Happy Monday!

Well I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend! I sure did.....a busy one...but nevertheless it was fun! Friday was my Stampin' Up party! We had so much fun! My consultant Kersten was AWESOME! It was a good turn out...and my mom even got hooked on stamping and card making.....my mom has always stayed far away from paper crafting (even though I have tried many times to bring her over to the dark side) so I am so excited that she is joining the cult...I mean club! Hee hee! We made the following two cards at my party:
The next card is my FAVORITE...I am so ordering these two sets...they are a MUST have! This is so MY STYLE!!!! I love the swirls!!!!!
Today I finished a work in progress! The day I was creating all of the card holders I started this one! I still had to decorate the outside though. Of course this is a Wish On A Scrap creation! This was created with items from my August kit. The pink paper behind the sentiment is a custom creation....I created my own glimmer mist again with perfect pearls and re-inker! The color was BEAUTIFUL! Then I took the chipboard swirls from my kit and painted them white and used my custom glimmer mist to add a little bit of pink and shimmer to them! I used my Fiskar corner punch to add that little bit of girliness to the card holder. I love how this turned out! Don't forget to run over to Wish On A Scrap....Loreen just released the preview of the September kit and let me tell you she out did herself again....this one looks fabulous!!!!
And of course we need an inside view:

Next is a box I whipped up quick on friday for my sister. I made one of the bracelets from the previous post for her and wanted a box to put it in to surprise her with. She loves the vintage look and black and white so what better paper to use for this awesome gift box! I love everything about this box....I almost didn't want to give it away because I liked it so much!
And below is the little card that I put inside with the bracelet.

Today I was busy decorating this cardboard box that I bought from Hobby Lobby last week. I was busy blog hopping last week when I came across THIS! I was so inspired that I wanted to take my pencils out of their container and make them more accessible to me! Plus I do like having the tips in sight to pick a color! I of course wanted to keep my pink and brown color combo going...so I found this DCWV paper in my stash that was perfect for my project! My hubby helped me notch the foam board on the inside so that I have separate compartments for my color families! This takes up less space on my desk that my big old prisma container too!

And here is the view from the top where you can see my foam board separators. I did cover the inside sides with pink paper as well! Hope you enjoyed my lastest creations.....be on the watch for blog candy that will be up for grabs later this week!
