A place to share my love of paper crafting and creativity. Self-expression makes each of us unique, which is our contribution to each other. Welcome, and share your own creativity and self-expression with me, too!
Mary Fish inspired this little creation. I found this darling little tree at Michael's and knew immediately that it was perfect for these little boxes! The only thing I've changed from Mary's boxes is my background paper isn't black, it's left over scraps of Certainly Celery. I also used my 1/16" punch on the top flaps and threaded embroidery floss through the flaps to create the hangers. These little babies are filled with holiday jelly beans! These were great for using up scraps! I've never been much of a Barely Banana user, so I used that and Pretty in Pink for the boxes. The chicks are Summer Sun and their beaks are Tangerine Tango. Thanks Mary Fish! You always inspire me! Her wonderful tutorial for these little darlings can be found here: http://www.stampinpretty.com/petal-card-box-video.html
I'll be working on my daughter's birthday cards and Easter cards this weekend, so come back for my weekend posts. Keep on creating!
Pedaling Past is a stamp set that was in last year's Summer Mini. I thought I'd pull it out at least one more time before the new Catalog items were available to customers! I combined the use of the corner punch scallops, hodgepodge hardware, the dotted embossing folder combined with the latest in colors of Concord Crush and Pear Pizazz. The paper is designer series paper, along with coordinating twill tape ribbon. I also just love our new pearls! I keep having to get more of them because I use them on everything these days! This is an easy sketch to re-create using 3 printed papers, 2 colors, and 1 solid paper. Easy! Have fun!
