Easel Box w/Mini for Mom

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share with you all the project that I made for my Mom.  It's a box that holds a mini with an easel on top. I was inspired to make this from watching Molly and Yuli on YouTube.  Their projects are gorgeous so please check them out.

This is a lengthy video because this one has pictures in it.  I hope you all will be inspired to make a project like this one as well.  I really LOVE how it turned out.  Let me know what you think.

Tea Bag Holder Mini tutorial

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share with you all the tutorial on how I made the Tea Bag Holder from The Cutting Cafe into a mini.  A few people had asked for the dimensions so I thought I would just make a tutorial in case others wanted to know.  There are 2 videos as well as a couple of pics.

Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you all soon.

Dress Form Stick Pin Easel Card

Hi Everyone! 

I wanted to share with you all the cards I made for my first swap.  I had soo much fun making these cards and stick pins.  I can't wait to see what my swap partners have made.  I'll be sure to post them so that you all can see them as well. 

Tmika, from Scrapdaworld, hosted this swap.  We had to make a card that had a dress form on the front and 5 stick pins on the inside.  Since we have 2 partners, we were to make 3 cards; 2 to swap and 1 to keep.  I made 4 cards: 2 for my swap partners , 1 for Tmika and 1 to keep. 

The tutorial for the card can be found here.  Pics and video are below.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.

Bag and Card for Happy 1st B-day

Hi Everyone! I didn't get a chance to make a video of the bag and card that I made for the Happy 1st b-day mini album. I was running a tad bit late so I only took pictures. I used a couple of files from The Cutting Cafe:  Happy from the Long Sentiment Tag and a sentiment and dress from the Dress Shaped Card.  The bag is from Michael's, ribbon from Hobby Lobby and the heart on the tag was actually a button.  I just cut the shank off the back.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Beautiful Rose

Happy Monday!

For all the mothers reading this post, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday.  I had a good Mother's Day.  I went to dinner with my mom, my daughter, my brothers, one of my sisters-in-law and her mom.  We had a great time.  Mom had a great Mother's Day and that's what counts.

This week, over at The Cutting Cafe, the design team had to make something using the Beautiful Rose file.  When I saw the file, I immediately thought that making an open box card would be really pretty.  This set has 36 images and sentiments.  I also used a few sentiments from the For That Wonderful Mom set.  I used the tutorial from Creative Kelly to make the open box card. 

Pictures as well as a video are listed below.  Let me know what you think and have a great week!

Pinwheel - The Cutting Cafe

Hi Everyone and Happy Hump Day!

This week, over at The Cutting Cafe, we had to use the Pinwheels file.  This set comes with 3 different style pinwheels in 4 different sizes.  There are also banner sentiments and circle sentiments.  I made a card using the scalloped pinwheel.  There are pics as well as a video.  Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by.
