Easter Gift for Jacque

I saw this box/carrier on Teri's blog and just had to make it. So cute. For the insides, I made three acetate boxes that were like the Splitcoast Acetate box, but modified to fit inside the carrier.

The inside acetate boxes were:

2 pieces 2½"x2½ CS scored at ½ all the way around. Cut up and adhere to form base and top.

1 piece of 3½x8" acetate that I scored at the notch right before the 1½ marker (which is 1 and 7/16th) all the way across. This forms the box like cylinder.

Let me know if you have any questions and have fun with this :0)!

Some more raks :0)

Just wanted to do a quick post and show you two more cards that I got. The first was made by my bff, Joy, and our whole coed soccer team signed it. So cute!

This second one was by my friend Rose. We met way back in lamaze class 5 years ago and have been friends ever since :0)! She made me my favorite Miss Kitty from her new Cricut! Love it!

Tammy over at Fun Paper Candy had a Greeting Farm Blog Candy contest and I was the winner (*note I never win anything). I got the super cute Ian/Anya set Rock the Farm. Was sooooo excited! Tammy also sent me this beautiful card that looks just like her (if I met her in person I think that she would look just like this, lol). Thanks Tammy, just love it!

Thank You!

Just wanted to share some of my birthday goodies with you all! I can't believe that I am 25 (again), lol!

The first one is from my bff, Joy. She is so thoughtful and never forgets all my favorite things. Look at this adorable Miss Anya card. The girl in purple is her and there I am in pink, lol. I can't believe that The Greeting Farm totally took our likeness and captured them into these two stamps, lol. I don't care what you think Joy, I love it!

She gave me a Hello Kitty planner (because my old planner looks really, really sad)

She made me this little purse and inside was stamp pad and a gift certificate to J's (OMG). She also gave me all of this DS paper that has cupcakes and pink all over it! Lets see....a 12x12 paper holder, metallic pens, HK watch, Sizzix Box with tabs and much more....I know, she spoils me! Thanks Joy!

My wonderful friend Maria took me out on Saturday for lunch and gave me these beautiful flowers that she made! Aren't they beautiful!

She made them with some sort of Japanese clay, just gorgeous!

She also made me a birthday card with a picture of my future baby daddy (David Beckham) inside and this cd gift card holder.

My upline and gf Jacque gave me this wonderful card and one of the very coveted SU bags from convention! I had wanted one, but all the ladies who went didn't have any left. Jacque saved one just for me, isn't she so sweet!

She also knows about my Hello Kitty problem and had these goodies inside of the bag, love it!

My super sweet friend, Teri, gave me the cutest Hello Kitty Easter box that she made and a new HK Easter die. Thank you Teri for always thinking of me!

Denise sent me this cute canister filled with yummy chocolate! Thanks Denise for always thinking of me!

I also wanted to thank everyone who sent me birthday wishes and for always thinking of me. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Have a wonderful week!

Transformers....more than meets the eyes

My nephew loves Transformers and his 4th birthday is coming up. I totally cheated on this one, cause I used an image that I got off the computer. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

* I Googled "Optimus Prime" and hit the images. Here is the site:

Raks :0)

My Aloha Rak partner Marisa over at Crafty Creativity sent me a wonderful rak! Thank you Marisa, I totally love everything. The card had these cute little strawberries on it :0)! I love the DS paper used, just adorable!

My GF Enjoli sent me the cutest rak yesterday. She knows about my love/addiction/problem to Hello Kitty and sent me a HK card with a matching luggage tag and some beautiful pearl embellishments! Thank you so much Enjoli for always being so sweet and thinking of me :0)!

Rak from Cheryl

Cheryl over at Life is Sweet was my partner for Teri's One Card Swap and she sent me the cutest Hello Kitty! Miss Kitty is all dressed up in her bunny costume for Easter. Totally cute! Thanks Cheryl, you know exactly what I like :0)!

I also did a little Gable Box class for my daughter and her two sweet friends. They loved using the Big Shot with all of the HK dies. Now my daughter thinks all of my craft stuff is free game, yikes!

Busy, busy, busy!

Thought I would post my sister's guest book and her table numbers. My embossing gun is going to explode pretty soon, lol! Once again, labor of love for my big sis!

Used chip board for the base of the book and covered them.

Inside view.

Table numbers using the SU butterfly die.

I embossed the butterflies, matted with the red cs and then attached bling and a pearl in the center. The top butterfly is a small one and the one below is the larger one.

Hope you enjoy these and have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Kitty Shaker Card for Cheryl

Here is my card for Cheryl for Teri's One Card Swap. Cheryl is a fellow Hello Kitty buff too, so I thought I would make her a little Hello Kitty shaker box.

Used my shrink art plastic and my Hello Kitty embosslit to make the little head. Imaginisce Fairest of the All DSP and there you go. Hope she likes it :0)!

Just had to share

Joy and I hung out at Teri's house on Saturday and look what Joy gave me!

She made me this twister gift box that was just soooooo cute! Look how she colored the little girl with the rabbit. Love it!

And then.....she gave me a this Girl's Day box filled with Stickles, a note pad, a little cupcake stamp and a Hello Kitty die! OMG, I am so lucky to have her as my bff! Thanks Joy!

Another Hello Kitty Collage for Teri

Going to Teri's house today for a class and wanted to bring her a little something. She loves Hello Kitty and the color pink, so I thought "why not make her one of my Hello Kitty collages". Hope she likes it! Put lots of cupcakes on it too (because who doesn't like cupcakes, lol)!

OMG Hello Kitty coming out of my ears!

I hope some of you aren't getting sick with my crazy obsession, lol! I have an SU meeting tonight and wanted to make the gals a little something. Used my Sizzix Embosslit Hello Kitty head and some Sweet Always DSP. I know the Hello Kitty isn't SU approved material, but I kind of think they wont mind ;0)!

Hello Kitty Composition Book and Matching Pen

Two of my daughter's friends are moving to Germany, so I wanted to make them a little gift for the long plane ride. Used my SU Sweet Always DSP and my Hello Kitty dies.

Used my HK Embosslit, shrink art plastic and colored it with my SU pens. Then attached it to the pen using E6000 super glue (stinky).
