MMSC47, A Sachet Gift Box

Today I will show you something different, we have been featuring Priscillastyles thick style envelopes this month at Midnight Madness, our monthly sponsor, but you can use these envelopes for something other than a card.  I used a Sachet of Vanilla and Lavender but anything that is around that size would work also.  Boy, my craft room has been smelling heavenly this week!! Priscilla is also our weekly sponsor as well, for that gift she will be giving away a 6 x 6 envelope kit so you will have an envelope template for your thicker cards.
 I did some lacing around the envelope, weaving it in and out to give it a very feminine feel to the gift, after all it is a Sachet, you can give it a go with whatever fits your project or theme.

It is best to do all your work on your envelope before you adhere the flaps to one another.  I happen to be lacing this envelope as I was watching HGTV and I have got to say I had my Kitties very interested in it!!

I want to share this with you all today ,this is my last Midnight Madness Sketch card as a Design Team member. Due to personal reasons I decided to step down.   I will miss my Design team sisters beyond measure but I hope to continue to see them in blogland.  I want to assure you I will be keep making cards and will be blogging them and other topics as I can.   Thank you all so much, Blessings to you and yours, Jane

MMSC46, Cocktail anyone?

Celebrate with a long cool one, whatever that would be!!  For my main focal point it is not at stamped or a digital image BUT a cocktail.  How about a big wish of "Celebrate"?  This is so festive, great for any good news or a birthday celebration.  This is also my first Easel card, not hard at all.  What got me to do one?  I have been meaning to, really but since this is very top heavy and was doing the splits for me when I tried to stand it up, well the solution was to make it into an Easel card, and now there is NO problem with that.  I just did a very small modification. 

So since I am sure you have noticed by now how thick this card is with the bead on the stir stick and all the other goodies (but so worth it) I needed to create a thick style envelope, this card is 5 x 7 and so I used the template from Priscillastyles for this size.  She also offers several other envelope sizes and styles so stop on by for the endless possibilities.  Priscillastyles is also our monthly sponsor at Midnight Madness and our Midnight Madness Mistress.   Our weekly Sponsor is also with Midnight Madness as a Design Team member Jeni.  Jeni is the owner of D'Amour Allure home of stylish and unique stamps.  Her sponsorship this week is some stamps, wood paper and Prima flowers.

Thanks for visiting today, always glad to have you.

MMSC 45, Framed-up Flower

Hello and Welcome,
Today I bring you a framed-up flower bloom.  I like how this came together and really enjoyed adding the stick pin with the butterfly jewel and those two Coral colored Prima Flowers and the background designer paper in Coral  as well but I will let you be the judge as I show you several of the pictures I took of this card.
This is the card  and the envelope I created for it.  Notice the card is extra thick due to the two large Prima flowers and the name plate frame and added stick-pin.  To address an extra thick card, you can use an extra thick envelope template that will house a thicker card.  You can find those at   Priscillastyles Store, Our Monthly Sponsor at Midnight Madness.  Our weekly sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking also known as The Pixie Cottage which are offering a set of very nice stamps.
Here I am showing you a close-up on the butterfly and threaded through my stick-pin.  Also notice the word 'thank you' , it is very pretty and a RUB-ON.  I have never used a rub-on but loved it.  I think that these are great it you want to take an all-occasion card and make it for whatever purpose you need a card for.
I couldn't buy just one sheet, I have to buy three of them.
Blessings everyone and thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your blogging time today,  Jane

Girl Scout Cookies are here

Yet another reason to love this time of year!!
To think I ALMOST missed on my yearly Girl Scout Cookies, I sent a word out and lookie, I got some.  Actually hubby brought them home after I told him that I think I missed the selling season, so here he brings them home, isn't that nice?  Well actually how these cookies work and a lot of other food items at my house works is, I open the box, take out what I am going to eat at that time.  Then I come back to an ALMOST empty box.  You see where I am going with this, so when I DO mention that they were all eaten by 'others' then I am told, you opened the box and finished the box so surely you got more that any one else?  Who knows what really happens to the other cookies, Huh??   The logic totally escapes me.

Anyways, I hope you got yours (and your share).  My favorite is the Thin Mints, what is your favorite??  Blessings,  Jane
