Relax and Keep Calm

This was fun! I started with the Wine Bottle Tag from SVG Cutting Files, these are able to be used for more than just wine bottles, and as you can see this isn't a wine bottle. This is a relaxation bubble bath.  I then used the following Jaded Blossom products on top of the wine tag, Candy charms and banner die set, Treat tag Die, and Pamper yourself Stamp Set.
From Trendy Twine I used Grape Licorice, love this color!

This is being submitted into the following Challenge:
SVG Cutting Files Gifts Galore (create anything gift worthy, not a single card!)

baby announcement

In December my Sister in law will be bringing her second son into the world.  I did the announcements for the first child and just thought it would be great to do the same for this one. The only info she told me was that the room would be painted blue.  So this is what I came up with.  So very happy I have my Jaded Blossom stamps lol.  I used the following stamp sets all from Jaded Blossom: Baby Candies, Sweet Baby, Bug Candies. I also used Candy Charms & Banner Dies, as well as Journal Die set.

Thanks for taking time to take a look.  Please come back soon.

School Coffee Break

This was a fun project.  I started with the Crayon Slider Card from SVG Cutting files. Then I used Jaded Blossom's Gift Card Die (Awesome for adding a great spot for any gift card). And since every teacher needs caffeine to get through the day I included a Starbucks gift card which I used Jaded Blossom Flag Die 2 (cut in half) and stamped on it from Jaded Blossom's Java Time.  The twine is from Trendy Twine and there are 4 colors, Blue Berry, Peppermint Stick, Lemon Tart, and Twisted Lime.

caramel apples

This cute container started out totally plain.  It is the "My Creations Kraft Container from Close to My Heart.  It was a contest to come up with a design for it. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to enter it into the "Anything but a Card" Challenge for SVG Cutting Files.  I used the Kawaii Candy Caramel Apple file from SVG Cutting Files, so cute! The Twine around the top is Grape Licorice from Trendy Twine.  I used Candy charms dies and Wizard Candy stamps for the top of the container both from Jaded Blossom. It isn't in it right now but this container would look great with a real candy apple in it.
Thanks for taking a look.
