Hello everyone!

I’m participating in a new challenge.  The Merry Monday Christmas Card #90 Challenge.  This weeks challenge is to create a Christmas card and use ribbon or twine.  To visit their blog, participate, read the rules or visit other participating blogs, click on the image below.

This is the card I made.  My inspiration came from two of the cards showcased in the 2013 Holiday catalogue from Stampin’ Up.

  • Kits: Merry Moments Simply Scrappin’ kit; Pop n Place Holiday Gift Tags
  • Ink: Gumball Green
  • Stamp: Wonderful Wreath
  • BigShot/Punches: Expression thinlits; Pretty Print embossing folder; mini punch

  • Adhesive: Tombo Multi Liquid Glue; Glue Dots; SNAIL; Dimensionals


Oh, Happy Day!


Boutiques Boxes

Another little creation I made over the weekend.

Good morning 🙂

I have the Boutique Boxes Designer Printed Kit.  It comes with 8 little boxes — perfectly sized for gift cards.  Don’t you just love little boxes??  It’s easier if I just include the picture:

So this is the kit and it’s less than $10!  Crazy right?  It not only includes the adorable little boxes (8 of them! I mentioned that, right? lol) it also includes little note cards and a sheet of diecut shapes!  Now my personality is more of the: Do the kit exactly as outlined and don’t deviate from the instructions no matter what!  But… I’m 40 now *Gasp!* (I wrote that fast so I didn’t think about it for too long) and following the rules doesn’t have the same appeal anymore — midlife crisis?  or maybe I’m finally loosening up?  I’m getting off topic here..  Focus, fooocccus!

Ok, so I had the corners from my explosion box and decided to “wrap” one corner of the box, I added a butterfly using the butterfly punch (no kidding!)  Decorative label punch for the label and overlay.

And then I got out my Fancy Friends Kit.. and here it is (cute, “eh!”?):

I stamped the overlay using the ink spots (daffodil delight & old olive) that come with the kit (Fancy Friends, not Boutique Boxes) and I used the little flowers and the bling — gotta have bling!  The stamps come from a limited edition Sale-A-Bration stamp set called, Bloomin’ Marvelous.

Which reminds me.. Sale-A-Bration is ending on the 22nd!! less than 2 weeks until it’s over for another year.  Get your orders in soon so you can benefit from free stuff!!  That’s FREE stuff people.. FREE — Hmm.. have I mentioned you get FREE STUFF when you order before the 22nd (and spend at least $60) — still FREE stuff! OK — I’m hopping off my soap-box!

Have a super week!
