My friend is having a birthday party and asked if I would make a box to use as a "Thank You" gift for the party guests.  It needs to fit one of those smaller bottles of sparkling apple cider.  
This is the perfect box!
designed by: Sam from

Here are a few samples I made.
These are also the perfect size to put a small bottle of wine!

I bought these 4 oz coffee cups with the lids and wanted to make a box to put them in.
I resized the Tall Gift Box from the Gift Boxes kit from SVGcuts.  
I also cut a window in the front so you can see the cute coffee cup inside.   So cute!

When I think of picnic in the park, I think of eating watermelon, 
so thats how I came up with my swap!
The theme is Picnic in the Park for the SVGCuts ATC Swap #19.
I used their Veggie Garden I kit to get the watermelon.

Here we go....using this months Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' Up!

I used the petite pennants builder punch on the labels that came in the kit to make the bow ties.
I stamped using the gorgeous grunge on the very vanilla bow tie just to give it a little something, all the rest comes in the Paper Pumpkin kit.    I do like the color of the card base.

I wasn't too sure about the paper pumpkin kit with the bags;  I decided to use one for my niece's graduation present.  Can you have too many flowers? 

The stamps didn't really stamp very good on this bag so I had to cover them up with the flowers!  lol
Seems like I'm always needing some thank you cards.  I had this old Stampin' Up! kit from probably 4 years or so ago, and they worked out perfectly.  I got 7 made from the left overs of this kit.

TG Grad Card

Another graduation card, this one for my nephew who is graduating from college.

Sometimes an idea just comes to you and you have to put it in action! hahaha
I used the Glittered Greetings Paper Pumpkin to create this card and just 
added the graduation cap and punched out a few stars in the gold foil paper to match the gold insert for the envelop (somehow I lost the gold glitter paper that came with the kit).    
Then I cut a second card to fit on the inside to make a gift card pouch!
I'm happy the way this one came out.

Saw this youtube from The Crafty Owl and thought I would give it a try.
I think my sister is going to like it!
Now the question is, how much is it going to cost to mail ?

A fan fold birthday card, how fun is that !
The base of the care only took 1 piece of DSP.
A couple of mats and flowers and of course bling, the last page you can see is where you can write a greeting.
 The letters were cut using my Cricut.

Yes I am selling these Christmas bulbs!   
I've decided to charge $20.   
I will take orders if you want a specific color of beads/crystals.  I'm very limited on the frosted color for the bulbs.
Here are some samples:

I also sell my jewelry.  Let me know if you are interested.

These Whirlygig earrings from Jill Wiseman designs are so easy to make, I like how they twist. 
I made these for my friend's daughter for her birthday.  She likes to wear the pair I made her mom, so I thought I would make her her own pair.     Now to make her a card.

Decided to go Native on Janet's Bday card....what do you think?

Here is our March project.   I made the first one like the directions say to but then I decided I didn't like it and changed it up a bit.  The directions have you adding 5 pieces of the fringe, with 5, they ended up being (I think) too long.   
So I changed it and only added 3 pieces of fringe and I'm happy with 3!

This one is cute I think !   Can you tell its pacman?
I think my friend will see it.  Made it for her Birthday.

I also made this Thank you card for someone who bought one of my bracelets.

I just love the water color paper from Stampin' Up!
