Challenge #18: Anything Goes

Welcome Back to Season Two!!
Hope everyone had a fantastic summer and is ready to get back into the cutting groove.
We've expanded our Design Team so now you'll have at least nine fabulous cut file projects to inspire you every other week.  For those of you who want to play along, we'll still be offering a prize for the random winner of each challenge.  Plus one special entry will still be highlighted with a shout out and given the coveted "Creative Choice" button.  So grab your crafty cutting friends and lets get started!  

Prize for this challenge is a $5 Gift Certificate for SVG files
from the Creative Pointe's ON LINE STORE.
You'll find over 140 SVG files/sets available for all your paper crafting projects.
Winner will be randomly chosen from all submissions.

One extra special entry will receive the"Creative Choice" button.

Here's what the Design Team came up with for you...
Carolyn created this two page layout of her great grandson Carson attending his first car show with his grandpa.  She used the CAR SET to cut photo mats, the heading and journaling blocks.  The shaped street, street lines and stop sign are from "Birthday Haul" by Creative Kuts Crop-on-Line Kit.  Please visit her blog for more details:  Granny Ma's Creative Blog

New DT member Carmen created a Chinese Take out box and says:  "I used The Creative Pointe's CHINESE TAKE OUT SVG files for embellishment. The actual take out box is from Sherry K. Designs, stamp is from Mark's Finest Papers - Be Virtuous -and the paper, ink and twine is from Close to my Heart.  I used my trusty eCraft by Craftwell to cut out the SVG files."  Carmen invites you to check out her blog for the paper fortune cookie tutorial:  Carmen's Creations

Our other new DT member Ruth created a cool two page layout using the BOWLING SET.  She says:  "Hi!  I'm so happy to be here on the CCC Design Team!  I absolutely have a blast using my Silhouette to cut whatever shape I need for a project and everything coordinates just the way I need it to because I'm making it myself!  For my layout, I am scrapping about a geocache event that my husband hosted where they went to see The Big Lebowski, one of my hubby's favorite movies.  I knew that the Creative Pointe's Bowliong Set was perfect for my page, with the bowling pin border (doubling as a subtle journaling area) and the bowler supporting the bowling theme of the movie!  I hope you'll join in with the challenge!  I can't wait to see what you create!"  To see more, please head over to Ruth's blog:  Paper and Musings

Cindy created a layout using the CATS set and says:  "I put this layout together to remember a very special scrapbook event that is held in honor of a good friend who was a victim of domestic violence.  Each year I and my peeps have dressed up in a theme.  Last year we were the "Croppy Cats", so my Cat set was perfect to use to create the heading and journaling element."  For all the details and a link to this year's "Mary's Dream" event, please go to Cindy's blog:  The Creative Pointe

Vicki created two cute cards for this challenge using the new PHOTO PROPS set.  She says:  "The Creative Pointe's Photo Props SVG set has so many possibilities.  Now, the most obvious is to cut the props exactly as Cindy has scaled them for true photo props (these were SO MUCH FUN at our wedding!!).  I wanted to give you even more inspiration for this fabulous set.  After being away from the craft room for a while this summer, I was getting very low on birthday cards, especially some suitably masculine ones.  These punny cards were quick and easy to make using scrap patterned papers, Cricut, and laser printer.  For more details please check out Vicki's blog:  Paper Squirrel

Octavia also used the BOWLING SET to create her layout.  She says "Using the Bowling Set I cut the pins for the highlights of my page and made circles for my pin set up.  Using the "Let's Roll" and the bowling ball separately gave the page more dimension and action.  For my picture mats, using SCAL, I welded the names to the mats before cutting, positioning the names at different points.  This was a great set to use for our ladies night at the lanes!"  To find out more, please click over to Octavia's blog:  T's Corner For Scrappin'

Next up is Shelissa who created a very unique mask using the CAT MASK.  She says:  "I used the cat face SVG cutting file from The Creative Pointe.  The cat face, eyelashes and whiskers were cut out using my Pazzles Inspiration die cutting machine. The face was painted using Viva 3d Stamp Paint. I used diamond  Stickles to decorate around the eyes and nose. Lastly, I used some bling that I picked up from the scrapbook expo."  Check out Shelissa's blog to see a video of this project:  Shelissa"s Craft Studio

Pam created a tag using the GEAR FRAME to create this lovely tag.  She says:  "I used distress inks and gelato to distress my tag and cuts.  Jute twine and crinkle ribbon were used for accents and the "for you" is hand written."  Please visit Pam's blog for more details:  Scrapple Tree

Last but not least is Tina with a sweet layout of her dogs using a file from the DOG ELEMENTS set.  She says:  "During my hunt for some metal family labels for a layout,I came across the metal dog tabs and frames and knew I had to do a dog layout too. I used the dog tag from the Dog Elements collection for part of my title included the (s) on the side for the plural of the dogs. It was a good addition to the layout. (aquainted) Common misspelling of acquainted, as you can see by my title I mis-spelled-- do I fix or let it go?"   For more details about the layout and to answer Tina's question swing over to her blog:  Tina's Scrap Corner
