National Coffee Day

Let's face it, without coffee my world doesn't go round and round again! When I saw that National Coffee Day was September 19th, I decided to design something to give as a gift set.

Coffee is my most favorite thing to look forward to every morning. That first burst of hotness on the taste buds, nothing like it. So why not share it with someone else?!
To begin with this gift set, I found this great 3D Secretary Box from SVG Attic's 'JGW Mothers Moments' set.

I immediately knew that the back compartment would be a great place for cards to be stored. I knew that I wanted to simulate coffee stains, however I don't have that stamp so I had to improvise.
 To start with, I wanted a darker coffee mix and a lighter one just for contrast
 For the darker, I just let the coffee pod soak a bit longer in hot water
 Next I took a shot glass (since I planned to use these as accents for the cards, I needed a smaller bottom than a regular sized coffee cup)
 Dip and stamp
 I did one 12 x 12 white sheet and one 8.5 x 11 just in case I wanted to print and cut on it.
I set these aside and got to work on the base and drawer insert for the main project. *******Sugar Tip*******the paper does wilt a bit (thin cardstock), all I did to flatten it was run a hot iron over it. Works like a charm!
This insert is not included in the project. But it is simple enough to make. I just took the measurements of the inside of the drawer, added enough to bend flaps down for adhering to the inside of the box, and added five circles to house the pods.

Tim Holtz idea-ology hardware brings out the best on this gift set. Gives any project a bit of a boost. 
The hidden areas of this box created the perfect opportunity for me to fill it with little gifts and goodies.

This project smelled great the entire time I was cutting and gluing!

The six cards housed in the back are all different, but still share the same coffee cup from SVG Attic's 'SDS Coffee Break' set. 
 The coffee rings turned out good.
 Next I created nine tags to go into the hidden compartment. Each one is different

Creepy Candalabra

I can’t seem to get enough Halloween decor and my latest addition to my ever so growing collection, is the Creepy Candalabra from SVG Attic:

This gorgeous but spooky centerpiece is made from lots of AC Cardstock in Wine and Black. I made some black panels myself that wasn’t included in the original file as I wanted to put in tea lights and these panels made it much studier. I just love how you can see the Wine Cardstock under the black… really makes it pop
I think come Halloween, I will spray some spider webs onto the candalabra to make it even spookier and it will be the new table centerpiece for our Halloween Birthdays
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave me a small comment

Witch's Brew with Lisa

Welcome back and Happy Friday! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing two fun Halloween projects using the SDS Coffee Break

I love the Coffee Break Set because you can change it up for the holidays with fun pattern papers. 
It's very easy to put together. Take your time with the lid and do a dry run first, you should have no problems. 

Here are two pictures showing how I use binder clips to help me hold pieces 
together allowing enough dry time while I work on other pieces.

I used My Mind's Eye Trick or Treat Paper and Accessories Kit. 

As always, thanks for joining us today!

Sunflower Card and Print and Cut with Tracy

Sunflowers are a sure sign of Fall and right now I am seeing so many projects with them I decided I had to do a couple myself.

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and
for today's project , I decided to do the Sunflower Easel Card.  
The file comes from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine Collection
.JGW Sunflower Sunshine

I also wanted to try something different with the files ...

... So next I created a print and cut tag using one of the flowers from the easel card and the tag and words from the sunflower gift card.
It wasn't hard to do if you know how to set up Print then Cut in your machine's software.

So many fun things can happen when you combine and play around with files.

Teddy Bear Baby Card with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I made this card for my newest niece!
I used the Teddy Bi-Fold card file from SVG Attic's JGW Beary Sweet set.  The papers are from DCWV's Minty Lace stack.  I embellished the card with GMD Watermelon enamel dots, and Tickled Pink Trendy Twine.
Here is what the card looks like all opened up...
The inside is even decorated!  I love this file!  It can work well for a boy or a girl.
Here is a look at the set I used from SVG Attic:
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Snowman Box Card ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing a Snowman Box Card from JGW Made of Snow.  I made several of these little cuties.  I just love this card!

Snowman box card

These cards went together so quickly.  I inked the edges of the snowmen to give them a little more dimension.  I also modified mine a little bit.  I welded a "flap" to the front of my card instead of using the hearts.  If I can keep up with making my cards this year I should be able to send out handmade cards to everyone on my list!

Thank you for stopping by.

Skellington on a Stick

Hello - hope you're having an amazing Tuesday today :-) Mine's been pretty lazy so far but I guess soon I'll have to go stretch the old bones and go for a walk.
Talking about bones....I was so inspired by Annita Kristine Schøtt Pedersen's cute snowman on the SVG Attic Fanatics FB page yesterday, so I had to make one myself. I don't know how the idea popped into my head, but I realized that I wanted to make him into Jack Skellington from "The Nightmare before Christmas"
He is made from the Spring Spiral Snowman from the  JGW Made of Snow kit. All I had to alter was the face (found one in the Silhouette Design Store #156604), make the butterfly by welding two bats from the Silhouette Design Store (found here and here) and draw some white lines with a Sharpie.
I also cut some "hands" in white and added to the arms on both front and back and finally I made a button from the skeleton on the Mourner's Hat from JGW Raven Quest.
I used AC Cardstock in Black and White along with AC POW Glitter paper in Charcoal and a tiny bit of black floss for the button.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave that little special comment for me to read ;-)

Back to School

It feels like my children are the last ones on earth to go back to school (Wednesday is coming fast)! Hello all, I-team Sonja here to share with you a desk organizer I made from the 'G is for Gratitude' set. 
G is for Gratitude
I decided to keep it light, fun, and colorful. My kids each have a desk in their rooms and they are constantly asking me for supplies. Instead of keeping everything up on the fridge, I decided to build this organizer to help them have better access to supplies. 
 The ruler on the bottom drawer is from the 'Back to School' svg file set.
 The paper clip art is from the 'Back 2 School Cupcake Wrapper' set.
The chalkboard art on the smaller two drawers are print and cut files from the Silhouette Design Store.
 I was pleasantly pleased that everything I needed to be organized, fit into the organizer!
The drawers are great for holding extra small pieces such as eraser tops for pencils, paper clips, tacks, and so much more.
