I made it! We got through the worst of the hurricane today so I was able to craft some. What else was I going to do cannot go out anywhere. So I got to crafting hoping that our power would not go out in the middle of one of my projects. I worked on a couple of projects since I will be flying out of the country on Saturday for work. I figured I would make enough to Be able to post while I am gone.
For today's post I couldn't decide what I wanted to show first so I figured I would show a fall project to you all
I used the Fall Harvest file from SVG cuts for both of my projects. I figured I would start off slow and not complicated at all just in case the power went out. So I stuck to the original file and started cutting.

I love the way the papers match the theme. I plan on displaying these in my living room during the fall. They are super cute files. You gotta love SVG Cuts.

I wood embossed the basket to give it a more real look but the only problem is that it makes the paper really weak so be careful when you do this.

I tried to use some of the same papers for my Indian Corn since I plan on displaying them in my house I didn't want a whole variety of colors.
Hope you likey. Come back to check out more of my projects soon.

I am so sorry that I have not been able to post things like I would have liked to do, I just have been super busy at work with an audit that when I get home all I want to do is rest. My plans were to start posting again this week, well guess what? Hurricane Issac messed up those plans. Instead of relaxing and crafting I'm watching the news for the updates of the hurricane. I leave right outside of new Orleans and the way things are going it is suppose to hit sometime this afternoon. I will try to post updates if we do not lose power.

Gable Gift Boxes

Ok so I believe this is the last project for the Mario party that I used an SVG Cuts file for.  So sad I know. Without them though I wouldn't have been able to do all the projects I wanted to do. So thanks so much SVG Cuts.  Ok back to my project. I LOVE these, they came out amazing I think.  I saw some online to purchase( this is where the idea came from) so I remembered that SVG Cuts released Classic Gift Boxes kit with a box similar to the one they were selling premade online.

So my brain started thinking hmm... how can I make one like that? So using the gable box from the kit I took it and shrank it down a bit and found some mario pictures and one thing lead to another until I got the final project below.

Side 1

Side 2

As far as sides 3 and 4 I did decorate them but only on 1 box. I decided that doing all 20 would be too much since I decided to create these the night before the party. I will show you how it was suppose to be, but they still turned out cute even though I wasn't able to put them on there.

So do you want to see them all together? I got a picture of some of them set up at the party.

Thats it for today, I will be back with pictures of the whole party set up. So look for that post soon.

Star boxes

I'm so sorry that I am just now posting these. I have been super busy with work and finishing up all the goodies for the super Mario party. I am almost done. The party is Sunday so I better be almost done. I have a couple more things to finish up, that I am hoping to finish tomorrow.

Back to my project though. So today I am going to show you all these adorable star shaped boxes I made as table decorations for the party. I got the file from SVG Cuts stars and stripes kit. I just altered the file a bit so that the ovals were cut out to make the eyes of my star.

I think these are so cute. I can't believe how much they look like the stars from super Mario. What do you think?

Here is a sneak peak at these cute stars in action at the birthday party.  Yeah thats right I said sneak peak. I plan on doing a post with all my projects all together in action at the birthday party but first I want to show each piece a post at a time. That way they each get there little bit of spotlight.

See my cute invite in the front we had a couple extras so we decided to use them as decorations.

Well I hope to be back tomorrow with more projects from the party. See you soon.
