Birthday Cake Layout

Hey there! Today is my Design Team day for SVG Cutting Files Cut Club.

Today I used several files from the April - Birthday bundle to make this cute Birthday page.

I started with the page layout template form the bundle, then added the title and several coordinating elements. I added a space at the bottom to journal what is happening on my photos that I still need to drop in. This is going to be perfect for my sons first birthday photos.

Here's a complete list of items I used today....

Mom's Day card

It's my design day over at SVG Cutting Files
I am sharing a new card base being released this week. It's called the New Bracket Card.

I did a mash up of svg files and stamps in my stash to add a little extra something to the pretty flowers and leaves I cut from the Potted Flowers svg file.

Any stamps in your stash will do. It could be just a couple dots like mine, swirls or anything to enhance your pretty svg die cuts.

The title was made by die cutting the word "Happy" 5 times and then stacking ans gluing them altogether. This strick works nicely for thin lettering vs trying to cut tiny pieces of foam tape.
Have a crafty day!

New water color techniques.

I've been playing with some new stamps and trying some new techniques. One of those is using a water brush with my Tim Holtz inks to color in stamped images. I've watched many YouTube videos and have read several blogs so I thank all of you for the inspiration and tutorials. 

Here is what I ended up with after several tries. I still have to practice a bunch.
