Tropical Paradise

…..that’s where I’ve been for 14 days and I got to prolonge my tropical feeling when I returned home with heavy crafting withdrawals, cause Mary of SVGCuts made our dreams come true with this gorgeous new kit Tiki Party:


This new kit contains 8 projects of which I made 6 and to start it off here’s the Lantern Trio:


I made these from AC Cardstock in Pacific, Key Lime and Lipgloss and decorated with patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs “Fun in the Sun” collection. I also used some small gems from Queen and Co. in yellow. I filled in some moss into the lanterns to give it a little extra natural feel and the flowers are inked with ink pads from Prima. 🙂

Next is the Palm Tree and Flamingo Straws:


For these two projects I used AC Cardstock in Moss, Chocolate, Lipgloss and Melon and colored in the tip of the beak with a black sharpie. The straws are from AC and yes….of course it is Mojito in the glas jar. 😛

Then I made the Tiki Bag and Palm Leaf:


I downsized the bag and leaf  to 50 % and added a small color shifting LED light. I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Clay, Pacific and Key Lime for the Tiki Bag and Key Lime and Moss for the Palm Leaf. Then I found a small jewelry ring-thingy to put in Tiki’s nose and added a small paper flower made from Prima flowers. I embossed the side panels of the bag with an embossing folder from Darice with a basket weave pattern.

Last but not least I made the Tropical Bucket:


For this cutie, I used AC Cardstock in Pacific, Key Lime and Sunflower and decorated with Doodlebug paper. I found some tiny gems in yellow in my stash for the center stem and inked the flowers with inkpads from Prima. I also put in a small LED light and embossed the flowers with a wood patterned embossing folder from Sizzix.

Oooooo I totally forgot about the Lei that you can see in the top picture. I used 6 colors (Pacific, Key Lime, Lipgloss, Melon, Sunflower and Lavender) of AC Cardstock, about 60″ of twine and 6 limecolored paper straws also from AC. So glad I made it in 6 colors….It’s gorgeous!!!!

Aaaahhh…..It felt sooooo good getting the creative juices flowing again and what a treat to do it with a kit that lets you stay in tropical paradise for a few days more. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and I really love to get some comments on how you like the projects. 🙂

Now on to more projects……………
