Top Note Gift Box

I’ve seen these around for a while and thought I would try my hand at them 🙂 What fun! As you can see I adore the new exclusive Stampin Up! Butterfly die. I used some patterned paper, cardstock and ribbon  from Papertrey Ink.  Thanks for stopping by!




I couldn’t resist fooling around the other day and dug out my Making Memories Garden Party papers to decorate another lg clear pillow box. I wanted this one to look like an Easter Basket 🙂

Thanks for looking!

Butterfly Die & Border Punch: Stampin Up! Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft


Clear Pillow Boxes

I love clear pillow boxes…. They make just the neatest container for a little sweet treat or even a gift card. I like to decorate only a part of it so you can really see the goodies inside 🙂 I made these when my gal pal Tammy was down for a weekend (what fun!)

The paper was from a collection from SEI and I can’t remember the name! (I love the little glittery butterflies that came with it too!)   Thanks for stopping by 🙂


I just wanted to share this tin and mini accordion book made with the retired Stampin Up! Maine Blueberry designer paper- I have hoarded this set for a long time and decided to pull it out and use it!! I haven’t finished off the mini book with photos or embellishments yet but hey…. I got the basics made 🙂

Dies used for the project are Accucut and for the flower embellishment, Sizzix.



I found these new to me stamps designed by Leanne Ellis… and could not resist ordering a few. This is what I made with the “choose” stamp and mailed off to my daughter.

You can check out her etsy shop here – I ordered  the Wandering Mind print and cannot wait for it to arrive!!


New die ~ New card :)

I just recently purchased the foldout card die and had to use it with the super Yummy Perfect Day paper pack from Close to my Heart.  I used a Anya nurse stamp from The Greeting Farm.  Here are two images~ closed and open.

Thanks for visiting 🙂



My girlfriends and I used to make gazillions of these! This one I made  for the Creative Memories 45 days of Valentine Ideas 🙂 Neat idea huh?? You can take a peek here : Fun huh?? (instructions are included too for all projects!)

Maybe it’s time to make one for your sweetie and don’t share what you put under those numbers!!!
