For Melysa ~ Handmade Gift Exchange Part 1

I had so much fun participating in the Craftaholics Anonymous biannual handmade gift exchange. Once I was paired up with a partner we emailed each other a couple of times and shared a little about ourselves. I have to say that I had a fabulous partner and cannot wait for another exchange.

Here are the little gifts that I made for Melysa...

A charming button bracelet made with Bermuda buttons, my favorite color, from A Muse Studio...

 A cute little box for the bracelet made with matching Bermuda polka-dot paper and embellished with paper flowers and a tag...

Of course I wanted to make her some cards too!
 I made this set of four lighthouse cards using stamps, inks and papers also from A Muse Studio...

I packaged them up in a clear box and wrapped it with twine...

And because I just could not help myself, I decorated the box too...

I hope she enjoyed receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them!

I will post the wonderful gifts that she sent to me in another post.

Thanks for visiting!

Monday, July 4, 2011 is good!

At the moment my house is in complete construction chaos but I am not stressed at all. Why? Because I am not there to witness any of the disaster!! My wonderfully talented hubby is home slaving away while I am enjoying a week at the lake with the kids, the dog and my mom. is good...for now anyway...I do have to go home eventually!
Here is a cute set of cards I made using some of the current A Muse Studio products as well as some older A Muse products and my Copics. I just love how they came out. These were inspired by a set I saw on Splitcoast, you can check them out here.

I also want to share the theme of the July Studio Spotlight which is Neighborhood Block Party and begins on the 15th. Be sure to visit my A Muse Studio Website on the 15th of this month to see the stamp sets on sale, the coordinating paper pack and an array of fabulous projects sure to inspire!

And remember, the June Studio Spotlight specials will end on the 15th of July.

Happy 4th of July!!!
