Halloween Pumpkin with Beth

Hello all, this is Beth from Beth's Beauties!  Halloween will be here tomorrow!  Are you all done decorating your pumpkins?  If not, I have the perfect solution for you...put vinyl on them!
 I used SVG Attic's Raven Quest set.  I used white and black Oracal 651 vinyl (outdoor vinyl with a permanent adhesive) to decorate my pumpkin.  It was so much fun!  I loved being creative in the placement of the swirls.

PLUS... SVG Attic's sister site, SnapDragon Snippets, has a GRAND RE-OPENING!  This is so awesome!  A brand new site, multiple designers and a chance to win a Silhouette Portrait!!  
YES---You could win a Silhouette Portrait!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I hope you are having an awesome October with all the weather changes and the beautiful colors all around.

Since I am a Breast Cancer survival I'm always looking for ideas to make paper projects to share my support for my "Warrior Sisters,"especially in October.

I looked at the Bewitched Boutique SVG Kit and I though of my BC Awareness stamp by Unity Stamps "Kick Cancer's Butt." I had some left over paper from another project and translated my thoughts into creating this kit.

As you can see they can be presented as a set, or individually.  The Boot is hollow inside so it can be filled with cookies, candies, or even tea bags, 
chocolates, etc.

I added the tag that comes in the SVG kit and attached it to the top of the booth with a clothes pin with a pink flower and a ribbon.

On the card, I added the tag to the top and a BC Awareness ribbon on the tpe/

Here are some close ups:

I used pearls for the buttons.

I added a ribbon with roses and pearls to the boot to make it look more Victorian.

The front of the boot has very thin ribbon because the holes are very small, but they can be enlarged with your crop-a-dial and use wider ribbon.

I also used the witches hat, but converted it to a favor box.  This box can also be hung with a ribbon or twine and placed as a center piece on the table.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what other projects can be created with this SVG kit and think about other occasions you can use it just by changing your paper and embellishments.

Have a wonderful week and see you in November where I will post another idea for your table decorations.

Bucket full of Flowers ~ with Angeline Choo

Hi. It's Angeline here and I've got a bucket full of flowers today!

When I saw the "Autumn Splendor" kit, I immediately had to get it coz I could see this bucket sitting on my table top, making a beautiful decoration piece for my humble abode.

The flowers are easy to make with this kit. Just layers after layers of unending goodness :)

Here's a view from the top to see that you only need a few flowers to fill the whole bucket up!

I've added brads to the center of the flowers and molded each layer up for that extra dimension.
I've also used some metallic paper for the flower bucket for that extra shine :)

For the leaves, I've embossed it with my Big Shot to give some added texture.

This kit would also be perfect to gift someone a bucket full of flowers that would last much longer than real ones :)


Oh and did you know that TODAY, the Sister Site of SVG Attic --  SnapDragon Snippets has a GRAND RE-OPENING?

Go take a visit now and you may very well walk away with a Silhouette Portrait! 

Have an awesome week ahead!

I created the Scarecrow Card using the Anchors Aweigh Step Card from All at Sea SVG file.  I rezised and layered the corn and the and pumpkin from the Autumn Splendor Gift Bag as well as the scarecrow from the new Fall Ensemble SVG Kit.   The background for the card was created by using a sunrise stencil and adding distress inks.  The pumpkin closes up nicely so the card can go in the envelope provided.

I've been admiring the die cut inlaid cards I've been seeing on different blogs so I created my own using my electronic cutter instead of dies.  I used the Harvest Blessings Card Kit.  From the Autumn Treasures card, from the same kit, I cut out the yellow layer then the sentiment in a green color then inlaid it on the negative cut out.  The leaves are from the same kit and the Four Acorns Card.  I embossed the acorns to give them a more realistic look.

These are just two ideas for using different kits and putting them together so you can make them your own creations.

Halloween Canning Jars ~ with Cyndy G

I can't believe Halloween is just a little more than a week away!  There is still time to get one more Halloween project in.  Today I am sharing the JGW Canning Essentials Kit SDS Spooky Cards and the SDS Skull Medallion.  As soon as I saw the Jars I knew what I wanted to do with them.

I love the way they turned out!  I shrunk the cards down to make tags out of them.

I used the cross bones as my poison symbol on the jars and my favorite touch was adding a red oval to the end of the pickle to make it look like a witch's finger!

My kids loved these jars.  I was informed that they like the big jar best.  When I asked why they said "Because you can eat what's in it."  I should have known that.

I filled the jar with eyeball gum that I found at Michael's.  What a fun project.  I love the versatility these sets have.

What I used to create this project:
JGW Canning Essentials Kit,
SDS Spooky Cards
SDS Skull Medallion.
Simple shapes - Oval
Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows paper
Eyeball gum

Please post pictures on our FB page of the ways you have used this set, I would love to see them!  Until next time.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G

Fall Pumpkins ~ with Courtney

It can't be Fall without pumpkins.

I think we all have a weakness for pumpkins.

I love them all.  Any color, any size.

So when SVG Attic came out with the Sam the Scarecrow kit and I spied those pumpkins, I knew I had to make them.

They are so fun and easy to assemble.

The bow on the white pumpkin is also a file in the same kit.

I enjoyed embellishing them very much.  That is always my favorite part of the project.

I hope you love them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a fabulously crafty day ! ♥
