Designer Basket & Apples Template

Hi everyone!  The time is FINALLY here!  It's time for the August MFT release!  All the new products are available RIGHT NOW, right HERE. :)

Tonight, we are having our traditional Blog Hop & Shop.  If you have just happened upon the hop, you'll want to start at the beginning on Kim's Blog, so you don't miss anything. 

I am SO super excited to be able to share the new template that I designed: Designer Basket & Apples.  This will make the perfect gift to go with all the fabulous cards you'll make with Who's That Harvest Girl, or just as a fun gift all by itself.  With school starting soon, these apples would make the PERFECT gift for your children, and the new teachers.

OK, let's get to it!  Here is the complete template, assembled to create a Designer Basket, and 4 treat-filled apples.


I added a brown "stake" made from card stock to mount my An Apple a Day sentiment, which came from the Who's That Harvest Girl stamp set.  It is a strip of card stock, folded in half and then adhered to the inside base of the basket.  I topped it off with a Perfect Plaid ribbon bow. 



I love the way the corners come together on this basket.  It is a fun, kite-shaped corner.  I enjoyed adorning each corner with a button from the Earth Girl Collection.  You can also catch a glimpse of the side of the Designer Basket.  To create a wooden plank look, I simply scored along each side, in 1/2" increments from score line to score line.  It's super easy to do with a ScorPal. 


This template comes in MANY formats, all for the low price of $3.95!

PDF: traditional print & cut version. 


SVG: for use with the Cricut Expression and Make The Cut (link over in my side-bar) or Sure Cuts a Lot software

Ai & DXF: for use with Wishblade, Pazzles, and KNK machines

GSD: for use with the Silhouette

Also included with this template is a PDF (print & cut) with mini-sized "apples" perfect for cherry tomatoes. Try different colors of card stock to create a variety of fruit.  With your Cricut, you can size the basket and apples to any size you wish for the ultimate versatility.  I'll show you my cherry tomato project soon, along with some more Make the Cut pointers for you!  

So, what do you think?  Are you feeling fruity?  LOL

Ready to hop along?  You have plenty more stops to make before you reach the end! Next up is my super-sweet friend, Joanne.  She ALWAYS has something jaw-dropping to look at, so enjoy the eye candy! 

See you soon!
