I made this P.S. I Love You Coupon book for my husband for Valentines day.  I found this idea at Create with Connie and Mary...here is the link http://www.createwithconnieandmary2.com/  Check it out...you can purchase ideas there.  The designer paper I used is from the clearance rack...I didn't have any masculine current valentine paper, and this worked perfectly....so I used it!  Be on the look out for a Happy Birthday Coupon Book...I am currently planning a class and will post what we will be doing!  It was a lot of fun to make and my husband LOVED it!!!

Don't be intimidated by this fold....it's EASY!

This fun card was made with the Twitterpated designer paper.  I love the fold...I was a little nervous to try it...but it was really easy!  Simply cut your 8 1/2 X 11 paper in half so you have two pieces 4 1/4 X 11.  Score at 5 1/2....cut both pieces of cardstock from top left corner to the score line on the right side.  Then adhere the non cut pieces together...one on top of the other...then the triangle will fold in to look just like this!!  It's fun...try it!!!  Notice how a ribbon band make it more elegant and the cardstock band makes it more casual!!!

This is a cute...simple....very fast treat holder made with the Label Framelit Dies.  This one holds three Dove chocolate hearts, but you can score it a little bit narrower and it will hold three Hershey Nuggets....HAVE FUN!!!!

This card was one we made at my February Workshop.  I wanted to show my ladies that you can dry emboss with the Simply Scored scoring tool.  THANKS was stamped with the Outlined Occasions stamp set found in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  You can choose it for FREE with a $50.00 purchase.  The circles were punch with the 1" and 1 1/4" punch after heat embossing a stamp from the Mixed Bunch stamp set in SU colored embossing powder.  A simple clean card.


I created this card using the Sweet Cake stamp set and the Sweet Shop designer paper, also for my February Workshop.  Both are found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I embellished with circles punched out of cardstock, Basic Rhinestones, Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and White Bakers twine.  I wanted to use Pool Party Bakers Twine, but did not have any....it would have added a little something!

These are two of my FAVORITE cards!!!  They were both made with the Blossom punch form the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I used the Everyday Enchantment paper, which you can get for free with a $50.00 purchase.  It can be found in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  To make the flower I punched a backing in Old Olive cardstock and then punched three flowers out of the double sided designer paper.  I then cut the petals apart and adhered to the cardstock base...using a different side of each paper for each petal.  The butterflies are made with the Beautiful Wings embosslit.  The flower buds are made simply by overlapping two petals and adding a center made from Early Espresso cardstock, embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder and cut in half.    The stems were stamped in Old Olive with the Precious Butterflies stamp set found in the Hostess section of the BIG catalog.  The sentiment is from You're a Gem stamp set and punched with the Curly Label Punch.  I accented with an antique brad and basic pearls.  Be sure to ink your edges if you like that look....I love it!
