So its been a while...

But I was a busy little beaver all day yesterday, making paper stuff, fun paper stuff, REALLY fun paper stuff :D. I can see these are going to be some of my favorite things to create for a while...

First up, the cutest thing ever, an all paper picnic basket, which I downloaded the template for at for $5

I printed the template onto the card stock on my printer, cut it out, scored it on my scor-pal, punched the decorative top flap with a border punch, and then used scor tape to adhere it together. Colored the greeting farms little red riding hood Anya stamp in with my copic markers and voila, here we have an adorable little picnic basket which I will be sending to my grandmother who just had surgery, if I can find the patience to lug my fit throwing 2 year old to the post office with me ;)

Next, a set of mini milk cartons and a cute matching carrier that I will probably use to send a teacher a gift on her birthday. Template also downloaded from

Template was again printed on cardstock, then it was cut out, scored, put together with scor tape and then decorated with my awesome new pink and black paper stack from the hobby lobby, which I got during the 50% off paper sale. Holes punched in top with crop-o-dile, ribbon weaved into holes, and corners of holder rounded with a crop-o-dile corner chomper.

And last but not least, my Jamie Fraser/Outlander inspired pocket calendar. Image also from the freeting farm. blank pocket calendar came from
