If you’re following the hop, you’ve arrived here from Ann Gerlach’s blog.

Now to share my projects with you, using products from the new catalogue:


This is meant for decoration only and would be a sweet gift as a congratulations for the birth of a baby. Little pegs could be added to the line to hand ‘dummies’ from and small things could be used to decorate the saucer.



  • Card – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz
  • Big Shot – Spiral Flower Originals and Baby’s First
  • Punch – Blossom
  • Stamps – Something for Baby
  • Ink – Pink Pirouette
  • Baker’s Twine – Whisper White
  • Pearl Basic Jewels

My next project is a little box made from Whisper White card and designed especially to fit 3″ x 3″ note cards and envelopes. It would make a great gift for someone who likes to add little notes to gifts or send to friends.

It has 5 little notes cards and envelopes but could easily hold more. The base of the box is lined to hide the pieces holding the box together.

I made little tags using scrap pieces of the DSP and punches and tied it to the twine holding the box closed.

My last shares are some little boxes made specifically to hold tea light candles. These make great gifts for many different people and for those hard to find an appropriate gift for.


These are quite quick and easy to make and fit 4 tea light candles, neatly inside. You can make them with or without a window in them and add a gift tag to the ribbon closure.


I’ve used a couple of punches adhered together to make the gift tags. You could easily add another punch in Whisper White for the giver to write a note on for the recipient.


You can see on this box I’ve used the double tag and I’ve used a punch to make a window in the box lid revealing the candles. There is window sheet over the punched shape on the inside of the box. You could just as easily place chocolates or other similar items inside the box.



  • Card – Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White
  • DSP – Moonlight DSP Stack
  • Punches – Modern Label, Word Window, Scallop Oval and Large Oval
  • Stamps –  Lots of Thanks and Teeny Tiny Sentiments
  • Baker’s Twine – Whisper White
  • Ribbon – 3/8″ Stitched Satin Blackberry Bliss
  • Ink – Blackberry Bliss

  1. Great gift ideas – thanks for sharing. I love the baby flower pot basket – what a fabulous idea!

  2. These are all lovely projects Libby. The little Baby pot would be great for a Baby Shower. Love the box and notecards and the tealight box. They all show off the great new products. You have been busy!

  3. Fantastic creations Libby! Love them all! Especially love the flower teacup! Very cute! Thanks for sharing!

  4. There are many types of gifts that can be given for Father’s Day.

    Cufflinks, money clips, and business card cases are just a few gift items that are
    possible to personalize these days. A while back I dated
    a guy for about two years, he was the best “gift giving” guy I’ve
    ever met in my life.
