Shake it up!

Hello  – yes I’m already back again but this time with wonderful news: I am now part of the amazing and creative Design Team at Simply Crafty SVGs….wooo hoooo!!!!!

This will be my first DT project post and for this I have chosen to make the delicious Milkshake 😛

DSC_0022

This yummy 3D project is made from AC Cardstock in Aqua, White, Bubblegum, Grass and Crimson along with patterned paper from DCWV from the Copper Luxury Paper Stack.

I switched out the cherry on top with a Strawberry since it’s a Strawberry Shake and added some real sprinkles on top. The Strawberry I took from the Tiki Bar SVG File (from the Strawberry Daiquiri Drink on the counter) and enlarged a lot 😉 I drew some small black dots onto it and highlighted with a Sharpie Pen.

Lastly I tied a cute pink ribbon onto the bottom and voila….time to dig in 😉

This Shake is also a box – just lift up the shake and cream and you can put in a small gift or fill it up with treats. It’s quite large! So I thought to myself – can this one be downsized by 50%?

Yes it can!:

This time it’s a Chocolate Shake but made the exact same way only it’s tiny. The cream part is difficult especially if you struggle with stiff fingers etc.

This one has the cherry on top and the sprinkles are small brown glass beads.

The ribbon on this one is a piece of raffia – gosh it’s so yummylicious 😛 And the great thing about these shakes, is that they are completely free of Calories 😉

Thanks for visiting me (again) today – please let me know how you find the shakes in a comment below – I just love hearing from you ❤

 

Springtime in the Netherlands

…..I can only imagine it. All those tulips! And windmills….and water channels. I was lucky to visit close to Amsterdam this winter but I would really love to go now to see all of the gorgeous signs of Spring.

Well….I can’t go because I can’t afford it but I can bring a little bit of the Netherlands into my living room with this next project I made from SnapDragon Snippets. The files are also available in the Silhouette Design Store.

Wooden Shoe 3D Container with Cubic 3D Tulips (just used the tulips and leaves)

DSC_0032

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel, Cotton Candy, Banana, Rosebud, Apricot, Vanilla, Cranberry, Mulberry, Boysenberry, Lemon, Olive, Spinach and Mustard. It is decorated with wood patterned cardstock in Kraft also from AC and Graphic 45s Floral Shoppe.

The shoe I kept in the original size but the tulips are downsized by 50%.

DSC_0038

I used wooden skewers as stems and attached the flower heads and the leaves with floral tape. Then I added some flower foam and Spanish Moss into the shoe and stuck in the tulips and the leaves.

It is so easy to make – a bit time consuming with all the tulips, but it’s really not that bad.

All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Pads from Prima.

I am so pleased with how this turned out 🙂

I hope you like it too – tell me in a comment please and thanks for joining me today 🙂

Tiny Freebies

I really enjoy all the amazing SVG Companies out there – what would I do without them? And I find it especially awesome that they release so many cute freebies to play with or to try on before buying a new kit or bundle from a company that you haven’t tried before.

I decided to play a bit with some of these freebies – a fragment of what I’ve downloaded so far, but if I made them all, this post would never be over 😉

As much as I love to play and create, I can’t find much storage space anymore, so I downsized them all by 50%

For starters I made the cute Tulip Bag from SVGCuts:

DSC_0023

I used AC Cardstock in Banana and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo. Then I folded it at the score lines and tied some thin wire onto it as a handle….So adorable. Pop in a few candies and use it as a place card or table decor.

Then I moved onto the Window Pane Gift Box also from SVGCuts:

DSC_0012

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and used Graphic 45’s “Cafe Parisian” for the panels that I made. All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink pads.

I also decided to move the small flower on the lid onto the panel to make it more visible.

A cute tiny hostess gift that still after being downsized, holds pretty much candy 😉

I also made the adorable Bird House Box from Bird’s Bird House CollectionDSC_0014

This collection is totally free and includes cards and tags too.

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Bayou, Mint and Lavender along with Cream colored Pearl Paper. The original file only has the swirly layer for the front of the house, but I cut out the bottom of it and repeated two times to get the layer for the sides as well. A little bit tricky with some adjustments here and there 😉

It’s so easy to make and assemble and so cute with a LED tea light inside….the cute birdie that lives inside looks kinda freaky on this picture 😀 LOL.

Finally I made the darling Sunflower Treat Basket from Dreaming Tree – made up as a Daisy 😉

DSC_0018

I used AC Cardstock in Pine, White, Banana and Mustard and decorated with Graphic 45s “Little Women” patterned paper.

