I Love Owls!!!!

OMG, I’m so excited about my new 3-D project.  I saw this project at my upline Yvette Sanchez’s meeting two weeks ago and feel in love with it; that I had to make one for myself and you!  Please do not get to excite, wait yes, get super excited.  So here you go:

Owl Gift Box

Tell me this isn’t the cutest Owl you ever saw.  I know that’s what I said.  Paper-crafting is such a wonderful craft.  Look how I transformed a kraft box into a cute, lovable owl with paper, candy and no stamping.  My make and take class at work will learn how to make these in two weeks.

This box can be given out as teacher gifts, students gift, gift for individuals that do not celebrate Halloween traditional or just because it’s so cute! This would put a smile on anyone’s face.  I’m selling these at the craft fair this weekend.


Cardstock: Basic Black (121045), Crumb Cake (120953), and Pumpkin Pie (105117)

Accessories: Decorative Window Gift Box (132146), Scallop Oval Punch (119856), 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch (118874), 1-3/8 Circle Punch (119860), Blossom Punch (125603) and Googly Eyes


Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set

My Non-traditional Get Well Card

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today’s card is a non-traditional get well card.  That’s because of the colors I choose to use on this card.  I wanted it to be a fun get well card for my daughter’s grandmother in Florida.  She recently had surgery and I wanted to cheer her up and wish her well.

The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is a must have.  You can use this stamp set on any card.  It gives the background some texture.  The Tag It is stamp set was created to give back to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  When you buy the Tag It stamp set Stampin’ Up! will donate $3.00 to the RMHC.

Thank you Patsy for the idea.

I enjoyed making this card, I hope you enjoy viewing it.
