Endless Birthday Wishes Bag

This little bag is made with a 6 x 6 sheet of paper.  It's similar to the box in a bag design, without the box.  I found the instructions on  I'm happy she shared the instructions because it's adorable and easy to make.  Thanks Claudia!

Leprechaun Fry Box

Isn't this a fun fry box?! I wanted something a little different for St. Patricks's day this year and thought this would be fun.  I used the Fry Box Bigz, Envelope Liners Framelits and Mustache Framelits to create it. 

Yummy Big Wish

I think the monsters in the Yummy In My Tummy stamp set are so darn cute! This time I turned this little guy into a box and filled it with a couple of Hershey's chocolate caramels.  He's colored green and blue so he can be given to anyone. :)

Pretty Pocket Chocolate

You know I can never leave well enough alone. I scored a 1/4" line next to each of the pre-made score lines (towards the cutout) on the sides and bottom of one of the cards, in the Pretty Pocket Card Kit, and turned it into a pouch for candy bars. The back of the card is trimmed approximately 3/4" before it was closed. 

Balloon Birthday Bag

I can't get enough of the gold heart bags in the Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin. I'm so glad there are lots of them!  I used pool party ink to give this one an ombre appearance. The balloon is from the Balloon Framelits.

Pink Flowered Heels

Quite often I challenge myself to make something with one of my dies I haven't used in a long time. This was the case with my Sizzix Ballroom Slipper die.  Look how cute this pair of shoes turned out! This challenge was a success. I wish I could say that about other project challenges I've given myself. ;) 

Avant Birthday Wishes

When I picked the Avant Garden set as one of my free Sale-a-bration sets I second guessed myself, because I don't do much with flower stamps.  Guess what... I like it! :)  The simplicity and the sentiments make the set fun and easy to use.

Valentine's Heart Candy

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Coffee Mug

How about a little coffee mug for Valentine's Day? I used the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits to create it.  The stamp is from the Sealed With Love stamp set.  

Heart Cello Bag

I've been feeling guilty for not making more projects with my Paper Pumpkin kits. There's no harm in combing kits, right? :) This Valentine treat used pieces from three of my kits, yay!  The cello bag is from the Banner Surprise kit.  The sentiment is from the Filled With Love kit and the arrow is from the Adoring Arrows kit.  Oh, and I used my heart framelits.  Cute huh?!  

Sending Love Candy Corn

Remember when I didn't want to put away my Jar Of Haunts stamp set? Glad I didn't! I used it to create a Valentine gift tag. No "haunts" on this project, just love. ;) 

Be My Valentine Bookmark

As I was browsing through the February 2017 Better Homes & Gardens magazine I spotted this adorable Valentine bookmark.  They gave the link to a free template, so of course I couldn't resist.  For mine, I wrapped designer paper around a stick of gum before tucking it inside. This would make the perfect school Valentine, don't you think?! I think it's clever and adorable!

Sending Love Heart Box

I combined pieces from two Paper Pumpkin kits for this project. The Adoring Arrows and Chalk It Up To Love kits. Thank you Andrea Borries for the easy to follow instructions on creating this adorable box, out of the Chalk It Up a To Love card bases! The sentiment is part of the Sealed With Love stamp set. 

Sealed With A Kiss Cookie

Don't you just love the tiny little lips in the Sealed With Love stamp set? Now anything can be "sealed with a kiss" just like the cookie tucked inside this envelope. :) 

Love You Lots Chocolate

A Ghirardelli chocolate square tucks perfectly inside a die cut from the Cheerful Tags framelits with just enough room for a tiny sentiment from the Sealed With Love stamp set.
