Faux Wood Luminaries with Snowflakes

I seriously can’t think of a more beautiful thing than a snowflake. Perfect in every way and all different from each other.

This was my inspiration when making the new Snowflake 3D Luminary Tote Box from SVG Attic.

I made three – all with a different snowflake:

They are made in AC Cardstock Light Kraft and decorated with AC Dark Kraft and Chestnut. The handles are made from Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten.

I downsized them by 50%.

The one in the middle is the original one, the left snowflake is found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #36347 and the right snowflake is also from the Silhouette Design Store design ID #22593 – both a tiny bit altered.

These are tiny! I couldn’t fit a normal size LED tealight into them, so I went with the color-shifting ones. It goes without saying that the handle was a challenge in this size 😉

Thanks for joining me today – please tell me what you think of these in a comment below.

Have a great Sunday!

Happy Snowman

The calendar says Winter and Winter equals snow…..at least in some places. We have only had a few flakes hit the ground but it sure has gotten cold enough for the white gold to make it’s glorious entry. Yeah it’s hard being a winter/snow lover in Denmark these days.

While still eagerly awaiting some heavier snowfall, I made this tiny cute Smiling Snowman from Simply Crafty SVGs.

He is made from AC Cardstock in White, Chestnut, Black and Melon and decorated with Best Creation White Glitter paper and AC POW Glitter paper in Purple and Teal.

I downsized him to 50% of the original and that only made him cuter 🙂

I also made him a tiny lantern to keep him cozy in those looooong cold winter nights. It’s made from the Mini Hanging Lantern (freebie) and the Square Classic Lantern (the one with the cross windows).

dsc_0037

I simply added the cross windows to the Mini Hanging Lantern and then I shrunk it down a lot to make it fit in size for the tiny snowman. I also added a tiny LED light inside it.

Now he can keep me company while waiting for a Winter Miracle in the form of snow.

Thanks for stopping by – please come back soon  and also please leave me a comment below.

3 X 3 = Hygge

What is “Hygge”?

Hygge is a Danish word for coziness – for snuggling under a blanket, being with friends or Family or maybe just being yourself watching your favorite series in candle light, cuddled up in a warm blanket ❤

Hygge is definitely what comes to my mind when I see candles – being real or LED – and that is exactly what I’ve been working on for the last week. Not just one but 3 😉

Not just candles – they have to have something to stand on, so I made 3 candlesticks too.

Not just candles and candlesticks – I added a ring of leaves – or should I say 3.

Enough yapping – here they are:

dsc_0005

Candle 3D Chunky with Drips rests nicely on the Candle Stand 3D for Display with a alternated Candle Ring 3D Evergreens sandwiched between.

Let me start with the candle ring, as I made it somewhat different than the original.

dsc_0011

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf and Kale.

I used my Silhouette software to remove the Evergreen sprigs from the ring and add Leafy Sprigs instead as I wanted a more Springy feel to the project. It’s all about daring to use different features in the Silhouette Software (I bet lots of other cutting software offers features like this) like Make or Release “Compound path”, Welding or editing Points. All in all just play around – you can’t fail cause you can always go back.

Then I made the Candle in AC Cardstock Caramel and inked the edges with Distress Ink in a light brown shade. The candle sure is easy to make! You just have to have your pieces organized.

Finally I made the Candle Stand or Stick in AC Cardstock Vanilla and inked the edges with the same Distress Ink. This is also very easy to make and it is so sturdy!

dsc_0013

That’s it – times 3. Ready for Spring, Easter and Summer. You could add flowers to the rings for more decoration – I just like them the way they are.

Thanks for joining me today – please let me know what you think of this project in a comment below and have a super cozy Sunday.

Let it Snow

Ahhhh January! Once a season full of snow and ice but now……grey, dull, warm and rainy. Uggg!

I really miss snow – sooo much. Knowing that a lot of people hate it because it makes everything slippery and cold, I still love how it lights up everything and dimming down all noise and sounds. I love the sound it makes when walking in it and I love the different beautiful shapes of snowflakes.

So with hope still intact, I made two snowflake projects I want to show you.

