50th Birthday Greeting Box

Happy Friday Crafters,

The new PDE Link Party #174 Anything but a card (optional Treat Container) challenge starts today.

For this challenge I made a box into a birthday greeting for my best friend's 50th birthday.

She love the beach/ocean so I used sea shell paper to decorate the outside of the box and pulled the theme inside with more of the same paper and a ring of sea creatures on the cake layers.

See below for recipe.

Here is the box closed.  
I kept it simple and just put Happy 50th Birthday on the top.

This is the box opened looking from the top.
I've been wanting to roll some paper to make it look like toilet paper and put "Holy Crap! You're Old!" on a birthday card for awhile now so I thought it would be funny to use that idea and put in on one of the inside flaps of the box so when she opened it this would jump out at her.  LOL  
On the opposite side I took a 50th birthday quote from the internet and typed it in my Silhouette software and sized it to the square I was wanted and used the print and cut feature. 

Here's a side view of the three layer paper cake with tea light.

Close up of the cake looking at it from the top down.

Showing me putting together one of the layers of the cake.  
I used digital paper to get this pattern.  Put glue on all the tabs and slowly attached them to the circle.

Here's a close up of the paper toilet paper.   I sized this in my Silhouette software and added score lines at one end to give it the look where you tear the TP. 

  • 3D Three Tier Birthday Cake Tealight Box - Silhouette Design ID#68054
  • 3D Three Tier Birthday Cake Cake Tealight - Silhouette Design ID#68051
    • Used Miss Kate Cuttables Bubbles digital paper to fill in the pieces of the cake except the scallop edges.
    • Scallop edges were filled in with the option to select a color from the Bubbles digital paper to fill in the scallop edges.

I hope you share your "Anything but a Card or optional Treat Container" project with us over at the PDE Link Party blog.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Crafters,

Sharing a Mother's Day card I made for my Mother-In-Law.

FYI...Does not fit in an A2 envelope. 

I wanted it bright and cheery so I chose this warm yellow and plum.  
Here is it closed.   

Here it's open but on it's back.

Here it is standing up.   I love how it turned out.   

Found this subway are on the internet so I copied it into my Silhouette design studio software and placed it on the back piece after I flipped it horizontally and then did a print and cut.   Glued it to the yellow piece before gluing it into the basket. 

Card Recipe:

  • Card from the Silhouette Store -- Box Card Mother's Day Violets Design #194401
  • Paper from my stash
  • Base inked with Stampin' Up Expresso ink
  • Leaves accented with Wink of Stella glitter pen
  • Yellow portion of flowers accented with purple Wink of Stella brush pen
  • Flower centers are sticky dots I bought awhile ago at the dollar store.
Thanks for stopping by.

Card for Administrative Professional Day 2017

Happy Friday

Last Wednesday, April 26th was Administrative Professional Day and I made these cards for the two ladies who are the adminstrative support for my work's Sales Department.

I'm sharing it with you today for the PDE Linky Party #171 Anything Goes Challenge

I used the Shoppies Sundae image from Treasure Box Designs for the main focus of my card which makes sense when you open the card and see "Here's the Scoop, we Appreciate all you do!" and the Cold Stone gift card the manager of the department purchased to give them.    Card recipe is below.

 Card Recipe:

  • Treasure Box Design Shoppies Sundae
  • Paper used for the Treasure Box Designs Shoppies Sundae:
    • Sorry, I looked on their website and couldn't find the link.   Think this was a freebie I got back in 2016 and it might be retired.   They have other SVG files that are just as cute.
    • Core'dinations Foundations:
      • Robin (blue) Smooth Texture
      • Hawaiian Orchid (Pink) Canvas Texture
      • Mocca Divine (Brown) Smooth Texture
  • Paper behind Shoppies Sundae is from the Stamps of Life Awesome Collection 6"x6" paper pad
  • Stampin' Up Petite Rose and Tempting Turquoise ink pads for accents
  • Eyelashes from the Dollar Store cut into thirds. 
  • Chocolate ice cream was embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle Brown Fizz
  • Chocolate ice cream accented with Nuvo Crystal Drops that can be purchased at Sparkle N Sprinkle's website
    • Apple Green
    • Crushed Grape
    • Dandelion Yellow
    • Caribbean Ocean
Hope you join the PDE Linky Party for the #171Anything Goes Challenge.
