Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a Twist?

Hello – I’m back again this Sunday with more Halloween spookiness. This time from SVG Attic.

I really can’t decided whether it’s a Mad Hatter’s Hat or a Mourner’s Hat. It’s definitely a hat!

I wanted to make the Mourner’s Hat from the JGW Raven Quest kit this Halloween but as I progressed, the project changed due to my hyperactive brain. “I wonder if this can be done…..?” “Hmmmm can I do this…..?”

The answer: Yes! I did it. Presenting the Halloween Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a twist:DSC_0006

The hat is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Charcoal and inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink in White.

I made the panels and the little shelves myself with the Silhouette Software. The Panels are embossed with a Bark patterned embossing folder from Darice.

I made small holes in the back of each shelf for the light to shine through.

I added a scratch mark in one of the panels and backed it with vellum – also for light to shine through. I found it in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #118964 by Sophie Gallo.

Then I got busy decorating the hat with all sorts of nick nack Halloween style I could find in my stash.

The flowers are from Prima, several of the decor pieces are from Ideaology  and the gem swirls are from BoBunny.

I wrapped “Mummy Cloth” around the hat as a band and also around the bow.

One of the most awesome feature, is the Zombie Hand that holds the lantern. It’s also from Ideaology and I love it to bits….It’s so cool.

It’s pretty creepy in the dark:

How about a video??? :-O

…..and a night shot….. :-O

 

So what do you think? Let me know in a comment below and I’ll see you soon – thanks for joining me today.

Haunted Lantern

Hello and welcome back – yes it’s me again. Did I mention that I really love Halloween????

Ha ha once or twice maybe. Yes I love it and I love spookifying everything in sight.

This time it happen to the amazing Lantern 3D Hanging Floral Grille from the Pushing Petals Kit

DSC_0002

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal and Rouge along with some Bazzill Bling Cardstock in a light grey.

The blood border and bloody handprint are from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #223575 by Sophie Gallo and Design ID #98189 by Jamie Cripps)

The flowers are from Prima – some single ones that I just put together how I liked and the brads are from my rather large stash.

DSC_0004

The Cameo, spider and burlap bow are from Ideaology by Tim Holtz and the spider web is available everywhere these days I think LOL…..

It’s a very easy but detailed lantern to make – not that large but that’s how I like it. It looks awesome in my kitchen with some of my other Halloween decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today….more coming up soon so stay tuned!

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 ❤

More Christmas in July

Hello, – thanks for joining me today.

I want to show you a Christmas project I just made. Yes…..I want in on that Christmas in July too 😉

I’ve been meaning to make this one for a looooong time, but as you know, Jodi keeps putting awesome stuff out there so I got distracted, but now I finally succeeded.

The 3D Church Card Holder from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit:

DSC_0002

I made the Church in AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 papers from the Christmas Carol Collection.

DSC_0004

I inked all the edges with Chalk Ink from Ingvild Bolme and added a poinsettia from Prima to the front of the Church.

Now it’s ready come Christmas time for all the Christmas cards coming in from near or far……

….or simply as a Christmas decoration with lights in it.

Thank you for stopping by today and Ehm….Merry July Christmas 😀

Mother’s Day in the Garden

Hello, happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day.

There wasn’t a shadow of a doubt about what I wanted to show you today as it is Mother’s Day. The only thing that teased me, was what to choose as SVGAttic and SnapDragon Snippets has so many wonderful Mother’s Day files to choose from.

Not that my own Mother doesn’t enjoy the garden, she just has lots of other hobbies but I know a lot of Mothers out there thrive in the green and loves to get dirt under their nails, so I went with a garden theme.

And this is what I came up with:

DSC_0006

First of is the 3D Garden Hat that I made from AC Cardstock in Brown Sugar and Straw along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Botanical Tea” collection and two small silver colored eyelets.

I also decorated it with some Prima flowers from my stash in coordinating colors and a butterfly also from Prima.

This hat is very easy to make so it’s perfect for everybody both beginner paper crafters and the more advanced.

Next is the 3D Garden Spade:

DSC_0008

This one is also very easy to make and it’s so realistic,  I fear somebody’s going to bring it into the garden for shoveling 😀

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Botanical Tea” collection.

I also tied some pink twine on the handle.

Then I made a flower in a pot:

DSC_0011

This is a somewhat fantasy kind of a flower inspired by Hydrangeas.

