I love making cards for babies 😀
newborns are the cutest and so are their welcoming cards 

this time I tried something different – and kinda like it 🙂 it’s one of those swing cards – you can buy the die for your big shot here – and I used a dark grey which is not usual for a baby card – I guess .. but whatever .. I like it 😀

Challenges:
Shopping our Stash: For the Boys (I had this die for so long – finally used it 😀 )

teacher appreciation gifts

A dear friend asked me to create three little explosion boxes for her kid’s kindergarten teachers – I think it’s such a cute and easy way to say thank you. Those boxes are so fast and easy to make but still look super cute, don’t you think?

new punch board and Incolors

I played around with the new paperbag punchboard and the super cool new InColors by Stampin‘ Up!
The punchboard is great and so are the new colors – can’t really decide which one my favorite is though – and, does the bag look better with or without the little flower accents? I don’t know 🙁 how do you like the new stamp set? I like it a whole bunch and can’t wait to order some new goodies next week, June 2nd, when you can order from the new annual catalogue 🙂

I made this cute little tealight box – the tutorial is by Sam and can be found here 🙂
my little creation also fits our current CUYL challenge – twine, ribbon and buttons 🙂 hop over to check out our dt’s work and play along 🙂

a bunch of ..

.. spring like sour cream containers 🙂

Wellness in der Tüte

Mother’s Day is on May 10th – maybe spa in a bag? Create a cute little bag, but some chocolates, candles, tea and bath beads in there and you’re to go 🙂
you may wonder why my bag is so wrinkly – I used the packing paper Stampin‘ Up! used to fill up their boxes – I hope it comes back – I like it so much better than the stupid plastic they use now.

Sweet Stampin Challenge: anything but a card
Open-Minded Crafting for Fun: recycle something (I made a bag out of packing paper)
