What happens if……

…..you want to make a cake for your Sister who’s turning 49 and insist that there be 49 candles on the cake?

I tell you what happens…..the darn thing catches on fire! 😀 49 candles on a cake – even on a layered cake – is a heck of a lot 😀

Luckily this is only a paper cake…..

Ok….the fire isn’t real either 😀

Phew! 😉

IMG_6546

This is the new Topsy Turvy Cake from Simply Crafty Svgs totally covered with the 49 candles. I used the candles from the Birthday Cake and downsized them to 75% of the original. The candle on top is #49 and is in original size 😉

IMG_6543

49 candles is a LOT of assembling 😉

I used AC cardstock in bright rainbow colors and patterned paper from DCWV’s Rainbow Splash Stack. I LOVE color….can you tell?

IMG_6547

I also made flames in different sizes and color to put here and there on the cake. I found it in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #2830 by Silhouette.

I also found the fun little Stick Figures in there design ID #29027 by Snapdragon Snippets and these help tell a little funny story about the fire 😉 These are cut from black Pearl Paper.

IMG_6553

This little guy is trying to out run the flames…..

IMG_6551

….while this one is trying to help his buddy who’s hanging on for dear life.

IMG_6550

Here is one hanging on a candle while his friend lost his grib and has fallen off the cake plate….poor little guy 😦

IMG_6548

These guys are working hard on trying to put out the fire but the fire extinguisher (from the Light the Candles Card also by Simply Crafty Svgs) is way to large for them so they have to climb up to reach the handle – one is already there and another one is trying with the help of his friend. They have it going cause one little dude is blown away by the foam spray and one candle is almost put out. One little guy is not so lucky because he’s hanging off the side of the cake with his head on fire 😮

IMG_6541

I saw that these guys needed help so I made a fire truck to come and hose down the fire. I found this in the Silhouette Design Store as well design ID #62496 also by Snapdragon Snippets. I down sized it to 50% and as you can see, it’s tiny! But the ladder is working…..

IMG_6554

…..and soon help is on the way as one guy is operating the truck while his co-worker is running off the ladder to help all the guys in need.

Unfortunently they forgot their firehose and the truck has caught on fire 😮

Good thing is only paper….right? Imagine what 49 real candles can do? 😮

Happy 49th Birthday Sis (when the day comes) Now you know what coming to you 😉

Thanks for joining me today. What do you think of my crazy project? I mean….who makes 49 candles???? Please let me know in a comment below

Wishing Ewe….

Today I’m back with a little wooly project that fits all kinds of celebrations.

The digi stamp I used this time, is sponsored by:

proud sponsorBugaboo

With Mother’s Day coming up and lots of Birthdays etc. I thought it fitting to make a little box that can hold a chocolate bar. Who doesn’t love to receive chocolate?
My choice fell on the 3D Mummy Candy Box designed by Jamie Cripps (Silhouette Design Store design ID #68840) but only the box itself, so I stripped it of all the unnecessary parts and added a panel with the darling digi stamp Wishing Ewe.
The background on the panel is also one I found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #22287 by Rivka Wilkins.

I colored in the stamp with Promarkers along with a grey Sharpie, a glittery Gelly Roll and a white Sharpie for the eye highlights.

I also added a few enamels dots for a little something extra.

Then I put the chocolate bare inside…..

….and it’s ready to be given away to someone special.

Thanks for joining me today ❤

Mom’s Le Chef

One thing I didn’t sign up for when becoming a mom, was the constant questions: What’s for dinner? When’s dinner? Or having to cook more than more meal cause the kids can’t eat the same food – *SIGH* Bet I’m not the only one.

It doesn’t help when cooking is my least favorite thing to do. I really wish I could hire someone to do it for me 😀 Like my sister for instance. She used to be a Chef and is making the most delicious and healthy food.

This dilemma is what inspired this Simply Crafty SVGs project – the Chef Hat:

Kokkehue

This hat is actually a box and I did make it as such. It will come in handy if I give it away. Right now it’s sitting on a kitchen shelf for a bit of amusement 😉

I made it from AC Cardstock and used the Print and Cut feature in my Silhouette software to make the text on the panel. This is one I found in the Silhouette Design Store ID #139760 by Sophie Gallo.

I bet we’re going to get a kick out of it 😀

Thanks for joining me today 🙂 What do think of this project? Let me know in a comment below and remember to come back real soon!

