…..soon I hope 😉 Summer isn’t that far away neither is our Summer Vacation 😀 Today I just couldn’t get it out of my head. Being home alone for three days will get your thinker thinking 😀 HA HA….. Looking at the gorgeous paper “Safari Adventure” from Graphic 45 didn’t help to get it off my mind so I decided to make something using that paper collection 🙂
First off I made the awesome Zig-Zag Bag from Travel the World SVG Kit by SVGCuts:
I’ve made this one before, but I just love the size and design. So perfect for gift giving. I made the bag itself in black AC Cardstock and decorated it with a quote from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #80218) and some cutouts from the patterend paper. I braided some hemp cord for the handles.
For a looooong time I have wanted to make the 8×8 Gift Box from Maison de Madeline SVG Kit also from SVGCuts and even it’s so easy to assemble, I just hadn’t found the right paper for it. But “Safari Adventure” changed that:
This gift box is so usable due to its size and I love that you can use a 8×8 piece of paper as top panel on the lid. Think of all the possibilities with Graphic 45 papers 😉 Oh my……
Finally I made one of the new Shadow Box Frames from Bird’s SVGs latest collection Picture Perfect
This is the “Large Square Shadow Box Photo Frame” and I altered it slightly since I didn’t use the flowers that come with the file but found some in the Silhouette Design Store that matched the paper – design #56209 and #136583 – along with some tropical leaves design #10191 🙂 I also changed the words on the label 🙂
I made the box in black AC Cardstock and decorated it with the awesome patterend paper. The lilies are made from AC Cardstock as well – in Raspberry, Sunflower, Pomgranate and Moss and I inked the flowers with chalk ink from Prima in light pink and orange.
Here’s a picture with all three items together:
*and look: April had her little calf in this picture 😀 *
And no…my Summer Vaca isn’t to Africa so I’ll just have to give these away to someone who is going or maybe has been to Africa 😉
Happy Easter and thanks for visiting. I’d love to hear what you think of the project ❤
