A little bird of Thanks

Things I love:  Best Birds and Jars of Love.

A  few weeks ago my best friend sent me a thank you card for hosting a baby shower.  It was a bright floral wreath with a pretty little pink bird right in the middle.  It gave me the inspiration for this bird and wreath card.

I stamped a few layered flower on a scrap of Whisper White and cut them out with the Jar of Love framelits.  I finished it off with a cute Melon Mambo bird just like my inspiration.

Good Morning!  Check out today’s awesome project. Love it?  I’ll give you the details.



  • To create the camera shape, put the folded card base into the envelope punch board and punch at the 1 3/4″ mark on one side, them flip the card over and punch on the other end (same edge of the card).  Cut off the outer parts of the card leaving the middle rounded hump.
  • Use the foam strips to keep confetti/sequins in the shaker window.
  • Use 2″ and 1 3/4″ circle punches to make the camera lens quickly and easily.
  • For the decorative middle, place three rows of Pop of Pink black and gold washi tape.
  • Keep with a few colors for a bigger impact!

Quick & Easy Donut Boxes

Happy National Donut Day!! A day completely made up, but after my own heart.  We already made a quick trip out for donuts this morning, but ate them before I had a chance to snap a photo, so instead, I’m giving you the donut that keeps on giving!

This easy to make donut box can by made quick, in about ten minutes start to finish.  Grab your supplies from the list at the bottom of this post and get to making.

  1. Cut two 2 1/2″ x 11″ strips of Sahara sand. Score longways a little over 1/4″ in on both sides.  Cut little slits to the score lines on both sides about 1/4″ apart. Add tear tape to one end of each strip to form a circle.
  2. Cut Sahara Sand into two 4″ squares. Cut Blushing Bride into a 3 1/2″ square. I used the Tear & Tape and a pencil to trace the size as a guide.  Trim into a circle.  Make the Blushing Bride curvy like icing.
  3. Punch confetti hearts out of scrap paper.  Cut a scrap white circle for the center.
  4. Attach the Sahara Sand circle to the fringed circle with liquid glue. Repeat for the bottom of the box.
  5. Adhere the pink icing to the box top and decorate with confetti hearts.
  6. Enjoy!!
