Welcome to the Cutie Patootie Blog Hop!!!!

Hello everyone!  Hope that you guys are having a fabulous weekend so far!  Thanks for taking time on your precious weekend to join us in this blog hop!  I am excited to be a part of this with 11 amazingly talented woman (Thank you Yolie for inviting me to be a part of it :) ), to share the love for CUTE SVGs, and I can't wait to share my little project with you all!

If you happened to just come by my blog, you are actually coming to my first ever blog hop hosted by Just Yolie, Just Create.  (Thanks Yolie for hosting!)  So go to Yolie's blog, and start your fun over there and I'll see you again in a bit!  If you are coming from Tammy's blog (OBX Stamping and Crafting), then you've got it correct... keep on hoppin'!

Of course for my project, being on the SVGCuts design team, I'm going to share how CUTE SVGCuts collections are!  I've created this CUTE bag, perfect to put in a little something to show your friend that you care!  This size is perfect to put in some candies, or tea bags, or even some flower seeds if your girlfriend is a garden lover :)

The pretty green paper is from Cosmo Cricket - Garden Variety collection.

Ohhhh, the bee!!!  Too cute!  I added a jewelry wire behing the bee to make it look like it's buzzing! 

Love this cute sentiment!

Cute 3D flowers embellished with buttons and twine!

The cute embossed fence attached to the bag with foam tape - makes it look dimensional!

Here are the collections, the file names and the sizes that I used in case anyone would like to make this :) (All cuts are proportional in dimension, unless I state otherwise!)

shopping_bag_short.svg   11.4" wide

Easter Morning Egg Hunt SVG Collection

grass2.svg   5.5" wide (this welded to the top of the short_bag.svg above)


sign_base.svg   1.7" wide by 3.7" high

3D Flowers SVG Kit Part II (just used the petals layers)

windflower.svg   3.95" wide

gerber daisy.svg   3.9" wide

bachelor's button   3.9" wide

Chamomile Friendship Cards SVG Kit   1.00" wide
bee.mid.svg 0.70" wide   0.70" wide
gate.svg   3.75" wide

scalloped_base.svg   2.3" wide

The stamp is Flower Garden Sentiments from Papertrey ink (they have the most beautiful stamps ever!), the embossing for the fence is Sizzix/Tim Holtz Woodgrain folder and the twine is from The Twinery.

Now, I hope that all of you have SCAL2...  This is the software you need to cut all the CUTE CUTE CUTE stuff shown in this blog hop.  If you don't, then Pumpkin Cart Crafts has the best deal ever for SCAL2.  Use the coupon code "SCAL2" to get $20 off your $74.95 SCAL2 purchase (and get a $10 SVGCuts gift card)!  Better yet, this SCAL2/SVGCuts $100 Gift Card is even more amazing of a deal - it's only $124.99! So go there right now, and get this so you can join in the fun!

To celebrate my first blog hop, I'm giving away a SVGCuts Collection of your choice to 2 lucky people!!! 

1) You MUST be my follower (so go ahead and click on that stalker button to the right) 
2) You MUST "like" SVGCuts on Facebook , and go to the SVGCuts store, and pick out a collection that you'd love to have!  Then,
2) leave me your love here, and tell me which collection you would like if you win!

ONE MORE GIVEAWAY added!!!  Leo and Mary from Pumpkin Cart Crafts (PPC)  (and owners of SVGCuts) has generously donated one $20 PPC Gift Card to one lucky winner! (Did you know that there's a facebook page for PPC, too? If you haven't joined, make sure that you "like" here!) 

Oh, by the way, have you seen the new free SVGCuts Collection of the week  - Spring Birdhouses SVG Kit (with purchase of $9.98 or more)?  It's super SUPER cute and includes a milk carton style box!   It's a must have, for sure!!!!
