M&M Matchbook

Always looking for little gifts to have on hand. I love the matchbooks because they are quick to make, and it's a little treat for someone too.

I punched the little flower to cover the staple up :)

Hope you are having a great week.


I used my dollar bird stamp again! Yup, used my Cricut to cut the brown swirl. I had some felt ribbon left from anothe SU project. I love the die and stamp from Papertrey's February release, can you tell???!!!
Thanks for looking

Cricut Butterfly

Another design cut from my cricut!

Cricut Flowers

I obviously have been paying more attention to my Cricut lately! I found this flower and just sized them on my Gypsey. I've had this shimmer paper from a pad I picked up at M's . Simple- I even left the sentiment off so I can keep it in my stash.

Hope you are having a great week.

Matchbox Gifts

These are a few samples I came up with for a customer who was looking for some ideas for a luncheon. I used the Matchbox die for the Bigshot. I used a few punches for the flowers and a cricut cartridge for the bird and the circle. Thanks for stopping by- Hope you are off to a great week!

Mini Gift Bag

I got a call from a gal who bought some of my cards at a craft show over the holidays. She needs some favors for her mom's 80th birthday party in the UK, about 90 of them. She wants to put them at each setting. So I worked on some ideas over the weekend, Here's one of the ideas I came up with. Hope you are having a great week!

Punched Flowers

I have seen some great flowers being made with several circular punches. I stopped by a thrift store by my kids school and found some old music sheet books. I used the scallop punch from SU and started layering them folded in quarters (sorry Tenia!).
The stamp I used was from M's dollar bin.
I layered the frame around the sentiment. Then, I added a little bling.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by.
