Happy New Year!

So sorry for the long break! As you know Oct-Dec is crazy busy for me as I participate in a couple of boutiques as well as getting ready for the holidays. I will resume posting regularly now that the holiday madness is over. Here is a Valentine-sy banner that I made for over my fireplace mantle (but really perfect for year around if I forget to change for the season don’t you think? ┬áBecause HIS love never fails).



145580-Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, 145563-Lots to Love Box Framelits (for the hearts), 141712 Large Letters framelits

Valentine Heart Garland – More Amore


To give you some inspiration for Valentine's decor I'm reposting this heart garland I made in 2013 using the More Amore DSP, Red Glimmer Paper and Pool Party Cardstock!

Each DSP heart is made up of two each of 1" x 4", 1" x 5" and 1" x 6" strips.  The cardstock hearts are made with 1" x 5", 1" x 6" and 1" x 7" strips.

These treatholders are made using the largest Square (which is scalloped) from the Squares Collection Thinlits (#130921 – $27)

Valentine Basket

My first attempt at using the new Berry Basket Bigz Die (137366, $37.95) for the Big Shot…

Best Day Ever (SAB) stamp set; Crumb Cake and Real Red Cardstocks.  Real Red Inkpad; Bow Builder  and Heart punches; Tea Lace Paper Doily.


Valentine’s Banner/Garland 2015 #2


Another hanging banner/garland.  This one is a little longer than the one I posted yesterday but still petite (approx 2-1/2" x 15").

This time I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits for the base.  Sorry but the black "newsprint" DSP is no longer available but I'm sure you can find a way to improvise…

Valentine’s Day Banner/Garland 2015 #1


I love how this garland turned out!  It's not too big (approx 3-1/2" by 12") so perfect for hanging on a corner of a mirror or large frame.

I used up some of our old newsprint type DSP for the base but it can now be made using our current Typset DSP.

Other items:  Red Glimmer paper; Basic Black cardstock; Banners Collection and Hearts a Flutter Framelits; Little Letters thinlits; Hearts Border punch.


Blocks of Christmas Cheer and Love

12-8-14 samples-4611

I used the new Tiny Treat boxes and Trim the Tree DSP to make this double sided decorative treat box.  This project also features the Little Letters Framelits.

You can fill it with goodies and give as a Christmas gift which can be displayed on a shelf/mantle…when the new year comes it can be turned around to display for Valentine's day!

I didn't get them made in time for my holiday boutique but am putting some together this week to use as gifts.  I may have some left over for purchase so if you live locally, let me know if you're interested in an unfilled version (or maybe even kits so you can assemble yourself!).

Valentines Treats 2014

2-9-14 samples-9797

Combined new and retired products for my Valentine's treatholders classes.  Attendees can make 10 treatholders for only $5!! These are just  a few of the 10 or so designs they got to choose from.

Left: That's the Ticket stamp set; Primrose Petals inkpad; Crumb Cake cardstock; More Amore DSP; Petite Pocket die; Scallops TIEF; Hearts Collection framelits.

Right: Tags for You stamp set; Real Red inkpad and DSP; Silver Glimmer paper; Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

Bottom: Pretty in Pink DSP; Small Heart, 1" circle and 1-1/4" Scallop circle punches; Envelope Punch Board.

Hard Candy Wrapper Style treat holder

1-20-14 samples-9139

I figured out a simpler way to make this treatholder using our new Fresh Prints DS Paper Packs (which are 4-1/2" x 6-1/2") and the Envelope Punch Board. 

Tags 4 You stamp set; Real Red inkpad; Pool Party cardstock;  Silver Glimmer Paper; Label Bracket and small Heart punches.

I scored the long edge at 1-1/2", 3", 4-1/2" and 6".  The short edge is scored at "1 and 3-1/2".  I then used the Envelope Punch Board to punch holes along the intersecting lines.  Similar to the Christmas Crackers that many of you have made but I found this simpler and it looks more like a candy wrapper!
