Time for Adventure….

…..soon I hope ๐Ÿ˜‰ Summer isn’t that far away neither is our Summer Vacation ๐Ÿ˜€ Today I just couldn’t get it out of my head. Being home alone for three days will get your thinker thinking ๐Ÿ˜€ HA HA….. Looking at the gorgeous paper “Safari Adventure” from Graphic 45 didn’t help to get it off my mind so I decided to make something using that paper collection ๐Ÿ™‚

First off I made the awesome Zig-Zag Bag from Travel the World SVG Kitย by SVGCuts:


I’ve made this one before, but I just love the size and design. So perfect for gift giving. I made the bag itself in black AC Cardstock and decorated it with a quote from the Silhouette Design Store (Designย #80218) and some cutouts from the patterend paper. I braided some hemp cord for the handles.

For a looooong time I have wanted to make the 8×8 Gift Box from Maison de Madeline SVG Kitย also from SVGCuts and even it’s so easy to assemble, I just hadn’t found the right paper for it. But “Safari Adventure” changed that:


This gift box is so usable due to its size and I love that you can use a 8×8 piece of paper as top panel on the lid. Think of all the possibilities with Graphic 45 papersย ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh my……

Finally I made one of the new Shadow Box Frames from Bird’s SVGs latest collection Picture Perfect


This is the “Large Square Shadow Box Photo Frame” and I altered it slightly since I didn’t use the flowers that come with the file but found some in the Silhouette Design Store that matched the paper – design #56209 and #136583 – along with some tropical leaves design #10191 ๐Ÿ™‚ I also changed the words on the label ๐Ÿ™‚

I made the box in black AC Cardstock and decorated it with the awesome patterend paper. The lilies are made from AC Cardstock as well – in Raspberry, Sunflower, Pomgranate and Moss and I inked the flowers with chalk ink from Prima in light pink and orange.

Here’s a picture with all three items together:


*and look: April had her little calf in this picture ๐Ÿ˜€ *

And no…my Summer Vaca isn’t to Africa so I’llย just have to give these away to someone who is going or maybe has been to Africa ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Easter and thanks for visiting. I’d love to hear what you think of the project โค

  1. Wow, these are fantastic Helle! You really picked the perfect paper to highlight your projects…or maybe it’s the other way around! Either way, these look fantastic. The shadow box in particular is just stunning and so colorful – LOVE IT! I’ve been in the mood to make some summer/tropical projects lately too – I guess everybody’s tired of the gloomy winter months!
