Time to Move

I know. It’s only been a year since I moved but here we go again. This just wasn’t the right spot for us but we hope we’ve found it now and get to stay for years to come.

I was going to have this post ready for my usual spot on the first Wednesday of the month but *SIGH* ….. I had to go to the hospital due to a infected Gall bladder.  The pain started at 4.45 am Monday and by 6.30-7.00 am I was admitted. Been pumped hard with antibiotics and there was even talk about surgery but it never happend. Instead I now have to wait two months for a control meating and decide weather I want the bladder removed in a risk surgery or live my life with occasional gall stone attacks. Geeee….what do you want? Plaque or Cholera? Anyways….I’m home, pain free and still on antibiotics and today is the day I want to post 🙂

This little project is made on inspiration of the move 🙂

The darling Vintage Flatbed Truck from Simply Crafty Svgs is downsized by 50%

I used AC Cardstock in Charcoal, Cranberry and Caramel along with Silver Metallic Kraft paper from Tim Holtz.

All edges are inked with distress Ink in matching colors and for the Flatbed I used a wood grain ebossing folder. I added panels on the inside too.

Finally I used various gems as head and tail lights and adhered the front bumper with a few foam squares.

For the load on the truck, I used the cute Moving Box  freebie that I had Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs design for me after Danish standards.

I downsized it to 25% of the original (very very small) and made 6 in total.

Billede 04h

Then I added two chairs and a table I found in the Silhouette Design Store (design ID #26460 designed by Jennifer Wambach and design ID #26461 also by Jennifer Wambach)

These are also downsized to 25 % of the originals and tied to the boxes with some hemp cord.

I had several other ideas for truck loads – like this cute crate with apples made from a Silhouette Design Store fil ID #66549 by Lori Whitlock.

Again this is extremely downsized and the apples are made from small wooden beads.

I used a Cricut Marker to draw small nail heads onto it and the panels are embossed both on the inside and the outside and inked with Distress Ink.

This little darling is going to stay with me and remind me of this moving. It was so much fun to make this small.

Thanks so much for stopping by – please do leave me a small comment below and to all you US visitor – Happy 4th. of July

Chestnuts Roasting……

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!

Billede 06

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.

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 😉 )

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 😀
