Today Katrina Hunt is Making Memories' guest designer.
I am so excited to be creating for the
Making Memories Blog and sharing my projects with everyone. I hope you enjoy
what I have created with Making Memoreis' Just Chillin’ Girl Collection and my Slice, which I absolutely LOVE!. The little machine packs a powerful punch!
See that cloud at the top in the corner and then the
butterfly at the bottom. Those were created with the Slice from Shrinky Dink
film!! How cool is that?! I cut both images at 4 inches and then stamped on the
film before shrinking with solvent ink. I did discover that the clear film cuts
easier than the bright white. And I did cut the image a couple of times before
moving my machine, just to make sure the cut went completely thru since the
film is slightly thicker.
When I was making the flowers I decided that I wanted some flowers to look like those rose type flowers that are all the rage right now….so I went to work trying to figure out how to do them! I first cut from the Basics 1 design card two of the flowers that have the open center, glued them back to back (I had cut single sided paper), cut one side (between the petals) completely to the center and started rolling it on itself, let up a little tension and glued at the end. Then I decided I wanted to play with some fabric, since I found some that matched the papers almost perfectly! I used the Slice fusible web to attach to my fabric and then the Slice spray adhesive to tack it to my Slice Hands Free mat before cutting. Remember that you cut with the fabric face down on the mat. I cut out two striped flowers and did the same as above. I added some memory thread to the middle for some detail. The other flower was cut out twice from the Wedding card and sizes from 1-3 inches. I then used fabric stiffener to make it hold it’s shape and then put the paper flower in the middle of this.
Then my creative mojo was flowing, so I created an easel card using the Home Sweet Home design card. If you do a search on the internet for directions, easel cards are really easy to create. And they look so pretty sitting around!
