Howdy KNK-ers!


Today’s post is brought to you by the Minions. I love the minions and so I’ve been noodling around a project I want to do. I ended up making a card.


This is where I downloaded the file:

Minion files in .svg and .mtc format

I cut the papers out of card stock at about 110 force, 10/10 speed.


I glued the pieces together and lifted some of the parts with foam tape.


I used little black buttons for the overalls. I typed “You’re one in a minion” in word, printed it out and stuck it on with foam tape.


I love shape cards. It’s so easy to put a small shadow layer, copy it and mirror it and you have an instant card.

Here’s some other cool minions to check out. I haven’t opened them, but they looked cute.

font close to Despicable Me (used this for my card)

I so want to make these. I need to order the vinyl so I can.


It would be super easy to do with the KNK Zing.

I’m not sure I’m going to give this card away. I like it and it’s sitting on my dresser right now 🙂


Until next month KNK-ers!

Stay Classy.

Grama, Do you know what rhymes with China?










My grandson Gavin is 5 and his little sister Hailey is 2. They make me smile a lot. They both like Angry Birds so when I found this terrific site I had to try the Angry Bird Files. She has tons of great SVG files  FREE and every one that I tried cut perfectly on my KNK Maxx. The black background on the birds is cardstock, the rest is vinyl. They were super easy to make and Gavin loved them.




Both kids like a cartoon called Max and Ruby. And because I try to keep things “even” between the kids I made Hailey the Max and Ruby card. Both Max and Ruby are entirely cut from vinyl. They have some pretty fine cuts but cut perfectly on the KNK Maxx.

So are you still wondering about China? Gavin is in a pre-K program and they are working on rhyming words. Recently Gavin and Hailey’s mom must have told them that Hailey’s “privates” have a different name than Gavin’s “privates”. So when Gavin came running out of pre-K and told me “Grama, do you know what rhymes with China?” I almost died. But when I thought of the look on his teachers face when he said “Miss Summer, Do you know what rhymes with China?” I couldn’t stop smiling. :O)
