Snips and Snails

Good morning!

I wanted to share this adorable gift box I made in a baby boy theme.  My sister is having a baby boy so I have boys on my mind!  This would be cute as a shower favor or a holder for a small gift. I put socks in this one but I plan to make another one and put rolled up Onesies in there.  I think these would make adorable Baby Shower decorations!!

I added some stitching to the rocking horse with my white gel pen.
The paper is from American Crafts My Baby paper pad.

I used Snips & Snails stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas which you can find HERE.

There are so many other things this set can be used for, it is not just for Babies!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting!!

Winter Treat boxes

Hello CDD Fans!  I am here to share with you some treat boxes I made using the adorable images from Craftin' Desert Divas "WINTER TREATS" stamp set. 

These are sized perfectly to color making it easy and fun to create the different holiday heads that are included in this set.

The treat boxes are from SVG Cut's Carousel Ride SVG Kit.  I changed the theme and a few elements for it to fit my needs.  One of the things I love about this file is that you can make two boxes from one sheet of 12x12 paper! The scalloped circles are from Silhouette and were either a freebie or they came with the software for my Cameo.

 I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and added some Stickles as well as some Glossy Accents to add some dimension.  

I also took advantage of the SVG's that come with these stamps.  I have to tell you when you are designing a project on your software those come in so handy because it helps you design the project around your stamp, NO more guessing!

You can buy "Winter Treats" stamp set HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Happy Crafting!!

Use the word "thank" on your project

Hello everyone!  Tis' the season to be Thankful!  Well it should be something you celebrate 24/7 but we are putting it in the forefront for this new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  We want you to be "Thank"ful and get crafty with it.  Use the word "thank" anywhere on your project and link it up to our new challenge.  We can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

I made this card using some paper from Authentique as well as the card base from SVG Cut's  Mistletoe Manor Svg kit.  To change it up I took off the reindeer and just let the sentiment and the papers be the focal point.  These would be quick and easy to whip up in multiples.  You will always need Thank you notes on hand.  The sentiments are from PaperTrey Ink.

Happy Crafting!

Elsa and Doc McStuffin door hanger

Howdy!  I wanted to pop in and share with you this double sided door hanger that I made for a Special Request.  I mixed and matched files to get Elsa to look the way I wanted and increased the size of the door hanger to fit my needs.  They were so happy with the outcome!

I used some embossing folders and Stickles on Elsa's dress.

Files I used were from Too Cute By Jessica and were as follows:

The Doc is In - Doc McStuffin

The hanger base was from SVG Cut's B is for Birthday kit that I modified to my needs.

The face stamps are from Peachy Keen Stamps.

Brown and Orange Linky Party at CDD

Good morning everyone!  There is a fun linky party going on over at Craftin Desert Divas right now.  The challenge is to make a project with brown and orange as the main colors.  

Since my twins are in Kindergarten this year I wanted to make a few cute gifts to give to their bus drivers, aids and of course teachers.  I made these adorable demi cups and filled them with a tea bag and some Hershey Nuggets.  I really liked the natural look of the turkey so I embossed him with brown ink and added little pops of color. I think they make adorable little gifts that you can give to people to let them know that you were thinking of them and how you appreciate everything they do.

Supplies used:

Stamps: Let's Get Stuffed by CDD
Paper: Authentique
Mug: My Scrap Chick
