So Long, Farewell......

Unfortunately every good thing must come to an end and being part of the SVG Attic Inspirational Team has definitely been a very good thing for me. I have really enjoyed making projects almost weekly (as I have a somewhat problem by controlling myself), coming up with new ways to put the files together or simply remaking some of the gorgeous files that flowed from the designers.

It is very sad to say goodbye to this, to my team mates - my "family" but I know we'll keep connected somehow and I'm thrilled to have learned that the files get to live on in the Silhouette Design Store.

I did make one final project - so I can drive off in style:

 I have wanted to make this truck for so long and just needed the right occasion - well it is now.

It's downsized by 50% so it's pretty small and it's make from AC Cardstock in Pine, Black, Vanilla and Latte along with Silver Metallic Paper from Tim Holtz.

The tiny nails are made from drops of Enamel Accent by Ranger and I used Distress Ink on all the edges and for the faux woodgrain on the rail.

I also added some gems on the front and back lights.

Instead of adding a pumpkin or tree in the back of the truck, I made some tiny suitcases (from the SDS Paris Voyage kit) These are downsized to 33% to fit the scale.

They are made of AC Cardstock in Robin's Egg, Cranberry, Denim and Chocolate and decorated with gold pearl paper. I used Enamel Accent as nails also on these.

I chose to use a vers from the Goodbye song in "The Sound of Music" because it just fits perfectly and put it in the suitcase tag.

Now I can drive towards the sunset and think about a happy time on the Inspirational Team - trying to figure out what to do now. I will still be making SVG Attic stuff - that is for sure!

I want to thank all of you for visiting the blog  - without you none of this would have happend. It's  such a thrill to know that people out there like the stuff you make and I hope that you will continue to follow along on my private blog: My Creative Hideout and/or on my FB page.

To my fellow team mates: I love you and we'll keep in touch. Thank you so much for giving me this chance to grow - because I really did during these two years I've been a part of the team.

See you all out there in cyperspace! So Long......

A Final Goodbye

Hello all! Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here. It is with a great sadness that I write my last post for SVG Attic/SnapDragon Snippets as they prepare to close their business. I have had the pleasure of being on their design team for 3 years now. I figured I would do a round up of 12 of my absolute top favorite projects (1. being my #1 favorite project) that I have done for SVG Attic for my final post. I had to narrow this list from 20 down to 12 so that my list wasn't too long and that was a hard process as there's so many great files to chose from. 

Click on each title to see original posts! 

This was my very first post as an official member of the Inspirational Team for SVG Attic. So of course, it needed to make the list.
A lot of work went into scaling down many of these files to fit this set so that is why I like it so much.
This is one of my all-time favorite projects. We have military, air force, and navy in our family so I try to pay tribute where I can.

I did a series of cottages. A haunted one, a fall one, and a winter one. The winter one was my favorite of the three. These cottages were a lot of work to piece together and I almost stopped after the first one!

This one was a fun project because I have a notion of taking several files and combining them into one solid set. It took just over 7 files to make this one.

It wouldn’t be a countdown of my favorites without this beauty. I did this for the husband’s and my 17th anniversary.

This project was a lot of paper and a lot of fun to make!

This book was a follow up to a Steampunk Top Hat I did on my personal blog, which I used many SVG Attic files to make the hat and accessories. 
Steampunk Top Hat

Apparently, I went through a rose gold phase! But this is one of my favorites not only for the deep blue colors with the rose gold, but that little hot air balloon was scaled down from 15” to 5” tall.

One thing I love to do is take a file and turn it into something completely different. I achieved that with this project.

This project was fun to make. I scaled the little boots way down to about 3” tall.

I have to say out of all the years working with this team, this is my absolute favorite project of all time. It took about a week, lots of details and paper, a few modifications but totally worth it.

I want to thank the owners, designers, I-team members, and fans for allowing me to be part of a great team. You can follow my work at any of the following links: 

All files in the SnapDragon Snippets store are 50% off until the end of the month....

We Are Linked

Hello and Happy Friday! 

