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!

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!

Happy Birthday

10/3/19 Top 3 at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! 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 birthday wagon full of posies, created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Wagon of Flowers Box Card cut file. Super cute and loads of fun!

2019_087004a

Sandy created this as a box card which folds flat for mailing, however, I took it one step further and made it into a fixed piece of decor for a mantle or shelf. ;) I love how this turned out! I do apologize for how the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment photographed in this pic – foil is so darn hard to photograph!

2019_087005a

Here’s a shot of the back of the wagon which features a plain panel for writing a custom message and signature.

2019_087006a

I used a gold foil sentiment sticker rather than stamping on this one, and it could be used for just about any occasion. I think is this one of my favorite cut files so far and I have several favorites… lots of fun picking out the bright colors and putting this together! ;)

Pink & Purple Dotted Bowls

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday – I hope you’re having a great week! 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, a pair of dotted bowls created with the free Simply Crafty SVGs Embellishment Bowl cut file. Yes, I said free, so be sure to check it out! ;)

2019_087001a

I inked the upper and lower edges of these bowls with white chalk ink to disguise the white core of the dotted papers I chose.

2019_087002a

Sandy hit the ball home when she created this file… these bowls are an amazing addition to any crafter’s studio and went together seamlessly. I just had to have a couple of these on my table to put small embellishments in so I wouldn’t lose them. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost small things that I had set aside for projects I was working on! Love how these turned out and I’m thoroughly enjoying using them! ;)

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Colorbok pink and purple cardstock, Colorbok pink and purple Seeing Dots paper stack

OMG, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this… what a fun project! Now I can’t wait to give it to someone special! ;)

2019_0730001a

I dug into my stash of American Crafts smooth cardstock and pulled out several colors to cut all the pieces from, then put the card together. I love watching Sandy’s videos, and this one was as easy as she portrayed it to be. ;)

2019_0730002a

I inked the panel on the back for the personal message and signature.

2019_0730003a

Here’s a view from the top so you can see the awesome construction of this box card. Sorry my angle is a little off, lol!

Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a fun Washi Tape caddy that I created for my studio with the Simply Crafty SVGs Tool Caddy cut file. I’ve become addicted to skinny Washi Tape and thought it only fitting to create a caddy to hold it!

2019_03240010a

I used 120# Kraft cardstock for the base and some orange dotted cardstock for the panels. I have a fun Crafty Organization stamp set from Inspired by Stamping in my stash that I decided to use to stamp the label in matching orange ink. What a fun project – I’ll soon be making a couple more of these in different colors to hold the rest of my Washi Tape! ;)

Cardstock/Paper: Paper Accents 120# Kraft cardstock, Colorbok Seeing Dots cardstock, GKD Tomato Soup cardstock, Stampin’ Up Whisper White cardstock scrap
Stamps: Inspired by Stamping Crafty Organization stamp set
