2014 Holiday Tags for Co-workers

Okay, I've been slacking a little on the posting, but I have been creating.  Here are some of the tag sets that I have made for my co-workers.  I will give them this along with a nice bottle of red or white wine.

Which are your favorites?  Wouldn't you like to receive one of these small packages....?

Pretty Box Set

They say imitation is the best form of flattery.  Well, I can tell you my entire project today was based on CASING projects from Pinterest and Youtube.  I will post the links for the original projects at the end of this post.

Anyway, I wanted to create a very "pretty" card set for a friend of mine at work.  I absolutely love how pretty and elegant this turned out.  Since I didn't just want to hand her the cards, I also found a pretty box to present the cards.    

The box has a die cut window sealed with acetate. The die-cut was from the Labels collection set from Stampin Up.  The box fits 4-5 card with envelopes very comfortably.

MFT Weekly Challenge -9/26

Hello All,

Here is this week's challenge sketch from MFT:

And here is my version of the challenge:  
I just received my most recent order from MFT and I purchased the Beautiful Baby stamp set, so I felt the need to use it on this sketch challenge.

 I love the colors and think this will be a card I can create with different stamps for different occasions.

MFT Weekly Challenge - Post #2

Hello All,

I am posting an all SU version of the MFT weekly sketch challenge.  I think the layout is great and conducive to any stamp set/paper stash.  I used the Ghoulish Greetings and Freaky Friends stamp and the Motley Monsters DSP all by SU.

Again, here is the sketch:

And here is my rendition of the sketch using all SU products:

I'm about to SNAP!

I'm about to SNAP!
At least that is what the stamp says!  I really liked this week's MFT challenge layout.

MFT Weekly Challenge

Here is the sketch:

I used MFT Picture This stamp set and all MFT cardstock Fuse Green, Blu Raspberry, & Primative White.  I also used some contraband from Stampin up! like the inks, ribbon and twine. I also found a scrap of pattern paper on my messy desk, that just happened to match, so I used it on this card.  Overall, I think the card came out pretty nice.

Here is my version...

Do Something That Makes You Happy


I'm so excited to show you this picture frame art that I made with my stamping supplies.  I used 1 sheet of Patterned paper (I honestly don't remember the brand, but I think either Studio Calico or Pink Paisley) a few rub ons, and some small punches and glitter paper.  Anyway, I wanted something pretty and inspiring to mount somewhere in my craft room and so I came up with this awesome project.

It was so quick and easy to make and the results were amazing...

Everytime I see it, it makes me smile!

Now and Forever *

Friday!  Yes!

I am off work today to attend my cousin's wedding.  Of course I have to make them a card, but I did not get a chance to do it last night so I had to come up with something quick this morning.  I looked through my stash and thought I would use some of my old Making Memories rub-ons along with an SU punch to make this quick, but very cute wedding card.  Also, since I'm sure the happy couple will be getting many cards with images of brides and grooms, cakes, hearts, etc... I thought I would create one that is less cliché.

Have a great weekend!
