Winter Penguin ATC - Swap

Hi Everyone! This is a winter penguin I made for a ATC with theme being winter wonderland. I have to say making my first ATC was sooooo very difficult. It was hard to fit something into the small 2.5"x3"5 size. Well, hope you like what I made. The penguin was made using Inkscape and cut with SCAL, the svgs for which you can download by clicking here. When you look at the files, the tummy of the penguin is deliberately cut out, so the background shows through. A variation can be to cut a white circle and use as the tummy layer. The SVG file "winter penguin copy.svg" has all the layers and how they are assembled, rest of the svg files are the individual layers to import into SCAL to cut. The background is a some cut from some art my daughter made. Below is an image of the SVG in Inkscape and the end result.

Snowman Round Tag - Swap

Hi Everyone! A round shaped tag I made for a recent christmas swap, the theme was snowman. Snowman was made using Inkscape and some handmade sheets I purchased in India, the svg files for which are available for download by clicking here. File named "snowman round orig.svg" shows all the layers and how they are assembled. The tag was sized 4.5". The the files are named "snowman round orig - copy - 4_5.svg", which means when you import this file into SCAL to cut as per the original dimensions, set the height in SCAL to 4.5", whatever is shown in the filename. Here is an image of the layered SVG and a photo of the end result. Hope you like it. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Special creations by my Daughter

This time the creations in the post aren't something I made. Instead these were made by my daughter who is 4 yrs old. Just thought to share because she created something so wonderful all by herself. You won't believe it, but she colored these on her little brother's baby wipes.
