Live, Love, Laugh

Hello friends! I hope you're having a great week! I have a little gift set to show you today.

First off, I used Lauren's My Time Made Easy template, In a Pinch, to create a little gift box. I made this for the JUGS17 template challenge. I used Kraft cardstock for my base and decorated the sides with paper from Carina Gardner's Affectionate digital paper collection by Design House Digital. It is loaded with fun Valentine's prints in pinks and green. I used the JustRite sentiment from Romantic Sentiments, "Live more Laugh often, Love much".

Once I made the box, I decided to make a matching card. The card is pretty similar to the front panel of the box. For both, I used the latest sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You, Laura's Sketch #44. I used the same sentiment, but this time I cut it out in a square instead of a heart. Both projects have a decorative punched border, ric rac, stitching and some Dew Drops as a final finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