First of is the new gorgeous Snowflake Slot Form Swirls 3D Ornament:

dsc_0020

I made it in 75% of the original and used AC Cardstock in White and white glitter paper from Best Creation.

It is incredible easy to cut and assemble – just takes a few hours from start to finish and it looks so much like a wood ornament.

I do like to dab a little glue here and there so nothing accidentally moves and it remains super sturdy.

Next I made the 3D Snowflake Northern Cross Star from the JGW Snowflake Stars kit:

dsc_0010

I made this in it’s original size and it do require a lot of paper – but the result is just amazing!!!

I made it from AC Cardstock in White and Charcoal and decorated with white glitter paper from Best Creation and Silver Metallic paper from Tim Holtz.

dsc_0012

Seems like I want to light up everything, so I added holes in the different layers in the lid of the box plus one hole on the side of the box through both lid and base for the string of LED lights to come through.

dsc_0011

I also added panels of Silver Metallic paper on the inside of the base for the lights to reflect on, hoping for a greater light effect.

Now I hope for some snow to match my new pretty snowflakes – if you have any to spare – just send it my way please.

Thanks for joining me today – hope to see you again next time.

Winter Kisses

Thanks for joining me today 🙂 Just wanna show a little something I made inspired by all the love floating around these days and yet I want to keep it un-Valentined 😀

The other day I went shopping on a Danish webshop that sells American candies among other stuff and I found some Hersheys Kisses. That made me think of the Chocolate Kiss 3D Box from SnapDragon Snippets and voila!

DSC_0010

This baby is so incredible easy to make! I used some grey pearl cardstock and AC Cardstock in Chocolate to make the box and made and added on some panels in silver foiled paper, that I embossed with a crackled pattern. Then I made the tag with the print and cut function on my Silhouette Cameo along with the small cute winter images that I clued onto the chocolate. I found these in the Silhouette Design Store id #70871 and #70219.

Just the thing for a winter-lover like me 🙂

Now I need to hide the rest of the kisses, cause my eldest son has now developed a taste for them.

Have an awesome weekend – hope you get a lot of crafting done 🙂

 

I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas…..

….or even one in rainbow colors 😉

No seriously! It has been a looooong time since we’ve had a white Christmas here in Denmark and I really long for the white gold. But so far all we have is grey, windy and chilly weather. Yuk 😦

So I have to escape to fantasy land to get my White Christmas. What luck that you can find just that at 3dcuts.com. Last Christmas I decorated my table with the cute little white houses but this year Marji Roy made a Hexagon Base to display the little winter town. I got my base at 3dcuts.com but all the little houses in the Silhouette Design Store. I do have to mention that the Skating Rink is not part of the Tea Light Village but one I found in the Silhouette Design Store (#102105) and I sized it down to match the houses.

So here it is:

DSC_0011

The entire town is made from White AC Cardstock. I did spray the base and the roofs with some glitter but it’s hard to see in the pics.

My display is made for my dresser so I didn’t have to worry about the backside of it.

I also a string of fairy lights and I went with multicolored…..This was a great decision! Just look how pretty it is lit at night:

Now my little town has really come to life and my dream of a white and a rainbow colored Christmas has come true.

Here are some more pics of the lit town:

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 🙂

Snowy Trees

Hello! 🙂 Just a small post to show you the two different trees I made out of Bird’s Snowflake Tree from her newest and absolutely gorgeous collection Christmastime.

First I made the tree the way Bird intended it to be:

DSC_0010

I made it out of White AC Cardstock and the star is made from DCWV’s Mercury Glass Collection.

Here seen from above:

DSC_0015

As you can see it’s very symmetrical ❤

Then I tried to mess things up and make a tree that is asymmetrical:

DSC_0005

This tree is also made from White AC Cardstock but the star is made from Gold Pearl Paper. This tree is a bit fuller but still gorgeous. All I did was turn the center hole 45 degrees in every other snowflake.

Here’s a top view:

DSC_0014

I can’t decided which I love the most and I really dig the idea of how you can play around with this tree any way you want. You can even make it rainbow colored ❤

Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you can use my little idea and please comment on it below ❤ Time for playing with the rest of the kit 😉
