A Cute Little Box

Good day all,
Only one more day of Sale-a-bration left. Tomorrow starts the new Mini Catalog. There are some great new items coming up.

Isn't this box cute?
I made it using the WildCard Cartridge from Cricut. I love how it came out.
Here's what you'll need:
Wild Card Cricut Cartridge, Pink Pirouette Cardstock, Pink Pirouette Ink Pad, Brown Satin Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Cardstock to use with the scallop circle punch, 1-3/8 and 1-1/4 circle punch. A piece of whisper white cardstock, the Priceless stamp set and the new transparencies that will be in tomorrow's catalog.

Have a great day!

Easter Basket

Good Monday all,
Kind of a blah morning. Not a good way to start the work week.

I used the 2-4-6-8 box method on this Easter Basket.
It's it cute?

You'll need the following supplies for today's projects

Pink Pirouette Cardstock and ink pad. Old Olive Cardstock, Corduroy Button brads, 1-1/4 circle punch, 1-3/8 circle punch, scallop circle punch, sweet stems stamp set, crop-o-dile (or something to punch holes for the brads) and the scallop edge punch.

Don't forget you only have 2 more days left to place your sale-a-bration orders.

Heres a video on how to assemble today's project:

Have a great Monday!

Pillow Box

It's Saturday. I have so much housework to do it's crazy.

Yesterday we received very sad news...My husbands Grandmother passed. We called her Great Nana Vital. Love You Great Nana.

Today's project is the Pillow Box die from Sizzix. I really love SU's Certainly Celery Designer Paper.
The stamp set is from Yummy and the ribbon is certainly celery. Don't forget Sale-a-bration ends in a few days. But the new Mini Catalog comes out Wednesday.

Punches, Punches, Punches

I have really started to love punches. I never was into them before, but now I love them. I can't get enough.

Today's card is all punches. You can add a sentiment on the bottom of the card or not. Whatever you prefer. I saw this really cute project a few weeks ago and I'm working on it. Hope to have it ready to post tomorrow.

Today's video I used Baja Breeze cardstock, Walk in the Park designer paper, Baja Breeze Ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Trio of Flowers punch, and not shown on either the video or the picture I rounded the corners.

Enjoy and sorry if the volume is not loud enough.

Another Matchbox

Well it's Monday again, man does the weekend fly. I really wish it would slow down.

Here's today's project using the matchbox die that is coming soon.

I just got Sweet Always designer paper and couldn't wait to try it out.

I used the matchbox die, Sweet Always DSP, Pink Pirouette Cardstock, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Regal Rose Ink and Cardstock, Matchbox Messages Stamp set, and a piece of transparency paper for the outside of the box. (note because the transparency paper that I use is to thick I had to do the score lines by hand).

Have a great Monday.

A Little Top Note and a short video...

Good morning everyone,
Today's project was inspired by a project on page 80 of the Stampin' Up! idea catalog.

I used chipboard and Tangerine Tango designer paper to cut out the Top Note and then used the new Matchbox Sizzix Die that is coming out in the April 1st Mini Occasions Catalog.
Stay tuned for a video on the how to assemble the matchbox as well as one on how to make this project.

I finally got my domain running. Someone already had the URL Creations by Christina, but I went to the next best thing...Creations with Christina. I'm very excited. You can still view my blog at the same address as before.

You may notice some crazy banners over the next few days on my blog. I'm just experimenting. I feel like a made scientist....bwahahaha

A quick video for today:

have a great day.

I love this little box. I used the Sizzix box #2 die. How cute is it?

One of the first sets of paper I purchased from SU was the Bella Rose paper. I felt a little need to use if yesterday and made 2 of these boxes. They'll be handy for a teachers gift with some treats inside.
