Freebie scrap kit just in time for Independence Day!

As usual, I started putting this scrap element and papers kit together awhile ago, then forgot about it.  Just ran across it this morning, and figured I'd better finish it up and get it online, or wait until next year.  It should be good for 4th of July, Memorial Day, or any patriotic holiday in the U.S.A., so I call it "Patriotic Holiday Party".  Hopefully, it has a little of something for everyone.  Included my usual motorcycle elements, but also have picnic, boating and bbq-ing elements.  And, of course, fireworks!!!  Got some good friends visiting that week that I haven't seen in a year, so I'm really looking forward to it.  Here is a preview of the freebie pack:
Hope you can use some of this kit in your scrapbooks, cards, or other projects.  And I wish you a great holiday!  You can grab the ZIP file here on BOX or from 4Shared here. The file is kinda huge, so if you have trouble downloading it, let me know and I'll split up the files. 
Free for personal use only.   Have fun!  -Kat

Engineer Boot/Biker Boot shaped card freebie!

Another "motorcycle enthusiast" oriented project, from me to you.  The biker (or engineer) boot.  Did you know the straps and buckles serve a purpose?  They are supposed to be tightened so you don't loose your boots in a mishap. Anyway, here is the finished card:
Engineer Boot / Biker Boot shaped card.

How I did this, was I cut out the template on white cardstock, so the inside could easily be written on.  Then I used spray adhesive to attach it to some textured black cardstock, and cut that out also.
Template cut out and glued on textured black cardstock.
Please note the parts in the red box.  I shouldn't have glued them to the black, as it made the straps backwards (which would only effect the curved piece) and the buckles were too thick to work with easily.  Instead, use the peices as a template, and just cut the straps on black.  You can use metallic paper for the buckles, or, as I did, use a silver pen or paint on them.  I used my stylis to mark stitches and holes on the straps, and ran it along the bottom to make a sole and heel separation. 
I'm proably as clear as mud, but I'm better at crafting then teaching (but I'm best at making a MESS!) 
Hope you can use this and enjoy making it.  You can download the TEMPLATE HERE ON BOX.  I'd love to get your comments!  Sorry I didn't make an SVG, but I'm having issues with my cutting machine.  
Oh, and if you have a Harley, you might want to check out this site: Steel Thunder Custom Cycles. Kat

CDAC challenge part 2

Got my second freebie for the CDAC challenge awhile ago, but I am having printing issues.  So, to keep from falling too far behind, I went digital.  The designs I used was from Back to Paper, and I will also be posting it Crafter's Digital Art Center.  Here it is.  What do you think?

Been trying to get my veggie garden planted between all the weather, but hopefully I'll be back soon with another freebie of some kind.  Meanwhile, create and enjoy!  - Kat
