I saw these Lemonheads in all the Easter Candy now found in stores and thought "I can do something cute with that".  So here is what I did. I covered the box in white and then made it into a bunny:

I was hired to make some birthday party invites.  The theme was Barbie & Smores.  I took some "Barbie" color papers, some die cuts and this is what I came up with.  I think they turned out super cute and the customer was thrilled!

B-Day Gift

Washi Tape is a huge thing right now and I found this idea on Pinterest which I thought would make an awesome gift! It holds lots of rolls of tape and will look super cute on my friend's scrap desk! I love how useful it is too as you decide which tape will be added to your project.   I probably will be making these for more gifts and will have to make one for myself!  Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday...

A friend of mine will be celebrating a birthday this month too so I made this card which matches the gift.  Closer to her birthday I will post the gift I made as I don't want to be too much of a spoiler......ya you know who you are!  Or it could be that I want to keep it!!

Die of the Month:
Okay, thought this die would have been perfect last month but hey we get what is sent!  So I took this die and made it into cards that I can use now!  This die will be great on V-day cards next year but love that it's still usable now!!

At it again with covering mailboxes ~ glad I found these a few years ago when I first covered them and continue to find in stores as they are perfect gifts for Teachers!  Just cover and embellish and then fill with goodies!  Always a big hit!


Made a bunch of Treat Tubes for co-workers ~ used a little box for a stand and added a tag with a donut card ~ what could be better??

Cute Card!

I love the new 2x2 glasses die cut and had to use it with a stamp set I have.  Thought they worked well together!

Valentine Frame

Stepping outside the page ~ I took an acrylic frame and jazzed it up.  Adding embellishments to the outside of the frame really adds a nice touch!

I made up this card and treat holder for Valentine's Day to give my husband.  The box treat holder is actually a storage container I had picked up and could be used for paper clips, elastics, etc for the office but of course I stepped outside the box and put chocolate in it!! He can keep it on his desk at work. Yum!!

Try using nesting dies for pictures ~ makes a unique focal point on layouts.  Check out this layout where I used Nesting Hexagons for the picture and mat.
