Fall Fun

Hello - so glad to see you again! Hope you're having an awesome Fall Sunday.

I've been having fun with various fall projects lately and two of them, I'll show you right here. There are lots to choose from in the SVG Attic catalog and it's hard to limit yourself to just a few (just look at me! ) 

First of is the cute Scarecrow with Hay Bale Stand from the JGW Fall Ensemble kit:

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Coffee, Kale, Bubblegum, Rouge, Butterscotch, Melon, Apricot, Leaf, Latte, Black and Surf along with patterned paper from Echo Park Paper's collection "A Perfect Autumn." All edges are inked with Distress Ink from Ranger in matching colors.
So easy and straight forward to make and if you do not glue the stick inside the Hay Bale, it's very easy for storage. Isn't he adorable?

Next I made the 3D Acorn from the JGW Harvest Blessing kit:

This guy is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel, Coffee, Chestnut, Apricot and Leaf along with the patterned paper from Echo Park. I used a dotted embossing folder on the lid panels to match the bubbly pattern and a leaf vein embossing folder on the large oak leaf. All edges are also inked with the Distress Ink.

Then I tied some raffia around the stem for a little extra.

As I'm going to use this as decor in my living room along with the Scarecrow, I didn't need it to be a box, so I glued it shut.

It just doesn't get more fall-like than this, right?

Creepy Crawlies with Lisa

Happy Friday and welcome back, everyone! 

Lisa from The Relativity of Paper bringing you a few harmless 
Creepy Crawlies! 

I feel like I am always making something for others but rarely make things for myself. Does anyone else feel this way? So, I decided to create a few fun Halloween decorations for my craft room. I have a few ceramics sitting around that I store on a bottom shelf, out of view, during the year and most years I decorate with my store-bought decorations but this year I refuse to bring decorations into my home until the renovations are completed and this brings us back to the Creepy Crawlies! 

I love Halloween and knew I wanted a few decorations in my craft room since I'll be spending a lot of time in there this month. I love the way the banner turned out and decided to add a few spiders crawling across the canvas. 

To create the banner you will need the Web Semi Circle Overlay and Flourished Spider Card files. You will only be using the orange background and spider from the Flourished Spider card.
Resize the webs to fit your needs. I cut two sizes, alternating between the two. I cut the Flourished Spider the same size for the whole banner. Once I had all my pieces cut I ran Trendy Twine Gray Licorice through the web. To secure the Flourished Spider I used 3D mounting foam and adhered it over the Trendy Twine to secure it in place, too. 

The spiders can be found in the Silhouette Design Store - Design ID #154108. They are the same spiders in the center of the Flourished Spider. I added 3D mounting foam to the back of them to stick to the canvas.  I used Black and Orange cardstock from my stash to create my Creepy Crawlies. 

As always, thanks for joining us!

The Lone Rooster

Hello - I hope you're having a nice Thursday today.

I'm just popping in to show you the awesome Rooster 3D Large Figure that I made some days ago. He is just perfect for fall and I found him very intriguing so I just had to make him.

I also had an ulterior motive for making him - it was my next door neighbors Birthday and she and her husband has a Chicken Coop and lucky for us next door - no rooster. Not that I go around the whole town and give everybody presents, but I wanted her to have him, just like saying: Please let him be the Lone Rooster in the Coop.

Here he is:
He is made from AC Cardstock in Clay, Mustard, Latte, Coffee and Cranberry and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45's "French Country" and some Swiss Dot Bazzill cardstock.

I inked all the edges with Distress Ink from Ranger and dotted his eyes with a White Sharpie.

He is surprisingly easy to assemble and stands well on his own. 

I really hope my neighbor likes him and gets my little joke.

Thanks for visiting today - hope you like the Lone Rooster.

Dracula Peeking Cascade Card

It's not to early to start on your Halloween projects.
Today I have this fun cascade card for SVG Attic.

I love everything about this card
It's 3 dimensional, folds up flat and uses scraps of your favorite printed paper.
With Jodi's instructions, it also goes together very quickly.

I love Drac's layered face as he is peeking over the fence.
The haunted house is also pretty cool.

This Card will definitely get you in the Halloween mood.

File is Dracula Peeking Cascade Card from SVG Attic
Paper is from Echo Park

Pumpkin Treats with Beth

Hello my crafty friends!  Happy Monday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with these cute pumpkin treats!  I decided to create these to welcome in the fall season.
The file I used is from JGW Autumn Aire.  You can find the tutorial for assemble HERE.  I cut them out of papers from DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack and assembled them with Scotch tacky glue.  I chose to add a Ghirardelli chocolate inside and embellished with a bow of Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  These will be perfect to give to my boys for a fall treat!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sweet Dreams

Hello and Happy Sunday to you - thanks for joining me today.

