Back to School

Hi Everyone - we started back to school this week. I made this cute little school house for a teacher friend of mine. It features Creative Charms goodies ~ check out their blog for all the details.

The schoolhouse is from SVG Cuts - School Days SVG Kit. It was so incredibly easy to cut and assemble!

Stop back soon - I have more Back To School Goodies to share. Have an SVG Cuts Design Team project that I made for my sons’ teachers.

If you have little (or big) ones heading back to school - hope it is a great experience!

Contest Winner

And the winner is.....
Therese said...

I think it's the Peony Cottage set...maybe a haunted house???

No one guessed the set so I put everyone in a random drawing - I used the Taylor’s Team SVG Collection for my latest project. My niece needed a baby name collage for a shower. I checked out the registry online and here is what a saw:

Don't you just love the colors & design of this room? I went to work and searched out the perfect SVG Cuts Collection and Taylor’s Team was a perfect match. I used AC Cardstock from Pumpkin Cart Crafts and did not add a whole lot of embellishments - just a bit of twine. The space on the right is for the baby-to-be’s photo.

This collage came together quite nicely - got it all done in less than 2 hours!

Here is my collage along with a few closeups:

I used lots of foam core in between the layers to add dimension. The frame is from Michaels - it is 12x12.

Thanks again to everyone who played along and I'll be sending you your SVG Cuts $10 gift certificate Therese!

It’s All About the Family

We recently got together for our Family Reunion. I created this layout to capture the fun of the day. Also featured the oldest and youngest members of the family on my layout.

I went Cricut-less for this project (I know not like me!) I used lots of stitching and the Creative Charms Deal of Month from May (Sparkling Garden of Delight) for this layout. All the Kits & Deals of the Month are 10% Off.

I used papers from DCWV Green Stack for this layout. I cut the flower from patterned paper to add as an accent. Here are a few closeups:

Isn't the little owl cute? And love how the Creative Charms are the perfect accent.

DCWV is having a sketch challenge over on their blog and I'm going to play along. Sketch is from Susan at Sketch Savvy.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to enter my contest before the end of today. Winner will be announced Thursday. See my prior post for the details.

Collage with 3D Flowers

Hi everyone - I did this collage awhile back and when I recently saw the re-release of SVG Cuts 3D Flowers Part 1 and the JUGS Challenge thought I would post it. The challenge is to create a project using fabric.

This was my first time trying the 3D flowers from SVG CUTs and they were so fun to make. The purple flowers are the Begonia flower from the collection - it was a close match to the flower in the bouquets.

I made the orange flower buds from the actual bridesmaid's dress material and the calla lily is a silk flower from Michaels.

I struggled a bit with the orange and purple color combo - I think the Creative Charms Vintage Brads and gradient gems on my hydrangea helped to tie it all together.

Check out Mary's video here on how to assemble the 3D Flowers. Here is photo of the Kit:

Have a great day!
