  YouTube Tuesday-Close To My Heart 2017 Planner

Pin It

Hi there.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with a YouTube Tuesday video to share with you.

When Connie had her Close To My Heart Black Friday event, I knew exactly what I wanted!  The 2017 Planner!

Actually, it was all Connie's fault because she's been showing us all the great projects she's made for her planner and how much fun it is all the while keeping you organized. 

If one of your resolutions for the up-coming year is to be more organized, never forget a birthday or other special event and to keep track of important information, you might want to consider one of these planners, too.

Here's a video showing you a bit about them:

  Christmas Tags Cardz TV Day

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!

It's Connie here today to share my DT project for Cardz TV!

Today is the start of a new Cardz TV's Anything Goes Challenge and I would like to share two more great Christmas tags I made using products I had at home along with my Cardz TV stamps!!

 I used Mary's stamp set called Winter Cheer. The snowman image is one of the stamps on Mary's set. I used my water colors to highlight the snowman. This was a first for me..I love it!


The Penguin is part of the Just Chillin Stamp Set and the Gingerbread man and sentiment on the other tag come from Gingerbread Christmas.

December is about over!!! A few short days till Christmas, followed by New Years! 
WOW! I can't believe how fast 2016 went! 

Not sure about you, but I have been so busy this month, and can't wait for a break! We have 2 weeks off for winter break with my boys, and I plan on lounging! I'm sure Santa needs a break too from all his hustle and bustle! Rumor has it, he hangs out in South Florida after the holidays ;) 



I told you I would find him on the beaches! 

I loved working with bugaboo stamps this month! I uploaded the PNG's into design space, used the print/cut feature and had a perfect image! I am not the best with coloring in stamps, but slowly learning, so bear with me! I used all scraps from my stash (goal this year is to get rid of my stash!)

  Stella Secret Pal Card Bundle

Pin It

Hi folks!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards and it's my day to post!  A day I always look forward to!

I decided to share a project I've been wanting to make for a very long time using Bugaboo Stamp's Stella Calendar images.  You’ve all heard of the Fruit of the Month Club, the Wine of the Month Club and the dozens of other monthly  gift clubs.  Well here's my version of a Card of the Month Club.

Who is Stella you might ask?  Well. if you look in the dictionary under cantankerous, you would most definitely find a picture of Stella there!  And you might find reference to her under surly,  disagreeable and ill-tempered as well.   Stella is older--old enough to have an opinion about everything and no qualms in sharing it with you, whether you wanted to hear it or not!  And here's what I did using digis of this outspoken lady:



When I was young, about 7 or 8, I got a card in the mail from a Secret Pal.  I was thrilled to get a card like this and racked my brain trying to figure out who sent it.  At that age, it didn't occur to me to check for a return address or examine the handwriting for clues.  The following month, another card arrived.  The next month brought a third and so on until I got the 12th card when my Secret Pal revealed herself to be my aunt.

Now, about this card bundle; I used the calendar images to make a dozen cards, one for each month, that a woman "of a certain age", like myself, would appreciate.  You don't have to be a "secret" pal, but you're sure to bring a smile once a month to the recipient of these cards.  If you're interested in seeing the individual cards, including the sentiments in the cards, just click here and you'll be taken to my blog's sister post.



If you visit me to see more, be sure to come back to get all the details about our monthly challenge.  This month's theme is, "Baby It's Cold Outside".

  YouTube Tuesday-5 Ways to Add Foil

Pin It
Hi folks, Kim from Katydid Cards here.  It's YouTube Tuesday and I'm bringing you another video I hope you will enjoy.

Holiday cards, for whatever holiday you celebrate, are made even more special with a bit of bling.  One way to add that sparkle and shine is to use foil.

If you're just a bit familiar with foiling, I bet you thought it involved purchasing a laminator or a laser printer.  While both are excellent ways of getting a beautiful foiled card, it's not the only way and this video is here to show you just that. And it also shares some suggested brands of foil as an added bonus.


I'm looking forward to trying some of these techniques.  How about you?  Did you have a favorite technique from this video you're going to put on your "to-do" list?

See you soon with another video.  In the meantime, don't forget to enter our monthly challenge.  This month the theme is, "Baby It;s Cold Outside".  Click here for all the details.





If you get a chance, come visit me at Katydid Cards and say, "hello"!

  Miss Kate Cuttables December Challenge

Pin It
It's time for a new challenge over on the Miss Kate's Facebook Group.
December's Challenge is Winter/Christmas

The requirements for the challenge is to follow the theme of the month and use a Miss Kate Cuttables' file in your creation, including any/all freebies you have.

I bought this really cool shaker tag set from K&Co at the Scrapbook Expo. So I decided to pull it out and play with it. The tags are cute but I thought they needed a little something more...so I added some print n cut die cuts from Miss Kate Cuttables! That did the trick and made them perfect!!


Head on over to Miss Kate and enter the challenge HERE
The challenge will run from the second Tuesday through the 4th Tuesday of each month.  Winners will be announced, in the group, Friday of challenge end week.


I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!
