Last For Now!

This is the last one for today. Another year-round flower tissue box cover. Again, these are going to the animal shelter craft fair tomorrow. I used crinkled ribbon on this one.

Tissue Box Cover With Flowers

This one is a little different, can be used year-round. The flowers are curled and inked with distress ink. Came out very pretty, I think.

Another Holiday Tissue Cover

Another Holiday Box Cover. This one is made with DCWV Christmas Stack 09 also, kraft cardstock from JoAnn's, did another scalloped circle cut for the top opening and used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the decorative edging around the box. The tree is a cut file from MTC. I used a cuddle bug snowflake embossing folder on the red paper and distressed it a wee bit with my Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. Love how it came out!

More Tissue Box Covers!

This is an adorable gingerbread man. He is from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge. I made the scallop circle cuts on the top with MTC. Love that program!!!! Design papers are from DCWV last year's Christmas stack, the cardstock is mostly Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler. Love that color too. Oh, the brown is kraft cardstock from JoAnn's. I found a pack of 50 8.5x11 inch sheets for $3.99! Bought red and kraft and have been happy with both of them. The kraft cardstock is very good and would work great for cards as is the red. Very good buys.

Tissue Box Cover

This is the first completed one. Lot of grunge on this one, I love grunge! Embossed most of the DP with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. Snowflakes are from Winter Woodland cartridge. Had some cotton lace that went perfectly with everything. Really like these! Have 2 more almost completed. The tutorial can be found on Split Coast Stampers website.

Not the first time I have forgotten the picture!!!!

Holiday Card

Just made two of these last night and like them more than I thought I would. A slight sparkle to the snowflakes that is really pretty. I like the country, candy, festive look of them. Will make more for cards for soldiers program for next year and put them away since I am in a holiday crafting mood.

I am excited about tomorrow! Meeting with a group of ladies that are interested in making cards for soldiers. I have wanted to get a group together for awhile now. If all goes well we will be making cards for the soldiers  along with cards for other groups like the veteran homes, recovering soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Some of the cards are given to them to use to send home to family and friends and are blank and others are actually written to soldiers that are wounded, disabled, etc. We also hope to make head covers for cancer patients. I went through very long hard chemo 2 years ago and lost all my hair so I know what it is like to want something pretty  to put on. When I was strong enough I started making cotton hearcovers to take with me when I went for chemo. They would be gone by the time I left that day! I have been in follow-up chemo for two years now and continue to make and take them every time I go. I also give them to anyone that is in need be it local or putting some in the mail. Would love prayers for this group to be successfull. I will update my blog as to our progress.
