Adding Shimmer to SVG cuts Easily + Giveaway! - New Digital Release and Design Team!

We started the month with an amazing blog hop with Paper Tempress and today we continue the celebration with our New Release Blog Hop. Today we introduce more new designers that have joined our team for 2017-2018 and who have many project ideas that I know you'll love!

We have released 3 new stamp sets, a paper pack and an SVG set! We have a special collection for the first time called Magnolia Dreams that includes coordinating stamps, papers and SVG cuts. It has a beautiful color theme in fuscia and teal. To complement this collection, Paper Temptress has put together a specialty paper pack that coordinates with the theme. You can find out more about that on yesterday's blog hop!

Today I have a card and a gift card holder to share featuring the Magnolia Dreams collection. I'm having lots of fun with the new svg cut files and I love that I was able to design them to coordinate with the pattern in the digital papers.


The new SVG files are so versatile. I resized the medallion on Cricut Design Space and cut them in 2 different sizes. The large one was cut from Teal Basis 80# which is a matte cardstock, I used a brush to apply mixed media adhesive and then covered it with Colorbox Winter Frost glitter. The smaller medallion was cut from Self Adhesive Toner Sheets and then foiled with Teal Deco Foil in a laminator. These are just 2 ways you can customize your SVG cuts and as you can see it is very simple to do!


I cut the gift card holder with one of Anna Griffin's newest cartridges, cutting all the elements with our new digital patterned papers. Our digital paper pack comes with a Magnolia branch clipart and those are the perfect finishing embellishments for your projects. I usually like to finish my printed elements with a bit of Glitter Dust spray which not only seals the print but also adds a beautiful soft sparkle. That is another fun way of adding shimmer to your SVG cuts and the best part is this spray won't smudge the ink on your prints, on the contrary it will protect them and make them more durable.



As you can see even the inside of the gift card holder uses digital paper prints. Digital paper packs are the perfect way to customize projects, but my favorite part is you can print them over and over again, so you never run out of your favorite patterns.

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home. White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with you HERE . I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern. As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial  HERE ) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large h
