King of the Grill!

Hi Everyone, I’m back again with another post today!  Two in one day, that’s a record for me lately : )

Here is a cute 3D bbq that I created for a dear friend who absolutely LOVES to grill.  He has recently moved to a new house and built a new deck.  I would have liked to buy him the “real” thing but unfortunately that was not in the budget LOL!  so I decided to  do the next best thing and create one out of paper and add in some gift cards as a house-warming gift.  I have actually created a similar version of this bbq before.  There are tons of different inspiration for bbq’s out there but I thought I would take some of the ideas and create my own version.


and here it is open with a built-in spot where you can include a little something special : )


Thanks so much for your visit.  I hope to see you again very soon!  Until then, Happy Crafting!!

Lottery Ticket Holder with Free SVG Cut File

Hi Everyone and welcome to the weekend,

Last night I was struggling to make a card for my Father’s birthday and one of his favorite things to do is scratch Lottery Tickets so I decided to make a card that held them!

I started to search to see if I could find a template that I could use and there did not seem to be anything out there so I made one myself.  What do you think?


and here is a look at the inside


Finally I made a custom envelope using my Envelope Punch Board.  If you have never tried one of these you have to.  It takes you longer to find the paper then it does to make the envelope!


If you would like to take the SVG Cut File for yourself you can find it here.  All I ask is you reference that you got it from my blog.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope to see you again very soon!

Have a wonderful weekend,

joann sig
