Sweet Treats

To close out Feb postings, I am sharing the adorable sweet heart treats I made using my favorite DSP from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog, Painted With Love #145580.  The treats were simple to construct to fit 5 Dove chocolate hearts to slip inside the Stampin Up 2″X8″ cellophane bags #141703.

Musical Season

2018_02_25IMG_0666 I thought this card posted but it somehow got hung up duirng my flu crisis so I am posting it late. It’s already past the 25th of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas card post.  Today’s card is one that Cammie made using all retired products from the 2017 Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  She started with a Tranquil Tide card base and added a piece of the Merry Music DSP.  For the sentiment panel, Cammie featured the Musical Season stamp set and then cut the French horn using the Musical Instruments Framelits.

Celebrate Life

2018_02_26Well I thought I was going to make it thru the winter without getting the flu but low and behold it hit me over the weekend but thanks to the miracle of Tamiflu I am feeling alive and well again! To celebrate, I made this fun card featuring my favorite and most used stamp set in the Stampin Up annual catalog- Beautiful You #143004.  The patterned paper for the background and the dancers dress are from the retired collection Pop of Pink.
