Candy Cane House

What a busy Christmas season it has been this year.  We had a Spy/Detective themed birthday party for my youngest, did some major organizing around the house, lots of volunteering at school, holiday baking and crafting, not to mention several family get-togethers.  All good stuff, but wow I'm exhausted!  My oldest headed back home this afternoon (with her boyfriend and three puppies in a car for a 15 hour ride - yikes!) and things are finally starting to settle down again.  Time to catch up on some blog posts!

I've been having so much fun with SVG Cuts files and, although I love my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software, I recently purchased Sure Cuts Alot to use specifically with svg files.  I like to cut my score lines using a lower blade setting so that the cuts blend better in the folds, but SSDE doesn't make it easy since the layering doesn't hold when you import the files.  I end up having to break up all the design parts, pick out the score lines and change their color so that when I send the file to my Cameo I can cut by color and control the cut settings that way.  But with SCAL I can just drop the designs into the software and start cutting by layers right away, super easy and fast!

And super easy and fast was key these last few weeks!  Here's a quick and easy and fun little SVG Cuts Candy Cane House that I made for my daughter:

Isn't it "sweet"?!!!  (sorry, I couldn't resist, lol!)

I hope you all had a great holiday season and were able to spend some time with family and friends.  And I hope you were busy with some crafty projects too!

Thanks for visiting!
