My Scrap Chick Java Gift Set

Good Morning Friends!! Well, it's an allergy free day so far! Gosh, it feels awesome to start my day without a runny nose and sneezing!! Yay! Well, I created a bunch of gift sets. I didn't fill in the rest of the boxes because I'll be donating these gift sets to my church. Honestly, I don't know what they are going to do with my projects. I didn't ask. I hope they'll find good use for them.

I used the myscrapchick digital image that were free for those who are fans of the Facebook fan page. If you have a Facebook account, be a fan of myscrapchick. . .there's a bunch of free digital images for the taking: Click Here. also provides free files each Friday by signing up for their newsletter: Click Here

Here's the set of cards that matches the boxes. The design is very simple but I think the bow really makes the cards look like more work went into them. You gotta love pretty ribbons, huh?

I messed up on the sets. . .I created 3 boxes with this design, but only created two cards with the same designer paper and I created 2 boxes with another design but only three cards with that design! Ugggh! Oh well. It's okay. . .the designer paper designs are different but the image are the same so they'll still work.

I colored the images with my Copic Markers and added SU Crystal Effects to the image to give the coffee mugs a glassy appearance! I used the "30 Boxes and More" file set to create the boxes and cut them on my Cricut Expression. It was actually really quick to create the gift sets . . .assembly style creations are the easiest to create because the designs are similar. .it's a matter of cutting the designer papers and coloring the images. The best thing to do is to keep the design simple.

Cards and Project Details:

Stamps: digital image (Facebook Fan Page)
Papers: Stampin Up designer paper and card stock (Pretty in Pink, Bravo Burgundy - I think)
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: "30 Boxes and More" files, Cricut Expression, SU Crystal Effects, SU ribbons, Nestabilities, SU Word Window Punch

Before I go, I'd like to share this inspirational song by Britt Nicole. She doesn't have an official video for this song. . .a lot of Christian Bands don't have video's for their songs. I think I'll create my own. . :) It's been something I've been meaning to do. I have the Sony Vegas Movie Studio. . .such an awesome program and I should use it more often . Anyway, listen to the song. . .I think it'll make you smile. . .:)

Hope y'all have a wonderful Wedensday!!

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me Maria! These are fabulous as the rest of your projects...I too, have the Cricut Expression but haven't used it much. I was looking into purchasing SCAL 2.0, but am a little intimidated. Is it user friendly? Thanks for the daily inspiration!

Fellow So Cal Girl,

I listened to the video you posted, and it was like I was meant to just "find" your blog, (through Card of the I am going through some troubling times, and left my faith behind 13 years ago when my partner died suddenly. So thanks for posting that, it helped a little bit.
