Today I’m going to show you something very different from what I had prepared.
Go figure! I’ve had my eye on this Christmas Fireplace from Simply Crafty Svgs for a long time. Ever since I saw it on the draft board among other designs and I instantly knew THAT was going to be a Christmas project.
So when this was released I got busy…..REALLY busy! Barely got home from the Gym today 😀
I’m totally in love with this cool giftbox. Especially because – well it’s a box but also because of the awesome fireplace that lits up by a LED tea light. Such a brilliant design!
I made mine with AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stack Red&White Christmas and Recollections Paper Pad Wood, Marble and Brass.
I also used a bit of vellum for the flames, that I colored with Distress Ink.
The wood logs are embossed with a wood grain embossing folder from Darice and the panels on the Mantel are embossed with an embossing folder from Sizzix.
All edges are inked with matching Distress Ink and I added small gems on the cute bows on the garland.
Finally I added a bit of Stickles on the fuzzy top of the Stockings.
I do think this is a keeper. If only I can find a spot for it 😀 Otherwise I may have to make this again in a downsized version.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I will show you the original intended piece another day soon.
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 😉 )
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:
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 😀
