Quilt Quips

I haven't had much to share lately since I worked on Mother's Day (to give a mom the day off) and seem to have something to do everyday after school. Now that I've given my mom her card and gift I can share the fruits of my labor. And since my mom gave me her talent for crafting, an eye for design, and taught me the basics (and let me hot glue anything), she is the woman in my live I am celebrating for Verve's project parade!

She saw this card, posted here, and guessed it was hers before I could give it to her! But she didn't know what was coming with it....
As soon as I saw Quilt Quips in the Stampin Up catalog a project was born! My mom is the quilter, I'm the card maker. Once upon a time this was a nice tin of Russell Stove chocolates. When they don't sell by the sell by date we open them up for employees to eat (they're still good for me, yum!) and I asked if I could keep the box with this project in mind.
Then I (secretly) looked at different DSP with my mom to see what she liked. Washington Apple it was! Using this Unscripted Sketch I covered the top (front sentiment: May your sorrows be patched and your joys quilted). And what's a nice box without some nice cards........

In addition to some cards I posted previously here(card 2) and here, these are a few of the selection my mom got in her box of goodies:

(inside sentiment: I'm glad you're in my block of friends!)
Happy Mother's Day!!!
All the cards were made with Quilt Quips (except May your day bloom...), Washington Apple DSP, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand. If you want any specific card details just ask.


  1. Gorgeous cards and a gorgeous box! Thanks for playing along with our project parade!

  2. What a terrific gift! How inventive of you to re-use the chocolates tin and make something so pretty from it. The cards are all perfect for a quilter. The "May Your Day Bloom With Happiness" is my very favorite sentiment. I use that stamp more than any other one I own.

  3. Wow, what a wonderful project! These are great cards and a great container! Nice gift!
