Smallest mini I ever made! For my DS teacher-to go with the candy tin and it was so super easy to make! I can't recall who did the tutorial for it on you-tube, but if I find the name, I'll edit this post. It has tons of tags for her to put her baby's pics in. The paper is from My Mind's eye, and Basic Grey.
I recently made this little tin for my DS teacher. It was her birthday and all the little kiddos signed their names on the acorns, and the sentiment says "nuts about u". The tin is full of chocolates , 'cause flowers are not so tasty. The pics are not so great but she liked it!!
This post is loaded with pictures because it's a MINI!! It's a birthday gift for a Hello Kitty fan, and I intend on making more of these for sure!! I also used Gypsy wanderings and Gypsy font, Doodlecharms, TBBM, George, Wild Card, and some stickles, MS daisy punch, bling, enamel, acrylic paint, you name it! It's girly, so there! I also made a birthday card to go along of course!
I was watching Kathy from Paper Phenomenon a few nights ago (was it last week?), making a shadow box for the Pita babes. I was so smitten by her project that I went out, got hot glue, and decided I too would make a box with some snazzy saying. Yeah, well, let's just say I'm, hot-glue-challenged and leave it at that. However, I don't give up that easy!! I made a smaller version using a little bit of hot glue, and LOTS of my user-friendly Tombo adhesive. I also hand painted a cornucopia I found about a year ago in the $ bin at Joanne's and Tombo'd that baby right on the box too. The Owl is from Create a Critter. The frame and phrase are from Wild Card. I cannot recall where the frame for the box was from. I also added Stickles and distressed stickles too. If Kathy is watching, thanks for the inspiration babe! BTW, my nails are all in one piece! LOL Papers are from DCWV Fall stack-Gotta have 'em!!
Hi there, BBTB-2
Today I'm entering the challenge over at BTBB2. I'm hoping it's not too late! The request was that you use the pointing hand cut from the Graphically speaking cart. I am trying to scrap some old pics and came across some from a cookie party we had last year. I thought the title would tie in quite nicely. The font is from Gypsy Font and the little circles are from another cart (can't remember). I hope you like it!
This little birdie did not like to have his picture taken, but I managed to get a shot of him right before he flew away. I made this little easel card using Wild Card. I added stickles an white ink, a little chalk inking, and used a fiskars punch for the little flowers. TFL!
Although I don't have very good pics of my ds birthday, I did manage to get some pics of the "inanimate" objects I made for it... well most of them. I managed to forget to take pictures of the centerpieces I labored over for HOURS! Well, it happens to everyone, right? Anywho, here is a banner I managed to make in the Robot theme (LOVE THAT CART!!). If the pictures don't tell, it reads: Diego is 5 Happy Birthday.
