May Link Up with Tya

First off, I wanted to announce the random winner of the Link Up last month… Thanks to everyone for participating! Participating in link ups is a fun way to interact online and attract people to your blog. Joan, Anderson, please email  me HERE and I’ll send you a $15 gift card to my SVG shop. I love your awesome little Owl card! Just adorable!

Hi everybody! It’s Tya hosting this month’s Link Up Party!  We can’t wait to see what you create with Lori’s files from her SVG shop or from the Silhouette Design Store! To be eligible to win you must use one of Lori’s files.

So my oldest daughter is graduating from high school in a few weeks and needless to say I have graduation on the brain!  So , I thought for this months Link Up we could focus on all things school or graduation. So to play along just choose your favorite school related or graduation related project from the numerous cut files that Lori has to offer! Think gift card or money holders, banners, or congratulations cards. Also don’t forget about all those special teachers – you could make a little gift for the end of the school year to say thank you to that special teacher as well!

For my projects I decided to do one of Lori’s box cards and a gift card holder. Here is what I did-

 

First up we have this awesome gift card holder. I used the Gift Card Holder – Congrats file. (Silhouette cut file here.) I love the ornate and fancy look of the congrats on the lid! Perfect for giving your favorite grad a little extra money for all of their hard work.

 Next up I did the Box Card Graduation file. (Silhouette cut file here.) I chose to do this card in my daughters school colors, but you can choose to do it in the traditional black and white. I also added a print and cut sentiment to the front panel of the box using the LW Tall font. (Silhouette file here.) These would make a great card or another really fun way to use them would be for table centerpieces or table decor for all of those graduation celebrations!

 Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to do something fun for your favorite teacher or grad!   Please come play and link up your creations for your chance to win a gift certificate for $15.00 to Lori’s SVG Shop!

A Little Birthday Gift with Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It’s Kathy today with a sweet little birthday card & gift set!  I used two new files from Lori’s Shop, the A2 Sliding Candle Cupcake Card and the 2 Boxes on a letter sized page files.  Combined they make a such a nice gift.  Take a peek:

In the Silhouette Store:  card file, box file

The papers are from Lori’s new I Love Sunshine collection for Echo Park.  The colors are so bright and cheery!  I love how you can put your sentiment on the candle of the card; It slides up from the cupcake.  I used Lori’s Cheerful Sketch font and my Silhouette Sketch Pens to write Happy Birthday.  The box is just the right size  for a small gift.  I put 4 Hershey’s Treasures in mine!  And that little bow is the perfect finishing touch!   That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

Octagon Teapot Tutorial by Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing this beautiful new 3D Teapot 2 SVG (Silhouette file HERE) that Lori added this week.  This would make a great gift for Mother’s Day!  You could fill it with your Mom’s favorite tea bags or with a small gift and a gift card.

I used paper from the Lori’s Jack & Jill Collection for Echo Park Paper.  This large floral print is perfect for the teapot.

To assemble the teapot, first cut everything out from the papers of your choice.

If you choose a detailed pattern paper like this for your project, I suggest leaving all the pieces on your mat.  That way the pattern will match up easily as you glue the panels in place.

Next,  apply glue to the glue tabs of the two teapot pieces (white), glue them together and the glue the end tabs together to form a circle.

Now you are ready to start forming the octagon shape.

 

Apply glue to the glue tabs as show and line them up with the adjacent panel.  It helps to fold the panel with the glue tab out, apply the glue and then line up the panel as closely as possible to the score line.  Be patient on this portion of the assembly.  Wait a few seconds to allow the glue to dry slightly before moving on to the next tab to prevent shifting.

Continue all the way around glueing the tabs in place.  Follow the same steps with the base and lid.

Glue the base in place. Glue the two pieces of the handle together folding taps out and then glue in place.  Fold the spout in half, fold tabs out and glue in place.

Finally, glue the decorative panels in place. So cute!!

Be sure to check out all the new files added to the shop this week.