Let's talk sleep! Do you sleep enough? Do you sleep well? Ha ha ha ok....getting to the point:

I've always loved the old legend of the Dream Catcher - that if hung in a window in the bedroom, it would sort the good dreams from the bad and only let the good dreams through.

Not that I've been having nightmares, I just thought it was time for such a pretty ornament in our bedroom window, so I jump to the chance of making one.

I used the Indian Dream Catcher and cut the ornament piece 8 times, stacked and glued them together for a stronger ornament. 

Then I altered the feather piece slightly to make room for a hole for the raffia to go through, so I could tie them onto the ornament.

Finally I added some pearls and gems as decoration and voila - done in no time!

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Woodgrain patterned AC Cardstock in Chestnut and patterned paper from DCWV "Mercury Glass Paper" and "Wood, Marble and Brass" from Recollections.

Now no bad dreams are to be dreamt and I look forward to a nice long nap....LOL

Thanks for visiting today.

Poinsettia Ornament ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I used the Poinsettia 3D Topper from JGW Christmas Botanical to make these beautiful ornaments.  The paper is Maja Designs.  This is beautiful paper from Sweden. 

I decided to go with some different colors with these ornaments.  The blue one is my favorite.  I made these smaller than the original size.  The base of the ornament is about 5" wide.  Thank you for stopping today.

Looky Looky Fishy

Looky Looky Fishy!  I used Grab the Bait Kit to create this card.  So sit back and enjoy the details. Thank you.

This card was a labor of love! I cut the school of fish out 10 times. I layered them to create an area to have the iridescent sequins.

I used Doodlebug Designs cardstock to put this card together.

I do remember how much work shaker cards are but love the outcome.  Hope you do as well!

Fall Shakers

Hiya and happy Sunday :-)

Fall is here! Might not feel like it in some parts of the world, but the calendar says so. Soon the leaves will be dropping every where but first they'll turn with magnificent colors - Oh I can't wait!

To bring you in the mood, I made two cards. They were originally flat cards but I turned them into shakers. Just can't help that urge to make it a bit more challenging.

You'll find both cards in the JGW Harvest Wishes kit and the first one I played with, is the 3 Vintage Pumpkin Card:

For this card, I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Butterscotch, Apricot and Rouge along with patterned paper from Carta Bella's Collection "Hello Fall"

It is very easy to make such a card into a shaker card if you own a Silhouette Cameo. You simply undo compound path on the pumpkins and make a internal offset of those shapes. You cut these shapes 5-6 times and layer them and glue this shape unto the back piece. Then you take your first made shapes and cut them in acetate. You layer the original pumpkin piece onto the acetate and glue it down. Now you find the glitter and confetti you want to use in the shaker and gently put it into the raised shape and close the pumpkin by gluing the top piece with the acetate onto the raised shape. Voila! 

I sure hope I made sense there!

Next I made (with the exact same procedure) the Leaf Flake Card:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Leaf, Apricot and Rouge along with the patterned paper from Carta Bella. The top panel of the card is cut in Rose Gold Foil Sticker paper (grrrr…..doesn't show well on the picture) and for both cards I used various glitters and glass beads from my stash along with confetti from Nuvo.

Hope you enjoyed my post today - Fall isn't over yet and neither am I, so look forward to more Fall projects from me.

Halloween Fun

Happy Friday! Lisa here from The Relativity of Paper bringing you a few Halloween projects from the JGW Halloween Soiree Collection

 I dressed the BOO up a little bit with Silver Gilding Flakes. I use spray adhesive to add gilding flakes, it works like a treat. I added 3D mounting foam to the back of each letter. I love that I went with a black and white theme. That seems to be the thing in my house right now. I added a piece of vellum to each box. 

Earlier this year I ordered the new Echo Park Paper Kits - Bewitched Collection. I used it for all the projects shown in this post. The easel card is a perfect card base for adding your own embellishments, this card base is a must-have in my book. 

I used the easel card and resized the mat that's included in the file.  The easel card is a perfect card base for adding your own embellishments, this card base is a must-have in my book. 

As always, thanks for joining us!

Perfect Pumpkin Projects

I don't really love fall. 
Here in Salt Lake, it seams like we get 5 days of fall and then winter hits!

But I do love Pumpkin!

So today for SVG Attic I created 2 projects featuring those beautiful pumpkins.

The first project is the Folk Art Pumpkin Patchwork card.

This is such a pretty card. 
If you love quilts or patchwork, Jodi has some beautiful quilt blocks and patchwork images.


The Pumpkin Block 3D Box, is another fun and easy file.
I made mine a little bit smaller and then distressed the edges.

The best part of this project is its made up of three smaller boxes.
The boxes can be filled with small treats or  gift cards.
Tie the boxes together and give as a gift to someone special.

I hope you enjoy these pumpkin projects as much as I have.
Thank you for joining me today.
