Halloween treat bag video

Hey friends!

Halloween is just 2 short months away and I'm getting ready for it!

I saw a very cute treat bag in this month's Stampin Up demonstrator magazine and had to make them. These would be perfect for Halloween parties, class room treats, treats for family, friends, and co-workers. And they are super easy to put together! So easy that I made a video to prove it!

Alphabet Blocks Gift Box

Hi everyone, it's Joanna again as guest designer from ilove2cutpaper sharing with you my project this week.

This is the cutest of projects which you can use with your (Pazzles Inspiration) cutting machine or hand cut with scissors, it's that easy!

This would make the cutest baby christening gift box, don't you think?

If you pop over to my BLOG you will find the link to purchase these adorable Alphabet blocks.

I must say I have had the most wonderful trip down memory lane cutting these files, remembering all the sweet baby moments I had when my 3 children were born!

Incidentally, as you have the cut line for the box included in the Alphabet Block - Print and Cut set you could print out some of the digital papers also available in the collection.  I would lay the digital printed sheet on your cutting mat and just use the cut file (svg).....so many options.

For these Alphabet Blocks, I decided not to print and cut, although the file does include the cut file for you to use with your electronic cutting machine.  The boxes are so easy to cut with scissors so, on this occasion that's what I did.

Once downloaded onto my computer I selected the .png format and right clicked to print from my desktop,  (not even opening my Pazzles software).

When my printer settings were open (as above) I DE-SELECTED Fit picture to frame using Paper size A4. On the right hand side I selected the size of the print I wanted which meant I could change the size of the printed boxes.  I selected Full page photo for my gift box.

Here is my A4 printed page which has just come off the printer.

Once my box was printed out I cut around using scissors!

Then scored using my bone folder (very easy), then assembled my boxes.

Be sure to check out these ADORABLE Alphabet Block sets on my blog and get crafting!

Pinwheel card -- a new video tutorial

Hey friends!

It's Terri with another stamping project.

I've posted another video tutorial! This one shows how to make a pinwheel card using Stampin Up products.

My version was inspired by a similar card made by Justin over at www.jkcards.wordpress.com. I made the card below (with the yellow background), and loved it so much I used it as one of my Stampin Up convention swap cards back in July. And it was posted here on July 24 with instructions on how to make it.
Convention swap card

card made on the video
But then I started making video tutorials and decided this card was so super awesome I had to make a video tutorial for it. I changed the colors for the video making the pinwheel in Daffodil Delight yellow and the background Real Red. But the camera didn't pick up these vibrant colors, so I 'm a little sad....but happy about the video!

What do you think of my pinwheel card and the new video tutorial?

Check out my blog to see more stamping projects.

Stamping is fun!


PS--feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this card or stamping; I'd love to hear from you! terhare@hotmail.com

Another stamping project

Hi! It's Terri with another stamping project!

I made a video tutorial showing how to make a "fabulous" small box using Sizzix Box #2 die. The box is perfect for giving a little something-something to a friend or co-worker or as a party favor. I made several of these boxes. The first went to my hair hairdresser, the rest to my stamp club members with their monthly orders. They're easy to make and cute!

Please check out my blog www.stampinghare.blogspot.com for more inspiring stamping projects. My next video will be out tomorrow and is a tutorial for the pinwheel card I posted here on July 24th.

I'd love to be your Stampin Up demonstrator! Contact me today; my contact info is on my blog.

Following a sketch with my Pazzles Studio Pro software.

Hi, here I am again, Joanna as guest designer at Kricut Krazy, sharing a recent project with my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine.

Making this card using my Pazzles I really challenged myself, on two counts.  Firstly, I tried a recent sketch from Mojo Monday and secondly, I challenged myself to use papers and graphics with my Pazzles 2010 Studio Pro software.

I imported the sketch layout as a .jpeg into my Pazzles  software and then drew the elements so that I could cut them with my cutting machine at the desired size.

I then printed out some digital papers and laid them onto my cutting mat and cut each element as I required.

I chose my images and  I then print and cut the graphics out with my Pazzles Inspiration.

This is not my usual style of card but I love how it turned out.

The combination of the papers and graphics made it easier to follow the sketch that seemed to have zillions of layers!

I am pleased I had a go at the challenge!  
Motto for the day "Have a Go!"

Blog update - important changes and such

Hello everyone!

There have been quite a few changes in my crafting world lately that I want to share with you.  As you know, I've been purging my cricut stuff slowly. I'm down to about 50 cartridges and 1 machine left to sell.  Does this mean Kricut Krazy is no more?  Absolutely not.

