Best Wishes


This past summer I was asked to make a card for someone who was either temping or something, and was going to be done working at the place where my husband works.  Or at least I think that was the reason.  Too long ago to remember for sure.  lol

Anyways, I came across this photo in my files and thought I should finally share it with you all.



(inspired by this card by Yana Smakula)




Super pretty and feminine.

A Celebration - Circle Treat Box



Ok, so admittedly I have quite a few photos sitting on my laptop of past projects I've made but haven't shared yet.

Here is one of those projects.





The original idea that I came across for using a large circle to create a box was from Andrea Walford, but I discovered that none of the links were working anymore, so I can't link up to the original instructions.

So I took out my ruler and my treat holder, wrote down the basic scoring measurements, and made up my own instructions to share with you.



Circle Treat Box

  • Cut a 8 1/2" circle out of cardstock
  • Score the circle at 5" and 5 1/2"
  • Turn circle and score at 1 5/8", 2 1/8", 6 3/8", 6 7/8" (Tip: I used a ruler to make sure it was square before I scored these lines)
  • Fold on all score lines using a bone folder to get a nice crisp fold
  • Use your scissors to trim off the pieces (shown in photo below)
  • Adhere sides of box together






Happy creating!  :)

Celebrate Today



If you have followed me for a while, you will know how I love to random stamp to create my own papers.

Here's a pretty color combination for you.  :)





The sentiment is Silver embossed, so it has that nice shimmer to it.

I also used a Pastel Green Twin Shin-Han marker to color the Clear and Bitty Sparkles to match the Flaxen color.




Really a very simple card, but I love the finished look.


Happy creating!  :)

It's A Girl! Shaped Card



I was recently asked to create a girly baby card.

So this is what I made, using this printable template I found on Pinterest.

It ended up being a little odd-sized (at approximately 4 1/2" by 5 1/4"), so I pulled out my envelope punch board and created a special sized envelope for the card.

Turned out pretty sweet.  ♥







Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  Chantilly - retired; White Daisy CS
Stamp:  Wild Wonders 
Ink:  Black
