Happy Haunts with Lisa

Happy Friday! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper, here, with you. I'm sharing a Cabana Milk Carton for Halloween candy today. I love the files at SVG Attic because you can use them in so many different ways, makes crafting fun.

This Milk Carton from the CG Under the Sea Kit is super easy to assemble with minimal cutting, always a good thing when you are in a hurry. 

I used Echo Park Paper Co. Halloween Town Paper Kit for my project. The milk carton would a great Halloween party favor.

Four Drawer Box with Tracy

Tracy with the Idea Closet and I am loving all of these boxes on SVG Attic.
Today for my blog post I made the 4 drawer box from the JGW Bloom collection.

The four drawers are perfect for holding jewelry, craft supplies, treats or any number of small gifts.

This box has so many possibility.

The paper is from Tim Holtz, and I love the beautiful colors.

To finish the box, I added gold brads to the drawer pulls and four stained wooden knobs as feet. 

I am so very happy with how this box turned out.

Halloween Trio Cards with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today!  For this post, I decided to create three Halloween trio cards from the JGW Welcome to Boo-Ville set.
These cards were all so simple to assemble.  The hardest part for me was deciding on what papers to use!  I ended up using DCWV's Fall and Halloween Basics stack for the card bases and their Eek-a-Boo 6x6 stack for the strips of paper.
These cards can be as simple or elaborate as you want!  I kept them pretty simple, adding only a sentiment from CDD Ghostly Greetings stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The bat card has Orange Licorice Trendy Twine on it.
I added enamel dots to the first two cards and black sequins to the third to change it up a bit.

Here is a look at the set I used from SVG Attic:
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Aged to Perfection

Hello - Helle here with a small post, just to show you a gift I made for my girlfriend and her husband.
She turnes 50 and he turned 60 this fall and we were invited to celebrate both.
So what do you make for such a couple? Well SVG Attic had the answer:

The Aged to Perfection kit contains among others this Wine Cask Gift Box and Vintage Card that I found to be perfect for the occasion.
I made the barrel in AC Cardstock and patterned paper from Simple Stories and added Jodi's grapes from the JGW Communion of Faith kit. Those grapes are a bit time consuming but once you get the idea of how they go together, it's just easy peasy.
The Vintage Card is also made from AC Cardstock and Simple Stories patterned paper. I quadrupled the numbers and added some rosegold foil for some shine. I also dotted the letters and stars with a white Sharpie.

The gift was money and I added a small pouch inside the card for them. Then I took some shredded wood and filled up the barrel along with some candies

And they loved it :-)
Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to write me a little something on your way out :-)

National Coffee Day

Let's face it, without coffee my world doesn't go round and round again! When I saw that National Coffee Day was September 19th, I decided to design something to give as a gift set.

Coffee is my most favorite thing to look forward to every morning. That first burst of hotness on the taste buds, nothing like it. So why not share it with someone else?!
To begin with this gift set, I found this great 3D Secretary Box from SVG Attic's 'JGW Mothers Moments' set.

I immediately knew that the back compartment would be a great place for cards to be stored. I knew that I wanted to simulate coffee stains, however I don't have that stamp so I had to improvise.
 To start with, I wanted a darker coffee mix and a lighter one just for contrast
 For the darker, I just let the coffee pod soak a bit longer in hot water
 Next I took a shot glass (since I planned to use these as accents for the cards, I needed a smaller bottom than a regular sized coffee cup)
 Dip and stamp
 I did one 12 x 12 white sheet and one 8.5 x 11 just in case I wanted to print and cut on it.
I set these aside and got to work on the base and drawer insert for the main project. *******Sugar Tip*******the paper does wilt a bit (thin cardstock), all I did to flatten it was run a hot iron over it. Works like a charm!
This insert is not included in the project. But it is simple enough to make. I just took the measurements of the inside of the drawer, added enough to bend flaps down for adhering to the inside of the box, and added five circles to house the pods.

Tim Holtz idea-ology hardware brings out the best on this gift set. Gives any project a bit of a boost. 
The hidden areas of this box created the perfect opportunity for me to fill it with little gifts and goodies.

This project smelled great the entire time I was cutting and gluing!

The six cards housed in the back are all different, but still share the same coffee cup from SVG Attic's 'SDS Coffee Break' set. 
 The coffee rings turned out good.
 Next I created nine tags to go into the hidden compartment. Each one is different

Creepy Candalabra

I can’t seem to get enough Halloween decor and my latest addition to my ever so growing collection, is the Creepy Candalabra from SVG Attic:

This gorgeous but spooky centerpiece is made from lots of AC Cardstock in Wine and Black. I made some black panels myself that wasn’t included in the original file as I wanted to put in tea lights and these panels made it much studier. I just love how you can see the Wine Cardstock under the black… really makes it pop
I think come Halloween, I will spray some spider webs onto the candalabra to make it even spookier and it will be the new table centerpiece for our Halloween Birthdays
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave me a small comment

Witch's Brew with Lisa

Welcome back and Happy Friday! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing two fun Halloween projects using the SDS Coffee Break

I love the Coffee Break Set because you can change it up for the holidays with fun pattern papers. 
It's very easy to put together. Take your time with the lid and do a dry run first, you should have no problems. 

Here are two pictures showing how I use binder clips to help me hold pieces 
together allowing enough dry time while I work on other pieces.

I used My Mind's Eye Trick or Treat Paper and Accessories Kit.
