MTC/SVG Monday and A Mini Series

Happy Monday everyone! Today is a little exciting for me, you may have noticed a second design team logo over there on the right. That's right I was accepted onto the MTC/SVG Monday design team for The Scrapoholic. Every other Monday Jill, The Scrapoholic, will be posting a free file in MTC and SVG formats for you to create a project with and link it up for a chance to win free files. Hop on over to her blog and grab this weeks freebie and get to work! The theme this week is sun and clouds, here is my project:
 I created a simple A2 card for any occasion. The sun and clouds were cut at 4.5" wide. I popped the bottom three clouds up from the background using foam squares, popped the background up off the card, and added some Trendy Twine. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Now I have the start of a mini series of 3x3 cards. I have been really loving the simple clean looks of projects I've been seeing recently. I made these little note cards as some blog candy, but loved them so much I had to share them with all of you. So, I'll be posting two cards a day until Thursday. As you will notice each of them features the stamps from My Thoughts Exactly and I will feature one card from each of the sets available everyday! Here are the very first two:
 The first cards features the Birds and the Bees set along with a Lettering Delights file from the Cut Its collection (owl) and an SVG Attic file from the Birds and Bees set (branch). In this card you can see how cool it looks to ink the main word of the stamps in a different color. Doesn't it just make the sentiment pop?
The second card features the Under the Sea set along with an SVG from the Something Fishy collection at Lettering Delights. Here I used the same idea of inking one word in a different color, except this time the word was just part of the phrase not the main word. I think it came out really cool, what do you think?

Be sure to stop back tomorrow I have a cool inking technique that is super easy to do with the mix and match feature of the My Thoughts Exactly stamps. If you haven't already be sure to stop by and check out the stamps, then hop over and grab the free files form The Scrapoholic and enter the challenge.

Happy crafting,


  1. Congrats on your DT post and such a sweet cloudy scene!

  2. These are so cute...but what's the difference between a SCAL file and a MTC file?

  3. SCAL files are for the program Sure Cuts A Lot. MTC is for Make The Cut. They are just different formats that only the specific program can open.
