Hugs and Kisses!

Happy Monday. It's my design day over at Jaded BlossomI have a treat box to share today using a stamp from the Perfect Match that was released in March.

I have seen many versions of this box out there using a sizzix die. I don't have that die nor a sizzix to use it in so I had to create my own version. 
The box opens on the bottom for easy filling of treats. I added scallop borders to the front and embossed them to look like ruffles on the dress. 
I then added sequins for the flowers at the waist. 
I hand cut the tag after stamping this wonderful sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Perfect Match stamp set. 

Have a crafty day!

Got Eggs?

Yup- aren't these little chicks cute. Just a few last treats for some friends on Easter. 
These need to travel well and far so these little packages of goodness are perfect to fit in my bag.
The chick is a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the "got eggs" is a sentiment from My Creative Time. 

I printed three layers for each chick. The whole chick itself, then just his body with face, and finally the beak. I attached the body to the whole image with foam tape and then glued the beak. 

This is a quick way to get that look of paper piecing without cutting all the tiny parts, especially when you are doing multiples. The pillow envelopes measure 2"x3" just enough room for a few Reese's eggs.

So,  I have one extra chick but no more pillow boxes and I really need 5 treats. Fortunately,  I had to make a stop at Walgreen's last night and saw this mini Ghirardelli package.

For this one, I used the Jaded Blossom Treat Topper Die.  Once I had my paper cut with the die,  I cut that in half and glued it right onto the candy package. The sentiment for this one is from the JB Easter Treats 3 and the grass is from the Spring Dies set. 

Now I have 5 treats for my 5 clients that are traveling with me today. 


Have a crafty day!!

Check Mate!

Happy Friday. It's my design day at SVG Cutting Files and I am working with a brand new file in the store today, Chess!
This set comes with several chess piece. I couldn't decide which to make for my project so I cut all of them and made a series of cards. I am warning you now, there are lots pf pictures in this post.

The base of each card is the Mini Notecard Bases set. I sized them to be 4" square.
I did a print and cut for the white mat and sentiment.

Each card has the common layers of card stock, white, red and black check so they all coordinate.

Then was the fun part, pairing up and deciding which game piece should be on which card.

Have a crafty Day!
