Baseball Thank You Cards

These are custom order Thank You Cards I  made for Baseball Coaches.  
I used My Scrap Chick's Baseball Allstars file to create the cute cards.  The 'Thank You' sentiment is from SVGCuts from the NoteCard Captions SVG Collection.

On the scoreboard, I put each coach's name.  The backboard was embossed with the wood grain embossing folder and inked all around to bring the wood grain out.  I used black brads in the corners to look like nails.
I added white stitching around the baseball hat using a white gel pen. The logo on the hat was just printed and cut out and then glued to the front of the hat. The ball and glove is on a action wobble so it moves around.

Everything was inked...love inking the edges!!  The background paper is hard to see in the pictures, but it is actually paper that looks like dirt, and it looks really cute!

Large 3D Cake Slices

These cake slices are so cute and they are a big size to allow lots of goodies to be put inside!  You can make just one and give it as a gift or make 8 slices and make a whole cake!  Super cute!!  The file is from SVGCuts from the 
"B Is For Birthday SVG Kit".  The fun part is embellishing it...so many choices and ways to make it fun and cute! LOVE this cake slice!!

 I added a stamped sentiment banner to my slices and a few gems on the little flower. On the girly slice, I added a ruffled lace strip.

The sides are embossed with the "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug embossing folder.

The flame has some glitter on it to add some sparkle!

I added a cute strand of tiny pom poms to this slice.

3D Flower Card

I love this card and all its dimensions. It is so simple and so pretty!   The file comes from SVGCuts from the  
Cards For Mom SVG Kit. I added a large brad in the middle and a stamped sentiment that was punched out with a scalloped punch.  I used a white gel pen to add some stitching effect.  I also embossed the blue banner to give it a bit more depth.  Inking the edges really helps the flower to stand out!

Anchor Card

I'm in love with this adorable anchor card from SVG Cuts!!  It is from the High Skies SVG Kit. I thought my red, white and blue paper went well with it and I just happened to have the stamp too!  It was a perfect fit!  :)  The paper is the Cruise Voyage Collection from Gartner Studios.  I braided my own "rope" too!


Octagon Gift Box

This octagon shaped box from the Maison de Madeline SVG Kit from SVGCuts is just so pretty and so simple to put together.  Think about the many different looks and possibilities that you can do depending on what paper you choose!! I added some sticky gems to each section and tied a simple bow around that adorable handle.


Margarita Birthday Card

This cute and fun card comes from the Fruity Fiesta SVG Kit from SVGCuts.  This Kit has some adorable 3D boxes and other cute cards!!

Bath Tub w/ Relaxing Girl ~ Treat Box

I absolutely LOVED this file when it came out from SVGCuttingFiles.com.  You can get the 3D Bathtub Treat Box file HERE.  I loved it so much, I didn't change too much from the original idea. Isn't it just too cute!?

I would definitely recommend cutting at least 5 layers of the legs.  I cut 3 and it was kind of wobbly, but a few more would have been perfect and sturdy!   

 I added a ribbon to her ponytail~every ponytail needs a bow!
I love how the blue Hershey Kisses look like shiny bubbles!

Aloha! ~ Hawaiian Paper Cake

This is a custom order cake for someone who was sending their son to Hawaii for a college graduation gift.  Nice gift!  They wanted something really colorful and fun.  The centerpiece was made using several different files. Each person coming to the party was going to put money and a note in each slice instead of bringing a card.  What a fun idea!

Here is what I used to design the cake:

*The big stamp card comes from My Scrap Chick called Aloha Card.  

*From SVGCuts: *(lots of fun stuff in all these collections!)
~the sunglasses are from Beach Bum SVG Collection Part I
~the surfboard and adirondack chair are from Beach Bum SVG Collection Part II
~the volleyball and coconut drink are from Beach Bum SVG Collection Part III

The whole centerpiece just sits on top of the cake and the lei was bought at the dollar store and fits perfectly around it to hold it together.  Bright and colorful!

Tea Cup Easel Cards

Here are some pretty Tea Cup Easel Cards that I made using My Scrap Chick's file: Teacup Easel Cards with Pockets.  These cards seemed like they would be a little difficult to assemble and make, but to my surprise, they were so easy and I really loved how they all turned out!  (I made 6 of them)  The flower on the front is from the Flower Pretties file.  Such a cute flower!!  I added a sticky gem to the centers of mine.  

The top of the tea cup stays open~there's a pocket (if you choose), so you can add a packet of tea!  So cute!!  

The cards fold flat, so they are easy to mail.  :)

Thermos Gift Box

This is such a cute 3D Thermos!!  I thought it would be hard to assemble, but it was super easy and fast and I LOVE the way it turned out!  I made this for my Dad for his birthday and filled it with his favorite candy.  I love that it is quite tall too!  The file to make this comes from SVGCuts Camp Smore SVG Kit

I added a cute bottle cap embellishment to this.  First, I ran a bottle cap through my cuttlebug to flatten it out.  Then stamped my sentiment and glued it to the bottle cap. Then added the bubble cap to the top.  I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the top so I could hang it from the natural twine wrapped around the lid.

Love this simple and easy card from My Scrap Chick from the Graduation Trio set!  I added the sentiment banner and the "13" for the year.

"Get Well" Bandaid Card

I just love this cute and simple Bandaid file from
SVG CuttingFiles.com.  I turned it into a card and made several to have on hand when I need them.  :)  I just added different colored flowers and banners.
