Cookies Gift Box


These boxes are so fun!
The Gingerbread boy and girl are Miss Kate Cuttables from the Silhouette library. The boxes with Sentiments are Jamie Lane Designs also from the Silhouette library. I used a dot embossing folder for the covers instead of pattern papers. Also, I used a new glue which I do not like for these projects. Since I tend to smear glue everywhere, even though the bottle says it dries clear, it still made a mess on the gingerbread children. Oh well, I think the person receiving these will be more excited about the cookies in the box than notice the imperfections on my designs. :) Also used on the boxes were Stampin' Up stitched circle die, and scallop circle dies for the Cookies for You print and cuts. Again, not perfect. My printer is giving me printing troubles, so I had to improvise a little.


Have a Great first week of December.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy to make.

Eskimo Kisses


Hi, everyone!
Today I have a fun little 3D project to share with you.
This is actually a box with a decorated die-cut paper-pieced front. 
The box can be opened and filled with goodies.
This cut came from the Silhouette library.


Thanks for visiting with me today. Can you believe tomorrow is December 1st?! Wha-what?

Many Cards, One Kit #16

Celebrate Autumn Collection Kit, Card #16


This month I will be showing several cards all made with the Echo Park, Celebrate Autumn 12x12 Collection kit. I was inspired by Mary @ Cardz TV and from several other YouTube channels showing ways to use up your papers while making many, many cards & tags. 

I really needed this boost in my Mojo.  All of the cards are super simple. Only a couple of them actually have stamping done on them. Instead I let the papers and stickers do most of the talking.

I hope you'll enjoy this series.

If it's going to be this Cold, It should go ahead and just Snow then

First of all, Happy Birthday to our 2 four-legged girls,
Mary Ann & Ginger! 6 years old today!
(Yes, their names are from Gilligan's Island.)


Second, it's COLD!
We don't have central Heat and Air.... yet... so we are using heaters.
It helps. We are very grateful for them, but it's still COLD!
I mean, when you get up to go let the dog's out in the morning,
and you can see your breath because we don't have portable heaters in every room,
that's just crazy. hahahaha
No worries, we are working on some solutions.

But, that leads me to the THIRD thing which has 3 points:
1) I deal much better with heat than I do bitter cold even though we did live in Alaska 3 different times.
AND
2) I think the bears have the right idea, sleep through the winter and just wake back up when it's warmer outside.
AND
3) I can see why older people move to Florida.  I'm not that old. Only 54, but I get so stiff in the cold.

Okay, enough whining about that.... 


All day I've had the Winter Wonderland song stuck in my head. I was even singing it out loud for a little while. LOL

I love box cards.

P.S. See that mirror with the "J" on it? That was my Mama's. Her name was Judy. I miss my Mama.

Ornament Fun Fold Card



Card elements from Lori Whitlock's library; however, I did not use her card base. I find it much easier to fold back the cover of an A2 card and use the elements on my card that way. 6x6 paper pad, A Perfect Christmas and Stampin' Up set, Oh What Fun along with Stampin' Up scallop and oval dies for sentiment. On the ornament, I used white shimmer paper. Doesn't look like the photo picked that up, but it's really pretty and subtle in person. This card was made especially for PINspirational Challenge Blog.

30 Treat Boxes for the Kids

Hi, everyone!
I'll be posting a Fall card in about 30 minutes, but until then I wanted to share with you the 30 boxes I made for a group kids. This particular class that one of our daughters teach Art to in elementary school, saw some popcorn boxes I had made and loved them. They continued to bring them up to Kati (their Art teacher) asking if her Mama (me) would make them something. Well, how can you turn down these adorable children?

I didn't make the popcorn boxes though, I made little boxes instead.
I used Miss Kate Cuttables pattern papers, and lots of cuts from Cricut's Create a Critter and some print and cut images from the Silhouette library. Kati helped me make 1/2 of them, so it went by much quicker than me doing it by myself.

Here is a picture of some of the class that received them. They were suppose to hide their faces with the boxes, but some needed me to help them hide those adorable faces (hence all the white circles).

This was a fun project that was greatly received by the little darlings.

Little things mean a lot.
Their smiling faces made my day.


Thanks for visiting.
Have a blessed day.
