Cute little Gift Set from Joy

Joy gave me the cutest little gift set made with Imaginisce's new line ~Fairest of Them All~. It is a little tote with 3 matching cards inside. Sooooo cute and my favorite colors too! She got the idea from Enjoli over at Stamping Under the Sun. How lucky am have such a good friend. Enjoy!

Hello Kitty Shrink Art Necklace

I am having a Halloween Party for my daughter's little friends and decided to make them all Hello Kitty Halloween Necklaces. I used Darcie's Country Folk Shrink Art from Creations Unlimited That brand is the best for shrink art, it really takes the ink and just looks better than the other stuff out there. I love Hello Kitty, so I thought "why not make it for the girls". Hopefully they will like them as much as I liked making them. We will see....

Stationary Box a la penguins.....

Corie over at Creations by Corie sent me the directions to this fabulous stationary box. She used SU's Simply Scrappin' kits to make hers, but I didn't have any on hand. So I looked through all of my supplies and saw that I had a bunch of papers and embellishments by Imaginisce called "A Shore Thing" .

So I followed her excellent (really excellent with pics too) directions and came up with this box. Whatcha think? Of course I am going to give it to my BFF. Hope she likes it.

Pic of the outside of the box, used Soft Sky cardstock for the base.

Pic of the inside....used Soft Sky and So Saffron as my CS for the cards and tags.

One of the note cards...

One of the 3"x3" cards inside. If you are considering doing this particular project, do it! I was a bit intimidated, but once I got going, it was a breeze. It took my about 2 hours to complete. Enjoy and thanks Corie for the great project!

Some Cute RAKs from Joy

So everyone knows my BFF, Joy, she always makes me the cutest raks. I think we both want to try and make new things and know that each other love to receive them, lol. Does that make sense? I guess what I am trying to say is that I am very lucky to have someone who enjoys crafting as much as I do! Well here are some of the things that I received:

Cutie little backpack! Love it and of course my favorite colors (pink and brown).

Scallop box with my other favorite, Hello Kitty.

More Hello Kitty. I think loving Hello Kitty helps me feel young, lol! Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Some Thank You Gifts for my friend Tracy

Made this thank you gift basket using my large scallop, circle and alphabet sizzix and my new fav, Eastern Blooms. Tracy is always helping us out with travel arrangements, so I wanted to thank her with a basket of goodies!

Her friend at work also helped us out with our travel arrangements. So I made her a little nugget box with a lotion inside. I used my Bella Rose paper and a big bloom for the top of the nugget box. Just a little thank you gift.

Don't forget to enter my blog candy giveaway! The details are listed below, I added a bunch of yummy extras to the pot, some candy and some handmade! You have until Wednesday 12pm to enter! Good luck!
