Fishbowl Friends Forever

Friends Forever

I just love this little 3×3 card; the little fishbowl is so cute! I received this card in a convention swap and I have no idea who the creator is but her little details really made this card! (If it is yours; let me know and I will update this blog post to give you credit!) I love the chunky gold glitter in the treasure chest it adds texture and pulls your eye right to the chest which might otherwise be overlooked! The three little flowers with rhinestones anchor the greeting and pull the color combo tightly together. Those two things alone make it a stand out card! The textured background and ribbon accent are an added bonus! My little pelican is keenly interested in these fishy friends!

Hearts on Fire

DIY Fire Truck Valentine

I think this little fire truck would make a perfect Valentine! There are so many fun little captions that could be used!

  • You set my heart on fire, Valentine! 
  • Sound the alarm, you are my Valentine!
  • This is no false alarm, you are my Valentine!
  • You are hot stuff Valentine!
  • Rescue me! Be my Valentine!
  • My heart is fire engine red for you, Valentine!

Paper Sweethearts

Paper Sweethearts

I just love the little Sweetheart candies! There is something fun about seeing what word you are going to get! While most of these little paper sweethearts are wordless; they still convey a fun message of love to the recipient. This is a 3×3 card so it goes together very quickly for having so many elements! The focal point with the hearts is scored into a small tic tac toe grid for easy placement of the hearts. I received this fun little card in my convention swaps. There is no identifying information on the card so if it is your card and you would like credits on my blog, just let me know and I will update my blog post!

A Heartful For You

Negative Space

One of my favorite uses of our framelits and dies is the ability to create using negative space in fun shapes! The heart framelits are a perfect negative space for Valentine’s Day projects. In this instance the negative space is covered with Washi Tape to make it pop! This technique makes for a quick and easy, but smashing card! I received this adorable little 3×3 card in my convention swaps. There is no identifying information on the swap, so if this is your creation and you would like to receive credit, just let me know and I will update this blog post!

Hearts A Flutter

Hearts A Flutter

I remember Valentine’s Day as a kid. I always looked forward to it. I think because we got to spend more time being creative at school and it spilled over at home, too! We spent hours decorating shoe boxes or paper bags, making hearts and Valentine’s cards. This was great fun for a child with creative interests! Even the little boxes of store bought Valentine’s were fun; they were filled with cute little puns. I loved going through the Valentine’s that I brought home and studying them. Some were silly, some were romantic, but all of them were beautiful in their own way. I remember laboring over who would get which Valentine; wanting everyone to feel like I was their friend without making them feel uncomfortable. I don’t know if I was successful or not but I do know that I left no one out. Everyone got a card from me! Hearts a Flutter is not a new set, but it is certainly a great set for Valentine’s Day cards. Little 3×3 cards are quick and easy with this set and you can pass around some warm, light-hearted fun this Valentine’s Day! This pretty little card is a convention swap from Beth Schreiber.

DIY BBQ Rub and Mason Jars

I love decorating Mason jars! It doesn’t take much to pretty them up! For the guys I made a BBQ Rub. This was a new venture for me…I have never made a rub before – but it is very easy! There are tons of recipes for rubs on the web; take your pick! My labels were created in My Digital Studio. The lid label I just printed as is and cut out with a circles framelit! It was perfect! The hanging label with the ornaments was modified by adding text and cutting out with a framelit from the Apothecary framelits. I just color matched the text I added to the colors from the lid label! I was able to print 3 sets on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White card stock. I used a coordinating discontinued ribbon that had a more masculine look. I dressed the label up with a rhinestone and added a frosted finishes embellishment to add to the festive look. My hanging tag is attached with the new twine! Love this twine! It’s great for the holidays!

DIY Foot Scrub & Bath Tea

I made the girls some great smelling foot scrub and bath teas! I found the perfect Mason jars! I just love the shape and size! The only stamping involved here was the just for you tag that I put on the bath tea. It was the perfect size and look for the bath tea bag! All of the other labels were created in My Digital Studio and printed out. The jar lid label needed no modification; it was printed out as is with no modification and cut out with a circles framelit! The hanging label just has added text which is color matched to coordinate with the lid label, printed, and then cut with a framelit from the apothecary framelits. I added rhinestones and frosted finishes embellishments for a festive look. I used coordinating ruffled ribbon for a more feminine look. The hanging tag was hung with our new twine! I typed up directions for the bath tea in My Digital Studio and printed it out on copy paper. I used a digital background paper and lowered the opacity behind the text. I printed four to a sheet double sided. The directions and tea bags fit perfectly in our clear envelopes!

DIY Baby Headbands

I made these cute little headbands for my great niece. I used some of our designer fabrics (which are a great bargain on the clearance rack right now) along with our brand new Spiral Flower Originals Die! The headbands and baby are adorable, don’t you agree?

DIY Gift Boxes

I had so much fun dolling up my gift boxes this year! The Gift Bow die is so easy and so much fun! I anticipate that my paper stash will be dwindling at a much faster pace from now on! Believe it or not each box fully decked out only takes 1/2 sheet of 12×12 background paper! I used the Snow Flurry die to make “medallions” for the smaller boxes. For the larger boxes I used all three images with coordinating buttons and candy dots. The candy dots are current…but the background papers and buttons are all discontinued items. However, we have some great new background papers and buttons to choose from that will make any box look fantastic!
