John 3:16 Valentine Printable

I’ve been in the mood to create, lately.  Not just stuff I HAVE to create (cash envelopes or papercraft templates, anyone?) but the stuff I GET to create.  Like this cute FREE printable, just perfect for Valentine’s Day!

(Click to download in 8×10, 8.5×11, 11×14 and a layered psd file!  For personal use only.  NOT for resale.)
I was completely inspired by Pinterest on this one (a teacher made a bulletin board similar to this), and I was also super anxious to try out a transfer technique I took a self-paced class …

Paper Flower Pieces Tutorial (and a FREEBIE!)

Back when I first started creating cutting files to go along with my papercraft template sets, I realized that I would need to offer a free template so that my potential customers could test out their digital die cutting machine to make sure my cut files would work for them.  I had been playing with creating my own paper flowers for a while, so I decided to make it easier on myself by putting together a set of cutting files that could be opened all at once and cut all …

The Cupcake Shaped Box Template: Refrosted!

I am often asked which papercraft template is my most popular template I have ever created.  Without a doubt, it is my Cupcake Shaped Box.  I first released it as part of a fundraiser in May 2009, and I gave it away to all registered participants.  After that, I released it for sale in my store at The Digichick and it started selling like hotcakes!  I have had many requests to convert it to cutting files for digital die cut machines.
I’m happy to announce that NOT ONLY have I converted …

How To Add The Pinterest Pin It Button to a Blog Post

I admit that I am completely in love with Pinterest.  I could go on and on explaining what Pinterest is, but it’s been done.  Instead, let me sum up: It is like a giant online cork board that you can pin great articles, cool pictures and fabulous ideas to without having to tear a page out of a magazine.  When you see something that you like online, you “Pin it” to your Pinterest Style Board so you can come back to it again or share it with a friend.  So …

No-Sew Super Hero Cape!

My son is obsessed with Nacho Libre. It’s truly hysterical. He will start the movie and then act out the final “Big Match” (scene 20) wrestling scene against Ramses over and over and over. ACT out. Like, he will do crazy flips and throw himself on the floor and everything. He climbs up on the arm of the big chair, puts his arms up in a high A and dives off just like Nacho did when he hurled himself at Ramses.
He desperately wants a Nacho Libre costume, but they …
