Hugs and Kisses – CC#28


Hello bloggy friends!  I hope you’re having a lovely week so far!  I’m popping in to share a little something that I recently created for the latest challenge at The Card Concept!


I attended the Heirloom Stamp Show in Lawrenceville, GA with Paper Sweeties over the weekend and one of my crafty friends came along to help me at the show!  I made this sweet little shabby gift box to accompany a necklace I gave her to say ‘thank you’ for all the help at the show!


Stamp supply list:  Fancy Monograms

Dies supply list:  Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts

Embellishment supply list:  Frosting Sequins, Watermelon Seam Binding, Frosting Seam Binding

I hope this inspires you to create something sweet today!  Please visit The Card Concept challenge blog to see the rest of the teamies projects — so much eye candy to be treated to!!

And, did you see this DESIGN TEAM CALL at Paper Sweeties??!!??


Hugs – xoxox

I am sure your friend has fallen in love with the gift box as much as the present you shared. What a pretty, thoughtful idea. I love that pin sticking up…gorgeous!

    Very sweet design! I was so disappointed that I could not attend the show in Lawrenceville. Maybe I will be well enough in September to attend the event in Norcross.

    Your project is sweet and very nicely crafted! Thanks for sharing with us here at 613 Avenue Create.
