This and That board

I created this super cute message board using a 6x18 inch board that my Fabulous Husband painted white, some fabulous patterned vinyl, solid vinyl and the font is my absolute favorite, Kon tiki Enchanted. The clips I bought at Staples Office Supply and I glued them on with E6000 glue. This is so cute and makes a great gift. We added (meaning my Husband did) two picture hangers on the back, one on either side so that it will hang straight even if only one hook on one side has something clipped on. This is a fun project to make and so useful! happy Crafting!!

St. Patties Day Pot O Gold

I used three different SVGcuts.com files to create this super cute Pot O Gold with Leprechaun and rainbow! I used the Party on Elm Street SVGcuts.com set for the pot o gold and I embossed the pot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
  The Leprechaun is actually the Pilgrim man from the Autumn Cuddly Friends svg set.
  The rainbow is from the Charm and Chance svg set. I used a piece of wire to attach the rainbow to the pot (I also hacked off the pot of gold that was part of the rainbow)
 I filled my pot o Gold with Leprechaun gold (the kind that disappears after a while! LOL) This was a fun project and it looks great as a super cute St Patties Day decoration, Jeremy is loving it, although I think that has more to do with the Leprechaun "gold" than anything else! LOL

Snail Mail Box (My Scrap Chick)

I used the mailbox file from My Scrap Chick to create this super cute Snail Mail box! The snail is from the My Scrap Chick Critter Books set and I used Make-the-Cut to create the "Mail" wordart. I inked the edges of the snail to add interest and dimension. I used a brad to attach the flag. This is a sturdy mailbox and so super cute!!!

**editing to add that the font I used to create the "mail" word-art was "Mail Ray Stuff" it is a free font and I included the link to it on Dafont.

Jukebox (svgcuts.com)

Welcome back everyone and I am glad to be back too!
Some of you know (My Facebook Friends) that I started a small vinyl craft business, in October I did my first craft show and I was so busy that I had no crafting time. After the holidays my creative mojo went of vacation! I finally made myself get back into the craft room and this is the first thing I made! This is the 3D Jukebox from the Brand NEW Rockin and Rollin kit from svgcuts.com. Mary has really out done herself and I am going to be making the record box too (I seriously LOVE the dice and glasses) I did the vellum version and I cut my vellum out of the white style vellum and used Alcohol ink in silver to color it, you can still see the battery operated tealight through the vellum. I used a gray paper for the body (to simulate chrome or aluminum) and then did a black and pink theme that is so typical 50's. I just loe the way it turned out and so does my almost three year old (His birthday is Friday 3 Feb.) He kept saying Wow, Wow LOL . Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!! I will leave you with a few more views from different angles!
