Father’s Day Card SVG Freebie

In this post, I assure you, there is a nice easy Father’s Day Card for you to make. It is a very cute simple design, that is really easy to throw together last minute. That is my favorite kind of card SVG. Don’t get me wrong, the complicated ones are really cute when people make them, but they take waaaaay more effort and time than I am typically willing to invest.

Where have I been? I haven’t had much time to devote to my website for the past month or so, but not because I am not creating. Is it just me, or is it really difficult to not be creating? I have a really hard time putting projects down to get the daily chores done.

LASER LASER LASER

I haven’t been here because I have been in my hot garage drooling over my latest crafting toy. What is so exciting that I am sweating away in my garage in the summer in Texas?

MY NEW LASER CUTTER!

Yep. That is right. I bought a laser cutter! It is absolutely awesome and to top it off it is yellow, my favorite color. It is a 60Watt Chinese Laser purchased on Ebay, in case you wanted to know. I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to set it up when it came, but it wasn’t actually too bad.

Now, I am designing and cutting files on wood instead of paper! It is really really awesome. You may get tired of hearing this, but it is awesome. Yes, awesome.

Anyhoo, enough about my really awesome yellow laser, which needs a cute name.

Father’s Day

On to the point of this blog. Father’s Day is upon us again. I have a lot of cute cutting files already here for you to use or be inspired by. Take a look if you like.

Father’s Day SVG Freebie

However, I wanted something simpler and more generic this year. I am planning on sending one to my dad, and as you can see, my daughter’s already absconded with the other’s I made to give to their dad. My six-year-old added artwork and it turned out adorable too.


So, here is this year’s Father’s Day SVG Freebie. The download link is right below the image. The file has three parts. The main card, two optional shadow components, and an overlay. The overlay goes over “happy” and “day”, and creates a outline later for “fathers”. Let me know if you have any questions with it. If you use a standard 12×12 paper, you can make it approximately 4″x6″.

Coronavirus 2020 SVG File for COVID-19

Please enjoy this COVID-19 Coronavirus 2020 SVG file. I designed the virus icon from a diagram of the actual virus cell. (I’m not sure if cell is the technically correct word here, but it has been a while since I was in Biology class!)

Health is so important to the daily enjoyment of our lives. This Coronavirus outbreak has hit our world so very very hard. I sincerely hope that you and yours are doing well and are well provided for.

With mostly everyone at home, I thought it might be enjoyable to send out cards to those you love to let them know you are thinking of them. That was the inspiration for this card. It is intended as a little bit of humor in the midst of a scary time. 

Wishing you well. Here is the Coronavirus 2020 COVID-19 SVG FREEBIE!

Free Mom & Dad SVG Layered Files

So, the world has gone mad. I mean, doesn’t it feel almost surreal?

A world wide pandemic is something I thought I would only see in movies and board games. It really never occurred to me that it would actually be something to touch and even deeply affect my day to day life.

First, Here is to hoping that this finds you and yours safe and well supplied for all your needs. Our family is stocked for a couple weeks and ready to hunker down. My girls and I are not especially vulnerable to the virus, thankfully, but my husband does not have a strong immune system.

All anyone can do is be prepared and pray!

So, how are things in your neck of the woods? Lots of hand-washing here and we have enough toilet paper and soap too! đŸ˜‰

Hopefully, these couple SVG files will be a welcome diversion for you.

Layered Bee File Posted on Etsy

If you happened to catch my last post, you saw that I created an adorable layered bumble bee file. I used it as a baby shower gift, but I have had at least two people purchase it for a beekeeper they know.

Anyhow, I did polish up the file and get it posted on Etsy. You have to add your own text, but the rest is ready to cut!

Mom and Dad Layered Paper Art

Since we all have our family and their well-being on our minds, I thought a quick couple files for Mom and Dad would be perfect. Mother’s Day and Father’s day aren’t too far away. Get your cards done early.

While I envision these as layered card fronts, but you could definitely do more with them.

Here are some of my past posts on Father’s Day Cards and Files.

And some on Mother’s Day Cards and Files!

Free Bee SVG Download – Ha ‘Bee’ Birthday

I have a free Bee SVG for you tonight. Looking at this smiling bee is definitely cheering me up a bit. While I am glad to be back here posting a new file for everyone, it has been a rough week here my neighborhood.

Sadly, a little girl on her bike was hit and killed on her way to my daughter’s school this week. It is so tragic to lose such a young life. Please keep her family in your prayers. Her name was Irie.

It has been so heavy on my heart, especially having to share the news with my young daughters. They are so sweet though, and they were reassuring me that she was not dead, but alive with God in heaven. Such sweet little hearts children often have.

BEE Layered Paper Art

Anyhow, if you need a little cheering up after such a heavy topic, I have just the file for you tonight. I made this cute little bee for a gift a few weeks ago. It was my first attempt at a layered paper art picture.

Actually, this is how the layered file looked in Adobe Illustrator before I cut it out.

Not that I like to brag, but I do really love how it turned out. Hopefully the recipient did too!

If there is enough interest, I may put the layered file up for sale on my Etsy Shop, but for now I wanted to share the cute little bee. Before I can put it up for sale, I will need to write up instructions and figure out how to make the name layer more customizable.

UPDATE

I managed to get the layered file cleaned up and posted on Etsy!
Find it HERE.

The one thing I would change were I to make it again is to put a little more support behind the middle of the name layer as it was a wee bit wobbly.

Free BEE SVG and hand-lettered sentiment

Also, because I felt the little bee was lacking something, I hand-lettered a cute birthday message to go with it. Hopefully you enjoy it and are able to make something adorable with it.

I also have some other cute animal files if you want to take a look.

Happy Creating!

If you are curious, I separated the layers in my picture using cork scraps. I use cork for the backs of the coasters I have on my Etsy Shop, and always have lots of scraps left over. They turned out to be just perfect for the job. Here are some behind the scenes photos of this project.

Well, I sincerely hope you have a wonderful week. BEE happy, and enjoy life.

Valentine’s Day Floral Hearts

SVG Floral Hearts Freebies

Tomorrow is February – time for floral hearts! Can you believe that the first month of 2020 has already come and gone? Time always flies, and yet I am still always surprised by it.

In a new twist, I am actually ahead of the holidays in my crafting adventures. I have been working on more Valentine’s day files because they are just so much fun. Of course, there must be hearts and flowers and floral hearts. So, why not hearts with flowers made with a heart?

However, I need inspiration from you! Once I design and cut a file, I don’t always know the best ways to use it. If you use these files, show me please! They could make adorable cards by themselves, but there has got to be something else more creative to do with them. I just don’t know!

Well, I am not totally out of inspiration. They would look good as decals on things. I know, because I made some mock ups on some nifty little mock up freebies I found. Definitely not because I made cups with floral heart decals on them. That would be waaaay tooo ambitious. Maybe tomorrow. Probably not.

Now, I ought to go and make a good pinterest image. Did y’all know that this blogging thing is way too complicated? Can’t I just drop a free file here and call it a day. Apparently not. That wouldn’t be cool. Social media would never find me. I would be in the internet void forever. Yep. Technology is awesome. Technology is lame.

Well, did anyone catch my ‘y’all’? I am living in Texas after all now. However, it definitely does not roll right off the tongue yet and it makes me feel a bit like an impostor.

Anyhow, here is the file. Please enjoy. Hopefully you didn’t read all my text prelude, because I am sure it is lacking in wit and sophistication.

Make sure to check out my other Valentine’s Day files!

Fireworks 4th of July Free SVG Download

Fireworks for the Fourth of July!

What do you do on the fourth of July? Growing up we often went to a park with a blanket to watch the fireworks. Or, sometimes, went to see the Rockies play and watch the fireworks afterwards. More recently, we have done nothing. Yep. Nothing.

To be fair, we have three young children (ages 5, 4, and 0). Whenever I feel like we never do anything, I have to remind myself that the time will come where things will be easier, maybe?

If, unlike me, you throw a grand party, I have some great files for you. The one below is one I made last year. They would be great place cards for a more formal gathering, or labels for your buffet!

Fireworks SVG File Download

Additionally, I have a new 4th of July svg file for you to download.

Now, if I had one of the laser cutting machines that look so amazing, I would be making myself some cute little lanterns with this file. Can you blame me, doesn’t it look amazing?!

I mean, wouldn’t it look great on the side of a little lantern with an LED candle inside? I suppose I could make it into a paper lantern… 

What machine or machines do you use? I currently use the Silhouette Cameo 3. It has served me well and handles everything I have needed thus far.

However, I have heard that the Cricut Maker is amazing! Anyone have it? If I upgrade though, it may be in the fall when the new Silhouette 4 is set to come out. It is supposed to match or surpass the Maker and be cheaper!

As a side note, the singular of ‘fireworks’ does not roll off the tongue easily. I looked it up. It is ‘firework’ but was noted as ‘rarely used’ in the singular. Languages were my thing in college. And math.  I like words and I suppose that make me a nerd. I am okay with that.

Well, anyway, I have a beautiful fireworks SVG for you today.

Happy Summer and Happy Fourth of July!

Pumpkin Stack SVG – Fall Freebie!

