Little Girls Simply love......

Good afternoon all.

Man have I been slack in posting!! I have been so busy starting out as a demo and then balancing a bunch of birthday's and other celebrations, there is oh so much to show you.

Given that I have a Miss 8 of my own, it goes without saying that I have a lot of little girl's cards and gifts to come up with. One that I have made a couple of times now is a lip gloss/balm butterfly. I find that EVERYONE likes butterflies, no matter what their age. There are many versions of these around in cyberspace, but these are what I have come up with.......

This first one has an orange glitter gloss in it that I picked up from my local Woolworths. It came in a 3 pack (with a pink and a clear one too) I used the colour of the lip gloss as the basis for my colour combination. Here is what the butterfly lip gloss holder looks like with CS only....

 
Seriously, they are very easy to do with the Beautiful Wings Bigz die and they are a massive hit. Here is the card and the small gift together......
 
 
The next set just kept getting added to. Miss 8 picked out the DSP and so this one is a mix of DSP and CS. Purely by chance the gloss colour was the same pink as the DSP!!! The gift was teamed with a small post it pad holder that I have done many times before (search this blog for post it holder for the links). I found the wee bead making set (also a dumb luck find in Big W) and then a ribbon embellishment and away we went. The small stamp on the present on the post it holder is from Pretty Petites, available until March 22nd in SAB with the matching punch. It is VERY cute and is brilliant for large cards and small. The card is a "Z" fold one.
 
 
 
 
Guaranteed smiles I promise.
 
Thanks for popping by. Plenty more to share...soon I hope.
