Here is a birthday card that I made for a supervisor of mine!  
I used the artist impressions stamp set called girlfriends. I hope you enjoy!

I used up supplies that I had on hand.  I had paper scraps that I finally used up.  I choose colors from the polka dots to color the ladies.  I then used the nestabilities dies to cut around the image and the mats. I sponged ink around each piece. There was a scallop punch used on the polka dot paper, then I used a piece of blue ribbon that also matched.  Last but not least I put a charm in the corner with a brad.

I have not crafted too much since Christmas.  I have been trying to reorganize my craft room.  
Here is a simple project that I did so I can hold my 8 1/2 x 11 paper. 
I created this using a cereal box and some of my favorite fun frog fabric.  

SUPPLIES:  cereal box, fabric, spray adhesive, scissors, pen / marker,  ruler 

I watched videos on YouTube on how many people did there boxes.  I had another box that I liked the height of, so I marked it on the cereal box.  Cut the tabs off the top, marked at the top where I wanted a ledge to be.  Drew a line from the top to the bottom, then used the scissors to cut it.  Measured out some fabric to ensure it would cover the whole box.  Sprayed it with adhesive and wrapped it around the box. The extra fabric was sprayed with adhesive and wrapped down to the inside of the box. I might add a little extra ribbon around the box for more decoration, but I like it!
