Crochet Flowers With Matching Box

I made a cute little for putting the crocheted flowers in.

Here's a close up of a paper flower I made using the Floral Frames Framelits. I cut 3 out and stacked them together to form a 3D flower.

The ribbon holds the box together. It is not attach to the box so it can be easily slide in and out.

I crocheted 2 roses for my friend. One pink and one red. I know she likes red but not too sure about the pink colour. They look good together in the box though.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Happy Stamping!

Flowery Birthday Cards

I tried something new this weekend. I made 2 birthday cards with cut out flowers from the Secret Garden stamp set.

 This card has pink flower on it. I used a pink marker to colour the flower.

 This card has a white flower on it. I got lazy and didn't want to colour the flower. I like the way it is.

 I stamped the flowers twice for each flowers and then cut them out. Did some bending to them and then layer them together. Very pretty! I love it a lot. They need to be put into a larger envelope because of the raised flower. The regular A2 size envelope will not fit.

Thank you for visiting today! Happy Stamping!

Globe Thank You Card

Hi, stampers! Not much stamping done lately. I was sick for almost 2 weeks. Another flu. Sigh! This is my fourth one this year. Couldn't get clean my house all those days.

Anyway, I'm happy I was able to get some card making this past weekend. I had the globe image sitting on my desk for awhile and finally made a card with it. Just a simple card but I love it because it is in blue colour.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Story Tags

Hi stampers,

As you all know, my DH has an etsy store that sells tags. Price tags, labels etc. for crafts and pricing things. Just a few weeks ago he was asked for a custom cut order of thick mat board circles. It was just an ordinary tag order but had to be rushed. Anyways, he fulfilled the order and shipped it to the destination earlier than expected. Today he got a letter detailing to him what the tags were used for. To make a long story short here is a quote of the letter he got and some pics. 

"Martin - forgive the time it took for me to get back to you. 
Enclosed are a couple of pictures. We are a children's 
program for kids who have had someone in their family die.
We used your discs to tell the story of the death - and then
decorated a container for the story - - I hope the pics are 
explanatory -"

Needless to say this has brought tears to our hearts. We just wanted to share with you the good that some people are doing for children that suffer loss in this world. 
Thank you for stopping by! 
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Baby Thank You Cards

Happy Friday everyone! I made a set of baby "thank you" cards for an upcoming baby shower.  Mothers always need a "thank you" to thank people for all the gifts for the baby.

The design and layout are the same for both cards. Only the card base is in different colours. Aren't the little baby bear cute? I love it! I used SU markers to colour the bears.

Family Camping Journals

Happy Canada Day!

Hello, stampers! I just got back from my family annual camping trip. We do this every year with my side of the family. We went to Cultus Lake this year. There were 27 of us and that was not all that was present. Jarod and a few others didn't come this year. We had to book 4 sites still and the sites at this camp ground were smaller than the other sites we've been too. We had a good time even though the sites were small. The kids went to a waterslide park but I didn't get to go. I was not a happy camper then but today I realized I probably wont enjoy it anyway. I'm afraid of heights and I saw a few slides that you have to climb up to the top before you slide down and they were pretty high. I'm glad I didn't get to go. God knows me better than I know myself. He was taking care of me.

Faith loves to write about her trips and every year she asks me to make one for her. This year she gave me at least a week notice. Other years she would ask me to make it the day before.

This year I only made 2. One for Faith and one for Hope. Here is the inside of the journal. I stamped every pages. I used the Under the Stars and Backwoods stamp sets. There is this new The Great Outdoors stamp set in the catalogue that I want to get from Stampin'Up! It has everything in this set that is perfect for the camping journals.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Canada Day!
