We did some footprint painting the other day and they had so much fun!  At first I think they thought I was insane!  But after I showed them what to do they loved it!

Love Sweets

Good morning!

I have a My Thoughts Exactly project to share with you today.

For this project I used stamp sets Sweet Thoughts and Many Thanks:
The love and kisses sentiments are from the Sweet Thoughts set and the heart is from the Many Thanks set.  I thought they were perfect for a valentine's treat package!!

And the package holds candy kisses!!

I used the stamps to create my own v-day paper!! 

I really like how it turned out!



The paper:

Before                                           After

 And lastly, I used some of my Creative Inspirations Paint to add shimmer to the paper!!

You can always check on the MTE Blog for some wonderful inspiration from all the DT members!!


Have a wonderful day!

Here's the project I created:
I didn't get all the little hand sanitizer packages created for Christmas for friends that I wanted to, as I was creating so many for my mom, so I used this challenge to create on for a friend for Valentine's Day.

Side view:

The tangled hearts die, is so much fun!
I added some CI Pain to the hearts to give them a little shimmer!

P&S Sponsor Ribbon Carousel

Paper and Such is sponsoring the Ribbon Carousel

--------------------

This week, Suzanne is challenging us to use NON-Traditional Colors for our creations. Making a valentine card? How about NOT using red or pink, or not too much of it anyways? Creating a gorgeous winter scene? Try it with creams instead of whites. Whatever you’re making….try a non-traditional palate as a challenge!

--------------------

I used the "Tree Graffiti" stamp set released by Paper and Such this month!

I stamped the tree twice and cut out the heart on one of the trees and then popped that one up onto the other one. As to kind of make it look as though the "you + me" was engraved in the tree! I think it turned out pretty neat!


Paper and Such Products Used:
Tree Graffiti
Jillibean Soup Apple Chedder Paper Pad
Cappuccino Baker's Twine


--------------------

Julie is offering the winner of the Ribbon Carousel challenge a $15 GC for Paper and Such! How exciting!!

And the Ribbon Carousel is sponsoring Paper and Such!!

 Join in, both the challenges for your chance at winning! We'd love to see what you create!!

Happy Birthday

Good morning!

I have a My Thoughts Exactly and Creative Inspirations Paint project to share with you today.

For this card I used Sweet Thoughts sentiments "birthday wishes"!

Firstly, I picked out my papers I wanted to use.  But decided that they needed a little extra WOW, so I used my new Resplendence Angel Dust!  I just love this glitter!!!  Using a Quickie Glue Pen I added glue to areas of the paper to make them look just like the glitter paper you can buy down town.  These papers turned out so nice!

 I just love how this card turned out!

I also used CI Paint "Sunshine" to add shimmer to the flames!

They went from boring...

to fun and glittery!!

You can always check on the MTE Blog and CI Paint Blog for some wonderful inspiration from all the DT members!!


Have a wonderful day!
