Sweet Treats

I've been hanging onto these tins for a little while, my husband received them in a care package with goodies and of course emptied them right away. So I decided to make some Valentine's Sweet Treat holders. Maybe teacher's gifts?

Sorry the pictures are blurry, I really wanted to post tonight so I used my blackberry instead of the camera. I know better for next time :-)

I used a different part of the patterned paper for each of the tins. It had strips of different patterns on it, love it!

I also wanted to share some exciting news, I have access to a bind it all!! I say access as it is my mom's but it's living at my house for right now, yippee! I made these cute little mini books. Now I just have to get my hands on sime wires.

Here's my cutie boy. He refused to go in his crib tonight and kept pointing over saying "bed" so I thought I'd give it a try. He got up twice, once to close the door all the way, apparently he likes to be alone and then the second time was to pull the string on his music maker. What a sweety!! He pretty much fell asleep within 10 minutes. The only other time he slept in the big bed was when I would carry him in when he was already asleep. He's growing too fast :-(
Happy Stamping!

Mini Paperbag Album

I started this super cute mini paper bag album for Madie's 8th birthday party pictures. I made it with two paper bags and some awesome glitter cardstock paper. Can't wait to get the pictures on there to finish it off.

The opening of the bags hold two pieces of cardstock to add some more pictures and keepsakes from the party.

I even added a little extra on the back to spice it up.

The inside flap has an extra piece of cards to do some journaling on.

The embellishments on the cover use a piece of the glitter cardstock in a scalloped circle punch from stampin' up and a glitter Bella donut.

I'll leave you with a cute picture from the party. We went to Adventures on Wonderland, a great indoor playground with lazer tag.

Happy Stamping!

Guest Designer Call

My super secret dream is to be a designer for a stamp company. Dare to dream.
Well guess what, Whiff of Joy has a Guest Designer Call and it was just the inspiration that I needed to get going. And look what I made...
I decided to make a Valentine's card for my super sweety. I used one of my images of Oakley with slipover cause he's such a cutey. I have to tell you I kinda struggled with the little boy hair cut but I like how it turned out.

Here are the details for the guest designer call. If it's your dream too, then go for it, don't let anything hold you back. And you couldn't ask for a better stamp company to design for. WOJ images are the absolute best!! Good Luck!

Stamps: Whiff of Joy
Paper: Stampin' Up! Not Quite Navy and Fancy Pants Patterned Paper
