In an effort to thank all of our very generous Creative Partners, I wanted to make a few projects that would truly showcase each of the exciting gifts the Design Team have received.
So,... after much thought and consideration, I started out by creating this fun Pull-up Treat Holder with my brand new Scor-Pal. I chose this super easy to follow tutorial from Splitcoast.
My darling image is Winter Marci from La La Land Crafts. I can honestly tell you that each one of the DT members have fallen in love with these stamps! The display at CHA was so fun,... I wanted to take the entire thing home with me. Marci is such a cutie and so fun to color! I see many, many more La La Land stamps in my future! :)

P1000774 copyNext, it was time to cut out an array of Spellbinders with my brand new,... GORGEOUS Spellbinders Grand Calibur! What I love the most about the newest addition to my craft room is, how easy it is to cut multiple dies all at the same time and the embossing is nearly effortless!

Another wonderful product that the DT received was some of my favorite papers ever! I mean who the heck doesn't LOVE Basic Grey papers?  They are just the best, aren't they?
I always get such a kick out of making boxes and bags.  So, I thought I would create this little 3x3 note card holder, along with a set of note cards to match. Of course, I used Cindy's beautiful Heart Circle Elements stamps for framing my sentiments, too. The tutorial for the 3 x 3 box can be found here.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects.
I also wanted to take a moment to personally thank our Creative Partners for all of their amazing generosity! So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to:

There goes another weekend…..

I’ve just finished taking a few days off from work, so that I could spend time with family, (my very favorite thing to do), enjoy my Mom’s birthday by having lunch at the beach and last night we celebrated with the entire family by going out for a nice dinner. Not a single day goes by, that I am not aware of what a blessing it is to have my Mother in my life. She is…not only the best friend a daughter could ask for, but one truly amazing woman!
I love you so much Mom! P1000703 copy
The challenge at Scrappy Frogs is Flowers and Lace. Right up my alley and since I am having such fun with hand made flowers and my McGill Flowers punches this was such a fun, fun project to make!

SSCC Pastel Challenge

P1000688 copy It’s been a little while since I’ve played around with making a hand crafted flower…but once I picked up a couple of the Mc Gill Flower Punches….I couldn’t put them down… and then….I really couldn’t wait to show you what I came up with. The details in the punches for each petal are what really sets these flowers apart.

P1000687 copy

After I punched the petals and leaves, I added a bit of ink to each petal. When I had the flower assembled, I added a tiny but of Glossy Accents to the edges of the flowers petals and then sprinkled it with Twinklets Diamond Dust. The Mc Gill Flower Punches are available at Stamping Scrapping, along with a very simple and easy to follow video tutorial.

P1000697 copy

For my image, using the SSD Beaded Ovals set from Stamping Scrapping, I stamped and heat embossed a border for my sentiment from Papertey Ink.

I love, love, love the dimension in this flower!
