Ooh La La

Here's a little birthday card I did for my oldest daughter who has grown to adult WAY too quickly. She will be graduating from college this year.=O I know I just can't be old enough to have a kid that old. We don't get to celebrate with her since she in in another state right now.

The little french guy is from Lettering Delights.
The twine is Trendy Twine.
The stamps are from MyThoughtsExactly.
The flourish is my own design.

Hope you have a happy day that is full of inspiration and smiles.

Start your engines!

If you live in a state that doesn't require you to have a license plate on both the front and back of the car that must mean they want you to flaunt your style right?

With the excitement of the magazine, I have found a perfect way to do just that. I got a license plate blank from KNK USA and put our logo on it. Now I can share my life as a cutter wherever I go.

Thanks for stopping by,

I just had to share what my super awesome fourteen year old daughter Alyssa did for me. She had some business cards done for me. Isn't that thoughtful?  I know this is her way of saying, "Hey, Mom, I  support what you're doing." She makes me laugh and smile! Lovin' you lots-n-lots!

Happy Crafting,

Set to Travel

I have had my eye on the suitcase file from Cre8tive Cutz for a while. Since we are doing a challenge on the MTC forum featuring Nancy at Cr8tive Cutz this week, I knew this was the project I wanted to do.

I resized the file to the box base came to the max that would fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock. I cut mind out of paper though. I chose this size because this fit well to what I wanted to put in the box. I followed the assembly instructions but created a second base to fit inside the first so the box would also be finished on the inside. Nancy wanted the theme to fall or Halloween so I chose a leaf print paper. The best part was when I found some graphics from Lettering Delights that would serve as my travel stickers on my suit case.

Here are the two outsides.  The LD sets I used are Around the World Sites, Around the World, and The Big Apple.
The stickers were done as print and cut images. I think my favorite part is the little guy I found to go inside.

The size I made th box is perfect to sneak a little thoughtful gift for a friend. One of my favorite things after chocolate, of course- tea.

I hope you get a chance to male your own version of this suitcase. It could be made a bunch of different sizes to fit your needs. What's even better- the file is only 99 cents!

Happy crafting,
