I'm A Nervous Rex

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations. Well PPBN Designs just released an exclusive set to their monthly members today and I could not wait to use it. It was a set called to infinity and beyond and it features all the characters from a little well know show about toys. Anyways see the Supply list below to see a photo of this amazing MEMBER ONLY EXCLUSIVE SET. Well I took one of my favorite overlooked characters from this set and come up with this card to give to my friend who is always worried about something:

So this card features a lot of stuff. I have given you a supply list with all of the amazon links to help you out. I used CRICUT EXPLORE for this card. I am in love with this machine and it has become my GO TO machine in my craft room. In addition to the MEMBER ONLY EXCLUSIVE SET from PPBN Designs I also used the CRICUT TOY STORY cartridge for the Rex title and the Pixar Ball on the top and bottom of the card. For the card base I used the STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION CARTRIDGE which features a ton of different card bases. I used my new favorite card stock with happens to be CRICUT CARD STOCK. This stuff is heavy and amazing. It took me over a year to try it, however when i did I feel in love with it. 

Now for the sentiment I took the CRICUT EXPLORE and used the write than cut feature and wrote the sentiment "I'm A Nervous" in black ink using the CRICUT EXPLORE PEN SET. During the design phase I told design space to "attach" my phase to the design so I was than able to both write and than cut at the same time. I than Cut out the REX. I used my DEWDROP INK and DAUBERS to ink the edges of the sentiment and then I filled in the REX and the stars on the pixar ball using CHRISTMAS RED STICKLES. I used standard white yarn behind the sentiment on both the top and bottom of the card. 

To finish off the card I used one of my new favorite tools that I discovered form another Design Team Member. They are called PEARL PENS and they come in a wide variety of colors. These are amazing!!! I used these all over the cards base to give them the dots you see in the background.

Well I hope you like today's Kreations. come back tomorrow to see what Kreation I come up with next.

It's time for a lemonade stand!!!

Hey beautiful crafters!

Raven here and I am so excited to share with you all a cutie pie project I made for my kiddos. They asked me for a lemonade stand and who was I to say no. So I looked to see if PPbNdesigns had anything that would work for our project and YES was the answer. So I used three different files...

Cute Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cute Lemon


PPbN Whimsy Font

I added adhesive magnet to the back of them and placed them onto a framed metal sheet. :D

Thank you all so much for stopping by! Please add a link below if you've used any of these files or if you plan to, and a picture of your inspiration.

Campin Crazy 4 page layout

Good Morning! Well, it is Monday again and this is my post for PPbN Designs blog. I made a 4 page layout using the Campin Crazy file. I added the moon from Love You to The Moon and Back. I made the pieces from the Campin Crazy file and quickly realized that I would need  more than two pages.

 I inked most of the pieces. Here are close ups of some of the pieces.

For the title I used the alpha that came with the file and another one off my computer. I laid out the letters the way I wanted them to look and then offset twice. Hope you enjoyed and hope you have a wonderful week. Don't forget with the monthly membership you get 40% off all the files you purchase that month and two free files a day, that is such a great deal and I am really enjoying  all the free files. Since I am camping I will have to wait to make them until I get home.

A Dream is a Wish.......

Diane here today sharing another layout idea with you! I love scrapbooking and know I can get my pages done quickly with files from PPBN Designs. It is every little girls dream to be a Princess and my little granddaughter loved spending the day with one of her favorites. On her visit to Disney she had breakfast with the Princesses and of course, many photos were taken.  She got dress up herself so it was so much fun.  I love this svg file from PPBN Designs because it made these precious photos even more special.  This design is called A Dream Is A Wish and I decided to make it the colors of the dress even though my little one went as Minnie Princess.  This was so fun and easy to put together and all the designs at PPBN Designs are that way.  Do you like free? Well be sure to sign up for a membership for $7.00 a month and get free svg files daily and I heard today that it will be 2 free a day!!!!  Not only that, you get 40% off all other files.  If you love scrapbooking and crafting, then this is the deal for you!!!  Below the picture are the materials used for my project.

Super Exciting News!

Hi Beautiful Crafters!

HI! My name is Raven Baca and I'm new here...kinda!

I'm so excited, I have some awesome news to share with you all! I have loved PPbN Svg's since they began back a few years ago. At one point I had the honor of being on the Design Team as well. Due to health issues with my kiddos I had to remove myself from crafting for a while. Welllllll I am happy to announce I have the privilege of joining the team again. So here is my first PPbN Design Team project of 2014. I posted another PPbN card last week click HERE if you'd like to see it. Also, if you haven't already go on over and LiKe PPbN on Facebook. Nikki, the creator and inventor of these wonderful SVG's is FABULOUS!!!! But maybe because you are here, you already know that. ;)

Okay so here is my first project...

Isn't she stinkin' adorable. I kinda love her! I used the Snow Girl l SVG Cutting Files cut with my cameo. Then I stamped her up with a cutie pie Peachy Keen Face PK-1385 Cartoon Bombshell Face Assortment 
All of the paper used is Stampin' Up! and the sentiment I don't remember where that gem came from. ;) This was my baby girls card who turned 8 last week. :( So sad! I wish we could freeze time and they could stop growing up!

Thank you all so much for stopping by! How are you loving this weeks member freebies??? Aren't they FABULOUS!

