Match Box

Hi everyone, this is the other thing I made for Tori's birthday. Its a cute little box, which has sixteen little draws for all her bits and pieces. The original idea I saw on another web site somewhere. Its made totally from match boxes, sixteen of them! So as you can imagine I have so many spare matches because I've made a few of these now. This one is made from the larger size, but it looks just as great with the smaller boxes.

Each blank panel I decorated with some bling, brads hold the ribbon in place so you can open the draws.

Lots of flowers, pearls and a butterfly covered in white glitter decorate the top. The butterfly is cut from Indie Art cricut cartridge.

             She loved it!

Birthday Card

This card I  made for my daughter who recently turned 14. The ice cream stack is from the  "Once Upon a Princess" cartridge and the paper is   Kaiser "All Sorts".

She loved the bright colors and large brad on top of the flowers


 I made a few more things for her which I will add tomorrow.
Bye for now

Welcome to my Blog

Hi Everyone, welcome to my first post........ For most of my cards, I use the "Cricut"! This is a card I made for my niece who turns 21 today. The balloons are cut using Celebations, embossed with the cuttlebug and then sprinkled with lots of glitter. Square shape cards are probably my favourite to make because I can pile lots of stuff on.
Just realised it co-ordinates beautifully with my blog background!

Inside the card I stamped the balloon.

Happy Birthday Ashleigh!

Bye for now Tracey
