Challenge #32: Spring


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: LEAVES & BRANCH.  Winner will be randomly chosen from all submissions.

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

Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts.

Heather created a gorgeous vintage style Easter card using the Rolled Roses and Fancy Flourishes-One files.  Check out her blog for all the details:  My Artistic Adventures

Carolyn created a scrapbook layout using the Race Car with Numbers because she said spring brings in NASCAR and other auto racing.  She also says:  "And the Race Is On title is from the SilhouetteAmerica online store; the race track I created from a image located on the Internet; and the borders and flags from a SVG file (from where I can't remember right now).  I also created the border for the photo mat and placed the flag in the one corner.  I used Numbers 1 as the lead car, and 2 & 4 for my great-grandchildren's ages."  For more, check out Carolyn's blog:  Granny Ma's Creative Blog

Carmen created a lovely slider card that features the butterfly from the  Garden Friends 1 set.  See more at her blog:  Carmen's Creations

Ruth used the sign from the Flower Set One to create this gorgeous spring layout.  She says:  "This is my favorite time of the year! When the world comes alive with bulbs sending flowers up through the long frozen ground! Come celebrate spring with the Creative Cutting Challenge! However you like to celebrate spring, we'd love to see your creations! My layout celebrates those first spring bulbs blooming in my yard finally after our long, harsh winter. Cindy's Flower Set 1 flower sign really was a sign for spring! Spend a little time creating and get out and enjoy the Spring!"  More at Ruth's blog:  Paper and Musings

 Cindy created a gift bag perfect for all the Showers that happen during spring using the Watering CanLeaves & Branch and Flower Set One files.  She says:  "Last spring I was planning a wedding shower for my sister.  This May it's a baby shower!  This gift bag would be perfect for either a bridal shower or a shower gift just for the Mom-To-Be...especially because all the gifts are usually  for baby!  If you'd like the 'Shower Heading' file, click over to my blog to grab it free!"  See more at Cindy's blog:  The Creative Pointe

Tina changed up a file to create this lovely layout.  She says:  "It’s Spring layout was created with The Creative Pointe’s Mom Flowers cut file, I eliminated the letters that spelled 'Mom' and cut out letters to spell out 'Spring' on the flowers. Spring is our favorite time of the year. I went with a grid style layout and the cut file is a real fun file to use this time of the year."  See more at Tina's blog:  Tina's Scrap Corner
