So my box when it is all closed up is a 4 inch cube (the original was a 3 inch one). I also decided not to glue the three layers together as you can get more pictures in it and I like the idea of seeing each layer as a whole. It still folds up nice and neatly to fit inside the lid. I thought that this would be a fun way for my MIL to display some of her pictures of a trip to Hawaii.
Here are individual shots of what the pages look like. The 3 blank squares on each of the layers is for the photos and then the tags and white boxes are for journaling.

This card uses the Just Celebrate stamp set. I colored the butterfly with an aquapainter and the regal rose, so saffron and bashful blue reinkers. The edges of the image were sponged with bashful blue. I used some of the so saffron designer series paper and I paper pierced a few of the layers. The brad elements are the word window punch that was cut in half because I had already adhered the layers to the card base and I didn't like the look of it overlapping the blue base.Pin It Now!

I thought that this color combo would make a cheery get well card that is not too overpowering. I am really trying to work on my water coloring to give it more depth so I made the parts near his belly and under his wing a little darker. I just use my reinker and the aquapainter to color the birdie in. I think that my favorite element of the card is the little flower in the upper right, I love how coloring it in with the uniball white gel pen makes it pop! Hope you enjoy it too.Pin It Now!

I adore these cute little notes, they are so fun to make and really easy at that. I love being able to tuck them in lunchboxes, gifts and I even stuck one in my husbands pants that he found later in the day. This box has 12 little 3x3 note cards in it with envelopes. There are 3 of each design. The box and card use the Summer Picnic Designer Series paper, with the coordinating colored cardstock and inks with the Tart and Tangy stamp set. Both are in the Occasions mini that retires at the end of the month. This is just a fun perfect beginning of summer gift.Pin It Now!

I didnt like the original front so I just had to rip it off and start over. I am much happier but still think it is lacking something. The Christmas Gift Tags label was made using the Passing Notes font from the Write Me a Memory cd 2. The tags use the retired All The Trimmings Simply Scrapping kit and matching cardstock. It was really easy, just peel the stickers and place, then set some eyelets and you are done! Viola a cute little gift that any one would love (as long as they celebrate Christmas).
This card uses the retired classic pickups stamp set for the main image. I have started using the pallete noir black ink pad for watercolored images and I love it. The card base is wild wasabi, the classic stars jumbo wheel is stamped in chocolate chip on the river rock layer. The photo corners are done in blue bayou and chocolate chip and there is also some striped wasabi grosgrain ribbon. Now I am off to go see if I can hunt down his card and "fix" it.

I have been trying to keep my cards simple so that they are easier to complete in a small class setting. The colors used for the challenge are Real Red, Regal Rose, and So Saffron. The flower image and the word come from the Just Celebrate stamp set in the mini catalog that retires at the end of the month. I tried to dye the ribbon slide because when I first put it on the card it was too silver. I put in a drop of so saffron ink refill and a small drop of crystal effects in the channel of the slide and mixed it together with a toothpick. It turned out on the dark side so next time I am going to try and mix it on something else and somehow get it into the grove, maybe with a small paint brush or something.Pin It Now!

This tin uses the SU! retired Four Seasons Designer Series Paper as well as the retired SAB set lots of thoughts. That set makes the perfect little tag for gifts when mounted with the scallop punch. I also used chocolate chip and so saffron cardstock and old olive twill ribbon, which will sadly retire at the end of the month. I love these little tins becuase they make a super cute, quick and easy, thank you gift that everyone loves becuase it is chocolate.Pin It Now!
