Sweet Summer Lemonade Gift Set - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Here's a fun gift set I created using Doodlebug Design's Sweet Summer paper collection and embellishments along with some of the svg files you can get at Lori Whitlock's shop or Silhouette Design Store.

Since lemonade is one of my favorite summer drinks I just had to make a box card using the lemonade stand svg file and a matching box using the lemon slice.

The box card was easily created by welding some of the pieces together to form the box. I like to do all my designing in silhouette studio business edition and saving as an svg so I can import it into cricut design space and cut it out on my Cricut Maker.

You can see the dimension in the photo above. There are two inside pieces for the pitcher and glass and a back panel for the speech bubble and tree. Embellishments used from mini icon sticker sheet, this & that stickersfun fruit shape sprinklesodds & ends and chit chat pack. Patterned paper used, coconut grove, catching a wave and happy hour 12 x 12 sheets.

The box was super simple I used the 3.5" circle box from Lori's shop, I cut it down a little because I wanted a thinner box, then sized the lemon slice to fit the top.

The box is embellished with a chit chat speech bubble, fun fruit shape sprinkle, flower from the odds & ends and summer assortment sprinkles. Cardstock used, sunshine textured and lemon gingham and to finish it some swimming pool twine.

Hope you enjoyed this gift set, have a wonderful day!

Teacher Thank You Cards - Lori Whitlock Creative Team Project

Hello there, here's a quick tutorial on how I print n cut these Teacher thank you sentiments for cards from Lori Whitlock's shop using Cricut Design Space.

For the A2 shaped box card pencil I ungrouped the whole project, selected the thank you teacher and flatten it.

When it's unflatten the outlines are gone, but it will still cut out just the oval.

When you make it, you will send to printer first and then place on mat to cut.

The A2 chalkboard teacher card I added one of the teacher thank you tags to the chalkboard piece. When I imported the tags they were black so I ungrouped, deleted the ones I wasn't using, selected the top layer of the one I wanted, selected arrange at the top and moved to back and changed the color to white.

So now you can see everything on the tag.

I just wanted the thank you to print out on the chalkboard so I moved the apple and deleted the tag, selected the thank you and attached, and changed one of the letters on the thank you to white which changed all of the letters.

I ungrouped the chalkboard card, deleted what I didn't want to use, resized and center aligned the thank you over the chalkboard leaving room for the apple. I selected both and flatten, now it will print n cut.

I cut out both projects together so I could print both at one time. You can see the two print n cuts below.

I love the ability to print n cut sentiments for my projects, you can create a nice custom fit and it's super quick and easy.

Here's a closer look at both cards.
