Summer Garden Tote Gift Set!

Make this super sweet Summer Garden Tote Bag as a Thank You to that special friend. The coordinating Covered Notepad and Pen are simple but functional gifts that fit neatly inside the Tote. And, of course, the Thank You Card is a must to top off a perfect gift! In this tutorial you’ll also learn an essential tip – the perfect ‘stay put knot/bow’ – you’ll never tie a knot or bow any differently after learning it!

Bohemian Stationary Deskstop Organizer!

This bright and bold desk organizer is complete with 10 note cards, 10 envelopes, 12 gift card holders, and 12 gift tags. The organizer keeps it all nice and neat and ready for the next occasion that you need to send a little note. The drawer in the organizer is the perfect place to keep the twine for the gift tags and thread for the gift card holders. Not to mention stamps or other items. There is just enough room in the organizer to hold all these goodies and leave a space perfect for a pen. Put together this lovely desk organizer for yourself or give it as a gift to someone who could use a note card or gift tag in a hurry!

A World of Thanks for a Challenge!



I made this card for the Sketch Challenge over at Craft Project Central. I Love the new 'A World of Thanks' background stamp, so I thought I'd try to stamp parts of it and make it work this Sketch Challenge.

Not sure it's one of the most favorite cards I've made, but I do Love the Pretty Petals Designer Papers too - they are super sweet! 

Here's the Sketch that I was following:

Summer Fun Craft Party!

It’s summer! The kids are out of school and looking for something fun to do, so how about throwing a craft party? Send a cute “Summer Funday” invitation to your children’s friends, create a craft pack with basic supplies for each attendee, and let their imaginations take over. The cute whirly ladybugs are fun and simple to create, and preparation is a snap with the Big Shot and Circles Collection Framelits. The invitation uses simple marker techniques to customize photopolymer stamps. This would also make a fun Kids’ Stamp Camp or class.
