When i saw the Ferris Wheel from SVGcuts.com   Summer Street Carnival SVG Kit .I just had to make it.I decided to size it down to  8 x 8 inches .

Since i like my mirror cardboard i cut everything out of it.It gives it a nice Metal look.And with a few candles near it at night time a lovley shine to it..The liner piece inside and the panels on the cars i send through my Cuttlebug.On the Base i used silver Brads to keep it together and they look like real rivets.
I didnt have any wooden Dowels at hand.But since i made it in Mini i cut  shish kebab rods for the Wheel and the cars.Some metal embellishments on the front done !!

I made a Birthday card for the 65th Birthday of my Uncle.One of his favorite records is Sheila from Tommy Roe.So it had to be this one.

I used the Rockin & Rollin SVG Kit from SVGcuts.com.I made a 6 x 6 inch print & cut layer for the Record cover .Then cut ,build and distressed it with disstress ink to give it the real old look.I cut the record shaped Card on my Silhouette Cameo out of black Cardstock .To get the real look i decided to cut the second layer out of glossy black Vinyl and the middle layer out of matt vinyl.

The middle label is a print & cut i created out of the cover i made before.The sleeve cover is just plain white cardstock distressed as well to get it look like lots of people touched it.
My Uncle loved his card very much. First he thought it was a real music CD i made for him.And we all had a good laugh when he realized it was only a card.

Hello everybody i have to share a really cute project i been waiting to make for a long time.I always wanted to get one of this German Strandkorb --roofed wicker beach chairs to build.
Since i can`t get one as an SVG file for my Silhouette Cameo i had to make it by HAND !
I found this cool German Blog with the Templates for free.Thank you very much! There is a link on the end of the post with a E-mail adress to ask for it # only German PDF file #.

So this is what came out of it.A 5 x 5 inch Strandkorb! I used really strong beige cardstock for the base .

For the layers and the Footboxes i used dark brown .I cut german Design Scapbook cardstock for the complete decoration.

The Roof is fixed with big white Brads and the Footboxes with little blue Brads.For the side handles i took small Eyelets and red and white Twine i fixed onto blue cardboard.

I would love to have this as a cutting file !!!But for now iam a Handmade crafter LOL !
