"Get Well" Baseball Box Card


I made this card for my father-in-law who’s recovering from knee replacement surgery. Since it’s almost baseball season and he’s a big Chicago Cubs fan, I thought it would be just the thing to cheer him up a bit.

He's one of the sweetest people you'll meet, and I hope it's a reminder for him ...

Design Inspiration: Claddagh Heart

I just had to see how our Hanging Geometric Heart project would look in GREEN with a pretty gold claddagh heart design on the front. I love it!

Not only would it make a lovely treat for someone come March, but who wouldn't love it as part of some St. Patrick's Day decor. For something so special-looking, it's hard to believe how quickly ...

Top October Downloads of All Time

Out of curiosity, I just tallied up the most popular Kits during each October since SVGCuts began in 2009. It breaks down to about half Halloween, then Christmas/Fall just about makes up the other half. :)

Missing this step is a VERY common problem that new users have. And there's really no way for anyone to know that it's necessary.

We get several messages a day from people asking ...

How Do You Cut SVG Files with a Brother ScanNCut Machine?

We aren't "affiliated" with Brother, however, we regularly get e-mails from people asking how to cut SVG files with their Brother ScanNCut machine.

So, let's break it down! :)

"What kind of glue should I use?"

I haven't tried TOO many other glues, but sometimes people ask me what kind of glue I use.

I've been doing paper craft projects regularly for about 10 years, and my absolute favorite is Scotch Tacky Glue. It comes in 2 oz. bottles and 4 oz. bottles.

It used to be called "Quick-Dry ...
