Fun With Photo Props!

We're back with a new season of fun and inspiration at Creative Cutting Challenge.  If you love using SVG files with your electronic cutter, this challenge blog is for you.  Not sure what an SVG file is and don't want to miss out?  Check out this post and then this post from Cindy at The Creative Pointe.  She does a great job explaining what SVG files are and how they can accentuate your creativity.  Even if you don't use SVGs yet, there are plenty of creative ideas from our very talented Design Team, so please check it out!

Our theme this fortnight is "Anything Goes"...we're starting out easy, so there's no excuse not to play along!

The Creative Pointe's Photo Props SVG set has so many possibilities.

The most obvious use is to cut the props exactly as Cindy has scaled them for true photo props (these were SO MUCH FUN at our wedding!!).

For my design team project, I wanted to give you even more inspiration for this fabulous set...and there was a bit of selfish-ness involved.  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.  I used foam tape behind the SVG cut outs to give them a bit more prevalence.

Trendy times two...mustache + chevron patterned paper!

Here kitty, kitty...this one's purrrfect for feminine birthday, congratulations, friendship, etc.  Graduated dots of Perfect Pearls accent the cat's eye glasses.

I have so many more ideas for this SVG set, so I'm sure I'll be featuring it again.
Don't forget to join the challenge...you can win free stuff!  J
