This 'n That

Hey there!! Is anyone else having a hard time believing it's already the end of January?!?!? Anyway, I just wanted to stop by today to share a little of what I've been up to this week...just a little of this 'n that:

Stamps used: Bear and "i heart u" (MC16 - Fuzzy Bear 2)
Rose (MC-1 - Friend to Friend)

**I added little scraps of paper patches to the bear to give him a more cuddly look** Click here for the clear tote how-to's.

For the punched flowers, I used a Marvy (yellow) flower punch and stamped #933 (Funky Snowflake) for the center. You can also stamp "Happy Girl's Day" (Stamp #1027) in the heart for Girl's Day coming up on March 3!!

And last, but not least...here's another amazing card from Patti:

It folds flat, but as you open it...

out pops these two furry guys:

I'm STILL trying to figure out how she did that!!! If you'd like to learn how she did it, check out her blog...she has all the step by step details!!

Have a great evening!!!

Candy Apples

I was going through some pictures in my camera and ran across these photos of some party favors I made a few months ago. There's not much stamping involved...just 2 stamps...#4016 (Script Birthday) and the banner is from CL-4 (Happy Hello cling set). Anyway, just thought I'd share...hope you have a great weekend!!!

Easel Box Revisited

I went back to a pattern I posted awhile ago to make these easel boxes...I changed them up a little...here's one for Valentine's Day using Keiko (MC-11 Keiko cling set)...the heart and sentiment are from MC-15 (Fuzzy Bear 1)...and the heart border is from CL-4 (Lots of Love cling set):

Here's what it looks like opened:

Elliot and banner stamps are from MC-4 (Happy Hello cling set). Thanks for stopping by!!!

Fuzzy Bears

Hi!! Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and that your new year is off to a great start!!!! Just wanted to share our 2 newest cling sets for Valentine's...

Both sets come with an "extra hand" (paw) stamp that allows the bears to hold all kinds of things. Mix and match the stamps to come up with a variety of combinations.

Haven't had a chance to do much stamping with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays...looking forward to getting back into the groove!!
