this+that: lucky . . . break it down

How To Use The Kit You can use this kit with many-a digital craft cutters, such as Silhouette, Pazzles and Cricut. Anything that can use an SVG/DXF/AIv8 file. If you are using Cricut, you'll need to use something like old versions of Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) or Make The Cut (MTC). These programs allow you to use SVG files with your Cricut. And if you don't have a digital craft cutter? No worries. You can create it digitally! THIS POST has some great information on how to do that. Distribution and Use of the File I've had to make some alternate file saving [...]

this+that: lucky

Are ya feelin' lucky? Well, are ya?  Okay. I guess I'm in touch with my inner Clint Eastwood right now. A few monster days of sitting in my chair for hours on end can craze up a gal from time to time. ;) But the This & That: Lucky kit is finally done! Yahoo! This kit has the flavor of St. Patrick's and the luck of the Irish, but it's more Lucky/Life is Good/Spring so that it's a bit more universal-ish--a nice, somewhat holiday, home dec item.   Here's a few tips about the kit: Letter with weedy flower. (I [...]

did you ever feel like…

. . . your week was one big road sign? With the Monday holiday and some other unexpected things, my work week hit one of these:     Therefore, with the new Lucky kit because I still have some of this going on today. This could easily be applied to my office as it looks like a bomb went off right now. There's nowhere that's clean! Piles upon piles...   Needless to say, I'm feeling like I'm stuck behind some yahoo doin' 25 in a 35. (That happens a lot on a particular road here--drives me nuts!) Shootin' for it [...]

So the cat goes on a tear through the house. Gets all spastic and playful and such running up and down stairs from room to room.Often runs into the downstairs bathroom onto the toilet--with the lid shut, of course.One day? Dan didn't shut the lid.One day? I heard *splash*!One wet cat.Laughed my behinder off.It's the little things that can really make your day. :)

So today, not only do I have a Friday Freebie for ya, but I have a sneak peek and preorder for next month's kit! Let's start with the [...]

complete happiness

  Just the cover alone makes you want to buy this album. Previewing it on iTunes will seal the deal for sure! How can you go wrong with a song like I Do Adore and lyrics like this: Everything you do it sends me Higher than the moon with every Twinkle in your eye You strike a match that lights my heart on fire Or these from Whole Wide World: I’m gonna live a crazy dream Impossible as it may seem Doesn’t matter what the future brings I’m gonna live a crazy dream I wanna hold the whole wide world [...]

making a lace paper

I loooove lacey papers. And I looooove tone-on-tone backgrounds. You might remember this page I made quite some time ago. Did you know that you can make your own lace paper with your single-image shapes? If you didn't know, wanna see how? You know that's a rhetorical question, right? ;) Open any shape into your cutting software.  For my example, I'm using the flower that came in the Every Little Thing kit.   Resize it in whatever sizes you need, copy the shapes, and rotate and place them so that the edges of the petals overlap a little. (I chose [...]
