You Trick, I Treat!

Hello – so happy that you decided to visit my blog today 🙂

I have some fun projects to show you – Halloween of course 😉

Very recently Sandy of Simply Crafty SVGs released a series of K Cup Holders and instantly I started wondering about how to make something else with these. We don’t have K Cups in Denmark (all kinds of other Coffee Capsules though) so what could I put in these awesome holders?

Well change the size of the holes in them and they will fit perfectly for Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

And dress them in Halloween papers – then Voila! Ready to go! Perfect for Trick or Treaters or maybe as a hostess gift.

First of is the K Cup Holder (2 Cup) :

I made this funny and kid-friendly….kind of 😉

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Chocolate, Latte and Melon, red and white pearl paper and decorated with Doodlebug Paper “BooVille” and some Doodlebug Sprinkles that matched.

The little owl whoooo(‘s) missing his eyes, is from the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #31986 (designed by Susie Hildebrandt)

DSC_0010

I found the tag and text in the Silhouette Design Store too – Tag: Design ID #31986 (designed by Sweet Afton) and text: Design ID #66686 (designed by Sandi Idleman) I used a white sketchpen to draw on the tag.

I used some red/white twine to tied the tag onto the holder.

Cute right? 🙂

Next I made a little more adult holder:

This is the same holder as before and for this one I used AC Cardstock in Black and Melon, Bazzill Swiss Dot Paper in Green and decorated with Bobunny paper “Wonderfully Wicked” and white and green pearl paper.

The Toads I found in the Cricut design Store (from the Potions and Spells Cartridge)

DSC_0005

The label – Wart of Toad – I found online. There are thousands so take your pick! It’s a print and cut label.

DSC_0006

I decided to keep using the tag and text from before – just seems so fitting. This one is decorated with some Doodlebug Sprinkles in Matte and matching colors. I used green and white twine for tying the label onto the holder.

Finally I made the Triangles K Cup Holder:

DSC_0001

This one is also a bit more adult and so much fun due to the shape 🙂

I used AC Cardstock in Black for this one, white and copper colored pearl paper and patterned paper from Making Memories – “Spellbound” (very old collection)

This holder was of course a bit more challenging to assemble but not hard at all.

DSC_0002

This label is also one I found online – those chocolates could look like brains especially without the paper 😀

DSC_0003

Of course I used the same tag again and the tiny spider is from Doodlebug. It’s tied with white and black twine.

So I had fun with these K Cup Holders and found another use for them. I can’t wait to see what YOU come up with!

Thanks for visiting today – more Halloween coming up soon 😀

These little lights of mine…..

…..I’m definitely gonna let them shine! 😉

Hi 🙂 So glad to see you and thank you for joining me today.

It’s really fun when one thing can turn into three – H.C. Andersen did write that one feather turned into five hens but in this case, one lantern turns into three 😉 I used the Square Classic Lantern SVG from Simply Crafty SVGs.

All of these lanterns are downsized by 50%. Both for the fun of it (the challenge) and for storage 😉 I recently cleaned out old projects to give away because I simply do not have room for them anymore. Kinda hard to part with them though!

The first lantern or set of lanterns, I made with a fall-theme:

DSC_0020

I used AC Cardstock in Leaf along with patterned paper from BoBunny’s old collection “Apple Cider” and some patterned vellum from my stash. I also added a bit of raffia to the top of the lanterns.

They are very easy to make and I really love those cross patterned windows. Very cute don’t you think?

Next I made a set with a Halloween theme:

DSC_0023

I used AC Cardstock in Black along with patterned paper from BoBunny’s collection “Wonderfully Wicked” and some printable Vellum on which I printed a spider web pattern. I added some color changing LED lights and they are perfect for a small window in my kitchen 🙂

Finally I made a set with art:

DSC_0026

For these I used AC Cardstock in White along with Mercury Glass Paper from DCWV and printable vellum on which I printed paintings of Monet, Dali, Van Gogh and Picasso.

They look so awesome in a window with the light shining through but also incredible at night with the LED light on.

So these are the three variations you get in the one file and the possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating. Just think Holidays, seasons etc.

Thanks for joining me today and remember to come back soon for more fun projects 🙂

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 ❤

Shake it up!

Hello  – yes I’m already back again but this time with wonderful news: I am now part of the amazing and creative Design Team at Simply Crafty SVGs….wooo hoooo!!!!!

