Handmade font

Love the new Handmade Font!  Comes with Uppercase, Lowercase and Numbers. It's a different cookie cutter font too as they come in "strips" and the letters are attached by spacer tabs. You can leave them connected for easy of storage - or snip 'em apart with a pair of wire cutters to use the letters like regular Cookie Cutters ~ it's totally up to you!!

"Candy~Coated" Birthday gift

I took a spice jar organizer I found and decorated the lids, added candy, labeled with tags, wrapped in cellophane and gave to a co-worker for her birthday!!  It was a huge hit!  Now I'm in the process of turning another spice jar organizer into a Teacher's Desk organizer!!

Mixing dies & pre-made embellishments

When you don't have the right die to fulfill your creation ~ mix & match with pre-made embellishments and dies to complete the look.  Here is a card with a pre-made hot air balloon by American Crafts, and then I added in clouds from 4x4 star burst die and put the sentiment on a ticket die from Tickets die set.
