Wizard Hat Luminary= FUN!

For today's project I used the new Halloween Soiree kit and I am loving the cute hat!  As soon as I Saw the cut outs with the colors peeking through I knew it would make a great luminary!  I also thought it would be fun to make as "wizard" hat rather than a regular witch hat.  :)  So we have moon's stars and a sparkly band.  A little vellum, a tea light and...Voila! It glows! A bunch of them for a table setting might be fun ;)



It's hard to believe that 6 months has flown by so quickly and that my time with the SVG Attic design team is concluding.  I have had a great time and enjoyed watching SVG Attic grow so quickly!  What an awesome team and I will miss working with everyone!  Thank you and I look forward to remaining a SVG Attic fan!!!

I made this fun school days memory box with the SVGAttic Nevermore kit.  I added a fun chalkboard paper cover to the box so it could be used for any grade and the color combo is good for boy or girl.  The box is super cute and fun, and it's easy to make!  I'm thinking about making more of these!  I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration.

Who is that lady?

Another fun project for the SVG Attic Inspiration Team!  
I really like the Day at the Races kit and especially the silhouette lady on the bag.  But  I thought it would be nice to use her as card too!  I am loving the way it turned out.  

I made the back and front of the bag at 50% size.  I scored the front along the edge and back of her hairline to glue the front and back together, making it easy to open too.  Because of the smaller size, I was able to give the hat some texture in my cuttlebug. Overall I am very pleased with how the project turned out.  I have left the inside blank with no sentiment as I haven't decided if it should be a birthday card for a special lady, or it could be used as a thank you card as well!  It also would make a lovely Mother's Day card... oh the possibilities! 


I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration project! :)
