The Made in the USA SVG kit has much more then just this card and I thought you’d want to maybe make some of the other things, too. Like the 3D USA letters, Banner, Cupcake holders, and a Whimsical Sam’s 3D Hat!! See All HERE!
The SVG kit was perfect cut files for the entire card and came with a perfectly sized envelope with score lines. No need to to manually score just fold over the flaps and glue!
One thing I love to do is sew on my paper projects just like I did here on the girls dress and the boys shorts. Aren’t they just darling?
They are having fun just like I did makingthis card and I hope you give it a whirl, too!
Have a Safe and Fun Independence Day, Everyone!
Thank you for Stopping by and be a Doll and Leave a Comment ;D
Father’s Day is just around the corner and for our family that means tradition! Every year we take Dan to Dayton Car Show full of vintage cars, trucks, bikes, you name it it’s there lining the entire historical town’s main street! There are races which go right past our favorite bakery where the apple fritters are Freshly baked and melt in your mouth! Oh yummm! And speaking of food you name the vendors down the side roads, they’ve got it! From Greek, Filipina, Italian and plain ole American hamburger it’s all there!
Then, it’s off to our favorite fishing hole and boy do we catch FISH! oh Yes! Tons and Tons, in just a few hours we’ve all caught our limit and ready to head home for the big fish fry!
When I saw Echo Park Paper’s ‘The Great Outdoors’ Mini Kits, I knew I had to have it and actually bought Two [one to hoard] but it won’t last too long I have two boys here and they both love to fish and scrap! haha!
So, here’s what I came up with for my hubby for Father’s Day! His very own Fish Box full of all kinds of ‘goodies’ and a sweet coordinating card
Yes- It opens! Pretty spiffy, eh?!
The open box…lots of room for all kinds of things like …ahemmm–> Tackle! How about some delicous homebaked cookies for an unexpected surprise YUM!
The Box was created with Echo Park Paper’s ‘The Great Outdoors’ Mini Kit and SVGcuts‘Father’s Day Mega Pack’which can be found by clicking on one of the buttons in the left side bar.
Yes! The Fish box opens and ready to fill with all kinds of goodies.
I edited the SVGcuts Fish file and created sides and a lid and cut the pieces out.
The Card and Envelope, I just simply cut out the SVGcuts fish card filesand assembled and decorated them, using Echo Park Papers mini kit and that’s it! Easy Peasy!
I hope he likes it…can’t wait to give it to him
Have a Crafty weekend and Thank you for Stopping by and taking time to Visit here! See ya Soon
Do you love box cards? Check theseout! There are Five Unique Box Cardsfor you to make for your loved ones! Mix, Match them and create something entirely different for any occasion!
Thank you for stopping by and I want to know what you think about these picks, brought to you by Fleurette Bloom Designs and SVGcuts!? Do you have ’em? Do you need ’em? Did I forget something? Let me know!
Even though this kit has a Card Kit inside the Collection with Printables it also has SVGs which I printed my owls and limb from. The limb wraps around to the back of the card!
I used the Card Kit in the Collection and blue, pink, brown, wood grain and owl textured papers, from Fleurette Bloom’s Little Critter’s Collection kit [printable digital papers] to make up the Bows, mats and cardbase. Also, with SVG Kit MaisonMadelineand using the Gears from the Extras folder I made the Eyelashes. Then, added a sweet lil bow from Trendy Twine!
In addition, to Fleurette Bloom’s Whimsical and Fun designs remember to check out This Weeks Freebie-Mini File Folders!! Cuteeeeeee!
I Appreciate Your Visit, to see more of my projects with Fleurette Bloom Designs please go Here and Stop by Soon to See what I’m up to Next!
Once Cut out you’ll want to organize pieces 1-9 and start adhering them together starting with #1 and so forth around and close up the top part of the boot.
For the Toe of the boot just adhere together the three pieces, pop-out to form the toe and glue to the top part of the boot. I also cut out the pieces for the Sole of the boot and panels.
The last photo show the bottom of the sole and the side panels, these all get adhere with a tacky glue. All of these ‘denim’ boot pieces got inked up with ‘Faded Blue Jeans’ Tim Holtz distress ink.
Congratulations! You’re ‘Boot Vase’ is Finished and ready for a half-dozen Lily Pencils!
Paper Lily Pencils
First, you will want to open your editing software I used Silhouette Studio Designer Edition [SSDE] software and from your SVGCuts ‘3D Flowers’ Collection SVG kit locate the ‘Daffodil’ flower file. [down below in the Comments Box, I have directions how to do this is SCALand Design Space.
Then, I edited the flower part by using the ‘draw an elipse’ tool, draw a circle right in the center covering some of the ‘leaf’ part.
