Love and Miss you

Sorry, I have been MIA the last few weeks,  I have had a very sad 10 days,  and I am going to need some time for myself and family.. 1st my dads had to have heart surgery which was a bit scary qnd I went to WV for that, but then he started doing well within a couple of days and right now health wise doing VERY well,.. a few days after I got there I got a phone call my grandma was taken to the hospital, then on Oct. 24th my grandma passed away due to a split/torn aorta.. I came home Thursday for my Grandmother's funeral Friday and then Friday night I got a phone call from my dad, that my step mom had been admitting in the hospital,  this is a very long story and right now I just can't go into it, it is a little much for me to handle as I had just spent a whole week with her and had no idea....., so back to WV I went, her brain had been damaged to far for recovery.  She was on life support up until early Wed Nov 1st, around 2:30am, and passed away a little before 3am,  My dad will be moving in with me here in the next 2/3 weeks sometime after he takes care of his affairs and hers, and I will be going back and forth from home and WV...  So I will be extremely busy, and I am just a bit overwhelmed with all of the events taking place around me, but my FileKutz is and always has been a release for me, but I can't say how much or when I will be online..  Some of the DT ladies will still hold challenges and I will send them as I can.. but please don't expect to much from me for a few weeks.  I will not be keeping up with the forum, or all of the blogs right now.. as much as I usually do, and that will be it for awhile, unless I get a chance or just need a escape. 
My Grandma: Estella  





My Step-Mom: Linda









I really Miss and Love you both so much, Love ~LisaJane~

I am going to try and add the last thing I was working on "October/November Bi-Monthly Grab Bag to the store.. so I will post on the FileKutz Blog if I get it up soon. am sorry for those who already signed up that I had not gotten it up last week :(, I am just having my life turned upside down right now.  But it does have some super cute files in it for your halloween pages, fall and thanksgiving.  It contains 16 files for $7.00.

New FileKutz Challenge and Free File

Poets, songwriters and philosophers have all written, sung and lectured about TIME....the sweet rewards, the tragic loss of, the thief, the ravisher, the treasure, the pleasure.  This weekend's challenge also revolves around TIME.   LisaJane has created an absolute treasure of a file that includes clock faces, hands and numbers, even roman numerals.  There are so many options in this file, you will be able to use it over and over and get a different look each time.
My challenge to you is to simply create a layout/card/project that includes this file AND the word "time" somewhere on your project.  The way you decide to use the file is entirely up to you...use it as a background, an embellishment or part of a saying or title.  Time may be used in any form on your layout also....borrow from a song, a saying, or by itself.  (I am sure you can think of millions but just in case, you can find some "time" songs and sayings HERE and HERE .)


You will have the rest of the week and weekend to create your layout as the submission deadline will be May 23rd at 12:00pm EST and winners will be announced here on this blog soon after.  A random winner will be chosen from the submissions to receive an additional free file of your choice from FILEKUTZ.  **Please use the "add your link" button at the bottom of this post to link up your submitted project

 
For my layout, I kept hearing Cyndi Lauper's classic "Time after Time" running over and over in my head and I just love the unconditional meaning of the lyrics "If you fall, I will catch you" so I incorporated that into this layout about my son.  I wanted to use the file as a background so I chose the hands and numerals I wanted to use, cut them out and then used Black Diamond stickles on them to give them a shiny finish like a metal clock would have.  
I hope you get a chance to play with this really great file and enter the challenge.  And don't forget to subscribe to this blog so that you can be notified of upcoming file challenges to get you inspired and motivated to complete those layouts. 
 DOWNLOAD FILE HERE (password is clockiagreetou). 
Thanks....Sharon

FileKutz Monthly Sketch Challenge w/ the DT

Welcome to FileKutz Design's we are holding our 1st ever Sketch Challenge over on our DT Blog.   I am also offering this freebie file of a Swirl Background for the Challenge. Password provided on the Sketch Challenge post.


**See ALL the details and enter the challenge HERE on the DT Blog**
We will be hosting this challenge every month!



The File comes in WPC, GSD, SVG, AI, KNK, MTC AND SCAL2.  If you'd like a PNG format for digital email me (I just don't add them to the zip files as they make the zip so large)


  The winner will be choose on May 9th, so you have just a little over two weeks to work on your idea!!  

The winner will win 5 free files of there choice from ANY of Filekutz Design's. You can see all of my design's between these two places HERE  and HERE .  

To have a chance of winning this awesome prize, here's this weeks sketch for you to be inspired by in your entries... 



Here is a picture of the Cut File offered for this challenge:


How about some samples to jump-start your creativity! Here's what our fabulous Design Team have made so far this week!




We hope you enjoy the sketch and have time to join in the fun with us on the DT Blog!  


I do have some tips for cutting files like this, with lots of small parts..

1. Make sure your blade is sharp or new.. I use a seperate blade for cutting like this that I swap out when I am done cuttin detailed cuts. 

2. Turn your paper upside down and do a double cut, it gives smaller cut a much better cut and if you have a white core paper you won't see the white core cutting upside down.  (Just make sure you flip your design, if needed)

3. If you have adjustable rollers on your machine move them to be on top of the paper, to hold in place better when doing a double cut. 

4. Ungroup or Unweld the whole file (if it is large and has small parts inside) and cut the inside pieces before you cut the outside stroke/line.  This will save you from cutting up your small parts and getting broking pieces on your finished background and small pieced files. 

5. If your 1st cut don't come out well, inlarge the or outline the outside stroke just a little, then delete/remove the original outside stroke,  then cut small pieces 1st, then cut the new outline you made. 

6. Some machine's are just not cut out for cutting small pieces.. if this is the case with your machine and you can't cut a file of mine because of small pieces, email me and tell me about it, your issue and the machine/program you use, and I will see if I can redesign with a little larger pieces (I can usually do this in most cases).. as I have a few times before for a customer who uses a Silhoutte machine and has to cut smaller due to the max cutting of 11x8".

**Please do not post your layouts, cards or project here, go to the full description and post HERE on the FileKutz DT Blog.**

Two of them started out being off white so I used my stamps and inks to colorize them and add more texture to the layout.  Another one started out to be off white and I decided that a pale blue would give a bit more seperation to the zig zag border so I sponged some of the Tim Holtz weathered wood ink onto it to recolor it.  The bluish textured flowers also started off in plain off white and with my stamps, I blended them in with the theme of the layout.
