More Gelli-licious Mono Prints

In my last Fabulous Finds Friday I raved about Gelli Plates.
Once the prints are made (I do a LOT at one time) putting the cards together is fast and easy, two of my favorite words.

Here are some more cards I made:

The prints work well on their own, or you can add sentiments:

Remember I mentioned scraps? When I trimmed my papers to fit my cards, naturally I had scraps. Did I throw them away? Nooooooooooooooooo! Here’s what I did with them:

Boxed In

As we know, I love boxes and I love this box die from Lifestyle Crafts (now owned by We R Memory Keepers).

The wood-look papers are from Kaisercraft, the rosettes were cut using a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die.

The papers here are from Basic Grey.

These were so fast and easy to make — I used them as gifts for my co-workers.

That was a quick posting, eh? Have a great week.

Pretty Boxes, Easily Made

I love boxes and I love this box making die from Lifestyle Crafts. It was fast and easy to create several boxes for holiday gifts.

This set features papers from Basic Grey.

Here’s another, using paper from KaiserCraft:

And check out the rosettes! (See, I promised I would do something with all those rosettes I showed in my last post!)

One other cool thing about this die is that you can also make an open lattice basket. Here’s an example of the basket:

Fabulous Finds Friday — Pencil Box

Sometimes a gal needs to go off the card and play with something a little sturdier than paper. For me, it’s boxes. I love boxes. I collect boxes. The hubster is annoyed with the amount of boxes I have stashed in the closet! 

So imagine my delight in getting a gift of this lovely little pencil box by Kaisercraft:

 At least I did somethng with this one: 

After putting the box together (uber easy) I lightly sanded it, then painted it with two coats of blue acrylic paint (Plaid Baby Blue Paper Paint). The paper and border are both by Creative Imagination. I applied both using Mod Podge.   And there you go!

It was so much fun, and so fast (except for waiting for the paint to dry) that I want to make another!
