Prairie Chic-Boot Vase with Lily Pencils!

originally posted March 21, 2013

UPDATED

Happy Spring, Everyone!

Ye’sir!  I made a Boot Vase, a Card and a half-dozen Lily Flower Pencils-all for my niece’s birthday and doubles as a going to College gift as well!  Sure hope she likes it all!

Now-kick up your boots, grab your fav cup of slurp and sit for a spell and enjoy this long post of all  kinds of imformationals ;p

CowgirlBootVase-Card-LilyPencils

From the Bo Bunny ‘Prairie Chic’ Collection Bundle I used the papers, jewels, cardstock stickers, petals, chipboard stickers, noteworthy and brads.

Boot Vase

CowgirlBootVase

To create my denim cowgirl Boot I used SVGCuts ‘Happy Trails’ SVG Collection, cut all the pieces inside the boot folder with my Silhouette Cameo.

Once Cut out you’ll want to organize pieces 1-9 and start adhering them together starting with #1 and so forth around and close up the top part of the boot.

For the Toe of the boot just adhere together the three pieces, pop-out to form the toe and glue to the top part of the boot.   I also cut out the pieces for the Sole of the boot and panels.

The last photo show the bottom of the sole and the side panels, these all get adhere with a tacky glue.    All of these ‘denim’ boot pieces got inked up with ‘Faded Blue Jeans’ Tim Holtz distress ink.

Congratulations!  You’re ‘Boot Vase’ is Finished and ready for a half-dozen Lily Pencils!

Paper Lily Pencils 

BootFrontSIDE  BootzBackSIDE

First, you will want to open your editing software I used  Silhouette Studio Designer Edition [SSDE] software and from your SVGCuts ‘3D Flowers’ Collection SVG kit locate the ‘Daffodil’ flower file.  [down below in the Comments Box, I have directions how to do this is SCAL and Design Space.
Then,  I edited the flower part by using the ‘draw an elipse’ tool, draw a circle right in the center covering some of the ‘leaf’ part.

Next, select the circle and the flower part and click on ‘object’, ‘modify’, ‘subtract’!  All the flower pieces should be apart now.  My petals measure 3.720″ x 1.310″ but you can skew and shape yours any way you want them.  Ahhh…love technology these days  ;p

To create the ‘slit’ at the base of each flower petal [you only have to do this to ONE of the petals and discard the other five petals] click on the ‘draw a line’ tool and make a line about 3/4″ from the bottom center of the petal.

Now, group and duplicate the petal for six-petals.

You are now ready to watch the Video below which will show you each step to shape and compete your bouquet!

Dad’s Catch of the Day!

Father’s Day is just around the corner and for our family that means tradition!  Every year we take Dan to Dayton Car Show full of vintage cars, trucks, bikes, you name it it’s there lining the entire historical town’s main street!  There are races which go right past our favorite bakery where the apple fritters are Freshly baked and melt in your mouth!  Oh yummm!   And speaking of food you name the vendors down the side roads, they’ve got it!   From Greek, Filipina, Italian and plain ole American hamburger it’s all there!

Then, it’s off to our favorite fishing hole and boy do we catch FISH!  oh Yes!   Tons and Tons, in just  a few hours we’ve all caught our limit and ready to head home for the big fish fry!  :)

When I saw Echo Park Paper’s  ‘The Great Outdoors’ Mini Kits,  I knew I had to have it and actually bought Two [one to hoard] but it won’t last too long I have two boys here and they both love to fish and scrap! haha!

So, here’s what I came up with for my hubby for Father’s Day!   His very own Fish Box full of all kinds of ‘goodies’ and a sweet coordinating card :)

Yes- It opens! Pretty spiffy, eh?!

The open box…lots of room for all kinds of things like …ahemmm–> Tackle!  How about some delicous homebaked cookies for an unexpected surprise YUM!

The Box was created with Echo Park Paper’s  ‘The Great Outdoors’ Mini Kit and SVGcuts ‘Father’s Day Mega Pack’ which can be found by clicking on one of the buttons in the left side bar.

Yes!  The Fish box opens and ready to fill with all kinds of goodies.

I edited the SVGcuts Fish file and created sides and a lid and cut the pieces out.

The Card and Envelope,  I just simply cut out the SVGcuts fish card files and assembled and decorated them, using Echo Park Papers mini kit and that’s it!   Easy Peasy!

I hope he likes it…can’t wait to give it to him :)

Have a Crafty weekend and Thank you for Stopping by and taking time to Visit here! See ya Soon :)

Hugs and Blessings,

Hand Knitted Strawberry Shortcake Dress set!

Well, it’s FINALLY Done!!  lol

Not only was I challenged to begin with, with my concussion, But the pattern was written by an UK designer and I’m an American Irish girl!  I’ll get back to that here in a few, after I share the finished sweet set!

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-Set-by-KimberlyRae

After months working on this ‘gem’, I’m quite pleased with it!

