Monster Treats ~ with Cyndy G.

I wanted to pop by and share with you a very quick and cute project today.  If you find that you need a quick and easy bag for giving some treats for Halloween this might be the project you are looking for.

Monster treat bags

This cute little monster bag can be found in the JGW Monstrously Munchie Party kit.
I whipped up these little bags for my kids and niece's.

I used some older paper I had from K & Company.  But don't you think these would look adorable in polka dots or stripes?  I enlarged this bag as big as it would go on my 12x12 mat.

Do what inspires you,

Mourner's Hat ~ with Cyndy G.

Today I want to share with you my Mourner's Hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit.  I have been wanting to get the hat made using my Graphic 45, Steampunk Spells paper.

I love this hat and I love how it looks with this paper.

I did have to cut out the image of the lady and the title Steampunk Spells to get them to show the way I wanted on the hat.  I am very please with how everything came together.

Thank you for stopping by!

Do what inspires you,

She's Having A Baby ~ with Cyndy G.

Having a baby is such a joyous time for a family.  I have had and continue to have a great deal of joy watching my children grow but I admit I love the "baby stage" the best.  For me there is nothing better than rocking a baby while they sleep on your shoulder.  Today I have a project to share that I made for very special members of our SVG Attic family, Mike and Kenzie.

3d paper bunny and baby card

I love the soft baby blues.  I used some older Making Memories, Pitter Patter paper I had for the bunny and the stunning paper on the card is Maja Design, Vintage Baby.

3d card with teddybear, rocking horse and carriage

For the base of the card I used the Step Card SVG Collection.  
I modified the width of the right side slightly so it would look more like a dresser.

To make the dresser I used some basic shapes.  I used the rectangle for the dresser and drawers and interstate sign for the molding on the bottom of the dresser.

The carriage and rocking horse I used are in the SDS Rockabye Baby Cards kit.
The teddy bear is in the JGW 3 Stockings kit.

I just love this JGW 3D Button Jointed Bunny.  I wanted to soften his features so I used Brown for the eyes and nose.  I would recommend this kit to anyone wanting to make an impression with paper crafting.  He is worth the time.  I have made two of these so far and I think I will make more!

If you want to try one with a pattern paper take your time to think through the direction of the pattern on each piece so you can configure it the right way on your cutting mat.

He even has a cute little tail!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project as I had making it.
Congratulations Mike and Kenzie!

Spooky Halloween ~ with Cyndy G

The count down is on, Halloween is three weeks away.  It always amazes me how time continues to speed up as you get older!  Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays.  I love all the different directions you can go with your decor; spooky and scary, or colorful and cute.  I choose the later for this project.  I decided to make the  Spooky Halloween Block Boxes from JGW Batwing Brew.

Spooky Halloween block set

I pulled out some of my old stash of paper and finally found a use for some 
We R Memory Keepers paper I have been holding on to.  

I love the way my witches broom from the JGW 3D Witch kit turned out.  
I used some crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam, this is one of my favorite ribbons!

Witch hat

The witches hat is also from JGW 3D Witch kit.  This hat goes together so quickly.

Block letter "S"

I added a few dots, buttons and a bat brad for dimension. 

Halloween block

I also added a touch of Trendy Twine Grape Fizz.

Block letter "y"

I just love how everything came together.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today.  
I look forward to seeing all your Halloween projects!
