24 January 2011 – First Post, finally!!

My goal this year is to post at least once a week.  I know, it’s a bit of a challenge!!

So here is a long one to start the week off.

One of my customers (hi Lynn) is moving and I wanted to give her a little gift to show my appreciation.  I got the Milk carton die for Christmas and I have been dying to use it.  They are the cutest little milk cartons that you have ever seen.  They are a bit smaller than I first thought but what they lack in size, they make up for in cuteness!!!

I found an example of a milk carton made into a bird house and I fell in love!!  I just had to make one.  I used a piece of actetate behind the hole, so that the surprise inside didn’t fall out. 

Paper:  Marina Mist, Elegant Soiree DSP, Acetate

Accessories:  Big Shot, Milk Carton Die, bird punch, 1″ circle punch, sticky strip, scalloped edge punch

I also made a card for Lynn, using the Word Play set.  I love the words in this set, espeically the size.  I also used the Colour Coach for the combination – Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cajin Craze.

Stamp Set:  Word Play

Paper:  Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze

Ink:  Cajun Craze

Accessories – Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, Brad from Hodgepodge Hardware, Elegant Lines Embossing folder, Big Shot

I’ve got another post plannned for this week, so keep an eye out.  Until then, have a great week!!
