Did You Say Pumpkin Stacker Countdown?

Yes, my friends, I took the Pumpkin Stacker and turned it into a Baby Keepsake Stacker!

Front View

I had so much fun making this project. I really didn't know for sure if it would work out, but after looking through my stash, I found some packs of paper I bought years ago, and it was perfect!!

This really takes time and you need to be patient to put all the pieces together.  It takes quite a lot of paper, so be prepared to buy a whole pack of the color you want - (at least 25 pieces) you don't want to run out in the middle of the project.  

The time and effort I put into this project was well worth it because I know it will last for years to come.  For complete details on how to put it together, go here:  3D Pumpkin Stacker

To make it more girly, I added Prima flowers, and different color of buttons to go along with the colors of "knobs" for the drawers.

Thanks for visiting today, and happy crafting!

Happy Thanksgiving! with Beth

Happy Thanksgiving all!  What are you thankful for today?  I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband, three fun-loving boys and so many other things to be thankful for! 
I created this flourished pumpkin card from SVG Attic's Pilgrim's Prayer set.  LOVE it!  I added Orange Truffle and Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine to it and think it was the perfect embellishment for this card.
 That green paper is actually from a printed cork stack by DCWV.  What a neat texture to add to the fall feel of the card!
Because we are so thankful for all of YOU, our fans and customers, SVG Attic is having a sale right now!  So don't wait, head on over to our STORE and get the items on your wishlist :)

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Steam Punk Top Hat ~ with Courtney

When SVG Attic came out with the aviator goggles I new exactly what I was going to make with them.  A Steam Punk Top Hat.

I used 2 different kits for this project.

The aviator goggles are from the Ready for Take Off kit and the Top Hat is from the SDS Charmingly Green kit.  I just left off the buckle.

I searched through my stash to embellish with all sorts of interesting pieces.

I love how it turned out and I hope you do to.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a fabulously crafty day ! ♥

Advent Christmas Tree ~ with Cyndy

For this post I decided to tackle the JGW Tree Stack Box.  I have seen several in green and a beautiful white one in our Winter Blog Hop this past weekend.  I wondered how it would look if I used several different patterned papers for the drawers.

3d paper Christmas tree with drawers to count down to Christmas

I am very pleased with the result.  I used 15 sheets of paper for this.  I know this sounds like a lot but it didn't feel like it.  I used 6 patterned papers (one set of four drawers will fit on one 12x12 sheet), 4 sheets of red and 5 sheets of brown.  I even made use of the half tree wedges (these are so you can use a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper).  If you put a whole tree wedge in the center of a 12x12 page you can fit two half's upside down on either side.  This enabled me to cut the six wedges with only 3 sheets of paper!

I used little buttons instead of eyelets.  I also decided that I would put little red bows in the drawers.  When the tree is finished being decorated it is Christmas Eve!

I know this tree looks like a very daunting task to put together but it is a simple project.  The hardest thing about this project is that there are 24 little boxes and 24 little slots for the boxes to slide in.  So it takes time to put these 48 pieces together.  The result is well worth it.  It looks very complicated and you will get a lot of oohs and aahs over this one.  So far this is one of my favorite projects.

December 1st is right around the corner but there is still time to get an advent calendar finished!

I think this would look great in any color combination.  I would love to see your version of the tree or any other project you have made with our files on our facebook page!  Thank you for stopping by to see my project.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy :)

Winter Wonderland Bog Hop

Welcome to the SVG Attic-SnapDragon Snippets Winter Wonderland blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

This is your first stop of the hop in which you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and Snapdragon Snippets.  You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists for this season!

Here is the first project for the hop:

I used SVG Attic's Puffy Boxes files to create a wide variety of fun gift boxes!
The first one is a cupcake that used the round puffy box from Puffy Boxes.  I added the holly on the top from Winter Fun Photo Props.  The dots on the top are Stickles and I added rick-rack around the middle.  For the cupcake wrapper, I cut strips of paper and scored them every 1/4" then folded back and forth on the score lines and glued it around the box.
 The Santa box used the medium Puffy Box.  I cut a thin strip of white and black paper, then added a gold buckle that I cut from the Build A Snowman set.
 The reindeer Puffy Box used the short box and the reindeer from Santa's Little Helpers.
 This box also is the round puffy box from Puffy Boxes. It is just a simple gift box with pretty patterned paper and the tag is from 12 Days of Christmas.  This would be a fun and easy way to give someone a gift for each of the 12 days of Christmas, just used the tag that coordinates with the right day!
 Last, but not least, I made a snowman by stacking three of the short Puffy Boxes.  I added a hat from the Charmingly Green set, but didn't actually glue it down so the top white box can still be used.  The face and arms are from the Ice Princess Party set.  The nose is a tiny carrot from the Hop To It set.

