Guess What!

I had a little surprise for my hubby when he met me for dinner tonight.  The SCS ladies were sooo helpful with their advice.  Good thing I will have lots of people to tell, because I have a lot of great ideas!

So, Easter is over, but I couldn't resist posting pics of my boy's Easter bags.  These were one of those projects that I tackled in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep.  My Michael woke in the morning and was so excited to find his bag.  His is the bunny.  The sheep is Mason's.

Click Here to download the Scut2 file for the bunny.  Click Here for the sheep.  Each page is marked with the color I used.  Please note, Each file has more than one page, and you have to pull it up under File, Open, not import svg, because it is a scut2 file, not an svg.  Enjoy!  If you want to resize, you could either move everything to one page, group it and resize it all together, or just play to get all the parts the right size.  Mine sit on an 8.5x11 bag, to give you and idea of size.

Girl's Night, Only a month late.

This is my other card from last month's Girl's Night.  Our theme was cuttlebug.  I also added 3 score lines with my Martha Stewart Scoring tool (which I love!)  The flowers are cut with scal and are found on the Saru's Flower Ding font, but any long petaled flower will do!  I ran a stylus down each petal from center to tip, to give them a little dimension.  Hope you enjoy!

Gerbera Daisy

Hi, for girl's night last week, I was totally stumped.  I finally saw some of the daisy pictures on the Paper, scissors, ink site, and was inspired.  Her scut files were down, so I wrote my own.  I hope you enjoy.  Click here to download the file.  Remember, to use this you go to open, file, NOT import svg!  I would add a Sentiment in the lower, right hand corner.  I chose to leave this blank to stamp later, so I could use it for any occasion.

And thank you to the wonderful ladies for including me and sharing their awesome ideas!
Directions for flowers:
Run the stylus down the center of each petal on the biggest 4 flowers from center to tip.  This curves them up and gives them a little shape.  Curly the petals on the inner 4 flowers around a toothpick to curl them to the center.  Some of the ladies left these a little more flat and they looked great too, but I really like the Gerbera look, so I did mine like this.    Find what works for you!
