Just Because I Care...

Taelyn's soccer coach is going to have knee the girls on Taelyn's soccer team made her their own I thought why not...make her a homemade one! I used pink pirouette for the card stock...
the cuttlebug border embossing folder...
the giga square scallop punch, the mega square punch
and the jumbo square punch...
the stamp set: eastern blooms for the flowers and
the best yet words set...
I colored them with the pens to get different colors,
used dazzling diamonds and pearl raindrops for the middle.
I also used brown polka dot ribbon.
have a good Monday! =)

Hello Kitty Boxes & Gift Card Holders...

so I thought what a way to spend the weekend, but to make hello kitty boxes for my co-workers who participated in my daughter's to say thank you...I made them these boxes in the colors that they like and topped them off with a hello kitty! so these are all the ones I made...
this one is for Mary...she likes I made her one with designer paper that had green in it and topped it off with the hello kitty with bow to match...I also used the top note bigz die for the cover of the box...
so because they purchased gift cards for Taelyn's fundraiser...I thought what a better gift to give than to add two gift card holders inside their hello kitty box! I made one christmas and one happy birthday one...something that they can use...and another way to say THANK YOU!
here is what the inside looks like...just insert the card and voila!
have a good week everyone!

girl...give me you email address so I can get information from you...

What does your name mean?

I went to Creations by Corie and she had this on her page...I thought how cool is that? It was so good that I had to post it on my blog and share it with you =)

What JOY means...

You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Find out what your name means...
What's your name's hidden meaning?

Bella Rose Kitty...

So I decided to play again with another one of my hello kitty dies...this one is "hello kitty with flower"...I decided to use the bella rose paper for the dress and flower...I put red bling and one big green bling in the middle of the flower and I used dazzling diamonds for the middles of the petals of the flower...she turned out to be so cute...I made this one for my daughter...she loves hello kitty!here's the flower on top of hello kitty's head...
I found a tutorial on split coast stampers and it was titled "easy box tutorial" found here and let me tell you it was! It took a 8 1/2" x 11" paper...that's it! I found that it's easier to make the box with designer paper than cardstock because you can fold the creases easier and you eliminate one step of putting designer paper on the front and back of the's already covered and decorated! So I made this for the winner of the "blog candy giveaway"!!! all the goodies are tucked away inside and ready to be shipped! I can't wait to announce the winner!
here is a side view of what the box looks is the flower up close...
hope you enjoyed it as much as I had fun making it =)

Have a wonderful Friday...and TGIF!!!

Birthday card for Taelyn's friend...IRVIN

My daughter had to go to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese in Aina Haina...last Saturday.
I thought what a great idea to take the card that Teri made for me with Hello Kitty and turn it into a card for Irvin (Taelyn's classmate)...
I used whisper white cardstock...
4 1/4" x 10 1/2" card...
score at 2" and flip and score at 4"...
the cover designer paper...1 1/2" x 4"
the bottom half of the designer paper is 3 3/4" x 4"
I am using the mega scallop circle punch
with the jumbo circle punch...
I used the designs: Aloha Cuties from Nancy Kubo
@ Little Dreamer Designs for the surfer boy and the turtle.
The circles punches used were: 1" and 1 1/4" from SU.
I blinged the turtle's back and used
grosgrain stitched ribbon from SU.
I used the stamp from Wow Flowers also from SU.

Thanks for stopping by today...will post more later =)

5" x 11" designer bags...

So I decided to try to make the designer bags,
but with my own sizing...
I thought about how I could use all of the
designer paper without wasting.
so I tried...5" x 11" for the bag and 1" for the border.
that equals 6" and you can make 2 bags
with a 12"x 12" paper!
Voila! there you have it!
I made 2 bags...
one for a surprise RAK and one for a co-worker's daughter...

I wanted to share this with my co-worker's daughter...
her name is Julie.
so I made her this one.
A mermaid from punches and with red hair!
just like daughter's favorite princess!

I filled it with more nips candy...

made my own circle scallop tag to top it off.

here is the one I made for someone...a surprise RAK...

I used groovy guava for this mermaid's hair.

Here's what the filler looks like...I love that candy!

I hope she likes it when she finally receives it =)

thanks for stopping by today and

have a wonderful weekend!
