We have KNK’s, we can do anything!

When I first got my KNK my only goal was to be able to cut something…anything. I was so worried it would be to difficult for me to master. It wasn’t long before I could cut and I went crazy buying files. I was quite sure I would never be able to design something, it wasn’t even a goal. I was pleased as punch when I could weld letters together. When Shirley told me about grouping and ungrouping it opened a whole new world. :~) Little by little I began to discover all of the things this great machine and KNK Studio could do. Now, if I see something online that I like I know that “I can do that”. I recently saw an adorable flower card on pinterest and it linked back to a blog, and eventually to Split Coast Stampers. I was able to import the pdf file to KNK Studio and convert it into a cut file.I used my Cuttlebug and embossed the petals and the flower center. It is cute, but the inside of the card is tiny. It might be a great gift tag.

  1. Love it Nancy! I love going to the bank or other places in town where the people seem in awe that I’m able to do what I do with my cutter. Just yesterday, I invited them all to my house to see how I do it all. So maybe KNK will get some orders out of it when they come!

  2. You are sooo right. Cutting with a digital cutter beats cross stitch any day of the week. I really enjoyed your article. Thank you.

  3. I agree about cutting verses cross stitch! Can’t see the dang stuff anymore to do it!! Cute file, thank you. I have “tea” friends and my mom so I know this file will be used.

  4. Love this card and thanks for the files. I never thought I could design either but Sandy’s videos make it so easy. She is such a good teacher and her videos are so spot on that it makes designing a snap. All the other great people on her digests are so helpful and willing to share, it is just like one big supportive family. Thanks so much for sharing, Nancy.

  5. I know! I feel the same way. Can’t wait until retirement to be even more creative!

  6. Well, I know NOTHING about cross stitch, but I do believe that cutting can be very easy and gratifying, once you get your feet wet 🙂

    Thanks for the share, Nancy!

  7. I had not realized how far I had come until I thought about all the different functions I’m using with each project. It seems like I learn something new almost every time I cut something (YAY!). And I still have a lot to learn! Thanks for sharing these cute projects. I LOVE this forum.

  8. Great projects! Love the flower card. Cute idea. I have tons of cross-stitch patterns I know I’ll never get around to making. Maybe I can get a couple done this way. Now how do I get the extra time to do all these great projects? Sleep less?

  9. Thank you for sharing the files. Our machines are wonderful. I just wish they would produce more hours in my day for creative fun.

  10. Cool, Nancy!!! Love both of the items!!! You give me some ideas. Thanks for the files.
