RUST 😉

Hello – so glad you chose to visit my blog today 🙂

Just popping in with a small post, to show you the cute, fun and awesome not to mention vintage Pickup Truck from Simply Crafty Svgs, I made last night:

DSC_0007

This adorable pile of rust is made from AC Cardstock in Cranberry, Black and White and decorated with Silver Mercury Glass Cardstock from DCWV.

The headlights are two large gems from my stash that just fitted perfectly and the license plate is made using the Silhouette Sketch pen function with my Silhouette Cameo.

Here’s a rear view:

The tail lights are also two gems from my stash. The back end is decorated with a panel embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

And a sideview:

To achieve the rusty look, I rubbed some Copper Metallique Wax on all edges and smudged on here and there too.

This truck is surprisingly easy to make – just follow along the great tutorial video Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs made.

Such a truck needs loads of gas, so I had to make the  Vintage Gas Pump from Cre8tive Cutz too:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Pomegranate, Black and Vanilla along with a dark grey Bling Cardstock from Bazzill. This too was smudged in Metallique Wax

The hose is a piece of Hemp cord from my stash – I just love these small awesome details on the pump ❤

And here they are together:

This was a really fun and easy project to make. The truck was a bit time consuming but it has the coolest details and I really encourage you to have a go! So much more easy than it looks. Just imagine this one for Autumn with pumpkins in the back or for Christmas – driving home with the tree 😉

Thanks for stopping by today – hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you are inspired to go make your own now 🙂

 

Fish for Father

Hello again – I’m so happy to see you 🙂

Today it’s all about Father’s Day and fishing. These two go together like horse and carriage in most families – just not in mine. I mean my Dad was fond of fishing but my hubby does not want to go anywhere near a pond or hold a pole in his hand (he’s so weird) Me, on the other hand, has a great love for fishing. It’s so relaxing and exciting at the same time and the quiet around the pond – ahhhh just love it. Only problem I have, is getting the fish off the hook. YUK! I cannot touch the darn thing or kill it. So that’s where I need hubby to tag along when we go fishing. My boys are just as screamish as me so that leaves – Dad/Hubby.

Well I guess I had my own Dad in mind when I decided on making this project. In remembrance of him and all the fishing trips we took in my childhood.

Well enough with the yapping – here comes the good stuff:

DSC_0025

Every fisherman (or woman) needs a good basket or Creel to hold the fish he or she catches, and the Fishing Creel 3D Box from SVGAttic’s JGW Gone Fishing kit is just the thing.

I made it from AC Cardstock in Latte, Caramel and Coffee along with some silver pearl paper.

I also used Prima Metallic Wax Rich Copper on the edges instead of ink for a fun effect.

The brads, holding the handle and latch, are from Tim Holtz and the latch strap is made of faux leather from Cricut.

One also needs a good tackle box and the JGW Gone Fishing kit has that too:

DSC_0027

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Mint, Robbin’s Egg and Fireberry and decorated with patterned paper from a really old collection by Cosmo Cricket “Snorkel” (just because I loved the fishies)

The edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink, the brads are from Tim Holtz and so is the tiny tag with the fitting sentiment on it.

Both of these boxes were so easy to make. Just follow the instructions from Jodi here and here.

What’s a fisher with out a good hat?

DSC_0029

This cute Fisherman’s Bucket Hat Favor Box from SnapDragon Snippets is a necesity for the fisher as it holds several hooks, bobber, lure and fly and it can hold treats as well.

I made it from AC Cardstock in Olive, Robbin’s Egg, Black, Fireberry, Cranberry, Vanilla and Truffle along with patterned paper from another oldie by Cosmo Cricket “Mr Campy”.

I also used some sienna colored eyelets and some scrapper floss in tan and all the edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks. The tag is one I made using the Print ‘n Cut function on my Silhouette Cameo.

This one is a bit more tricky to make but not difficult at all – just more parts to keep a hold of.

How about the Fisherman himself?:

DSC_0021

This good looking fellow is the Fisherman Canister from SVGAttics JGW Summer Canisters kit. He is made from AC Cardstock in Olive, Caramel, Mint, Coffee, Robin’s Egg, Peacock, White, Vanilla, Black, Fireberry, Cranberry, Rosebud, Blush, Latte and Leaf along with patterned paper from the “Mr Campy” collection and Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I also used eyelets on the hat and scrapper floss to hang the bobber on his vest and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks.

Super fun and super easy to make.

Finally, to top it all of, is a card:

DSC_0023

This card is also included in the JGW Gone Fishing kit from SVGAttic and is called “Fishing Vest Card”

I used AC Cardstock in Caramel, Truffle, Coffee, Cranberry, Fireberry, Black and Vanilla along with patterned paper from the “Mr Campy” collection and Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I was lazy (in reality I’m just really horrible at sewing) and drew the stitches onto the vest instead of sewing them using my Silhouette Cameo sketch pen.

All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks and dots are from Prima.

 

Luckily I managed to get the Fishing Pole 3D Magnetic Toy done too:

DSC_0011

Originally I had all the other things done but then I saw Jodi had made this magnificent Fishing Pole and I just couldn’t bear it not being a part of this Father’s Day set. The most cool thing about this one is that it actually works….Even my teenager is impressed!!!

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Fireberry, Coffee, Black, Cranberry and Vanilla along with the patterned paper from the “Mr. Campy” collection. The grip overlay is made from Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzil along with the outer most layer of the left and right wheel layer.

Check out the assembly tutorial here

The Bobber is made from two halves that I glued together and wrapped some black washi tape around the middle.

This is a very fun project to make. I really love how Jodi’s head works and how she makes her ideas come to life. Such cool mechanisms.

There you have it – the whole chabang (minus the Fishing Pole):

DSC_0031

I’m pretty sure my Dad would have loved this set and I really hope that you do too. I think I have to go out and find a Dad, that loves fishing, and give him this set – know anybody?

Thanks for stopping by today. Father’s Day is celebrated in Denmark on June 5th which is also our Constitution Day so a few days ahead of the US. So Happy Fathers Day to you on the 17th of June.

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 😀

DSC_0007

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.

DSC_0005

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:

DSC_0011

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

DSC_0029

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:

DSC_0021

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%:

DSC_0025

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:

DSC_0023

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:

DSC_0033

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 😛

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 ❤

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:

DSC_0014

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.

untitled

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 🙂
