Lori Whitlock: 3D Pumpkin

Hi Everyone! Today I have a cute 3D Pumpkin for Lori Whitlock, perfect for Fall and Halloween gift giving or decorating!  Take a peek...

I used Lori's 3D Pumpkin Short  (here in the Silhouette Store)  to make this adorable box.   This box also comes in medium and tall (here and here in the Silhouette Store.)  Lori also has great assembly directions for these pumpkins here.  The paper is Doodlebug Design's Ginham Linen Petite Prints in Coral.  The best part, the pumpkin opens up to hold some goodies!

This would make a fabulous gift for a friend or coworker.  It would also make a great seasonal centerpiece!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Washi Tape Challenge

Hi Everyone!  I'm up on the Doodlebug Design Blog today with my Washi Tape project.  My daughter is in college and her whole dorm room has been carefully coordinated in her favorite colors.  I decided I'd make her a fun frame to add to her decorations.  Take a peek...

I started with a chipboard frame I've had in my stash for years.  I painted it white since the color of the frame somewhat shows through the tapes.  I then proceeded to cover the frame with various Doodlebug Washi Tapes in Swimming Pool, Lily White, Bumblebee and Grey.  For the window, I initially covered the space, then turned the frame over and cut out the window using a craft knife.

I finished the frame with a couple of cute stickers from the Spring Things Icon Sticker Sheet which I popped up with some foam tape.  I added a cute black & white photo of my daughter and her friends and it was done!  It looks so cute in her dorm!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #15

My friend and I are keeping our resolution to get together and craft at least once a month!  We've been playing along with the Lawn Fawnatics challenges, it's been so much fun!  We worked on Challenge #15 this week, which was to make clever gift packaging.  This is what I created...

I used seven of the Tiny Gift Boxes to make a little Christmas Tree.  I decorated it with stamps and dies from the Trim the Tree set, the star from the Large Stitched Journaling card, Small Stitched Square Stackables, Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and the kitty Stamp and die from the Meow You Doin' set.  

The best part is that all of the little boxes open to hold a little treat!  You could even make an entire Christmas Countdown calendar doing this if you wanted!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock: Leaf Window Favor Boxes

Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with  a tutorial showing how to customize the Perfectly Square Box (here in Silhouette) using the Fall Leaf Dingbats Font (here in the Silhouette Store).  This little box is perfect for so many things, favors, place cards, treat holder.  I thought it would be cute to cut a leaf shaped window in one side for fall to make little place markers for Thanksgiving.

These cute little boxes were put together using Maple Gingham Linen Petite Prints from Doodlebug Design and some fun plaid papers from Lawn Fawn.

The great thing about this technique is that you can do it to suit almost any holiday or occasion!  For the full Silhouette Tutorial head over to Lori's Blog here.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14

I've been trying to do something crafty just for fun a couple of times a month and I've found that the Lawn Fawnatics Challenges have been the perfect fix!  I played along with the latest Challenge #14- Happy Little Critters Challenge and created an anniversary card for my husband. Take a peek...

I got the idea for the open window in the card from a card class I took from Jenn Shurkus.  I thought it was such a fun idea to see your design on both the outside and inside of the card!

I used a number of goodies from Lawn Fawn including the Heart Stackables Dies, Simple Puffy Clouds Dies, Fancy Folded Banner Dies, Christmas Like No Otter Stamps and Dies and the Happy Happy Happy Stamps and dies.  The papers are from the Watercolor Wishes 6x6 pad.  My husband loved it, especially since he rarely gets the homemade cards!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Milk & Cookies Advent Calendar

Hi Everyone! Today I'm on the Doodlebug Design Blog kicking off a couple of weeks of projects featuring the  ADORABLE Milk & Cookies Collection!  Take a peek...

I started with the flannel jammies double-sided cardstock.  This paper made this project so easy! 

I then cut 26 of these boxes from Lori Whitlock (available here in the Silhouette Store)  using some Maple Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  You can fit two of these on one 12x12 page, so there's very little paper waste and they go together quickly!  I then set to decorating the boxes using the countdown squares and other papers from the collection.  Here are some close-ups....

The great thing about these boxes is that they're big enough to hold a number of items which comes in handy if you have more than one kiddo!

I added some additional embellishments to some of the boxes using the Glitter Sprinkles, Shaped Sprinkles, Odds & Ends and Doodle Pops

Here is the view from the back.  I can't wait to fill it with goodies this year!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
