Valentine's Day Treats For Teachers

Hi friends!  I wanted to let you all know 
that I will be on a long vacation starting today!
I will be traveling to the other side of the world from where 
I live in Florida--all the way to New Zealand!
I will be on a birthday adventure for three weeks so 
I wanted to let you know to come back this way 
after the 5th of March 2019.
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Valentine's Day
this week and a lovely February!

I decorated these pillow boxes
with some of my All My Love DSP 
and filled them with the Dove chocolate hearts.
I cut the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched dies
and then the roses from the Lovely Flowers dies. 
I added a pearl on one rose and a pink gem on the other. 
I stamped the sentiment from Meant to Be in Lovely Lipstick ink.
I gave these to two teachers friends at Bible study this past 
week where I serve for preprayer before the study. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely week!

leader on Wednesday this past week. 

Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

dies and stamped the sentiment from Humming Along 
in Lovely Lipstick ink. 

I layered a piece of Blushing Bride card stock behind
 the background and then on a Lipstick base.
I finished it off with some Artisan pearls in Grapefruit.

I layered them one a piece of Flirty Flamingo that has 
been embossed with the Lace embossing folder and place on

Birthday Cheers!

I love black and white together.  I wear a lot 
of black and white clothes and sometimes I pop 
a bright color in like hot pink or red.
I also love black and white gingham print 
which I used here from the Butterfly Botanical DSP.
I added a piece of black card stock which I heat embossed the 
sentiment in white emboss powder from 
Perennial Birthday set. 
I had the butterflies cut from the Butterfly Beauty dies.
I cut a few of them off and used on cards earlier in the week.
I finished it off with some white sequin.
Fast and easy!
Hope you have a beautiful day and 
thanks for stopping by!

CTS307 Have A Beautiful Birthday!


Last week I cut the large Butterfly Beauty die 
with white card stock and snipped off one butterfly
I used on a card.  Today I have snipped off another 
and sponged it with Pineapple Punch and Highland Heather ink.
I placed it on the white stitched oval from the Wonderful Floral die
and added some rhinestones colored with Highland Heather 
Stampin Blend.  For the background, I stamped the 
sentiment from Painted Glass stamp set in Heather and 
then added the Gingham Gala DSP and ribbon.
I placed them on the Pineapple Punch card stock and the 
Heather base.
Just love the gingham paper!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Flirty Flamingo plus the cute detail stamp in Mango Melody.

of Flirty Flamingo and a Bermuda Bay base. 
I stamped the cake in Memento Tuxedo Black and the 
then colored it with Stampin Blends.
I cut the image out with the Rectangle Stitched dies as well as 
Bermuda Bay one behind.

Valentine's Be Mine Hearts

This was another attempt at designing a card for my 
classes this past week. I designed this with the two panel
sketch and layering lovely hearts but decided to go 
back to my first design.
 I stamped the white heart with Lovely Lipstick ink 
with the Meant To Be sentiment and layered with the Flirty Flamingo 
detailed heart plus a large stitched heart in Lovely Lipstick
along with the white stitched outline heart.  All these dies
along with the string of white hearts and the scallop 
stitching were cut from the Be Mine Stitched 
framelits dies.  I added the two panels- one in All
My Love DSP and the other with Flirty Flamingo card stock-
one the white base to finish it off.

I hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
