Bread box all finished

I have to say thanks to Denise Hill of Paper pastime (her blog) for this cute design. She is the creator of this addorable bread box. I just love the way this turned out. My mini loaves of bread fit just right in them and they were perfect for what I was doing.!!!!I added fruit puch stickles to the pumpkins and they sparkles quit a bit IRL I inked the edges brown and tied a small brown ribbon bow in front. I made 4 of these and the top picture shows some of the cards I made to go with them.!! Happy Sunday and thanks for looking. Thanks again Denise for your great design.!

A Notebook and card

Here is the notebook and card I made for my neighbor as a thank you. She brought us over a bunch of food and goodies and a Christams tree. That in its self was an answer to a prayer as I didnt even know if we would have been able to get to one this year. The flowers and ribbon are from The little flowers are from the bitty collection and the bigger flowers are Hydrangea. The pearl bling in the center of the flowers is Prima bling. The olive polk-a-dot ribbon is from Pebbles inc. The purple paper was bought at M's. The note pad inside was bought at Wally World for $1 in their school/stationary dept. It had a magnet on the back that I took off before I glued it down to the back cover. I did learn this, that once the note pad is glued down to the cover its to thick for the crop-a-dile. So my lesson learned is to punch all holes before you attach anything permanently. The card has the same ribbon and paper as the note pad. The flower on the card is from my stash and is a prima flower with a purple button in the middle. Button also from my stash. I did ink everything with the Tim Holts distressing in in Walnut brown. Happy Sunday and thanks for looking.

Mini gum box purse album

First off this idea is not my own. I saw a video on Youtube and cant remember who is was by. So I need to give the credit to them. When I saw this idea I fell in love with it. In the top picture you can see the gum box with all the gum out before I started. I did learn some things doing this that I think would make it better next time I do one. I covered the box in sections with paper and that let some of the pink box show through. I think I would cover the whole outside with one piece of paper next time. Second I used my cropidile to punch the whole for the purse handles. I should have used the small hole punch instead of the large hole. Third I found I needed to be carefull because the gum box was a not real sturdy. Its not flimsy but you do need to be careful with it. I made the tags on My Cricut Expressions from the Plantin cart. I used the scalloped tag cut 3 1/ 4 inches. They fit in the openings just right. I cut one out of pp and one out of white cs and glued together. The white side for journaling and they other side for a picture. I inked both sides of the tag in brown distressing ink. I didnt add much for embellishements other them some stickers as it would make it hard for them to fit in the pockets. I added lace to the front and rick rac to the back. I do need to get some velcor to hold the front down. Please let me know what you think or if you have ideas on how to improve on this for next time. Happy Thursday and thanks for looking.
