Cuppa Mae and a Box Tutorial....

I don't know about you all, but I am a Pinterest addict! I love going there for all sorts of inspiration. Especially crafty ideas and recipes!! Awhile back ago I found this simple box by Cosmo Cricket made from a 12x12 piece of cardstock.  They have a video tutorial available. I did a photo tutorial which I happen to like because I don't have to pause in between steps!!

 Get your scor-board out!!

Score your paper at 3" and 9", then turn...

Score the other side at 5" and 7".
Crease the score lines.

Here is where it gets a little tricky.  You have to bring the center out to the sides like this...
After you do all 4 sides, you will end up with something that looks like the below:

Unfold and add a strong adhesive such as Scor-tape, ATG, etc.

Add tape to all 4 locations as shown:

You should have something now that looks like this:
Now it's time for the fun stuff. You can decorate the outside as you wish. Be sure to add a flap to it so you can close the box easily.

I used Cuppa Mae from Some Odd Girl. Colored with my copic markers. The paper is from Bo Bunny.

Crush On You - SOG

Good morning! I hate monday mornings! blah! I always need just one more day of weekend time to get things done and get in some rest time. 2 days is just not enough, especially because this time of year is always a BUSY time with so many birthdays and events going on. I think we have something going on every weekend for the next 2 months.  I need another vaca!!

Today is my day to contribute to the Some Odd Girl Blog. I have used Kody with Flowers.

Love Kody and he is so adorable holding those flowers.  Copics were used to color him and the paper is from the Devoted by Carta Bella line. 
Thanks for looking today,

Fashionably Late

Good morning! I am definitely fashionably late on this card! We have the latest challenge going on at Markerpop this week and it's "Buttons", it's started Monday but you have plenty of time to join in.

I used "Anya Styles" from The Greeting Farm.  These images are so much fun to color. They are LARGE, which can be challenging....but fun!  And the Hair...FUN! Love how it came out too.  I used papers from Paris Girl collection by Carta Bella.

Btw - I have a little Facebook Giveaway going on too.  Like MY PAGE, share it, leave a comment for a chance to win 2 stamps. One from The Greeting farm and another from Stampavie! ;-)

Thanks for looking.

Make Everyday Magic

I am going to bombard you this morning with lots of goodness. I was SICK all weekend. Apparently I partyed way to hard at Mardi Gras last week and when I came home on thursday I wasn't feeling quite like myself. Then I started to get congested....and full on cold. Yuck!  Today is seriously the best I have felt and thats not saying much because I am most definitely NOT 100% yet. But at least I feel somewhat alive!!

This week is the new clear stamp releases for SOG.  I'll have another one for you in a little while.

Yesterdays release was called FAIRY MAGIC.
Thanks for looking!

Maggie Heart Treat Box

Good morning! Happy Valentines day!  Lucky me just got back from a fabulous trip to Mardi Gras! Our first time and it was a BLAST!!!!!!!!!!  I'm tired and exhausted and will share more later....but since today is Valentines day I wanted to share with you my last project!!   A little treat box.

So simple to do. Cut out 2 heart shapes using whatever die or die cutting machine you have. Then I took a strip of cardstock that was 3" x 6". I scored 1/2 on each side of the 3" sides. Then I scored in the middle of the 6" long side. I then cut a notch at that score mark so that I could fold it. I adhered the strip to the hearts to form a box. I then added a simple strip of cardstock for the handle.
Since these do not stand straight, I would use a cello bag filled with candy for the stuffing!

I have used Tilda with Cozy Heart from Magnolia. The paper is XOXO from American Crafts.

Thanks for looking today!

Oh Mr. Grey....

Hey there! Quick post today. I'm trying to get all my valentine cards posted!! Seems simply huh, but it's not. I am super busy this week. So much going on and so much to do.

This is actually a card front. I made it because I was framing it for the hubs. I love this image. Yes I was one of those people who got hooked on the 50 shades series. Yes I thought the writing was crap....but I wasn't reading it for the writing!!! 

This is a Digi from Saturated Canary, but you can get it in rubber now as well. The paper is Devoted from Carta Bella. Love this line! The colors are beautiful. I grabbed the sentiments from a valentine set by The Greeting Farm.  The Die is from La La land Crafts - love those hearts.

Thanks for looking!

Fairy wishes....

Note:  This is my second post today. Scroll down to see Shy Fairy from Some Odd Girls latest release...

I guess I am having a Fairy kinda week.  My earlier post was all about Fairies as is this one!

I used Summer Flower Tilda from Magnolia. She is so sweet, love how her little legs look, kinda bowed out.  I used copics to color her and did a dotted background. I just grabbed some random colors that I saw in the papers I was using and layered them on. I was so excited that I was finally able to use that ribbon! I bought it so long ago and never had something that it would look right with. It's gorgeous and went perfectly, IMO, with this paper! ;-)

Thanks for looking today and remember to scroll down to see Shy Fairy from Some Odd Girl!

Love you!

Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was fantastic. The weather was gorgeous, my house stayed clean this week so I had alot of me time.  Not to mention we enjoyed some company with friends.  For Superbowl we kept it low key this year and just stayed home. I made a few Sm. appetizers and we just hung out with the family. Perfect end to a great weekend. Ravens won to boot!

I must admit I haven't been a fan of the latest Maggies coming out. Gasp....I know..I know. But I did LOVE this cutie.  I think it was the ONLY one I bought from that line...which is so not like me!! :-)

This maggie is called Tilda with Heart.  She is colored with Copic markers. The paper is Devoted from Carta Bella.  Love the colors in this line.

Thank for looking today. I have lots coming up this week, so check back often! ;-)
