Haunted House

I saw a haunted house like this on a card a few days ago and thought that it might make a cute svg, so I decided to make one of my own. :) The moon is made as a separate piece to be layered on top of the house, while the windows are cutouts so you can put which color you prefer behind them. Just toss in a bat or two and you're done. ;)

Bat Silhouette

This is just a quick and simple file that I made to get back into the swing of things. I know it might be a little late with Halloween only being a few days away, but I'm sure you all will find a use for it. ;)

Chalkboard

Hey everyone! School has officially started back here, so I thought I'd toss up a school related file. ;) The text on the chalkboard isn't included, I thought you might want to use the space yourself for titles, journaling, etc. :) The font used in the preview is 2Peas Dear Diary.

Click here to download. :)

Decorative Scallop

This is just another basic file for you all (hoping to get back to some more detailed files as soon as things aren't so hectic around here). I haven't done a test cut of this, so I'm not sure how it would do if it were cut super-duper small, but otherwise, it should be fine. :)

I'm also hoping to get my fonts organized later today... they're currently all just installed on my hard drive in no particular folders or anything, so after you have a couple thousand fonts, you can imagine what a nightmare it is to find things.

Anyone have any suggestions for a nice organizational system for them? What different folders do you use to organize your fonts? Any help at all is highly appreciated!

Random Tags


I was finishing up a few details on a few pages last night and found myself in need of some specific tag shapes. The first two are just some bracket tags and the last is a basic tag with a tab on it. I used it for hidden journaling that I tucked behind a photo. :)

Horse

One more farm animal tonight to make up for the lack of files lately.

Click here to download this SVG.

Cow

Another farm critter for you. :) I always draw this cow when I'm doodling, so it seemed like an appropriate file for me to make. ;)

Click here to download.

Sheep

This is an SVG that I originally intended on selling (along with a few others) to pull in a little extra income for household stuff, but then I started up my blog and decided that I would just offer up SVGs for free. ;) I had completely forgotten about this file until today, so I thought I'd share it with you. :)

Basket

Sorry I've been MIA for the last couple of days. Things have been a little nuts here. My brother was in from Wisconsin with my 15 month old nephew this past week, our TV went out yesterday, and my friend and I went to our LSS to spend our store credit from the scrap yard sale today. We made a total of $41. Not too shabby, if I say so myself. :D We just basically had a mini-spree and bought a lot of clearance stuff, plus some papers we might not have bought otherwise. Sorry I don't have pictures to show, but I'll try to take some this coming week and get them posted. :)

Plus tomorrow, my boyfriend wants to go out, so we're going to head to the town nearest to me with a Michaels... and I have 50% off coupons in hand. ;) I have no idea what I'm going after, but I always find some good deals, so I don't mind tagging along, even if I only spend like $5. :P

Anyway! On to the file...
A simple basket file for you. :) Click here to download! And I promise more files to come soon. :)

Just showing off!

I love seeing my SVGs in action (that's what they're here for, right?) and I just wanted to show off some of the projects that people have done using some of my files. :) If you'd like to see your project featured on my blog, please email me a photo, along with a link to your blog (if you have one). :D

Please click the pictures to see a larger view of them!



First off is this awesome garden-themed bouquet by mastermom over at the SCAL forums. She used my Cutesy Butterfly and Ladybug files.I think it turned out perfect for her daughter's birthday!











Next up is this beautiful card by Tamara at Scrapcation Getaway. It was made for her parents 29th wedding anniversary. I think it turned out absolutely stunning! She used my Circle Flourish Frame.








And last, but not least, are these two great layouts by Pat over at A Scrappin' Nana. I love, love, love these layouts. For the recital page, she used one of my Frames, Tags, and Borders sets and for the page with the boats, she altered my Swirly 3 Circle Frame.


I think all of these projects turned out great and I can't wait to see even more of my files used in the future!

Cake

A friend mentioned that she had seen a cake embellishment somewhere that she loved so she drew a quick sketch of it and asked me to make a file similar to it. This is the finished product. Enjoy! :D

License Plate

I've been super-busy for the last couple of days organizing the scraproom that my friend and I share. Between sorting paper for the new cropper hoppers, organizing a new cabinet that she got, and going through ALL of our supplies to figure out what we were going to sell at the scrap yard sale at the LSS, I haven't really had much time for other stuff. :P

The scrap yard sale was yesterday morning. Our LSS opens at 10am and when we went at 10:30 to see what everyone else was selling, about half of our stuff had already sold! :D I can't wait to find out how much we made... and I'm even more excited to go spend all that store credit. ;)

On to the file! I finally got time to make this quick license plate file. The SVG is just the basic license plate - the text on them is just an example of what you can make them look like. I was looking for a font to make the large text and I ran into this great License Plate font that works great.

Man & Woman

Just a quick SVG for you all. :) I've seen these popping up all over the place on scrapbook layouts and cards and thought I'd make some to try on a layout sometime.

