Boredom strikes again!

And instead of washing dishes or doing the two loads of laundry waiting for me, I find something to craft instead! Don’t judge me.. you know you all do the same thing! For what it’s worth, I did try to do something with the kiddos, but they were watching a movie on TV and wanted nothing to do with me… *sniffle*.

HA! Sniffle nothin’… I was like, “Whoa, kiddos are entertained and DON’T want me within 2 feet of them for once?.. You bet your glue sticks I ran to my craft area and got busy!

I wasn’t in the mood for all sorts of paper piecing.. I’m saving my crafty juices for the new Echo Park kits that are on their way to my house! I have to whip up 3 projects by the 19th, which won’t be a problem.. I might even do more! But one of them is pretty detailed, so I don’t want to exhaust my poor fingers…. I know, dramatic, right?… LOL. Really, I was just too lazy…

So, my poor lil’ Silly-butt (Silhouette) has been sitting there sulking on my table wondering why she’s being ignored lately. I decided to show the Silly-butt some love and do some print and cut stuff. And my most favoritest (Yes, that’s a word, because I said so.. And so does the ‘urban dictionary’.. LOL) place to go for graphic cuteness is Lettering Delights. *swoon*

I picked up the Pucker Up Birthday graphic set and the Pucker Up Paper Pack! You HAVE to browse their pretties! SO many cute cut files, graphics and fonts!

Anyhow, I decide to make a party giftbag and hat! Yes, random party stuff.. fun! I was going to make a little giftbox and a couple cupcake toppers, but my printer is pretty much out of ink and of course I don’t have any on hand, egh. Story of my life, always out of something! I really need a huge craft space with lots of storage so I can buy loads of things and stock up! Hmm.. I wonder if hubby really needs that silly ol’ garage?.. GAH! Could you imagine a crafty space as large as a two car garage? I’m smiling like a total goober right now thinking about it.. And while we’re on this subject, I don’t think we really use our master bedroom much so, hmmm.. LOL! I can have the first craft room with a huge bed in it, I mean, crafting can be exhausting, right?

Doh! Rambling, sorry.. lol. If you come to my blog often, you’re probably use to it.

So, yeah.. I made a party bag and hat!

TA-DA!

Photobucket

I noticed the shirt my son was wearing kinda matched the bag/hat, so I got him in for a few pictures. I was surprised how excited he was. Like.. hand clapping and a big “YAY!” and all.. Hmmm.. SOMETHING was up…

Photobucket

I got a few good pictures of him wearing the hat and holding the bag… then I realized why he was so excited to take pictures for me… bless his little heart, he thought he was getting a real present from me.. yeah, I know.. jerk mom alert! He said, “Can I open it now, pleeease?!”.. I said, ” Baby, it’s just a bag.. nothing inside” Ooooooh…. The look on his face, “Nothing?” looks inside… “Oh..”

Photobucket

*hand to forehead*.. sorry little dude, mommy owes you a Hot Wheels next trip to the store!.. Maybe a 5 pack. In the meantime, to make up for it, I am making him a big Buzz Lightyear diecut from my Cricut Cartridge to plaster on his wall! And yes, he totally needs a date with some hair clippers!

Here’s some more pictures and details!

  • Party hat is a FREE SVG file from SVG CUTS BLOG!
  • Bag is also from SVG Cuts – The Vintage Halloween bags! It’s a great size for a few little gifts.
  • As mentioned above, my graphics and digital paper are from Lettering Delights!
  • I used the Silhouette print and cut feature with my graphics. So fun! I just wish my printer would have printed that pretty teal color better. Maybe I can adjust it?..
  • Other ideas include: birthday banner, cupcake toppers/wrappers, invitations, cards, giftbox, treat bag toppers and more.. You can make a whole party! Maybe after I get more ink I will make a whole matching party set to share! That would be fun!

I hope you all like it!

And on a side note.. my new blog design should be up soon at happylifecraftywife.com! YAY! I am going to have a modern and clean looking blog and I can not wait! The template gets installed tomorrow and then gets tweaked and customized from there!

See ya!

Cute Wall Decoration – Right at Home Scrapbooking project!

It’s me again!!

Here is a project created for Right at Home Scrapbooking! I worked with some paper from Echo Park’s Playground collection. I love these papers.. I will do another project using them soon, as I have plenty left!

I rarely ever make anything boyish, so I decided to make my son this cute wall/door hanging decoration for his room! If you want all the details you can get them HERE. You will need SCAL or MTC and the SVG Cuts Jonathan’s Bears Collection

Anyhow, I have been so busy lately! (crafting, of course) and this is what happens with 4 days straight of paper crafting and me just tossing things to the side to pick up later (ahem.. more like try and ignore it all ’til it get’s outta control! LOL!)

Photobucket

It will have to wait another day.. No time today to clean it. My ‘baby’ is 8.. ack, 8.. EIGHT!!!! Lordy, she is growing so fast! I swear it was JUST her 7th birthday, like.. last month? lol. We’re having a small celebration at home with cake and some presents (I have GOT to share with you this amazing deal I got on her gifts!) then, in May we’re heading to Disneyland for a few days! Whoo-hoo! It will be my sons first time going!

OK, my crafty peeps.. I will talk to you all later! I’ve got a project to work on tomorrow for Fantabulous Cricut! Not quite sure what I am doing yet, but I am really hoping to start on it tonight.

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!

Cup o’ Tea.

I have been itching to so SOMETHING with this gorgeous paper from My Mind’s Eye! I decided to sit down and make some cards. I always tell everyone, “I don’t ‘do’ cards” and have made a handful in my time as a paper crafter. But, I really had fun with these and I see more cards in my future! (I think I have said that before.. oh, well!) I bought a small 6×6″ pad and love the smaller prints for cardmaking. I never understood the small stacks of paper, now I get it, lol!

