I (Heart) You

I decided to make a Valentine's Day candy box for my lovies this year.

I used Gecko Galz papers and ephemera. Specifically, I used: hopelessromance; heartwired and psiloveyou papers. I also used the alphabet soup products: loveletters1 and loveletters2. To give my box strength I printed the papers on 130# card stock. I added frilly leaves and the edge to the inner heart with decorative edge scissors. Then a little ColorBox chalk and Ranger Stickles and liquid pearls and waaa laaa!

Note: I also added letters to the candies inside my box to spell
M I N E !!

Enjoy and Happy Creating!!!

Our Newest Family Member

This is our DD with her little baby boy, T-Bone. He's a Tea Cup Chihuahua. We found him.....or rather he found her, yesterday at a local event we attended. He barked and yelped until we opened up his little cage. He climbed straight into her hands and went to sleep.

She had her Pit Bull, Ratchet, gunned down in cold blood December 9th last year. A lunatic neighbor who saw him out (he got out accidentally)....chased him down, cornered him and shot him point blank. Witnesses say the dog never indicated any menacing behavior, instead he ran from the man and was actually trying to wiggle back under the fence into the back yard when he was shot. The world is full of hatred and prejudice these days, it seems.

We think this little guy was sent to help her heal. I think he'll do a fine job, too. Don't you?

Artz de Scrap Gift House!

The ever talented Felicia came up with this awesome gift house tutorial at Artz de Scrap . This is a picture of her finished project. Wow! Huh?!

Each of us other designers had a shot at our interpretation of Felicia's super cool design. I did something a little different with Ten Seconds Studio metal, embossing molds and Core'dinations card stock.

I hope y'all will check out Felicia's tutorial and then roll up your sleeves and and give us your best interpretation. Remember there is a RAK involved!

Happy Creating!!!!!

at least it's above freezing and we have no snow or ice (except for the ice on the livestock tanks). I really wanted to get some pictures of a couple swap packages I received recently and share them with you, but Mr. Sunshine is not out today. So, I thought I'd share some pictures of some recently completed projects that I hadn't shown yet.

The first is a Halloween themed project I did using Gecko Galz papers and ephemera. they have some really beautiful designs!!'s one of those "HOME" wood cutouts you can pick up at discount stores for cheap. I covered it with Gecko Galz paper and created tags with the ATC and ephemera sheets. Then I embellished with vintage finds.

Hope you enjoy them. Happy Creating!!!
