Ferrero Chocolate box

Last week I needed a quick little gift for a friend's birthday so I came up with this sweet box. It holds a packet of 3 ferrero rocher chocolates perfectly. 

I am thinking it would make lovely little table favours - I might need to recreate these for Easter! A quick change of colours, papers and sentiment and these would suit any occasion. 

I used Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and a piece of the Sweet Soiree designer series paper. The Happy Birthday sentiment fits perfectly into the classic label punch and a little bit of bling just finishes it off.  Watch the youtube clip below for the dimensions of the box.

Butterfly Magic

Happy Monday everyone! 

I mentioned in my last post that I had seen a gorgeous card that I just had to case. Well I found some more on Mary Fish's blog! 

I love this butterfly but he had been a bit neglected for a while so I was pleased to use it with this card. It is very simple but it lets the butterfly do all the 'talking'

I die cut the butterfly in very vanilla - a colour that I don't use enough of. The vanilla on the smokey  slate card base is a striking look. Add a pop of colour for the sentiment and ribbon and a few embellishments and the card was done! 

Having two layers of the same cardstock adds an extra element to the card without distracting from the mail feature - the butterfly.

The shimmer ribbon is a free item you can earn during sale-a-bration. It comes in a pack of 3 - smokey slate, bermuda bay and calypso coral. These have a light shimmer and tie beautifully!

Well that is all from me, I am off to make some more of these cards in all kinds of colour combinations!

Tutti Frutti notecards

Do you ever have those moments where you see a card that someone has made and just have to recreate it immediately? 

I did exactly that with this card this week. It was made by a US demonstrator Mary Fish. I love her clean and simple designs and this one was too cute to resist!  I've been wanting to showcase the cute fruit papers in the Tutti Frutti designer series papers and making them into these notecards seemed like the perfect idea! 

My first card is using the kiwi fruit - yum! 

But then I decided to go further and use a few more of the fruits to make a yummy fruit basket collection!

Strawberries and blueberries!


The whole fruit basket :)

Using the notecards make these cards a breeze as the cards a cut and pre-scored. They also come with envelopes. The sentiment comes from the All Things Thanks set and is punched out with the Classic Label punch.

Bright, happy Hello cards!

Hello everyone, today I have some cards to share with you that I  made for customer thank yous and also to send with the second release sale-a-bration brochure. Isn't he just the cutest!? So fun and bright and I just love the pineapples. The galah is coloured with the blends - light and dark old olive and light daffodil delight.

I don't normally make cards this bright but I love how they turned out ands they make me smile everytime I see them. I didn't have a huge amount of the ribbon so I cheated a little and just made a knot with a small piece rather than wrap it around the card as I had originally intended. It still has the same effect but is a more economical way to use ribbon!  

Using the circle punches makes mass production simple and easy. For this card I used the 2" circle punch and the starburst punch.  

The fun pineapples come from the Tutti Frutti designer series paper. 

I added some more birds to the gifts for this month - because you can never have too many embellishments right?!

The design for the card came from Erica @ Pink Buckaroo - thanks Erica!