I made my own panel for the handle by offsetting the handle internally and attached it to the basket with two small yellow brads.

So easy to make it more spring-y with the daisy instead of the fall like Sunflower – just change the colors.

These were the few freebies I wanted to show you today – there might be a part two 😉

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a small comment on your way out – thanks ❤

 

The Wild West

We all know that finding something to make for a guy’s Birthday is tough. Usually most of the kits and files out there are cute, feminin or for kids. But Mary from SVGCuts just made it a whole lot easier crafting something cool for a man – with the amazing Wildflower Saloon Kit. I couldn’t keep myself from making most of the parts of the kit because it is just da bomb!!!

So first I made the Whiskey Barrel:

DSC_0010

I made mine in AC Cardstock in Caramel and Black and embossed all the panels with Darice Woodgrain Embossing folder. Then I inked all with different shades of brown ink pads from Prima Ingvild Bolme. On the rings I have rubbed Prima Metallique Wax in Rich Copper, Brushed Iron and Aged Brass and added some Tim Holtz brads.

Don’t be intimidated by the barrel – it is very easy to make!

Next I made the Cowboy Hat:

DSC_0013

This is downsized to 75% in order to keep the size ratio with the barrel. I made mine from AC Cardstock in Chestnut and tied some hemp cord around the top.

This is actually a box and it is so easy to make. I had it done in no time 🙂

Then there’s the Rustic Lantern:

DSC_0008

This amazing design is also downsized to 75% and is made from AC Cardstock in Coffee and some Vellum. All of the pieces are rubbed with Prima Metallique Wax in Bronze Age, Rich Copper and Aged Brass.

I can’t get the Darice light here in Denmark, so I put in a 20 piece LED sting of lights inside instead. Works just as well 🙂

This one is a bit more challenging to make (especially if you downsize it) but it’s nothing you can’t handle 🙂 Just takes a bit more time and Mary has a wonderful tutorial video for you to follow 🙂

Next I made a pair of Cowboy Boots – these are NOT from the Wildflower Saloon Kit but from an older kit called Happy Trails:

DSC_0015

The boots are also downsized to 75% and I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut and Coffee along with some silver pearl paper. I used a Damask patterned embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the panels and a Leopard Print embossing folder, also from Cuttlebug, on the inside panels. Then I used some Tim Holtz brads on the backstraps and top straps and inked the embossing with some dark brown Prima chalk ink.

Finally I made the adorable Trunk of Wildflowers Box Card:

DSC_0017

For the card I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Mint, Oregano, Moss, Rosebud, Vanilla, Melon, and Canary along with patterned paper from Graphic45s French Country. I also used some copper colored pearl paper for the hardware. On the handles I used Tim Holtz brads and on the hardware I used some copper colored brads I found in my stash.

I also decorated the flowers with different pearls and gems from my stash and inked all the edges with Prima Chalk ink (Ingvild Bolme).

This card looks difficult but it isn’t. Just follow the instructions on the PDF or watch Marys tutorial.

And here it is – in all its glory 😀 Yee Haw!

I want to thank you for joining me today – it was so much fun to put these things together and I really hope you’ll make some of your own ❤

More Easter projects…..

……Yes – I’m a complete Easter Maniac this year 😀

I’ve got some more Easter projects to show you 🙂 but I promise that these will be some of the last you’ll see from me….this year 😉

First of I made the adorable Egg Holder with a 3D Bunny from the Silhouette Design Store – designed by Tanya Batrak:

DSC_0008

This is a very easy but so cute project to make and it requires a minimum of supplies.

I down sized the original file by 50% and cut the bottom of the box, the grass and the Bunny out of AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Spinach and Grass (the eyes are cut from black pearl paper and doodled with a White Sharpie) and the top is made from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden” paper.

Then I assembled the box and the bunny (find the tutorial here) and glued him inside the middle hole so he can peak out.

I added some cress to the two plastic egg-shells (I was a bit out of time – my original thought was to grow the cress inside each shell. That will get you a better looking cress) and put them in the two remaining holes. Easy peasy and ready for the Easter Lunch table.

“Hello” 😀

Next I made the Easter Wreath from Miss Kate Cuttables:

DSC_0003

This one I supersized to fit the 12″x12″ cutting mat and cut it from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Bubblegum, Lipgloss, Mint, Key Lime, Peach, Banana, Vanilla and Cheastnut.

