Sandcastle card

Hello everyone

I know I have been m.i.a for about week but I couldn't craft. First my blade went out on my cameo, so I had to wait for it to ship to me. Then I had to work on some birthday invitations for a friend. Those took a good bit of time so I couldn't work on all the SVG Cuts projects I had been wanting to work on :(. Oh well that has past now and I have a project for you today.

I created a sandcastle like card from the Summer Street Carnival file from SVG Cuts. I altered the file a bit so instead of it looking like a fun house I made it look like a sandcastle.

As far as the details go I use another file from SVG Cuts called Wet N Wild .
I wish I could put more pictures up but my husband took our camera with him and I had to take this picture with my iPad.

Please come back tomorrow for another project.

Quick post

Well it was a perfect evening for crafting. So I thought. My daughter fell asleep super early tonight since she started swimming lessons she has been really sleepy. I thought well that's a great thing now I can work on crafty all night long. WRONG! Boy was I. Went into my crafting room sat down and got ready to start cutting on my silhouette and guess what???

My blade finally went out. Like seriously out. It would just act like it was cutting but it would not cut anything. I tried everything to fix it but eventually I gave up. I gave up only because first I started thinking I had not changed the blade since I got it and that was back in December. I use it almost everyday so I wore that poor blade out. Second, maybe it was a sign that I need to just give it a break and relax for the evening since I have been sick. So that's what I did. I put it all down and took a break.

With this being said I won't be able to post any awesome projects until I go to Michaels and buy a new blade or order one online have not decide how long I can go without crafting. Knowing myself I won't be able to even last past tomorrow.

Just thought I would update everyone in case you all were wondering why I had not posted anything this week. Hope to post something soon though so please come back and visit me

Fathers day tool box

I have been working on this project for about 2 weeks now off and on. I had started it before going to my work retreat and then I had to leave for a week and I wasn't able to actually finish it until today. I'm so excited to share it with everyone. So here goes

Well what do you think does it look like a tool box to you? I worked so hard to get it just right. For the actual box I used an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Ryan's play date. I altered the file a bit in Make the Cut so I could put drawers in the front.

Here is a top view of the box. The tag and the tool came from another SVG Cuts file called My Day with Dad.

Here it is once you open it. I tried making it look like the actual inside of a tool box. You know the part at the top that comes out. Yep you can lift this one up too

This is the first drawer. I used the curio shelf from Attic Treasures for this drawer and the tools are from Cliff's Clubhouse Cards

Here is a picture of the second shelf. Again I used the same curio shelf I just altered the file so that there were no compartments. The tools came from the same place also. I decided that this was a good spot to insert the gift card.
We are almost done just 3 more pictures I promise.

My husband actually gave me the idea for this. I thought that it looked a bit plan on the outside so I decided to jazz it up a bit. He said well why don't you get some stickers like the ones that people put on there actual toolboxes. So I went with his idea. I think it turned out cute and gave it that little extra thing it needed. What do you think?

Well that's it for me today. I hope that you all enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed making it. Please leave comments and questions I always love hearing from everyone.
