Valentine's Day is just around the corner!

I created a Valentine's Day Box using the instructions from Tami White's site for the box here. She did a Christmas Box and I re-designed and made a Valentine Box!  Hope you like it?  (Thanks Tami for the great instructions.)

I added a little stuffie, you can't see it in the pictures but he has a cute little  on his chest!  I used Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations CS for the box.  Cherry Cobbler polka dot paper from the Regals Designer Series Package of CS to create the lolly and Silver Glimmer Paper for the bow cut with the Sizzix Gift Bow Bigz™ L Die.  The happy Heart day is from the Tags 4 You Stamp Set and I stamped with Cherry Cobbler Ink and fussy cut and then adhered to Silver Glimmer Paper punched with the matching Label Bracket Punch. I punched some little hearts in the Silver Glimmer Paper for accent.  The ribbon is Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched.  I love Valentine's Day, trying to get an "early start" for 2014!

Fun Christmas Creations

I created some envelopes using the Envelope Punch Board (3rd size listed).  I've seen these on several sights and Patty Bennett actually has a video on her blog on how to make them. 

I used the Winter Frost Specialty DSP, added the ribbon (Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon), one of the pretty Frosted Finishes Embellishments and popped in a Santa and Candy Cane (secured with glue dots), then into my little cello bags.  My hubby will give them to the girls he mentors at the golf club.  Oh, sorry, I didn't know he had six girls on the team and he wanted me to do these for them until after I "tried one of the caramel Santa's", good thing I had some Snowmen for back-up!  Ha!Ha!  You could play the little game with this pic' ~ which one is different?

Then I created some little snowflakes with some round peanut butter/chocolate candies I found (same size as Peppermint Patties).

Cindee Wilkinson had these on her blog made with Peppermint Patties.  Aren't they cute.  Just stamp the Snowflake from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set (I used Island Indigo), cut them out with the smallest Festive Flurry Framelit.  I used glue dots to adhere to the candy, one for front, one for back.  Added one of the Frosted Finishes Embellishments, popped into a small cello bag, done!

Tina's Birthday Card

I waited to post so I didn't ruin your B-day Tina!  LOL!!!  Actually, I've just been too busy......  This card idea is from Linda Heller's Stamping School that I subscribe to. 

It's called Can Opener Card: Birthday.  The little brad allows you to swing the senitment open and see the message inside!  Very clever, don't you think?  The card base is Island Indigo and the next layer is Pool Party.  The designer paper is Quartrefancy Specialty DSP.  The stamp sets I used were You're Amazing and Bring On the Cake.  I added some rhinestones to mine.  Also used the DSP to line the inside of the envelope.  Tina got it in time for her Birthday and "liked it"!  Yeah!!!!  Hope you do too.
