Getting ready for Valentines Day 2020

My disclaimer...This is from 1-7-2019.  I haven't seen my mojo in a couple of weeks but didn't want to let the team down!

Whew!  The holidays are over.  Epiphany was yesterday.  My decorations need to be put away and decorate for Valentines Day.  This month I picked the Garden Shed to create.  With Valentines Day just around the corner,  I wanted to make the shed a Love Shack.  Remember the b-52's song Love Shack?  It was the inspiration.

Simply Crafts SVG's are wonderful to work with.  Sandy Stark (owner and creator) does incredible videos and and also provides a step by step PDF you can print out and follow.  So gang go check the website out!

Here is what I created.

Here is the Garden Shed as the Love Shack.  The two cute kids
are from Melonheadz.  

The Front.

Lookie, the door actually opens.

Side photo.

The box portion is rather large.  I imagine
it will hold a bag of Hershey Kisses.

The other side on inside the box. 

This is the roof.  I just love the paper.

Another presentation shot.

I had a lot of fun making this.  So happy that Sandy is agreeable to my wacky sense of humor.  Next months project hasn't been decided on yet.  So your guess is as good as mine!  So take care for now.

Bright blessings,

Merry Christmas for our Doggies and Kitties!

I try to come up with new treats for my kitty Emmie and my grand kitties and grand doggies.  My DIL is a Veterinarian.  They have 3 kitties and 4 doggies.  So I have a bunch of Christmas presents to make and give.  Thank goodness for Simply Crafty SVGs.  Sandy has the purrrfect stocking box just for the animals in our life.  Here is some pics of the finished boxes.  4 Cat and 4 Dog stockings.

Here is a pic of all the stocking boxes I made.  The boxes are made out of
NeeNah solid color cardstock and the sides are Co'Ordinations.

These two have paper from the Jolly Stack by American Crafts, bones are
made from scraps.  Next I cut some tinsel and used curling ribbon to make
each box unique.

I think you can see the names on the small bones at the top of each stocking box.
The paper used here is from Graphic 45 '12 days of Christmas'.  The paper
name is Joyeux Noel.  

Now on to the cats.  The girls have picked names from the greek gods for their
fur babies.  Paper for these two are, on the left Sweater Weather 'snow friends'
by American Crafts.  The right is another G45.

I named our fur baby to match the Wizard of Oz.  We have had Munchkin
Forrest, Spooky Forrest and currently Emerald Forrest (Emmie for short).
These two stocking boxes are the same as the ones above.

This project went together very quickly once I got started.  Christmas/Yule season is always a race
to get everything done and ready.  I don't take down decorations until Twelfth Night.  I do love all my lights and shinys.  

I wish each of you a bright and glorious Christmas (however you celebrate).  I will see you the 1st Monday of January 2020.

Happy Gnome-giving!

Hello everyone and welcome to my November post for Simply Crafty SVG's.  This post I am using the amazing gnome that Sandy designed last Christmas.  I have made him a Gnome Pilgrim.  Come with me and let's take a look.

Here I am.  Dressed up for Thanksgiving.  

The hat to the gnome comes off and you can put something inside.

Now for the papers.  These are from DCWV 2013 Halloween/Autumn big book.
The solid cardstock is American Crafts.  I made the sign out of a pop cycle Stick
and some craft card.  Printed the sign with Make The Cut, using the settings for
Print and Cut.  The gold buckles are mirror paper from a dollar store.  Dotted
paper is some I bought from Joanns probably at least 5 years ago.

Here is the hat buckle.

Here are the buckles on the shoes.  I wanted to edge the beard with ink but,
well the time got away from me.  Next one I will.

So again here is the finished gnome.
Thank you so much for visiting today.  I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.  See you the first Monday in December.  

Bright Blessings,
