Wildflower Saloon - Tropical style

Howdy my friends.
Check out this new kit from SVGCuts.  I love everything about this kit, and I had a blast putting it together. Of course, I had to put a bit of a tropical twist on it so that it would fit in with my home decor.
The trunk of wildflowers - I love this box card. I cut the flowers out with white cardstock, and colored everything with copic markers or distress inks.

the whiskey barrel - well now it's a rum barrel, looks awesome. For the metal bands around the barrel, I took a silver ink pad and smunched it all over the black strips. Easy peasy.
For the lantern, I wanted clear "glass". I didn't have the little candle lamp, so I had to improvise. I created a clear tube of plastic to fit in the holes, wrapped a string of 10 LED lights around it and inserted the whole bandle inside the clear plastic lamp.

here it is all lit up. Oh and I made my own paper as well, I printed white cardstock with a copper patina pattern
oh and this awesome cowboy hat...what can I say about that? I thought it reminded me of Indiana Jones' Fedora. Again, I printed my own paper texture- it looks almost like suede. pretty cool! A tropical hat band and "flamingo feathers" finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by the blog, I really enjoyed making all these projects from the kit. Bye for now.

Dog selfie

Did you ever make a project that just makes you smile? This one did for me.
I made this birthday card for my friend/co-worker/dog lover.
It started with the instant camera box card SVG file. You can  purchase it from the Parkside Row kit over at

I used an absolutely fabulous picture from artist Howard Robinson. He has a number of animal selfie pics - all of them are so fun.

The embossing folder used was Sparkles from Tim Holtz. The rest was colored and assembled as per the instructions.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this fun box card. See ya soon...

Urban Scrapbook's Monthly Challenge Kit - April

Hello everyone.
Here is my layout for Urban Scrapbook's monthly kit. It features paper from "Twilight" by One Canoe Two. You can see the kit in detail here.
I used everything in the kit. The only "extra" thing I used was a coral colored marker (copic) for my letters. You can check out the other layouts from the team over at the blog using the same link as above.
