A box for any occasion.

Card boxes are  different and make you think outside the box ;)
They are very popular these days popping up on many different sites & blogs. They are a lot of fun to make but they do take a little more time than a regular card. After making my first Mother's Day card I've received many requests for similar cards. 

I could barely keep up with the Mother's Day card request so now I've stocked some Father's Day cards ahead so it won't be such a rush. 

Here are a few I've made & recent orders I've had. 
Card for a baby shower for a special young lady! <3

Golf theme birthday card. 

Most recently I was asked to make an anniversary card. I love the way it turned out. These small roses are so much fun to make! I think you'll be seeing more of these!

If you have the chance make a few of these, they are a lot of fun & I'm sure the recipient will enjoy it too! 

Happy Scrapping!

Take me away!

Come & take flight with this beautiful paper collection, balloon ride. How I love the coral in this pack. I wasn't that fond of it when I first saw it in the idea book but once I received the collection I could not put it down!  As part of the kit I put together this month, I included a memory showcase. What a great idea for a Mother's day gift!  
This month I shared instructions on making quick ribbon and fabric flowers using gl├╝bers. 
This is a picture of the back of my memory showcase. 
 It is nice to create your own embellishments to match the colors you're working with. 

Something else I wanted to showcase this month is the sunburst technique. It's been popping up on many different sites & seemed so complicated to do. I thought I would give it a try.  I couldn't believe how easy it was, really ?! That's it?!  

There are many video tutorials available on YouTube that will help you every step of the way. Go ahead, give it a try!

As a background for my chipboard on this card,  I used one of the cards from the balloon ride picture my life collection. You can have a card done in 2 minutes!
This was also a quick one using the rest of my coral paper. 

The memory showcase was fun to put together. A challenge to keep pictures at a minimum as well. I think my mom liked it! :)

I have been busy creating some custom card in a box. After showing everyone the Mother's Day card I made using the free to be me collection I was overwhelmed with orders. Mother's Day, Birthday, baby shower or Anniversary, whatever the occasion, giving such a beautiful & detailed card makes everyone feel special!  Stay tuned, pictures to come!

Happy scrapping!

Good things, Small packaging

Crafting makes for a messy room. Cleaning it up just to mess it all up again. When I have a few projects on the go I like to set up a few tables and move along from project to project. This way everything is in hands reach and when you get stuck on a project you can move on to the next and come back to it later.

Easter has come and gone.  I made some little treat boxes using CTMH  Lollydoodle paper. 

The instructions for this box can be found on www. 

These are quick & easy to make & you can personalize them. 

Card boxes have been very popular lately. As Mother's Day is around the corner I though  I would attempt to make one. 

 This is a great way to promote National Scrapbooking month and showcase our current Promotion.

 The Free to be me paper pack is available for $5 with a qualifying purchase of $50. 

Visit. to order. 

Happy Scrapping!!
