Welcome to our September anything Fall themed goes joint contest!

You may create anything Fall related and using any files from either SDS or SVG Attic or combined them!  We hope you can join us!  To get you started we are sharing some inspiration below.

First up is Ruthie sharing this Autumn Mum ensemble.
 Ruthie used SVG Attic's Autumn Splendor set.  She used the bucket and 3D Mums... the set has lots more!

Next we have Jearise sharing a coaster set.
Jearise used SDS's Harverst Corner and Block Vinyl or Stencil design #50618

Following is Esther with a basket and acorns.
Esther used the file #37451, 3D Bowl Basket and the file #34487, 3D Acorn.

Finally I am sharing a journal page.

Tutorial: Bat Easel Card

This is a tutorial for the bat easel card that will soon be at SVG Attic.  The picture above also shows the coordinating envelope that will be in that kit.  The card is also available in the Silhouette Store

Here is a view of the different pieces that are included with the easel card.  I cut the base, card front, upper decorative square, upper bat and upper Trick or Treat pieces out of black cardstock.  The faux ribbon and background decorative square are shown in a orange print cardstock and the shadow bat and Trick or Treat pieces are cut from patterned green cardstock.

Start with the base piece and fold both of the score lines towards you.

Bend the cardstock at the inner score line so it creates a 5" square.

Add tape runner to the area just below the score line visible on the front.

Place the 5" square card front on top of the base, lining up all sides.

Open the card up and bend up the scalloped tabs that are cut in the base.

Place the card front behind the scallops.  This is how the base of the card should look.  Set the base aside for now to start on the decorative layers.

Layer the black decorative square on top of the orange square with tape runner.

Next layer to add is the green Trick or Treat shadow piece.

Then add the black Trick or Treat layer.

Now bring back the card base that is folded and adhere the decorative layers to the front.

Using liquid adhesive attach the faux ribbon piece towards the left side of the card front.

Next, layer the black bat layer on top of the green shadow.

I added foam squares to the back of the bat, for extra dimension, but you could also use liquid adhesive.

Add the bat to the top left corner of the card.

Add whatever embellishments you want and your bat easel card is finished!

Here is a close up of the embellishments that I added to the card front.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Tutorial: BOO! Boxes

This is a tutorial for the BOO! boxes that are going to be available soon at SVG Attic.  They are also available in the Silhouette store at these numbers:  32809328083280732806.  The tutorial below is for the second "O" which is #32807.

These are the box pieces.  I cut them out of patterned cardstock.  These are the pieces you receive if you purchase the boxes through the Silhouette store.  There is an accent letter piece that is included in the SVG Attic version of these boxes, but it is not pictured above.  I cut the accent letter piece out of black glitter paper.  Tip:  The black glitter cardstock I used was from DCWV's Glitzy Glitter 12x12 paper stack.  It cut perfectly with my Cameo and the glitter didn't flake off.

First bend all of the perforated score lines away from you.

Next add liquid adhesive on the bottom flap of the box front.

Adhere it to the other box piece at the end without the curve cut out.

Apply liquid adhesive to the flaps on the first side, one flap at a time.

Press each flap firmly against the side of the box.

Continue with the second flap

and adhere this is what the first side looks like when adhered together.

Flip the box over to the opposite side and add liquid adhesive to both of the flaps.

Press the box side onto the flaps lining up the edges.

This is a side view of what your box should look like now.  Make sure the side flaps of the box are bent inward

and close the lid.  This is what the side/rear view of the box will look like.

This is the front view with a battery operated tea light inside.

Finally add the decorative letter piece to the front lining it up with the letter on the box base.

Here is a look at all four of the completed BOO! boxes.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
