If You Tickle Me.... Layout by Debbie Sherman

If You Tickle Me...
Designed by Debbie Sherman

Hi Everyone! Debbie with you today to share a layout I created with the help of my KellyCraft™ Multi-Mat™ and Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square. The Jimbo Lojik™ Stamps have so many funny sentiments and they fit some of my photos perfectly.  I love that they add humor to my layouts especially with playful photos such as this one.

I'm working on several scrap book albums and almost finished with my daughters wedding album. The Multi-Mat™ and Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square sure made lining up my photos and stamping so much easier. 

I have a tutorial on how to create this layout follow the link below and thanks for stopping by today!

The Duck Stops Here Card by Monica Edwards

The Duck Stops Here 
Created by Monica Edwards 

Hi everyone here is a card I created for KellyCraft™ with my Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™.   I created a sort of collage with the stamp and then matted it against some matching patterned paper.  I used my tool to make sure the stamped pictures were lined up evenly.  Then I added some buttons - I am notorious for adding embellies on my card crooked and Iove my Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square because now everything is aligned perfectly.


KellyCraft™-  Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square, Multi-Mat™
                     - Duck Commander® The Duck Stops Here stamp 
Black card stock
Wood grained patterned paper, brick red houndstooth patterned paper
Black ink pad
Dark yellow buttons
Scissors, Paper Trimmer 


Ink stamp with black ink and stamp 4 times on wood grain patterned paper.  Cut out each image and rough up edges a bit.  

Use Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to align and mount 4 images, 2 over 2, on brick red houndstooth patterned paper.  Trim paper to create mat about 1/8" on all sides.

Cut second piece of wood grain patterned paper to serve as accent piece beneath stamped images.  Mount off center on the right upper front of card, about 1/8" from edges.   

Mount stamped images centered on card front.

Use the Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square to measure in about 1" from right edge, then use end of scissor to gently tear down on wood grain paper about 1".  

Use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align and mount 2 buttons to the right of stamped images on wood grained paper.  

I hope everyone has enjoyed my post for today and thanks so much fro stopping by!!

KellyCraft™ at Duck Commander® Licensee Summit in Las Vegas!

Look who #KellyCraft ran into at the Duck Commander® Licensee Summit in Las Vegas! We are glad they like our Duck Commander® stamps!

Dream BIG Chalkboard by Candice Windham

Dream BIG Chalkboard
Designed by Candice Windham

I love chalkboards.  I loved the easel-style ones Santa brought me when I was a child, even though it seemed that the legs fell apart a few days into the new year.  I loved hearing my Granny tell stories of carrying a slate to school on which she did all her work.  I love the big green ones from my school. They had the softest feel and the chalk would glide over them like it was butter.

My first grade teacher had a contraption that would hold several pieces of chalk at a time and she would draw bars across the board, perfectly spaced.  She really had a talent for this, and early on, I knew that I didn’t.  I would start perfectly level, then the upper line would start creeping toward the ceiling.  By the time I got across the board, it looked a lot like Mt. Everest.  That’s why I love my KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™ Docking Station. I get it right the first time, every time, and with my love of chalkboards, this is the perfect tool for me.  Now if only I could improve my handwriting!  Here are the easy-peasy directions for this Dream Big board.


Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™ Docking Station


1. Place the chalkboard on the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™ and line it up on the
top and right edges.

2. Determine where you want to place Dream and place the cursor where you want your lower edge. Write “Dream across this line. Tip: Write it out on paper first to determine how much margin to leave.

3. Determine where you want to place Big and
adjust the cursor where you want the lower edge. Write BIG across this line.

4. Add additional colors as desired.  If you have a multi-line phrase, just divide the height of the chalkboard equally and adjust your Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square as you go.

I have to say, this is the shortest set of instructions I’ve ever written.  I’ll be meeting up with the KellyCraft team in Anaheim this week at the Craft and Hobby Association Convention and Trade Show and will report what I see that’s new and really cool when I get back.

KellyCraft's CHA Booth

We thought we'd share a few photos of our booth display at the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show in Anaheim this week.   Our booth was a popular "must see" spot and many, many of the attendees had a blast taking photos in our duck blind, even wearing the optional beards, with Willie & Si from Duck Commander®!  

Our display boards looked amazing thanks to our awesome Creative Team's projects! 

Aaron Pichon and Jimbo Kelly hanging with Willie & Uncle Si! 

Cindi Bisson and Co-Host Ana Araujo from When Creativity Knocks hanging with the guys.

Jewelry artist extraordinaire Suze Miller Weinberg got silly and stated she needs a good way to remove that excess facial hair....

Willie & Uncle Si stretched their legs a bit to visit with the amazingly talented Ken Oliver at his Ken Oliver Crafts booth!  

Cindi gave the duck blind a test run on set-up day.

Lost in This Moment Layout by LaJeania Hicks

Lost In This Moment
Created by: LaJeania Hicks

We recent had family pictures taken and our photographer captured this moment of my husband and I together that I just love. I used the sentiment, “Lost in this Moment with You” from the Jimbo Lojik™ stamp set for the title. Of course I also used my KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™, to make sure everything was lined up perfectly.


KellyCraft™- Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square
                     - Multi-Mat™
                     - Jimbo Lojik™ Stamp Set
Avonlea Paper Pack – Close To My Heart (CTMH)
Slate and Whisper Ink Pads (CTMH)
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (CTMH)
Sparkles (CTMH)
Adhesive (Glue Dots, Pop Dots, Scotch ATG)


1. Cut the patterned paper at 5”x12”.  Cut a piece of Slate card stock at 5½ ” x 7 ½ ”.  Cut
the Green Cardstock at 7 ¼”x 5 ¼”.  Cricut cut the mats at 10” and 2 ½ ” Teal patterned paper,  off-white cardstock, and teal overlay.

2. Next, sponge ink the edges of all pieces of paper with the Whisper ink.

3. Use your Get-It-Straight Laser Square to stamp the images on the Off-White Cardstock using Slate ink. 

4. Align each element using the Get-It-Straight Laser Square:

- Attach the center mat.
- Add layers with patterned paper.

- The mats to create layers.
- Add photo to mats. 

- Attach the photo mat to the center of the layout.
- Use pop dots attach the stamped mat with title to the layout.

5. I added a few Cricut cut flowers and a vine to embellish the layout.

Happy Happy Happy Birthday Layout by Kristina Beagle

Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Layout 
by Kristina Beagle 

Today we have a quick and simple scrapbook page showing the fun versatility of the Duck Commander® stamps!


KellyCraft™ - Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square
                      - Multi-Mat™
                      - Duck Commander® Wood - Happy Happy Happy
DCWV; Silky Smooth cardstock
Versa Magic ink pad
A La Mode; Pink embossing powder
Cricut Explore
Miss Kate Cuttables; Birthday Cupcake cuts 

1. I started with my base 12x12 sheet of cardstock and found matching pieces to coordinate. As always, I began by cutting mats for my 4x6 photos onto some 4 ¼ x 6 ¼ inch mats.

2. Next I cut  a 12x3 inch strip of neutral cardstock to tone down the background and later provide a space to mount my embellishments and title, and aligned and adhered with my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square

3. I then cut a 9x7 base for my photos, lined up with my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and adhered to the page.

4. Next I aligned and adhered my photo mats and photos. I typically adhere my photos onto their mats first, then the page, but now have found it easier to do the opposite and line them up with the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square after the mats are on the page. 

5. To finish the page off, I stamped & embossed my sentiment onto a 1 inch circle punch from the same brown cardstock used earlier, and added my title & embellishments previously die-cut.
