Paper and Vinyl

It's been ages since I have posted. I have manged to complete a few projects since my last visit, I will be sharing some of them in the next few days.

First off an Advent Calendar from Mary at SVG Cuts. I only did a portion of the project since the recipient will be traveling the first part of the month. Mary's designs are awesome. She and Leo are the owners of SVG Cuts and offer some of the best paper crafting kits available. They are the 2013 Winners of the Martha Stewart American Made Award. This week they are giving away a free kit. Yes a FREE kit, so click on over to their blog to get the file, then watch the assembly instructions on YouTube. You still have time to make a few projects before Christmas. You can also use the files with different papers to produce projects for birthdays, weddings for any occasion you can imagine.
(Valid through December 20,2013)

The Second project is a vinyl hurricane lamp. The French Lace Design is another of Mary's. This was the first vinyl project that they have produced. I hope they will continue offering vinyl projects periodically. The lamp components are from the Dollar Tree. I got the idea from several pins on Pinterest and some Google images of similar projects. So with my trusty E-6000, a vase and candlestick from the dollar store I now have a very cute hurricane lamp. I hope to complete a few more for gifts.

This project I saw on Heartfelt Creations. It was a DT idea from Olga. Using my ScorPal, paper trimmer and some dies I made these explosion boxes for the members of my card group. It was a fun project and a big hit at our Christmas get together.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to share some tatting projects in my next post.



  1. Thanks for the link to SVG cuts. I entered a whole new world! I don't have a cutting machine, but I see that the Cricut owners can't use their software, which is a shame because their ideas are awesome. They deserve their award! What kind of machine do you have?

  2. Hi Kathy, Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I couldn't find an email to reply directly so I will answer here and hope that you will see it.
