SSSCT-Christmas Shadow Box Card

Happy Tuesday Krafters!
I'm here to share another Scrappin' with Sharon & SmokeyCreative Team project with you! For this project, I used file RM00113. I thought the ornaments in this file were perfect for an array of crafts! In this particular file, there are three different ornaments, but for this card, I am only using one.
About a year ago, I saw a tutorial on YouTube for a peek-a-boo card. It reminded me of a shadow box. I customized it a bit and the shadow box card was born! I hope you enjoyed today’s card! Don’t forget to check out the store for more awesome cut files. Thank you all so much for stopping by my spot. I hope you were able to kick back and relax for a while. Come on back now ya hear!

10 Minutes or Less Birthday Card~

Hey Krafters!
This past weekend, I put myself on a challenge. My cousin turned one on Saturday and I did not make her a card! I literally had 15 minutes before I had to be out of the door. I remembered on the invitation, there was a cupcake. With only that design element in mind, this is what I came up with! I even had a couple minutes to spare ;-)
I used the Yummy Imagine cartridge for the pattern papers and the cupcake. In the banner I stamped her name in the circles using Studio G stamps from Michael’s dollar spot. If I had more time, I would have done something different. However, I think it turned out well….even with all of the business of the patterns. Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

Tissue Box With Style-Creative Team Project

Hello Krafters!
It is Krafthead here to share with you a project I made for the Scrappin with Sharon and Smokey Creative Team. The miniature box was originally used for candies. However, since it is cold season, I thought it would be a cute idea to make a tissue box with it instead.  This box fits pocket sized tissues perfectly! I used acetate at the top and cut a slit to access the tissues or you can just lift the top on and off as needed. To embellish it, I used some black lace from my stash and some black flat back pearls.  The flourishes were made using Black Diamond Stickles and the Bazzill Fantasy Flourish Template.
File RM00090 is the flower file which was used to further embellish the box. The flowers were so easy to put together. When getting this file, there is an added bonus….a butterfly! I was so happy when I saw that! So cute!
If you are giving as a gift as a tissue box, I would recommend sealing the box with Mod Podge to strengthen it a bit. Also, use a thick and or sturdy cardstock.
There are so many things that can be done with RM00114! You can make it a cute care package for someone by adding a few tissues and a packet of tea…..or give as favors at a wedding. The sky is truly the limit. RM00090 makes gorgeous 3D flowers!
As always, I appreciate you stopping by! Don't forget to check out Sharon's store regularly. She adds new files often! Hope you enjoyed the project. Take care, Krafthead~
