Love the cloud paper from American Crafts ~ XOXO line.  Thought it would be perfect for a hot air balloon card ~ different twist on a Valentines card.

Candy Cards

I bought these sixlets candies and thought they would be perfect for a card idea.  I made up a bunch of these cards to give to friends using paper scraps from other projects.

Jar of Kisses

I found this cute glass jar and filled it with cinnamon lips.  Perfect for my husband for Valentine's.
(dies used: Eyelet Circle Punches (new), Lip,  Lock & Key and Scallop Doilies)


When using dies that require eyes or small centers (flowers) instead of cutting out those teeny tiny pieces, use  pearls, gems or even googly eyes in place.  Saves time and frustration when trying to glue these to your die cut creation and it adds detail making the die cut extra cute!  I made these owl treat boxes for friends using my cameo but instead of cutting out the small black circles for eyes, I just added pearls.  I'll be making these in both kid's classrooms for Valentines and googly eyes will be perfect!  Try this technique today with the cute dies you have!!

Tissue Box

A friend of mine saw these small tissue boxes (3x3 squared) and thought I'd be able to do something cute with them.  Challenge was accepted and this is what I came up with.  I do think they turned out cute and sure my friend will love the addition to her house!!
