Good Boots Ain't Cheap Card by Steph Ackerman

Good Boots Ain't Cheap Card
Designed by Steph Ackerman

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here again using some fun stamps from Jimbo Lojik™.   I just happened across this pattern paper and knew it would work well with the boots stamp.


KellyCraft™- Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square & Multi Mat™
                     - Jimbo Lojik Stamp Set E
Bazzill cardstock
Imaginisce Pattern Paper
Clearsnap Archival Dye Ink - Wicked Black, Mudslide
May Arts ribbon

Gather the supplies you will need.  Adhere the striped paper to the card base and put it aside while you create the rest of the card.

Using the Get-It- Straight™ Laser Square, stamp the phrase on pink cardstock with black ink.  Ink the edges with brown ink.

Next, use the Laser Square to line up the 3 layers of the card panel - pink cardstock, blue cardstock and boots paper.  Ink all layers with
brown ink and adhere together.

Wrap ribbon around the panel vertically
Assemble the card, then use the Laser Square to center the phrase on the card.  Use the magnets to
hold the card to the mat  while centering the phrase.  Place foam adhesives under the phrase for dimension.

Fussy cut 2 boots from the pattern paper and add them to the ribbon using a paper tagger.
I hope you've enjoyed this post.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

"Memories" Layout by Debbie Sherman

Memories Layout
Designed by Debbie Sherman 

Hello friends!  Sharing a layout with you today that was created with the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and the Multi-Mat™.
To make this layout start out by creating your background.  This is completely optional but I love playing with various mediums and textures just to see what happens.

Next step is to start layering on your mats for your photo..  I added several layers, you can add as many as you like or make it simple as you like. 

 After prepping all my chipboard I added it to my layout as shown and lined up my title using the  KellyCraft Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™.

Finish up your layout by adding flowers sprays and some embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by the KellyCraft blog today!!!

Happy Happy Happy "Triangles" Card by Martha Lucia Gomez

Happy, Happy, Happy Card
By Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a happy colorful card, that I made using the wonderful tool the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and one of my favorites quotes for life or stamps from Duck Commander® Wood Collection, the Happy Happy Happy stamp.

  • KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™
  • KellyCraft™ Duck Commander Wood™ Happy Happy Happy Stamp
  • Triangle Punch by Stampin Up
  • Round Corner Punch by Stampin Up
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Gypsy Road 300 Paper by Quick Quotes
  • Tip Top Taupe Cardstock
  • Rich Razzeleberry Cardstock
  • Tangelo Twist Cardstock
  • Melon Mambo Cardstock
  • Pool Party Cardstock
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Snail Adhesive and Dimensionals
  • Pink and White Baker's Twine
  • Melon Mambo Button
To create this card I started by cutting a piece of Gypsy Road 300 paper of 3"x5" and I rounded only the right side of the corners using a round corner punch. Then, I cut a second layer in Tip Top Taupe cardstock of 2-1/5" x 4-7/8" and rounded the corners of the right side too. After this, I used the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align the layers.  

Using the triangle punch and the different colors of cardstock, I cut
nine triangles to paste on the left side of this piece. I started to align them starting on the left side, keeping a little space between each one. After I finished this, I cut the the left overs pieces on both sides.

Then, I aligned the decorated piece over the card base, using a Whisper White cardstock for the base.

I selected a Happy Happy Happy sentiment from Duck
Commander® Wood Collection to add a message to my card. I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over Whisper White cardstock.

I pasted this using snail adhesive and dimensional to keep the balance of the paper and added a button decorated with a twine bow.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and I would love to have you visit my blog Stampartpapel here and have you as a friend, follower and subscriber to my following social media avenues: Facebook Fans, Pinterest, YouTube,Instagram, Twitter and Flickr. Thank you for stopping by today and have a happy, happy, happy week!!!

Hole in One! By Candice Windham

Hole in One
Designed by Candice Windham for KellyCraft

This summer, my sweet husband was able to check one more thing off his bucket list: he hit a hole in one on one of his favorite golf courses, Forest Hill, just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.

I wanted to create something that would honor his accomplishment, but decided to take it beyond a normal scrapbook page and frame it in a shadow box to hang in his golf-themed bathroom. That way, he’ll be reminded everyday that he scored the ultimate challenge in golf, one that has been accomplished by only a small number of people compared to the millions who enjoy this challenging game.

I called on two of my favorite tools, the KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and the Multi-Mat™ Docking Station to line everything up, just the way Larry lines up his extraordinary golf shots. I also paid homage to the game by using a pattern that has been associated with golf since it’s beginnings in Scotland: argyle.

