Chalkboard Tags

I found these wooden tags at Impress and couldn't wait to get them home and paint them with chalkboard paint.  Now I'm all set for reusable tags for Christmas this year, I'm pretty excited about them!

Peacock Card Box

I love how this box turned out!  It is a recipe box, but thought it would be perfect to hold cards instead.  I just painted the edges, added the peacock paper and then Mod Podged the whole thing.  I added the sparkle flourishes to finish it off.

Paper Purses

I made these for a birthday party project for one of my club ladies.  They were made with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  The first one was made with the Clementine paper and the second one with the La Belle Vie paper.  I think they turned out adorable!

Pumpkin Prizes

These pumpkins turned out so cute!  I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and cut them at the relative size of 4.5" for both the pumpkin and the coordinating leaf.  I used some hemp to tie it all up and with a few treats inside them as my prizes for my card workshop.  Love them!

College Dorm Layout

I found a sketch idea book at Archivers that uses divided sheet protectors and I love the ideas in it.  Just because you are using a divided page protector doesn't mean that it can't be cute, because let's face it, cute matters.  I used the Scholastic paper and creates some extra design elements to the divided pages.  This is the day my daughter moved into her college dorm and I thought this paper worked out perfectly.
