jackolantern with Chris Durnan's file

This project was a year in the making. I bought these fake pumpkins at Michael's last year when they went on clearance. I bought the light (the kind that goes in the Christmas village houses) after Christmas at Hobby Lobby. And the "G", well it came from Chris of course!

The "G" is from Chris's file set - Pack Collection. You can find it here. I cut the G out of cheap drawer liner material and put it on the pumpkin. Then I used a craft knife, a dremel tool, and a metal finger nail file to first trace, cut and smooth the G. I cut a hole in the bottom and put the light in. Reusable jackolantern!

VDBC 3rd Anniversary Challenge

Another challenge being held over at VDBC is being run by Jan of Sam and Hailey Designs. It is a Colour Challenge. Well, you all should know that I love Colour Challenges.... seems like I just need someone to present me with a colour palette and I am rushing off to start up Photoshop and see what I can come up with.

and with a new digital scrapbooking kit and a file from Chris, I created this layout. A few years ago we went on a boat cruise out of Victor Harbour, South Australia. We were hoping to see Whales, but got Dolphins and Seal Lions instead. We still had a wonderful time, I love being out on the water, and if you look closely (and I mean really closely LOL), you can see two dolphins surfacing in my pic! The star speckled Dolphin is CD00584 - Sparkle Dolphins available HERE . I have added styles and textures to Chris's file to create the effect you see here.

Created to show that Cutter files can be used very successfully digitally.
Thanks for looking,
cheers, caz

Halloween 2009 using #CD00770

I used patterned paper I have been hoarding *smile* from My Minds Eye and Making Memories.  The crow was cut from Visual Designs by Chris #CD00770.  I added some black bling for his eye and a few other places.  I love using photo collages!  The layout sort of evolved.  I accidentally cut the upper right paper too short which led to the black strip of paper.  So I matched it on the other side with an orange strip to ground the pumpkins and the crow.  The strips led to the buttons (black threaded with orange and orange threaded with black).  Which led to the black swirly bling.  Love a happy accident!
This catches up my Halloween album!!