The Secret Lives of the Cracked Chick

Ok so I had a lot of fun with the Cracked Chick from Simply Crafty Svgs even though I was only going to make a few for my Easter decorations. My vivid imagination took over and went insane. Not only did I make some funny Chicks but I had to make some funny pictures as well. They just might be manipulated a tiny bit 😉 oh and all chicks are downsized by 50%. No animals were harmed in the process 😉

My original idea was to make the chick in a few cute versions and one of them was a little girlie Chick. Just hatched and the remaining shell lying right beside her:

IMG_634611_InPixio_InPixio

Ok so she’s a bit cross eyed and properbly not your typical little cute Easter Chick but she loves colors and wanted to pose in a pile of feathers.

The bottom shell piece is made by enlarging the shell hat of the Chick and making it a bit longer. It’s just for show.

I used an embossing folder from Darice with a cracked pattern – perfect for a cracked egg shell.

I used a white sharpie to make reflexes in her eyes and nose and the flower is one I happened to have in my stash.

That’s when things got a bit out of hand. 😀

I noticed that the Sailor Hat from SCS would fit if downsized to the right measurement and if the Chick was a sailor, he would need a boat sooooo:

IMG_634711_InPixio

…he got a boat. Made from the Fishing Boat Box, I created a sail boat by adding a pole, sail and flag. These are found in the Silhouette Design Store ID #100976 by Snapdragon Snippets and ID #61978 by Carta Bella.

I used a wood grain patterned embossing folder for the panels and sanded them slightly to make the pattern show more. Then I added a net and some starfish from my stash along with the lifesaver and oars with comes with the Fishing Boat Box file.

Now he’s a happy little sailing Sailor Chick 😀

One of my original ideas was to used the Chef Hat also from SCS to make a Chef Chick but that didn’t work out as planned. The hat was too large for the chick but the top part of the hat fit and making the chick in brown like made out of chocolate…..

IMG_634911_InPixio

…. I had my very own Aladdin Chick on a Magic Carpet.

The Top part looks exactly like a Turban and the carpet I made for him, is found in the Silhouette Design Store (design ID #85512 by Studio Ilustrado) I just added a panel on top and bend it a bit here and there for the flying look. I used patterned paper from DCWV’s Luxe Lodge Stack.

Then I added a feather and a gem to the Turban and Aladdin was ready to fly.

So once again my imagination got to run wild and I’ve had a very fun evening and morning making these cuties.

Let me know in a comment below if you like these wacky chicks and I wish you a Happy Easter – thanks for visiting

Hanging Easter Eggs

Next week Easter begins and usually I decorate a bit for the Holiday but this year I can’t find my stuff after the move. So I figured I would make a thing or two this year.

My DT assignment this time was these two Easter Eggs made by Annie Collins (These are available via Anne Ingram in The Multi Crafters Craft Cafe Albums):

Easter_Eggs w watermark

I printed two sets out and colored them in with my Promarkers and then used the Print ‘n Cut setting on my Silhouette Cameo, to cut them out.

Then I made an offset of the eggs and cut out two of each in AC Cardstock.

I found two cute Egg Doilies in the Silhouette Design Store design ID # 40140 designed by Megan Hardy and cut both out of Pearl Paper in pastel colors matching those of the offset cutouts.

Finally I glued the digi stamps onto the offset cutouts and glued one on each side of the Egg Doilies and voila….two new hanging Easter Eggs.

One in pastel purple/pink:

Ophæng 1

And the other in Pastel blue/Ocean Blue:

Ophæng 2

These are pretty big but it’s very easy to downsize them so they could hang from a branch in your Easter Decoration.

Thanks for joining me today – please let me know in a comment if you liked this project and then I want to wish you a Happy Easter – stay safe.

 

Love Monsters

Today it’s my turn to show a little DT project for the Coffee Beans Design Team and the Love Monsters digi stamp I’ve used is sponored by:

proud sponsorBugaboo

This time I made a Flip Flap Card that I found in the Silhouette Design Store ID #136973 by Lori Whitlock and I used the cute Love Monsters digi Stamp.

