Punchy Little Boat

I had seen this card ages ago and I thought it was such a cute card (I still do!). I really liked it, however, I didn't have the stamp set, so I wanted to create the boat using punches instead. I scored a line near the top of the boat hull using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool ~ I don't know why, I just thought it needed a little something extra. I also sponged the card stock and Designer Series Paper edges. The card base and the white card stock rectangle weren't sponged, but the rest of the paper was sponged to add some depth to the project. Thanks for visiting!

Look Whoo's 2!

I needed some digital project samples around the same time that a friend of mine was planning a party for her two year old and that became the inspiration for this party invitation. I love the pink, brown, and green color scheme and the little owl on the tree branch is soooo cute! If you don't yet own My Digital Studio, you need to get There are so many projects that can be done using this digital designing software; the possibilities are virtually limitless.

Mmmm, Strawberry Jam!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE strawberry jam! While it's not my favorite flavor, it's pretty high on the list. I wanted a fun way to package some of my homemade strawberry jam for gifts and this was what I chose. Initially I thought that I wanted to make a box for the jar, but in the end I decided that I liked the simplicity of this option. With the exception of the stem, this strawberry was made using a variety of punches (the stem was just freehand cutting). Before putting the pieces together, I ran the "strawberry" through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder then colored the dots with a white gel pen to make the seeds. If you like making strawberry jam, I hope this gives you an idea for your next batch. Thanks for visiting!

Ghostly Treat Box

Fall is definitely in the air around here! Since today is October 1st I thought I should start posting some Halloween projects. This project is essentially the same as this Easter treat box that I did a while ago. I simply changed the colors and added this little ghost and pumpkin. I don't know if he looks confused, scared, or what, but I do like him. I hope that you do as well. Thanks for visiting!
