Chocolate Bunny Basket

Hello and happy Easter Sunday Morning 🙂

In this my last Easter post, I want to show you a darling basket I made using the SnapDragon Snippets Basket Lrg 3D Choc Bunny Insert:

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Pine, Spinach, Oregano and Key Lime. I decorated it with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Once Upon a Springtime” and some assorted Prima flowers from my rather large flower stash instead of the Happy Easter sign.

I also used 4 small pink brads to secure the handle and tied a bow in green organza ribbon on top of the handle.

Finally I put in the adorable chocolate bunny and boom! Ready for giving it away – this time to my sister as her Easter Egg from me. I do hope she likes it!

A very easy and most cute project to make for Easter and if you want to put in something else than the bunny, just leave out the insert.

Thank you so much for joining me today and for all my Easter projects – Now it’s time for something else – Let’s see what I come up with 😉

Bunny Garden

Hello – so glad you want to join me today.

I’m sneaking in to show you a “little” project I made this week. You know when the idea hits, you just gotta go with it – so I did.

I’ve set my mind to changing up the Carrot 4 pnl 3d Box Fence from SnapDragon Snippets and I thought of changing the carrots to bunnies.

So I grabbed the nose and whiskers from the Bunny Shaker Window Card, the ears from the Bunny 3D Spheres Figure and the eyes from the Bunny Tummy Lip Balm Standing Card and started my project.

I made the Bunnies in White AC Cardstock with ears and nose in Cotton Candy and the eyes and whiskers in black pearl paper. I dotted the eyes and nose with a white Sharpie and inked the edges with a Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink pad in Pastel Brown.

The ears are made as I would for the 3D Spheres Figure, but I cut the bottom of and glued it onto the top of the front segment, filled it with candy and then I closed the box by tying a ribbon around the top segments and made a bow. I did this for all three bunnies.

Then onto the box itself….

It’s made from green Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and White AC Cardstock and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in Pastel Brown and Garden Grass. Then all I had to do was follow the instructions from Jodi G. Warners tutorial.

Last but not least I added some Prima flowers onto the fence for that Spring feel.

Hope you like this “little” project as much as I do and thanks for joining me today.

Hippity Hoppity Easter Time

Happy Sunday 🙂

While snow finally covers the ground here in Denmark, there is no denying that Spring is on the way. Yes we got our portion of snow really late this year – but we got it so I’m happy 🙂

We are now in the month of March and this year that means the Easter month. I guess that is why this little fella decided to move in with us – Bunny 3D Spheres Figure from SnapDragon Snippets.

DSC_0012

He is made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and Black along with glitter paper in Pink and Doodlebug Design paper ” Easter Parade”. The small jewel is from my stash and I dotted his eyes with a white Sharpie. You can find the tutorial for him here

He is so ready to meet all the other Easter creatures around the house and I bet there is going to be some new additions this year too.

Thanks for joining me today – hope your weekend is awesome and that you get a lot of spring crafting done. 🙂

Springtime Love

Hello and a very happy Sunday to you 🙂

Do you feel it too? Spring is on the way 🙂 The days are getting longer, the light is returning with all the little flowers….the snow is melting away (if you had any….don’t get me started) Yup the signs are all there….even if it might take some time yet to call it Spring.

Well that doesn’t mean that you can’t have Spring inside the house. And in my home, I have started decorating for Spring. That is way I needed to make this adorable Candle Heart Cutout 3D Boxes from SnapDragon Snippets.

DSC_0002

I used AC Cardstock in White along with patterned paper from Maja Design “Celebration” Then I tied some hemp cord around it and decorated with some Prima flowers from my stash and a little 3D butterfly sticker I also found hiding in my craft supplies.

DSC_0008

It may not look like it, but it was totally easy to make and assemble – even if you are new to paper crafting and Jodi, who designed this, has a great tutorial for you to follow. It’s so versatile – can be used for Mothers Day, Valentines Day, Birthdays, Weddings etc.

Well I’m off to unpacking after a 3 day trip to Amsterdam with my family – a fun but very busy little trip.

Thanks for joining me today

 

Winter Kisses

Thanks for joining me today 🙂 Just wanna show a little something I made inspired by all the love floating around these days and yet I want to keep it un-Valentined 😀

The other day I went shopping on a Danish webshop that sells American candies among other stuff and I found some Hersheys Kisses. That made me think of the Chocolate Kiss 3D Box from SnapDragon Snippets and voila!

