Hi Everyone,

We have a new challenge for you and think you will just love the graphics set offered by our featured designer Kristi Dailey.

Come meet our featured designer Kristi Dailey of http://www.kristidailey.com.

Do you ever wonder where designers get their inspiration? Kristi Dailey answered this question, “I get inspiration from everything around me, including my wonderful husband and 2 silly daughters. My style is very whimsical and fun. With two girls, I find it hard not to make everything with bows and frills.”

Now you may have remembered that our last designer feature was a daughter-and mother-in-law duo, Krisit and Val, which own myscrapchick.com. Kristi set up a separate site “created to offer the world our beloved images in png format. MyScrapChick was in full swing before we found there was a need for black and white or colored images. Since MyScrapChick is all about patterns, we didn't want to confuse customers by adding them to the site.”


So what will you find at kristidailey.com? “You will find our popular images in black and white digi stamps as well as full color graphics for print and cut, card making and more. Our quality is top notch, our designs fun, and the prices are amazing!! We feel there is something for everyone at kristidailey.com”

Kristi has adorable images and digital paper for sale. She also has a new digiset character called Paisley you will want to check out.

Click on one of the links here to check out Kristi’s designs. http://www.kristidailey.com

Kristi is offering a special freebie for our challenge this week.
Link: http://www.kristidailey.com/FREEBIES_c_74.html

Plus, Kristi if offering a prize to the winner!!!


Here are the rules: You can enter up to twice if you’d like. The winner will be selected by random number draw. You need to use MTC in you project. You are free to be creative but must use one of Krisiti’s design in your project- either one of the freebies or one you already own from a purchase.

    I got the download and tried to trace it in mtc and comes in bad. Please explain how to get into mtc new to all this thank you in advance.
  • MichelleMyBelleMichelleMyBelle Posts: 4,348Member
    @tvsbay, these particular graphics were made for print n cut. Also, because they have a texture it makes tracing them a bit harder. I don't believe she has the digi stamp available as of yet. You are not required to use the freebie she has made available for us. You may use one of her other designs on her site: http://www.kristidailey.com

    If we have some of the cutting files, can we use those are is this challenge only for Print and Cut?

    From what I read you can do whatever you'd like, just use one of her files and MTC :)

    Thanks @k_lee for clearing that up for her. She's right, you can use any of Kristi's files or the freebie she provided. The freebie allows everyone to play if you haven't purchased from her. I bought the Paisley file and actually have been playing around with it, She is a digi stamp but I broke her apart (no harm done to her sweet little self) and colored the parts in my own custom colors in MTC. So I can still do a cut n print if I want, OR I could cut the parts out and do it as a pieced file, OR I can print it out as a digistamp and hand color it, OR leave it black and white. It is pretty awesome to have one file that can be so versatile.

    I guess I am first to post my project. I did this for my hubby. Inside it says, "For the next 27 years too!" This is one of Kristi's Fairy Bear graphics. I thought it was cute and dreamy.

    Here is my project for the challenge. I used Kristi's free file as a print and cut on the little basket. I also made a charm with the heart with "be mine' added.
    Have been wanting to try shrinky dink with the Zing so the valentine heart with the white center was perfect for a charm.
    Cut very well on the Zing!

    edited to add: the template for the basket was found at www.craftjr.com
    This is a fun site for a kid like me.

    @K_lee and @daffeydil,

    Both of you made very cute use of the file. I like how you both took a different approach. Shrinky dinks are just plain fun!!! Maybe this will get everyone rolling.

    I just checked out her sight and she has some very cute stuff, and very reasonable prices too. Best of all I love that her terms of use says that you can use her graphics on items that you sell (restrictions on # and type on her sight read it for info) Her terms are very generous. I don't sell much but I really like having the option. I will try to do this challenge :)

    Thanks so much for the challenge . I used Bryan and Neldas hearts . I first cut Bryans then in the center I cut Neldas then I enlarged Neldas scallop and put it around the outside. I just love this forum! Such talented ppl. Thanks to Kristi for the cute graphics . This is for my daughter. Bears are popular in our family. The paper is double sided. The background of the first picture is the flip side of the paper and then I tried it on white. I think I like the white better. Thanks too , to the challenge committeeimageimage

    Oh these projects are all so different. I am still mulling over what I want to do. I was thinking of the incire for a frame, @Maxine, you beat me to it. I really like yours against the white. It shows the details better.

