Out of the box

These cute little boxes were my April class. I wish I could say that I designed this myself but I found the original instructions here

I offered the boxes in three paper designs.

Sillouette (Black, White Daisy, Colonial White, Bamboo and Tulip)
And here is the inside of the box. It includes 6 standard A2 size cards, four 3"x3" cards and four tags along with a noteboox, pen and pocket for a book of stamps.


Here it is using Bella (Hollyhock, Olive, Smokey Plum, Cmee Brule)
And finally this is Magic Moments (Chocolate, Hollyhock, Corn Flower Blue, Sweet Leaf). Each of these uses the same layouts but it was interesting to see how different they turned out by just changing the papers.

Spring Has ...Win a free stamp set!

This is something I made for the April swap using our April Stamp of The Month, Flower Pot.




I love doing 3-D projects and this was a really fun one. The template came from Lauren Meader's My Time Made Easy site. If you haven't checked out Lauren's site you are missing out. I love her ideas and templates. The best part is that she offers all of her templates as .GSV files that I can cut on my cricut using my Sure Cuts Alot software. How awesome is that?? I would never take on making 10 of these if I had to cut them all by hand.


What is Sure Cuts Alot you might ask. Well I if you own a cricut is is a MUST have tool. I wrote a post about it on my old blog. If you want to read that post click here. If you want to learn more or want to purchase Sure Cuts Alot Click on my link to the left.



Here are some close up shots of the Wheel Barrow and one of all of them lined up for the swap.







I used the Veranda paper line from CTMH. The wheel barrow base is Cocoa cardstock, with Olive accents. I used the Flower Pot SOTM set and various CTMH colors for the flowers.

Oh Baby!

This is a page and a card I made for my friend Echo's baby shower.






I used the Caboodle paper line from CTMH along with the Love You Forever stamp set. That set is one of my favorites because I remember reading the book Love You Forever by Robert Munsch to my daughter when she was little. I gave the book to Echo as a part of my gift in hope that she can treasure some of the same memories of reading it to her little boy. The Silouettes are done using the Childhood Portraits stamp set, another of my favorites.
