Poodle Crate…

Here’s a project that combines the Birthday Delivery Suite and the Wood Textures Suite with a happy result…

Isn’t this a great packaging idea for a gift?

Pretty sure my “littles” would love this one…

and a side view showing the crate “handles”…

This project was already tagged for someone special and was hand delivered yesterday.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

  • Ink:  Bermuda Bay
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits, 3/8″ Woven Ribbon Bermuda Bay, Wood Crate Framelits Dies, Glitter Enamel Dots, Cello bag 6″ x 8″ (trimmed to fit), Tear Tape

Digits

  • Pick two pieces of Wood Textures DSP that match and cut two crate sides.  Fold tabs and add Tear Tape to attach.
  • Cut poodle and gifts from Birthday Friends DSP with coordinating framelits and add to front of crate with SNAIL and dimensionals.

Hope this gives you a new idea on presenting your gift or treats.

We are on the road this week to witness a qualifying baseball tournament for our g’son, Jameson.  The Catalog Open House on Saturday this past weekend was a huge success and oh so much fun!  Was it an amazing amount of planning and work?   …You betcha!  So now I’m just going to sit back and relax at this ball park.  NOT!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

Farmer’s Market Crate…

There are so many times a small gift (hostess, thanks etc.) would be just the ticket…but what? …and how to package it?

Worry no longer my friend, SU! has come to the rescue with the new (available June 1st) Wood Words Stamp Set and Wood Crate Framelits Set…here’s just one idea of many I’ll be showing you…

A crate full of small notecards…

All packaged for giving…

How sweet is that little crate?  Over the next week or so I hope to show you just how versatile this set can be.  Lots of ideas coming your way!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Real Red Cardstock and Wood Texture DSP Stack
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Whisper White Craft
  • Stamps:  Wood Words
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Wood Crate Framelits Dies, Stitched Circle Framelits, 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon, 6″ x 8″ Cello Bag, Natural Grass, Florist Pick, White Embossing Powder

Digits

  • Cut two pieces of Wood Texture DSP.  Stamp flowers in Craft White Ink, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat.  Put crate together with multipurpose glue or Tear Tape.  Cover bottom of crate with Natural Grass.
  • Stamp “farmer’s market” on Thick Whisper White and cut out with Stitched Circle Framelit.  Cut Real Red Circle with next biggest circle framelit.  Glue together with multipurpose glue and add to side of crate with dimensionals.

  • These would be great for hostess gifts or small gifts for customers birthday or “just because” you can gifts for anyone you like!

Over the weekend I participated in the Crazy Crafters International Blog Hop as the Guest Designer.  Did you see it?  I can’t tell you how much fun I had discovering which one of my posts were picked to CASE and how they were tweaked.  Some amazing designers in that group for sure!

Next weekend I’ve been invited to join the Autism Matters Blog Hop.  That post will go up Saturday and I hope each of you will stop by.

Now that the retiring list has been published, my studio is upside down with retiring stamps and products being pulled and for sale.  There are some absolute favorites in there for me, but boy of boy do we have some awesome stamps and products coming in June!

Hope everyone had a wonder Easter weekend sharing it with those you love.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

especially for Sandy Stott who is having surgery today at Johns Hopkins…

Are you inky?…then you must be HaPpY!

It’s Not Fries…

No, this little fry box can be many things and if you check back this week, you will see several ideas for this little fry box.  Here is one idea…

IMG_1406

Today it’s a gift card holder…just because you are giving a gift card doesn’t mean you can “dress” up the presentation.  This cute little “fry box” is dressed for the holidays with DSP, satin ribbon, a coordinating tag and gift tissue.  The gift card envelope framelit was used to make a matching holder for the gift card.

But, what if you wanted to use it for gift enclosures that match your little “fry” box?

Here’s an idea for 3×3 enclosure cards that would make a thoughtful present for almost anyone.  The envelope was made with the Envelope Punch Board.  By using the same or coordinating DSP the whole set will match.

Do you have people on your gift list you like to give something personal and special?  This would be just the ticket.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff:

  • Paper:  Crumb Cake and Whisper White cardstock.  Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Lost Lagoon
  • Stamps:  Good Greetings and Wondrous Wreath (To: From:)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Fry Box Bigz Die, Scallop Top Punch, Linen Thread, 5/8″ White Satin Ribbon

Digits:

  • The DSP layer that wraps the box is 3″ x 10″
  • The DSP base tag is 2″ x 2 3/4″
  • The Whisper White cardstock for the tag is 2″ x 2 1/2″

Has this little box inspired some ideas of different boxes you might make?  Be sure to check back to see the next box…it’s for Halloween treats.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”I like to burn my bridges while I’m still standing on them so people know I’m serious about my crazy.”

Heavens knows I’ve burnt plenty of bridges in my day…

I’m inky…I’m HaPpY!
