Santa Claus is coming to town

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you. I created the most adorable Santa using the Simply Crafty SVGs Santa Stacking Box Set cut file. O.M.G. Is he not the cutest guy ever?!

The top box is Santa’s top half and his hat comes off to reveal the box. ;)

The bottom box is Santa’s bottom half, and that lid comes off to reveal the box. I haven’t decided whether or not I’m going to put anything in these boxes – I’m thinking I may turn the set into a piece of Christmas decor! What would you do?!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day treat box

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day – it’s almost the end of February! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, an adorable treat box created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day in a couple weeks, which has always been one of my favs because of the green! ;)

2019_09040019a

I mean, how flippin’ cute is this?! It’s so easy to put together but sure packs a big punch with all that color! I used dark gray for the pot and of course, rainbow colors for the rainbow, and the sentiment was a printable included in the cut file that I punched with a circle punch and layered on slightly larger punched circle.

Here’s an angled shot…

3/14/20 DT Favorite at World Wide Open Design Team Monthly Challenge!

Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’ve popped in this evening to share a super adorable wall hanging I made today to enter into the February Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge. Everyone joining in the challenge receives a free sponsor digi to create with each month. All Dressed Up Stamps is our sponsor this month and we’re playing with the most adorable My Best Friend digi stamp. OMG, how stinkin’ cute is she?! You ought to check out The Outlawz Challenges – lots of challenges to enter and lots of fun going on!

2020_0222001

My hubby recently bought me several large and small embroidery hoops for my crafty stash so I decided to use a small one for this project. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers, then centered the image in the hoop and traced around the outside of the hoop to cut a circle. I adhered the image on the back of the hoop and then added some paper flowers, a ribbon bow embellished with a flower button, and a little bit of bling. I also added a circle of pink and white gingham paper to the back of the wall hanging to give it a clean and finished look on the back side.

And one more peek… I’m absolutely tickled with how this turned out! I’m always really happy when my projects turn out as good in real life as they do in my mind, lol!

Floral Perpetual Calendar

Hi everyone! Welcome to 2020 – sure seems like it got here F-A-S-T! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my first project of the new year with you for LTSCB #129 – Anything Goes! I created a pretty floral perpetual calendar for my studio using the Sizzix Calendar Months die set and my Zutter Bind It All which I bought 5-6 years ago. It’s amazing what you find when you move, lol! It’s been so long since I used it, I had to use the instruction book!

This project was a lot of fun and I’m proud to say it’s my own design. Yep, out came the ruler with lots of measuring and a little planning! The calendar background is a beautiful floral paper with panels showing the days of the week, the months, the numeral date, and a graphic for that month’s holiday.

2019_0909001a

I covered the back of the base with solid color cardstock.

2019_09090037a

I created the days of the week on the computer because I don’t own any days of the week stamps or dies (insert sad face). The numbers (bottom right pic) were cut with dies in the Calendar Months die set.

DaysOfWeek Collage

The names of the months were all cut with dies in the set as well. I love the different fonts – no two are alike! I wrapped twine around the bottom of the base and tied a pretty little bow with a pink Dot Sparkler in the center.

Months Collage

The most fun part of this calendar are the holiday graphics. These were all in the die set too! The pic in the center is a side view of the calendar. It’s very sturdy and I’m sure will hold up for many years. I’m really loving how this turned out and can’t wait to start using it!

Holidays Collage

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Cardstock Warehouse Brown Box kraft cardstock; GKD Black Onyx, Red Hot, Wild Dandelion, Grass Green, Sweet Mango, White, Wild Lilac, Wild Orchid, Dark Chocolate, Bubblegum Pink and Tan Leather cardstock; American Crafts black cardstock; Stampin’ Up Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate cardstock; The Paper Studio cream cardstock, Stampin’ Up Share What You Love specialty DSP

Christmas Boxes

11/30/19 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Team Open Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! It’s Fri-YAY!… are you doing the Happy Dance?! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #16 – November Anything Christmas Goes! I’ve been on a box ‘kick’ lately and have created a couple more – these are Christmas boxes that I’ve turned into decor which will look super cute displayed since we won’t be putting up a tree this year. We have nine cats, lol! They both have stitched square die cut sentiments on the front with wrinkled ribbon closures at the top (which I actually glued closed).

2019_0813001a

I used the Stampin’ Up Baker’s Box Thinlits to create these. Here are side shots – they remind me of milk cartons. So cute! ;)

2019_0813002a

I used wood-look paper for this box with a brown and burgundy color combo. I just love the vintage Santa!

2019_0813003a

I used green plaid paper for this box with a more traditional red and green color combo. This wrinkled ribbon is some of my favorite!

Proud to enter this set of boxes into the following challenges:
