Store update

Hiyah!

This was an update that went up on my facebook page a few days ago but thought I’d share it here too as I’m still getting emails regarding the ornament:

Hey Guys! One of the reasons that the site went belly-up was everyone bombarding the site for the Filigree Ornament all at the same time.
I’ve decided to move the freebie files back over to the blog for you to download directly to your computer. I liked having all of the files in the same place but I want to prevent something like this happening again.
I will be gradually moving them all over but so far, the Christmas freebies have been moved, so if you’re wondering where they’ve gone you can find them here: http://www.birdscards.com/free-svg-cut-files/christmas-svgs/

In other news, I am busy working away designing my new kit, the store issues etc set me back unfortunately but I am working as fast as I can to bring you new designs :)

A Christmas Makeover

Hello Everyone!

Today I’ve taken the Star shaped Box from the You’re a Star SVG collection and given it a Christmas makeover using a couple of elements from the White Christmas SVG collection.

This not only makes a pretty gift box but can also be kept and used as a trinket box long after Christmas is over.

These are the Cut Files I used:

From the You’re a Star SVG collection

I cut the Star Box Base, Lid and Layer 1 from Red Cardstock to create the Box.

I then cut this element from Layer 2 from some Tartan patterned paper.

I cut this element from the Poinsettia Gift Tag Layer 1 three times from more Red Cardstock.

And I cut this element from the Robin Gift Tag Layer 1 three times from Green Cardstock.

 

 

 

 

These are the Materials I used:

  • Red and Green Cardstock
  • Tartan Patterned Paper
  • Distress Ink
  • Wet and Silicone Glue
  • Fibres, Artificial Berries & Stamen
  • Chunky Glitter

If you would like to watch along as I make this project, here’s a video showing the process:

Now, no makeover would be complete without a before and after picture would it?

I hope this encourages you to think about using the Cut Files in your stash in more than one way and use them for different occasions :)

Store Issues overnight

Good Morning!

Due to us all being in different time zones, I woke up to several messages regarding issues with the store that were happening overnight. This is now being investigated.

If you need to access any of your purchased collections and are unable to download them, please email me: bird@birdscards.com and I will send your files to you manually(I am unable to do this for freebies).

I apologise for the inconvenience and although I can’t say at this time when things will be back to normal as I am a one woman team, I aim to rectify the problem as soon as I possibly can.

I will, of course, update you with any news as soon I have it.

-UPDATE-

The store has been taken offline while these issues are resolved, to keep an eye out for the latest updates please check my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/birds.cards
