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…

(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


My Valentine Card – Pop Up Card Studio with Free File

Love is in the air, and I just love sharing Valentine wishes with my loved ones! I make sure to send something special to my DH, my sister, my mom, my niece, and of course, my DD. This year, with the help of Pop-up Card Studio I have a whole new fabulous style to share with my loved ones.

I used a simple phrase (as I am not ready to do anything too complicated in PCS – LOL) to create my cards for this year.

I added the text “My Valentine”, and used a heart shape from the basic shapes options, to create a “universal” valentine card for 2014. This project was made with my KNK Maxx Air 24″.


  • 2 sheets of 8.5×11 or larger complimentary color card stock
  • Adhesive
  • Absolutely nothing else – its sooooo simple!!



  • Open the file below
  • Cut the inner layer card stock
  • Fold at the fold lines and apply adhesive
  • Fold the 2nd sheet of 8.5×11 card stock in half
  • Adhere the cut, inner layer to the outer layer card stock (first one side, then the other)
  • Voila! Fabulousity!!!




How lovely! Pop-up Card Studio helps make fantastic designs, never before imagined! Here is your free file. Tell your loved ones how special they are to you!

Tis the Season

So this morning we woke up to our first significant snowfall. We had about 6″ of snow last night and it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The scary thing is, with 2 weeks to go I haven’t written a card, the tree is up but with lights only, and not a girft has been purchased. But, somehow, it will get done. :O)


I have three things to share today. One is a simple ornament that I made using the shape feature in KNK Studio.It is simple circles and for the nose I made a triangle and used the arrange/ convert to polyarc to round it a bit. I cut the circle from coredinations white paper using 90 pressure on my KNK Maxx. I then cut the face from vinyl (available at ) using 36 pressure and applied it to the circle. I glued 2 circles together and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder. Add a ribbon and you have a cute little ornament.

The second is a purchased file and I wish I could remember where I purchased it from to give credit. I cut a piece of green burlap and covered the back of a frame with it. Then I cut the file from black vinyl and applied it to the glass of the frame. Such a simple process that could be used in so many ways.

The last thing is something I saw on pintrest. I thought it was neat and knew that I could recreate it in KNK Studio. It was so simple to do and once the file was designed it was a simple matter of cutting it from Vinyl and applying it to a floor tile.

And here is the Love tile file, also in KNK, MTC, and SVG formats: Love Is Quote

I hope that each and every one of you have a Merry Christmas filled with love and Family. There are so many people in our KNK world who have become very dear friends, one more reason why I love my KNK Maxx.
