Ginger Wishes!

This week SVG Cutting Files is coming out with another set of card bases called Label Frames. Look for them in the store this Friday.

Today I am sharing a card using Label Frame 4. I love how it frames the sweet Ginger girl from the Chibi Holiday 1 set! It will make a great frame for lots of cute cards!

Here is the card that I am sharing today:


I also used some products from Jaded Blossom: Border Dies 2, the new Stitched Hexagon Dies, and Christmas Wishes. The paper is from Doodlebug Designs Sugarplums collection.

Stop by the SVG Cutting Files blog every day this week to see more of the Label Frames!

Blessings,

Happy Friday!!! Thank you so much for joining us in celebrating Jaded Blossom's 5th Birthday with a die release blog hop!! If you are here from Gigi's blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please visit Jaded Blossom to start at the beginning. 

We are super excited to release three new dies! We are also super excited to announce that we have a new die manufacturer! We still have that great quality and our dies are still made in the USA. The big change for us means we will be able to restock on all our dies a lot quicker! For all of you wanting coffee dies... they are expected to arrive and be in stock THIS WEEKEND!

Now on to our new items! Hexagons and Word Dies! 

Scallop Hexagons $24.99





Stitched Hexagons $19.99





Word Dies $19.99


Here is what I made using these awesome new dies!


I started with the Candy Caddy, which is such a fun way to give candy bars to your favorite sports player. My husband likes to give our boys a Snickers before ever game because that is what his dad did for him and his brother. I used the smallest shape from the new Stitched Hexagon Dies and a die from the Stitched Circle Dies to make the soccer ball. I also used the Flag Dies and Go Team stamp set.


My card using the new Word Dies and the new Scallop Hexagon Dies. I also used Spring Dies 2 and Card Mat Dies. The papers were used to remind me that it will be warm again one day. I don't like being cold!!!

Abstract Christmas Card!

There are some cool new Abstract Card Bases from SVG Cutting Files coming out this Friday.

I have a project to share one of the bases with you today.


I also used Kawaii Christmas to decorate the front with the stocking. The papers are My Mind's Eye's Merry Little Christmas collection. I used the Love Donuts set from Jaded Blossom for the Kawaii face on the stocking and Mini Tag Dies 2 and Bah Humbug 2 for the sentiment.

Blessings,

Peppermint Wishes for a Merry Christmas! Jaded Blossom December Challenge!

The December Challenge for Jaded Blossom is

Crafter's Choice!

What a perfect way to get to use any Jaded Blossom stamp or die set that you have!!! Show us what you're making this December, enter the challenge, and maybe you will win a sweet prize!!!

Here is my Crafter's Choice project:


I started with a Peppermint Bark Ghiradelli Chocolate Bar. Yum!!! I used the Panel Dies to make a tag stamping it with a stamp from Holiday Gift Tags. My snowman is from SVG Cutting Files' Holiday Set 1. I did modify him a bit though using the Christmas Dies. I really like how the stitching in the holly makes it pop. Once I pieced my snowman together, I added him and the tag to the front of my chocolate bar.

We are doing a Secret Santa at work, so this will probably become one of my sweet treats for that! And I may make another one to stick in my son's stocking as Peppermint Bark is his absolute favorite and he only gets it at Christmas.

Can't wait to see what you all will make. Stop by the Jaded Blossom blog and join in the December Challenge fun!

Blessings,

Winter Koala!

Hey, it is my day to share with you on the SVG Cutting Files blog
I have a cute Winter Koala to share with you today.

Isn't he just too cute!!!


I also used the Card Front Overlay - Snow for the background. I really like the overlays that Ann has in the store. They are super easy to use and this snow one makes the perfect background 
for this cute Koala.

From Jaded Blossom, I used the Card Mat Dies, Border Dies 2, Happy Hello

I know some of you are already getting snow - I hope you stay warm!!!

Blessings,
