Kelsey & Muffin

What is sweeter than a little girly-girl and a powder puff puppy? This beautiful child is my cousin Kelsey along with her pooch, Muffin. They paused playing long enough for me to take this pic several years ago. Incidentally, Kelsey is now a senior in high school and will be speaking at her graduation May 24th. We are all so proud of her!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I lover layers, layers and more layers. I think that may be the graphic designer in me popping out, but I just can't help it.

And what is the greatest invention since sliced bread for all us layer junkies? Why, the Get-It-Straight Laser Square from KellyCraft. It makes lining up all those layers a breeze!

NOTE: Any areas that don't look straight are all because of my photography.

Here's how I did it, along with my error cover-up:

KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square
Patterned card stock, three sheets (Bo Bunny, Little Yellow Bicycle and Basic Grey)
Solid card stock, one sheet purple, one sheet white (Bazzill)
Paper scraps for die cuts
Spellbinders Dies
Spellbinders Grande Calibur
Duetica Lettering Arts Studio or printed title block
Adhesive (Zyron)


1. Here's my error: I trimmed the sheet from Little Yellow Bicycle too short. I could have just joined the paper back together on top of the base sheet and added some type of embellishment (ribbon, foil tape, etc.), but I accidentally laid the extra strip down and it fell 1/4" to the left. I decided to use it to my advantage and create additional interest by adhering it so the background paper showed through.

Layer the papers and photo, adjusting the beam as necessary.
2. I layered each of the solid sheets  plus one patterned sheet to frame the photo.

3. I printed out my title on copy paper, then taped a sheet of the patterned paper to it and ran this back through the printer. That way, my title block is on a matching paper. I layered it onto purple card stock and added it to the page.

4. The finishing touches were the Spellbinders die cuts. I just dug through my scrap stash to find papers that matched, cut them out and adhered with my Zyron machine.

5. What? I forgot to journal? No I didn't. That little half-flower is actually a tag that holds all my journaling.

If you have a graduating senior, what would be a nicer gift than a small album with the story of their school years? This page took less than thirty minutes to assemble, thanks to the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square. You could create one a day and have almost thirty pages in time for graduation!

Love is the Master Key

Created by Lisa Rojas, Stampin' Queen Creations
Give The Queen A Call!

Hi Everyone,

I'm back with another card created with KellyCraft Innovations Get-it-Straight Laser Square.  I decided with this post I would teach you how to do a card that doesn't take a really long time to create, but it's different in how it folds.

I love creating cards that are somehow different from the normal.  I love cards that fold different, are shaped different, or maybe a card that moves, or get the idea.  Each month I teach you how to create different types of cards, but always made with my favorite tool, the Get-it-Straight Laser Square!

Love is the Master Key Card


Copper Mini Brads (4)

Faux Quilted Baby Onesie

Designed by
Cindi Bisson, Behind These Eyes™

Using the KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square made it easy to align the stamps to create the large monogram letter on this personalized baby onesie.  I designed this one for my neighbor’s adorable new daughter - Autumn Elizabeth, and her mom and I agree she will look adorable this summer wearing this with little red shorts and sandals!


Baby onesie
KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square

Clover embroidery needle
Two patterns black ribbon, black ric-rac
3 Red buttons - assorted shapes
Westcott Titanium Bonded scissors 
Iron or heat tool


Wash and dry baby onesie.

Determine placement of stamps to create monogram letter of choice, using KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square  to ensure proper alignment.

Ink stamps first stamps with black Crafter’s ink.  Stamp.   Repeat on bottom of other side of letter. Remove stamps you layed out for placement determination.

Rotate KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and continue stamping along left edge of letter, following laser line to align stamps.

Continue stamping to complete letter, using KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to ensure proper alignment of stamps.

Heat set ink using iron or heat tool.

Thread needle with 3 strands red embroidery floss.  Embroider around stamped squares, using back stitch.  (Tip:  using an embroidery hoop is optional, but it makes stitching easier.)

Measure and cut black ric-rac to wrap around each sleeve.  Use Beacon Adhesives felt glue to mount.  Let dry.

Cut 2 pieces ribbon approximately 2” long, and 1 piece ric-rac approximately 2” long.  Fold in half, place onto monogram letter and stitch in place with red floss, using assorted red buttons over ends of each piece.
