The Wild West

We all know that finding something to make for a guy’s Birthday is tough. Usually most of the kits and files out there are cute, feminin or for kids. But Mary from SVGCuts just made it a whole lot easier crafting something cool for a man – with the amazing Wildflower Saloon Kit. I couldn’t keep myself from making most of the parts of the kit because it is just da bomb!!!

So first I made the Whiskey Barrel:

DSC_0010

I made mine in AC Cardstock in Caramel and Black and embossed all the panels with Darice Woodgrain Embossing folder. Then I inked all with different shades of brown ink pads from Prima Ingvild Bolme. On the rings I have rubbed Prima Metallique Wax in Rich Copper, Brushed Iron and Aged Brass and added some Tim Holtz brads.

Don’t be intimidated by the barrel – it is very easy to make!

Next I made the Cowboy Hat:

DSC_0013

This is downsized to 75% in order to keep the size ratio with the barrel. I made mine from AC Cardstock in Chestnut and tied some hemp cord around the top.

This is actually a box and it is so easy to make. I had it done in no time 🙂

Then there’s the Rustic Lantern:

DSC_0008

This amazing design is also downsized to 75% and is made from AC Cardstock in Coffee and some Vellum. All of the pieces are rubbed with Prima Metallique Wax in Bronze Age, Rich Copper and Aged Brass.

I can’t get the Darice light here in Denmark, so I put in a 20 piece LED sting of lights inside instead. Works just as well 🙂

This one is a bit more challenging to make (especially if you downsize it) but it’s nothing you can’t handle 🙂 Just takes a bit more time and Mary has a wonderful tutorial video for you to follow 🙂

Next I made a pair of Cowboy Boots – these are NOT from the Wildflower Saloon Kit but from an older kit called Happy Trails:

DSC_0015

The boots are also downsized to 75% and I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut and Coffee along with some silver pearl paper. I used a Damask patterned embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the panels and a Leopard Print embossing folder, also from Cuttlebug, on the inside panels. Then I used some Tim Holtz brads on the backstraps and top straps and inked the embossing with some dark brown Prima chalk ink.

Finally I made the adorable Trunk of Wildflowers Box Card:

DSC_0017

For the card I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Mint, Oregano, Moss, Rosebud, Vanilla, Melon, and Canary along with patterned paper from Graphic45s French Country. I also used some copper colored pearl paper for the hardware. On the handles I used Tim Holtz brads and on the hardware I used some copper colored brads I found in my stash.

I also decorated the flowers with different pearls and gems from my stash and inked all the edges with Prima Chalk ink (Ingvild Bolme).

This card looks difficult but it isn’t. Just follow the instructions on the PDF or watch Marys tutorial.

And here it is – in all its glory 😀 Yee Haw!

I want to thank you for joining me today – it was so much fun to put these things together and I really hope you’ll make some of your own ❤

More Easter projects…..

……Yes – I’m a complete Easter Maniac this year 😀

I’ve got some more Easter projects to show you 🙂 but I promise that these will be some of the last you’ll see from me….this year 😉

First of I made the adorable Egg Holder with a 3D Bunny from the Silhouette Design Store – designed by Tanya Batrak:

DSC_0008

This is a very easy but so cute project to make and it requires a minimum of supplies.

I down sized the original file by 50% and cut the bottom of the box, the grass and the Bunny out of AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Spinach and Grass (the eyes are cut from black pearl paper and doodled with a White Sharpie) and the top is made from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden” paper.

Then I assembled the box and the bunny (find the tutorial here) and glued him inside the middle hole so he can peak out.

I added some cress to the two plastic egg-shells (I was a bit out of time – my original thought was to grow the cress inside each shell. That will get you a better looking cress) and put them in the two remaining holes. Easy peasy and ready for the Easter Lunch table.

DSC_0009

“Hello” 😀

Next I made the Easter Wreath from Miss Kate Cuttables:

DSC_0003

This one I supersized to fit the 12″x12″ cutting mat and cut it from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Bubblegum, Lipgloss, Mint, Key Lime, Peach, Banana, Vanilla and Cheastnut.

It is very easy to assemble and for a fun little touch, I used Glossy Accent in all the “holes” in the eggs and berries. What a shine!

Now it’s hanging on my entrance door to greet all visitors 🙂

So finally I made the cute 3D Bunny from the Bunny Hop SVG Kit by SVGCuts:

DSC_0011

I’ve made her before, but this time I downsized her by 50% so she could sit in the Easter Egg shaped Dome I found online.

She is made from AC Cardstock in White and Bubblegum and patterned paper from Doodlebug Design paper “Springtime.” The eyes are two black pearls from Prima.

Even though she is downsized, she is still very easy to make and she is SO adorable this small.

