My Hero

Good Morning,

Katie Sr. here with the honor of sharing with you a new kit from SVG Atticfor all of the Heroes and Soldiers in your life.  Jodi took my little idea and created a marvelous banner, cards and 3D boot.

Now on to the projects:

I would like to point out that I did not make the above boot.  Jodi was kind enough to mail it to me so that I can share this in my post.

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

We'll Always Have Paris ~ with Cyndy

We'll always have Paris (this line was used in at least seven different movies).  That's what I think when I look at the 3d Eiffel Tower from SDS Paris Voyage.  Summer always makes me dream about traveling to far away places and Paris is definitely on my list of places I want to see.  I had been holding on to a stash of Graphic 45, Come Away With Me ~ waiting for the perfect project and I knew this was it!

3d paper display with travel case, Eiffel tower, train and plane.

The Round Traveling Case from JGW Fashionable French went together so nicely.  It has straight edges that make it easier to put together.  Just take an extra minute to make sure your top strap is facing the right way (I put mine on backwards).  I didn't re-size this box.

The 3d Eiffel Tower  is from SDS Paris Voyage, I cut this at the size it imports.  Make sure to take a look at the directions for this one, it is a little tricky.  I love the detail in this file, it is worth the time to put it together.

The Bi-plane is in the JGW Flight School and is really cute. 
 It's smaller than I thought it would be, so I didn't have to re-size it.

The train is from JGW Christmas Express.  It was too big so I cut it out at 50%.  I left off the Christmas elements and added some squares on the box car to make it look like a passenger car.

I put floral foam blocks in the bottom of the case and covered them with my shredded paper.  I used floral wire with the plane to make it look like it was flying.  I feed it through the tail and then looped it back around  and stuck the end in the foam block.

I just love the way everything turned out!  
The Graphic 45 paper fit the project perfectly, I'm glad I still had it. 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my project.

Do what inspires you,

School Bus Box with Beth

Hello all!  Today I am sharing a project that I created using SVG Attic's Gearing Up 4 School set.
 I made the school bus box to give to my boys' bus driver.  He is so awesome with the kids and deserves a treat once in a while :)  The number of their bus is 02 and that is why I added it to the sides of the bus.  I also cut out an octagon for a stop sign.
 It opens up to holds treats inside.  Believe it or not, there is a whole bag of fun size candy bars in there!
 Here is a close up front view...
 And the back.  I lightly used tan chalk ink on the edges to add a bit more dimension.
You can also find Cyndy's version of this school bus box HERE.  It is very fun and much different than mine!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Birthday Plane card ~ with Angeline Choo

Happy Monday!
Angeline from ScrappyScrappy sharing with you a gate card I made for a cute boy's birthday that is coming up.

I have used the SDS Ready for Take Off kit which is just perfect for boys (and men too)!

I have found some paper which was perfect for this coz it had airplane motifs on it. I used some unconventional colors of green & orange and it turned out wonderfully! :) I also added some enamel dots to the clouds for that extra texture.

The best part about this card is the propeller can actually move! Perfect for the birthday boy to have fun with his birthday card.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful week ahead.

Time For A Cup Of Tea

Lisa from The Crafting Cave with you today, ready to share a
 cupcake holder turned gift box and a tea cup! I used the cupcake holder
from SVG Attic's Sweet Shop Party to create a gift box for
a Tea Cup/Tea gift. I used the teacup from SVG Attic's Mom's English Garden Set and
at the moment it is not available.
 It's being reworked to make it more compatible with your machines.
 However, keep checking SVG Attic's site for it.

A little peek through the window with and without the cup.

Okay, first let me say this.....I was blown away by
the size of this cupcake holder. I wasn't thinking full size cupcakes.
I was thinking mini, I don't know why. I figured if nothing else, I would use the cupcake holder
turned Tea Shop to gift the tea and wrap the cup/saucer separately.
No need, the box is big enough!

I was a little intimidated when I first started looking at the cupcake holder.
I know, it looks like it would take some time! I'm hear to tell you, it doesn't.

All I did was cut out the pieces using two cutting mats. I assembled as
I cut. I let the paper do all the work for me. So, literally, I cut and glued.
I just made sure to have my supplies and file organized before I started.
 I layered the bottom for stability with two layers of paper and one layer
corrugated paper. I punched two holes for ribbon to close and added the tag.

This is the cup from Mom's English Garden Set.

If you have ever wanted to try this cupcake holder and shied away from it,
go for it! It's easy peasy! And the possibilities are endless!  You will be seeing
me use it again and again!

I hope your weekend is filled with crafty goodness!

Congrats Grad Card with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with a graduation card to share.  It is from SVG Attic's Hat's Off collection.
I made it in black and white tones so that it would be appropriate for a guy or a girl.
 It has a money holder on the inside that makes giving a gift so simple!
I added foam tape behind the word Grad for extra dimension.  I really love the glitter paper I used for the hat.  It is so shiny in real life!  I made the tassel from white embroidery floss.
The Hat's Off collection is perfect for graduation and I also really like the Up For Grads set for even more graduation projects!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
