I love this patriotic, fun card I made using several files from My Scrap Chick! I especially LOVE the puffy star on top of the rosette.
I used the 5" rounded base card and a few elements from Card #4.
Patriotic Family (flag)
The sentiment was printed and I added some small star brads to each corner of the card.

I love these blank easel cards from My Scrap Chick! They are a great starting point to add and embellish however you choose! Below are the files I used to create this card.

Two of my nieces are in love with The Beatles and Queen, specifically Freddy Mercury. So I made up some quick projects to give them for their birthdays.
I found a vector image online of Freddy Mercury and traced it in my software program. The Abbey Road and head silhouettes of The Beatles were free svg's I found in a Facebook group.
Super simple to cut out using vinyl and applied to the items!
I just took some quick pics using my cell phone, so photos are pretty bad. :(
This is a clipboard I applied the vinyl to. The title was just something I designed using a few different fonts.
Here is a blank journaling book. The book is actually purple and I bound it with some matching twine.
This is a glass block light. I wish I would have used a frosted glass so the lights wouldn't show through or at least have used white lights...oh well...It still looks pretty cool! I used musical Washi tape and added it around the edges and tied a big black bow around it.

I was asked to make some centerpieces for tables that were tennis themed and using pinwheels, and this is what I came up with. All the files to make these came from SVGCuts. The pinwheels are a lot of work to make, but so worth it in the end and are adorable when they spin!
Here is what I used:
*Gift Boxes SVG Kit (triangle box) I added an additional panel to the sides for more stability and cut just the tip of the triangle off to make a hole for the stick to pass through.
*Deluxe Pinwheel (this is a FREE file!)
*Fun & Games SVG Kit (tennis balls and rackets) The racket handles are wrapped with thin ribbon.
The digital paper (13 different designs total) came from Busy Lizzy Designs. I just printed each digi design on white AC card stock and cut out the files I needed.
These centerpieces stand about 18" tall and the pinwheels are 10" round.
The bases are nice and sturdy and weighted down. I used the little cement puck weights from those balloon tie downs, drilled a hole in the center and glued the stick in it.
The lollipop sticks have matching ribbon wrapped all down the sticks.
This was a gift I made for my son's Kindergarten teacher on his last day of school. The files I used were from SVGCuts called Mom's Garden Gifts SVG Kit. It was quite a lot of work, but easy files to work with and I loved the way it all turned out...so pretty!

This was a quick card I made for my little guy going to a friend's birthday party. The file was a free svg file I found on the internet. The white dots are pony beads that I melted in my oven and they are simply glued on randomly around the front. The sentiment was cut out on the green card stock and has a black background behind it.
The angry bird is on an action wobble so it moves around.
Cute and simple!
