St. Pat Day Wooly Lucky Tag - Simon WoolyLucky

Click here for What's Happening Thurs 2/25. 

Made this Tag for my Great Niece, Hartley.

Used Simon stamp Wooly Lucky. Heat embossed sentiment. Colored portions of the stamped Llama image. Added a scrap of ribbon.

Glad I found my Tim Holtz stapler and stapler refills. Usually after not using a tool or such for some time not always remember where to find it if it was not put back in a particular place. Last time this happened I bought another stapler and luckily before opening I found mine and was able to return for refund the one that was unopened. Have any of you misplaced an item, rebought & then found the one you had misplaced?

Flowers & Bees HoneyPot Tag - Hero Arts BeesFlowers, HoneyPot, Honeycomb Fancy

Click here for What's Happening Thurs 2/25. 

Made this Tag using Hero Arts Jan Kit.

Cut the honeypot using blue cardstock and the die made the pot fragile with all the cuts/slits. So to give sturdiness and have cut lines be more like ridge lines on outside of honey pot I used a piece of cardboard. Before die cutting the honey pot I used adhesive to attach the cardboard onto the blue cardstock and when I cut using my Sizzix BIGkick the honeypot had the look I wanted it to have.

Cut some Bees & Flowers and arranged.

Used some gold glitter, marker (tri-blend green) and shimmer pens for color & sparkle look.

Used Tim Holtz sander for distressed look of honeycomb.

#2 Valentine/LOVE Card - Hero Arts Floral Love

Click here for What's Happening Thurs 2/18.


Had mailed some Valentines to internet friends and they never arrived at their destination so I made new ones. Put these inside padded envelopes (when you use a padded envelope the mail is treated like a package and yes you pay more but you get a tracking number). Here's hoping these arrive.

Used Hero Arts Floral Love stamp/die for LOVE.

I have a way to use washi tape that works for me. I put the washi tape on an index card and then cut length I need and use adhesive to attach like at bottom of this card.

The washi tape is different than previous posted card.

Spellbinder: die - Scallop Heart
