Peachy Keen Challenge 13-43 :: 3-D Objects :: Fall Sports



Good Evening!

Today I have a really cool project to share with you.  I made this for the Peachy Keen 3D Objects Fall Sports Challenge.  My hubby is a huge Dallas Cowboys Fan so I thought I would make it the Cowboy Colors.  


This is originally a Napkin Holder but I thought he could use it for a pen holder on his desk.  It is from SVGCuts.com Football Party Kit.  The football player is from the Game Day SVG Collection, also from SVGCuts.com.  The football player's face is from The Moodies Face Assortment from Peachy Keen.  


To make the Cowboys Logo I found an image online and traced it in the Silhouette program.  The star is just a basic star layered 3 times, also from the Online Silhouette Store.  


This is where you could put the napkins, or in the case of this one pens.  :)


Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great day!!

You've been BOO'd



Good Morning!  

I can't believe Halloween is next Thursday!  Why is time going by so fast?  Is it just me or has the month of October been flying by.  Speaking of flying by, Check out this cute little owl.  Isn't he cute?  I'm going to give this little bag to one of my girlfriends.  It is filled with some of her favorite candy.  


The twine is Pumpkin Orange from Timeless Twine.  The bag is an X-Small Kraft bag and the Doily is a 4 Inch Doily.  Both of them are from Timeless Twine.   I used the Halloween Vampire Owl from Miss Kate Cuttables for the owl.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom Stamps, it's from the Bewitched stamp set.  I'm going to link this up to the Scrappy Mom Creepy Crafts Challenge.  


Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day!

3D Camper



Hello Everyone!

I'm back today with a fun 3D box to share with you.  When I saw this 3D Camper from SVG Cut's I knew I just had to make it.  Especially since my family loves to camp.  The camper is from the Camp Firefly SVG Kit. The bottom piece is actually a box.  


I used the Pumpkin Orange Twine to hang my banner with.  I love how the twine looks, it matches the orange buttons (tail lights) perfectly.  


Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see what Annette made :)
