Designer Spotlight - Celeste's Girly Thank You Card

Share/Bookmark

Congratulations to Celeste Lombas, our first SVGCuts Guest Designer! Celeste was one of our very first fans and holds a special place in our crafty hearts. We've watched Celeste's cardmaking talent grow, and always enjoy seeing her latest projects.

Celeste created this Girly Thank You Card using some of her favorite SVGCuts designs and techniques. A big fan of the color pink, she incorporated it big time into this feminine design. "I just love SVGCuts files. My all time ...


Mary's Corner - Beach Bum Layout

You can almost feel the sand between your toes looking at this layout.  I had a blast working with our Beach Bum SVG Collections (I, II, III) and this beachy paper by My Mind's Eye.  I 3D-popped our cute sandcastle caption on our Scalloped Frame (freebie).  I used two beachy photo frames and love the postage-stamp edged frame with this layout because it gives the feel ...


Mary's Corner - Summer Cherry Pennants

Pennants are so hot right now, and it's so easy to achieve a multitude of looks.  Pick a theme and go with it!  Dinner party?  Girls' tea party?  Graduation, birthday or Father's Day?  Just choose your papers and add a few die cuts!  My mom is having a Summer Cherry themed tea party this weekend, so I cut a few of my favorite kitchen cherry die cuts and found some adorable paper, and voila!  This will make a great hostess ...

Mary's Corner - Generations of Moms Scrapbook Page

I had fun pairing this pretty K&Company paper with the Extras in our new Mother's Day Cards SVG Kit to create a pretty page for my scrapbook!  The cheerful yet elegant colors and ladylike patterns were perfect.  I used the Vines Square element in the background, backed by a blacked-out version of itself in a complementary pattern.  Why not go all-out girly for a holiday celebrating Mom?  I used several pretty 3D flowers from the same SVG Kit with a ...


Mary's Corner - Sweet Garden Scrapbook Page

I'm so stoked about this page!  I've been seeing potted hydrangeas for sale this week at my local Whole Foods and am enchanted by the big pom-pom clusters of pink blossoms.  I worked with our Moonlight Garden Party SVG Collection and scrapped this adorable photo of Leo's mom with her new Grandbaby from this Easter.  Don't you just love the little smirk?  I didn't know someone could have so much personality at only three months ...


Mary's Corner - Garden Invitation

I'm so happy with this gorgeous summer party invitation, and can’t wait to mail them!  Better yet, you could totally change the caption to “Happy Birthday” or “Thank You,” etc.  I always have an upcoming birthday or a thank-you note to send.

I loved working with this gorgeous BoBunny Jazmyne Glitter paper and coordinating Bazzil cardstock.  When I found it while shopping, I HAD to have it.  And this time, all the Bazzil cardstock I used (just picked it ...


Mary's Corner - Made With Love by Jackie Moon Photo Shoot

I loved scrapping these photos of me and my very dear best friend Jackie Moon!  Not only did she crochet these accessories--she designed them!  (You can download her designs at Made With Love by Jackie Moon.)  I LOVE Jackie's style--natural, feminine, laid-back--so what better place for a photo shoot than the forest?

We modeled her gorgeous crochet designs and Leo shared ...


Mary's Corner - Baby Ryan's Birthday Card and Gift Tag

My little baby nephew Ryan turns one soon and I found the neatest handmade baby toys for him on Etsy!  A Crinkle Sensory Toy from IcingOnTheCupcake (http://www.etsy.com/shop/IcingOnTheCupcake) and a Ribbon Play Ball from MamaMade (http://www.etsy.com/shop/mamamade).  I love supporting independent crafters and I love that the toys are special, one-of-a-kind, and made with love.

Of course I had to make a special card and gift tag!  I'm really happy with how these came out!  They look so gentle yet playful.  I ...


Mary's Corner - Whimsical Spring Cards

I just picked up some fresh, adorable Spring paper by American Crafts - the Dear Lizzy Line.  Such pretty color combinations and graphics!  I picked out my favorite four sheets and here's what I did with them!  The ribbons, stamps and most of the brads are also from the same line.  These came out so darn cute, I can't stand it!  Better yet, you only need two SVG Collections to make all three cards!
