Seeing Stars with SVG Attic



Thank Goodness It's Friday! 
Today I'm sharing a few cards I created

SVG Attic Festive Fourth, Star Card, The Crafting Cave
I love this file because you can use it for more than
the 4th of July. Don't get me wrong, I knocked out four 
Independence Day cards in no time but it's nice knowing 
you can do more. And talk about double duty, using the star cutouts 
and the negative cutout for shaker cards is amazing! 


Here's the cards I created and the full list of supplies.

Time For A Cup Of Tea with SVG Attic





TGIF everyone! I'm so excited to share this adorable
Tea Cup/Tea Gift Box I made using  

I used the teacup from SVG Attic's Mom's English Garden Set and at the moment it is not available.
 It's being reworked to make it more compatible with your machines.
 However, keep checking SVG Attic's site for it.
 A little peek inside.

Okay, first let me say this.....I was blown away by
the size of this cupcake holder. I wasn't thinking full size cupcakes.
I was thinking mini, I don't know why. I figured if nothing else, I would use the cupcake holder
turned Tea Shop to gift the tea and wrap the cup/saucer separately.
No need, the box is big enough!

I was a little intimidated when I first started looking at the cupcake holder.
I know, it looks like it would take some time! I'm hear to tell you, it doesn't.

Craft Smith Tea Party 12x12 Paper Pad
All I did was cut out the pieces using two cutting mats. I assembled as
I cut. I let the paper do all the work for me. So, literally, I cut and glued.
I just made sure to have my supplies and file organized before I started.
 I layered the bottom for stability with two layers of paper and one layer
corrugated paper. I punched two holes for ribbon to close and added the tag.

This is the cup from Mom's English Garden Set. 

If you have ever wanted to try this cupcake holder and shied away from it,
go for it! It's easy peasy! And the possibilities are endless!  You will be seeing
me use it again and again!
