Lori Whitlock: Leaf Window Favor Boxes

Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with  a tutorial showing how to customize the Perfectly Square Box (here in Silhouette) using the Fall Leaf Dingbats Font (here in the Silhouette Store).  This little box is perfect for so many things, favors, place cards, treat holder.  I thought it would be cute to cut a leaf shaped window in one side for fall to make little place markers for Thanksgiving.


These cute little boxes were put together using Maple Gingham Linen Petite Prints from Doodlebug Design and some fun plaid papers from Lawn Fawn.


The great thing about this technique is that you can do it to suit almost any holiday or occasion!  For the full Silhouette Tutorial head over to Lori's Blog here.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14

I've been trying to do something crafty just for fun a couple of times a month and I've found that the Lawn Fawnatics Challenges have been the perfect fix!  I played along with the latest Challenge #14- Happy Little Critters Challenge and created an anniversary card for my husband. Take a peek...


I got the idea for the open window in the card from a card class I took from Jenn Shurkus.  I thought it was such a fun idea to see your design on both the outside and inside of the card!


I used a number of goodies from Lawn Fawn including the Heart Stackables Dies, Simple Puffy Clouds Dies, Fancy Folded Banner Dies, Christmas Like No Otter Stamps and Dies and the Happy Happy Happy Stamps and dies.  The papers are from the Watercolor Wishes 6x6 pad.  My husband loved it, especially since he rarely gets the homemade cards!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Milk & Cookies Advent Calendar

Hi Everyone! Today I'm on the Doodlebug Design Blog kicking off a couple of weeks of projects featuring the  ADORABLE Milk & Cookies Collection!  Take a peek...


I started with the flannel jammies double-sided cardstock.  This paper made this project so easy! 

I then cut 26 of these boxes from Lori Whitlock (available here in the Silhouette Store)  using some Maple Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  You can fit two of these on one 12x12 page, so there's very little paper waste and they go together quickly!  I then set to decorating the boxes using the countdown squares and other papers from the collection.  Here are some close-ups....


The great thing about these boxes is that they're big enough to hold a number of items which comes in handy if you have more than one kiddo!




I added some additional embellishments to some of the boxes using the Glitter Sprinkles, Shaped Sprinkles, Odds & Ends and Doodle Pops




Here is the view from the back.  I can't wait to fill it with goodies this year!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #13

Hi Everyone!  I played along with the latest challenge over on the Lawn Fawnatics blog.  They put together a fabulous mood board, take a peek... 


I took inspiration from the colors and the images of leaves and came up with this card...


I used a number of dies for this card including the Wonderful Window Die, the Simple Puffy Clouds Dies, the Simple Stitched Hillside Border, the trees from the Shadow Box Card set and the kitty stamps and dies from the Meow You Doin' Set.  The papers are from the Perfectly Plaid Fall, Perfectly Plaid Chill, Knock on Wood and Water Color Wishes 6x6 pads.   It really went together quickly despite the number of sets used!  Lawn Fawnatics has a new challenge every couple of weeks, play along and you could win a $25 Gift Certificate to the Lawn Fawn Store!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Booville Witch's Hat

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a fun project featuring the adorable Booville Collection from Doodlebug Design!    Halloween has always been a favorite of mine, I love the costumes, the decorations, and of course... the candy!  My girly is in college now, so no costume pictures for me, so I decided to make a fun Halloween centerpiece this year, take a peek...


As soon as I saw this Witches Hat cut file from Cre8tive Cuts, I knew I had to make it!  I decided to make it a centerpiece for our table this season.  I added a number of 3D and Rolled Flowers by Lori Whitlock and then set to decorating it with the adorable Booville embellishements!  Here are some close-ups...


I love Doodlebug Odds & Ends !!  They are such a fun way to embellish projects.  I especially love the acetate ones, like this ghost I used on the front of my hat.  I also added some Icons Cardstock Stickers, the kitty and the pumpkin.


I've said it before and I'll say it again... only Doodlebug can make a spider cute.  I love the little Silly Spiders Shaped Sprinkles.  I added them to the acetate spider web (which I cut in half)  from the Odds & Ends.  I also included a "mommy" spider from the Odds & Ends.


The adorable ghosts in the Booville Collection are one of my favorites.  I added one from the Odds & Ends and another baby ghost from the Sweet Spirits Doodlepops.


The Eye Candy Shaped Sprinkles are the perfect embellishment to have peeking out between the flowers!  The little bat is from the Cute Critters Mini Doodlepops.


The best part of this centerpiece... it's actually a box that you can fill with some sweet treats!


That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Best Fishes

Hi Everyone!  I had such a fun time playing with the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Card Die, I decided to make another card using the Fintastic Friends and Mermaid for You stamp and die sets.  Take a peek...


I love making little scenes!  Again I used a transparency sheet to make one of the inserts for the card so that it appears the little angel fish is floating.  The box is made from Lawn Fawn's Knock on Wood Papers, with a Water Color Wishes background.   I hand cut the sentiment banner.  I gave the card to my Dad for his birthday, he lives by the ocean and loved the fish!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
