Words of encouragement

I was going through my stamp collection and came across the Encouragement stamp set from Jaded Blossom and knew exactly what I wanted to use it for.

I made these simple treat bags for my niece’s dance group. Just a little pick-me-up when they go to their next competition.

Until next time…have fun creating!!

I forgot to take a picture of the inside (darn) but it does say Happy Birthday to you.  I also added a strip of the gold washi tape from Sale-A-Bration to the bottom of the card.

Happy Birthday Kelly

As you already know I have busy with my new craft room.  I did manage to make my sister a birthday card for her 41st birthday in March.  So I used the new Balloon Bouquet Punch from Stampin Up to help me out.

Here’s what I came up with…

The card is a full 8 1/2″x 11″ piece of card stock folded in half.  The Designer Series Paper is from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Here is the inside of the card…

I cut out 41 balloons in total.  I also used some Wink of Stella on some of the balloons.  The sentiment comes from a Sale-A-Bration set called Perfect Pairings (unfortunately it’s no longer available).

Until next time…have fun creating!!

Easter Treats

Oh does it feel good to blog again.  I have been fortunate enough to get my own craft room and we have spent time painting and putting it together.  It’s now set up so I can craft and blog but it is still a work in progress.

I saw this awesome idea from Pootles and just had to make my own version.

Here’s how I made this project…

Designer Series Paper 11″ x 3 1/2″

Score on the long side at 1/2″, 1 1/4″, 9 3/4″, 10 1/2″

Score on the short side at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 3″

I used the Word Window Punch from Stampin Up to punch a window.  You could use anything that will fit in the space.  I also used the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and added a rhinestone to the center.

I would love to see your version of this project.  Feel free to link it up here or post it on my Facebook Page here.

Until next time…have fun creating!!
