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 A SVG FILE CONTEST?

Welcome to a new contest!
This month it is a joint contest with SnapDragon Snippets and SVG Attic, so that means you have even more files svg/sillouette files to choose from and create with to enter! We hope you will join with us and participate in this month’s “Anything Goes” contest. Here is my project to inspire to create with these files. Please stop by SnapDragon Snippits and SVG Attic blogs to see the rest of the files made and let them know how much you love their projects!

At first I started out taking pics with little crayon box, thought it was cute, but it didn’t give the whole look I wanted ..

So then I used a pot

and added another pinwheel!

So there is my bit of inspiration for the contest.  This file is actually a patriotic pinwheel but I love summer colors and will keep them out for the entire summer so I didn’t go with the patriot theme.  You have GOT to see that file though!  It Rocks for a Pinwheel!

ALMOST TIME FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

Hi this is Lissa Marie here to give you some SnapDragonSnippits Design inspiration! You can find them in the Silhouette Store or also at SVG Attic! So my design here today is for my son. He has been working hard playing school ball and umpiring little league after the games he is 14 going into 9th grade. Then on June 2nd we had signed him up for Junior baseball, football, basketball and life was crazy! When I was in school 9th grade you were still a peon until the end of the year when you got your class trip. Nowadays if you are in sports and want to play football they have camp. So off to camp he went! The one our high school chose is about 7 hours away they are gone four days at a Boise State University. It was such excitement and so special. So when he got home I wanted him to feel special and that we missed him. (my daughter’s idea to make him the banner though) as usual I just took over! I used the football charms (Design ID #12453) in the Silhouette store and the Collegiate Letters (Design ID #13110) to make this. Cutting the collegiate letters in vinyl. Hanging it from a string. We actually had it in the living room when he got here but it went to his room today over our state’s team banner.WelcomeHome1

A little closer view, it was a cute little craft and he actually liked it! Now that is sayin’ alot coming from my boy who doesn’t like his mom to craft things to make him look different in front of friends! Now he is begging for flames on his baseball helmet!

WelcomeHome2

If I had more time I would have gotten much fancier but they were suppose to stop at the water park and come home around 10 that night but it rained and no water park, 5:00 pm he calls and said Mom I am almost home can you come get me? So this is what he got!

I am looking forward to the years of these college letters and numbers to use over and over again with both my kids. Just hope it encourages him to GO to college!

Do you have a way you could use these little sports charms or letters? If so I would love to hear about it!

Just another Bird House

Hi this is Lissa here ready to show you the final of the 3 houses.   I mentioned last time that the next time I post I will show it with a twist because the file from Snapdragon Snippets in the Silhouette store, now also available at SVG ATTIC has 3 houses but I didn’t use the 3 house in the file, I use a SVG Attic bird house for my 3rd house.
Here are the first two I have showed you from Snapdragon Snippets
So here is the 3rd house but this one came from SVG ATTIC Welcome Home Kit
  Now in the description, it does say it’s a gift box, I changed this one around a bit, and it is more for pretty than a gift box.
I hope you have enjoyed my series of birdhouse and it has inspired you to grab one of those files or both of them and start cutting away!  They sure are pretty and versatile!  Now it just needs a little stuffed bird!
Don’t forget we are having our MAY CONTEST going on, come and join us to win win win throughout the month!

READY FOR ANOTHER BIRD HOUSE?

 Hello all, how are you going to make it through iNSD weekend?  OMG, I surely don’t know if I am going to!  It’s so exciting for digital and paper!  Unfortunately I love it all!  I am here today to show you a little more inspiration on the birdhouses at the Silhouette store for Snap Dragon Snippets.  They have a set of 3 and I can’t wait to make my last one!  But the last one I want to make isn’t in the set, there will be a twist!

I posted the tall house a couple weeks ago, here is another to go with it.  The link that says FILE and it will take you to the Silhouette store for the tall house.

 Hi, it’s been awhile since I have posted some great 3D paper crafts!  I surely have missed it much!  Last week I introduced myself as a new designer at www.3under3andmore.blogspot.com whom is merging with SVGAttic.com.  I would like to show you my first project.
I fell in love with these bird houses as soon as I saw them, they were so tweet!  I really enjoyed putting them together.  Knowing I had to use some old stash, I used DCWV Garden Party stack and it turned out very nice, new or old it sure worked here!  There are 3 houses in a set so keep your eye out for some more!

You can find this file at the SVG Attic, and see all 3 now!
Thanks for taking a peek!
