A Few of my favorite things

I love templates for funky boxes! This coffee tote box from Lauren Meader at MyTimeless Templates is wonderful for a variety of things. I wrapped a disposable coffee cup and used it to hold some cocoa and biscotti ;) Then I added a variety of goodies that like.

This month the SCS Creative Crew challenged us to recycle or re-use something. I had some clear cubes, leftover from Heaven only knows what, I used the Ice Cream Parlor DSP, buttons, and ribbon to turn them into gift baskets! I also did some tag art to go along with them.

Inside the box was a recycled candle ring, done in a spring motif:

Vintage Cupcake?

How about an elegant, vintage Cuppie? I got the template for this sweet box from Kelleigh Ratzlaff, at TheDigiChick.

I used SU Love Letters DSP for the box, Red Glitter paper for the cherry, and added some lace to bring it altogether. The box is quite roomie and would easily hold a real cuppie as long as you didn't do mile high frosting like I tend to do - I mean everyone knows that cake is just a means of conveying frosting to your mouth right?

Feeling Creative?

How about a challenge? Join the SCS SU Demonstrator challenges by playing along with us!

We're feeling kind of green this month! Don't worry that doesn't mean we all have the flu The crew decided to see what we could do to be part of the "green" movement. Our purpose this month was to re-use, re-purpose, re-cycle, to do a small part of preserving our planet, our history, and saving a piece of our memories to past onto the next generation.

Now we want you to play along with us and show us what you were inspired to make!
There are very few “rules” we want people to be inspired by and looking to the SU! galleries for inspiration!

All we ask is:
· The Creative Crew gallery will be generated by KEYWORDS so it is very important to remember to use them. It is easiest to just copy and paste the keywords as they are shown here to ensure they end up in the right galleries.
· The focus is on SU! products so please try to keep your projects 95% SU!
· Support each other and have FUN with this!

CCREW0311CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Catalog Focus * We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. ~ Native American Proverb I first read this quote when my children were very little, it has always stuck with me. This month along with being green let's celebrate "Growing Up" get your catalog out turn to the "Growing Up" section - pages 77 - 96 use a set from this section. If you do not have any sets from this section, make something that would delight a child.

CCREW03111DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus * Sticking with the Green theme, use the Woodland Walk DSP or the colors of: Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, & Chocolate Chip

CCREW0311HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - Holiday/Seasonal Focus * International Earth Day! This day was initiated to make earth inhabitants aware of their responsibility to care for the planet. This care includes environmental and natural resources. SU! comes up with some WOW packaging and designs in the catalog, so this month in honor of Mother Earth we're going to Re-Use, Re-Cycle, Re-Package, and Alter, there is no right or wrong here, just have fun with it!

CCREW0311SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - SB Inspiration Focus *
March 8th is International (Working) Woman's Day read the story here > International Women's DaySo are you up for a real challenge this month? Your SB focus is about YOU! Whether you work inside or outside the home, you work! So let the spouse, or the kids, or the parents, or heck even the neighbor have your camera and do a photo shoot with you as subject! Then design a page, a gift scrapbook, or a keepsake about you - your likes, dislikes, beliefs, silliness, what makes you, YOU, etc. Need more inspiration on why you should do this > YouTube - Ronan Keating - If Tomorrow Never Comes Give your family a momento about you.

Both of my samples use the color combo, and the Under The Stars set is from the "Growing Up" section of the catalog :)

Easter Bendy Fold

Playing around with Emma's Bendy fold card for Easter, need to tweak it some more. The bunny is from Blowing Kisses, and I used bleach to "de-color" him.