    @Cutter_Kid I had a little chuckle with your "bee." He seems a little tough like a "be mine or else" attitude. That what makes it even cuter with the little friendly bear. :D

    @K_lee I thought he cats were so cute too. And I'm not a cat person. I did get her dog set though. The little one with the yarn would be cute with a caption with a Valentine twist on it saying, "I am 'yarning' for you. "

    Great projects everyone.
    Here's my entry for the challenge. These graphics are so nice - I might have to make a few more of these cards to give out. PNC with the Zing. I cut an extra nose out of cardstock and popped it up and "stickled" the hearts for a little bit of bling.

    I edited this to add a picture of the backs. I just added their names (don't tell -the A on Austin is inverted -maybe he won't notice? I saw it after I had all the glue on it - oops!).

    Again, all the projects are so beautiful, especially the lattice fold ones. This is my first print-n-cut project. It is from the Dog's Life set. I also picked up the Cat's Life set. I have never been a pet owner, but these two sets are so extra cute I couldn't resist them. Thank you to everyone who helped create this challenge. As a novice MTC user, I love being able to focus on a new technique each time.

    Sandy, the ribbon with the graphic looks so sharp and dressy. Super nice!!
    Nelda, you are making me jealous because I haven't got to cut and try any of those. I love how you jump full on into a new technique. THe accents with the red and the little graphic at the bottom are just WOW!

    Stampin, I know what you mean about trying to learn new things and the challenges are a great way to help us know our machines better too. I lurked on the forum for a long time before I ever posted and even longer before I could muster the courage to post a project. Then I realized that everyone is learning and encouraging together. I know I'll never make roses like Penny Duncan, but I can do my thing in my way and it will be okay. So kudos to you for jumping in a challenge after just a few posts. Your sentiment fits the look in those eyes so well! Your background is really pretty too, Did you ink or water color it??

    It's good to remember we learn more from our mistakes than from all the times we get something right the first time.

    Can't wait to see more=D

    Thank you, ImaCutter. The background is chalked (Pan Pastels). I forgot to mention that the font is French Script and the blue frame around it is from the Lettering Delights Simple Frames Collection. I print-n-cut the base phrase layer on white, and layered it with the blue-filled frame.

    Trish thanks I have really missed being able to come do the challenges...It always CHALLENGED me...(hehe hence the name right) . I never mess with paper much ..i have to be forced into it with a challenge but I always have such fun and Im getting better each time ..especially when you guys make it so easy. thanks to Bryan and Nelda and Kristi all I had to do was cut and put it together..
    @reba1 I cant wait to see yours! I never knew what it was called...but I really like the look.

    Yes, that paper is old! I still have some of the matching "son" paper. I imagine that it is indeed out of print now though.

    Well, for something that ended up being simple, this was not. I had a large PnC ready to cut with an idea how I wanted to use it. Then went to bed. Tonight, I sit down to finish the project, I hadn't saved the MTC file when I printed the PnC, so I could do the "C" part. Arrrgh.

    Start over, go small and fast. PnC with text added in the heart, 1.5" high overall. Box is 3.5x2" not counting the handles. That is Dana's box from the 2010 Christmas Crop -shrunk way down to cut in one piece from a single 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock. Yes, @SBryanW - filled with your favorite.

    I don't think I could have gotten any simpler or plainer. :(

    @Jana
    Congrats for jumping in. I think it is an appropriate masculine card- those are so much harder to do. I really like the paper with the x's. It reminds me of the hugs and kisses marks.

    @Reba1
    Very sweet. I doubt he would appreciate it any more if you had spent hours on it. The truth is--- he is going for the candy.=D I'm an M&M girl myself. hint, hint. lol

    Great projects thanks for joining in the fun.

    @CeCeCreates, nice to see you. Your daughter will love this card, I like the text paper you used.

    @Jana, I like the banner across the card. I also have a hard time with masculine cards. Don't know why. Glad you joined in on the challenge!

    @Reba, I have used Dana's box so many times also. And sometimes simpler is best, I rather like it. Now, if Bryan sees this filled box of Skittles he may ask you to send it to him. LOL
