If we receive at least 15 entries, the prize for this challenge will be a $5 Gift Certificate for SVG files from the Creative Pointe's ON LINE STORE.
You'll find over 150 SVG files/sets available for all your paper crafting projects.
If we have less than 15 entries, the winner will receive this SVG set: FANCY HEARTS. Winner will be randomly chosen from all submissions.
One extra special entry will receive the "Creative Choice" button.
Any entry (that features an electronic cutting file) geared towards "LOVE" will be accepted: Valentines, Weddings, Engagements, etc. Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts.
First up is a beautiful red and white card from Octavia. She used the Valentine Set and the Valentine Hearts set for this card. She says: "For the background I layerd two pieces of vellum--one pattern (striped) and one plain-- which I embossed with the circle heart stamp. I then used the heart border from the Valentine Hearts set for the top and bottom borders. I used the word "LOVE" from the Valentine set. For the inside I combined the two sets again, using the heart and the cupids. I had fun making this card because it took me out of my comfort zone. Layering the vellum was a challenge. I decided to use wet glue so that it would buckle some. In order to hide the adhesive, I put it behind all the elements on the front of the card." See more on Octavia's blog: T's Corner For Scrappin'
Ruth used the Tea Cup Card to create her lovely project. She says: "There are a lot of traditional symbols we think of when we think of love. A cup of tea might not be high on your list, but for the women in my family it is. I was so happy that Cindy had created this file. It really is perfect for me! Stop on by my blog to find out how and I sure hope you'll share your project for love and join in The Creative Cutting Challenge!" Ruth's blog: Paper and Musings
Shelissa combined files to create this stunning black and white dress card. She says: "Who doesn’t want to be in love, fall in love or be the 'Bride 2B'? For this challenge I used the dress card WPC cut file from the Pazzles Inspiration Craft Room and combined it with the Bride 2B SVG cut file which can be purchased on the creative pointe website."

Tina created a two page Smashbook entry detailing her 20th wedding Anniversary and the identical gifts she and her hubby gave each other..dinner at a new Chinese buffet restaurant! The Chinese Take Out file was just the thing to use on these pages. She says: " I used the fortune cookies for displaying the date and the fortunes that I was able to stow in my pocket for this layout. The new place even gave the women a rose when they walked in..a very nice touch". To see more of Tina's work, head over to her blog: Tina's Scrap Corner
Carmen created this very cool mixed media piece using the zebra heart from the Valentine Hearts set. She says: "I decided on a mixed medium sign for this Challenge. I used Creative Pointe’s Valentine Hearts – Zebra heart. Just love the combination of hot pink and black. The base has tissue paper and gesso then sprinkled with black, pink and iridescent glitter."
