14 Days of Holidays - Giveaway Day 5 December 07, 2015 07:00 3 Comments

Welcome to Day 5 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

Todays free cut file is Holiday Sentiments.

I absolutely love the free cut file that is available for you today and, I think you will love it too! It's a doozy packed with some lovely sentiments. These are so perfect for cards but, I can picture them being used on just about any holiday project.

 

Fun, right??? The fonts are just so perfect. I created two cards and a gift tag using several of these sentiments. They are so easy to size and cut out to fit perfect on each project.

This first card is a standard A2 card. 

How cheery is that? I did a watercolor wash on the base and added some paint drips. Then, using some fun sparkly red cardstock, I cut out the merry&bright sentiment rather large. With some snowflake sticker embellishing, this card will hopefully brighten up someone's holiday!

The second card I made is a 6x6 size. Every once in awhile I like to create one of these. I use the larger size for cards that will be signed by more than one person or to have room to add photos or a letter. This time, I wanted to use more than one word. I chose three that seem to go nicely together - joy, peace, noel.

To create a fun and interesting backdrop, I splattered some red watercolor and used the scribbles 1 cut file. 

Finally, because I was just having too much fun AND I was figuring out what to do with the last of my 12x12 piece of cardstock, I created this gift tag.

I cut out the 'joy' to fit large. I like the look of words and images going off the canvas of the page. The background is a watercolor wash.

Summer Cards and Circles July 16, 2015 07:00

Hello everybody,

Melissa here with a couple of cards that put the focus on circles! There are plenty of fun circular cut files in the shop and I had some fun playing with a couple. They work so great on cards!

Here is the first card I created using the Scribbles1 cut file. 

There are four different designs with this cut file. I chose two and resized so they would fit on a card. I shrunk one of them just a tad smaller for layering. Here is a side view of the card so you can see the cut file detail.

By using some pop dots, I created some fun dimension with the two layers of scribble circles. And that sun looks pretty cute on top, don't you think?

For the next card, I had some fun with one of the pie chart shapes from the Funky Piecharts cut file. Again, there are four different ones to use and I chose one of the larger and less wonky ones. I do love how the center is offset. Adds a fun look to the overall design!

To make sure the pattern paper fit right under the pie chart, I simple ungrouped the shapes and left the outer circle. Then, I cut out the pattern paper and wah-lah! Fits like a charm.

I love the rhythm and movement the cut file brings to the card. Sure, I could have just gone with the pattern paper but, how boring would that be!

Circles are such a fun element to bring to your paper crafting projects! Especially cards!

Thanks for swinging by today! And check out the links below so you can get yourself the cut files I used on my cards.
