Little Box of Valentine's Love by Jearise

I made this simple little square box for Valentine's Day but the papers I used and the flowers I made and attached are what make it so special.

The carnations on top of this box are from the 3D Spring Flowers set from SVG Attic. I just love, love, love this set and it is one of my go to sets for flowers. I use a lot of paper flowers on my projects.

As you can see, I made a small carnation and only used a few of the layers and added a rhinestone in the middle and now it looks like a totally different flower.

I cut out the flowers and then spritzed them so it gave them a prettier look and made it easier to manipulate them.

Stop by and check out our newest set: Sweet Shop Party and all the great cutting files at SVG Attic.

Fudge Filled Thank You Treat with Jearise

I got out my SVG Attic files to make a thank you set full of sweetness and thank you's.

First came the homemade fudge...which I wrapped in Seran wrap.
Then came the box from the SVG Attic set Cookies for Santa.
Third came the snowmen tags to attach to the boxes from the set Build A Snowman SVG Collection.  I made shadows for the snow people. I had two types of fudge so I wrote on the tags which was which type.

Fourth, came the card that made a complete set and also was from the Build A Snowman SVG Collection. I just used my program to do some welding to make it into a card.

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the cutest new set from SVG Attic called Sweet Shop Party.

Valentine Heart Basket with Beth

I love everything about Valentine's Day, from the colors to the candy to the meaning behind it all.  With that being said, I sometimes get a bit carried away when making Valentine projects and this one is no exception. Truthfully, with three boys in the house, there probably should be some unwritten law against something this frilly LOL!

First I made the adorable Heart Basket from SVG Attic's Heart Shaped Box set.  The patterned paper I used was from The Paper Studio's You + Me cardstock stack.
Here is a side glance.
This is a close up of the handle.  I cut the cardstock handle and then braided red, lt. pink and white rumpled ribbon along it.  At the base of the handle I tied a bow on each side using the red and white ribbon.  Along each side of the handle I also applied eyelet scalloped trim from Erin's Scalloped Trims.  The trim was cut out of vellum.
I also added the same trim in vellum all the way around the top of the basket.
Last, but not least, I made candy treat favors from the Fun Favors collection to place in the basket.  I sized them to 5.5" wide and they fit perfectly in the basket.  At this size, they each hold two Hershey's kisses.
I had so much fun making this and I hope you enjoyed it as well!

Guess what?   SVG Attic has just released a new set!  It is called Sweet Shop Party and I am totally loving it!  Through January 26, 2014, this collection is 50% off, so if you love it like I do, don't hesitate to get it because it will go back to regular price after that :)
Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Ice Cream Parlour Card with Beth

This card was totally inspired by a 6x6 paper pad that I recently purchased from The Paper Parade.  It is Authentique's Sweetness.  I fell in love with this paper and have been wanting to make something with it ever since it came into my hot little hands :)
 All of the die cuts on this card are from SVG Attic.  The double scoop ice cream cone is from Ethan's Cool Treats and I cut it at the imported size.  The scalloped tag behind it is from the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set.  Once I imported the tag into my software, I resized it to 4" tall, keeping the proportions the same.  I inked the edges of the die cuts using brown chalk ink.  I embossed the cone using an argyle embossing folder to make it look like a real waffle cone.  I used glossy accents on the Ice cream to add some shine and dimension.  I also added dots of liquid pearls in the scallops to compliment the bow.
 Here is a close up of the bottom of the card.  I used white satin ribbon to make the bow.  The sentiment is just fussy cut from one of the papers in this stack.  Last, but not least, I added three white buttons to the bottom left.  I wanted to fill in that blank space.  I guess I have a hard time keeping things simple LOL!
If you are wanting to get some of the SVG files that I used, NOW is the time to get them!  SVG Attic is currently having a $1 sale.  All sets are only $ awesome is that?
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Winter Thank You Card with Beth

Happy New Year!  This card is perfect for giving to someone who gave you an extra special gift this holiday season.  It is made using SVG files from SVG Attic.  The card itself and the Thank You caption is from the G is for Gratitude kit.  I added rhinestones to the top of the H and N to set them apart from the rest of the letters.  I also added a tiny bow to the front just to add a little something extra.
The snowflakes I added to the side are from the All The Trimmings set (I used the middle layer of the snowflake) and the sizes I cut then are as follows:  For the top snowflake, the white layer is 2.2" tall and the silver layer is 1.6" tall.  The center snowflake is cut at 1.2" tall.  The white layer on the bottom one is cut at 1.5" and the silver layer is 1.16" tall.  I popped the large snowflake up with foam tape and added a rhinestone to the center of each snowflake.  I guess I am a girl that loves sparkles :)  
For the inside of the card, I added a layer of white cardstock for writing on that was cut out using the same cutting file as the front patterned paper panel.  You can see a glimpse of it in the picture above.

Here is a close up of the large snowflake.  Isn't that glitter paper gorgeous?  It is from the Glitzy Glitter cardstock stack by DCWV.  The best cut wonderfully with my Cameo!  Yes, you read that right.  I was so lucky to receive a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and I am super excited to experiment and learn all about it!
Just a reminder, all the files are 50% off at SVG Attic, so now is a great time to purchase those sets that are on your wishlist!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
