Made in the USA

Hello Everyone!

Who likes to wear their husband’s or significant other’s Tee shirts? I know I do! They are so comfy! My hubby is a machine operator for one of the largest tool companies and always brings shirts home these awesome shirts full of beautiful graphics. I always admire the artwork on them.

July is when my family takes our annual vacation. When I go and visit other states I like to go to the local craft stores there. Again, while wearing one of those awesome “tool” shirts and after seeing my friend Netta’s shirts (AWESOME), I thought why not make one to let more people know who BossKut is! I am a PROUD Gazelle owner and I for one would like to get people aware and curious to what a Gazelle is! This also gave me an excuse to use some of that printable heat transfer paper I been hoarding!

This project was pretty easy to do! I put a picture of the Gazelle and the BossKut logo into the software. I traced around the images. I also typed out “Made in the USA”. I printed off the image twice; once on the HTV and the other on a piece of scrap paper. I put the scrap paper on mat to use as a template and cut around the image and the font. Once I knew where the cuts were, I placed my HTV on the mat and cut around the images (Since I have not upgraded my Gazelle to the new 3point registration yet, I had to add an extra step). I highly recommend the upgrade (have you seen the projects using it! All I can say is awesome!

While the vinyl was cutting, I pre-heated my iron to the highest setting and set the vinyl. I peeled off the backing and my shirt complete!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! You can use your BossKut Gazelle to make your own personalized shirts for your vacation too! Remember to pop by BossKut for files, supplies and inspiration, Kenya~

Froggy Anniversary

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card using the Lady PK Frog and the PK Frog. They are too cute! I cut them out at 1.5” in two different color greens. On the groom, I placed pearls on his stomach to look like buttons. On the bride, I put stickles on her bow and red stickles to replicate lips. I also placed pearls around her neck and added a bouquet of flowers.

The arch was cut using the Lace Border.  I welded two together and scored it at 1.25” and cut several marks up to the score line so it would bend easily. To hide the cuts, I added two layers of pearl strings around the arch. I also added stickles in between the lattices for the bling factor. The Lady PK Frog and PK Frog are sitting on the second Lace Border that comes with the file. I did not have a stamp that says “Hoppy” Anniversary so I just stamped “Happy” instead. The inside sentiment will have some type of pun to go along with the outside. I used pearls to make the sentiment stand out. The mat was embossed with an embossing folder.

That is it for today’s card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Stop by where the Gazelle is 100% assembled in the USA! Kenya~
