She's in Love with a Bug

I was so excited when I found a fellow crafter who makes Shadowbox Creations. Here name is Melanie (Mel). I am sure there others out there who do it but I was excited to find a fellow scrapper & collage maker.

Here is a Welcome Spring Collage she created for the SVG Cuts Challenge:

And a Family Collage which combines scrapping into a collage. I am going to make one of these for my NYC trip.

Check out Mel’s Blog Here & Follow her! If you like my projects I am guessing you will her projects too! Have a great week :)

Sneak Peek & Free SVG

I decided to make a little holder for the ATCs I am making for the Easter ATC Swap over at SVG Cuts Forum. Thought you might like it for your ATCs if you are participating in the swap.

Here is a sneak peek (sorry can’t show you the ATCs until they are sent and received).

Initially I made the folder to fit the standard 2.5" w x 3.5" h size. But soon realized I hardly ever kept my ATCs to exact that size. So I sized it up.

Here is an inside view...

Here’s a look at the back of my ATCs. They are going out tomorrow and will share photos middle of next week.

Have a great weekend!

Spring ATCs

Just realized I never posted my Spring ATCs to my blog. These were for the last ATC Swap over at SVG Cuts and now we are on to the Easter ATC Swap.

I was recently introduced to ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) and joined a swap over on the SVG Cuts Fourm. Here are a few of the spring themed ATCs I made. They are 2.5" wide x 3.5" high and work perfect on cards, tags, & bags. Embellishments from Creative Charms.

I started working on my Easter themed ATCs for the current swap. Will share those soon!

A Pretty Purse

Have you seen SVG Cuts latest set? Amelie’s Accessories SVG Kit is fabulous! I made the purse from the collection and it was so easy to make and the flower was so fun.

Here’s a look at it:

And a closeup of the flower:

I used Cosmo Cricket Delovely line for the purse and Bo Bunny Dot and AC Cardstock for the flower. I accented my handle with a strip of Bo Bunny Dot. Pearl and gems are from Creative Charms.

I can't wait to make the Sabine’s Shoe Card.
I have a perfect saying for that one. Check back soon!

Here is a look at the entire kit:

Happy first day of Spring & Have a great week!

I Heart NY Card

I’ve been away from crafting for awhile but now I am back. I was preparing for a trip to NYC. We went this weekend and had a wonderful trip. Saw Phantom and stayed in Times Square.

I made this card for the lady that organized our trip. She offered to get our Phantom tickets and got us awesome seats.

I watched the recent SVG Cuts video on how to weld and create a shaped card. It was so helpful and would highly recommend you check it out.

Card is from Give a Gift Card SVG Kit. I also used a ticket SVG Cheryl1st recently created on the SVG Cuts Forum. (Thanks Cheryl!)

Here’s a peek inside...

Have a great week!

Lucky Layout

I recently did a St. Pat’s Layout at my local scrapbook store - the Crop Shop. They hosted a {Chocolate Crop} YUM! Everyone brought chocolate and we all scrapped all day!

Here is a sneak peek at the Layout. Please visit SVG CUTS for all the details.

p.s. Science Fair was a success - my boys got 3rd place & 2nd place! Now we are off to the district fair :)
