What's Brewin? with Lisa

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper with you today.  Here we are on October's doorstep; it's time to start thinking holidays, and that makes me happy. I know with the holidays quickly approaching it's time to keep things simple. That's what I did with this week's SVG Attic post, simple. This card is so silly and fun, the hardest part of creating this card was typing the background paper, deciding on papers, and colors. It's a great way to use up last years Halloween stash, too. 

This is a Halloween card featuring a cauldron on witches legs.

To create the background (Kraft), I typed Shakespeare's Song of the Witches from MacBeth using my old electric typewriter. I've been using my typewriter a lot lately for sentiments and my planner.

All the patterned paper is from my stash, American Crafts -Spooky 6 x 6 paper pad, and I added color using Distress Inks in Black Soot, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet, and Carved Pumpkin. 
TIP: Makeup sponges are fantastic for applying distress inks. Next time you're at your local big box store pick up a cheap bag and give it a try. 

You can join me on my blog, The Relativity of Paper, for all the details and step-by-step tutorial.

As always, thanks for joining us!

Fall Harvest Basket

There are lots of things to love about fall but one of my favorite is picking apples.
Tracy here from the Idea Closet.
Its been a long time since I walked around my grandpa's orchard and helped fill baskets with beautiful colored apples but every fall I am reminded of those days!

Today's project for SVG Attic is this beautiful fall harvest basket full of bright apples!

The file is from the Fall Harvest Favor Boxes.

I loved creating this basket.  It went together very quickly.  It is perfect for displaying or fill the apples with a little treat and share  with a friend.

To create the basket I used some wood printed pattern paper from doodle bug.  Tie some twine around it and add a couple of  fall leaves. 

Apples come in many varieties so I created mine in three different colors and inked them up just a little.
To give the leaves a little more interest I ran them through my sizzix and then inked the edges also.
To finish them, add a brown button.

Such a fun project.

Batty Basket

Hello, Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine and I'm pretty excited to share with you today.  Halloween is just around the corner and this would make great gift basket. You could put little lotions(potions) or candy or anything you fancy.

To make this batty basket I combined 2 files. The bat is the shaker bat from JGW Steampunk Hex.  The basket is the "ghost" from Spooky Treat Baskets just cut in black.
I popped the cheeks and eyes to give more dimension.

I also used the following:

Skeleton in a Cage ~ with Cyndy G

Happy Friday!  I am sharing some Halloween inspiration with you today.  I had a hard time trying to decide what to do for my project today so I went to the store and started browsing the Halloween section.  I saw a skeleton in a cage and thought "that is what I'm going to make!".  So here he is...

He turned out pretty cute.  I used the Skeleton out of JGW Goul Tide Cheer and 
the cage is from Welcome Spring.

I used the skeleton at it's import size and enlarged the cage as big as I could make it go.  I put some shredded paper in the bottom of the cage to lift the skeleton up a little and tied a string to his hang loop and laced it through the top of the cage.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you will share with us your Halloween decorations made with SVG Attic files!

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

Under the Sea

Hello SVG Attic fans! DT Sonja here with a very fun set that I got to make using two of our set files, the 'CG Under the Sea' and 'JGW Fathoms Deep'.

 This little beach shack is perfect for putting a treat inside! 

 I think this is my favorite card of the set! I love the depth and layers of it

 The submarine is from 'JGW Fathoms Deep'

 Under the belly of the sub is a great place to put a gift card or other goodies. 

 And to finish off my little set, here's a spinner/slider card

Pumpkin and Apple Basket Fall Decor with Beth

Good morning all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today!  Fall will be here in just a couple of days, so I created this fall decor to share with you.
For the apple basket, I used the file from JGW Fall Ensemble.  There is a great tutorial HERE to help with assembly.  Papers are from DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack.  I added a small bow of Totally Pumpkin Trendy Twine to the front.
The pumpkin is from the JGW Falling Leaves set.  Tutorial for that is HERE.  The leaf with vine is from the JGW Sam the Scarecrow set and it worked perfectly on the pumpkin!  Once again, all the papers are from DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack.  I wrapped some Totally Chocolate and Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twines around the pumpkin.

Here is a look at the sets that I used:

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Terrifying Tie with Lisa

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa, from The Relativity of Paper, sharing this Terrifying Tie with you.
I was thinking the other day, what do you do for the guy at the office for Halloween? While you're handing out all your ghoulish goodies, wouldn't it be fun to do something different for the guys? So, I sat down at my computer and started brainstorming and came up with this Terrifying Tie idea.
Just by changing up the paper I use on the Tie Treat Box from the SDS Love You Daddy Kit from SVG Attic.

I'm telling you this box is so easy to assemble. I used three - 12 x 12 pieces of cardstock, two green and one patterned paper. I picked the patterned paper because of the chevron design and the skeleton at the top and added a few stickers.

This box is big enough to hold cookies, a cupcake or mini cupcakes.