I have decided to keep my Cricut Imagine.  Along with my Imagine cartridges and about a good dozen or so regular cartridges, and most likely a few new ones.  I will still be doing cricut projects about once a week or so - even if I have to have a guest designer for those.  That is undecided at this point.

However, I will still be crafting, finding deals to share with you, cool organization ideas to share with you and some other cool stuff so please stay with me as I go through these changes.

I sold my E2 to a sweet lady and used those funds for a Silhouette Cameo and am learning it a little more each day.  I also have a Pazzles that has been on the shelf for a coupla months but I'm going to a retreat in September (just a few weeks away) and am excited at what I will learn there.

There will still be blog candy now and then - as a matter of fact I have THREE fun Stamp sets from Peachy Keen they graciously donated and a few other things hiding to share with you.

My team of Krazies - Heather, Heather, Christie, Teri (our stamping up expert) & our resident Pazzles Expert from Down Under Joanna will still be very much a part of the team.  Christie is out sick and has to have emergency surgery this week but she'll be ok so no worries.  The Heathers will be back after school starts and Teri and Joanna will still be popping up.

Thank you guys! For 2 years of loyalty and friendship, comments and blog hops, fun and laughter.

The next day or three will be busy for my resident Web Mistress and Design Diva Sarah as she revamps the page. It will continue to be www.kricutkrazy.com but some things will look different

Thank you everyone! Look for some blog candy in the next few days!  Hugs and much love!

Hugs and Chirps!


A Hello Kitty card

Terri here with a quick and easy stamping project....and my first video.

I am on YouTube! I posted my first video!

A few weeks ago I saw a Hello Kitty card on Pinterest made by Diane Ouellette and couldn't wait to make it. Because it was so easy to put together I decided to make a video tutorial showing just how easy.

I made this Hello Kitty card for Tangee first.....
card I sent to Tangee

Then I made this video showing how it's made.....

I'd love to know what you think of the card and, of course, my very first video!!! Check out my blog www.stampinghare.blogspot.com for more cool projects.

Decorated bag using a sketch

Here I am again, Joanna Wright from ilove2cutpaper.blogspot.com, as guest designer at Kricut Krazy using my Pazzles Inspiration. 

This week I decided to decorate my 1st paper bag using some new cutting files available on my blog.

During the summer holidays my kids are taking priority in the entertainment stakes so crafting is limited!

So, I decided to use a sketch to help me.......

by Clean & Simple #149

As this was the 1st sketch that I have followed, I wanted to try and keep to it, as close as possible.
 I made my own jagged border in my Pazzles Studio Pro software using Tools, found in the Colour menu.....I was quite pleased how it turned out.

The decorative circle in the centre of the bag is from a cutting file set available in ai, dxf, eps, gsd, jpg, pdf and svg file formats available on my blog.

Please take a peep at my blog  for more details and photos and were you can see links to the cutting files I  have used http://ilove2cutpaper.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/recently-released-floral-stationery-cut.html

I know this is short and sweet, but I hope it was of interest to you!

Happy August 1st!

Holy Moly!

Where did the time go?  I can not believe that it's August 1st!  The holidays are coming up super fast!  When I was a kid I loved this time of year.  First we got to go school clothes and supplies shopping, then we started school (in September) then before you knew it we could trick or treat!  After that Thanksgiving with friends and family! I loved roller skating or riding my bike thru the neighborhood on Thanksgiving Morning - you could smell all the Turkey's and Hams cooking!  And then, suddenly.... it was Christmas Eve! Mom would let us open ONE present every single December 24th but she got to pick it.  It was always brand new PJ's.  As I started that tradition with my own children I asked Mom why she did that.  I laughed when she replied "I wanted Christmas morning photos without unmatched pj's or tears in the pj's, etc."  lol - simple enough.

Thanks so much to Terri, Christina, Heather &Heather as well as Joanna for helping out in July - what a great job they did! I will not cry if they decide to continue.  Outstanding job to all of them!

I am fixin to redo my craft room again - just organizing and rearranging - who knows, maybe some day I'll actually like it

Today is the day we all need to RUN to Close to my Heart and order your Cricut Artist Collection!  You won't regret it - in my opinion, this is by far the very very best Cricut Cartridge and a must have!

If you click the highlighted link above (or the one in the top right corner) it takes you to my store where you can order the Artist and any of your crafting needs.  I've been demoted to a Junior Consultant so I need all the help I can get LOL!

Hugs and happiness - will be back soon!

Hugs and Chirps!
