Christmas Bird House

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day and the 8th of August already! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an adorable Christmas Bird House created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Bird House cut file. The sky is the limit with this one… you can create any kind of house you want! I just got several packs of Christmas papers and I was just itching to get into them! But how cute is this?! It’s a gift box!

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!

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

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!

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
