**I followed the directions on where to score and cut to create the box but did NOT begin to actually glue it all together until I had finished decorating it first!
I cut a strip of designer paper about 1/8" to a 1/4" smaller than back of the box and used my corner round edge punch and did a bit of distressing on it before I adhered it down to my box. Then I cut out a strip to wrap around the middle of the box part and distressed it a bit too. I tied together two small pieces of pink & brown bakers twine and stapled them down to the box. I punched out a cute little heart of Moxxie's Tiny Dancer line and layered on a Mambi sticker- love, using 3d-dots for dimension.
On the test tube measured around the test tube cut a strip of designer paper the length and width I needed. Leaving about 1/2" extra on the length to overlap. Before wrapping it around I found the middle of my strip punched a heart out and taped a small piece pink paper behind so the pink would peek through the punched out heart. Then I traced around it with a bronze Sharpie. Once I adhered the strip around the test tube I used some more pink & brown bakers twine to tie around.

This handsome man is my husband, he was trying on some different outfits for a harlam shake video a bunch of his friends were putting together. This is not the outfit he went with but I did manage to get a picture or two before he changed. Honestly I didn't think he would ever let me use this photo, but I've got some pretty awesome persuasive skills. ;)
I had a ton of fun putting this layout together with all these fun St. Patrick's Day papers! I started with a sketch from MS&M, made my own clover stencil out of paper scraps and used it while misting my layout background. It ended up looking so nice with all the mist on it that I included it on the layout!
Add a little bling, this fun rub-on from the Valentine line and some doodling and you wouldn't even know I only made it for stenciling.
For my title area I layered and stacked different stickers and rub-ons from this awesome St. Patrick's Day line. Easy and fun!
Happy Valentine's Day Moxxie fans! Dana here today sharing some upcycled candy boxes. I started with two empty embellishment boxes and I covered them with patterned papers from the NEW Gymnastics collection. The beautiful shades of purple and pink were perfect for Valentine's Day!
I embellished this paper covered box with patterned paper and a rub-on from the XOXO collection.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner ( I know I can't believe it either). I love to make special cards for my loved ones and today I have two of them to share with you. I used the How do I love thee? collection. This is an oldie but a goodie collection.
For this card I used the paper along with the awesome rub ons and cardstock stickers.
Next, I have a tag card.
Once again I used the rub ons and cardstock stickers for this.
I have made a quick video for you today on the techniques that I used to make these cards. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will be back next month with a new sketch and projects! See you then. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
Hello Moxxie fans! It's Misty here with an ADORABLE gift cardholder, along with a CUTE Valentine's card. I know sometimes I dislike giving "just" a gift card to someone, but why not make one of these quick and easy gift card holders.
Anyone would LOVE to get one of these little creations, along with a gift card from there favorite LSS! This cute little envelope die, tag dies and stamps are all from A Jillian Vance Designs. l highly recommend taking some time and checking out their website if you are a stamp and die lover...there are some CUTE ones!!
I also created a card to go with this gift card holder. I used one of the NEW sketches from Simple Sketches:
Here is my card that I created:
This card is so fun and simple! Both the card and the gift card holder was made using Moxxie's "How I Love Thee" Valentine collection. I love the bright and bold colors and how that black makes the pattern paper POP!! The white stitching, swirls and dots, are all doodling that I did with a white pen! I LOVE the way doodling looks but sometimes I forget to do it!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope this inspires you how to creatively give your loved one or friends their next gift card!
