First aid kit

Good morning all

I was in a crafty mood last night and I have all kinds of things that I wanted to alter .

This is a small tin some people call them lunch boxes , I thought it would be cute as a First aid kit.

I am gonna put some band aids , salves all the things you would find in a first aid kit.

I think it turned out cute!

I Used

Cricut everyday paper dolls cart for the Nurse and Doctor bag

Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart for the addition sign that I used as a medic symbol

Cricut cart Indie art for the band aids cut @ 2 ins
Nurse was cut @ 3ins

Computer font ( first aid kit )

And I thought the hugs and kisses ribbon was perfect for it......

It was really easy to do and came together rather quickly.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day

Celebrate Spring

Hi all

This is my first attempt at making a recessed window card.

I found the tutorial on splitcoast stampers... but I tweaked it a little, I made a template for mine that was easier for me...

I made the card

inked it

Prima flower

wooden fence

Spellbinders nestie

celebrate spring stamp



flower stamp colored it then added pink flock and cut it out

sm bow

I had planned on putting a ribbon on one side of the card so I cut the opening off to one side ...but then I changed my mind and added the lace around the window so now it looks off center...

oh well ....other than that I think it turned out pretty good for my first time....
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
