Christmas gift with Chris Durnan's Angel File

I used Chris's angel file - part of her "The Gift" QMC club - to make this Christmas gift. I cut the angel out of gold vinyl and put it on this ruffled red charger. The Gift QMC is still available, but hurry - you can find it here.


Christmas card with Chris Durnan's file

Here's a quick and elegant Christmas card I created using Chris Durnan's file - Side Cut Ornaments. You can find the cut file here. I cut the ornament from red cardstock and adhered it to a gold patterned paper. I added some green glitter glue and rhinestones - instant Christmas card!

thank you card with Chris Durnan's file

How elegant is this thank you card? It cut like a dream. It's so pretty on it's own, all I did was layer it over a patterned piece of card stock. Instant thank you card. This file is a great value, because it comes with two other card fronts - a congrats and I miss you card front - and an underneath layer with tiny stars! You can find it here.

This project was a year in the making. I bought these fake pumpkins at Michael's last year when they went on clearance. I bought the light (the kind that goes in the Christmas village houses) after Christmas at Hobby Lobby. And the "G", well it came from Chris of course!

The "G" is from Chris's file set - Pack Collection. You can find it here. I cut the G out of cheap drawer liner material and put it on the pumpkin. Then I used a craft knife, a dremel tool, and a metal finger nail file to first trace, cut and smooth the G. I cut a hole in the bottom and put the light in. Reusable jackolantern!

layout with Chris Durnan's SVG cutting file

Hubby and I went to Cumberland Gap over the Fourth of July holiday. I saw Chris's file of letters that look like pieces of road and knew it would be perfect for a Road Trip layout. As always, you can find Chris and all her fantastic files here. Another Quarterly Membership Club is getting ready to gear up, don't miss out!

Retirement card with Chris Durnan's file

I needed a retirement card for a co-worker. I knew immediately that I had to make this card with Chris's retirement file. You can find it here. It cut like a dream! And my co-worker loved it. Thanks, Chris!

thank you card with Chris Durnan's file

Aren't Chris's files great? I made these two thank you cards with Chris's files. The Thanks is from her Thankful Titles 2 file. You can find that file here. The sun is from her Lazy Summer file which was a part of her Quarterly Membership Club. I inked the edges of the suns with an orange ink. Then I used black ink on the edges of the patterned paper. Instant Thank you Cards!

recipe card with Chris's file

I just love using Chris Durnan's files on my recipe pages. For this recipe, I used her file, Chili Pepper. You can find it here. I cut the star off the top of it. I also cut the peppers in half, down the middle and placed it on the edge of the page. I'll use the other half of the peppers on another recipe card later.

Thanks for looking!

Graduation Cards with Chris Durnan's files

Here are two graduation cards I made with Chris's Graduation borders. These are two of the borders she included in May's Grab Bag. You can find the Grab Bag here. I sized each page border down and layered it on top of a graduation themed piece of paper, matted on black. I also cut a small graduation cap out of black and placed it on each corner. I searched high and low for tiny tassels, but I couldn't find what I wanted. Next time I need a graduation card, I'm going to make my own tassel out of embroidery floss, but I need to start working on them more than a week before I need them. LOLAS!

thanks for looking!

recipe card with Chris Durnan's file

I love adding new recipe cards to my recipe book. When I got this awesome chicken salad recipe, I knew I had to include it in my book. And I knew Chris had the perfect chicken I could use to accent it. You can find Henny Hen here. Thanks, Chris!

layout with Chris Durnan's cupcake file

Chris made some darling football themed cupcake wrappers for her Quarterly Membership Club. I used one to layer on top of the G for the title for this layout about our Super Bowl munchies. You can find Chris and all her fabulous cutter files here. I just love how versatile her files are!

thank you card with Chris Durnan's file

Here's a thank you card with another of Chris's great files. You can find the cutter file here. I cut it once in green, then again in red. I cut the thank you out of the red and layered it on the green. So quick, so easy, yet I love the look.

Card with Chris Durnan's Love Bird Card Set file

This lovely file is part of Chris's Quarterly Membership Club files. The QMC is still available in Chris's store. You can find the membership here. I used the gatecard option with this file. I inked the base card with pink before attaching the Love Birds. I used a rubber stamp to stamp the love definition on the heart, then inked it with purple to make it stand out a little. Another beautiful file from Chris!
