Super Duper "Sew Suite" Treat Box

Last weekend I attended a class at Maree's - you've seen her wonderful creations on my blog before. Well this time she outdid even herself with this wonderful set. It uses the Sew Suite stamp set, and the Sweet Stitches DSP from the Occasions Mini along with Pattern Pieces single stamp and the Sweet Stitches Fabric Designer Brads.  Lookie:

And wait til you see it opened up!

Just look at all those goodies!

There are note cards:

And tags:

And four cards with decorated envelopes:

And even a little sewing kit in a jar:

Isn't it all beautiful?!

Thanks for visiting, now you can hop on over to Maree's blog Inky Moose to see what other beautiful things she has to share. But don't forget to come back here tomorrow....

Greenhouse Gala Gift Set

This set was inspired by a project from "UStamp with Dawn & Friends". I changed a little bit of everything but the main theme is still there.

The DSP is Greenhouse Gala and the stamp set is Punch Potpourri, a Level One Hostess set found in the Idea Book & Catalogue.

The set includes six cards, 10 assorted sentiments, DSP decorated envelopes, and a 'matchbox' for treats.

I really like this colour combination Pear Pizazz, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. And it was quick and fun to put the cards together using the punches - Two Step Extra Large Bird punch, Butterfly Extra Large punch, Full Heart Extra Large punch, and the Boho Blossoms Extra Large punch.

Hope you like it!


What's New Pussycat?

This is a card I made for our Cat Sitter. My best furry buddy is Max, a brown tabby, who is never more than six feet away from me at any given time, and if my feet are up he's on my lap. He gives me lots of love and joy and I try to do the same for him.

We were on vacation last month and we had to leave Max at home. Fortunately our cat sitter is a wonderful lady who loves Max almost as much as I do! When I saw this tabby stamp I couldn't resist, it looks just like Max.

Hope you like it!

Ice Cream Parlour Mobile

I've had this project in my head ever since I got the Petal Cone die in the Occasions Mini, and today I got to complete it. Ta Da!

Once I started working on it everything came together. I used the Ice Cream Parlour DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue (you still have time - March 31, 2011!). The Designer Paper was great plus there are two 12x12 sheets of self adhesive coordinating die cuts to use to decorate the carousel top and the solid butterflies.

I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit for the butterflies on the top, along with the Ice Cream Parlour ribbon and the Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim:

The larger butterflies are from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, and the cord is a sneak peek from the upcoming Summer Mini (shhh! don't tell!):

I attached everything with glue dots - after trying ribbons and thread and brads and bows... At the top of each cord on the inside of the carousel top I added a large rhinestone so that it would twinkle like stars.

If you like it please leave me a note!!
