Moving to Colorado has been quite a change for me. I am having a hard time adjusting to living in the high dessert, but the beauty that surrounds me seems to calm me. I love driving to the mountains seeing the land change. Since I live 60+ miles from a town large enough to have my crafting supplies I am challenging myself to use what I have and see what I can make. I am really starting to work with digital images and mixing it with the layered paper I love. Hope you will enjoy my blog and leave a comment. Thank you!

Well it is Monday morning again and I have a cute idea to dress up your nails. Choose any of the PPbN files that have a simple shape and turn them into a nail decal. This bat is from Harvest Moon file. I choose to make different sizes to see what would work best on each nail. I know that the largest I can go is 1/2 inch and the smallest most things will cut well is 1/4 inch so I try to stay in those sizes. The bats cut really well and were easy to weed.
The footballs were from the Super Bowl Sunday file, but there are several other places to find a football. After cutting vinyl and weeding the design I use a set of sharp tweezers to put on my nails and then I use a clear coat of polish over the nail. These stay on really well and I usually have to pick them off when I an done with the design.

Visiting Santa file from PPbN DesignsThis is how I set up my page for the print-n-cut part of this project. I deleted all cut lines except for the outside edges. I added and offset to the bow extra pieces so no white would show. I added stitching lines to the title by selecting the title letters and did a internal offset. Then I chose a line color (white). Next choose the line style you like ( I chose the second dash one but any will work. Now this is where I goofed up the first time and had to redo but you have to choose a line thickness on the same screen as Line style, I choose .026 but that is your choice, also.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I found this card base and I knew I wanted to make a card out of it. The ppbn files worked great for my princess birthday card. I first put the card together so I had an idea how large I could make my paper piecings.
Next I cut out the figures I wanted, I glittered the castle tops and generated the Make a wish in my DE software. The genie is on a wobble so he moves.

Smores tic tac toe game is such a fun file. I made this one for my grand daughter since she had a rough weekend. Hope she love it. I sized it down pretty small so the mouths didn't cut as good as they should but I wanted it to fit in an envelope.

Snow Queen 2, Frozen Princess 2, Sisters Title with a font off my computer for the names. I had a little trouble with the eyes on Anna but by the time I got to Elsa I had figured them out. I was trying to make it too hard instead of just following the direction.

I have a whole new batch of pictures to scrap after being on vacation for 6 weeks but I have been having trouble finding the ambition to scrapbook. Nikki's new files have my head swimming with lots of ideas just need to set my mind to it and start cutting. This weeks blog layout is one of my grand daughter Claire at the beach. She learned to boogie board during this visit so I know she will be happy to get these pages. The files I used are Fun in the Sun, cute crab, and for the sand bucket cute beach ball, sand castle and sand pail set. For the background paper I experimented with digital papers from Designs by dani that I purchase on Jessica Sprague's one buck wednesday. I used the shapes from ppbn file placed them on the page in design studio and dropped the pattern paper files onto the shapes, then I printed the papers with my Epson WF-7520 wide format printer. I got the idea for the picture on page one from pinterest. The sun has a cute little Peachy Keen face. Hope you all are having a great summer I know I am.

PPbN Designs. The file was Boys and their Toys but I just used the title and the toys. I did make a black layer because my toys were not showing up on my border. I did this by putting the pieces of the file together on the DE mat and then I did a .100 offset. Hope you enjoy my layout and your day. Thank you for visiting my blog. Below is the link for the PPbN Memberhip where Nikki is giving away a new ipad to one of the members.

Hello everyone! I decided to show you how I plan a layout and sometimes decide to change things. I always take a picture before I glue down my pieces to see if I like how I have things laid out.I decided I needed a moon behind the owl so I went into my Silhouette Design Studio and I just made a circle and pulled it off the page a little bit and cut.
