Look closely... this is made with a Stampin' Up! container the brads and buttons come in. I used a 4 x 9 piece of designer paper and rolled it into a tube shape then glued it to the inside bottom half of the container. Of course you don't glue the top because it needs something fun inside. :) And of course you can make them tall or small depending on the size you want to cut your paper. Fun huh!?

It seems like forever since I made a card, and every holiday deserves a card. :) I wasn't fond of this particular stamp in the, "mixed bunch" stamp set. It seemed a little busy for my taste. Then like everything else...once I saw it in action, I loved it. :) The blossom punch was another one of those, "don't need it" punches, because it's just "another flower." You'd think I'd learn... it wasn't "another flower" it was "another must have", especially after seeing it used EVERYWHERE! :) Duh...the stamp set needs the matching punch. :)

Considering Easter is only a few weeks away, I thought I better get started on Easter projects. :) This little basket was made with the largest flower on the flower folds die. I made a one inch belly band and placed it on the inside so I'd have something to glue the folded petals onto. It helps give it stability too.

I love die cuts, so of course I was excited when Stampin' Up! came out with this adorable petite purse die cut. It will be in the new catalog in June. It's a sneak peak right now, but will be available for everyone to order during the "Summer Smooches Special Offer" coming in April.

My daughters birthday is in a few days and I'm going to hang this on her bedroom door. I'll have to fill it with a couple of girly things and money. Every teenager wants money. :)

A fun little treat for St. Patrick's Day using the labels collection framelits die. A small label glued to a larger label with a slit for the pocket, fits the chocolate treat perfectly.

I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for projects, so when my daughter made these delicious oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies I knew I had the beginings of my next project. :) I knew this cookie would never last until March 17, so I needed to get busy. :) I created a cover to fit a 4x6 cello bag and used the circle scissor plus to cut a 3 inch circle exactly where I needed it. The stamp is from, It's a wrap holidays set.

The hearts from the hearts collection framelits die can also be used to make a shamrock like the one I made on this fancy favor . I'm glad there are more uses than the obvious for the MANY items I purchase. :)
