Easter 2009 - My page

Easter 2009

I eventually did my Easter page. I must say we look scary so early in the morning, but we had no chance to get dressed! The kids dragged us out of bead so we could help them find all the eggs that Easter bunny had left them! :)

Scrapped Stimrol Box

From this - Stimrol Box

To This -

Scrapped SB SB I

I chew gum all day and have quite a few STIMOROL boxes. So I decided to play around and this is what I came up with. It makes a great pocket for a card. Also another great project for all your scraps. I also think this would make a great birthday invitation that's inexpensive - still need to play around with that idea.

After making the cards in paper cigar boxes, I don't get rid of any boxes! Good way of recycling - WHAT DO YOU THINK? :)

Fathers Day Card - In Paper Cigar Box (Step by Step)

I know its early to start with Fathers day projects, but you might need some time to find the perfect paper box & this project is great for all those scraps.

Before & After

What you will need:

- Paper Cigar Box
- Scraps of paper
- Double sided tape
- Craft Knife
- Scraps of denim, buttons, brads etc. to decorate


Step 1
- Start by covering each section of the paper cigar box. I recommend using double sided tape.

Step 2 - Once you have covered the entire box, decorate the front of the box using embellishments of your choice.


Step 3 - Now you are going to make your card for the inside of the box. Measure the width & length of your box. Use card-stock to make the card - the length stays the same, but you need to double the width. Cut & fold in half.


Step 4 - Now you are going to decorate the front of your card using embellishments of your choice.


Slip your card into the box - that's that YOU ARE DONE!

Well I hope this inspires you. :)

You Rock

You Rock

This is another page I did yesterday afternoon using the new papers, die-cuts and rub-ons. I think these dies are absolutely fabulous and there are so many to choose from, and these new papers are gorgeous. :)

Sunday Sunflowers

Sunday Sunflowers

Eventually I have done this page - thanks Winnie for my title! I decided to use a negative strip for my title - something different? I have been searching for sunflower paper and just could not find any!! I think that why its taken me so long to do this page, but the new papers from K&Company are just fabulous and worked perfectly for my page!!
What do you think? :)

Mothers Day Card No.2

This weekend I went hunting for the spoons I used on the apron - the ladies love these spoons because each one has a special little message engraved on the handle. On my travels I found a DRESS note pad. So I used a page from the note pad as my template for my dress, for my mothers day card.


This is another project that is great for all those scraps we collect! :)

Sketch # 17 - Frog

I was browsing the web and came across a social network called 52 Sketches... 52 Weeks - this is a weekly sketch challenge site, so I decided to join. Their sketch # 17 inspired me to do this page - FROG.
