We're All a Little Mad Here ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning crafty friends, thank you for joining me.  Today I have a project from SVG Attic using the Mourners Hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit.  This is my favorite hat file!

I shrunk my hat it stands only five inches tall.  I love these hats in this size.

I added some embellishments that I got from Aliexpress.  I love the prices of this store and the shipping was reasonable.  Most items arrived within three weeks.

 I have always struggled in the past when putting the rim on this hat.  This time I glued the pieces one at a time to the rim and then glued the upper part of the hat together.  It was so much easier to put together this way!  Thank you for stopping by.

Specially For You ~ with Cyndy G.

Happy Friday today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I made the tulips bouquet pop up card from the Tulips Festival Kit.  This is such a beautiful card!

Handmade card in soft pastels

I used Graphic 45 - Once Upon A Springtime paper.  I love the soft colors.  I changed the center of the card from the oval to the more decorative shape from the inside.  Since my papers are so similar in tone I inked all the edges to define the two different papers.

Pop up center in card with a flower bouquet

Since I am giving this card to my friend for her birthday - 
I stamped "Happy Birthday" using my Graphic 45 - Time To Flourish stamp set.

Pop up center in card with a flower bouquet

I just love how the flowers turned out.  I used a coral and then a pink ink around the edges of the flowers.  I also inked the basket in brown.  When making this card make sure to take extra care when gluing the inside panel.  It is important that the seams line up exactly.

Thank you for stopping by.

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.

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.

Paper lantern with fairies inside sitting on flowers

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.

Paper lantern with fairies inside sitting on flowers

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.

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.

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.

Trendy Bakers Twine Steampunk Air Balloon ~ GDT Cyndy G.

Hello crafty friends - Cyndy from Cyndy G Time Made for Me.  Today I am sharing my last GDT project for the month.  I made a Steampunk Air Balloon using the Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine.  The svg files are from SVG Attic/Snapdragon Snippets.  I used the Hot Air Balloon Box and the Submarine 3d Box.

Steampunk submarine air balloon

I ran the "rope" panels through my Xyron machine and applied the Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine to the front of them.  It was very easy to do but if you are going to try this make sure not to pull your twine tight that will cause the twine to separate from the panel.  I braided some of the Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine and attached an anchor and made a couple tassels.


Thank you for stopping by.  I have enjoyed being here.  
I hope I have given you some new ideas for ways of using your Trendy Bakers Twine.

Beautiful baby card with clear blocks filled with candy

I made a card using the Scrap Panel card from Snapdragon Snippets and paper by Maja Designs - Vintage Baby.  The color of the Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine matches perfectly.  I love how delicate the twine looks with the card.

For the blocks I used the Candy Cubes - 2" x 2" Square Clear Boxes and transformed them into baby blocks using the Alpha Blocks cutting file from SVG Attic glued to the front of the cube. Then I added a little bow of Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine.  This would be such a cute favor box at a baby shower and they are so easy to make!  I filled the boxes with pink and silver wrapped candy kisses.

Trendy Bakers Twine - These Boots Were Made for Walkin ~ with Cyndy G

Hello crafty friends - Cyndy from Cyndy G - Time Made for Me.  I am excited to be with you for the  month of April as a Guest Designer with Trendy Twine!  


This month we are featuring Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.  

3d paper cowboy boot with a pink and blue twine fringe around the bottom half of boot

I decided to make the cowboy boot from Snapdragon Snippet because the fringe detail was a perfect place to use the Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.  To make the fringe I used double-sided tape along the top edge of the detail piece and looped the twine up and down across the entire length making sure to apply pressure so the twine would stay stuck in place.  Then I took a pair of scissors and clipped the bottom loops and attached the fringe to the boot.

The paper is Carta Bella - Giddy Up Girl - it matches the Cotton Candy Trendy Twine perfectly.

Besides the wide array of colors I love the quality of  Trendy Twine.  
It stays twisted even after you cut it.

The paddles even spin - it is a wonderful design.  This is a more advanced file but like most of Jodi's designs I put together all the individual pieces and then assemble it.  It is definitely worth the time to put together - it is such a beautiful project.  Thank you for stopping by.

Thinking of You ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello today I am sharing a card I made using files from My Scrap Chick - Lucky Rainbow Bears.  I wanted to make a Spring Card and after all the rain we have had lately I thought I needed to see a rainbow.

Handmade card of a bear floating over a rainbow with a cloud balloon

I laid you card out on the mat of my cutting software using a 4.75 x 6.75 square so I could get the sizing I liked.  Then I cropped the edges of the sun and clouds to fit within that space.

Handmade card of a bear floating over a rainbow with a cloud balloon

I used some Orangesicle Trendy Twine as the strings to my balloon cloud and inked the edges of my clouds and overalls pocket.  Then I popped up some of the clouds and the bears head with foam tape.  The finished result is a fun cheery card.  Thank you for stopping by today.
