How time flies! I woke up this morning having this image in mind and I had to express it by making this cute Tinker Bell Petal Box!

Hi,everyone! Yikes, this is the 1st Holiday I've been in MIA (missing in action)!!! I just had so much going on in my life... Transition, Work, Personal issues, death in the family, adapting, coping, and acceptance!!! All this in one season... I think I need to divert. But before I can do that, I need to do it one baby step at a time. Time and Life, is what we all go through. There's always time for things in life... Time for compassion, Time for forgiveness, Time for acceptance, Time for Love.... etc. Now I make Time for Creativity and Time for Sharing... Here's one you can cherish through out the season (what's left of it :) Maybe you can just change the hat of the owl :) For the Santa Hat, I just used the Owl Punch and cut the owl in half and make the owl ears as the tip of Santa's Hat :) I also got some mini pom poms for the hat... doesn't it look sooooo cute!!! Always adds that extra touch when you go dimensional :) Used the glitter paper which I sooo love! Just use the Window Word punch and cut the piece in half, then shape the edges. I'll always be using this paper forever and always. Used Textured Embossing Folder where you may also use any kind. I used a stamp set called "Merry Merry Messages" but I'm not sure if it's retired or not. Then I heat embossed the stamp image with Gold Embossing powder :) It took awhile if you are making alot of this cards, but it was fun making them :) You can find a Polka Dot DSP anywhere these days... it's just darling to use them with a Santa Hat :) hihi.
BTW, I made these owls with my Tags this year and they look so AWESOME!!!!Have fun making them :) Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

GOBBLE GOBBLE!!! Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!!! This year's turkey may have to be put on hold but I just could not resist doing it on paper for you :) I brought out my Blossom Box Die #123127 and just thought it would be perfect for a turkey's body. Then came the head and the feathers :) The Head was made using the following: - Scallop Oval Punch (for the turkey's face) - 3/4" Square Punch (for the top hat) - Window Punch (for the hat's rim) - 1/2" Circle Punch (for the turkey's eye balls) - Owl Punch (use the medium circles for turkey's black iris) - Petite Pennants Builder Punch (for the turkey's neck) - Blossom Petals Builder Punch (smallest petal for the turkey's beak) - Heart to Heart punch (use the big heart for the Turkey waddle, use red glitter paper to add some highlight) The Feathers: Use 4 colors of Cardstock and punch all four petals each) - Blossom Petals Builder Punch (use the biggest petals for the tail feathers and Smallest, Medium, Large for the wings) - Emboss the tail feathers to give more texture - Use Glue Gun to adhere your feathers and turkey head on the box Well I think that's it!!! Enjoy making your turkey box!!! It's sooo cute and attractive on your Thanksgiving Table :) I hope this was not too late to post but you can always use it next year. I always thank the LORD for having my blog friends and followers around. You all keep me inspired to create and go on.

BOO!! It's Halloween again and I could not pass up this opportunity to share with you a Halloween creation this year. With a box pattern I featured recently, I made Mickey's version of a pirate for Halloween. It came out really cute!!! hehe. All I had to do was just punched out a 1" circle of Basic Black and cut it in half to use as an eye patch to Mickey. Then cut approximately 2-1/2" to 2-3/4" strip to make the strap of the eye patch and adhere on top as illustrated (just trim excess piece). The colors of Halloween was not too hard to decide on. You may play around with the shades of Orange, Green, Purple with Black. Then you got your traditional Halloween colors! These boxes can be used as treat boxes for any occasion!

In remembrance of my departed Mother, here is a pin I made and have been wearing in memory of her passing away last month as a result of cancer. May God bless her soul. She had battled cancer for over 20 years but with age, she just had to resign to the disease. This month of October, the breast cancer awareness month, I would like to dedicate this pin to all those who have survived, battling and past away because of this disease. May it empower and remind us that we have a duty to ourselves to prevent this cancer. And also remembering that we have cancer but cancer does not have us, too. May God Bless Us All and keep us safe. I found some jewelry boxes from a department store that my sister stored away and found use for them. I took a 3x3 "Pretty in Pink" SU! cardstock and embossed it to cover the top of the box. I also cut a 3 x 3 "Very Vanila" SU! cardstock and stamped it with a caption "Hope is... believing in a brighter tomorrow" from an retired SU! Stamp Set, then adhered the caption behind the cover of the box. With the ribbon, I cut a 6", 7/8" black grosgrain ribbon and slant-cut both ends. With a 3/4" pink grosgrain ribbon, I cut a 3" piece to stick it to the right side of the crossed-ribbon. Just to put a little touch to it, I added a pink rhinestone "stick-on" to it, as illustrated. Use glue gun to piece the ribbons together. I also used a 1" bar pin and glued it behind the ribbon vertically. NOTE: position the pin fastener on top for easier pinning.
The design of this ribbon was researched by my brother. A pink ribbon connotes a survivor or a cancer patient and a black ribbon with a pink half ribbon signifies that a love one passed away.I dedicate this post to my mom. May you rest in peace, mommy. I love you and I miss you. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!
