Last Day of School

Yesterday was my son's last day of preschool and I wanted to make something for him to give to his teachers!

I found this amazing video on YouTube on how to make these boxes. (The video is over a year old, so the punches that she uses are actually available now.) I love how they turned out!

Mother's Day 2010

While following one of my favorite blogs, I came across a really cool card idea to do for my mother for Mother's Day! I got the design for this card from a wonderful lady named Dawn! And HERE is a link to the video on how to make this gorgeous card!

After I took the photo, I added a strip of Whisper White CS to the front Lavender Lace panel in the front with a little handwritten note for my mother!

Summer Mini Catalog is Here!

Hooray for summer! Another Occasions Mini Catalog is up on us and there is a ton of fun stuff inside of it! You can sneak a peek and order directly from me HERE !

Here are a couple of things I made using the Elements of Style stamp set from the Summer Mini!

For this card I used 2 colors that will be retiring at the end of June (see previous post). I used Mellow Moss and Lavender Lace. I used the Whisper White Organza Ribbon to accent the card. I also used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from the Summer Mini on this card as well.

For this box I used the Bigz XL Box #2 die and folded the flaps in and adhered them to the inside of the box with Sticky Strip. I cut very small strips of paper and crumpled them up to put inside of the box to pop the candies out of it instead of them sinking to the bottom! To wrap the candies I used the leftover stamped paper from the front and back of the box.
