XOXOXO Top Note Tote

How cute is this tote?  The pink and brown color combination, and the fact that it holds a treat, makes it an ideal Valentine gift.  It even has a little pocket for tucking in a love note. :)

Valentine Balloon Card

I made a card similar to this one last year, but this time I added a few more embellishments.  I couldn't help myself, the whimsy of the treat cup, makes it worth a re-do. :)

Valentine Flowers

Love this flower... it's the Stampin' Up!, Island Floral, bigz die.  I've had it for a while but never really tried to use it.  I'm glad I finally did because it's the funnest!  The size, shape and two different types of flowers are perfect.  I can't wait to use it again.

Loving You Heart Tote

You can't tell from the photo, but this tote has plenty of room for that perfect Valentine gift.

Valentine Envelope

I'm calling this and envelope, but it's actually made with a die cut that resembles a crayon box.  Honestly... the score lines were hard to find, so after folding just a few, I liked the look and went with it.  It opens just the same and still has room to tuck in a Valentine treat.  You just never know when an unfortunate situation will turn into a happy project. :)

Pillow Box Purse

Yes... another purse. :)  This time I used two die cut pillow boxes. The reason for two boxes is... you need to cut each one in half and glue together the same two matching pieces. You glue down the sides and across the bottom and leave the top open for access.  The closure is made with a portion of the Stampin' Up!, scallop circle die cut.  I used and upside down butterfly punch on the closure because I thought it looked like a bow and now I'm wondering if it looks like an upside down butterfly. :)

Top Note Floral Purse

I don't think I'll ever get tired of making purses.  There are so many different ways to make them, and having so many adorable choices of paper just adds to the fun!  This is simply a 6 X 6 piece of paper folded in half.  Then I measured in 1/2 inch on the top and cut diagonally down to the fold.  The top note die cut makes just the right closure.

Bath Time Cupcake

This is for one of those stressful days, when you just need some "me" time. :)  I put some bath confetti inside for a little added surprise.

Valentine Treat

I hope it's not too early for Valentine projects, because there are soooo many fun things to create for this lovely holiday. :)

Snowman Container

I have so many of these containers.  You know... the ones the buttons, brads, etc. come in.  I needed to come up with some way of using them.  I know Christmas is over but the snow isn't, so why not a snowman.  He's made with several different punches and a bit of ribbon for the scarf and more importantly it's filled with hershey kisses.  :)
