Hi! Today I am sharing a little card made with the Honeycomb Bee Card Bundle and Bee Greetings Printable PDF from My Scrap Chick.

I also used Relax Barnaby from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

My card is 5 by 7 inches and was made in Design Space. I used cardstock from the Confetti Stack by DCWV for the card base, white, light yellow and dark brown cardstock by Recollections for the mats. Using Design Space,  I attached the "Relax Barnaby" image to the honeycomb layer of the card. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils, then put together the layers of my card. I added small orange flower gems around the oval, and a yellow and brown ribbon bow to the bottom left. I printed the "Bee Greetings," cut out the greeting I wanted, and mounted it on brown, then the printed cardstock. I accented the sentiment with Prismacolor pencils and two flower gems, then mounted it to the top right of the image using foam tape.


Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Valentine Fairy Bear Booty Box


Valentines Day will be here before we know it, so it's time to get those projects for our loved ones finished.




I created this adorable booty box using the following files from My Scrap Chick.


Fairy Bear Girl Booty Box 
Triple Hearts Card Set
Be Mine Card Set
I Heart You Card Set
XO Hugs and Kisses Card Set
Rosettes Scallop Edge

FAIRY BOOTY BOX

Materials

pink, red and white  and green glitter cardstock by Colorbok
tan and pink pearlescent cardstock by Recollections
white and black glossy cardstock scraps
pink heart gems and pink round gems
inks in coordinating colors
black and white fine tip pens
adhesive and foam tape

The bear as made from tan pearlescent cardstock and the cheeks, flowers, collar and large wing was made with the pink pearlescent cardstock. The belly, flower, small wing and flower centers were made from pink glitter paper. The flower base was made from green glitter cardstock. All pieces were accented with coordinating inking around the edges. The gems were added to the collar. The finished box is about 6.5 inches tall and wide.

VALENTINE PICKS

Materials

MSC files found hereand here.
Red, pink and white glitter cardstock by Colorbok
Pearlescent pink cardstock by Recollections
Uptown Flair Glitter Stack by the Paper Studio
Pixy Stix and Peanut Butter Hearts by Palmer (I found both at Dollar Tree)
2 inch heart punch
shish kabob skewers
1/4 inch wide pink ribbon
red glitter heart picks (optional)
Double sided tape, glue
paper clips

I made each pick about 2.5 inches wide, then duplicated each one and flipped it horizontally. I then used a combination of double sided tape and glue to attach a Pixy Stix between the two layers, then held them together with paper clips while they dried.





I used the Rosettes Scallop Edge for the heart candy rosettes. I followed the PDF tutorial included with the file and made each one about 3 inches in diameter. ( You will need two strips at 1.5 inches for each rosette.) I used the heart prints from the Uptown Flair Paper Stack for the rosettes. 

I turned the rosette to the back and glued a 6 inch stick into one of the valleys, then glued a 2 inch punched heart over the hole in the center.


I added double sided tape to the stick one inch from each end, then wrapped 1/4 inch pink ribbon around the stick. I then tied a bow around the top below the rosette.


I turned the rosette over to the front.


I added several strips of double sided tape to the back of the candy heart, then attached it to the center of the rosette.


I added some floral foam to the booty box, then poked the picks into the foam. I also added two red glitter picks to the box.


I love how this Valentine Fairybear Booty Box turned out!


I hope you enjoyed my little project. Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

Party Owls Gift Box Set



I can't believe that my granddaughter is turning 14! They grow up way too fast. Since she loves owls I made her this cute little gift box set using Party Owls from My Scrap Chick.

I used papers from the  Bella Flora paper pad by Craft Smith for the box and papers from my scraps stash for the hat. I duplicated the body and wings and flipped them horizontally for the back of the box. I added googly eyes to the owl and gems to the hat.


I attached the hat to the tag with foam tape and added pink twine.

