This is the next Holiday card. This card w/box I will teach on the 14th of January, at Hobby Lobby From 1 - 3. I am going in to have surgery on the 27th of December, but hopefully I can teach this class with only one hand.

These boxes were a creation I found on a blog I subscribed to. It was made with a Spellbinders Hexagon Petal Envelope and decorated with flowers and edge punch decoration, with a little bling.

These are 2" square boxes for small gifts, such as jewelry. They are made from a Spellbinders Grand Template. And decorated with different edge punches, flowers and butterflies.

Sorry for the blurry image, I couldn't get it any better. This his a Happy Birthday card that has woven card stock through lattice punched cardstock. Handmade flower and a lot of bling.

I'm on a roll, another christmas card - Wreath

I started by embossing white cardstock with a Sizzix embossing plate (Tween Diamonds), then cutting out a circle with Nestabilities' Standard Circles and covered it with ferns from Martha Stewart Fern Punch. I embellished the wreath with red rhinestones, and a ribbon. Framed it with a gold frame made with Nestabilities Labels One. The only sentiment was Merry Christmas on the inside.

Another Christmas Card

This card was made because I wanted to make another Poinsettia. I used BoBunny a Gift of Love Christmas paper front and back. I received a card folded like this and really liked the fold.

Merry Christmas is embossed with gold, as is the design on the sides of the card and the sentiment on the inside. Of curse I embellished with bling. Hope she likes the cards.

Hexagon Box

I was on a blog site that had a video on how to make this box. This is my version of the box. It was made from a Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities, "Hexagon Petal Envelope," that made the top and bottom of this box. The nestability was originally made to be an envelope. The flower was made with a Marvy punch and the leaves and blue design around the box was punched with Martha Stewart punches.

Side Step cards-Baby & Birthday

These are my newest projects, called side step cards. They were a fun project.

The leaves are cut from a Sizzix and the small flowers were cut and formed with a empressor on a mouse pad. The large flower was cut from a Marvy punch. The card is cut as a center step card.

Christmas in July

I saw a similar card on Kittie Kraft's blog and just had to design this card. Although my stamps are different, I think I came pretty close. I also used red rhinestones instead of the flowers she used on her card. They are alike, but different.

Card for Hobby Lobby Class, July 9, 2011

This is the card I will teach at the class on the 9th of July. Hope all my students love it as much as I love making and teaching this card. Martha Stewart edge punch was used on the bottom and inside. The butterfly is a nestability as well as the ovals (3) on the front and the Labels 4 on the inside. The sentiments are Close To My Heart stamps that are discontinued. This is the first time I have embellished with a bow. And of course, there's pearls on the card and rhinestones on the butterfly.

I wanted to use this paper, so I put this card together to see what the paper looks like. I think it turned out really nice and was simple to make.

My Sister loved her Birthday Card

This design is my favorite card right now. It is time consuming, but very easy. And I used my new Nestabilities Labels Eighteen and new Just Right Stamps on the front of the card. The roses are hand made and all flowers are punched as well as the leaves. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch (3 butterflies on the same punch). The edge lattice punch is also a Martha Stewart.
