Valentine Treat Containers

This is probably the easiest way to make treat containers for your kids or the kids at your school. I used a paper towel roll and cut it in half. I used $1 ribbon from Target. I cut out two hearts from Plantin Schoolbook at 1 1/2" and 2". Stamped a Peachy Keen stamp on the red heart and used $1 stamps from Target on the white heart. I used the Zip-dry glue to adhere the ends together. On the inside I have six Hershey kisses! It only took me about 10 minutes to make from beginning to end.

Two-Page Hospital Layout

On this layout I used three different cartridges. I used the Plantin Schoolbook for the font on tall ball cut at 1 1/2".I used the B is for Boy for the bandaid cut at 1 1/2"and I used the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge for the doctor cut at 5" and the nurse cut at 4 1/2".

Throwback Thursday Challenge (My Entry)

For this challenge, I am submitting this card that I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I also used My Pink Stamper stamp set Family and Friends. I cut the doll at 3 1/2". I used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the layer of my card which I cut at 4". I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder and used some white embossing powder for the sentiment. I also did some stitching around the edge of my card and my label. I also used my sampler pack of bakers twine that I recenly got in the mail from The Twinery. I think that the twine just adds the extra touch.
