Click on photo for a larger view

I made these cute little bunny cups for the Paper Crafting Planet, studio g collectors group challange. (whew that's a mouthful!) I cut the cups on my Cricut with the Tags Bags Boxes and more cartridge. I used Design Studio to add the little bunny head cut outs from Doodle Charms cartridge. All the stamped images on these are Studio g. The flowers, which are Prima, and the dew drops (or skittles) are all available in my store.

Decorated Lunch Box & Note cards

I've been working on decorating mini lunch boxes and note card sets for my daughter's pre-school teachers. The end of the school year is fast approaching and I've only got one done so far!

On the outside I used Prima flowers and stickes glitter to embellish. The paper is from the Paper Studio 180 pack. The inside is lined with paper from the DCWV Stack 6, I attached a ribbon with two eyelets to hold a pen. I included 8 decorated note cards (tow of each designs shown) They are embellished with Prima flowers, Dew drops, and embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders. You can click on each photo to see a larger image

Here's some more up close photos of each card:

this one I used the Cuttlebug "just my type" embossing border, a piece of paterned paper from the Paper Studio 180 pack and some ribbon from my stash.

This one I used the Cuttlebug D'vine swirls embossing folder then cut out a square of patterned paper and heat embossed a silver "P" on it for her teacher's initial.

This card I embossed two areas with the Cuttlebug "just my type" border and left a space in the middle where I adhered a flower border that I cut out on my Cricut with the Walk in My Garden cartridge. I added little dots to the center of each flower with my stickles.

This last one I used patterned paper from DCWV Stack 6 and then added a Prima Daisy along with some Dew Drops.

All of the Cuttlebug embossing folders used on this project as well as the Primas and Dew Drops are available for sale in my store www.yourmemorieshere.com

Three St.Patty's day cards

The first card is one I made for the Split Coast Stampers CAS one button Challenge. I used Pebbles Inc. ribbon (available in my store), the shamrock is a cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and embossed it with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots (available in my store) best o' luck stamp is Studio g and added a button from my stash.
The next card I made with Studio g stamps, I cut the shamrock from Paper Doll Dress Up and embossed it with Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls(available in my store) then I inked the embossing with gold.
The last card I stamped with a Studio g stamps, embossed a piece of cardstock with Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls and then inked with gold, I added two Prima flowers (available in my store) and a goldenberry dew drop (available in my store).

I've been working on cards...

So, I learned some things while working on these cards: 1, I'm horrible at stamping(must paractice more) 2, Dew drops will melt if you have a heat gun embossing tool on them (who knew?) and finally, I am much better at simple challenges than compiling all my techniques together (I just get out of control).

My First Post!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I just finished my first decorated paint can for a swap. I had so much fun putting it together. I hope the person I'm swapping with likes it. The theme was Disney. I chose a St. Patty's day color scheme since it's early March. I used my Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge and Mickey Font cartridge. The paper is DCWV spring stack (not the newly released one) Bazzill cardstock for the lid, which I embossed with my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and other double sided cardstocks from my stash. The Flowers are Prima and the centers of the flowers are dew drops (both flowers and dew drops are available in my store). The ribbons are assorted brands, some are Pebbles inc. ribbon (available in my store) the glitter accents are Stickles and Studio g glitter glue.
