Amazing Lil' Gift Set!!!

DSCN4738

WHOO HOO!!! I've been working hard to get this new February project ready for you...and I WON!!! This adorable book box is the perfect way to present a gift of beautiful handmade cards to just about anyone!  This one was specifically made with the Zoo Babies and Another Thank You stamp sets. It's perfect for young mothers...and it was designed as a gift idea to give to someone when they have a baby. One of the nicest things you can do is provide some cutie patootie baby themed cards for a new mother to send out for the wonderful gifts she receives for her new baby! Or any mother to send out for gifts received for her little munchkins.

DSCN4716

Each month I provide a GIFT for everyone that places an order with me - this will be yours in February. You'll receive this PDF file telling you everything you need to know to re-create this adorable set for yourself. The PDF file includes:

  • Cutting & scoring dimensions
  • All supplies used and sizes of punches
  • A complete list of ingredients used including card stock and ink colors
  • Embellishments used
  • AND an exclusive video showing you how to make the Book Box!

 This gift set includes 6 exclusive cards too:

Cute story...

My daughter Hailey came wandering into my stampin' studio a few months ago looking for something to do. She said "mom, I want to stamp...what should I make?" WELL - I was all over that! I told her I needed gift sets to be able to share with all my fabulous customers. So I pointed her in the direction of the internet to surf around for some ideas for a container...told her a few rules I have for my gift sets and she buckled down to come up with these amazing cards and stinkin' cute box! WAY TO GO HAILEY!

You can get the file for free with an order or you can

purchase the PDF file for $3.95 here:

Botanicals Wall Art

DSCN4084

Here's a project I've been so excited to share with you!!! We have a gift exchange at our annual Demonstrator Christmas party and this is the gift that I made for the exchange. I am in LOVE with the Botanicals Suite in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I combined the Botanical framelits with the Hello Life stamp "DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY" to make a beautiful framed piece. The frame is for a 12" x 12" scrapbook page.

DSCN4077

Here's a close up - this was really quite easy to make - all I really did was die cut the flowers and leaves...sponged some color in the middle of the flowers and drew some lines on them with my Real Red marker.  The leaves look like they are porcelain because I squished them in VersaMark ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder - twice!

DSCN4081

The words are embossed with black embossing powder and the designer paper is from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. Add a little burlap ribbon and white baker's twine and WAAA LAAA!

Homemade Gifts

I just downloaded all my photos from the past week or so and wanted to share some of the homemade gifts from my family this Christmas!

DSCN4202

I made these pillows out of my dad's western shirts. They we super easy and turned out soooo good! I made all my dad's shirts - he called me his "personal tailor!" We lost him 3 years ago. Each of his grandkids received one of these for Christmas. They LOVED them!!!  Jill Glando of Virginia made the embroidered panels for me - YAY to her!!! She did an amazing job!

DSCN4211

I also made 2 pillows for my mom...she cried...and loved them too!

DSCN4268

Hailey got this one - I made her a matching dress when she was about 4 or 5 (I think) - I have a photo of Hailey and her Papa wearing them together too! That means this shirt is about 16-18 years old.

DSCN4271

I ordered a pair of homemade mittens from Jean Lowney of Neenah for Hailey - she requested them in really bright colors and Jean really came threw - she LOVED them!

DSCN4272

Hailey took a picture out of an old frame and painted this snowman on the glass for Grama - turned out great and she LOVED IT! 

DSCN4275

DSCN4277

Hailey loves to take photos and make them into works of art.  Here is one she made for her dad with all his girls in it - he LOVED IT!

DSCN4214

And the one she made for Grama - she LOVED IT!

DSCN4258

And this one for me - I LOVE IT!

DSCN4260

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season - remember that these types of homemade gifts are so cherished and really not too hard to make!!!

Gor-Jee-Ous Gift Holder

DSCN9560

Isn't this adorbs???  It's two of the Pillow Box Dies - just slide them together and you have a gift box that is double the size.  This is a pretty good sized box - like you could fit a pair of socks in this puppy. The black belly band adds some support to the middle and covers the seams where the two boxes come together.

The Pillow Box die is shown below and you can bundle it with the A Little Something stamp set for a 15% discount.  The stamp set has the perfect sized stamps to decorate your box if you choose to use solid cardstock instead of Designer Series Paper.

I received this box from Jill Olsen when I was in Utah - she really loaded us up with some great treats!
