Shamrock Box

I made this box months ago and set it aside until I knew what I wanted to do with it. If I remember right, I found the instructions on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I can't remember so I can't give that person credit :(  It's made with a card from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits. Due to the green stripes, I decided it would make a great St. Patrick's day project, and it did.

Chocolate Bunny

I specifically chose blue paper to make a guy friendly treat, then I went and stuck a bow on it (I couldn't resist), now I'm thinkin' maybe not so guy friendly. What do you think? It's soooo hard to make things for guys.  Anyway, I made this little bunny with a heart, small oval, 3/4 circle and bow builder punch. It's a fun way to make a small Hershey candy bar extra special for Easter.

Mini Birthday Treat Bag

The mini treat bag thinlit is so easy to assemble and perfect for holidays or celebrations. I'm trying to build a birthday stash, that way I'm prepared for the birthday that sneaks up on me. ;) I made this bag so it can be given to a guy or girl.

St. Patrick's Keepsake

I made one of these for Valentine's Day and liked it enough to make it again, only this time for St. Patrick's Day. 

Flowered Polka Dot Box

The inspiration for this box came from the Chalk It Up To Love, Paper Pumpkin. I made my flower with the Blossom punch. I cut a 1" X 8" strip of black paper and cut it with the fringe scissors to make the center of the flower. I like how feminine the box turned out. 

Pansy Thank You Card

I can't believe how many cards I've been making. It's not like me :) This card has an unusual color combination, but it seems to work.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Valentine

I've been wanting to make one of these chocolate covered strawberries for such a long time, so no better time than Valentine's Day :)  You can find several versions of it on Pinterest.  I made mine with the Petal Cone and Flower Folds dies. It easily holds jewelry or chocolate, the favorite Valentine gifts :) 

Be Mine Cute Conversations

Here's a quick Valentine I made with the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin. The feather on the arrow is made with one of the tags included in the kit. 

Valentine Jar Card

This card is so plain, so simple and so cute! :)

Heart Pouch

My favorite part of this pouch is the bow. I made the pouch with the two largest hearts in the Hearts framelits.  I completely forgot this bow is in the Cutie Pie thinlits, until I spotted it on a project in the catalog.  I guess that's what happens when you have waaaay too many framelits. Wait! What am I saying, you can never have too many! :) 

Valentine Fry Box

I don't like January, but I do like February, because I "love" (pun intended) making Valentine projects!  This is the fry box die. I cut it twice, cut off the front pieces and glued together the two back pieces.

Flowered Heart Box

I used the gift box punch board to create this small box. I especially like how the two hearts with the flower look on top. Pink, brown and red make the best Valentine colors.

Happy Valentine's Day Card

I love how simple and elegant this card looks.
