3D Paper Snowy House Treat Box | SVGCuts

I finally got around to making the 3D Snowy house box from Winter's Chill SVG Kit, and I absolutely love how it turned out! How cute is that!?! I've had this file in my SVG stash forever, and I can't believe it took me this long to make it!!!

Christmas Gift,SVG Cuts files,treat box,#SVGCuts,Gift Box,luminary,decoration,Christmas Decor,3D Snowy House Box,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

This little house is a gift in itself but it's also big enough to add some gifts or goodies. Add a tea light to the inside and watch it glow! Make a few more and you have the beginnings of a paper Christmas village!


To add a more Christmasy look to it, I added a wreathe to the front of the house from the latest Santa's Surprises SVG Kit and shrunk it down quite a bit. I love how festive the house looks!


Hope you like my take on this SVG Cuts 3D Snowy House Box, hopefully, will have some time to tackle the Mistletoe Manor soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is what it looks like without the bottom container, still gorgeous! I so love the Fall and its gorgeous colors!


I have had this centerpiece on display on one of the Units at the Cross Cancer Hospital where I work! I love how something as simple as paper can become art and brighten up space, maybe even make someone smile!

Woodland Baby Shower Cake

Today I am so super excited to share with you all my Woodland Baby Shower Cake! Yay!!! So very happy with how it turned out! How cute is that!?!

This cake was very different then cakes I have made in the past. This time I covered the cake with modeling chocolate, and the smell of this cake was unbelievable!!! Wish there was a scratch and sniff button you could push to smell it, lol! Honestly, I wish I had tried using modelling chocolate long ago! I know I'll be using it a lot more in the future too ;)


Here are some more pics of my little woodland critters!
How adorable are they!?! I made them ahead of time out of fondant so that they would have plenty of time to harden.


This cake was a 2 layer 9 inch round cake. Top part vanilla, bottom is chocolate flavored. Iced in buttercream and covered with ganache. Finished off with modelling chocolate! Can you say yummy?

Congrats to soon to be "Vovo" (Grandma) Connie who requested I make her this Woodland Baby Shower Cake for her soon to be Grandson! Wishing the family all the best :)

Thanks for stopping by!

This will make one cute Christmas gift for sure... all I need to do is add some treats to the inside!


Here are the files you will need to recreate this tree and what I did...

(cut 5 and score down the center of each, glue them back to back)

Tree - Stacking Round Cake Box from Celebrations 3D SVG Kit 
(cut one extra box and enlarged it)

Tag - Party Hat Tag from Celebrations 3D SVG Kit 
(deleted cut lines, folded in half)

(cut smallest box and resized it)


How cute is that tag?
The stamp I used comes from Craftin Desert Divas Happy Celebrations Stamp Set


This gorgeous double sided paper has been sitting in my stash for a while!
It's from K&C Company.


Check out all the layers of boxes I have to fill up with goodies!

Row House - House Warming Gift | 3D Paper Gift Box | SVGCuts

Friends of ours recently moved into their brand new home and thought this would make the perfect little house warming gift! Finally, I had an excuse to make a row house from SVG Cuts Parkside Row SVG Kit! LOVE it!!!

SVG Cuts files,3D,treat box,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,House Warming Gift,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

I added a cloud from Bunny Hop SVG Kit to add my sentiment to using print n cut on the Cameo. The banner was simply made by cutting out triangles and stamping a letter on each pennant.



 How cool is that all lit up? SO realistic looking!


If you loved my Row House, you are going to love SVG Cuts latest Kit "Mistletoe Manor"

Here is a peek! Amazing right!!! Perfect for Christmas :)

3D Halloween Skull Treat Box/Luminary


Have you all seen Fleurette Blooms latest SVG Kit, Dia De Los Muertos? It is SO cool!
The 3D Skulls, the gorgeous flowers, and the banner... love it all! For those of you that don't know about Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead, this holiday focuses on family and friends gathering to pray for and remember those who have died. While we in North America celebrate Halloween, many other countries throughout the world celebrate this holiday on October 31 and November 1.

So today I want to share with my Halloween version, a 3D Skull Treat Box/Luminary. How cool is that, love how this file could be so versatile!


To the skull I added a few little cute spiders from here. The stitches I added come from the mouth of the one piece Skull Box from here.


Here it is all lit up, the perfect Halloween decoration! This Skull is also perfect for filling up with some Halloween treats and giving it away to your favorite little monster.


Hope you all enjoyed my 3D Halloween Skull Treat Box/Luminary. Maybe even inspired to make your own skulls for Halloween or Dia De Los Muertos!

Frozen Themed Birthday Cake and Card | SVGCuts

Alright! Prepare yourself for some cuteness overload!!!

Today I am sharing with you the cutest Birthday cake I think I have made so far!!! I am super happy with how it turned out :)

Sugar Shards,SVG Cuts files,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,Olaf,Frozen Themed Birthday Cake and Card,Birthday party planning,Ice,Box card,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

I made this cake for my little Goddaughter Stella who celebrated her 5th Birthday this weekend! Happy Birthday, Stella!

OK! How cute is Olaf!?!


I also incorporated my love for paper crafting into the cake. I don't think I could ever get fondant letters perfectly cut like that. When wet, the fondant is pretty sticky which acts like glue. Doing it with paper saved me tons of time too!


The snowflakes are also paper cut using my Silhouette Cameo. The files for the snowflakes come from the Christmas Box Cards SVG Kit here.

This cake made up of 2, 10" rounds. The bottom layer is chocolate flavored and the top is a vanilla cake. The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.


Below is a side view.

Oh, and the "ice" is just sugar shards.
So easy to make... just takes 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup corn syrup, and a touch of food coloring.
Heat it up to melt on medium heat (simmer about 5 minutes), add your color (whisk together), then pour it onto a Silpat to harden. Once hardened crack away!


To coordinate with the cake I thought I would make the Birthday Girl a matching Frozen Card.
With a few minor alterations, this card worked perfectly with the Frozen theme. It could totally be used as a birthday invite too! For more details on the card click Christmas Box Cards SVG Kit here!


The Stamp I used comes from Craftin Desert Diva's - Simply Said.

And here is a closer look at the Frozen wonderland ;)


Hope you have enjoyed the "coolest" Frozen themed cake and coordinating card that I made!

21st Birthday Box Card


Hi Guys!

So this week my baby sister Catarina celebrated her 21st Birthday! I can't believe it. Feels like it was yesterday I was in the delivery room with my mom!!! Yes I was, and was also the first person to see her... I was 17 when she was born and that experience was the reason I went into Nursing school! 

So today I want to share with you the cute birthday box card I made her. The files come from Fleurette Bloom's Celebrations SVG Kit. I love that the kit includes various elements that you can use and play with.


Instead of adding a cake, I thought it would be cute to make the 21 as a candle.


The stamp comes from Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations.
The bright paper I used comes from Doodlebug Designs Springtime paper pad.
Love this collection!


Here is a pic of me and my baby sister. 
This photo was taken a few weeks ago at our cousin's wedding. 
Happy Birthday Cat! Love you :)


Hope you enjoyed my post today and got to know me a little more!

Thanks for stopping by!
