Kick Up Your Heels!

Who doesn't love a pair of cute shoes? This one is part of Hero Arts "High Heels" Clear Design set. Comes with the sentiment along with 3 other cute shoe designs.

I made this for my February One Card Swap (OCS) to give to Teri. I really hope she likes it....

Teri is taking sign ups for March's OCS - so go on over and sign up by the end of the month. I have a link in my previous post to her sign up and details for the swap. It's super fun and little stress since you only have to make 1 special card. And the best part - you get to share your hard work and creativity with other crafters who really appreciate the time and detail put into creating these beautiful cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

One Card Swap

Teri hosted a "One Card Swap" over at her blog: Big Ideas from a Little Girl, and I was so lucky to be partnered up with with her. Here's the beautiful and adorable card she made for me...isn't it SWEET!

I especially love the unique way she made the flaps of the card open. I had so much fun with this swap - thanks Teri so much for coordinating & hosting it!! Can't wait for next month..Click Here if you want to sign up for March.


Hugs & Hearts

Teri over at Big Ideas from a Little Girl created a wonderful tutorial for these cute treat holders. I wanted to give my co-workers some valentine wishes & candy, so these were the perfect size. Go and check out her tutorial - it's super easy and she's extremely talented. Thanks Teri for the great idea!!

I forgot to take photos of what the inside looks like..basically, you pull up the ribbon and the treat pulls out. These currently hold a box of the Sweethearts Tart Candy.

I used White CS, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folders, DP from Moxxie, Marvy Uchida Heart Scallop punch in two sizes and sentiment is from Hero Arts.


Baby Shower Set

I don't think you would be interested in reading or seeing pictures of the construction and paint we are doing throughout the store as we get it ready for opening, so I thought I'd start posting some projects that I've been working on...

I just attended a baby shower today for one of my girlfriends...she's having a baby girl. I wanted to make her something cute, so I started out with the card. I used this cute Giraffe from Imaginisce (Love these Snag'em stamps which retail for only $1.00!).

My favorite color scheme right now is anything paired with Dark Brown (esp Pink or Blue)...so I decided to use this colorful and happy orange to coordinate with the Giraffe. This became the inspiration for a goodie basket where I used similar shades of orange and the circle pattern to decorate the gifts I bought her. Here's what the final product looked like.

The Lion and Monkey are from Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo" stamp set. I love Mindy Terasawa's designs - they are absolutely gorgeous and adorable! The elephant is from Fiskar's "Baby" stamp set; and the DP is from a DCWV paper pack. The shower was lots of fun, I hope she liked the gift.
