Valentine's Day Catchup

I wanted to post two gifts I received for Valentines:

The first is from my mom. She just bought this heart box sizzix die and flower die. I showed her how to put it together and then a couple of days later, she surprised me with this:

WOW, she did a great job and of course mom's homemade cookies are always delicious!!

Next is a Valentine's Care package from Colleen:

Microwave popcorn in the decorative packaging, Gheridelli Cocolate candy bar in the decorative packaging and these adorable Asian erasers!!

Thank you, Colleen! You are so sweet!!

Brenda's Mini Album and Open Call for February's Tea swap

My January Tea Swap partner is Brenda, my absolute favorite Librarian! I call her the queen of mini albums because every time I see her, she is creating another mini album!!

First of all here is her gorgeous tea card that she said was created by a "sorority sister::

Then she created a tea swap journal!!!  The journal has 12 pockets for the 12 months of tea swapping!

and in each pocket, there is a tag to write a description of the swap, when I sent my card out and when I received a card from my partner!  Each tag has a different tea clipart. (They are all adorable!)

Here are some pictures of the inside of the journal:
 And a picture of the beautiful cover:

Happy V-Day!

I made these little treat tubes for my daughter to give out to friends.   College kids love things like that and she is a hero!    I used the February promotion "Whooos Your Valentine" from CTMH.  I even used my new Cricut to cut all the shapes out, using the Artist cartridge from CTMH.
All products are CTMH, except the candy!

Valentine's Favors

Sweets To All! Have you made your Valentines favors? These are some that I just completed, but still need to make more. Used the Sizzix pillow die; original pillow is a bit to small, so did some goggling and found someone that made one that was twice the size of the original. Cute huh! One fun size M&M fits nicely in the small pillow box; and got two fun size Snickers in the larger pillow box.
And, there's the mail boxes. Now they are the cutest! Hop on over to gigiscreativedesigns (thank you Gigi). Made with two Hershey nuggets and some leftover dp...go for it!

Happy Valentine's! Enjoy!

Supplies: Sizzix pillow die, Marvy circle punch, scallop punch, small heart punch,
bakers twine, ribbon, solid cs, dp & candies!

Ai Girlfriends

It's a birthday week at our house so I haven't done much creating. However, here is a card I created for my childhood friend who reached a milestone birthday last week.

I've been LOVING the Girlfriend series stamps by Art Impressions.  This one is the Workout Set (UM3584).
The inside of the card.  LOOVVEE IT!!  I got two other sets.  They look time consuming but surprisingly was quick to color.

Mmm...  Several years ago I just LOVED Stampin Bellas.  Now, I think these Girlfriends are so adorable . . . .  Mmmmm.  Am I showing my age??!!!!???
