Kisses Jar from Jennifer

I had this idea in my head for awhile after seeing a bunch of mason jars decorated for different holidays.  With so much going on, I didn't know if I would get it done in time for Jennifer to give her Mama on Mother's Day but I just finished it.


I took a small mason jar and covered the lid with DSP and glued it to the rim so it would stay together when it was opened.  Then I adhered a piece of the same DSP around the middle of the jar.  For the front I glued on some gold letters spelling out "Mama" and popped up some flowers I had for decoration,


For the back I glued on more gold letters spelling out "Love".  I then filled up the jar with some chocolate kisses.


To finish it off, I tied a ribbon around the neck of the jar and used my Chalk Talk die cut for the tag.  I used my computer to type out:

Here's lots of Kisses from
Me when you need one.
Happy Mother's Day 
I Love You!
Jennifer 2015

I inked around the tag and tied it on the bow with some twine.  I just love how it turned out.  It has been a rough week around here with Jennifer going to Day Care.  Lots of tears, so I thought my daughter would like to put this on her desk at work.  The only other thing I wanted to do with it was have Jennifer's hand print on another tag as well, but with her in Day Care I didn't have an opportunity to get it done.  We are all going to her house for Mother's Day, so I think I will take my paint along with me and try and get it done to add on later.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Mother's Day Card

Well, the calendar says Mother's Day is this Sunday - boy did that sneak up on me!!  So I set out to make a few simple cards - quickly, so I could get them in the mail in time!!  I decided to use the Butterfly Thinlet stamp set again but used the smaller butterfly this time.


I had a different design in mind when I set out, but this is what I ended up with.  I was going to do some embossing and put the butterflies on one side, but I wanted my greeting on the front.  So, I decided to put some ribbon down one side and scatter my butterflies like they were flying around the greeting.


I was happy how they turned out.  I used Very Vanilla for my base card as well as for my layer.  The butterflies are stamped in Old Olive, Pretty and Pink and Wisteria Wonder and then die cut.  I used a Mother's Day greeting on the inside that I found years ago in the $ bin at Michael's.  The ribbon is half white and pink satin and I placed a few rhinestones on the butterflies to dress them up for the occasion!

It looks like we're going to have a beautiful weekend!  Everyone in the Pansy Patch would like to wish all the Mom's out there a very Happy Mother's Day!!

Birthday Card

I had another birthday card to make and decided to use the new butterfly thinlet set.  My youngest daughter's birthday was Monday and both she and Jennifer love butterflies.  I had seen this card on Pinterest knew they would like it.


Recipe:

Paper - Whisper White, Rich  Razzleberry
Stamps - Butterfly Thinlet Set, Outlined Occasions
Accessories - Embossing Folder
Embellishments - Rhinestones, ribbon

I started with an A2 sized card.  My layer of Whisper White was 4"x 5 1/4" which I embossed.  I love this embossing folder.  I have had it a long time and am not sure of its name.  It has cute little birds on it.  I then taped a piece of ribbon in the middle and adhered it to the base card,  My panel layers were 3" x 3 3/4" of Rich Razzleberry and 3 1/2" x 2 3/4" of Whisper White.  I stamped my greeting on the upper right corner and used dimensionals to adhere it to the base card.  I then die cut my butterfly using my drier sheet which made it pop right out.  I adhered it on the panel with some glue dots and applied some rhinestones.



For the inside I stamped my sentiment and used the small butterfly stamp in the set.  I also stamped my envelope with it as well.  I really liked how it turned out and she loved it!

We have some beautiful weather here this week.  A little warm but better than snow!!  Have a great week!

Happy Birthday Rachel!!!!

We had Rachel's family birthday party this past weekend, but today is the big day!!  It's hard to believe that 15 years ago we were waiting, and waiting, and waiting in the hospital room for her to come into the world.  And today she is 15 years old!!  I wanted to make a card just for her that she would like and she did!!


Recipe:

Paper - Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, DSP - Best Year Ever
Stamps - Teeny Tiny Wishes, Birthday stamp from Michael's $ bin
Ink - Stazon
Accessories - Striped Embossing Folder, Ruffled Trim
Punches - Modern Label, Scalloped Tag, Word Window, Cupcake Builder, Circle Punch

This card came together so quickly and I loved how it turned out.  I used some dazzling diamonds on the cupcake to give it some sparkle.


I decided to decorate the inside as well and punched out some of the DSP circles.



Happy Birthday Rachel!!!!
We Love You!!!

Box for EOS Balm

Do you love EOS??  I do and so do the girls!  When I saw this cute video, I knew it was exactly what I would make for the end of the year teacher's gifts.  For my practice run, I had a dark pink EOS so I used one of my favorite colors - Melon Mambo with pink Piroutte.


I didn't have the stamp she used, so I used a cute stamp I had purchased at Michael's $ bin awhile ago.  I actually cut the pieces out by hand and layered them with my dimensionals.


You could also use this box for other things by eliminating the holder for the EOS.


I really think this is such a cute gift idea!  Well, its back to cooking.  We are having the family party for Rachel's birthday tomorrow - hard to believe she will be 15 on Thursday!!!

Happy Easter!!

I almost forgot to post these cute little Easter baskets that I saw in the Silhouette store.  I asked my friend Denise if she could get them for me and we spent a fun morning putting them together.


I just fell in love with this cute little bunny!


Then I made this adorable little chick!


This little lamb was begging to be made, so of course I included it in my goodies!  I loved them so much that I made two of each!  All I have to do is put some grass and surprises in them and they are ready to go.  I am really impressed with how great the cameo does the cutting and scoring.  It is definitely on my wish list!

Well, lots to do - everyone in the Pansy Patch wishes you and your family a wonderful Easter!!

Milk Carton Egg Boxes

I just finished making some adorable boxes for my daughter to take to the Wellness Center.  I saw these cute boxes over on Pootles Blog and knew that they would be great for what I wanted to make.  I love her videos.  She does such a great job.



These came together pretty quick.  Tonight I'm going to make a few more to put out on the table for place cards - that is if I don't eat the rest of the chocolate eggs!!  I was able to use up some more DSP scraps and it also gave me an excuse to buy this Brights DSP which I really like.  Believe it or not we woke up to 3" of more snow yesterday morning!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this weekend will be sunny and warm for the Easter Egg Hunt!  This will be Jennifer's first egg hunt - she loves to play with all the plastic eggs.