I know this supply list looks intimidating, but I pulled everything from my stash, which I have been trying to make a dent in all year.

Here’s how I did it.


KellyCraft™ - Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square & Multi-Mat™
                      - Duck Commander® Clear Polymer Stamps, Set 1 
Cardstock, black, 4 ¼” x 2” oval; 3 ½” x 4 ¼” rectangle, 2 ½” x 3 ½” rectangle (Bazzill)
Cardstock, white, 8 ½” x 11” for printing titles and journaling, and one piece 3 ¼” x 4 ¼”  (Bazzill)
Cardstock, light green, 12 “ x 12” (Bazzill)
Cardstock, orange, 8 “ x 2”  and a scrap, approximately 2 ½” x 2 ½”(Bazzill)
Cardstock, brown patterned, 11 ½” x 11 ½” (Huckleberry Pond #HP102 Campers, Paper Loft)
Cardstock, argyle patterned, 11” x 11” (Nostalgic – Wistful, #NOS-222, Dream Street)
Cardstock, argyle patterned, 6” x 6”, 2” x 3 1/3” and 8” x 2 1/2"” (Unique Boutique, #UNI-237, Dream Street)
Cardstock, gray, 2 ½” circle (Bazzill)
Dye Inks, Black and Red
White pigment ink
Sizzix® Big Shot (Ellison)
Texture Fades Embossing Folders, Gridlock (Sizzix, Ellison) 
Circle punch, 2 ½”
Corner rounder punch
Standard hole punch, ¼”
Golf tees, three
Rhinestones, 1/8” diameter (Horizon Group)
Beacon™ 3-in-1 Adhesive
Crafter’s double-stick tape, ¼”
Hemp, natural, 18”
Shadow box, 12” x 12” 
Large dimensional glue dots

Tools: Toothpick, craft knife, ruler, computer and printer


Note: Use the KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square any time you are lining up layers or making additions to the page that aren’t angled.

The Crafter’s Tape is used to adhere all the layers and Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive is used with a toothpick to attach the rhinestones.
1. Adhere dark brown cardstock (Paper Loft) to solid green cardstock, centering the top layer over the
bottom. Set aside.

2. Print the title block and journaling block on white cardstock and trim. Sponge the edges of the 6” square of Dream Street Unique Boutique and mount the journaling block. Set aside
Ink the edges of the orange cardstock with red and black ink, then adhere the title block.  Attach both to the 8 ½” x 2 ½” Dream Street Unique Boutique strip and sponge the edges with black ink. Set aside.

3. Line up and attach the black oval 4 ¼” from the top edge and ¼” from the right side of the Dream Street Nostalgic-Wistful sheet. 

Place the page on the KellyCraft™ Multi-Mat™ and cut through the cardstock along
the entire bottom edge of the oval with a sharp craft knife.
5. Line up and attach the journaling block in the lower right corner of the Dream Street Nostalgic-Wistful sheet. Mount this sheet to the layered page from Step 1, centering.

6. Line up and mount the title block about ¼” from the left edge (on the solid green cardstock) and 2 ½” from the top edge of the layout.

7. Place the rhinestones in arcs across the top of the title block. When you get to the far right, bring your line straight down to the top of the black oval.

Tip: I placed a basic line with about ½” of space between the rhinestones to get my rhinestone placement, then went back and added additional stones between the original ones for more bling.

8. Run the gray 2 ½” circle through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Gridlock Texture Fades 
embossing template. Turn the circle so that the circles are debossed, rather than embossed and press the white ink pad to the surface to color the golf ball surface, leaving the indentations gray.

Layer the 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” white cardstock scrap to the 3 ½” x 4 ½”
black tag. Attach the golf ball to the black and white tag, add journaling and slip it into the slit below the oval.
9. Punch the top corners of the 2 ½” x 3 ½” Unique Boutique and black cardstock and adhere the layers. Punch a ¼” circle near the top of the tag, add two pieces, 6” each, of hemp with a lark’s head knot, write the sentiment with a black permanent marker and adhere just below the black oval with large glue dots.
10. Stamp the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp on a white cardstock Happy, Happy, Happy layered tag and place over the end of the hemp. 
scrap and layer it onto a scrap of orange cardstock. Adhere a 6” piece of hemp to the upper right back side of the layout page and bring it over the front of the layout page. Attach it straight down from the top of the page using a large glue dot. Add two more glue dots to the back of the

11. Add golf tees as desired with Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.

12. Place the layout in a 12” square shadow box and display it for all to see.
