Hostess Monday with Larelyn

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn, Senior Designer and Team 2 Coordinator.  For my Hostess Monday project I decided to do an SVG Paper Piecing.  I love Digital Delights digital stamps but sometimes it's fun to try one of the other great Digital Delights products.

I've made a card using the Bat Billy Paper Piecing.
The card is a 5 x 7.  I used my Silhouette to cut out all the pieces which I then inked and added some doodling here and there.  Some ribbon and gems and I have a cute Halloween card.

One thing I've learned when importing SVG files is that the files often import with the pieces already separated - easier to lay out on the virtual mat if you want to cut by color.  But then I wonder how all the pieces go together once they are cut.  So, a little trick I use is to copy the colored image from the store and then drop it in my open Silhouette design.  That way I have a picture reference right in front of me as I work.  When I save the file to my Silhouette library, I have the picture reference included with the saved file - easy peasy.
