Valentine Box

Hello everyone!! I am sharing this Valentine's box that I made for my daughter on the Craftwell blog. I do have some pictures I took along the way as well. My daughter loved how it turned out - she loves butterflies :)


I started with an empty cereal box. I cut out 3 of the flaps at the top (2 tiny ones and 1 large one).


I measured the width of the box and cut that from one of the sides. My goal was to make a box with a close-able flap, which I planned to use velcro for.


I covered the entire box with a red foil gift wrap, which I got from Dollar Tree.


I die cut some butterflies on gold mirror card stock using the Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterflies set. I die cut my daughter's name - Amelia - on the same gold mirror cardstock, but this time I lined it with double sided tape on the back, to make it easier for adhering. I couldn't find my double sided sheet, so used 3 lines of double sided tape ;) The alphabet dies are from Whimsy Stamps. I adhered some velcro fasteners on the flaps. I loved how it turned out. My daughter loved it - she loved all the sparkle and glimmer and she adores butterflies! I love my Cut N Boss - it has really made me fall in love with die cutting.


Please do let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Wedding Congratulations

Hello everyone!! I'm on the Craftwell blog today, with a Congratulations card, that I made for a friend's wedding.


I started with a 5" x 7" ivory card base. I die cut the Double Heart Gatefold die on brown card stock twice. I then die cut a heart out of the same brown card stock and used it as a base for the wreath. I die cut the leaves using the dies from the Karen Burniston - Pop-up Flower pot die and the flowers from the Sizzix Small Tattered Florals die. I adhered the leaves and flowers and a few pearls along the edge of the heart die cut. I arranged everything on the ivory card base and adhered them. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Brutus Monroe - Sharon's Script stamp set with Gilded Embossing powder on ivory card stock and adhered it down after curving it a little.

You Make My Heart Flutter

Hello everyone!! I'm on the Brutus Monroe blog today, with my last post as the DT member!!


I used the Love Bug stamp set from last year - it has the cutest Valentine bugs!! I stamped the image and colored it with Copics. I fussy cut it. I took an A2 card base and used a Square Simple Blend to mask and inked the area with Sea and Cabbage ink. I stamped the leaves with Cabbage ink. I stamped the mushroom image directly on to the inked area - for the hearts - and then adhered the fussy cut image on to it. I stamped the sentiment with Raven ink.

Christmas Candle Stand

Merry Christmas everyone!! Hope your day is filled with Peace and Joy!! Today, it's time for our Wednesday Blog Hop at Brutus Monroe. I made a Christmas Candle Stand for you today.


I bought a glass vase from Dollar Tree and applied Gold Glitter Glaze on it over the Stars stencil. I let it dry overnight. I used 2 of the pine branches I bought from the Brutus Monroe store  and twisted them together to form a ring around the glass vase. I hot glued some glitter bubble shaker balls on to the branches - I love those!!


I also got some jingle bells, small poinsettias and ribbon from Dollar Tree and hot glued them to the pine branch.
