Tent Cards

Hello all, I-team Sonja here. I needed to make some more elegant cards for a few people. After going through SVG Attic's website, I came across the tent cards file.

Now, this file doesn't just have four cards in it. It actually has three different sizes of cards with four different face shapes to each so all in all you get 12 card shapes as well as 12 matching envelopes with this file!

Because I needed something more elegant and less complicated than what I normally do with cards, I decided to go the embossing route.
These cards are great for creating 3D effects, however they still lie down flat for shipping.
I thought about doing a more 3D theme for each card, but I think the simplicity worked better for what I need them for.

Materials Used: 

DCWV Rose Quartz stack
SVG Attic 'Tent Cards' file
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studios-Designer Edition
Sizzix Big Shot
Darice embossing sleeves
Close to My Heart-Take Heart Occasions stamp set
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Uncle Sam

Good Morning! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here.  I just had to create Uncle Sam for you.  Uncle Sam is from JGW July 4th Block Party

I use pop dots to pop the hat brim, the eyes, and give added dimension to the star. 

I used Trendy Twine's Peppermint Icicle. I love the softness of the blue

I used Doodlebug's Yankee Doodle Paper for this.

I hope you enjoyed this. Thank you!

 As always, thanks for joining us!

July 4th with Lisa

Hi, everyone and welcome! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a fun idea using the JGW July 4th Block Party and JGW Sam's Hat Kits. I've been wanting to step outside my norm, try something different. I found this Chalk Board Easel stand at my local big box store and the wheels started turning. Of course, there was a chalk marker hanging next to it and I decided then I would try to stencil it because my penmanship is not the best. 
 I resized the July 4th from the JGW July 4th  Block Party Collection to fit the board and used a piece of white cardstock to create my stencil. Once the stencil was created it was just a matter of taping it down and using the chalk marker to create the sign. Honestly, this couldn't be any easier and I see a few more of these being made for Halloween and Christmas. 
 Next, I cut the stars from the JGW Sam's Hat Kit in all three sizes. I love that they are dimensional. Once I had them cut and "assembled" I attached them to a strip of paper so I could wrap fairy lights around it. 

I finished it off with a few die-cut circles just because it needed a little something else. 
So next time you are wanting one of those gorgeous chalkboard signs but dread the thought of writing on your beautiful clean chalkboard, make a stencil! 

 As always, thanks for joining us!

America "Wood" Blocks

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today is my turn to share on the SVG Attic.
If you are still looking for a fun Patriotic project I have the perfect one for you today.

These blocks look like wood blocks but they are 100% paper and so easy to do.

The file is from the JGW July 4th Block Party Kit and if you haven't seen it yet you need to check it out.

JGW July 4th Block Party

There are so many fun projects in this kit, I wasn't sure where to begin but my favorite is the America Blocks.

I cut all of my blocks from a brown cardstock and then inked them up a lot to give it a wood look.
To create the panels, just do an offset (silhouette) or a small square (Cricut) and glue to the front of each block.

Cut two copies of the letters.  Glue one to the front of the box and then layer the second letters with foam pop dots.

Add some twine and its all done.

Enjoy your beautiful "wood" blocks!

Sewing Framed Art with Beth

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I really was excited to make this project!  It is a vinyl saying with paper and lace accents in a frame.
The vinyl saying comes from the JGW Just Sew set.  I cut it out in black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and layered it on the patterned papers I chose from DCWV's Royal Gypsy stack.
I added navy lace hem facing around the bottom and used the thimble and diamond quilt block files from JGW Parlor Patchwork as well as the scissors file from JGW Just Sew to the left corner.  The finishing touch was a threaded needle that I wove into the lace.  I then placed it all into a 8.5x11" frame.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Happy Birthday ~ with Cyndy G

Hello, thank you for stopping by.  Today I am going to share a quick and easy Birthday card I made for my niece.  It is from JGW Take the Cake.

Birthday card

The paper I used is from Graphic 45 - A Time To Celebrate.

I also used some Tickled Pink and Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine as the string on my balloons.

Birthday card

I personalized it by adding my nieces' name to the banner and popped it with some foam tape.  This card is very easy to customized for any person young/old or boy/girl - all by the paper you select.

Thank you again for stopping by.

Floral Topiary

Hello all! Sonja with the I-team here to share with you a floral topiary pot. Now I added more flowers and greenery to mine, just to showcase a small example of what can become of this wonderful set coming soon.

There are a lot of new sets coming out so keep checking on SVG Attic's website.
However, I couldn't wait for this one to come out in a set so I grabbed the 3D Flower Ball and Topiary Pot from the Silhouette store and got to work! I decided to go the full topiary route instead of just doing the 3D flower ball, because well I've done plenty of flower balls this year already!

 One of the things I really enjoyed about this project was the ability to make each flower different by using a different sheet of cardstock.
 With all the paper from one stack, they all match.
 I just happened to have some gold brads on hand to help with the pop of texture.
For the bottom of the pot, I made smaller flower buds and added some green leaves and ivy.

The construction of the flower buds are actually rather simple. There are a lot though so plan ahead for some time to make this project!
Tutorials are found on Needles 'n' Knowledge blog.

Materials Used: 

DCWV 'Preserved Flower' stack
SVG Attic 3D Flower Topiary files
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio~Designers Edition
