Wine & A Winner

I have a wine box to share with you today. When I go to a wedding I always give money to the bride and groom that way they can put it towards what they want. I like to give them something else to go along with it. How perfect is this wine box holding a bottle of their favorite wine?

I used papers from DCWV for this one  - they are from the Bella Armoire stack.
I cut the box and and hand cut the little square and rectangle shapes from the stack.

The little butterflies are from Creative Charms.

On my last post I showed you my Hot Box and Tag and offered up a giveaway. Thanks everyone for your comments!
I selected a winner and lucky number 13 won!

Congrats to Renee!

I will be sending over your SVG Cuts Gift Card via email. Maybe you will want to pick up some goodies this week so you can get Camp Smore SVG Kit free with purchase. Can't wait to start cutting these ~ perfect for my two little Cub Scouts.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

It’s Hot!

I hope everyone had a happy & safe 4th of July! I don’t know about your area but it sure was hot in Pittsburgh, PA. Here is a little project I crafted over the weekend. I am always looking for gifts for my 20/30 year old nieces and nephews. Gift cards can get a bit boring. With Summer Vacation coming up thought this gift would be prefect for some margaritas!

So normally I would just do a gift tag ~ see photo on left.
But instead I made the cute box in the latest SVG Cuts Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit (Free this week with Purchase!)
I just reduced all the elements down to fit the smaller bottle.
I also used the pen tool in Ecal to create panels for all the sides and cut Imaginisce paper on my Sizzix Eclips.

 Here is a close up of my tag - both are Freebies from SVG Cuts
The Pepper and Hot are a freebie from 8/29/11
The Tag is from 12/17/11

I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stops by my blog and Facebook Page!

How about a HOT GIVEAWAY?

Please leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner on Saturday 7/7 Noon for a $10.00 SVG Cuts Gift Card!

A cool tool!

Hey everyone. I tried a cool new tool on my latest Shadowbox Collage.
Thanks to Tamara Tripodi - Happy Life Crafty Wife who sent me a super cool

It worked perfect!

I printed out my wording and used the tool. It was really easy and I just love the look of this compared to regular print on paper. I used the square 25 tool.

I made this for a lovely lady at work who retired. She loves her family, home, gardens and will now be making a few more trips than usual to the local casino. :)
Aren't these papers pretty? They are Hello Sunshine by Bo Bunny. So bright and cheery.

Here is a look at the flowers. They are from SVG Cuts Every Day Cards.

Speaking of Tamara ~ she just opened up a new online store called Paper Play Studio. Stop by her store to check out the great flair sets. I just picked up a few sets and can't wait to give them a try. Stop by her FB Page here. She is having a great giveaway - if you decide to enter please use code: to sign up.

Happy Crafting!
