Garden Arbor Basket Digital Cutting File

Sneaking in one last new project before Easter….a garden arbor shaped basket cutting file.

This cutting files includes the picket fence basket with an “arbor like” handle plus some optional accessories to decorate your basket.  I included some grass for the base, a vine for the arbor and 3 different flower shapes.  I also included an egg shape in case you want an Easter themed basket.

For my sample, I shaped the flowers with a stylus before I glued them together – just to give a little more dimension.  Added some Easter grass and a couple eggs.  The Creative Team made some amazing projects too!

Here is Kim’s basket – with a little bunny desperate to get to those chocolate carrots.

Janie’s basket is full of yummy eggs.

Melinda had the brilliant idea to use just part of the file to make this lovely spring card!

This project was inspired by the picket fence and arbor in front of my vegetable garden.  It will be time to plant that soon.  Here’s hoping I can keep the rabbits out of my real garden!

Do you “Boo”?

I have a new Craft Kit in my Digichick shop.  It’s called “Boo To You” and I made it specifically for my daughters to “Boo” their friends (although I think it is useful for other crafty Halloween projects too).

Have you heard of “Booing”?

Basically, you secretly  leave some surprise treats for someone in the neighborhood with instructions to pass the fun on to another neighbor.  If they want to play along, they can “Boo” someone else by leaving treats and instructions.  Its kind of fun to watch the “boo” travel through the neighborhood.  My girls are so excited to play this little “trick” on their friends.

The kit has plenty of images, tags, titles  and papers to decorate your “Boo” package.  There is even a complete set of “Boo” instructions all ready to include with your treats.  Here is a peek at the kit:

To make things even easier, I also created a Door Hanger Treat Box cutting file.  You can use it to create a cute treat holder that simply hangs on the door.

Here is a picture of my first “Boo” package.  My girls are already discussing how they want to decorate theirs, who’s getting them and what will be inside (there is a lot of interest in those Peep Ghosts).

Both of these are on sale at the Digichick for 30% off through Sunday.  So maybe you want to boo too!

Candy Box Cutting File

I’m still having a great time with my Silhouette cutter.  It kind of boggles my mind that it can cut out these tiny little details perfectly – its awesome!

I created this box cutting file to hold a standard Hershey bar.  I’m actually quite tickled with the latched shaped like a butterfly 🙂

The box is very easy – just cut it out using your electronic cutter of choice (the download contains 4 different file formats: .studio for Silhouette, .svg, .dxf, and .ai) and fold on the dashed lines.  I added a little glue to the side flaps – but the box actually holds together without the glue once it is folded.

Add your chocolate bar and fold the wings of the butterfly up.

Fold the flaps over and feed the butterfly through the slot.  Open the wings to hold the box closed. 

The box can be made with card stock, scrapbook papers, or even printed digital papers.  And of course you can embellish the box however you like.  I printed one of the papers from the Folkart Love kit here – and added embellishments made with the print and cut files included in that kit.

Check out the cute box Cathy made!  She used the Folkart Love kit too – and she glittered the butterfly – you gotta love a bling-y butterfly!

Happy Crafting!

A new Digital Craft Kit release – Folkart Love

I have some new products in my Digichick store to share today.  Since they are new releases they are 20% off for the next 2 days!

The first is a new digital crafting kit called Folkart Love.  The images were inspired by different kinds of folk art (mainly Polish and Amish) – plus a little heart action thrown in for Valentine’s day.

Something new with this kit – Silhouette cut and print files are included for all the digital elements (images, tags, borders, etc.).  It makes crafting so easy when you can just print and cut!

The set is available as a value bundle, or you can just purchase the individual pieces.  Here are some pictures of the kit contents:

The focal images – great for hybrid projects and scrapbooking.

The tags and borders – these can be used for card sentiments, mats behind images or for journal tags in scrapbooking.

The papers – with  both patterns and textured solids

I’m excited to say my second product is a cutting file!

This cut pattern creates a candy bar box with a heart scalloped edge and a butterfly latch. It is designed to fit a standard 1.55 oz Hershey bar – but could be used for other things as well. (a gift card fits with a little room to spare).  The download includes a Silhouette .studio file, a .svg file and a .ai file to be used with a variety of cutters.

I had so much fun creating this new release.  And playing with the cutting files has been a blast.  I’ll have some more samples for you tomorrow.

Fourth Friday Fun Challenge for November

(I know – I’m posting a little early.  But I don’t want to forget with all the partying going on here 🙂         )

Its another 4th Friday… you know what that means… So – if you are not out there shopping… come join the fun! 

This month our challenge is “Tag – you’re it”. 

Create a project the is a tag, contains a tag, or could be used as a tag… we want to see them all!

You prize?  This month its my all time favorite Kraftin Kimmie stamp – Clara and the bird.

The rules – pretty simple.   Please include only newly created projects (although feel free to combine this challenge with others out there in blogland).  For this month – feel free to enter as many projects as you’d like.  Please link back to this challenge if at all possible.   You have until midnight (EST) on Monday, Dec. 6 to enter.

To enter, just use the little froggy face at the bottom of this post to link up your creation. 

For my tag project, I created a tin full of tags.

Its no secret that I adore Eat Cake Graphics images.  I got to use a whole bunch of them to create my tags.  So fun!

The tags are small folded cards and I sized them to fit in the square tin.  The kraft base is 2 3/8″ by 4 3/4″ – scored in the middle.  Then I layered a scalloped square Spellbinders die on top.  The images were stamped and cut out using a smooth square die and then colored with Copics.  I also added a little Burlap Distress ink around the edges of the white squares.  With the images layered with foam tape (as I did here), the tin holds 9 tags.

Some of the images I wanted to use were larger than the square.  So I just cut and embossed my paper, and then stamped the part of the image I wanted before removing the die.  I find I get the best impression when I do this with a pad beneath the paper.  I use a sheet of craft foam.  (Make sure you clean your die after stamping so you don’t get ink smudges on your next project).

For the tin itself, I covered the outside with a strip of kraft cardstock and then wrapped ribbon around it.  I added the sentiment from the Mr. and Mrs. Clause cling set, also cut with Spellbinders dies.  Last, I wrapped twill ribbon around the lid of the tin. 

Here are the stamp sets I used.  All of the images here come from Eat Cake Graphics (painfully cute huh?):



So that is my little project – I had a lot of fun creating it.  Hope everyone here in the US is having a fabulous Thanksgiving!

If you need to do some shopping – check out our Super Simple Sale – everything in the store is 23 % off through the 30th.
