About bartlettpair

Born and raised in Texas to two really awesome parents, the Lord decided it was time for my immediate family and I to "head 'em up and move 'em out!" to beautiful Wyoming. ~ Oh give me a home---where the buffalo roam---and the deer and the antelope play! That was almost 12 years ago. My studmuffin sweetheart and I have been married for 23 uber awesome years:) Our over the top son is 22 and our amazing daughter is 19. I so enjoy creating of all sorts---but over the past few years, I've developed such a love/passion/heart for creating (paper/metal/vinyl crafting --primarily cards) to bless others.

 To the glory of our Lord Jesus, I am so very thankful, humbled, and honored to say that I am blessed Beyond Measure and I want that for you, too.

To Emri Grace, with Love


Hello and WELCOME to the Team KNK designers blog! I’m so thankful that you’re here! You are so very special!

Today’s project is a memories of ‘love’ book for the parents of a new baby girl.  The title of the book is, “To Emri Grace, with love.”The parents will place a photo of their little one inside the front  picture frame plus write little ‘love notes’ to their precious Emri Grace for her to cherish for years to come. It can be a journal entry of –‘precious one, your smile made my heart sing today’–or–‘You are so strong–you stood on your own today!’………making sure to date each entry.

Primary materials  used:

KNK Zing

Make the Cut Software

KNK Zing thick cut blade


spiral notebook (this one is considered to be 5X7)

card stock and cereal box

various ribbon scraps


Xyron Sticker Maker machine

We r Memory Keepers Big bite



straight pin


Today’s project may appear to be more on the advanced side of the spectrum, but with all sincerity, that’s what crafting with the over the top Zing is all about!  Your projects are sure to have the look as if you are a professional.

This is the first time I’ve used my awesome Zing to cut cereal box—can you say ‘one pass’??  I am definitely impressed!!

Thank you for dropping by, we’d love to hear from you plus see what our posts have inspired you to create! Until next time:  HUGE {{{HUGS}}} and be blessed

PS~  Make sure to place a little scrap of paper/card stock in between the ‘frame backing’ and the bottom layer of cereal box so that it leaves an opening to slide your photo inside:)

WELCOME and thank you for stopping by TeamKNK! Today’s tutorial is brought to you by Tammy from Beyond Measure.

Todays’ feature is a Pop-up Father’s Day card. Tammy combined two different pop up card mechanisms for a fun ‘tada!’ effect upon opening the card:)  The card was created in the amaZing  Make the Cut Software and cut on the over the top KNK Zing electronic cutting machine. Be sure to watch the video to check out the two pop up features inside the card!

Here’s the link to the Team KNK Pop up card video tutorial! Enjoy!


And here is a link to the cutting file for the card: Father Day’s pop up card in MTC, KNK, PDF, and SVG formats

Thank you so very much for stopping by–we hope to see you here again! The Make the Cut pop up  mechanism file is post below. 🙂 Until next time…HUGE {{{HUGS}}} and be blessed

It’s  awesome that we are given so many different options to create within our Make the Cut Software!  I know you’ll love playing with the rotation duplicating tool!!  It reminds me of a spin art toy!!! Do you recall how you place the card on the machine, turn the power on –let the spinning (rotation) begin, then drop paint onto the surface not having any idea of the outcome?  Be adventurous this Memorial Day Weekend—have some fun with your rotation duplicating tool.  Until next time–be blessed
