Tutorial: Slider Box Treat Holder

| crafting, Halloween, Treat Box

Hello Friends!

Today I have a project share and tutorial for you. I am in full swing with Halloween goodies and today’s project is quick and easy.


These little boxes fit bite sized candy bars or small candies or you can package small candies into clear plastic bags and they will fit right in the box also.


These boxes come together so quickly and don’t use much designer paper at all.


The size of the box is 3 1/4 long by 1 1/2 inch high.

Here is the tutorial so you can whip some up:

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Friends,

Today’s project share is a Twist Pop Up Panel Card and tutorial. These cards are all the rage right now and with this tutorial you can make one too!

The first card share I have is a Twist Pop Up Panel Card I made with Anna Griffin designer paper.


I love this paper! It is gorgeous.



The second card I made was Halloween themed.


I also used some Anna Griffin Paper on this card as well as some of the embellishments.


I stickled up the spiders and the spider web on the inside and they are so sparkly & shimmery.


I also added a stamped sentiment on the inside but there is still space for a message.

Here is the tutorial so you can make this card yourself:

I hope you enjoyed my project & that you will try the tutorial.

Thanks so much for stopping by!



Craft Your Passion Design Team Project: Have a Bee-utiful Day!

| card making, craft your passion, Design Team, greeting cards

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project share is my design team project for Craft Your Passion. Our sponsor for this challenge was Imagine That/Digis by Kris and the image I used was Bee Girl.


I love, love, love how this card came out! Did I tell you I loved it? Lol. Okay, but really it is so cute! 


The paper I used was Pebbles: Garden Party. I purchased it at Tuesday Morning for $6.99. What a steal. It is a Medium Weight 12 x 12 paper pack.


I colored up my image with my Spectrum Noirs and I add shimmer to the wings with Wink of Stella and Stickles. 

I also used my jelly pens to give the center of the Sunflower and Bee outfit a tiny but of sparkle and dimension. 

Lastly, I added a gingham bow and some enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my project!




Merci Beaucoup Shaker Card

| Merci Beaucoup, Shaker Card, Taste of Summer, Thank you card

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is a shaker card! I love shakers and all the glitter, sequins, seed beads and all the other embellies you can put in them. 


The paper I used is CTMH Taste of Summer Paper and the stamp is CTMH also. The sequins I used are from Craft Medley and I got them on Blitsy. 


I created this shaker card without a foam sheet or  double sided foam tape. For this shaker all I used were die cuts that I glued together. It came out so cute!


I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!



Happy Father’s Day Tool Box Card

| Box Card, Father's Day, SVG Cuts

Hi Everyone,

I started working on Father’s Day cards and love this little box card that is a tool box from SVGCuts. 


I used my Anna Griffin Minc to silver foil the tools and I think they came out so cute. 

I have even decided to personalize this little card by adding a name to the top of the tool box. I won’t add the personalized tool box here because it is still a surprise! 

On the back is a space for a message and I add a tiny Handmade stamp. 

Both stamps I used are from CTMH. 

Do you want a little tool box card? I am still taking orders until the end of this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Explosion Box

| congratulations, explosion box, greeting card, thank you

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is an explosion box. I know, you probably already know how much I love explosion boxes! 

I think they are so fun and such a great way to say Happy Birthday Day, Congratulations or in this case thank someone for their service.


There are just so many places to add pictures, thoughts of fun or inspirational memories and add special touches for the special person you give it to.

The paper I used was the Jackson paper pack from CTMH. It is such great paper and went great with my little easel in the center.



I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

 I made a paper bag card and it is 4 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches. There is a ton of room inside for goodies and a sentiment.

Mini Album Monday: Exploding Envelope

| exploding envelope, Graphic 45, Heart Broken Designs, reverse mini album

Hi Everyone!

Today’s Mini Album Monday is an Exploding Envelope or Reverse Mini Album! The inspiration for this project was a challenge that Ana over at Lace Boutique 1 on YouTube is doing. 


This Exploding Envelope/Reverse Mini Album is so cute. I love how the pages are not attached like in a regular mini album and there is so much room! I am sure I will stuff it even more once I start adding pictures and journaling!


The paper I used was the Couture Collection from Graphic 45 and it is just gorgeous. The size is 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 and there are 5 tags and two envelopes.


You can see my video response here along with the 2nd Exploding Envelope I created that was 10×13!

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Cards with La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit

| CTMH, greeting card, La Vie En Rose, mother's day, Z-card

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project share are two Mother’s Day cards that I created with the La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit. The stamp I used was My Mother.

I really love this scrabooking kit. The paper is gorgeous and very versatile plus it comes with a bunch of goodies.

My first card is a Z card and is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches when closed and a full 15 inches when open. 

I used the “Mum” my Mother Stamp but there is also a “Mom” stamp as well. I added some La Vie En Rose Flair on the front as well as a little black with gold ribbon. 


The side of the card shows how dimensional it is and because it folds up so nicely and flat it is easy to mail. 
I added a stamped message on the inside but there is additional space on the inside for a special message or even to add a picture. 



The second card I created is an A2 size card (4 in x 5 1/2). 

This time on the front I created a bit of interest by using the designer paper in a different way by matting each strip. I also added the little gold hearts that are so cute.



I left the inside blank on this card so there is lots of room for a special message. 

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!
