas for each person on my list, once I sat down did my list and the math, holy moly, thats a lot of gifting even for a crafty one like myself. lol So that idea was quickly set aside with the hopes of starting early enough for next year.
I do enjoy taking a box of any shape or size and altering them. To fit the gift and person. And I do like how this ones turned out.
This heart shaped box is one of my favorites to make, and I do sell a lot of these. Make it for any Holiday or theme. Or just to store things in. I used my MTC program for all of the cut files. Love my MTC!!!! I never do a project without opening that bad boy up.

Good Morning Crafty Ones.

These are photos of my beautiful niece. She's off to college, and I have decided to make her a scrapbook, 1 photo from each school year.
This is her pre-school photo and was just too precious to not use...
I still want to add flowers and embellishments, but Briana likes it this way....
I am going to be at the expo craft show this weekend. Can't wait to see everyone again...Happy crafting
