Using Kaleidoscope Kreator to Create Designs for Electronic Cutting Machines

I recently posted this ornament on Facebook and the response was overwhelming. I was learning how to use the Brother ScanNCut and decided to test cutting an intricate design that I’d made in Kaleidoscope Kreator.  It was deceptively simple, but there seems to be some confusion as to how I created the design.

While in Houston at International Quilt Festival, one of our customers turned me on to a great product called Little Windows.  It’s an easy way to turn photos into jewelry, but I immediately thought of using kaleidoscopes instead of photos.

We’ve hung these star lanterns in our booth at shows for a couple of years now and I’m always asked how I made them. After the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster, PA last week, I decided it was time that I sit down and write up the instructions. Of course, you will need Kaleidoscope Kreator […]

Kaleidoscope Flower Ornament

If you own Kaleidoscope Kreator Favorite Projects Volume 1, then you might recognize the techniques used in these ornaments. They’re a combination of our layered ornaments and our 3-D flower cards. You can use any digital image you’d like (flowers are particularly colorful), but I find it’s fun to use a photo of kids or pets.
