Squaredy Cats

Hello everyone! I have a couple of Squaredy Cat cards to share with you today. I just love these guys! There is something for everyone, that's for sure. 

For the first one, I used New Mexico.

Don't you just love his fun eyes! He's a little alien.
I started with the SVG Cutting Files Trapezoid Card Base and added the NM Squaredy Cat. I used a gray marker to outline him and a white pen for the accents.
I hand cut the sentiment bubble from decorative paper and stamped the sentiment from the Peachy Keen February 2013 SOTM set.

For the second card I used Oregon. She's got a fun Davy Crocket hat and umbrella.
I made this one into a shaped card in my Silhouette Designers Edition. I added some outlining with markers and used a white gel pen for the whiskers.
I stamped the sentiment right onto his hat using the Jaded Blossom Happy Summer stamp set. 

I hope you liked my cards and thanks for visiting. 
Make sure to check out all the amazingly cute Squaredy Cats at SVG Cutting Files.
Have a great day!

Also, just a reminder that the Back To School Challenge is still going on at SVG Cutting Files! Come play along for a chance at a gift certificate! You can find all the details HERE

Hello Princess-Elsa

Hello everyone! I wanted to share the card that I made with the Frozen Chibi Elsa. This was a freebie during the Frozen Mini Blog Hop. If you happened to miss it, there are ALWAYS hops going on. Make sure you are a Facebook Fan of both SVG Cutting Files Galleria and Jaded Blossom's Garden Of Creativity so you don't miss out on them!

I cut the card base using the SVG Cutting Files Oval Card Base and cut out Elsa using the free file. 
I added some white dots to her eyes and cheeks with a white gel pen. 
I also added some glitter to her dress and I hand cut the bow in her hair. 
I used snowflake punches to add the snowflakes and stamped the sentiment using the NEW Jaded Blossom Hello Hello stamp set. 

I hope you all liked my card and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop!

If you're here from STEFANI then you're in the right place. If not then you will want to start at the beginning HERE

This Blog Hop will work a little differently than our past ones. We give free SVGs all the time, and this time, we are asking YOU to give back to the Animals by donating to our fundraising campaign "Save the Animals". By donating, you can earn exclusive SVGs. Here is a look at the donation levels. And as a BONUS since your donation is going to a charity, its a tax write off!! So keep your receipt!

Here is an example of the donation screen.. When donating, please make sure to include your email address under "personal note" so that we can send you the SVGs that pertain to your donation level (it will not be published on the website)

Each person in this hop picked one animal to represent today. 

I chose to work with the sea turtle for my project to bring awareness about the Hawksbill Sea Turtle. It's status is CRITICALLY ENDANGERED.

Sea turtles are the living representatives of a group of reptiles that has existed on Earth and travelled our seas for the last 100 million years. They are a fundamental link in marine ecosystems and help maintain the health of coral reefs and sea grass beds.

I would hate to see these beautiful creatures extinct. You can read more about the Hawksbill Sea Turtle HERE

Now for my project...

For my project I decided to make an altered notebook. I picked up a couple of notebooks last year at Michaels for like .50 cents each.
I covered the book with Kraft paper and added the blue mat layer to the front. I also added some cork board to the bottom and added some brads to the blue.
I cut the mat out of burlap using the Layered Frame and Journal Die and the turtle from the SVG Cutting File Sea Life file. I stamped the face on the turtle with the Peachy Keen Piles Of Smiles 1 inch faces.
I cut the sentiment tag using the Candy Wrap Dies and stamped the sentiment using the Under The Sea stamp set. 

Thank you so much for checking out our Blog Hop.

Here is the line up for the hop! Next up is JAYMIE

Happy Summer Gift Bag

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Jaded Blossom and I am sharing a fun gift bag. I used the Happy Summer stamp set and Dainty Topper Die to create this.

I found these fun ice cream bubbles at the Dollar store and thought this would make such a fun little gift.
I added the bubbles and loli to a Gusset Bag and added the topper using the Dainty Topper Die
I stamped and colored the girl from the Happy Summer stamp set and also stamped the sentiment.
To finish I added some gems under the sentiment. 

I hope you all enjoyed seeing my project and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Wishing You Sunshiny Days

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Digi My World and I have a cheerful card to share. I used the Kawaii Flowers Digital stamp set for this card.

This card is so bright and cheerful it just makes me smile.
I printed and cut out the Kawaii Flower using my Cameo. I colored it with Copic markers and added it to a mat that was cut using the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies. I added some ribbon and bow to the center of the card before adding my stamp and mat. 
I cut the sentiment mat from the Card Mat Dies and stamped the sentiment from the Happy Summer stamp set. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Summer Time Treats

Hello everyone! I am sharing a fun project I made with another super cute Squaredy Cat. This one's name is Zanie! She is a multi-colored cutie pie! And I just LOVE her sunglasses!

This was a super fast and fun project to make. I cut Zanie out and added some highlights with a white gel pen. I also added some Glossy Accents to her glasses.
The topper was created with the Layered Frame and Journal Die. I folded a piece of paper in half and then lined up the fold just inside the the edge of the die so when I cut it out, it left the top folded together. 
I added the topper to a 3X4 Clear Bag filled with Laffy Taffy. 
I cut the flag using the Treat Flag Die and added a straw to it. I stamped the sentiment onto the tag using the Happy Summer stamp set and colored it with Copic markers. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
