3d birdhouse

Today I am on Drphilscraps. com and this month I am working with the Skylark Workshop on the go. 
I decided (with a little help from my friend) to create a 3d birdhouse. This collection is perfect for a project like this. I love the turquoise colors in this collection. On the front I used an bird embellishment from the collection. I really like the way it turned out.

Bunny Love

Today we are on another Cardz TV challenge and this one is easter. Although the sentiments I used are not an easter set you can see they work fine to create a cute easter card.

I used the set "Simply Said" . It is really versatile. The bunny is a silhouette file that I copy and pasted the largest layer and then welded two of them together. I popped up the layers and added some pink chalk on the cheeks. Please join us for this challenge and win a set of stamps!

Ok clearly I messed up on matching my colors on my frames for pics!

Create Inspiration Party Mini Box Tag Album

Welcome to the Create Inspiration Team's April Party!
We are so excited to share some DIY Spring and Easter themed projects with you today. Before we jump into our featured tutorials, we have an exciting announcement....Jessica Sprague's new sister site, Snap Click Supply Company, is now officially LIVE! We love her new site, dedicated to bringing you the best collection of digital designs on the market.

This month we are doing spring projects and although mine may not be necessarily be spring themed I used spring colors to make an adorable little cigarette style box tag album. I created the cigarette box in my silhouette program. It was a labor of love and I went through some paper that day!

I just love this little box and I had made one a few days ago for another project and just thought it would be a great tutorial. I plan to give this box to one of my team members Tammy who is going to be getting a new grand baby and its a boy. I really hope she loves it once she gets it. The list of files I used will be at the bottom of my post.

I first of course started with my box template that you will see in screen shot below. Made some little polaroids and added the elements from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy-Boy Collection

Added a cute shaped tag from Samantha Walker and then also cut a few more tags with elements from the same Echo Park collection and papers. My insert for the box is on the mat as well. Popped in some flair for my button I was going to make. I made a few extra's from various collections to use for later since I was making buttons. 

Here is a pic of my cuts for my box, tags and polaroids. I just love those little polaroids!

Close up of the elements

The main portion of the box I used a paper from Carina Gardner's Baby Mine (this collection is adorable) my little elephant on my flair button is also from Carina's Baby Mine collection. I didn't have 4 white brads so I added 2 green ones on the bottom. Note to more colored brads! I tied some Timeless Twine Olive Green & Lemonade twine around all the tags with a knot to keep the tags all together. Made a little bow out of the Timeless Twine Lemonade for the top of the box. I love this little box! Its going to a great home 

Supplies used:
Bazzill White Cardstock (to do all my printables)
White Jelly pen
assorted brads

CTMH Lollipop treat holder

Today I am on and I am sharing a quick little treat holder using the Workshop on the Go Skylark collection. I love the blue-y teal in this collection and thinking my next project will be something kind of retro. This little treat is something you can whip up really quickly. I used dies today. This is a lollipop treat die I haven't had much chance to use but once I saw those adorable Gray striped twistie ties in the WOG I had to do it. Sometimes the weirdest thing sparks a thought and I have to go with it.

The stamp is from the part of the WOG also. I really do like that you get so many elements in the kits. I hope you enjoy it.

Bella Creationz Stamp release

Today I am sharing a project I made for a very special friends new stamp release. She is the owner of Timeless Twine and I am happy to say she is a very special friend. I was excited when she got her first set done and I was too happy to create something unique for it.

Well my project is maybe not unique in the fact that there aren't others out there but I haven't seen many. I decided since I love to create files in my silhouette program that once I seen this project on pinterest I set out to make the file in there. I found some templates for this box online and then I had to create it from importing and tweaking ALOT...some of these things when importing do not trace well, so I used it as a guide and made a new file. I must have cut it about 3-4 times and tweaking various parts of it to make it as close to perfect as possible. I was very happy with the results.

Its a cigarette box and its adorable! I think I can put them together in my sleep now since I have put together alot of them in the planning phase.

I made alot of tags out of kraft paper, used the polaroid stamp and made a little mini tag album so to speak. I used Black Kraft twine (love this combo) and with the black box and the kraft tags I love the way it turned out.

I created a custom flair button from the camera stamp. I stamped the sentiment on vellum which I am loving right now. I kinda wish I hand trimmed it because the cutter left the edges a bit raw looking. But its ok. It wasn't till I put it together that I decided to do the stitching...ha ha I do this all the time which doesn't make it easy to do once you have something put together...DUH!

I have lots of pics but I wanted to show as much of the stamps as possible. Stop over at the Timeless Twine blog to see pics of what the team made with their stamps! Order your stamp set HERE!

Cardz TV Thank you card

I whipped up this cute little thank you card for Cardz TV. Sorry I am late putting this up. Having a little issue with blogger, pics gone and everything! Please join us for the Cardz TV challenge. I used a little bird I pulled off the internet and did a print and cut. I used a file from the silhouette store to make the cute word bubble frame. I love this frame. Popped a little bow out of Timeless Twine on it and inside I wrote the words Thank you.

I love kraft paper but I did a paper piercing pattern around the bottom and you can't see it. Thanks for stopping by and hope you join us for the challenge!
