First Mini Blog Hop! with Krafting Kelly and Barb Dersken

Good day everyone! I'm so excited to announce the first blog hop done in collaboration with Kelly many of you know as the very talented Krafting Kelly from Finding Time to Create and the talented, generous Barb Dersken also know as (Lalalime) from her blog The Life of Mrs. Miles.

We've been planning this "Mini Blog Hop" for some time now and finally, have had the opportunity to come together to share with our visitors, followers, and friends some nice Fall cutting files.

This was also a little challenge for us. First, we shared the cutting files we designed with each other and made something fun and crafty to share. All sorts of fun Fall things were made. I have really enjoyed being a part of the mini blog with Barb and Kelly. They are wonderful women who give such inspiration and both are filled with talent. Wait until you see the fun things they made with the shared cutting files. This was so much fun!

The creative, Krafty Kelly created these with the shared cutting files:

Here are the lovely things Barb made with her crafty and wonderful self. 

With the Fall themed cutting files shared by Kelly, and Barb; here's what I created:

Napkin Holder
since having grandchildren we started using dishcloths as napkins. This way it's a quick clean up after meal time. Each of the leaves are painted with Pearlescent metallics water colors. They really shimmer.

Pumpkin Candle Wrap

These two pictures are a part of the Accordian frame I made with the files I'm sharing today.

I welded 4 pumpkins together, ungrouped the leaves and acorns from my Cornucopia cutting file to make a pretty Fall base for the pumpkin. I added some orange Stickles glitter to all of the leaves, grabbed my Copics to make some shadows and lines in the pumpkin to finish it up. 

Here we go.... these are the cutting files I'm sharing here:

First are these two Print and Cut files. Oh, you can also do a paper piecing with them. You can download both cutting files in .SVG and Studio here -------> Cornucopia and Pilgrim Turkey .SVG and Studio

I've already posted this Accordion frame on one of my other posts but today as part of our mini blog hop I will be sharing the Accordion frame cutting file. I've had so many compliments on this as it sits in my living room as part of  my Fall decorations. This can be used for so many themes.

If you started the blog hop here; you will want to hop on over to Barb's Blog: The Life of Mrs. Miles or Kelly's Blog: Finding Time to Create to grab ups some more Fall fun goodies.

Many thanks to Kelly and Barb for all of the fun and delightful cutting files shares. This was a blast. xxx- Debbie

  3. Hi Debbie,

    This is SOOOOO fun, thanks so much for us ladies having fellowship this way! Who can't love a RAK (specially when the day outside looks dulllllll and even snow creeping down our hills) - this made some sunshine in my heart!

    I really like the way you used all of the files, wish I could be a bug on the wall at your celebration!

    I'm hoping we can do this on a regular basis, if it works out! I especially appreciated that you took this time, I know you're really busy and having company. All your files were WONDERFUL to work with, they practically "made" themselves!

    Blessings from
