Box Card Obsession

I have had such a great time making these box cards!  I wanted to make all of the special ladies for our family one, and did!  Thankfully SVGCuts came to rescue with a well timed kit, as I had been working on some of my own ideas, but as usual, things were too busy to do it the way I wanted.  This kit made it easy, the hard part was picking the papers! :)  Here are the rest of what I made...



I have lot's of ideas for more fun themed box card kits and hopefully I will get time to work on them and share them soon!  How about you?  Are you digging the box card excitement?

Teacher Appreciation Week

Around these parts this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and about a bazillion other things going on too!  I know all of you with school aged kids can relate, it's just a busy time of year...  I wanted to make a card for my son's teacher and I knew I wanted it clean and simple.  I feel like that suits his teacher the best.  I love the chevron background in the Vintage Nation kit, and new it would give some texture to the card without being too busy or frilly.  Best of all?  I was able to whip this up quickly!  Sometimes that alone is just as important as being able to craft something for someone special.


Don't forget about the Anything Goes Challenge!  You should join us, who couldn't use to won some more SVGAttic files!? :)

Happy Crafting!

Hello Friends!

I have had so much fun making box cards this week for Mother's day!  I had planned to design some on my own and then SVG Cuts made it too easy and came out with some kits that make it super fast and easy!  With my limited time for crafting after work and school these days, it was perfect!   Here's what I made so far...


They are adorable and I think everyone will love them. :)  I'm making them for all the mom and grandma's this year!  
Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there and I hope you get a little crafty time too!

Enter the Anything Goes Challenge!

Hello Friends!  Today is an opportunity for me to hopefully inspire you to go create and WIN! SVGAttic is having a fun challenge and you are invited to join in the fun.  You can win up to a $25 gift card to shop through the fun designs at SVGAttic!  Nothing better than winning more crafty goodness.  You will need to use a recognizable SVG Attic file in your design but other than that- ANYTHING GOES!  You have until May 31st to link up your creation and join in the fun.

To help inspire you I made a scrapbook page.  My other hobby is genealogy.  I spend a ridiculous amount of time researching- and I love every second of it!  I have a vast collection of photos that I have acquired from my grandmothers.  Many originals- and from my distant grandmother- pictures of her pictures.  My grandmother in Illinois has been working on creating albums for years- they are exciting and fun to look through.  I wanted to give her some fun extras to add to the albums.  As soon as I saw the split monograms at SVG Attic I knew EXACTLY how I was going to use them.  I used all Close to My Heart papers- I love how the color palettes all go together so nicely making choosing colors a snap! If you are interested in learning more go to my site or email me!  I have a special offer for all new customers.


This is just for one of the family lines of course.  I have MANY more to make :) I hope she likes it as much as I do.  I think it will be fun to add this to her beautiful collection.
I hope that you enjoyed today's project and that it inspires you to join the Anything Goes Challenge