Lovemonsters1

I got the idea of the little monsters being caught inside the jar, ready to be given to someone special either as a Mother’s Day card or maybe (in these crazy times) as Get Better Card. No matter the occasion, these darlings are sure to bring the message of love 🙂

I used AC Cardstock, pattern paper from Doodlebug Design’s Fairytales Collection and a piece of Acetate (doesn’t show at all on this picture). The lid is made from Bazzill Bling Cardstock.

I colored in the stamp with Promarkers.

Lovemonsters2

Now it’s ready to be shipped of to someone special.

Thanks for joining me today – please leave a comment below if you like this card.

Bunny on Cloud Nine

I’ve been looking forward to today as I can now reveal that I’m a new member on the Coffee Beans Design Team. I am very excited to be here and hope to bring something new and fresh to the team if possible.

Today I want to start out with not one…..not two…..but three projects I made with the darling digi stamp Easter Bunny Hot Air Balloon from Bugaboo Stamps.proud sponsorBugaboo

For all three projects I used the trace and the offset options in my Silhouette Studio software and print and cut the images. Then I colored them in by hand.

First of is a cute 3D picture:

Billede

This cute picture is one I found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #141563 (by Daniela Moscone) and it’s made from AC Cardstock.
I simply switched out the ballon with the digi stamp that I’ve colored in with Promarkers.

The frame is given extra dimension by using foam tape and the bunny plus the little piece of cloud is secured with 3D dots.

Next is an Easel Card:

Easel kort

This card is also one I found in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #57245 (by Lori Whitlock) and it’s also made from AC Cardstock.

The background is a print and cut that fits so well with the stamp.

I colored in the stamp with Sharpies and pop-dotted a small cloud on the right.

A very easy and fun little card for someone special.

Finally I made a Gift Card Gift Bag:

Gavepose

This is also a Silhouette Design Store fil – Design ID #162508 (by Lori Whitlock) and this too is made from AC Cardstock + some acetate.

This little bag is also dimensional as the bunny kinda floats inside in a little scene. Candy can be put in there too for more fun. Behind the bunny is a little insert/pocket for a gift card. The little cloud on the outside of the bag, is adhered with a pop-dot.

This time I also used Promarkers to color in the bunny and I do find these easier to work with.

So these are my three projects using the same digi stamp.

This is deff.  some what out of my usual way of paper crafting but I do love a challenge. What do you think? Which one is your favorite?

Thank you so much for joining me today – hope to see you again tomorrow ❤

Super Bowl

Now there’s a headline I never thought I’d write! 😀

I’m so not interested in watching sports what so ever. To me it’s something you do and not something you watch on TV. It’s just too boring.

Sunday February 2nd., I’m told, is Super Bowl Sunday in the US and a girlfriend of mine loves it. She’s been helping me out quite a lot with the move, so now it’s payback time 😉

I’ve made her Football stuff before but when I saw the new cool Football files from Simply Crafty Svgs, I knew I had to make them for her – so I did.

Let’s start with the smallest first – the Mini Football Treat Box (Freebie):

DSC_0004

I made two – one for my friend and one for her brother, who will be watching the game with her.

Made from Gold Glitter paper from Recollections, White Glitter paper from Craft Smith and black POW Glitter paper from AC along with a Print and Cut sentiment that I ran through my Minc to add Gold Foil. The tag is tied to the box with a piece of hemp cord.

Very easy and I’m very surprised how well the glitter paper took to the glue. Now I just have to find some little treat to put inside…..

Next is the Football Goal Post Box:

DSC_0009

This very fun and inventive treat box, is made from AC Cardstock, White Glitter paper from Recollections and Green Glitter paper from DCWV Inc + a small piece of acetate.

It was very easy to assemble and I didn’t watch the video until after I made it 😀 As you can see I did make an error but I thought the slits in the Football was to hold the acetate and not guidelines for the white end pieces. Go figure! Oh well – it works just fine 🙂

DSC_0010

The Foam Finger (ID #241075 by Photoplay) and the Pennant (ID #283540 by Lisa Norris) are both from the Silhouette Design Store. I made them as Print and Cut and ran them through the Minc to add the Gold Foil. Not perfectly covered but I blame my printer being too cheap 😀 I did make a back side too with out graphic so I could sandwich a toothpick in between.

DSC_0011

Finally for the Football Helmet:

DSC_0005

This is also a treat box and I put some crackers inside for the two to munch on.

