New Project Up

I did this cute stationary holder from Becky's blog  Inking Idaho. She's a super crafty lady.  I changed the inside of mine just a bit by adding a holder for the notepad.  Take a look.

Lauren's Timeless Template challenge

Lauren is sending out a challenge for anyone to use one of her Timeless Templates and design  a gift set using a Bath and Body Works product as the inspiration piece.  The challenge is to use that inspiration and create your own unique packaging for a gift.  Mine uses the Desktop Organizer and a gift set of four perfumed oils from Bath and Body Works.  I also used PTInk's clear cardstock as a cover and I stamped flowers on it using Stazon Jet Black ink.  The pattern paper is from a glitter stack I got at HL. I made an accordion flower and a gift tag using a Big Shot Die.  Check out the other entries on Lauren's blog.

Over at JulieBuhler's blog, she did a tu-tor for a cute mini purse.  It opens in the front and you can put a little note there as well as a small notecard or candy inside.

Another cute idea came from Kelly Lunceford's blog: It a a matchbox that can be decorated with a cute accordion flower that she also shows how to do.  So even though I have been blog hopping as it seems, I still feel like I'm in a creative fog of sorts.  Until tomorrow.

Blogger's Block?

What is Blogger's block?  I just penned that term to describe the fog that I'm in right now.  What is a blogger to do?  Who can help me out of this slump?  Anyone want to extend a hand?  Well I managed this morning to pull off one project.  While blog jumping, I came upon Roxy's blog:stampingwithroxy and she then referred everyone who stopped by to Heather Scott's blog.  The project is a double-pocket bag made from one 12-inch sheet of DP.  It is really cute.  The tut-tor is on Heather's blog as well as Roxy's.  Check it out:

In a creative slump

With this finicky weather in SC it seems like I've been a creative slump lately. But here are a few projects that I squeezed out of my creativeness. I'm not a cardmaker but I did do some cards.
