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.

I fussy cut pieces from the Steampunk Debutante paper collection by Graphic 45 and added some metal embellishments.  I also used Mod Podge to protect and harden my finished project.  Thank you for stopping by today.

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.

Snowflake Ornament ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning crafters.  Today I have a fun little ornament using the Snowflake Stick Ornament that can be found in the JGW Snowflake Stars from SVG Attic.  I reduced the size of this ornament to a 4" circle.  Everything cut out perfectly at this size however I did decide not to use the "sticks" on this one.  I did cut them out but I just decided not to use them.

I used some of my Doodlebug paper and a few of their cut files for the center of my snowflakes.  At this small size it was easier to cut files that had just a few pieces, so I used pieces of candy.  I used Watermelon Taffy Trendy Bakers Twine from Annie's Paper Boutique, my personal favorite.

These little ornament look so yummy.  I love the bright colors.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Congratulations Beth ~ with Cyndy G

Hello crafty friends - Cyndy from Cyndy G Time Made for Me.  Today the Trendy Twine design team (current and alumnae) and some of this year's guest designers wanted to send a little love to Beth to celebrate her new baby girl, Autumn.  I made a crib gift box (unfortunately the file is no longer available) with a little surprise inside.


The colors of the box are pink, grey and white.  I used some Totally White Trendy Bakers Twine from Annie's Paper Boutique.  Did you know you can color this twine?  I didn't, however I didn't need to color mine this time because I wanted it white.

Winds in the east, there’s a mist coming in... ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning crafty friends today I am sharing a very fun project with files from SVG Attic and inspired by the adorable Umbrella 3D Hanging Ornament.  I used several different files to make this:

Mary Poppins accessories - Black umbrella with parrot handle, black pill hat with flowers and carpet bag

I am very pleased with how everything turned out!  To get the accessories to the right size I layed the pieces out on my mat with the handle to the umbrella and shrunk them until I felt the size looked right.  The bag is 3.25" wide and the hat is about 2.5" wide.

The handle of the umbrella is made using the head of the eagle and the hat is the Leprechaun hat with the top gently pushed in and covered with "trash" piece from the rim.  I had to cut part of the handle off so the parrot (eagle) head didn't have to be too big to cover it.  I also wanted my bag to close so I carefully folded the sides in and glued the bag shut.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today, I really enjoyed bringing this vision to life.

Christmas in July - Part II ~ with Cyndy G

Happy Friday crafters!  Today I am sharing a fun project using the Six Point Star Snowflake from the Winter Illuminations Kit.  I love this file.  I loved the snowflakes just as they are but I wanted to take them to the next level.

I used Graphic 45 - Nutcracker Sweet and did a lot of fussy cutting.  The base of the snowflake has three layers, two cut out of patterned paper and one out of thin chipboard.  I used Mod Podge on each individual layer and added the dimensional diamonds to the center.  I used Mod Podge to glue all three layers together and let them dry overnight.  This made the ornament very sturdy.

 While the base was drying I cut multiples of the same image and layered them with foam tape for dimension.  I inked all the edges and used Mod Podge on all the individual pieces.  While the pieces were still wet I molded them, adding waves in the banners, ripples in the ballerina skirts and molded the page cut out to make it look more like a book.  These were also left to dry overnight.

The next day everything was ready to assemble.  This is one of my favorite paper collections and I am very please with how my ornaments turned out.
