Snow White Birthday Party

Today I have another dress box, this one is for a cute little five year olds birthday party.  The party girl won't see them until party day but her mother picked them up yesterday and loved them.  I was inspired by several versions on Pinterest.

This is her party invitation.

The box part holds a small treat, I put 8-9 candy kisses in the  wedding version I showed you yesterday.
I had several questions on what I charge for these, the price depends on the amount of detail you want, the number you want, and the availability of your color choice in 12x12 cardstock.  Since SU stopped selling single packs of 12x12 it is difficult to get the exact color as my samples sometimes.  If you are interested in these, it is a good idea to book early since I stay booked months in advance.  You can email me at if you have questions.

Wedding Favors

I have got a lot accomplished already this week....I made 45 of these little dress boxes for a wedding shower, got all my classes designed and prepped for the rest of the month, started on favors for  a Christmas wedding, and designed the favors for a princess birthday party!

Here are 45 dress boxes waiting to be packed up.

This is the design for the Christmas wedding I am working on.  Isn't that lace pretty!  This is the first one I have done  with fabric added but the bride wanted to try it and she loved it, I wish I could have got a better photo.  I will show you the Princess Party after my customer sees it today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well Wishes

Don't you just love the English Garden DSP. I would never think to put Soft Suede and night of Navy together but I love it in this paper.  I did "stamp off'" to get a more muted color to match the DSP.  The butterfly is stamped twice and layered, once fully inked and the other stamped off.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Fall

Today I have a Fall card using some retired stamps and DSP,  not even sure the names of them but love this image.  Sometimes when I have a lot on my mind, I  love to just sit and color and yesterday was that kind of day.  Thanks for stopping by!

Today I have another Fall card, I love this Corrugated Paper.  I also added Woodgrain texture to the Tangerine Tango leaf but it doesn't show up well in the photograph.  This is one of the cards we will make in class on Monday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Petals

My friend, Julie, saw a card similar to this on a Facebook group and asked if  I would make her one.  I didn't have the exact stamps but she was ok with that.  I really like how it turned out and so did she.  Thanks for stopping by.

Watercolor Wings

I have had this stamp set, Watercolor Wings, for a while but it got pushed to the back of the shelf and I just noticed it yesterday.  I love how it turned out, I had this retired Retro Fresh DSP laid out for something else so I used it on this as well.  I also used another set, Dotty Angles, for the first time.  Thanks for stopping by!

The moment I stepped out the door this morning I felt Fall in the air and this made me HAPPY!  I love Fall although it makes me very homesick for the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.  So, I made a Fall card and  love how it turned out.  I used Vintage Leaves stamp set along with Into the Woods DSP.  Thanks for stopping by!

Peace on Earth

Today I have a couple of Christmas cards to share, they were hard to photograph because of the metallic paper but I really like how they look in real life.  The Real Red Foil paper is in the Holiday catalog but the blue is some I found in my stash and am not sure where it came from.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Fall

I am gearing up for Fall craft show time, I just got an email today that I got into a new one. I have tried the past couple years without success so I am excited but that means I had better get busy so I have enough prepared for this new one. I used the Baker's box die for this treat along with some of the Into the woods DSP.  Thanks for stopping by!
