Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

I spent most of the day crafting more character treat boxes.  I posted a tutorial for this one that you can see by clicking on the title above.

This box was designed to look like the young Rudolph from the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas show.  I used Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Real Red, and Basic Black card stock along with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and a number of punches.  The Top Note die was used as the base for the box.

Witchy Woman

Well I spent half of the day searching on-line for jobs...yuk.  Got word yesterday morning that one of the places I interviewed at was "moving in a different direction" with the job opening they had.  Such a stressful roller coaster ride this job search thing can be.

Well the other half of the day I spent losing myself in my craft room making up little boxes for Halloween and Christmas.  Today I'm sharing the witch box I made.  I used Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Lovely Lilac card stock along with Old Olive and Lovely Lilac classic ink.  On the face I used the large oval punch and several different sized circle punches.  For the eye lashes I used the large flower from the Boho Blossoms punch.  The face is designed on the Top Note die cut with the Big Shot.  I'm planning a video tutorial for this piece so check back if you are interested in seeing how I made her step by step.

Big Shot Chest of Drawers

Today was back to school for my kids after a week long break.  The kids were very excited to go back which makes it a lot easier for us parents.

Okay Big Shot fans, have I got a box for you.  This one uses the Top Note die and the Matchbook die, plus the flower on top is made with the Daisies Flower #2 die.  It is constructed with four Matchbooks adhered together and a Top Note on top and bottom.  A piece of designer paper wraps around three sides to dress it up.  Four rhinestone brads serve as knobs for the drawers.  This one was made with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry card stock with accents from the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.

This is a favorite of mine, made recently at a workshop (designed by Susan Barron).

Asymmetrical Treat Box

I know it's a bit early for Christmas, but it will be here before you know it.

This asymmetrical treat box was made with Ruby Red card stock and the matching designer paper.  I used the Holiday Best level 1 hostess stamp set.

Kaleidoscope Pocket Card

Last night our family went to the North Georgia State Fair with my mom and her boyfriend.  It was free admission night and ride all the rides for one price.  The kids had a blast running from one ride to the next while the adults ate way too much greasy fair food...ah but it is so good.

This pocket card was made with Kaleidoscope designer paper.  I also used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and a Build-a-brad as an embellishment...I love those.

Photo Bookmark

Received some exciting news last night that my mom is going to be here today for a one-day visit...totally unexpected (she lives a 12 hour drive away).  We are all looking forward to spending the day with her.

Wanted to post this bookmark that I made with supplies from the Simply Scrappin’ “Love Sparkles” kit.  I used the So Saffron textured card stock with one of the patterned papers included in the kit.  The ribbon is 1/2” Crushed Curry and I’m thinking it is a little off for this piece, but it is what I had on hand.  A piece of window sheet protects the picture.

Little Handbag

It was a tough morning around here today.  Both my children had their tongues clipped...ouch!  Fortunately for all of us they are feeling okay now.  Kids amaze me at how pain tolerant they are.

This little handbag idea came from my daughter's eye-glass case that is shaped like a little purse.  I made it using the Rich Razzleberry designer paper and ink.  You can see a demo of it at the link above (just click on the title Little Handbag).  There are two parts to the demo since it took me longer than 10 minutes to complete.

Hope you like it....have a great day!

Lotsa Blossoms Thank You

Spent all morning in the doctor's office with my daughter for her 5-year well check...tons of sick kids there, so now I'm praying we don't get something.

Anyway, wanted to post this thank you card I made for my daughter to send out to her grandparents.  I used the Boho Blossoms stamp set and matching punch which makes it so easy to add cute flower embellishments to anything.

Mini Scrapbook

This mini scrapbook was inspired by the American Girl books being given out with McDonald's happy meals.  It has a tri-fold section in the middle with places for photos on each side, a little booklet section in the front and a pocket in the back to tuck in little mementos.  I used papers from the Simply Scrappin' Love Sparkles kit.

The front of the mini scrapbook all closed up....

Here it is open with the booklet section on the left (inside the front cover) and the tri-fold section in the center....

This is the back view with the pocket shown on the left (inside the back cover)....

Goodie Bag

I made this box in a bag as a goodie bag for my daughter's birthday.  I used a designer paper called Kaleidoscope with Pink Passion and Summer Sun card stock.
