The 19th is here.. You know what that means! CHA REVEALS!!!!!

Today is the day I get to share my CHA Echo Park booth projects with you all! Yes, I have been talking about it a lot on my FACEBOOK PAGE and now I can stop yappin’ about it and actually show you all! After I tell you all a little story..

I was contacted on July 6th asking if I would be able to design some projects for Echo Park Paper to show at CHA… I wish you all could have seen my face when I read that email! I was SO stinkin’ excited and could not believe they would contact ME, let alone read my blog.. I mean, who am I?…

I replied back saying I would.. I mean, WHO would turn that down? A crazy person, that’s who! Then, before I heard back about my deadline, I thought to myself, “Gee, isn’t CHA THIS month?”.. Ummm, yeah. *panic begins to set in*…. I was told that they needed my projects by the 14th.. *gulp*… AND they still needed to ship me the paper! *double gulp*…. I told myself, “You’ve got this, Tamara!”… (I really did say that…. Psssh! Don’t try to pretend you don’t talk to yourself!) So, I got a big box of awesomeness on July 8th in the evening and immediately got busy! As soon as I saw the GORGEOUS paper I was inspired to create! In TWO FULL DAYS I got done.. I was pretty amazed! I shipped them all out on July 11th.. which is an AMAZING day for me.. Not only did I get done super fast and knew my projects would arrive in time, but that evening I was asked to be on their in house design team!

Just imagine, if you will, a crazy woman running through the house screaming like a half pig, half duck.. being strangled. Kinda like, “Quuuuuack.. ah-ah-ah-ah *gasp*..snort, ah- *gasp* ah-ahhhh-.. Quuuuack”.. “Snort”…

My husband asked what my problem was.. and you know what?.. If HE thinks I’m having an ‘issue’ then it’s seriously disturbing!

So yeah, I am excited to say the least! It’s a lot different than any other DT I’ve ever been on and I don’t want to get into too many details, but it’s super-doooper! If you want to meet the other SUPER talented design team members, head on over to the BLOG!

And you get something out of it too.. what?.. PAPER KIT GIVEAWAY’S! Yes, I will be giving away some of the newest kits here on my good ol’ blogity-blog here and there! Yeah, buddy! And I get to give one away NOW!! (See below my projects for details!)

 

OK.. now that I got that outta my system, time for CHA projects and to get down to business!

*breathe in.. breathe out*…. (Seriously, I’m such a child! I feel like such a celebrity right now… LOL! )

So, first off, if you’re not already following Echo Park’s BLOG or ‘like’ their Facebook Page, then you might have missed out on peeks of some bea-U-tiful new lines! I’m talking about Victoria Gardens and Apothecary Emporium! “Hellooo000oo, GORGEOUS!”

Photobucket  Photobucket <~~~~~~ LOVE!

 

These were two of the three lines I got to work with! I knew right when I saw Apothecary Emporium on Facebook that I wanted to make some test tube type of project with them. I had two tubes laying around and decided to make my own SVG file to hold them (which will be a free download during my Blogiversary Bash) and decorate it with the cool stickers that come in the kit! I will admit, I don’t usually use stickers, just never really thought to. But these were SO fun!

Photobucket

Photobucket

I used a lot of pewter ink from Color Box! A great color for Halloween stuff (So is black, white and silver!)

Photobucket

Those little stickers fit just right on top of the test tubes!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

I stuck some of the stickers on cardstock and cut them out. I then distressed and inked the edges. You can do so much with these stickers alone! These would be great with some Reese’s Pieces or black and orange jelly beans in them! The twine shown is from the awesome Trendy Twine! How awesome is that black and orange?! I think it’s a limited edition, so you might want to go snag some while you can! Go like her Facebook page and let her know I sent ya!

Think that’s neat? Well, this is my FAVORITE! I had visions of doing something like this since LAST Halloween when I first started crafting, I just had no idea where to start! I tackled this and LOVE how it came out. I was sad to ship this one off, for sure! I will have to make another one!.. or at least the hat! The hat is a paper mache cone that I got wet and shaped at the top. I dried it and Mod Podged the paper to it!

Photobucket

 

Photobucket

I hope you like that vintage crinkle ribbon! I will be giving some away for my Blogiversary!

