50th Anniversary

Beautiful decorations for a Golden Anniversary celebration! Yummy cake with gold piping, and a flower and pearl bedecked candelabra from the Nevermore collection at SVG Attic.

Thanks for looking!

God Bless The USA

Oh, I love these items made with the Vintage Nation paper pack from The Paper Studio! And....I used it with the Vintage Nation collection from SVG Attic!

I used a color-changing battery tealight on the inside, and it's just like a firecracker!

Thanks for looking!

The Key West Lighthouse

The beautiful Key West Lighthouse is the single photo on a scrapbook page featuring the "Cape Cod" files from SVG Attic. I loved working on this page! The fishnet was a great background for the photo mat, and adorned with the starfish and shells, it looks quite lovely. I used the fence and sand details for the bottom of the page, and anchored it with...an anchor! The twine sailors knots on the journaling box finished off the nautical themed page. Thanks for looking!

Rockers For Scholars

The local event, "Rockers For Scholars" raises scholarship money every year for a student from one of our local schools who is preparing for a career in the arts. Local bands get together and play, and have a silent auction to help raise the funds. This year I made and donated a couple of musical items for the silent auction. It was such fun to create these pieces, made from files by SVGCuts.

This vintage-look guitar is 11" tall and has pearls on the head and the bridge.

This jukebox, styled after the iconic Wurlitzer, has a color-changing tea light on the inside, shining through the colored vellum side panels.

Please be sure and leave a comment! Thanks for looking! 

Winter Storm "Luau"

What a LOOOOONG winter in Indiana! Since they started naming the winter storms, I decided to use a play on that new trend and call my party "Winter Storm Luau!" What fun! Family and friends, good food, and good music; a perfect recipe to beat those winter blues! I hung the flip flop lights from our camper, and the grandkids and I made a bunch of other decorations.

In the above picture, you can see the cute guitars (we pretended they were ukuleles) and the parrots on the top of the windows. These were from a file called "Luau" from SVG Attic.

Group/family picture here. The colonnade was decorated with paper lanterns from the same file.
Close up of the cute parrot. Actually, the grandkids put these together! They are quite good at making things from my ZING. This parrot was enlarged to make it as big as we could on a 12 x 12 paper.

The kitchen baker's rack was transformed into a Tiki Bar, using the same guitar file
for the ends of the sign.

Another view of the paper lanterns and leaves. Oh, and Jazzie had to be in the picture, too!
Thanks for looking!

Proud Grandmother

Four fabulous grandkids and Swarovski crystals make for a beautiful Grandmother's bracelet.

The birthstones are July, March, March, and March. The last two are twins!

Because all of my grandkids belong to my daughter, her Mother's bracelet is exactly the same! And her mother-in-law has these four, plus two more, so her bracelet (in the middle) has the two additional grandkids added to it.

I love the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals, and I'm a proud grandma! Thanks for looking!


Here is a cute nutcracker stand-up card that I made for my boss. When I went to Germany last year, he wanted me to bring back a Nutcracker for him. I wasn't able to find one, so I made a paper one instead! This guy is about 5 inches tall and is cute as can be!
