DT Day with Sandra: Easter Peeps Layout

Happy LEAP DAY!!!! It's SANDRA here and for this week's project  I made  a pre-made layout for this year's Easter pics, especially after seeing these super cute cuts from the NEW set called EASTER ELEMENTS by SVG ATTIC I could NOT resist using this set ASAP lol!

The patterned papers I used here were actually from a set I got from the $1 bins at Target last year these papers are teenager themed but I think they worked out good with my Peeps! The stickers I used are thick glitter foam stickers from Creative Imaginations. I also added green pastel ribbon, pearls, purple Martha Stewart glitter and sprayed everything with "Yellow Daisy" Glimmer Mist, I just love the shimmer on the peeps in the pic above.

I cut everything here including the bunny and chick peeps, and also the butterfly with SCAL 3 and my Silhouette Cameo.

Be sure to check out my post's and the rest of the DT's daily posts for inspiration HERE on the SVG Attic Blog, along with our new color challenge!

Here's the set I used Easter Elements

DT Tuesday with Tee - Fondant Flowers

Hi All, Today I want to share with you a cake I made this past weekend using the rose from the Be Mine collection. I am so in love with this rose that I HAD to try using it with fondant and loved the result. I used a 50/50 mix of fondant and gum paste and rolled out about 1/4" thick.

Leprechaun Hat using St. Patricks Day "Go Green" Set

Hello everybody and happy Monday!!  Nicole here, hoping you had a great weekend and that your Monday is off to a good start:-)  I wanted to share with you a shaped card I made using the Leprechaun Hat from the "Go Green" svg set.  I created a shadow using SCAL 3 and welded 2 of the shadows together to create the base of the card.  I cut out 2 hats, one in black for the outside of the card and the other in a light green for the inside of the card.  I did a little embossing with my cuttlebug, a little doodling with my white gel pen and used some green liquid pearls to jazz up the card.  The sentiment is hand written by moi.  I hope this inspires your creativity for St. Patrick's Day.  There are some great sets at SVG Attic to help you get your Irish on:-)  Check out the set I used and the Celtic Knots set (I will have a project for you in the future using this set:-)

DT Tuesday with Tee - Give a Hoot

I am so excited to show you the cake I made using one of the owls from Give a Hoot svg collection.

Cutting fondant with a cutter can be tricky - I have learned the best way to get a clean cut is to first roll out your fondant at about 1/8" then pop it in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Cut your imagine then pop it back in the freezer for another 5 minutes. This will make it easier for you to transfer without your object stretching.

For this party I also make 100 cupcake boxes and a smash cake. You can find more pictures on my blog

See you next time ~~Tee

Treat box and gift card holder

Happy Friday everyone, Nicole here and today is my day to post a project for SVG Attic!! 

My project for today is a cute box and gift card holder.  I made this for a family friend who is celebrating her 14th birthday on Saturday and has invited all 3 of my daughters to her party.  This particular 14 year old has a sweet tooth so we will be filling the box with some sugary treat along with a gift card to one of her favorite stores:-)  

Inside of gift card holder

I used the puffy boxes svg collection to make the box.  I wanted it to resemble a cupcake so I cut it out twice in two different papers.  I trimmed the blue polka dotted paper so that it looked like a cupcake wrapper.  I then glued the pink box inside of the polka dotted "wrapper".  Using the same bright colors I made the gift card holder using the be mine set.  This gift card holder is so quick and easy to make - I know I will be using it a lot because we do a lot of gift cards for presents.  But, don't let this set fool you, even though it appears to be a Valentine/love related set, it could be used for so many different occasions.  Included in this set is a 3d rose!!  We all know that 3d paper flowers are all the rage right now.  I am currently working on putting some together.  There is a great tutorial for putting these flowers together on youtube.

DT Day with Sandra

Good morning! It's SANDRA here and today is my day to post on the SVG Attic Blog and I made a 2 page layout featuring one of my favorite sets which is Erin's Scalloped Trims, I guess I love this set so much because it's a great alternative to border punches plus it's a major space saver LOL! These pictures were taken at the San Diego Zoo and I used a few cuts from my Paisley, Tags, Bags Boxes & More, and Life's A Party Cricut cartridges to create these layouts, I also added some bling on top of the borders from SVG Attic.

Here's the set I used from the SVG Attic store ERIN'S SCALLOPED TRIMS

Valentine's Elements Wreath

Hey Y'all!

It's Carley here and today I am going to show you a fabulous project I made for my son's preschool for their Valentine's Day party! I used the super cute new set called Valentine Elements shown here:
Isn't that just so cute? Well I am in love with lady bugs so of course I chose the love bug to put in the center of my wreath. Here is the finished product and then I will tell you the tools you will need and how you can make this super easy wreath!
So I started with a Styrofoam wreath and cute hot pink tissue paper in 5x7 rectangles. I punched holes in the wreath close together but it is up to you on this as to how full you want the wreath. I filled the holes with hot glue and then put the tissue paper in the holes with the end of a paintbrush. Ta Da that is it! I then used my cameo to cut out the love bug svg and assembled it and modge podged it to make it more sturdy. I attached it to the middle and tied pink tulle to the top for the bow! I thought it turned out so super cute and seriously it was so easy.
I think it would be super cute for a girls' room but you know I am lacking in that area so I stick to Valentine's Day :) I hope you enjoy my wreath and go buy the Valentine's Elements file right now here! I hope you have a fabulous Friday!

To make these diapers I used some cute paper from Hobby Lobby with satin ribbon and stamped the Thank You sentiment on every diaper.

Easter Collection Preview

So I thought I would preview a new set that I will be releasing for SVG Attic in the near future and preview my stamp line available at right now!

I used the Bunny Love stamp set, the matchbox file from the Be Mine SVG Collection and the bunnies are from a new collection releasing in a couple weeks, it has a TON of goodies in it for you! . I also used paper from Marcella K~Monkey Around (Must have been one of the very first paper pads I EVER purchased!), and twine is from The Twinery! I just love Easter!

Here is the project. It was very simple and quick!

Isn't it cute! You can use whatever colors you choose. Those adorable bunny marshmallow treats come in every color under the sun! I made this specifically for a boy and I think it came out great! The box is pre-scored and very easy to assemble, the hardest part is choosing the paper!

See that cute sentiment! I used the Bunny Love Stamp 'Ems created by SVG Attic for Shabby Chic Stamp Co. They are free downloadable SVG files for you to cut out with your electronic cutter and compatible software (SCAL or MTC) that match the shape of your stamps perfectly!

Thanks for joining me again here! Have a great super crafty day!

Heart Basket and Penguin Valentine Card

Happy Friday everyone!!  This is Nicole posting for my first time here at SVG Attic.   I am so excited to be a part of the SVG Attic design team and after working with Jessica's files I am even more excited. I was sooo happy when I saw the 3d Valentine boxes in the Heart Shaped Box set.  I decided to work with this set give the woven basket a try.  I love the mix of brown (which resembles chocolate:-) with red.  I also made the penguin card using the My Valentine set.  I referred to the pdf files for both of these projects that come with the file set when you purchase them.  Let me say that both of these projects went together quickly!!  I highly recommend using a wet glue with a bit of "forgiveness" when putting the basket together that way it gives you time to shape it as you are glueing it.

I really want to point the pdf files out to those of you who may be new to using svg files.  I know a lot of us have gotten Silhouette Cameos over the last few months and it may be your first time playing with svg files.  I work with SCAL 3 (sure cuts a lot).  The SVG Attic files come with a pdf file that give you help in putting together your projects.  I love the way Jessica makes her files easy to size.
