Catch-up crafty post

I promised to post a few crafty things I made during my long blog break, so here they are in one post.


A tiny "Tucked Away" tote with candy for a teacher gift.

I love that patterned paper-and it goes well with the acorn stamps!

I don't know what I was thinking when I put these colors together...and what's up with the un-adorned chipboard bird?


Isn't this tree great? I forget who makes it, but these colors at least go well together!

One of my ideas for a holiday card but too much trimming was involved for mass production. Adding punch berries was fun though.

Changed it up a bit for an everyday card (using white instead of cream).

Here they are together in all their glory!~


I needed to make a few chinese auction gifts for the Chritmas bazaar at my children's school, so I turned to some blogs for inspiration. These are cased from Dawn McVey.

More cased cards...Nichole Heady and Dawn McVey?

This one is a case of Dawn again.

Tried making Nichole Heady's gift tag tin and it was so much fun I wanted to keep it for myself!

Two cased note pad holders for the bazaar. Left one cased from Debbie Olsen, right one from Dawn McVey.
So there you have it. A sampling of some of my paper-crafty projects since October 2009. Stay tuned for regular updates.
