Lettering Delights BIG BANG BUNDLE

The Lettering Delights Big Bang Bundle is here. It's $100 for 100 SVG Sets, but if you have a 25% off coupon you can snag this deal for $75 bucks (which i just did) . this makes the sets only 75 cents each. awesome value. these sets usually go for like 5 bucks each! and if you got this deal last year it's all new sets! AHHH This is your time of the year to stock up

Last year They made this set available for only three days, 100 SVG sets for $100.

Starting TODAY, the bundle will be available for 5 days with a whole different set of products.

This round-up includes 100 Cut It SETS and yes...its $100 but you are paying only $1/set.

Coupon codes will apply so YOU can buy the bundle for $75. Check your emails, if you get the Lettering Delights Freebies then you probably have a coupon code in your email.

No one can ever beat that price for cut its. The count of these cut its is an unbelievable 1600+!

These are files you would pay $1 for elsewhere. (including the Silhouette Online Store)

Have you bought some of the product? So you will be some repeat but you are essentially getting 100 sets for $75 when you use a coupon code. Without the bundle, they would only get 16-20 sets. So its worth the repeats... and then some!!

All the product is available for individual download only (and thankfully). Not sure what the file size would be for 100 sets in one zip, but we don't want to do that! All the product is available in their LD account and through MTC, if you have that software

It will ONLY be available from the 24th-28th!


Hurry! Limited time offer Only!!

Peachy Keen 3d Challenge: Weather

Today is another Peachy keen Challenge day!

Today's challenge is to create a 3d Project with the theme weather
all while using your Peachy Keen Stamps of course!!!!!!

For my Project I decided to make a fridge Magnet Game for my daughter because she always likes to play with her things on the fridge while I'm working in the kitchen. She has outgrown her ABC's and Numbers so I thought I would give her something new for her to play/learn with.
This Photos do not do the project enough Justice, They are much cuter in person

 It's a set of 6 Weather Icons and  6 Words that match the icon. I thought this would be good for her so she can start associating the words with their meanings. Also this is great because I can now have her look out the window and tell me what the weather is.

I cut all the icons Using Lettering Delights Weather Girl SVG Set ( also available: Weather Boy SVG Set)b. Which has some fantastic and cute shapes. I also at some point plan on turning the Little Girls and Boys into Magnets too and Peachifiying those for my daughter to play with (but that's a more advanced game of matching the appropriate clothing to the weather)

I cut all the Icons out at 4 inch width. They all have various heights.

I used the Following Stamps for each of the faces

Windy: January 2012 SOTM KIT Faces
Sunny: Happy Lashes 1 1/8"
Snowing: In Sitches 1 1/8" and Princess Faces Assortment (for snowflakes)
Raining: Febuary 2012 SOTM KIT Faces
Storm: In Stitches 1 1/8
Partly Cloudy: March 2012 SOTM KIT Faces (to be released)

For the Word Magnets, I used Various Fonts from Lettering Delights, and Printed them out on White Cardstock

Fonts used:
Windy: LDJ Kris Kringle
Sunny: LD Shelly Script
Snowing: LDJ Whale tail
Raining: LD Kracken
Storm: LD Brownnose
Partly Cloudy: LD Red Hatter's Hand

I also used some Studio G Glitter Glue, Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen, Timeless Twine bakers twine in Baby Blue and Lots of Magnet Strips (found a pack of 6 at Michaels for $1.25 and cut those into pieces)

I really hope you enjoy my project. Make sure you head over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog in order to join the challenge and check out the rest of the Design team inspiration.

Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday: Tags!

Hi Everyone,

I have been a busy bee preparing for the Peachy Keen Stamps release week that is coming up but I have had time to prep a super cute project for Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge.

This week the challenge is to create any project featuring Tags.

For my project I just decided to create a tag

I cut a tag shape out of a Scrap of Kraft Cardstock, stamped my PK-852 Bottoms Up Snowman on Kraft Cardstock as well. I have never ever before colored on kraft so this was a new learning experience. I colored him using my prismacolor pencils and some Studio G Glitter Glue (which in my opinion is way better than stickles and only costs $1 for a bigger bottle too, available michaels)

The background was stamped using PK-299 Lucky Day Shamrock I used my brayer (i just bought one this weekend) and inked my background stamp in a gradient using SU Crumb Cake and Wild Wasibi. So the background Starts off being Crumb Cake and then Gradially turns to green which I think is so fun!

I then punch out a border strip in kraft and added Some ribbon from Papertrey Ink in "New Leaf"

The Sentiment is stamped in SU Basic Black from Scrappy moms Stamps "Spring Fling" (of course).

make sure you head over to Scrappy moms Stamps and join in on the challenge as well as check out the other Design team Inspiration..

Have a great day!

Also Happy Fat Tuesday/Strove Tuesday!

Scrappy Moms Sneak Peak :Mini Messages

Today is a beginning of a release weekend at Scrappy Moms Stamps and i was set and determined to make a masculine card. For some reason they are always such a struggle for me, Maybe because i dont not have too many masculine images.

