SVG Cuts Game Day Marquee Signs bundle

My husband is a sports nut. When we were dating he told me he only liked BYU football. NOT true. He loves all sports, yes mostly BYU, but other teams as well.
I decided to make this collection for him from SVG Cuts. 
The paper plain card stock is from Recollections. Watch the sales at Joann's and Michaels where you can buy it at a good price. The patterned papers are from my stash and Sports Connection.
I inked a few of the edges with ink to give it dimension. 
The real string on the baseball is Memory Red String from DMC.
The Marquee lights are from Heidi Swapp. So far I have found them on Amazon and at Michaels. This is a link to the Amazon ones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00USNO60O/ref=pd_sim_201_1?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00USNO60O&pd_rd_r=1KJCGT70HT39Y1N7811E&pd_rd_w=iBXx2&pd_rd_wg=dzWyI&psc=1&refRID=1KJCGT70HT39Y1N7811E. This is not an affiliate link. I included it only so you could see what lights were used.
I embossed the Football and Basketball with the Cuttlebug Bubbles embossing folder.

Give Thanks bundle from Dreaming Tree Hoot Owl Lantern

The minute I saw Leo's preview for this owl, I knew I had to make it. The paper I used was from DCWV called the Midnight Berry. I also used a Purple Glimmer paper from DCWV although you can't see it because it is under the panels.
I added purple, orange and gold sequins to the feathers and front of the owl.
I used gold Liquid Pearls around the eyes, on the top handle and on the gold trim near the bottom of the owl.
I added Diamond Stickles around its eyes and a few feathers and on the sides
I also inked the feathers that were not metallic.
The candle is one from dollar tree.
I embossed the feathers that were not metallic with embossing folders from Crafter's Companion called Basket Weave and Parquet. I also used one from Cuttlebug called Bubbles.
I raffled the bottoms of the feathers by wrapping them a tiny bit around a Chapstick container.

Watch the tutorial video on the product page that Leo made on how to put this together.

Harvest Sunset Bundle from SVG Cuts (part repost)

The Harvest Sunset bundle file from SVGs Cuts is an awesome file. It a has 6 different projects in its files. Pumpkin, single sunflowers, Sun Flower Wreath, Coffee Pod cart, Pumpkin diorama card and a bucket bag.

This pumpkin is 11.5" wide and 10" deep. It is hollow and the lid comes off so you can fill it with many things. I used glitter on the vines and leaves and inked the edges with the ebrush and markers.

Individual daisies, I inked the edges with my ebrush and a marker. 

Sun Flower wreath. I used a metal wreath frame from Dollar Tree. I wrapped it with some 2 - 3" ribbon from there also. I grabbed some raffia from there and wrapped it around the wreath. The lights are fairy lights from Amazon. I used a thick TomboMono aqua glue pen to cover the centers and sprinkled fine gold glitter that I got from Walmart on it. The possibilities are endless.



 This is a bucket bag. It's a poor picture. You choose your own picture. I printed a picture from Google but any picture would work. Its about 10" wide.

Coffee pod cart. I didn't get to detailed on this one. But you could. It's designed for the Coffee Pods. I was thinking it might could be used for Easter eggs at Easter. You could also just use an uncut paper and not have holes in the cart.



 I love love love this Pumpkin Diorama box card from SVG Cuts.
I used plain cardstock from Hobby Lobby when making this. The green center of the yellow flower is a large green brad I had in my stash.
I shaded all the edges with Pebble brand chalks.

Dreaming Tree's Frankie and Friends bundle Halloween Treat Box


Another cutie! 
This Halloween Treat box from Dreaming Tree is very easy to make. It is quite sturdy as well.
It's 3 to 4 inches deep.

The paper is from Hobby Lobby. The black Glitter paper is fro The Paper Studio. I used foam squares to the bats and ghosts to give them dimension. I added the cut-out bats from the front panel so I have 4 dimensional bats instead of 2 that was in the file.

There are more projects in the Frankie and Friends bundle that I hope to post here soon.

Dreaming Tree's Monster Bash Widow's Web

Have I ever said how much I love love love Dreaming Tree's files? 

Today I am sharing the Monster Bash Widow's Web cut file. There are 5 projects in the Monster Bash bundle. Ther others will be posted here soon.

This Widow's Web caught my eye the minute it went live on Dreaming Tree. I used paper from Hobby Lobby. I am not sure what brand it is but I am liking it. It's not flimsy. Some of their cardstock is textured and some of it is not depending on which you choose. The White and Purple glitter is from Paper Studio. The rosette behind the spider was made from Green with white polka dots from the Paper studio as well. I wanted black polka dots but they didn't have any so I dotted the white polka dots with a black marker. 

There are fairy lights wrapped amongst the paper. You can find them on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Fairy-Star-String-Lights-Included/dp/B00JT3DDJO They are not too expensive and many options available. Mine has 5 feet but could use some more. Mine are warm white lights but any color would be great.