Next, select the circle and the flower part and click on ‘object’, ‘modify’, ‘subtract’! All the flower pieces should be apart now. My petals measure 3.720″ x 1.310″ but you can skew and shape yours any way you want them. Ahhh…love technology these days ;p
To create the ‘slit’ at the base of each flower petal [you only have to do this to ONE of the petals and discard the other five petals] click on the ‘draw a line’ tool and make a line about 3/4″ from the bottom center of the petal.
Now, group and duplicate the petal for six-petals.
You are now ready to watch the Video below which will show you each step to shape and compete your bouquet!
Paper Lily Pencil Video Tutorial
Yay! Congrats! You’re finished with your flowers For the Boot assembly video go here!
Arrange them in your boot vase and stand back you’ve created a piece of paperArt anyone would love to be gifted or keep for yourself- after all you did a Beautiful job!
Card and Envelope
Now- that you’re Boot Vase and Lily Pencils are all done, you can add a Card and Envelope!
First, Select the ‘Howdy Partner’ Card and Envelope folders and cut all pieces [I edited mine, since I needed a Happy Birthday card] using papers from any printed paper as you wish. Embellish as desired and you’re done!
Not only was I challenged to begin with, with my concussion, But the pattern was written by an UK designer and I’m an American Irish girl! I’ll get back to that here in a few, after I share the finished sweet set!
After months working on this ‘gem’, I’m quite pleased with it!
As you can see, I altered the pattern and created a more cap sleeve rather then the long. I also changed the neck to white and didn’t use so many tiny Knitted strawberry flowers as it called for. And I knitted the ‘Pips’ [strawberry SEEDS], which I like a lot more.
I used Cot-Lin yarn by Knit Picks and love the subdued colorways. They aren’t so shocking and defined red, white and green and just yummy.
The pattern calls for a size 6 and size 0 for the flowers, but I used size 2 Harmony circular needles for the flower petals and centers.
Speaking of Circulars- This pattern is written for Flat work! No, in the round. I wish that was stated right up front, I had no idea until I bought the pattern and got into it!! But that’s how I roll…should have asked questions, instead of diving in and assuming! lol Maybe, that’s due to I’m still a Young knitter! haha
TIP for my American friends- UK knitting Lingo as follows:
yrn= YO or Yarn Over
stocking stitch= Stockinette
So of course, with Flat work, there’s a LOT of time intense seaming to be had, but the results are oh Great!
I loved working with the Cotton/Linen blend yarn and I just love, love the way it turned out!
I’ve started a couple more projects working with Anne Geddes Baby Sport yarn and talk about yummy…stay tuned!

Hi Everyone! KimberlyRae here to share with you how I made my Baby Buggy and Card!
Using Carta Bella’s Baby Mine Girl paper kit, I cut the SVG files with my Silhouette Cameo for both the baby buggy and the baby bottle from patterned papers within this sweet collection. Then, I decorated both with additional embellishments to make them even sweeter, including jewel brads for each of the wheels.
I’m Always needing a card…Aren’t we All? and today I grabbed my dies and stamps and had so much fun whippin’ up my Thank you card! It was so fast and Fun to make. I’m pretty Excited to share with you some Lawn Fawn goodies, today.
For my card I used “Into the Woods” stamp and die set to create the fox, clouds and tree trunk.
I used Memento ink Cocoa Brown and colored the fox and the house with my Copic markers.
The tree trunk, I used Ranger Distress Ink color ‘Peacock Feathers’, as well as for the bird and ‘many thanks’.
For the stitched card I used “Stitched Journaling Card” Die set!
Every time I see any of the Lawn Fawn products, they just make me so Happy and gives me those warm fuzzies inside!
I love how my card turned out [I know a bit ‘clean’ for me, but I love it]!
I hope you have enjoyed my little Thank you card and got some of your own warm fuzzies inside.

I know, I know I’ve been absent for a time! I’ve miss you all and I’m happy to be blogging again! Be warned, this will be a long one 😉
So much has been going on – Life is crazy! In November , I was in a major car crash and even though my car was totalled, I came out of it alive with my left side all bummed up, concussion and whiplash. I’m still in physical therapy, but healing more and more everyday. I’m up to 10 minute walks, short driving and I’m able to blog, today. Yay me! So, for those of you going through similar experience be encouraged and know it does get better, with time.
On top of that, we transferred jobs and made a Huge move [I say ‘huge’, since it’s been 13 years since our last move] in September!! My youngest kid adjusted quite quickly and loves his new school. My wayward 18yo, came back to live with us, in December and he also loves his new school. This School District ROCKS!!!
And speaking of Rockin! Craftingis about the only thing that kept my sanity, living in our motorhome while our new house was closing. It took FIVE long months to close, but our home in the Northwest trees by the lake is finally ours! Woot!
