Holiday Wreath with Stand

Just released at  The Holiday Wreath with Stand is a digital cutting file for electronic cutters. 
The download contains a  SVG, WPC, GSD, AI, Vector PDF file and a JPG for reference .  Immediate download after purchase.

   I love the holidays and decorating for the occasion.  I also love the added effects of lighting during this time.  I made a couple of these wreaths to place around my home.  I am using a battery power T-light with the one pictured above.  You could also use the stand to display a card, and wreath as a card front or embellishment.  Also a great file for a centerpiece!

Have a great week!

Making your own Cardboard Embellishments

  Time to get our holiday cards,tags, gifts and scrapbook layouts ready!!  Yes, it is that time of year again already.  One of the things I do yearly to get a start, is make cardboard embellishments of some of my holiday favorite designs.  Great to have on hand for a quick "need to have one" project.  Project is very easy and quick to complete.

Supplies:     Photo paper
                 2 way adhesive tape


First;  I printed my Print n Cut on glossy photo paper. 

I then added my Sookwang double adhesive tape to the back of the photo paper. Leave the backing on until you are ready to apply to chipboard. 

You are now ready to cut with your machine and software program. 

After cutting your photo paper with your designs, you will now cut your chipboard outlines.  I used .030 chipboard and cut it oh, so easy!   The photo above shows on the top row:  Completed Print n Cuts with tape on the back of each one.   Bottom row:  Chipboard outline cuts.
Now you will peel the tape backing off and attach to your chipboard accordingly.  DONE! SIMPLE! 
Below are a few more of my designs I made.
  You can use your regular cardstock/printing paper for the prints but I really like the extra finish using the photo paper.  Using the chipboard adds dimension to your cuts.
  Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my Blog!  New designs being released this week, so please check back!

Winter Scene by Jamie Gillahan

Software: Funtime Scrapbooking
Files Used: String of Lights by Judy Stark
Materials: Card stock, embroidery thread, Glossy Accents, Mod Podge, fine glitter

For this project, I started out by following Terri Mouw's video on how to convert any digital coloring book page to a piecing or print & cut file.  I found a great site with some beautiful Christmas coloring pages and printed the page in the recommended PDF format.  Or you could right click on the image and save image as a PNG to your computer.  Either way, Funtime can import the image to create a cut file.  I just LOVE the fact that Funtime can import all sorts of file types including SVG, DXF, EPS, AI, PDF, images (JPG, BMP . . . ), and several others!!

Then I imported the Christmas House Coloring Page and used the auto vector to create the cut file.  I changed the color of the lines so that when it came to cutting out specific colors I was only cutting out the shapes that I needed in each color.

Since this was a larger image, I duplicated the whole image and changed the pen style to the kiss cut.  I made sure to leave my outer most rectangle as the regular cut.  Doing this allows me to cut out the rectangle (in this case) and then leave the pattern to follow while I'm piecing my page together!  

Once all my pieces were cut out, I glued them onto my background.  I then mixed a small amount of some fine glitter with Mod Podge and "painted" it on to the snow.  It's just something to see freshly fallen snow when the sun is shinning that simply amazes me!!

Using green embroidery thread, I outlined the house where I wanted to string the Christmas lights.  Then using the individual lights from the String of Lights by Judy Stark I cut some out and applied them to the string.  To give the light bulbs more dimension I added some Glossy Accent Tones.  How big are the light bulbs you ask?  Each one measures 0.139 by 0.217. 

I wrapped a jump ring (usually used with making jewelry) with green embroidery thread for the wreath on the door.

I originally made this with the thought of if being a card but as I put more into it I've decided to frame it.  I had so much fun with this simple paper piecing that I'm already on the hunt for more coloring book pages that I can create with!!

Thanks for looking!!
