Hip Hip Hooray for a FREE Cut File! 1
Hello Queen & Co friends, Kim here.
Welcome to the Queen & Company blog. Today I am excited to share my latest layout with you. Inspired by the FABULOUS Pretty Presents kit, I decided to capture the happy moment of my little friend Callan getting ready to blow the candles out on her birthday cake. These dies, papers & toppers were tailor made for this page.
Hip-hip Hooray layout by Kim Watson
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I die-cut a pie chart, reason being is I wanted to use a pretty variety of patterned papers from the Pretty Presents 6x6 paper pad. The pie chart allowed me to use eight different pattern papers...the perfect way to create a colorful mat for my photo.
The sweet gift dies made the perfect accents for this page. To make them less busy on an already busy page, I made sure to make them mono tone in color: Pink, yellow, orange & green. To create the 'open me tag' I trimmed down one of the larger stamps.
The title is made up of a combination of three of the stamps that came in the Pretty Presents kit. By stamping them in different colors onto flag shapes, then attaching them to a striped drinking straw, I not only made a fun unique title but also a festive page accent.
Patterned paper circles folded in half and placed along the top of the page with turquoise bakers twine, not onto adds a ceiling to the page but really gives one the feeling of a celebration!
To make the page extra special I selected a mixture of pretty bling bits to co-ordinate with the patterned papers in each segment. The result is super fun, colorful & festive....Callan can't wait to have her page, in a frame, in her bedroom.

Hello crafty friends, Kim here.
Welcome to the Queen & Company blog. Today I am excited to share x2 card ideas with you. They are both colorful and fun to create with a clever little technique on each, you might not have thought of trying before. Let me show you what I created.
Best Wishes Sweetie Card by Kim Watson
Inspired by the stamp sentiment & the foam candles base, I created this card filled with candy swirls. Together with swirly lolly bits, bakers twine swirly candy bits & iridescent pearls, the result is colorful & good enough to eat! I love 3D cards with lots to touch & feel, & this idea does just that!

Cards personalised with photographs are so trendy right now & really well received, especially by family members. This card was one I have been wanting to try ever since I received my talk bubble die set. Max misses his uncle and aunt who live in the U.K so much, and what better way to tell them he misses them, than with a card with his cute face on the front?
The photo was trimmed to fit inside the die-cut area and stuck onto the card base, before I attached the foam front. By coordinating the fillers to match the photograph, they don't obscure the image but rather add sparkle & interest to the photograph. Alpha stickers, washi tape, iridescent pearls, a lolly & button...make this card fun to make & a pleasure to receive!

Have a smashing week further!
