I'm a Stinker

So did you guys get any April Fool's jokes played on you yesterday? April Fool's is a difficult day for me because I tend to believe anything is possible. LOL

I have been organizing and sorting. Fun! I got a 3-ring binder that I dedicated to my SVG cuts. I love Miss Kate Cuttables! So I printed off the cut files I bought last week as well as the daily freebies I've accumulated. I added some zippies (zip lock bags) in there with the cuts I've already done. Added the Cardz TV Stamps PDF file so I can read through the list for a sentiment stamp I want to use instead of flipping through all my stamp sets. Added a section for Scrapping Bug Designs for the SVG cuts I have, and a section for Lettering Delights SVGs for the ones I own. I still need to create some tab dividers to skip to each section easily. I'll probably work on that tomorrow. Here's just a few of the pages to give you a picture in your head of what I'm babbling on about. :)

I made a quick and easy card to show you today. Not a lot going on. No embellishments were added, just SVG cuts and pattern paper. I want you to pay close attention to the cheeks on that skunk. See his little white freckles? It just amazes me that the Cameo can cut such tiny little holes with precision. I am loving my Cameo!

I have loved this cute little skunk ever since I saw my friend, Tracy, make a layout with it. You can see her layout post...HERE. (Leave her some comment love, and tell her I sent you over.) 

The only part of this cut that was not part of the Miss Kate Cuttables cut collection is the grass. There is grass in that collection but for some reason (I am still learning and don't know what I'm doing) the grass would not cut, so I went with some grass from the Silhouette online store. Works for me! The darling skunk was added with foam tape for dimension. Background flower paper from K&C Tim Coffey "Blossomwood." Cardz TV Stamps "Critter Captions" for sentiment stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

P.S. I've had this K&C Blossomwood paper for about 2 years now. I love it. I need to stop hoarding it!

  1. I love this organization! I've been collecting free svgs for awhile with the plan to get a Cameo in May or June, and I've been trying to figure out how to keep track of what I have- this is a great idea!

  2. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements.

    My brain must be switched off. I stared are your beautifully cut card for ages trying to see the humour and then it clicked. Skunk - stinker........ Doh! LOL

    Good luck!
