Inside of the card
This is one of the cards I made to go in the box
Decorated the inside slightly.
The Candy cane removable and then the Tilda was replaced after Christmas, Candy cane can be stored behind the magnet till Christmas and replaced for the holidays. Thought it would be nice to make it interchangeable
I also love the C C Design stamps
Colored with copics and used WildOrchidCrafts flowers
Here is the 3rd one, flowers I used are from WildOrchidCrafts, they are so awesome to have on hand when making cards.
Used copics , still need lots of practice but am getting better.
Here is the 2nd magnet for my friend,
used copics to color the images
Here is one of the fridge magnets I made for my friend,
I love the minis.
Love using copic markers, it's easy to match the color with the flowers.
Here is one of 2 boxes I decorated and filled it with fridge magnets, and cards for a friend for Christmas
Flowers are from WildOrchidCrafts
Made this card for a recipe swap in Nov 2010
Copics used to color image
This is the mingle card I made for my partner in December 2010

Close up of one of the floral arrangements
One more that still needs an image
Here are a few that still need some Tilda or CC Design images.
This is an awesome recipe, got it from my sister and when I make it for a BBQ or when friends over for an evening, I have the recipe ready for my guests in a card or recipe page form all decorated up for them, cause I know they will want one.
Love this image, awesome for a recipe page or card
Another pages, and this too is a wonderful recipe
Here is another one, just love these images, they add that extra touch to the page along with the punched flowers
I love doing up recipe pages, these 6 albums I have done up are for Christmas gifts.

Each album has 10 pages which makes it 20 recipes, I decorate both sides and slip them into a plastic sleeve.
This recipe is awesome. It`s one I have to make often. I have used both Beef and Pork roasts with it and have had the same response, so far not had anyone that did not like it.

Here`s one more recipe pages, the recipes themselves are also very good.
I have tried most of these and ones I haven`t I have because others have tried them and said they were awesome.

I have done up 60 recipe pages in the past 2 months, just need to add the Magnolia and CCDesign images that I have stamped and still need to colour. I have done a few so will post the ones I have done and a few pages that still need the images. I won`t post all the pages cause ythat would be 120 pictures in total. But will post a number of them.
These are the gift boxes that will go by the cake and a Happy Birthday with letters I cut out with my cricut, I cut out double of all letters and shadowed it.
I will take a picture of it once I get it up on Monday afternoon. All the ribbons are done with super fine glitter and glitter glue so it will last for many years.

Made this cake for the Day Program my ladies attend. It measures 23" X 27" the round openings are for the picture of the person who's birthday will be for the current month. Each client and staff will their picture in a candle. I have Happy Birthday on 9 of them so all 9 candles can remain on the cake at all times, for Nov there are 4 birthdays, so they'll have their picture in one of the circles when I put it up on the wall on Monday at the workshop,
I am pleased how it turned out.

Here all the ones I made.
21 suite cases and 12 baby
bottle favours and 1 large
bottle to pass around for
mom to keep.

Here are the baby shower party favours I made for my niece on the birth of her daughter's first baby.

The mini suite cases (Thanks to Suzanne J Dean)
for the instructions, love these. Then I drew up some small
baby bottles for the favours, the pocket holds a mini chocolate bar. it's decorated with the punched daisies,
tags, button, ribbon and Rhinestones.

I enjoyed making these.
Full view of the large bottle.

I added Tilda above the ribbon to finish it off.
Oh yes, I used the MS fern punch,

to decorate the pocket flap I used a button on punched flowers and Rhinestones, punched tags and a tiny dress on the tag.
Flowers and stick pins I used to decorate the bottle that will
be passed around and the guests can put a note be it advice
or cash for the new mom.

Flowers are made using 3 sizes of daisy punches and scored in the center, glued, I used two large, two medium and two small flowers and topped it off with a Rhinestone.

Corrine, my client was a huge help and scored 90% of the flowers,
so I could get them all done on time.

I love using stick pins now and again, made these using Swarovski Crystal and TB silver and pearl stickpin.

Here's my version of the suit case, I made it larger then the instructions, but the favours
I'm making the same size as the instructions from Susan Dean, perfect size for party favours.

I had to make something in shades of Brown
in another group and so this seemed to be a great project for that.

I decided to make it a little something for my great niece's new born, will be making a card
to welcome their little girl.

Baby shower is on Sat, so I best hurry, making
lots mini suite cases and baby bottle as favours for guests to take home as a keepsake.
The theme for the shower is Robin egg blue, so I am making them in baby blue with pink trims
and decorations.

Will post them when I'm done.

Made these three calendar magnets last week.
I also have the 2011 calendars to send along with these.
My niece teaches piano lessons so I thought I would send her of the ones with a piano..

Tilda's are such a joy to color and make cards with and are also great for scrap booking.

The picture does not do these justice, they look so much better in person.

Here's my first drawer box card.

made this one for my sister, the dogs in the flowers is really only one dog. I had fun in photo shopping them, I reversed one of the dogs, and made it smaller and added her to the flower to be Baillys partner.
My sister liked it.

In the drawers I will place some dog treats, we are invited to a Poolside BBQ on Sept 4th and so I thought this would be a cool gift along with a photo album I did up of her dog.

Before I give it to her I will add a 2010 calendar on top of the 2011 one.

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Here are a couple of books I decorated and use to keep track of all my Magnolia stamps.

I stamped each image and wrote the # and
the image name beside each one.

I am giving one to my sister, so she'll know which ones I have in case she needs one she does not have
I used copic markers to color the images
