Sleeping Beauties

……Fantasy Foals….. or just plainly Unicorns 🙂 Would have called this blog post “Horny Horses” but I bet lots of readers would choke on their morning coffee while reading this so I thought it best to find a more sober headline 😀

I spend most of a day to make these next projects from Bird’s SVGs newest and absolutely cute collection Fantasy Foals. I just LOVE unicorns! They are adorable, fun, colorful, sweet, cute – well simply amazing and I wish they were real. The world would be a better place if there were unicorns and fairies I think! 🙂

So first of I made the Unicorn Face Mask:DSC_0003

I was a bit intimidated by this but once I got it all cut out, I quickly learned that it was a very easy project. I have never had much succes with rolled flowers but just look at these! Wooohooo I did it! And the mask itself is easy peasy….

I made it out of AC Cardstock in white, black, Scarlet, Cascade and Cricket along with glittery paper in pink and gold. I sprayed the roses with Glimmer Mist “Iridescent Gold” and added some small rhinestones onto each eyelash. Finally I tied some elastic band onto it. Love it to pieces!

Here’s a picture of my kid wearing the mask:

Next I made the Unicorn Easel Card:

This card would go for both kids and grown-ups….Love the colors ❤

I used AC Cardstock in White and black along with glittery paper and some gold foiled cardstock for the horn. That I embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Then I made the small Unicorn Gift Tag:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Cotton Candy and White along with glittery paper in gold and shimmering paper in purple. I also tied some Organza ribbon onto it. Voila….a very easy little tag.

Finally I made the Unicorn Gift Bag:

This was the most difficult piece in the collection but not more difficult than most projects and I really love how it turned out.

I used AC Cardstock in White and Black along with glittery paper and gold foiled cardstock. I used swirly embossing folder from Sizzix and braided 3 different colors of Tinsel Twine from Idea-ology for the handle. Now I only need some cute little girl to give this to or maybe one of my many Unicorn-loving girlfriends 😉

This lovely collection is so very easy to make and I know there are lots of girls (and maybe a few boys) that would love to receive gifts with these Horny Horses 😀

Thanks for stopping by and know that I love when you leave me some small comments ❤

Beautiful Boxes….

….finally done 🙂 I’ve spent the most of a week or so thinking, making and embellishing boxes. Gorgeous and usable boxes from SnapDragon Snippets designed by Jodi G. Warner. I think I’m somewhat addicted to making these boxes 😀 LOL

First off – The Four Drawers Box: (found here )DSC_0103

DSC_0120

I made the main box in AC Cardstock Latté and added panels of patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Vintage Hollywood. The colors are so vibrant so I had to place an equally colorful flower (made from different Prima flowers) in the top corner along with two leaves and embellished with a small metal charm. The knobs and feet are from Ideaology.

The box is pretty easy to assemble but the drawers is a tight fit so be careful when you open these 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Next I made the Box 3D 6×6 Window Lid: (found here or here)

For this adorable box, I used Kraft Cardstock and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Botanicabella. I used some clear acetate for the window and a metal handle and feet that I found online. The flowers are made from various Prima flowers and the butterfly is also found online and I embellished it with some gem studs from my stash.

The box is very sturdy and usable either as keepsake or storage. It’s really handy with the window in the lid to see what’s inside and the box was pretty easy to assemble. The assembly tutorial is found here.

Next I made the Box Hinged Lid and Decorations: (found here or here + here)

For this cutie I used Kraft Cardstock and Graphic 45’s By the Sea. I found some different embellishments in my stash like some sea shells, starfish and seahorse along with the feet. The handle is from Ideaology.

This box is also very sturdy and useful. Very easy to assemble especially when you’ve assembled some like it before 😉 A fantastic box that I think I’m gonna use as a keepsake for things found at the beach 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Then I made the Latch Flap 3D Box to Decorate: (found here or here )

DSC_0105

DSC_0118

For this box I used AC Cardstock Black and Graphic 45’s Halloween in Wonderland. I chose this paper due to the lock and key embellishments also from SnapDragon Snippets (found here for the lock + here for the key or here for the lock + here for the key) It just seem to match up 🙂 The paper I used for the lock and key are by DCWV and is called Mercury  Glass Cardstock. The flower is made from various Prima Flowers and the feet are found online.

This box is also very sturdy and useful. I really like how it closes with the latch flap. This box also assembles rather easy 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Finally I made the Box 3D Secretary: ( Found here or here + here)

DSC_0111

DSC_0112

For this gorgeous box I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Graphic 45’s Communiqué. The flowers are made from various Prima flowers and the metal butterflies are from my stash. The hinges, pull-handle and feet are all from Ideaology.

This box is a bit trickier that the others but if you are careful to place the inner wall the right way, its easy peasy from there on. This is such a cute and useful box – sturdy too. Would be awesome as a gift for a Grand-parent or such. The assembly tutorial is found here.

