Nesting boxes --- Perfect for a gift!

Good morning Wednesday! ... hope you are all enjoying your day. Yesterday I cleaned but I mean really cleaned all my craft area and it felt so wonderful after a few days of being under very tight space. Now I am feeling the happy sense of slipping back into my happy and CLEAN craft space :)
The other day while browsing I went to the Cutting Cafe blog, and when I got saw this 3 Nesting Boxes set, I knew I had to have it. Too cute! Totally great for putting a gift.

These Nesting boxes fit perfectly inside one another (without the lid of the inner boxes). They also look great stacking on top of one another (as shown here).

Anyhow, enjoy my project for today and thanks for visiting!

A Pretty Petal Pocket for a baby girl gift ...

Are you ready for some fun? As I told you before, I fell in love with the Pretty Petal Pocket template from Lauren. A few days ago one of my cousins gave birth to her first child, a baby girl named Laura, she is such a cute baby!! I bought her a pair of shoes, so tiny shoes :) but wait! THIS box was part of the gift.

Isn't it the cutest box for a gift? She liked it so much ...

Hope you liked it too.

Un post en Español ...

Hola! muy buenas tardes a todas las personas que siguen mi blog, especialmente a aquellas que hablan y entienden el español, mi idioma nativo. Decidí hacer este post, no sé por qué en español, para contarles que hace un rato llegué de una de las tiendas de scrapbook más completas y siempre al último grito de la moda en cuanto a papeles, embelishments, etc. se refiere, les hablo de Memorias de Papel (y eso que no les detallo el excelente servicio al cliente que tienen -aqui no hay publicidad por si acaso eh). Alli me encontré con par de gentes que tenia tiempo no veía. Pues nos sentamos a hablar de muchas cosas, sí, porque aparte de uno comprar, a veces nos sentamos y comentamos de los trabajos, de la vida, de los hijos, etc. y aunque no se lo crean la pasa uno de lo mejor. Porque algo que tiene este hobbie es que inmediatemente encuentras a alguien que haga lo mismo que tu, ya se hacen panas de por vida, y eso me gusta mucho.
Bueno, pues eso era lo que les quería decir, espero que la pasen bien en su fin de semana. Y para que no se vayan en blanco, las dejo con unas fotos que tomé a algunos de los elementos que van a ser parte de unas invitaciones de baby shower que estoy haciendo.

Espero que las disfruten y les sirvan de inspiración.

My Timeless Template Challenge

Hello Saturday ... Yep! my template love fest continues here with a new and completely irresistible template designed by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink. Today our challenge was to use one of Lauren's templates and use the colors in this image,

Yeah! kind of challenge within a challenge!!
So here are some pictures of my project for today:

Let me tell you that I love all of Lauren's templates, they are so easy to make and look very elegant and clean. You can use them for any special gift or just for putting things! they look beautiful anyway. Plus they are inexpensive!!

I fell in love with this particular one, I'll make more projects using this template.

Are you in the mood of making your own project? there are two templates for free at PTI waiting for you, so there are no excuses for you to not participate. If you make yours please let us know by uploading it here.
Now for some fun...lots of fun ideas waiting for you...enjoy:

I've had no time to sit and create or post and I've been missing it ... squeezing in a little time for that today. Here are just some of the things I made over the weekend ...

I used a template to make this little box, and FINALLY had a chance to use one of my newest stamp sets–this time the Jungle Pals stamp set from Sassafras Lass. Isn’t that elephant cute? I love it !!! :)

I also used my Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set from PTI for the sentiment.

Choo Choo ... You are Invited !

Hi girls, I really hope you are having a great day!! Can you believe that I made another Train card which can be used as invitation as well ? I am in a train mood lately :) and who blames me? my kiddos love trains ... who doesn't love them? they can be the perfect touch in a baby boy project! this little card is just one of my favorites, love the color combo.

I used my bug-machine to make this gorgeous project ... and the Mickey & Friends Shapes Cartridge.

This is another view of my card/invitation ...

Well my ladies, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, have a great day! :)
Catch you on Monday with more projects ...
