Birthday Blooms Card

A quick and simple birthday card made with the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I love this stamp set and use it for everything but I realized I hadn't actually used it for a birthday card. I wanted a card  that could be made in many color themes. These cards would be great for sending to someone but would also make a nice gift presented in a homemade box. 

Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Mint Marcaron or Crumb Cake Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/5
3 x 3 Mint Macaron or Crumb Cake Cardstock 
3 x 3 Smoky Slate or Soft Suede Cardstock 
Birthday Blooms Stamp Set
Baker's Twine or Linen Thread
2 1/2 inch Circle Punch
Fast Fuse

All of the supplies are from Stampin Up. If you would like to order any of the products click the Shop Online button at the top of the page.

Teacher Thank You Gift

It is time to think about doing something special for the teacher's in your life. They give so much of themselves everyday to educate our children. This quick and easy little bag will hold 4 - 6 Sharpie Markers and makes a great presentation. The bag is easy enough that your child could help put it together. And what could be better than you teaching your child to love crafting as much as you do. 

For a PDF with all of the measurements and directions click here.

To see how I put the project together or to follow along here is a quick video tutorial.

The Pootles Box

This little box is the creation of Sam Hammond Donald known in the crafting world as Pootles. So I have named this the Pootles Box. Whenever I am in need of inspiration I head to her blog at I resized her original box to perfectly hold a Ghirardelli Mini Chocolate. I enjoy having small treats in my bag to randomly hand to someone that has made my day a little better or looks like they need a lift. Just a random act of thanks. And these wonderful boxes are perfect as they can be stored flat and made quickly. So thanks Sam. I wish I could hand you a little treat!

Download the PDF with all of the measurements here.

Please watch the video for a full tutorial. See you soon.

Tea Light Trio Box
