Bride and Groom Boxes

Since I bought this cartridge, Tying the Knot, I have been wanting to make these boxes... so I happend by the cartridge and thought, now would be a perfect time!  They were very easy to put together, but I wouldn't want to make these for a Wedding Party, unless you were just making a few!  Time consuming!  But, they would be great for a birthday, prom, or special occasion type of get together!
I cut these at 9" and not a lot fit in them... but maybe some Kisses or lip gloss?
I have a couple of friends getting married this year, so maybe I will save them and use a "topper" on a gift!

Happy New Years!

I didn't get a chance to play much for Christmas... so I thought I would start the New Year off right, with a little something for me!  hahahha
Most of you know I run for fun... and the registration fees for races are very expensive!  Almost as expensive as Cricut!  I thought that for the upcoming year, I would try and save a little $$ for race registration fees for the next year!  I love the thought of banks, but they can be a little intimidating, when you walk past and don't see alot of $$ inside... so I thought of something I could tuck in a drawer for safe keeping!!
Using, Celebrate with Flourish,  TBBM, and Don Juan, I put together this little matchbox.  It will fit nice in my drawer, and hopefully, at this time next year, I will have enough $$ to register for some additional races!!  Hooray!!

Mittens

I am back!!!  So sorry I have been MIA...I, myself hate to go to blogs and see the same there over a month!! So my apologies!  I have been so very busy...haven't had tome to play in my craft room!  Thanks Jean, for checking in on me...how thoughtful!
I did have to make some last minute Christmas cards and things, so I made some time to "play" a little bit!! Hahhaha
In a hurry, I put together cards shaped like mittens from the Design Calendar cartridge.  I cut them at 5.50 and welded them together and then cut the layer at 5.25.  Added some faux fur and some bling and there you have it!  Just the right size for a gift card!!
Thanks for stopping by...
