Last month I made a card out of a panda I modified. At work, we had a secret cupid and I knew I wanted to do something with that panda again. So I sized it up and made a panda shape card.
The person I was secretly giving gifts for figured out it was me.
She said that she heard I was the one who “made cute cards.” So I guess I outed myself.
I stamped some envelopes to match.
It was a lot of fun and even though she figured out it was me, it was worth it.
Machine Used: Zing
Materials: Michaels Recollection paper.
At the school I work at, one of our sayings, since the Panda is our mascot, is that we are pandas with heart. I found a cute stamp set at the swap meet and had been wanting to make a Panda-piecing card for awhile. A few months back, I did a print and cut, but I wanted to do paper-pieced one.
I found this cute little dude at this site

But I didn’t want the hat. It was cute… but I wanted him to be plain, so I imported into Inkscape
I deleted the hat (even though it was cute), but I was left with a squashed face, so I easily stretched the head until I had this:
I pieced it all together and ended up with this:
On the inside, I stamped the saying from my new stamp set:
Zing (red blade, 10/10,)
Cardstock (colormates) and Michael’s Recollection
Winter, my favorite time of the year! Christmas is over and we have had below zero temps for the last 10 days or so. The reason I love winter is because for me it is time to stay inside and create! The week between Christmas and New Years is a vacation with out leaving my house.
My Scrap Chick is one of my favorite sites to purchase cutting files. They often have sales where you can get a sweet paper piecing file for 50 cents. They also have a weekly freebie if you sign up for their emails.
This sweet card was made using one of their files. Generally, if I am going to make a card like this I will cut enough for 6-12 cards. It doesn’t take a lot of time to assemble them and I have a large family to share them with. The bird is paper except for the glasses which are vinyl, as is the Happy Birthday.

I hope 2018 is a year filled with good health and time to enjoy the things that you love.
Well hello there KNK-ers!
I seem to be on a banner kick, so I bring you yet another one.
These pictures are horrible. I totally procrastinated and it’s dark and believe it or not, I took these in my dim living room with no flash. I’m actually impressed with this little Canon camera I bought a couple months ago, and considering my lighting conditions are horrible, these pictures could be a lot worse.

I used the leaves from the harvest designs and I ran them through the fiskers to give the leaves some texture and then inked them with some brown and green inks.
I wish I had prettier ribbon, but I didn’t have anything on hand, so I used jute.

Until next time!
So my son just finished his first season of high school baseball. He did pretty good. He worked hard and I’m very proud of his mindset to keep trying, no matter what. He did not give up, even coming into the season recovering from a major broken wrist and being weak from a total of 11 weeks of some sort of cast.
Boy also grew 3 inches during the season and towers over me. Anyway, the parents wanted to give the coach a gift card and a signed card from the boys so I came up with this.
Originally it looked like this, but it just looked too plain, so I added the thanks in brannonball font. Looks baseball-ish, no?
The inside was blank and all the boys signed their names and gave it to the coach. I wasn’t able to get a picture of it all signed, but it was neat to give a personal something that I created that only took minutes to make.
I used: KNK Zing, red blade. Don’t even regard my settings. I need to change my blade again so I won’t even post them.