Photobucket

I used Recollections brand glitter and it works just as nicely as the Martha Stewart stuff…

Photobucket

Photobucket

The photo above shows how I added glitter to the wire holding the bats. It looks awesome in person with black and silver glitter on various elements!

Photobucket

Photobucket

I will share tips on how I made this in the next few days! :) It’s a lot of fun!

 

Next up, is the Victoria Gardens collection. When I first saw this I had so many ideas coming to me and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. Then, I remembered a PDF file I saw awhile back to make a very small carousel.. that was it! I HAD to make a vintage looking paper carousel! The PDF was way too small to make any sort of template from so I created my own files in Sure Cuts a Lot from the basic shapes library and a mix of SVG files and created this…

Photobucket

Can I just say I am dang proud of this beauty!? It’s a GIFT BOX! The top section and bottom section are both boxes. I built this thing as if I was building myself a house! lol.. I was very careful with placement and measurements. The center column is stuffed with packing paper and dowel rods for support. I actually had a lot more flowers and things cut out and realized if I went ‘overboard’ it would have been too much since it was such a large piece as is. Again…. 98% of this was made with the SCAL basic shapes library! I will share more about how I made this in a few days.

Don’t those papers totally MAKE the project?.. That roof was a total pain to make! I had to use some rusty math skills to create it!

 

And, last but not least! The ‘secret’ paper I got to work with! Happy Days… how fun and cute are these papers?

Photobucket

I decided to go fairly simple with a neat 3D project. Sadly, I didn’t get very many photos of this since I got sidetracked and then ran out of time. When I saw these papers I immediately thought ‘diner’.. So, I made an ‘EAT’ sign with 3D letters!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

The dice were a last minute add for that extra something special. You can make a menu and use this to hold it, cool, huh?! Most of this project is made from files at SVG Cuts!

Photobucket

And there you have it! Again, I worked so hard on these! Most of you who read my blog know I love to make 3D projects… and that hat box and carousel really show ‘me’. I don’t usually have time to go all out like I like to.. I hope I got a few of you to say, “WOW!”.. :) I had so much fun working on these! I love starting a project and just going for it! And then to be picked up for Echo Park’s design team after all this! I am truly blessed! This past *almost* first year of paper crafting has been AMAZING for me!

Now, for my giveaway…

Wait, did I mention I am now on ECHO PARK PAPER’S DESIGN TEAM??!!… I did? Oh, well.. in case you forgot or something.. *wink*

I’ve got mah’ flippy floppy’s!

Well.. I’ve got ONE of ‘em! lol..

This week at Paper Dolls we are making FLIP FLOP BOXES! How fun! When I saw this file from Eleanor of SVG Shop I was so excited! I LIVE in flip flops in the summer! I’m picky though! They either have to be bright colored with big ol’ flowers on the top.. or my Reef Fannings! <~~~~ Those are what I have for this summer. I get a new pair every year! The most COMFORTABLE flip flops, ever! They hug your feet nicely and don’t really ‘flop’…. or ‘flip’.. so.. are they still ‘flip flops?… Or, are they.. SANDALS?.. lol.

*blink – blink*

Wait.. am I selling flip flops here.. or am I trying to show you my project for Paper Dolls?

(really though, check those sandals out!)

Anyhow..

Here is my take on the flip flop box! I went for a luau theme that would be GREAT for party favors! This was easy to make (for a 3D project), even better!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And not only is the Crop-a-Dile fun to say.. it’s pretty awesome, too! Like my eyeltets?

Photobucket

Wanna make one like mine?… Head on over to Tamara’s shoe factory with your best glue.. and let’s get busy!

You can download the box from the Paper Dolls Blog.. so scootch on over there and get it!

I kept my boxed as pre-sized.

To decorate my flippy floppy, I used SVG Attic’s Luau collection!

So pretty! You gotta check out her work! (Jessica of SVG Attic). She’s just getting started, but from what I have seen from her, she’s got great stuff! Her files are easy to use, too! Also, be sure to ‘like’ her Facebook, and let her know I sent ya!

