Thank you notes and card box

Here are the long awaited thank you notes and card box that I mentioned quite a while. This uses the elemental paper pack which I have mentioned I love! The my creations box comes white so you can embelish it anyway you want. The strip on the edge of the b&t is so nice. Notice it down the side of the card? The box with 8 thank you cards are going to go into a basket for a charity auction along with some other things I'm working on.

Cherish the Day

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stamp set. I think it is so versatile. I haven't used it for a layout yet (but I will). I have a couple of cards that I have made below. You can purchase this stamp set for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 of CTMH product you can get it for only $5! But hurry because this set is only available until November 30, 2011.

This one uses elemental....did I tell you it's one of my favorites? I think it will be great for male or female birthdays. Do you like that Make a Wish strip down the left side? It's from the top of the elemental paper. Just a thin strip that makes the paper even more versatile.

This one uses Bella, which is now retired, along with a retired stamp set. There are many other papers and complimentary stamp sets (or die cuts) you could use to recreate this card.

Countdown to Christmas

You have a little time to get this ready since it only counts down the last 9 days. I can't believe how easy this was. Got to love the cricut but you could do this with any appropriate sized box.

This uses the Countdown Stamp Set



Those are mini reeses peanut butter cups. Cut 1.25" in circles in red and green and 1" circles in white. Stamp on the white. Glue and put in box. Can't get any easier than that! And how cute!

Some Winter Fun

Guess what is inside this snowman....a hershey bar. Isn't he cute. The face and buttons are made using the All Decked Out Stamp Set.

Cut the white cardstock to 5.5 x 6"
Score along the 5.5" side at 1.25, 1.5, 3.75 and 4
Fold the scores
Stamp on the cardstock as desired
Fold and glue back.
Glue bottom and crimp
Add ribbon
Insert candy bar
Add hat

Take an infant sock
Cut off the toe part
Cut strips down to about the heel
Cut one strip off and tie it around the other strips

What great gifts for co-workers, friends and teachers.

Finally.....Some New Layouts

Sorry for the delay in getting some layouts posted. Here are some I have done with old pictures of my son when he was a baby....he's 17 now!

These first layouts use Elemental....probably my favorite of the new paper packs. Perfect for many things. You will see cards made with this paper soon.

These layouts use Believe. I really like the younger Christmas paper with Santas and true red and green.