I'm so ready for Spring, are you? So I decided to create something spring-like to have in my craft room. I wanted to create something that I could use as a decorative piece on my desk, as a reminder, something with a special sentiment. I think this checks off all the boxes.
The Dressmaker Easel Tag Card from the JGW Just Sew Kit is perfect for this project. 

I used Kraft 12 x 12 cardstock to create the base. 

This easel will sit perfectly on my desk without taking up too much space and brighten my days. 

As always, thanks for joining me.

Love Potion Bottle

Hello everyone.

Tracy here  and since it is the day before Valentines, I thought I would share something pretty.

Because the  Love Potion Bottle, reminds me of something that would sit on my grandmothers bureau, I chose to make it with some pretty pink floral paper.
To modernize it a little I added gold Stickers and epoxy elements.

My favorite part of the bottle is the stopper can actually be removed.

Now it can be filled with candy or another yummy treat.

This would make a great little Valentine gift for someone special, or it could be used as a center piece filled with paper flowers, or even an old fashion test tube.

Give this file a try.

I hope you all have a great Valentine's day and Thank you for joining me.

Valentine Heart Treats with Beth

Good morning to all my crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I wanted to make something for my boys to give to their teachers for the occasion.  The Heart 3D Shaped Mini Candy Box file was perfect!
I used papers from DCWV's Romantic Life stack to create them.  Jodi has a quick tutorial HERE if you have any questions on assembly, but these are very quick to make!
I used 3 sheets of paper, but since the paper is double sided, I was able to use the back side to accent if I desired!
My boys wrote their names on the tags and I tied them on with various colors of Trendy Twine.  I used Tacky Glue to assemble the hearts with a bit of foam tape behind the heart accent with hexagons on it.  I was able to fit 2-5 stick packs of gum in each of these for a little treat for the teachers.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

The Love Collection

Hello all. Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here with my latest project. My husband and I opted out of Valentine's Day this year. But that doesn't mean I couldn't make a few cards! I grabbed the latest Impossible Cards from SnapDragon Snippets store.

Regardless of the name, these cards are just about the easiest card you could ever hope to make, so I made all three. 

Once all my pieces were cut out, I ran them through my Xyron Creative Station® to get adhesive to the entire back of my cuts.
I wanted to add glitter to the angel wings, so I flipped them upside down before running them through the Xyron Creative Station®.
 All of my components aside from the card base had adhesive applied to the back in one swoop.
 Next I assembled the pieces on the backing
 With the wings, I simply grabbed some glitter and shook away.

 Once all the cards were assembled, I added some bling
 Final Project:

Faux Wood Luminaries with Snowflakes

I seriously can't think of a more beautiful thing than a snowflake. Perfect in every way and all different from each other.

This was my inspiration when making the new Snowflake 3D Luminary Tote Box from SVG Attic.

I made three - all with a different snowflake:

They are made in AC Cardstock Light Kraft and decorated with AC Dark Kraft and Chestnut. The handles are made from Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten.

I downsized them by 50%.

The one in the middle is the original one, the left snowflake is found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #36347 and the right snowflake is also from the Silhouette Design Store design ID #22593 - both a tiny bit altered.

These are tiny! I couldn't fit a normal size LED tealight into them, so I went with the color-shifting ones. It goes without saying that the handle was a challenge in this size...LOL.

Thanks for joining me today - please tell me what you think of these in a comment below.

Have a great Sunday!

Love a Good Boot!

Hi, and welcome everyone. 

Lisa from The Relativity of Paper.

Today I'm sharing a fun Valentine's Day card.
Using the Witches Boot Card from the Bewitched Boutique Kit. I love this boot because it can be used for so many things. I did a Birthday Version that you can see here

Every product I used is from my stash. The patterned paper is Martha Stewart paper from years ago, the red twine is, of course, Trendy Twine, the cute little fuzzies are Queen and Co. This card is super easy to cut and assemble. The word LOVE is from the Love Potion #9 Label.

s always, thanks for joining us!
