Jukebox Shaped Card

Hello everyone! I am sharing a shaped card today: Thanks to Jackie, I get to pick two SVG kits provided free of charge by SVG Cuts. My only experience with SVG Cuts before was using one of their free designs on my porthole card here. This time, I picked Christmas Cheer and Rockin and Rollin. The jukebox card is in the R&R kit (there is also a jukebox box pattern in there). You will need the designer version of Silhouette Studio to be able to import SVGs for cutting with your Silhouette machines. I am impressed with how well organized SVG Cuts’ files are and how detailed their instructions are. I love that all the files are already sized to go together on a card. If nothing else, their awesome project samples are totally worth checking out! So cute and bright and inspiring! You will love it! SUPPLIES InLinkz.com

TCS#7 – Howdy!

This week we are having a color challenge: apple green, bright orange, rich red and medium gray! Additional neutral colors allowed are: black, white and kraft. This week, our challenge is sponsored by Paper Smooches! You probably know how much I heart Paper Smooches stamps? Unique images and sentiments perfect for creating with Silhouette machines. Kim, the sweet and awesome owner of PS sent us each a stamp set of choice. I’m a PS Club member (I get all three new sets about a week earlier than the release date) so I picked a set from The Kismet Collection: Buckaroo! I used the print and cut function of the Silhouette. I bought the Arizona state shape here, replaced the star (indicating where Phoenix is) with a […]

TCS – You Are Too Kind Card

Hello everyone! It is time for another The Cameo Spotlight Challenge! The challenge is to use the three colors (rich red, deep orange and harvest gold) on your card. I used only these colors on today’s card but you are allowed to use neutral colors as well (black, white and kraft). This week we have a great sponsor and prize :) Check out the details here! Does it remind you of the Gallon/Quart/Pint rule?:) I used this file as a starting point (as the red lines shown below), played with the proportion of the colors and then cut each layer out. I measured the sentiment I planned on using and drew a rectangle of its size to help me resize the other elements. Quick and easy, right? :) If you have a Silhouette machine, why not join us in this challenge? Happy crafting!
