Another project

Earlier this year I started using vinyl in my Silhouette Cameo.  It is so enjoyable and have created a few items that I am now selling.  At some point, I would like to be able to do it as a job, but for right now I guess part-time will have to do.  Here are some of the things I've made.  The first I made for my husband for Christmas. I used a photo of him from our Hawaii trip in 2013.

Christmas 2014 card #3


Christmas card #2

I got this idea from Silhouette Studio blog.  I got my Silhouette for Christmas last year and I've enjoyed it very much.  This was several different pieces that I put together. Cute huh?  This is one of my favorite cards I made this year.


Christmas is just around the corner

Good evening all!  I've been spending a lot of time in my craft room trying to work on my scrapbook. This year we went to 7 National Parks (Big Bend, Guadalupe, Carlsbad, Mesa Verde, Saguaro, Petrified Forest and Cuyahoga).  It's taken me a lot of time to get caught up.  I'll post some of my finished pages in a bit.

Now I'm trying to get ready for my Christmas mailings.  This is just one of the few cards I made using a Saturated Canary digi.  Now that the snow has hit Illinois, I really feel pressed to get these finished.

Good afternoon all. After a long winter, I dusted my Cameo off to make an Easter card for my mom. I also need to get working on my scrapbook.  We went on two amazing trips over the winter and I have a lot to do.  To see photos from our trip go to www.kkoontz.com.  My husband is an amazing photographer and I just love how he captures the beauty of our trips.

This is my Easter card that I made using my Cameo.  This was my best Christmas present - I just love it!

Ring in 2014

Hello all!  A lot has happened since my last post.  My DH and I went to Hawaii for two weeks. It was the most amazing trip I've ever been on.  Once we returned, it was chaos as we had Christmas upon us, about 40 cards to make (of which I haven't taken photos of any) and 3 parties at my house.  For Christmas this year my husband bought me a Silhouette Cameo and, honestly, I can't get away from it.  I just love it.  Below is my first card I made with it.  It's for my mom.  I hope you enjoy it.  Now for some lobster bisque soup and back to my craft room as I watch another 4" of snow hit the ground.  Lovely Chicago weather.  Take care all!

It's my step-son's birthday and he is 17.  Not the time for a flowery card, but I think this one fits the bill.  It is a compilation of several digi stamps I found from Make It Crafty - this guy is Urban Johnny.  I colored it with copics and found a great grafitti font to do his name on the wall.  Hope you like it.