DSC_0009

So there you have it. All of these projects were made ready for hubby’s Birthday Brunch last Sunday and are now a part of my HUGE Easter decor stash 😀

Thanks for stopping by today. I really hope you enjoyed these projects and I promise I’m ALMOST done with Easter……I just have one more thing to show. Stay tuned 😀

 

Colors of the Rainbow

Hello – so happy you joined me today 🙂

This time it’s not going to be about Easter :-O

If you have followed my blog for some time, you know that I’m crazy about color and this next project is no exception.

These delightful and cute Single Test Tube Holders from Paper Closet Designs – all designed by the very talented Tracy Moon Rushton, can be decorated and used in endless ways and this is just one idea that I’m about to show you 🙂

DSC_0004

Putting candy in a test tube and displaying it in a cute holder, is just sheer genius to me. I know lots of kids who love to have these to share with their buddies or classmates. So great for theme Birthdays and even for adults too 😉

So I made these in the colors of the rainbow with a big help from Doodlebug Design Papers and the first one is Red:

DSC_0006

Red is made from AC Cardstock in Black and patterned paper from the “Back to School” collection. I found the apple and the other Doddlebug Shapes in the Silhouette Design Store but you can also get these from Lori Whitlock. I glued the cut out the black cut out circle onto the lid and decorated with 3 Doodlebug Sprinkles in red colors.

Next is Pink:

DSC_0008

I know! I cheated a bit with this one as it’s not a rainbow color but the cute fish-bone paper from the “Kitten Smitten” collection spoke to me and so did the cute kitten. The holder it-self is made from AC Cardstock in Bubblegum.

Then we have Orange:

DSC_0010

I had a bit more difficulty choosing the paper for this one but ended up with a patterned paper from the “Anchors Aweigh” collection and a little boat. The cardstock is AC in the color Apricot.

Now it’s Yellow:

DSC_0012

For this one I used AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg and patterned paper from the “Spring Things” Collection. That bee is just so darn cute!

Then we have Green:

DSC_0014

This is made from AC Cardstock in Cheastnut and patterned paper from the “At the Zoo” collection and I decorated with the cutest Mama and baby girafs.

After Green comes Blue:

DSC_0016

For this one I chose AC Cardstock in Grass and patterned paper from the “Dragon Tail” collection. I just love this fire blowing dragon.

Last but not least there is Purple:

DSC_0018

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in white and decorated with patterned paper from the “Fairy Tales” collection. Tell me – which girl can stand for this adorable little unicorn?

There you have them all! For all the little decorations, I’ve used the Print and Cut option on my Silhouette Cameo. Even though there are 7 holders, it didn’t take me long to have them all cut and assembled. A super easy project – luckily if you’re going to make them as party favors or for an entire school class 🙂

Thanks for joining me today and please remember to leave me a small comment so I know if you liked this project ❤

Easter Egg Shaker Bag

Hello 🙂 So glad you found the time to join me today.

I know I’ve been going a bit cray cray with all kinds of Easter projects lately – I just feel so inspired this year.

This time I’ve thrown myself at the cute Easter Egg Hunt Collection from Bird. I felt like having a bit of fun with the files, so I simply combined two of the files into one – The Easter Egg Shaker Card and the Easter Egg Hunt Gift Bag. I also downsized the two files to 50% (so it holds less egg – I’m not a rich girl 😉 )

DSC_0014

For this project I used AC Cardstock in Lavender and Vanilla along with cream colored Pearl Paper. I also used various sequins and glitter to put inside the shaker part.

I also added a small Prima Flower and some leaves, decorated the front of the bag with some small gems in purple and pink and tied a organza ribbon on as handle. Then I filled the bag with chocolates 😛

All you have to do is follow the instructions videos that Bird made and simply put the shaker part from the card onto the bag insted of the panel piece made for it. I did scramble a bit around with the sizes to make them fit perfectly together – just make sure to group the shaker parts together so they still fit together. The size for the shaker front panel is: 101.46 mm x 78.22 mm (3.994″ x 3.080″ )

Here’s a close-up so you can see the sequins and glitter in the shaker:

DSC_0016

A small but easy and fun project that I really hope you feel like making too 🙂

Thanks for joining me today…..Easter is racing towards us. Have you decorated your house yet and are you done with your Easter craft projects? Me….No…..and NO 😀

 

Happy Little Hopper

Good evening……well – it is evening now here in Denmark 🙂

I’m just popping in to show you the cutest little bunny I made last night. It’s from Dreaming Tree’s latest bundle Easter Frolics  – the Easter Bunny Egg Box:

DSC_0005

She is made from AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Lemon and Apricot along with Swiss Dot Cardstock from Bazzill in Purple and Pink, Orange and Green glitter cardstock. The facial features are made from black pearl paper and the freakels are Ranger Enamel Accent in Black. All the panels are embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and I used lots of pop dots for the face, body, arms and feet along with the bow to give it the right dimension.

