Thursday Product review: SVGs

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Thursday's Product Review! Today we will be sharing some ins and outs of SVG's!

What are SVG you ask?
According to Wikipedia, the definition of a SVG file is: Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a family of specifications of an XML-based file format for describing two-dimensional vector graphics, both static and dynamic (i.e. interactive or animated).
To me that is blah,blah,blah! LOL!!!  So lets go a bit simpler for us scrapbookers and not a techy.

SVG- according to Sandy...
a cut file that uses little vectors to cut out an image. Think of it as "connect the dots". That is exactly what your machine is doing. 

So by connecting the dots, your Cricut Explore and Silhouette will make a cute die cut image.   You do need a software program to use a svg and there has to be a connection from your computer to your cutting machine.

So there you have the basic info. Now our SBC DT Sher made up this easy SVG file for us to use to make this awesome card design...

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
