Gift Card Holders ~ with Cyndy G

Today I am sharing some gift card holders I made using a couple of files by Lori Whitlock that I purchased in the Silhouette Design Store.  These are super easy!  I used stickers to customized mine.

This little card holder fits on one sheet of 6x6 paper.  So I used up several sheets I had left over.  Then I decided to add dimensional stickers to them instead of the included design.

I also made a few of the Santa and Snowman gift card holders.  They are so cute and make giving a gift card a little more personal.  I can't wait to hand out mine this year!

Mourners Hat ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing one of my favorite files from SVG Attic - the Mourner's Hat from JGW Raven Quest.  I just love how this file comes together.  It's not to hard and the result is stunning.

I used some Mod Podge on my hat to help protect it and I love the result!

It took a little bit of work to get the flower looking like I wanted but I am please with the end result.  I painted it with some colored glitter glue.  I think I will be using more of this stuff!

Carousel Dreams ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Thank you for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a new kit in the SVG Attic Store that I created, CG Carousel Dreams.  I hope you love it as much as I do.  I used Authentique Imagine.  It is beautiful paper that fit my vision perfectly!

Carousel horse gift bag, treat bag, centerpiece, box card

This card has an insert that pulls out.  
Mine is white on the opposite so that a message can be written.

Carousel pull out card

On my boxcard I popped the gold trim on top of the carousel and the mirror with some foam tape to give the card a little more dimension.

The Horse centerpiece looks stunning and it is very easy to assemble.  The base pieces all fit inside one another (three pieces) then you insert the post, I filled the bottom third of mine with glass beads for weight, and glue the finial on top.  Once you have your horse assembled you glue her to the front.

This little treat bag is one piece and goes together very quickly.

Finally, my favorite piece in the kit.  The carousel gift bag.  
This bag is stunning and can be decorated, like shown or it can be left in a solid color.
It looks beautiful either way.

I would love to see your versions of this kit.

Halloween Puzzle ~ with Cyndy G.

I have had this puzzle on my Pinterest board for a long time now and thought it was time to give it a try.  The original design was done by Thienly for SVG Cuts.  You can find all the instructions for making it here.   I decided to use files by Doodlebug that I purchased from the Silhouette Design Store or on Lori Whitlock's site here, they are so cute and worked really well on this project.

Aren't they just adorable!

ghost puzzle

My daughter told me I needed to make a lot of these and sell them because everyone will want one.  She is the sweetest.

Frankenstein puzzle

The great thing about these is they are 6x6 so you can use some of your 6x6 paper pads to make these.

Bat puzzle

Each block is a 2" square.  To make the puzzle picture, you first assemble the image on a 6x6 sheet of paper and then cut it into 2" squares.  After you have cut the squares you attach one section to each of the cubes you have made.

Mad scientist puzzle

It does take a little time to put all the pieces together but there is nothing too difficult about this project.
When you are finished seal your work with a little mod podge.

Monster Fingers ~ with Cyndy G

I have been busy making sure I am ready for the Holidays this year.  Every year I plan to make things and always run out of time.  So this year I am trying to get ahead of the game.  I made some Halloween treat boxes by Jamie Cripps.  I picked them up in the Silhouette Store.

Halloween Treat boxes - Mummy fingers, Werewolf fingers, Witch fingers and skeleton fingers

These were very easy to put together and they are so cute.  Each finger is a box.

Witch finger treat box

The boxes are pretty small.  You could fit tootsie rolls, smarties or any other small rolled candy in them. 

Werewolf finger treat box

The werewolf and mummy fingers are my favorite.

Mummy finger treat box

They would be good for a party since they go together so quickly.  You could make a lot in a short amount of time.  Plus I was able to fit four sets of fingers per color on one 12x12 sheet of paper.

Skeleton finger treat box

Thank you for stopping by.

Fall Is In The Air? ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, today I am bringing you a project from My Scrap Chick.  Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons and since finishing "Christmas in July" with My Scrap Chick I have been in the Holiday spirit.

Today I am hoping to hurry along fall with this cute and easy project from My Scrap Chick.  

Fall paper boxes

The boxes go together so quickly and they really make a statement.  I hot glued some glass stones 
(the ones you get at the hobby stores) inside the boxes so they wouldn't fall over so easily.

Fall paper blocks

I got the ribbon at Hobby Lobby and I just love it.  It comes with the beads on it.

Christmas in July ~ with Cyndy G

Today I am sharing a box card I created using My Scrap Chick's Christmas Nativity 1- Manger and Box in a Card A2 (square rounded).  
I just love box cards and the adorable MSC files are perfect for creating custom box cards.

Nativity Box Card

I started by putting all the pieces together on my desktop and scaling everything down so that the Manger was just slightly larger than the back of the box card.  The Manger is approximately 3.25" wide and Joseph is just a little over 2" tall.

Nativity Box Card

I inked all the edges and added some foam tape behind the star.  I love how everything came out.  Hope you have a wonderful week and don't forget Christmas is just 173 days away, you better get busy if you are going to make your Christmas cards this year :)

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello, today I am sharing a beautiful Sunflower 3D Hex Box from the kit JGW Sunflower Sunshine by SVG Attic. 
Everything in this kit is stunning.  I made the box as a gift for a friend of mine.  I know she will love it.

Sunflower Box

The box is surprisingly easy.  You just need some time to put all the petals together.  
It was also the first time I have done a rosette.  I had my son help me hold it while I glued it down.

I used Graphic 45 - French Country.  It is out right now as a Deluxe Collectors Edition.

Thanking our Volunteers ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello everyone.  Thank you for stopping by.  This week is National Volunteer Week.  If you work with some amazing Volunteers - take a moment to say Thank You!  If you are a volunteer - thank you for all you do!  I happen to work for a organization that has a great many volunteers.

Today we took some time out of our day today to honor our volunteer and say thank you.  Since tape won't stick to our office walls I decided to use the Big 3D Pop Up Letters to create a banner on the table.

Pop up Thank you Sign

Since the lunch was for our Master Gardeners, I used the adorable Garden Gnomes to accent the sign.  The paper is Graphic 45 - Enchanted Forest.

I just love the gnomes, they are so cute :)
