NEW Spring Things CUT FILES with Altered Project by Karen Hanson

There are some fabulous new SPRING THINGS Cut files
released today in the Silhouette Store and the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop
We've included links to both types of files below! Then keep scrolling to 
see the wonderful project by Karen Hanson.

Hi everyone! It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios, and today I get to share a project that was a little bit out of my comfort zone!
Before Christmas, Doodlebug announced some amazing partnerships that allowed them to create cut files that coordinate with their new collections. Now at the time, I was excited but jealous because my cutting machine was so old that using cut files just wasn't an option. But then along came Christmas, and with it, a new machine (perhaps my not so subtle hints paid off), and with it came a chance to try all sorts of things... both-hoops
...like creating some fun wall art for my daughter's room! All of the shapes you see in these altered embroidery hoops were created with Doodlebug Spring Things cut files (except for the hearts which were a basic shape that I simply created and cut). sun Everything from this adorable sun peeking out from behind a cloud... bird 
 ...to this adorable bird on a branch... frog 
...to the fantastical (is that a word?) frog on a lily pad... img_1099
...to a perfect "Sunshine" title cut... ladybug
...and my absolute favorite ladybug... ...these cut files will have you running your machine full tilt! The details are amazing in each file, and they are a really easy to layer and put together! Best of all, Doodlebug has the perfect textured cardstock and new matte Sprinkles (I love, love, love these) to make your cuts coordinate with all the great elements in the Spring Things collection. small-hoop
So, get out those machines and start cutting - whether it's for a project or style you are used to working in or something completely new, you will want to cut these cuties over and over again! Anyone need some wall art?!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Karen
