New Christmas SVG Files

Merry Christmas crafters!  Today I’m sharing with you some of my latest Christmas SVG files, which you can use to add to your holiday crafts and projects.  I still can’t believe we’re already into December!  I’ve been working on some new Christmas decorating ideas around the house this year, and have been inspired by all the beautiful tiered trays and Dollar Tree ideas I’ve seen online.  I’ll post some of the Christmas DIYs I’ve been working on soon.

Some ideas for using my Christmas SVG files are Christmas cards, signs, heat transfer logos, mugs, and gift tags.  These SVG files can be cut out with machines like the Cricut Explore, Cricut Maker, and the Silhouette Cameo.  Or, you can simply print these graphics with your printer at home, and add them to a cute a frame.  There are just so many cute and festive ideas out there!  To view the graphics above simply follow these links:

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

Baby It’s cold Outside

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas 

When creating your craft projects you don’t have to keep my files as is.  They can be re-worked in your program to fit your desired shape.  For example, I used my Baby It’s Cold Outside coffee cup graphic to create this cute sign.  But, instead of keeping it as it, I un-grouped it in my Cricut program, and placed the phrase and snowflakes outside of my cup.

I purchased a sign from the Dollar Tree, and painted it with white paint.  I then added gray lines to make it look like beadboard, and more gray around the edges and front of the sign to give it a rustic, farmhouse look.

My cup was cut out of 3 pieces of cardboard, which I got from cereal boxes, and the lid and sleeve were cut out 3 times each as well, just to give my sign a little dimension.  Each piece was glued together with mod podge, then painted brown and red.  I did, however, mod podge some fun Christmas paper onto my sleeve for extra color.  Little white highlights were painted around the edges of my cup with a tiny paintbrush and white paint.  To finish off the cup, I added a little red bow, a wooden snowflake (which I got from the dollar store), and some Christmas greenery.

My Cricut machine was also used to cut out the text of my Christmas SVG file in vinyl, to use as a stencil.  I painted the text blue, and again, used my fine tip brush and white paint to add some highlights to the letters.  I then cut the snowflakes out of silver, glittery vinyl, and added them around my sign.

So, now you see how you can easily re-work my SVG files to create your own desired look and unique project!

Before I go, I’d like to note that all of my Christmas SVG files are currently on sale, so head on over to my SHOP to check them out, along with all the other fun designs I have to offer!  You can also follow me of Facebook for more updates, and to see what my Crafty Canada Studio customers are also creating with my files.

Hello Fall Sign

I recently added a new Hello Fall SVG to my Crafty Canada Studio shop.  It includes fun fonts, and a cute pumpkin silhouette.  I decided to make a little sign using this design for my counter.  I paired it with a quick sock gnome that I made, as well as some stacked books I did using my Pumpkin Spice Season SVG as a stamp.

For my sign, I used a piece of MDF wood measuring approximately 9″ high by 5″ wide, and painted it Terrace White from C I L paints.  I then distressed the edges with distress ink to give it a more rustic, farmhouse look.

I cut my Hello Fall SVG out in vinyl using my Cricut Maker at approximately 7″ high by 4″ wide.  (This design works great if you can do it around this size or bigger because of the narrow curls on the pumpkin.  It may not cut as well in smaller designs.)  I weeded my image, and used some clear shelf liner that I found at the Dollar Tree as my transfer tape.  This is perfect because it’s transparent, and cheap!  You may need to use something to pull parts of the design away from your transfer tape and onto your board, as the vinyl doesn’t always pull away that easily.  I personally use a sewing pin.  I do have the Cricut pick, but actually prefer to use my pin.

Once my vinyl stencil was on my board, I used a cheap foam dabber that I bought at another dollar store, and dabbed black paint all over my design.  I let it dry and did it a second time to give it good coverage.  Once that was dry I carefully pulled my vinyl off of my board.  For some reason when I did this it pulled away a bunch of my white paint.  I’m thinking I didn’t let it dry long enough before putting on my stencil.  I actually didn’t mind how it looked, because it gave it even more of a rustic look!

To finish off my sign, I added a piece of orange ribbon to the top.  And there you have it, a cute fall sign!

Hocus Pocus Cauldron SVG

Create fun Halloween die cuts and decorations with this Hocus Pocus cauldron SVG.  Cut it out using the Cricut or Silhouette Cameo machine, or use the Print and Cut feature to create quick and easy die cuts.

Each image has a white border going around it, which can be deleted if you don’t wish to use it.  The cauldron also comes on its own without the text.  Add it to Halloween treat bags, create custom Halloween t-shirts, or die cuts for scrapbooking and handmade cards.  It would also be cute made into a sign to hang on your front door for trick-or-treaters!

Check out my Halloween section for other fun SVG files, or search for Hocus Pocus Cauldron at my Crafty Canada Studio shop.
