Puppy Love

I was cleaning up my mess of a craft table & found this little pup left over from my last workshop. Didn't want to waste him & since I am supposed to be cleaning I made a super simple card. He needed another "puppy" element so I used my heart to heart & word window punches to create a bone template. Traced, cut it out, stamped & there you have it! Stamp is from the Three Little Words set. It was #1 on my list of must haves. Love it! Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful weekend!

Quickie Valentine Treats!


I am makiing some quick treats for my 2 daughter's dance classes. They have 3 classes between them so here are 2 of the treats I have made so far. I have learned that kids will rip through anything if there's candy involved so now I go super super simple. Its better than spending hours on something the kids will destroy in a matter of seconds. For the heart treats I just wrapped 3 cherry andes chocolates with a 1"x3 3/8" black band then stuck the hearts to that. The butterflies were made with the new SU butterfly die. My 3 year old cut them all, then I stamped, & punched a hole while they were folded in half, threaded the curling ribbon through & tied the suckers on. Sooooo easy & very cute! Thanks for stopping by today.

Very Cool Idea!


I saw this great idea on Andrea Walford blog http://andreawalford.com/?p=1254 about making a Stampin Up product sample book & I just had to get started on mine right away! I figured I would start with the designer paper samples first. Then hopefully ribbons, glitters, etc.. It will be great to show people what the actual products look like! Sometimes the catalog just doesn't do them justice. The pages will go in to sheet protectors in a binder. If anyone is interested in doing a 2x2 paper, glitter, ribbon, or accessory swap so you can make your own sample book let me know. I was thinking you could also send the white cardstock with your swap items & I could print out all the pages for you & send them back with you swap items then all you have to do is assemble the pages. If I get enough people interested I will post a sign up sheet. Thanks for stopping by!
