Christmas in July!

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

Not a Cut Club Member? Find out how to become a member here.

Today I used a card sketch layout from the July bundle for my Christmas themed card.
It's never too early to start those Christmas cards.
I know the Gnome girl isn't an elf, but she looks like an elf you might find at the north pole.
I replaced one of the elements in the card sketch file with the die cut of a snowflake.

That's what makes the card sketches so great as they provide a strong foundation for the card design on which to build upon by adding or changing elements, changing the orientation, etc.

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

Food Fare Friday- Apple Strudel!

It's my design day over at SVG Cutting Files and
I am still going strong with scrapping my recipes this summer.

Today I am using a new file in the SVG cutting Files store today called the Owl baker. It is one of many new owl themed files released today.

For all the Owl lovers out there... you are going to love these new files!


This recipe is so simple and easy to do if you need a quick dessert.
The new owl file is so darn cute on this page.

The apples, potholders, rolling pin, bowl and title are also from SVG Cutting Files. 

Here's the list of files  I used today....


Have a crafty day!

Food Fare on a roll!

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

I am using files from the July bundle release- page layout sketch 32, and yes, it is another recipe page. 

I am finding using the sketch layouts perfect for resizing to my 8x8 recipe book and getting caught up with the many recipes I need to scrap. 

This reprice is an all time favorite and great for a quick dinner. 
Love the little chef with his cute stache.

Happy Independence Day!

I've been working on some last minute holiday cards to celebrate
the U.S. Independence day. 

I see that watercolor backgrounds are all the rage in card making these days.

 Therefore, I have been playing around with water and inks to see what technique I like best or gets the  results that actually are usable vs those where the color all runs together to look like I rubbed mud on the paper. 

I don't have watercolor paint or pencils so limited to my Tim Holz inks and color burst powder in my stash.

I got three 4x6 pieces of red and blue color backgrounds that I felt were usable. One I used watercolor paper and the other two just plain white card stock

 I sliced and diced these pieces into to smaller pieces to use it all up to make 6 cards. Actually,  I still have a few tiny snippets left that I am challenging myself to see if I can get one more card done.


The uncle Sam stamp is one from Stampendous that I purchased at Michael's a few years go for only $2. one of my favs in my stash. 


Here's a list of what I used....
