Cold Weather Crafting!

Hello Everyone,

It is super cold here in New York today.  I hope you are all warm and cozy wherever you are!  I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Day and had a relaxing day off for President's Day.  Since the weather here has been cold and snowy, I spent the long weekend in my craft room!  YAY!!  It was so great to spend a nice block of time in there.  I did a lot of organizing and reorganizing.  I made two scrapbook layouts and a card.  Not too bad. 

I'd like to share the card today.  I didn't put a sentiment on the outside.  I've kept it simple so that when I need a card in a hurry, all I have to do is put a sentiment on the inside and I'm good to go!

Here is my card
I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.  I used an Anna Griffin die to cut the shape and then traced the die and fussy cut it to make the shadow.  I had fun making this card.  If you'd like any of the details, leave me a comment below.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come by again to see what I'm up to.

Valentine's Day Treats

Hello Everyone,

Here in New York today it is really, really, really cold!!!!  I hope you are all safe and comfortable wherever you are.

For today's post I'd like to share some Lollipop Treat Holders I made for my niece Sophia.  Sophia is 3 years old, she's also my Goddaughter, and I have to say probably the most beautiful, smart, adorable child on the planet!  (That's my unbiased opinion!  LOL!) I just love her to pieces.  Anyway Sophia, like so many other little girls her age, loves the movie Frozen.  I was recently able to purchase a great Disney Frozen paper stack and decided to make her Valentine's Day card and some treat holders using it.  I forgot to take a picture of the card, but I did take pictures of the lollipop treat holders.  I think they came out really cute and I hope she likes them.  Inside the holders are Tootsie Pops.  Here they are:

I've seen lollipop treat holders on many websites and lots of people have instructions on how to make them.  For mine I played around with some dies for the flap and layered them two different ways.  I love the way they came out. 

If you'd like information about the treat holders leave me a comment and I'll be happy to share what I've done.

I hope you'll stop by again soon and check out what I'm up to.

Birthday Card

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone had a good weekend.,  Here in New York we are experiencing some pretty strange weather.  Yesterday the weather had warmed a bit and a lot of snow and ice started to melt.  This morning, my car had a thin layer of ice coating it and it was raining and hailing at the same time.  YIKES!!  Not a good way to start the week.

Today I'd like to share a birthday card I made for a friend.  I just got a new Anna Griffin die and knew I wanted to use it to make my friend's card. 

In addition to using the Anna Griffin die, I also embossed the sentiment using part of the new Anna Griffin Mix and Match Embossing Folder collection.  I just love it and I hope my friend will too.  If you'd like the details or have any questions, leave me a comment.
I hope you'll come back again and see what I'm up to.
