TRUFFLE GIFT BOXES



      These gift boxes were decorated using scrape papers and odds and ends from my stash.  The boxes are from Martha Stewart and measure  3" x  3".  She calls them Chocolate Truffles.
     The boxes as well as the papers are available at Scrap N Create


All four sides are decorated.  This one using odd stamps  from Graphic 45 Paper Dolls collection.


The frog is one of my paper characters.  They are made from cardstock, mounted on wires or toothpicks so they stand up.  Papers are Natures Sketchbook by Graphic 45.

                                 Papers are from Paper Dolls collection by Graphic 45.  Flowers are silk flowers from Michaels.  The grass is made using Tiny Tattered Floral die by Tim Holtz.

                                           Papers are from Paprika by Photo Play.

Not sure where these papers came from.  Ribbon from Michaels.

PHOTO WALLET


Today I'm posting my 'PHOTO WALLET' with a shaker top.  It measures 4" x  6" and is cut from one sheet of 12" x 12" paper.  The original design  is by Kathy Clement and can be found HERE.
I used the Sizzix Ornate Frame #2.  The flowers are from Petaloo and are also available at Scrap N Create.


The papers I used  are  the 'Floral Shoppe Collection' from Graphic 45.  You can purchase the entire kit from Scrap N Create HERE.
First opening has place for two 4" x  6" photos.



Then opening further there is  another 4' x  6" photo mat at the bottom.  The center is closed off with two doors being held closed with a paper clip I designed using stickers from the collection.


Close up of the center of the wallet.  This is a mat decorated with a 'Happiness' ephemera card.  More of the removeable  paper clips are attached to the pocket.


Here's the entire wallet opened up.  


Close up of the two sided tags that fit into the side flaps.  They measure 2 1/2 "  x   3 1/2". The eyelash yarn is from my stash.

ATC TAG ALBUM


I created this ATC CARD ALBUM using a new digital kit from Snickerdoodle Designs called 'This Is Me - June'.  It measures 4 1/4" x  6 1/4" with a 1 1/2" spine.  I used my Zutter 'Bind It All' to bind it all together.


I cut out eight pages from chipboard with the Graphic 45 regular tag die.


     I selected the backgrounds I wanted from the kit and put them on  5" x 7" templates along with smaller elements for fussy cutting.  All the edges are burnished with both Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and Brocade Blue ink by Stampin' Up.



I printed the flowers from the kit and cut them with the Flower Metal Dies from Graphic 45.


Samples of the pages before adding embellishments.







Pics of the pages with the embellishments.  The photo mats measure 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 and are matted on both sides.  I coated all the flowers throughout the album with Wink of Stella to add some shimmer.  Pearls are from my stash.


And here's the back.

POCKET CARD FOLIO


     I created this 'Pocket Card Folio' with papers from the Floral Shoppe Collection by Graphic 45.  The entire collection is available at Scrap N Create.  The thing I like most about this kit is the beautiful ephemera cards and it has a huge sheet of stickers.
     Folio measures 4 1/4" x  8 1/4" and has a 1/4" spine.  All the edges are burnished with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The ephemera card on the front is mounted on pink cardstock.


     This is the inside showing the photo mats and pocket with another photo mat.


     Here's the card opened up.  Pam Higgins  from Design Wishes has a great tutorial on how to make this card.  You can find that on her YouTube channel HERE.


              The ephemera card on the back cover is also mounted on pink cardstock.

CUPCAKE



I first saw the video on how to make these cupcakes about four years ago.  Ms. Liberty had them as part of her 'Submission Project' for Graphic 45.  You can see the video HERE.  I fell in love with the EK petal punch and have used it in countless projects.


     I burnished all the edges of the flowers with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I used a 3 3/4" circle cardboard coaster as plate for the cupcake.  Glued it to a single glass candle holder to serve as base.  The cupcake base is made with a 9 oz. size paper cup and is 2" tall.
     Top half of cupcake is a 3" round Styrofoam ball cut in half.

ACCORDION FILE FOLDER


     This is a new 'Accordion File Folder'.  I used the same instructions from Splitcoast Stampers and template measurements as before.  However, this time I used a digital kit from Snickerdoodle Designs for all my papers and embellishments.  It's a darling kit called 'Forever Friends' and is available at Snickerdoodle Designs.


Here's the basic layout with the backgrounds.


                   These are the removable photo cards.  All the word art is from the kit.  All the edges are burnished with 'Gathered Twigs' Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.




Here's the other side of photo cards with a place for journaling .


     Here's all the album pages with their embellishments attached.  I added extra journaling squares on the bottom and extra small photo mats in the pockets.  The album measures 4 1/2" X 7 1/2".  Because of the extra mats I added a 1/2" spine.



     Here's a close up of the word art on the front.  I added Wink of Stella to the words for a little extra sparkle.  The silk flowers are by Prima and Petaloo.

MATCHBOOK BOX




     This is the Deep Square Matchbook Box by Graphic 45.  I chose to decorate it with 'Moments In Time' paper collection from Photo Play.  The paper collection and box are available at Scrap N Create.



I began by burnishing all the edges.  I covered the open square with cardstock as I needed a solid top.



Then I measured the sides, top and bottom inside and out and covered them with the 'Moments In Time' papers.  I used the paper scrapes to punch out the flowers with a floral punch by EK.  All the edges on the box and the flowers are burnished with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.


This is the front of the box.  All the hardware came from my stash.


Here's a close up of the cluster of flowers and tag.  The tag is a cutout from the collection.  The pearls are from Michaels and attached with Art Glitter glue.  Ribbon and yarn are from my stash.  I made the large rose with 'Tattered Florals' die by Tim Holtz.


Both sides and the back panels are decorated with 'Fancy Flourish' die by Cherry Lynn Designs and the smaller flowers with their pearls.


Here's the top of the box.


                                         Here's a close up of the tag with attached key.


Photo of box opened to reveal small storage box I made inside.  Decorated with the same flowers and flourish die.


The box is a perfect place to store more flowers.
