Sweet 16 Birthday Box

So, my oldest daughter turned 16 a couple of weeks ago.  We wanted to give her money to start her car fund, but wanted a cute and clever way to package it.  Here's what I did:


This was totally inspired by a fellow consultant who came up with this great idea!
I changed it up a bit by adding tags to each side, creating a pocket to slip money into.
Colors: Watermelon, Black, Baby Pink
Paper: For Always Paper Pack, Watermelon (retired)
Accessories: Liquid Applique, Black Glitter Buttons, Artiste Cricut Cartridge

February Stamp Camp Projects

Hello Everyone!
I know I've been MIA for quite a while.  Sorry for that.  Now that my children are getting older they have more activities than ever and I hate to miss them so creativity has taken a back burner for a bit.  My goal this year is to make more time for me and what I love to do, so hopefully there won't be any long absences in the future.
Now that I've rambled on a bit, let's get to the projects!  The first one is a fancy fold technique:

The picture doesn't do this technique justice.  It really is a pretty card!
Colors: Black, Slate
Paper Pack: For Always
Stamps: Pirouette Flair, Happy Birthday, Limited Edition
Accessories: White embossing powder
I decided to try something new this year.  I usually do a technique tag class every summer, but the preparation time for the class and time it takes for everyone to make all 10 tags is overwhelming.  This year, we will make one technique tag each month at stamp camp!  Here is the first one - Block Fill Technique:
Each tag comes with complete directions to attach to the back for future reference.
Colors: Creme Brulee, Black, Pear, Cotton Candy
Stamps: You're a Hoot
Until next time....
