Wild Child Birthday

I'm so lovin' the Wild Child Collection from SVG Cuts!!  Having so much fun creating new eyes to go with this set, just love how the eyes look on this cute little lion.  This collection makes such adorable children's birthday cards, so simple and cute.  For the eyes I did a print n cut using my Sizzix Eclips and eCal and then colored with ProMarkers.

Baby's 1st Birthday

I just got back from our vacation down in Charleston, SC, we had such a wonderful time.  My son Rory went to the College of Charleston and we fell in love with it, we hadn't been back since he graduated in 2008.  This collection Wild Child from SVG Cuts came out while we were vacationing, I think it's just adorable!  I couldn't wait and make this baby's 1st birthday card using the elephant, isn't he so cute!!  I also used the Birthday Elements and My Happy Garden Hideaway Collections.  I did a print n cut using ecals software with the eyes which I made and the Baby's 1st Birthday.

Sunny Day

I just loved this card I saw over at Ellen Hutson LLC, created by Maile Belles and wanted to make something like it.  Instead of a stamp I used these echinacea from SVG Cuts Veggie Garden part II collection.  I also used the sun from the Shaped Cards and Envelope kit to cut off the corner using the path feature in the ecals software.  I did a print and cut for the Have A Sunny Day so the cutout would be placed perfectly.  The original card is a great way of using your scrap paper up, I have tons so I'm definitely going to be using that technique.  All was created using my new Sizzix Eclips which is such a dream machine!

Tea For You and Me Birthday Wishes

The new kit Tea For You and Me, at SVG Cuts is just such a  beautiful kit and can be used for so many occasions.  It has a teapot, teacup and saucer with a cute little 3D spoon, a teabag dispenser, a teabag carton and a card that holds a teabag.  I used the card from the kit without the teabag holder to make this birthday wishes card.  The flowers are from the Veggie Garden collection part 1, there are a nice assortment of garden svg's in both the 1 & 2 of the veggie collections.  The butterfly is from the Mothers Garden kit and the leaf is a freebie from SVG Cuts blog called tropical leaf.  The background paper is from Echo Parks Digital pack This & That Graceful and the doily I cut from a light green vellum so you could see the paper under it.

Tea Time

The Sizzix Eclips is a dream machine, it cuts beautifully, even the smallest detail cuts.  I can't wait to really play with it this weekend.  I put this card together using the flower and leaves from SVG Cuts Happy Birthday To You kit and the border from the Poplar Street Tulips kit and one of the doilies from the Doilies Collection.  I used glimmer mist on the flower and border and my homemade glimmer mist on the doily.  I inked the petals lightly with tattered rose distress ink.  I really love this soft Victorian feel of this card.

First Sizzix Eclips Card

I'm so excited, I won the SVG Cuts Spring Challenge a couple of weeks ago and the prize was the Sizzix Eclips and the ECAL's Software, well it came yesterday and I totally love this machine.  Here is my first project with it, of course it had to be a card.  All the cuts are from SVG Cuts, the leaf shaped card is from the Shaped Cards and Envelopes kit and the flowers and butterfly are from the Mothers Garden kit.  I did a print n cut for the Happy Birthday and it worked perfectly!  The cuts are nice and clean, the paper pulled right up and the pieces stayed on the mat.  My first cut was a doily at 3" and it came out beautifully, I'm very happy with the Eclips.

Dino Cupcake Box

Looking at the simple one piece box from SVG Cuts new kit 3D Numbers Party, I thought it would make such a cute single cupcake dino box with the flap forming the month.  I just had to make one after seeing Lauralyn Campagna-Jolly's single cupcake box using a one piece box from another kit, very clever!

I used some of the pieces from the dinosaur card in the Waterfall Cards kit, the Toad from the Cuddly Animals Part II collection and a couple of pieces from the Birthday Dinos collection to create the dinosaur.  The cute little hat and pom pom are also from the 3D Numbers Party.  The eyes I created in MTC and did a print n cut of just the dinosaur head and colored in the pieces with ProMarkers.

I used the cupcake insert that goes with the cupcake box that is also in this kit and edited it to form a single cupcake holder that fits inside.

I think this would be so awesome for a little boys birthday party!

Party Invitation

SVG Cuts came out with a 3D Numbers Party kit to match the 3D Letters.  Besides the 3D numbers you get an awesome cupcake box with inserts, party hat, a one piece box and a banner, perfect for a Birthday party, Graduation or any other occasion.  I love making cards and I thought an invitation would go perfectly with this kit, so I took the numbers and the party hat with the flower and created this card.  I also used the word PARTY from the Everyday Cards kit and did a print n cut for the label.  The paper is from Echo Park's Digital Pack Times & Seasons.

Box of Goodies

The box from the new kit Mother's Garden is perfect for some sweet treats inside.  I didn't have candy but I had some cake balls and I could fit ten.  I love the design of this box and the elements that come with it, a perfect little gift box.  The cake balls were made in my new babycakes machine, I think I'm going to like this machine very much!

All the pieces here except the green tag, yellow leave and buttons, come with the box, I really love the top two layer pieces.

The scalloped edge on the box top is such a nice touch, just makes the box very elegant.

Love the flowers in this kit, there are three layers and I used dimensional glue dots in between.