As you can see, I altered the pattern and created a more cap sleeve rather then the long.  I also changed the neck to white and didn’t use so many tiny Knitted strawberry flowers as it called for.  And I knitted the ‘Pips’ [strawberry SEEDS], which I like a lot more.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetCollar-by-KimberlyRae

I used Cot-Lin yarn by Knit Picks  and love the subdued colorways.   They aren’t so shocking and defined red, white and green and just yummy.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetD1-by-KimberlyRae

The pattern calls for a size 6 and size 0 for the flowers, but I used size 2 Harmony circular needles for the flower petals and centers.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetD2-by-KimberlyRae

Speaking of Circulars-  This pattern is written for Flat work!  No, in the round.   I wish that was stated right up front, I had no idea until I bought the pattern and got into it!!  But that’s how I roll…should have asked questions, instead of diving in and assuming! lol  Maybe, that’s due to I’m still a Young knitter! haha

TIP for my American friends-  UK knitting Lingo as follows:

  • PIP= seed
  • yrn= YO or Yarn Over
  • stocking stitch= Stockinette

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetShoe-by-KimberlyRae

So of course, with Flat work, there’s a LOT of time intense seaming to be had, but the results are oh Great!

I loved working with the Cotton/Linen blend yarn and I just love, love the way it turned out!

I’ve started a couple more projects working with Anne Geddes Baby Sport yarn and talk about yummy…stay tuned!

I Cut all SVG files pieces and when weaving the three strips that make the basket, I made sure to start from the bottom up. Doing this ensures a nice even weave.

I’m Always needing a card…Aren’t we All? and today I grabbed my dies and stamps and had so much fun whippin’ up my Thank  you card!   It was so fast and Fun to make.  I’m pretty Excited to share with you some Lawn Fawn goodies, today.

 LawnFawnThankYouCardDbyKimberlyRae

For my card I used “Into the Woods” stamp and die set to create the fox, clouds and tree trunk.

I used Memento ink Cocoa Brown  and colored the fox and the house with my Copic markers.

The tree trunk, I used Ranger Distress Ink color ‘Peacock Feathers’, as well as for the bird and ‘many thanks’.

For the stitched card I used “Stitched Journaling Card” Die set!

LawnFawnThankYouCardbyKimberlyRae

Every time I see any of the Lawn Fawn products, they just make me so Happy and gives me those warm fuzzies inside!

This Thing Called Crazy Life!

Hi Everyone!

I know, I know I’ve been absent for a time!  I’ve miss  you all and I’m happy to be blogging again!  Be warned, this will be a long one 😉

So much has been going on – Life is crazy!  In November , I was in a major car crash and even though my car was totalled, I came out of it alive with my left side all bummed up, concussion and whiplash.  I’m still in physical therapy, but healing more and more everyday.  I’m up to 10 minute walks, short driving and I’m able to blog, today. Yay me!    So,  for those of you going through similar experience be encouraged and know it does get better, with time.

On top of that, we transferred jobs and  made a Huge move [I say ‘huge’, since it’s been 13 years since our last move] in September!!  My youngest kid adjusted quite quickly and loves  his new school.  My wayward 18yo, came back to live with us, in December and he also loves his new school. This School District ROCKS!!!

And speaking of Rockin!  Crafting is about the only thing that kept my sanity, living in our motorhome while our new house was closing.  It took FIVE long months to close, but our home in the Northwest trees by the lake is finally ours! Woot!

Here’s a pic of me on the dock with our puppy Kisses. We sure Love our new home!

KimKissesLakeBeach

I’m so excited to share with you some new goodies to craft with! You’ll see some familiar faces and some New faces, too :)

DYI-Carta Bella ‘Homemade with Love’ Clock!

Hi Everyone!  KimberlyRae, here with my Carta Bella DT project and I have to say I’m soooo Excited to share with you my Real Clock I made; and show you how you can make your very own clock with Carta Bella’s ‘Homemade with Love’ paper kit!

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClock2byKimberlyRae

For those that are not familiar with Carta Bella, they are a newer  Scrapbooking Paper Company that offer paper kits and digital as well.  When purchasing You can expect Every Gorgeous 80# Textured page of the highest quality.  Same goes for the stickers and 6×6 pads, too!  Most kits offer brads and chipboard stickers.  Truly a Crafter’s Dream paper! Wow!  Click right here to check’em out!

Ok, let’s get started!

DSC_2501

First, I used the Print & Cut feature with my Silhouette Cameo Studio Software, to create the mixer, pie and hot pad elements.

If you’re new to P&C, please ask me about my video.

DSC_2500

Then, I cut each element out with my Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine!

DSC_2502

I then layed out the pieces where I thought I wanted them to go and *TIP* took a pic with my cell phone, which helps with reassembling.

DSC_2503

Once all the main pieces are assembled and adhered, I lined up the Clock pieces and added them to the center, as directed from the instructions that come with the clock piece.

GO HERE for Detailed VIDEO on how to do this.

You can find these in most craft stores, I bought mine at Michael’s Crafts . Make sure it’s the 1/4″.

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClock3byKimberlyRae

I adhered the Fork, knife and spoon to the clock hands and some May Arts Red burlap twine to add dimension and interest…just plain o’fun! lol

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClockbyKimberlyRae

I used “Maison de Madeline SVG Kit” to create the cutting files for my clock.

I really love the way my kitchen clock turned out and can’t wait to give it away to my friends home warming.
