Skater Dude!

So my son is turning 9 this weekend. As he gets older, Super Heroes have become less important and Sports have become everything. This year he wanted his party to be skater themed. I asked him if he wanted me to make his invitations and his reply was "No, I don't want anything babyish." I asked him to take a look at the SVG Cutting Files skater file and he quickly changed his mind. I began to design these, but I had no time for paper-piecing 15 cards; so I decided to print the JPG instead. I fussy cut around it and then used a distress tool to add distressing around the edge of the image and around the maroon and black layered cardstock. I finished up the first one and showed it to him. He was so excited and exclaimed, "This is the coolest invitation you have ever made me." That made my day. Thank you SVG Cutting Files for helping me be a hit with my precious son! I truly appreciate it!!!

I will enter this card into the following challenges:

Divas by Design - Distressing
Paper Playtime: Anything Goes

I hope you have a craftastic day! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Super Dad!


I was so excited to be able to make my husband a Superman card for Father's Day. For his gift, the kids and I took him to see Man of Steel. My husband is a rock in our family. Life is richer and fuller just having him around. We are blessed to have someone who cares about us and cares for us. I appreciate everything he does!

For this card I used several SVG files from various companies. The Superman is from a file called Super Kid found at SVG Cutting Files. The badge is from Pretty Papers Pretty Ribbons. The cityscape is from SVG Cuts in a kit called New Year's Eve. The DP is Echo Park (Hello Summer Paper Pack).I used Papertrey Ink cardstock for the base. My husband was so excited about this card. He said that it is going straight to his office.

I will be entering this into the Paper Playtime Challenge - Anything Goes.

Hope you all have enjoyed celebrating the Dads in your life this Father's Day!

Leo the Lion


Little Scraps of Heaven is giving away a free copy of this Lion SVG to anyone willing to make something with it this weekend (May 31 - June 2, 2013) and post a picture of it on their FB page. You can make whatever you want with it - a card, scrapbook page, decoration for a 3D project, etc. You have one more day to get him and get something made. Just visit their FB page to find the post to give you all the details. I made the little cutie to give to my dad for a birthday card. The sentiment on the inside reads "Happy Birthday." The piecing went together quickly and easily. I hope some of you find time tonight or tomorrow to stop by and get your free copy! Happy Crafting!
