Birthday Party Favor

I’ve been experimenting with different goodie bags for Natalie’s birthday party next week.  I wanted to make different things for the boys and girls. Well, yesterday, we went to pick out her cake – she’s been asking for a week to go do it – so she picked the Red Sox cake that Market Basket can make.  So, her theme will the be the Red Sox!  We are actually taking her to her first Red Sox game tomorrow afternoon!!!

So, I went to the party store to buy the fillers and they had a whole bunch of Red Sox stuff.  This box is what I finally came up with. It’s so easy and I can whip them up in one night.  I used the Fancy Favor Big XL die and just sliced the decorative edge off of it.  The stamp set is Just Baseball.  I really hope they don’t retire that set, it’s perfect for stuff like this.

Angela’s Box

A few weeks ago, one of my customer’s, Angela, came over and made this beautiful card box.  That night I took a picture of it, but it didn’t come out. She came to a workshop last night and brought the box back for me to retake the picture.  Didn’t she do such a great job!!!

I’m REALLY going to miss Cottage Wall, aren’t you?

All Occasion

I Cased Nancy Riley on this card.  It was such a great layout, there was no need to change it!  I used what papers I had and I’m pretty happy with it. You can change the verse around to Father’s day, graduation, birthday or thank you.  All purpose card.  The textured paper is the new Lattice Embossing Folder from the Summer Mini.  This is one of the projects in an upcoming class so check the workshops to sign up!

Get Well Soon

My mom asked for some Get Well Cards. She lives in a retirement community and goes through those and With Sympathy cards!  I did this card last year in a class. I used some of my retiring card stock and added the Beautiful Wings. It looks so much better than the  one I did last year by just adding the butterflies!!!  I also damaged my Beautiful Wings die.  It still works, but I bent it.  I’ll need to get another one.

Last night I couldn’t come up with one card. Tonight, I made 6 of these babies and another one which I will post tomorrow.  Some days it just works that way!  I need to make a gift set for my daughter’s Sunday School Teacher, but I have a few days to get that done. Going to chip into my retiring card stock for those!

I can’t wait until next Tuesday!!!  Retired list comes out and Demo Pre-order of new stamps and colors!!!!  I love being a SU Demo!!!

Card Components:

Card stock: Ballet Blue, Whisper White

Stamps: Petite Silhouettes, Sincere Salutations

Other: Ballet Blue retired ribbon, Beautiful Wings, Dazzling Diamonds, pearls

Birthday Card

First, I have to apologize to one of my favorite customers.  She came over Friday night, made a beautiful tin card box and I told her I would take a picture of it and put it on my website. Well, I messed up the exposure on my camera and the pictures came out awful!  I will need her to bring it back so I can show everyone how beautiful it is!!

Ok, on to the card. I CASED Dawn (see my blog roll) on this card.  She did a card on May 1st that I loved, but wanted to use some of my retiring colors.  I’m going to make this card for my Demo Swap on Tuesday. It works up fast and you can use just about any color with the black!  Great generic card!

Card Components:

Card stock: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black

Inks: Black Stazon, Bermuda Bay

Stamp Sets: Birthday Block, Starring You

Ink: Bermuda Bay

Accessories: 5/8″ black grosgrain ribbon, dazzling diamonds
