    Pillow Gifts from my Michigan Trip.

    Pillow Gifts from my Michigan Trip. You guys know I love giving things to my friends, including Pillow Gifts from my Michigan Trip. I had two roomies, so I could no resist giving these super cute “bags”. These were originally made in Mystery Card Night back in September. That one however had handles. This one I left them off.

    Pierced Blooms and Sweet Strawberry Scalloped Box.

    Pierced Blooms and Sweet Strawberry I love making hand crafted gifts, especially like this Pierced Blooms and Sweet Strawberry box. If you have not gotten the Pierced Blooms dies, ohhh man!! Seriously these are amazing… The pierced look to them adds amazing texture. I love to layer them together. And no there are NO rules on which to layer together!! That is a thought… We should cut out a bunch and see all the different combos we could make. Anyway, in addition to the Pierced Blooms, I also added the Sweet Strawberry stamp set. Yes, the Just for you is kinda hiding, but it is stamped in Evening Evergreen. Ohh,…

    Deck the Halls with Light

    The trio of paper lanterns for Christmas. The Christmas is Gleaming bundle (153006) is on low inventory (at time of post). So, I thought I would post quick. I have seen the lanterns in several shapes, I did triangles. Stitched Shape Circles for the two smaller and Nested Labels for the larger. Each uses a full sheet of cardstock, just the heights vary. All three decorated just slightly different. Colors are the same. I know you see the DSP and it is already no longer available, I am sorry! However, you could put a layer of Pretty Peacock that is embossed and add some frost shimmer paint on the raised…
