Seaside SVG Kit - Assembly Tutorial

SVG Cuts Lighthouse and card

Hi all! I love making 3D papercrafts and SVG Cuts is my go-to source for fantastic projects!!! I love their unique projects and the how-to videos make assembly a breeze!!! I fell in love with the Seaside collection ..... here's my lighthouse I made from the set;

The card is the fish card base from the set , but I stamped an image from CTMH's Perfect Day set.... this lighthouse image is my favorite .I used my aquapen and ink pads to add touches of color and for a nautical finish, I added a Carrick Bend knot (aka sailors knot) to both the card and lighthouse. The anchor is from another SVG Cuts file ( Cape Cod) . All shapes were cut out on my Silhouette. The papers used are from Graphic 45 's collection called By The Sea.
You can check out SVG Cuts YouTube channel for detailed instructions on how to make this cool project!
Thanks for stopping by.... have a great day!!

'Tis the Season......

Hi everyone! I'm cutting it pretty close , but I managed to get my card done and posted in time for the current challenge over at Jingle Belles called 'Tis The Season To Jingle . They paired up with the DT at  'Tis The Season ( another great Xmas card challenge site)and they have a great sketch to go along with it.....

Here's my card....

I used papers from My Minds Eye.... love the vintage-y look. For my bling , I added a glittery Noel word , cut on my Silhouette and a  felt poinseta flower.
Well that's my card....I'm looking forward to the next JB challenge!!
Thanks for stopping by .... have a great rest of your day!!

Father's Day card and Graphic 45

Hi everyone! I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted! April is a crazy busy month in our house..... three kids birthdays and Easter , plus the kids were off for Spring break. I even hosted two card classes this month !! With the warmer weather and longer days I expect that I will have even less craft time. 

Today I have a couple projects to share with you....

The  first is a Pinterest inspired card made with Graphic 45 papers. I think this has to be my new favorite paper company ... I love their vintage style. The papers are Graphic 45 , the flowers , brads and floral epoxy brad are odds and ends from my stash and the butterfly was made with my Silhouette, I purchased cutfile from the online store. The sentiment is from C.C. Designs stamps called Sassy Sentiments.
I haven't made an easel card in so long that I actually had to search a tutorial. I forgot how simple they were!!!  One of my groups made this card last weekend and it was a hit! :-)  I found the anchor in my SVG Cuts files and cut several out and layered them for more dimension. The stamp set is one of my CTMH favorites Perfect Day.
Well, that's my cards for today... I'm off to enjoy this sunshine!!!
Thanks for stopping by today- have a great day!!
