He’ll make a box to put it in! Or at least I would! LOL!

Did you ever read that book? “If you give a mouse a cookie”

That is what this next image reminded me of!


Cookie Box top view

Keep in mind I HATE mice and rodent! But he was cute. So I accepted him into my stamp room.

I designed this cute little box. . The way it folds together is really cool! I’ll share that very soon!! I was proud that I could do this with a heavy, groggy head.

It uses a stamp  from a set by Cookie Crumbs (aka Diane Zechman) called Cookie Jar, and Cookie Jar-gon (not that is a pretty  darn clever name!). It is due to release through All That Scraps, on Monday the 2nd. Be sure to enter to win this set—>HERE!as well as check out the DT samples!

I think the set is cute, but that mouse and cookie jar were the images that grabbed me most. Now I can torture you with what has tortured me since making it-

Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?

(Insert name) stole the cookies from the cookie jar!

Who me?!

Yes you!

Couldn’t be!

Then who?

When who?

Now repeat 100 times!

Front view


The box is a flap open/hinge  style box

Its great because you can use 2 colors of cardstock or patterned paper.

That holds a tin of 5 cookies 😀 Like a cupcake box, only it is holding a tin instead. I have been asked NUMEROUS times to create a “cupcake” box, and so I have done something similar-finally! No worries I’ll share the how-to’s soon!!

Here is the side view-


Its a great size box too! Im over the moon with it.

I cut out a circle in the top so you can see the tin. I didn’t put acetate over the window because of photographing (didn’t want a GLARE), and the cookies are protected in the tin inside.

Here is the open view


Sorry I didn’t get all fancy decorating my tin. I had all I could do to make the box and still be standing :C But you get the idea.

So that is that!

Now I’m going to move onto the sketch and wrap up this post



Here is the sketch. I loved the sketch but had a hard time coming up with anything :C

I had to get a baby card in the mail so I created this

Baby Makes Three


EEK! Bad lighting-sorry

I love this image from Stampavie called Jump into my pouch! You can also find that HERE!

I think its just so sweet, and perfect for a baby card! Especially for a mom of more than one “roo” I find that finding images for the celebration of additional “additions” can be challenging. So I was “bouncin” (sorry had to do it) over this one.

I was inspired by my ribbon for my color scheme. Seemed to be very gender neutral.

I colored with my copic markers, and sponged my sky and sun. I used prima’s and decorated them like the flowers in the image.

This sentiment from Papertrey Ink Bitty Baby Blessings, paired with Around and About sentiments.

One of my friends is due to have her 3rd baby soon, so I thought it was cute to have the Kangaroo and her three little babies in her pouch.

How cute are these little roo’s


I love the middle one – upside down! Cute little feet. That is the cutest thing about new babies!! There tiny toes.

Well I’m done for today! Tomorrow I have a special Papertrey Ink Post to kick off the anniversary countdown! You WON’T want to miss it 😀

In the meantime-I hope YOU get to try the sketch, and get a chance to see what the sketch team got done.