Here are the sizes I used from the Luau collection:

  • Hibiscus – 1.40w
  • Lanterns – ’round:1.063w  ‘lantern: .904w   ’tall: 1.151w
  • Luau Caption – 4.542w
  • Coconut drink – 2.396w

That’s it! I didn’t want to do too much to the flip flop because I didn’t want it to be overkill. I think the little touches I added were just right for this, though!

For the off white ‘inner’ part of the sandal, I just opened up another flop flop piece.. and unchecked ‘keep proportions’ and kinda smoohed it a bit to fit how I wanted.. I used an x-acto knife to cut the spaces for the straps. Then I inked and embossed it.. love the way it came out!

I strung the lanterns with some twine and tied little bows. You could do this with someone’s name for a gift!

The ‘grass’ trim is just two strips of paper cut to 1.25″ and frayed by hand with scissors. Super easy to do!

Welp, I hope you have enjoyed this one! I will be pretty quiet this week as I finish up the stuff for the SVG Summer Shindig Blop Hop! I can’t wait!

Head on over to Paper Dolls to see our guest designers projects.. and hopefully create something to enter in our challenge!

Have a great week!

Teacher Book Cabinet – An SVG Cuts project!

Hey all! I wanted to share this cute little book cabinet I made! Did you know teacher appreciation week is NEXT week? All of us SVG Cuts designers made some great projects to inspire you! Now you can get busy crafting this weekend! Whoo-hoo!

I was going to keep this simple and just do books.. then, I thought a cabinet would be cute. After having it all complete (so I thought), I felt it was missing something.. so, I added a pencil holder to the side. Then… I felt the top needed something, so I threw on a lunch bag! Ta-da! I really, really loved making this and had a lot of fun with it!

OK.. now on to a pile of photos.. you know how I roll! LOL!

Toodles chicken noodles! (don’t ask..)

 

Berry Sweet

I came across this pattern today after I saw someone make these for the FCCB challenge this week. Download StrawberryBoxPatternwithpicture[1] .. and HAD to make them! I edited it in Photoshop and then created an SVG for it. It worked pretty good! Sooooo….. while slackin’ on cleaning I made this:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Isn’t it just soooo berry cute? I don’t have any candy here, but these would be great for jelly beans, Hershey Kisses, etc. A fun little gift for a friend! I had a lot of fun with these! They are really easy to put together.

You know you wanna make some too!

 

Print and cut out the template.. or, you can use this SVG file I made. It’s not perfect, the tab is a little off, but.. it still works! Download Berry1

Everything else you can get at SVG Cuts!

If you use my SVG file provided. Cut it at 5.844w. I used my swiss dot folder to emboss the berries.  You will need to poke holes or add them in SCAL. Glue your tab to form a cone.. Or.. make yourself a Madonna cone bra, whatever floats your boat! :)

Photobucket

The ‘leaves’ are file 6 in the ‘extras’ folder from the 3D Flower Collection sized at 3.50w. Curl them a little bit.

Photobucket

The box is from the Big Boutique Boxes Collection I used the square flat trio, small.. sized as is in SCAL. I put the sides through my Cuttlebug to emboss. They don’t fit right so I had to do them each twice and turn it around the second time.

Photobucket

Assemble your box as shown in SVG Cuts.

When the berry tab is dry, you can weave your string/twine, etc. through the holes. Pull (not too tight!) and tie closed.

Photobucket

Pull the leaves through. Again, add a hole in SCAL or poke your own.

 

Photobucket

Add the button and the tie a bow! Ta-Da!

Photobucket

Then have fun decorating your box! Add a handle, fence, some little critters… I wanted to add more to mine, but.. I already wasted enough time and my laundry was calling!

I hope you enjoyed! If you want more 3D fruit.. go bug Mary at SVG Cuts Facebook page! LOL! I ran the idea of a 3D fruit with a picnic basket to her, I am sooo hoping she makes some! *fingers crossed*

See you tomorrow for the FCCB Cricut Crawl (Blog Hop!) I created something cute and SUPER easy!

Springtime buddies.

Yes, I know I literally posted a few hours ago saying how busy I was.. but, when I get an idea in my head I have to try it right away! So.. lucky you, here is another tutorial.

