Happy Fall ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  For all my east coast friends, I hope you are staying safe as Hurricane Dorian passes.  I know we are still two weeks away from fall but I'm tired of being so hot!  Today I wanted to celebrate the up coming season of fall.  It is my favorite time of year.  Not because of pumpkin spice but because of the cooler weather.  Today I have two new box cards in the store at My Scrap Chick that are similar but give you two different perspectives.

I have a Vintage Truck Box Card styled after the 1939 Ford Truck.  The side view of this truck showcases the fender, running board and unique front grill.

I also have the Fall Truck Box Card.  This truck is styled after the 1947 Chevy Truck.  Both trucks are hauling pumpkins and sunflowers.

Both cards are great for all your fall celebrations.  Thank you for stopping by today.

If you make any of the files from My Scrap Chick we would love for you to share them with us on our facebook fan page:

Ahoy Matie ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning crafters.  I hope your weekend is off to a good start.  I'm looking forward to mine because after weeks of temperatures in the 90s our highs are only going to be in the 70s today!  To kick off the weekend I want to share some of the new box cards that can be found at My Scrap Chick.

The first card I'm going to share is the Crayon Box Card.  This card is perfect as a welcome back to school card for students and teachers.  It is bright and cheery.  It is quick and easy to put together, the panels on front are layered to create the stripe effect so there are no small pieces to handle, even a child can assemble it.

The next card is another colorful card and one that just popped in my head.  The Gumball Machine Box Card.  I have never seen another like it.  This card is sure to impress.  You can even add a gumball under the dispenser if you would like!

The next two cards I'm going to share with you I have been thinking about for long time.  These are great for themed parties.  Obviously, a pirate theme but they could also work for a Harry Potter theme or how about an escape room party.  There are so many uses for these cards.  Up first is the Treasure Box Box Card.  It's full of jewels and lots of gold and has a treasure map shaped sentiment panel on the back.

Finally is the Pirate Ship Box Card.  This is another unique card.  The ship is crashing through the waves.  I curved the sails at the bottom with my finger to give them a little more dimension.  There is a little movement in the sails.  The card has a support "beam" that prevents the sails from flopping over.  TIP:  Use good card stock for the base of the sails so your card will stand tall. 
 Aye Aye Captain.


I hope you enjoy all the new cards.  I look forward to seeing what you do with them.  If you make any of the files from My Scrap Chick we would love for you to share them with us on our facebook fan page:

PS - All of the cards have a finished size of 5x7 so they will fit in an A5 envelope.

Toy Box Box Card - with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I have a fun new card to share with you, the Toy Box Box Card.  This cute card was inspired by the toy box my children had when they were little.  The toy box was a central piece of furniture in our family room for a lot of years.  I miss the days of watching the kids leaning into it searching for that one toy.  What a fun card for boys and girls alike.  The card goes together quickly so if you are searching for a card for that special toddler this may be just what you need.

Ice Cream Party

Hello crafty friends.  I want to take a minute and share with you some new and fun Ice Cream files I created.  These projects are so yummy. 

The first project I am going to  share is the Banana Split Box Card.  It is three layers of ice cream goodness.  There is ice cream with sauce, bananas and whipped cream and cherries all in a silver bowl.  Looks good enough to eat!  The card folds flat for mailing.

The Ice Cream Sundae treat box is a perfect size for using as treat boxes for your Ice Cream party!  This cute little box is 2.5" x 2.5" square at the bottom and stands 4.5" tall.  It is filled with three scoops of delicious ice cream and  Pirouline Crème Filled Wafers.  Yummy!

The last project I'm going to share is a Ice Cream Truck box card.  This box card has two layers of ice cream fun.  Who doesn't like to see the ice cream truck drive through their neighborhood.  What wonderful memories.
