Memory Box with Tracy

Looking for a great way to store keepsakes or souvenirs?

 Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today is my turn to post with SVG Attic,
 I am so excited to share a great project that is the perfect answer to this question.

Check out this beautiful Memory box.

It is created with the files from the JGW Build a Box collection
JGW Build a Box

There are a lot of options in the collection that make it possible to create all the details on the box.

The flowers are part of the collection and add the perfect touch.

Use Wood Doll Stands (found at Micheal's) to add feet to the box.
Paint them to match the paper.

Here is a side view.

The box has a magnetic closure, sturdy lid and bottom and lots of room to keep your pieces safe.

This project has lots of parts but if you follow Jodi's instructions here, it is pretty easy to understand.

I think I am addicted to these fun boxes and can't wait to make more.

Bee Hive Card with Beth

Hello crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties with you today sharing this bee hive card.
This card was solely inspired by some new papers I got!  The DCWV Watercolor Garden stack had these amazing bee inspired papers in it and I knew I had to make something with them, so this card was created!  The file I used from SVG Attic is from the JGW Blooming Card kit.
I distressed the cuts with various colors of Distress Inks to add more dimension to the card.  I kept it pretty simple, only adding a few sequins for embellishments.
Here is a look at the kit that I used:

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Bon Voyage

Summer months makes me want to travel! Hello all, I-team Sonja here with a Bon Voyage suitcase from the JGW Fashionably French set.
JGW Fashionably French
For my suitcase, I decided on DCWV's 'Preserved Flowers' stack for a soft white, cream, and tan effect. 
Then I decided that I needed to use some Tim Holtz accent pieces because, well I couldn't not use them!  
Adding the metal hinges, lock and key, as well as the bird and flowers just brings an extra element of texture which I am all about! 

Materials Used: 

DCWV 'Preserved Flowers' stack
SVG Attic 'JGW Fashionably French' set
Tim Holtz metal details
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studios-Designer Edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Cards For Dad

Ok so I know we are past Father's Day but really, you could give your dad a card anytime! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here to share with you these cards I made for my Dad and my Father in Love.  
The first card I used "Cards For Dad".  My dad is retired military so I thought it fitting to use Doodlebug Design's Yankee Doodle 12x12

This 2nd card I made for my Father in love. He always wears crazy ties so I thought this would be fun for him.  I used SDS "Love You Daddy"  For my Paper Choice I used Doodlebug Designs Flea Market 6x6 and 12x12 Flea Market Petite Prints.

Hope you enjoyed and will stop by again soon. Thank you!

Worlds Best Dad with Lisa

Happy Friday everyone and welcome. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a quick and simple gift card box. Wednesday was my Dad's birthday and I needed a quick gift card box that would hold not only a gift card but a few miniature Snickers underneath. Of course, JGW GONE FISHING KIT from SVG Attic has a great gift card box included. It was the perfect size for my gift card and eight miniature Snickers fit perfectly under the insert. 

To create this box I used my Silhouette Cameo and Photoplay's Family Ties. This box and those papers were meant to meet! That's all I can say. I didn't add the accent pieces to the sides of the box top because the paper is woodgrain and I love the way it looked. I did add the top accent piece using fun foam to add some dimension, wrapping the twine around the top accent and then adhering it to the box lid. Easy, peasy!

 As always, thanks for joining us!

Ice Cream Sundae

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic holiday yesterday.
Tracy here from the Idea Closet.

What is better after a long hot day then a day of relaxing and ice cream?
Today I have a project to help you relax.

This file is one I have wanted to make for a long time.  It almost looks good enough to eat.

Love the cherry that goes on the top; 
I even used it to make a tag to tie to the front of the Sundae.

The best part, is it can actually be filled with treats to share with someone special.

The file is part of the CG Fabulous 50's kit


The possibilities are endless with this one file.  I can't wait to make a lot more.

Patriotic Tussie Mussie with Beth

Hello everyone!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I have this patriotic Tussie Mussie just in time for the 4th of July tomorrow!
The Tussie Mussie (cone) file is from SVG Attic's JGW July 4th Block Party.  The rosette is part of that file, but I switched out the medallion on the front with the SDS Star Medallion.  It was resized to 2.5" to fit properly on the medallion.  All the papers are from The Paper Studio's Vintage Nation stack.
 See all the beautiful details around the top of the Tussie Mussie!
I filled it with various patriotic items I had in my craft room.  Silk flowers, star sprays and a painted flag heart.  I put floral foam and kraft shred in the cone before adding the decorations.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sunflower Box ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello, today I am sharing a beautiful Sunflower 3D Hex Box from the kit JGW Sunflower Sunshine by SVG Attic.  Everything in this kit is stunning.  I made the box as a gift for a friend of mine.  I know she will love it.

