Colorful Christmas

Today I want to show a small project I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time now. I admit I was a bit intimidated by it, but lately some of my projects have been rather challenging so I looked at it again and thought: Naaahhhh you can do it!

I’m talking about the cute Candy Cane Box from the JGW Santas Repose kit from SVG Attic.

It’s made from Rouge AC Cardstock and the stripes are some thin washi tape I found in my stash. Made it very easy to wrap.

The pinecone is made from Chestnut AC Cardstock and decorated with two types of glitter so it looked frosted.

Finally the holly is made from Pine and Spinach AC Cardstock and decorated with Cricket POW Glitter paper from AC.

I am really surprised how easy everything was to make and assemble – what was I fearing???? Sometimes you just have to tell that head of yours to be quiet and dive in! 😉

I stuffed this baby full of red, green and purple Skittles and it’s all ready as gift for a lucky someone.

Thanks for stopping by today – ahead is a full month of Christmas with lots of creative projects, yummy treats and lots of cozy moments with friends and family…..Oooooooh I’m so excited!

Time for Christmas

It’s getting closer and closer 🙂 And I for one am like a child – I can’t wait.

Talking about Christmas in all it’s glory, glitter and coziness ❤

One of my new Christmas decorations is the Gingerbread House Clock from Bird’s Christmastime SVG Collection:

The house itself is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel and decorated with White Glitter Paper from Best Creation and pink/rose colored POW Glitter paper from AC. The base is made from White AC Cardstock and the panels are patterned paper from My Minds Eye “Colorful Christmas”. The vellum is from a local craft store and is patterned with white swirls.

I embellished with different sizes of white glitter domes and painted the second hand with a white sharpie and rose colored Stickles glue.

As I was thinking it would be awesome to tell time at night also, I cut out the numbers on the watch through all the layers and added some vellum behind – works like a charm 😉

Love this Gingerbread House Clock. It’s tick tock’ing away in my living room and is a gorgeous addition to all my other luminary Christmas Decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’ll be back soon with another Christmas project 😉

 

Skellington on a Stick

Hello – hope you’re having an amazing Tuesday today 🙂 Mine’s been pretty lazy so far but I guess soon I’ll have to go stretch the old bones and go for a walk.

Talking about bones….I was so inspired by Annita Kristine Schøtt Pedersen’s cute snowman on the SVG Attic Fanatics FB page yesterday, so I had to make one myself. I don’t know how the idea popped into my head, but I realized that I wanted to make him into Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare before Christmas”

He is made from the Spring Spiral Snowman from the  JGW Made of Snow kit. All I had to alter was the face (found one in the Silhouette Design Store #156604), make the butterfly by welding two bats from the Silhouette Design Store (found here and here) and draw some white lines with a Sharpie.

I also cut some “hands” in white and added to the arms on both front and back and finally I made a button from the skeleton on the Mourner’s Hat from JGW Raven Quest.

I used AC Cardstock in Black and White along with AC POW Glitter paper in Charcoal and a tiny bit of black floss for the button.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave that little special comment for me to read 😉

Batty for Halloween…..

….yup you know it’s me 😀 It is my favorite Holiday of the year – bigger than Christmas. So I have to start early if I have to make it in time with all the new decorations to make. And today I also celebrate being a new Team Member on the SVG Attic Inspirations Team ❤

This time I want to show you the two adorable Bats on Stands designed by Jodi G. Warner for SVG Attic (get them here) as part of an amazing Halloween collection JGW Night Enchantments:

For this projects I used lots of Black AC Cardstock and a little Wine and Leaf. I also used Graphic 45’s “An Erie Tale” papers and black glitter paper (for the swirly parts of the bats) I inked all the edges of the black cardstock with a grey inkpad and used a dark brown inkpad for the patterned paper. I decided to make the bats a tad more scary by embellishing with some Halloween charms and adornments.

I really loved how easy these were to assemble. I originally intended to make only one of the bats but loved it so much, I had to make the other one too 😀

Here are some more pictures of the project:

I am really excited to be on the SVG Attic Team and look forward to making lots fun stuff in the future since they have all these amazing files to play with ❤

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something 😉
