Category Archives: Sure Cuts A Lot

My youngest daughter decided to have a bowling party for her birthday on this Sat. so I designed a bowling pin card svg file this afternoon and cut it with my Cricut, then used a Cricut cartridge for the “your invited” and the star ….these are sooooo cute….especially when you line them all up like they are on the alley…..lol. I used graphite Glimmer mist to give them a nice sparkle!! Which reminds me I want to get some Shimmerz Spritz to try, I want to compare it to Glimmer Mist…has anyone tried both? What is your opinion?

Here are some more scrumptious flowers made using my Flower Power SVG files for Sure Cuts A Lot!! They were pretty easy to make, just a little time consuming.
I just used white cardstock, glimmer mist from Tattered Angels and the odd button, flowers soft or fancy stick pins. The large yellow flower is made by stacking ¬†various sizes of the 5 petal flower and the green and red flower was made by using the wide single petal cut multiple times. ……Click images for a larger peek!

Here’s a sweet layout made using a few of my newest SVG files for SCAL. I used Flower Power and Medallion, you can find them here! I just love these colors together, the background is a deep salmon color in case your monitor doesn’t display it correctly. This wee little bird (a house wren) was another one of my rescues….and yes he/she recovered and was fine! ūüôā

If you own any of the personal cutters ¬†that can cut TTF’s, such as a Cricut using Sure Cuts Alot software,¬†then you must get this font!! It’s fabulous looking!!!!!

Yay! I found one, finally, on sale at Walmart!!!!! ¬†Here is a 12×12 layout made using one of my Fancy Cut Bracket Mat/Frame¬†SVG files. I used the swirly green one you see in the ETSY ¬†preview. And below that are a few cards made using my Dewdrop Birds SVG files…..too fun!!!!

I ¬† love it when I stumble upon a great new product and that’s what “Smooch” by Clearsnap is!

Simply fun in a bottle that comes in a myriad of colors! And it looks cute to boot!! I only snagged a few colors from Scrapbooking Fanatics but I see a a few more colors in my future! 

Here is a layout where I used ¬†“Smooch” to add faux stitching around the photos as well as dots on the handcut flower…I am such a doodler at heart that this product totally serves me well! ūüôā¬†

Here are just a few projects I’ve made over the weekend using some of my new SCAL images from my ETSY store…..I am really enjoying designing my own images!! The first layout below only uses my bird svg file, the second used my bird, branch and fence files, the third uses my apron lace circle and one of the damask patterns, and the fourth uses just a damask pattern.
