Steam Punk Bestie Candy Box

Today I want to share a fun project I made for Halloween.  I used this fun Steam Punk Bestie and created myself a fun candy box.  The candy box is an SVG pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs called a Scalloped Gift Box. You can access both by simply clicking on the links. 

I have discovered a new love of coloring with my Photoshop application. While it is really fun for me, I do still have a great deal to learn with the application.  


This is a project that is so far out of my comfort zone that I required some input from my SIL and my SBFF.  Both were instrumental in helping me get the project completed. 

The coloring was easy, and putting the box together was easy, putting the design together was a wee bit more difficult.  There are some fun elements on this box.  The metal gears, the paper flowers, and even the hidden clock face with the metal clock hand peaking out.  

Once I completed the Scalloped box, I used the Stencils and purple ink to create a half clock face.  Unfortunately, once I added the rest of my elements, you cannot see the stenciled clock.  I added the tulle with some hot glue to hold it securely.  

I used the print and cut feature of my Cameo to cut out the digi, and add a black shadow behind her.  I then added her to my box with pop dots so she would stand off the box.  

I purchased white paper flowers, and used Tattered Angels glitter spray to color the black one, and Tim Holtz alcohol ink to color the purple one.  I was a little disappointed in the color it turned out. I was wanting it to be a darker purple. 

Sticking with the steam punk theme, I added some metal gears to go along with the gears in the digi, and a metal clock hand on the right hand side to support the stenciled clock face.  I finished off the candy box by adding some black lace around the outside of the lid. 












Here is what I used to finish this project:  Steam Punk BestieLittle Scraps of Heaven Designs called a Scalloped Gift Box, Tim Holtz metal gears and metal clock hands. I also used I also used the Tim Holtz layering stencils Clock face.  Paper flowers and Tim Holtz inks.

Dress UP

Today is my day to post up on the wonderful My Besties Design Team Blog.  Today I have completed something so much different than I normally do.  Generally, I just do cards, but with the holidays coming up, I wanted to try something different. So I made this adorable little lady into a cute french fry box.  

She is colored up using my Copic Markers, then embellished using flowers at her feet and the top right hand corner of the box.  I added a nice bow, and a pretty pearl button to finish off the look. 

This box will be perfect to cheer someone up with a couple of homemade cookies added. 




You can find this adorable bestie and more at the Scrapbook Stamp Society Store.

Hello everyone!

Today I am here to share a fun quick and easy box with you.  So fast to complete.  I simply cut the box out using a pattern from the Silhouette store, glued it together, then I added some simple embellishments.


The paper I used, I purchased at Michael's and have had sitting in my room for quite some time.  This paper needed to be used for a special project.  Once I had my box made, I added some Baby Girl Pink ribbon from 3 Girl Jam, made a nice small bow and topped that bow off with some pink gems and a beautiful Pink Ribbon fabric button from Pinque Peacock.  I also added a small row of lace at the top of the box.  I thought about adding some pink flowers but I felt that would be a little over the top for this paper and the box.  

See, fast and easy!!! 

Thanks for checking out the Pinque Peacock blog.

Scrapbook Stamp Society ~ Birthday Boy

Good Morning everyone, 

Today I have a fun card to share with you today.  This card I colored with my Photoshop application.  I have always enjoyed coloring, but I also enjoy playing with Photoshop and see what I can do with it.  Once I got this cute little guy all colored, I cut him out with my Cameo, and added two offsets, One in blue, and then another in craft paper.  The cute little guy is popped up off the card with pop dots.  I finished the card off with the addition of three brown buttons.

This is a fun project that I created for our monthly blog hop.  I have had this project in que for a while now, and just needed the right time to create it.  The time is now.  The file I used is from the Silhouette Shop and cut it out with my Cameo.  

I made this Pocket Tag Mini Album using my all time favorite paper.  The La Creme stack.  You can purchase this paper from The Bargin Bin.  Just make sure you ask our Quirky Queen how you can take advantage of those great deals.  

Each page is cut desperately and then nicely tied together with some black and white twine.  I have added a tag for each of the pockets.  At this time, I have not added any journaling to the tags, because I simply do not know yet what I want to use this for or who I want to give it to.  I also added some of the black and white twine to each tag.  To finish off the pocket Tag Mini Album, I added a nice Close To My Heart sentiment "Friends".  I cut the sentiment using my cameo and added a nice shadow to help it stand out.  The sentiment is popped up with foam dots.

My Whimsical Little World ~ September 8 New Releases

September 8, 2014 New Releases




My how time flies when you are having fun.  It is so hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner.  Soon it will be time to think about Christmas cards and start working on those.  

Today, I have three fun Halloween cards to share with you.  Home Before Midnight, Robbie the Robot, and Halloween Fence.  When I started these cards, I thought I had much different Halloween papers and embellishments.  I soon found out, what I thought I had, I didn't.  I hate it when that happens, especially when it is to late to make a run to Michael's. 

They are fun cards none the less and I think turned out pretty cute.

Welcome Back to School!

August 25, 2014 New Releases



I don't have any kids in school anymore, just grandkids, but I still cannot believe how quickly the summer has past and it is already back to school time (in most places).  

Today I have three different images to showcase for you from My Whimsical Little World.  They are fun and fun to design with as well. 

The first I have is a simple layout, using Cole to create a quick layout.  I am a simple girl, so my layouts are going to be simple.  I will have to be honest though, This layout started from a make-n-take at a crop over the weekend.  We made the banner and the pencil. I added to it from there. 


Next, I have two cards for you, first I have the alarm clock then I have the mug of school supplies
