Come Rain or Come Shine......

.....from the Soundtrack of the Danish Summer. It has pretty much been the crappiest summer in history, but as I see it, not everything has been bad. The temperature has been very pleasant with a minimum of hot humid days and the sun has been know to shine on occasion :-D
 
This weather inspired me to make this Birthday card to a girlfriend of mine whose Birthday is here in August. It could easily have been made for a spring Birthday but that's just my point - we have practically no seasons anymore. It's either Spring or Fall - no more Summer or Winter.
 

 

The cute card is designed by Cyndy Gustashaw and is part of her Box Cards 2 Kit.
 
I used AC Cardstock in Lipgloss, Cricket, Robin's Egg, Melon, Daffodil, Chestnut, Black and Bayou along with patterned paper from Doodlebug Design - Spring Time and Wood Grain patterned paper also from AC.
 
I inked all the edges with inkpads from Prima and used a white Silhouette Sketch Pen to write the sentiment (it says Congratulations in Danish) on the sign post.
 
Thanks for stopping by - hope you love the card as much as I do :-)

Pantry Party Gifts with Lisa


Hi and welcome, everyone. Lisa from The Relativity of Paper with you today and I'm sharing three fun gifts for a Pantry Party. Have you ever been to a Pantry Party? Pantry Parties can be a lot of fun and it's a great idea for anyone who is buying a new home, especially, young couples. 

Let's start with the CG Under the Sea box, just by changing the papers you can use this box for any occasion. I'm using it as a recipe box. One of the papers I'm using has recipe cards on it and they are a perfect for this box.The gift bag is the perfect size for a gift card, the card is so much fun and gorgeous. The bag and card are from the brand new JGW Apple Dandy Kit. Instead of adding the apples I used stickers from the Carta Bella Homemade with Love Paper Kit. I'm loving paper kits lately. All three projects are super simple to create and can be used for any occasion.



As always, thanks for joining us!

All About Apples


Looking forward to fall?
Tracy here from  the Idea Closet.
I love summer; I love the heat, I love all the activities in summer and I love staying up late and sleeping in.
I also enjoy fall, the cooler temperatures(its suppose to reach 95 degrees today) and getting back into a schedule.

To celebrate the end of summer, I created some fun apple projects from SVG Attic.
This is the new  JGW Apple Dandy Collection.



The first project is this Quilt Patch Apple card.
Its a great project to use scrap paper and fill the patch work square.
The apple is layered and placed  on the card with foam pop dots. 
Tie a little bow with twine around the stem.


Next up is the apple tote. This is a perfect little box to use as a neighbor gift or for a teacher.
I tied the twine around the apple again and then on the handle and the cello bag.
Fill the bag with some caramel squares or other fun little treat.


Last is the Apple Dandy Tag.
Tie the tag to a bag and you have a great non -sugar gift ; or combine the apple with the tote with caramel and you have a carameled apple kit.
Who wouldn't want to receive that?

Visit SVG Attic and see what you can do with this new kit.

Back To School Projects with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  With school starting tomorrow, of course I had to go with that theme for my projects!
 First up, I made the 16 count crayon box file from JGW Back 2 School which fit a delicious homemade peanut butter M&M cookie in a snack sized ziploc bag perfectly!  (The recipe for the cookies can be found HERE if you are interested!)  I tied Midnight Trendy Twine around the boxes.
 I made cards using coordinating paper from DCWV's  Grade School stack.  The two pencil cards are for my older boys who will be going into 2nd and 5th grade.  That file is also from JGW Back 2 School.  I added pink enamel dots from GMD Beach Party dots.  The panel I wrote on is actually the negative cuts from the window opening on the crayon boxes.
 My little guy is going into Jr. Kindergarten this year during the afternoons, so I made a different card for him.  The file for the apple card is from SDS Gearing Up 4 School.  This card has a bow of Midnight Trendy Twine and enamel dots from GMD Watermelon colors.
Looking for more back to school files?  Check out THIS LINK at SVG Attic!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Mourners Hat ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing one of my favorite files from SVG Attic - the Mourner's Hat from JGW Raven Quest.  I just love how this file comes together.  It's not to hard and the result is stunning.

3d Paper Mourner's hat

I used some Mod Podge on my hat to help protect it and I love the result!

