I love Sureya line-art!!!! I have been a big fan of this DeviantArt Artist for so many years now. I go back time and time again just to see if any thing new has been posted. If you are interested in her art work check it out at: http://sureya.deviantart.com/
This year I though, instead of just drooling over her work I need to do something with what I see. So I started making the following cards.
And as nice this Mason Jar Box Card was I didn’t think it was worth the $1.49 she was asking for. If you look at it closely, it just a Jar SVG with two rectangles on its side. I guess its a box but I have always felt that a box had a base. You know to make it a box. My guess the side are about one inch maybe an inch and half. With a second jar “box” inside, maybe equaling half an inch. with random flowers and leaves slapped on to some blue card stock poles.
So I looked through my SVG that I had made…. However now that I think about it I am sure you can find any Jar SVG on the Silhouette Cameo website. Then added two rectangles on each end both equaling an inch. Put some score marks so it could fold. Repeated the process only making the rectangles half an inch so it could fit inside the “box” card.
Then I searched in my inventory for flowers and leaves, elongated the tabs and made them look like stems rather than just slapping on what ever color. And this is what mind looked like:
If you want to try this project yourself click on the image below and go a head and print it. You can even port it in to your silhouette cameo or Cricut studio.
I was able to make a video! I know crazy business right? Who knew I would be able to do that! Okay, okay back to the craft at hand. As I stated in this video I made this on the silhouette, I used the balloon technique which I did in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XFDAoT5pMg.
Forgive me I don’t know why I keep saying Triangle when I mean Rectangle. Darn angles have me all twiterpated but I do know the difference between these two angles I really do!

Well it’s now Saturday morning 12:26 am to be accurate, and YouTube is taking forever to post my tutorials. This is super bad since my Friday Night Highlight is starting to become Saturday Morning. Ah well at least I’m getting it done and with no kids trying to sabotage me or call me away because they have a crayon stuck up someone’s nose, I can deal with a little lateness. Let start off with some freebies so you can duplicate my card and save yourself some hassle.

Well this week’s challenge was brought to you by “My Scrap Room” you should check them out. The group of ladies is really awesome http://myscraproom.ning.com/
The challenge was Valentine themed and as you know I’m not one for Valentine stuff since it just a sore reminder of bad birthday, bad gifts, and people forgetting. However since the whole time I was doing this challenge I kept my husband in mine, meaning I did this as if I was making this for him. I think it turn out pretty cool.
Well Valentine’s Day is coming around again and I guess some one could consider the card below a Valentine’s Day Card. However since my birthday lands on February 14th I really don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day for a few reasons.
Here is Monica’s Top 5 Reason why I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day:
It’s my birthday not Valentine’s Day. Card Makers had a slow sales month in February thus the day was born to pick up sales.
Each time I go out on my birthday the price doubled on every restaurant, venue, and Movie Theaters.
Locations are packed, good luck trying to find parking.
I keep getting hearts and valentines candy rather than a Happy Birthday Card. I not one for pink shape hearts.
Gifts prices go up on my Valentine’s Day, which is why I get stuck with hearts and valentine candy. It’s the only thing that’s cheap.
However I do celebrate my husband and I anniversary on February 1st which is why I have created this card below. It is also being put in Cardz Crazy RED, BLACK, & WHITE challenge. So that killed two birds with one stone. http://www.cardztv.blogspot.com/
