Gift Card plus bonus treat holder

A Gift Card holder plus treat box holding Hershey Kisses inside. I love the Emerald Envy color. I might have to stock up in just this color! Here is a cute little Happy Birthday box that I found from Dawn's stamping thoughts. She has some really cute ideas for boxes and cards.

Where does the time go?

I have a few cards that I have done over the past few days that once I finish one card, I start working on something else. Time gets away from me some days and by the time I sit down to show case them, I have moved on to something else that I need to do. Here are a few cards that I have worked on.

You're The Best

I'm so thrilled about these new colors. Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim. They are becoming 2 of my favorite colors. I think the Emerald Envy is, only because my Birthstone is an Emerald. I also love the Bohemian DSP. It really does coordinate very well together.

Simple Happy Birthday

As Summer Vacation goes on one day at a time, I am keeping busy in my craft room. I really love these colors. A very simple card with a simple Happy Birthday wish. I'm hoping to get even more done while on this lengthy vacation. Next month I'll be working on Christmas Cards for the upcoming Holiday.

Anniversary Round Cake Explosion Box

Hello Stampers! What a wonderful Kreation I have to share with you today! I have seen these awesome looking Explosion boxes with cakes inside. I looked around for a tutorial to be able to make that cute round cake box! But the only one's I could find you either had to pay for it or it was in a language that I just could not get to translate! lol So I decided to just wing it and make one myself with my own dimensions. So here it is!
This turned out beautiful!

Flip Flop #2

I have one more Flip Flop that I did in a different pattern. I could sit and make these all day long, I would probably end up having an entire craft room full of flip flops! (lol)
This cute Flip flop was made with Gumball Green and Watermelon wonder.
I hope you like this Flip Flop!
Until next time!

Summer Time Flip Flops

Look what I have for you today! This is one of the cutest ideas! Summer Time Flip Flops. Where we are it's been summer for quite some time and what a perfect idea for a get together with a "pool" theme and you can turn these into invitations for all your friends.
I have the template for these cute flip flops which also fit right into a standard A2 Envelope. How great is that! I'll put the template up later today, you can click on the link "on a budget" above and it will take you right to purchasing the template.
Until next time!

Last Father's Day Card

Happy Father's Day to all the dads today! This card was made for my husband. His favorite colors are purple and black. Which in fact are my favorite colors as well. I used Stampin Up's Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Wisteria Wonder Chevron ribbon. Now to move on to some more July 4th cards.
Until next time!

Tepee and a Beehive

Hello Stampers!
There is a NEW button up top called "Tutorial Library". When you click on it, it will bring you to a series of videos that you can watch. Here are two projects I tried out. The beehive was a little frustrating at times, and you really need nimble fingers to be able to get in there.

4th of July Fry Box

A late night post to show you a cute 4th of July Box that I was able to put together in about 10 minutes. I know I had a list of things to do, but I just had to shove one more project out.
This was done using the Fry Box Framelit in Whisper White CS, Real Red CS and Brilliant Blue CS.

Pop Up Birthday Card

Once again Dawn at Dawns Stamping Thoughts never ceases to amaze me with her wonderful tutorials! Here is a Birthday Pop up. ( don't mind the fingernail! It does actually lay flat!)The only thing I believe I need to tweak a little is the sliding part. Of course this was my first attempt at it. So I know that I will be doing it again!
I've had to put my crafting on hold for the day and continue again tomorrow! Stay tuned for more great ideas and cards!

4th of July 3 Tier Slider Card

Happy Thursday! We are almost to Friday! Which means the weekend is right around the corner!
It's been a busy week for me but I was able to spend some time in my craft room and continue the projects I had laying around.
This is a Shout out to Dawn's Stamping thoughts for this wonderful tutorial found HERE for this 3 tier slider card!
I will admit that this card took me 2 days. Not for lack of ideas, but for lack of time! Everytime I seemed to have found a few minutes to complete it, I had to run out again. However, I did get it done and it looks pretty good. Now that it's complete, I'm off to my next project - Happy Stamping and Crafting Thursday.

Fry Box Framelit die - Santa Treats

I absolutely love this Framelit die Fry box. I have been waiting for this die to come in the past few days so I could get started making things right away. Those that know me, know that Christmas is my favorite Holiday to make things. So I've started early. I saw this on Pinterest the other day and just like a 5 year old in front of the candy shop, I was excited to get it today!
Here is the first Item I chose to make.

Father's Day Card

Father's day is coming soon so I have started making some cards to hand out.There are plenty that will be handed out this Father's Day! I started looking through Pinterest and of course found one that I would try out. This was a very simple card. Definitely Manly for Father's day. I love how it turned out.

Piano Easel card

A Piano Easel Card - very simple and quick. It's a cute easel card, however you would have to make your own envelope for it. Or give it away the way it sits. I think that this card was meant to just be handed like it is, due to the shelf and the book that are on it.
An easy tutorial which you can find by clicking HERE

Tea Light Gift bag

I am simply loving this idea for a tea light gift bag. I put together gift baskets of treats during the Holidays and I am always looking for something else to put in them. This is a perfect idea to toss a few tea lights inside a "Spa Gift Basket". You can make four of these little bags out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 CS. Simply cut it 4 x 5 1/2 inches. If you want to see the rest of the tutorial click HERE

Christmas Gift Bag

Hi stampers, today I have a Christmas Gift Bag/Treat Bag made with the Gift Bag Punch Board. My special days and Holidays are a little mixed up and where I should be crafting some wonderful Father's day cards, I decided that a Christmas Item here and there wouldn't hurt!
I made this one with a see through window so your treats or gifts inside show through. I love the versatility of the Gift Bag Punch board. There are so many different sizes you can do. Speaking of sizes, this one is 7 x 11 inches.

Gift bag punch board

Stampin Up's Big box of goodies finally arrived. Inside the box was the Gift Bag Punch Board. Something that I have been waiting on. So I took it right out and started punching out Gift Bags.
Here's a simple Large (5 x 12) gift bag that I made within 10 minutes. If you are looking for something last minute and quick this would be the tool to use!
