It has been a long time…but I am back with a new cutter!!!!!!


Hello Everyone! I know that it has been a long time since I have posted especially anything about papercrafting but I have settled in down here in Florida and am ready to start crafting again.

I will be changing the name of my blog soon because I well, no longer own a cricut. I thought about this decision for a long time and came to the conclusion that I just felt limited with the cricut and I wanted full design capability. So I actually turned back to the company that I started with as far as having a larger cutting machine. I went with the KNK Zing!


So far I love this machine. I used to own the KNK Element and I loved it but I was using it for a business that eventually burned me out when it came to designing anything. That is when I decided to invest in the cricut machine. Now that I’ve had a break  I realized how much I enjoyed having the ability to design if I want to. 

Here are a few things that I have done so far with the machine:



This was a fun little treat box that I created in MTC. That is one of the neatest things about the Zing is that it comes with MTC! So for anyone that was using it with their cricut they do not have to worry about learning a new software.

This is the first box I have ever created and I really liked how it turned out. I will be putting this file in the file section for purchase. My son gave this to his teacher filled with the new pumpkin spice hershey kisses! They are yummy by the way!!!

Next thing I created was for my dining room table! I wanted to decorate it for fall and I was looking for a pumpkin. Well I found the perfect one over at svg cuts . This website is amazing. They have the best svg files I have ever seen. I am convinced that I need to have a separate account just to fund the files that I want to purchase from this site. If you have not checked them out I encourage you to. You will not regret it. Plus there is always a great kit that is free with purchase!! Plus they have some really great free svg’s. 

Here is my pumpkin:



This is from their Pick a Pumpkin kit. It has a ton of files in it and they are all so much fun. I am not done with this yet. I am going to make a white smaller pumpkin and then I am going to add some mums that I purchased from svg cuts. I will post those picks when I get them done.

So that is what I have been up to. I will be blogging regularly next week.  So come back and check it out. If you have any questions about the Zing let me know!!! It was hard to choose between it and the Cameo but I chose the zing because of the different specs. If you want to know more specifics message me!!!

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.

I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.

I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.

Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!


Disney Layouts using SVG’s

Good Morning!! I wanted to share some layouts with you today that I made for my Disney Album. These layouts I did not cut from cartridges but from SVG files. They were a lot of fun and I love how they turned out. I am just going to post them and then I have to paint my porch today so I cannot spend to much time in the blogging world the paint is calling my name So here they are I hope they bring inspiration so some of you!!Here is a double page layout I made from svg files. The Lilo and Stitch font I traced from an image on Google then the surf board I traced also from Google images it was a coloring page image.  The flower and leaves were an svg I hadThis next layout is of my son Matthew he was blessed enough at Disney’s Hollywood Studio to be chosen as a Jedi Trainee for the Jedi Training school. He was so excited. We video recorded it and the video is hilarious because when they pick the kids you can cheer for yours to cause attention to be drawn and then they may pick your child. …
