My project today is using the Deep Lid Boxes kit  and Mom's English Garden.


The box is a snap to put together and so is the beautiful Gerber daisy.  I quickly quilled a center for the daisy so to make a 'handle" for the little box.  I chose some fun summer colors and now I have a cute box to use for a gift, or even for decoration!

I hope you enjoyed today's project and that you are inspired to enter before the end of the month.

Gratitude- with SVG Attic

This week's project I used the G is for Gratitude kit and made the quick and simple, yet lovely thank you card.  I mighta made it in one of my favorite combos- note: watermelon.  I also wanted the flowers to have a little more- so I double layered them- basically making my own kind of flower.

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! :)

Box Card Obsession

I have had such a great time making these box cards!  I wanted to make all of the special ladies for our family one, and did!  Thankfully SVGCuts came to rescue with a well timed kit, as I had been working on some of my own ideas, but as usual, things were too busy to do it the way I wanted.  This kit made it easy, the hard part was picking the papers! :)  Here are the rest of what I made...



I have lot's of ideas for more fun themed box card kits and hopefully I will get time to work on them and share them soon!  How about you?  Are you digging the box card excitement?

Teacher Appreciation Week

Around these parts this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and about a bazillion other things going on too!  I know all of you with school aged kids can relate, it's just a busy time of year...  I wanted to make a card for my son's teacher and I knew I wanted it clean and simple.  I feel like that suits his teacher the best.  I love the chevron background in the Vintage Nation kit, and new it would give some texture to the card without being too busy or frilly.  Best of all?  I was able to whip this up quickly!  Sometimes that alone is just as important as being able to craft something for someone special.


Don't forget about the Anything Goes Challenge!  You should join us, who couldn't use to won some more SVGAttic files!? :)

Happy Crafting!