This will be my first DT project post and for this I have chosen to make the delicious Milkshake 😛

DSC_0022

This yummy 3D project is made from AC Cardstock in Aqua, White, Bubblegum, Grass and Crimson along with patterned paper from DCWV from the Copper Luxury Paper Stack.

I switched out the cherry on top with a Strawberry since it’s a Strawberry Shake and added some real sprinkles on top. The Strawberry I took from the Tiki Bar SVG File (from the Strawberry Daiquiri Drink on the counter) and enlarged a lot 😉 I drew some small black dots onto it and highlighted with a Sharpie Pen.

DSC_0024

Lastly I tied a cute pink ribbon onto the bottom and voila….time to dig in 😉

DSC_0026

This Shake is also a box – just lift up the shake and cream and you can put in a small gift or fill it up with treats. It’s quite large! So I thought to myself – can this one be downsized by 50%?

Yes it can!:

DSC_0018

This time it’s a Chocolate Shake but made the exact same way only it’s tiny. The cream part is difficult especially if you struggle with stiff fingers etc.

This one has the cherry on top and the sprinkles are small brown glass beads.

DSC_0020

The ribbon on this one is a piece of raffia – gosh it’s so yummylicious 😛 And the great thing about these shakes, is that they are completely free of Calories 😉

Thanks for visiting me (again) today – please let me know how you find the shakes in a comment below – I just love hearing from you ❤

 

50 shades of …..

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:

DSC_0010

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:

DSC_0011

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:

DSC_0003

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

DSC_0005

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:

DSC_0002

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 🙂

 

Tiki Party Fun

Slowly but sure…..Spring is turning into Summer and before we know it, we’ll be having BBQ’s, Pool Parties or Beach fun again….YAY! Can’t wait. Long for that hot summer sun, blue skies and cool breeze while I sip my Mojito on the porch 😛

I really need to have a Summer Party and especially a Tiki Party and even though I haven’t planned one yet, I made decorations 😀 That is so me! Maybe I have to settle with having these to decorate my house instead 😉

To start with I made the cute and fun Tropical Banner from SVGCut’s Tiki Party kit:

DSC_0006

I made it out of AC Cardstock in Oregano, Olive, Key Lime, Scarlet and Melon. The ink I used is Ingvild Bolme from Prima and the small dots are from Doodlebug Design.

This one is downsized by 50% to match the size ratio of the rest of the things I made 🙂

Next is the Tiki Bar from Simply Crafty SVGs:

DSC_0008

This fun and very cool bar is made from AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Brown Sugar, Melon, Scarlet, Rouge, Oregano, Peacock, Vanilla, Rain, and Coffee along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Safari Adventure”

I inked all the edges with Ingvild Bolme Ink pads and used a couple of Palm Leaves (Design ID #1696) and Hibiscus (Design ID #62344) from the Silhouette Design Store to decorate the Tiki Bar Sign.

Then I added a LED Color shifting Tea Light inside but that is not that visible in daylight.

Then I made a couple of 3D Tiki Torches from SnapDragon Snippets:

DSC_0014

These I downsized by 50% but they are still rather large compared to the bar 😀

They are made from AC Cardstock in Black and Brown Sugar along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Safari Adventure” and some gold Pearl Paper. I made both sizes that comes with the file.

And there is more……

Here it’s the Palm Tree 3d Nut Cup Place Card also from SnapDragon Snippets:

DSC_0010

This one is made from AC Cardstock in Brown Sugar, Chocolate, Chestnut, Oregano and Keylime along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Safari Adventure”. I also used Ingvild Bolme Ink pads on this one.

I made it as large as possible on the mat but kept the size of the hole for the treat cup.

To make it look like a pool, I made some Blue Jell-o in the treat cup and added a little ….Ehm….surprise….

Finally I made a Tiki Shaker Bag from the Tiki Card and Hibiscus Gift Bag from Bird’s Club Tropicana Collection:

DSC_0016

I adore this Tiki ❤

The bag is made from patterned paper by Graphic 45 “Safari Adventure” and the flower and Tiki are made from AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Rouge, Scarlet and Melon.

Then I filled some glitter and confetti into the shaker in green and gold colors and used some raffia as handles.

The bag and Tiki are sized down by 50%

Isn’t he fun?

Here is the whole lot together:

DSC_0002

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you’re as excited for Summer as I am and maybe you want to have a go at some of these cuties for your Tiki/Summer/Pool/Beach party this year 😀 Let me know in a comment!

Oh…..the surprise?…..Here it is:

Don’t want to find that guy in my pool!!!!

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 ❤