Another Ladybug

I decided to make a side-view ladybug to go along with the other ladybug I made awhile back. :) If you don't have the other one I made yet, you can find it here. For even more ladybug files, check out Everything Ladybug!

Brag About Some New Stuff

I haven't really been buying as much new scrapbooking stuff in the last few months as I normally would. The short version of the reasoning is that my stepfather was diagnosed with lymphoma a couple of months ago and since I still live at home (and we don't currently have health coverage), my money has been better spent elsewhere.

I gave in and splurged a little this past week though. First off, I bought the K&Co Transfers to Go that you see above from a nice lady at 2peas. She had used two rubons out of the stitches set, but since these come with a ton in each set, I couldn't pass them up for her price of $3.50 shipped for all four sets of them.

Today, I placed an order through Joann's via Amazon. I had a couple of Amazon gift cards that I earned on a couple of sites online. I've just had them stored in my Amazon account for about a month now, knowing I would end up spending them on stuff from Joann's, but I wanted to wait on some good deals. Here's what I bought:

Cropper Hopper 12x12 Vertical Paper Holder
I'm going vertical! I ordered five of these to get me started. I'm hoping that will be enough to at least take care of all my loose paper that isn't in stacks/pads. I'm super-excited about sorting all of my paper to put them in these (I know, I'm a nerd... you don't have to remind me :P). I'm also excited about making the tags to label them. :D


DCWV 12''x12'' The Summer Stack
I absolutely love the DCWV stacks. Especially the spring/summer/etc stacks that come with 180 sheets. I only started buying them earlier this year, but usually I see them at really good prices at Joann's.




Inkadinkado Clear Mini Stamps, Hop On Over
I bought these mostly to fill up the order (free shipping on Joann's orders over $35), but I've been wanting them for awhile now, due to the fact that I have both a great dane and a dachshund. They were just too cute to pass up.



I also bought caps for the ends of a dowel rod that I plan on putting through a shelf I bought at a yard sale ages ago for a better way to store my ribbon.

The total for my Joann's order was $37.19 after tax, but after applying my $30 in gift cards, I only had to pay $7.19 out of pocket. :D I'm thinking that's a pretty nice haul. ;)

Sorry for the random non-svg related post, but I had to brag somewhere and my boyfriend just doesn't seem to get excited over this kind of thing. :P

Heart Frame

I was messing around with frame ideas and this one just kind of fell together. I might make more frames like this later that use different shapes. Hope you like it! :)

Party Hats

Here are a few party hats for your designs. I put the plain one in there so you could add whatever embellishments you wanted and decorate it yourself. :)

Click here to download the zip file containing all three party hats.

Book Plate

Sorry for no new files for the last couple of days. I went to stay with my scrapping buddy. Though, we didn't end up getting any layouts finished. We just sorted through our scrapping stuff (we share a scrapping room) for a scrap sale at our LSS. I don't think I had realized the amount of stuff we had until we started going through it all.

Anyway! On to this quick book plate file I made for you guys. I'll probably get a few more files up this evening to make up for being away. ;) Enjoy!

Cutesy Butterfly

Here's another cutesy bug for your projects. :) I'm not sure that I'm completely happy with how this one turned out, but I got tired of messing with it. :P I may make another one sometime though. The eyes and mouth are better drawn on, so they aren't part of the SVG, sorry!

Click here to download. :)

Decorative Frame Set

Here's another frame and tag set for you to use. :) Two frames and a tag this time. Like the last one, I didn't put a hole in the tag, so you can punch one any size that you'd like. :)

I also made this frame frame for two pictures. The entire thing is only four pieces, so not difficult to put together. :) If you'd like to download the fonts for yourself, the font used for the words on the frame is 2Peas Dear Diary and the & symbol is from a font called Abuse.

I hope you like the frames! Enjoy!

One More Retro Tree

I wasn't sure if I was happy with the "leaves" on the tree I put up earlier, so I also made this as an alternative. Like the last one, the circles are separated in groups of four so you can make them three different colors, if you'd like. Enjoy!

Click here to download. :)

Another Retro Tree

Just another retroish tree for your designs. :) The leaves are separated in the svg so you could do four of each color, but you could just as easily do them all the same color, if you'd prefer. :)

Ladybug

This is just one file, but the wings of the ladybug are each an individual piece, so you can position them and the spots however you'd like. :)
Click here to download.

Want even more ladybug files? Why not visit Everything Ladybug!? Angie and Kevin have some super-cute ladybug svgs, not to mention all of the info, crafts, food ideas, fonts, and even more awesome stuff. :D

Update: You can find another ladybug file by me here.

Beach Ball

Another file to match the beach items I put up yesterday. This beach ball is only two pieces, so yay for easy piecing! (Can anyone tell I'm lazy?) :P

Click here to download.

