My daughter recently celebrated a birthday and she asked to have a few friends over for pizza and a movie to celebrate the occasion! These are the simple invitations I created fro her to give out:
My other daughter also have a birthday coming up soon but her invites were a bit more complicated as she had a set theme in mind – I’ll share that invite with you next week!
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, All Abloom DSP Stack, Real Red Glimmer Paper

Today’s project is one that I have demonstrated a few times in recent months. It is a great gift box created using the Gift Box Punch Board, but before assembling I have used the Stars mask and Whisper White craft ink to add some extra detail. This was very easy to do, but really looks quite spectacular!
This box is now all loaded up with chocolates to give to my daughters teacher on the last day of school (which is now only a day and a half away – eek!)
Stamps: Mingle all the Way
Cardstock: Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Real Red, Mossy Meadow
Other: Note Tag Punch, Stars Mask, Cherry Cobbler Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread, 1/16″ Circle Punch
I always love those pictures in home decor magazines where there is a gorgeous Christmas tree and then all these perfectly wrapped & matching gifts piled up underneath! I would love to wrap all the gifts under our tree that way, but it doesn’t really work with the whole young kids stage of life. To make up for it, I wrapped all the gifts for my recent team stamping day with extra care and attention:
I LOVE the wrapping paper that Stampin’ Up! released in the this years Holiday Catalogue (and it’s currently on SALE here!). After wrapping the box, I added an extra piece of the wrapping paper which I punched with the Star Confetti Punch (so cute!), and wrapped it all with the Natural 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon, before finishing it off with a simple gift tag.
How are you wrapping your gifts this year?

I’m actually not sure that is the right name for this box, but that’s what I’m calling it! It is created using the Fry Box Bigz L Die – you cut 2 of the back part of the box and then join them together.
I love the shape of this box – it reminds me of those bucket style handbags! I also love this Specialty Designer Series Paper – it is cardstock weight and SO good for creating boxes (it’s also currently on SALE so snap some up while you can – you’ll find it here)!

Oops I missed a post on Monday – I was too busy altering a dozen firefly costumes for my daughters ballet concert this weekend! They are certainly going to look very cute!
Today’s project is a super simple Christmas Wreath inspired by Angie Kennedy Juda. It is created by simply cutting strips of Designer Series Paper and then adhering them round a polystyrene wreath form!
I only had a mini wreath form in my stash so I simply cut my strips a little shorter and narrower. Honestly this project is SO simple – it really couldn’t be easier! I finished mine off with the lovely gold Noel cut from Gold Foil Paper using the Wonderful Wreath framelit dies.
Cardstock: Trim the Tree DSP Stack, Gold Foil Paper, Cherry Cobbler
