  DT Day with - PaperCrafting World

Pin It
Sue from Sue's Paper Crafts with you today showing off my newest project made using an SVG file from this month's sponsor PaperCrafting World. 





I decided to stick with this month's challenge theme:


The prize for this month's challenge is a $20.00 gift card from PaperCrafting World.

My card started life as a shopping bag. My son and his wife gave me something in this bag and I held on to in hopes of someday finding the perfect project to make with it.





I choose PaperCrafting World's, "Card Circle Cut Out" SVG to work with.





The only changes I made to my cut file were to ungroup the file and put each layer onto it's own page.

I did make a couple of changes to the embellishments, the file comes with a vine and flowers to go on the vine but my, "happy birthday" stamp is too big to use that vine so I added a few jewel flowers instead. I made a belly band and bow with scraps from making the card.

Don't forget about this month's challenge at Connie Can Crop please come and join in the FUN!!

  DT Day with Paper Crafting World ~ Birthday Cake Bear

Pin It
Hi Everyone! It's Angela from Mermaids & Monograms! Today I want to share a cute card I made using a file from Paper Crafting World, our sponsor this month! 
I'm going to be honest, I'm not a very good paper piecer (is that a thing?!). I usually go the print/cut route to save me some time! But I pieced this little bear together to try it out. About an hour later (does it always take that long!??), shes finished! Shes adorable too ;) 



Supplies Used~ 
Jaded Blossom Birthday Treat Tags
Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Dies
Stickles Fruit Punch color
All cardstock is from my recycled stash. 
I have to use it up! The bin is over taking my area!
American Craft Ribbon
