Birthday Gift for a friend







I made this birthday gift for a friend. I haven't given it to her yet but I thought it would be safe to post since she hardly ever jumps on the computer and doesn't follow my blog.

I bought the La Creme Stack by DCWV last week at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon. I love the flocking on the paper. I paired it up with some white and black card stock that I already had in my stash. I made a card box with 8 blank cards. (I show 2 examples in the pictures but they are all different.) I am including an altered notebook, beaded pen, book mark, 4 magnets and a paperweight. I also have a box of delicious Choxie chocolates to throw in. I added some paper to the plain white gift bag to jazz it up a bit and will tie it with black ribbon.

What do you think?


Supplies:
La Creme Stack
Misc white and black card stock
Card sentiments are from Close to my Heart For Every Occasion and Spring set
RSVP pen
2 sided tacky tape
micro beads
glass beads for magnets and paper weight
magnets
black ribbon
Just Rite Special Occasion Monogram stamper kit
Stampin' Up basic black ink pad

Berry the Snowman

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
