Santa's Little Helpers with Lisa

Hi, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a few Christmas Cards I created using SVG Attic's Santa's Little Helpers Collection.  These cards would be perfect for kids to make for teachers and classmates. Once you cut the pieces, it's just a matter of assembling Santa's Little Helpers. I kept it very simple by placing them on a background I created using an embossing folder and white cardstock. I really wanted these cuties to pop off the card.

I used patterned paper from my stash to create everything except the cream and black cardstock. I added some fun elements like googly eyes, enamel dots, and a red pom.

Happy Birthday, Jodi!

Good morning SVG Attic friends. Today is an extra special day, because it is Jodi's birthday!  She is the designer behind all of the files on our website that start with JGW.  Not only that, she is such an amazing and generous person, that we decided to pay a little bit of kindness back to her with a card shower!


The ladies from our Inspiration Team have created something special for her and we wanted to share them with you as well. Click on their names above their cards to see all the details on their blogs.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all of the birthday cards we have shared with you today. Make sure you stop by each of the DT ladies' blogs to see the details of their amazing cards!

Please join in the birthday fun by leaving Jodi birthday wishes in the comments below or on HER BLOG.

Christmas Kisses and Cookies

Is there any treat that says Christmas more than cookies or chocolate?
Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today I am sharing two of my favorite Christmas treats.
Cookies and Chocolate Kisses.

The file is from the JGW Beary Sweet Colection.

JGW Beary Sweet

This is a fun little kit full of teddy bears.
I used the 3D Chocolate Candy  and I love how it turned out.

I left it the original size for Hersey Chocolate Kisses

Then made one bigger (set the scale to 150% in Silhouette Studio) for some chocolate chip cookies!

The tag that comes with it is already set up for a print and cut with instructions here to make it.
Change the words to say Merry Christmas.

Use some metallic, or foil cardstock, to make it really shimmer and you have the perfect gift box to share with your friends and neighbors.

Christmas Note Cards

Happy Monday!  Hope all are having a great December!  Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here today so I thought I would show you what you could do with the vinyl files if you don't work with vinyl.  I made 4x4 note cards.

I used the file JGW Nativity Balls and just used the negative cuts.
I added a bow in the corners to finish these cards off. The Twine is Trendy Twine's Peppermint Stick.

The paper is from DCWV- Merry Memories Stack

Hope you enjoyed the idea! Have a great day and see you soon!

Christmas Sleigh with Beth

Hello crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I have always loved the Santa's sleigh in the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set, but hadn't ever made it, so I decided now was the perfect time!  The papers I used for the sleigh itself are from DCWV's Cranberry Christmas stack.  
What is a sleigh without a little decoration?  I added the wreath from the gift tag in the RW English Cottage kit to both sides of the sleigh using papers from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack.  The bow is Cranberry Trendy Twine.
Now on to the treats!  I added some homemade peanut brittle into the sleigh itself.  Then look at the picture below...there is a secret compartment below the sleigh that you can fill with more treats or a gift card like I did.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafy day!

Christmas Angel ~ with Cyndy G.

Happy Friday crafters!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I took my family on a first time trip to Disney World and we had a wonderful time.  The only problem is, since there was no turkey and no Christmas decorating, I have to keep reminding myself that Christmas is almost here.  To help get me started on some of my Christmas decorating I made the JGW Liberty Angel and converted her into a tree topper.

She goes together pretty easily.  I was afraid to tackle the hair technique Jodi shares in her tutorial
so I might have to redo her head trying it out ;)

I just love these angels!  I also made one for breast cancer awareness (with no hair).  To make her fit on the tree I left off the legs and didn't put the bottom on her torso.  It worked perfectly!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season, thanks for stopping by.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

Deco Nativity Scene Block

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with my take on the newest Nativity Ball set!

I didn't have any extra ornaments lying around, however I did have an extra 8 x 8 glass deco block.

First I sprayed the block with a window frost spray to give it more of a soft glow.

Next I cut out each element that I wanted on my block in vinyl, weeded the pieces, and applied them to the block.

I decided to add some blue LED lights instead of white ones to help set the scene!

The pictures really don't do this justice. The soft glow of the blue lights in a dark room, perfect ambiance!

Materials Used:
Deco Block (most craft stores have them)
Glass frosting spray
SVG Attic JGW Nativity Balls
JGW Nativity Balls
Blue LED lights (10 count, probably would have looked better with 20!)
