Sweet girl day wishes

Girl's day is coming up next week and I thought I'd make something using Dandelion's new stamps and I wanted to use up these scraps that I had lying on my table. Can you tell that I love the color pink? This paper is by Pebbles and it's 2 sided. I came across it while fixing the paper rack at the store last Saturday.
Anyways, we are using some of this paper tomorrow for the make & take at the store. Hope to see you there! Have a great weekend!!!

Baby bunny

While I was at the store over the weekend, I saw this Sizzix baby bunny die which I never used before and thought it would be perfect to make something for Easter. I made a Christmas treat holder back here in 2008 exactly like this.The eggs are from last years Hello Kitty spring release.And instead of using the MS fence punch, I decided to use this new MS punch instead. I used the Hero Arts dot cling stamp for the background. It is one of my favorite background stamps and I love dots! I actually had the regular m & m's in the bag at first but it somehow didn't match with the colors. So I found a bag of these pink and white m & m's and it looks so much better.
Hope you're having a great week so far. I can't believe how quickly the month has gone by. Thanks for stopping by today!!!

The gigantic pillowbox

Seriously, this pillowbox is huge! This pillowbox is a 12x12 die for the Big Shot Pro machine. You can fit a lot of stuff in here or even a tee shirt too. The finished box is 8" x 5". I actually had to look twice when I first saw the size of this box. LOL! Once again, all stamps used are Hero Arts. The lace border punch is a Martha Stewart punch.
I stamped the polka dots on the background with the dotted cling background stamp.
Hope you're all keeping warm today. I had to get a new battery for my car this morning. Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!!!

Hey birthday girl

I have no idea why I made a birthday card since none of my gf's birthdays are in February. But, I had this image already stamped and colored and I found the birthday wishes scrap on my table so I was able to finish this quite fast. I have been wanting to make an easel card for awhile and thought this would be perfect for it.
There are a couple of new things here that I just bought from the store. First, I had to try out this new glitter embossing powder from American Crafts. It is so pretty and embosses well. I used it on the flourish background on this card. Secondly, I just love these new large scallop oval nestabilities from Spellbinders. I bought the ovals and also the square and rectangles. All the stamps used here are from Hero Arts. I found the easel card instructions on Splitcoasters.
Well, thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful rest of the day!!!

Kathy bunny I need help...

Last night my husband said that I'm sick and need help for my shoe addiction. He's probably right. After all, I only bought 3 pairs of boots and they were all on sale. Ha!I've had this Hello Kitty die since it was first released and never used it. I thought it would be perfect with this box. It is called the round top box and is one of the Sizzix Pro dies, a 12x12 size die. The top flaps right over and tucks into the box. I like the fact that you can now use 1 piece of paper to make the boxes and bags and not have to cut 2 or 3 pieces like some of the XL dies require.
This was our make and take for this past Saturday at the store. We made a matchbook candy favor using Hero Arts dots cling stamp for the background and Dandelion stamps for the cover.
This is what the inside looked like with the lifesaver candy stapled into the matchbook. So cute and simple.This is a picture of the cute candy bag that my sweet gf Teri made for me for Valentine's Day! It is the cutest thing with a candy cup in the front of the bag filled with dew drops. She used all Stampin Up supplies to make this favor bag. As you can see, all the chocolate treats are gone because I ate them right after she gave it to me last week.
Hope you all had a nice Presiden't Day yesterday! I spent my day shopping and did quite a bit of damage besides buying all the boots. Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Tuesday!!!

I'm back!!!

I'm back, finally. I tried to post something last week but I spent most of my days catching up and working on orders. And I guess I got a little lazy myself and didn't get a chance to post these.
Then I got a bad stomach bug over the weekend and I'm feeling much better now. This bird cage is a soon to be released Tim Holtz Sizzix die. My husband got this from taking the Sizzix class at CHA. And the cute bird is a leftover from my last make & take at the store. The glitter paper is from Trimcraft.
This next box is an XL box from Sizzix called heart box with key. I poured chunky white glitter over the key. This box actually holds quite a bit of chocolate kisses. One of my husband's customers was so sweet and made us these cute tic tac holders. Not sure what company the frog stamp is from but it's really cute!
I tried to post from the show but for some reason I couldn't get my phone to upload the pictures.
Well, thanks for stopping by today and I hope to get myself back into the groove.
