Perfect Gift for Labor Day

Hello and it’s the weekend! Not just any weekend - it’s a long Labor Day Weekend. Do you know someone who is going into labor soon?

Here is an 8" x 8" baby shadowbox I recently made for a coworker:

The standout in the shadowbox is the cool View Slide from
SVG Cut’s Bicycle Built For Two SVG Collection.

I took the patterned paper from Echo Park’s Bundle of Joy Collection and cut out elements to place in the slides. I also did some print and cut from the same digi kit and added some Trendy Twine to finish it off.

I just heard Labor Day is the 2nd busiest shopping day of the year behind Black Friday. If you are in the mood to shop stop by SVG Cuts ~ They are having a sale!

Enjoy your weekend!

Mini Back Packs & a Pumpkin

Are your kids back to school? Here are some cute little mini back packs I made for back to school. 

I filled them with some jolly rancher candies. 
They are from the SVG Cuts ~ Back to the Books SVG Kit.

They are about 4" high. I used Echo Park's Paper and Glue and did some fun print and cuts.

Have you seen the latest kit from SVG Cuts? It is called Bedtime Stories SVG Kit.

 I made the pumpkin from the kit and plan on making the awesome castle.
Here is my pumpkin:
It has a little top that comes off. I used We R Memory Keepers Black Widow Papers. They are last year's papers (I'm picking up Bewitched tomorrow!)  I stitched the papers with black thread. I added some twine from Trendy Twine and flair from Paper Play Studios.

Have a great week!

2nd BTS Teacher Gift

Hi there - hope your weekend is going great so far. Thought I'd share my second Back to School Teacher Gift. Just incase you missed my earlier one go check out my SVG Cuts Design Team Project here.

On this one I used the Echo Park Paper and Glue Digital Kit for the papers. I printed them out on my Epson 1430.
Love how you can play around with the size of the patterns for example I printed the green stripe at 100% then I printed the leaf for my apple at 25% - sorta made my own 12x12 and 6x6 version of the pattern. I also printed the one milk carton on blue paper - like having flexibility with a digital kit.

Here is a look at the full kit - you can grab it here.

I used my Trendy Twine to accent - even added a row of twine right above my bottom strip of letters. As I had my twine out thought that might be a great addition inside my holder - what teacher would not love getting a spool of twine?

Here is a bird's eye view. This uses the following SVG Cuts Kits:

My not-so-crafty coworker saw my earlier post on FB and said - you are one of those Mom’s I used to hate when my son was in school :) - Oh well, hate me!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Summer is coming to an end and it is back to school time. I always make a little something special to give to my sons’ teachers and this year I have a fun project to share. I created this holder for my latest SVG Cuts Design Team Project. Super easy to make especially if you have to make a few of them.

While you are over there make sure you pick up the latest kit ~ Back To The Books SVG Kit.

Have a crafty day!

A Fancy Card

I have another card to share with you today. I am very pleased with the results on this card. The doily cut along the edge really turned out great.
