Cake Boxes

Talk about a FUN project! This is one for sure. Super quick and easy! I needed something to put some cupcakes in for a gift and this project worked great! I got the instructions for it over at Dawn's Holiday U-Stamp going on now! There are some great ladies with great projects every day thru November 13th. If you'd like to subscribe scroll down and click on the blinkie and it'll tell you what you need to do. Yes there is a fee, but I think it's well worth it for all the great patterns and ideas!Cake box with 4 cupcakes

Flowers or Pumpkins? Take Your Pick

The following projects are some of the things I showed at a workshop last night. I got the idea to make flowers out of the Pumpins in the Pumpkin Patch set and some of the other things from Sarah's blog. She has some super cute ideas!This is a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card.
Hot Chocolate Packet Holder

Oops got these switched! This is what it looks like with the packet tucked down inside. Sorry about the color of some of the pictures my camera battery was about to go dead.
This is what I really fell in love with was how she put the pumpkin faces on the nuggets!
Super cute! I used our SU Matchbox die for this project.
Another flower card I made, but I Rock-n-Rolled around the edges.
and a simple little card, gotta love the courdury buttons!

This was one of the make-n-takes using the BS Top Note Die for a topper and Little Boo stamp!

Make -n-Take card using Falling Leaves and the Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel.
Hostess gift this one ended up being Gerty's.
and this one was Sharon's.
Glad I hadn't glued down the letters before the party!

Cottage Wall Is My Favorite DSP! (for now)

I must say I really never cared much for purple, but I love the Rich Razzleberry and the Cottage Wall DSP! So very pretty. Below is the tin I made for my Little Sis named Deb from Stampin' Addicts. She is such a sweetheart! I filled it with some goodies and sent it to her on her birthday. Mini Lunchbox Tin made with Cottage Wall DSP, Old Olive Paper, Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, Pretties Flower and Pearl, BS and Swirly die strip, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence inks!
Birthday card using the Flight of the Butterfly set and the wonderful Butterfly punch! I just love SU punches! and then let's see Cottage Wall DSP, Rich Razzleberry (don't you just love the way that name just rolls of your tongue!) Orchid Opulence, and Rich Razzleberry Ribbon.
