Altered Cigar Box

I am up on the My Mind's Eye Blog today with this altered cigar box.  Although the Fancy That paper is a Wedding themed collection, you wouldn't know it here.


After painting the box, I put my Cricut to use, tucked in some vellum leaves and part of a glassine bag and voila done.
Now it will hold some gourmet chocolates and makes a perfect thank you gift.  

For more information and detail shots, please see the My Mind's Eye Blog.

My Mind's Eye Blog.

I was up on the MME Blog today.  I used the Hello World collection to create a couple of cards that I thought would also work well for some Graduation cards.


Of course I used my 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives to adhere the die cut jets.

You were meant to shine

I am up on the Unity Blog today with this fun Angie Girl (Bernadette Girl).  I have paired her up with some Bella Rouge by Pink Paislee.  I love paper piecing and my favorite is here pants, I want a pair :)


I cut the sentiment flag apart for more interest and of course have mounted the image using some 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbooking Adhesives.

Girl Themed Birthday Cards

I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog, this time with girl themed cards, perfect for the girls in my class.

I love the colors in this collection by Pink Paislee and these adorable Meow Purr Baa Unity Stamps!




I love using the Foam Squares to add lots of dimension on my CAS cards.

Hello Gorgeous

I don't play just for fun often anymore, but I sense that is going to change... a renewed sense of energy and well being (if you are a friend on Facebook you will have seen my post regarding my Matcha tea, etc)

Anyhow I couldn't wait to play with this 365 collection by Chickaniddy Crafts, it is just, well... gorgeous.


I just got the Paper Smooches Shoes die and it is just so fun.  Finally, of course a Silhouette Die cut.

Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop!  I hope that you are leaving comments!


For my card today I have been dying to use this little cutie - Hippo Birthday -  and I desperately need more birthday cards for the students in my class.  The paper is from Pink Paislee and of course everything is adhered using my Scrapbook Adhesives.

For added dimension, I mounted the head on some foam squares and then fussy cut the little flower and added it.  So quick and easy, but perfect for a little girl in my class.

Now be sure to check out the website for the new releases and the sale!
