Snapdragon Snippets and SVG Attic September Challenge

Our challenge this month is FALL (can include Back to School and Halloween). This is a month long challenge and you can make anything that strikes your fancy with a FALL or Back to School or Halloween theme as long as you use files from Snapdragon Snippets and/or SVG Attic.

I have some inspiration for you today using the gift tote for pint jar with tag” Design ID #65667 


I didn’t use a jar for this because there is so many possibilities.  I was really stuck on getting a stuffed vampire for it but that didn’t happen!  It’s a very cute tote and you could make for any occasion!   I did forget to cut out the tag cause I was going to use one of my own, but that will be next so here we are for now.. this is my inspiration for the contest!

Are you ready for some baseball?

 Hi this is Lissa here to give you some Snapdragon Snippet Creative Team Inspiration!  You can find their files in the Silhouette Store for even more inspiration! I have made something simple and cheap!  A dollar store cup, with the wrapped favorite sport around it.  Now this cut is bowed out so you will have to have an arch. I googled it and it said that Make the Cut has this wonderful feature to do just that!  This awesome feature is called Conical Warp in your shape magic.IMG_9217[1]

Here is the link to TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME if you want to try!  I love my cup.  My boy has been in school baseball and just joined the junior league so I am excited to take it everywhere with me!
I hope this post has inspired you!  Make a fun cup for any occasion!


DT Tuesday – Need inspiration for some mesh ribbon?

Well if you do, I have something for you!  My daughter’s teacher is moving away and I wanted to make her something.  So I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of tags that her students can either sign, draw on like color code pink for bedroom yellow for kitchen, or whatever she like and use them for moving tags.  Sounds a bit silly to be to put a tag on a box but I couldn’t resist since I know that the memorabilia will be there in the end for her students here at this school.


Once I made the tags I had to have something to put them in right?  I saw this valentine tool box in the sillouttee store, I just took off the hearts and made it a tool box.  Using a thick card stock from DCWV Type Art, I cut it out and put this beautiful mesh ribbon around it.  Then when I started to put the handle on it wouldn’t stay so I put some jute wine ribbon on the ends


then a little twine put on her labeled tag from Abigail.


She loved her teacher alot and has been a very good influence on her this past year.  I was happy to make her something besides another thank you card.  I thought the mesh ribbon really topped off this project.  It really perked up my spirits to show off this new project!  If you would like to see what Jessi  has for a selection you can visit her open facebook group at  “My life in Arts n Crafts” , go ahead and browse through the fun stuff she has to offer.  If you like something you see,  just comment on that photos and she will send you an invoice!

If you love my project and would like see some more let me come right to your inbox by putting our email address in the box on the top right or scroll all the way down on mobile, I do a few blog hops a month and I love doing tutorials if you look around the site you will see many in the pages section!

Next hop coming up is for Father’s day, so be sure to sign up!
