Skip the Store - Make Your Own Gift Box

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

It's time for some gift box love! 

I love making them especially when a fun die arrives in my mailbox. I made this one after receiving a box of goodies from We R Memory Keepers. The Rectangle Box is so fun especially if you use some colorful patterned paper!

You can also use this box in other ways! I'm using this one for birthday gifting! Just add a small gift or some sweets and you've got the perfect present.

I also used the butterfly die from the Pop Up Box Die. I layered it and added some bling. The birthday sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

Don’t forget you can use the code COKIE to receive 20% off the items I used in this project & on any other We R Memory Keepers or Lifestyle Crafts products when you shop HERE

Bow Ties and Birthdays

Monday, August 4, 2014

This card was made just because I love cute little bow ties!

You can never have enough birthday cards on hand. I whipped up this little one in minutes. I kept the design simple. I think the green adds just the right splash of color too!

I used a Lori Whitlock 3D bow tie cut file and Lifestyle Crafts dies on this one. The birthday sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

I'm linking this one up to the bow tie challenge going on over at Curtain Call. It's a fun one!

Hope you all have a happy week!

A Sweet Kind of Love Bug

Even though I'm hopping on a jet plane tomorrow, I'm showing off some of my favorite products on the blog all week. Be sure to stop by for some crafty fun!

I really love using dies. My fave right now is this heart doily die. You can really get creative with this one and use it on pages, cards, or altered projects. 

I made a fun card using a "love bug" sentiment from SRM Stickers. I also used some bold red Martha Stewards Crafts paper behind it. 

I'm playing along in the Case Study challenge. The muse this week is the wonderful Shari Carroll.

Have a great week!

Camera Shaped Card for my Traveling Buddies

Sunday, August 3, 2014

 I've taken some really fun vacations this summer. I'm even headed to Hawaii in a couple of days. 

I made a couple of camera shaped cards for my traveling buddies - (my mom and Rachel)! I used my Silhouette and a fun cut file from Lori Whitlock. I used pop dots behind the heart and "perfect vacation" sentiment to add some dimension.

I've been wanting to play along in sweet Virginia Lu's View Challenge for a while now. I'm linking this one up for sure!

There's some challenge fun going on in blog land. I'm also linking up at Moxie Fab World and Little Red Wagon too. 

Have a happy week and I will share pics of Hawaii once we get back. It will be my first time there. Can't wait!
