Ink up the tiny heart and fill in the edges with a mix of soft suede and mango melody hearts.

Create your card base by folding and burnishing the largest piece of crumb cake cardstock, then layer up all your pieces of cardstock and DSP with snail including the large very vanilla panel on the inside of the card, except the sentiment piece which should be adhered with dimensionals.

Lucky to Have A Friend Like You Card. Number 61 of #100things

Good Morning Folks,

I have a quick and easy card today that I made for a good friend of mine, just to say hello and that I appreciate her.

Create a card base from a piece of whisper white cardstock cut at 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8".

Ink up the small flowers from  the Love What you do stamp set and stamp a line of then close to the score line.

Take a piece of Whisper white card stock and stamp the sentiment in the centre, then fill the edges with the floral image. Layer this onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss that measures 3" x 3".

Cut a piece of Mint Macaron and a piece of the share what you love DSP to 5 1/2" x 4 1/8". Take a ruler and measure down 1" on the left hand side and the n one inch upon the right hand side. Draw a line to join these marks together. Cut these pieces down, and then you will have 'tea cards worth'.

Add the DSP to the bottom edge of the card base and then line up the Mint Macaron up against it - this should leave a thin strip at the top which shows the small stamping you did first.

Add diemsnionals to the sentiment panel and add to the centre of the card front.

Tea Room Tealight Gift Cube. Number 60 of #100things

Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend, I met up for lunch with a friend on Saturday, then met up with some other friends for catch up in the evening - so yesterday I got into my craft room, got my head down and created this beautiful tealight gift cube to show you all. It's a cute box which measures 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" and holds three tea lights.


Bermuda Bay Cardstock 
1pc - 8" x 6 1/4"

Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper
5pc - 1 5/8" x 1 5/8"

Take the Bermuda Bay Cardstock and put it into the simply scored so the 8" length run horizontal. Score on this length at 1", 2 3/4", 4 1/2" & 6 1/4", then rotate to cardstock 90degrees so that the shorter length is horizontal. Score along this edge at 1", 2 3/4" & 4 1/2".

Fold and burnish all the score lines, then hold the cardstock so you have skinny rectangles on your left and also running along the top.

Cut up all the vertical lines from the bottom to the first horizontal score line - these pieces will fold together to create the base.

Cut away some additional pieces to create a shape as below:-

Take you DSP panels and adhere to the cardstock as below. Also add a little thumb notch with the 3/4" circle punch.

Add tear and tape to the tabs as above. Adhere the tab from the left hand side to the opposite side then fold in the flaps on the bottom to create a solid base.

Fussy cut four butterflies from the same paper pack and stick these to some Rich Razzleberry cardstock, fussy cut these out as well, leaving a small border around the edge. Stick these to the DSP panels around the box.

Stamp the for you sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut out with the 3/4" circle punch and layer this to a 1" circle of Rich Razzleberry. Adhere this to the lid.

Tie a bow with the very vanilla solid bakers twine and adhere to the lid with a glue dot.

Holly Christmas Gift Bag. Number 59 of #100things

Hello Everyone,

Today I have this cute gift bag which is easy to make and you can get two bags from one pieces of 12x12". It's also a great size, it measures 4 1/4" x 1 1/2" x 4 1/2", so it can fit in all sorts of goodies!

Cut a piece of DSP to 6" x 12". Score on the long side at 1 1/2", 5 3/4", 7 1/4" & 11 1/2" and the you need to add some part scores,  these are score lines down approx. 3" at 3/4" and 6 1/2". Finally score the short side at 4 1/2".

Hold the DSP horizontally and cut up all the bottom vertical score lines to the horizontal score line. Cut straight up at the sides of the rectangles and notch into the squares. Cut off the thin rectangle on the right hand side and notch slightly into the tab. So you are left with a shape like below....

Add adhesive to the thin tab on the right hand side, I used red line tape as I couldn't find my Tear & Tape. Remove the release paper and adhere to the opposite side to create the bag shape.  fold in the sides and the back flap, add adhesive to the front flap and fold over to create the base.

Pinch the bag together at the top, the part score lines that were added help create a really nice shape. Whilst closed, take the 1/8" handheld punch and create two holes in the top. thread some ribbon through the holes and secure with a know to create the handles.

Bring in the big shot and cut two squares using the stitched shapes framelits. Cut the smallest in whisper white and the second smallest in Poppy Parade cardstock. 

Stamp the Merry Christmas in Garden Green ink onto the whisper white which is laid as a diamond shape, then layer this onto the Poppy Parade. Place a red rhinestone in to top and bottom corner and then adhere to the front of the bag.