So this is what I’ve been working on for some time now. Didn’t help much that I had to wait forever on some of the embellishments due to our crabby postal service (some are still on their way 😦 ) But I’m very pleased with the results and would love if you would write and tell me what you think.

Thanks Jodi for making such awesome boxes ❤

Thanks for stopping by ❤

I come bearing gifts……

 

…..in gorgeous giftbags ❤

Here in Denmark we are in the middle of Confirmation season. I bet almost everyone knows somebody or somebody’s child who is being Confirmed this spring 🙂

So it was with great joy I discovered that Mary from SVGCuts had made this beautiful giftbag that fits the occasion greatly – The Crucifix Gift Bag:

DSC_0009

This one I made up for a girl with AC Cardstock in Bubblegum and White along with patterned paper from Galeria Papieru “The Age Of Innocence” and some Sparkling Paper. I also added a handle made from hemp wire and a bow made from hessian.

DSC_0012

I also made the bag in a boy version……

DSC_0008

….using AC Cardstock in Lagoon and White along with the Galeria Papieru paper and more Sparkling paper. I also used the hemp wire as handle and tied some different bluish ribbons onto the bag handle.

DSC_0013

I have seriously fallen in love with Mary’s shaped giftbags and I hope she will create more in the future….I for one is a taker 😀

Thanks for stopping by – hope I have given you some ideas for your next Confirmation, Communion or Babtism ect. Please remember to leave a small comment ❤

Spring……

….sure doesn’t feel like it here in Denmark right now. We’ve had some lovely days in late March and early April but now it looks like winter’s making a comeback 😦  Oh well…..bad weather equals crafting so that’s what I’ve been doing all day 🙂

Earlier this month, Dreaming Tree released a beautiful Spring Bundle: Spring Has Sprung and it’s from this I found my newest project – The Apple Blossom Lantern:

DSC_0008

Normally I LOVE color – the more the better, but for this lantern I figured I’d go with a more natural look. So I broke out my wood-patterned papers from the KaiserCraft Collection Base Coat III and chose a dark pattern for the base and roof and a white painted pattern for the middle part. I also used AC cardstock in Chocolate, Key Lime, Blush and Tangerine. Finally I decorated the lantern with small pearls here and there. I also tucked in some moss around the candle for an even more natural feel.

I just love how this turned out and it’s NOT leaving my house!

I hope I have inspired you to make your own version of the gorgeous lantern and I hope to see lots of them on FB 🙂 Thanks for visiting today and remember to leave me a small comment on your way ❤

Oh and HAPPY EASTER ❤

 

Time for Adventure….

…..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:

DSC_0012

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:

DSC_0011

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

DSC_0006

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 ❤

 

 

Sand and Sea….

….is definitely the theme of the cute new collection from Birds SVGs Picture Perfect and especially the gorgeous Sailboat Shadow Box Light. This picture frame is just perfect for home decor, on the boat or maybe in the Summer House/Cottage 🙂

Bird made hers in all white and it is amazing…..fits in everywhere 🙂 But I wanted to see how it would look with some colors to it – not too much…just a bit here and there and this is what I ended up with:

DSC_0004

I used AC Cardstock in Robins Egg, Charcoal, Crimson, Grass, white and Kraft. I backed the frame with light blue vellum with a sea themed pattern and closed the frame up with clear acetate.

All I did was double the insert pieces and cut them apart to make the colored pieces and then glue them on top of the original inserts 🙂 Easy peasy……

Looks awesome in the daylight but I love it the most at night with some LED lights behind the frame to backlight it…..

DSC_0004

Thanks for stopping by today and please leave me a small comment on whether you like the frame in colors or not 😉

 

Eggs-tra Homemade…..

….nothing like fresh eggs right from the neighbors hens 😉 We’ve really enjoyed these yummy treats this weekend and with Easter coming we might wanna share some 🙂 So I needed to make a nice gift box for them and I found just the thing in Birds Nature’s Bounty Collection.

DSC_0008

This egg-cellent box is just perfect cause it has a holder for the eggs so they don’t scooch around. It’s so easy to assemble and I made mine with AC Cardstock in Coffee (the color not the drink 😉 ) and Graphic 45’s “French Country” paper. The lid is made of acetate. I decorated with some enamels from MME and Simple Stories. The label is cut by hand.

I also made the lovely box in half size to fit some small Easter Eggs:

DSC_0013

For this one I used AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg and Bubblegum and I used Doodlebug’s “Easter Express” paper. The label I made as a print and cut with a Doodlebug design and decorated it with some Doodlebug sprinkles.

Here’s a picture to see the two sizes:

DSC_0011

Love both sizes and the usefulness of the box 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and remember I love to read your comments 😉