Kiss the Bride

It's been awhile since I made a silhouette, so I thought I'd make one. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I hope you all like it! :)

If you like this file, you might also like the flower girl silhouette that I made awhile back. :)

Swirl Frame & Tag Set

I've been meaning to make some frames with matching tags, so I hope this will be the first of many sets. Just a heads up though, I haven't cut these, so I'm not sure how the swirls on the tag will cut if you try to go super-small. I would do a test cut, but everyone is still in bed here and one of my dogs is convinced that my Cricut is something evil that needs to be barked at. :P

I also didn't put a hole in the tag, so that you could make your own for different sized eyelets and such. :)

Retro Tree

I love the retro look, especially when retro trees are used in scrapbook layouts, so I made this one. :) The limbs of the tree were cleaned up a little more after I made the preview, because I wasn't completely happy with them, but I was too lazy to make another preview. :P

Click here to download.

I have a few more ideas for some retro trees that I hope to get to in the next few days, as well. :)

2people + 2gether = 4ever

I thought this might make some cute wordart, so I gave it a try. :) The font I used is CAC Pinafore. I absolutely adore the way this font looks. This file may be a little more complicated to piece, just because the actual letters aren't welded, but I think you can do it. ;)

Click here to download.

Sorry for the lack of files for the last few days... I've been running low on ideas. :P I started brainstorming earlier though and I'm hoping to have a few new ones up in the next couple of days. :)

Cutesy Spider

Someone over on the SCAL forums was looking for a cute spider for a boy's birthday card. So here's another cutesy bug for you. :) Maybe I'll just end up making a whole set of them at some point. :P

Click here to download and enjoy! :D

Also, I just wanted to add, I've appreciated all of the comments I've been receiving lately. They make me even more motivated to make files for you all! I also added a widget to my blog last week to show the top commenters. If you click their names, it will take you to their profile (if they have one), where you can go visit their blog. So go show them some love, too! :)

ABC Frame

I made this for the ABC Border/Frame challenge posted over on the SCAL forum. I thought I'd post it here, too, just in case some of you don't frequent the SCAL forums. I actually made this a few days ago, with the letters going all the way around the frame, but I really hated the way it turned out. :P I took off all the letters except the top row, and I like it a bit better now. The font used is BoyzRGross.

Award Ribbon

Another SVG for you! I'm trying to make up a little for being gone all weekend. :P The ribbon is six pieces, so it shouldn't be difficult to piece together. I left it blank so you could add your own text and make it whatever kind of ribbon you'd like.

I think I'll make one for the boyfriend that says something along the lines of "Most Awesomest Boyfriend" or something corny like that. :P Though I could see someone using these for all sorts of things... attached to gifts to use as the tag, for kids as a reward for doing chores, or for no reason in particular. :)

Click here to download.

Circle Flourish Frame

I thought I'd take this opportunity to show off one of the layouts I did over the weekend. I used paper from DCWV Stack 6 for the patterned letters and background. The font used is 2 Peas Airplanes. Airplanes is an awesome font for cutting. The letters are thick, so they're easy to use without tearing and it just looks "fun". :D

I made this frame specifically with this paper in mind, although I had no idea what picture(s) I was going to use on the layout. :P I was going through one of my photo boxes and saw this picture of Cherokee (my weird Great Dane) and knew it would work great. :D

Please forgive me for the not-so-great photo of the layout. It's my first time ever taking a picture of a layout and I'm still trying to work the bugs out. :P


Here's the frame I used on the layout. Click here to download and enjoy! :D

Blog Candy!

Melissa over at Creating from the Heart is giving away a Cuttlebug! And seriously, who can resist blog candy? Go check out her blog to find out how to enter. Go go go! :)

Cute Caterpillar

I apologize for the lack of files for this weekend. I went to stay with my scrapping buddy on Saturday. I managed to finish eight layouts while I was there, and teach her a little more about SCAL. :) We went out for Chinese and caught the fireworks show in town. Scrapping, good food, and fireworks. Not a half-bad way to spend the 4th, if I do say so myself. ;) Although, I completely forgot my camera at home, so I didn't get any pictures, but my friend got a few, so I'll just get copies of hers. :)

Anyway, on to the file that I made for you all! When I'm on the phone, I tend to doodle and I always end up drawing this little caterpillar, so I thought I'd make him into an SVG. There are six parts to piece together (the black under-layer and the five body "segments"). Enjoy!

Little Firecracker Title

I'm on a roll with these 4th of July cuts. Hope you all don't mind! :P I saw a stamp awhile back that I really liked that said "Little Firecracker." I figured I'd make my own wordart to cut with SCAL. I thought someone out there might enjoy using it, as well.

The font used is Cursif. It's a free font, but parts of it are a little thin to cut with SCAL. For this SVG, I made pieces of the font a little thicker so they would cut easier. The larger you cut this, the easier it will be to get off the mat without tearing it. ;) Be careful when taking it off the mat. :P
