File Folders Box set with THE CUTTING CAFE

Hi peeps! This week over at THE CUTTING CAFE we are using the 
FILE FOLDER BOX HOLDER FILE for our inspiration!
I  decided to start making these fun little boxes for my scrap cardstock that has been cut approx 4x5 1/4 for backgrounds.  For this little box, I decided to make one specially for Christmas will make it so much easier to grab then having to sort through all of them!! These little boxes are simply adorable-and so easy to make up!

and a front view...

This box could also easily hold sets of cards and envelopes to give as gifts....
The Cutting Cafe has two different sizes available...the bigger one can even hold 6x6 paper pads!
I hope you can stop by and check out the inspiration all the DT makes up for you, on 
 tomorrow, and make sure to comment, as it gives you the chance to win three files from 

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Fresh Brewed Designs New Challenge.....

Hello! There is a new challenge going on over at Fresh Brewed Designs....this week the challenge is a sketch:
I have used FBD image: Gourd Birdhouse

I have also used the Cardz Tv Stamps "Critter Punnies" for the sentiment.
I loved coloring up this gorgeous image with my copics and then also crumpled it up and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo to "age" the look....I am really liking how this turned out.....
Have a great day!

Its been so long.....

Hi all! WOW-has it ever been a long time since I posted! This crazy summer is almost gone already, and hopefully the cool fall will bring with it a slower pace!! It just seems odd to me that the kids start school back up the day after tomorrow! My Emily will be in the 7th grade, and because of money problems at the school district, she will be moving up to the High school, as they are shutting down the middle will be very interesting-they have told us that the 7th -8th graders will be kept in separate areas from the 9-12....we will see how it goes....not too excited about this transition at all!!
On another note, I would like to share a super fun file from THE CUTTING CAFE with you today! MILK CARTONS.....and there are all kinds of them....plain,  Fall and Halloween Milk Carton (the ones I worked with) and many more.....

Instead of cutting the pumpkin in the box so that there was a window, I just cut out the pumpkin twice on its own, then looked up a pumpkin on the cricut to get the little leaves. I also used the CARDZ TV stamp set Fall Fun for the sentiment, along with the You and are cut from the cricut.
I hope you will get the chance to stop by tomorrow over on THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG to check out what the rest of the DT came up with.
