Cheep Talk Note Card


This is an old stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Cheep Talk. 

 It is hard to see but the wing was popped with dimensional.  I stamped the image the second time on a piece of pattern scrap paper and cut out the wing.   I can't finish the card without using one of  my many, many, many handmade crochet flowers.

Decorated Foam Board Quilling Wedding Photo Frame


I love to decorate photo frame with just one color.  It is easy yet the result is outstanding, well, at least for me.   

Let me give credit where its belong.  I learned how to do the multiple scrolls from Susan quilling.  Susan created the most elegant quilling. The bell like flowers were inspired from Neli.  And the flower tutorial was from Lin Handmade Greeting Cards.

Green Flourish and Crochet Flowers Note Cards


Today I am sharing two quick cards of the same layout but different color. I have to admit I like both of them very much.

Each card took me less than 10 minutes (not counting the crochet flowers) to make and I just love the result!  The green flourish was from the Cherry Lynn die  that I got from the scrap book convention last year.

ScrapbookSister - two colors

Card Box Tutorial

Hello Bloggers!

I have a few more boxes to share today.  I made four more boxes on Tuesday. I have more free time now since I don't have to go to work for a while.  Yay! to that.  Now you would think it was a lot of boxes for one day.  When you duplicate the same item, it didn't take as much time at all. Plus I had all the embellishment already so each box didn't take much time at all.  I forgot to take a picture of the purple box before  I sold it.  So here are 3 of them.

I have two different ways to make  this box.

Here is the first one:

1 - 11 x 12 sturdy card stock for box

 Note to myself:  water color papers are very sturdy their thickness are up to 140 lb perfect for this project.

1 - 7 5/8 x 11 1/8 for lid

take the 11 x 12 card stock and on the 11 inch size score @ 2 1/2 and 8 1/2

see picture below

turn and score at 4 3/4 and 7 1/4

cut off  where I marked with the  "X" (1 1/4 x 6 inches)  Then fold on all score lines and make 4 cuts where indicated.  You can use die cut for that area but it will be difficult when you decorate the box later so that was why I just cut it straight.  Assemble the box. 
The finished size for this box is 2 1/2" depth x 4 3/4" tall x 6" long.

Here is another way and this was the one that I used.  The box came out very sturdy!

2 - 7 1/2 x 11 card stock for box
1 - 7 5/8 x 11 1/8 card stock for lid

take the 7 1/2 x 11 inches card stock and on the 11 inches size score at 2 1/2 & 8 1/2. see picture below

turn and score at 5 inches
make two cut
 you should have this
glue and assemble the piece and you should have this.  This will be the back of the box.  I added the word adhesive here so you know where to put glue when you join the two pieces together.  see the 4th  picture below

take the other piece and score the same measurement.  Except for this piece you will need to make
 3 cuts off where I marked with the "x".  See diagram picture
you should have this

take this piece and adhere to the other piece.  Apply adhesive where indicated and that is the box.

The lid is the same measurement for both boxes.
Take the 7 5/8 x 11 1/8 and score 2 1/2 all around.  Then make 4 cuts

Assemble the lid and decorate your box. The finished size for this box is 2 1/2" depth x 5" tall x 6" long.  I hope you will give this box a try.  The tutorial looked like lots of work but it is a very easy box to make.

Any question let me know.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Rasberry Tart Boxes


I don't have the foam board photo frame tutorial today.  But I have two boxes to share.  My dear regular blog readers knew I made those flowers even the teeny tiny ones.  I crochet so many flowers that I think I could do it with my eyes close. :)

These pattern papers were from Stampin' Up! I love pattern papers and bought them to use on projects but I just kept on saving them because I thought they were too pretty to cut up.  Silly me!  I was so happy that each box used only one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.

Fancy Flourish Thank You


Sharing a quick card today using Fancy Flourish from Paper Trey Ink.  I really like that stamp set.  I just inked the image, stamped and added a little embellishment and I was done!  Using a butter knife I distressed the edge of the image piece.

I am working  on the foam board photo frame tutorial.  I am hoping to have it post on Monday.

 Thanks for stopping by again!  Have a wonderful weekend.
