Apple for the Teacher - NOT!

We live in Georgia and the kids have been in school since the beginning of August.  I still find this incredibly weird since I grew up in New Jersey and school always started the first Tuesday after Labor Day.  The only nice thing is the last day of school is the Wednesday before Memorial Day. 

I created a new SVG file for all those school scrapbook pages people will be making in the coming weeks and months.  This one includes a cute worm coming out to say hello.  Not sure this would make a good impression on the first day of school but he was so cute I couldn't resist. 

The SVG file produces a good size paper piece so please resize as needed. I did make a test piece so all the pieces cut nice.  I hope you enjoy!

Treat Cup Instructions

If I were really talented I would have created step by step instructions on how I created the Coffin Treat Card below.  Actually, it really has more to do with time then anything else.  I modified a technique used by Dawn Griffith on her video for a Valentine Treat Cup holder. If I find time I will write up the directions but for now here's a link to Dawn's video...

Halloween Treat Card

Last weekend I worked on creating a card that would hold a clear plastic treat cup.  Sometime ago I purchased a few of these treat cups at Archivers. They're made from Stampendous and they have a backing to entirely close the cup. I cut the backing off and clipped the corners so it would lie flat against the card.  I remember that Dawn Griffith created a valentine treat card sometime ago and based on her technique I created my Coffin Treat Card.  I used SCAL to create the cut file, embossed with Cuttlebug Swirls, and the downloaded a digital image of the title.  I haven't finished the inside yet but that's coming this weekend. The recipient of the card will pull the tag on the right to get the treats out.  I now realize if have many more to make for nephews, niece, and friends.  I hope you enjoy this!!

Creepy Tree

Good morning everyone!

It's been forever since I posted.  Not sure why - just got wrapped up in day to day things.  But I'm back and ready to post some new crafty stuff.  My online friends at the cricutlovers Yahoo group have been inspirational and have given me the guts to try and create my own SVG files for all to share.  Here's my first attempt in time for Halloween.  The photo shows the yellow eyes but the file has them separate so you can cut the tree in one color and the eyes in another. I'm a complete novice at this so if the link or cut file doesn't work please let me know.  Thanks so much checking this out!
