You've Got a Friend.....

This canvas piece was made for a little guy in my PATCH by Design program.  Each year we have a banquet and small show for the kids to share what they have been doing with the horses.  The show includes in-hand patterns, riding patterns, and a musical freestyle with a miniature horse!  The freestyle is probably the highlight of the show.  The kids get to choose their own music and dress in costume if they choose.  They make up their own pattern with a miniature horse.

This project started with paper and stencil designs from CTMH.  The stencils were cut from acetate alternative using the Artbooking Cartridge.  I used CTMH inks over the stencils to match the papers.  These particular papers were a special promotion back in the spring of 2014--Free to be Me.  No, I confess, I didn't remember that title and date......had to look that one up!  Sometimes it's good to be a paper hoarder since this was so perfect for the cowboy/toy look!

Woody and Bullseye were cut using Cricut Print and Cut.  I imported them, print them on glossy photo paper for a shiny look and cut with the Cricut.

They are galloping off to these fun challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge;  Kids
Bitten by the Bug 2:  Use an Imaginary Character
Scrap It With a Song:  Use a song used by one of the amazing DT Members on the blog hop!

  1. I love this layout and in particular I love that Free to be Me paper...I have just a couple scraps left and I like to use them with Pooh's family because the colors coordinate so well with the character's colors. I saw that you did a draw and cut with Cricut. I have tried this and not getting anywhere with it. Do you do two characters, one smaller than the other, and then have the smaller one be printed, and then the larger one the cut. Tutorial on this would be excellent. Or if you can email me at with some quick instructions maybe I can accomplish this. And is there any requirement on what type of file you should use to upload to cricut?

    1. Hey, Sue! I uploaded a video and have it working on my blog, or you can see it on YouTube. I hope it answers some of your questions on how I do this. If you checked it earlier and it wasn't working, please check again. I think it's good now! Technology…… when we figure it out! hahaha
