Toy Box Fun

Happy Saturday!

Can you believe it is almost the end of August already! Yikes!!

Today, I have a layout to share with you:
My little girl loved climbing inside the toy box and playing with her toys!
It was so funny, sometimes she would get stuck head first in the toy box! 

It would be WAY too easy to sit next to the toy box and play with the toys! hehe

Have a lovely day!

For My Friend with IBS

Hello Stamping Friends!

Can you believe it is the last Friday of the month?!
Yikes, where did August go!
Back to school for my kiddos next week!

I have a super fun card to share with you today using some fun Inspired By Stamping stamps!!
I used the new Forever Friends stamp set!

Love the floral image along with the fun brush stroke in the set!  Makes creating a fun card like this fast and easy!!  No need to always color in your images!

I also love the beautiful sentiment in the set!  Love the font!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

With a new school year right around the corner this week on the GI Blog it is all about:
Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

With that in mind I decided to create a pillow box with some yummy chocolate inside!!
I used the fun new Happy Day (E842) sentiment.

A great sentiment for cards, but also fun to use for candy packages!!

I paired her up with a sentiment from the Simple Greetings set!

I also added a little cluster of flowers and leaves!
Just love the SweetCuts Mini Flower and Fancy Leaf!!

Hydrangea Gift Box with IBS

Happy Friday Sweet Stamping Friends!!

I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog today sharing a beautiful 3D Gift Box with you!

I am so excited to share this with you!!
I just love creating 3D Projects!

With summer being so crazy, I don't get a chance to create many, but recently I was able to sit down and create this gift box to give someone for their birthday:
I just LOVE the collection of stamps I used from Inspired By Stamping to create this!!

The "for you" and "happy birthday" sentiments are part of the Creative Tags set!
In which I die cut using one of the dies from the Fancy Labels 3 Die set! (I LOVE this die set!!)

For my main image, I used the hydrangea from the beautiful Graceful Hydrangea set!!
Such a beautiful image!!
Behind the image, on the green paper I clear embossed one of the pretty Vintage Background stamps!

Now for a look inside:
I didn't realize I don't currently have tissue paper, otherwise I would have had some in the box!

Again I used the Fancy Labels 3 Die for this layered label, along with a sentiment that  is part of the Birthday Greetings set!!
I also added two butterflies from the Butterfly Wings set!

FUN!!

A Little Hello with GI

Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

It's my day to post on the Great Impression Stamps Blog once again!

It is so hard to believe summer is coming to an end!

With that in mind, I decided to use some fun summery images for my card today!!

I love flowers and butterflies, so that is the theme for this card:
For my main image I used Growing Tall Flowers (F358)!

Such a fun image, that can be colored so many different ways, I decided to just color them yellow!

I used the partial A Little Hello (B151) sentiment on my die cut banner. 

I also added the sweet Flitting Butterflies (A32) above my sentiment on the card base!!
