Present Treat Box

This cute little bag was also for our girls trip.  For more info on this go to this blog post here.  Or just scroll back a few posts.

This is from the Silhouette store and so super easy to make, remember I had to do easy because some of my girls (who shall remain nameless) are not as crafty as others.
I added foam dots to the light pink bow piece for added dimension.

Birthday Cake Card

Okay here is the 3rd card from the girls trip cards.  For more info on this go to this blog post and this one, or just scroll back.

This is such a fun card because it is simple to make and a box card.  The sentiment even came with the file so it was a print and cut.

Thanks Card and Treat Box


I was asked to be a guest designer over at Die Cuttin Divas and of course I said YES!   The theme is thanks or a turkey...well I had to do both. 
The first is a box card from Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette store.  I love these box cards they are easy to make and have a bit of a wow factor.  For my second project I made a treat box, it is also from the Silhouette store.
So make sure to head over to Die Cuttin Divas to check out all the cuteness!!

Birthday Card

My 4 daughters and 2 daughters in law are going on a girls weekend this next week.  You know the drill pedicures, nice dinner, movie, hiking, swimming, biking, escape room (we love these and are very good at it, we solve them every time, hope I didn't just jinx us!), games, movies and NO KIDS.  I am a little sad that my littles won't be there but their moms ARE NOT!!!

So one of the things we always do when we get together is make cards and things so I will be posting a few of the things that I made for the girls to make over the next week or so.  I did a birthday theme because you can never have enough birthday cards!

This is a super simple card to make, I went simple because I have a wide range of talents and abilities in these girls.   This is from the Silhouette store and super quick and easy to make but still a fun card.

Dog Mini Album



Sorry I haven't been posting as much, life has just been so crazy lately.  I actually made this little mini album awhile ago and am just now getting around to posting it.  I made this for my Mom for her birthday.  She has two little dogs that I swear she loves more than her kids...just saying.  They get away with so much more than we did as kids.  Anyway I hope she likes it.

I used the Echo Park paper Bark (I love this paper, it is so cute!).  The album measures 4.75" by 6.25" and the spine is 1.75".  There are 5 pages in this alum some have pockets on the front and back with a pull out tag from the top, others have a side pull out.  The little cards in the pockets were made using the cut a parts sheet of paper (that is what is on the front cover also).  The top pull out tags are from Ranger and the ones in the front were made with the tag topper punch from Stampin Up.  I got the inspiration for this from Ginger at My Sisters Scrapper.







This is the inside cover and first page



These are the tags from the top of the book they are all the same size just different papers




This is the side pull out so one page has a tag in the top and one is a side pull out

Tall Haunted House Box

 Can you believe it is October??!!!  I am so far behind on everything!  Just when you think you might catch up something else is thrown at you...LIFE.
Anyway this fun little Haunted House Box is new from SVG Cutting Files and will be in the store on Friday.  I am loving this box it is so cute and really simple to put together.  For this one I embossed the box base with a brick folder and the shingles with a spider and spider web folder.  The ghost and tag are dies.  If you go the the last picture you can see the box done just plain, it is still really cute just not all the add ons.

Fall Mini Album

Hi friends, so sorry I haven't been around much lately.  I have been with family.  The past few weeks I have been going out of state at least once a week to see my dad who was not doing well.  He passed away a couple of weeks ago.  I miss him but he is no longer in pain so that is a blessing.

Anyway on to something lighter and fun!  I am really loving mini albums for some reason...I don't know why...I don't put photos in them.  I know I am a bit crazy.
This album is 5.5" x 6.5" and the spine is 2.5".  The paper is Fall is in the Air by Echo Park.
Ginger over at My Sisters Scrapper was my inspiration for this.





The tags were made with the cut a parts
