You've Got Mail

Hi ya friends,
Yeeeesssss! The Walking Dead is back!!! I missed it so :( i luv that show! I have to figure out a way to be an extra. It would be AMAZING to be zombied up! Hee :)

Today I have a few Valentine gifts I worked on for V-day tomorrow. I bought some of those $1 mailboxes they sell at Target & dressed them up a bit. :)

Here's the first:

Is that girly girl or what! Well, my friend's little girl is a real girly girl so I had her in mind when I was decorating this one. The papers are Cloisonne by GCD Studios (that I've had forever and a day!) The postcard is from MFT First Class Friend, the stamps on the front of the mailbox are little MS stickers, and of course lace---> lots of lace. :)

Here's #2:

I finally cracked & used these papers I've been hoarding- Posh by Teresa Collins. Oh so preeetty! Again I added some lace & pearl trim. The flower pocket on the front of the mailbox was made from the largest flower in the In Bloom stamp set from PTI. The tickets are from the stamp set Ticket Sentiments by Whimsy Stamps. 

Number 3:

This one is very different from the rest, but I really like the sweetness of it. :) I used papers from Twitterpated by Imaginisce. The fence is an MFT die, the grass is a MS punch. I punched out a few butterflies out of vellum from a MS punch. The little strawberries are Jolees stickers. The flowers are WOC & Prima.

I had fun thinking about how to make these three different from one another. Now to fill them with even sweeter things (if I don't eat the chocolate first!)

I'll be playing along in the following challenges:
Make it Monday- Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations: Be My Valentine
The Cutie Pie Challenge: Anything but a Card
Wild Orchid Challenge: Love is...
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Pearls & Lace

Thanks so much for peeking!
Have a great day!


  1. Karli,

    ¡Están preciosos tus buzones! Mi favorito es el primero. Felicidades en un trabajo muy bien hecho.


  2. You did quite a fabulous job! They are so distinct and all so well thought out!

  3. Wow- you really fancied these mailboxes up! How cool is that! What fun you had making these- I love all of the special touches from lace to paper flowers and fences! Wow!!!

    1. Happy Valentinsday, Karli,
      your mail boxes are sooooo sweet. I wished they would sell them over here, too.
      All those little details.....
      My favorite one, is the third one. ;-)

      Big hugs,

  4. These are just adorable! I like them all but the Hello Kitty one is my fave!

  5. Oh my peas! Karli these are all so gorgeous. I see those little mailboxes at Target and don't know where to begin, so I never even purchase them. Wonder if I can still find one around, now that I've seen yours, I have an idea of where to start :)
