Cupcake Orna-ment and Gift Box.

Hello my Crafty friends today I have my first Design Team post for Joy's Life Stamps. I was just like a little kid when my parcel arrived. I didn't know which stamp set I wanted to use first, they are all so nice.
So this week the Design Team are featuring gift bags and boxes.
I think these ornaments and pretty little boxes will be the perfect gift for my neighbors on both side of us.
This is the first ornament I made using the Sentiment from Joy's Life Wintery Puns. Inside the box is this yummy looking ornament.
Doesn't the cupcake look good enough to eat?
For the second gift box I used Joy's Life All Around Stamps. Now all that left for me to do is add the ornament to the box and tie a pretty bow around it and I can scratch off two more gifts from my to do list!
The ornament itself was so easy to make. For the icing I used Dreamweaver Embossing paste to icing the ornament and well it was still wet I sprinkled on some tiny coloured beads.
Once the ornament was dry I just hot glued it into a cupcake wrapper and added a bead on top for the cherry.
For the gift box itself you can find the instructions over HERE.
So that is it for today. I hope I have inspired you to try out these cute ornaments and boxes . Until next time have a great day.

Fall Layout and "Winner" from My Blog Candy!

Good Evening my Crafty friend! Today I have a layout to share with you for the challenge over at Lets Get Sketchy!
Last weekend Lets Get Sketchy had their first Blog Hop and let me tell you it was a very good with lots of talent. When I was finished hopping they had me wanting to join in the challenge with a fall layout.
The challenge was also a colour challenge so I made sure I used the colour pallet they provided.
I will be adding some picture of the grand kids raking the leafs last fall, but since I left things to the last minute I didn't have time to print them.
This is a close up picture of the chip board letters which I covered in matching paper and added stickles for the finishing touches.
The pattern paper is called Indian Summer which my Bestie gave me, I used different shades of card stock to do the layers.
The wheelbarrow was cut from Cricuts A Walk In My Garden
and the leafs are from a Tim Holtz Alteration Decorative Strip
I am also going to enter this in D.L. Art Linky Party: Anything Goes!
and now its time to pick the winner from ny Blog Candy
and the winner is!

I Like To Play On a Cold Winter Day!

(If you are looking for my Blog Candy please Click HERE)
Hello my Crafty Friends. Today I have another fun layout for this weeks challenge at Lets Get Sketchy!
Here is a picture of this weeks sketch for Lets Get Sketchy!
and here is my take of the sketch.
I just love this picture of my nephews son. It was taken two winters ago and I will never forget that winter, we had so much snow there was no where left to put it, but the kids had so much fun playing like kids do, making snow forts, snow angels and we can't forget the snowmen.
I used a SVG file from My Scrap Chick for the cute little snowball.

Winter Park echo park paper company.
Snowflake brads and I even decided to do a bit of sewing on the layout.
I am also going to enter this layout over at D.L. Art Thankful Thursday Linky Party: challenge Anything Goes!
 So that is it for now, have a safe any happy week.

Hocus Pocous!

Today I have another Halloween gift box and matching card to show you.
I wanted to get this made so I can join in the fun over at Bittin By The Bug 2- this weeks challenge is to make a project with a witch on it.
Both the card and Gift box were cut from Cricuts Wrap Up Cartridge
I cut the box using the fit to page feature and it turned out to be a good size. I was able to put a lot of candy in it for our neighbors little girl. It was so cold here last night that we only had 49 kids coming to the door. I have so much candy left over it is unreal, I picked up enough for 375 kids!
I used Martha Stewart Halloween paper stack from last year. I just love the black glitter paper that I used for the witch and frame.
The card measure 4.50 by 7 inches and the sentiment is from My Craft Spot
I am also going to enter this in
 D.L. Art  Anything Goes Link up Party.
Next Challenge is Just Scrappin'- even thou Halloween is over they just have not seen enough Halloween Projects! So this weeks challenge is Halloween!
Thanks you for stopping by and have a safe week.
