Avocado Arts projects

Hello, friends:}


This is my FIRST official post as a Pit Crew member for Avocado Arts! I am so excited to be joining this amazing and talented team! Be sure to stop by the AA blog for more information and LOTS more inspiration!


Avocado Arts has a brand new stamp set for January called Sweet Treat Sweetie! So sweet:) I wanted to make a couple of projects using these images. For this card, I used some My Mind's Eye papers with my AA cupcake, candle, and sentiment stamps. I loooooooove how masculine it is! I struggle with masculine cards--and this was PERFECT
I also created some "save the date" jar magnets/tags. I loooooooooove AA's digital die cut files! If you have a Cricut (Silhouette, KNK Zing, etc.)--this is a file you will def. want to buy!!! I die cut the jars on white paper and turquoise vellum. I stamped my jar, printed the information, and added the vellum on top. I also stamped and embossed the little heart from this stamp set on the vellum. Tie a bow and you're done! ***Imagine all that fussy cutting if I had stamped the jar and then cut them out--WOW! This digital die cut file saved me TONS of time!!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOVE this die cut file!!!
Here is a pic of the vellum and white jar with the finished project (I just realized that I should have them going L-R instead of R-L! LOL!)
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the AA blog for more details and inspiration. And don't forget to check out my other teammates' blogs! You are going to love what they share today!!!! 


And if you have time--check out Avocado Arts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Flickr. Let me know if you get this kit--I cannot wait to see what you create with it:}


Thanks so much for stopping by! Many blessings!

Can you give details on how you used the cricut? I'm guessing with the craft room? I haven't even dived into that yet but if I can use AA digital files with my cricut I would be so excited!

Love both these projects, Sav! The card is great for a masculine birthday -- although it's hard to imagine you _struggling_ with any paper project! ;) And the die-cut "save the date" jar is awesome. Congrats again on joining the pit crew!