DSC_0010

This baby is so incredible easy to make! I used some grey pearl cardstock and AC Cardstock in Chocolate to make the box and made and added on some panels in silver foiled paper, that I embossed with a crackled pattern. Then I made the tag with the print and cut function on my Silhouette Cameo along with the small cute winter images that I clued onto the chocolate. I found these in the Silhouette Design Store id #70871 and #70219.

Just the thing for a winter-lover like me 🙂

Now I need to hide the rest of the kisses, cause my eldest son has now developed a taste for them.

Have an awesome weekend – hope you get a lot of crafting done 🙂

 

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

Hello and Happy Sunday!

Welcoming February and hoping it will bring some snow. Oh I miss snow! Winter in Denmark is not what it once was. Back in the ’80ties we had some huge snowstorms….and a couple in the ’90ties too but now it’s just rain, wind and a whole lot of grey 😦

Maybe my need for snow is what gave me this idea for the Wardrobe 3D Box Decor (this file comes in two parts) from Snapdragon Snippets

DSC_0010

Remember the tale of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and how the kids went to a magical land inside the wardrobe? – There was snow!!!

I just knew that was what I was going to make of the wardrobe.

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut  and wood patterned paper to make the wardrobe and I found some hinges from Tim Holtz, a lock also from Tim Holtz, a drawer handle and some metal ornaments to decorate with.

DSC_0016

I also made a little sign to point to the direction of Narnia – the Magical land inside the Wardrobe

DSC_0014

The handle on the door is made from a metal ornament on which I glued a black resin flower.

Finally I decorated  the top of the drawer with a ornament frame in metal with a picture of Aslan – “the Great Lion of Narnia” as another clue to my wardrobe.

DSC_0012

Now my only wish is to be able to disappear into the wardrobe to experience the gorgeous wintery forrest that hides behind the door.

Thanks for joining me today – I hope to see lots of other versions of this wonderful Wardrobe box that Jodi G. Warner made and please remember to let me know what you think of this project.

Carnival, Shrovetide or Fastelavn….

…..a dear child has many names 😉

This is the next celebration here in Denmark. It usually falls in the School Winter Holiday week 7 and is celebrated mostly by children. It wasn’t always so, but that’s another story – Google will tell you all about it. It’s actually quite interesting 🙂

Fastelavn or Carnival is celebrated by dressing up and going house to house singing a little song about getting buns (special cake-type bun usually a Danish 😉 ). If the kids don’t get a bun, candy or money, they will make trouble. It’s kinda like Trick or Treating.

The homes are decorated with Fastelavnsris which are bouquets of Willow branches, decorated with paper cats and colorful paper strips. The story about the Fastelavnsris is that if the parents sleep to late on Fastelavn morning, the children can whip them with it – yikes!

Another fun tradition is “Beat the cat of the Barrel” A barrel filled with candy (in the old days they put a living cat in there – the monsters!!!) and hung from the celling and the kids take turn beating on it with a stick (kinda like a baseball bat) until the barrel breaks and all the candy falls out. The kid who breaks the barrel is crowned Cat King and the kid that makes the barrel fall to the ground is growed Cat Queen.

Oh wow….that was a long explanation of Fastelavn…..and now I get to the point 😀

I made some decor for Fastelavn this year…..it’s been a while since I’ve done that but I just had to. It spoke to me 😀

The gorgeous Masquerade 3d Embellished Mask from Jodi G. Warner of SVG Attic and SnapDragon Snippets. (find it in Silhouette Design Store or at SnapDragon Snippets)

DSC_0004

This was great fun to make especially decorating it 🙂

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Midnight Masquerade. I also used glitter paper in pink and turquoise.

DSC_0008

I decorated it with some matching flowers from Prima that happened to be in my stash along with some different matching ribbons and rhinestones. I really got to see what I have stashed away, looking for the right embellishments – but that’s ok because it sparks new ideas 😉

DSC_0006

DSC_0010

I feared that the mask would be hard to assemble but it just flew together – no trouble at all.

So now I have the first piece ready for February when the “Carnival comes to town” 🙂

Thanks for visiting – hope you made it all the way through the post and didn’t get lost in my ramblings of Fastelavn 😀

 

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:

DSC_0003

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 😉
