We're All a Little Mad Here ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning crafty friends, thank you for joining me.  Today I have a project from SVG Attic using the Mourners Hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit.  This is my favorite hat file!

I shrunk my hat it stands only five inches tall.  I love these hats in this size.

I added some embellishments that I got from Aliexpress.  I love the prices of this store and the shipping was reasonable.  Most items arrived within three weeks.

  I have always struggled in the past when putting the rim on this hat.  This time I glued the pieces one at a time to the rim and then glued the upper part of the hat together.  It was so much easier to put together this way!  Thank you for stopping by.

Tahitian Palm Box

Hello all. Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here to show you my version of my only chance of a vacation this year! Sadly this will be the closest to the beach I will get.

It's been awhile since I've done one of my Tahitian huts. I decided to combine it with the Palm Tree 3D Nut Holder file.

For the hut, I used the Box Hex Med with Lid file. I modified the lid to look like a roof and added some strips of paper for the shingles.
Next, I took the circle (where the cup of treats would go) out and decided to do the box in a blue to signify water.
Next I cut out several Flourished Jellyfish files on vellum and used some simple inks to color the tentacles.
Finished Project:

Dragonflies in the Sky

Hello and welcome! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here today!  I'm so excited to share with you this card! I was asked by a good friend to create an anniversary card for him to give his bride of 19 years! Of course I said YES!!! He said he wanted dragonflies and what he wanted it to say. This is what I created.


I started with the base card from Be Mine double bi fold Valentine a7 card.
I edited out the Flourish and made them a bit smaller to fit the card.


The font is a die from Jaded Blossom.
The paper is Doodlebug Design.
For the dragonflies I used white cardstock and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to watercolor them.
Sequins are from Kennedy Grace.


The paper inside is embossed with Cloud Die from Lawn Fawn.

Thank you for stopping by for all the details!

Tropical Paradise


…...is where I just returned from two days ago. 

Hello to you and Happy Sunday. I'm trying to rest from our fabulous Summer Vacation to the Balearic Islands in Spain - more specific Mallorca. Ahhhh it was fun and HOT.

I've tried to recreate the feeling in this project I'm about to show you. I'm starting to long back just looking at it - sigh.

First I made the Pineapple Box from SVGAttic's JGW Tropical Haven kit:


I used AC Cardstock in Lemon, Canary, Squash, Moss, Leaf and Pine and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink. I also used 72 mini glitter brads for the scales.

Such a fun project but time consuming due to the scales on the Pineapple.

The Pineapple is a box and the lid lifts off and then…..


…..it doubles as a drink - Mmmmmm Piña Colada.

The Parasol Straw Slider is part of the cute JGW Tiki Luau kit from SVGAttic and features two more cute sliders.....


......the Sun and the Sea Turtle Straw Sliders. Cute aren't they?

The 3D Coconut Drink is made from the same file as the Pineapple but I left out the top and the scales. Instead I embossed the panels with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and inked all with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks. The cardstock is AC in Cheastnut for coconut and Lemon, Goldfish, Moss and Leaf for the sliders. Both straws are from AC.

Next I made a pair of Flip-flops also from the JGW Tropical Haven kit:


These are made from AC Cardstock in Fireberry, Goldfish, Moss and Lemon and decorated with patterned paper from Carta Bella "Summer Splash".

All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks and the two red brads are from my ever growing stash.

The Flip-flops are also boxes so treats or gift cards can be placed inside. They are very easy to make.

No tropical paradise without flowers……


…...so I made the Lei from the JGW Tiki Luau kit.

I wanted it to be very colorful to match the awesome paper from Carta Bella, so I used AC Cardstock in Fireberry, Pool, Blossom, Lemon and Moss for it. I found some metallic colored beads in my stash to use as spacers.

This was the easiest of the all - just make the flowers and leaves and tread them onto the string - voila! Cool children's project I would think.

Finally I made a card to go with rest of the things:


This Stay Cool Tropical Box Card is also from the JGW Tropical Haven kit and is made from AC Cardstock in the same colors as the rest of the project and decorated with the patterned paper from Carta Bella. 

I get so many withdrawals just looking at it.

And here you have the whole set:


Yes - I cheated and made the whole thing in advance - come on.....nobody makes this much in two days. Ehm.....almost nobody…..hmmmm I kinda did. Oh well…..I'm a nut.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my creations as much as I did and that you got a bit of a feel of Tropical Paradise.

Beach Bag and Fish Cards


Happy July 4th! Tracy  here today and  I hope everyone is having a fun and safe holiday.

Today is my turn at SVG Attic and when I saw this new collection
Grab The Bait, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.

We have a family reunion/ lake trip planned for later this week and I  thought it would be fun to have some little handouts or favors.

To start with I turned the Creel 3D flat Gift Bag into a beach bag.  
The paper is from Echo Park and I just love all the bright colors.
I think I will fill the bag with Fish Crackers; it will be a perfect gift for the little ones!



I love the little magnetic fish in this kit...

... so I turned them into cards.


Its very easy to do, just decide if you want them to open from the side or the bottom, then mirror a copy of the offset base and weld.  
I was able to delete some of the pieces since they didn't need to be as thick and heavy as the magnetic fish.

For the blue fish I cut part from blue glitter paper and for the smaller orange fish I used printed paper.

I am really happy with how these turned out and think I will make the rest of the fish.  
They will make cute cards that can be tied to more  goody bags.

Be sure to get you kit here and if you need the tutorial, Jody has made it so easy, just follow the instructions here.

Thank you again for joining me.

Ice Cream Sundae with Beth

Happy Monday morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this sweet summery ice cream sundae treat.  The SVG that I used is from SVG Attic's CG Fabulous 50's set.  It really is such a fun nostalgic set!
All the pieces were cut using my Silhouette Cameo 2.  The patterned papers are from DCWV's Romatic Life stack and I used Scotch Tacky Glue to assemble it.
I kept it fairly simple, only embellishing with Cotton Candy Trendy Twine and a sentiment that was included in the paper stack.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Be a Unicorn

I am ashamed! Very ashamed of myself. Because I didn't send a good friend of mine something for her Birthday last week. It was in my calendar but I've been so busy getting ready to go on vacation, that I didn't have time to make her anything and of that I am ashamed.
So better late than never, I'm going to send her this Unicorn Rainbow 3D Box Card....

….cause I know she loves unicorns as much as I do and this will put a smile on her face and maybe….just maybe….she'll forgive me for being so late.
I made the darling card with AC Cardstock in various colors to match the Graphic 45 paper (Fairy Dust) that I used and then I sprinkled some fairy dust in dots here and there for magic and good luck.



The sentiment says Congratulations in Danish and it's written on the Magical Layered Banner.
It's a very fun card to make and it won't be my last.
Thanks for stopping by today - please feel free to leave a comment to yell at me or just to tell me if you like the card.
