Tiny Freebies 2.0

I am amazed of how many cute freebies are out there – just for the taking. I mean – the designer put in a lot of effort in it, just to give it away. If that isn’t generosity, I don’t know what is.

Now go grab a cuppa – this is a bit long 😀

Today I want to show some more tiny and not so tiny freebies I found and made and I want to start off with the not so tiny freebies 😀

This one has a bit of a story to it as my neighbors – the kindest, nicest people ever – has a bit funny last name and going through an add for a supermarket yesterday, I found a red wine with …. well their last name on it. So I just had to buy it and give it to them….because of the name 😀

Their last name is Barfod (Barefoot) and it means the same – naked foot 🙂 So it couldn’t be anymore perfect 🙂

So here is where the freebie comes into the picture; I made the Elegant Grapes Gift Tag freebie from SVGCuts to tie onto the bottle. The tag is enlarged somewhat to fit the bottle.

I made it from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Olive, Wine, Eggplant, Pansy and Plum and I doodled some reflections onto the grapes with a white Sharpie. Then I tied it onto the bottle with some raffia and it’s ready to go next door 🙂

Next I made a Spring Picture using the Tulip with Frame freebie (found under square frames) and Label 8 freebie (found under Labels) from Bird’s Cards:

This made from AC Cardstock in Banana, Spinach, Peacock and Turf along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Fairie Dust” collection and some purple pearl paper.

I made the Tulip frame larger to fit into the shadow box (from IKEA) and enlarged the label as well to fix the scale.

I added pop dots to the tulips flower head for dimension and to the top layer of the tag as well.

The quote is written with a Silhouette Sketch pen – the text is tripled and placed side to side very close to make it more visible.

Finally I added a small bird into the shadowbox frame along with the picture and it is so cute.

And now to the tiny freebies 🙂

Let’s start of with the Cozy Socks Gift Box freebie from SVGCuts

I downsized it by 50% and since socks doesn’t fit into a box this small, I used some Werther’s Original candies instead. After I had put in the acetate window, I realized it could also be used for small paper tissues 😀

I used AC Cardstock in Black along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Artisan Style” collection and a small piece of acetate for the window.

A cute, simple and very easy box to make – especially if you’re making lots.

Then I made the very cute Tote Bag freebie from Bird’s Cards:

This one is downsized by 25% and is made of AC Cardstock in Wave along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Sun Kissed” collection.

I chose to make panels for the inside of the bag too and tied two small sea shell charms onto the bag with a ball chain.

Just perfect for a gift card or maybe for the kids’ beach keepsakes 😉

I also made the same bag downsized by 50%:

This one is pretty small and I thought it would be awesome as a place card for the Summer party or Confirmation.

It’s made of AC Cardstock in Wave and patterned paper also from Graphic 45’s “Sun Kissed” collection.

I fussy cut the sea turtle and pop dotted him onto the bag.

The tag is actually also a freebie from Bird and I used a sketch pen to write the name onto it and some twine to tie it to the bag handle with a pop dot on the back 😉

The next freebie has kinda the same theme going on:

This is the Clamshell Box freebie from Simply Crafty Svgs and this is the original size!

I used AC Cardstock in Grape Fruit along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “By the Sea” collection. The small gem is from Prima.

A very cute and useful freebie that can also be used for sea shells or maybe some other beach treasures.

Finally I made the gorgeous Night & Day Trinket Box freebie from Dreaming Tree:

This was the perfect design to used with the Graphic 45 “Midnight Masquerade” collection paper along with glitter paper in Teal and Gold.

The box is downsized to 75% of the original size

A very easy box to make and what a cutie!!!

Well….that was it for today.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the freebies or actually….. I hope you WILL enjoy the freebies as I have and please don’t forget to leave me a small comment when you leave ❤

 

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 😛

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:

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)

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 ❤

My Punny Valentine

Happy Sunday and YAY! – We almost made it through January (for me one of the longest months of the year)

Today I want to share with you a little something I brewed together last night. Just something that hopped into my head as I was trying to find new projects to make.

As I’ve said before – I’m soooo not into Valentines Day. And I still ain’t but……I just couldn’t help myself on this little fellow:

The 3D To-Go-Coffee Cup is from SDS Coffee Break.

I made it from AC Cardstock in White and Chestnut and decorated it with a sleeve I made from Doodlebug Design Paper Cream & Sugar.

I also decorated the cup with some hearts – one is the Heart Zipper Ornament from SnapDragon Snippets that I made from AC Cardstock in Latte and decorated with Doodlebug Design Paper also from Cream & Sugar and used some grey and black shiny paper from the zipper. I just left out the back piece with the hole for hanging.

The other heart is just a duplicate of the Latte heart from above, where I wrote the sentiment with a Silhouette Sketch Pen in brown.

Now to hide it from that special someone who is going to receive this on Feb. 14th., because I love him as much as I do coffee. 😀

Thanks for joining me today and Happy Valentines Day to all of you who celebrate this day. 🙂

Come Rain or Come Shine……

…..from the Soundtrack of the Danish Summer. It has pretty much been the crappiest summer in history, but as I see it, not everything has been bad. The temperature has been very pleasant with a minimum of hot humid days and the sun has been know to shine on occasion 😀

This weather inspired me to make this Birthday card to a girlfriend of mine whose Birthday is here in August. It could easily have been made for a spring Birthday but that’s just my point – we have practically no seasons anymore. It’s either Spring or Fall – no more Summer or Winter.

The cute card is designed by Cyndy Gustashaw and is part of her Box Cards 2 Kit.

I used AC Cardstock in Lipgloss, Cricket, Robin’s Egg, Melon, Daffodil, Chestnut, Black and Bayou along with patterned paper from Doodlebug Design – Spring Time and Wood Grain patterned paper also from AC.

I inked all the edges with inkpads from Prima and used a white Silhouette Sketch Pen to write the sentiment (it says Congratulations in Danish) on the sign post.

Thanks for stopping by – hope you love the card as much as I do 🙂