Now how about some blog hop prizes??

Fall Table Center Piece

I hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather.  I know in some part of the country winter has already arrived, but here in El Paso, Texas, we are still having very nice days, a little bit of rain, and awesome sunsets.

For this post, I created a fall center piece using Canning Essentials Svg Kit.  I got the inspiration from a project by Tammy Tutterow, but instead of using real glass, I used overhead transparencies.  The paper I used was from the Paper Company.  It was a gold embossed cardstock.  To make the tall jar look vintage, I applied alcohol inks in Ginger, Caramel, and Butterscotch plus Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint to the transparency.  I added an electronic candle in the middle and dried vegetables to make it sturdy.  The addition of the light makes the "glass" glittery!

I cut out the leaves and acorns from the Harvest Blessings Card Kit.  To the ribbon I added the same colors but with the Distress Stains to match the colors on the glass.  I used fall colors of Distress Paints on the Leaves.  These are from the Fall Ensemble Kit.  The other leaves I die cut with three different Provo Craft dies.  I also added two push pins, a peacock feather and small white pearls.  The branches are also a Tim Holtz die cut.

The other two jars were made with transparencies and regular cardstock, one in brown and the other in a rust color.  I cut out the decorative toppers from fabric "cardstock" I had in my stash and natural twine.

So there you have it, a fall center piece to enjoy over and over again throughout the years.

Happy crafting!

Christmas Gift Box ~ with Angeline Choo

Hi. It's Angeline here.

Christmas is coming and what better way to start preparing than making some gift boxes? :)

Today, I've used the box from the "G is for Gratitude" kit and turned it into a Christmas gift box.

All you need is some pretty Christmas patterned paper (I'm using paper by Webster's Pages) and some red flowers :) 

I've also added red glitter buttons on the flowers for that extra festive mood.

Can you believe it's only about 6 weeks to go to Christmas? 

Do be on the lookout this week for our Winter Wonderland Blog Hop which is coming. There will be lots of INSPIRATIONS and PRIZES coming your way :)

Sewing Kit ~ with Courtney

My project today was so fun to make.  I had this idea in my head and really wanted to make it work.  I used quite a few files to accomplish the end result.

A sewing kit.  

For the notions box, I used the race track gift box from Day at the Races just leaving off the fencing.  I really wanted a handle so I just wrapped the paper around the wooden spools I bought at the local craft store and hot glued them on.  I glued ric rac to the top as well.  I love how it turned out.

For the thimble,  I used the Apple Core Gift Box from G is for Gratitude.  I did cut the bottom out twice and used it on the top to close it off.  

For the 3 button boxes, I used the Sweet Peppermint Candy Gift Box from Stocking Stuff and Button Design ID #25488 from Silhouette Online Store by SnapDragon Snippets for the tops.  

I hope you like my project.

Have a fabulously crafty day ! ♥

A Frozen Party ~ with Cyndy

Anyone who has a little girl right now knows that they want everything Frozen.  So it came as no surprise to me when my daughter, who is 4 yrs old told me she wants a Frozen party.

So I decided to change the Sweet Shop Party kit into a Snowball Shop by using elements from the SDS Ice Princess Party Pack and Cozy Christmas Captions.

Winter scene in blue with cupcake holder, popcorn cups and cracker boxes

I added a snowflake from the gift bag  to side of the shop.  To cut the design into the side panel place the snowflake where you want it, then ungroup the file.  Once you have the object ungrouped select the outer most circle and delete it.  Now when you cut the panel you will have the design cut into the piece not just a big circle.  I cut a snowflakes in a dark blue to place on the outside.  I liked the look of the snowflake turned a little so it wasn't exactly lined up.

Frozen Cupcake holder

I made a "build a snowman" treat bag using the place card.

Do you want to build a snowman activity - Marshmallows, pretzel sticks, candy corn

Finally, I made up some of the cracker boxes and popcorn cups for treats to complete my party favors.

Frozen popcorn treat boxes

Here is a list of the kits I used:

Sweet Shop Party Kit 
SDS Ice Princess Party Pack
Cozy Christmas Captions

The paper I used was Winter Fun by Carta Bella, it is available in digital format.  Until next time.
