Valentines Treat

I love the way this one is packaged using Wilton Pretzel Rod bags. This is altered Peppermint Pattieis using Love You Much and the new Valentines wheel from the upcoming mini catalog. I love the polka dot ribbon to top it off.

Banner Fun

I really liked the JOY banner for Christmas. My friend Shirley and I discussed the banner and how we would like to have one for every holiday or every month. So the creations started. Here are the first three banners for January/February/March.

These are being offered as a kit on the go for those that would like to make their own set. The kit includes all supplies needed (except adhesive and ink for distressing the letters) to make your own set. Items will be cut and ready for assembly. The kit cost is $20 and includes shipping. To order a kit please send an e-mail to Please put Banner Kit in the subject line.

Altered Kit Kat Bar

Playing with the I {Heart} Hearts set and the new heart punch and embosslet die to alter the Kit Kat bar.

Gift Idea

This is one of the projects that we will be making this weekend. I got this idea off of Natasha's blog as well. When you take an everyday something - and change the packaging - it makes the gift all that more special. In this package I put a bottle of hand sanitizer. You can use any type of tube container - such as M&M mini's...

Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Merry Moments DSP

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Garden Green

Stamps: Christmas Punch, Punch Pals

Accessories: Alpine Ribbon, Snowflakes Die, Fire Circle Brad

Christmas Pictionary

I got this idea from Natasha who altered an idea she found on Ustamp. I loved how she took the tag older and turned it into Christmas Pictionary. This will be part of the Christmas Gifts class I will be having this weekend. I am looking forward to it :)

This is the box all folded up. It is tied shut with the Alpine ribbon. The ribbon can just slip off to open the game.

This is the inside of the box. Here are the two pockets that will hold all game contents.

This is the "clues" package. It will open up to display the category envelopes with the various clue words.

These are the team notebooks for their drawings. There will also be a game timer and pencils in each package.

Flight of the Butterfly Baby Shower

My sister-in-law had her second baby and I was to give the shower for her. These were the invitations that I made for the shower. I was going to use baby specific stamps, but I had attended the stamping event a couple of weeks back and Kasia showed us a cute album using the butterfly punch as a tab so I had butterflies on the mind. So I made this cute invitation using Flight of the Butterfly and the butterfly tab. I love the way it turned out. I will add other pictures once I find my USP cable :)

Then I got to thinking about the shower. I loved the invitation so much that I decided to design the whole shower around this theme. I used my Halloween Treats class as inspiration as well.

These are the water bottle holders.

This was the treat box that we gave to everyone that attended. Inside the box was a shower gel.
