6 Sided Box

I am not sure who's original idea this was. I got this idea at a swap and just changed it a little bit. It uses the Stampin' Up milk carton die You cut out two of them and then cut one section off both pieces. Then you have to score the one side at the top that is not scored. Then you pretty much add the paper, put it together with sticky strip and add the holes and ribbon.

I used the new set Petite Pairs on the front. The yellow box went to swim lessons today for my daughters swim teacher filled with gummy life savers. The brown box sill is waiting to find a home.

Easy Events Set Sampler

These are from the new set Easy Events in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. It includes 8 different stamps for all kinds of occasions. I took the set and made a card from each stamp. This was a lot of fun to do and now I have 8 mini cards ready to go!

If you are in my stamp clubs and you like surprises you may want to skip this post. We may be making some of these this week in clubs. :) I think the cupcake one is my favorite!

New Mocha Morning Designer Paper

This is the new Designer Paper called Mocha Morning. Not only do I really love Mocha's in the morning, but I really love this new Stampin' Up! paper. When I saw these colors in the catalog I knew I had to have this one! The stamp set is new as well. It is called "The Pursuit of Happiness." Is has four great quotes in it.

Well off to weed the garden and hopefully get back in my craft room this afternoon.

A Crown for the Princess

This is a fun little crown I made using the tab punch and some gold paper. I embossed with gold powder on the gold paper to give it a "Royal" feel. I also did some sponging with Black Stazon ink on the edges to make it look a little more vintage. This was a lot of fun to make and will be even more fun to wear. How do you think I will look wearing this doing the dishes tonight!

Stamps: Vintage Vogue

ps. My new stamps from the NEW STAMPIN UP CATALOG will be here on Thursday. Whoo Hoo0! Now it is time to clean some space in my craft room so I can stamp!

Birthday Party Favors

So when you have little kids you KNOW how important the party favors are! These we did for my daughter's birthday last year. I just found the picture when I was thinking about what to do for this year :) We went down the Target clearance isle where we found these cute plastic cups. We filled them up with some other clearance things we found like bubble necklaces and some candy. Then we just wrapped them in a cellophane bag and made a topper to match. I think they cost about $2.00 a piece. I guess it is all in the packaging because the kids loved them! Every time my daughter goes to her friends house she says they still are still using their cups. Hmmm... guess I better get back to working on this year!

Die cut: Flower Daisy #2 (p 22 in new catalog)

Circle Punches (p 212 new catalog)

Paper: Mambo, Olive, Gray, Real Red

Stamps: Fabulous Phrases (p 163 new catalog)