It took a little bit of work to get the flower looking like I wanted but I am please with the end result.  I painted it with some colored glitter glue.  I think I will be using more of this stuff!

Thank you for stopping by.

Carousel Dreams

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with a few projects from one of the newest sets, Carousel Dreams. When I first saw this set, I knew I had to do the gift bag, 3D horse, and one of the cards! Cyndy did an excellent job designing this set.
CG Carousel Dreams
When I began planning this project, all I knew was that I wanted to use some rose gold paper. Which I just happened to have ONE sheet left from my Rose Quartz stack courtesy of DCWVinc. 
If I had a full stack of just this rose gold paper, I would be a happy crafter! But since I only had one sheet left, I had to be selective on what detailed parts I could use the rose for. 
 For the horses, I decided to go with a cream/tan/brown scheme.
 I placed some clear vellum on the back of the bag so that when I use it, nothing falls out of it!
 I used the same papers for all three projects to keep within the theme.
The one thing about photographing the rose gold is that different angles show a different color. Dark, light, just right.
The light pink blanket bounces the light off the bottom of the bag, yet the top is
darker!
I think out of the whole set, the 3D horse is my favorite. But maybe the bag as well, no I really like the card as well.

 I just love this box card!
 Plus it lies down flat for shipping!

Materials Used: 

DCWV 'Rose Quartz' stack
SVG Attic 'CG Carousel Dreams' set
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio-designer edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Batty for Halloween

....yup you know it's me :-D It is my favorite Holiday of the year - bigger than Christmas. So I have to start early if I have to make it in time with all the new decorations to make. And today I also celebrate being a new Team Member on the SVG Attic Inspirations Team <3

This time I want to show you the two adorable Bats on Stands designed by Jodi G. Warner for SVG Attic (get them here) as part of an amazing Halloween collection JGW Night Enchantments:

For this projects I used lots of Black AC Cardstock and a little Wine and Leaf. I also used Graphic 45's "An Erie Tale" papers and black glitter paper (for the swirly parts of the bats) I inked all the edges of the black cardstock with a grey inkpad and used a dark brown inkpad for the patterned paper. I decided to make the bats a tad more scary by embellishing with some Halloween charms and adornments.


I really loved how easy these were to assemble. I originally intended to make only one of the bats but loved it so much, I had to make the other one too :-D
Here are some more pictures of the project:




I am really excited to be on the SVG Attic Team and look forward to making lots fun stuff in the future since they have all these amazing files to play with <3
Thanks for stopping by :-)

Sail Away with Lisa

Hi and welcome everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper and today I'm sharing a fun pirate themed card with you. My first thought was this would be a great hand-delivered invitation for a small pirate themed birthday party.
Again, I let my paper inspire me with this. The Double Diamond card from the JGW Welcome to BOO-Ville is so much fun and worked perfectly with the SDS Pirate Ship


Here's the card opened up and you can see how this would be a lot of fun for that pirate themed party with a treasure hunt. 


You can find all the details on my blog, The Relativity of Paper.

As always, thanks for joining us!

Memory Book with Tracy

A couple of weeks ago I shared a Memory box I created for the SVG Attic Design Team.  
Tracy here and today I want to show you the beautiful Memory Spiral Bound book I made to go with it.


The spiral bound book is part of the JGW Build A Box collection.  The book fits inside the box perfectly and the two together make a great gift!

JGW Build a Box

A 6 mm spiral is used to bind the book and can be purchased at FedEx or found here in bulk.



For the outside of the book I used the Memories layered words and created one more layer to give it lots of dimension

Because I loved the lock on the box so much I decided to add the Victorian Key to the front of  the book

.

I cut the Eyelet Lace from matching cardstock, ran some twine through it and placed it on the cover with foam pop dots.

To finish the front cover,  I cut one more of the Dogwood flower clusters and added it to the Eyelet lace.

For the inside of the book, I cut squares and mats to fit inside.  These can be used as photo mats or journaling squares.

I was able to put 8 pages, decorated front and back into the spirals.


The back of the book is very simple and cut from the striped paper.  Love the colors and simplicity of it.


So pleased with the way this turned out.

Here is a photo of the book and the box together.  
In a couple of weeks we are going to Maine and I can't wait to fill both my box and book with  , keepsakes, photos and memories!
You can check out both projects on my blog
