Hello all! 

Did you see the new stencil cards? Suzanne already designed quite a few of them. You can mix and match them. You can use the stencil and the cutout (like I did). Robyn showed us all the different ways to use the digital file in her last blog post (Ginko Stencil Card).

I used the "Curled Flower Stencil Birthday Card" digital file for both cards. You can find it here.

Once you have cut all elements it´s really just putting them together. If you want to use the "negative" cut like I did, use the stencil for help to get everything in the right position.

What do you think? Which one do you prefer? 

Have a happy and sunny week.

Hello all! 
Kora here with a Happy Birthday Gift Card Box made for a young lady turning seven years.

You can find the digital cutting file here:

Choose the colors of your choice and let the cutting machine do the rest.
all cut

Suzanne made a video tutorial on how to assemble the box. You can find it here.

I added lots and lots of rhinestones because the birthday girl loves glitter and shimmering stuff. The more the better.

I also quilled the first initial of the girl's name to accompany the card.

Have a happy. crafting week!

Floral Grad 2020 Card

Hi Connie Nichol here today with a graduation card using the 3D Floral Grad card available in the Silhouette Design store here.  My youngest son is graduating high school this year.  It's not much of a grad, with the Covid19 social distancing and school closures, but it's still a milestone to be celebrated.

There are quite a few pieces - make sure you ungroup and separate them all before cutting, especially the multi-layer flower. It's a super cute card and you can get many different looks by varying the colours of the cardstock you use to cut the different components.  Try using foam adhesive under some of the components to add dimension.

Thanks for stopping by, Connie

Hello, crafting friends!
How are you all doing around the world? Are you still staying at home?  

Here is a project to say THANK YOU to all the doctors and nurses out there, who have been working really hard these past couple of weeks. You can find the file here: THANK YOU STETHOSCOPE FRAMED

On the mat

The file comes with the words THANK YOU, which fit on the top and bottom of the frame. I didn´t use them. I will give this frame to my sister, who currently works at the coronary care unit an the Children´s Heart Center.
