Recipe Boxes

I have officially begun my Christmas crafts... and have even finished a few! Below are the Recipe Boxes I made for all my married/newlywed friends. I had to purchase the tin boxes online, but they are well worth it. The "Recipes" cover was pressed into the clear lid of the box and the ribbon wrapped around was attached with a hot glue gun. I also attached a length of ribbon on the bottom of the box, under the recipe cards, in order to more easily pull out the recipe cards. The recipe cards were designed on the computer and printed on cardstock. And as a final touch, I included a few of my favorite recipes! Easy as pie! (There I go with those puns again.) Happy crafting!

Thanksgiving II

And now for this year's Thanksgiving card... This one I made using my A Little Bit of Happiness stamp set from Stampin' Up! And as usual, it's simple. I love simple. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and don't forget to give a whole lot of thanks! Happy crafting!

Thanksgiving I

As Thanksgiving approaches, I get really excited for the cool fall weather, the comfy fall sweaters, the warm fall colors, and of course, the much needed Thanksgiving Break! I get a full week off this year and I will most likely spend a lot of it making cards... Below is last year's Thanksgiving card which I made using my Stampin' Up! Season of Friendship stamp set. I love the simplicity of it! Happy Thanksgiving and happy crafting!

So I got to dress up and play "bridesmaid" last weekend as one of my good friends, Heather, got married! YAY! As wedding plans and preparations were being made, of course I jumped at the chance to help make anything I could... Below are the products I got to help create. I worked with Heather to design and put together the Escort Cards and Wedding Favor Tags. Heather's Grandma baked all the cookies that were given as favors... for almost 200 guests! Needless to say, I had a lot of fun and am overjoyed that I got to be a part of her special day. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Honeybear! Happy crafting!

Love in Every Language

If I haven't already mentioned this, most of the cards I make are for the boyfriend, Daniel Jamal, because he's awesome. This one is clearly no exception. I actually made this card entirely on the computer... I looked up the word LOVE in every language I could think of and pieced them all together in different shades of red. Basically, this card says LOVE over and over and over again... fancy, huh? Happy crafting!
