Cuttlebug cards

I made these cards this week using my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and some Coredinations Whitewash cardstock and Chatterbox Papers. I love the effects you can achieve with the embossing folders, it is like having another patterned paper. The scallops are all taken from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge.

Now I really must work on my cards for my class this Thursday. I am thinking a cherry blossom svg with flocked flowers for one of my cards. Hope it turns out well.

DIY SVG files

I have been searching the net for inspiration for some cards for my class this week and I came across a very cool site called iDiY There are templates for everything on there - boxes, bags, labels, fonts and dings etc. All are in pdf format and so would be great for converting into svgs and cutting. Get on over there soon, that's where I will be tonight. Meanwhile think I have decided to use masks and glimmer mist to create backgrounds for my cards and may play with some digi stamp images or just make my own.

Birthday mesh

We have had a crazy time around here, birthdays, the start of a new school term, sick kids etc all on top of the usual run of the mill chaos. I have been playing a bit with SCAL 2 and it is a vast improvement - still not adequate to replace Inkscape though. I decided to create a mesh for my daughter's birthday page. I made a mini mesh for her card and thought I'd do her birthday scrapbook layout with a mesh too. Here's a picture of my creation. Let me know if you'd like it.
