Washi Tape Caddy

Hi everyone! It’s HUMP DAY says the camel, lol! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a fun Washi Tape caddy that I created for my studio with the Simply Crafty SVGs Tool Caddy cut file. I’ve become addicted to skinny Washi Tape and thought it only fitting to create a caddy to hold it!

2019_03240010a

I used 120# Kraft cardstock for the base and some orange dotted cardstock for the panels. I have a fun Crafty Organization stamp set from Inspired by Stamping in my stash that I decided to use to stamp the label in matching orange ink. What a fun project – I’ll soon be making a couple more of these in different colors to hold the rest of my Washi Tape! ;)

Candy Corn Witch gift box

Hi everyone! We are just rockin-and-rollin’ through the year! Hard to believe it’s June already! I’m happy to share that I’m once again sponsoring and guest designing for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge, this time for Challenge #516 – Not A Card! As a sponsor for this challenge, I have a great prize pack consisting of an Art Gone Wild Crafty Cutts die set, a Paper Pretties birthday clear stamp set, and a package of Michaels Paper Flowers for a lucky winner over on the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog!

I created a super cute gift box using the Candy Corn Witch cut file from The Dreaming Tree. Fun, fun, fun!

I know it’s a little early, but isn’t this witchy gal the cutest ever?! And SO much fun putting together!

2018_0226002a

I used the traditional Halloween colors of black, purple, orange and yellow. And the best part is there’s not a huge list of supplies – just cardstock and a die cutting machine!

And here’s a shot with the lid off showing the box. Hmmmm… wonder what I should put in it?!

Small Split-Top Treat Boxes

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day and it’s May 1st! A new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #10 – May Anything Christmas Goes! I created a fun set of nine small split-top treat boxes. My inspiration came from an older YouTube tutorial here done by my friend, Dawn. I used Stampin’ Up cardstock, paper, stamp, ink and flower punch.

I did these assembly line fashion, by cutting the bases first and then all the patterned paper pieces. I stamped the flowers, punched them out, coated the centers with Glossy Accents and added glitter.  I popped the flowers up on dimensional foam pads on one side so the boxes could easily be opened.

Here are close-ups of the flowers. They turned out so pretty!

And here’s one final look at the group from overhead… love how these turned out!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello, my crafty peeps! Happy Friday and happy March 1st! Can you believe it?! A new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #8 – March Anything Christmas Goes! Anybody who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for fancy folds and am always looking for new ones to try. My inspiration for this very cool hanging reverse fold origami card (also called a squash card) came from one of my YouTube subscriptions HERE. Sam is one talented lady, and I could sit for hours watching her videos!

I created this card for my sister – it’s something she’ll be able to use year after year. And it’s contained in it’s own little decorated box! She loved it and showed it off to her crafty lady friends, lol!

2018_09030001a

The paper reminds me of a flannel shirt. I paired it with green crinkled paper which looks great on the white cardstock.

2018_09030002a

Here’s the lid off the box…

2018_09030003a

… and the card out of the box. I even decorated the inside, lol!

2018_09030004a

There are quite a few stamped and die cut Christmas sentiments as well as Christmas stickers used. I don’t typically use stickers on my projects but the ones I used on this came in the Photo Play paper packs and I just couldn’t resist. They are so stinkin’ cute!

2018_09030005a

Here’s a shot of the entire card hanging on the wall. It’s about 2-1/2 feet long!

2018_09030006a

And here are shots of the different sections. This was so much fun!

And here’s a shot of the back of it when it’s all folded up, which is actually the very bottom portion. LOVE how this turned out – I’m thinking I’ll be making more of these for Christmas this year!

Be Silly wall hanging

Hi everyone! Happy Friday… doing the *happy dance*… Fridays are my most favorite day of the week! And today starts a new challenge over at Polkadoodles! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Wk 7 – Anything Goes! I created a fun ‘Be Silly’ wall hanging that’s hanging in my studio to remind me that I don’t have to be serious all the time! ;) This is my last post for Polkadoodles. I’ve made the difficult decision to step down because of too many obligations right now. I’d like to thank Jan and the gang for having me along for the past several months – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!

2019_0202001a

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that even though all Polkadoodles challenges are ‘anything goes’, our design teams are challenged each week with a specific theme. This week it’s “Recycle” so I recycled the thick cardboard backing from a package of cardstock to use as the base for my wall hanging. All of the elements (image, papers, sentiment, bow and flowers) are from the amazing Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle. Be sure to check it out… you will NOT be disappointed! :)

2019_0202002a

I colored the fairy image with a new set of alcohol markers that I recently purchased (and still adding colors as they become available), and used dies from several of my favorite sets to cut a background panel, the focal image and the sentiment. I also used some fabric ribbon, flat back pearls and flower brads from my stash. This was so much fun putting together!

2019_0202003a

I’d love to enter this adorable wall hanging into the following challenges:
A Perfect Time To Craft: #2 – Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog: #60 – Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog: #87 – Anything Goes
Not Just Cards Challenges: February Anything Goes
Sweet Stampers Challenge Blog: #29 – Stitched / Real or Faux
Word Art Wednesday: Weeks #374/375 – Anything Goes

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Recycled thick cardboard backing from a package of cardstock, Papers from Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle
Stamps: Image, sentiment, bow and flowers from Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle
Ink: Studio 71 B1, B2, BG13, E15, E17, R2, YR3; Spectrum Noir BT1; Sakura White Gelly Roll pen
Dies/Punches: Spellbinders Postage Stamps die, Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Ovals die, Sizzix Dotted Squares die
