Summer Skimmer Hat Box

** 12/15/18 Best Technique Winner at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge! **

Hi everyone! In the midst of all the Christmas cards and projects, cool weather and snow, Christmas shows and songs on TV, and the wonderful smell of peppermint, I thought I’d throw in something totally different! A new challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #29 – December Anything Goes! I created an adorable Summer Skimmer Hat Box! OMG… super cute and super fun to put together!

I used the Skimmer Hat Box cut file from The Dreaming Tree to cut all the pieces and parts. Then the fun began… putting it together! I created the hat box base and decorated it, then created the flowers and attached them to the hat box base.

to a great friend

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Well, we’re just shy of six weeks until Christmas! I love the cool weather and the wonderful sights and sounds! Thanksgiving and Christmas are definitely my two favorite holidays! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an awesome little gift box created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Craft Tote Bag cut file. I can’t tell you how much fun this was to put together!

2018_09090010a

Other than the main box which used a larger sheet of cardstock, I used quite a few scraps which I’m always happy to do. I stamped a sentiment in black ink on the blank word frame that’s included in the file. Here are a few shots from different angles, showing the handle extended (yes, it goes up and down!), the fun little pieces of cardstock in one side pocket, and rolls of vinyl, glue and scissors in the the other side pocket!

Rustic Outhouse

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a great week! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a very cool Rustic Outhouse created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Outhouse cut file. OMG, I had THE best time creating this! I dug out the rust paste and made the hardware on the door and the roof rusty! Gotta have some rust!

2018_09090016a

I used a woodgrain background stamp on all the pieces beneath the trim. I have to say that Simply Crafty SVGs owner, Sandy, thought of everything when she created this cut file… even a toilet seat and toilet paper, lol!

2018_09090017a

Here are shots from different angles. This is the first time I’ve played with the rust paste and I think I like it! :)

The September challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #26 – September Anything Goes!

This one with the owls is the second of the three I made. Next month I’ll share the third one! These are super easy to mass produce and the possibilities for decorating them are endless!

2017_09110001a

I used Stampin’ Up papers and stamps along with a sheet of Dare 2B Artzy paper from which those adorable owls were fussy cut. So cute!

It’s a gift box!

2018_08060001a

I used an Argyle embossing folder for the roof panels.

Rows of Crystal Drops embellish the eves (on both sides) which is actually the top of the box!

2018_08060003a

I’m loving the wood grain Christmas paper! I inked the edges of all the panels for a rustic look.

2018_08060004a

And the lid comes off… I told you – it’s a gift box! Love it!

Season’s Greetings Lamp Post

Hello, my crafty friends! We’re rockin’ right on into the middle of July with some warm weather and periodic rain showers, but our evenings/nights are in the low to mid 50s and I love it! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs blog and I’m excited to share my Season’s Greetings Lamp Post using the very awesome Holiday Lamp Post cut file which I’ve fallen madly in love with!

2018_0710001a

The snowcapped lantern top comes off to add a battery-operated tea light. Unfortunately, I don’t have any but will update this post soon when I can add one. It looks very cool!

2018_0710002a

I stamped a Christmas greeting on the sign in black ink and added a little sparkle overlay marker to the snowflake.

2018_0710003a

I added some tiny red Dot Sparklers to the wreath and a larger green one to the bow for a little added interest. I also added sparkle overlay marker to the snow on the base of the lamp post. Love how this turned out and I can’t wait to display it on my desk at work during the holidays!
