Trendy Twine Birthday Surprise ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, today we are celebrating Leslie of Annie's Paper Boutique with a card shower.  Happy Birthday Leslie!  I hear Leslie loves Hello Kitty and pink.  A woman after my own heart.  I had a hard time picking which Hello Kitty I wanted to make.  I decided to made the Baker Hello Kitty.


I used Posy Trendy Bakers Twine on Kitty's bow and Chocolate Truffle Trendy Bakers Twine on the bottom of my cupcake.  The card base is DCWV Confetti and the apron and chef hat are the pink checker from Authentique - Fabulous 50's.


I cut one of the 6x6 cards from the DCWV stack for the inside of the card.

Pilgrim Hat Centerpiece ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, today I'm bringing you a project from SVG Attic.  I made the Pilgrim Hat from SDS Pilgrims Prayer.  I think this is going to make a beautiful centerpiece on my Thanksgiving table.  The hat is so easy to put together and it comes with all the embellishments you need.  I did add a burlap flower to my hat.

Jingle All The Way ~ with Cyndy G

Happy Friday.  Today I am sharing a project using files from SVG Attic.  I know I have been doing a lot of Christmas already but I have a large family and in order for me to get everything done that I would like I have to start this early.  Today I've got a super cute treat box, the Reindeer Candy Cane Box.  This box is so cute and very easy.  This is what I am going to let me kids make for their classmates this year.

I decided I wanted my box to be for candy without the candy canes.  The optional file is included with your download.

Poinsettia Ornament ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I used the Poinsettia 3D Topper from JGW Christmas Botanical to make these beautiful ornaments.  The paper is Maja Designs.  This is beautiful paper from Sweden. 






I decided to go with some different colors with these ornaments.  The blue one is my favorite.  I made these smaller than the original size.  The base of the ornament is about 5" wide.  Thank you for stopping today.

Steampunk Gears ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Thank you for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a project using files from SVG Attic.  I used the gears from Steampunk Gears Cogs and Sprockets 3 as the base for my Steampunk Debutante wall hanging.

I added a solid background piece by breaking apart the main gear and removing all the extra pieces.  I cut three layers for the back for added stability.

Sunflowers ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning, today I am sharing a project using files from My Scrap Chick.  I used the Sunflower 3D Rosette and leaves which can be found in the Sunflowers and Bumble Bees Bundle to make this project.  I found this cute little tin milk can on clearance at Hobby Lobby and immediately thought "This would be so cute with a sunflower in it."

I shrunk the size of the sunflower by about 45% since my can is only four inches tall.  I cut an image from Graphic 45 - French Country and glued it to the front and added a bow.  I think it is just adorable!

I don't know if you have ever used any of the rosettes from My Scrap Chick but they are Amazing!  Usually when I am making a rosette I am struggling to hold it together which I try to hot glue it and always burn my fingers.  The rosettes that My Scrap Chick makes have little thread holes at the bottom.  After you fold them and make your circle you thread string through the holes and gently tighten until your rosette is created, knot your string and you have a rosette.  No more burned fingers!  The only thing I would caution about is to make sure you don't use sewing thread, it would be too thin and would rip right through your holes.  I have found that twine works great.  Thank you for stopping by today.
