more for GIBBS 5

This is the last item I have to post from Tracy's goodies. I will soon be posting some of the layouts I did at the weekend crop I went to Veteran's Day weekend.

This project was "treats for your partner and family". I made this treat basket from some embossed AC cardstock and used some of the leaves from the wreath as embellishments with button centers to look like holly and berries.

Christmas wreath

This is the next to last project for Tracy that I have to share with you.

I used the same papers for the wreath that I used for the banner as well as the same Glimmer Mists. I found the little pearls at Hobby Lobby in the bridal department and decided to tuck them in between the leaves in various spots. All of the leaves were cut using my Cricut and Walk in My Garden cartridge.

Christmas tags

.... more goodies made for Tracy's box :)

I used papers and die cuts from Making Memories' Fa La La line for the tags above. I used my Cricut to cut the tag bases, holly & berries, poinsettias and "Happy Holidays" with various cartridges. I decided to 'pretty' the tags up by using Creative Imaginations glitter glue and Sakura glaze pens along with various ribbons.

For the tags below I used Reminisce's Snow Globe line. I used my Cricut for these tag bases as well along with the holly & berries, tree and the sayings. I 'prettied' these tags up with Creative Imaginations glitter glue, Sakura Glaze pens and Sakura Stardust pens.

I made these for Tracy's box as well. :)

The papers are from K & Company's Evergreen line that was designed by Brenda Walton. I used some Creative Imaginations Glitter Glue, a Viva Decor Pearl Pen and my Sakura Stardust pen to embellish the papers.

I made this Kusudama flower ball for my GIBBS 5 partner, Tracy.

The papers are from Karen Foster Designs, Paper Studio and Paper Pizazz. The ribbon is from Offray and the beads are from the $1 bead rack at JoAnn Fabrics.

"Peace" banner

This is a banner I made for Tracy for the GIBBS 5 swap on the Cricut Messageboard.

I used my Cricut to cut all of the pieces with the Lacy Labels and Storybook cartridges. The letters are cut from Storybook and I used Lacy Labels for all of the layers. I made 3 cuts of each letter to make them more dimensional by stacking them on top of each other.

letters ~ basic cardstock, Creative Imaginations Glitter Glue
snowflake frame ~ AC Cardstock, Holo Iridescent Viva Decor Glitter Liner
sweet base ~ Moxxie Winter Wishes patterned paper, Frost Glimmer Mist
flower base ~ Reminisce Snow Globe patterned cardstock, Pearl Glimmer Mist
flower shadow base ~ AC Cardstock
tulle ~ glitter tulle from Hobby Lobby

picture frame

This picture frame was sent off to Tracy for the GIBBS 5 swap on the Cricut Messageboard.

I originally covered this frame with a mixture of chocolate brown acrylic paint and gold diamond dust but didn't think it was good enough. I decided to use Tim Holtz' Tattered Rose Distress Crackle paint instead. The Grungeboard accents were painted with acrylic paint and then sprayed with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist. The flowers are spiral paper roses cut from some paper from Heidi Grace Designs and sprayed with Bubblegum Glimmer Mist. I used Zip Dry Paper Glue to adhere the flowers to the frame.

THANKS for looking!

These are part of Tracy's box as well.

I bought some ornaments from Hobby Lobby, disassembled them and made these from the bits & pieces.

Halloween goody boxes

Wow! It's been quite awhile since I last posted. I've been busy finishing up Tracy's goodies for the GIBBS Round 5 swap on the Cricut Messageboard. I am happy to say I shipped that off today and I will be sharing a couple more sneak peaks followed by full pictures once she's received her box.

Anyway ....... I wanted to share the goody boxes I made for my son's classmates for their Halloween party last week.

The boxes were bought on clearance at Michaels a couple of years ago from the Brides section. I cut the bat "ring" out using my Cricut & Pumpkin Carvings cartridge and sprayed with Slate and Cinder Glimmer Mists. The "treats" tag is a stamp from Pink Paislee's Twilight line that I hand cut and sprayed with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist. I attached the tags using ribbon by Offray.
