Horrible Cake

Halloween is sneaking up on us and will arrive before we know it…..so it’s best to be prepared and get those decorations done.

It’s my favorite time of year – Honestly – I think Halloween all year long. When I see a new kit or file, my first thought is: Can this be Halloweenified?

The files I’m using for the project I’m about to show you, could!

Imagine Morticia Adams in the kitchen, baking a Birthday cake. Wouldn’t be just any normal cake now, would it? Nahhhh I imagine it something like this:

A moldy cake with bloody filling topped with spiderwebs and naturally an axe to chop it up into fitting pieces. Served on a creepy stand with blood dripping down over the edge.

I know I have a vivid imagination, but I couldn’t help myself (again)

I used several Simply Crafty SVGs files for this one – namely the Cake Slice Box (downsized by 50%) , the Bloody Hatchet (downsized by 25%) and the all new Cake Plate/Display Stand (Made a bit bigger to fit the scale)

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Rouge, Chocolate, Melon and Leaf along with patterned paper from Authentique’s “Tricky” Collection and some grey Bling Bazzill Cardstock.

I also used a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss the panels on the foot of the stand.

The blood splatter on the stand is a design from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #97008) by Sophie Gallo.

The cake slices (I made 8 for a whole cake) opens up so you can put some treats inside. I was thinking about using this as place cards, where people just find their own name and sit where ever they want to 😉

All of this is so easy to make and decorate – just let your imagination run wild!

That was what I wanted to share with you today – stay tuned for more creepy, bloody Halloween decor as we get closer and closer to the scary but awesome Halloween.

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:

DSC_0014

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:
DSC_0013

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.

DSC_0003

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.

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.

DSC_0015

Hope you enjoyed my post today – Fall isn’t over yet and neither am I, so look forward to more Fall projects from me.

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 ❤

Colorful Autumn

I know we’re not quite there yet, but here in Denmark the weather is starting to say: Fall!

After an incredible summer with record high temps, a record long drought and record for most sunshine, August has been a bit disappointing in terms of heat and sun. We got lots of rain….enough to end the drought and make everything green again but come on….enough is enough 😀

In a few days it’s September and the first month of Fall so what better to start making Fall decorations.

I started out with the gorgeous Falling Leaves Topiary from  Hello Autumn SVG Bundle by Dreaming Tree:

DSC_0009.JPG

This is made from AC Cardstock in Boysenberry, Carrot, Cherry, Dandelion, Melon and Leaf.

I used a Darice Crackle Embossing folder on all the leaves and inked with Distress Ink from Ranger. The veins are made with Sharpie pens.

I couldn’t get the cone that is to be used with this project, so I made my own and I also altered the top to look like another layer instead of a gold cone. Finally I glued a Amethyst pearl on top.

I didn’t make the vase for it because I wanted it to be placed on a plate with some other Fall projects – like the Big Ghost Pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin kit from SVG Cuts:

DSC_0007

I made this one in AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Leaf, Coffee and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper from Galeria Papieru.

I also embossed a few panels with a bark-like embossing folder from Creative Expressions and inked all edges with Distress Ink and Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink. The leaf is embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

Incredibly easy to make – even for beginners!!!

I also made the gorgeous Apple from the Miss Baker’s Classroom kit also by SVG Cuts:

DSC_0008

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Rouge and Leaf and embossed with a Sizzix letter embossing folder and the leaf with a leaf-veined embossing folder. All edges are inked with Distress ink and lastly I decorated the apple with some raffia and twine along with some small gems and a button from my stash.

These three items really goes well together, don’t you think?

DSC_0005

So now it’s all ready to decorate my dining room table the next couple of months – until Halloween anyways 😉

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you liked this post. Let me know in a comment below. Thank you ❤

 

Pretentious Turkey

Happy Sunday and welcome back – so great of you to visit!

Scrolling through files, in order to find projects that I haven’t made or have saved for later, I found the cute 3D Turkey from the  JGW Turkey Trot kit.

Thumnail front BLOG

I always thought he looked so cute and a bit …. hmmmmm….. shall we say less intelligent 😉 (after all he is a Turkey) but I also saw something else…..and it was NOT a Turkey.

Well I saw a Peacock and that was what I wanted to turn him into….a Pretentions Turkey. Not surprising that I saw that, because Peacock and Turkey are kinda relatet – both belong to the order of Phasianidae – Pheasant birds.

Anyways – I made the body like the Turkey only to switch out the head ornament with that of a Peacock that I made from a Dandelion file from The Silhouette Design Store (Unfortunently the file is discontinued) and left out the Wattle.

Then I made the tail – very simple. I took the tail part and the panels and sized it up two times for the next two layers and cut them into singles – then I added them behind the first tail.

Well enough talk – here he is……the Pretentious Turkey:

DSC_0010

And a side view to see the pretail too:

DSC_0007

The Peacock feather pattern I added to the feathers is also a Silhouette Design Store File – Design ID #78856. It’s a set but I just used the first upright feather.

DSC_0012

So in order to make this pretentions bird, I used AC Cardstock in Emerald, Shamrock, Marine, White, Black, Chestnut and Shadow along with shimmery paper in Blue, Light Blue, Green, Yellow and pearl paper in black. For the side wings I used some patterned paper from DCWV from a Texture Pad to make them look like those pheasant-kind wings that the Peacock has.


The tail did get a bit heavy due to the use of many feathers but I compensated by adding some heavy glass stones into the little box underneath the bird.


So how do you like him now? Please let me know in a small comment below and enjoy the rest of your Sunday….and have a wonderful new week too ❤
