Easy Bridal Shower Favor

I made these favors for a friend's bridal shower who loves tea. These were made with Dollartree boxes (8 for a $1) and silk flowers from Wal-mart. Each box contained 4 herbal tea bags and were each tagged with the tags I made using the Papertrey Ink Wedding Favor set. I used Very Vanilla and Kraft paper both from SU! and Creamy Caramel ink from SU! as well as Berry Sorbet ink from Papertrey Ink.

I do have pictures that are MUCH better than this that show the entire display of favors and when I find them I will edit this post.

Simple sparkling space birthday card.

I am sharing a spacial card I made for a friend's son who is obsessed w/space. The special part is that there was no stamping involved and the saying shown in the next photograph was something that I came up with and then printed out. Plus, I was looking to use some supplies that I had been accumulating. All of the supplies above are DCWV and the stars were punched using my SU! large star punch.

I'm Back...

Ok, so technically I wasn't really gone but lazy (not that, that sounds any better). I really have created a ton of stuff over the spring and summer but the reality is that my first priority is my day job which quite often ends up being my evening/middle of the night job and since my full-time is computer intensive I sometimes need a break. That being said I am going to make a concious effort to share more here to at the very least have a diary of my crafting ventures.

Easy Wrap

I've hoped to be able to post more frequently but I haven't been successful just yet. When you work all day in the technology field you eventually have even less of a desire in the evening to hop back on the computer when you don't have to.

That having been said I have been creating to unwind when possible, now I just have to get to posting.

I did however have to wrap a present yesterday and decided to look no farther than my craft stash for the paper for something bright and cheery. The striped note card and the floral /orange paper used on the package were all Target $1 Spot finds. The green Ric-Rac was also a Target item tucked away in my supply stash.

Cherry Blossom Gift Set

I'm back and hope to be posting a little more regularly (I am really going to try to) but the last few weeks have been crazy. I have grown quite fond of Papertrey Ink's Out on a Limb set. It is a pratical set which is always a good buy in my eyes. Below is a card and candle set I threw together. I love cherry blossoms and that is what I was trying to replicate here.

A Quick and Easy Elegant Card

It has been an absolutely crazy week for me and next week will be just as crazy. I did however have time (not much though) to participate in a swap. The theme was Valentine's Day or Love and this one ended up having a definate French flair. This card used both the Carte Postele and the Leaves a La Carte stamps from Stampin Up.

A True Friend

Now that I have come down from Cloud 9 from my Papertrey Ink honor I wanted to start posting on my new blog as time permits. They are such an amazing stamp company and their stamps are always so much fun to play with each and everytime I use them.


This card was a pick me up for a friend who needed some encouragement and I knew the style was perfect for her. The sentiment is from the True Friend stamp set from Stampin Up.


In the future I will be better at times listing my supplies but for now I am going to focus on actually getting my projects posted.
