SVG Attic design team - February challenge "use a heart"

So, I get to let the cat out of the bag today (insert big grin here:-) I have been selected to join the SVG Attic design team!!  I am so excited to work with Jessica and the rest of these talented ladies.  I have followed a few of these ladies' blogs for awhile now.  I am also enjoying working with my Silhouette Cameo and Scal 3.  For my project I challenged myself to work with the "print and cut" feature with the cameo.  I must confess I do not have it perfected yet using Scal 3 but it is getting better each time.  In fact, when I was really having issues in the beginning stages, the great people over at Craftedge (makers of Scal) worked with me and tweaked their software to make it work better.  Don't you love it when you receive great customer service!! 

I used the heart tree from SVG Attic's "Give a Hoot" collection which you can find here.  I printed out the trunks of my trees as well as my sentiment.  I then cut the hearts for the trees.  I popped up the center heart with some foam tape and added a red heart brad to it.  I used another heart on the inside of the card to keep the theme going there too.

Make sure you head over to SVG Attic blog to meet the rest of the design team and get some more inspiration for the February challenge.  I encourage you to join us in this challenge - after all, what better month to make a project using a heart??  You can find out all the "specifics" over at the blog!!

Stop back in on Friday and see how I used a file from this new SVG Attic Heart Shaped Box set to make a cute Valentine's gift!!
