Masculine Gift Box

Having 2 boys means I'm always having to think of creative ways to make masculine things. My son was off to yet another party and I had to create a card.  These days all the kids want to give are gift cards.  Works for me no bows, bags, wrapping paper... just a wee card load with a few bucks!
 
One of my new favorite dies is the Tim Holtz Pillow Box Die.  You'll be seeing a lot of this die in the coming weeks.  It holds gift cards perfectly!
 
Cutting on grunge board the H & B from the Word Play die, paint it black then I mounted it on my gears border die cut with acetate. 

 
This Pillow Box Die comes with 3 labels.  So I used 2 of them and stamped from Scrappy Moms Stamps this "For You" from Hooray for Birthday's set.
 
 
I cut 3 of gears again on grunge from the Movers and Shapers wee gears and the middle gear from the Gadget Gears die:)  Some embossing powder and glitter finish it off.  This Pillow Box can fit multiple cards.

 
You can also run the pillow box cut through your favorite embossing folder.  Then add a little ink to make it pop.

 
It's a great way to give gift cards, money or small treats.  What boy wouldn't want to get this along with some cash to go towards a favorite video game!
 
Thanks for popping in and checking out my Masculine Gift Box:)

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
