Graduation Thank You and Some Treat Boxes

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends,

Just a couple thank you cards I made for the neighbor, so he can share them with his family. The graduation cap is from Locker Talk.
Spellbinders (Lacey Cirlces and Beaded Ovals) were used. Thanks was cut from "Just Because" Cards Cricut cartridge.
Embellishments ~ ribbon, buttons, craft thread, and liquid pearls 

Boxes and Treat Bags...
I am still trying to find some treat sacks that I can use for my students when I go back to school in the fall, and I decided to cut a variety from different Cricut cartridges. I have used Plantin Schoolbook in the past, so this time I used Wrap It Up, Forever Young, and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. These are cut in plain cardstock since they are experimental, but the students will be fancier. 
I figured out how to hide the rose cut-out on the pillow box too. That was exciting since I have been quite hestitant about using my Gypsy. I am glad it is summer, so I can continue exploring!

Which treat sack (shape and size) do you like the best?

2nd Blogoversary...
 Coming in 3 Days

Stay Creative,


  1. Great cards. I kinda like the tall blue one. It can be for either a boy or girl. Lee-Ann :)

  2. Awesome job on the cards!!I love the blue box but Whci cat did you use for the Pink bag? Oh! I want to try to make one...please,,....LOL

  3. Great cards! I really liked the Pink treat box. I thought about going through all my boxes and cutting one of each for a quick reference when I need a box fast. So I know what it will look like when it's all cut out. But I guess then there's the problem of figuring out where to store them all... hmm mm?

  4. AWESOME cards and super cute treat boxes!

  5. Love the Thank You cards! My favorite box is the one you did in brown. I made a couple and decorated them. Here is a link if you would like to see
    and one I did for my sister here

  6. Wonderful cards, what a nice thing for you to do, I am sure your neighbor appreciated them..
    I love my gypsy, glad u are having fun with yours.. Hugs

  7. Great the background paper on the grad card. The boxes all turned out great- maybe the taller blue one for the boys and the pink, purse like box for the girls?

  8. GREAT cards!!! love the pattern papers on both :)
    All those boxes are great...i think i like the tall blue one or the purple box.
    To answer your question...I sell some of my cards, save some and use alot of them. I try and make cards I know I will use so there are few hanging around
    Thanks for sharing all your fab projects and have a GREAT weekend!!

  9. GREAT cards and fun treat bags! I really need to sit and play with the boxes on my different carts too. I always need one in a rush and never have any made...good idea!
