Sky High

Good morning crafters!!  Its inspiration time over at The Cutting Cafe!!  I'm here to share with you my project for the 21st day of May!!  This week's project we were asked to play with any of the "Treat Cup Cards" which are soooo awesome to create and send!! I gotto tell ya though (because when its easy I tell you) I had a little bit of a tough time figuring out how to layer all the pieces together!  I struggled for a while then I realized.....Regina has a video!!! OMGosh, instant relief...LOL!!  Anywho, here's my project share:


I used the Hot Air Balloon file (there's 7 files in all); it also comes with a cut file for the box envelope to fit your treat cup card into but I have these clear top boxes so I just used one of them.  It will also fit perfectly into a small padded envelope.  


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog today!!  Head on over to The Cutting Cafe to see all the design team inspiration!!  Leave a comment for a chance to win FREE files from the cafe!!

Blessings & Craft Happiness!!

Let's Make It Legal?!??

Happy 7th day of the month ya'll!!  Have I told you how much I LOVE playing with the files from The Cutting Cafe!??  Love them!!

So, its inspiration time!!  This week's project is dedicated to the awesome printable background sets available at The Cutting Cafe!!  So first things first....I collect/hold onto/hoard EVERYTHING (well maybe not hoard...lol) and our project this week had to involve an item that we would normal throw away after use....so for this project I planned to use this:


because I just couldn't part with it any, it looked like something I could turn into "storage" in my craft space!  Instead I used it to create a gift for a young person's birthday (or older person) turning 21 or "feeling like" their 21!!


I used some of that lovely tear-drop pearl trim I love so much to trim the inside and outside front (below) of the container.  I also lined it with a stripe of that cushion you can line your kitchen cabinets with.  Ten nips of alcohol fit perfectly inside!!


Here's the gem.....its all about the printable background set!!  The sheet I choose has 21s all over it.  I printed on a sheet of vellum paper; I honestly envisioned that you would be able to see what was inside, its pretty close, I cut it to fit into the clear top of the box and decorated!!  Yaay!  

Love, love, love!!  Just a small disclosure...I don't condone alcoholism; however, I do believe that drinking can be healthy/recreational if done properly.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and checking out my post today!!

Blessings & Craft Happiness!!