It is very easy to assemble and for a fun little touch, I used Glossy Accent in all the “holes” in the eggs and berries. What a shine!

Now it’s hanging on my entrance door to greet all visitors 🙂

So finally I made the cute 3D Bunny from the Bunny Hop SVG Kit by SVGCuts:

DSC_0011

I’ve made her before, but this time I downsized her by 50% so she could sit in the Easter Egg shaped Dome I found online.

She is made from AC Cardstock in White and Bubblegum and patterned paper from Doodlebug Design paper “Springtime.” The eyes are two black pearls from Prima.

Even though she is downsized, she is still very easy to make and she is SO adorable this small.

DSC_0009

So there you have it. All of these projects were made ready for hubby’s Birthday Brunch last Sunday and are now a part of my HUGE Easter decor stash 😀

Thanks for stopping by today. I really hope you enjoyed these projects and I promise I’m ALMOST done with Easter……I just have one more thing to show. Stay tuned 😀

 

Easter Egg Shaker Bag

Hello 🙂 So glad you found the time to join me today.

I know I’ve been going a bit cray cray with all kinds of Easter projects lately – I just feel so inspired this year.

This time I’ve thrown myself at the cute Easter Egg Hunt Collection from Bird. I felt like having a bit of fun with the files, so I simply combined two of the files into one – The Easter Egg Shaker Card and the Easter Egg Hunt Gift Bag. I also downsized the two files to 50% (so it holds less egg – I’m not a rich girl 😉 )

DSC_0014

For this project I used AC Cardstock in Lavender and Vanilla along with cream colored Pearl Paper. I also used various sequins and glitter to put inside the shaker part.

I also added a small Prima Flower and some leaves, decorated the front of the bag with some small gems in purple and pink and tied a organza ribbon on as handle. Then I filled the bag with chocolates 😛

All you have to do is follow the instructions videos that Bird made and simply put the shaker part from the card onto the bag insted of the panel piece made for it. I did scramble a bit around with the sizes to make them fit perfectly together – just make sure to group the shaker parts together so they still fit together. The size for the shaker front panel is: 101.46 mm x 78.22 mm (3.994″ x 3.080″ )

Here’s a close-up so you can see the sequins and glitter in the shaker:

DSC_0016

A small but easy and fun project that I really hope you feel like making too 🙂

Thanks for joining me today…..Easter is racing towards us. Have you decorated your house yet and are you done with your Easter craft projects? Me….No…..and NO 😀

 

Tiny Easter Eggs

It’s is closing in on us – need to get those projects done because before you know it, Easter has come and gone.

So my main focus these days is Easter since I don’t have that much made the last couple of years. And there are so many cute projects out there, so you can easily fill your living room, kitchen and bedrooms with lots of cute chickens, Easter Bunnies etc.

Being a slightly active crafter ( 😉 ) I don’t have a lot of space for storage, so I decided to try and downsize some Easter decor and I chose to start with the darling Egg Chocolate Box from Bird’s Eggstravagance SVG Collection

DSC_0028

This tiny cutie is downsized by 50% and I used AC Cardstock in White along with pearl paper in Purple, Gold, Mint and Lilac for it. Then I embellished with different gems and dots from my stash.

To make the Egg a bit more considerable, I made the Cupcake Stand from Bird’s Celebrate With Cupcakes Collection for it to sit on. The stand is also downsized by 50 %.

I love that it fits into one of my Glass Domes – tiny and pretty. It’s about 4.8″ tall.

DSC_0024

But wait – there is more……

You can’t have one without the other, so I made the Egg Luminary also from the Eggstravagance SVG Collection downsized by 50% (now 4.88″ tall)

DSC_0039

I made it from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Pearl paper in gold. Then I embellished with lots of cream colored pearls from my stash. It’s perfect sized – a LED tea light candle fit perfectly inside.

And just look how gorgeous it is in the dark with a color shifting LED light inside

DSC_0008

Now don’t be fooled by the tiny-ness of these projects. They take the same time to make and assemble as the original sizes and this is definitely something you would want to consider making unless you’re a bit masochistic as I am, cause the bits are very small and it’s somewhat tricky to assemble. I think I just enjoy torturing myself with these tiny projects 😀

Thanks for joining me today. I really hope you enjoyed my tiny eggs and I hope you are as busy Easter crafting as I am. Don’t forget to leave me a comment on your way out ❤
