Good Morning!  I just love these wonderful gift boxes that I found on Kirsteen Gill's website here:  I love Kirsteen's work and follow her website because I love her sense of design.  I hope I'm that for YOU!  These little gems are a cinch with Stampin' Up's Simply Scored Tool and Diagonal Plate:

These can be purchased by clicking the Shop 24/7 button on the right of this post!
The small boxes are 2 inches square and can hold money, jewelry, treats, charms and other small wonders!  They are a great gift box or a gift themselves.  I've used the Summer Smooches paper with Island Indigo and Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The ruffled ribbon in Island Indigo and Seam Binding in Baja Breeze are a sweet and simple embellishment. Theses boxes come together quickly and look great.  Next, I'm making a version that is half as tall so watch for that post! Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

I promised a post with Summer Smooches, and I had a moment to make a quick 'sorry I'm late' card for a dear friend.  I'm excited to make a fun 3D box with the design paper from this set!  Below is the card I made for Jane.  I used the stamp set and colored the stamp with markers and stamped onto watercolor paper.  The inside is a cute little poem I found online...

"Your birthday's passed, and I'm too late,

So sorry …. I forgot the date.

So here's a card, I've sent to say,

I hope you had an awesome day!"

The printed paper is from Everyday Enchantment, as is the brad.  The 'banner' was made by using the corner of the Pendant Punch.  All products are from Stampin' UP!  and can be ordered online right now by clicking on the 24/7 on the right of my blog.
The colors used here are Calypso Coral, Lucky Limade and Pool Party.  They are 3 of the 5 new in-colors for 2011-2012.

Can't wait to show you the 3D box I have planned for these sunny papers:

Easter Fun!

Oh, where does the time go between these posts!  Just can't seem to get things posted fast enough!  I've been having a wonderful time with the new items from the Sale-a-bration promotion and the Occasions Mini  catalog.  Below is my latest case from those delightfully talented ladies over at

I love this paper called Twitterpated from the Occasions Mini!  So fresh, cheery and full of Springtime!  I stamped the image from the Everybunny set on Whisper White cardstock with Stazon Black ink.  I always using my heating tool when I'm going to use an aquapainter or blender pens, so that I'm sure the stamped image won't smear or smudge.  I used Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Pear Pizazz to color the image.  Using a touch of either Baja Breeze or Sahara Sand around the bunny really makes the image pop!  It's hard to see but I used a distressing tool on the edges of the white image panel.  This came together quickly and it highlights our beautiful DSP and this darling stamp set!

Now, it's time to make some masculine birthday cards for my daughter's boyfriends.  I also can't wait to use the NEW Summer Smooches paper and stamp set.  So fun and bright!  It's only available until April 30th so order now!  What will you make with your Summer Smooches order?  I'll post my soon......
