Happy Autumn

Happy Sunday to you and thank you so much for joining me today.

For the final Autumn projects this year I chose to make the cute 3D Owl from the JGW Autumn Aire kit:

DSC_0010

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Chocolate, Caramel, Rust and Latte along with patterned paper from Echo Park’s “A Perfect Autumn” and woodgrain patterned paper from Simple Stories.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and I used some hemp cord to tie around the belly of the Owl.

I also doodled some highlights in his eyes with a white Sharpie.

He is quite large and sooooooo adorable not to mention very easy to make.

I also made the Oak Leaf Wreath:

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Latte, Pomegranate, Leaf, Apricot, Mustard, Goldfish, Plum, Rouge and Wine for this.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and the leaves and the berries are embossed with different embossing folders from Darice and Sizzix.

I also used pop dots to add the leaves to give it more dimension.

This one is going to live with my Mother, who recently moved from her house into a small apartment with a front door that has a window in it. This will be perfect to hang there and spred a little Autumn happiness.

Thanks for joining me today – now it’s time for Christmas! 😀

The Year’s Last, Loveliest Smile

Hello and Happy Autumn Sunday

Now that Halloween is over, I can start to concentrate on other projects and feeling that I’ve neglected Fall a bit, I’ve decided to make a few more projects with the lush and wonderful colors.

First of I made the Barn 3D Model:

DSC_0004

I downsized it by 50% to match some of my other mini houses and left the roof unglued so I’m able to change the small LED candle inside.

It is made from AC Cardstock in Chestnut and Cranberry along with Bazzill Bling Cardstock in a light grey.

I also used some vellum behind the doors and windows and decorated with Prima flowers and different pearls and gems from my stash.

A totally adorable little fall barn and VERY easy to make – even this small.

I also made the Autumn Bouquet Card from the JGW Enchanted Autumn kit:

DSC_0012

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Vanilla, Mustard, Rouge, Cranberry, Coffee, Plum, Abricot, Rust and Banana along with Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock in light yellow and patterned paper from Recollections’ “Autumn Dream”

I inked all the edges with Distress Ink in matching colors and used two screw-like brads to hold the tag.

The sentiment I found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #23118 by Rivka Wilkins and used the Print and Cut function for it.

I really think what it says it true; Autumn really is the years last, loveliest smile 🙂

Thanks for joining me today – hope to see you again soon.

Too Cute to Spook

I’m back! Halloween is my month and I’m about to show you something that I normally do not make – cute Halloween!

I just couldn’t help myself – Jodi didn’t make it easy for me….ha ha

Just look at this adorable Ghost 3D Cubic Luminary. Isn’t it just the cutest?

DSC_0006

I chose to make faces for the light to shine through on all 4 sides. There are 3 options that comes with the file but I took one of them and just turned the mouth around and voila – a 4th. option.

The Lantern is made from Vanilla AC Cardstock and the faces are backed with golden Vellum.

I inked all edges with a light brown Distress Ink and made the handle with some gold wire from my stash.

Finally I tied some ribbons onto the handle as a final touch.

But I didn’t finish with this one – I had to make the cute Cat 3D Head Model with Rosette (left out the Rosette) on top of the Box 3D Ten Sided with Lid Doily.

DSC_0008

We are cat lovers in our house with three fur babies and this one actually kind of looks like Quark – our huge grey Maine Coon.

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Black, Apricot, Key Lime and White along with Bazzill Bling Cardstock in a dark grey and patterned paper from Tim Holtz.

I left out the tongue and wanted to make some fangs to make him look a bit more spooky, but it didn’t work out so I left him like this. Looks like our lazy cat.

I used some black and white twine as whiskers and tied raffia around the neck with a bow.

Aren’t they both cute. Just the thing for the kids

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back soon!

Luminary Skull

Hello – yes it’s me again.

Gosh I love this time of year!!! I get to use my wicked twisted brain to come up with some diabolic, evil looking projects.

Yes, I believe that Halloween should be scary and not cutesy. Not that there is anything wrong in cutesy projects for the kiddos, but when they reach a certain age (like me…29 😉 ) cutesy just isn’t fun anymore.

I always look for ways to make projects look creepy – the creepier the better 😀

That’s what I did to this awesome Skull Head Candle Holder from Simply Crafty SVGs – just added a bit more scary than was already there to begin with.

DSC_0003

For this I used AC Cardstock in Black, White, Rouge and Chocolate along with patterned paper from Tim Holtz and some Grey Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I embossed the Skull panels with an Embossing folder from Sizzix (also a Tim Holtz I think) and inked all the edges with Distress Ink. I also added some black gems onto the skull layer on the bottom.

I added vellum behind the openings in the Skull and made the blood dripping down or Stearin drips myself. All I did was enlarge the dripping portion of the candle, cut away the top and some of the tabs and cut the pieces out (using scissors) a the scor lines. Then I glued the pieces onto the top of the skull using the top tab and voila!

I made the Bloody Hatchet in 50% of the original size and cut a small slit in the vellum behind the cracked panel on the Skull, so it could fit in there. I haven’t glued it down.

I know the skull isn’t too scary in the daylight but at night…….

DSC_0021

…..Woah!!! :-O

Here’s a little fun video I made:

 

Thanks for joining me today – I hope you like my version of the Skull Head – tell me in a comment below please ❤

Poison and Potion

Happy Sunday and YES! It’s October….the month of Halloween – my favorite time of year.

I just love to decorate my house for Halloween. The kids are getting older and they don’t care as much for Halloween as the Evil Queen of a Mother, but I don’t care. I decorate for me and whom else that like it.

I also enjoy making the decor myself and find it especially fun to Halloweenify ordinary files into something creepy.

That’s what I did with the following bottles: The 3D Love Potion Bottle from the JGW Cupids Aim kit, the Myrrh Bottle from the JGW Gifts for the King kit and the Love Potion Bottle:

DSC_0006

For these spooky potion and poison bottles, I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, White and Apricot.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and White Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.

I made some panels for the large bottle embossed it with a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix.

I also made these bottles into luminaries. I cut some different shapes (from the Witches High Top Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, Scratch Marks Design ID #118964 in the Silhouette Design Store along with the Skull Design ID #20905) Then I glued vellum behind the cutouts and finally I decorated with gems and various trinkets from my stash.

I found some cool strings of LED lights designed for bottles and used these in the large and small bottle. For the medium bottle I dropped in a color shifting LED light.

DSC_0017

Now they are part of my spooky Halloween decorations in my living room and the truth be told….I think the kids like them.

Here a fun little video I made:

 

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back soon with more spooky Halloween projects.

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.

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 😉
