Make-the-Cut Blog Hop Day 30

Thanks to all of you who are visiting my blog today from Christy at Every Day Little Things. If you are just stopping by for a visit from Karel's blog, One by One the Flamingos are Stealing my Sanity, Christy is hosting a Make-the-Cut Blog Hop for the whole month of May. Each day she will link up to a Make-the-Cut user and you can bet on some pretty awesome projects!

Those of us participating in this hop want to share our love of an amazing cutting software with you. If you haven't heard of Make-the-Cut, or you are on the fence about purchasing MTC, you should definitely check out all the wonderful crafters and their amazing projects. Just visit Christy at Every Day Little Things to get the complete lineup.
I wanted to share a project I just completed for our end of school 'Teacher Appreciation' gift. My daughter found the mug and so I thought this bouquet of flowers would be perfect with the kids faces in the centers. I created my own svg files and cut them using my MTC software. It turned out a little more 'full' than I thought but I still like it.

Cute right?? And so easy using Make-the-Cut. If you already own MTC you can download the free flower frames I used by clicking the following link: FLOWER FRAMES
For the occasional free svg/mtc files follow my blog. There are also lots of other designers out there who share free files to cut with the MTC software, making it even more fabulous!!
