MPS Design Team Tryout Project - Sweet Treats

I know that it has been forever since the last time I posted any projects, but I have been extremely busy and excessively tired.  So, I put together a sweet treats card box for my project.  I am alittle scared, but I am to take the chance.

Red Cardstock for lid to the box cut at 7 3/4" x 9"
Brown Cardstock for box base cut at 6 7/8" x 8 1/8"
MPS Simply Sweet Occasions Stamps
Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge
Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad
Pink, brown, and manila cardstock for the cards

The base of the box was scored at 1 1/2" on all sides of the cardstock and adhered together using the red sticky tape.  The box lid was scored at 1" on all sides. I placed ribbon on the box and made a bow using the crafter companion's bow maker.

All of the cards were cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  From the sweet treats cricut cartridge, I cut the ice cream image at 3 1/2".  I love this project.  I think that this is one of my best projects I have ever done.

New Post Coming

Hello fellow crafters! I know that I have not posted anything in awhile, but I have been extremely busy.  I recently brought three of the new cricut lite cartridges that are exclusively at Wal-Mart.  I am working on some projects and hope to have something posted soon.

Stampin' Up! Card

I stated a couple of weeks ago that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  This is the first card that I did when I received my starter's kit.  I used the pink passion cardstock for the base of the card.  Using the fast flowers (I think) stamp, I wheeled the flowers with pixie pink ink.  I layered the card with galore green cardstock and whisper white cardstock.  I stamped the flower image using the embrace life stamp set and used the stampin' pastels to apply the colors in the flower petals.  I used pixie pink ink to stamp the phrase embrace life.  I hope you enjoy!

Cricut cardz challenge

This is challenge #27 where we had to make something for father's day.  I used the create-a-critter cartridge and I cut the chick and nest at 3 inches.  The word DAD was created on the gypsy using the Don Juan cartridge and welded together.  I used a paper flower from the DCWV kit I received from HSN and I placed a pearl brad in the middle of the flower.

Just Want to be Happy

This is a scrapbook page I did for the Father's Day book.  I love this picture of the my daughter and her father.  They look so much alike.  I titled the page Happy because when my daughter saw the picture, she said that Daddy looks happy and it inspired me to create the page.  I hope that you enjoy.
