Easter is right around the corner and that makes me think about bunnies! This SVG file is from Bunny Hop from svgcus.com. His head comes off (!) and he can hold lots of treats! I add fishing line to make his whiskers. Hugs, Fran
Something different to show you today – a Fairy Cottage. The cutting file is from SVGCuts and is made using all kinds of patterned paper and lots of little succulents, toadstools and flower. I made this for my soon to be daughter in law for Valentines Day.
The back is open so you can insert lights and the top of the tree house comes off for more lights,
Isn’t it fun? So many little things to look at!
I had a great time putting it together! Hugs, Fran
Are you ready to decorate for Halloween? How about a haunted barn with decked out characters? This barn is from SVGCuts.com and is called – Haunted Barn! I used some retired Stampin Up Halloween Designer Series paper and LOTS of black card stock to create this cute 3-D.
There are some really cute details – the corn stalks, lanterns and bats, to name a few.
And a Haunted Barn needs haunted barnyard animals! I used Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups characters to create my scene. First is Cheepers the Chicken appearing as a zombie.
Brownie the cow is a vampire. His cape was hand cut from washi tape over card stock.
And William the Goat is the devil 🙂 His cape is cut the same way as Brownie’s.
The barn is lit from within and really looks cute at night.
Today is the Creative Circle’s August Blog Hop – Sprinkles of Life Ice Cream Parlor. I used Watermelon Wonder DSP and the Brick embossing folder to create this one! It easily holds 3 cards and envelope when the lid is raised. I used the Circle Framelits to make my “handle” for the lid.
I used Chalk Lines in White Stazon to embellish the windows.
You can change the look by simply changing the Designer Series paper. Here it is made up in the Sweet Li’l Things DSP with a Lots of Labels Framelits handle. The pattern can be purchased here. Can’t wait to make it up for Halloween and Christmas!! Want a chance to win this file? Leave a comment below telling me how you imagine this house made up! There will be a winner on August 10th from each blog on this hop – so make sure you see them all! Hugs, Fran
ETA- Congratulations to Cyndi! You’ve won the pattern!

It’s a busy time of year – New Catalog! My New Catalog Open House is tomorrow and I’m running around like a crazy person! These are some of the treats I’ve made – paper Ice Cream Cones (svgcuts.com file Ice Cream Birthday) I can’t wait for everyone to see the new stamps/dies/papers! Have you seen it yet? What’s your favorite new set?
Just a few things left to do – and then back to stamping! Hugs, Fran
Since it is so close to the launch of the new catalog – I’m dragging through my folder of “things I haven’t posted” to make sure I share the rest of the retiring things I have left to share. And then I came upon this – a pineapple box made from the absolutely adorable Polka Dot DSP and an svg file from SVGcuts.com. (Fruity Fiesta) This is perfect for a summer party – and it’s a box! Summer party? I stamped the front with the soon to retire Loving Thoughts.
It’s hard to wait for the new catty to go live! But this bright box helps. Hugs, Fran
It’s the Easter Bunny! He’s from a SVGCuts file called Bunny Hop and his head comes off to make a box. I did him up in Whisper White and a retired Designer Series paper – no idea what it was called! But he’s cute and easy to assemble and will look darling for an Easter display. The only thing he’s missing is a big, fuzzy tail – and I can take care of that Hugs, Fran
Oh my! I forgot to show you the original project for the Spiral Rose die Lollipop Flowers! This box is an svg file from SVGcuts (Honeybee Tea) that is meant to hold cakepops. I made it to hold some of the roses – or more accurately, the roses fit in the box
The DSP is retired and the acetate is from Quatrefancy Specialty DSP.
Supplies for the flowers
Cardstock – Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Wild Wasabi,
Etc – Spiral Rose die, Flower punch
It’s fun to combine the things I love! Hugs, Fran
