I made these mini Wedding gift boxes using the the WE R MEMORY KEEPERS GIFT BOX PUNCH BOARD on the smallest size. It was so easy and so much fun to do. They would be great for the little Thank you gifts on the tables for wedding guests :-)

My daughter asked for a "Frozen" themed birthday Party this year, so I came up with this idea for loot / lolly bags. To make these I used the Quickutz PLACE CARD die for the background, Quickutz SNOWFLAKES 4x4 die, and the Cottagecutz snowman die. Also some jewels for the center of the snowflakes and some gorgeous blue and white polka dot ribbon. My sons birhtday party is the day after my daughters so the theme he has chosen in "Minecraft" so I hand cut out some black sticker paper into the shape of the creeper face and stuck them onto green noodle boxes. So simple to make and he loves them :-)

Valentines Day is coming up this week so I decided to try and make a valentines day card for my hubby :-) The card measures 8" x 6" (a A4 page folded in half).
I used the following dies - QUICKUTZ EXCLUSIVE SKUNK 4x4 Die - C-0226-S, LIFESTYLE CRAFTS HEART DOILY 4x4 Die - DR0241, LIFESTYLE CRAFTS NESTING RECTANGLES Die set ( the largest size rectangle for the background)- L-CC-006, QUICKUTZ DISCO 4X8 ALPAHBET SET, for the writing on the inside of the card "Love is in the air". Sorry about the bad photos, as the black did not photo well with the flash. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE :-)

Its been a little while since I made a scrapbooking page so I sat down today and did a simple page of my 3 precious children, using a couple of my newest Dies to my die collection :-)
I used the QUICKUTZ EXCLUSIVE 'YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS' DIE C-0179-S-REV which I inked with distressed ink before assembling it. I must admit that the rose was not the easiest die I have ever assembled as it was hard to see where all the pieces went, but I think it turned out ok in the end :-) The heart was made using the LIFESTYLE CRAFTS / QUICKUTZ 'HEART DOILY' die, and for the title I used the QUICKUTZ 'DISCO' 4x8 alphabet.

I did a single page layout of my Husband and his Brother using photos which I took of them just before his brother’s wedding. I found it very difficult to take a serious photo of them and maybe it was just their nerves, but I couldn’t help thinking that maybe the saying ‘boys never ever really grow up’ seemed so true at that moment and even though they look like men, they will always be boys at heart :-) In my layout I used the COTTAGECUTZ PENGUIN DIE SC-CC-009 because I always thought that the suits they were wearing reminded me of penguins. I also used:- QUICKUTZ DISCO ALPHABET FONT 4X8-DISCO-M (ON SALE NOW - HAVE A LOOK IN STORE) QUICKUTZ OLIVIA ALPHABET NUMBERS QUICKUTZ SIGN RS-0265 QUICKUTZ CLOUDS BORDER DIE CC-BDR-032, QUICKUTZ TREES BORDER DIE CC-BDR-018, TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS INKS (VINTAGE PHOTO & WALNUT STAIN)

This is a double page layout that I did of my daughter on Christmas Day. She was given this cute little outfit by our friends and she wore it permanently so I thought this would be a great layout to document how much she loved this little outfit and the perfect opportunity to use the QUICKUTZ DOLLS REV-0193-D.
this layout, I have also used the following dies & products:- KAISER CRAFT PEARLS for the centers of the flowers, KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES for the buttons on the dolls dress & hair ties, TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS INKS, SIZZIX DECORATIVE ACCENT, QUICKUTZ 12” TREE CC-BDR-021, QUICKUTZ LIMITED EDITION CIRCLES REV-0072, QUICKUTZ NESTING FLOWERS CC-SHAPE-6-017, and finally for my title I used the classic 2x2 QUICKUTZ ZELDA ALPHABET die set.
