Hello everyone! Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!


Today is my design team post for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is Back to School.


 The sponsors are:


Craftin Desert Divas: 1 stamp set




My Scrap Chick: $10 coupon code


Clear Snap: Prize Pack


The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is what I created for the Linky Party:


The cut file I used is one from our sponsor My Scrap Chick titled "School Bookmarks". You can get them right now for only $1!!

The sentiment was created using my Silhouette pens and the Lucinda Handwriting font.
And the face stamp is from Peachy Keen of course.  It is from the August 2012 Stamp of the Month set.
I inked the edges of my image using our products from our sponsor Clear Snap...  Colorbox inks and daubers.  I loved how easy it was to apply this ink! :)

Happy Birthday! - Hinged Gift Card Box - PDE Linky Party

Hello everyone! 
Happy Tuesday to ya.  :)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
It was pretty darn hot here... low 100's, and that is just too hot for me!!
I was able to spend a little time in my (thankfully AIR CONDITIONED) craft room though. :)
Today is the mid post for the Pause Dream Enjoy "Use 3 Patterns or More" Linky Party, and this is what I created for my DT project:
I created a band to go around the gift box to keep it closed... don't want anyone trying to peek inside until it's time to open! :) 
On the inside is a little insert to hold a gift card.

This fun box is from a Jamie Cripps file in the Silhouette Store.  It had an apple and the word "thanks" for the front, but I just didn't cut that part out.  Instead, I added that adorable little girl from a Too Cute By Jessica file titled: Happy Birthday Kids

I also cut out a label I got at the Sil. Store and used my black Silhouette pen to make the personalized sentiment.

All of the pattern paper is from a cardstock stack I got at our NEW Hobby Lobby! The brand is Momenta. This paper is awesome!! I love the colors and patterns, and it's really thick cardstock!  (gotta get another one!!)

I stamped the girls face with a Peachy Keen stamp from the "In the Garden" face asst. An absolute MUST HAVE, in my opinion.

So that about does it!

I hope you will join us at the Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party!  You can find it right here.
