Fresh Prints Gate Fold Card

I've never created a gate fold card before.  Have you?  It's not as simple as folding a card in half, but the outcome is worth it.  I started with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and scored it on the 8 1/2" side at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  The two pieces of pattern paper are 5 1/2" x 1 7/8".  The belly band can be any width you like, mine is 1" x 9".  If you haven't tried a gate fold card, give it a try.  It's a fun alternative to a regular card.  

Polka Dot Cracker Boxes

These are so dang cute because they're only 3 1/2" x 1" in size.  I have 4 Hershey's Kisses inside, so it only holds a handful of treats, but the cuteness makes it worth it! 😜 I purchased the die at the Let's Create Expo a few months ago.  I can hardly wait to show you the ones I made for Halloween.  Figured I better wait another few weeks, I don't want to rush things.  Actually, I do but I won't. 😊

Birthday Gift Box With Stand

Wouldn't this be a fun little addition to the place setting of a birthday guy or girl?  You could make them for any holiday or special event.  It's a place card, or is it a gift, wait... a party favor?  😉

Cupcake Treat

Here's a fun birthday ensemble.  I used my Sizzix, Cupcake Fold-It Die set and created a little matching card to go with it.  Do you like how the birthday candle creates the handle?! 😊

Sunshine Wishes Gift Card Holder

I used the Sizzix, Pocket w/Scallop Edge Die for the holder and the Stampin' Up!, Sunshine Wishes Dies to embellish it.  The bottom of the holder is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The little tag and twine completes the look.  No wait...the gift card completes it. 😉

Little Sumthin' Gable Box

Everything you need to create this little box can be found in my Etsy shop.  Look at it here.

For You Flower Tote

Remember my impulse buy? This was part of that purchase.  What was I thinking?  I tried several ways of assembling the die pieces and never liked the results.  Neither die came with instructions. That should've been a clue. 😜 After some alterations I came up with this tote.  It reminds me of a beach tote.  At least it holds more than the first one. 👍

Just For You Card Box

I turned my Stampin' Up! Lots To Love Box into a card too! Now I have a two-fer. 😊 I left the inside of the card blank for a personal message.  I think a gift card and small treat will make a great gift to tuck inside, don't you? 

Friend Tote Box

Can't fit much in this little guy, but it has a fun shape. It opens by squeezing the sides together.  I purchased the die long ago and can't remember where, other than online.  Not sure I'll get much use out of it.  Must've been an impulse buy.  No one else has those, right? 😆

Bicycle Card

Figured I use my Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set during the summer months, when it seems appropriate.  We all know how soon the season will change and it'll be all about pumpkins, scarecrows and falling leaves. Definitely my favorite season, but don't want to rush things (ok, maybe a little... 🍂) 😀

Gold & Pink Gable Boxes

I'm so happy gold is a trendy color.  Look how great it looks with pink!  These boxes are so girly and so dang cute.  I'll have to find space in my craft room to display them, until I get tired of looking at them. 😉

Baseball Mitt And Ball Bag

I can't remember the last time I made something for a little boy.  I have to say it turned out pretty darn cute.  Don't you love the color combination? It's so sweet ...

Cutie Pie Bouquet

I altered my Stampin' Up! Cutie Pie Thinlits to create this treat box.

The flowers on top are from the May Good Things Grow, Paper Pumpkin.  Doesn't every girl want flowers and chocolate?!  This little treat has both! 😀

Painted Petals Cards

These are the sweetest 3 x 3 cards and envelopes.

They're made with the Stampin' Up!, Painted Petals and Sincere Salutations stamp sets.  I used the Envelope Liners Framelits to line the envelopes to match.

Americana Treat Bags

These bags are great for the 4th of July and other patriotic events.  You can purchase a set of 12 in my Etsy shop.  The link is found in the menu. Have a fun and safe Independence Day!

Ice Cream Cone Box

Now that summer is in full swing, how about ice cream?!  The great thing about this ice cream cone, it won't melt, so it makes the perfect addition to your outdoor event. 😋

Black & White Damask Gift Bag

Damask has to be one of my top favorites.  Black and white is easy to work with, but I'll take damask in any color.

Look how the coral tag pops against the black and white. That's why I like it! 😊

Floral Brick Wall Card

Sometimes embossing folders create a little extra on the card.  Other times they make the card, which is the case on this card.

Imagine this card without the brick wall.  Just not the same, right?

His & Hers Baby Food Jars

'Tis the season for baby showers.  So here's an idea for a baby shower party favor.  I created them with the Sizzix, Food Jar, 3-D & Spoon Die.  The bow and tie aren't part of the die but I thought they made an adorable addition. 💕

Uncle Sam Tote

This little guy turned out much better than expected.

I can hardly wait to fill him with 4th of July goodies! I think he'll be the little sumthin' I give my family this year.

Thinking Of You Flowers Card

This sweet card was made with the flower stamp from the May Good Things Grow, Paper Pumpkin Kit.  It only required 2 stamps and two colors. Easy peasy! 😊

Butterfly Tag Bag

More butterflies and more Etsy.  Yep, I created another project with a butterfly.  This time you can get the supplies for this project in my Etsy shop.  Hurry before they all fly away. 😉

Father's Day Mustache Set

From Mother's Day to Father's Day in the blink of an eye.  At least that's how I feel.  I don't have many masculine stamps so the Mustache Framelits by Stampin' Up! are my go to for masculine.

You know what...I don't have much in the way of masculine paper either. 😕 It wasn't easy pulling off this matching Father's Day card and treat.  Don't tell, but it wasn't as much fun as making a girly project either. 😉
