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.

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.

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.

Trendy Bakers Twine Sweet Baby Girl ~ with Cyndy G

Hello crafty friends - Cyndy from Cyndy G Time Made for Me.  Today I am sharing a project using two of the featured products this month:  Cotton Candy Trendy Bakers Twine and the Candy Cubes - 2" x 2" Square Clear Boxes.

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.

Catch the Wind ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, today I am sharing a project with designs from SVG Attic/Snapdragon Snippets the Windmill 3D Model.  I used the beautiful Graphic 45 - Fairy Dust.  I think it fit this project perfectly.

3D paper windmill

I reduced the size of this file.  The overall height of my windmill is about eight inches.

I enjoyed taking the pictures for this project.  The flowers were in bloom and it was a beautiful day.

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.

Gift Box ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello, today I am sharing a pretty box from SVG Attic/Snapdragon.  It is the Tall Box with Lid.  This is a very nice size and it is easy to put together.  It makes a perfect gift box.  You could decorate it for an occasion.  I have used Graphic 45 - Time to Celebrate because I am going to use mine for a birthday.

Tall gift box

I used some crinkle ribbon around the box and a button as the accent on top.  You could also use a large bead or a draw pull.  I just love this ribbon!

The box stands just over 9" tall and is 4" square.  Thank you for stopping by.

Spring Showers ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am bringing a cute little card from My Scrap Chick.  The Rainboot Shape Card.  I just love this card.  It could be use for so many different occasions.  A thank you card, get well card or a welcome spring card.

Rainboot card


I used some Heidi Grace paper I've had for a long time - waiting for the right project.  
It fits this boot perfectly.

This card is very fitting for our weather here in NC.  Rainy one day and bright and sunny the next. 
I love the garden at my office this time of year.  The daffodils are always the first flowers to pop out and remind us that Springs is coming!  Thank you for stopping by.

Lemonades ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, today I am sharing a project using files from Snapdragon Snippets.  Box 3d Window Icing Accents.  This is a very simple little box that is perfect for some cookies or some other small trinket.  I sized mine just a little smaller so that I could cut it out of one sheet of paper.

Small box

I used Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian for this project.  The chipboard cut out fit the lid perfectly.
I tied it off with a piece of crinkle ribbon from my stash.

Small box with lemon cookies on a plate

The whole thing makes a sweet little gift to let someone know you are thinking about them.

Wondering what kind of cookies these are?  They are Girl Scout Cookies - Lemonades.  If you haven't gotten your cookies yet but you would love to have some shipped to your door - you can order from this link until the end of March.  

Thank you for stopping by.

Under the Sea ~ with Cyndy G

Today I am sharing a project from My Scrap Chick.  I used Under the Sea and Box in a Card - Square files.  The Under the Sea files are set up to be used for a scrapbook page but I thought they would make a great Box card!

3d card with mermaid

The paper I used is Doodlebug - Under the sea.  Very fitting :)

Mermaid box card

To size the pieces I put everything on my mat (box card and mermaid files) and then scale the files down until they fit in the box card.  I sized my mermaid a little too big so I attached her a little lower in the box.  I would have liked her to be small enough that the seaweed and fish behind her were more visible.

Folded card

Box cards are definitely my favorite type of card to make!  Thank you for stopping by today.

Sweet Lambs ~ with Cyndy G

Well I'm back after a long deserved break.  It was very nice to be able to take some time to relax with family and not worry about deadlines of any kind but now it's time to get back to work!  Today I have a cute project using two darling files from Snapdragon Snippets - Lamb shaped card and Lamb or Sheep box.


 I used AC Cardstock on both projects and a little bit of 
Trendy Twine - Watermelon Taffy - one of my favorites - to give my box a finishing touch.


Both files are very easy to assemble.  It is a project you could do with young children.  The box would make a cute teacher gift for Easter or you could quickly make a bunch for your Sunday school class. 


Thank you for stopping by today.
