It happens to me so often. I see some new SVG files and ….BAM…. my mind starts to think up ideas on how to use them. Sometimes alternative, sometimes weird and sometimes downright crazy.

This time…..well you be the judge:


This 8″ x 8″ picture or plaque is made with two new and amazing files from Simply Crafty Svg’s – namely the Soda Can and the Canoe from the Canoe Gift Box. And yes this is exactly what I imagined when I saw them.

The plaque itself is from the Silhouette Design Store (design ID #295470) and that goes for the “splash” (design ID #76959), and the puddle (design ID #48220)

I used AC Cardstock for the Can and Canoe + Bazzill Bling Cardstock for the Can. All edges are inked with Distress Ink.

The plaque is made from AC Poster Board with Wood pattern.

For the splash and puddle I used pearl paper/Majestic paper.

Finally I added a silver enamel dot on the top of the Can, a few Rocks along the lake shore and made some drops here and there with Ranger Glossy Accents.

I downsized the Can to 75% and the Canoe to 25% That is very small! The rocks on the shore are granite chippings from my drive way. Almost too small to assemble with my fat fingers 😀


I found the Quote online and made it with the Print ‘n Cut function on my Silhouette and last but not least the label on the Can is also made with Print ‘n Cut and the file is also from the Silhouette Design Store (design ID #20891)

Well – that’s it. So now you get to tell me if I’m artsy or just plain crazy…. 😀 – just in a comment below ❤

Thanks for visiting – be back soon I hope. I’m moving very very soon but the first thing to get unpacked and ready is my craft space 😀

  1. Det er super godt gået Helle. Gad godt finde ud af hvor du køber karton og andre “fornødenheder”. Synes specielt 12×12″ karton er svært at få i ordentlig kvalitet til en rimelig pris i DK.

    1. Tak skal du ha’ Liselotte 🙂 Jeg køber meget af mit papir i UK enten ved Craftie-Charlie eller Craftelier. Synes også at det lækre papir er gået meget tilbage i DK desværre. 12×12 karton køber jeg hos Fru Hansen eller Gavlhuset. Og næsten alt andet køber jeg hos Hobbyboden 🙂


    1. Thanks Michelle 🙂 I hate both the packing (cause I have to downsize in a major way) and the unpacking because I have no idea where I want to have the things and because I can’t do much myself due to my disabilities.