DSC_0007

It’s made from AC Cardstock, Gold and White Glitter paper from Recollections and Black POW from AC.

I’m really surprised how easy this was to make. I did watch Sandy’s video as I believed it would be harder to assemble, but no. Very easy and such a cool design too. I’m so impressed with her inventive and amazing ideas.

I chose the gold color for the treat box and helmet as I have no idea what team she roots on, who would make it to the finals or how any of the teams’ logos look like 😀 heh heh Gold is for winners – right?

DSC_0002

These were so much fun to make and as I ran out of time, I didn’t have time to ink the edges – but you can’t really tell….or? 😉

I really hope she and her brother will love these and the goodies I’ll put inside and that they will have a cozy and enjoyable Sunday night/Monday morning 😉

Thanks for joining me today. I’ve enjoyed seeing all the Helmets and boxes already made by lots of people – hope you enjoy mine.

See you next time ❤

 

Advent Gift Box

Most of us know and love the Christmas Countdown Calendar. The exiting and magical feeling when opening a new door every day and unwrapping the gift or piece of candy inside. Yes, I still do that 😉

In Denmark we also count the 4 Sundays before Christmas – Sunday in Advent and for some this is when they get their present. In my home my kids get to chose if they want a small thing every day until Christmas or something larger every Sunday. They’ve gone with the latter 😉

I thought that when bringing a hostess gift along when visiting friends or Family this November, it could be a Advent Gift Box and I found just the things for it at Simply Crafty Svgs.

DSC_0006

This is the Square Candy Box. Just the perfect size for my idea 🙂

I made it with AC Cardstock in Slate, White and Shrimp along with patterned paper from DCWVs Merry and Bright stack.

I needed inserts to divide it into four, so I simply adjusted the inserts and added two more to put my small Curved Treat Boxes (freebie) in.

DSC_0010

I used the Foil Quill and cobber foil for the numbers (Silhouette Design Store ID #105652 by Sarah Hurley) and tied them onto the small boxes (downsized to 70% to fit all 4 on one piece of cardstock)

Inside the treat boxes I hid the treats 😉 Yummy chocolate from Danish Royal Court Supplier Anton Berg.

DSC_0003

The last thing I want to mention is the twine used to wrap around the box and the small tag that I cut out of the DCWV stack.

This surely is a bold color for Christmas but I love it and I bet whom ever gets this box is going to love it too.

I’m so sorry for the quality of the pictures but it’s practically impossible to get good lighting here in my new townhouse this time of year and I still have to get myself some professional lights – when that million bucks lands in my mailbox 😉

Thanks for joining me today. So much fun to begin the Christmas crafting. I have soooo much I wanna make and soooo little time 😀 How about you? Have you begun your Christmas crafting yet?

The Gypsy Fortune Teller

I admit it. I’m not a religious person but the Occult and Mysterious has always fascinated me. I guess I wonder if there’s more out there than what we can see and understand. I do believe in Science but sometimes things happen that Science can have a hard time explaining. It’s not that I’m gullable or naive and believe in Ghosts and Spirits  – I’m actually very sceptic – but sometimes things just makes you wonder.

Like Psychics and Fortune Tellers – I know that most of them are frauds but sometimes one gets it totally right or finds the missing person (or what ever they are doing). It can’t be explained and that is fascinating.

So you can guess that I find Gypsies fascinating and this fascination was what I wanted to put into my latest DT for Simple Crafty SVGs. Sandy just made a Vardo Wagon and BINGO…..now turned into a Gypsy Fortune Teller’s Wagon:


DSC_0004

This little cutie is downsized by 50% and still very easy to make.

I used AC Cardstock, Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Stock and Prima “Moon Child” patterned paper (so perfect for this project). I used a Teal Colored Vellum behind the windows

The flowers, leaves and gems are also from Prima, the Pumpkin and Doll are from Ideaology and the sign is a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store (ID #13551 by Loni Stevens)

The roof is embossed with a Sizzix Embossing folder with a Iron Plate Pattern and all edges are inked with Distress Ink.

This is so darling in this reduced size, great for a LED Tealight and goes perfectly with my small downsized houses that I’m still making more of – but that is for another post 😉

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really hope you love this Vardo Gypsy Fortune Teller’s Wagon as much as me. Tell me all about it in a comment below and have a great and crafty Monday. Let’s hope it turns out to be one of the good ones 😉
