Valentine Treats

Easy Last Minute Treats
Fill a coke bottle with M & Ms and decorate the bottle with B&T paper 
and a glitter heart. Tie ribbon around the top and add a tag card.
Cut an Art Philosophy or Artiste box with White Daisy CS. Cut 
out a heart shaped window and cover the opening with an Overlay
of your choice. I used the polka dotted overlay. Fill the boxes
with your favorite Valentine candy treat.

Just Because

I Heart Charlotte
And Color My Heart and Atlantic Hearts
The challenge colors at Color My Heart this week 
are the colors of the Charlotte paper pack.
I used the sketch above from Atlantic Hearts to make 
my card. Instead of circle shapes I used diamond
 shapes from the Artistry Cricut cartridge. The card
is embellished with the Charlotte Compliments and
Treasured Puffies. So grab your Charlotte and share
your creation with us at Color My Heart. If you missed
this sketch from Atlantic Hearts another new one
 will be posted on Monday.

Share the Smiles

 With Share the Love
I found a new CTMH challenge blog this week. It's Between the Folds: an anything goes challenge blog. This week the challenge is anything goes with the Charlotte paper pack. My anything goes project is my "In House Mail" project made with the monthly special stamp set Share The Love.
For every stamp set purchased this month CTMH will give $7.00 to the Operation Smile organization.
In House Mail box made with Charlotte paper pack.

Using the Share the Love stamp set I made six 3 X 3 note cards to go in the mail box. Then when someone in the house need some lovin'  just use a note card to send a message. Tuck the note under a pillow, attach to the bathroom mirror, or pop in the lunch box or the tool box.

Windblown Inchies

Having Fun with Inchies
Using the colors at Color My Heart color challenge I made some
fun inchies with the new Petite Perks: Windblown
Colors: Black, White, Whisper, and Slate
What are inchies? Small art pieces that come in inch sizes.
I used 1", 1.25", and 1.5" pieces of cardstock and B&T papers

sequins, and enamel gems.
What do you do with inchies? Add them to a card, a tag, a box, or a bag.

Colors of Kaleidoscope

Make A Fun Gift
Inspired by Aaron Brown and her adorable gift card set I made this gift card set for my down line.  Each note card is a color from the Kaleidoscope paper pack and is trimmed with the zip strip from that paper pack. I made coordinating gift tags with the Packages, Boxes, & Tags stamp set.

The  note cards with envelopes are inserted into a clear
 gift box and wrapped with seam binding ribbon.

Assorted gift cards in an assortment of colors.
