Pictures of Files

I finally finished printing all the PDF files for my SVG files and have gotten them into sheet protectors. I even have them organized into a binder using an Excel Spread Sheet I created. I wanted to make hyperlinks to the pictures included in most files but found that was a little tedious and my attention span wasn't up to that. I then tried to copy/paste the picture into the row of the file and that too was not a good thing. So I decided not to worry with the pictures. BUT
I am a visual person. The pictures do more than inspire me, they help me chose paper and in some cases put the file together, so I wasn't satisfied with forgetting them.

I collected all the SVG photos into a folder (search/copy/paste works wonders). Went through and printed the group pictures so that I could put them with the PDF files. BUT, that wasn't enough. Many of the files have individual pictures showing each element or card that is part of the total file. The individual pictures are truly inspiring, so I couldn't leave them out of the binder. Long story short...Picture Collages- I took all the smaller individual photos and using the create software that came with my HP printer I took all the non group pictures and made colleges. Now all I have to do if figure out a way to ID the photo to the file...but that's for another day.
Here is an example of the collage page I created.

Welcome Spring Blog Hoppers! This is my first time participating in a "hop" and I am excited to see how all this works. As you probably can tell my blog is NEW and today is the first time it has been published for view.  I hope to fill it with many completed projects such as the bird house (shown below) that I made from the Welcome Spring Kit.

One of the many things I enjoy is making 3D paper crafts. There are several sites I visit often to purchase SVG files that can be cut on my Sizzix Eclips than assembled to make really rather incrediable things. My latest project is a bird house using "The Welcome Spring" SVG file from SVGATTIC.Com and paper from the Lemon Flower collection by DCWV.

I made the yellow bird using a file from Cannon Creative Park and the "Print to Cut" feature of the Eclips. The birdie turned out OK even though I lost some of the printed features of the bird and it took more time than what I expected.  I have been spoiled by files like the Welcome Spring file and hope to have many more files from SVGATTIC  in my arsenal for years to come.

You should have reached my blog from and will be heading to next.

 If you got here by mistake Welcome any way and I hope you will view all the next projects in the Hop. To start at the beginning go to
