For the Diva

Hello all!

Sorry it has been awhile.  I will try to keep up.  So I have a besty that collects pins.  She loves them.  She also is a shop-a-holic.  A couple of years ago I bought her a book about Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, My Life in Pins.  Ms Albright is a huge collector an interseting read, pictures of her pins, where she got them from and why she wore them whaen she did. 

That being said,  I now buy a pin for my friend for the special events we share.  Her birthday was this month so I had to do a diva card and a box to send her pin in.

So cricut here I come,  I used the Foreever Young Cart for the first time.  I look through my pile of paper and came across a pack of paper I purchased at Marshalls for 5.99.  This paper pad had 48 sheets, cream and blck papers and texture!  Some of the paper is ? fuzzy? suedy?  Anyways I love it.  the paper stack was DCWV La Creme stack.

I created a Shoe card and a matching Purse gift box that was the perfect size for a pin.

Try this for the Diva friend in your life!


Show me the cards for one of your besties.

Scrappinly Yours,

Gigi

  6. Gigi, this is too cute! I made a shoe card for a friend of mine with this cart, but it wasn't as cute as this! I know your friend loved it! Here's a peek of my card here: http://www.onecraftyncpeach.blogspot.com/2011/05/card-with-little-kick.html

  9. Thanks Miss Lela, Scrapping Sister, Treva and Dainty Dive. ScrapHapppy, I love this paper, the only thing about getting paper from Marshall's or Ross you can buy more and you have to try and research where it was really from.
