SVG Files Shop is a recent discovery of mine. It has almost 300 wonderful images which you can use with a digital die-cutting machine. Trish is so talented to design all these – I wanted to buy so many files! And they are very reasonably priced. A great way to build up your SVG collection!

Read on for the chance to win YOUR CHOICE of 10 FILES from the SVG Files Shop!

Here’s a few of the SVG Files which go well with the Frosty Festivities theme…

1. Christmas, Holidays, Merry – I am in love with how the ‘Merry Christmas’ on this is spelled out with candy cane letters. So much fun! This would make a great window or wall decoration:

2. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year – The way this is arranged around a Christmas ornament is genius! I love the reindeer leaping and the twirly bits above the sentiment which end with ornaments hanging from them. The attention to detail is so impressive:

3. Happy Holiday – The wreath on this is so pretty, I’m sure I can use it on lots of projects all year round. The bow at the bottom is just lovely:

There’s also a new wood veneer set, called ‘Fresh New World’:

The diamond shape can be turned into a kite by tying some ribbon or twine through the hole at the bottom!

Finally there’s a ‘Picket Fence’ Spring Paper Pieces Set. This is a selection pack of the kinds of paper embellishments I offer, as it includes three 3×4″ die-cut cards, two journaling cards, and ten pieces of ephemera:

You can see I’ve gone with a spring / Easter / gardening / outdoors theme this month – can you tell I’m ready for the ready to get warmer so we can get back outside more often?!

Which item appeals to you? Are you ready for spring now?! I’ll be back tomorrow to share a spring-themed card using these bits and pieces.

Don’t forget to ‘like’ the Happy Scatter Facebook Page if you want sneak peeks of new items!

Bye for now,

Late Autumn layout using Happy Scatter

Lately I’d been spending so much time designing the new items for my Happy Scatter Etsy shop, and cutting them, cleaning them, packaging them etc, that I hadn’t had any time to play with them myself! Yesterday I finally got to break into my own sets, and made this layout…

Late Autumn:

Is it feeling Autumnal / Fall-like where you are? It’s not very much here yet, but we don’t tend to get a lot of golden leaves near us, and if we do it’s not until later in the year – the photo on this layout was taken on the 30th of November 2013!

I do love it when we eventually get some pretty leaves to crunch through. When me and my sister (that’s her with my kids in the photo) were driving along and spotted this wood with orange-yellow leaves, we went home for our cameras and headed back there for a walk and photo session!  It was the perfect photo to use with the ‘Lots Of Leaves’ die-cut shapes set:

I used the ‘A Lot Of Apples’ stencil on the background. I taped it with washi at the edges to hold it in place, and pressed it down with my finger so it was extra flat on the cardstock. Then I rubbed some Fired Brick Distress Ink through (using a foam blending pad), and I dripped through some Heidi Swapp gold mist droplets to give it some shine:

I like the speckled apples look:

I also used the ‘Which Way Arrows’ Stencil to doodle an arrow in the top right corner of the page, and coloured it in with a Promarker pen (Yellow Y657).

For the ‘Season Of Change’ wood veneer piece, I coloured in the sun with the same Promarker pen, and then added some Crystal Stickles on top:

The leaves were all stuck down with my Herma tape runner, it’s removable so I was able to rub away any glue dots which showed through the die-cut shapes:

What do you think? Is it colourful enough?!

Are you looking forward to or already enjoying Autumn?

Have a great day!
