Pion Mother's Day Card Box

Hello everyone!
 Ever hear of the Mini Pizza Box? I found the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers and thought it was soooo cute. You can find the tutorial HERE. The directions is for a 4x4 box, but I altered the measurements to make a 3x3 box. I like tiny!!
Anyways, I used the gorgeous papers from Pion For Mother collection. The paper is sturdy enough to make the box...not to mention beautiful!

This here is the outside of the box.

Inside the box sits a cute little card. There's still enough room for a little trinket or gift.

Scrappy Hugs!

Baby Girl *DT work for PION*

Hello there, my friends! Today I'm sharing a page I did using the Pion Designs, For Mother, paper collection. When I got these papers a few weeks back, I thought they would be perfect for a baby page. The colors are so soft and I just love the flowery designs. Enjoy!!

Baby Girl

Until next time....

Swirlydoos April Project Kit Canvas Journal

Swirlydoos April Project Kit is the Prima Mixed Media Album. Or as I call it "Canvas Journal".  I don't dabble much in mixed media, although I had tons of fun putting this together. Lynn, our mixed media expert,  did a video tutorial working with the kit. She gave us lot of tips that followed and made it easy. You can find the video HERE. I decided not to use photos, just lots of embellies!!!

Here is the front cover.

This the first page.

Second page

Third page

fourth page

And finally the back cover.

I didn't use all the inserts and I plan to add more pages in the future. Maybe as I pick up more techniques. :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
