Baby Girl Pop-Up Gift Card Box

When I go to craft fairs I have found that the main item that people want to purchase is baby cards. For some reason, my creativity reaches it's limits when it comes to baby items. Maybe it is because the Lord has not blessed us with children yet, or maybe it's because my stint of living at the Student Health Center at MBU has gave me a permanent disgust of things all PINK and things all BLUE. (The boys floor of the Student Health Center was ALL BLUE, and the girls floor was all pink, not just any pink, Pepto Pink.)  Anyway, I struggle to make baby items and struggle to buy baby stamps. I found this sweet image from  Lili of the Valley . The image is called  "Snuggle Time" . I really enjoy Lili of the Valley images. They only downside is that they are a company based out of the UK so waiting for them to come in the mail is a KILLER! But once I can get over my antsy need to use them, the wait is so worth it. The stamps come unmounted, (Which was a shock when I got the

Thank You for the Music Gift Box

One of the gifts that Lord has given me is the ability to play the piano. I love playing as much, if not more than I love crafting. (That's saying a lot too!) I have had the ability to play the piano for our church services for several years now. A few years back, my husband took over as song leader for our church and since then we have been able to work together and organize our church music services. One of the things we like to do, but fail to do as often as we should, is show the other musicians appriciation. We understand how much time and work goes into preparaition for the music service and sometimes the hard work goes without mention. So I decided to make something special for them as a way to say thanks. I also made one for my  Etsy Shop .     ~ When I discovered  SVG Cuts , I found this template for a  Piano box  and since I LOVE the piano, I knew I had to have it. All of our musicians play piano so I thought it was fitting. I also made cooresponding tags as well. I

Have a Heart Tissue Box Cover

I rarely make anything for myself. I am usually working on a gift for other people, or something to sell in my Etsy shop. In the spirit of making different things, I decided to do a project for my bedroom. I've been tossing around the idea of a tissue box cover. I keep a tissue box in my living room and my bedroom. I decided to use the latest Tiddly Inks Challenge to make my box. My bedroom colors are purple and gray so I decided that the tiddly inks image were most appropriate for my bedroom and easily done in purple.  For this project I used  Wryn - Have Heart  and  Wryn- Grow a little Love . Wryn-Grow a little love was the first Tiddly Inks image I ever seen. I didn't know where it came from at the time, but when I went searching for another image one day I ran across her. I just LOVE Christy's images. They are so much fun to color and I aspire to have them all one day. I also used ... Splitcoast Stampers for the Tissue Box Cover Template.  Norma's Blog  for i
