I saw this file at my “go-to” site www.lovesvg.com and I knew I was going to do something with it.
I just cut a piece of chipboard (from the Team KNK store!) into an 8×8 piece and glued a pretty piece of Halloween paper I had from a DCWV stack. I used brown ink for the edges and a piece of wire to hang it.
I used brown and black vinyl. This picture shows the brown vinyl a little better than the other one did.
I also sprayed it with clear acrylic spray to help seal the paper on the edge of the chipboard.
This was another customer request. It is so easy to do, just selecting some fun fonts and sizing each line so that the finished product fits the piece of wood you plan on using.

This plaque was made using wood, paint and vinyl. I painted the plaque and let it dry for 24 hours. I then used Klic n Kut Studio to design the saying. I typed the whole saying and then went line by line and selected the font I wanted for each line. The words pumpkins and cornstalks were made by selecting transform and then fit text to arc. This has to be done prior to breaking path. I then went to arrange and selected break path. I went back and selected arrange, make path (ctrl/H) for each line. I then made a 12×24 rectangle ,which represented the size of the wood , and started resizing each line to fit where I wanted them. The rectangles are just guides to line up each line. Here is the file for anyone who would like it. It is in KNK format, SVG and MTC

Two of the teachers I work with are getting married next month so I was assigned the job of making a card. I struggled with coming up with an idea for this and finally I went to my favorite go-to site… www.lovesvg.com.
(By the way, I don’t get anything free or compensation for using their stuff).
I made a shape card. I used that heavy weight kraft paper from Joann for the base. I really like that stuff. It makes for a nice, sturdy card.
I thought about doing the leaves and lettering in paper, but vinyl is so much easier. Even though I’m limited on my color choices (I need to order some more vinyl from Team KNK so I have more variety!), It made it so much easier to apply and best of all, no glue mess!
Machines: Zing for cardstock (10/10/red blade) and Maxx for vinyl (f 75 v 250)
I hesitated sharing this story because it is not pretty. But if it makes one person extra cautious when going through a divorce it is worth sharing.
My niece started selling real estate with the same company as my son-in-law so he became her mentor. My niece lives in the same town that she grew up in and she has 3 kids and was a teacher for a period of time so she knows a lot of people. One of these friends was her first “sale”. The couple had 3 kids, the eldest was about the same age as my nieces eldest who is 11. My son in law said they were the nicest family. So they bought the house and moved in. My niece had me make this sign for the family.
A few months later the husband was arrested for domestic abuse. The wife filed for divorce, the husband got out on bond. Long story short, he went for supervised visitation with his kids and as his wife dropped off the kids he killed her in front of his parents and then committed suicide. Domestic abuse happens every day, in every walk of life. Leaving is the most dangerous time.
