My Craft Spot Challenge Monday!

The My Craft Spot Challenge this week is a sketch challenge, see photo at the end of this post.
This week's challenge was much easier for me to do!  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew what I wanted to do.  

I designed this in my Silhouette DE and that made it go so fast.  The little banner was made with the Tiny Banners & Toppers Metal Dies from My Craft Spot.  The sentiments are from the Birthday Wishes stamp set and the twine is Maraschino both from My Craft Spot.

Witches Hat Treat Box

I actually made this last year and never posted it, so I am doing it now.  This is a file from SVG Cuts.  The cute sentiment is from Best Witches to You stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I can't remember where I got the cut for the banner.

Mini cards and Bag

 I just love mini things, they are just so cute!  So 3x3 mini cards are no exception...LOVE THEM!!!  I made this set of mini cards from some I saw at Archivers.  Then I made the Fish Handled Bag from SVG Cutting Files to hold the cards, it's a perfect fit.  I sized the bag at 6" tall so there is room for the cards and mini envies.  You can get the bag here.

trick or treat card

Why is things just seem so much cuter when they are tiny?  Everyone I know just loves things that are tiny and sometimes it's something that you normally wouldn't even look at twice, but it's so tiny and cute, I have to have it!  Isn't that true?
Well this is a 3x3 card that was a make and take at my Archivers.

Best Witches to you treat Bag!

Isn't this the cutest little witch ever!!?  I just love her, she is a new file that will be released this friday at SVG Cutting Files, you can get her here.  As you can see I did a lot of inking and stamped her face with a PK face stamp.  The box is also from SVG Cutting Files, it is the Fish Handled Bag, you can get it here.  This is such a versatile little bag, you can do anything with it.  The tag was made with SU punches and stamped with a stamp from Best Witches to You stamp set from My Craft Spot.


It's time for a little brewhaha...

This is a card I made awhile ago and never posted.  It is all Stampin Up products.  The image was stamped on glossy paper and water colored with my ink refills.  The tree I hand drew on the inside, so don't look to close at it!   Hard to believe no die cuts on this, shocking!

My Craft Spot Challenge Monday!

It's time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot, and this week's challenge is a Pinterest photo challenge.  I have to admit, this was very hard for me!!  I threw away the first project and started over.  This is what I came up with, I hope you like it.  It is a cut file from SVG Cuts.  The cute tag was cut with the Jar Basics metal Dies and Stamped with the Jar full of Fall stamp set both from My Craft Spot. I tied it on with Brown Jute String also from My Craft Spot.  Scroll to the bottom to see the photo challenge and give it a try!

Rattle Dem Bones Card

Halloween is just around the corner, so I have busy making things for my friends and grandkids.  They love it when I send them little treat containers I've made.  My one little grandson is 8 and he saves them all.
For this card, I used the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  I made a 3.5 x 4.75 shape and welded the skeleton in the middle and cut it out.  The sentiment is from the Ghostly Greetings stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I embossed it in white embossing powder.   I put the black layer on foam tape.   I got the idea for this card from Melanie at Courtney Lane Designs.

The inside sentiment is also from the Ghostly Greetings stamp set from My Craft Spot.

Shaped Bat Card

This is another file from the Silhouette Store, so easy to make and quick!  It is also from last year.  The bottom photo is the same card, I just added green jewels for the eyes and glossy accents to the bats to make them stand out more.  Which one do you like better?

Rattle dem bones!

So this was made last year, I just ran out of time to post all my Halloween things, so I have a few to post this year from last year.  This is a file from the Silhouette store.  The sentiment is from the Ghostly Greetings stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I added some dark purple jewels to the corners, they just don't show up to much.

New Monthly Challenge at SVG Cutting Files!

It's that time again, time for a new monthly challenge at SVG Cutting Files.  This months theme is Boys and Their Toys!  So come join the fun! 

For my project I made the Convertible Race Car Box, you can get it here

The number one was stamped with the Chunky Alphabet stamp set from My Craft Spot.  The twine is Denim also from My Craft Spot.

I don't know if you can tell, but I cut a piece of plastic and glued it in for the windshield.  A little trick to putting this together, roll the hood and the trunk parts with your fingers just a bit to give it some bend and curve, it just helps it go together easier.

* Please note, if you plan to post your project via the blog, you MUST enter a URL  - if you do not have one, you MUST post your photo to our FB Galleria page...
You may also enter your project on our Facebook Galleria Group Page...(perfect for those that read blogs, but may not actually have one!)

Birthday Cards Box and Cards

It seems you never have enough birthday cards, it's like everyone you know is having a birthday!!  Well this is a fun way to have those birthday cards close at hand, or give this to someone as a gift.  It is a card hold box for birthday cards, you could do it for any type of cards, but birthday cards are the ones you seem to need the most.  I made this with my friend Sue, she is so amazingly talented!!

This will hold several cards and envelopes, I just haven't made more yet.

This was made with the Artiste and Sweet Treats  cartridge.  The sentiments are all computer generated.


The rocket ship card turns so the rocket moves around the circle.
