America "Wood" Blocks

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today is my turn to share on the SVG Attic.
If you are still looking for a fun Patriotic project I have the perfect one for you today.

These blocks look like wood blocks but they are 100% paper and so easy to do.

The file is from the JGW July 4th Block Party Kit and if you haven't seen it yet you need to check it out.

JGW July 4th Block Party

There are so many fun projects in this kit, I wasn't sure where to begin but my favorite is the America Blocks.

I cut all of my blocks from a brown cardstock and then inked them up a lot to give it a wood look.
To create the panels, just do an offset (silhouette) or a small square (Cricut) and glue to the front of each block.

Cut two copies of the letters.  Glue one to the front of the box and then layer the second letters with foam pop dots.

Add some twine and its all done.

Enjoy your beautiful "wood" blocks!

Sewing Framed Art with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I really was excited to make this project!  It is a vinyl saying with paper and lace accents in a frame.
The vinyl saying comes from the JGW Just Sew set.  I cut it out in black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and layered it on the patterned papers I chose from DCWV's Royal Gypsy stack.
I added navy lace hem facing around the bottom and used the thimble and diamond quilt block files from JGW Parlor Patchwork as well as the scissors file from JGW Just Sew to the left corner.  The finishing touch was a threaded needle that I wove into the lace.  I then placed it all into a 8.5x11" frame.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Birthday ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, thank you for stopping by.  Today I am going to share a quick and easy Birthday card I made for my niece.  It is from JGW Take the Cake.

Birthday card

The paper I used is from Graphic 45 - A Time To Celebrate.

I also used some Tickled Pink and Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine as the string on my balloons.

Birthday card

I personalized it by adding my nieces' name to the banner and popped it with some foam tape.  This card is very easy to customized for any person young/old or boy/girl - all by the paper you select.

Thank you again for stopping by.

Floral Topiary

Hello all! Sonja with the I-team here to share with you a floral topiary pot. Now I added more flowers and greenery to mine, just to showcase a small example of what can become of this wonderful set coming soon.

There are a lot of new sets coming out so keep checking on SVG Attic's website.
However, I couldn't wait for this one to come out in a set so I grabbed the 3D Flower Ball and Topiary Pot from the Silhouette store and got to work! I decided to go the full topiary route instead of just doing the 3D flower ball, because well I've done plenty of flower balls this year already!

 One of the things I really enjoyed about this project was the ability to make each flower different by using a different sheet of cardstock.
 With all the paper from one stack, they all match.
 I just happened to have some gold brads on hand to help with the pop of texture.
For the bottom of the pot, I made smaller flower buds and added some green leaves and ivy.

The construction of the flower buds are actually rather simple. There are a lot though so plan ahead for some time to make this project!
Tutorials are found on Needles 'n' Knowledge blog.

Materials Used: 

DCWV 'Preserved Flower' stack
SVG Attic 3D Flower Topiary files
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio~Designers Edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Recollections gold brads

Moments Captured with Lisa

Hi, everyone and welcome. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing this box and a mini album with you. I used the JGW Sunflower Sunshine Kit's Hex Box to create the box and mini album. 

I've had this paper in my stash for a very long time and it's been calling my name lately. To get started I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the Hex Box using two different patterns from the Echo Park "Oh, Snap" Kit. I do love paper kits because you usually get the coordinating stickers. And I did a lot of decorating with the stickers. Once I had the box assembled I moved onto the album.
You'll notice the Hex Box has a base "liner" used to reinforce the box. I used that liner to create the pages in my mini album. I even played around with three of the hexagons welding them together and then adding perforated lines and a cut line to create a three-page foldout.

You can find all the details on my blog; The Relativity of Paper.

 As always, thanks for joining us!

Tropical Box Card

Summer is in full force now and it is a little toasty. 

I can't help but think of warm, sunny beaches, flip flops and the sand.

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today I created this fun, bright box card.

I love this card.  It can be found in the  JGW Tropical Haven Collection at SVG Attic.

JGW Tropical Haven
and the assembly instructions  can be found here.

One of the things I love about this card is it includes some of my favorite summer items.
The other thing I love about it, is the bright colors;

but my favorite part about this card, and all box cards, are they fold up so nice and are perfect for mailing.  Even with all the foam pop dots I used!

I hope you will give box cards a try, if you haven't already, and this Stay Cool Tropical box card is perfect!