So late last night I was drawing up my Brownie and Bebe Svg Freebies and I came across some plaid paper that looked like a shirt... and idea was born

I decided to make Zack, this adorable cutie svg file. I'm imagining that he is a friend of Brownie and Bebe since I basically used the same body type.

if you're Kraft and you know it clap your hands!!

This card stands 3.5x5 ( i just used a scrap to make it)  I used the "Hello" from Mini messages

And I stamped it over and over in a pattern on the middle of my cardstock using Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink. I then left a little room and added a "hi" stamp from Simple Sentiments in Old Olive, since I thought that came very close to green pattern of the shirt.

I added some minor doodling and that's it.

Hope you enjoyed my card tomorrow I will be showcasing the second scrappy moms stamps release "owl occasions"

Thank you!

To all my Dearest and loyal friends and blogging family

I just wanted to say thank you for being there for me and your kind words and I want you to know that I appreciate you all!

As a thank you please feel free to download this hand drawn svg set that I created. 100% drawn by myself alone, though my daughter did suggest that they be "princesses"

Special thanks to my PKS sisters on this one who gave me such great ideas in their creation

Meet Bebe and Brownie: They are best friends just like  me and you :) Bebe is organized prim and proper while Brownie is a messy and free spirited! opposites but friends never the less.

Free Download   ( No longer available. Please email using the Contact me Form if you are interested in downloading this file. Thank you)

I hope you enjoy these little darlings and if you make a project please comment on this post.

These are free to share with your friends. Feel free to Pin, or discuss on your blog, but make sure they get it from the link on my site.


Hugs and Kisses

from your 1/2 brownie and 1/2 Bebe Friend!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge: Hearts


Today is another Terrific Tuesday Challenge with Scrappy Moms!

Today's Challenge is to create a project that features hearts!  Easy Enough Right?!!
Here is my project!

bear in envelope card

Isn't this little bear the cutest? I got him a while ago from Designs on Cloud 9 when he was the weekly Freebie, but he's for sale now here

Anyways when you get the file all the pieces come completely separately, which I personally do not like. So I went ahead and "put them together" in my make the cut software, utilizing the layers feature and just moving and rotating the parts and pieces so that they are stacked in a way much like the finish product. Then i was able to select the images as a whole and re-size so that the finished product is just shy of 4 inches tall. This sounds complicated but it's really not.

I then used the Shadow feature and Created 2 Shadows of the main image at .0775 inches each. One of the Shadows included the base and hearts and the other was just of the main envelope. I welded this two shadows together to create the base for my shape card.

All of the cardstock is from Recollections and all Scraps the Card base is cut from PTI Kraft Cardstock because I wanted it to be extra sturdy

bear card inside

Stamp Sets Used

  • Scrappy Moms Stamps
    • "XOXO" " Hugs" Double Hearts (inside Card), "Smaller ♥(inside Card)," Love Notes
    • "Happy Valentine's Day", "larger ♥(inside Card)," Crazy for You
    • "Special Delivery" Designer's Choice
  • PK-754 Critter Faces Set A Medium -Peachy Keen Stamps
I stamped the inside of the card with the various icon stamps from the two Scrappy Moms Stamps Valentine Sets: Love Notes(2011) & Crazy for you (2012)

The Sentiment "Sepcial Delivery" I masked off and stamped twice, once in Melon Mambo and then again in Basic Black. I punch it out with my Fiskars Cameo Apperance Punch and then cut the punched out shape in my trimmer to give it a straight edge on one side.

That's pretty much it.Added some ribbon, button, timeless twine and that's it

 Simple and adorable Card!

Hope you like it

Elegant Valentine's Day Card

Happy Monday Everyone

Today I am sharing with you a project I made over the weekend.

greeting farm madelynn
she's a diva! Oh Snap!

This card is 5x7. The pattern paper is from GCD Cloisonne 8x8 Paper Pad. Which I have had forever, and practially still have a ton of it still left!

I was able to go to Hyatt's and pick up a few more shades of Prismacolor Pencils to add to my collection.

I also dug through my old and dusty collection of Rubber Stamps and found this cutie named Madelynn from The Greeting farm that I purchased ages ago and she is now discontinued.

I Colored my sweet Madelynn in greys and pinks as I wanted her colors to pick up the grey in the pattern paper.

I cut around using my paper trimmer and then I inked her with SU Pretty in Pink in, k and placed her on a slightly larger white mat. I cut out a rectangle from the SVG Cuts Nested Lacey Shapes Set in red cardstock and Inked the Edges with SU Riding Hood Red Ink.

I don't know where I got the Heart doilies from. I honestly believe I found them in the $1 bin at michaels ages ago. But I added two underneath my stamped image

Found the ribbon and Heart Button in my stash and the Red/White Baker's Twine is from Timeless Twine (but of course!)

The Outside Stamp "A love without end.." is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Love Notes Stamp Set  (Last year's Valentine's release) which I stamped on a banner SVG File that I created in my make the Cut Software

inside card
Stamping on the inside of the card.

The inside I stamped  "One life, one love, one you" is also from Scrappy Moms Stamps Love Notes. While the "Happy Valentine's day" is from Crazy 4 you also from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

I hope you enjoyed this pretty quick and adorable card!

Stay tuned as tomorrow I have another cutie project for Scrappy moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge.
