Another Easter card…

easterHere’s another fun card from my friend Rebecca.  Don’t you just love how the basket is over flowing with chicks!  She used the Basket Bunch Bundle and the Stylish Stem Framelits.  She also poked two holes on either side of the sentiment frame and tied two knots in the front.  It’s so super cute!!

Easter is in the air…

egg-straspecialWe have had a huge shift in weather here in Colorado.  Spring, (almost) Summer, and back to Winter again!  While it was “Spring” I was feeling a little Spring fever.  But I was working on wedding goodies.  So I had my friend Rebecca make some Easter cards for you!  Here is the first card!  That bunny is just peeking out of the basket.  So adorable!

This card uses the Basket Bunch Bundle in the Occasions catalog!

Bridesmaid Cards

I’ve kept the cards simple but we can always add butterflies, flowers, whatever you want!thankyou-bridesmaidgold

Wedding ideas…

Here’s another great idea for brides!  Check out this cute project!  bridesmaidbox bridesmaidThis pillow box has a string hanging out of it.  When you pull the string, the message comes out of the box.  This one says, Will you be my matron of honor?  Isn’t that cute!! I agree!

All of my ideas can be customized for the Bride’s personal taste in colors.  I just chose some popular color schemes.

#TBT – Peppermint Patties

lovebox-filledWith Valentine’s Day, right around the corner… Well, I thought I would bring back a great project!  It’s not my original design so I don’t feel comfortable sharing the dimensions… however, I tried to find this box again and can’t find it anywhere.  Just know, it’s not mine.  Another demonstrator thought this baby up.

Here’s what you will need:

1 – 5″ x 5″ cardstock (Sweet Sugarplum used here)
1 – 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ Strip (if you do the hearts, I cut mine 1 x 8 1/2 – Sweet Sugarplum used here)
10 – Scallop Circle punches (Rich Razzleberry used here)
6 – 1 3/8″ Circle Punches (Sweet Sugarplum used here)
6 – 1 1/4″ Circle Punches (Whisper White used here)

loveboxI did something completely different with this box.  I used the Window Box Thinlets to cut-out the shapes in each of the side panels and the Love Notes Thinlets to cut hearts out for the handle!  Super cute!!

So, now what?  Well, let’s make a box.  Take your 5 x 5 card stock and score on all 4 sides at 1 1/2″.  (see the example below – dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines.) So, put one of the 5 x 5 sides along the top, score at 1 1/2″, turn 90 degrees, score at 1 1/2″, turn 90 degrees, score at 1 1/2″, turn 90 degrees and score at 1 1/2″

Cut on the 4 score lines as shown.  The run from the edge of the paper to the 1 1/2″ score line.  You will notice that there are two cuts at the top of the paper and two cuts at the bottom of the paper.  The other 4 score lines are not cut.  They are only scored.

Now, fold up the sides.  The flaps should both fold into either side of the box. (where the cut lines are) I stapled the sides and the handle on at the same time.  Using only 1 staple right in the middle to secure the box together. You will cover the staple with a scallop set (mine is the Kiss and the lips).

What do you think?  Pretty simple, right.  Quick and easy! Makes a great gift for a co-worker, employee or anyone, really!  If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comment section!
