Julie Mogford Designs Release

Hi there!

Hope you’re having a lovely day. One of my lovely designer friends has recently set up her online store with digital designs. Julie Mogford  has created some wonderful designs whether you like colouring, geometric designs or beautiful florals (which she’s so well known for!). It’s my pleasure to guest design using some of her illustrations which are available as SVG (cutting files) and PNG and even a PDF colouring page too.

If you visit  her blog– she’s got some gorgeous projects that’s she’s created using her designs. I’ve gone down the svg route; cutting these designs with my Silhouette Cameo. All of these would be perfect printed out and coloured and the beauty of digital files is that you can size them to your preferred dimensions too.


Enough of file talk! What have I actually created? The Gardenia files are a collection of flowers and leaves. I’ve simply cut them out from white cardstock, adhered them to some patterned paper, trimmed the outside out and then added some depth using Prismacolor pencils.

The background was using the Rose Window file. If you check out Julie’s blog you’ll see some of the ways she’s used the patterned file foiled and it looks really amazing. I imported it into my Silhouette software, traced the image and then cut it out. You’ll find it’s created this wonderful stencil-like layer (which actually would make a wonderful stencil!) and I’ve adhered straight to the base and added the floral layer.IMG_0232

You can see the detail better on this picture; just a beautiful image. If colouring is more your thing, print out the PNG files, resize them first if you want and then add some alcohol markers or pencils, or add sponged inks too. Once you get used to digi files, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried them before! So versatile.


The Gardenia file comes with a beautiful scripty font, that I made use of and I used the other flower so you can see this image too. The background was made with the negative shapes left from the cut out background in the previous card. I picked the whole lot of leftovers up with Orafol (which is a transfer tape used with vinyl and electronic cutters) and it’s useful for positioning multiple images. Add some 3D foam pads to the reverse and you have an unique texture for your base layer.

These designs have been so much fun to work with. You end up being more creative with digital files, and here’s a secret (they’re so inexpensive too!).

I want to wish Julie the very best with her new venture. She’s certainly not a new face in the crafting world but her design skills are well known and loved. If you’ve never tried digital images- let me encourage you to purchase one or two and have a play. If you want more ideas of what to do with them, just get in touch!

Have a lovely day, and don’t forget to visit Julie’s new store!

See you soon!

    Wish I was computer savvy enough to do digi’s but the times I’ve tried them I’ve messed them up royally. You, however, being the expert on multi mediums and crafting, can, clearly, do anything. Just look at these two glorious examples of your handiwork. Both are stunning, meticulously designed and perfectly executed. Once again, bowing to the master.
