I've gotten so much better using my scanNcut and really enjoy it. I highly recommend it to any crafter-- it's that wonderful!
At this point in time I'm learning how to take a graphic off the net and in brother's Canvas program (free!) flip it from a jpg to a svg cut file. I recently did it for a card I had to make for a state swap-- One of the groups I'm in features a different US state each month and for Feb. it was the state of Tennessee.
After doing some research on the state I decided that I'd make a Whiskey jug booklet.
Once I had a drawing of a jug I had to upload it to Canvas and change it to a cut file, then make several and join together so in the end I could fold it up like an accordion and turn it into a booklet.
Once enough of the white jugs were cut out I was able to lay out my stamping designs based on the anecdote about the state of TN that I read on one of their tourist web sites.
|I DID ADD THE FIRST LINE: TENNESSEE WELCOMES YOU.|
After all the stamping was done, I added color and then put my sections together.
|This inviting cabin sits on the left bank of the waterway. The Gentleman that lives there loves to take an early morning paddle around the lake. Often times his wife remains home enjoying the quiet time getting some crafting done.|
Across the lake lives his good friend and some mornings he's out on the lake just before him. They pass each other as one begins his rounds, and the other ends his. His cabin is smaller, and he always says when he finds a good crafter he can make his own he'll add on a room or two.
The Boys Scouts enjoy a day of hiking the trails and learning to fish in the rivers and streams.
Sporting dogs abound as the water fowl are abundant!
The front cover, which I forgot to take a photo of says
Pure Tennessee Whiskey
I named my whiskey jug as such because in 2014 my friend came to visit and met my Springer named Jack when he was just 6 months old. I thought she would get a kick of the name.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my art and my little story.

Hint: I just completed and mailed another big stamping project to a friend, and I plan to
upload it here as well, just as soon as She gets it!
:) Have a great day!
