Lighthouse Tea-Light and Box

I made this project as a thank you gift for a special beach house favor from a special peep's special mom.  (I'm so lucky to have so much special in my life!)  This SVG Cuts Seaside Kit is amaaaaazing!  

I put a battery tea-light in the top, and then slipped a package of tennis balls perfectly into the bottom box (because I couldn't forget to include a little something for her special dog too!)

Thanks for visiting!

Congrats Grad Card

A last minute graduation party for sisters means two last minute quick and simple graduation cards. And when they are for a good friend's daughters, it has to have a little extra sparkle even if it's simple ;)

I used Silhouette Online Store files: a title by Lisa Norris and a background by Jamie Koay.  The "congrats" title is cut in gold mirror paper and I was surprised at how clean it cut - perfect!  Some shimmery silver, white and black layers for the text added a little more sparkle to my quick card.

I made these an hour before heading out to the party and missed popping out that itty bitty piece in the corner.  Shhh!  Maybe they won't notice, or maybe it'll fall out in the envie before they open it, lol!

Thanks for visiting!

Time for Rock & Rolos

My niece, who loves to play her guitar, graduated high school this week.  I planned to make her a fun guitar-shaped box to put an iTunes gift card in, but there was so much extra space left that I decided to include some of her favorite candy too, which happens to be Rolos.  Then I just couldn't resist the temptation for the "Rock and Rolos" title, lol!

This amazing guitar design is from the Vintage Valentines SVG Kit from SVGCuts.  Mary has done it again!  I have to admit that I bought this kit just for the guitar - and oh boy it was sooo worth it.  It takes some time and patience to put it all together, but the results are fantastic, don't ya think?

I wonder if she could design a drum set next?  Hahaha!

Thanks for visiting!

Friendship Lamps

What better way to celebrate my birthday than to surprise my peeps with a little 'made with love' gift to  show each of them how much they mean to me.  Since they are Disney fans I found my inspiration from a quote at the end of the movie Tinker Bell and The Lost Treasure:

The greatest treasures are not gold
nor jewels nor works of art.
They can not be held in your hand
they're held within your heart.
For worldly things will fade away
as seasons come and go.
But the treasure of true friendship
will never lose its glow.

And of course I used an SVG Cuts design!   This tea light lamp is part of their Maison de Madeline SVG Kit.

Thank you ladies for a totally awesome birthday weekend - the shopping, waffles, cake baking/decorating, movies, photo booth, scenic drives and walks, and especially the laughter - so many fun memories even someone my age will never forget!
You are indeed the bestest.
