Birthday card

Hi, everyone!
Hope you are having an awesome day!  Just thought I would post the birthday card I made last night for my step-daughter.  I used papers from the DCWV Sorbet Stack, a felt coaster from Michael's, Studio G glitter glue and the pearl pen by Viva Decor that I got from Megan at Above Rubies Studio.  Cricut cuts from the new Once Upon a Princess cartridge.

Thanks for looking!!

Here are three favor boxes I made for my DH coworkers for Valentine's Day.  The embellishments were made using aluminum cans and chipboard.  Both were cut using a Bigz Die with the Big Shot machine.  I think they turned out cute.  What do YOU think???

Tie the Knot favor box give-away!

Hi, everyone!
Are you ready for another give-away?  I am having so much fun with these Tie the Knot favor boxes and I know some of  you don't have this cartridge yet.  Sooooooo..............................................................

Good luck!!

Tie the Knot favor box using lots of new techniques from CHA!

Happy Sunday morning, everyone!!!
I finally got the first Tie the Knot favor box complete and photographed.  This one took awhile because I employed some new techniques I came up with and also some I learned at CHA.  This was fun!!  First, I cut the favor box from Tie the Knot at fit to page, which gave me an 11" cut.  Then I inked the edges with Stampin Up Chocolate Chip ink.  Now I moved on to the embellishments.  The key and lock are cut from an aluminum soda can using my Cuttlebug and a Sizzix die.  Once they were cut, I inked them with the new FANTASTIC Viva Decor gold alcohol ink I got from Above Rubies Studio at CHA!  LOVE that ink!!!  Then I moved on to a heart from the new Love Struck cartridge.  I cut it from chipboard and inked it with the Chocolate Chip ink as well.  Then, using a technique I learned from Terri O at CHA, I used the Threadster and Scor-Tape, outlined the heart then filled it with Terri's microbeads.  LOVE the look!!!  Some more charms cut from chipboard from the Lovestruck cartridge and a cute little bird from the new Songbird cartridge round out the dangling charms.  The ribbon is from a new kit I just received from Flowers to Flourishes.  I have five more of these boxes cut out of different print cardstocks and can't wait to figure out some fun embellishments to decorate them with!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!  If you have time, please leave a comment.  I love to hear what you think of my projects!!!

Blessings and hugs!

Tie the Knot favor boxes

Hi, everyone,
Thanks for stopping by.  I have some projects in the works, just no pics ready to show you yet, but I will tell you that I am having a blast making the favor boxes from the new Tie the Knot cartridge!  These adorable boxes go together so fast and require no adhesive!  Can you believe it??  So cute!!  I'm making some up to put Valentine treats in.  I've been busily making some inked and beaded embellishments to go on them and they are really coming along nicely.  Maybe by tomorrow I will have some pics to post for ya.  I had a give-away planned for this week, but with all that is going on around here (health issues), I think I will just wait until next week.  My knees have just not been the same since CHA and I'm really trying to take care of myself so they will get well.

Enjoy the rest of your week-end!!!
