Butterflies, Glitter and a BIG thank you!

Howdy, folks! It was a wet, wet weekend here in I was able to get quite a bit done in my craft room! How about you? What did you do this last weekend? I was able to pull out some great purple paper and match it up with these treat boxes made by Basic Grey. They have a different pattern on the inside, so feel free to fold 'em the other way if you'd like.
These boxes are super easy to assemble and are the size of a large take-out box. Also included in this class is a small matching 3" gift card with a 3-D butterfly and lots of glitter:

And finally, a matching 3.5" x 6" card with glitter paper and felt daisy with gems:
 I'll also have a small thank you appreciation gift for everyone in class for being the best glue-stick therapy class around. Hope to see you Tuesday!

Summer Cards

It's finally summer here (this week) and I was inspired by all the outdoor activities we did, to make up these cards. I chose a variety of coordinated papers that to me, represent summer colors.
The first card is Made with Scenic Route - "Sentimental Diamonds" and Quick Quotes paper "Joker's Wild" and "My Michelle":

The second card reminds me of water. It's made with Gin-X "Scientifically Weird" and "Desperately Seeking Summer"; Scenic Route's "Hampton-Turner Street" and "Bellville Snow Drift". There are 19 different sentiment squares that I will bring to class:
And finally the 3rd card is a silly little summer beach card. I loved the bikini on the front so much I didn't cover it up with the blue water strips I have. It's made with Imaginisce "A Shore Thing" and Flair Design's "Summer Daze":Enjoy!