For the flower itself I used ½ styrofoam ball on which I pinned several small flowers from the Flower Five Petal Leaf Cluster cut out in Graphic 45 patterned paper (Botanical Tea) As flower center I added small sequins.

The ball is then glued or pop-dotted onto a large flower from the SDS 3D Cake Box Kit (without the candle) cut in AC Cardstock in Bubblegum. Then I cut out some leaves from the Flower Five Petal Leaf Cluster in Cricket AC Cardstock and glued them underneath the flower and placed it onto the pot.

The Flower Ball Topiary 3D Pot is made from Vanilla AC Cardstock and decorated with “Botanical Tea” paper. For filler I used some Spanish Moss. Isn’t it cute?

This project is for the bit more advanced crafters but I really encourage everyone to try it 🙂

Last but not least I made the adorable Tea Cup 3D Container also from SnapDragon Snippets:

DSC_0014

The cup is cut from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 patterned paper “Botanical Tea”. The Tea Bag Tag is the small in the set and is cut from Graphic 45’s paper and decorated with a small chipboard tag from Graphic 45’s “Time to Flourish” collection and tied onto the cup with a length of scrap floss. Finally I added a Prima butterfly and filled the cup with sweets (chocolate covered roasted almonds)

This cup is rather large so if you’re not into spending a fortune on candy (like I did), you can fill some tissue paper into the cup first for filler 😉

And all together now 😉 :

So what do you think of this project? Let me know in a comment 🙂

Thanks for visiting today – I hope to see you again real soon ❤

Chocolate Favors…..and a Card.

Mmmmmm don’t you just love chocolates? I do and I also love giving it away – mostly so I won’t get any fatter from eating it 😀

Nahhhh…….in reality it’s because I think sweet people deserve something sweet and scrumptious once in a while and these cute Nugget Sleeves from Tracy Moon Rushton of Idea Closet are so darn clever and perfect for giving away such sweets.

Now living in Denmark makes it a bit difficult getting the exact same chocolates – the Hershey’s Nuggets – but I found an alternative that almost fit the same size: Anthon Berg Mini Marzipan Bars 😛

DSC_0027

Just think of the possibilities in making these sleeves….They are endless! This is just one suggestion but I see packets with baby pictures or company names on it!

I made it from AC Cardstock in white and Basic Grey patterned paper “Lemonade” (Really old collection) The flowers are from Prima and the small dots are from Doodlebug Design 🙂

This is the tag to fit the sleeve:

DSC_0028

I also made the darling A2 Layered Roses Card from Idea Closet:

DSC_0026

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Pool, Grapefruit, Peach, Banana and Robin’s Egg along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Cafe Parisian”

I used my Epiphany Shape tool 1/2″ round to make the three small epoxy charms in the top of the card and used Doodlebug dots for the flower centers. All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink pads from Prima.

To match the card I also made a small sleeve for three bars:

DSC_0025

Made in AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with “Cafe Parisian” paper it matches perfectly.

The butterflies are cut out of the same paper and so is the tag that reads: “Au Chocolat” (made of chocolate)

DSC_0029

For both tags, I used the Silhouette Sketch pens and sketch feature to write the sentiment as my own handwriting is awful (should have been a doctor…..)

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you enjoyed the pictures…..please let me know ❤

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:

DSC_0002

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 😉

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 😀

 

Egg-stravagant Baskets……

So glad you decided to come join me today, as I want to show you the most darling little Easter Egg Baskets I made.

All of these baskets are designed by the very talented Tracey Moon Rushton of Idea Closet and can be purchased  here

Let’s start off with the smallest – the Chocolate Egg Basket Single:

DSC_0008

 

Next is the Chocolate Egg Basket Double that holds two eggs:

DSC_0010

 

And the largest of the baskets, the Chocolate Egg Basket 4 pack that holds 4 eggs:

DSC_0006

 

For my versions of the baskets, I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden”.

I cut out extra panels for the inside of the baskets and decorated them with various flowers from Prima and chipboard tags also from Graphic 45.

Finally I put in plastic eggs that I decorated with paper borders and Prima flowers + small gems as flower centers, since I haven’t gotten to buying any eggs for them yet 😮

The baskets also comes in a handy bundle if you decide to get all three baskets at once

That was all for now – feels like I’m not quite done with Easter just yet 😉 Stay tuned for more……
