A cute little baby gift box

Here is a cute little baby gift box I have made with a little baby shoe inside. The shoe has been made using pink gingham paper, gems and silver peel offs.

I have made it as an exploding box with three layers. On the upper layer I have added the letters GIRL one letter on each square.

On the next layer I have added some pink gingham paper, with a piece of white lace stuck towards the top of each square and then I added a peel off baby item that I have stuck onto pink card and then cut around.

The bottom layer has white paper with pink spots on it again with a little lace on each square and then I have added some little baby sayings onto pink card and using decorative scissors to cut the wording out and then I stuck onto the base layer.

I have added photos of each layer so you can see each layer in detail before sticking the layers together to form the exploding box.

I have added some spotty ribbon around the edges of the lid. The image on top is called Peekaboo Girl and is available at Karens Doodles I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and then added some die cuts in each corner of the top of the lid.

I have left the centre square blank so I can add the baby details once its been born.

Black and white xmas card

Here is a black and white xmas card I have made. The image is a Karens Doodles digi image called First taste of snow. I have cut out the image with my circle nesties.

I have used the sketch over at Stamp something. The white card base is 14.5cm x 14.5cm, I added some black card and then I embossed some white card with my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and stuck that down too. I cut another two circles and then embossed them using my ice crystals Cuttlebug folder and layered onto some black scalloped circles. I printed off a Let it snow sentiment ticket and layered it onto some more black card and added to card with 3d foam.
I cut some snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch and some glittered card and stuck to card with pinflair gel.

Hope you recover soon Michelle

Here is a card I have made for my Hubby's secretary Michelle as she has had a little accident. She was standing on a chair and fell off breaking her foot and gaining a few bumps and bruises so I made a card to cheer her up.

The image is a Dustin Pike digi image called Ouch dragon. I have also mirrored the image so I could put them back to back. The image has been coloured in with Promarkers. I used a piece of pink A4 card to make this stepper card.

The wording has been die cut using my Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet. The actual message says Michelle Don't stand on chairs, I have also added elaborate corners in the front, they have been die cut using a Cuttlebug die.I have also added the word ouch on both sides.

I got a piece of invisable thread and stuck between the 2 images and then stuck the other ends on each side, The dragon can actually flip over so making it a fun card to hopefully cheer her up.

Hope you recover soon Michelle

My latest Project

This is my latest project. I applied for the free template over at Cards etc challege to make this lovely flower fold card. You have to commit to entering the challenge with the card you make with the template and have until 10th November to enter.

I have used the patterned paper from a 12 x 12 Papermania paper pad called temptations and die cut the large daisy flower (with three layers) on the front using a Sizzix daisy die and finished with a sparkly gem in the middle and stuck onto the front with a 3d foam pad. I also added Anita's silver glitterations around the patterned paper.

Inside I have used the same paper edged with glitterations on the octagon. I added 3 flowers and leaves cut using Marianne Design dies and added a gem in each, I also added the glitteration letter T to start the word Thankyou. On the petals I have cut the glitterations into small stitch size around the edges of the petals to create faux stitching. I have also added a letter onto each petal to spell out Thank you.

The image is a Karens Doodles digistamp which I have coloured in with Promarkers, I have added faux stitching around the image and then added glitterations around the edge of the image to create a frame then added the two 3d peel off butterflies.

If you haven't seen this before all you need is three of the same butterfly peel off, cut the antennae off two of them, the one that still has the antennae goes in the centre, bend the wings upwards and stick the right hand side of one of the others onto the sticky left hand side of the centre butterfly and then add the left hand side of the other butterfly to the sticky right hand side of the centre butterfly. You can then stick down onto your project with the remaining sticky sides. Hope that makes sense.
