That means we had to get creative with our free April 2018 SVG design downloads. Do you remember the dancing hot dog meme that was all the rage for about 4 weeks last year on Snapchat? We thought it would be fun to add that as a layered image to scrapbook layouts, so Aaron made (1) meme icon and (2) graduation cards.

  9. Sweet Sugarbelle Project: Cactus Cookie Cutters Set

    cactus cookie cutter set components and boxAt CraftDirect, we've wanted to do a Sweet Sugarbelle cookie-cutter project for quite some time, so I took the opportunity this Christmas break. I visited my nieces (ages 13 and 9) and nephew (age 4) in Georgia where it was bitter cold and gray, the type of weather that is perfect for cookie baking. Everyone was happy to participate, and we all had fun. The great thing about Sweet Sugarbelle cookie cutters is their products make it easy to create intricate sugar cookie designs using stencils and other helpful accessories. Getting Started Because I'm from Arizona, I thought the kids would like to get a little taste of the desert, so I selected the Cactus Cookie Cutter Set. It includes two cookie cutters, two templates, and two instruction cards. In addition to that, we used Disposable Piping Bags and a few household utensils, like butter knives and spatulas. Since we've been selling Sweet Sugarbelle, I've wondered what the templates look like. It turns out they are made of thin, clear plastic. You punch out the shapes to get the positive and the negative stencil: Continue reading →