Sunflower Box

The box is surprisingly easy.  You just need some time to put all the petals together.  It was also the first time I have done a rosette.  I had my son help me hold it while I glued it down.

Sunflower Box

I used Graphic 45 - French Country.  It is out right now as a Deluxe Collectors Edition.

Thank you for stopping by.

Tent Cards

Hello all, I-team Sonja here. I needed to make some more elegant cards for a few people. After going through SVG Attic's website, I came across the tent cards file.

Now, this file doesn't just have four cards in it. It actually has three different sizes of cards with four different face shapes to each so all in all you get 12 card shapes as well as 12 matching envelopes with this file!

Because I needed something more elegant and less complicated than what I normally do with cards, I decided to go the embossing route.
These cards are great for creating 3D effects, however they still lie down flat for shipping.
I thought about doing a more 3D theme for each card, but I think the simplicity worked better for what I need them for.

Materials Used: 

DCWV Rose Quartz stack
SVG Attic 'Tent Cards' file
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studios-Designer Edition
Sizzix Big Shot
Darice embossing sleeves
Close to My Heart-Take Heart Occasions stamp set
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Uncle Sam

Good Morning! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here.  I just had to create Uncle Sam for you.  Uncle Sam is from JGW July 4th Block Party

I use pop dots to pop the hat brim, the eyes, and give added dimension to the star. 

I used Trendy Twine's Peppermint Icicle. I love the softness of the blue

I used Doodlebug's Yankee Doodle Paper for this.

I hope you enjoyed this. Thank you!

 As always, thanks for joining us!

July 4th with Lisa

Hi, everyone and welcome! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a fun idea using the JGW July 4th Block Party and JGW Sam's Hat Kits. I've been wanting to step outside my norm, try something different. I found this Chalk Board Easel stand at my local big box store and the wheels started turning. Of course, there was a chalk marker hanging next to it and I decided then I would try to stencil it because my penmanship is not the best. 
 I resized the July 4th from the JGW July 4th  Block Party Collection to fit the board and used a piece of white cardstock to create my stencil. Once the stencil was created it was just a matter of taping it down and using the chalk marker to create the sign. Honestly, this couldn't be any easier and I see a few more of these being made for Halloween and Christmas. 
 Next, I cut the stars from the JGW Sam's Hat Kit in all three sizes. I love that they are dimensional. Once I had them cut and "assembled" I attached them to a strip of paper so I could wrap fairy lights around it. 

I finished it off with a few die-cut circles just because it needed a little something else. 
So next time you are wanting one of those gorgeous chalkboard signs but dread the thought of writing on your beautiful clean chalkboard, make a stencil! 

 As always, thanks for joining us!

America "Wood" Blocks

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today is my turn to share on the SVG Attic.
If you are still looking for a fun Patriotic project I have the perfect one for you today.

These blocks look like wood blocks but they are 100% paper and so easy to do.

The file is from the JGW July 4th Block Party Kit and if you haven't seen it yet you need to check it out.

JGW July 4th Block Party

There are so many fun projects in this kit, I wasn't sure where to begin but my favorite is the America Blocks.

I cut all of my blocks from a brown cardstock and then inked them up a lot to give it a wood look.
To create the panels, just do an offset (silhouette) or a small square (Cricut) and glue to the front of each block.

Cut two copies of the letters.  Glue one to the front of the box and then layer the second letters with foam pop dots.

Add some twine and its all done.

Enjoy your beautiful "wood" blocks!

Sewing Framed Art with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I really was excited to make this project!  It is a vinyl saying with paper and lace accents in a frame.
The vinyl saying comes from the JGW Just Sew set.  I cut it out in black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and layered it on the patterned papers I chose from DCWV's Royal Gypsy stack.
I added navy lace hem facing around the bottom and used the thimble and diamond quilt block files from JGW Parlor Patchwork as well as the scissors file from JGW Just Sew to the left corner.  The finishing touch was a threaded needle that I wove into the lace.  I then placed it all into a 8.5x11" frame.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
