This post is a copy of the one from the SVG Attic Blog – a post to say goodbye to the team and to SVG Attic which sadly are closing the store. I am NOT stopping blogging or paper crafting 🙂 Just so you know.
Unfortunately every good thing must come to an end and being part of the SVG Attic Inspirational Team has definitely been a very good thing for me. I have really enjoyed making projects almost weekly (as I have a somewhat problem by controlling myself), coming up with new ways to put the files together or simply remaking some of the gorgeous files that flowed from the designers.
It is very sad to say goodbye to this, to my team mates – my “family” but I know we’ll keep connected somehow and I’m thrilled to have learned that the files get to live on in the Silhouette Design Store.
I did make one final project – so I can drive off in style:
I have wanted to make this truck for so long and just needed the right occasion – well it is now.
It’s downsized by 50% so it’s pretty small and it’s make from AC Cardstock in Pine, Black, Vanilla and Latte along with Silver Metallic Paper from Tim Holtz.
The tiny nails are made from drops of Enamel Accent by Ranger and I used Distress Ink on all the edges and for the faux woodgrain on the rail.
I also added some gems on the front and back lights.
Instead of adding a pumpkin or tree in the back of the truck, I made some tiny suitcases (from the SDS Paris Voyage kit) These are downsized to 33% to fit the scale.
They are made of AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Cranberry, Denim and Chocolate and decorated with gold pearl paper. I used Enamel Accent as nails also on these.
I chose to use a vers from the Goodbye song in “The Sound of Music” because it just fits perfectly and put it in the suitcase tag.
Now I can drive towards the sunset and think about a happy time on the Inspirational Team – trying to figure out what to do now. I will still be making SVG Attic stuff – that is for sure!
I want to thank all of you for visiting the blog – without you none of this would have happend. It’s such a thrill to know that people out there like the stuff you make and I hope that you will continue to follow along on my private blog: My Creative Hideout and/or on my FB page.
To my fellow team mates: I love you and we’ll keep in touch. Thank you so much for giving me this chance to grow – because I really did during these two years I’ve been a part of the team.
See you all out there in Cyperspace! So Long……
