These are a few more ideas that I came up with on Twitch.
For all you Pumpkin Spice Drinkers this one is for you! We though it best to cut the top to see if we can get more Pumpkin goodness in to the SVG.
Then we got a bit fancy and made some thing for Valentine’s Day.
Well on Monday August 6th 2018 I will be streaming live at 8pm CST. To make the following project.
If you want to follow along come join us if you like the project and want to make it yourself you could find in my store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com. This one will be given to my son to bestow on is teacher tomorrow. I hope she likes it as it took me forever to color those figures.
So on Monday July 30th on https://www.twitch.tv/airideviant. I created four different project. A lemonade jar holding some sweet sweet lemonade, a Halloween shaker jar tag, a Valentin’s Day plastic shaker tag, and a Fairy in a jar Card. Which you can find at store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com for only 0.99. I will be streaming again this Friday at 8CST. If you want to check for any changes check out my facebook at www.facebook.com/UniqueDesignsByMonica.
This jar had only one modification which an easily done by hand or cutting machine. I just hallowed out the middle into a rounded edge rectangle.
Very much like the jar above I only to make one modification and that is add a score line near the lid to make it fold. Since you can resize the file you can make all this project as big or a small as you want.
To show you guys how versatile this file is I went from frame type of shaker to plastic covering.
This final jar was used as an embellishment to make a sweet card to give to any friend.
Welcome to new SVG release! Where I will be showcasing what been posted on the store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com
Nothing more Christmas then having a bit of Nutmeg Holly Jolly.
Check out this DS Game Santa Gift Box. I love this designs, perfect for Christmas in July!
I loving that Maple Leave Box, perfect for this up and coming season.
I can all most smell that Pumpkin Spice in the air with this SVG.
Can get any more trick or treat then this cute pumpkin box.
I may have been thinking about Pumpkins a little to much this July.
I couldn’t leave out the Pumpkin Popcorn Box! It wouldn’t feel like Fall with out it.
Well its July 12th and its 2:12am. As you can tell I have a bit of insomnia and since I can’t take away massive amount of energy I thought it best to work. So I started working on Tabitha Sweets Paper Doll SVG. I have two machines that test my SVG on. my Silhouette Cameo and my Cricut Explore one.
Here are the photos from the testing of this SVG:
She turned out super cute! I can’t wait to have her in the store. I believe she will be loaded on Sunday July 15th, 2018. She fits perfect on an A2 Size card.
I have upgraded from Designer to Business. Honestly I should have done this from the very beginning but I was cheap and apparently love to struggle. Ugh… why do I always love to do things the hard way.
Anyway if you haven heard. Silhouette School notified me letting me know that Silhouette.Inc is having a sale. If you want to know what its all about check them out at: https://www.silhouetteschoolblog.com
Promo code is SILSCHOOL , if you miss it its right there below:
Well I did it, I went ahead and did it. I feel wrong and dirty after buying it. (Shiver) I bought the Cricut Explore 1. (an out cry of a thousand whiles sound out). I wasn’t able to find the testers I needed for all the SVG I have waiting in the wing. And I need to have more items put into my store.uniquedesignsbymonica.com ASAP. With no other options I looked on the inter webs and found one.
You just don’t understand the hardship it is working with Cricut. The fact I started off with a 6 x 12 little machine, with its many expansive and expensive cartridges. Oh the money I dished out. Then I got a second machine 6 x 12 to have my family help me with the many orders I was getting for embellishments. Soon after they introduced a 12 x 12 which I also got rather then cutting my paper unnecessary. (oh the shame..)
Then they introduced Cricut Design Space which allowed me to cut my own images with the 12 x 12 mat. It was amazing again and all was well with the world. Until 2016 -2017 hit and they where announcing “some changes”. I didn’t care, I can work on my own designs, I don’t need a new Cricut Machine. You can keep your fancy Expression 2, your Mini, your Explore Air and your Air 2. No thank you I don’t need your Maker, what I have is just fine.
Then I moved to Tennessee, thinking the world was nothing but roses and cupcakes. Then it happened my machine won’t connect to Design Space. Why? Did I break my Cricut? No it seems fine? What is going on? So I called Cricut Support and they give me the bad news. “Sorry Cricut Design Space no longer supports that model”.
After so much money, after so much time. They pull the plug on my simple 12 x 12 Expression. It was just a few years old, its not like I need blue tooth or a fancy gizmos to make it work. It was perfect! Out with the old and in with the new by force. You want to use the Cricut Design Space you need to get with the program otherwise you have to find other means. Which I did…. but alas with no response.
But thankfully not at a $400 price tag. I went on to Facebook Marketplace where these nice ladies from Beachbum Farms in Kentucky sold me a slight used one for $100 bucks. By the way if your looking for some embroidery or super cute cups check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BeachbumFarms/ .
Its a bittersweet getting this machine. I’m discussed with myself that Cricut forced me to get this machine in order to use there online services. But at least it was cheap enough to swallow my pride for me to continue to work on my SVG’s.
Take my advice if you are a newbie and are looking for a cutting machine that wont steer you wrong choose a Silhouette Cameo. One with a 12 x 12 mat, you will never have to play for cartridges, you will never have to upgrade to a new machine every 6 to 7 years, and you will never have to go on to the internet to use it. Because its software based an the only reason you would need to go on the internet is to get an upload or if you want to buy an SVG from their store. But honestly why would you want to, when you can get it for free on https://lovesvg.com/.
I did a live stream recreating to some degree the “Character Catches the Heart Cards” by Papercraft Essentials Magazine. Now I will give you the dimensions I used on one of the card. Since each card is pretty much the same but the placement of the circles and middle bar are moved.
You Will Need:
- Black Ink
- Markers (I used Chromatrix)
- 2 White Card stock (8 1/2 x 11)
- 1 Colored Card stock (8 1/2 x 11)
- Stamps (any stamp you fancy)
- Sentiment (some thing that will work nicely with your stamp)
- Acrylic block (only if you have cling or mounted stamps)
- black pen
- If you don’t have a cutting machine like I do, you can cut down your white card stock to 5 1/2 x 8 on the short end of the sheet. Then fold in the middle to give you an standard A2 card size.
- With the excess white paper that you just cut, you can make 3 x 3 1/2 plus a 1 1/2 circle
- For your colored card stock you will be able to cut 5 7/8 x 3 3/4 and a 5 1/2 x 1/2 plus 1 3/4 circle from an 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.
To see how I assembled my card take a look at my video below.
