I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Thank You...Berry Much!

Good Morning Bloggers! I've got a super quick and easy card for you today. It was cut from Cricut Hello Kitty at 5 inch. The Strawberry was run through my Zyron and then glittered. The stem was lightly inked. The tag that was cut from Nestibilities and then I added a K & Company ladybug and a bow. Words are computer generated. Super easy and quick! Thanks for stopping by, I'm going to try to get back this afternoon but if I don't...Enjoy your day!

When you say your words are computer generated, how do you apply them to your paper? Do you print them & then cut them out? If yes, how do you get it centered so well?
Thanks!

Hey Kelly, this card is wonderful but I want to know the same thing as the person before me about the computer generated words.
How do you do that?

I set the page size in a word document (I have Microsoft Home and Office 2007) under page layout to coincide with the size of card stock that I will be using for my card. Since most of my cards are A2, I set the size at 5.5 x 4.25 for the base card and smaller if I am printing on a layer. I adjust the margins also (I usually set them at .5 or smaller). Type in the text...you can move the words and change the font to where you want it to be on the paper. I have awful handwriting so I also use the computer to print the inside sentiment as well. I do the same but choose center text and it will center it automatically. On my April 22nd posting Have A Hoppy Day, I set the paper size for 1.25 x 4 set the margins at zero, used the center feature, choose the font and font size, typed the words and hit print...perfectly centered. I always do print preview to see that it looks the way I want it. In the case where it doesn't matter where the text is on the paper such as my Thank You...Berry Much! I make sure the print will fit within the Nestibility by making sure the my word document is showing 100% and then hold the Nestibility up to the computer screen. After I print it I center the Nestibility over the words on the cardstock, then run it through my Cuttlebug. If there are 2 things that I couldn't do without it would have to be my Cuttlebug and my Nestibilities. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

How did you get the black outline & the seeds on the strawberry?

Kelly said...

The Strawberry was cut from the Cricut Hello Kitty cartridge. The black was the base layer and the strawberry was the top layer, with the holes cut to allow the black to show through making it look like the seeds. If you are not familar with the Cricut, it is a die cutting machine, that cuts the shape, all I had to do is adhere the layers. This card was SO simple. Thanks for the comment, if you have anymore questions, just ask away! If you would like a personal reply, leave your email address and I will respond as quickly as possible. Please visit often, I try to add something new each day (except on the weekends) Enjoy your weekend!

Hugs!

So, how do you get your glitter on so nice & thickly?

Kelly said...

I have a larger Zyron mach (Zyron 500) that will accommodate a 5 inch piece of card stock. I put the strawberry through my Zyron machine. The Zyron machine covers the card stock with a thin, even layer of adhesive to which I added the glitter. I don't use it often but is just perfect for this sort of thing. Thanks for asking and have a great day!

Hugs :)
