About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Kraft Korner on the web! When not spending time with my awesome husband or working, I love to settle into my craft room & make cards, gifts and home projects. I am going to get caught up on my scrapbooks one of these days too but right now, I am too addicted to making ANYTHING with vinyl. Thanks for stopping by - come again!

Here are a few ornaments I made getting ready for Christmas this year.  I got the plain ceramic ornaments online (they also have them at Michael's) and the Flourish Star from Kim Bright at Creative Bling.

HOME Floating Frame

Two friends from work asked me to make this for their co-worker that just moved into a new home.  The SVG file is from My Vinyl Designer but I did change the middle font so it was easier to weed.  Only the "Home" and the design on the bottom are from the original file.

Breast Cancer Benefit Items

Here are a few items I made to sell at a benefit we are holding for a co-worker.  The file for the "Fight Like a Girl" plate is from EmbNSew and the Cupcake Wrapper was a file from Kathy - both at the Smart Buy Gal message board.

I made the tumbler for the benefitee (who had a tumbler but her daughter accidently broke it - so I made her a water bottle too).  There are small breast cancer awareness ribbons on the tumbler that are hard to see.

Fun Water Bottle & Pencil Case for kids

Here is a water bottle and matching pencil case I made for a co-workers daughter. 

Floating Frames

Here are a few of the 50 floating frames I am making for Christmas gifts

Floating Frame

I made this frame for my sister & brother-in-law who are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary

Breast Cancer Awareness

I made this as a table decoration for a benefit we are having for a co-worker. I am making other items to sell at the benefit but this is for my co-worker to take home.

Split Monogram Blocks with Lights

This was a wedding gift I made using the monogram files I purchased from the download store at SmartBuyGal.com.  The heart is an image I found online and tweaked a bit for my use.

Tumblers - Girls Get Away Weekend

I made these for a co-worker who wanted to give them to her friends for their annual girls outing this summer

Noel Christmas tile 6x6

This is a design I purchased from My Vinyl Designer and made on a 6x6 tile.

Subway Art - Our Family Tile

This was an experiment I did for some Subway Part based on my husband & myself.  This is done on a 12 x 12 tile using various fonts and SCAL2

4th of July Tumbler

A woman from church asked me to make this tumbler as a birthday gift for her SIL who has a July 4th birthday. 

Colored Tumbler - Zebra Print Purses

Purple is my favorite color and I love purses so I made this tumbler for me to use at work.  I purchased the font files from Leslie on the Smart Buy Gal Forum.

Colored Tumbler - Horse, Cowboy Boots & Horseshoes

When I moved to CR in 1986, Jenny was the first friend I made.  She is a huge horse fan so I made her this tumbler for work

RV Tumbler

My Father In Law delivers motorhomes across the US when he isn't farming so for Father's Day I made him a tumbler to take on the road.

Nascar Tumbler

My husband is a Nascar fan so I made him this with what I think is a double walled tumbler with no lid.
I used Car Decals and Father's Day for the images

30 Rocks Centerpiece

I made this for a birthday party we were invited to this weekend.  The guitars are from the Indie Art cartridge the rest I did with SCAL.

Tumblers - Deer Scene

I needed a few gift tumblers for some friends so I tried a file from Tmonda on the Smartbuygal forum for the deer scene.  It turned out nice - hard to really see it in the picture though.

This is a gift for a friend that is beginning chemo this week.  He is a very talented musician and his nickname is "Rock Star".

The images are from Rock Princess. The vinyl is from H&H and the tumbler is from Big Guy Little Guy.

Canvas Subway Art - Baby Gift

I made this Subway Art for our nephew & his wife who have a healthy son to welcome to the family.  It is a painted 11x17 canvas with the vinyl and then covered in 2 coats of Modge Podge.    **The vinyl really did NOT want to stick to the canvas!

Quick & Easy - Candy Jars for "My Peeps"

I wanted to give some friends a little chocolate pick me up this week at work so I made them each candy jar and filled it with M&M's.

The image is from "Straight from the Nest" cartridge

Christmas Items for Open House

I am considering doing an open house for some ladies from church so I wanted to get a head start on some sample items for them to view.   The tile is 6x6 and the ornament is actually leather that I punched a hole in the top.

Both files are from My Vinyl Designer

Bumble Bee & Cheerleading Tumblers

Here are a few more tumblers I made.  The cheerleading tumbler is a graduation gift & the bumble bee is for an elementary school teacher.

Fun Glasses Holders

I found these fun glasses holders and decided to decorate them up for my friend and myself.  The Queen's has rhinestones also.

Cowboy Boots Tumbler

This is a graduation gift for a young lady so I thought the brown and hot pink would be perfect for her.

Congrats Cards

I am a little burned out on the traditional graduation cards this year so for the upcoming open houses we have for three young ladies, I made these instead.  The paper is DCWV mat stack and the sentiment is from Elegant Cakes.

My First Charger Plate - from 2009

This was my first attempt at a real vinyl project and I thought I would share it with you.   This made using a Cricut Cartridge and Sizzix Letters.  I didn't know about transfer tape yet so everything (even the bride & groom) was placed by hand (AHHHHH - was I crazy).   Anyway, here is my blast from the past. 

Animal Print Monogram Tumblers

Here are a few tumblers I made for gifts for Mother's Day this year. 

*I purchased the files from Leslie at A Place To Be Happy Blog (very reasonable) if you are looking for something similar.