All files are from SVG Cuts! Love ‘em! They have fabulous cards and card bases to choose from, SEE? I used the Chamomile Friendship collection and Edisto Isalnd collection!

Dontcha’ love the little spoon added to the teacup? I got the idea from my friend, Thienly! So, cute.. right?

The flower on the teapot is my ‘go to’ flower, I love it! I use it on a lot of my projects! I saw someone add a flower to their teapot card on the SVG Cuts Facebook page, and I loved the way it looked! Of course I had to try it too, lol!

No ‘recipe’ I just wanted to share.. Sometimes I just gotta create and not take notes all the way through, lol. But, if you have a question, reply here and I will help you out!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Alrighty crafty friends! Talk to you soon! I would love it you would ‘like’ this post to share it on Facebook!

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 –

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!

My True Love – Valentine Heart Candy Box

Valentine’s day is coming soon and I have been trying to get all my little goodies done! I always give the kiddos a little box of chocolate on Valentine’s day.. Well, this is my first Valentine’s with a Cricut so I wanted to step it up a bit and make my own. I had these awesome Conversation Heart Box files from Svg Cuts and was trying to think of some way to make it an actual top and bottom for that traditional candy heart box look.

After some thinking it came to me! And I LOVE it! I honestly think it looks better in person for some reason.. So pretty! ignore the wrinkled paper… I am using  a spare glue and it’s mean and wrinkles my pretty paper.

Photobucket

I love the stickers in this paper collection! I used a few of them on my project.

And.. because I know you are dying to make one..

 

SVG files – Candy Heart Boxes : Breezy Butterflies : Crush On You Boxes (rose)

Cartridges needed – Sentimentals (I only used a tag from here. You can use your own tags or snag one from this SVG Collection Tags Galore)

Cut your hearts and tab strip in SCAL or MTC at 11″ Cut an additional tab strip at 11″ (Go to OBJECT> BREAK APART and delete your two hearts *this is in SCAL*)

Take your tab strips and trim them at 2″. SO you will have a 2″ strip and a smaller strip. Do this for both.

Cut your tabs so they are pretty small. This helps form a smoother shape to the box.

Photobucket

Score your tabs (or just fold them over) and attach like so:

 

Photobucket

Photobucket

You will want a fast drying glue to work quickly. Also.. to have a ‘lip’ I went around the edges of the heart and marked off at 1/2″. This will help form the box better and make sure you lid fits nicely.

Now, because I wanted a larger box I had to glue together two tab strips… just make sure you do not cut one upside down like I did, LOL! You can hide this line later with an embellishment or sticker. if you make your box smaller then it would be best to weld the two in SCAL.

 

Photobucket

Once you get back to your starting point then connect it with your loose tab strip. (You will need to trim the loose strip down about 5″ or so)

Yes… I use hair clips to hold things in place to dry..

Photobucket

Do the same for the lid. IMPORTANT — Your box will not close nicely if you do not match up the ‘V’ in the heart.. make sure you glue them in the same spots!

Photobucket

Voila’!

Photobucket

Time to decorate it!

Before I even made this I knew I had to have a 3d rose on it! The SVG Cuts roses are easier to put together than I thought they would be, especially with a hot glue gun!

Photobucket

I inked my edges… I left some white area to show through the paper core because I like the way it looks in this project! If you need some help with the roses check out the SVG Cuts video

To create the fanned circles you just cut a strips at 1 1/4′ x 11″ (for the top one) and another at 1″ x 11″ for the side. Score/fold them at 1/2″. Glue the ends together for a circle and that’s it!

The paper collection is STUNNING! From the wonderful Echo Park line ‘Be Mine’.

I really hope you love this project and it inspires you! I had so much fun making it that I am working on a dinosaur box for my son! I will show you all in a few days!

Toodles!

SVG.. LMNOP.. What?

So.. I know of at least 3 people who have purchased a Cricut thanks to me (Muahaha!) and now I have some people wondering what an SVG is.. what Sure Cuts A Lot is, etc. Sooo.. I am going to keep this short and sweet and hopefully answer some questions.

First.. Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) is a program you can use for cutting SVG files with your Cricut. There is also another program called Make The Cut.

I obviously use SCAL. If you are looking to purchase this program (or get more information about the features) do so from HERE and use the code SCAL20 for $20.00 off! For less than the price of a full priced cartridge you can do SO much! Wow.. that was very ‘infomercial’ of me, LOL. “And when you buy one.. we will send you another one free along with this other piece of junk that will break in two days, valued at $1 million dollars!”. Hmmm. Yeah.

Anyhow… Now that you get an idea what SCAL is for.. You willneed SVG files.

An SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) is used with your cutting program to well, cut files! We all know I adore SVG Cuts but there are many other places to find SVG files. You can find a lot of what you’re looking for for FREE. Most ‘kits’ and really good detailed SVG’s (like svgcuts.com) can be purchased for resonable prices! It becomes an addiction hunting down files and growing your library (or mess on a desktop like I have!) I honestly rarely use my cartridges now. It’s sad because I don’t stop buying them, lol. Just today I told myself I was going to make something 100% with cartridges. (I will post those soon!). I reaized what a pain it was to keep switching cartridges for one or two cuts. When in SCAL I just click, click, click.. done.

I also want to add that with SCAL you can ‘trace’ images to make your own SVG’s. You can also use fonts and dingbats! Very fun (and Cricut doesn’t really have exciting font cartridges).

So yeah.. If you have a Cricut SCAL is pretty much a must have! It’s a great price too!

Hopefully that helped a little bit! Before I go you can check out the SVG Cuts videos for SVG/SCAL help/tutorials.

Happy crafting, friends!