I dotted the eyes and feet with a White Sharpie and added a small flower gem to the center of the bow.

Now I did say “cute little bunny” but she’s really not that small at all. She can hold LOTS of chocolate Easter eggs 😛 A real treat for the youngsters (and people like me 😀 )

As always with Dreaming Tree the assembly is very easy (did mine without the tutorial) and smooth and in case you just want to get the bunny, you can get her seperately here.

Thanks for stopping by and please brighten my spirits with a small comment on your way out ❤

Hello Spring

Hello to Spring…..Hello to you and Happy Sunday!

Today I want to show some Easter and Spring projects that I made this last week. Who isn’t dying to get out all their Easter and Spring decor right about now and start decorating? I know I’m soooo ready for Spring and Easter always marks the transition from Winter to Spring for me. So I’ve been busy creating.

First of I want to show the cute Spring Wreath from SnapDragon Snippets that I made using the Flat 3D Daisy instead of the original flower – just to make it more dimensional.

DSC_0008

I used AC Cardstock in Lollypop, Cotton Candy, Grass, Oregano, Melon and Sunflower and inked all the edges with Prima Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads. Then I used a black Sharpie to draw the small dot on the centers of the flowers. Finally I tied a pink dottet ribbon on top and that’s it. Very very easy to make – and it’s so Spring-y.

DSC_0010

Next I made the small and adorable 3D Chick Box that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (it is a SVG Attic file though)

DSC_0020

Isn’t he cute?

I used AC Cardstock in Canary, Dandelion, Caramel, Chocolate and Black and for the wings I used Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock in a light yellow.

I inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads and mounted the wings with yellow heart shaped eyelets. Finally I dotted the little eye with a white Sharpie.

Love this little fellow to bits – and it’s a box that you can put treats in!

Last but not least I made an Easter Card:

DSC_0018

This adorable and fun card is the Bunny Shaker Window Card from SnapDragon Snippets (also available in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #189097)

For this baby I used AC Cardstock in White, Black, Carrot, Sunflower, Grass, Oregano and Peony and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads. I used a piece of Acetate from Crafter’s Companion as window and filled it with Skittles. Now who wouldn’t love to get a card like this one?

And there you have it – the Easter/Spring projects I’ve been fiddling with this last week and believe me – I ain’t done yet!

Thanks for joining me today – hope to see lots of Easter and Spring crafting goodies from you guys!

Egg-stravagant Baskets……

So glad you decided to come join me today, as I want to show you the most darling little Easter Egg Baskets I made.

All of these baskets are designed by the very talented Tracey Moon Rushton of Idea Closet and can be purchased  here

Let’s start off with the smallest – the Chocolate Egg Basket Single:

DSC_0008

 

Next is the Chocolate Egg Basket Double that holds two eggs:

DSC_0010

 

And the largest of the baskets, the Chocolate Egg Basket 4 pack that holds 4 eggs:

DSC_0006

 

For my versions of the baskets, I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden”.

I cut out extra panels for the inside of the baskets and decorated them with various flowers from Prima and chipboard tags also from Graphic 45.

Finally I put in plastic eggs that I decorated with paper borders and Prima flowers + small gems as flower centers, since I haven’t gotten to buying any eggs for them yet 😮

The baskets also comes in a handy bundle if you decide to get all three baskets at once

That was all for now – feels like I’m not quite done with Easter just yet 😉 Stay tuned for more……

 

Bunny Garden

Hello – so glad you want to join me today.

I’m sneaking in to show you a “little” project I made this week. You know when the idea hits, you just gotta go with it – so I did.

I’ve set my mind to changing up the Carrot 4 pnl 3d Box Fence from SnapDragon Snippets and I thought of changing the carrots to bunnies.

untitled

So I grabbed the nose and whiskers from the Bunny Shaker Window Card, the ears from the Bunny 3D Spheres Figure and the eyes from the Bunny Tummy Lip Balm Standing Card and started my project.

DSC_0010

I made the Bunnies in White AC Cardstock with ears and nose in Cotton Candy and the eyes and whiskers in black pearl paper. I dotted the eyes and nose with a white Sharpie and inked the edges with a Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink pad in Pastel Brown.

The ears are made as I would for the 3D Spheres Figure, but I cut the bottom of and glued it onto the top of the front segment, filled it with candy and then I closed the box by tying a ribbon around the top segments and made a bow. I did this for all three bunnies.

DSC_0014

Then onto the box itself….

It’s made from green Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and White AC Cardstock and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in Pastel Brown and Garden Grass. Then all I had to do was follow the instructions from Jodi G. Warners tutorial.

DSC_0012

Last but not least I added some Prima flowers onto the fence for that Spring feel.

Hope you like this “little” project as much as I do and thanks for joining me today.
