Notecards and Pouch

Okay - this is so cute. I just love it. These notecards and pouch are made from some of the Sale-A-Bration sets along with the Designer Series Paper and Ribbon. I love the color combo and even though I used a little bit of Chocolate Chip it was not the dominate color :) Funny thing is when I was talking to Ashley she was trying to avoid using Chocolate Chip as well on some of the cards she was making.

Time to Sale-A-Brate

I am really loving the new Scallop Edge. It is so beautiful. This is another case from SCS. I have to go back and look everyone up. This layout is so versatile. You can change out the colors with any color combo that you like. This is one of the free stamps that you can get through March 31st with a $50 order.

Valentine Box

Part of the Old Fashion Valentine Swap is creating a box for your valentines. The boxes will be judged. There are 4 of us that coming in from out of town. For us four we were given the option to make our own box or someone in Dallas would make it for us. I debated and debated on this. I wanted to make my own but so did not have the time. Look how often I have stamped these past several weeks. Nothing - as there has been no blog postings. So a friend in Dallas took a picture of one of the boxes and sent it to me. No more questions for me - I would be making my box :)

Now I was stressing cause I had no idea how elaborate I should be. Time is still an issue. Then I saw the cutest Valentine box on Becky's blog. I almost had to resort to going to a scrapbook store cause I did not order any Rockabilly Paper. When I see something I like I usually have to copy it verbatum and then alter the second one. So I was stressing as I had no Black Polka Dot Paper. I checked with Ashley and she had a 6x6 square she could spare :) but I needed more. I decided to change the colors and venture out on my own to make my box - inspired by Becky - in different colors.

Here is Becky's Box - Cute - huh :)

And here is my box. I had to put ribbon in both directions to help hide the seam so the ribbon tie did not look right on the top. But I love these colors and the Always DSP. What do you think?

Top of Box - Lid

Lid and Side:

Side of Box:

Paper: Regal Rose, Always DSP, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Circle # 2, Big Shot, Dimensionals, Circle Cutter, Large Heart Punch.

We are doing an old fashion valentine swap at work next week while I am in Dallas. We have about 45 people in the department but I really know about 12 of them. So I made these valentines for the team that I work with. The others will receive a store bought valentine. I'll add chocolate so it is more special :) I got the idea on SCS - where the box is made from two sizzix envelopes. Way quick and easy to put together.

Stamps: Love You Much, Holidays and Wishes
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Candy Lane DSP
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Punch, Riding Hood Red stripped ribbon, Big Shot, Envelope Die, Dimensionals.
