More Print Then Cute cuties from Kadoodle Bug Designs

The last post, I shared with you the cute idea of the 3-D Print Then Cute files.

I had so much fun making them, that I made two more to share with you.

The first one I have for you is the 


What a cute Back to School layout it helps you make.

The paper and the Back to School and apple sentiments all come from the DCWV Grade School Pack.

The next Print The Cut file I made for you today is the 


The paper for it is also from the DCWV Grade School Pack.

As a reminder, you can have them printed and then cut them out yourself and assemble if you do not have a way to use the Print Then Cut feature on a machine.


After you cut them out, put them together with 3D adhesive.
The way to know how they go is the pieces that are bigger go on the bottom and then the smaller they get the closer they are to the top of the stack of cuts.

I hope you find the Print Then Cut files as fun to work 
with as I do.

PTC Cutie KaToodles Football Bear

As school resumes for our school aged children,
Football season begins.
Whether your student is in Jr. High School, High School, or college,
touchdowns and other football plays are on the schedule.

Kadoodle Bug Designs has a few cute files to
help preserve those memories.

to create a scrapbook page for football.

PTC means Print Then Cut.
(Note: it is also available as a cut file and digi stamp)
If your machine will do that and you have a good colored printer, the machine will do the cutting. Mine isn't set up to do that.
I had the file printed and then I hand cut it and put it together.
Once it is assembled, it has many layers to add that make it look 3D.




I used the football page from the DCWV High School Paper pack 
for the background paper.

Another file that Kadoodle Bug Designs has that would go very good with this theme is Simple Life: Football.



Hope your teams win and you have many photos to save.

things in them.

The swirls are also dies from Crafter's Companion called Filigree Flourish.
The paper I used was:

Kadoodle Bug Designs Bears That Care

Who remembers Care Bears?

I do and I loved them. So cute and snuggly. They were good at teaching about emotions and moods.

Bears That Care is a digital stamp made by Kadoodle Bug
that are much like the well known Care Bears.

I had so much fun creating the cards with Bears that Care.

The card bases were cut with dies and the Gemini from 
Crafter's Companion.
The paper, flowers, and brads were from my stash.
I colored all the bears with Prisma Colored pencils.

 I labeled the pictures with the names that the bears would be IF they were Care Bears.

Oopsy bear


Tenderheart Bear

Good Night Bear

Cheer Bear

Fun Shine Bear

Grumpy Bear

 Remember these are really the Bears That Care
from Kadoodle Bug Designs.
