a Keepsake set for Baby Shower gift

Today I'm sharing a fun project I made about a year ago, for a couple of friends in their baby shower party. It's a keepsake box (approx. 9.5" x 9.5") plus a 6" x 6" accordion style mini album and a 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" card. All in coordinated papers and supplies from "Perfect Day" collection(Close to My Heart).

Supplies: ribbons, brads, rhinestones, flower and flourish shape die cut, letter stickers, hemp, album and box - CTMH.

Have a great day!

my NSSS card #1

Here is the first card I made for the CTMH NSSS, which is a Faith-based group for ladies who shares the passion for scrapbooking and paper crafting.
I used the Emporium Creative Basics Collection plus the card top and Sweet leaf cardstock for the mat.
Stamps, papers and ink pad are from CTMH. The leaves (punch out) and the buttons are from my craft stash.

Thank you for visiting me today.

Baby Jar Sweet Treat

I made these as part of a party's favors, so each guest could get one as little treat - as my "THANK YOU" for joining that event.
Each jar was filled inside with assorted chocolate candies and embellished outside with stripes patterned paper from Paper Garden Collection (CTMH), and a knot in grosgrain pinky ribbon along with the scallop border. A mini round tag carries the THANK YOU simply tied with natural hemp(CTMH). A scallop punched die cut covers partially the lid.
Sorry for the yellowish images!

Do you like to decorate glasses and jars too? If not, think again! You may find something new and different from them! Try it out!

Good night!

Old ideas vs. new inspirations #1

Old ideas = always wanted to create more things featuring a scripture as main focus of the layout.
New inspirations = using new light, happy colors or images to serve as background of the projects.

Then came out with this one: it's the front cover of a journal.
Actually I used the same patterned paper kit and created many of these covers, each with different approach and details but all in same colors finishing.

Will need to finalize the whole journal(s) embellishing - then I'll share them again in the future.

Cardstock, patterned paper, ink pad, butterflies stamps, flowers stamps - CTMH.
Punch - Stampin' Up.
Scripture stamp - Sweet and Sassy Clear stamps.

Have a nice day!

3 projects in ONE evening

I made these 3 projects which were created by a Stampin' Up's demonstrator and friend of mine, Brenda during a bimonthly creative gathering.
They were made last Wednesday. We had so much fun!

All supplies are from Stampin' Up.

Just sharing some more eye-candies.
Have a great day!
