Happy Halloween!

Oh the fun we use to have Trick or Treating! “In my day” it was relatively safe to be out and about with a group of siblings and we would put on miles to get all of the treats that we could. It was one of the few times of the year that we got candy. Now, we live in the country and have had one trick or treater in 30 years. So we will head to a friends house that is in a popular trick or treat neighborhood (good candy!) and check out all of the ghosts and goblins.

I have a couple of Halloween decorations that I made, one for a friend, one for me, both very simple to design.

This small goblin was made using a scrap piece of wood that I had sitting around that was painted antique white. I used a free font called DBJack-oPattern. The whole font is jack o lantern faces and Halloween graphics. I picked one that I liked and made a stencil from vinyl and painted the black face. I then used black paint around the edges to make it look more primitive. Because it sits on a table I decided to do both sides.

This board was a Pintrest find. I thought it was funny and so I made it for the friend who is allowing us to join her for Halloween.

This is just a 10″x48″ pine board that was painted white and the I designed the image using fonts in KNK Studio. I cut the design from vinyl and applied it to the sign.

My broom broke

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.

Machine Used:

KNK Maxx 24″, red blade.

Materials Used:

chipboard (12×12)

Halloween paper

black vinyl

brown vinyl

Happy Fall!

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

every year I fall for pumpkins

From Miss to Mrs.

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)

Materials: kraft card stock, vinyl, transfer tape
