Elegance….

….the first word that popped into my head when I saw the new kit – Brunch Party – from SVGCuts. I especially fell in love with the Elegant Gown that Mary created. WOW. It just screams wedding or Confirmation (at least here in Denmark 😉 ) And it was Confirmation I had in mind when I made my version of the dress:

I used AC Cardstock in white for this and added some pink glitter paper to contrast. I used sequin ribbon as a belt and some cute crocheted flowers my Mom made me some time back 🙂 Finally I also added some white tulle. The embossing folder I used for the middle part of the dress is from Craft Concepts and is called “Tuscan Tiles”.

 

The gorgeous pink shade recur in the Gerbera flowers from Lia Griffith that I made to go with the dress:

I used AC cardstock in Taffy, Limeanade and Pine to create the flowers and several pieces of wire covered in floral tape for the stem. I just love how they came out! ❤

 

So here is a picture of the entire arrangement:

Wouldn’t is just be the perfect table decor for the wedding of your dreams or for the girl Confirmation? I would die to be able to wear a dress like that! 😀 I pictured it could be used as a center decoration or maybe one on each table as a flower vase.

Ribbons…..

….they always seem to be everywhere in the craft room….tangled up and scattered everywhere 😀 Unless you have one of those handy ribbon storage bags/boxes. I would have but I find them wayyy to expensive. So why not make your own????

I found this cute Button Box from the Seamstress kit from Birds SVGs

and one look at it and I knew this would be perfect for ribbon storage. I only had to make a divider to make 4 rooms in it and voila – perfection.

The ribbons are accessible through the holes in the lid.

I used AC Cardstock in Wine for the box and added an extra top ring layer in pink glitter paper for some sparkle.

The only thing left now is to make a ton of these for all my loose ribbons hiding around in my room 😉 And if you don’t want to use for ribbon, pop some cookies in and give it away to your crafty girlfriend 😉

This is my first project as Design Team Member at Birds SVGs. I’m so excited to be on her team and I’m looking forward to making lots of fun projects with her awesome files.

Sunday afternoon…

….the kids are in their room doing their homework – Dad is fixing things inside and outside the house. All is quiet. Can you imagine this amazing setting??? Yeah…me neither 😀 Usually this home is crazy circus with kids running in and out, screaming and yelling, parents running around doing chores and cleaning up after the kids….A circus! Just as in almost all normal homes 😀 LOL

My project today was originally meant as a gift for a girlfriend and I had it all planned differently in my head. But things just doesn’t work out the way I planned it. So I had to do it all differently. So instead of a present, I made this for my home:

dsc_0065

See this 6×6 Mini Marquee Frame by Jodi G. Warner (silhouette Design Store id# 158944) was originally designed to work with “Deco Lights teeny bulbs” by Darice. I can’t get these in Denmark so I had to make the holes somewhat larger and use “Marquee Love” Light Stand Kit (a string of lights with 24 bulbs) by Heidi Swapp and Multi colored bulbs also from Heidi Swapp. I recommend that you either adjust the small collar circles to size of the lights or leave them out. I also left off the Battery Housing Support Platform so the frame is able to hang on the wall. The quote is from the Silhouette Design Store ( design #143141) and I only changed out the word “house” with “circus” 😉 Then I colored some of the words, the cup and the wineglass and printed it. The entire frame is made from Black and White AC Cardstock.

So from now on, the truth is on the wall 😀 and I have to make another something for my girlfriend’s birthday 😉

My Cup Runneth Over

….with lots of gorgeous Spring flowers 😉

SVG Cuts has recently announced that they’re hosting a Spring Challenge and naturally I wanted to enter 🙂 So what to make? I had this idea about a cup with some flowers in it to begin with but it evolved into this:

dsc_0006

A levitating cup that pours out spring flowers onto a plate/saucer on a pedetal 🙂

I used multiple SVG Cuts files for this one: 3D Flowers SVG Kit (Daffodils), Cherry Blossoms Mini SVG Collection (twigs), Mom’s Garden Gifts SVG Kit (small yellow flowers), Spring Blossoms SVG Kit (Cherry blossoms), Tea For You and Me SVG Kit (Teacup, Saucer and Teaspoon) and Fairy Cottage SVG Kit (Pedestal/Cake stand and Butterfly)

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Dandelion, Peach, Spinach, Robin’s Egg, Melon, Olive, Latté, Butter and Chestnut. The patterend paper is Once Upon A Springtime by Graphic 45 and I used some yellow sprinkles from Doodlebug Design along with some small pink pearls from Mark Richards.

Now this darling project is a part of my Spring Decor in my living room, safe under “the Dome” 😉

Love is in the air….

….and with it comes weddings ❤ One of the biggest dreams of some little girls is to have a beautiful and romantic wedding and being one of the biggest, most important days of their lives, everything has to be perfect. Right down from the dress to the table settings and decor. And one of those things just got a lot easier 😉 Dreaming Tree just released their newest bundle All my Loving. Although it appears to be a Valentines Day bundle, its very easy to make it into a wedding theme instead – like I did here with the Valentine Centerpiece Luminary:

helle

I used AC cardstock in White and Vanilla along with Bazzill “White Wedding Pin Stripe” cardstock, POW glitter paper from AC in Caramel and “Gilded Lily” from Graphic 45. I decorated it with some white pearls and white flowers (from Prima) and some small yellow resin flowers from my stash. Finally I cut a long piece of white tulle and tied it around the battery operated candle, and decorated the bow with a small adhesive jewel piece. Wouldn’t this be wonderful as a centerpiece?

To match this gorgeous centerpiece I made the Valentine Gift Box

dsc_0023

I used the same materials as for the centerpiece but switched out the Vanilla cardstock with Caramel. I decorated the box with white tulle flowers instead of hearts to give it more of a wedding feel. The flower on top was much fun to assemble.

Hope my projects will give you inspiration to make your own versions whether it be Valentine, Wedding or maybe an Anniversary 🙂 Have fun with it…. Thanks for stopping by ❤

 

 

Love you a Latté…..

For those who know me I’m not a big fan of Valentines Day. Waaayyy to mushy and pink 😉 Then I saw the Cream and Sugar collection from Doodlebug Design and I fell in love. I’m a big coffeeholic and caffeine addict not to mention a sugar junkie 😀 so you see why this paper spoke to me 😉 Anyways….Dreaming Tree just released a new freebie – Sweetheart Box and I knew this was what I wanted to used the darling paper for. So without further ado:

dsc_0002

This little gift box is very easy to make and goes together perfectly. I added some small pearls from Creative Seasons and the bow is made of glitter paper from Paper Line. Now to fill it with some delicious chocolates and it’s ready to give to that special someone or friend ❤

First card of the year…..

….and it took me almost all day to finish. Cause I’m sick. Not sick enough to not get bored so I had to make something. I had a small conversation with a friend yesterday about Pantone Colors and how we both liked the green “Greenery” they picked for this years color. That reminded me that I had the new Graphic 45 collection “Nature’s Sketchbook” laying around, so I decided that I had to make something with that. But what???? Well it has butterfly prints so I went for this:

dsc_0122

The Swallowtail Butterfly Lever Card from Edisto Island Cards SVG Kit by SVGCuts.

It’s just such an easy and beautiful card to make – in any paper. So apart from writing the Kenton on Facebook (you know who you are) and getting really confused, I didn’t make any mistakes today. I was just slow as you are when you’re not feeling well.

Apart from the Graphic 45 paper I used AC cardstock in Spinach and Cranberry and some brown and green dots from my stash. Voila…..a colorful start to the new year 🙂
