SVG Attic Design Team Day

*** This is my 2nd post of the day:-)  Make sure you check out the Cardz TV Stamps design team post here ***

So today is my day to post a project using SVG Attic's wonderful svg files.  I am so excited to be a part of the SVG Attic design team and after working with Jessica's files I am even more excited. I was sooo happy when I saw the 3d Valentine boxes in the Heart Shaped Box set.  I decided to work with this set give the woven basket a try.  I love the mix of brown (which resembles chocolate:-) with red.  I also made the penguin card using the My Valentine set.  I referred to the pdf files for both of these projects that come with the file set when you purchase them.  Let me say that both of these projects went together quickly!!  I highly recommend using a wet glue with a bit of "forgiveness" when putting the basket together that way it gives you time to shape it as you are glueing it.

I really want to point this out to those of you who may be new to using svg files.  I know a lot of us have gotten Silhouette Cameos over the last few months and it may be your first time playing with svg files.  I work with SCAL 3 (sure cuts a lot).  The SVG Attic files come with a pdf file that give you help in putting together your projects.  I love the way Jessica makes her files easy to size - this is not the case with all svg files I have worked with.  Anyhow, onto the actual project but let me just say if you have any questions about working with svg files  feel free to leave me a comment on my blog.

I am entering my projects in the following challenges:
