Fresh Prints Quick and Easy Cards

I had a lot of fun making these cards today and will probably make more tomorrow.  Super quick and easy, just how I like them.
 This is the card that got me started with this set of cards.  I found a great card on Dawn O's blog  and I loved it so much that I just had to case it using different paper.
 There was also a card sketch also that should a card like this, so I tried it this way and loved it too.
I had a couple of downline promoting so they are getting this card.  Such fun and easy cards to make using the Fresh Prints DSP Paper pack for $6.95.  You get 48 sheets in the pack, just think of all the cards you could make with it!

Got Happy Mail!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day!  I altered this little mailbox and filled it with Hershey Kisses and donated it along with a SU gift certificate to the Benefit for Denny Hill.  Hope whoever ends up with it enjoys it as much as I did making it.  Have a good day everyone!

Tealight Birthday Cake

I had so much fun last weekend at the annual Scrapbook/Craft Retreat we go to at Camp Illiana.  I took a little bit of everything with me to work on.  When I found out that one of the gals birthday was Saturday I made this for her.  These are so much fun to make a way easy.  
Here is what I used to make it:
Sweet Sorbet DSP from the Sale-a-bration flyer
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana & Whisper White
Punches: 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, Scallop Circle, and Circle from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 
Tiny Pearls from Pearl Basic Jewels
Paper Snips
Glue dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue
*A few tips: Before added the scallop circle to bottom of tealight, place the circle where you want it and firmly rub over the area where the light switch is so it makes a mark, then using the small circle punch, punch a whole so the switch can be seen.  Attach bottom scallop circle with glue dots.
To attach the top scallop circle, using your paper snips pierce the middle of the scallop circle and cut from that point out in 6 directions.  Then cut those little points off.  You can now slide it over the candle tip.  You don't need to add adhesive to it as it stays in place by itself.  Let's see what you can do!  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentines & More Stamp Camp

Here are the 12 projects we made at the last stamp camp we held at the farm.  The first four belong to me and the second four belong to Kelly and the last four were done by Shannon.  I'm so lucky to have help from a couple of my downline, couldn't do it without them.  We usually have between 40 and 50 over our 2 day event so to do it by myself would be a bit overwhelming.  If you have any questions about how something was made, please feel free to email me or leave a comment.

A Little Chocolate Treat

Today I've got a fun little Hershey Kiss Treat Holder for you.  My good friend Sherri Culter and her husband Bill are house parents at The Pinehaven Christian Children's Ranch, out in Montana.  She told me the kids would love to make some Valentines.  This is what I came up with to send her along with the little punch art Love Bug I made last week.  I've got it all package up and ready to go.  I'm sure that she and the kids have fun putting them together!
Here's the measurements for the base.
Hershey Kiss Treat Tent. Cardstock is Coastal Cabana cut at 6 1/2" x 2", scored at 2 3/4" and 3 3/4", then punch the ends with tag punch.
