A mailbox

Here is the newest craft posting.  My daughter needed to to create a mailbox for her valentine cards (crazy 4 challenges) to be delived to at school for her valentine party ( pennys challenges). I have entered many challenges with this projects. Here is an overview of what we have done.

We used a shoebox and cut the cover in half. hotglued paperbags to cover it the outside and made only half of the cover openable. cut heart shapes (die cut) and a flag out of k & co paper (color throwdown) and attached the flag with a brad ( practacle scrappers) to make it moveable. As you can see the handle is made of hemp with beads that spell A-N-G-E-L. The key is a toy my daughter had that I added a braided keychain with beads (that I had thought about tossing at one point.) It is removeable from the mailbox. I cut a slit in the box to slide it in and out. The bottom half of the box has ribbon around it with flower stickers, Angels name, and hearts glued on. The top of the mail box has hearts Angel cut out of paper and stickers.. I think it came out better then how I envisioned it lol.

Mom's Birthday

I'm late with this card. My mom's birthday is January 1st. We thought she was going to make it out to visit, but that isn't going to happen so I decided to send a card. Better late then never. Today I took a trip to Joanns and bought all kinds of scrap booking goodies! (I got a gift card from my neighbor for christmas!) Paper is K&Company. 360 12x12 pages for $19.99! Has some really cute designs too! It's hard to see but the clear thing in the corner says sweet. I'm really not sure what it is exactly, but it's a CTMH product. The cupcake is one of Penny's Creations digital stamps. This one really is my favorite! I have entered a few challenges with this card. Winter Wonderland, Secret Crafter, Scrap and Stamp, Crazy 4 challenges, CPS.

army accordian album

This album came out pretty cool I think! I made this to send to Rodney's mother for Christmas. Just thought I'd surprise her and send it. It has photos for the last year. From dec 2008 to Dec 2009. There are photos and captions on both sides of the album. I have entered this in the following challenges: Penny's Challenges, Creative Inspirations CB, Strap and Stamp, and Practical Scrappers. (it's not christmasy, but is a christmas gift-hope it counts...)

Accordian photo albums

These two albums are exactly the same, just different color ribbon. I made these for some of my neighbors. The theme I was going with these are to look like "packages" Hence the brown paper bag, and the star shaped stamp paper. They are military spouses I am giving them to. I used cereal boxes, paperbags, ribbon, and colored cardstock. Very simple project. I actually made 3 tonight, but I'm saving the last for another post, as I'm going to add photos to it for my husbands mother. I entered these in the following challenges: Penny Challenges, Creative Inspirations challenge blog, Stamp, scrap, & Doodle Saturdays!

reindeer crossing

This card I used die cuts, stamps, ribbon, and liquid glass. I think it's cute, but something seems off. Maybe I should have used different color ribbon? Unsure what it is. This has been entered in Crazy 4 challenges, Practical Scrappers, Secret Crafter, and Simon Says.


Really simple card. I thought the little christmas cookies saying was cute. Use liquid glass to make cookies and gingerbread stand out more. Entered this card in Practical Scrappers.


Snow is deffinitly not something here in North Carolina, nor is it something I even care to see again, but making cards about it is fun! This card is entered in a few challenges. Simon Says, secret crafter, and crazy 4 challenges.
