Duck and Duckling Father's Day Card ~ with Cyndy G.

Good morning.  I can't believe how fast this year is flying by.  Sunday is Father's day and if you are looking for a quick card to make with the kids I've got the perfect project for you.  This project was made using files from My Scrap Chick.  I used the Box in a Card - Square, Duck and Duckling Silhouettes and Duck and Cattails Silhouettes.

The paper is Graphic 45, Good Ole Sport.  This file is easy enough for your children to put together and they will be so proud of the what they were able to make.

My kids love making box cards.  They have a great WOW factor.  
This looks so masculine and the duckling makes it perfect for Father's Day.

Fairy Dust Lantern ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning and happy Friday.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I created a fairy house using the 3d Hanging Lantern and Graphic 45 - Fairy Dust.

I love the way the lantern went together.  Everything fits together very tightly especially the top.  Take your time and work the top piece in carefully or you will crush it.  The lantern is small, only 3x3 square and about 7.5 inches tall including the ring on top. I changed the window cutouts so you could see the inside of the lantern better.  I used the Circle grille on all four panel windows and cut out the center to open it up.

I used small paper roses, daisy and mushrooms in the center to place my fairy on.  I inserted the wires from the flowers through the tiny hole in the center of the bottom piece and twisted them together underneath.  Then I built up some mushrooms I had cut out of the Fairy Dust paper using foam tape and glued them behind the center cluster of flowers and mushrooms.

Farm Fresh ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I used the 3D Garden Spade and made home decor piece.


I fussy cut vegetables out of Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home Collection and added them to the garden spade.  I also used a title from Authenique Paper Homestead Collection.



I used Modge Podge on each individual piece to help protect the paper from tearing and inked all the edges.  Then I used foam tape to add dimension between the vegetables.  The finished project can be hung by the hole in the handle or displayed on an easel.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Farm Fresh Eggs - with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from My Scrap Chick.  I used the Pedestal Sign Wood Knot, the Chocolate Egg Basket SinglePaper Egg and the Farm Fresh Eggs to make a cute home decor piece.


I used Authentique Paper - Homestead Collection.  I just love how it turned out!
I sized the eggs almost in half so they would fit in my little basket.


The paper is so cute and fits the project just right.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Mother Goose ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from My Scrap Chick.  I used the Pop Up Frames: Classic Tall to make some cute home decor pieces.  They even come with a stand so you use them on a dresser or shelf.

I used Graphic 45 - Mother Goose.  My local Tuesday Morning had this paper on sale and I bought all that they had.  I used the Story time cards to make my pictures.


I only used three layers of the frame and I fussy cut my images and used foam tape to give them a 3d effect.  I love this type of crafting.  I remember when I was young my Mom would take us out to look at the outdated calendars and let us pick the one we liked and we would make these pictures.  Such fond memories!


These would look so cute in a baby's nursery.


Thank you for stopping by.

By the Sea ~ with Cyndy G

Happy Friday.  Today I am sharing a project using files from SVG Attic's - JGW Fathoms Deep.  I used the top piece of the Claim Shell Box.  I got the idea from Annes Paper Creations.

First I cut the base of the shell three times - once out of Chip board and twice out of Vanill Cardstock to cover the front and back of the chipboard.  Next I cut the panels out of decorative paper.  I used Graphic 45 - By The Sea.  I raised every other section of the shell by using strips of foam tape under the panels to give the shell the feeling of ripples that you find on a real claim shell.


I did a lot of fussy cutting and used Modge Podge on all the pieces before assembling the project.  This helps protect your fussy cut pieces from tears it and really makes the base solid.  Finally I added a self adhesive picture hook to the back so it can be hung.  The overall size of the project is about 5x7.  
Thank you for stopping by.

Alice Pocket Watch ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing a project I made using files from SVG Attic/Snapdragon Snippets.  I used the Pocket Watch Face as the base of my project.  I out the pocket watch four times - two in chipboard and two with patterned paper.


The paper is Graphic 45 - Halloween in Wonderland.  I love this paper and decided to do a dimensional wall hanging using it and the pocket watch.  I did a lot of fussy cutting for this project.  I used foam tape to give it extra dimension.


I finished off my project with Modge Podge.  This will help project the paper and add strength to the overall project.  Thank you for stopping by.
