Tea Swap NE-1?

Karen from Canada was my partner for May's Tea Swap.  It was so cool to have a partner living so far away!!  Check out her blog!  The theme was flowers and the challenge color combo was red/green.  This is the beautiful card she created for me along with two Teaforte Blueberry Merlot and Cherry Cosmo.  Mmmmmm!!  She also included a flowering tea bud, this one is called Starlight Rose.  I recently acquired a clear tea pot so I can't wait to see what forms!!

This is the inside of the card.  Love the quote! 
Karen, thank you for being a great partner this month and for a great card and delicious tea!!

Here's my card to Karen.  She is called Clementine the Tea Pot Girl from Stamping Bella.  I used a couple of copics and Prima flowers.  The quote was passed on to me by DeAnna.  (Thank you, girlfriend!  I've finally used it!).  The quote goes perfectly with the image.

I also reused a cute goodie holder that Kelli made at our last get-together.  I thought it went perfectly with the card.  The owl is from Cricut.

Inside the holder I included 3 teas and 2 Green Tea candy.

Mother's Day Gifts

I started these gifts early this morning and I was stressed all day trying to finished them before our Mother's Day Dinner while running errands here and there.
   I created a bunch of my Ningyogami dolls in different heights and created a framed family plaque.

 These frames are from Ross' for less than $10.

BTW, I did finish them 1/2 an hour before we left for dinner.

Now to work on the cards for my gift cards class!!!

It's Mother's Day

Wow, it's been a week since I last posted.  Life has been busy.  I had a couple of orders for the cupcake box as well as some personal issues I have had to deal with.  Other than that, today's Mother's Day.

Here's a shout out:  
Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful and creative moms!!!

For me, it's just another day taking care of everyone else :o)  But that's okay.  I am loved :o)

Here's the sliding card I created for my mother-in-law.  It was one of the projects we did at the NSD event last weekend.

  Priscilla, the owner of A Place in Time, is the designer of this beautiful card:
It's a sliding card.  Pull out the tab, and more words appear in the little circle as well as the finishing of the poem.

Tomorrow I'll post the gift I created for my mom and mother-in-law.

Friendship with flourish

 Here's a simple card I created for a friend.  The stamp is a set from Stampin Up called Previous Butterflies.

The butterflies are Martha Stewart Punch.  I organized an NSD crop event event at a Place In Time.  I'm exhausted!   I think I created 2 Make-In-Takes and possible, if I get up early in the morning, another one.  :o)

Cupcake Holder Tutorial

Per your request, here is the tutorial: 
 You will need 3 papers:  a)  12x12 paper for the box bottom; b) 8 x 8 paper for the box top; and c) 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" for the cupcaker holder (the inside).
Creating the box bottom:  Score the 12x12 paper at 4" and 8"; Turn the paper 90 degrees and score at the 4" and 8".  Trim your paper as follows:

Following the design above, dashes mean score; solid lines mean cut

At one loose fold, punch out a portion of the label punch (I used SU Decorative Label Punch) and adhere the folder over to create a pocket.  Each loose folder gets adhered to the next flap so that you are left with a cross and each outside portion of the cross has 2 pieces of cardstock adhered to each other.

Here's another picture showing you how the folds are overlapped.

Now to create the Cover and the Inside cupcake holder.  Cut paper to size indicated above.

For the Cover, score 2" all around the 8"x8" paper and then cut at the four corners.  You will be creating 4 cuts altogether (see picture above). 

For the inside cupcake holder, score 1" all around the 5 3/4" paper and then cut at the four corners. Then using a die cut machine or punch, cut a 2" centered circle (I used a Nesti).
Finish off the box by adhering the four corners. 
Here is what the box cover and the cupcake holder looks like right side up.

Create your little card.  I used an SU stamp from For A Friend set, chalk and bling. 
Place the card inside the pocket created by the SU Decorative Label Punch. Place your cupcake holder inside the box.
Fold up the four flaps and place your cover on top of the box.
Tie a ribbon over the box and a pretty tag.  (SU tag from the Matchbox messages set.)
Now all you need is the cupcake. 
Thank you for stopping by!

A little something for the teacher

Teacher Appreciation Week is this week at the boys' school. 

Here's the gift box in pretty pink and brown

With a cute little tag

Untie the ribbon, lift the lid.  Ta-da, it's a cupcake holder!

This cupcake holder is a take off from the explosion box that Brenda made for me here.
I knew the teachers are not familiar with "designer cupcakes" and would appreciate them.
The designer cupcakes are from Cake Couture in downtown Honolulu.
Flavors change daily.  I bought a variety:  Red Velvet, cookies and cream, chocolate, Oreo cookie, lemon, and vanilla.  Mmmmm!!
