There was a resident's birthday where I work and I wanted to make her a little something, after all turning 94 is pretty amazing in my book. I made the MCT treat slider die and stuffed, and I mean stuffed, a $5 lottery scratch off ticket inside, it fits!!!
Had I thought better about it I would have stamped the inside of the box before I glued it together, but live and learn. I used a pastel rainbow of colors for the slider part of the box. Florally paper for the cupcake topper. I used the treat slider label die for the Happy Birthday, which was from the 3x3 card stamp set.
Tried to get a good pic of the glittery little heart I cut out with the heart dies, but it is so hard to capture the beauty of glitter.
This week for My Creative Time's Designer Challenge DT member, Kim, came up with a fun Tic Tac Toe board to create a project with. This is the Tic Tac Toe board and I used "Use a Die", "Button" and "Pattern Paper" for my project.
Thanks to videos from MCT DT members I learned how to shorten die cuts to fit my choice of sentiment and I love this die from the treat slider box. My button is the small flower button from the button dies. I tried to put the twist string through, but my needles are missing, and my twist came undone, so I just used the green. I used the pattern paper with little flowers and glitter on it from DCWV. I tied the whole box shut with the twisted string and tied a bow. It is such a cute gift for someone special.
For MCT's designer's challenge this week we are asked to link up a project that is Spring related and has a die cut on it. This LO I completed is fun and colorful representing Spring.
I love to color eggs with my kids, but I am also the photographer, heehee. I used my Gypsy to weld and cut out the letters, which is why I love my Gypsy so much, pray that nothing ever goes wrong with it.
My keepsake is a cute little snip of hair tied with a pink gingham ribbon. My daughter got a hold of her first snippets when I wasn't looking and they are no longer with us, lol, but I had this from her second, much snipped off, haircut.
Not the best pic due to lighting and too lazy to get camera out, so I used my phone.
Totally behind in scrapping my life, it gets hectic out here, but I miss these days of her being so young!
