Recipe Box

I woke up today and decided I wanted to create something to hold my recipe cards. I created some 5x7 cards to share all my recipes with freinds I was first going to do a scrapbook album of them, but this was a little less complex...
Then I realized this will work great for Moxie Fab's Little Gifts Challenge!!!
Supplies: DCVW Indian Summer Stack & Recollections Brads

I created a template in case anyone would like to try it!
You need to start with a 10x9.5 Piece of good thick cardstock.
The final box is about 4.5x7, perfect for my recipe cards that you candownload here-- Kristina's Recipe Cards
Here's the box template

Hope you Like!

Spring is in the air

Well -- Its slated to be 76 and Sunny today here in Michigan.
Abnormal, but welcomed!

Lots of Easter/Spring challenges going around, I made this one for The Shabby Tea Room #56 and Candy Shoppe DesignsI was enthralled when I had paper in my stash that exactly matches the dress in the picture. That was lucky!

Hope you like.

Goin to the chapel...

All the hype from Paper Crafts 350 Cards & Gifts was the inspiration behind this yummy treat. You can't really eat it, but its making me want cake!!
Its a three tiered gift box that will be perfect for the wedding I am going to next weekend, in the bottom section I put gift cards for the bride and groom, the center filled with candy, and the top-- Money of course.

The box is comprised or colorbok cardstock. The black and white flowers were cut using sizzix Daisey die, painted with distress stickles, and fastened with a silver brad. Then, Hot glue'd around the base along with pearls. The top was "frosted" with lace ribbon that was sprayed with tattered angels.

I've entered my box tower into Moxie Fab Worlds Gift Wrap Challenge

Hope you like.


I've been wanting to try out the Sizzix, Tim Holtz, Tattered Florals and when I saw the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger I knew it was for this...
----- Here's our trigger.
And then the color palate at Lily Pad!! ---

All lead me to this...

It's a little eccentric...
I cut the Tattered Florals out of 4 colors.
The yellow got sprayed with Tattered Angels, The Light Blue got Clear Embossed, and the Dark Blue got Stickled ( Adj. Covered in Stickles). I left Orange alone.
I put it all together with some flocked brads and pop dots!
