Silhouette Challenges #37~Something that pops

Silhouette Challenges #37

Welcome to May! Birds chirping, snow is gone (hopefully), sun shining, new homes being bought, and flowers popping through the soil! 

For this challenge, try to make something on your project POP. This box card lies down flat and when it is opened, it pops up to life. 


This is a Lori Whitlock file found in the Silhouette Design Store. 

Please visit http://www.silhouettechallenges.com/ to enter your challenge of using something that pops in your project!

Administrative Professionals Day

Today is Administrative Professionals Day. I decided, last minute yesterday, to make two shaker cards and candy wrappers to have my son give to his school secretaries today. 

I used DCWV's April challenge sketch for the card base.

Next I decided KaDoodle Bug Designs 'Candilicious Cuties' file was perfect for the chocolate bar I wanted to give with the cards! I added the face set to my chocolate bars from the 'Coffee Cup Cutie' file.

 The paper is from DCWV's confetti stack which was perfect for not only the shaker portion, but I needed gold paper to match the gold foil on the candy bar.
 The chocolate bar is one of the ones that looks like money. 



Materials Used:

Paper Stack: DCWV's Confetti

Monday Mojo #445 - A Whole Latte Love

Yesterday while making my project for this weeks Monday Mojo, I decided to do both inspirational sketches with tags. 
I almost made it too!

As I was just about to put the finishing touches on my project, I looked up at my coffee cup. Darn that coffee cup! Cause all of a sudden I decided this project needed to be red, black, white, gray, and Wake Up Call themed. 

For teacher appreciation week, for my own child, I am planning on doing simple gift cards to one of the best coffee places around here, Wake Up Call. 
 Instead of doing tags, I decided to do a bookmark. 



By the way, that red hydro flask is my most favorite coffee accessory!

Paper Play Sketches #6 - Pear-fect

I am really enjoying the challenges that I find online. This current challenge is for Paper Play Sketches.

Now when I first saw this sketch, I just knew that the bracket portion of the card would be perfect for a hidden pull out sentiment!

I started with picking my colors. Using DCWV's 11x17 double sided brights was a perfect fit. By using the double sided paper, I used three sheets and that is all! Usually with a card with such layers, I would use several more sheets.

 A perfect pear is usually the sentiment found for a pear card. But I wanted to use this card for a pick me up card for anyone who might be down. Hence 'You're PEAR-fect to me!'

Materials Used:
DCWV paper stack:
     ~11" x 17" Double Sided Brights Stack

Teacher's Bloom

Today I am on the SVG Attic blog (http://svgattic.blogspot.com/). With teacher appreciation and mother's day around the corner, I figured this project could go for either. I plan on using it for teacher appreciation week though!

 Next I took the flower pot from Gaby's Garden to create a garden of pencil flowers! I figure teachers can always use pencils!
I found this great flower pot easel card by Snap Dragon Snippets in the silhouette store.

Sunny Day Crafting Challenge #5

Hello Sugar Beans! Today, April 17, 2016, is a new challenge week for Sunny Day Crafting. You have two weeks to upload your entry to win a prize! 

Challenge #5 is a Travel/vacation Theme.


 I just couldn't make my mind up when it came to this challenge! I remade this project at least five different times! I ended up with two projects and couldn't decide on which one to use so I will use them both!

I first started with these cute Paris stamps I found in the Silhouette store. Because they were pink, black, gray, and white, that sort of set the color for my project.


 Next, I picked one of my travel case files from SVG Attic.

 This case with all the little details was actually my favorite to put together out of both of the projects I did.

The next project is a slider card (base of card is from SVG Attic).

 Slide the card up and the plane moves!

Thank you for looking and I cannot wait to see what you come up with!

You are out of this world!

This little pop up box card is for a little boy who had no one show up for his birthday party. The parents of the kids who were supposed to come were rather viscous with their words.

The grandmother of the birthday boy put out a request in one of my crafting groups for cards for her grandson.

Here's my contribution! I hope some handmade cards from crafting ladies will cheer him up!

Social Behavior...

Two more thank you cards requested for two Psychology professors. I think psychology courses would be beneficial to many people to understand why other think or do the things they do!




 I think this is my brain while crafting. The question is though, how many of those arrows actually make it to paper?!?!
