The weekend was bitterly cold! I went shopping just across the border in Newry. There are two shopping centres just a few minutes walk away from each other, the Quays and Buttercrane, and in those few minutes I thought my face would crack with the cold – it felt as though it was frozen solid!
Radio Nova dedicated the weekend to playing romantic records. As the drive to Newry was a good hour and a half each way, I heard a bunch of them and thought there were a few dubious choices in the mix particularly Paul Young’s ‘Every time you go away you take away a piece of meat with you’. Well, that’s as romantic as a bluebottle on the bum. I mean, what’s she doing? Nicking his pork chops? Leg of lamb? Soon put a stop to that, if I was him.
So, changing tack completely and happily, I’m giving you a free paper cutting file – just in time for St Valentine’s Day. It’s not totally soppy. I think it says plenty in a lovely way. You can download the SVG here:
Together We Are Magic
You’ll need a cutting machine, obviously, but it cuts well and isn’t too intricate or fiddly to weed. I hope you like it and remember, somebody, somewhere, loves you. Have a happy Valentine’s day.
A gatefold card with envelope for the most romantic and soppy of Valentines! Set Your Loved One’s Heart A-Flutter with this beautiful card. It features a delicate heart lattice edged with decorative scallops It has pretty cut-outs and inset butterflies whose wings can be folded up to give the card further dimension. The cut-out letters on the front panels spell out ‘MY’ and the opened card reveals the cut-out word ‘LOVE’.
Included is a butterfly and mat template for you to cut as many as you wish to embellish your card. The card has a 5mm fold either side to allow thicker embellishments to be accommodated.This card would be a delight for any romantic to receive.
This template is compatible with the Craft-Robo, Wishblade, Silhouette, Cameo and any other cutting software that uses GSD or SVG files. You will need one of these cutting machines to make this card.
Please note that you are purchasing a template file for a suitable (see above) cutting machine and not the actual card. Price: 3.50 euro
Payment via Pay Pal. Your file will be sent to you via email usually within 24 hours of payment having been received.
You can make and sell cards using the template but the copyright remains my property. You may not sell or share the file or distribute via any electronic media.
No sooner do we shut the door on one occasion when we start preparing for the next one! Maybe we just need nice things to look forward to.
I am making something special for Mr Tree and thought I’d show you the image I’ve made as part of his card:
It’s 300 dpi so it will print out cleanly. It looks lovely in other colours as well so I converted it into a brush (the original graphic was made in Illustrator then brought into Photoshop to turn into a brush).
The brush is for sale at 1.50 euro. Payment is through Pay Pal, which will convert to your currency. The file will be sent to you within 24 hours of payment being received. Please note that you will need Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to be able to use this brush.
If you would like the PS Pattern of this stamp, also costing 1.50 euro, let me know and I’ll make it available.
Thank you for looking
May love pop up everywhere! This is a little pop up that I made for my other half on Valentine’s Day. The photo shows you how it’s to be folded – there aren’t many folds, they’re not fiddly and the end result looks gorgeous, even if I do say so myself.
This file is available for purchase on my Etsy site: Paper Pictures
