Christmas Explosion Box

Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday and that means it’s Huuump Daaay! 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 fun exploding box (a box with a box inside) created with the FREE Simply Crafty SVGs Square Explosion Box cut file. And yes, I did say free – Sandy has tons of freebies in her store, so if you’re new to electronic die cutting or if you’re just wanting to add some cool cut files to your arsenal, check out the store! This is sadly my last post for Simply Crafty SVGs and I want to thank Sandy and the rest of the gang for having me along for the past 2-1/2 years! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself and really appreciate Sandy’s generosity!

I, too, went with a Christmas theme and used some awesome PhotoPlay papers. I had the tinsel wreath ornament in my stash so I cut off the ornament string and hot-glued it to the lid.

Here’s a shot of the box opened up to reveal the small box in the center. Loving all these patterned papers!

Joy-Love-Noel-Peace

Hi everyone! Another great Happy Hump Day to you! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a set of Christmas cards for my stash created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Christmas Tree Card Set cut file. OMG, I love these! Very awesome additions to my Christmas card stash!

2020_02020018a

I went with a kraft cardstock card base on all of the cards, as well as green, brown and yellow elements. I added tiny Dot Sparklers to all the trees in different colors. Here are close-ups of all the cards…

Joy Mini Treat Box

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! 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 little treat box created with the free (yep, that’s what I said!) Simply Crafty SVGs Chocolate Squares Box cut file. OMGosh, is this cute or what?!

2020_0202005a

This was truly an easy one to put together. That’s the wonderful thing about Sandy… she takes all the guesswork out of her files. Instructions are straight-forward and easy to understand – in the form of written instructions downloaded with the file or a YouTube video where you can follow along interactively.

2020_0202006a

I cut the base from heavyweight kraft, the side panels from a pretty PhotoPlay red print and the handles from a holly print on the flip side of the red print. I tied a scrap of white and red hounds tooth ribbon through the handle with bamboo cord, and adhered a ‘joy’ sticker from the same PhotoPlay Collection Kit. The possibilities are endless with regard to colors, themes and occasions. I went with a Christmas theme here as Sandy did.

2020_0202007a

One more peek… so loving this! This would be a super cute project to mass produce to take chocolate to co-workers!

Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start and you’re seeing some lovely Spring weather! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a sweet Christmas truck treat box created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Red Truck Treat Box cut file.

2020_0202009a

This is another one of Sandy’s amazing cut files with super simple construction. There’s not a long list of supplies, either… just a few colors of cardstock and some good glue! I use ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever on all my projects.

2020_02020010a

I drew some tree lines on both sides of the tree with a light gray Spectrum Noir alcohol marker. I LOVE how this turned out and can’t wait for Christmas! ;)

Patriotic flower box

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 patriotic treat box I created for the July 4th holiday using the free Simply Crafty SVGs USA Banner Box cut file. I love all things patriotic and this really fits the bill!

2019_09040023a

This was one of the easiest and quickest cut files I’ve ever worked with and packs a seriously big punch. It only takes red, white and blue cardstock, a little bit of die cutting, and *poof* you have a very cool box!

2019_09040024a

My plan is to create a small red, white and blue floral arrangement for this box, and will update this post with a photo or two when that happens. ;)

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

2019_0903005a

I cut the base from heavy kraft cardstock and the panels from some fun October Afternoon paper. Here are several shots showing how this box opens. Super cute design!

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.

2019_09040020a

Here’s an angled shot…

Floral Post-It Note Holders

Hello, crafty friends! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a set of three floral Post-It Note holders created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Decorative Sticky Note Pad Holders cut file. I am absolutely in love with these!

2019_0908001a

I created the bases with heavy kraft cardstock, then used three different patterned papers and matching cardstock for each one of these cuties. I made several button die cuts out of each color of cardstock, layered them together and adhered them to the front of each holder. Here are close-up shots of each one…
