I had a special request for a sign for a wedding. It had leaves, lots of leaves, and the guests were each suppose to sign a leaf at the reception. She sent me a Pintrest picture of what she wanted. I was able to make the leaf and the stems in shapes and then went to Layout/array and made multiple leaves and stems. I then scattered them all over the space and when I had them all where I wanted I welded them together, along with an open rectangle in the center.
I then weeded out the leaves and the center rectangle and applied it to a stained wood plaque. I painted over the areas that I had weeded and waited until the paint was fairly dry before removing the vinyl.
Here is the finished result.

first in an occasional series on making 3 dimensional fabric flowers…
There was a beautiful handmade blouse. A suitable skirt was found for it. Some socks were made to match. The pink glitter high tops worked well. But there was a big problem. There was no hair pretty that matched. And if there is no hair pretty, well, we don’t have an outfit we can wear.
Hairband on Child
Did you ever have a kid? A little kid? And were they very picky about what they would wear and would not wear? Did they go through the phase that everything had to accessorize with everything else or NOTHING got worn? Humm, did that kid grow up into an adult and never outgrow the accessorizing phase? No worries! We are going to accessorize!!
KnK to the rescue.
Headband Close Up
This bunch of sweet violets is cut from wool felt using a fabric blade at 65 pressure and 2 passes. You can learn how to design the bouquet and learn how to make one yourself by watching this video:
If you have leftover violets, you can use them to decorate many things, like these pony elastics.

You can create beautiful pages using just your KNK Machine and your imagination! Add interesting layers to your Paper Crafting Projects to make scrapbook pages just like you see in magazines.
A 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock then a scalloped frame cut from a sheet of patterend scrapbook paper serves as the base for this layout. To anchor this page, I envisioned, then created an interesting shape with an in-line contour for that “pop of color.” I love mixing fonts so I made a two-part page title. The first part of my text was placed on top of my shape and the second part of my text is curved to fit the below this shape. A large photo corner, photo mat and a tiny scalloped border were created to keep the eye moving around the page. To add another layer of interest cut oak leaves and flowers (created by twisiting spirals cut on my KNK) were added. Lastly, ribbon and rhinestones were added to provide texture and embellish this layout.
