Garden Bench Gift Box

Hi everyone! I just love this time of year! Flowers blooming, birds chirping, and most of all we’re still having cool nights along with mildly warm days! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs blog and I’m excited to share my Garden Bench gift box using the amazing Garden Bench cut file which I absolutely love! I just can’t get over that it’s a gift box! I think this would be absolutely adorable stuffed with an assortment of flowers for a crafty friend! What do you think?!

I used 120# kraft cardstock for the base and a scrap piece of multi-color striped paper for the coordinating front and side pieces which I inked.

Surf Shack

Hello, my crafty friends! I am so excited to share my latest DT inspiration project for Simply Crafty SVGs – a Surf Shack! I am so in love with how this turned out! I used the Love Shack cut file, along with elements from these cut files: Surfer’s Paradise Card (surf board and tree), Fishing Boat Box (life preserver) and Mountain Camping Box Card (chair). OMG… I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this!

2018_05130001a

As part of the transformation of this cut file from Love Shack to Surf Shack, all of the walls, roof shingles and door pieces are stamped with a woodgrain background stamp which I thought added a fun touch. I added ‘rope’ to the life preserver and sparkle overlay marker to the surf board for some shimmer.

2018_05130002a

Here are a few more shots from all angles. I just LOVE this! Squeal! ;)


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, White, Dark Chocolate, Black Onyx, Cherry Red, Grass Green, Wild Dandelion and Tomato Soup cardstock

Berta’s Ride

Hi everyone! A very Happy Hump Day to you! The closing date on our house was  postponed so we’re looking forward to moving the first weekend in April! I have a fun post for you today – a project created with Simply Crafty SVGs free Treatmobile cut file. As soon as Sandy added this cut file to the store, I had to have it. My sister, Roberta, had a 1964 VW Beetle back in the day that she affectionately called Herbie. She passed away in 1988 and I’ve never forgotten all the fun we had in that car. Our road trips were amazing. I could go on and on as I reminisce!

2018_02110011a

I used white cardstock for the car base, and medium and dark shades of purple cardstock for the car parts. I used a sweet floral patterned paper for the doors.

2018_02110012a

I just can’t get over the cuteness overload! Loving how this turned out and I can’t wait to gift it! ;)

2018_02110013a

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Basic Black cardstock; Pebbles Basics 6×6 paper pad
Dies/Punches: Simply Crafty SVGs free Treatmobile cut file

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this awesome little project I created with the free cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs! Pop on over and grab it, and while you’re there, be sure to check out all the other fun designs! You’ll leave there a happy camper, I’m sure!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’ve popped in today with a fun DT inspiration project for Simply Crafty SVGs using the Side by Side Box Card cut file and the shamrock from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file. OMG, you’da thought I was a giant kid putting this together, lol! What fun!

2018_02110001a

I used 120# kraft cardstock for the card base which makes the card pretty stable. I used a couple shades of green cardstock for the vehicle along with some ‘manly’ patterned paper that I lightly inked. I used an extra print and cut sentiment (included in the cut file) that I punched with a circle punch.

2018_02110002a

I cut several shamrocks (from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file) and attached them to strips of clear window sheet to load up the back of the vehicle! :D

2018_02110003a

And one final shot showing the collapsed and ready-to-mail card. So cool! ;)

A gift from me to you.

Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Friday to you! I’ve popped in this morning to share a fun little gift box from Simply Crafty SVGs! This Clutch Purse Box is in the ‘Freebies’ section and is so much fun to make! Since joining the Simply Crafty SVGs design team, I’ve decided to create an extra project each month in addition to my regular DT inspiration project which will feature a free file in the shop.

2018_02110005a

I used black cardstock for the base along with a gorgeous floral patterned paper for the decorative panels. I stamped the ‘gift’ sentiment in black on a scrap of coral paper to match, then again in Versamark, and then embossed it in clear. I cut the sentiment with a flag die and added a flower from my stash.