Pumpkin Stack SVG – Fall Freebie!

It is fall! It is mid-October and a pumpkin stack svg is just what you need. Halloween is coming quickly. What does your October typically look like? For me, Halloween is a chance for the kids to play dress up and have fun going trick-or-treating. I don’t get too into the ghoulish and ghastly side of the holiday. I do, however, enjoy the fall leaves, crisp air and fun fall traditions. So, pumpkins are always fun!

So, I present you with a stack of pumpkins. A cute, free svg pumpkin stack file. I think they would make a great little picture on the wall for the season. Or perhaps a little card or a temporary window decal! Whatever you use them for, I hope you enjoy.

Meanwhile, Life Goes On

By the way, I don’t know if anyone has missed me or noticed that my posts have been a bit on the few and far between side. If you have, I will tell you that life has been more hectic than normal for us. After just completing a move into a new house here in Denver in the Spring, my husband unexpectedly changed jobs.

The new job is great, the new area is great, but the timing was not! In fact, as I am writing this I am one day past my due date with our third child. We just got some moving containers delivered to our driveway. And, the furniture is being literally moved out from under me! On the bright side, we should hopefully be getting all settled into a nice new house in San Antonio in less than a month. God willing, we will be settling in to a nice new life with a brand new baby girl.

In the meantime, however, my posts are going to stay very few and far between and I have put my Etsy shop on vacation mode. While I wanted to keep it open, the fact that I will have a brand new baby and that my supplies are already packed up meant that reality trumped my desire to keep it open.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy this cutting file. I haven’t (perhaps obviously) had time to test it, but this mock up makes it look really cute.


 

If you happen to make something adorable with any of my files, I would love to see it!

My First Day SVG Freebie File Download for Back to School Pictures

JPG - Color Example

My First Day SVG File Freebie – Just in time for back to school pictures!

Tomorrow is August. Yes, AUGUST! For many that means summer is almost gone and school is starting up. We just launched our first year of homeschooling with our oldest. It is Kindergarten time! So far, it has been a lot of fun. Still, it doesn’t seem like summer is over. Weather here has been very hot and then very stormy. This is strange weather for Colorado!

 

 

At any rate, Iam looking ahead to August. I love new school supplies. Did you know that the fat crayola markers make an excellent tool for hand-lettering? AND they don’t cost a fortune. Especially if you shop the school supply sales this coming month. The sale can be really good, so be sure to shop around. If you are like me, you may already have a good stockpile of supplies, but the sales are sooooo tempting, who can stay away?

 

The My First Day SVG freebie I am bringing you today is perfect for those first day of school pictures. I only went from 1st to 6th grade with the apples, because I can’t really imagine a junior high or high schooler cooperating for custom shirt school photos. However, if you have an exceptional child who will cooperate, the font is Segoe Print if you need to add other numbers or customize the text in any way.

If, like me, you would like a simplified project that mitigates the need for layering, I have you covered. Included with this download are the following welded apples with the numbers inside for a more silhouetted version. The key here is that you only need one layer of vinyl and should look adorable all the same!

 

 

So, will I do first day of Kindergarten photos? I want to, but that doesn’t mean I will. Life gets in the way. Hopefully, however, I will get on the ball with photos. We need some. Do you do professional photo shoots or just take your own? Either way, this “My First Day SVG” would be a great photo prop or t-shirt.

Free SVG Cutting File

Without further to do, here is the file. It includes each grade text and apples for you to swap in as needed. I think it would look great cut out in glitter heat transfer vinyl on a shirt. As you see above, it looks very cute on the shirt of this adorable girl I found searching for free stock photos. I wish you and your kids a happy August and hope they enjoy their first day of School!

Free SVG four leaf clover for St. Patrick’s Day!

UPDATED POST CLICK HERE!

Can you believe March is here? Well, here I have a free SVG file to remind you that St. Patrick’s Day is on its way. So, who likes four leaf clovers? Did you ever spend hours in a field trying to find one? I feel like I did as a kid, but I don’t remember ever finding one.

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? We didn’t do much for it growing up, except for wear some green to avoid being pinched! Occasionally we would go out for lunch or dinner to somewhere vaguely Irish. What are your traditions? Is it a Holiday you take note of or just skip over? I have never been a big drinker, so I imagine that those who enjoy that pastime may do more to celebrate than I do.

Free SVG Cutting File

At any rate, this is a really cute little four leaf clover cutting file. I think it would look great cut out in glitter heat transfer vinyl on a shirt. Maybe with a cute little saying of some sort underneath? Well, I hope you enjoy! And have a fabulous March!!

Here I present to you this St. Patrick’s Day SVG file freebie, the famed four leaf clover!
