SURVIVOR CARD

Hey Everyone! Ken here with KEN'S KREATIONS. Well I am so proud of so many people who have  faced, battled and survived great cancer and I wanted to make a card in honor of all of those BRAVE ladies:


For those who would like to make this card just like it is in CRICUT DESIGN SPACE can click this link:


So for this project I used my CRICUT EXPLORE with CRICUT DESIGN SPACE. So for all the paper I used the BRUSHED PAPER PACK  from Close To My Heart. This was the perfect paper pack for a breast cancer survivor card with the bright colors it offers.  For the base card I used the ARTFULLY SENT CARTRIDGE. It is sized at 7" height. 


I moved on next to the frame with the sentiment "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger". You can find this frame on the PINK JOURNEY CARTRIDGE/DIGITAL SET. I cut this frame at 4" height and used the Creative Memories Be Young font using my PILOT V5 PENS in black using the CRICUT EXPLORE write feature. I inked the yellow oval with HONEY STAMP INK and the Green oval with NEW ENGLAND STAMP INK using my CTMH SPONGE DAUBERS. For the center of the three flowers I used pink gemstones affixing them with my I-ROCK CRYSTAL SETTER. At this point I could move onto the iconic pink ribbon. I used the CTMH ARTBOOKING CARTRIDGE and sized it at 4.20" height.

I inked the edges of the ribbon with two different inks. Using my CTMH SPONGE DAUBERS I took  COTTON CANDY INK and shaded the entire base of the ribbon and then took HOLLYHOCK INK and shaded just the edges of the ribbon. 


Thanks for taking a look at today's Kreation. Take a look at the shopping below list for all the items you will need to complete this project. You can also find the file to this design space card:

DO NOT OPEN CARD

Hey Everyone!! Ken here with KENS KREATIONS.

So christmas is just right around the corner, scary huh?? So right about now is the time I start working on my Christmas cards. Here is the first Christmas card of the season:

In this post I will go over to make this card step by step and provided all the shopping supply list below. However if you would like to just make this card exactly how you see if you can open this project in design space by CLICKING HERE.

This card used the CRICUT EXPLORE MACHINE and the CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY CARTRIDGE. Below these photos you will see photos of the handbook and what sizes to make everything, or once again you can access the project by CLICKING HERE. I started the project by cutting gout all my pieces using the SNOWHAVEN PAPER PACK. After I cut out all the pieces I inked my edges using CTMH SLATE INKCTMH RUBY INK and CTMH SPONG DAUBERS.



Once all the pieces were cut and edges were inked I was able to focus on my stamp sentiment. I started by using the HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS STAMP SET to stamp the sentiment using GLACIER INK. This stamp set is the OCTOBER STAMP OF THE MONTH SET which you can get for only $5 if you spend $50 in my CTMH STORE. I wanted the sentiment words to pop a little more so I used BLACK CRICUT PEN and highlighted the sentiment. To separate the present from the bow I used the BLUE CHEVRON RIBBON that you will get FREE with a $50 order placed on my CTMH STORE. I used some RED BAKERS TWINE and hid the end of the strands behind a flower found on the SNOWHAVEN COMPLIMENTS PACK.

Here are all the images I used from the CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY CARTRIDGE and sizes.
You can access the entire project in Design Space by CLICKING HERE.






I cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner and I have already started my Christmas Stash!!! I LOVE this stamp set and paperback, and it seems to be very popular in many of the orders I am seeing! I would make sure to get yours today! Thanks for taking a look at today's project and come back soon to see what other Kreations I come up with.

HUGE CRICUT NEWS

Hey Everyone!! Ken here with Ken's Kreations!!

HUGE CRICUT NEWS TODAY!!!


Here are some of the first previews of what is to come:



So Cricut has been hard at work listening to their customers over the past few months and they biggest request I know they have heard is the ability to Design Simply in a instant when and where us Cricut fans want to. As we wall know the CRICUT EXPLORE machine and DESIGN SPACE can do amazing things for us fans and crafting has been made simple for us! Well we just found out today about the new APPLE IPAD DESIGN SPACE app that is coming the week of December 10th!!!

We all know how hectic life can be!! I know that I work a full time job in addition to my love of crafting, so when I want to craft I want something that is simple and mobile. Would it not be awesome to be able to design on the go? Start a project in your family room on your APPLE IPAD while watching a movie with your family, and then finish creating the design in an office waiting for an appointment. We live in an age where we like the flexibility that our APPLE IPAD has delivered for us and today I got to see first hand what this new DESIGN SPACE application will be able to deliver for us! It is SIMPLY amazing. Combine some of the most popular features you have come to love in DESIGN SPACE and combine the simplicity of the use of an APPLE IPAD and you will be introduced into a NEW way to design when and where you want. 

Some of the new features:

-Ability to start a new project on your APPLE IPAD
- Full access to all your images (Both Cricut and SVG's)
- Open saved projects that were started on your desktop
- Snap grids and alignment tools
- Ability to design offline on APPLE IPAD (Coming in 2015)
- More Details To Come!!!

This is going to be a FREE app download for APPLE IPAD users and WILL NOT require the BLUETOOTH ADAPTER to be purchased to use for design purposes. I will be getting you more details and videos as we are given access to the application for testing. I am really excited to see and hear that Cricut is listening to all of their customers and taking actions on what they discover the market wants and needs. This is amazing news especially for people to have an OFFLINE ability to design and use DESIGN SPACE
