My neighbor expressed to me one day that she was seriously interested in learning how to make cards. The problem is that she is extremely busy and hard to pin down. Perfect solution? Make a card kit for her birthday! In this kit for her I have two designs and 4 cards she can make. Everything is stamped and cut. I also included pictures of the finished cards in the kit. All she will have to do is glue it all to the card. She loved it. It was one of those gifts that I was really excited to give and it cost me nothing! (but time) I love it when that happens! The stamp set used for these cards was "Eat Cake" from stampin up.

This card was made using my favorite color combination, blue and brown. The stamp set used for this card was "Eat cake" from stampin up. It doesn't show up very well in the picture but the candles are glittered. I have had these small bottles of glue glitter that have been just sitting in my craft drawers forever. I have no idea why I originally bought them but I'm glad that I was able to find purpose for them again. The card size is 5x5

I made this card and chocolate box set for my mom. She loves the color purple and green so I decided to take on the challenge of using that color combination. I was very pleased with the outcome, as was my mom. She told me that she opened the chocolates very carefully so that she could save the wrappers! Most of the cake on the card was cut out with my cricut. The icing was hand cut and dry embossed. The card size is 5x5.

I had this card that I had started working on over a week ago. One of those projects you set down and remember to finish sometime later (I have lots of those). Well I was happy that I did because I really wanted to post this one in time for Valentines day. A friend of mine had a cuttlebug embossing machine that I used for the white backround of this card. Had so much fun with the machine that I ended up buying one as an early b-day present for me. My b-day is next month, so I could justify it. Plus it was on sale!

Here is the second project I have been working on. I saw these fun dip packets for Valentines and of course bought them with an idea in mind of what I was going to do with them. These are the valentines that my kids get to pass out for their classes. On the front of the heart is a monogram letter for each kids name. Its so nice to have the Cricut machine!(letters and hearts were cut with it.) Inside is a fun dip packet and valentine card. Here is also the template I made up for it.

I am very excited to start my new blog and even more excited to share my passion for scrapbooking, papercrafting, and anything to do with creating art in some form. So seeing how Valentines is almost here I will be sharing a couple of projects I have been working on for that. This 1st project are chocolate boxes made with hershey treasure nuggets. If anyone is interested in the template to make the chocolate box let me know. I used acetate paper for the cover and stamped paper covers for the chocolate nuggets with the polka dot backround stamp from stampin up. They were very fun and fairly easy to make. They make perfect gifts for teachers.
