Christmas Dress Form ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am bringing you a project I made with files from SVG Attic.  I created this beautiful Christmas Dress Form using the dressmakers mannequin and mannequin skirt cage from the JGW Just Sew kit, the branches of the Noble Fir from the O Christmas Tree SVGA kit and the Poinsettias from JGW Poinsettia Passion.

The paper I used is DCWV Cranberry Christmas - it is just beautiful.  I got it at Michaels and it will be on sale next week for $5.  What a great deal!

Santa's List ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello crafty friends.  I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween.  I know my kids really enjoyed the night!

Today I am sharing a card from SVG Attic. I made using the CG Father Christmas kit.  The Santa's List Box Card.  This is one of my favorite cards.  I have to warn you that there is a lot of paper piecing to do with this card but I think it is worth the time!

I used Graphic 45 - Father Christmas paper.

I also inked a lot of the edges to add more depth to the card.

Sunflower Card ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing this beautiful card from My Scrap Chick.  It can be found in the Sunflowers and Bumble Bees Bundle.  This kit is awesome and has a wonderful Sunflower rosette!  I decided to make the Sunflower A2 Shape Card because I thought it would make a perfect "Get Well" card for a friend.


It is so sweet.  There are a lot of pieces but nothing difficult to put together.  I creased all my petals and inked the edges of all the pieces to give the flower more depth.  I like that it is an A2 so it won't cost a lot to mail.  I think I will be using this card often.  Thank you for stopping by.

Cup of Cocoa ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I want to share with you a cute card I made with files from SVG Attic.  I made the steaming cocoa mug box card from JGW Snowflake Stars.

I changed the file a little.  I added a "flap" to the front of the card.

I used the extra optional piece and welded it to the card base.  NOTE:  If you are using Silhouette you will weld the two pieces together.  If you use SCAL (like I do) you will have to break apart the base then select the two pieces and under path you will select "Union".  If you don't break the base apart you will lose the fold lines.

 I added some bling to the center of the snowflakes and used the cutout from the cup on my front flap.  I added a small piece of foam tape to pop it.  The paper is Doodlebug Sugarplums that I had left over from last year.

Haunted Treats ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing a project I made using files from My Scrap Chick.  I combined two different files to make this cute candy dish.  I used the Haunted House from Haunted House Easel Card and the Trick or Treat Snack Box.

I sized the Haunted House so that it was as wide as the snack box and then I welded the shapes together.  TIP:  To make sure all the pieces of the Haunted House are sized correctly put them all on the computer mat and group them before I re-sizing.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Pumpkins in the Pumpkin patch ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing with you some cute and super easy to assemble pumpkins from SVG Attic.  These are from the JGW Pumpkin Grin kit.  I just love how these came out.

These can be used for fall decor or you can fill them with treats and give them out.  They were so quick and easy to put together you could make several in no time at all.  My favorite kind of project.

I used several different patterned papers.  I think these would cute made with some kraft paper too.  The possibilities are limitless.

Snowman Box ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I wanted to share a project I made using SVG Cuts files.  It was designed by Kathy Helton - Frosty Flake Snowman.  I have wanted to make him for some time now and finally had a chance.  I love him.  He looks great in bright colors!

The paper I used was an old DCWV stack I've had for several years.