Snowman Easel Match Box




Hi! Today I am sharing a cute snowman easel match box. I created this project by combining two files from My Scrap Chick, Snowman's Friend Easel Card and Sweet Nugget Matchboxes.


Snowman's Friend Easel Card: click to enlargeSweet Nugget Matchboxes: click to enlarge             

Keeping all the pieces grouped together, I started by making the easel card so it is six inches wide. I made the snowman using glitter cardstock from Coredinations. The rest of the card was made using papers from my stash. I attached the nose, hat brim and arm with foam tape to give the snowman dimension.  A snowflake and blue gem embellishment was added to the hat band. The sentiment was accented with snowflakes and also attached with foam tape. (My sentiment came from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.)




For the drawers I kept the file grouped together, then sized it so the box measured three inches across. I made two of these out of tagboard so they were sturdier. I glued the two boxes together, side by side, then wrapped them in a coordinating piece of heavy cardstock. The easel card was then attached on top of the two boxes.



I used my snowman box to gift some tea to a tea loving friend, but it would be great for any small treasures. I love how it turned out! 



Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.

Snowman Box



HAPPY NEW YEAR!


We have definitely been having chilly weather lately - COLD! That made me think of snowmen and how to make one without freezing. I came up with this snowman box using four stacking boxes. Here's how I made him.

MATERIALS

Creepy Crawlers Trio svg from My Scrap Chick
Snowman's Friend Easel Card svg from My Scrap Chick
 white tagboard
heavy black  cardstock 
black burst cardstock 
white glitter cardstock by coredinations
orange scrap cardstock
1 large and 4 small glitter snowflake stickers (from Dollar Tree)
1 snowflake gem and 6 small clear gems (from Dollar Tree)
blue Diamond Wrap (from Dollar Tree)
2 inch sheer snowflake wired ribbon (Walmart)
4 - 1/2 inch blue buttons
white glitter tape (Cricut)

I used the box from this set for my snowman.

Creepy Crawlers Trio: click to enlarge


I made three white boxes in graduated sizes, 5 3/4 inches, 5 1/4 inches and 4 3/4 inches across. I made the base layer from tagboard for stability then added mats of glitter cardstock to each panel on the boxes and lids.

The bottom of the two smaller boxes is glued to the lid of the next larger box. I added the blue Diamond Wrap around the band of the largest box lid and added four small snowflakes and blue buttons down the front of the bottom two boxes. I made a snowman face using the one from Snowman's Friend Easel Card  and added it to the front panel of the smallest white box.


For the hat I made a 4 1/4 inch black box and added mats from a black burst cardstock from my stash. I duplicated the octagon from the pattern and made one 6 1/4 inches in black, and one 5 1/2 inches from the burst cardstock. These were used to make the brim of the hat. The black box was placed upside down on the brim and glued in place. White glitter tape was wrapped around the outside of the black box lid to make a hat band. The large snowflake was added to the front of the hat and then accented with the snowflake gem and 6 clear gems.



Each of the boxes will open so you have four nice compartments to use for storing goodies.

                                                




I hope you liked my little snowman box. Thanks for stopping by!

These little favor boxes are so much fun to make for those last minute little gifts. ( I'm going to fill mine with a little cash!) Thanks for stopping by!

 MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Gingerbread Babies


Today I am sharing an easel card and tag set featuring "Gingerbread Babies #1 & #2"  digi stamps from My Scrap Chick.




For the easel card I used Frills Circle Easel Card, and for the tag I used Scallop Circle Tags.

I uploaded all the svg's and images into Design Space. I attached the images to the white scalloped layer of the easel card and the white plain circle of the tag.  The cardstock is from Recollections and the gingerbread paper is an old paper from Hot Off the Press. The "To:" and "From:" were added using a font from my ipad. The images were colored with Prismacolor pencils. I added holly and green and red gem accents. The sentiment is from Apex.


Thanks for stopping by.
