My Exciting news is out!!!

Happy Monday everyone :)

I have be selected to be a design team member for MyGrafico!!!! I am so excited to become a new member of this cool team... This request for new dt members was to think out side of the box, so I don't think you will be seeing many cards here....

My for DT for MyGrafico Crafts project is from the Dilek Back to School.  

I created :

a gift tag with one file

a gift box (perfect for a box a crayons)

'homemade' crayons box...

These files were great to work with.!!! I used a few different techniques to create each of these projects.
I printed the clip art on paper then used my cutter to cut the box I also took some of the files and made them into an .svg as to use the cutter to cut them out. I also made sure to use lots of layers and dimensions tape to give it even more eye popping.

I hope you enjoyed this first of many projects to come for the Design Team for MyGrafico Challenge and Feature Files ... I will be posting something for MyGrafico Design Team each Monday, and I will be posting other projects too, but this gives you a plan to check back each Happy Monday...!(at least)...

I just want to give you, all my followers, a GREAT BIG THANKS  for sticking it out with me and leaving your encouraging notes and comments.  Keep'm coming..!!!

I think I promised a new project...if not here it is anyway!! heehee

Hey all my followers and peeps that check me out once in awhile...How are you all doing? Things are busy around here, I am getting prepared for the County Fair for next month and have a whole line of craft/projects that I need to make-to enter.  So with that being said...I put together this cute little church...well made this set for a back to school kind of thing, but when I saw the files, the first thing that came to mind is a church, a wedding, and how in the old days (ok, Little House on the Prairie) the school was also the church, or was it that the church was a school room? anyway, I had to make it ASAP!! and so this is my creation from School Days SVG Kit... go check it out, its AMAZING!!!

Ok, so the figurine was my wedding cake topper (years ago), that has a great story...if you look carefully(I tried to hide it) you can see that the figurine was broken...It was placed on the top of the cake and after that I can remember that it looked so funny, my cake was only 3 small tiers and this figurine was SO BIG...and the gal that made the cake was not aware of the size topper I had chosen...well anyway, I was in the back room doing the final touches on my 2 daughters and I, when we heard this HORRIBLE sound, You see the chapel was only yards away from the Major train tracks, and when it roars thur our little town, it makes almost everything shake a I am in hopes that is what happened, but there was someone there that was really jealous of our wedding, and some say that she is the one that 'oops it fell?'...heehee..well anyway it was all picked up and kinda fixed before the Bride and Groom were to cut the can you see the crack? Well anyway, enough of that, fun memories that is... And off to make more creations...Navajo County Fair- Here I come!!!

Leave me some luv, cuz right now I am really feeling that this blog is just getting ignored, but I guess I do it for me, and thats all that matters (well the hubby tells me that) if you are a follower and check out this post PLEASE just say 'Hi' and if your not a follower Please consider it, I would love to have more the 34 I have but more is ALWAYS better!! right?  lol  ...

Until next time, Katie

Hey, this is an all call out to all my stalkers (and yeah its you, lol) SVGCUTS.COM is having a Birthday ATC Swap going on now...If you have already signed up...then you need to go do it again, as Reets said...It seems to be that a cyber ghost cleaned up the forum and OOPS took out this post. So PLEASE if you were signed up go back, and if you were not signed up then now is the time to join the fun...You can choose to do it each month, Reets posts a call for the 'Next' swap and you post 'I'm In' and then post your address...that simple... Then you make about 5-6 ATC's which means you get 5-6 from all sorts of peps...It's so fun and when you get one in the mail, it just brightens your day, gives you something to smile about!! %) ...

Happy Monday, have a great one...and I have another post later today-so come on back by and see the latest creation I made!!! its WORTH IT!!!

It's a ?

What do you do with an old lamp shade, some wood blocks, a pole and some spray paint...oh and a little hard work...

Ok, so it's not my original idea, but it is my own 'spin' of it...

It's kinda bare for now...but I have great things to hang from it... I spent less than $20.00 for all the materials. My dad put his finishing touches on it with the red pin strip on the middle post... Now I can hang all those supplies that are just 'tucked' away in drawers, never to be seen again, and put them in a clear bag and hang it on here... it even spins without moving the base!!!

Now I know the pictures are not the best, sorry, but I just could not wait for help to get a better back drop...And I just had to post it as soon as I got it finished...

I hope to find a good home for it in my craft room (I have not figured that out yet).

If you like what you see, and need some more details to the construction of this project, please feel free to leave a comment and I will get back with you on it...

thanks for checking me out on my blog...Hope you all have a very wonderful work week ahead !!!

Happy Craft'n, oh and !!!
