Belongs To Frosty

 

Hello and happy 3rd Sunday in Advent.

Today I want to show you the cute Christmas decoration I made using the hat from the JGW Frosty Topper kit.

This was both a challenge and so much fun to make.

I used AC Cardstock in Black and Charcoal for the hat and added the snowflake made from double-sided adhesive sprinkled with glitter to make it look frosty.

Then I went to town with Fir Sprigs in Forrest AC Cardstock and Leafy Sprigs in Spinach along with a Pinecone in Chestnut AC Cardstock.

I also made him a Corncob 3d Pipe in AC Cardstock Butter and Caramel and two thick buttons in Sky, Blue Jay, Chestnut and Chocolate Cardstock and tied some white raffia onto them as string.

Finally I added some different decor pieces like the berries, the small glass baubles and the Spanish moss and Voila! It was done.

Usually I haven’t got the first idea on how to make a Christmas Decoration – but I think I got away with this one – don’t you?

Thanks for joining me today….Christmas is almost here, but I still have a few things up my sleeve.

The Joy of Giving

Hello and happy 2nd Sunday of Advent

Today I want to show you a beautiful gift box I made from the new kit by SVG Attic called JGW Christmas Botanica

DSC_0023

The Poinsettia 3D Flower Topped Box is perfect for a small hostess gift or even a Christmas gift.

I made the box in AC Cardstock in Rouge, Crimson, Olive and White and decorated it with patterned paper from Swedish Maja Design Paper “I Wish” and Best Creation White Glitter Paper.

I inked all the edges with chalk ink from Prima and sprinkled some Glass Glitter Gold Rush from Finnabair onto the flower center. Finally I added some gold glitter dots to the snowflake.

I can’t wait to be giving this one away…..

Thanks for joining me today – I still have lots of projects to show you so don’t stray too far 😉

My First Wreath

Hello and thanks for joining me once again on the blog this week 🙂

I have always been intimidated by wreaths. The idea of having to decorate it yourself like a flower arrangement, is just a no-go for me. I’m terrible at arranging flowers and the like.

But then I discovered the Folded Star Sprigs 3D Wreath from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit and I jumped to the challenge.

DSC_0006

I used AC Cardstock in Spinach for the ring and the outside sprigs and Spinach, Leaf and Moss for the filler sprigs. I made more than shown in the tutorial to make the wreath look a bit fuller.

I didn’t make the stars like Jodi did, because they are very similar to some folded stars that are traditional here in Denmark and that I have tons of since my mom and Mother-in-Law folded or actually braided lots for me (I just can’t seem to get the hang of it ) The only difference between my stars and Jodis is that mine are double sided as to Jodis being one-sided (and proberbly a lot easier to glue down) I used hot glue to glue down the stars and the small silver baubles.

DSC_0010

All in all this wreath was very easy to assemble. The only difficulty I had, was gluing the ring together but it doesn’t have to be perfect since it’s going to be covered with sprigs anyways.

Thanks for joining me today – stay tuned for more Christmas projects soon.

Realistic Pine Cone

Hello – Thanks for joining me again today.

This time I want to show you the amazing and very realistic Pine Cone I made from the new kit from SVG Attic called JGW Christmas Botanica.

Pine cone

For this rather large but absolutely delicious Pine Cone, I used 10 sheets of AC Cardstock Chocolate.

It is so easy to assemble and you can find the tutorial right here

I also made two Pine Sprigs from the Pine Sprigs A7 Card also to be found in the new kit.

They are made of two or in my case three layers and I used AC Cardstock in Forest and Pine.

Finally I tied a red ribbon onto it and ta daaa….all done.

Thanks for joining me today.

Santas Boots

Hello and happy 1st. Sunday of Advent 🙂

Gosh! I’ve been waiting for this month all year – I just love Christmas and all the fantastic paper projects you can make this time of year.

For starters I want to show you this pair of boots I made from the JGW Santas Repose kit.

DSC_0016

The boots are made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal, Black and White and the pine sprigs are also made in AC Cardstock in Forest and Spinach.

I decorated two of the sprigs with some green/gold shimmery paper and the panels for the shoelaces are DCWV Silver Mercury Glass Cardstock.

DSC_0018

I also added a small bell on each boot along with some snowflakes from my stash.

DSC_0021

These boots are awesome as they are but I chose to use them as decoration with some candy canes.

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back later with some more Christmas projekts.

