Bus Driver Appreciation Week

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with two projects I made using the collapsible bus card from the JGW Back 2 School file. 

A few years back, I created the bus box from the SDS Gearing Up 4 School file for my son's driver at that time. I filled it with all sorts of little goodies that I think a driver needs. Like ear plugs and Advil.

Last week was bus driver appreciation week for my son's school. He has had the same driver's for two years and I always like to do something special for them. Remembering the bus box I did a few years ago, gave me the inspiration to do this bus bucket set for their gifts!

 I decided to go with an all things yellow theme for their gift buckets. Why? Because we DEFINITELY could use some sunshine in these parts! Plus it matches the bus's so why not. 
 Each gift bucket has a chapstick, gum, two kinds of candies, a plant to grow, and a little duck.
 Each bus is the same with the exception of customizing a few things like their names on the side. 
I used my eBrush to spray subtle yellow highlights around each object on the light and dark yellow cardstock. 
 I added brads for the headlights and ran the chrome bumpers and silver lining of the wheels through my Sizzix Big Shot with a Darice embossing folder. 

 A few changes: I moved the stop sign to the drivers side and added a little extension arm so it moves. I added brads to the wheels for a little pop of texture. 
 The back of the bus, I wanted to have the message for each recipient. Plus I added tires and lights to match the front of the bus.
 Overall, I think they will enjoy their gifts and be able to keep the bus card for a long time. 
 I have it on a good authority that his bus driver from 2015 has kept a few of my projects on his desk when he was promoted!

You are my cup of Tea Patch card with Angeline

Hi crafty friends.
Angeline here to share with you a card I made using the brand new JGW Sewn from the Heart kit.

SVG Attic: You are my cup of Tea Patch card with Angeline #svgattic #scrappyscrappy #sweetstampshop #cratepaper #card #cardmaking #papercraft #patchcard #teatime

I used the Cathedral Window 9-patch card and instead of folding the circles inwards, I did it outwards to create a different look. I also chose different patterned papers from the same collection so it would look cohesive.
Then I added some stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop, which I have already stamped, fussy cut and colored withy my copics.

Here's a close up of my card!

Shabby Chic Birthday Cake

Happy Saturday all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you, and today is extra special because it is my birthday!  I decided I would make my very own birthday cake for the occasion ;)
 I started out with a 3D birthday cake file from SVG Attic's SDS 3D Cake Box Kit and papers from DCWV's Country Floral stack.
The three tiers are made with different papers and the flowers match the pink and yellow roses on the middle tier.  The small flowers were created using the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set. For those, I cut 2 layers of petals at 1.5" each.  I spritzed them with water, scrunched them and let them dry before assembling.
The cake topper rose is much more full, but it also is created from the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set.  I used 8 layers on this one, two of each of the following sizes:  2.36", 2",  1.64",  1.28".  I also misted these with water and scrunched them prior to assembly.
The fun part is that the bottom two tiers are actually boxes that can hold gifts!  I think I am going to have to get some chocolate to hide in these layers to make a stash just for me ;)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

St. Patrick's Day Hats with Lisa

Hi, everyone and welcome. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper bringing you today's inspiration.
It's one month till St. Patrick's Day so I thought now would be an excellent time to get started on those St Patty cards. These cards are so simple to make and to be honest that's the reason I went with them for today's inspiration. I really should be in bed resting and getting over this horrible cold but here I am and here are the two cards I created using the SDS Charmingly Green - Leprechaun Hat Card.

 I used two shades of green cardstock, black cardstock, and gold from my stash. There really isn't much to making these cards, but they are so cute. You could emboss them with shamrocks, use them for a Mad Hatter Tea Party by only adding a white rectangle with 10/6 wrote on it, the possibilities are endless. 

As always, thanks for joining us!

Bride's Maid Luncheon with SVG Attic

Tracy here and this week we are getting ready for a Bride's Maid Luncheon.

My daughter asked me to put together a little center piece and gift bags for Saturday.

Although these are not really her colors I loved the gold, cream and black together and how elegant they looked.

The gift bag was created using the Valentine Treat Box from the new 

JGW Heartfelt Delivery

This is a bran new set that has some really fun files in it.  Check out the mail truck, you can use it year round!

Instead of the words "be mine" I added Thank you and cut them out of Gold Foil Vinyl from Cricut.
Loved it.

The box is made to hold a little box of valentine candy but it fit the jewelry boxes she had perfectly..

The 3 Tiered cake was a lot of fun to make and we are both very happy with the way it turned out.
The file is from the SDS 3D Cake Box Kit and the flowers are from the  JGW Tropical Haven set.

I cut the flowers from Gold Foil paper and Black Glitter paper.
Use small brads to hold them together then glue them to the sides of the box.
I am excited for the way these turned out and my daughter loves them too.

If you have a wedding coming up, there is lots to do.  Make sure you have fun while your are doing it!

Springtime Bunny ~ with Cyndy G.

Happy Friday, thank you for stopping by.  Today I am sharing with you the wonderful  JGW 3d Button Jointed Bunny.  I just love the 3d figures.  I decided to shrink my bunny, I cut her at 70%.  She is about 9" tall (top of head).  I also used the garden hat from JGW Gaby's Garden and glued her ears to it.

3d paper bunny

I used Trendy Twine, Twisted Blue Berry around the brim of the hat and to tie her joints together.  The paper is Graphic 45, Robin's Egg from Botanical Tea.
