Patriotic Top Hat with Beth

Hello, this is Beth from Beth's Beauties back with another design team project for SVG Attic!  For this project I decided to go with a vintage Americana feel and made a patriotic top hat.  For the hat I used the mad hatter hat from the Mad Tea Party SVG kit.  Isn't it so fun?
To embellish the side, I made the star rosette from the Vintage Patriotic Cupcake Wrapper SVG collection and added some rumpled ribbon, burlap, a button and a couple sprays of decorative stars.
I used white and red rumpled ribbon to twist all around the base of the top hat to finish it off.
To give you an idea of the size of this hat cut out at the original file size, and to kick the cuteness up even more, here is a picture of my three year old playing with it :)  All of the papers I used for this hat are from the Vintage Nation stack by the Paper Studio.
This hat matches the current free gift at SVG Attic!  It is called Vintage Nation and is PERFECT for patriotic decorations.  To get this set free, add $9.98 to your cart, then add this set.  Use coupon code FREE at checkout and it will deduct the price of this set from your total!
BUT WAIT!  It gets even better!  This week SVG Attic is having a 35% off sale.  Every single SVG set has a reduced price plus you can get the free gift.  Pretty hard to resist, isn't it?  LOL!  If you make some crafty goodies with the SVG files you purchase, I would love to see them!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Celebrating the 4th of July

Jearise here today and I love decorating for all the holidays and that includes the 4th of July. The newest set Vintage Nation and the Vintage Patriotic Cupcake Wrapper  from SVG Attic were the perfect sets to combine to get my decorating under way. 

This is the star and rosettes from the Vintage Nation set and the middle adornments are from the Vintage Patriotic Cupcake Wrapper set.

Both the box and the rocket lantern are from the Vintage Nation set. I had fun adding the wire and stars that come out of the middle of the rocket and the rocket has a special surprise - it holds a tea light so it glows at night.

Check out these two sets and all the wonderful cutting files at SVG Attic and right now there is a sale going on where you can get 35% off your order by using the code: FREE at checkout.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Ribbon Father's Day Card with Beth

Hi everyone!  This is Beth from Beth's Beauties.  With tomorrow being Father's Day, I decided to make one last card for the occasion.  This one is for my boys to give to my husband!  My oldest son picked out the design he wanted me to cut out :)

The SVG files for this card are from the Day At The Races collection at SVG Attic.
It was simple and straight forward to cut out and assemble.  In fact, it took longer to pick out the papers we wanted to use.  I decided on the Industrial Chic stack by DCWV which has a great vintage feel to it.
Instead of the horse head that was with this card file, I added a "#1" to make it work for Father's Day.
I fussy cut a tag out of the paper stack and used brown ribbon to fasten it to the card.  The final touch was using my round 14 Epiphany Crafts shape tool and more of the DCWV designer paper to create the dad epoxy circles.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Quick and Clean Graduation Card by Jearise

June is the month for graduation and graduation parties and SVG Attic has some quick, cute and easy graduation cards to make.

I had a graduation to go to this past week and whipped up this card on the fly. I used the school colors and since it was for a boy, I decided to not add all the extra bling. I love the clean lines of this STEP CARD.

I used the STEP CARD svg cutting file for the card base.

The year, graduation caps, diploma and "Way to Go" all come from the HATS OFF svg cutting file.

Anniversary Heart Box

Hello all!  This is Beth from Beth's Beauties and I am excited to announce that I have been chosen to be on the SVG Attic design team!  I love the files that they have!  There are so many diverse themes that you are sure to find something that you can use.  I make a lot of cards, but I also LOVE creating 3D paper items as well.  It is so fun seeing the item take shape and the finished product is so rewarding.

For my first design team project, I made an anniversary heart box for my husband.  We recently celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary!   This box is a wonderful reminder of our wedding colors and flowers.
The base of the heart box was made using the Heart Shaped Box collection from SVG Attic.  I kept the box simple by using solid colored cardstock, then added a vellum trim from Erin's Scalloped Trims around the top edge.
Next is the part that I just adore...those roses on top!  Seriously, I think they are the most gorgeous paper roses I have seen!  I cut them using the rose file from the Be Mine collection using double sided K&Company paper.  A perfect match of my favorite flower with my favorite color :)  For the leaves on the roses I used the apple leaves from the Fall Harvest Favor Boxes kit. I used brown chalk around the leaf edges, then creased them down the middle to make them look more realistic.  For the final touch, I added some pearls that were on a wired strand for a subtle bling.
But wait...there is more!  I also decorated the inside of the lid!  I added a cream heart layer, stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment, then added the rose and leaves.  An unexpected surprise when the box is opened :)  I just loved the end result and I think it would work beautifully for a wedding, bridal shower, anniversary, Valentine's day, birthday or even a just because gift.  There are so many possibilities for this box.
Ok...I just have to share one more picture of those amazing roses with you.  They have such a refreshing summer feel to them.  You know you like them too ;)

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Teacher's Thank You Gifts

Jearise here today to show you how I am saying thank you to the teachers for the awesome job they have done this year with my children.

As you all know the end of the school year is here. Some schools are already out but some have a week or two to go and that's enough time to get your files from SVG Attic and to make a special gift to say "Thank You" to your child's teacher.

I've been busy combining some of the old with the new for my projects this month. Yes, you read that right - projects (plural). I have three things I put together using a few of the wonderful files from SVG Attic.

These two projects I did for my daughter's second grade teacher. She is a nature lover and a healthy eater so I decided to do something healthy to say thank you.

I made this bag using the new AGED TO PERFECTION file. There is a bag in the set and I turned it into a bag that I am going to fill with fruit for the teacher. I used books for the picture to give you an idea of how big this bag is. It's perfect for holding bigger gifts.

I used the Back to School file for the book worm and  pencils border. You have to admit that little worm is adorable. I also used the Aged to Perfection set for the oval my cute little worm is sitting in. You could add a handle to this bag if you so desired it's that versatile.

I also added a worm to each side of the bag. Here are closeups of the pencils and worms.
Now along with my bag I decide to make a special thank you card. I used the set G is for Gratitude to make this card.

I added flowers from the set 3D Spring Flowers and a swirl from the Give a Hoot collection. I left the inside blank and my daughter is going to write a special message to her teacher.

For my son's teacher, I decided to go with a gift card for ice cream and in Austin the place to go for ice cream is Amie's. I still have to get over there to get the gift card but the gift card box is ready to go thanks to the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes. These boxes just aren't for Christmas. You can use them for any special occasion. 

I added flowers from the 3D Spring Flower collection and a swirl from the Give a Hoot set. I wanted this gift card box and my thank you card to be similar so I used the same papers and colors. I just love the rosette in the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set.

I added a circle saying and another flower to the inside of the gift card box.
Here you can see how the gift card will fit in the box. I used a different card for this now.

I hope I've inspired you today. There are so many great files to play with and mix and match over at SVG Attic that you will never run out of ideas!
