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 decoration 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?

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 from SVG Attic 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:

DSC_0001

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.

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.

DSC_0014

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.

You Trick, I Treat!

Hello – so happy that you decided to visit my blog today 🙂

I have some fun projects to show you – Halloween of course 😉

Very recently Sandy of Simply Crafty SVGs released a series of K Cup Holders and instantly I started wondering about how to make something else with these. We don’t have K Cups in Denmark (all kinds of other Coffee Capsules though) so what could I put in these awesome holders?

Well change the size of the holes in them and they will fit perfectly for Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

And dress them in Halloween papers – then Voila! Ready to go! Perfect for Trick or Treaters or maybe as a hostess gift.

First of is the K Cup Holder (2 Cup) :

DSC_0008

I made this funny and kid-friendly….kind of 😉

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Chocolate, Latte and Melon, red and white pearl paper and decorated with Doodlebug Paper “BooVille” and some Doodlebug Sprinkles that matched.

DSC_0009

The little owl whoooo(‘s) missing his eyes, is from the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #31986 (designed by Susie Hildebrandt)

DSC_0010

I found the tag and text in the Silhouette Design Store too – Tag: Design ID #31986 (designed by Sweet Afton) and text: Design ID #66686 (designed by Sandi Idleman) I used a white sketchpen to draw on the tag.

I used some red/white twine to tied the tag onto the holder.

Cute right? 🙂

Next I made a little more adult holder:

DSC_0004

This is the same holder as before and for this one I used AC Cardstock in Black and Melon, Bazzill Swiss Dot Paper in Green and decorated with Bobunny paper “Wonderfully Wicked” and white and green pearl paper.

The Toads I found in the Cricut design Store (from the Potions and Spells Cartridge)

DSC_0005

The label – Wart of Toad – I found online. There are thousands so take your pick! It’s a print and cut label.

DSC_0006

I decided to keep using the tag and text from before – just seems so fitting. This one is decorated with some Doodlebug Sprinkles in Matte and matching colors. I used green and white twine for tying the label onto the holder.

Finally I made the Triangles K Cup Holder:

DSC_0001

This one is also a bit more adult and so much fun due to the shape 🙂

I used AC Cardstock in Black for this one, white and copper colored pearl paper and patterned paper from Making Memories – “Spellbound” (very old collection)

This holder was of course a bit more challenging to assemble but not hard at all.

DSC_0002

This label is also one I found online – those chocolates could look like brains especially without the paper 😀

DSC_0003

Of course I used the same tag again and the tiny spider is from Doodlebug. It’s tied with white and black twine.

So I had fun with these K Cup Holders and found another use for them. I can’t wait to see what YOU come up with!

Thanks for visiting today – more Halloween coming up soon 😀

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:

DSC_0016

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:

DSC_0017

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.

Bewitched Cake Stand

Hello… (waving enthusiastically) … just sneaking in today to show you a very fun project I’ve been working on this last week. 🙂

I got the idea from a friend who showed me this picture:

40684094_241544659753572_7144910669375078400_n

First I thought “corny” but then I kept thinking about it and wondering if it could be made in paper. And….yeah it could!

Roaming through files I found that SVG Attic had the right files for it, so I started building.

I wanted mine to be a Halloween inspired Cake Stand and I gathered the files I needed for this: The 3D Witches Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, the Sunflower 3D Cake Stand from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit and the Cats & Pumpkins Hollow Centers Wreath.

I also made the Mini-Candy Cauldron also from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit to sit on top of the stand – I would have liked a cupcake but just didn’t feel like baking 😉

This is how it turned out:

DSC_0009

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Black, Melon, Grape, Carrot and Charcoal along with some Purple Pearl Paper, Gold Foiled Cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Collections “Boos and Brews” and “Booville”

I used the stem part from the Cake Stand to make the legs (just made it a bit longer) and added some glitter tape onto for striped socks. Inside the legs are two 3/4″ dowels for support.

DSC_0004

The top part of the cake stand is reinforced underneath with 4 platform shaped pieces and the legs are glued unto it with hot glue. I chose to use the Cat and Pumpkin Wreath to place on the top for a fun decoration.

DSC_0008

The boots are downsized by 50% to fit the size of the Stand and the legs are glued into them also with hot glue. I added some glas stones into the boots for weight so the whole stand gets more sturdy.

I used twine, various Doodlebug sprinkles and the small patches etc. that comes along with the boots.

DSC_0012

For the Cauldron I used gold foiled cardstock for the handle and chose to use the spider tag on which I doodled two small eyes and added a black gem.

