Double Slot Treat Box

Birthday Party Live - Project #6 I love when Stampin' Up! release dies that make cute little boxes such as the new Little Treat Box dies that are available.

Birthday Party Live - Project #4 Yesterday was my birthday, so I had to make sure the project done on my birthday was a special one.

Penguin Birthday

My son turned 11 last month - he's absolutely penguin mad, so his card every year is always penguin related in some way. The launch of the new Autumn / Winter was perfect timing for me to make his card this year, especially with the inclusion of the Freezin' Friends Bundle. The gorgeous penguin from… Continue reading Penguin Birthday

Do you often find that making a masculine card is more difficult than making one for a female recipient? I know I do.
