SSSOOO Exciting) I am having a four day SVGcuts.com Giveaway Marathon (Thanks so much Leo and Mary) Each day we are giving away a $10 gift certificate to SVGcuts.com and all of the projects you will see today through Friday are all from SVGcuts.com files. My very dear friend MJ is here visiting and we are crafting (around a sick child) together, she is a guest designer today (and her project is AWESOME) and you will see her again Friday! Tomorrow is "Read Across America" Blog Hop with Joy and Friends, I can't wait to show y'all that project, Thursday is Joy's Life Design Team and Friday is the Grand Finale of our SVGcuts.com marathon Giveaway. To win one of the gift certificates you MUST be a Follower, since this is a follower celebration giveaway, and leave a comment and I will pick a winner each day! I hope everyone has a great time visiting and I wish everyone could win a Gift Certificate to SVGcuts.com, their files ROCK!!!!
Hi everybody, this is MJ.  I'm sooo happy that I have the chance to play with Tammy in her craft room again because I miss her dearly!  For the first day of this SVGCuts.com marathon,  I created an Easter paper favor cake. 
I used the cake box from SVGcuts.com's  "Betty's Boxes and Bags" collection. I bought my ribbons,  teal and chocolate texture papers as well as the Porcelain Chocolate Bunny Cake Topper from  Hobby Lobby.  I assembled the boxes using my Scorpal to score the fold lines and glued them together with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive.
  I embellished each cake slice with a paper rose (sooo easy to make) from SVGCuts.com's "Crush on You Boxes" file.  Even though this is a Valentine collection, the roses and boxes are so beautiful and can be used for all seasons (Spring, Easter, Weddings, etc).  The paper for the flowers came from Michaels (Recollection brand) and for a finishing touch I added some fabric leaves that I found at Hobby Lobby in the wedding department.  I adhered the flowers to boxes with hot glue.  
 
This is a really quick and easy project with very impressive and beautiful result.  

MJ's Party Favor Cake is phenomenal!! My card pales in comparison, I had grand plans but I ended up with a sick child and this card is the result!
I used SVGcuts.com's "Robins Return" Collection to create this card, I used the cloud frame, the branch and the nest with eggs to signify Spring (I am so ready for Spring) With a My Pink Stamper sentiment from the "Tweetie Hoo Puns" stamp set and a little bit of doodling finishes off this Spring card. 
Leave your comments and tomorrow we will announce the winner of todays $10 SVGcuts.com gift certificate!!
