My project today is using the Deep Lid Boxes kit  and Mom's English Garden.

The box is a snap to put together and so is the beautiful Gerber daisy.  I quickly quilled a center for the daisy so to make a 'handle" for the little box.  I chose some fun summer colors and now I have a cute box to use for a gift, or even for decoration!

I hope you enjoyed today's project and that you are inspired to enter before the end of the month.

Honeycomb Gift Box Tower

Hi, It's Allie and I'm excited to share a fun gift box project today using the JGW Blooming Card Kit with SDS Basic Deep Lid Boxes, shown below.

I made three of the hexagon boxes, reducing each layer to 75% of the original size.  I chose the hexagon because it looked like honeycomb to me. I kept the bee the original size. This project takes 2 sheets of paper and some scraps. You'll need some patterned paper, and some solid cardstock. I used scraps for the bee wings and the black backer on the bee trail.

Here is what the files will look like when you are ready to cut. I've just colored to make the images easier to identify.

And here's my Honeycomb Gift Box Tower.

I decorated with some flowers that I spritzed with Gold Shimmer Spritz. I attached these with Hot Glue. Each flower is glued to the base of the box OR the lid, so each layer can still open.
The bee trail is glued to the lid of the second box.

Here is the view from the back. It's a little boring!

And here are the layers opened. I did glue each lid to the base below. I felt it made the tower more sturdy.

Fill with treats and enjoy. I think this would be a perfect little gift box for someone's birthday, or a great centerpiece for a table - you can make the boxes as large as you'd like, and stack as many as you want!

Here are some pictures of the work in progress. I double inked the patterned papers using Rich Cocoa Memento on the edges, and rubbing in some Peanut Brittle Memento on the box and the patterned papers as well, to tie the color scheme together.

You can see the difference using the two colors - the yellows weren't a great match, and the Rich Cocoa really helps the panels to pop.

I inked the edges of the bee's wings with Summer Sky Memento and added some glitter.

Thanks for joining me today.

Note: I cut my files using the Silhouette Cameo. I recommend a new or sharp blade on a slower setting, as there are some tight angles in the box portions.

Girl Baptism Card with Beth

Hello!  Today I am sharing a card that I made for my baby niece's baptism.  I wanted it to have a simple elegance and I think that was exactly how it turned out!  I used sets from SVG Attic for This card.
The cross and kneeling girl are from the Full Of Grace set.  The daisies across the bottom are from the 3D Spring Flowers set.  Behind the flowers is a strip of simply white rumpled ribbon and I used my homemade enamel dots for the flower centers.  The background is embossed with a paisley embossing folder.  The cross and girl are each popped up with a layer of thin foam tape for extra dimension.
Don't forget...You have one week left to enter in our anything goes contest!  There are SVG Attic gift cards up for grabs!  Click HERE for all the details and to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sweet Shop with Courtney

I am thrilled to be up today with my project.

I used the Sweet Shop Party SVG Kit to create the Cupcake Sweet Shop.

I cut and assembled exactly as pictured.  It was fun to embellish and decorate.

 The little milk bottle is embellished with a flourish cupcake from the Flourished Cupcake SVG file.  I cut the cupcake out of vinyl and adhered it to the milk bottle.  I just love those little milk bottles.  I ordered them online from Pick Your Plum.  

This was such a fun project.

I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a fabulously crafty day !! ♥

So Sweet Berries -- with Julie

Hello, everyone.  Julie Odil here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers with some berry sweet inspiration. We've had a cool, wet summer here in NW Wisconsin, so strawberry season is going longer than usual this year.  I love berry season!  That was the inspiration behind today's project.

This shaped card from SVG Attic is called the "Sweet Sentiment Card SVG Collection".
Cards like this are so fun because you can get many different looks depending on the papers you use.  The designer papers on this card are all Echo Park Dots and Stripes. 
I hope you enjoyed this berry sweet card -- gotta go pick berries!

Perfect Picnic: Watermelon Gift Box

Hello, Allie here with a project from the Perfect Picnic kit.

Perfect Picnic Kit from SVG ATTIC

 I created the watermelon box.
What a perfectly summery gift box.
I resized the pieces in the kit 80% to make a 5 inch round box.

It was perfect for these delicious treats.

I finished the top off with some bling, flowers, and baubles.

I can't wait to make the rest of the pieces in the Perfect Picnic kit.
Thanks for joining me today.