Olaf HTV on Chevron Bow

Olaf hair bows

This is my first try at layering HTV.  I used pieces of HTV that a friend gave me so I don't know what kind it is but I choose a glitter white, a black, and two oranges. Well I decided that the 2 nd orange piece was too small so I just used one.

 This is how I laid out my pieces. I placed the mouth on the white layer since I was placing it on top of the black layer. I remembered to mirror the image on this but my first try on a shirt I forgot that step.
 My pieces cut and weeded.
 I placed and ironed the black, then the white and then the orange.
Finished bow.
 This is my first try on my daughters shirt. The file can be found here. You can check out all the files on PPbNDesigns.comImage 1

Well tis the season for Grads and Dads and now that my Grad projects are done I need to turn my attention to my dad project. PPBN DESIGNS just released a new image that was perfect for the vision of the card I had in mind:

I knew I wanted to make a card that had a Minion on it and the inside of the card it says " Dad you are one in a MINION". This project was so easy with my CRICUT EXPLORE, and took only 15 minutes to make. I used the new TALL MINION FILE from PPBN Designs and using Design Space just imported it using the Vector File and cut him at 5.5 inches tall. For the border I used the Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection for the frame behind the minion. this cartridge is amazing and offers so many amazing options. 

I used my favorite tools to complete the project. To give the TALL MINION some color I used the DEW DROP INK and DAUBERS. To make him pop of the card I used 3D FOAM DOTS. For his glasses I used the METALLIC SILVER PENS to make his glasses shine. 

Thanks for taking a look at todays project. Make sure to come back soon to see what Kreation I come up with next.

Hey Everyone! Ken here with another Kreation. Well I have an amazing Partner in life and I would not have this blog and be able to do the amazing things I do without his support. Well when I saw the member exclusive files from PPBN DESIGNS, I knew exactly what I wanted to make him to show him how thankful I was to have him in my life. Here is what I made:

So for this project I used BOTH my CRICUT EXPLORE and my SILHOUETTE CAMEO. What, they exist sometimes in the same room. YES!! I have to say lately SILHOUETTE CAMEO had been a little jealous since I have been showing ALOT more attention to the CRICUT EXPLORE. However for this project I needed to use a Print than Cut feature and CURRENTLY that is not available on the Cricut Explore. However I hear it is COMING!! Now these files that are used were FREE. Yes you heard me right!! PPBN DESIGNS now has a MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM where for $7 a month you get a FREEBIE file EVERYDAY!!! That is 30 FREE files for a month so with the $7 fee it is only 23 cents per file. WHAT???? Oh and did I tell you the  MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM gets exclusive files? AMAZING STUFF. Check it out! Okay onto the project. 

All of PPBN DESIGNS come with a .PNC and .JPEG file which can both be imported, printed and cut on the SILHOUETTE CAMEO. I downloaded these designs, imported them into my DESIGNER EDITION SOFTWARE (required for certain file types) and sized them. All of these files were sized at 3 inches while keeping the RATIO option clicked on from the original size. Once I had them sized I printed them on my CANON PRINTER. I my print settings I always make sure to set the PRINT QUALITY for the INK at the highest level to get the richest print. Then using my 12 X 12 MAT, I placed the paper on my mat, made sure my REGISTRATION MARKS were set correctly, looked to see the CUT LINES were on and cut the image. I used different colors of stickles glue to highlight the parts of the cutouts that i wanted. I used the following colors in the project: REDCINNAMONYELLOWCOTTON CANDY. For the background I took my favorite heavy WHITE CARDSTOCK, ripped it into pieces and ran it through my FISKARS PAPER CRIMPPER. Once I did this step I took ELMERS SPRAY ADHESIVE and sprinkled my favorite glitter. Then using 3D FOAM SQUARES I raised each character up from the base. 

For the actual frame I used a 12X12 SHADOW FRAME. I found the poem online on GOOGLE. This is just a snippet of the poem, which has a ton of verses. I wanted to separate this from the characters, so using different colors of vinyl and font I cut out the following using my CRICUT EXPLORE. How did I do that? Did you not hear? CRICUT EXPLORE now lets you import your OWN FONTS.  I love the SMART CUT TECHNOLOGY this machine offers and all I have to do is SET the dial and punch the "C" button. The machine does the rest for me! No need to worry about cut settings or figure out how to get the perfect KISS cut. Here is what I did:

For the basic text I used ARIAL basic font in BLACK VINYL 
For the words TIGGER and POOH I used POOH FONT cut in ORANGE VINYL covered in ORANGE PEEL STICKLES
For the words DONALD and DAISY I used  DONALD DUCK cut in BLUE VINYL covered in TRUE BLUE STICKLES
For the words ME and YOU I used YAHOO FONT cut in PURPLE VINYL covered in THISTLE STICKLES

This was an amazing project to make and my Partner Sean just loved it! I have given you the full supply list below. Thanks for taking a look at today's Kreation. Come back real soon to see what other Kreations I come up with!

Picnic Time layout

Good morning, this is Janice with the PPbN Designs blog post for today. I love picnics so this layout was perfect for my summertime pictures. You can find the file here. I didn't change this file other than the background paper and the borders. I do usually make my mats to fit a regular sized photo so I did change one of those, also. Hope you enjoy these cute little ants. I think they will be showing up on other layouts I design.
