I just love the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cartridge. It is so easy to make some really quick and simple favor boxes. I made several of these for a small bridal shower for one of the gals that I play Bunco with.

I cut the boxes out at 5 1/2 ". This size is perfect to hold 4 of the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, which I tucked into a couple of circles of tulle before placing them into the boxes. The stamped image is from the Figures of Speech set from Stampin' Up. I finished them off with a few primas, mini pearls and some bling that I had laying around.

As you can see I am very behind on my LO's. By the time I get caught up with Britt's high school years she will have children in high school that I need to scrapbook. LOL

I just finished this one last week of Brittany's high school graduation. I paper pieced the rolled diploma and cap from a pattern by Cropy Cats. The title is cut from the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge and the "08" is cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.

There is no way I can take any credit for the make up of this card. I shamelessly scrap lifted it off of the Greeting Farm gallery board. There are many takes of this card on the board. I just love it! Whoever came up with this little idea first is definitely very creative!!

The stamp is an Ian stamp from the Greeting Farm. I added Glossy Accents to Ian's helmet and used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to imitate the texture of the "football". The sentiment is a Studio G $1 stamp from Michael's.

Now to wait for one of my nephew's to hurry up and have a birthday so I can give it to one of them. ;)

Here is another birthday card that I made for my BIL and another cute stamp that I do not own. If only money grew on trees....sigh. The stamp is from a Stampin' Up set called Pun Fun. I also used the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder. Super simple card.

Here is my new stamp shelf that Scott and my FIL built for me this week. I admit I am totally spoiled rotten. My hubby never ceases to amaze me. The shelf fits perfectly behind the bedroom door. When the door is opened you don't even realize the shelf is there. As you can see I have already filled it up and am trying to figure out where to put another one.

I wish I owned this stamp, it is adorable. I was fortunate enough though to receive a couple of the images in a swap so I put together this card for a friend. I popped up the second layer and used Glossy Accents on the balloons and gifts. The sentiment is a Studio G $1 find at Michael's. The border punch (I think it's Martha Stewart) was a real find at Michael's at 75% off!!!
