Let’s Get Digi (in a template kind of way)

Hello!  🙂

Today the My Favorite Things design team is sharing samples using  four new digi-templates and a new digi-paper pack (now available)! 

The template files come in several different formats:

  • PDF: traditional print & cut version
  • SVG: for use with the Cricut Expression and Make The Cut or Sure Cuts a Lot software
  • Ai & DXF: for use with Wishblade, Pazzles, and KNK machines
  • GSD: for use with the Silhouette

How fabulous would it be to have a fancy machine cut all the pieces in a jiffy?  I wouldn’t know.  I used my paper cutter and scissors.  But I’m feeling the pressure….  😉

It’s All About the Candy 

I’ve used MFT’s Tiny Town Halloween along with the Pumpkin Box template.   I ***love*** the pumpkin box.  

I printed the template onto the back side of a woodgrain patterned paper, constructed my pumpkin and sponged all the edges and score lines, quite heavily, with Ranger’s Walnut Stain Distress ink. 

I wrapped one long thin strip of paper around a bamboo skewer to get the curly piece.   After curling, I bent the piece just a bit in the middle(ish) and tucked it beneath my jute string before tying.

I’m really happy with how this turned out.  (Kind of simple, but kind of not.)   🙂  

I created a matching card using the same papers, scoring and inking.   A small pop dot beneath the pumpkin costume added just a bit of dimension. 

And a little stamp and sentiment along with some sponging provided a quick finish to the inside.

I hope you’ll check out what the design team has done with these new products!  You can find direct links to the samples HERE after 11 a.m. EST. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
