Heart Bag for All Occasions...WINNER!!!!

Hello, friends and Happy Monday!!! It is so nice to be here! I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and, for the US folks, are still having a great weekend!!

Today is my turn to post at the CutCardStock Blog and I have made a little Heart Bag and have shown how it could be used for more than a Valentine's Day project.


Although I have used a Sizzix die for the little favor bag and the die is discontinued, I have given you complete instructions which I think you will be able to use to replicate the project in whatever size you wish. So please come over to the CutCardStock Blog and let me know what you think of it!


WINNER!!!

Tea Boxes and SWEET STUFF!!!

Hello to all of you!!! And I can say that it is a joy to be back in the land of the living. If you read my last post you will understand why I have been missing in action and out of commission for several weeks. I hope that your past weeks have been much more pleasant than mine have been. BUT things are looking up.....FINALLY!!!

Today is my turn to post on the CutCardStock Blog and for December we are using the absolutely gorgeous Stardream Metallic Collection. For my project I made a couple of Tea Boxes--one quite simple and another more decorated...


For the blue one I used Stardream Metallic Vista CS and POW Silver Glitter paper. The NOEL is a small ornament and the dimensional snowflakes were made using the Layered Snowflakes Die Set and the Snowflake Mini Seal Die from Whimsy Stamps.




For the pink one I used Stardream Metallic Bluebell (Blue Topaz) CS and Stardream Metallic Rose Quartz (Pink) CS. For the floral treatment I used various mulberry flowers from WOC. The pregathered blue lace and the pink braid are from my stash. All of the other embellishments are from the beautiful Tilda (of Norway) Tiny Treasures paper pad and dimensional sticker pack. I have long been a fan of Tilda of Norway! As a matter of fact I met this Tilda at about the same time I met Tilda from Sweden. My first purchases were made possible in 2006 after I contacted the designer of this sweet Tilda of Norway, Tone Finnanger. She was so helpful and such a delight! These Tilda products are now available in the US and are offered by the talented and kind Traci Savely in her magnificent Art Attack Shop. I'm sure you will fall in love with these sweeties too!!!


I hope you like my projects and will let me know what you think of them. I have given a complete tutorial and more pictures over on the CutCardStock Blog and would love to see your creative take on my tutorial.


SWEET STUFF!!!!

$25 E-Gift Card!!!!!

I am personally offering a $25 e-gift card at the CutCardStock shop to one of my lucky followers. All you need to do is go over to the CutCardStock Blog, read my tutorial, and leave a comment letting me know what you think of it. The winner will be selected on Sunday, December 21!! Good Luck!!!


Thank you all so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon!!! I am so appreciative of all of the positive regard, kind emails, sweet messages, etc that I have received!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs to all!!!

WINNERS!!!!

Hello, everyone! I hope the past several weeks has been much more pleasant for you than it has been for me...Gosh!!! I had the oral surgery to extract two molars and a bone graft and shield with about a pound of stitches (it feels like) and have been back a couple of times for stitch removal in my mouth. At least I was in the twilight zone so I didn't know what was happening UNTIL the feeling started to come back...EEEEEK!!! Then if that was not enough, last Tuesday I had to go for my check up at the Cancer Center, and was informed that I had to be at a hospital in Asheville on Wednesday for yet another twilight time for some unmentionable surgery. Believe me, two knock out sessions within a month and the resultant aftershock has kept me out of commission and missing in action for these past few weeks!! BUT, things are finally beginning to look up!!! Whew!!

But I need to let Mr Random.org name the two winners from my last posting...so here you go...



Congratulations, ladies!! Please leave a comment on this posting and send me your mailing information so that I can get your prizes to you right away. I hope to hear from you before Saturday, December 20 at noon ET!

I will be back tomorrow with a project and a nice SWEET STUFF so I hope to see you then! Thank you for your sweet comments and your visits. Big hugs!!

Pocket Folders....Winner...SWEET STUFF!!!

Happy Thursday to everyone! I hope that you are all having a magnificent week and are almost ready for a great weekend! Sorry I have been missing in action but I have been so much under the weather...AND on Tuesday of next week I will have to have oral surgery including extraction of 2 teeth and bone grafting...so please wish me luck!!! I am terrified!!!

Today is my turn to show a project at the Holiday Countdown Series at the CutCardStock Blog and would love for you to come visit me there!! I made a couple of 6 pocket folders to fill with hot chocolate mixes and spiced cider mixes. The project is not something I invented but after seeing it some 6-7 years ago, it remains one of my favorite projects to make and have on hand when I need a quick little gift. 

On the first folder I used the lovely Holly Vine Die from Whimsy Stamps and on the second folder I used the cute little Letter to Santa from the Art by Mi Ran Collection at Whimsy Stamps. You can find all of my instructions at the CutCardStock Blog. I hope you will try it and let me see your creative take on this fun project!!


WINNER!!!

I am sorry that I am late with announcing the winner of the IO Christmas Icons Die Set and hope you understand. Mr Random.org has made his selection and the winner is.....
