Today i would like to show you my newest project.It is the cool 3D Countdown Box from Lori Whitlock of the Silhouette Online Store..I decided to build a 10 x 10 inch Adventcalender for a Man.
I designed the panels with the numbers on in my Silhouette Designer Software.I took lots of free Vintage PIN UP Girl pictures and the numbers ( Font Comic Sans MS) and made them to print & cut Files.

The base box i cut out of plain cardboard and decorated with Metal cardboard .
For the corners i used silver card Candis they look like Brads.The little boxes are plain white cardstock.
Since iam German and we have our Christmas on the 24th i didnt need a box with 25 on.It will be two boxes for the 24th with a little special Pin up girl and two sweets.

Today i decided to join the Autumn Challenge at SVGcuts.com .So i took the Pick a Pumpkin SVG Kit .I stayed with just this Set to make this 8 inch big Pumkin Lamp.
I cut the base of orange Cardstock after i altered the Base of the Pumpkin with the 
Flower center on my Silhouette Cameo .The holes i got then i covered with yellow transparent Paper from the inside.
 The Lid ,the Leaves and the Stem i send through my Cuttlebug to get some nice 
Texture.The curlys i made out of green plastic covered wire and cardstock.
 The Corn Flowers i made out of the flowers in the Set in putting cut Lines in them to 
split the petals.Then to give it a little more Autumn look i glued 3 leather buttons to the Lid.
Some Metal Swirls on the outside of the Lid to finish it off.

For the outside of the Base i glued some orange fine unwoven fabric instead of the accent panels to it.
I used a LED Light Chain and filled it with Organza Material to cover it up.
So now i will hop over to SVGcuts to get it in the Challenge.

It's been a few days that i posted something, sorry but i think i got a Craft blockade at the moment.I hope it will be over soon but until then i will show you a project i made a few month ago.It is a cute Baby shower gift Box from SVGcuts.com   Peony Cottage SVG Kit.

I cut the Peony Cottage Box out of German Designer Cardstock .The Decorations are
some 3D Sticker for a sweet little Baby Boy. I used creme color Ribbon all the way 
around the Gutter.I filled it with a little gift for the new Little Baby.

I hope this will help you over my little Blockade.I try to get my self back in the 
Craft Mode soon .xox
