Gotta love Purdy's chocolate

I've been playing around making little boxes and found this one, perfect for some Purdy's chocolate hearts. I left the window open but you could also put a circle of acetate on the inside to close it off. The DP make it so beautiful and I really love to give these as gifts. Hope you like it.
P.S. I found my inspiration from Julie Buhler's blog so please check it out. She has alot of lovely projects.


Milk does a body good

I recently purchased this tutorial from Becky Roberts to make these adorable milk boxes nestled inside a carrying case. This could be used for christmas, valentine's or easter with lots of room for hiding chocolates, socks, little treats etc. Very fun to make and so cute to give. Check out her blog and if you're interested, for only about $5.00 canadian you can purchase your own multi paged directions to make one for yourself. Great for a class for easter I'm thinkin'... I made mine with Valentine's in mind hence the pink and red. Happy stamping.


All occasion - finally!!

Well, finally I've put together an "all occasion" card class for my gals at work. I'll be bringin' an arm load of greetings for them to choose from. The class will be making 8 cards in total (2 of each design). I'm trying to do more masculine cards so I included a few here. I'm having fun with my new SU! goodies from the new catalogue. I really love the DP again (not a surprise) and especially the new textured DP. Great for boxes and other 3D projects. I love the funky tree stamp set and will play around with this set soon. Well, happy stamping and good night.

Scrapbooking revisited...

Well, it was time to try scrapbooking again. This time one page for each child. Thought I'd do a Valentine theme and try doing different techniques. This is a 6X6 page stepped up to a 8X8 and I chose a nine block pattern. Thank you to Alison Solven for inspiring my with this layout. She did a page awhile back using the same pattern and I fell in love with it. I did the heart using faux metal technique, glittered the chipboard letter, sponged the chipboard heart and used rub-ons for my words. Since there were many colours, I printed the photos in black and white. This was one of the projects for one of my club nights. I think framing each page and hanging them on the wall would be an alternate way of displaying the pages. Thanks for looking and happy stamping.
