I used my cricut explore for this project. This is a great machine and I am slowly falling in love with design space. I love how this software does all the work for me. I can focus all of my attention on the design instead of the software and cutting. I sized the cut at 4.5 inches. I typed the sentiment with Cricut Cherry Limeade font from cricut and used the Cricut Pens to write it. The shadow behind the bunny file is from Cricut Elegant Edges  form cricut. I have listed all the supplies and links below for you to check out.

COOKIE MONSTER JAR

Hey Everyone! It is time for another Kreation by Ken's Kreations.

So yesterday I show you on my blog the Girl Scout Frame. Well once you have all of those cookies form those cute little girls, you will need a place to store them. This leads me to today's project:




For this project I found the cookie jar at Michael's. It was part of their Ashland collection and they were having a 60% off sale as of today's date post. You can also find this cookie jar at this LINK. I used the PPBN COOKIE FILE. This is a kit for a scrapbook, however I just used the elements I needed for this project. I imported this file into my Silhouette Studio Software. Then using the basic ARIAL font, I used the text feature in my Silhouette Studio Software to create the words "More" and "Please". I sized the COOKIE FILE to my desired size for the cookie jar. I utilized the chalk oval space as the back of the cookie jar to instruct "mom or dad" to refill the jar. Using the print and cut features, I printed this onto the SQUARE1 inkjet printable media 8.5" x 11". This is a printable adhesive backed media that allows you to print your designs on superior quality media. Once the design was printed and cut on my Silhouette Cameo, I arranged the designs onto the jar. Taking Ranger Stickles 1/2-Ounce Glitter Glue, Cinnamon, I randomly selecting chocolate chips to sparkle. I finished the project with a coordinating Royal Blue with White Dots Grosgrain Ribbon Polka Dot 1-1/2 inch 50 Yards and added a simple ribbon to the top of the stainless steel lid.

GIRL SCOUT FRAME

Hey Everyone! Ken here with another Kreation!

Well I am sure everyone knows that it is Girl Scout cookie season. Who does not love those yummy cookies. Well my Sister-in-Law works for the local Girl Scouts in their administration office, so this was a perfect opportunity for me to use the Girl Scouts File from Scrappy Dew! Here is how the project turned out. I haven taken the glass out of the frame to reduce the glare from the picture taken.


So for this project I started with a 12 X 12 Shadow Box Frame. I got the files for the Three Girls and the three sentiments from Scrappy Dew:


*Remember you can save 70% off a $30 purchase ~ NO COUPON REQUIRED

The files come grouped together. I sized the girls at 5.25" high for their body. Make sure to keep all the elements in ration together so the sizing stays correct. I used my Cricut Explore for this project and like I have said before I love how the software Design Space does all the work for me on .SVG. I size the files, sync the colors and hit go. AMAZING!! One of the things I love about my craft room is how my Cricut Explore and Silhouette Cameo work in perfect harmony with each other. I used the Cricut Explore for my girls and the Silhouette Cameo for the sentiments and title.    Since my Sister-In-Law works at the Spokane girls scouts I downloaded their logo, office name, and pledge from the Girl Scouts Website.


PROJECT DETAILS:
Time: 60 mins

Materials Used:
Adhesive: Scotch ATG3D Dots
White Pen: Uni Ball (For Eyes)
Stickles: Diamond Color

Here Are The Close Up Detail Pictures of The Project:

FORGETFUL CLOWN CARD

Hey Everyone! Ken Here with another Kreation!!

So I have been so busy making projects for my design teams that I forgot my Aunt's birthday. Well this was a perfect time to use one of my favorite birthday files from Scrappy Dew. My Aunt is a huge fan of Bears. She loves the cuddly creatures. And well, I love her. However as a bad nephew I forgot to her Birthday completely and to make it up to here I made a card:


To make this card I started off with a pre-designed card that I got off of Michelle My Belle's Creations Blog. Every monday she features a Mojo Monday Card file that she has converted and she allows anyone to download them for FREE. To see all of the Mojo Monday Card files follow the link below.



Once I had the card base figured out I needed to find the perfect .svg file, and Scrappy Dew had the perfect file for my aunt that featured clowns dressed up as bears. You can purchase this amazing file here, and do not forget that you get 70% off a $30 purchase on the Scrappy Dew site no coupon required:


This was also the first project that I used my Cricut Explore with the Cricut Explore Drawing Pens. I used these in the machine to write the sentiment "I Am Such A Clown To Forget Your Birthday". Now that cricut allows you to use any TTF files in their Design Space, it was super easy to write any sentiment on the card that fit my occasion. 

PROJECT SUPPLIES:
Time: 30 Mins
Machine: Cricut Explore
Adhesive: ATG Gun,  3D Foam Dots
White Paint: Enamel Accents

Thanks for checking out my project today. Come back tomorrow to see what Kreation I come up with next.