DSC_0011

Actually it’s a pretty easy projects when you think about it – it’s all about getting that idea. Thank you Sandy for providing me with it. ❤

DSC_0001

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you like this wacky project. A fun centerpiece on the Halloween table or as decor in the living room….endless possibilities. 🙂

These little lights of mine…..

…..I’m definitely gonna let them shine! 😉

Hi 🙂 So glad to see you and thank you for joining me today.

It’s really fun when one thing can turn into three – H.C. Andersen did write that one feather turned into five hens but in this case, one lantern turns into three 😉 I used the Square Classic Lantern SVG from Simply Crafty SVGs.

All of these lanterns are downsized by 50%. Both for the fun of it (the challenge) and for storage 😉 I recently cleaned out old projects to give away because I simply do not have room for them anymore. Kinda hard to part with them though!

The first lantern or set of lanterns, I made with a fall-theme:

DSC_0020

I used AC Cardstock in Leaf along with patterned paper from BoBunny’s old collection “Apple Cider” and some patterned vellum from my stash. I also added a bit of raffia to the top of the lanterns.

They are very easy to make and I really love those cross patterned windows. Very cute don’t you think?

Next I made a set with a Halloween theme:

DSC_0023

I used AC Cardstock in Black along with patterned paper from BoBunny’s collection “Wonderfully Wicked” and some printable Vellum on which I printed a spider web pattern. I added some color changing LED lights and they are perfect for a small window in my kitchen 🙂

Finally I made a set with art:

DSC_0026

For these I used AC Cardstock in White along with Mercury Glass Paper from DCWV and printable vellum on which I printed paintings of Monet, Dali, Van Gogh and Picasso.

They look so awesome in a window with the light shining through but also incredible at night with the LED light on.

So these are the three variations you get in the one file and the possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating. Just think Holidays, seasons etc.

Thanks for joining me today and remember to come back soon for more fun projects 🙂

Autumn Wind

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn – in my opinion anyways. I just love this season! The colors are amazing and astonishing, the light is so warm, sky blue, wind is cool and then there is the promise of cold snow….ahhhh can’t wait!!!! 🙂

It is also the season for storms and lots of wind. The best time of year for the Wind Turbine industry at least here in Denmark and we have lots of Wind Turbines. My hubby works in the industry….so I know this is a busy time of year.

Now I don’t have files for a Wind Turbine….at least not yet (*wink* *wink*) but Jodi made the most gorgeous Dutch Windmill this Spring (find it in the Dutch Treat Kit), and that is close enough. So I tied the two together – the season and the Mill and got a beautiful Autumn 3D Windmill:

DSC_0005

I made this out of AC Cardstock in Coffee, Leaf, Wine and Apricot along with patterned paper from Prima “Amber Moon” – a gorgeous collection from last year.

I found it fairly simple to make and assemble but you have to follow the tutorial (found here) thoroughly as it’s a complex but very genius construction.

I inked all the edges with distress ink from Ranger and chose to use hot glue for the attachment of the wing part.

Then I decorated with some small pumpkins from Ideaology and leaves from Prima along with a large Prima flower.

DSC_0006

I really love how versatile this Mill is – just ready to be decorated for whatever season or holiday.

DSC_0011

This Mill actually went to a lady in the Netherlands – the Mother of my son’s gamerfriend. I thought it very fitting to give it to her as a thank you for her welcoming Magnus into her home in February when we visited and for letting her son join Magnus and his Dad on a trip to Germany a couple of weeks ago, where they visited a Gamer Convention.

Ok – enough from me today. Hope you enjoyed it and please do leave me a small comment below. I love to hear from you ❤

Picnic

Hiya! So glad you chose to visit me today. I’ll just have a tiny post for you today.

I want to show you the cute Picnic Basket from Simply Crafty SVGs – just perfect for Labor Day, Autumn, Spring, Summer….what have you! 🙂

DSC_0002

Mine is for Autumn as you can see – made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and decorated with basket-patterned paper from Kaisercraft.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink from Ranger and I added a small Prima flower along with a few Autumn leaves to finish the look.

DSC_0003

This isn’t a large basket, but certainly big enough to hold sweets, a gift card or maybe a small homemade gift and it’s soooo easy to make and assemble. You need to give it a try!

That was what I wanted to show you today 🙂 Please do come back tomorrow as I have more Fall/Autumn on the way :-)………and please leave me a comment below. I LOVE to hear from you ❤
