Boxes and cards and candy, oh my!

So, I am REALLY loving this paper pack, and the colors!! I have made more with it than anything else! (well, unless you count the 50 card workshop that I did with the Jingle pack!) These browns and reds and pinks and greens work so well together, it is just awesome! (and that’s what CTMH is all about, making things simple!)

So, there is this challenge blog, called JUGS (tehehe) It’s Just Us Girls, and they post a sketch/challenge each week for everyone to contribute to, or use to get their mojo back. They have some pretty awesome stuff! And they are having a DT call (see vocab lesson below!). Well, of course I want to apply, that means I get to craft stuff more!! So, they had a sketch for us to use to make our cards, and we were to make a card and a 3-D object. And let me tell you, there are some pretty cool entries in this so far! (I haven’t checked today, but there are likely more!) And, if you know me, I *have* to be different a bit . . . so . . . of course I am! I took the shapes that they had in their sketch, and used different shapes, and a different size card than most people make. Then I made a CAS 3-D box. But, what if it’s too plain? I thought. So, what do I do? Make another that is exactly like it! LOL (they will be perfect little teacher thank you boxes, since they are cute and small and involve chocolate!) So, then I think, well, I have to do something else too . . . so, I made another box. Both boxes are created completely by me, from the seeing of similar boxes online in various places, to creating the pre template to the template, to the final carrying out of the project. And, this may sound like I am tooting my own horn, but I LOVE how they turned out!!

Earlier in the week, I finished a box, that probably should have been sent out already to my contest winner on my FB fan page, but it hasn’t been sent yet (getting it in the mail tonight/tomorrow, I promise!!) so I took some much better photos of it too! And that cute little envelope? I made that too! So, all of the boxes you see here are my own templates, my own designs, and CTMH papers! (as are all the ribbons, and stamps, and buttons & brads)

I hope you like them all!

Oh! I forgot the vocab lesson!! Apparently, there is a difference between the digi scrapping world and the paper world. If you are a digi scrapper, and you create pages for a site or designer, you are on a CT (Creative team). If you are a designer, and you join a site/store, you are then on the site/store’s DT (design team), meaning you are making the papers and elements for the individual kits. If you are in the paper world, and you create pages/cards/projects, you are on a DT (design team).
