Valentine's ATC perfect for Cards.

I made these last year for a swap.
I think they would be great for Kids Valentine's Cards.
This one is just some pretty blue card-stock as a base.
Some pink card-stock with heat embossed designs on the edges.
I stamped the card with a $1 bin stamp and embossed.
Then punched holes for blue ribbon and added a felt heart from Michael's.

These were made more for adults but I think they work for kids too,
I embossed some pink paper with a heart cuddlebug folder. Used a single sheet of valentine paper.
(I will find the name of the paper and post it). And tore up some doilies for the sides.
And last I added various rub on's.

Jo-Anns January 2012

Really hard to pick a favorite. I am loving the cut outs and tags on each stack.
Really loving the foils.

DCWV Inc. New Recollections Stacks at Michaels January 2012


I love the First stack. And I really love the All Seasons Stack.

Christmas Treat Toppers 2011

Just wanted to share the bag toppers I made for my sons class.
They were fast but I am really happy with the results.
I used Christmas Card-stock from the 
My Mind's Eye Sweet Dreams Holiday Avenue Stack (2009)
I love this stack!
I used my two favorite punches. My favorite because they are basic but you can do so much with them.

Fiskars Seal of Approval Squeeze Punch (Extra-Large) (scallop)

And two stamps of unknown origin...lol. 
One I got at a yard sale, the Christmas saying, and the other, Snowman,  in a dollar bin somewhere.
I used regular Target Brand Sandwich Bags and put the treats in.
And I used some Red & White Twine to put the finishing touch on.

Super Simple yet beautiful ornament.


I made this ornament after seeing similar ornaments in the stores. I love the way it came out and it was super easy to make. Look out for a quick pic tutorial tomorrow.  Sorry Picture issue. Have a tutorial by this weekend.