Colorful Christmas

Today I want to show a small project I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time now. I admit I was a bit intimidated by it, but lately some of my projects have been rather challenging so I looked at it again and thought: Naaahhhh you can do it!

I’m talking about the cute Candy Cane Box from the JGW Santas Repose kit from SVG Attic.

DSC_0024

It’s made from Rouge AC Cardstock and the stripes are some thin washi tape I found in my stash. Made it very easy to wrap.

The pinecone is made from Chestnut AC Cardstock and decorated with two types of glitter so it looked frosted.

DSC_0030

Finally the holly is made from Pine and Spinach AC Cardstock and decorated with Cricket POW Glitter paper from AC.

DSC_0032

I am really surprised how easy everything was to make and assemble – what was I fearing???? Sometimes you just have to tell that head of yours to be quiet and dive in! 😉

I stuffed this baby full of red, green and purple Skittles and it’s all ready as gift for a lucky someone.

Thanks for stopping by today – ahead is a full month of Christmas with lots of creative projects, yummy treats and lots of cozy moments with friends and family…..Oooooooh I’m so excited!

Winter Fun

Hello! If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait for the white gold to start falling and for Jack Frost to make nature sparkle and glitter. Winter is definitely my favorite season (that is when it behaves the way it should and not the foggy, rainy, warm winter) so that is what it’s all about today.

I just couldn’t help myself to make the cute Igloo from the SDS Frosty Friends kit

DSC_0001

It is made out of AC Cardstock in White and Blueberry and decorated with Sparkle Paper in White and Maja Design Paper “Joyous Winterdays”. Just follow the instructions found here and you’ll be all set – easy peasy!

I also wanted the Igloo to look inhabited, so I made a small sled for the owner.

DSC_0006

The sled is from the JGW Made of Snow kit. It’s made of AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Slate and Black along with some wood patterned paper from KaiserKraft. I used a tiny black brad for the steering pad and some twine. The small rivets are made from small dots of Enamel Accent from Tim Holtz. I did size this one down to match the size of the Igloo. You find the tutorial for the sled here.

The owner is also keen on skis, so I made him a pair from the JGW Winter Wonderland Wreath

DSC_0012

These skis are made a bit bigger to match the size of the Igloo and sled and are made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and Charcoal and with patterned paper from KaiserKraft. These are soooo easy to make and you find the tutorial here.

At night the igloo lights up with a cozy light 😉

DSC_0006

So now the small but lucky owner of the Igloo is ready for the upcoming frosty season and I look forward to many more cool and glittery projects in my warm and cozy craft room 🙂

Thanks for visiting today – please leave a small comment on your way out ❤

Hautingly Beautiful

Thanks for joining me today as I share one of my last (as of this year) Halloween projects: The Candlelabra 3D for Tea Lights from the JGW Witches Gather kit from SVG Attic:

DSC_0001

This beauty is made entirely from Black AC Cardstock (and a 1.25″ dowel) and is very easy to assemble. The only thing I changed or added, is the extra panels of the arms that I embossed with a Damask Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug and added some Rich Copper Metallique Wax from Prima to all edges and the embossed panels to make it look more old and spooky 🙂

I made the extra panels by simply making a internal offset of the Outer Scroll arm on my Silhouette Cameo.

You will find the tutorial for this file here and I hope you’ll have as much fun with it as I did.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave some comments on the projects

You’ve Been Booed….

Hello 🙂

Today I’m here with a quick post to show you the fun I had yesterday with one of the cute Halloween cards from the SDS Halloween Cards kit – the Boo Ghost Card

IMG_8627

I made the card with AC Cardstock and “Tricky” patterned paper from Authentique.

Now this card is so cute as it is but I wanted to add a little extra detail:

IMG_8628

Do you see it? I know it’s a bit hard to see on the picture, but I added some colored Chibitronics LED lights behind the Boo banner that turns on by pushing the pumpkin.

Now this card is exactly how I want it 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today – please let me know what you think 🙂

Scary Skull

 

Good Sunday Morning – thanks for joining me on the blog today 🙂

This week SVG Attic releashed a new kit called JGW Witches Gather. In this kit I found this totally awesome realistic shaped Skull. I just needed that for my Halloween decorations…..It’s so cool – don’t you think?

DSC_0010

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla. I made some holes in his eyes, nose and ears so light can shine through and covered these with some printed vellum.

Just look how amazing he looks in the dark:

DSC_0003

My light is a little too bright but I really love this look.

Thanks for stopping by today – remember I love to read all your comments ❤
