SVG files and FABRIC to create Chair Huggers and Kitchen Decor

Alma got an early sweet treat before Halloween. It was the new Cricut Maker. Who knew what fun home decor items you could make with cutting files and fabric.

Alma happily reported that despite her doubts as to how well the Cricut Maker would do with fabric, she was amazed to see how accurate and well it was able to cut all her material.

I love to sew, it's what I do to totally unwind and go to my "happy place." Have you tried using our cutting files to make fabric projects yet? This idea is definitely on my to-do list.

Friendship Tea and Japanese Flower Girls Part 3

Here's the 3rd and final post in our tea series with the JAPANESE FLOWER GIRLS. This card front uses 'Hannah' (meaning favorite flower) from the  set
Peachy pinks, apple-y greens, then a touch of black. Love the colors. The box is from the DESIGNER BOXES set, 3 rhinestones along the bottom of the box and one for the flower center in the flower girl's hair add a sparkle.
I really like how April makes the inside of her gifts as fun and uplifting as the outside. Here she tucked one of the printable greetings from the TEA CUPS & TAGS set on the underside of the lid. Coordinating bits of cardstock are stapled to the original tea tag.
April used the svg cutting files from the following sets.
Thank you April M.

A Cup of Tea Card And Tea Gift Box Part 2

Are you a tea lover or know someone in your life that is. Here is a wonderful idea for a friend, a birthday, Mother's day, a hostess or thank you gift.
Several years ago our friend April created this beautiful set of tea cards and tea gift boxes. We love these as much today as we did back then so we had to share them with you.  
Beautiful and unexpected colors of purple and apple green add a happy note to the front of the card. The flower girl 'Miki' is on the front. Her name means 'beautiful princess'. She is one of 3 flower girls in JAPANESE FLOWER GIRLS set. The flowers are included with the set in the Cherry Blossom file.

On the outside of the gift box, April used the cherry blossom branch again and then added a tea cup and printed tag from the TEA CUPS & TAGS collection. You'll find a full page of quotes ready to print and cut included with the tea cup patterns. Sure makes it quick and fun to put this project together.

When you lift the lid you are greeted again with 'Miki'.
For the box itself, April choose the square PIE BOX,  enlarged it to fit the containers, deleted the window on the top and added side panels.

She found the little plastic heart containers at the dollar store and filled them with and assortment of loose leaf teas and added labels. You could also add an assortment of individually packaged tea bags.

April used the svg cutting files from the following sets.

Thank you April M.


3 Gifts of Tea and the Japanese Flower Girls SVGs - Part 1

We're heading into fall and cooler weather so it's the perfect time to enjoy a cup of tea and share a cup with a friend. Alma from our design team is creating cheerful tea bag dispensers using the 3 princesses from the Japanese Flower Girls collection and the Dispenser Box.
The 3 princesses from this collection were given special names.. Let me introduce you...
The first is Miki. Her name means "beautiful princess". 
This is Hana. Her name means "favorite flower". The branch of cherry blossoms is included with collection and looks beautiful on the front of each dispenser.
And the third flower girl is called Sakura. Her name means "cherry blossom". 
When Alma shared her tea dispensers with us we were really tickled and recalled some projects our friend April did for us several years ago. We are going to make this a 3 part series and share those with you as well.
These little Japanese Flower Girls are such the perfect characters to add to any tea related project.
Alma used the svg cutting files from the following sets:

Sunflowers, Bumble Bees and Fall Florals

Every summer my neighbors grow these wild and beautiful sunflowers along our shared fence. I get to enjoy all these big colorful blooms all summer long without lifting a finger nor a shovel. But even so, they did inspire me to work on new Sunflower designs for paper crafting.
 As I was working on the designs for the new cutting files I would step out into the back yard every now and then just to view the sunflowers. Then one afternoon I suddenly realized they were swarming with little honey bees.  Lots and lots of them. Well of course! If you have sunflowers, you will also have bees. (Hopefully!) So of course, I had to add some little Bumble Bees to my sunflowers too. 

 Sunflowers and Bumble Bees Bundle...
The new fall set includes a 3D Sunflower made using rosettes and pop dotted layers for the seed pod. You can see the rosette construction in the Sunflower Tutorial. This finished sunflower measures just over 5" wide. 
The bloom for the Giant Sunflower in the upper right is a different set of files (so it can be super sized) but uses the same rosette idea and construction steps. It's about 10" across. Perfect for hanging in your front door.
This bundle also includes the Sunflower A2 shape card and the 2 Bumble Bees.
Scrappy Sam Designs A2 Sunflower Shape Card

Shirley on our design team didn't waste a single moment and created the A2 shape card above and then the beautiful fall arrangement below using the 3D Sunflowers and tucking them in with her other fall florals.

  Shirley will be sharing the full photos on her blog so be sure to pay her a visit. You will love the full on view of this fall beauty.

Thank you, Shirley!
