Country Village Houses




Today is my day to show off some cuteness from My Scrap Chick!  I saw these darling houses, Country Village Box Houses and knew they would be a fun project!  I love building boxes anyways, so these were perfect!  Each of them have a different feel to them, and I had a good time making each one a little different.



I embossed them to make them look like brick houses… (cottage-like)  The boxes are pretty deep, so you could fill them with candy or gift cards, or a small gift.

I made the tall house, a box and card all in one.  I think it turned out cute, and will make a nice little house-warming gift for someone I know who s moving soon.  Perfect for a gift card!!


What do you think??

These are a few of my favorite things...



I think this may be the cutest thing I have ever made… Now, it may be because it represents my most favorite things-  Coffee- Starbucks-working out!!!  Seriously, you have to admit this is CUTE!!

I found the file on-line and couldn't wait to make it… it was a little tough to cut out do to some intricate cutting… but after about 3 yards of Freezer Paper, I finally got it right, and had to doctor it a little but I was very happy with the end result!


I ironed on the freezer paper stencil onto a tank top I bought at Old Navy, and then used fabric paint and painted two coats… let it dry, and well… isn't this the cutest??

I love it, because, I finally made me something!!  Thanks for looking!!

Hoppy Easter Bunny

Yes, it's almost Easter and I am getting ready!!!

I thought these bunnies were just the cutest thing ever…and so very easy to make!!  These are the darling Bunny Treat Wraps I found at My Scrap Chick.

They went together so very quickly, these would be perfect for the office or school.  I filled them with chocolate PB eggs.  I used Peachy Keen stamps for the faces and a cotton ball for their tails… Cute right??

"Owl"about this card



OK, this is one of my favorite cards… of course, its an Owl!!  This was a file I found at Kadoodle Bug Designs! 

I thought this was darling, and I had so much fun putting her together!!  I am not much of a card maker, and prefer "building" things, but this one was different!  I welded the base for a card and then just added dimensionals to really make it pop!!

Grab your iPod...


This is such a darling iPod treat box from My Scrap Chick!!

I don't go running without my iPod, music really helps me through some tough miles!  As I am starting  Marathon training season, I found this box, and thought what a perfect treat to make for friends that help support me in my running efforts!!


I embossed the box and using Jaded Blossom stamp set, stamped in the open area of the box!  Super cute!!  The box fits a Gift Card, and I thought an iTunes card would be perfect for this gift!!

Who wants to go on a run???

Call Me...



I am just giddy about this phone… I absolutely remember the old rotary dial phones, and how they were hard wired into the walls… Hahahahahahaha… Can you imagine, being tied to a wall??

This cut is from SVGCuts, and I had a fun time putting it together!!  It is a darling box, and the handset is separate too.  It looks like a real vintage phone!


It is a box, as the lid opens up for a nice small gift!  I added curling ribbon so it would look like the cord  on the handset!!  Isn't that adorable??  Added a pretty pink ribbon to accent the front!


I plan to take it to work and set on my desk…

Thanks for looking!!

No "Pudge" brownies


I love the No "Pudge" brownies mix!!  They are chewy brownies made with yogurt and a little more healthier than the others… and taste delicious!!  Once I found the brownie mix at the grocery store, I thought I would make a batch to share…( isn't that quite thoughtful of me??)  Hahahahaha… actually, I only shared two, as I cut them into bite sized pieces and wrapped up real pretty so it would fit nicely in this darling…Pig Belly Box!!!

Oh, my goodness… this such a cute little box!!  This box is found at My Scrap Chick.  There are so many of these cute little "belly-boxes" that once you get one, you will want to get them all!!

The box goes together so easily, and fun to embellish… the possibilities are endless really!!  I thought this would be a great birthday gift for a friend of mine… (health conscience) so I went ahead and made a card that coordinates with the box… now how cute is this…
The card comes complete with the base and layers, it went together so quickly!!  That little Pig is so darling, I almost hate to give her away!!
