A Floral Theme Loaded Envelope - Made it with my Cricut

Surprise!  Another Loaded Envelope!  This time the theme was FLORAL.  I am not really a "flower"-type of girl, but I thought I'd give this Shabby look a try.  This is the front.

And the backside.  I was mostly happy with how this turned out.  

 With all of the stash I have, can you believe I really didn't own any flowers?  Seriously!

 I had to go out and buy flowers just for this project.  I found some beautiful flowers at Hobby Lobby.

 You know, I love my pinks.  I only bought two small packages of flowers and then I just separated them.

 I love to add lots of textures and layers to my projects.  Some eyelash trim, rosettes, seam binding, pearls.  I loved how the half rosette turned out!  It wasn't planned, but as I was assembling it, I stopped half way through and thought... that's kinda cute!  I love it when things like that happen.

 Here are some photos of a few of the goodies inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I have more loaded envelopes coming soon!

Tiffany's Loaded Envelope - Take 2

 I created another Tiffany's Loaded Envelope.  Since I had already made one with this theme (see this post), I wanted to do something totally different on this one.  I decided to go with Tiffany & Co theme rather than Breakfast at Tiffany's.
 I love making the backside look like a totally different project.

 I think it adds a nice surprise!

 The front of the Loaded Envelope, is just surreal and calming.  It makes me want to relax.
 It's so fun to add lots of textures, layers and different elements.

 I mean... does this not scream... girly?

I used my Cricut to cut the Tiffany & Co in silver glitter and then again in Vellum.  I love it!

Here's a video if you'd like to take a closer look

Soft and Sweet Loaded Envelope

I'm still on the Loaded Envelope Kick!  Not sure why these are calling my name, but I absolutely love creating them.   Above is a photo of the front.

and, here's a photo of the back.
 It's so fun to make handmade embellishments for the inside of the loaded envelopes

 This cheeky little shaker tag really made me smile!
 And, of course, you can't have an loaded envelope without a wand!   This is one side of the wand....

 ... and this is the opposite side.

 You know, I have to add a layered tag!  It just had to be done!

 An extra handmade tag and a little "make your own wand" kit.

 And how cute is this acetate pinwheel!  I cut that with the Cricut!

 Sigh.... I just love layers

And of course.. you know I had to do it... here's a video for you to take a closer look! :)

Valentine Mini Loaded Envelope

It's Valentine's week!   Where in the world did January go?  I'm not a big Valentine Crafter, but I couldn't resist some of the Target Dollar Spot cuties.

 So, I thought, I'd make a fun Mini Loaded Envelope for my friend.  This was so much fun!  I simply created a 5 x 7 box envelope and then started to load it up!
 The teal, hot pink and light pink combo made me so happy!
 I handmade most of the embellishments that were inside.

 I used a combo of my stash and Target Dollar Spot goodies.

Here's a quick video so you can see each piece up close
