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.

Basketball Treats ~ with Cyndy G

Hello crafty friends thank you for stopping by.  I have a project from My Scrap Chick to share with you.  I combined the Tall Test Tube Holder and Basketball Allstars to make a fun treat for the boys basketball team.

I used the pieces for the court on the back of the test tube holder.

I had room on the front of the holder for the MVP title.

I used the bear and basketball as the tag.  You could customize these in the color of your favorite team.  They are very quick and easy to put together so you could recruit the help of your children and make them for the whole team.  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.

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.

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.

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.
