Nothing is safe in my house!

And i think that with this post my husband would agree with me!

Absolutely NOTHING is safe in my house....from being Scrapbooked or used as a Scrapbooking Prop! lol

What did i use this time?

A muffin.

For my most recent project for My Scrap Chick I knew exactly what i wanted to do!  Well....almost.  I originally wanted to make a basket for a Cupcake.  A Spring Cupcake.  A pretty yellow frosted Spring Cupcake.  But then reality set it....what if the icing started to melt. And then what if the icing decided to get all over my paper before i took a photo of it?  So i re-evaluated and decided to create a "Spring Muffin Basket".

Here's what i came up with:

Please note:  No muffins were harmed in the creating process. And as a matter of fact the muffin in question has been securely placed back into the oven where it was "hiding".  Or in other husband can enjoy the muffin now.  :-)

Here's a photo to prove that there is a muffin in there....

This project is super easy to recreate!  And you can customize it for any occasion...Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas, Easter...countless other occasions! Just change the colors add in another accessory like a Christmas Tree, Easter Bunny whatever...add a Banner and voila!  A Super Cute little gift!  

Here are the files that i used  My Scrap Chick: (just click on the file title and it will take you right there!)

I hope you enjoyed my project!  And I hope that it may have inspired your to create your own little treat basket!

Thanks for visiting!

A St. Patrick's Day Celebration Frame!

Like i said before I LOVE my box frames.

They are easy to decorate and require little space to put on display, which is why it appeals to me.

This month's box theme is St. Patrick's Day.  And it's easy to do, especially since the Box Frame created in February can easily be customized with all new cards that i created especially for St. Patrick's Day!

When i first began creating these box frames i decided to use a base color that can be used with every theme i could think of. Which is why i chose black paint and black glitter.  You of course can customize to your favorite color.  Since black is one of my most favorite colors, it works for me.

I used two files from My Scrap Chick.  The first Cutting File Set that i used was the Lucky Rainbow Bears

And the second file i used was the Fall Pennant

If you wanted to add more to your display, you could also cut out some Shamrocks and place those in some 5x7 frames and place on either side of the Display Box.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my first project for March!  As you can tell, i love working with little pieces of paper, putting them all together and seeing what i can create!  It's alwasy a surprise!

Speaking of Surprises....anyone want to take a guess at what my next project will be?

Here's a's not a box frame!

Happy Creating!
