gather together & give thanks

Hi everyone! We’re busting right through this year – so hard to believe it’s October already! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a fabulous pumpkin decor piece created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Fall Pumpkin Luminary cut file. This is definitely one of my favorite cut files I’ve worked with yet! Super easy but so elegant!

This project took four colors of cardstock and twine, and it was amazing watching it come together! The six strands of twine made a beautiful bow which was definitely an added touch!

I went one step further and added a stamped tag, tucked down into the twine bow.

Here’s a view of the back side of the pumpkin which is just as pretty as the front and sides, lol!

Tissue Box Holder

Hello, my crafty peeps! Happy Tuesday! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project with you for LTCCB #39 – October Anything Goes! I created a tissue box holder covered with gorgeous digital papers from the Ephemoire Etsy store! I designed this to hang horizontally on the wall with two Command Strips on the back.

Leslie

This was a breeze to make – took me about an hour from start to finish. I plan to make another one for our bathroom using earth tone papers. The base is 120# kraft cardstock and I printed the digital papers on 60# paper.

One more look from overhead… so pretty! I did not write down the measurements for this tissue box holder, but I will write them down for the next one I make and will post them on my Freebies page, so stay tuned!

polkadot flower gift bags

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday – hope your week is off to a tremendously fabulous start! Our October challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #126 – No Cards Allowed! This month we’d love to see your project that is NOT a card! We are being sponsored this month by Bugaboo Digi Stamps so be sure to come over and play for a chance to win a prize! I created a pair of super cute little gift bags using several papers in Bugaboo’s polkadot flowers digi papers collection.

2019_09030018aa

I cut tags from coordinating papers and tied a length of quilting thread to each in order to wrap around the handle to close the bag. I also adhered a flower to each tag.

I’m absolutely tickled with how these little gift bags turned out and can’t wait to ‘find’ something to tuck inside so I can gift them!

Home Sweet Home Mini Album

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday – I hope the week has started off on a great note for you! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #30 – Anything Goes + Open Technique! All of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a technique twist each month to inspire you and it’s not required to play. This month the twist is an open technique and all we ask is that you mention in your blog post which technique you chose to use on your project. I chose the 3-D technique to create my project for this challenge, in the form of the most adorable mini album shaped like a little house! I used The Paper Studio Mirabelle cardstock on all the panels and roof, using a different pattern on each, and I embellished the front with a sheer ribbon bow. Here are shots of all the angles going around the outside of the house.

My inspiration for this adorable mini album came from a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter a few months back that you can find HERE. I immediately fell in love and couldn’t wait for the prime opportunity to make one, putting my own spin on the design! I created the ‘Home Sweet Home’ sentiment on the computer which I cut with a stitched circle die and layered on a slightly larger stitched circle die cut. I embellished this sentiment with flowers and a stamped butterfly that I colored with Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the home definition on the other side of the roof in dark brown ink.

I used magnets to close in the house shape, and when opened, reveals panels on the inside to display photos and/or journaling. OMG, cuteness overload!

Small Floral Hanging Lantern

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! Today is not my posting day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog but I’ve popped in to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a sweet little hanging lantern created with the free (ySimply Crafty SVGs Mini Hanging Lantern cut file. How cute would it be to create several of these and hang them around the deck or patio for a birthday party or a summer get-together?!

2019_09040016a

The sky is the limit for choosing papers for these! I chose a heavy kraft cardstock for the base and then a pretty floral print for the panels.

2019_09040017a

The finishing touches were a few pink gemstones to give this lantern a little pizzazz and some pink and white Baker’s twine. Love how this turned out!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having an awesome weekend! I’m super stoked to share another Ephemoire inspiration project with you this month. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

As mentioned in my last post, I’ve been playing with the Is It Autumn Yet #1 this month, and using that paper collection along with Is It Autumn Yet #2, Is It Autumn Yet #3 and Is It Autumn Yet #4 letter size digi papers, I created an Autumn-themed stationery box that holds six cards and envelopes, six tags, three trifold notelets with belly bands, a lined book, a postage stamp pocket and a pen. This is the second stationery box I’ve made and I thoroughly enjoyed it! This version was highlighted in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter a couple years ago HERE and I’m so glad I bookmarked it!

2019_09080011a

Before I show you the contents, here are some shots of the outside of the box. It’s amazing to me how much fits in this box! ;)


Now for the fun stuff! Here is the lined book that can be used to record birthdays, addresses or whatever your heart desires, a pocket for postage stamps, and a handy-dandy pen! I attached the book with two small velcro circles on the back side so it can be removed to add extra pages when necessary, and the next pic shows the extra pages I included. ;)

Here are the six tags, each with a different paper pattern.

Here are the three 3″ x 3″ trifold notes, each with a belly band, and the next pic shows one of them opened up.

Here are the six cards with envelopes, three birthday and three thank you.

2019_09080016a

And another shot of the set. I’m super happy with how this turned out! The digital papers in these four sets are just amazing and would do ANY project justice! Swoon and drool! LOL!

Autumn High Heel & Clutch

9/30/19 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Team Challenge Blog!
10/11/19 Top 3 at Not Just Cards Challenges!

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m really excited to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you this morning. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

I’ve been playing with the Is It Autumn Yet #1 letter size digi papers and created an awesome high heel with matching clutch. Of course, these will hold a place of honor in my paper shoe collection! I’ve had this high heel shoe template in my stash for a number of years. I really love the shoe’s elegance and had a hard time picking just one paper from this collection to make it. I settled on the golden color print and so glad I did. I had small paper flowers in my stash that match perfectly! ;)

2019_0908006a

I designed the clutch myself from cardstock, covered it in the golden print paper, and added a couple flowers. It’s not quite big enough for a gift card (would have been too large in comparison to the shoe), but a folded check or money will easily fit into the pouch. It has a small velcro closure.

2019_0908007a

One more look… super happy with how this project turned out! Love, love, love ALL the digital papers in this collection – they are absolutely gorgeous!
