Not your typical card box

A close friend to Dave and I asked if I can make a card box for her and her huband's 20th wedding anniversary/vow renewel ceremony.  I had 2 ideas in my head and decided with the 2nd idea.  Stacked books!  I tied in the titles of the books to their names and their children's names and even threw in their 1st wedding photo for wow factor.  Needless to say, the couple loved it and could not believe what they saw.  My friend was on the verge of tears.  That is the best price anyone can pay me when giving them something like this.  Someone's appreciation is all I hope for when I make something for them.  So naturally the night turned out be a fun time with friends who are practically family. It was a magical seriously, they had a magician there!! He was awesome but when he tried his magic on me, it wasn't happening! He couldn't guess my card right and tried to convince me that I saw the card he guessed. No buddy! hahaha Anyway, another toast to the happiest couple:   Happy 20 years to you Lee and Silvia!!

Mmmmk so here are the list of products used:

And I leave you with a moment from last night... epitome of love!

Gift wrap on crack?

Usually the people I gift to don't care about wrapping paper but the select public (crafters) who know how much time goes into what seems to be a crack induced kick of gift wrapping would know that packaging sometimes is a gift in it self.  Aparently all I had was Christmas gift wrap, a bunch of stamps, and my arsenal of TPBP goodies.  I think I did pretty good for christmas wrap...see for yourself LOL.

Items used for card: 
candy gems in clear (blue out of stock)

See the stamping?? 

Items used for box topper:
tutu trim in beige (it's hard to tell but it's around the base)

I also made a couple of fabric cards.  Totally love fabric anything!!!

Items used for this card:

Love the Unity stamp I used.  The girl is just adorable!!

Mini album in Kerr jar!!!

Hi everyone!! Hope you all are having a good summer and staying cool.  Today I am showing my mini album in a jar.  I didn't find much online about this so I just winged it with the binding.  I think it came out cute.  I must try another one with a bigger jar.  This will be my eye candy in my office.  I am free to decorate my office how ever I like.  I've thought about a "Decorate my office challenge" but there seems to be so many other challenges out there right now...don't know if the crafty public are all challenged out.

Sleeping girl mixed media canvas

June came too soon!!  But here I am with another DT project for TPBP.  This one was a fun one because I wanted to try something new and it came out great! Using cheese cloth and Bev's laces as the background created a very unique background with elegant texture.  A definite must try!!  I used molding paste as an adhesive for the cheese cloth and laces, works wonders!! 

The Z's are made of burlap string!! I added some glue and sprinkled some Donna Salazar Fairy dust glitter in pralines and cream for a shabby flair.

The girl is wearing a floral wreath of Shaved Ice by Stampendous and ribbon roses distressed with vintage white acrylic paint.  Behind her head are some pearl sprays for an angelic touch.

I used Shabby pink embossing enamel by Stampedous to tone down the color of the acrylic flower spray and it also gives it a shabby distressed look.

Products used:
Webster's pages gold lace The other one is temporarily out of stock.
Bird in flight in grey blue White temporarily out of stock.
