Latest Paper Projects

3-D project: Fresh Cuts Birdhouse

This needs some fine-tuning, but I do love the overall result of this cute project.

I used SU! KRAFT cardstock and
sahara sand with a small swatch of

chocolate chip around the opening.
Stamp sets: Fresh Cuts and Dreams du Jour
Accessories: gold brads, sugar dust (not SU!), 1"circle punch, scallop circle punch,
1 -1/4" circle punch

Joy Fold....I think they call it that because they are so easy yet so unique!
Stamps: Dreams du Jour
Inks: pink pirouette, chocolate chip,& kiwi kiss
Cardstock: pink pirouette, chocolate chip, very vanilla, kiwi kiss Accessories: 1-1/4" square punch, scallop edge punch

I love 3-D projects...don't you?
Little purses are always a charmer, especially when you use the darling little stamp sets Dreams du Jour and Fresh Cuts by SU!.
I used INN COLORS pink pirouette, kiwi kiss & baja breeze by SU! with some whisper white and chocolate chip (can I create WITHOUT chocolate chip??)
Some Accessories used: gold brad, circle punches, SU! Dazzling Diamonds glitter, crimper & hemp twine.

Everyone keeps telling me
"I HATE sock monkies!"
REALLY?? (*sigh*)
well, I was never in love with them,
but I really like this stamp set and
I plan on getting the "Sock Monkey Accessories" to go along with it.
I know i do LOVE the new in-color "kiwi kiss" by SU! and I think this set and the colors sure did make a cute little pillow box (**patting self on back**)
Well, it could be the clever use of paper piecing on the monkey or perhaps the touches of Dazzling Diamonds glitter, or maybe the "My Way" punch that helped to make this box so adorable... or maybe it was just good ol' fashion, pure talent? (**GRIN**)
