Back To School Blog Hop | SDS SVG Attic

Welcome to the SnapDragon Snippets/SVG Attic Back To School blog hop and to my blog!
We are super excited to have you join us!
Hope you have so far been inspired by the creativity of each of Snapdragon Snippets and SVGAttic design team members.  If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

I created several projects for this hop:

First up I have a Layout I created that provided my daughter and me lots of laughter!  Long story-short, neither of us could locate pictures of my grand daughters' back-to-school from last year that my son in law took... But I needed some pronto! I had already created the Layout!  In desperation, more like my daughter is so fun and entertains my everything-must-match-scrapbooking frenzy, she offered to take "pretend" back to school pictures because my grand daughters do not go back to school until the 25th and I needed them before the 16th!  We laughed so much and thanked her for reading my mind! LOL. We called it a "dry run" haha.
So I decided to keep the journal entry true and write exactly what happened!  Besides I know I will get pictures on the actual day and can later scrapbook those.




I have a second Layout of my super smart grand daughter Jasmine who just happens to love to read. She is starting 6th grade and taking some pre-advanced placement (AP) courses!




Next I have two school buses to give to my grand daughters.






I will be writing the message on the white part before I ship.

Last I am sharing a card I made using the apple which I converted to a shaker and stamped using stamps by Dilo En Español.

Hope my projects have inspired you to create!

July Anything Goes Contest | SDS SVGAttic

Today I am sharing this super cute 3d fire hydrant box that I created for out joint SnapDragon Snippets - SVGAttic July anything goes contest.

I think I just found the theme for my grand son's second birthday party!  (He just turned one and the theme was all about construction - I will be sharing more details and pictures from that soon here on my blog).
This picture was enhanced on my iPad.  I looks a bit more engine red then the actual color of cardstock I chose to create it with.
This picture below reflects the true color best.
It opens up to this cute box! Love it!  and I think I know just the friend I will be giving this to so that she can give to her retired fireman husband!
The file I used is file #62060 that you can find over at the Silhouette online store HERE  You will also find a water bottle cover and a couple of fun cards!! Checked them out HERE
I used two different tones of red cardstock and a silver/shiny one.

OK for our contest head on over HERE so that you can see what the Creative design team created for your inspiration and for more details on the prizes!  Hope you can join us!

Summer Lovin' Blog Hop | SDS SVG Attic

Welcome to the SnapDragon Snippets - SVG Attic Summer Lovin' co-blog hop and to my blog!

UPDATE: Winners have been announced HERE


We are super excited to have you join us today!  We hope you just arrived from Diane's blog, but If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Atttic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

We hope you are inspired by the creativity of the design teams of  SnapDragon Snippets and SVG Attic.

Here is the projects I created for this hop:

First up is this single page scrapbook layout of my grand daughter having the time of her life last year on the 4th of July while my son in law and other grand daughter were all into the fireworks.
It was a bit time consuming, but I love it!
I un-grouped the 4th of July stitching template file and used most of the included designs.  I added a bit of red and blue ink on the background.

Below a close up of the firecracker which is part of the new box card available at the Silhouette online store.  I added some color the the PP and some Zig wink of stella glitter.
 And below a close up of the hand stitching I did using the awesome stitching pattern also available at the Silhouette online store.

For my second projects I created a basket using this file.  I enlarged the file the biggest I could using 12x12 paper.  I used 3 sheets of patterned paper.  I meant to enlarge the watermelon but I like the size so I can use as a gift box.  Both my grand daughter love watermelon so I just had to create one.  The basket is large enough and sturdy enough that I can use later to hold.... my washi tapes? or?

 I also used the pear, the apple and the strawberry 3D files that of course are available at the Silhouette online store.