I got my inspiration for these from some SVG files I saw. I decided to whip up my own little bag and use my cute critters from the always awesome Create A Critter cartridge and this was the result –

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Don’t they make you smile? I mean.. who doesn’t love decapitated critters? Ha!

Wanna make some? Do you have it in you to chop these poor critters heads off all just to make a cute bag?..

Well, if ya do.. then let’s cook up some springtime buddies!

 

Here’s whatcha need:

Create a Critter cartridge and this file created by moi! Download 1springtime_buddies_bag_HappyLifeCraftyWife This is an SVG file. Open it and just cut away! to make this to my sizing set this to cut at 5.820 HIGH. Make sure ‘Keep Proportions’ is checked.

*** If you use my SCAL file and share anything you made with my file PLEASE link back to my blog. Do not post the file on your website/blog.. simply link back to this post. Thank ya! ***

You will need to score it as shown:

Photobucket

Photobucket

If you don’t have a paper scorer you can just fold it.. but, these are only like $8.00 – $10.00 and make life grand! No more uneven fold lines!

Glue it shut and set aside. Time to make some critters!

Make your frog 4″ high and your chick 4 1/2″ high. The grass is 2″ high. (There are several animals you can use for this!)

Glue ‘em all together and then cut their heads off!

Photobucket

The chicks eyes look weird because I added Glossy Accents and it wasn’t dry yet. Ah.. who am I kidding? The poor chick is crying! I mean, wouldn’t you if your head was just chopped off?

OK, enough talking about decapitated animals.. before you all think I have issues.

What? No I didn’t just twitch.. gah! *twitch*

OK.. moving on…

Glue the body on the bag like so:

Photobucket

Add a little sticky foam square to keep it shut. Glue the head onto the top flap.

Photobucket

That’s it, folks!

Have fun with it! Wouldn’t these be adorable for the kiddos on Easter?

Toodles!

Pretty Little Valentine

Sunday… bleh! Football… double ‘bleh!’

I made this little box about a week ago. It’s so simple and just purty! Yes, I meant to type ‘purty’. I used DCWV’s paper stack ‘Rustic’ it’s a great stack to have!

Photobucket

Photobucket

 

I didn’t keep track of my sizes but these are the SVG Collections I used to make this cute box!

Candy Hearts : Breezy Meadow Butterflies : Rosies Ribbons : 3D Flowers : The bow from Charlotte’s Favor Boxes : Text is cut in SCAL with one of my fonts.

I’ve been sitting here thinking of soooomething to make while I am dealing with football on in the background. I am not feeling very crafty at the moment.. so, I think I will go paint this cute little table we found at our community dump.. yes, I am serious. I wear many hats and you can just add a ‘trash digger’ hat to my head, LOL! I was going to keep it for my craft area but, I decided it would look great in my older daughter Autumn’s room (she has a vintage-ish looking room going on, if I can ever get it finished!) And speaking of her, I snapped a few quick pics of her this morning. *sigh* she is growing so fast! she will be 8 in April!

 

OK, crafty peeps.. toodles!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge – Green Circle

This weeks challenge is to create something cut with your Cricut that includes a GREEN CIRCLE. I had already planned on making this super cute doorknob gift box so I threw on a green circle to enter the challenge! I plan to make these for the kiddos and hang them on their doors on Christmas Eve morning…. I think they will be so excited to find these! I will make them all different. For Austin’s I will add some hot wheels and candy and for the girls maybe some silly bands, lipgloss and candy!

On to the cuteness! (no candy here.. so I used marshmallows, lol)

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

I tend to prefer more ‘simple’ looking things. I was going to add all sorts of stuff to this to really jazz it up.. but I realized, it was too much for my style. I think it’s perfect just like this!

Anyhow.. you want the details to make one of these yourself?

DETAILS

Paper/brads from My Mind’s Eye – I Believe

Cricut cartridge for penguin, tree, tag and snowflakes is Christmas Cheer.

The bag is an SVG from HERE (Super cute, but pricey for a file at $5.00!.. I looked for a freebie but couldn’t find anything and I REALLY wanted to make these for the kids)

Misc. Paper DCWV solids and glitter.

White ink from Color Box for detail (snow)

That’s it! I hope you like my little gift box! Come check out the challenge! Some great entries already!

Until next time!
