Cupcake Biscuit Box ~ with Cyndy

Happy Friday everyone.  I missed you last week but I hope you enjoyed Lisa's tribute to our Hero's.  If you missed her blog post here is the link The End of The Journey of Seventy Boots with Lisa, it is a wonderful story.

Today I decided to the cupcake biscuit box from JGW Take the Cake.  It is such a cute box I just LOVE it.

JGW Take the Cake

I used Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate Collection and it looks just beautiful!

I decided not to glue down my candle so I could use the box by itself if I decide to, either way it works perfectly.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a crafty weekend.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

A Dozen Roses for Mom

Tracy here today from the Idea Closet and I wanted to share a beautiful idea for Mother's day.

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to make something special and from the heart  for both my mom and my mother-in-law.

They both love roses so ... SVG Attic to the rescue (again).

JGW Flower Boxcard Bouquets

I changed things up just a little but not much this time.

To start with, you will want to cut all of your pieces out.
I cut the leaves out of a darker shade of green then what I used to cut the stem pieces.
Then I inked all of my flowers pieces, leaves and stems.  Don't forget the heart also.

Next, I changed the tag.  I was ok with the heart but I didn't want to use the word Valentine so I deleted that and then typed my own "I Love You"
* a great tip-- when cutting out very small letters, use vinyl instead of paper.  It works a lot better when removing it from the mat and placing it on your project!

One everything is cut, inked and ready to go, follow Jodi's instructions here.
She makes it so easy to understand.

Once you have done one, you will want to do a second and a third and a ...

This Card Box stands almost 11" tall, and folds down for easy mailing.  It is so fun and easy to do and the perfect way to give mom a dozen roses that wont fade, wilt or die.

I am off to make some more bouquet  box cards.  
(I think I will even keep one for myself!)

In the mean time, I hope you will check out my blog to find lots more ideas, tips and projects made with designs from SVG Attic!

Spring Showers

Happy Monday! This post is brought to you because our weather has been very much spring like. Hope you enjoy! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here today. I used the following SVG Attic collections to put this together:

For the Birdie I used the following to pull it together:

For the card I wanted to give the 3D feel so I combined the umbrella from the Spring Swag to the sentiment. I turned the sentiment into a card.
I also used the following to pull it all together:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please make sure you check back again soon.

The End of The Journey of Seventy Boots with Lisa

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa from In The Crafting Cave with you today!  Last year I was asked to create a few centerpieces for A Warriors On The Water Committee Dinner to be held at my parents home. So I created five of these fantastic JGW MY Hero 3D Combat Boots stuffed them with white shredded crinkle paper and inserted two American Flags. These five boots turned into 75 boots when I was asked to create 70 more for this year's Icebreaker held here at Sports, USA - Ft. Bragg, NC

 Warriors On The Water is a Military Appreciation Bass Fishing Tournament. It's a day when 150+ Soldiers are paired with Bass Fishermen to spend a day fishing and a chance to win some fabulous prizes. Even more than that, it is a day that someone says to them..."Thank You for your sacrifices!".

The Icebreaker is held on the Wednesday night before the Friday Tournament. It's a night of fun for the Military Men and Women who attend as well as for our volunteers and fishermen. They expect over 400 people to be in attendance and will have guest speakers from the Military representing all branches whose troops are fishing the event.  The fishermen will be paired up with their Military counterparts and have a chance to talk strategy for the big tournament on Friday.  
70 more boots! 71 in this photo. We made two extras, just in case.
So this is where the 75 boots come into play. They are centerpieces for all the tables at the Warriors on the Water Icebreaker. WOW, literally! It was such an honor to make these boots knowing, personally, what our service members endure every day whether their home with loved ones or stationed/deployed around the world. 

4 - 8 hour days of cutting.

56 hours to assemble. 7 - 8 hour days.

One helper, my very own hero, my hubby! 

Four boxes ready to go!

One of the first boots from the original post.

One of the original boots nearly a year later.

Wherever you see flags, there's a boot.
The boots were a huge hit! I think a few walked off, but that's okay, too. 
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I know it's a bit long, but I feel worth every word.
And if you're ever in need of a boot, you know where to go, SVG Attic!

You can see more photos at In The Crafting Cave with Lisa.

As always, thanks for joining us.
And have an amazing weekend!

Teacher's Bloom

With teacher appreciation and mother's day around the corner, I figured this project could go for either. I plan on using it for teacher appreciation week though!

Party Gift Bag with Angeline

Happy Monday!
Angeline here to share with you a fun cute party gift bag I made using the SDS Birthday Bash kit.

SVG Attic: Party gift bag with Angeline #svgattic #scrappyscrappy #svg #cutfile #diecut #party #birthday #giftbag #balloon

I made this cute bag with the Balloon Spiral Card as a decorative piece on the front. I added a backing piece + a doily and I cut the balloon out with some gold foiled cardstock. Then I finished  it up with some cute pink ribbon -- and ta-da! 
All ready to PAR-TAY!

Graduation Card and Layout with Beth

Happy Saturday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I decided to go with a graduation theme since my 6 year old is going to have his Kindergarten graduation soon and talks about it every day!
First I created the step card from the JGW Up For Grads set.  I used the school colors for the card.  I created a tassel out of Totally Red Trendy Twine for the hat.
Then I made the matching envelope that is included in that set.
Then I created an 8.5x11" graduation layout that is from the Hat's Off SVG Collection.  It is actually a 12x12" layout in the set, but I imported all the pieces into my software and sized them all to fit on a 8.5x11" sheet of paper.
I added some stickers that came with the paper pack along with the SVG's.  I also placed some homemade enamel dots on the page.
I popped up the numbers with foam tape and added a bow of Celebration Trendy Twine.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
