Here's my latest card box from Taylored Expressions. I have a friend at work who turned 50 today, so I made this for her. I see from looking at these pictures that I really need to work on my photo editing. Too little time, too much to do!

This evening I was browsing through my card ideas and came across this card. I don't remember saving it and have absolutely no idea where it came from, so my apologies to the original artist. The only change that I made was to add the ribbon. I would have preferred wide sheer ribbon, but I don't have any, so I went with this instead. All supplies, except for the ribbon are from SU. The card is much prettier in person than in the photo.

I found the tutorial for this stationery box on Splitcoaststampers. Te box itself was very easy to make, and then I made the cards and tags to put into it. It is make with double sided heavy weight patterned paper. I have lots of patterned paper, but found that not much of it is heavy enough, so I made a trip to Craft Warehouse to search some out. I found several options there and decided on this red and black.
I made the box as a birthday gift for a friend.

These are both made using the Voila stamp set that is retiring soon. I had a lot of fun making these and I'm very excited to have finally started my cookbook.

I had 4 cards and 2 other projects created, but we ran out of time, so we completed these 2 cards along with the Father's Day card that I posted previously.
There was a card in my Stampin Success magazine that had a birdhouse on the front that looked like this card. I modified it so the whole card is the birdhouse instead and I like it much better. This bird punch is so much fun to use!
Supplies: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla CS; Autumn Traditions DSP; More Mustard Ribbon.
The next card came out of the previous mini catalog.
Supplies: Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose CS; Word Window Punch, Butterfly Embosslits.
We had a great time and I'm really looking forward to our next meeting.
